Recently Eddie Izzard graced us with the marvelous presence of their person over at Lithuania, Vilnius. They kindly explained the title of the show “Wunderbar“, how it’s such a positive German word, and how close it sounds to Wonderbra, which they likely wore, and then killed us all by assessing the situation, our perked up eyes, possibly watching their chest with beautiful breasts on it, for most know Eddie Izzard as the man in the dress comedian, but they did kindly explain that they’re transgender, and so I don’t know if it’d be okay to call them a he, or should I call them a she, or do they even have a preference… Anyway, Eddie felt the moment: “I know what you all thinking now, what you all want to ask” and started lifting their arm up… And grabbed the necklace! “where did I get my necklace, you ask! At a necklace store!” And then, if we were not dead enough, a finishing blow: “And tits at ikea. Took me 32 years to assemble them.”
My two awesome friends took me to see Wunderbar show, and it was the best damn time. Eddie is a gorgeous person both on the outside, and on the inside too. I was very happy to witness it all.
It’s the stuff that happened after that got to me. Because both my parents caught a virus. Severe virus. Got knocked out in a span of one day, with high fever running, cough, runny nose, headaches, and bleeding sore throats. It’s now been over a week as I’m trying to not catch it too, and get them healthy at the same time. Spent close to a hundred euros on medications alone, and that with all the possible discounts. When 12 pills that you need to take 2 or 3 of a day are 6-8 euros, and they’re not the only meds you need either, things really do add up.
They’re only getting better now, like they can move, walk around, make themselves some food, and actually keep it down, because, at least my mother, threw everything up for a few days. Wish me luck to not catch it, and them get better soon, okay?
But even with this nasty little thing, I really can’t say the week was bad. There were some other sad news, stories that are mostly not mine to tell. But I have an overload of work, meaning I’ll get paid a bit better, and there’s even commissions of which I’m very pleased. One I just finished.
My favorite part about commissions is when I show the person my interpretation of their idea (because I can’t see what’s in their head, and not due to attempt to change things up), and they happily cheer that they love it right away. Honestly, that’s bloody better than sex. And I’d know, since being trans who is far from transitioning still, I can’t have sex the way I’d like to! Ha. Silver lining.
Anyway, made two beautiful necklaces, a few bracelets, and some very curious items with resin. I’m still a little confused why some items get those miniature air bubbles in them, and others don’t, while all the process was the same, and the only real difference is possibly the item I set in it. If anyone knows anything about it, let me know.
So, yeah. April, so far, treated me quite alright. Now, if only they finally turned the damn heating off…
