They Love Me

Apparently, I am really fucking amazingly good at what I do according to the massive numbers of people who told me so following my classes and stage show last night. Here are but a few of the things I've heard said ....

  • Incredibly hot topics.
  • Abundantly knowledgeable.
  • Refreshing teaching style.
  • Joyful as a teacher.
  • Energetic.
  • Inspiring woman.
  • Enthusiastic subject matter,
  • Inspirational as a package.

This news doesn't come as a surprise to me, it's more that I am pleased that Regina feels the way about me as all the other cities do.

I'm feeling on top of my game and very blessed this morning. Years of honing my skills has paid of.

Taboo has offered me something very very special and I have said YES. Who could say no to be honored? No details to share yet, but when the time comes, you'll be proud of me too. I'm already patting myself on the back over the news.

I've already done some shopping at the show and have two beautiful new corsets and matching thongs to bring home. And now before the show opens this afternoon I am heading to some local stores to do a little more browsing around to see if I can find anything else out of the ordinary that piques my interest.

Regina Sexuality Classes

I am settled safely in Regina after an uneventful flight here early this morning. My bags are unpacked and the weather is very Spring like, thankfully.

I need to be at Taboo shortly, because I have a pre-booked media interview shortly and then Day 1 of 3 days worth of classes to teach.

Further, I am on main stage this evening and need to go check it out as I've never seen the stage here before.

It's going to be fun to meet a whole new audience, I'm eager to see how they respond to my style of teaching and presentation.

Wish me luck.

A Change of Pace

We had dinner tonight with a lovely couple we met a few years back in the local scene. They are life time Lounge members and good friends too.

It's always nice when the four of us get together outside of events and have a chance to talk with a party going on around us.

We did however need to take the baby with us, and for some reason he chose this evening to be a handful. So not like him. Perhaps he knows that tomorrow I"m leaving for a few days and acting up was his way of getting more time with me.

Not that it mattered though, dinner was absolutely delicious and we were happy to have an excuse to get dressed up and go out for a shared meal with our pals.

Now I need to finish packing for my flight early tomorrow morning to Regina.

Woman Bound For Dessert

Not a lot of time on my hands these days between looking after a fast moving almost five month old and readying for my work trip to Saskatchewan this weekend.

Jason took me to the Army and Navy Shoe Sale today, you know the one, the big annual shoe extravaganza they host that even the evening news covers. Well not only did he drive me all the way downtown, but he also bought me every pair of shoes that I wanted. I was a wee bit greedy and gleeful, and who wouldn't be with hot sexy new shoes. It could be said that Jason is my "Shoegar Daddy".

I downloaded from my iPhone a photo taken at last weeks Deviant Dining of our human dessert platter, and the lovely woman who was the center piece consented to my posting it here.

Busy Woman

I have a fair bit to accomplish today so this post is going to be rather short.

This morning I awoke to a media request for an interview and currently I am awaiting a call from them to discuss the details.

As I leave later this week for Taboo Regina, I need to get my teaching bag and my belongings all packed up. Being so far from home means I have to remember to include everything as I won't be coming home each night. I'll be missing the baby and my family but the break from the routine of new motherhood will be a nice diversion.

I was pleasantly surprised this morning to read a most wonderful review of one couples experience at last weeks Deviant Dining. Wait till they learn of our plans for next months dinner, it is something else rather titillating that I'm confident will draw a great crowd.

Last night we brought this home for the baby, a splurge for the little guy and one that I know is going to make him so happy this summer. Assembly was a breeze too.

Growing Up Sheltered & Hurt

When I look back on my life as a young person (childhood through adolescence) I am amazed and saddened at how little exposure I was given to anything empowering that would have shown me the potential for me to be able to grow into the adult that I so wanted to become.

My parents did a piss poor job exposing me to new ideas & concepts, positive self thinking, dream realization and role models.

I shaped my own life and embarked on my own journey of discovery rather young. I was about 13 when I started branching out away from my family and witnessing the world through new lenses.

My teenage years were turbulent but I owned this period of time in my life. I wanted an adventure and I set about having one. Variety was the flavor of the day and each day I sampled something different voraciously. I was deeply hurt by the sheltering existence my parents had blanketed me under and wanted to brush these memories away in favor of newer better ones.

I was inquisitive, positive and believing in myself even though my mother was so hateful towards me. My father was deeply inappropriate and had poor boundary setting skills. Neither of my parents was very responsible with their child rearing and as such my brother and I payed the price for their ignorance.

My mother was by far the single most damaging person to my young self. She treated me in ways my children will never experience thankfully. My mother was cruel and unhappy and she lashed out at me, her eldest. My mother hurt me without mercy emotionally and physically. Due to her actions towards me I vowed from a young age to never ever be anything like her and to rise above that type of behavior to be happier, open-minded and more self aware. I knew my children would know unconditional love, acceptance and live without shame, and they do.

My mother set about to damn anything I ever believed in, longed for or cherished. My father invested in nothing and it showed in everything he was involved with.

Today in my adult life, I am without doubt fairly close to being what I had hoped to become while I was dreaming as a youngster. Seems odd perhaps to say this given that I deal today in sexuality and adult oriented business, but it is true. I wanted to be progressive, sex positive, tolerant and adventurous and I have accomplished this all.

Despite hurdles that seemed insurmountable at the time, and years of cautiously making my way, I have arrived happy to a most rewarding place in life.

My children will have every opportunity to open their wings and fly in their own direction of choice with me fully supporting them.

The Men In My Life

Today I wanted nothing more than to take it easy. We have hosted really big and well attended events for the past three nights and it has just wiped me out, I am drained.

Imagine my delight to be able to capture this moment of play between my two most favorite men in the whole wide world.
