Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

My head is exploding!

In a good way. I came home from John’s this evening to some lovely surprises.

First, the video that Richard Windsor and I shot is finally up on Spanking Tube. For whatever reason, he had to upload the thing three times before ST put it up! It was worth the wait; he did a great editing job and I’m so pleased with the results. Check it out:

In case you’re wondering about that Ultra-Popular Top business, it’s kind of an inside joke. The Ultra-Popular Top, or the UPT, is an affectionate nickname that several of us have for Rich on FetLife, so we had a bit of tongue-in-cheek fun with it in the video. Considering how many women have been over his lap, I’d say the appellation is fitting, no?

Oh, and that snit he’s referring to, and my comment about “stupid people on FetLife”? I was in a pissy mood one day, about a week before the party, because two men (I don’t know either one of them) had posted two separate comments on Fet that irked me. On one thread, several of us were talking about how much fun it is to be “double-teamed” by two spankers, and one man chimed in with, “It’s not supposed to be fun.” Then, on another thread, someone else posted that pre-spanking negotiations were unnecessary because “a spankee has no real right to say anything about what their punishment should be.” Excuse me??

So, those “stupid people” were two strangers. Not anyone I know (or want to).

Next, I discovered that Lea had posted a wonderful review of my book, and that Cranky Spanker had written not one, but two blog posts about me. And finally, the reviews on Amazon.com are now up to five — thank you, friends! You guys are all so dear and I appreciate you more than I can say.

One question for the Kindle viewers. I know I had issues with the formatting when I converted the Word file to the Kindle file. One friend told me she didn’t see anything weird or glitchy when she read her copy, but someone on Amazon said there were formatting issues. So… did any of you who have ordered the Kindle version see anything off? If so, could you let me know where it is? I know I can edit it, but it’s a matter of figuring out how. Thanks. (Personally, I wish everyone would order a paperback version because of that most excellent cover, but I know I’m behind the times.)

It was a quiet weekend, which was just fine after all the excitement last weekend. We watched a lot of 9/11 remembrance programming, which was sad. Dateline had an hour dedicated to the Flight 93 heroes who stormed the cockpit and prevented the terrorists from crashing the Capitol building. Hearing the wives of some of those men speak made me cry. I don’t like endless morbid rehashing of horrible events as a rule (John watches WWII footage over and over on the History channel, which annoys me to no end), but I do agree that life changed on 9/11, ten years ago. 😦

Anyway… enough of that. Tomorrow, I get to see NG again. Life is good.

  6. AH!! You have a military enthusiast too, eh?? RG LOVES the Military Channel, Military History, the History Channel and History International. Those 4 fucking channels are the reason why we pay so much for our satellite tv service! Those channels are not included in the lesser packages. Even the cheapest package pretty much includes 98% of what is watched in our household! (Mostly kids tv)Does he also have a subscription to Military History magazine?? His passion is the Civil War, but he also loves all the other war's histories.Anyhoo, to Fetlife — you forgot to mention the one dude who said that bottoms needed to be put in their place! 😀 I still say you certainly deserved your first place in line! :)I plan to order your book soon, and can't wait to read it! We have a Kindle, but RG uses it most and I have not warmed up to them yet. I prefer an actual book.sarah

  7. Ronnie — you got both? Wow… thank you! :-)joey — oh, I intend to. Jade — I am looking forward to seeing him. :-)Sarah — hah! No Military History magazine; John is more into Scientific American. But oh my god, that freaking History channel. How many times can you watch footage of WWII and Viet Nam? Thank goodness he just has basic cable.Oh, THAT guy… ugh! Yeah, he hadn't posted yet when I had my little snit. What a prize he was!

  8. Loved the video clip and I thought when you got up from UPT's lap he was going to pull you back down over his knee. Ya fooled me! 🙂 I had a cranky fest on Fetlife yesterday over a compilation of vanilla and spanking related dis-enchantments but I so appreciate your private email perspective. What would be worse punishment for you, if NG used his hardest wooden paddle on you or he made you sit through 6 straight hours of WWII footage?

  9. As for that dickhead whom you made the 1st comment-it took EVERY ounce of self restraint in me NOT to private message him and start my own war of equally uncouth retaliatory comments. But I opted for maturity. Yay me! 🙂

  10. Kelly — wow, some choice! Knowing NG, he'd use the paddle AND make me watch the damn footage at the same time.I know that disenchantment well. It helps to talk about it.
