Weekend in review
Saturday was the monthly meeting of the Whip Club - actually the last one for the summer. I wrote a very tongue in cheek review of this club a month ago. If you missed it you can read about it HERE. (i do believe it was one of the more humorous blog entries I have written.)
I wasn't entirely sure W and I would be going. The forecast for the day was hot - hotter - hottest. And it just isn't much fun to stand around in an open (no shade) park swinging whips at wobbling balloons in that much heat. In packing to go to W's I threw in my lap top - just in case we didn't go - so I would have something to wile away the hours.
But much to my surprise W suggested we go along......... so go along we did.
On the plus side if you stood in the shade (what little there is of it) there was a slight breeze to keep you from dying of heat exhaustion - or getting sun stroke. There were a few submissives there this time and we congregated in the shade watching the doms swinging........... whips folks whips!!
On the downside - for some reason - there was a police car parked at the end of the park keeping a close eye on our shenanigans.......... that kinda put a damper on my offer to be a living breathing target.......... as long as I could stay in the shade. I kinda think the rifle cracks of the whips had put the general populace on edge - and the police showed up to make sure there was nothing nasty and evil going on.............. more's the pity.
(on a side note - and because this is my blog and I can bitch if I want to - it has been 2 weeks since my ass saw the business end of a whip - or flogger - or paddle for that matter - so I was hoping for a little tease - a little taste - but everyone's nerves were on edge with the local constabulary looking on.)
The nice thing about this whip club (in my humble opinion) is that following it - they hold a munch - where everyone is invited - not just the whip wielding Doms. I do like munches - for the most part. They are a more inviting way to sit and chat with friends from the lifestyle. Play parties seem to be all business - and not a whole lot of in depth discussion.
This munch was not quite so chatty. I think it had a lot to do with the overcrowding of the restaurant. It intrigued me that the best conversation was held in the parking lot when we were all leaving.
I did hear some discussion about continuing the monthly munches over the fall and winter months - even though the whip club will be on hiatus. I would like that........ play parties - real PLAY parties - are few and far between during the winter - and i miss the play aspect - as well as the touching base with friends.
Ahhhh yes.. one other thing we did this weekend - was try and get me into my new corset. I have no idea what went wrong - I had sent my measurements (no cheating on them either) and the size of the most recent corset I bought - BUT - despite all of that - the corset I received is just too damn small. (see my pouty face??)
On a bright note though - and YEAH for at least one company understanding "customer service" - the woman who runs this corset on line shop - has agreed to meet up with me in September at Fetish Weekend - take back the corset that doesn't fit - and fit me with a new one. YAY !!!
A question for those of you who own / wear corsets - what the hell do you wear WITH them??? I have one long black skirt that I wear constantly with my corset. BUT as I am thinking of buying a leather corset - complete with straps and buckles and zippers - I can't see this fancy skirt working with leather. What the hell do I wear with it??? What do YOU wear with a corset??
And that is about it for my Weekend in Review...............
