Fade Away

There were many pieces of public arts which encouraged by the council sprung up from the 70s and 80s obey the years they've been painted over or removed. The very few out of the many beautiful murials adoring the side of buildings are the Arkells murial on Country Road and Ken White's Whalebridge painting which I mentioned many years ago on Fleming Way and this one which has just been neglected and allowed to slowly fade away.

Transgender day of remembrance 2023

To remember a lot of things Brianna Ghey, Alice Litman and many more and their loved ones mourning. To support those fighting harsh legislation on all continents and the failure to ban conversion therapy on these islands leaving many at risk of further torture. 

Like other marginalised groups over time it is about ensuring you're never alone.

One of those things you notice is that you can make a good stab at someone's generation by whether they dangle their backpack on one or both shoulders, group of secondary school children wearing it on both shoulders, two middle aged people within a minute of each other both dangling on just one.

Some pictures of the Locarno/ Corn Exchange another one of those lovely ruined buildings in Swindon you are sure everyone in authority is waiting for it to finally fall down so they can put a car park and some half empty shop/ office units in its place.

Self Awareness

If there was a list of people who have done things which means they should be wise enough to keep their mouth closed and never say anything ever again Lance Armstrong would certainly at the top but there we are as recently he took to the social medias announcing that he was launching a series which will "dive into' issues around transgender athletes competing in sport" because he is an expert at fairness. Given another person on the list George Osbourne was doing the media rounds recently, it seems there is a big overlap on a Venn diagram between those on the list and those who have any self awareness.

Trans Day of Visibility

After a period of invisibly,  no particular reason, pure laziness.... Its trans day of visibility, your favorite passing fad of the kids who will move on to Deely Boppers once TikToc is banned or something like that. 
We're here everyday and certainly not going away.

Hoping you had a lovely festive time (and lovely festive bakes). I've moved 2022.doc to the Recycle Bin of history and I'm looking at clean page, so here's to the new.

Eve Eve

Christmas eve eve, I've already mentally checked out though the body is still hovering. Elsewhere legislators are preparing laws against the menace of drag queens reading out books and that sort of thing in the latest front in the war on LGBTQ+. In Scotland the Gender Recognition bill passed, to hear critics you'd think it was something radical but as I've said before its little more than an updating of laws and tidying of bureaucracy very unlikely to create a mass trans Gretna Green of 16 and 17 year olds seeking to update their id.

The shops are full of dresses for the party season, this year  there's a lot of sequins abound. My pick is the sequined wrap dress in black.

Is it safe to have another referendum? What is the best flavour of Monster Munch? My niece contends its beef whereas the correct answer is pickled onion. Cast you our vote below. If you dont vote you cant complain. No other flavours are allowed.

Monday reluctantly woke up partly because it's cold outside and partly because I couldn't lift off the extra blankets I put on top of my duvet off me. 

Snack review. Crunchy Wotsits, escentialy Cheetos rebranded and disappointing.
