I am really looking forward to Christmas... no, I am not just simply looking forward to it, I am actually extremely excited about it. I spent a lot on presents, I want to buy lots of decorations (and a tree to put them on) when they go on sale in a couple days, and I even want to listen to Christmas carols! I have always preferred Christmas over New Year's. I think some see New Year's as the icing on the cake, but not me. To me it just feels like if a year was a story, Christmas would be the climax, with New Year's Day as the denouement, simply getting me ready to settle back to my normal life. So maybe for that reason I am seeing Christmas as the exciting conclusion of this fairy tale that was best year of my life.
Speaking of good times - last night was a great night for me. I went out with Debbie and Rhenaiya to see a drag show at Diva's. I have to be honest, I didn't really pay attention to the show because I was mingling. I am pretty sure I talked to every person in the bar last night. I guess it is fair to say I was a little bit drunk, but even if I did have help in the courage department, the result was that I had a lot of laughs and heard a lot of stories, and I made more than my share of people smile.
I spent the night in a crowd, but I was in the middle of my own personal celebration. Sure, everyone there was celebrating already - Christmas is just around the corner, and New Year's Day isn't far behind, but I have a special day of my own coming up, and so even though nobody at Diva's knew it, they were all there to help me celebrate my six month anniversary of living as a woman.
P.S. Thanks Debbie for inviting me out!
