As much as I'd have gone to game night if it were held today, there are times that I'd rather hang out with women as a peer and be expected to maintain a "near perfect" feminine presentation. Tonight was one of those nights, and I was fortunate that there was a women's meetup group getting together at a restaurant in Rye for dinner tonight....

Recently, TV/Movie production is being filmed near the South Street Seaport. Unlike my former work location (where there was a TV/Movie studio in a nearby building), I didn't expect to see any thing like the images below in walking distance of where I work.
The above production went on through the day, and they were still working when I left.

I'm very grateful that I negotiated to leave the office early on Thursdays. My boss gets to know that I follow a predictable schedule, and I know that I won't get any flak for leaving early to turn myself from Mario into Marian. I think I'd go nuts without some Marian time every week, and I know that I need that special camaraderie that only women can share.
Since tonight's game night was cancelled, I looked for (and found) another meetup where I could go in Marian mode. And tonight's meetup was with a group of women I've dined with before. As expected, I had a great time - as I was just another woman in a group of women. If anyone has any suspicions about me, I'll be glad to say that I am a pre-op transgender. But no one has yet asked me any questions.
I miss the Whine and Dine group. But I'm fortunate - I have other groups of women with whom I can associate, when GFJ is otherwise unavailable....
