No funny looks or stares and conversations with the phlebotomist was cordial and normal. As expected.
Was this perhaps because you had made access to the relevant phleb easier by arriving in a skirt? On second thoughts, perhaps not if you were wearing tights ;-)

Re: Wildfires in the US

Another factor is that electric motors gave a pretty rough ride until modern power converters with silicon controlled rectifiers and triacs came along. Traction control consisted of switching motor windings in and out of circuit, with a big jolt every time you did it. Older readers may remember trai...

Re: Wildfires in the US

A letter in The Times today signed by three scientists (two of whom are Oxford professors) describes a low- temperature catalytic stripping process by which natural gas and other fossil fuels can be converted into high-purity hydrogen and solid carbon, with no gaseous carbon dioxide. They say that t...

Re: Scottish Hate Crime law

It would be surprising if an attempt to outlaw skirted men were to succeed in the land of the kilt. But the foamingly intemperate language used by this group and the glib assumptions surely eliminate it from serious consideration. What's that about lingerie, for example? Since lingerie isn't normall...

Re: Wildfires in the US

OK, sorry for the thread drift disconnects -- I'll check out Purple Rain -- nice to think another good things came from the that delightful valley. Purple Rain's website is still up at purplerainskirts.com , though there's no reference to the present emergency. I hope that isn't a bad sign. I've be...

I have had this done on two occasions for Sleep Anapia. (SP)
Forgive me, but I think that would be sleep apnoea or apnea. Anapia is an island in Lake Titicaca, Peru ;-)

Wildfires in the US

On the BBC TV news last night we saw scenes of people fleeing the town of Medford, Oregon, which was in flames. I hope that Mandy, of Purple Rain Adventure Skirts, has managed to stay safe.

Re: Seen on facebook. Looks like a skirt to me

(The pics on the sites from Tim and Geron look a dash different...truly the same, or...?) In the case of my second link, the cut of the knee-length Incerun product is (to my eye) indistinguishable from the Hiatus skirt. However, Incerun's has a plastic zip fastener in place of Hiatus's hidden butto...

Re: Seen on facebook. Looks like a skirt to me

Looks like a copy of this design from France:

Other designs from Hiatus are receiving similar treatment in the Far East, such as this example:

Re: First outing in a while

I can't even remember what I used last time, Irfanview maybe, or is that just a viewer? Ah, Cyberlink photodirector was my tool last time, part of the suite I use for faffing about with videos. No, Irfanview is a very capable freeware image processing application, and it's what I use on my Windows ...

Re: First outing in a while

Something to be aware of when posting photos is that digital images may include metadata identifying (via GPS, Galileo etc.) the exact location at which each picture was taken. If you don't want to disclose this, check the menus of your image editor to see whether it will let you delete or doctor th...

Re: Dresses marketed to both men and women

I have two Skirtcraft skirts, one of each type, and I'd say it was definitely worth the expense of having them sent to England. But earlier this year I ordered an Adventure Skirt and a kilt from https://www.purplerainskirts.com/ and, to my astonishment, they escaped not only VAT but the Royal Mail's...

Re: hello from Carcassonne France

Davidkilt, I wonder whether you know that an association exists for skirted men in France: https://asso.i-hej.com/

So it's not a totally unknown phenomenon. I've myself worn skirts in the Midi....

Please educate me --- what is a "twit two"?
Sounds as if it might be what in the UK is called a wolf-whistle.

Re: Out and About -- In the World at Large

It depends on if you consider being looked over by a burly truck driver an advantage! A long walk that my wife and I like to do fairly frequently takes us past a transport café on one of the main trunk roads out of London, and we like to drop in for a take-away coffee. Today, we arrived a little ea...
