Happy Christmas to All

[My annual Christmas greeting, first posted in 2007.]

...and to all a Good Night!" Clement Clark Moore wrote. (And, yes, he did write "Happy Christmas," not "Merry....")

This is my chance to talk about how I feel about Christmas. I'm with Charles Dickens, who put these words into the mouth of Scrooge's nephew, Fred: "I have always thought of Christmas time, when it has come round -- apart from the veneration due to its sacred name and origin, if anything belonging to it can be apart from that -- as a good time: a kind, forgiving, charitable, pleasant time: the only time I know of, in the long calendar of the year, when men and women seem by one consent to open their shut-up hearts freely, and to think of people below them as if they really were fellow-passengers to the grave, and not another race of creatures bound on other journeys. And therefore, uncle, though it has never put a scrap of gold or silver in my pocket, I believe that it has done me good, and will do me good; and I say, God bless it!"

There is practically no version of A Christmas Carol that I cannot stand to watch at least once, although I have a favorite--the 1984 TV version starring George C. Scott, which I consider closest to both the spirit and the letter of Dickens' work. I will confess a soft spot for The Muppet Christmas Carol, in part because my kids love it so (despite their being college graduates now).

So I will close this post with the immortal words of Tiny Tim:

God bless us, everyone!

Who Wears the Pants?

A week ago in this space, I linked to Stana's discussion of pants vs. dresses and skirts. Today, I'm going to talk about my own history with feminine trousers.

When I first began cross-dressing in my 20s, the idea of wearing pants seemed silly. "That's what I wear all the time; girls wear skirts and dresses." And when I resumed dressing about 15 years ago, that was my first rhought as well--and then I realized that, in the modern era, there were a lot of differences between men's and women's pants. And when I began to see some female styles that seemed really attractive and girlish, I decided to give them a try.

I realized a few things--for me, with some exceptions, the most femme pants were loose and a little flowing and, for them to really seem feminine, they needed to be worn with visible high heels. Here are some examples:
There were two exceptions to the "loose and flowing" rule: jeans and leather. I was never happy with the fit of the jeans I got, but the leather pants could be quite femme and sexy:
The one thing I wish I could have found was a pair of attractive shorts.

Hypno-Session: Becoming Mistress's Twin

 Wednesday, I had my latest meeting with Mistress Lola, probably the last we will have until after the holidays. In it, Mistress Lola mentally conditioned me to look and act like her twin.

The trance-script is here.

Panting for Dresses

Stana talks about the shift from dresses to pants in feminine attire--and what it means to people like us:

I seldom see civilian women in dresses or skirts. At the mall last week, I saw one woman in a skirt – all the others were in pants. However, there were still racks of dresses for sale in Macy’s. Don’t know who’s buying them because nobody was wearing them. Maybe they should move those racks to the men’s department because it seems that “men” like us are more likely to wear dresses than cisgender women.

Despite what civilian women are wearing or not wearing, I still dress up when I go out. In addition to the dress, I am fully coiffured and wear heels, hosiery, handbag, jewelry, bra, girdle, full makeup, etc. – just like when Mom when she used to go out. (She taught her “daughter” well.)

People notice. But what’s wrong with being noticed? Being noticed may result in compliments and what girl doesn’t like to receive unsolicited compliments on their appearance.

I admit I have a few bifurcated garments in milady’s wardrobe. But I seldom wear them. Maybe when I attend a very casual affair like a cook-out or a softball game. Otherwise, I’m in a dress.

After all, they don’t call it “cross-trousering,” do they?

I'll have some comments on my own experiences with women's pants in this space next week.

She Did It Again!

I have to start paying more attention to what's going on when I wake up from my naps. Bubbles has taken to using that half-asleep time to commendeering my body to ger own thoughts and ideas into this blog--like the post that preceded this one.

I only came across just now, as I was checking on the stats for the blog. Still, it's a very sexy image, I must say.

Bubbles Strikes Again

Like, hi, everybody! Since Dani won't get a chance to have fun with Mistress Lola until next week, I decided to take over and show her what she might be missing.

Ready, Dani? Have a treat, Sissy!
