Playing in New York

  • Posted on November 2, 2014 at 7:32 PM

So I got to spend just short (one day) of two whole weeks in New York.  The weather cooperated, we did lots of things like mini golf (I beat G.!) and go karts (he didn’t lap me!  Yay me!), saw a couple movies, Guardians of the Galaxy and Fury, both of which are good movies, we went to a cider mill to get apples and cider (after we figured out where the hell it was LOL),

 

That, I will point out, was due to the address we initially used being flat wrong.  We were going to drive there from a place I knew how to get to, so it wasn’t until we got there and I tried plugging the address we had into the GPS that I saw there was a problem.  The next try had the GPS still not finding the address, so we called and they: 1) confirmed that they have trouble feeding their address into GPS devices too  and 2) Gave us enough info that we were able to get there.

AND we went upstate to  the Doctor Who themed restaurant, The Pandorica.  G. doesn’t know much from Doctor Who, but he was willing to drive up there so that I could go.  It was great, the people who work there are total Doctor Who freaks too, and they let you pick which episode of the show you want to watch.

The only fly in the ointment was, literally, a fly.  I find the presence flies intolerable in general, so it would have been bad enough if I had to shoo it away every 5 or 10 minutes, but this one would not take the hint and never really left our vicinity.  Had it not been for that constant distraction, lunch would have been great.  Our waitress, Victoria, was particularly personable and, as you can imagine, was a true Dr. Who fan.

 

You end up getting into discussions with them about the show, and also with other customers.  There are pics on my Twitter for those of you who are also Doctor Who freaks.  We also got to the city on the second weekend, and we walked way too much there.

 

It wasn’t that much walking in NYC terms.  Just up ~ 8 streets from Penn to 42nd Street then over to about Madison, stopping at the NY public library (the one with the Lions out front).  Then down to34 street again and back to Penn.  Jen is just not used to walking for any kind of distance.

I have also been brought into the gaming world.  I have a high elf character that G. built for me!  He spent the week before I got there doing it, (which was so much work!) and surprised me with it when I got there.

When I was in College, I got involved in the then-brand-new hobby of fantasy role playing.  Jen never had that experience, so I thought I would give her an opportunity to try.  The system we were using, was created as a direct response to many of the flaws (and there were many) in the first version of D&D.  Specifically, one of the biggest things the authors objected to the fact that the characters don’t seem to have any life outside of ransacking dungeons put there for that purpose by the Dungeon Master who is running that particular game.  As a response, they created an extensive and rather complex system for writing up what a character has done before an adventure and between adventures.  It was a house rule in the campaign in which I played that you could do as much write up on your character as you wanted and, since your character received experience for all of that activity, you would have a much more powerful character as a result.  I wanted Jen to experience this, but was concerned that having her write the character up from day one would throw the work/fun ratio out of balance.  So I came up with a compromise.  I wrote the character up myself to the point where she could have just played it and had a very capable, very playable character and gave her the option of doing some additional write-up with me to enhance the character still further.  This way if the workload had proven too onerous, we could just have ended write up and started playing right there.

I named him Taurion.  He’s a magic user with a secondary specialty in Cabbalism.  G. came up with a female version too, but at 5’4″ she was no match for Taurion’s 6’3″ massiveness, not to mention that women in Medieval times didn’t exactly fair very well.  I’m learning how the whole thing works, and I have my own dice too.  We got the game going while I was there, and we’ll be doing more of it on the phone, which is why I bought the dice.  Next November, after we’ve been playing it for a good amount of time, I should have enough of a story to be able to use it for NaNoWriMo.  Bonus, if you ask me!  The whole gaming thing is like when I realized I didn’t know anything about sports and started listening to sports radio to learn about it.  Now I have a chance to learn all about the gaming world that I was never geeky enough to be in on when I was younger.

Which was what I was aiming for all along.

I also gained another nickname, Little Bunny FooFoo.  G. was playing this game on his old computer, and it was taking FOREVER, so I started with the “Are we done yet?” thing, which tends to get old pretty fast.  I was getting bored, so I stared doing bunny ears with my fingers, and started “walking” the bunny ears behind the monitor, along the top.  For some reason I started singing the Little Bunny FooFoo song to go with it.  I have no idea why.  I told him that if the game wasn’t over soon, that Little Bunny FooFoo was going to bop him on the head.  He cracked up!  From then on it became a “thing”.  “Little Bunny FooFoo is getting irritated”, and a couple others, all of which cracked him up.
I will remind all and sundry that one of things I like to say is that I am perpetually amused.

As far as playing, there was only one real punishment spanking, because I asked for it later in the second week.  He’d been using all the evil implements on me for days and days, but never in a serious way, and I do have a punishment fetish after all.

She hadn’t accrued any major transgressions since last we met, so I didn’t have any kind of mandatory disciplinary session on the calendar.   It is part of my fairness thing, I believe that in order for punishment to have the proper effect on behavior, it must be avoidable.  After all, if you are going to “get it” anyway, then what is the incentive to behave?  Requests, of course, are another matter.
Most of the playing we did involved a lot of laughing, and me suggesting that a bonfire would be a good thing.  I was also not marking much, which was really getting on my nerves.  I hadn’t played in over a year, and the first day we played I could feel how much I hadn’t been playing, but still, after days and days of playing, only a couple bruises that didn’t last for more than a day.  He used the riding crop a lot, a wooden paddle, the Lexan paddle, the back scratcher, his evil plastic indestructible spoon from hell, and the hairbrush.  There was a good session with the belt too, of course, because well, it’s the belt!  We weren’t so intent on results for the most part, as far as a change in my behavior.  We were having fun with it, which was why all the laughing.  G. is all business for punishment spankings, which means there’s no fooling around.  He was being very silly for most of the spankings I got this time, with some dancing and singing involved on his part, which was cracking me up completely!

See above under perpetually amused.

The day after the only punishment spanking I got, realizing that I still didn’t have any marks, and desperately wanting marks that lasted more than a few days (you’ll find out how desperately in a second LOL), I asked for the unthinkable.  Last year the switch he’d used was so intense that I thought I’d never ask for that again, but I knew that marks from a switch would last for quite a while.  Like last year he made me go outside and cut one myself!  So unfair. ;)   I found one switch that was the most perfect switch I’d ever seen, thin, still green (in October??), and whippy as hell.  He wasn’t sure it would be enough.  When he started using it I knew that it would be WAY more than enough!  That thing hurt like absolute HELL.  So so evil!  Afterwards he had me stand in the corner and he took pics.  When I saw the pics I knew it had worked.  I had my marks!  I will say though, unless I have stopped marking altogether, we’re not using the switch again.  Those things are just wrong!

I will file that away for future reference  :-))

He had also read the blog post I wrote before I went there, about wanting a good long caning to relax me and get rid of some of my stress.  He used the cane a little bit early on, but along with other things.  Then, on the last Friday night, he only brought the cane out, and I got my nice long caning.  It was wonderful.  There’s no thrashing around or trying to get away from it, I just relax into the bed.  The next day was the day we went into the city.  My legs had tightened up so much that I could barely walk that night, and again he brought out only the cane, so I got another long caning, which was perfect after such a physically demanding day.  On the last whole day he caned me again.  Three canings was more than I had ever expected.  They had done their work, I was a lot more relaxed.  I didn’t fly, but being as relaxed as I ended up was just as good as far as I was concerned.  It was a very good vacation, which I REALLY REALLY needed.

Glad it worked out so well.
