gender bending and unrelated thoughts

Tuesday, January 25, 2011

okay--so i keep wondering if people can't figure my gender out. i am a 55 year old lady. i know my username is clumBOY, but there is an unrelated reason for that. when i first became an internet-ophile i had to choose a name for a yahoo account. since i was joining a clumber spaniel forum i was trying to think of a name--clumbergirl, clumbermom, all those kinds of names were all taken. our first clumber was a big old goofy boy named "doc" so i tried "clumboy" and it was accepted. the name is an ongoing tribute to our beloved boy, who we lost very suddenly several years ago to an autoimmune disease.
i have encountered some confusion over the years because of the use of this name--on the daylily forums i belong to i was asked several times what gender i was. the fact that my photo has both rob and i in it doesn't make things any clearer. so i probably should concoct another photo of myself to post on here to make life less ambiguous.
good day yesterday--today is shaping up the same. warmer weather means our youngest girl and i will be going to the park. dorijane is seven now--so she isn't a spring chicken, but you wouldn't know it to watch her play with her toys and run around in the snow.
everybody have a great day!

    I did not have a doubt about your gender! Some people get confused by user names. They are supposed to be telling us something about the person, I guess? At any rate, the user name didn't fool me :)

    Ok, you know your blog title caught my eye, lol. I did think you were a male when I saw the name. I like to stick to one name on all the message boards too, it makes it wasier to remember my log in name and password.
