Big Bang, big backache
Unless you’ve been completely off all social media for the past several hours, you’ve no doubt heard there was an OTK spanking on CBS’s “The Big Bang Theory” last night.
I won’t drive the details into the ground, as it’s already been discussed on FetLife and Twitter, and handled beautifully on several blogs, including Spanked, Not Silenced and The Spanking Blog. The latter even transcribed all the dialogue during the scene. What I want to add is how much I @#$%ing LOVED this scene!
For those who know me, you know I’m extremely picky about mainstream spanking scenes, and most of the TV scenes that others go ga-ga over make me cringe. I hated the “Californication” spanking scenes, for example. And I’m probably the only person in the scene who found fault with the OTK spanking scene on “Weeds.” (Come on! He flapped his arm up and down like a demented marionette, and hit the same spot over and over.) And don’t get me started on that ridiculous hairbrushing scene from “Ally McBeal.”
You probably do need to be a fan of BBT to fully appreciate last night’s scene, because it played so perfectly into the characters of Sheldon and Amy. I confess, I am a BBT nut. I love the quirky characters, the writing, the sheer brilliance and originality. I am such a BBT nerd, I actually entered an online contest yesterday, writing a second verse to “Soft Kitty.” (Fans of the show will know what I’m talking about.) So this scene was simply a bit of icing on a favorite cake.
However, I think even those who aren’t familiar with the show can enjoy the scene, because they handled it so deliciously. Whoever wrote that has to be a spanko, or at least be familiar with spankos. And Mayim Bialik, who plays Amy, nailed the reactions and facial expressions perfectly.
Find it and check it out, if you missed it! The title of the episode is “The Fish Guts Displacement” (don’t ask; it has to do with another subplot, which was also hilarious).
EDIT: Kaelah found a wonderful comprehensive clip of the scene and posted it on her blog — go watch it here.
In other news… I seem to have sprained/strained my lower back somehow. I’m not unfamiliar with back pain, having been diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 12. I have this one weak spot on the lower left side, and whenever I have a “back attack,” that’s where the pain goes. It’s been years since I’ve had one, and I always forget just how freaking uncomfortable it is.
I don’t like this. It’s really putting a crimp in my festive holiday attitude. (yes, the sarcasm is dripping) I’m doing everything I know to do — stretching, icing, Advil, light exercise. I did a modified workout Wednesday and last night, because one of the worst things you can do for back pain is stop activity and let everything stiffen up. But after all is said and done, all I can do is wait it out and hope it feels better soon.
Two things of note: 1. I’m grateful this isn’t happening anywhere near the time of a spanking party, and 2. This better damn well be better by Monday. I need my Mr. D fix.
I’ve been reading on FetLife and blogs and so forth about all these spanko gatherings, large and small, and looking at endless quantities of photos, and I admit, I’m feeling grumpy and jealous. I still wonder how people can afford to travel as much as they do, and I so envy all the camaraderie and sharing and socializing. And even I can see the irony in that — since when am I into socializing?? But yeah, when it’s spanko socializing, it’s different. I certainly don’t begrudge my friends their fun. I just wish I could be in on it more often than once or twice a year.
So while others have their wonderful adventures, Mr. D’s Wild Ride is my weekly adventure. And I crave it, and him, like crazy. So this damned back of mine better cooperate.
Have a great weekend, y’all.
