on the road again

We are safely nestled away in our retreat destination. No one is to know where we are. Jealousy would ensue, for sure.

Last night our evening plans were of a gala evening out, with wonderful hosts and no plans save for basking in the pleasure of the experience. We were successful.

The break thus far has been peaceful and necessary. Today and this evening, brings forth another new adventure.

All three classes will work in conjunction with one another.

Jennifer Skrukwa Erotic Ice & Wax
Play 6:45-8:15 pm

A hands on, fully interactive class. We will have plenty of erotic fun and play with group sex-energy. Everyone attending will only be paired off with the person they came with and for those who came alone, we'll take care of matching you all up. Temperature is probably the most fascinating sensation to incorporate into erotic play. You can use temperature to focus the attention of your partner on erogenous zones all over their body. Your use of temperature can create a sense of well-being or extreme excitement. This workshop will cover how to use temperature and incorporate both hot and cold sensations into your sex play. The tools will include hot wax, ice, and chilled metal items.

There will be a short demonstration followed by an interactive portion in which everyone will get to practice with the sensations taught in the course.

*Highly recommended: wear under clothing that is suitable for lying on the floor with and which will not be damaged if a small amount of wax happens to get on. Or, go naked.

holiday wishes & cool treats

Happy Fourth of July
to all Americans,
and to those especially whom I know and hold dear.

For Americans and Canadians alike, hell for anyone in the World with access to a 7Eleven, listen up....

On 7/11 (July 11th), you can go to any 7/11 across the world and get a FREE slurpee!! Tell your friends, as slurpees always taste better when they are free!

This is the 80th "official" birthday of our nation's modern convenience store known as 7/11.

In the past, the free slurpee has been a 7.11 oz. cup, so don't expect to waltz in and receive a Super Big Gulp full of your favorite slurpee flavor for free. However, multiple visits to 7/11 on July 11th is allowed.


JULY 11th!

down time

Without going in to a long list of details, lets just say that the last few days have had me recharging and completing some long over due tasks. I usually accomplish a lot from my never ending To-Do List when under stress that is out of my control.

Due to a number of circumstances that seemed to be "Acts of God", changes have happened in the last week that have left me both elated and devastated all at once.

In a short bit I hope to be able to share what it is that has kept me so quiet as of late. I have no plans of divulging anything further until all the details are handled though.

Princess Notes: RC drove T to work this morning while I slept on. When he returned he brought with him a jumbo size bottle of extra strength Pamprin AND a [3] box of eight hour heating pads for my bloated, crampy belly. I am adored.
