Shadow Lane 2011, Part 2
Saturday morning, as per usual, I slept in while John headed to the gym. He dragged me out of bed and we showered, dressed and went down to Cafe Siena for lunch. I love that place! They have great breakfast stuff and they’re so accommodating of us all, our big groups and ever-expanding tables.
This time, we were joined by Mir and S, and Mija and Pablo, and had a nice meal with lively discussion and lots of laughs. Later in the afternoon, we went to the Strictly Spanking New York suite party, which was crammed wall to wall with people. They were showing a series of their film shorts and we caught the last few — hilarious! I so want to go to their Boardwalk Badness party next April. I did a couple of quickie scenes there, including with Mir’s S, which was great fun. When the party wound down, John and I went back to our room to relax a bit before preparing for the evening’s activities.
You know, it’s laughable how jittery I am while getting ready, after all these years. Thank goodness for John… My dress tied at both shoulders, and I had to recruit him to tie each side in a neat bow. And of course, he hooked my garters, since with my shaky hands it would have taken all evening. However, he does like to torment me while I try to do my hair and makeup — stands next to me and preens/makes faces in the mirror. I finally had to say, “Honey, I see you. Yes, you look great. I love you. Now will you please get the hell out of here!” LOL
The ballroom buffet/dance was a blast! Everyone looked smashing, as usual — lots of suits on the men and beautiful dresses on the women. Got a few pictures — Here I am with the incomparable Sarah Gregory. How about her dress, huh? Wooo hooooo!
You know what? I think I will finish up Saturday night in Part 3. I had two very special and intense scenes and I don’t want to just tack them onto the end of this; they deserve their own portion.
