Word of the Weekend: fellagirly (scroll down), used by [livejournal.com profile] vree to describe me. Also my mis-remembering it as "femmyboy" enticed a weird Jeeves and Wooster flashback in my head ("Sit upon my knee, femmyboy, you were only three, femmyboy...")

Maybe you had to be in my skull that day :P

It has been a wonderful but very overclocked weekend, starting with [livejournal.com profile] shemhazai landing in town and a trip down to the women's party, with which I was much impressed. Fantastic space with lots of room and the cleanest, most well-appointed bathrooms I've ever seen in a nightclub. I got to try a St. Andrew's cross!

The fellowship, play, conversation, and eye candy were most pleasing. About 30 women showed up, which sounds small but I think it's the most people I've seen at a party of this type before. I felt very comfortable, because I knew I was among friends :)

Friday was a very late night, but for some reason I was up at 10 the next morning, and Shem and I meandered down to meet up with [livejournal.com profile] vree at the leather vending for the event over the weekend. Many beautiful, twitch-inducing and wonderfully leather scented items were on hand, but I was fiscally good, and only got the aforementioned pair of socks.

Much of the rest of the day was spent lunching and window shopping and going to a birthday party briefly where we met many interesting people, including [livejournal.com profile] margoeve and [livejournal.com profile] elkor. Much good conversation followed, though by this time I was so deeply bone tired that even the bowl of coffee I slurped up
didn't help me keep up so well. Thought provoking statements and observations were made that I may write more on later after I've had some groking time. I hope to meet these folks more in the future when I'm more awake/it is quieter!

Today was a much lower key day - Shem and I went out to lunch with C., G., and [livejournal.com profile] orangesophie and had much more conversation.

Now chilling at home, doing administrativia and thinking about curling up with Shem for a movie and peanut butter sandwich (at this moment, peanut butter is the finest food under heaven).

Messing with this stuff has highlighted the possible mummification/binding possibilities :P It's not my particular cup of tea to wrap or be wrapped, but there it is.

This Friday I'm going to go to a women's party at this venue affiliated with this event (neither site worksafe). It's my first time to this club for a (semi?) public event but strangely I am not nervous - I know I'll be in good company.

I'm planning on carpooling as I'm nervous about the possiblity of getting lost because the club isn't in the greatest neighborhood.

This is the first time I've been to a club in... I dunno, a couple of years (do the nearly empty goth nights in Philly a couple of years back count?) so I suppose I should think of something "special" to wear. I'm thinking Farscape duster and New Rocks, if the weather permits.

Anyone else going to be there?

Whipping therapy cures depression and suicide crises - don't know how reliable a source Pravda is but with a prescription of "30 sessions of 60 whips on the buttocks", I'm willing to be hopeful :)

Still catching up with LJ and email; will post/comment something of substance once both are under control.

However, I do feel compelled to share:

Latin 1086 – 1733: a practical online tutorial for beginners - will be all over this once I untangle English Handwriting 1500-1700: An Online Course to my satisfaction!

41st International Congress on Medieval Studies Schedule - page links to a PDF for each day of the Congress. I perused around 40 topic headings over lunch.. and realized that it only described the first session of the first day (!). Official decision of "going or not" to be decided after I do my taxes. If I can't, well, the Center for Renaissance and Baroque Studies Attending to Early Modern Women conference is in my backyard this fall :P

Managing your personal incompetent design: 18 body hacks. The one with the sinuses really seems to work!

Last but not least, School Dinners Cabaret Bar and Restaurant, London - I wouldn't have believed it had Shem not pointed me towards the site! A quick look through sez it's probably safe for work unless someone is hanging over your shoulder. "Eaten School Boys" and cruel headmasters/mistresses don't move my personal furniture, but I'd love to sit on the sidelines for a snicker :P

Just finishing up a busy weekend here. I feel kind of burnt out on several levels, but an early night should help.

Saturday: lots I wanted to do so got up (relatively) early.

first stop )

clothing score )

shiny things )

Batman Begins - no spoilers )

Sunday rapier )

Got kind of long winded there - not sure why. I AM tired.

Found over at [livejournal.com profile] wendyzski's journal: Yes, ladies and gentlemen, there are such things as leather morris dancers!

There is nothing I can possibly add except... wow... I would never have thought of that! And maybe that I'm wondering whether I should ever have thought of that...

After a couple of days of sinus pain that made my teeth want to fall out and other indicative yuck that I won't detail here, I figured I should probably see a professional :P Sure enough, I have a sinus infection. I've been given a course of anti-biotic horse pills to get rid of this thing! Apart from the pain and drain, I'm mostly recovered.

Also got confirmation that my registration for the relational database class went through (yay!) so I'm looking at getting the required reading ASAP so I can be prepared. Urgh, argh - I didn't expect the book to be quite that expensive ($115!), though considering that computer/technical books often come with CDROMs and other "add-ons" I suppose I shouldn't be that surprised. I am looking for it used, of course!

Miscellanea: the Serenity trailer is out. Again, I exhort you - if you missed Firefly, don't miss this. Much good storytelling and ripping one-liners!

While at the grocery to pick up my horse pills, I went through the candy section looking for the elusive dark chocolate M&Ms, to no avail. Here's hoping they're only temporarily sold out!

Discussion elsewhere reminded me of Slavercise. I got one of the exercise videos a couple of years ago as a gag gift (or, I think it was a joke ;) ) and decided to check it out again. Domina in leather puts men through their paces and in their places - I think it's intended for audiences into humiliation, but while it doesn't necessarily trip my trigger, the creators are in earnest! Salon review of one of the in-house training sessions (free pass and all that).

Wish I could make this a little more uplifting and exciting than it is, but it's hard to fake enthusiasm when your nose is leaking down your throat :/

Held our 3rd (? maybe 4th?) meeting and had the best turnout yet :) It was generally agreed that for many an "assigned" book didn't really fit with their schedules/interests, so we agreed to read through an article that one of the members volunteered and continue to read on our own and compare notes next time. We may even do some out-loud readings, if folks are game.

I've made up a tentative list of recommended titles; I've not read them all but if you're interested in books pivoting roughly around the topic of f/f bdsm, email me offline and I'll send it on.

Had far too much coffee; was up very late last night and up comparatively early this morning (damned daylight savings!). I need - NEED - to get an early night tonight.

Skin Two Rubber Ball.... in Australia - much too far away for me!

Making Latex Clothes - with this book and this link I'm learning about the nuances of working with rubber - it will be a long while before I make anything substantial, but I may get some washing gloves and rubber cement just to get used to working with the material. Other work: check out LatexDesigner.com for beautifully delicate rubber roses and [livejournal.com profile] imp_of_satan for rubbery photography (possibly NSFW).

Keeping with the rubber theme: Boing Boing ran a story on Making your own WWII era "victory espadrilles" but as the link to instructions doesn't work, I'm going to focus on the other link regarding making sandals out of old tires. Interesting technique, but a bit too "birkenstocky" for me - got all these lovely treads, make BOOTS! And if your feet sweat, well, that's what socks (and winter!) are for, aren't they? :P
