What I did over the weekend.

My life is just my life, I do things which I think will be fun, interesting, were I might learn new things and have new experiences. There are times which while pottering away with my life I forget how ‘odd’ it might seem to other people until someone asks me what did I do over the weekend and I tell them.

I just recount to them what I did the same way usually have recounted to me what they got up to over the weekend. I am a pretty out person about most of my ‘oddness’ and most people who know me know this, but every now and then when I do share what I did over the weekend I get a range of responses which make me stop and think.

I don’t know maybe I am just to comfortable in my life and accept that my hobbies and interests are not mainstream and for me spending the weekend arranged around various soccer games would be a very odd way to spent the weekend.

This weekend I went to a special showing of Immodesty’s film ‘Burlesque Undressed’

The Friday evening screening arranged by the The Burlesque & Cabaret Social Club, who as well as having a facebook page there is a Burlesque & Cabaret forum on boards.ie

Then on the Saturday I attended two workshops which had been put on for the BDSM community in Ireland they were
presented by the wonderful Coral Mallow who was funny, informative, engaging and well versed in the topics where were, Body to Body impact play ( all the different ways to use your body in many ways on a partner) and Dominance (a guide for everyone on presence, energy, voice, stance and skills).
The workshops were well attended with about 30 people sitting about in a hotel function room in the middle of the afternoon, listening, laughing and discussing.

I had fun, it was intresting, I did learn new things and was happy in the company of other people who talk about kink and sex in some of the same open ways as I do.
Maybe having been in such open company over the weekend has meant that I wasn’t as careful about how I spoke about what I did at the weekend, but it sure wasn’t anything wrong or illegal or unexpected to anyone who knows me; but as I forget they don’t live in my world maybe they forget what mine is like.
