I added a third story -- Something very different from me.

Author: 

I just posted my third story for the contest. This one is very different from me. Inspired by Dorothy's first story, it is highly autobiographical of my own process for deciding to come out.

It is somewhat fictionalized, and the time frames have been changed, but it is ultimately my story.

I needed to write it, and I hope others will find some value in it.

How I Decided it was Time to Come Out to the World

Angered by the continuing news of legislative attacks on the transgender community, Eric needs to make an important decision about coming out to his family, and the world.

Wrabel - The Village, new MTF version

Author: 

I always loved Wrabel’s The Village. Even though it was written from a FTM viewpoint, I could still identify with the pain, and the freedom when he finally goes ahead despite his families pushes.

Now Wrabel has recorded a MTF version, would love a new video, but that may be too much to ask.

Anyway here it is with some subtle changes for MTF transition.

Looking for a story

Author: 

I am trying to find a story I have not read in many years. I don’t remember where I found it.

It was about a husband and wife, who were sailing around the world. They stop on an island, do a good deed, meet an old woman, who offers them both a wish. They wish for each others happiness.

They continue on their way, and slowly swap genders.

Ring any bells?

Who Will Buy?

Who Will Buy
by Kristine Roland

This little song parody is about the feeling I had when I recently did a makeover photo shoot, and saw myself in the mirror for the first time, truly seeing me.

Who will buy this wonderful feeling?
Such an image I never have seen
Who will tie it up with a ribbon?
And put it in a box for me

Yesterday, thanks to a challenge that Dorothy Colleen put up, I was able to actually sit down and write. While it was a short 1000plus word story, it really felt good to do so.

Last weekend was the first days off I had taken since before Memorial Day, other then a day to take my son to Vermont to visit a potential college. He will be a senior in high school come September. So writing has been difficult both from a motivation and energy or time.

Conversation with my Sister

Conversation with my Sister
by Kristine Roland

"Look, you. These," as she points to her chest, "are not a political statement, or an economic statement or even just a sexual statement, the fantasies of men notwithstanding. What they are is a pain, quite literally. So explain to me why you would want a pair of your own?"

I got a very nice card from my son today, in addition to the nice ecard he picked out,

his personal note to me was:

Happy Father's Day to the best of the best! I hope Kristy has a wonderul day too.

Love, ...

According to my wife, FanFicWriter, he wrote it himself (with her assistance on spelling and grammer lol)

A very nice treat for today.

Here is wishing to all of you out there that are Father's, a very happy Father's Day to you as well.

Question about flying to Canada from US, and back

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

Hey all,

I'm flying from NJ to Toronto, ON tomorrow to meet some customers at their site. I've never flown into Canada, and never been without my wife before. Should I be nervous about packing Kristy's clothes? Should I just basically choose to be resigned to travel without any of my things for the evenings? Who has had experience with Customs? I've only been a few times, twice while on a cruise, and once we crossed at Niagara Falls. So this is a new experience for me.

Thanks for any advice...

Finally found an effective tape for burst breast forms.

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

I have tried many things over the years to get a little extra life for a breast form once I have inevitably gotten a cut in the protective film. As I do sleep in the forms this will happen.

Usually I get close to two years before it does though.

My latest ones only went about a year.

It's been 6 years since I first joined the BCTS Family

Author: 

It was 6 years ago yesterday that I first joined the Big Closet community, so I think it's sensible to look back a bit.

I have not always been the most active of people, in fact after posting my first story, I was quiet for a long time.

Several years ago, I got back into and was quite active, and then over the past year or so, work requirements have really taken their toll on my free time, and so most of my free time is spent with my family. But I'm still on here at least a little bit every day, and keeping an eye on stories that post, and the blogs to keep my toes in.

Looking for a story

Author: 

I was thinking tonight of a short story I read once, about a post op young woman, dressing as masculine as she can, wearing a cap to sit and watch a game with her Dad, to give him one last gift from his "son."

It was a sentimental story, but I can't for the life of me remember the title, and I would like to read it again.

Hope someone can point me to it.

Hugs,

It would have been eeire

Seeing the entry in the list this morning for Bike 1491, it occurred to me how eeire that it would have been, if the 1492 entry had fallen on Monday, which is the day we celebrate Columbus day here in the states.

So close...

Now back to your regularly scheduled programming..

Acceptance

Author: 

Max, FanficWriter (my wife) and I were spending a few days in Washington, DC this week.

This morning, we were packing up to come home. I had decided, that I did not need to pack my bra and breast forms until we were all ready to go.

So everything was packed, we had been making the final rounds, checking all the drawers etc...

I asked my wife if there was anything else, and then hugged her. It was as I began to hug her, she suddenly noticed my breasts... and started to say, "You.."

I said, "Just wanted to wait as long as I could on that... But, you just noticed?"

Could use some advice

If you have read my prior blogs on my home life, you know that I am blessed with a wife and son that accept me for who I am.

My wife has mentioned a couple of times recently that the one thing that bothers her is that she is isolated, when it comes to the topic of my being TG.

My wife is not a very social person to begin with. She simply doesn't enjoy social settings, dreads any such gathering, even though she usually has a good time in the end. As a result, she doesn't have any close friends, at least not in real life.

Life Updates

Author: 

I haven't been around much of late. I do continue to check in to see what is being posted, and occassionaly comment when I can, but work has had me traveling and insanely busy this year.

There have been some good changes though.

My wife and I have both been on diets since January. I'm down 40 pounds, and she is down over 30 pounds. It's interesting as we are both doing totaly seperate diets, she is on Nutra-System, and I'm doing a low-carb approach. But they are working well.

Les Miserables - 25th anniversary tour

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

I know this has nothing to do with tg topics, but I wanted to share this any way.

Last Wed night, my parents, my wife, my son and I went to see the new production of Les Miserables, it is currently at the Papermill Playhouse in Millburn, NJ thru this next week, and then continuing on tour thru the US. I believe the next stop is in Philadelphia.

My son had come to enjoy the music from the 10th anniversary concert, but had never had the opportunity to see the show, he was enthralled, it was great to share this with him.

Can you recommend a good place for breast forms?

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

Well, I went to put on my forms last night, and one of them has decided it was time to develop a tear in the form. I've temporarily used a tip from the The Breast Form FAQ 4.0 at http://www.blooberry.com/bformfaq/index.html using the adhesive parts of band-aids, but I'm quite sure that is a temporary fix.

Unfortunately when I went to the site I have bought them many times before "www.4transgenders.com" and they are no longer there. It comes up to a search site that is definitely not what I was looking for.

Can anyone recommend a reputable site I can use to replace them?

Hugs,

Who can see all the references.

Included in that are a number of references to things - Can you catch them all? Hey Bobbie, "Quotes!"

My almost 15yo son found my breast forms.... or did he?

Taxonomy upgrade extras: 

Author: 

Last Wednesday was my 45th birthday.

At 12:30 in the morning, after saying goodbye in the chat room, I went into my closet to get my breast forms, and I grabbed a form that was wrapped in plastic wrap. I looked at it and said, "what?" and the light bulb caption above my head turned on as I realized these were my old forms, they had developed a leak and I had wrapped them in plastic whilst waiting for the replacements, and had not thrown them out.
