Plenty of trans people figure out who they are when starting out drag

I've never heard of this movie but if it has a decent trans portrayal I'll have to give it a look

It's a pretty awesome movie. It's about three homeless people in Tokyo (an alcoholic deadbeat, the trans lady we've been talking about, and a teenage runaway) that find an abandoned baby, and try to figure out where she came from, all while coming to terms their own inner issues, through Christmas and New Year.

I think the biggest source of humor from Miss Hana is that she's melodramatic, not from the fact that she's trans.

(The third act is also a serious heart-stopper on first viewing. I was terrified someone wasn't going to survive)

There are a couple scene that could be a little cringey - complete with one that I can't watch after the first time.

And a line that's pretty iconic.
"Could you bring me a trash can?"
*tiny trash can is delivered*
"...I can't fit in it..."

I can handle a few cringey scenes, but thanks for the heads up

I'm one of those people that experiences intense second-hand embarrassment, to the point where I have difficulty making it through scenes where a character embarrasses themself multiple times, so I'm kinda used to cringe for entirely unrelated reasons, haha.

Ah, okay. It's more violence on the homeless sort of deal.

Yeah. It's best watched at Christmas time/end of the year, but I had to skip through that one particular part.

I only saw it once years ago from a video rental place (remember those?) so my menory of the characters is a bit sketchy. But yeah I DO remember Hana being a bit dramatic at times. But I really liked the movie. I mostly tend to prefer more "serious" anime most of the time so it was right up my alley.

Gear grinder: That the insurance company keeps calling Mom and wants to have someone come to the home to get a urine sample and bloodwork to both Mom and Dad. Each time Mom has asked if this is mandatory and they have said no, but they keep calling. It really irks me that companies are doing this because it really shouldn't be up to them if someone has a doctor and gets checked by them. I tell you, health care in this country is a joke and it doesn't matter who you vote for or how many promises people make to make things better. It will never get better.

Good chance I'll lose my job soon because my mom is quitting hers soon [I work at the same place she does, I just never see the boss because my job is when the place is closed] and with there being nothing else around here that I'm capable of doing and no transportation I'm probably never going to enjoy having an income again lmao

On the bright side if mom quits and can't find a new job we'll be forced to move out of this hellhole no matter what grandma wants she won't be able to stop it

And then we'll move where the laws are on our side and everything will be better

I go in once a week to clean when the office is closed. I don't make a lot of money but it's enough to pay for what I need without being a burden about it.

The fact that most modern animes are doing only 13 episodes per season.

We just found a dead mouse in the garage! Mom just took care of it now.

At least it wasn't HALF a mouse. Then you have to worry about what ate the other half..... (LOL!)

Gear grind. Memorial Day weekend and graduation, all on the same weekend as our anniversary. I have to work on our anniversary Sunday due to schedule changes because of all the kids being off for graduation. Crap, there goes MY weekend! And we are already busy AF- in fact today was another 11 and 1/2 hr shift! So freaking tired.....

lol Ew. Well, better in the trash can than stuck in the walls!

Although at this point, I don't care if there are any dead ones in our walls. (But if there are I haven't smelled anything, thank god.) Ever since I put out new bait, from an idea I saw online, the mouse activity (esp sounds from the walls and attic) seems to have quieted down. *fingers crossed*


Grind... that time right before the you-know-what is due and I keep feeling like I want to eat everything in the house, but esp stuff we don't have. *sigh*

Agreed. My grind on that matter lately has been sort of the opposite. No appetite. I nibble about half my dinner and then lose interest. Have about three days worth of leftovers in the fridge. Plus when I get off it I get- shall we say, really "hot" in certain respects and it can be frustrating when I just don't have the energy to do anything about it, or the Mr's meds prevent his active assistance (or both).

Leftovers?? Where?? lol

My brother-in-law, bless his heart, come home this evening with some kind of take out for dinner, that I think was... Indian? And when he was putting away the left overs offered I could have some if I wanted. Some kind of spicy rice stuff and these nice oily fried pastry-ish things with some kind of veggie filling. Omgawd...

But I'm being good and resisting eating the rest. It's like I don't even actually feel hungry now, but still really craving some unknown thing. Ugh. Drives me nuts because I'm not generally a big eater anyhow, I'm one of those who will forget to eat... until this. But it isn't often this intense.

No, it was a whole mouse and was disposed of, so that's good. My fear was that I had stepped on it because I didn't notice it while coming around the car. But I think if I had stepped on it, I would have felt it.
