    Here's some brief updates -Been in my new place for a month.  It's been working out fine, even though I have to get used to having a roommate again.  It's nice to be able to park right in front of where I live rather than blocks away.I go to Detroit next week to chair a panel at THE premier labor history conference.  My school is paying for it through their Faculty Development Fund.  Plus, I'll get to hang out with Karen Brad, something we haven't done in almost four years.I finally received copies of my book.  Look for an announcement about that soon.Me and Josie are doing just fine.  She really helped me out when I needed it.Getting new book proposals out there.  I hope to sign some contracts soon.I still don't have internet at my new place, so I get here when I can.The ex-wfe is being a bitch again.Mere

    I still don't have my internet access at home sorted out yet!  Anyhow, here are some quickies (so to speak):I am pretty much fully out at work.  In academia I am almost there.  I am waiting on some word concerning a possible full-time teaching job, so until that happens, and I might need to get a new doctor due to insurance reasons, HRT is once again put on hold.  Still, I am out and free.Me and Josie had a great time in New Mexico.AND - a major academic publisher in New York wants to offer me a 2-book contract!  The first will be published later this year.Okay, gotta run to class now.  More later.

    I hardly blog anymore!  I don't have the time!Karen Brad is writing enough about her trip here.  Because of her trip I am doing some serious thinking about maybe going back to the boats this summer (if I can!).  It was great being able to talk about Chicago history and architecture like that.Josie will be here next week.  8 days away!  I cannot wait.  For the first time I will be able to really give her a Chicago tour, like I did for Karen.  We just never had the time before.Things have gone south with the museum.  I need to get out of there.  I can't believe a place I loved so much became so bad.  I cannot tolerate how they treat me, especially after all I have done for them.On the plus side, I am going to be publishing another book this year, my school is trying to get me on fulltime, and I have another conference to attend.  But the one big thing is that I am pretty much fully out.  And that is a relief.

My new insurance just kicked in.  What I need to do now is to make an appointment with my new doctor and get the ball re-rolling with transitioning.  Fun stuff!

My kid spent Friday night at my flat, and we did some running around Saturday.  We had such a good time.  It made me miss her all that much more.  We'll probably going to do that again this coming Friday.  I hadn't had a Saturday out like that in ages!

I had to report to work earlier than usual this morning for part of our U-505 Behind the Scenes Tour.  I had no idea who the group was I would be taking through the boat.  Some press members were there.  Upon conclusion of my tour, which went well despite losing my voice today, a photographer for Wreck Diver magazine wanted some shots of me.  He mentioned how one of the people on my tour was none other than John Chatterton.  I went nuts.  He saw this and made sure I had a proper introduction to this amazing person.

Chatterton is the central figure in Shadow Divers, the true story of two men who discovered the wreck of a U boat off the coast of New Jersey, and how they not only dangerously explored the wreck, but unlocked the mystery of its identity.  A documentary was made about this story.

He was the nicest man!  He asked me for my card (don't have one!), and didn't have one of his own to give to me.  The photographer got some shots of us together, and it looks like I will be in Wreck Diver magazine coming up soon!  Although I am still nursing a cold, and had a bad voice, it put me in such a good mood.

Lisa Snyder, an art and architecture historian at UCLA, has been developing this incredible virtual reality tour of the Columbian Exposition, the World's Fair, of 1893.  We had this at the museum as a very temporary exhibit this past weekend.  She was such a sweetheart!  When I spoke to her a second time later in the day I offered my services to help her even further with the project.  She immediately agreed, then said "You'll rue the day you said this!"  I can't wait.  This is a major historical project.  That means I might get out to L.A. more.  I do have to pay up my bet to Lilienne.

First Japanese television, now UCLA, now the print media!  Not bad for a tranny who hasn't even begun to transition!
