The Cindys

For those people who helped me get through 2004. Please note the absence of relatives (as they don't count) or politicians.

MissRoach: My favourite person on the Guardian's talkboards - a well-read (and, as Lily Tomlin once said, well-viewed) woman who's also very approachable. Sadly no longer a regular... come back Kate (her real name), I miss you.

Gerry Kroll: The man behind Soundtrackers, and source of many of my album buys this year. Not a business, but a person.

Wolf Masterson and Glen Kirusu: The most consistent source of shots of T-girls. Thanks, Yahoo!, and thanks guys.

Jen, TRL, KMB, Senor Alba, and all the others I've written or talked with. I'm proud to call you all friends.

Patricia Araujo, Vicki Richter and Ivana Diamonds, among others: These women are all examples of T-girls. One very good reason to move to Brazil (more open to such ladies than here). Thanks for the fantasies.

Maureen Dowd: Brilliant leader writer for The New York Times. And virulently anti-Bush, which probably makes her one of Jen's favourites.

Film Score Monthly: Self-explanatory.

eBay: The original and best.

Karen Vinton: Wherever you are now, thanks for being the closest thing to a girlfriend I've ever had. Even if you are, technically, a lesbian.

And thank you for all the music to Jerry Goldsmith, Elmer Bernstein, Michel Colombier, Fred Karlin, Billy May, David Raksin and all the other practitioners of the art who passed on this year. Jerry in particular finally brought home to me the truth of the saying that as long as we have the music, they'll never really leave us.

And finally, thank you to Laetitia Casta, Jessica Alba, Lindsay Lohan, Petra Nemcova, Hilary Duff, Jennifer Garner, Gwen Stefani, Britney Spears, and above all others Cindy Crawford. I couldn't have done it without you.

Nice of you to thank your fellow writers/cohorts and top ladies for what they provided in 2004; unfortunately you may have heard that one of them, Petra Nemcova, was invovled in that horrible Pacific tsunami disaster, managing to survive but suffering some internal injuries and a busted hip in the process. On top of that, her boyfriend was reported lost in the storm, so I propose that we wish Petra the best in her recovery from this horrible, painful ordeal, and that she is in our prayers and hearts, as are all the many victims in this worldwide catastrophe...

Senor Alba/Butch here. You're welcome. In response, I'm pinching your idea.

(I'll make it up to you with another Black Field collabo, maybe...?)

With a title like 'The Cindys' I really thought it would be all about Cindy Crawford, each extolling her excellent values.

Not so. I have one question. What's a T-girl?

But, good awarding.

A T-girl is a transgendered female (a girl born inside a boy's body and who eventually takes steps to become on the outside what she is inside; to differentiate, they call those ladies actually born as women G-girls or GG for short, i.e. genetic girls). Of course, it also comes vice versa.

They also come in pre-op and post-op (before taking the final step to avoid disgusting the Jerry Falwells and George W. Bushes of this world, and after). Vicki Richter, for instance, is pre-op and happy to stay that way.
