Oh, give it a rest Spock. I don't want to hear about your Countdown pwnage story and Carole's mistake with a four category prime and the imaginary number. Go and annoy, Bones or something.
I've not idea why I type that in. Perhaps in the pint of Hobgoblin I sunk earlier, has left me a little confused. What a lightweight. I'll be mincing it up in lady's clothes at this rate.... :-P

The Goldilocks Post
The observant amongst you will have noticed that I didn't go to the last Chameleons meeting. A combination of cold and the Meh Factor. This time, however, I was in finer fettle and a more interested mood to boot. Indeed, I popped in to a shop on the way home to see if they had anything nice in. I had had my eye on a monochrome top, although as it was in the petite section, I was hoping it would work as a tunic. Sadly, it did not. Not because it was too short, but - and perhaps trying it on sans false boobs - it didn't hang right. Even with a bit of imagination, I felt that it might be a tad low. So, I didn't invest. The jeggings I'd taken in with me, they were too baggy, so I left feeling a little out of kilter. Funny how a less than successful shopping trip can do that to a person.
Once home and fatherly duties over with, it was time to pack a bag for the night out. Now, I can rarely make up my mind what to take...... Except this time, I found two skater style dresses in the cupboard. Much as it may be a bit of a downer to leave a shop feeling nothing fit right, finding two pieces you do like and that make you feel good; well, that's a feeling you just can't beat. With a spring in my step, I headed off to Chameleons the day after.
Dare I say, it all went very well. If it was the absence of not going previously, or just Things Falling Into Place (tm), I don't know. But, hey, don't look a good mood in the mouth. Hmm, does that even make sense? :-) I went with my first choice and that seemed to work just fine. Plus one of the good-mood-o-metre. Next, on with the slap and having tried and failed with the bold red lippy this time, I went with a more subtle look for the eyes and then careful application of said lippy. Again, I was happy with the result and everything was coming together nicely.
I decided not to head out afterwards. It was very cold outside and having had such a lovely evening with friends, I was happy to head home a little earlier to see my beloved Mrs J. Indeed, I got a text just as I parked up on the drive. Timing eh?
Oh, one final bit of news. The other month, a drama student contacted Chameleons asking about the idea of a stand-up story. No, not stand-up as in make them laugh; more monologue on what it's like to be LGBTQ. I'm one of the fabulous five, so why not? A short ponder and then my fingers danced across the keys as I typed it all out. I won't say it's brilliant, that's down to the magic of the performance and any tweaks the students make. I believe the production is under way and with a little luck, there will be some YouTube videos of the actors. If there is, I'll post a link up.
