Back on the Chain Gang

I visited friends in Leeds over the weekend. It was great. We did shopping, goth/alt clubbing, duelling practice (swords), and even snuck in some Live Action roleplaying (Vampire the Masquerade). I also got to meet cool, sexy, interesting people, and get startled by a 1:1 scale dinosaur model (some sort of 5ft tall 'raptor wannabe).

And then I had to go back to work. With a computer system so bad there are official 'work-arounds', customers who only tell us stuff when we threaten legal action, and a management team that cares only about performance figures, not what they mean, or how they are achieved.
I was planning to go back in a few months time. Maybe I'll consider going back a bit sooner.

So I'm barely a month out of training and we've had a re-shuffle at work. I'm boted off to another team who are understaffed. And guess what? Apart from our two consolidators, I'm the most experienced person on the team.
You were lisening when I said "barely a month out of training" right?
At least I'm still in the same wing of the building.

Tranny's night out

Birthdays of alternative-lifestyle friends are always a good time to tranny. Managed to sneak another outing last night, but toned it down a bit. Cute t-shirt, denim mini and opaque tights. My friend was impressed by my patent stilettoes. "They are gorgeous," she said. And the reputation built with another friend who told me that every other time she'd seen me was in drag.

Girl's got a reputation to maintain, no?
