Our Trip!

October 30th, 2007 No comments

Ok so I lied. Well, I wrote exactly what Master said to write so… Master lied? In all actuality, Master and I had no real idea of just how little time we’d have once our park hopping got into full swing. I haven’t been to Disney since I was five and Master’s never been so it was impossible for us to gage how little time we’d be spending in the room outside of sleep and showers. The warnings from my parents did little to convince us. We had to learn for ourselves.

The flight was mostly uneventful – a little bumpy at most – and I found myself pretending the bumps were just like bumps on the road, only caused by clouds, to ease my mind and any anxiety I was feeling went right out the window. We were about twelve minutes early touching down on the first flight and about five minutes late touching down on the second. Disney has this package called the Magical Expressway which is a fleet of tour buses that pick up customers who are staying in Disney resorts from the airport in Orlando and carries them and their carry-on luggage to the resort they’re staying in. They play an en route video that describes a little of what you’re getting into. Our driver gave probably the best piece of advice I’ve heard. He said, Β“It’s hot out there so drink plenty of water and wear sunscreen. And parents, don’t try to keep up with your kids because you can’t. Pace yourself or you’ll find you need a vacation after your vacation.Β”

We got to the hotel around 2:30 – 3:00 and our luggage hadn’t made it yet. We expected it to run a little late so we got cleaned up a bit and headed into Downtown Disney – where all the shopping is! And boy was it hot! Dad took us on a boat ride on a pontoon boat. That was nice. We had dinner at the cafeteria in the hotel and then settled ourselves into a couple of beach chairs with a couple of drinks. We were there for eight days and only had a six day park hopper pass so the first and last days had to be spent outside of the parks.

The coolest thing about Downtown Disney had to be the LEGO creations. There was a giant T-Rex, the Loch Ness Monster, a family, a shark and some fish all built out of LEGOs. Rather cool. And they had a bunch of tables with LEGOs in the pockets and a large playing space for kids to go try to create things.

On Saturday we went to MGM. That’s Dad’s favorite park and it’s home to Dad’s favorite restaurant so we went there first since Dad foots the bill. We went on the Back Lot Tour and watched a car stunt show and the Indiana Jones stunt show. They were both really cute. Dad and I got on the Tower of Terror and that was awesome! After the Back Lot Tour we started adding to our shot glass collection. We ended up bringing home more shooters than shot glasses but nine times out of ten the shooters were better looking. Unfortunately, I forgot to grab my Tinker Bell shot glass. Next time, I suppose.

Harddrive == Dead

October 29th, 2007 No comments

It’s always fun to come home to problems. I turned my computer on and began a blog telling you about our trip, got up to go to the bathroom and heard “Uh… your computer just rebooted itself. Does it usually do that?” As I’m getting myself together and getting out of the bathroom, He says “Uh oh… it’s not booting.”

The harddrive is dead. And I’m FREAKING. My book’s on there. All my photos. My poetry. Everything. With as many times as I’ve lost all of my writing throughout the course of my life, I’m | | this close to giving up. Master’s trying to recover at least some of what’s on my computer. It’s not going well. So far I’ve managed not to completely freak out. It’s probably not far down the road though.

So the entry about our trip is going to wait, I guess. At least until tomorrow. Which sucks, cause I had an article of relevance I wanted to put up tomorrow. Ah well. We’re home, in any case πŸ™‚ Miss us?

Gagged and Beaten

October 13th, 2007 No comments

Yesterday was decidedly not good. My shoulders, back and ass all agree. Being mouthy is a punishable offense and if I’m never punished again it’ll be too soon. I could give you a million excuses: depression, anxiety, not getting my way (yes, I know everything wrong with that statement), etc. But what it comes down to, really, is I made absolutely no effort whatsoever to hold my tongue.

He hung me up, gagged me and beat me. How long’s it been since I’ve had to say that? Even one of my favorite floggers lost cool points. If they’re yummy enough to make me all squishy, they should absolutely not be capable of the kind of pain I felt yesterday! I’ll never look at it quite the same as I did before.

I’m not sure what broke the camel’s back. I’d be lying if I said I knew. But when Master suggested putting my head through the truck’s window (something He has yet to do and I doubt He ever would – car windows cost too much :P) as a viable option to get my attention, I realized I was a little out of hand. However, I’m not sure I stopped there. Or I did, but I must’ve started again as soon as we got out of the truck. Because He seemed to just get more and more angry the more I spoke to Him.

Actually, now that I think about it, I think the last straw was when I threw paper at Him. Paper on which was written a list of things I need for the trip to Florida. I can explain my reason but there is no excuse for that no matter how frustrated I was. The anger, anxiety and depression I was feeling had nothing to do with Him and I shouldn’t have aimed it at Him.

Travel

October 11th, 2007 No comments

Things here are a little bit crazy (aren’t they always?) I have five work days until we’re off to Florida for eight days. Last night we went to Wal-Mart and raided the toiletries aisle to find shampoo, toothpaste, soap, etc. in smaller than three ounce bottles for our carryon bags just in case after five hours on the plane we want to take a shower. We have to go clothes shopping, we need one-quart Ziplock bags, and I am so friggin nervous.

 

I have to call the airline later and find out if I’ll be able to wear my collar and if not if I can carry it in my checked bags. Master’s ordered me to make sure His belt gets packed even though it doesn’t fit Him. I have a checklist ready to go for when we’re ready to go.

 

Master’s decided He’s buying me skirts and/or dresses when we go clothes shopping. Not necessarily for the Florida trip but definitely for home. I hate dresses and skirts. He says I should be easily accessible, feminine and desirable at all times. (Damn you, kaya, this is all your fault :P)

 

All I can think about is the trip. I’m so nervous. I’ll get over it, I suppose.

 

Still no word as to what I’ll be doing about ID while we’re gone. I suppose I should actually ask Him instead of expecting Him to spontaneously answer me from reading a blog entry.

 

And my CSS is broken. Everything is breaking out of frames, changing sizes, etc. Help me! It takes FOREVER for a dinky little page to come up and I can’t type as slow as the editor on ID and deviantArt are going. It’s seriously pissing me off.

Babble

October 9th, 2007 No comments

Before I started reading other blogs, I wrote my own without worrying about who was talking about what or who thought what or whose feelings I might hurt. Before I started reading other blogs, I didn’t care who was reading me or who was commenting. It didn’t matter that I wasn’t part of the cool kids’ club because I wasn’t on LJ or Blogger or Word Press. I wasn’t worried about all the bells and whistles that the big sites have. Who cares, really, about cuts and friend lists and blog rolls?

Except, now I do. Now the popularity of the site has become a major thing for me. I look at the people I read and all the comments they get and such and I’m feeling incredibly inadequate. I want to be part of the cool kids’ club!

I’m trying to figure out OpenID. It’s not infallible, but it looks like the easiest way to stop having to comment anonymously. I’m not sure what good that will do as it doesn’t seem to link back to our site. But at least you’ll know who I am!!

Master’s hit a sort of roadblock with the new version of the site. With our vacation coming up and His job lately, He’s got almost no time to work on it. But, basically, what it comes down to is He can’t decide on the new layout. Most of the time, I love His perfectionist attitude, but not having RSS is driving me insane. ::laughs::

Anyway, looking at this I can’t figure out whether this is a bad thing or not. My blog was always supposed to be a place for people to come to see the reality of a 24/7 Master/slave relationship. Or, our reality anyway. For people to see that things aren’t always perfect and we both screw up from time to time. It was originally supposed to be completely one-sided (with occasional interjections of Master’s opinions from either myself or from Him) and He decided He wanted a place for Him to do it Himself (hence the rarely used section He has).

Happy Birthday!

October 8th, 2007 No comments

You’ve shared five of them with me. The first one sort of sucked and for that I am eternally apologetic. But I love You and I’m so very glad that you didn’t let that set the tone for the rest of them. So happy birthday, my Love! May your work day suck less than it usually does :kiss:
