Soft Butches Play with Wires
Well, I found this over at starzero's place. He is actually a flaming femme dyke. hehe. Not me, I tell ya.
other women in feminine dress, but you can
still wear a skirt when forced. Guys only
consider you mildly threatening, if at all. You
attract some men, though most can figure out
you're not into men. You have little trouble
being pals with them. You're not afraid of
tools and if you had the urge, you could
probably handle hanging cabinets or installing
hardwood floors. Still, you're not a motivated
a do-it-yourselfer and usually only get caught
in home improvement projects to impress or
placate the girl you're dating.
I am proud to say that for the first time I have done something electrical (I am always afraid I'll do something wrong and burn the house down)... I changed the lightswitch in my closet. It is quite exciting, since it always sort of went phfftt! phfft! when I turned it on. The light would blink on and off, I'd jiggle the switch to more of that phfft sound, and the light would go off. I was sure I'd have to pay an electrician a couple hundred bucks to tear out the 50 yr old wiring, with a resultant rainfall of plaster dust.
But no, I just opened up that trusty second hand Time-Life beginning electricity book I bought when I became a homeowner 3 years ago, and there were such clear and visually appealing instructions I decided to go for it. I took the book with me, got some sort of voltage tester thingie for $3 and a new switch for about $1.20, came home and did it!
I am not dead, the light actually goes off as per indicated by the lettering on the switch (before it was always a crap shoot which direction would work), and I haven't heard any more scary nonstandard electrical sounds.
So there ya go. Soft butch hehe.
Now I am dead tired but I will work on some drawings for a Spelling Book.
Then to bed pretty early cuz I will be driving across town to speak to two classrooms of grade 2 kids about being an illustrator at half past noon. so early! :)
