eventful day yesterday. An outdoor Tiki area. Lori and I went to check it out since I'll be playing there next week. We've been there many times before just not on a Sunday. Decent crowd, pleasant weather. people were scattered which left no tables fully open. We ended up near our 'normal' seating area behind a couple guys.  We did the 'pardon our intrusion' introductions.

Over the course of the next hour the one guy struck up conversation(s). At one point I lifted up my sunglasses to look (and make a face at him, hee) and a few minutes later he asked me to lift them up again. Then he responded with, "I'm a sucker for a woman with blue eyes" I had suspicions and when I asked Lori, she confirmed it  .. he was flirting with me.

It finally led to him asking how we (Lori and I) knew each other. Lori left it simple and didn't say we were married. I gave the basic background of her being a friend of my sisters and that's how we met. Which then led to leading questions that culminated with the fact that we're a couple.

He turned to his buddy and said, "Great, I finally meet a woman that I can talk to and she's gay."
I didn't correct him on the gay part as I didn't want that to lead anywhere. His comment wasn't insulting, he did it in a 'just my luck' kind of comment. It also didn't stymie the conversation.

Very rewarding afternoon all around.

Talked to my therapist and she agreed that I was fine to drop to every other month sessions. That means I can start electrolysis again, and I did so yesterday afternoon.

I found someone local, costs more per session but easier to schedule and closer to me so an easier drive. She finished, for the most part, my lower neck that the previous electrologist thinned out.  Very comfortable session with just a healthy dose of 10.5% lidocaine.  She will provide a stronger numbing cream when it's time to do lips and goatee area.  Apparently she also does pre-surgery clearing. I doubt I need any more of that but it's nice to know.

Recovery is easy. Ice pack last night, healing lotion today. You can see it in a photo, not too bad though.

Three gigs this weekend, played one last night. Show was ok except for one confrontation.

Guitar players 'wife' (they aren't married) takes it upon herself to tell complete strangers about me. This time it happened where I knew about it. I got in her face, loudly, and called her to task. Saying that I 'saw red' would be an understatement.

I really don't feel like expounding, suffice it to say  while she is always doing things to be center of attention, I don't think she liked the kind of attention she received from me and those close by who could overhear.

The guys wanted to know what happened so I told them, they sided with me, of course, they didn't like how I did it at a show in public. I didn't care, it had to be done. I told them I'd quit the group before I'd put up with it anymore.

The guitar player said he'd talk to her. Trust me, he will and she won't like that either. He's very supportive of me and she steps out a lot. It's not the first time, simply the first time that I was in a position to respond.

Hopefully, that will put an end to that.

Bullies will continue to bully as long as they can get away with it. Good for you standing up for yourself. Nobody should have to put up with that.

Maybe the journey isn't so much about becoming anything.
Maybe it's about un-becoming everything that isn't really you,
so you can be who you were meant to be in the first place.

It was my "fat finger" typo mistake... at least I had the day "Monday" correctly stated.

Your birthday posting is all fixed and now has the correct date... the 10th

HUGS, Danielle

Hey all. I haven't posted an update in a while, and it could have been longer. Absolutely nothing to report other than getting older. I played bachelorette for 2 weeks while Lori was on vacation and out of state with her sister. Most boring 2 weeks of my life.

OH .. 2nd session with the new electrologist, I'll probably keep going to her despite the large price difference per hour ($150 vs $95). It beats not getting home until 7:30-8pm. The drive is shorted and easier. 1st session left me with a 'hickey', per accusation by our drummer, I blamed the keyboard player. OMG, the look on his face  :laugh:
