First off, I must apologize to Kerri for misspelling her name all the way through yesterday's post.

Secondly, I received a long, well-written and just plain great email from Kerri. I wouldn't presume to post it here, but take my word that it explained a lot about why Jeff made the decision to become Kerri. And it reminded me what it was like to be in school and be picked on for being different. I forgot how easy it is to fall back on the defense mechanism of just trying to blend in so that no one notices that you're different -- and tries to beat you up because you're a freak. Social pressure isn't so invisible sometimes.

Y'know, I'd really like to get a "comments" thing set up in this blog. Seth has directed me to links on how to do this before, but I've never been able to invest the time to figure it out. I'll have to get on that. I feel like I'm losing the blog wars . . . if there is such a thing. And if there isn't, there ought to be!

Nothing too exciting at work today, but I ended up staying late to drive home a friend/co-worker who had to stay late for a meeting. It was a nice, quick trip into Seattle. The thing is, every time I drive anywhere in my car now that the weather is getting nicer, it reminds me that I really need to get my stereo fixed. I miss my music.

I received a nice Easter card from my grandma today. There was five dollars in it with instructions to buy some jelly beans on her. Unfortunately I can't really eat jelly beans right now (and Lord knows I loves me the jelly beans!) so I'll spend the money on "sweets" of some other kind.

The other night I sat down and started writing out ideas for different stories and settings. I've really been feeling the need to do some writing and be more creative on my own time. After I wrote out those ideas I opened another document and just started writing a story off the top of my head. I have no idea where it will go, but I'm working on ideas in the back of my mind that may work well.
