i haven't posted here in forever. and i feel like it's silly and weird to post this, since it sounds like you will care about me more than i do for you. or something. (still overthinking, of course.)

but, my therapist and i have agreed that i will get a letter from her to start testosterone in june.

which is news.


miss you.

sorry i disappeared.

i should be saying so many things. but i don't know how. i'm confused and upset, but that's never all that new. it's easy when i'm talking about myself, but when it's about other places, far far away, even when i know one of the people involved and just want to do the exact right thing to heal that person's heart... i don't know what to say.

but, the wonderful sophy has this compiled list of all sorts of things about katrina and what can be done and what people have said, and yeah... i was wishing i had the resources to make a list like this, but it's already in existence, here. there are surrounding entries with important stuff in them too. (well, of course, everything she says is important, but this... is... specific?)

do you want to hear something dorkysentimentalweird? i can't watch "family feud." not for any snobby bad showish reasons, but because i always think of ray combs and how he killed himself.

Subject: This time, it's for real: Save NPR and PBS


You know that email petition that keeps circulating about how Congress is slashing funding for NPR and PBS? Well, now it's actually true. (Really. Check at the bottom if you don't believe me.)

Sign the petition telling Congress to save NPR and PBS:

The House of Representatives is about to vote on whether to slash funding for NPR and PBS, starting with "Sesame Street," "Reading Rainbow" and other commercial-free children's shows. If approved, this would be the most severe cut in the history of public broadcasting, threatening to pull the plug on Big Bird, Cookie Monster and Oscar the Grouch.

The cuts would eliminate more than $200 million for NPR, PBS and local stations immediately, with more cuts likely in the future. The loss could kill beloved children's shows like "Clifford the Big Red Dog," "Arthur," and "Postcards from Buster." Rural stations and those serving low-income communities might not survive. Other stations would have to increase corporate sponsorships.

The House will vote on the cuts as soon as Tuesday. Can you help us reach 1 million signatures calling on Congress to save NPR and PBS?

i'm watching "the mary tyler moore show" on dvd. it's an episode where she's in the hospital and i thought maybe i knew who her roommate was played by. i was absolutely wrong, but i recognized the name of who it actually was, and now i feel all weirdly awed and starstruck. i'm like, "oo!!! i'm watching ursula from the little mermaid in real life!"

i am a dork. i'm embarassed, but more embarassed about other things. i'm so sorry.

My name is kelly shortandqueer and I'm working on
gathering resources for the second edition of
Trans(in)formation, a zine that lists contact
information for other zines with
genderqueer/transgender content. There are many more
listings than the first edition, and I'm still looking
for more to include. I'm especially interested in
zines published outside of the United States. Please
forward this call for zines on to anyone who might be
interested and please send me the contact info for
zinesters who you think should be included.

For more information or for a copy of the first
edition, please contact me at: or
