Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

they also have NOTORIOUSLY poor protection on their servers. do NOT keep a credit card on file there.

@  Telly : (18 February 2019 - 04:48 PM)

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

@  Paladin : (17 February 2019 - 11:57 AM)

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

@  MEDdMI : (16 February 2019 - 08:51 PM)

Nonsense. Everybody loves all my posts.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (16 February 2019 - 08:27 PM)

Uh oh. Here comes a flock of Wah-Wahs.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (16 February 2019 - 10:54 AM)

Oh, that makes more sense.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2019 - 07:31 AM)

Haven't given it to him yet. Not sure when I will, but soon. Wah Wah is what he calls any vehicle with a siren, and the little bugger just LOVES firetrucks. So I got him a rescue bot heatwave.

@  repowers : (16 February 2019 - 02:41 AM)

I hope he said "You've given me a wah-wah"

@  Dekafox : (16 February 2019 - 12:48 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (14 February 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Or you could come to canada, where bureaucracy is a publically funded art form! So garbage and used condoms trying to make a statement about something or other, not entirely sure what.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

We've turned it into an art form.

@  Nevermore : (14 February 2019 - 06:10 AM)

You think you know bureaucracy, but you've never been to Germany.

@  RichardT1977 : (13 February 2019 - 11:48 PM)

I think a better counterpart would be "society".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (13 February 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Sounds like the cobra effect.

@  Echowarrior : (13 February 2019 - 05:58 PM)

@  MEDdMI : (13 February 2019 - 08:33 AM)

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

I can definitely relate. I realized fairly quickly that whatever I want, it's not to be a man dressed as a woman. I got a cheap wig and only wore it a couple of times. It didn't fit super well and I probably could have fixed that by buying a better one, but what it did do was convince me that I wanted my hair to be longer for real. Similar with the gel bra inserts I got. I might wind up using those eventually to help look better (who the hell knows where I'm going to end up cup size and an issue trans women apparently face is that wider rib cages make your breasts look smaller), but again I'm not really interested in creating some kind of costume. I want to actually feel like a girl.

 

How I'm feeling already on the pills has really hammered that point home. If this is probably just the start of what it's going to feel like as I probably up the dosages later, I'm totally on board with this. This feeling is amazing. It's like I had some kind of cloud over my mind and I didn't realize it until this pulled it away. About the only reason I would stop taking them is to try the injection version.

 

Losing power sucks. I lost power at work yesterday and missed a bunch of hours because of it. Hope you get everything sorted out.

 

Oh, and about the choker, make sure to use a tape measure around your neck. Mine's big enough that most of the ones I find won't fit me.

Now I'm having a power outage. So now I'm out in shit weather, spending money I don't have for dinner (since I can't use my microwave), dtessed as a hugging man! This is not how I wanted to spend my night.
Maybe I can go get that choker, which I also can't afford but damn I need something to keep this night from being a total bust.


On a good note, you may have just had your “I’m not just a cross dresser” moment.

Heh! No offense to anyone here, but coming from an extremely conservative and protestant background, if true, I'm not sure how much of a good note that is.

I've been increasingly thinking about what it would be like to be a girl...sometimes what sex would be like...but not always. Like I think about what it would be like to walk into work and face everyone, or face the parents. But mostly just to be able to dress as I want, whether thats jeans and teeshirt, or a dress. To look in a mirror and not have that damn thing hanging between my legs...actual breasts. Public bathrooms still hold that eww factor and a "thank God I can pee standing up" factor. But when compared to being stuck with this...thing...!

At first they were just fleeting thoughts. But now the times where I'm glad to be a guy, and I do still have those moments, but they seem, I don't know. I don't want to do anything for one thing because of the people I'd have to come out to, let alone the cost of just HRT, let alone SRS...but, I have such a knack for letting my emotions get the better of me and what if I did do something I can't take back and then it's, oh shit, what have I done?

I will point out that HRT is not that expensive. It looks like we're talking about $20 each for estradiol and for spironolactone for 30 day supplies without insurance. My insurance covers it so I don't care much, but they're generic drugs: they're not expensive.

 

Also, they are not commitments. I could stop at this point and I doubt anyone could ever physically tell I was on them. I'm not going to because it feels awesome, but I could if it wasn't helping. There's a reason why the friend I'm out to IRL was encouraging me to try. The best test of whether or not HRT is right for you is to take it for a week and see how you feel. The risks are minimal and it might shine a lot of light on how you feel about the idea.

Well, thankfully tonight was less of a "I'm freaking out here" type night. I found a cute little choker at Hot Topic tonight. When I got home from grocery shopping, I decided on the dress instead of jeans and shirt. It helps me feel calmer sometimes. And I really like the choker.

I'm still feeling fake with the breast forms. But it's not as harsh as the other night. Thankfully I have another therapy appointment Monday. I think I could use one right about now.

Posted Today, 01:59 AM

So, my family has currently three birds. A cockatiel, a yellow-naped amazon, and a twenty-something year old african grey.

 

We had been told that the grey was male, but it's hard to tell with some birds. Biology is weird. Anyway, a couple of years ago the amazon got sick. The details of that aren't important, but we took the grey in to the vet too since they hadn't been in in years. They said that they were overall good, but asked if we had an ultraviolet lamp for any of our birds and recommended we get them. The ultraviolet helps with vitamin d which helps with calcium absorption which gets important to avoid arthritis as they get older. So we got lamps for all three.

 

Skip forward like three months. I wake up to my mom screaming because there's an egg in the bottom of the cage. It turns out she DID have a calcium problem and that's why she had never laid one before, so we didn't find out earlier. She also gained like 20 grams after getting the lamp, which is a lot for a ~500 gram bird. It's probably increased bone density, which is good.

 

The insane-sounding punchline is: a new lamp made us realize we had been misgendering a parrot.
