This fascinates me. I wonder if we do that with people too and that's why I have a hard time distinguishing the catches from the throw backs? I'm filling in the blanks with everything I'd rather be hearing them say. Hmmm. Very telling.

I met a woman today in Penticton who is a Domme. We had coffee and had a great time. She has agreed to help "dress" me for a fet night in Kelowna coming up. I'm quite excited. I've never been to a fet night. I never thought I had the coolness factor to carrry it off. But now that I'm forty and have decided on a new look, I think that I can manage it.

No art. None. Haven't so much as taken a picture. I stare at my camera and wince. I feel that it is judging me.
