I’ve started writing this update a couple of times, and I swear my emotions are living right on the surface right now. I don’t know why they insist on sitting there, but there they are. Everything to do with what is going on here with the bushfires makes me cry.
The bad makes me cry because it’s horrific and frightening and rage-making and awful.
The good makes me cry because it’s the best of people, of human kindness, of beauty, of hope, of community.
My third Masocast interview, ‘Ferns is back’, is live (the first interview from 2012 is here and the second from 2014 is here)!!
I had so much fun and a lot of laughs in this long chat with the lovely [unspeakable]Axe. We covered a wide and rambling set of topics related to BDSM from vanilla dating to how I should just go to New York to find a submissive :).
I just wanna say ‘fuck you!’
Oh shit no. Oh can you imagine? Nooooo
I like to think it’s because I’m fabulous, but it’s really
I had five social events and numerous phone calls in the week around my birthday. FIVE!
It is amazing to me that people want to spend time with me (I am a bad friend/daughter/sister etc, for the most part), and I am grateful for their perseverance, as much as I find the socialising exhausting.
I could pretend that the over-peopling is the reason I’ve kind of shut down, because I have shut down. But it’s not that. That doesn’t help of course, but it’s not the cause.
I’m back from my overseas trip, hello all :). Ooh look, obligatory holiday snap.
My beloved laptop, George, gave his life in my service, suddenly having a heart attack while we were away. I took him to the PC hospital yesterday, and it seems there was no hope for him. So I am George-less at the moment :(. His hard disk was not damaged, plus I have backups, so I’m happy about that.
As a result, though, I’m resentfully tapping this out on my phone (I hate typing on my phone so much!).
