This is the outfit I wore yesterday with Lili, and decided to wear again today before going to game night. This picture doesn't do me or the outfit justice, as it got a "Thumbs Up" from several people.

Knowing that the cleaning lady was coming today, I made sure that most of the presence of Marian was out of view of the cleaning lady. However, I still left too much on display, and I wonder if she wonders what is going on in Mario's apartment. This was not intentional. I had a lot of stuff that I had to carry downstairs and load in my car to be donated to the GLBT center. And I didn't bother going back upstairs to double check things before I left the house.
I finally left for the GLBT Center at 12:30, and stopped by Mickey D's on the way in for something to eat. Maybe I should look at the experience of Morgan Spurlock (of "Super Size Me" fame), and give up on "fast food" altogether. But if I were to do so, I'd have to plan my meals much more carefully than I do now. And I'm not sure if I can do that.
On the way down to the GLBT center, I stopped into a supermarket to pick up something for the group to eat at game night (some nice chocolate cake), as well as some brow makeup I could use, more befitting the color of my wig. Once I got in my car, I applied this makeup and was pleased with the results. (I'll be sure to get more of this product the next time I'm in that store.)

Arriving at the GLBT center, I drove my car to the front door and unloaded all of my donations from my car. After parking my car, I asked a couple of people to help me move the pile of stuff from the hallway into the donation area. And then, I got a receipt for my goods. (Too bad that it won't help me much in a low income year.) It's nice to finally get this stuff out of my car and into a place where it can do some good. While in the thrift store, I saw two pairs of clip on earrings which I snapped up for a pittance. Nothing could replace the earring I lost yesterday, but this made me feel less naked while out as Marian today.
Next, it was on to my assignments for the day. Once I updated the calendar and web page for one group's meetings, I was tasked to find something of note for each Transgender US Citizen killed during 2017 for the Transgender Day of Remembrance at the GLBT Center. This was a very depressing task, as it was hard to process that each of these people were Transgenders and virtually all were killed as part of a hate crime. Some people might focus on the fact that a large number of these people were people of color. To me, I focused on the fact that all were transgender, and most were isolated from mainstream society. I could only get through 65% of the research before I had to stop. And then, it was time to go home for dinner.

The leftover Chicken Tetrazzini I had in the ice box was tasty - even though there wasn't much chicken in it. At least, with the leftover broth and leftover chicken I have left, I have the option of making this dish again, or making a different dish with some chicken soup on the side. But I knew that I had to cook some ground beef when I got home, as its last sale date was today - and I try to never cook any food after its final sale date.
I then drove to game night, and got involved in two long games. Although I can't remember the names of either game, I'd consider playing the first game again, but think twice about the second game. By the time we were done, it was approaching midnight, and I still had a 30 minute drive to get home.
On the ride home, I chatted with GFJ for a while. She has a cold, and is not sure whether she wants to risk infecting me before Thanksgiving. If she is remotely infectious, I'll pass on this weekend. If not, I want to see her after she visits her cousin on Saturday. Again, I have no idea of what I'm doing until the weekend comes.

Strangely enough, I haven't heard from the Cat Lady since last week. I wonder whether she was expecting me to write, or whether things were dying out because there wasn't much to chat about. If I had thought about it, I might have considered seeing her this Friday. If I knew what GFJ would end up doing, I could possibly schedule a Saturday dinner with the Cat Lady and schedule a day with YGM on Sunday.
