Writing Fast

29 Aug

First of all ~ hoping that all my friends on the northeast coast came through the storms ok.  MoR had some damage to his new house, from the earthquake, which kinda breaks my heart for him, but i’m glad he’s ok.  

‘Nilla’s ok.  Sky, over at Desire to Yield,  is ok and has power back.  And some of you are probably in that area and I don’t even know it so i hope all is well with you too.

i have to be at work at 7:00 today and tomorrow ~ yes, that’s BE there, and 7:00 A.M.  So i’ll have to write fast.

i wish i could do like ‘Nilla and write my posts ahead of time, but i’ve only managed to do that once.   Maybe twice.  Out of four hundred and something posts.  Getting ahead of the game just doesn’t seem to be my style.

So this is a real life, practically vanilla post.  i went to the Fourth Sunday munch last night.  Just two months after my not-quite-bordering-on-whiny post about not being comfortable there, and i really am comfortable, and glad to see a bunch of people, and started ~and sustained ~conversations like a big girl.  Yay me!

Cool things going on ~ i am {once again} talking to someone on collarme.  Which ~ i’m always talking to people from collarme, but often they’re people who are friends rather than um, prospects.  Or candidates.  Or whatever you want to call it.  

Not wanting to jinx myself, i’ll just say i am exchanging messages with someone who seems solid.  He’s actually local too, how cool is that?  However, just say under your breath, “Very cool,” and let it go ~ no premature celebrations, ok?  

i have not heard anything else from the guy i was talking about a while back who just suddenly disappeared.  And that’s ok.  i may send him a message someday and just say hi, or not.

Two weeks til COPE.  Two weeks.  i’m pretty excited.  This time last year, i was going with Sir D, and had never been to an event before.  i can’t believe how much my life has changed in a year.

O – this was cool ~ there’s a Dom i know ~ who i actually went out with years ago when i met him on a vanilla dating site, when i was just beginning to explore kink.  I re-met him on Collarme a while back, and we had coffee one morning.  We’re still not a match, but he’s a nice guy.  

So he messages me this weekend and wants to know if i know this particular sub.  He was supposed to meet her and was wondering what she was like.

And ~ I do know her, and could tell him that she’s terrific.  Which i thought was pretty cool.  There’s something about the idea of community that always delights me.

In the same way, it tickled me to read on Sbf’s blog about the discussion she started on fetlife, and then go to fet and comment on it.  Like a “behind-the-scenes’ thrill.  

It makes me think of Sfp, and how much i enjoyed her visit here.  How much i’m looking forward to ‘Nilla’s visit.   i’m hoping that Mick and Molly, and maybe Donna and Bill, will come hang out with us too.  

And it reminds me how immeasurably much blogging and the blogging community has enriched my life.  And that just makes me smile.

Ok, i’ve babbled long enough.  That’s pretty much a view of my ~ well, my everyday life.  Not quite vanilla, not quite kink.   Lots of fun.

    great real-life post…your stuff is always interesting, you know? How lovely that vanilla and kink are beginning to braid together so sweetly for you (i’ve been doing a lot of thinking about ‘braiding’…how sometimes it is loose, and messy and falls apart, and sometimes it’s tight and woven into the overall picture of who we are…)

    anyway, as i was saying before i interrupted myself…*laugh*…”fist bump” on the CM chatter. And lovely that you and MoR are still talking a bit…sorry about his house and all…

    and really sorry about the 7 a.m. work thing (smiles)…i too have a busy week ahead, finishing up work projects for my two piecework jobs, and then jumping into camping preparations…but the skies are blue, the temperature is *almost* cold, the trees are dancing in the light breeze…and it looks like a lovely day is ahead.

    be well, heartsister….counting down the days until we get some quality hang-out time!! (37-36 if you don’t count the day i fly out…!)

      Dear ‘Nilla,

      Do you know that I love your comments? Well, I do.

      Too tired to actually think, but thank you for being you.

      36 days huh? Yeah , I think I mismultiplied the first time I figured it. And really, I usually know my times tables. LOL

    I had an early am work call too today, but 7 am. that’s crazy. Hard to be civil to anyone that early.

      It is crazy, isn’t it? I’m glad someone appreciates the difficulty of that! Thanks, Mick!
