I'm certainly not a Mexican food aficionado, but I really like their fajitas, and their...

Wait, what?

OK, you're starting to scare me.

Steph, so glad you're greasing the skids towards your GCS, a 3/9 consult sounds like you might be scheduled for surgery this year!!?

Such good news from FLA, now just keep sending us your weather (temps are heading to an unseasonably warm 70 today after 2 months of unusually cold weather it's surely welcome! :-).

Hi Sadie!

I found out yesterday that it might be pushed back a week, to March 16th. That’s ok. I need more time to arrange transportation and lodging anyway. The goal is definitely to get it done this year if at all possible!

Tell you what, anything over 75F  is yours! You’ll have to transport it, though.

Indeed, 70 is way too hot for me already, being acclimated to riding in 20-30, these early warm days come as a shock!

However I plan to take full advantage :-)  by the time last year I was able to start riding any miles we were into October and my labia were still hypersensitive. I plan to get in some miles today, will report in later :-)

I’m back at my primary doctor’s office this morning for some lab tests. One of the things I planned to talk to them about is the way my name is listed in their records: Stephanie (Steve). Before I got to that the nurse came out to call a group into the lab waiting room. I heard “Steve?” Oh crap, now what? “Steve??” At that point I decided, nope, that’s not my name. She called one more time, then paused and said, “OK... Stephanie?”

“Oh, that’s me!”

I got up grinning and a lady facing me smiled up and said, “You don’t look like a Steve!"

“I know! We need to get that fixed!”

Heh heh...

Stephanie (not Steve!)

Enjoy your ride! I’m sure I won’t be riding anything for a loooong time after my surgery.

When we got home my bestest friend Cassie rang me up for a video chat, and we shared girl talk until we both faded out. What a great day. A lot of them are like that lately.

Steph got a front-row seat for a live cooking show - Cassie's Culinary Curiosities. Stir-fried vegetables with tiger shrimp in white wine over cous-cous.

She complained about the lack of narration but I could tell she was busily composing her post on here. :D

And did she share that delightful delectable delicacy? Nooooooo! Something about her transporter being down.

Hrmph.

“Oh, that’s me!”

I got up grinning and a lady facing me smiled up and said, “You don’t look like a Steve!"

“I know! We need to get that fixed!”

Heh heh...

...and the adventure continued. We were seated on folding chairs in the lab waiting room (you can sit here in the waiting room or you can wait here in the sitting room...) and the other lady in the room started bantering about these seats were so much more uncomfortable than the ones out front, and we chatted for a while. The nurse called me out into the hall and whispered, "do you want to be called Steve or Stephanie?" Stephanie for sure, we need to get rid of that "Steve" stuff.

When she called me in for the blood draw she asked, "You used to come here before, right? How long ago did you make this change? Your hair used to be short." Considering that my hair is about 14 inches from the nape of my neck, it would have had to have been a long time for it to grow that long. I assured her that my hair has been long ever since they've known me. It was just tied back. I then ended up being educator. She had all kinds of questions about transitioning, and I answered them all honestly, including, "Are you happy now?"

Big smile. "Oh, yes."

A few more questions... and suddenly something changed. I imagined an almost audible "click." And she was off confiding in me about her boyfriend, how he made her knees melt, how handsome he was... She dug out her phone and pulled up the picture of them together, "Look at that smile! His teeth are so perfect!" I've got to say, he did nothing for me, but I don't lean that direction. Trying to think of something complimentary, I said, "Wow, look at you two together! Gorgeous!" She smiled happily.

Somewhere in there I stopped being Stephanie (Steve) to her, and became just Stephanie, somebody to share girl talk with. How very cool...

I believe the root cause of that is one of those localized gravity storms, though I'm not sure if it was on your side or mine - they seem to be happening near both of us. The transporter goes into lockout mode whenever gravitic anomalies are detected, for safety. The last time I tried to override the safeties to send a food object was when I sent a fried bologna sandwich through to a friend. What arrived on her side tasted rather...purple-ish.

Mmmmmm... purple. It’s an acquired taste.

Yes, the gravity storms are definitely raging around here. Everything is heavier than it used to be.

 Hi Ste((ph) an) (ie)

  The Coyote Rojo is sure located conveniently right off of the I75 on West C 48, right in the midst of the others businesses all around. The Citgo gas station next door and the Bushnell Inn behind it. You could opt for a burger at Wendy's across the street and even shop at Wallyworld. Fajitas sound good.
  I'm sure you are nearby too....

Hugs,
   Laurie

OK, you've demonstrated your Googlemaps-fu. Just West of WallyWorld is a small strip mall where Darrell's Doggone Good Food is. That's where my party was after my name change hearing. We just had breakfast there this morning, and if a certain lorry ever shows up here, the driver will have to accompany us there.

Don't buy fuel at the Citgo. Their advertised prices are for cash, very misleading.

Oh yes, I'm close. I think you can figure it out, knowing my hobby and business...

  No I don't usually buy Citgo but it is conveniently placed. Good food is always nice. and no you can't Hide you know I'll hunt you down and once in the neighborhood all I need to do is ask a neighbor... They all know you or I can look for a roller skate in the driveway. Rest assured I can find you.  To quote an old TV show "Sometime, somewhere when you least expect it..."
