Saturday morning happiness.

Life isn't perfect, no... it never is. My back still hurts (when I stand for a while, it and my legs hurt - it makes me feel very old), for example.

But... today is not about complaining.

Today is about self-celebration.

Today is about thinking about last night, driving out to an art opening, meeting up with a large group of friends who have welcomed me in to their gatherings over the past year.

Or playing Clown Car in the Pimp Daddy Van, piling in an amazing mass of people from the art show, driving to a loft apartment in the far reaches of the ever-expanding reaches of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, to dive head-first into hedonistic pleasures. My singletail flew, butts were caned. New acquaintances, budding play relationships and friendships, and smiles and laughs.

Today is falling in love once again with my building, and my apartment (who's lease I have just signed for another year). Happiness is ordering a large shipment of lovely smelling oils to burn, and a flannel bedding set online for happy toasty sleepy goodness. Or celebrating that a girl who's back I opened with a singletail last night is currently naked in my apartment, wearing a remote control TENS unit on her thigh, cleaning my bathroom.

I really love my apartment. I love that it is mine. I love that it is my refuge. I love that my art and my pictures reflect me and my personality... they show who I am. I love that people come over to gaze at my bookshelves, which lead into amazing conversations about sex, the scene, and history. I love thinking about the piece of furniture I might one day buy, if I find it, to display my handcuff collection.

I love having my music play in my apartment, filling it with sounds that can reflect my mood, can take me to other moods. I love that I have my music.

I love being able to come home, sit back with a glass of wine, and watch old episodes of Monty Python, thanks to the gracious gift from my gorgeous, amazing, holy shit I can't believe she's mine, slave.

I love that I will have yet another visitor tonight. I love opening the door to my home with friends.

I love that I will be seeing one of my two darling little girls in a few weeks.

I love that more friends from the south are now plotting to come visit me in my apartment.

I want more of you to come visit me in my apartment.

Nothing a good episode of Monty Pyhthon can cure.

It so great to read about your simple pleasures...and that you can be right there...in the moment, not only drink in the wine...but the bounty of your life!

Handcuff Collection
Ikea Hacker has some great ideas for display and storage.

I'm happy to lend my mad design skilz0rrs to such a project! We could take drukwerk with us!

I bet the three of us could come up with something mad cool to look at, that would hold said collection beautifully :)

I'm all for homes being a refuge and reflection!

This is much happier to read.

Now as for visiting....when are you heading south for a long night of playing catch up with your auntie? Don't make me come to NYC now. Besides, not sure if that's even possible right now. (feels the leash tightening --- again)
Nov. 10th, 2007 09:56 pm (UTC)
We definitely need to figure that out. Let's talk soon.
Nov. 10th, 2007 09:51 pm (UTC)
You definitely need Willow and I to visit (with permission of course). We do double massage....
Nov. 12th, 2007 04:54 am (UTC)
true... get permission!!!
Nov. 10th, 2007 11:46 pm (UTC)
There shall definitely be a triple-bean sighting in NYC Thanksgiving weekend. :)

I'm glad you're full of the joy of life tonight. :)

Hello from Las Vegas! The same Rich Little who we watched in the Muppet Show is headlining at the hotel I'm staying at. Perfect, huh?!

Lots of love to you.

You sound great - content and happy and that makes me happy.

Let's make plans soon. Perhaps in a couple of weeks? Or if December is filled with holiday plans and out of towners, we can wait until January. But still, I'd love to see you. And to see your clean apartment. :)
