IML 2008 - The brief post.

This is a small post that will precede several longer posts.

Had an amazing time at IML 30, or as the emcee rebranded it, IML Triple X. I saw a lot of people, played with a bunch of people, bought a lot of things, and worked diligently as one of the two Tallymasters for the contest.

Some of the highlights included:

  • Doing IML with my sis, lolitasir, once again. Last year was just not the same without her.
  • Special time spent with my Playmate, bostontim. From walking through the vendor mart hand in hand or arm in arm, to our light and fun scene at the Bootblack Party, to our incredible scene at the Chicago Hellfire clubhouse... all natural and wonderful. He made up custom dog tags for the both of us. Our necklaces each have two tags. Mine says "Boymeat" and "Tim's Playmate." His says "Tim" and "Boymeat's Playmate." When he gave me mine to wear, we both teared up a little. And lolitasir got to be the witness.
  • Texting kinkmogul on Saturday while in the vendor mart, marking our one year anniversary of the day I collared the best slave in the world.
  • Special time with lzbnangel.
  • My scene with qnetter. We have a standing date for whenever we are in the same city at the same time. We weren't sure at the beginning where the scene would go, seeing as our usual is a blood filled regalia of singletails. Ten minutes into the scene, we both were wondering who we were kidding. Blood yum blood yum. 
  • Meeting pbxlthrman. I think I left an impression.
  • Meeting Wolf Freed, my fellow Tallymaster. We're gonna set a new precedent of Tallymasters playing together.
  • Meeting some of the amazing judges, especially Derek Cohen and Vick Germany. Just two amazingly nice people with incredible successes under their belts.
  • Time spent with judges I already knew, such as Ian Turner, boy Phil, and especially thornyc. Being able to spend time with Thor at IML was such a treat, as was the knowledge that we were working on something together. It was good to have a local friend there on staff with me.
  • Time spent with friends on the IML Executive Staff, like Bill S. and Jon K. I cherish any moments I can spend with either of these two men.
  • Hanging with my buddies from the New York boys of Leather and The Leatherman, as we worked together to cobble my final outfit for the contest on Sunday night. 
This list could go on and on. And it will, I'm sure. But now I need to start putting together the larger posts about the weekend. Expect deep thoughts in this space.

And finally, here are two photos of me from the weekend.  The first is  Wolf and I being introduced on stage during opening ceremonies on Thursday night. The second is Wolf and I at the tally table before the contest began on Sunday.

I just have to say, I LOVED that moment when you hit Tim so hard he pounded the table with his fist.... then looked at me and smiled hello as if nothing had happened.

I do love you both.

That was a Golden Moment in SM, surely.

Especially given that we were playing on the red sox/yankee rivalry! :)

Amazing year yet again!
So glad to hear. :-)
IML always does wonders for your spirits and just in time before the June rush!

Your looking good too. :-)

yummy. I like that suspender loop thing you're wearing. And those boots. Oh, those boots.

Wait until you see pictures of the rest of my outfits. And when I describe to you the two new pairs of custom boots I ordered. And see what I bought with you in mind. And...

Your let is looking awfully gaunt.

It may be time to throw it down ...

May. 27th, 2008 07:47 pm (UTC)
I'm so slapping you with it.

Glad to hear about IML, wish i could have been there. Maybe next year.

You are so hot, by the way. Just had to say it.

Wow. I'm glad you had a good time. I'm going to try to be there next year. I'm just hoping for more pictures of you Mr. Boymeat.

What did you do....
to my cubby? (That would be pbxlthrman to you.)

And I'm happy you posted pics. You are just too cute - and evil. Seeing pictures of you always puts a smile on my face.

You are one of my favorite people in the whole world, and I've been thinking about why and maybe I've got some of the reasons - besides the great chemistry we have when we're together - I can just love you for who you are and not expect anything from you (though I do often end up loving what I get). I don't have to pretend to be anything other than what I am in the moment, and go with what I feel without being self-conscious about what you'll think of me. You are one of the only people in my life with whom it really is what it is in the now and the future doesn't matter. You're pretty darn special and I'm so glad you're part of my universe.
