Oh my love, my darling…

Thats everyone fooled on the video lol! 😛

Due warning, before we get started, this blog wont be short! So if you only have a couple of moments, come back later!

So, catching up on rest of week…

Wednesday was fairly quiet, the rest of the week hasnt been, so lets leave that day at that.

Thursday was moving day, as Kate headed for the Berkshires, and I headed across a few state lines to New York. The ride up to Boston went smoothly (barring traffic, hardly a surprise, but we had tons of time), and because Kate had a room booked, I got to experience the lounge at a station for the first time. The Red Cap was of the opinion that I could stay there after Kate was gone (her train was 50 minutes before mine), but the lady in the lounge thought otherwise lol. Fair by me, I was her guest, so once she leaves, I should go, but he wasnt impressed lol.

The journey to Stamford was interesting, not so much because I remembered anything from 30 years ago, though I got one memory as we pulled into New London. That first time, 30 years ago, me, and my partner of the time were visiting her elderly aunt on the trip, across the River Thames (pronounced differently to the London one) at Groton. 2 months or so later, she died, and as my partner said at the time, she’d probably only been hanging on to see her UK family one last time, and then…I’m not saying how many ‘doggy bags’ they found in her house after death, but there were, err, a few!

Oh fine, Stamford station was entertaining, mainly because all Eric and I had seem pics of each other, were a few on Facebook. And you have to remember, mine were designed to show me at my best, not my everyday look, but anyway, we got together in the end, and… The rest of Thursday, and Friday, I’ve visited the family, and they are all a delight to know. I sort of knew that, online, but even better for real! I got to see some of the area on various trips, which was nice too.

Oh right, Saturday! Fine, fine, we’ve got there now! No, no pics at this point, sorry. The snag with new, sparkly dresses, is that some of the sparkly stuff isnt going to stay on the dress, perfectly, you get my drift? 😉 But yes, the dress was gorgeous, though in hindsight, given that I need to wear a bra, I should have brought a bandeau bra with me, but hindsight is a wonderful thing! Would have made picture set up so much easier lol.

Oh, btw, I’m maid of honor, and I have to make a toast. Yes, I found out the latter at a couple of hours notice, but like all good actresses, I improvised. Might not have been the standard toast, but hey…I got through! The service first, was very nice, just so proud to be there, let alone in the position of honor that I was. The setting for the wedding was delightful, at Cortlandt Manor, but unless you’re in the area, just a note of reference. The food was good, though far too much for a modest British appetite, but besides that…

The additional magic moment of the meal afterwards, one of the servers recognized me, from one of the documentary things I’ve done in the past. I’m assuming its the LA one, from April 2015, from description, but dont quote me on that. Now others want to see it! I have no idea if there is still a link to it, but I’ve asked the lady who done it if there is, but awaiting a reply. Suspect finding it might be a challenge, even if she can, as she was doing these regularly, but we will see…? Yes, its amazing where ‘fame’ can catch up with you, lol!

Oh, the service, well, what with holding my bouquet, the ring for the groom, and the bride’s bouquet at one point, quite an experience, but I got through, and loved every moment of it. I also got to meet a number of lovely people that I will probably never meet again, which will be a shame, but is part of life, I guess? Was a wonderful time, so very glad I could be there, and part of it.

Discretion says I’m not describing events after the reception, OK? Nothing bad, but entertaining, just maybe…?

This morning has been quiet, as all recover after the big day, including me! I actually went for brunch at a nearby diner/grill to the hotel, and if I needed reminding how crazy US portions could be, they did it! The omelette was large enough on its own, but by the time you add in toast, and potatoes, well…thankfully, plenty of coffee! How much more food I need today, not a lot! So currently, I’m in the hotel, watching Kansas City play in the NFL, so…chilling! Tonights ESPN baseball, well, its the Dodgers, so…I guess I can survive for a while, while the Gelhaus family recover after yesterday!

I will get back there at some point, in fact need to, as one of the wedding presents was a mask (if not more) of the Creature from the Black Lagoon, and yes, as if I’d love to see that, you bet I do. Hey, I’d love to wear a full suit (if anyone has one laying around lol?), though at my age, underwater swimming scenes wearing it might be beyond my skills, but I’d try, if I had to! 😀

Tomorrow sees the start of the return to reality, and the return to the UK. Thankfully, with my new shifts, no work until Friday, by which time a very quiet, very shy team leader of mine will have had her birthday. Yes, it might have been mentioned most of September. Yes, Madi, I love you, I really do xxx I’ve accepted the old age thing, btw. I’d originally planned to get to JFK by public transit, but Stacie wasnt happy with the thought of that at present, and in truth, I wasnt entirely looking forward to it either. So yes, going there by shuttle now…angel…and then the wheelchair thing again! 😀

Even if there are any pictures of me as the creature from the Black Lagoon, you’ll probably have to wait until Tuesday, or Wednesday, and back in the UK before seeing them. I will post wedding pics, of me at least, once I have some, OK?

And so endeth the longest blog, with its traditional moment, the video. No, I’ll save a certain Dave Edmonds song, in case I need it, and go for a song I didnt hear yesterday at the reception, but which sums up the day so perfectly. Yes, I’m old enough to remember this, I know…

As to the next US trip, I have no idea when, where, or for how long. Need to hear what the Doctors say, how many days work per week my body can still cope with, and take things from there. I have enough saved that I might be able to do two next year regardless, but if I’m limited to 4 day weeks, that will be the end of that. Though if its one trip per year, I will probably make it longer than a week (flight is major element of cost), but we will see… In theory I have an invite to a stage reading of a Clara Bow show next month in NYC, but unless anyone wishes to donate £1000 (flight and accom) to me, and even then, there is holiday available at work, not going to make it. Shame, as I could use the publicity time for myself, as well as the show! Ah well…

So from the US for the last time, probably…bye for now!

What have I done to deserve this?

Yes, for once of late, the clue to the video really is in the title lol!

No, its not someone taking me out to Valentines Day dinner, or anything like that, before anyone jumps to that conclusion, no one is that crazy! And as is stated, as mind control is purely fiction, I cant make someone do that, ah well…! Would be pretty hard on any guy, or girl anyway, lets face it, given my views on sex, romance and the like, but hey, I can dream, cant I?

But if anyone wants to at least send an e-card, it might be nice. Havent had an actual card this century, though there is someone at work saying he was going to get me one this year, but lets just wait and see, shall we? The late Sara C did send me one once by email, but thats it since then. But no, as I havent got a love, I guess I shouldnt expect one, but…

No, this is a far more entertaining tale than that in all honesty. Over at the MC Garden, we have lots of nice picture threads, on a board called Entrancing Murals. One of those is called the Latex Yumminess thread, and no prizes for working out that it might relate to latex clothing, is there? The thing is, every once in a while, people bemoan tha lack of pictures of members (even though you have to be a member to see in, its still the internet, so…), and of late there have been one or two dares of female members being bought items of latex clothing, if they would get a picture done, and post it. Now, I always suspected I wasnt a main target, I assumed they were trying to tempt the younger members into taking up the offer, and of course they dont. And occasionally they would bemoan the fact that this offer never got taken up.

Anyway, one evening, when I was in my best ‘wind-up bitch’ mode, something I’m sure Brooksie would be proud of, I threw down the gauntlet, and said, fine, get me something suitable for a woman of my age, and I’ll wear it. Lets face it, I could wear a latex catsuit, but at my age, it wouldnt be right. Well, it might be in some eyes, but I wouldnt have thought so. But dress, or skirt, then fine, I’ll do it.

There was a gentle silence, presumably while they hoped someone younger, and prettier might rise to the bait, but they didnt. Then someone who makes me look retiring, Rosie, started wonding them up too. So now, after all this, in the next few weeks, a silver latex skirt will be heading my way, which should be fun. How much it gets worn beyond the pictures, I have no idea, lets just wait and see. But hey, in my collection will be one item of latex, something I never imagined in my wildest dreams.

So I’d like to say a big thank you to one special guy at the Garden, no names here, but if he sees this, he’ll know who I mean. Hey, if you’re lucky, I might even post a picture here, as well as at the Garden! It will be a few weeks though, so you need to be patient for now, but…

Yes, now for the video. Perfect combination for sexual tension, a gay guy, and a lesbian woman. And yes, they are lip synching, but anything more would be hard to find! Just enjoy, without me having to use mind control on you…
