Who's your daddy?

These days I walk around staring at people's moustaches and hairlines and faces generally. I wonder: am I going to look like that guy over there? Or maybe that one who just walked by? Or maybe the one getting on the bus? It's a great guessing game, one that can't be resolved by looking at older pictures of your dad. There's too many other unexpressed chromosomes around for the body to choose from.

Moustache watching is pretty entertaining as a hobby though. There sure are a lot of choices, from scruffy and grizzly to bushy and pretentious. (Assuming always that one has the growth to realize one's particular choice.) A housemate is thinking about moustache wax for his, and so after a bit of surfing around on the web, we found that not only are there companies that sell moustache wax, in the 21st century, but that there is a World Championship for moustaches and beards. Here's a link to the U.S. Team. And the even more astounding, IMESHO, Handlebar Club of London. Enjoy!

T + 6 weeks

Today, the first day of the new year, was the first self-administered injection at home. Easy, without anxiety or problems. The needle is 1 1/2 inches long, but I'm apparently not needle-phobic.

Changes noted: as all other sites predict, voice change is beginning to kick in. It's been hard to tell because I've had a bad cold/cough/almost pneumonia for just about... 5 1/2 weeks. But over the past several days the voice shift has become clear.

Other changes: a little bit higher energy level than without T; body scent as with earlier shots; genitalia growth (!)

Too bad they can't schedule puberty for a lot later in life. I'm finding this time around much more fun! Even better than a second childhood...

A New Year: 2007

What are you doing this week, this day? As you welcome in the new year, you determine its course. I went someplace I'd never been, to hear live music, and then I came to another party to find I'd outlasted almost everyone there. Soon I'll head to another party, this one at the Alameda landfill, for a friend's birthday.

The trends for this year include, judging from the last couple of days and today, hearing lots of good music, playing some music, great parties, getting in touch with friends who are far away, and having a lot of good food around. For starters...

May your year be better than you desire!

Χρόνια πολλά και καλή χρονιά σε όλους/ες!
