Gotta love the complements

I was in town for my usual weekly electrolysis treatment. Since we live 40 miles out of town we try take care of multiple errands when ever we're there. As a result, I stopped by the grocery store to pick up a few things to save a trip into town later. While I stopped to sample some new brand of chili, a lady stopped to tell me how much she liked my blouse. :o)


Gotta love the compliment.

Extreme frustration is setting in rapidly!

I ordered some underwear from an online site. Please don't take me to task for that, okay? The package arrived after many days and all was as ordered...except.

Their ad stated that their bras run small and they advise people who order them, to order them two full strap/band sizes larger than they usually wear, a good thing as it turns out.

A relevant fundraising campaign

Hey everyone! has an Indiegogo campaign going for a new style of tucking panties. They're designed for all-day wear, unlike the thong gaffs that everywhere else sells. As a bonus, people who don't necessarily need them can instead donate pairs to Point of Pride, who donate binders and forms (and now these!) to low-income transgender individuals.

Say Yes to the Dress

So lots of billboards up hyping the Bridal shows around town. Many with the "Say yes to the Dress" slogan.

Except one was for a Plastic Surgeon, did not read the whole thing as I was semi outraged and laughing as well.

the following is just my little addition

BC Credit for Amazon Purchases

I followed the link and I think I lost the BC referral (tag=dopplerpress-20 in the URL) as soon as I left the "Books" section of Amazon. It stayed missing if I clicked "Best Sellers" and then clicked "Books" again. Does that mean that BC gets no commission if I search out a teapot (for instance) even though I entered via the link from BC?


The Selene Vagi-Gaff?

Has anyone on the site actually bought and tried this?
How comfortable is it?
How comfortable is it to wear for, say, 48 hours?
Are there equivalent items that can be worn for longer periods?
How many of us as adults successfully and non-painfully can get our balls back inside?
I can't bend my penis comfortably down and under .... what do others do??

I can't write an upcoming story without real knowledge!!
Thanks for any replies

Anothr retail store front dies!

Another Electronics Retail Chain has died.

Radioshack has been laid to rest and they will be auctioning off the assets of its Dallas, Tx Corperate office.

Like those who fell before, CompUSA and Circuit City, they failed to adapt and move with the changing world.
First Wal-mart moved in by offering a selection of products that directly competed, I know from experience with Best Buy that they started letting people go and pushing there employees a lot harder so the experience went down, started only offering over priced in house labels of accessories, etc...

Wearable Coffee?

WTF? Wearable Coffee?


I received a polo shirt for Christmas made with fabric. S.Cafe has a patented process to turn USED coffee grounds into yarn, which they then use to make clothing.

So you can drink your coffee and wear it as well.

Halloween Ideas Please

A couple of years before I joined this site I made my first - and so far my only - attempt at cross-dressing for a Halloween do. It was a wicked witch of the west thing, and it went down pretty well. The only problem I had was with the underwear, which wasn't my size and made me feel really uncomfortable.

To cut a long story short, my knickers kept falling down.

Girly glasses, girly shoes and an expanding ponytail holder.

In a comment to my blog, "Acceptable shoes" someone accused me of pushing the envelope and I freely admitted doing so. The "push the envelope" bug has bitten me again.

Anyone else floating in the same boat?

Since childhood i am fascinated with long hair. A thick curtain of long, loose, flowing, silky waist length hair. My heart aches with those little things that can be done in open and in public(as taken for granted by some beautiful creation of God). The cute tuck of hair behind the ear, the slight head movement to get the hair out of face or the full head toss over the back. The casual beautiful head and wrist combo movement to toss the silky mass back over the shoulder. The gathering of hair in one hand to put on a necklace or lean down to blow a candle.

Advice needed please

I help run a yearly convention. A year and a half ago or so, one of our attendees transitioned MtF. As far as I know, she has had no troubles, other than some wrong name usage (she has been coming to the convention for 10+ years). The wrong name usage dropped from last year to this year. Even my very conservative friends have treated her well, doing their best to use her correct name.

I remember : "The Beauty Parlor &The Machine"!

I remember trips to the "beauty parlor" with my Mom, but I was only a boy, at least that is what everyone saw. *sigh*

This started out as a reply to Dottie's story "The Machine", but it kept growing.

Note: Not Fiction, yet sort of a a story, but it just might spur a story later on.

oops I shouldn't do that

Stopped for coffee on the way to the doctors this morning, the girl working the register loved my leggings and was shocked at where I got them.

then she got upset because I wear a smaller size than she does.

gotta remember, do NOT tell people I fit Ardene size XS

or in number size 3 or 5 depending on the material.

it isn't my fault fat is allergic to me.
sheesh, I have been struggling to keep my weight over 130 pounds for years.

Wearing men's clothing

Those of you who bother to read my blog on a semi regular basis, are aware that I don't wear men's clothes at all, except at work. That doesn't mean that I don't present a masculine image on occasion, such as church and family events. (Not all my family is aware of my trans nature.)

Cool Prize

I bought a Panasonic Wet & Dry Epilator in Pink & White $106. I got it on deal for only $8.57. I can't wait. I have previously won 2 $10 gift cards on there for only a single penny each. I'm in some auctions to get Aava silverwear. it retails for $679.

One size fits all!

I suddenly thought of BC friends when thinking of what to wear. Why not stretch your cultural boundaries, especially as these possibilities have the advantage that fitting is no problem as one size fits all!

A great place for inexpensive wigs and clothes

I just found a great place on the web for really inexpensive wigs and clothes as well as jewellry. It's

The prices there are unbelievably cheap. Wigs I've been paying 30-50$ for are under 20 dollars. They also have human hair wigs from 50$!

I don't know the quality of their merchandise, but I have placed an order online and will let you all know how good their stuff is or isn't when it arrives. Check them out. They even have clothes and swimwear for plus sized gals.

What Happened to Business Values? (Editorial)

When was the last time a company made you feel like you were more than a profit center for them?

These days we deal sometimes daily with Insurance Companies, Utility Companies, and even Retail Stores, who all feel they are doing YOU a favor by letting you buy their product.

What happened to the days of companies trying to earn your patronage with kindness and respect? Why have service oriented businesses stopped offering a real service, and instead treat you like a profit center?

In need of an honest opinion

Okay, I know everyone asks this once in a while. I sometimes look in the mirror and see I'm pretty and feel I can pass as myself no problem and others I question myself. I am hoping I can get a few people to offer an honest opinion if I look good or not. I know my chins gotta go it horrible and my nose is huge. good or bad opinions are accepted. Thanks for putting up with my silliness.

Women buying men's underwear is NOT equality

Women are buying men's underwear

Article’s original title :-
‘Why women are buying men’s underwear’ – copyright acknowledged per Guardian 29 Oct 2014

The article says it was ‘Prompted by the M&S claim about half of their men’s underwear is bought by women. Meanwhile, Acne have launched a line of ‘gender-neutral’ underpants.’ It then asked the banal and feeble question - Are men’s undies the latest example of unisex fashion?

Nice hair color

Over all appearance makes the first impression. Different people rate different things first in appearance. Clean fresh look of course is important. Makeup tricks so the "wow" appeal is visual impact. Clothes are up there at the top of first appearance. How many don't pay attention to their crowning glory, their hair? Sure they brushed it but did they style it and make sure the color is theirs?

A moral dilemma

In the last five or six years, I've been spending all of my free time (time not at work) wearing 100% women's clothes. Even at work, only my outer wear is men's clothing and only then because I'm a truck driver and my company issues a uniform; otherwise I'd be in women's jeans and polo shirt. Even at work, I wear a bra with breast forms as well as all other women's underwear, including my socks. Even my shoes are women's.

Ma just called. It's past noon back home, but I guess she doesn't realize it's about 1:30 in the morning here. Sassafrassa...

She called to say we should postpone our delayed visit yet again as Winter Storm Ion is gonna be bringing extremely cold (dangerously cold, in fact) arctic air to most of the U.S. Northwest for the coming week.

Ma says the East Coast will not be too affected yet but it's best to stay put here in Manila.
