Arisia 2020

Over the weekend, I visited the Westin Boston Waterfront hotel in Boston and attended the fan run science fiction convention called "Arisia". It was fantastic. I did sight countless kilted gentlemen (both traditional and modern styles), any number of cosplayers, and counted at least a half dozen men...

Re: Féminine outfit but not skirt

My thoughts on leggings: They are specifically meant to display the outline of the legs, hips, waist, glutes and "that region" without violating the rules of decency. Mechanically, I see them as a derivative of the long-time classic known to the ballet scene as tights, which have been considered dec...

Re: What did you wear for Thanksgiving ?

For mine, I went with a blakc waffle knit henley style shirt (xl/tall makes a good tunic length for me, reaching the tops of my thighs), light gray leggings, and black overknee boots in stretchy sueded fabric.

Re: High voltage transmission lines

It was a neat talk on the high voltage transmission lines. It did remind me of an interactive map I recently discovered, at least for the US from the US Energy Information administration at https://www.eia.gov/state/maps.php It's a google mashup that shows pretty much every power plant transmission ...

Six Months to the day!

Today, received the official letter offering me full time regular employment at Harvard Biosciences, the company I've been doing "contract work" at for the past three months. I want to thank everyone for the moral support, especially the likes of Carl. It's just about time for me to buy you that tal...

It feels like I'm on final approach, passing the outer marker, runway straight ahead, gear down and in the green. Friday, I talked with the immediate boss regarding what's going on and got reminded the extent of how far behind stuff is. He did voice appreciation regarding the meticulous nature that ...

I don't see codpieces making a comeback. Especially as a skirt embellishment.

Re: The Job Hunt begins...

It's all but official. With any luck,I should be back on the earning column on Monday. I've been offered a "contract" position with a medical research tools place roughly 5 minutes from my house. I'll be writing/fixing software that sit inside bio research lab tools, like syringe pumps, in order to ...

Re: "It wasn't an accident"

When I'm breaking the the gender stereotype, I do like to crush it. Coordinating things goes a long way to doing just that.

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

Mid-60s outside today so I pushed the envelope a bit when I went out.....no pants. No skirt, either, and not a dress in sight. :shock: Black leggings under a slightly too short tunic. Had to be on my toes when sitting, but doing the kiltie 'swoop and scoop' I was able to keep the rear smoothed out ...

Re: Is this just a southern mannerism?

But it would seem that in my region, the majority of people seem to hold somewhat "libertarian" ideals. Neither conservative nor liberal. " I may not agree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it " kind of stuff... That's classic liberalism. Not all modern liberals agre...

Re: Challenging the attitude.

Good on telling her off. Her making conversation with you invited your opinion, regardless of the tone. Keeping the opinions honest is always the right course. Deriding the trans girl behind her back shows that our civilized society, below the surface, still has a way to go. In my experience, just t...
