The sky must be falling.

As is being reported on LJs all across my friend's list, the lines at the polls are unbelievably long. I was thwarted in my attempt to vote this morning and still not be late to work - even when leaving a half hour early. I'll go back and vote after work while being thankful for living in New York, which has the latest poll close of all the eastern states (9 PM). Sure, NY will be long decided by then, but I want my number counted.

What is amazing is all of the rabid interest in this election. Election after election I can remember stories about low voter turnout, empty polls, and lack of interest. It's delightful to see this reemergence of interest in our country's leadership. It's actually quite inspiring.

Speaking of things that are shocking, I suppose I should post about this one before anyone else does. Might was well concentrate the shock here.

I am probably well-known by many to be an avid non-practisioner of rope bondage. I do not own a stitch of rope, I usually fuck up square knots, and I am known to grab a pile of rope and do the only thing I can imagine doing with it - hit people with it.

So imagine my shock, not to mention the shock of everyone around me, when I found myself assisting in a rope suspension.

And when I say assisting, I do not mean spotting. I mean hoisting her up, and even tying four finishing knots. And tying them well, I might add.

It probably helped that the bottom in question, a little sick fuck who I have now nicknamed Crackhead, gets off on rope burns. And my pull literally tore off skin on her leg. I have never seen such excitement over a rope burn in my life.

Afterwords I helped untie her. Without any assistance from others.

I feel weird now.

Boymeat does rope?

And thus it begins...

Hm, maybe we should work on that at Delta next year. ;) Or at MAL...

Don't get too excited. I'm still all about the hitting people.

It's not your first rope suspension Sir.
I remember watching you assist in another.
Nov. 4th, 2008 03:17 pm (UTC)
Not in the tying.

Awesome! Rope burns, huh? Wow.

Hey guess what! Remember how nervous I was in your singletail class last year? I did my first public singletail scene (as a top) this weekend--and only my second actual scene with it--and it went well. :) Thank you for the encouragement.

That's awesome!!!! Go you!!!

And so your journey to the Dark Side begins.

Oh, wait... ;)
Nov. 4th, 2008 04:56 pm (UTC)
Ah, don't get too excited. I don't see me become a rope guy anytime soon.

personally, I never got off on rope burns and never met anyone who said they did. This is very interesting to me (newly discovered kinks usually are). Glad you had the experience and I'm happy you're happy with the results.

By NY law, you have to be allowed to leave your job to go vote if you so choose to and not be penalized. It falls into the same category of jury duty. My HR department told me that one.

Oh, I know my employer would have allowed me to be late. However, I was just off for 2 days and really needed to get a jump on the day. If the polls weren't open so late, I would have waited in line. I knew I could accomplish both today without any problems.

"...and I am known to grab a pile of rope and do the only thing I can imagine doing with it - hit people with it."

Amen, brother. Pretty cool that you got to jump right into rope suspension!

I haven't seen you in so long - can't wait to be at an event together again! :)

I hate the fact that I was in DC and didn't see you. We need to fix this!

And boy was I thinking of you during my watersports class...

Rope is delicious and awesome. Think of the joys of combining it with things you already like. Oh, and maybe come out to Chicago, and we'll see if we can drag you a little farther in to rope.
Nov. 4th, 2008 05:28 pm (UTC)
I'm breaking up with you.

Nov. 4th, 2008 05:38 pm (UTC)
Anyone with younger siblings knows that tying people up is just good clean fun.
Nov. 4th, 2008 05:53 pm (UTC)
As the oldest of 4 kids, I absolutely agree!!

And most importantly, you didn't explode! I know, I watched you stay in one piece the WHOLE time.
Nov. 4th, 2008 07:01 pm (UTC)
Go you!

And I voted by mail weeks ago. Which makes me happy because I don't have to stand in line, but now I wish I had that sort of community-building voting experience to do today.

Weird is good. Rock the status quo.

You rawk.

That is how it starts. Just a little over 2 years ago I thought bondage was way too time consuming. Then I saw Lew Rubens having fun doing a suspension. Then I started assisting a friend doing suspension. Then I learned to do suspension on my own, then learned to tie people down. And now just a little over 2 years later I am doing *gasp* decorative bondage. Its still fun to break out the collapsible batons and go after someone though.

I fucking love that little sick fuck who you have now nicknamed Crackhead...
Nov. 4th, 2008 11:07 pm (UTC)
I think I became a fan. In fact, I think I became a fan of the entire crew in which I include you, Crackhead, and the Amnesia one.
