A MTF transgendered person was killed this morning in my city. Devastating. I loved taking part in the protest on Saturday, but I've decided that I need to do a little detoxing from the news lately. I'm depressed; it feels like the bad guys are winning. JMG has a great piece here on Newt Gingrich and how he loves all three of his traditional marriages. I'm over it, I can't take it anymore. I think I need to see Religulous. It might help me feel better. Watching the trailer makes me feel better already.

Time to Make a Spare
Tonight I got home from work at 9:30 and started taking the garbage out to the curb in my $9.99 Target heels that are too big so I stuff the toes with paper towels. Half-way through the ordeal, I realized that I needed to change shoes because the SNOW was probably ruining the cheap plastic and I need these babies to carry me through next year. So I tried the back door . . . yes, locked. Frick. My back up plan is always to walk the mile to my sister's house and get her key. But in heels? Double frick. So I had to get a key from the 200 year old woman next door (mom of the slumlords.)
