My Day, in a Roundabout Way

Friday, 18 March 2011


Well hello there, it seems I have found myself sitting in front of the computer in the early hours once more. It also seems that I have seen fit to spend this time typing my mind mumblings out onto the computer screen. So far in its (incredibly limited) wisdom, this is all that has actually managed to find its way from my brain to my fingertips. I guess this is the sort of thing that happens when you sit down to write something, not know what to write about and then proceed to write anyway.

I do know what I’m writing on here for, but I guess I’m trying to find a better reason. The main reason is that I’ve taken a few new pictures, but wait wait wait, don’t scroll down just yet, I’m sure I’ll find something fantastically terrific to talk about between then and the end. I must do! After all, look at this large amount of text in between here and the pictures! There must be something of at least slight interest in between then and now.

I’m going to tell you about my day. Why not?! That is I imagine what the whole point of a diary blog type thing. Can I call this a Blogiary? Urm, no, that makes me ill actually. Best not mess too much with the English language, it sure has taken a beating recently. But then again, when doesn’t it?! I’m probably breaking hundreds of grammar rules right now, making my whole point maybe a little ironic. Well at least my spelling isn’t carp.

Anyway, I need to tell you about my day. I was at work today, like any typical Thursday. It would have been totally like any other typical Thursday if I had not been asked to partake in a most peculiar task.

Sorry, I’m really giving this a bigger build up than it deserves. All I was asked to do was to go to a neighbouring town and fetch some more stock from another store. It really wasn’t anything more than that. But it did involve sitting in the front of a white van. Oh yeh, that’s right, for the day I was essentially a “White Van Man”. If you don’t live in the Great United Kingdom of Britain, you may not understand what I mean. Well, luckily we can break down and analyse the phrase fairly easily, in fact I’m going to assume you can work that out for yourself. The meaning behind it is that basically all “White Van Men” drive erratically and inconsiderately. In my case though, the white was more ‘dirt brown’, the van was basically a wreck, and I, well, I really do hate to think of myself as a man. But then again ‘Dirty Brown Wrecked Tranny’ sounds more like some kind of filthy porn. Something I really don’t want to see.

I have to say I really do hate the term tranny. It just sounds horrible. It’s probably because of the amount of times it is used for porn type circumstances. I always try to use the word transgendered whenever necessary, but to be honest, that last joke wouldn’t have been nearly as funny if I’d said that. In fact even the word transsexual seems to have negative vibes in my brain. I guess it makes it sound like a sexual orientation, so in that respect I can understand why people do sometimes not understand why gender identity and sexual orientation do not go hand in hand.

Well, there you go; I managed to find some magical combination of words to fill the space between the second paragraph and the pictures. Don’t you now just feel fantastic about life in general and enlightened beyond your wildest dreams? I hope you’ve not been completely baffled by me being in one of my weirder moods, but hey, at least I’m not upset!

Oh and if you wanted to know what happened at work: I went home and lived happily ever… err, rest of the day.

Ooh, one last thing before the pictures. I don’t think I have yet conveyed my love of the band ‘Air Traffic’, so please, consider this it. My song of the moment; ‘No More Running Away’.

    A seemingly very random post. I do agree with your views on the terms tranny & transsexual, they do seem to be associated with erotic material than real life.

    About the pictures: They are perhaps the best you’ve had yet! You look so feminine that it is impossible to tell your not a woman(beyond even you other pictures, which are just as deceptive).

    Hey Ella,

    Your day sounded ok, which in itself beats those around here, where we whittle away the hours waiting for the rain to end, the busses to actually arrive and run on time and for those so inclined, when the heck happy hour starts. [Then again, you like others have the advantage of a real office to work in. Around here, whilst I do work from home…I am also the staff for TheRoyalBadnesses, otherwise known as Rachel and Marissa]

    As for that blasted word tranny…yes I can see your point. Normally when in a chat with someone and the word comes up, to me the positive definition has to do with Dodge Chargers of a particular vintage that had very large engines. The same ones that also sounded like the voice of doom [Or god dep one’s reference at that time] when they rode around the neighborhood. But the other definition….well not happy with that because even here in the states, it has a rather ugly connotation, so it is pushed to the side.

    Your logic works, so do not worry about that. If this helps any, the lucidity of Your blog is a far cry from others who wind around like a bad road, only for there to be no sense made at the end of the trip. That or containing more vitriol and vinegar than an upset group of footie[soccer] fans.

    So keep on writing….it is a breath of fresh air *S* [Oh yes, please check the emails when You get a chance *S*]

    Til Later and Love Always,

    i had others call me more shemale than tranny. i tell them im transgender. Love the pics. 😉

  4. Felicity Says:

    Well, that was, um, erratic : ).
    Still fun to read though.
    Great pics too. Love the outfit. Your make-up skills seem to have improved too. Not that they were ever bad, in these pics it just looks really good.

  5. Cami B Says:

    You look more and more terrific each set of photos.

    Totally agree with you on the terms. When I get asked (online) if I’m “TG/CD/TS” or whatever I tell them “Woman”. Go with that. Own it. 😉

  6. pinky Says:

    i love reading about your days. whatever happens to you is interesting to me somehow. and your spelling is not “carp.”

  7. Heather Says:

    Hi Ella,
    It’s great to hear from you. Thanks for the new photos.
    I swear you get more beautiful with each passing day.

  8. Angela M. Says:

    Good to read another post from you and know that life is not getting you down. I love your photo’s and wonder why you don’t go girl mode full time, you are so pretty. Is it perhaps your job or family, friends and co-workers would not be receptive or is it that you cannot bring yourself to totally come out in girl mode. You seem to be a natural when dressed re: vacation time and your trip to the club and also seem to regret having to go back to boy mode. Would this not go so good with Sara or would she be OK with it also.
    Luv & Hugs Angela M.

  9. A Hua Li Says:

    Great Pics Ella. I myself have only just stared to realise that womens jeans are perfect for showing up your body with feminine curves =)

  10. spacial Says:

    Great post Ella.

    Great to see you’re surviving the chaos of life.

    Till next time.

    Incidently, agree with you about the term Tranny. To me, that’s a small battery radio.

  11. BecomingBrooke Says:

    Glad I found your blog. I blog about transgendered issues I’ve faced as well.

    I personally agree with trying to avoid the words “tranny” and “transsexual.” It seems there are a few ideas on this, for me I am a normal girl and therefore to be a “tranny” makes me not a normal female. For others, the word tranny is powerful it’s how they define themselves. They want to reclaim the word. It’s really all a personal preference.
