I started at the GW voice clinic today... I live out on the burbs, so the best way to get downtown for me, is via Metro.  It's helpful to come to the clinic in role, and I had the day off and time to get ready, so I went as me.  I thought it would be a big deal... Faline's first time on the Metro.  But, it wasn't.  I need to stop being surprised by this!  Took the Metro down there, walked the 4 blocks to GW, without incident, without looks, etc.  I don't know if it is that I look good, or people just don't care, or what... I guess a little of both.  At any rate, I didn't sense that I got read.

The girls at the clinic were very nice... they are used to TG people coming in, they're happy to help.  Finished up the appointment, back on the Metro to my car, and I didn't feel like going home yet.  So I went to the mall... tried a few things at Macy's and Penneys, but didn't buy anything.  Which is good... I need to learn more about what looks good on me before I start buying tons of crap.  :)

Then I got my eyebrows threaded... very cool.  First time I've tried that.  The woman at the spa suggested threading instead of waxing.  I'd heard about it but never tried it.  So I thought, ok, let's try it.  It hurt a little bit, but not much, certainly no more than waxing, and afterwards you don't have the redness around your brows that screams to everyone, "I JUST GOT MY EYEBROWS WAXED!!"  Then I stopped at the grocery store to get a couple things for the kids, and now it is laundry time.  Yay!  Anyway, today was a good day.


awww gratz girl on some milestones! hehe. I know getting your eyebrows done is a big deal....well it was for me anyway. =) I need to get mine redone again soon.

Well it was a big deal in that it was my first time getting them done as me. I've have them waxed many times as a guy... but the problem with that, is that they never "girled them up" quite the way I wanted.

what is threading?

threading is an alternative to waxing... I don't know quite how they do it, but they take two threads and use the threads to pull the hairs out. Leaves a nicer line than waxing and doesn't rip off a layer of skin.
