I thought after yet another LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG week it might be fun to relax and just tell fun things.

 

My FRIDAY FUN FACT - I learned that if you put your finger in your ear and move the finger up and down you will hear the sound the old Pac-Man machines made. I tried it and it made me smile. Hope it does especially for those old enough to remember Pac-Man.

@Bri2020 and @Jandi  I don't want to laugh at you - we've ALL experienced MUCH TOO MUCH of that. I want to share a little joy with you and learn some fun things as well.

SO a few fun facts for today:

 

 The original name for the search engine Google was Backrub. It was renamed Google after the googol, which is the number one followed by 100 zeros.

 

Wombats are the only animal whose poop is cube-shaped. This is due to how its intestines form the feces. The animals then stack the cubes to mark their territory. 

 

The oldest-known living land animal is a tortoise named Jonathan, who is 187 years old. He was born in 1832 and has lived on the island of St. Helena in the Atlantic Ocean since 1882. 

 

Hope your day goes wonderfully.

This sounds rather unpleasant.

 A woodpecker’s tongue actually wraps all the way around its brain, protecting it from damage when it’s hammering into a tree.

 

While listening to music, your heart can sync to the rhythm.

 

Mary, of “Mary Had A Little Lamb” fame, was a real person and the song is based on a true story.

 

The blob of toothpaste that sits on your toothbrush has a name.It's called a "nurdle."

 

Here's a funny fact for you: A dairy cow will produce up to 3 percent more milk when listening to music. But they don't like country music, especially Willie Nelson. They need something with a good beat.

Maybe something like Enter Sandman by Metallica?   Or more like Here comes the Sun by The Beatles? ?

I expect they all go mad eventually.

      While I haven't been out of school nearly that long. This spring is 18 years. I come from a town of 1000 people. My class only had like 23 people in it. We are also the last class from the school to graduate as they joined with another school down the road.    Here is where It gets weird. My class was the only one in 70 or so years of them being around. That had the first gay person, and since I've come out of the closet last year. The only trans person.

      I was on Mylan for my last prescription fill. Before that was Alora.  The Mylan was nice and tiny compared to what I have now.   Kymmie

      Jeanette, since you are speaking about her in relation to your own experience, it's fine to mention her by name.  @Charlize is, as usual, absolutely correct.   Carolyn Marie

      Agreed. The USA, the UK, and the EU need this, too.

      Heh! You have that right. I am continually amazed at the instant understanding and patience of people when I point at my throat and shake my head while motioning "I can't speak".   Give me a couple of hours, I'll write up a comprehensive review of my experience at Haben's clinic. I should do this all in MS Word and save them. My previous was lost in the server crash.

      I hope you are doing well, and guess you’ll become a quick note writing expert in the coming weeks, as you resist taking while you heal.

      Thank you for sharing. I couldn't stop after all; I just couldn't hold out very long for similar reasons to those that you shared. So I decided to just be open with my wife and tell her that I have to proceed.   All of this is bewildering to me, since I have been able to plan and control so much of my life up until my dysphoria surfaced. If this were a sporting match, the score is now Dysphoria 10 vs. Nimue 0.   I am mostly content to be losing this battle. However, I am not always so resolute and struggle with moments of panic an doubt, yet these moments do pass and I feel more sure each time.

      I just got confirmation of being enrolled in Sephora's online "Bold Beauty for the Transgender Community"! I don't have many people I can share this with who might understand how exciting this is for me, so I am celebrating with you! I hope you don't mind.   Happy dance!   Nimue

      I couldn't stop if I tried.  My dysphoria had gotten to the point that just the thought of not being able to live as a woman mad me almost suicidal. I hate every "male" aspect of my being so I'm fast tracking full medical transition. My world supports me but it has also cost me my marriage. We tried counseling. She absolutely wants me to transition but couldn't "transition" into a lesbian and the loss of a male partner left a large hole in her emotionally. We realized we both deserve someone whom we are attracted to and is attracted to us.  Still great friends but that was the price of being my authentic self. I'm lucky that she never wanted me to compromise, doing so probably would have killed me slowly. Everyone has their own journey and their own thresholds for what they are willing to do, or need to do in order to survive and live fully.   My advice is simple, if these compromises are tolerable for you and you are mentally OK with them the great.  On the flip side, if they are just an attempt to appease your spouse but they are emotionally painful for you then you need to reevaluate why you are compromising.  I've seen a lot of people compromise their transitional goals out of fear they will lose someone but even then, they don't "fix" the relationship. It just stagnates and resentments occur on both sides. Couples therapy helps you both see where things truly stand and why you are deciding to slow down or why you are being asked to slow down.   I HATE the fact that I've lost my wife, we had an amazing mariage. But we also realised, it wasn't going to survive without resentments. It was out of respect for each other we split. (also why we still love each other and are friends) My life will be harder and sadder without her, but I will also be able to flourish at some point as my authentic self, free to be me without the fear of hurting someone or myself.

      I heard this interview this evening on my local public radio station. Warning; this is a very emotional interview in which everyone cries. They are making a tv series on this ministers life. https://www.cpr.org/show-episode/nov-26-2021-transgender-pastor-shares-revelations-in-as-a-woman/
