Paramol is back! :)

Paramol -- the one over-the-counter opiate to rule them all -- is finally back on shelves behind UK pharmacy counters, after a prolonged hiatus due to licensing issues.

Packs of 32 pills, still bearing the familiar "pinned-out eye" logo, were seen in a major high street chemist today.

And lo, there was much rejoicing in the heart of Julie.

Unfortunately, I have a good reason to be very careful what I buy from that particular branch; but there are other stores in other towns.

I is a happy antelope!

Drew-Ashlyn's Seven Top Make-up Tips

There is an article here, in the Gay Star News, by the gorgeous Drew-Ashlyn Cunningham: Drew-Ashlyn’s seven top make-up tips | Gay Star News

Drew was one of the stars of the 2011 Channel 4 TV series, My Transsexual Summer. But what is so great, so refreshing about the article is that it makes only scant mention of this.

And this, of course, is exactly how it should be. It is an article is about make-up, not about anyone's gender or sexuality. Just a beautiful woman, passing on some of her best advice about cosmetics. The fact of her being trans is neither here nor there.
