My life as a heterosexual crossdresser.

Sunday and some Susan time including trip to nail salon

It is Sunday and once again I have some free time in the afternoon and evening and that means Susan time. I still need to write my blog from Wednesday and now Saturday so I am behind, sorry to those who follow me I will try to get them out quicker. Well before I get to far Just a quick note, there is still time to sign up to go on our Mexican Cruise, October 13 to 20 2018. We have 28 signed up right now let’s see if we can get 30. . For more information check out our web page or contact me.

I got home a little later so it was almost 3 when I started getting ready which is something I totally enjoy. It really is relaxing to take the time and do my makeup and transform into Susan. It was 3:45 when I was ready including my corset, and as I was putting on my bracelet and ring I was looking at my finger nails which really do look wonderful. They are a little long and do show some grow out so if you look at them there is no denying I have acrylic nails. As I looked at them I was thinking about the week ahead, my only Susan time will be Wednesday for dinner and I will be rushing to make that and then again Saturday and also will be a rush to get there by 7. I do have Monday morning but that is a holiday and I am sure the nail salon will be open so it is either today or more then a week more and it has already been 2 ½ weeks. Usually I call Dream Nails before I get ready but this was a last-minute decision so I called and Anna said she could get me in at 4:45 so now I had that dilemma, what to do for 45 minutes.

I decided although it was short I would go to the Starbucks by my house as it is right across the street from the nails salon and work on my blog for Wednesday night till my appointment. I got there right at 4 and they were busy but mostly takeout so there were a couple tables open. I got my drink and started on my blog. I had only been here a few minutes and someone I know, kind of work with walked in and I saw him in line to get a drink. I just kept my head down and kept working on my blog as he got his drink and left. Now about 15 minutes later another lady I know, works where my parents are living came in and once again I just kept my head down and kept working. I little m ore nervous about her because as far as I know my parents have no idea about this part of my life. She also got her drink and left. Wow only here for 45 minutes and saw two people I know. I finished my blog and posted it at 4:40 so had just enough time to get to my nail appointment.

I got to Dream nails and Anna was still finishing a lady so I had to wait about 5 minutes. Now there were 5 other women in here, 2 getting their finger nails done, 2 getting pedicures and one waiting on her friend. Anna started on my nails and we talked a little, Anna pretty much works 7 days a week, she is the owner although I do think a couple days she may either come in a little later or leave a little early. I encouraged her to take some time off for herself and this goes for everyone. Take some time for yourself, life is to short to just work all the time. You will be so much happier and more relaxed. Anna did a great job on my nails as always and it was so relaxing. Now I did notice the two women getting pedicures looking over at me every once in a while, but what else do you have to do at the nail salon as I kind of watch other people also to see what they are getting done. Well as I was watching them the one lady who was very petite I did notice her shoulder and arm muscles were really defined and she did have kind of a raspy voice and I don’t know why but I wondered just wondered if she had transitioned at some point. I tell people this all the time that even if you are really passible there are subtle things that by themselves won’t give you away but as they ad up well may give you away. I do not know about her and I would never say anything but being transgender myself there was enough to at least put the thought in my head. It was just before 6 when Anna finished my nails and they looked wonderful as always and shorter.

Now what to do as my usual Sunday is Starbucks till 6:30, go get gas and then onto Wendy’s before going home but the Starbucks by my house will close in 30 minutes and as I have tomorrow off I can stay out later. I decided to go to Cascade station by the airport as I wanted to run into Target and also the Starbuck’s there is open till 9. I got to Target and ran in as I needed to pick a few things up which didn’t take long and then it was off to Starbucks’s. I got there about 6:45 and parked right out front and went in. They were also busy but there was one table right in front of the window so I put my computer on it and went and stood in line to get my drink.

Soon I was happily sitting at my table with my drink and on my computer working on my blog for Saturday night. Now for years I would always write my blog the very next day which I really try to do but there is something special about writing Susan’s blog as Susan at Starbuck’s. now as I sat there a young girl came in who was very tall, guessing 6’4″ and she also had low wedge heels on about 2″. Now she was very skinny and a really pretty face but I saw her glance at me on her way to order. Now I am not in any way saying she is not a female but after she ordered she went and sat at the very opposite side of Starbucks from me even though where she would pick up her drink was right by me and that was the door she used and there were also places to sit closer. I also noticed her look at me several times. Now I am more likely to believe that she was worried people might think she was transgender if they saw her by me then her actually being transgender but again it did make me think. I have actually noticed a lot more really tall females lately as I do work with one who is 6’5″ but there are now 3 more females I work with and 1 is the same height as me 6′ and one is a couple inches taller and the third is at least 5″ taller than me and none of them you would mistake as not being female. Now tall women are still a was smaller percentage but there is hope for taller t-girls.

I got all my work done and it was about 8:45 so I left Starbucks and even though it was late I decided to stop at Wendy’s for something to eat. Now being this late they were not that busy. I ordered my food and the lady who waited on me told me she loved my nails. I thanked her and told her I had just got them done. She told me she wished she could have nails like mine and I told her all it took was to make a little time to get them done. She smiled and said she made time for the gym and didn’t have time for her nails. I smiled back and told her I made time for my nails and not the gym. Which got me thinking I really need to get back to my exercising. I use to stop at the gym almost every day, and then I bought an elliptical for my home and now I hardly use it. I am going to have to try and change that as I really do want to lose some weight for our cruise this fall.

I ate my dinner and then headed for home. It was almost 10 when I got home. It was a good night out. I sat down on the couch to watch a little TV before changing back from Susan to go to bed and fell asleep on the couch. It was a little after midnight when I woke up and went up to bed. I had worn my corset for over 8 hours. Now I have people who ask how I can ware a corset and really it is easy. I got mine at Orchards corset and I e-mailed them my measurements and they recommended the size I needed and they were right on. It really fits well and is very comfortable. The only two things it is hard to get in and out of the car as I have a smaller car and also not really comfortable sitting in y car seat. I also can’t bend over to pick something up or put shoes on or off without getting out of breath. Other then that it is really comfortable and it makes me sit up straight and keeps my shoulder back so I have really good posture and of course a really nice shape. The good way out ways the bending issue.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what’s new in Susan’s life on my most recent blog.

Saturday at the Escape on Memorial Day Weekend

It is Saturday of Memorial Day weekend so I am not sure how many girls will be out but before I get into my blog I want to recognize the sacrifice so many American men and woman have made for our freedom and our way of life. We have and live in the greats country in the world and we owe it all to our brave service men and woman who dedicated their lives to protect us and some gave up everything for us. I want to thank you all and let you know how much we appreciate what you gave and let you know you are not forgotten.

Now I started getting ready early for two reasons, first I wanted to take my time and enjoy every moment of becoming Susan and second, I wanted to get there early so I could write my blog from Wednesday as I am once again behind in my blogging. Seems I just can’t find the time the next day to update things. Now it was about 4:45 when I was all done and ready to dress but I decided I would ware my corset tonight which also means picking out the right dress. I got the corset on and it really does give me a nice shape as I have hips and a waist which is several inches narrower, I will have to measure it sometime as I am curious. I got the corset on and put the dress I chose on and it just didn’t look right so off it came and back to the closet. It was the third dress I tried that I went with, a black and white one that goes down to mid-calf but also has a slit on the left that goes up to mid-thigh oh and also tight and clingy so the curves show. Being a girl is so much fun.

I got to the Escape just before 5:30 and went in. They were not that busy so I sat down and got my computer out and ordered dinner. I looked around and Kearren was also there early so she came over and joined me. It has been a while since I have seen her out, at least before Diva Las Vegas which was 6 weeks ago, wow time is flying. Well I put my computer away as it is always more fun to talk with someone then play on my computer, guess I will do my blog Sunday. It is sad as she will be moving too Idaho in a few weeks and I will miss her. We talked a while about why we do this and we both agreed there really is no right answer other then we enjoy it and it relaxes us. I guess for me Susan is part of who I am and when I can be her feel complete and that is a real enjoyable and relaxing feeling compared to hiding her away.

We got on the topic of Facebook and friends and peoples profiles. I will share my thoughts and remember these are just my thoughts for me. I do get a lot of friends request and I am selective of who I accept. Now it is not because I don’t want to be friends with people I just try to limit it to people I feel I will meet at some point or we have a lot of friends in common. I am not interested in having just numbers. Again, this is me, I see people with 5,000 friends and I have to ask myself how can you keep up with that many, at 100 a day it would take you 50 days to look at each of them. We also talked about profiles with no picture or information, again I don’t friend blank profiles although I have made the rare exception as sometimes people have valid reasons. I do have a few friends that I have met or have exchanged pictures with that just can’t put public info out but I do want to make sure people are real. Any way Kearren is trying to get a good picture of herself to post so I gave her my tips and again this is what works for me. I find I get my best pictures when the camera is above me and at a slight angle. So, I am going to post pictures taken different ways to show the difference. It is amazing the difference that different angles make.

Well Kate was the next to show up so the 3 of us sat and talked for a while. Then Kate and Kearren went to play pool so I thought about getting my computer out but then Bobbie showed up followed by Jan & Lynn. Now a funny story as a group of women showed up about 8 and they were all waring Tutu’s and looked so cute. Well I had to tell them that and soon I was talking to a couple of them. It turns out one of their friends had been working on the East coast the last 2 months and was back in town for the weekend and had asked 1 of them to pick her up at the airport. Well this friend had this great idea and got several of her friends to show up at the airport in tutu’s and hold up signs as they waited for her to get off the plane, signs like welcome back from rehab, and so on. It was so funny. Any way I just thought I would share this so remember this the next time you ask a friend to pick you up at the airport or if you are going to pick someone up.
kellybea also showed up tonight with her wife, she is one of our newer members and has gone out a couple times in Salem but she drove up here tonight. It was really nice to meet her and her and her wife seem really nice. I got to talk with them a little which was nice and I hope they cam get out more with our group. I really do like when I meat new people. It was about 9:30 and Lauri showed up so we had a good size group tonight, 10 in all.

It was also getting crowded now as people were coming in for karaoke and that is always fun although you really can’t talk anymore as it gets to loud. Now a lot of the songs sung tonight I have never herd or at least don’t remember so when the ones I know were sung I would sing a long quietly of course. Now I did get several compliments on my dress as it really did look good. I wish I had gotten a picture of me standing so I would be able to show off the dress but I didn’t think of that. Any way of course I would thank them and got into conversations with them also which really makes a fun night. Alice would have been so proud of me as I probably talked with at least 6 women there I didn’t know and had never met so much different from 10/15 years ago when I would go out and just sit and keep to myself and not make eye contact with people. It really is fun to interact with people.

This brings me back to another thing Kearren and I talked about, passing in public which is a question I get asked a lot. Both do I pass and for those who ask me this, thanks for the compliment, and also, I will get asked by others if they pass as they don’t want to go out unless they

pass. No, I do not pass in the way people ask or think. Yes, there are times, right lighting, distance, alcohol intake and so on when I do but I do not even come close to passing 100% and that is okay. For me passing means something totally different. If I can go out and not be bothered, not be made fun of, be treated as a female then I have passed. Passing to me is being accepted for who I am. Tonight here I passed 100% as always. I am always accepted here and treated as any other woman her and that is a great feeling. Now what will help you is being confident and by this, I mean acting like this is the most natural thing for you, like you are not doing anything wrong, the other big thing is smile and be polite, this goes a long way. Again, this is just my thoughts and views and that and $5 will get you a drink at Starbucks. Now the 3 pictures above were all taken right in a row with me sitting in the same position. The only thing that changes was the height and angle of my phone and I did try to keep the same facial expression.

It was a good night out and I ended up staying out later then I planned as it was almost 11:30 when I paid my bill and called it a night and I think I was actually the first to leave. Wow the girls stayed out late tonight. Now I did go back through some old pictures and found one of me in the dress I wore tonight so this will give you an idea of how I looked but tonight I had curves. It really was a wonderful night. I do plan on going to Starbucks on Sunday and as I have Monday off I will be out in the morning and early afternoon. Not sure what I will do, maybe get together with some friends for shopping or lunch. I really do lov e this part of my life.

Thanks for reading and be sure and see what’s new with Susan on my most recent blog.
