Missing Our National Holiday

I've had many enjoyable Halloweens.  For someone who loves to dress, but isn't remotely passable, it's a wonderful opportunity to be out in public.  I've always been 99% closeted so to be out and about as Linda is just so liberating. 

One of my favorite Halloweens was several years ago.  I was wearing a nice conservative dress and black pumps, my favorite long curly wig and full makeup.  I drove around to several stores, buying a few things here and there, mostly so I could be out among people as Linda.  I know, not very exciting, but still so nice.

My last stop was a bagel shop (yes, I am one wild person).  There were two young girls working behind the counter.  It was after 6 and I was the only customer.  I checked out the selection, trying to decide what to buy.  When I said, in my regular voice, "I'm ready" the girl closest to me looked at me in shock.

"I thought you were really a lady," she said.  "You look really good."

Now, I'm sure she was mostly being kind.  She had also probably worked a really long day.  After you've waited on many customers, you probably don't look all that carefully when one more typical customer comes in.  In any case, I was thrilled.

She called her co-worker over and told her about me.  They were so, so nice.  They told me I looked very nice and admired my dress and heels.  The first girl said, "You even have boobies" and giggled.

We chatted for a few minutes.  It was wonderful.

I know, I know.  Not an adventure for most people.  Not even close.  But it made me feel great.

I wished I didn't need to get home and change.  I have many commitments (maybe I'll talk about those some day) and had to get back to them.  But for a few hours, it was great to be out as Linda, even if it was just to buy milk and bagels.

Shoes I love

OK, one of the best ways to get updates almost every day about amazing shoes is to subscribe to The Shoe Goddess

It's so nice to get an e-mail with 4 or 5 gorgeous shoes and fun commentary.

Having said that, here are some shoes I love (and would love to own - though I think I'd need to hit the lottery to justify spending this much money on shoes, no matter how cute):

 Stuart Weitzman Platswoon

Christian Louboutin Prive

Calvin Klein Olive (cute and under $100)

Jimmy Choo Aimee

There are lots  more but I think blogger will only let me upload a certain number (or maybe I need to make the pictures smaller).  Any help with ideas?

Fun Shoe Web Sites

I love shoes!  I'm very jealous of girls who get to buy and wear gorgeous shoes or even those who are comfortable shoe shopping.  I'd love to go shoe shopping with a girl friend at a high end shoe stores.  Or even low end stores.  Just trying on and buying cute shoes sounds like heaven.

Here are a few fun shoe web sites:

I bet no one has ever started their first blog entry with Hello before.

Well, that's me.  Always the rebel.

Actually, I'm about as far from a rebel as I could be.  I've always been the good boy, followed the rules.

However, there's a secret almost no one knows about.  Since I was a little boy, I've been fascinated by women's clothes.  I started wearing my mother's high heels when I was 6 years old.  I didn't know why (still don't) but wearing them just gave me a wonderful feeling.

Of course, I knew it was wrong and tried to quit many, many (many!) times.

It took a long time to get over the guilt.  I'm mostly over it but my dressing is still a secret from almost everyone.

We'll see what happens with this blog.  I mostly set it up so I can follow other girls like myself.  However, I love to write and to talk about myself, so I wouldn't be surprised if I submit the occasional post.
