They think its all over, it is now!

Though there is no sign of any crowd on the pitch! Mind, unless you’re Britsh, and remember 1966, you might not get that comment lol! Well, New Order, and 1990 did revive it, but all the same…

Yes, not only is the story now officially finished, its been edited to be readable by some wonderful man, and sent to Simon as well, though only after a modicum of delay, as the internet crashed here for about half an hour or so. Alright, I cheated, I went and got my wireless pointer device and sent it off, but…all good fun!

As some may had noticed, it had been a while since I’d written much, certainly anything longer than a 1 chapter short story, thats for sure. Though none of the 3 chapters are that long, its nearly 10K as a whole, and thats definitely been a long while since that happened. The main pleasant surprise was that the actual writing process actually was a pleasure. Whether that was because I was writing something fresh, and with a great inspiration, or whether it was simply a case of taking the time factor out of it, and the words flowed. Either way, the only frustration I had was finding time to get the words down, not trying to find any to put down.

So yes, I got something out of it that I hadnt felt for a while towards the end of my regular writing, a pleasure in writing a story. There were a couple that had made me feel that way, though ironically neither are on the Archive for various reasons. But in terms of general MC writing, I’d hit a major rut!

I’m not saying when I will write again, though that will be more down to time than desire, its fair to say, but it will happen at some point, I enjoyed doing it again, not a task that had to be done.

I did think about letting you all hear a ‘certain lady’ talking, but hey, if you want to do that, its not hard to find on You Tube. There is an interesting interview in 4 parts on there, but also a section from a talking movie, where it is actually Louise talking, which thanks to Heather, was how I found out how Margaret, sorry, Louise actually spoke in the first place.

But no, lets go with a pop video, hopefully some will spot the connection here at least, I’m sure James, and probably Heather will, if no one else does.

No Garfunkel here, just Simon, a track from the Graceland LP, one of the greats of all time

Rocket Man

Or perhaps more specifically in my case, Rocket Girl, maybe? Yes, its kink time, friends, one it seems that isnt just mine.

Now I can show my age lol. Back in the 60’s, especially once the Apollo missions were planning for, and then going to the moon, we got TV coverage of everything. Well, alright, maybe not quite non stop coverage of the flight, but you get my drift? But the one thing that took my attention as a child was the Astronaut suit, and helmet, and thinking how much fun it would be to wear one of those. But back then, space flight was a ‘mans thing’ and I doubt designing one for a woman was a thought they never even considered. I dont know if they made replica ones for children, I dont remember seeing any, but suspect they did. But lets face it, they would have been aimed at boys anyway!

No thought of course went into just how heavy the real things must have been to wear though!

What probably appealed to me more, was the cartoon versions, with the girl in the cute, sexy space outfit, and sometimes a helmet, sometimes not. So in that sense,  ‘real life’ TV series like Space 1999 and UFO appealed to me more, female space pilots in cute craft, not great big rockets! But a non scientifically minded Brit was never going to become an astr0naut for real, back then, that was for sure. I believe Captain Scarlett also had female pilots long before they became reality?

I know that ‘if you have the money’ space travel for the public isnt that far off, even if it is only a few orbits of Earth, and nothing more. But no, I havent got the money, and youth has passed me by, so I cant see me being amongst them. Though to be honest, unless they provide spacesuits for you to wear, I probably wouldnt find it that much fun anyway! Cute little solo flight spacecraft, and ray guns still seem a fair way off though lol! Maybe I just never grew too old for dressing up ? 😉

Right, the video, and yes, I’m going to show stage my current favourite unknown artist, Gary Simmons. You might have guessed the song from the title, its that Elton John classic. Why this guy isnt a major star, I just dont know.

Kids in America

The irony of this, the song is about American kids, but its sung by a girl from London, England! But anyway, apart from the video, thats the only English thing here.

Getting the house to myself for a week over New Year was a real change, I actually had some form of power over the TV remote control lol! I actually also had some form of power over the cats, the fact I was feeding them! That too made a major change!

What it did enable me to do was watch some American Football. Yes, Sunday I did see some NFL, but principally I’m talking the college bowl games. No, I’m not strictly affiliated to any college, for an obvious reason, I didnt go to any of them! I sort of root for Washington Huskies (think where the uni is?) but not in a major way, its just the city thing. Yale (the only college game I’ve seen live) Bulldogs (I think?) and Idaho Vandals (gold and silver uniform, thats it!) are others I sometimes watch out for, but thats about it. Oh, and I’m getting into Oklahoma State, I have no idea why…whistles innocently… I suspect Mary Brooks (think about it) probably never went to college with her track record (and the different nature of things back then), but someone might tell me otherwise.

The thing is, the NFL, with the possible exception of Tebow, you know what you’re getting, the offences and defences might vary slightly, but thats it. College football has all sorts of crazy goings on. I got to see Air Force (and a couple of others) playing some crazy kind of option offense, a total new thing to me, but I gather a number of college teams play this way? But yes, its fun, seemingly far more fun than the NFL with all the bands and things. Maybe thats because there isnt the same money at stake?

BCS Championship, given what I said about Ok. State earlier, I’m not going to say much about that. Were they robbed of their place? Kate would say yes, Kris would say no, me, I’m none the wiser to be honest!

Sport in the US is different, the kids go to college, then go on to the pro’s if good enough, but are drafted into teams, so in theory all teams have an equal chance, even if it doesnt work out that way! Over here, a small number of teams just buy up everybody, no surprises in results long term, and thats probably why I’m not a soccer fan. But yes, I’m looking forward to an NFL game live, but I suspect if I lived over there, college football might just hold more interest for me.

The video is older than the kids playing in those bowls, its from the early eighties. Now thats showing my age. Hopefully all will enjoy

Respect Yourself!

This could be a command to someone from Mistress Stevie Lou, but I’m not the one to say that lol! I must say the image of me as a Latex, or Leather clad Domme is more likely to give me a fit of the giggles than anything wholesomely Dominant, but anyway…I guess an image of me clad like that might be fun, but cant somehow see me making a full time career of it somehow! But as an image to play up to, well its as much fun as the robot one, it has to be said!

The thing is, I’m one of those people who typically plod along in their everyday life, nothing terribly exciting, and enjoying a couple of nice holidays each year, but the rest of the year, work hard, not play terribly hard, it has to be said. Just my simple, economic style, and hey, I’m happy with that. The snag is, then someone goes and suggests something lightheartedly, and I start thinking, hey, thats not a bad idea. Which is why I’ve spent time today on Expedia and Hotels.com looking at short breaks to a certain Portugese city. 😉 No, I dont really blame S.B., but I wish I didnt get tempted like this sometimes, though maybe not often.

No, I dont plan to go out there and become his Mistress or anything. Heck, I dont even expect to play at being his Mistress if I do get out there anyway. And for sure I dont expect to be greeted by a latex catsuit lol! But I know he’d like to meet fellow Garden members, last September got me up for doing the same, so…and besides Portugal is far warmer than here at present, been a filthy day to be honest, and havent ventured out at all.

I know, its not a fortune, but I’m not that far away (relatively) from retirement, so probably ought to be hanging on to my money, but…he’s got the idea in my head now, thats the trouble! The thing is, with the holiday only being 3 weeks off, I havent long to think about it, and me and snap decisions, well…not really my style! I know, its crazy, but I’m tempted. Going to think it over to the weekend (incredibly I’ve got a Saturday off this week!), and take it from there. I would love to say its 50/50, but I know how dangerous that is with me! I tend to go yes, lets do it from there!

It was nice to see a pic of S.B. appear this week, I know what a tricky choice that is, I went down the same road myself before posting the one of me. Will I meet him later this month, lets call it a possible, and leave it at that.

The music, some will see the in joke here, others wont. Apologies, Bruce Willis is not the greatest singer (to put it mildly) of all time, but this just seems to fit so well, for more reasons than one. Try to enjoy, or get the in joke at least!
