More Q and A

18 Mar

Feeling better this morning, thank goodness, after a long day at work yesterday.

Saw a comment from Sfp first thing – i’ve gotten in the habit of checking my iphone as soon as i wake up to see if there’s anything exciting going on – and there she was.  She needs us to move the bloggers convention back from the first weekend in June since her kiddos will still be with her til the 9th.

Dear Sfp – will you come if we make it a different date?  Really???? That would be sooo cool.

Here’s what i was thinking – why i picked the first weekend in June.  i wanted to anchor it to a first weekend so we’d have the option of going to the munch – and, for anyone who wanted to, the play party afterwards.

We don’t have to anchor it to the munch/play party.  Or –

The first weekend in July is connected with the 4th of July holiday.  i thought that might be an advantage for people who were traveling, but also that people were more likely to be tied to family plans.  Plus, i think Mick and Molly might be at their Southwestern location for that weekend.

The first weekend in August would be fine with me, and i’d be willing to put it off that long if Mick and Molly and Donna and Bill would still be able to make it, if it means Sfp and maybe some other folks can come.  The down side of August is that it tends to be humid and nasty here, but i’ll be living with it anyhow.

So let me know your thoughts.  i think there was one other person who thought she and her Master might be able to come in June, and i haven’t heard from her yet.  Plus e-woman – i don’t know what might work for her.  Fortunately, there is still time to work it out.

We could even have a preliminary get-together in June and the real convention in September, if Mick and Molly and Donna and Bill were open to that.  i don’t know.  i’m easy.  And they wouldn’t both have to be here… although they could be.

On a different note  –

Got a question, as a number of us did, from Little Monkey.  She wants to know:

“How much physical damage is too much, for you? What are your limits on that? How much is too much? Where do you and yours draw the line? Bad bruising, welts, drawing blood, marks lasting a few days , or a few weeks, permanent scarring? What are your feelings on this topic?”

Good question, LM.  i gotta tell you – i think i sound like i’ve got all kinds of experience, but for real –

as close as i’ve gotten to “lasting marks” was when FS whacked me on the shoulder with his belt a couple of times.  It left welts that night, and the next morning there were tiny red welt marks that i could see if i looked really hard.

i liked that, but when i shared that with him,he got upset about it – he had not intended to leave marks!  What if i’d had to wear something that showed my shoulders?

i tried to reassure him that i really hardly ever wear off the shoulder dresses to my job in community mental health, but he wasn’t having it.  He threatened never to spank me again –

– which would have been a cruel punishment, wouldn’t it?  Especially since it wasn’t my fault i mark easy!

Of course, there was Sir D, and the marks from the risotto spoon:

 

The Spoon

And the marks it left:

 

It's 3/4 inches thick, maple wood. He barely tapped me with it. Need I say more?

 

 i was really proud of those.  But typically, by the next day, whatever marks there might have been have faded into obscurity.

Permanent scaring would be too much. 

Drawing blood would be too much.

i don’t know about marks – bruises or welts  – that last a few days or weeks – i guess not.  The risotto spoon experience seemed pretty intense to me, and the marks faded quickly.  i don’t know what it would take to leave more.

But i do like marks, and you know, that seems to be the kind of thing that changes over time.  So i’m not totally locked into an answer.   Also, you know me, it would depend on how “He” felt about it

Thanks for asking, LM.   It is still Q & A month, so if you got ’em, ask ’em…

And let me know – let’s continue the discussion about dates for the blogger convention.

    I actually have some vacation to burn by July 10th — and want to make some sort of trip somewhere because we all know I’m going to be a smidge depressed.

    but we don’t have to rearrange things for me

      O, yes!! I think maybe we do – that would be entirely too cool! So you could actually do the first weekend in July or a different weekend in June? I’m planning to go to Florida sometime in June, I think… but when is still open. hmm… thinking… Keep your options open, ok?

    lm left me that q too, and i never did “open” to q’s on the blog (my bad, but my creative juices have been pouring of late, and we move when we move, right?)

    so i’ll put my answer on my blog, move some posts around, maybe i will post it for Sunday, since i’ll be *getting* my marks when most folks will be reading…and i like the imagry of that picture in my head!

    such a bad girl!

    i love your rissotto spoon marks and aisha? you have a great ass.

    just sayin’….

      @’Nilla – Can’t wait to hear your response – it’s been fun running around reading different people’s responses!

      And,um, thanks for the compliment! {blushing – but not as red as my ass was…}

    Actually moving the conference back would be good. I didn’t think about when school ends. I also need to know if there is a campground somewhere close by, ’cause there is no hotel budget in my near future. Sigh…I love, Love, LOVE the idea of coming to the conference, but probably won’t be able to do it this year. Just in case, August would be better.

    Thank you for your response to my question(s). I’m going ot link all the answers together on my page, by tomorrow at the latest.

    Oh, and I want a risotto spoon! Nilla’s right, you do have a lovely ass.

    I know we plan to be in our SW location for the 4th of July. Not sure yet about what August looks like, but that could be possible. ANd our September is pretty flexible, since kids will be off to college or other pursuits.

    I’m not sure how able to travel I may be, considering I’ll have a newborn who’ll still be nursing, but August wouls probably be best… the later the better! 😛

    it’s a distinct possibility for Sir and i… He’s still away tho so i’ll not be able to say for sure until He’s back.
