1st post of the year.

Is it strange that I feel guilty that I haven't posted until 8 days into the new year? It's almost like I've disappointed the mind-bogglingly large number of people who read me.

So, I suppose a life update is in order. The holiday break was amazing, even with all of its challenges. kathryntact and I spent a blissful almost 2 weeks together, and it felt really nice to have the time to be the couple we have become. From being lazy and lounging in each others arms all day on the couch watching TV and movies together, to touring Dyker Heights in Brooklyn to look at all the crazy Christmas lights, to spending quality time with friends over chow and chemistry sets. It was wonderful.

My mother is alive and well, happily ensconced once again at home. We were able to serve as her chariot ride home on the Saturday after New Years, and she was thrilled to be home. Thank you all for your messages of concern.

Life is plugging away now, setting up travel plans to attend Arisia (though I probably won't be seen too much at the event proper), South Plains Leatherfest, Dark Odyssey: Winter Fire, IMsL, and Frolicon off in the distance.

Also, there is one post I like to remind people about every now and then. Many years back I did a meme where people recalled how and when they met me. I'd love to see more people answer it - I know there are a lot of you reading me. Even those of you who are really close to me - jog your memory and write something down! It's fun to go back into memory lane. The post can be found here.

I first met you at Capex when a certain other red head was complaining about your love of muppets and I just knew I had to get to know you better. *grins* I would still love to see a pic of the poster framed and hung.

Thank you, but post this in the original meme post! That way it's all in one place. I promise I will take a pic and send it to you... it's up on my wall, and I love pointing it out to all my guests.

MAL last year - first heard about you when they announced you at the IML press conference. Met you afterwards as we shared an elevator. Got to know you a little better when I was your "litmus test" for the caning class you taught at Tribal Fire.

I'm really happy we got to meet in 2008. I think you're a great guy, and I love reading about your days.

Can you post this in the original meme post here: http://boymeat.livejournal.com/78565.html

I want to keep it all in one place. Makes it easier to reminisce.

Thanks - it was nice to meet you as well...someone else my age who plays at the level I do. Then again, living in Kansas City is a bit of a sheltered experience.

Hopefully our paths will cross again - and I'm sure they will. Lots of shit on my end to figure out until then.

TES 30.
Where you told me my collar did not protect me from you.
And I told you it would be a cold day in hell before I would let you touch me.

It all went downhill from there. LOL
