I've got some 'splaining to do!

Wow, I'm really starting November out with a phlllbbbttttt. I have failed to give any sort of update whatsoever on how my first play party on November 1st went, or the munch that was on the following Tuesday, or... anything at all!

For this I must apologize. However, when your mother has a heart attack and has to be flown over from her coastal town to your own town to be hospitalized in their cardiac care unit, things tend to get a little hectic.

Phew. So yeah. My mom had a heart attack the night of my first play party, Saturday November 1st. The day that will live in infamy. And of course it was the one night I don't have my cell phone on me; it was in my purse in the storage closet at the house where the play party was being held. Suddenly my mom's play partner (a man from my local scene) comes rushing in and pulls me aside, and lets me know my mother's had a small heart attack and is being flown to the hospital over here. Uh... yeah, hello there shock, nice to meet you!

All in all she's doing fine though. Her heart's clear, the heart attack didn't damage her heart at all. She had what the doctor called a classic muscle spasm heart attack, which is actually fairly common in women of my mother's age who are emotional (she is) and going through times of stress (she was). I now tease her that she fretted herself into a heart attack - which basically, she did!

But anyway, she got out of the hospital on Tuesday and has been staying in a hotel here so she can be around friends and family. My aunt came up yesterday to see her and have lunch with us. I've been seeing my mom after work every day except today. So all in all... yeah, busy!

Tonight I have set aside, though, to catch myself up on everything. And I do mean everything. So here goes.

The play party! Aside from finding out my mother had had a heart attack - it was amazing, awesome, wonderful in almost every way. It started out with a sub girl and a switch guy being cuffed to a double St. Andrews cross and being Topped by a gorgeous FemDomme, and just progressed from there. Even M, who had only wanted to come and watch this time so as to not overwhelm herself, played! She stripped and was spanked quite thoroughly by the same FemDomme, who topped just about every sub at that party. It was really really incredible to watch. Everyone was commenting on how nice and tight M's ass is. I must concur. ;)

And yes, I did participate myself! I flogged on the sub girl some, which was great - I totally want to do it more thoroughly next time - and engaged in a little needle play... on myself! The organizer of our local munches does needle play, and I had been wanting to try, so I did. They had me strapped onto a gravity board, which they laid back and propped on a stool so I was horitonzal. My wrists were cuffed to the armrests and my ankles were trapped in between the ankle rests and this thing that reminded me of the bars they use to keep kids on roller coasters. The munch organizer - I'll call her Q - then proceeded to make pretty criss-cross patterns on my boobs with 22 and 20g needles. It was utterly delicious. The 20g needles were a little whoaaaa but all in all I was grinning like an idiot the whole time. And shaking like crazy from the adrenaline! It helped to eat and drink some when I was done, though. I still have the loveliest little red dots and fading bruises on my breasts.

Right boob.

Left boob.

And a fairly crappy cell phone shot of the whole package, including my dopey smile!
So yes, all in all, a very fun night. There's another party on the 15th which I will probably attend. More fun for everyone!
And yes, the munch! That was just about the best munch that has happened yet. A new guy showed up who was pretty cool. Just about everyone was in tears laughing at one point. One girl fell out of her chair. The new guy snorted cheesecake up his nose on accident. Our previously shy waitress finally came out of her shell enough to joke around with the rest of us. It was great!
Oh, and I got my hair cut! Pretty short. It went from almost mid-back (you can kinda see the length in my profile picture) to this:

I am absolutely in love with it. It takes me maybe two seconds to mess with it in the morning and I'm good to go. Plus, love showing off the tattoo on the back of my neck. Maybe I'll make that my next HNT!
Oh, and... HELL YEAH OBAMA!!!!!!! I'm sorely disappointed that people are fighting so hard over banning gay marriage, but I know that fight's not going to be easily won. At least we have Obama and a Democratic House and Senate. At least Oregon voted in a new, Democratic senator instead of keeping the incumbent, a disgustingly rich, Republican buddy of Dubya. And at least abortion rights fared pretty well on the ballots.
The future is bright. It can't not be, when such wonderful changes are afoot. Yes, there are still fights to be fought, but nothing worth having was easily won.
Fight on!
