"Hi, this is not really a question as much as a "warning" to other transsexuals who have a sense of humor as twisted as mine. When it came time to change my name I fell victim to my own joy of ironic humor. My name before was Russell Joslin and when it came time to change it I could not resist the idea of using Jocelyn Russell. It also served as a reminder to myself of same person, different emphasis. Unfortunately it has caused some problems when dealing with my family and friends in some social situations. Usually along the lines of "so your name was Jocelyn Joslin???" So far the solution has been solved with my mother introducing me as her daughter Jay, but I thought I would give you the chance for some light hearted brain storming. "
(From: Jocelyn Suzanne Russell)

63:58 One of our favorite fun movies, "Gaudi Afternoon", is based on a novel by Barbara Wilson, who has since changed her name to Barbara Sjoholm. Her most recent work, "The Pirate Queen: In Search of Grace O'Malley and Other Legendary Women of the Sea" trades fiction for a factual exploration of the little-heralded but quite adventurous women of yore. Her other works include the anthology "Steady as She Goes: Women's Adventures at Seas," and the award-winning memoir "Blue Windows: A Christian Science Childhood".
