Sleepy Contest Reflections
So…it’s the morning after, and I have a feeling that having not won I’m suppose to feel more down in the dumps, but really, that’s not how I’m feeling right now. I am first and foremost, tired. Doing contest stuff from yesterday to when the contest itself ended at…10? Then going to the after for a few hours. Not to mention all the prep before. This experience tested EVERYTHING I have as a leather person and though I wish I could’ve performed better result-wise, the more deserving person won, and I am legitimately proud of myself for having made it through the whole contest…running around like a chicken and all giving it the best I could offer that night. I do not regret one bit having done this. To my home, SF Citadel: It was an honor getting to represent you. Heck, I actually had a lot of fun doing this whole thing and would probably even do it again if given the opportunity.
Thank you’s go to my amazingly helpful and patient handler @-allyn-. You made sure I stayed hydrated during the action-packed meet & greet and that I got dressed and ready with breathing time to spare before every around. You even brought extra sets of outfits for me for just in case and was tough with me when toughness was warranted. I could not have done any of this without you. Additional thank you’s go the wonderful people who were a part of my fantasy. Thank you for working with me and being so patient even though the terrors of acting were getting best of me. You are good folks. And of course, I’d have messed up if I didn’t thank everyone at the Citadel for trusting me to represent you. Here I want to give a shout out to @Shayblondie for rounding up stuff for my basket and putting the word out me. You and @Stefanos have been such support for me during this whole thing it’s incredible.
Congrats go out to Little Bad Daddy, the current titleholder! It was an privilege getting to compete against you. You did well thoughout the weekend and kicked butt during the contest itself. You’re an all-around class act, and I have no doubt great things will come from you this coming year! I look forward to helping in whatever way I can!
With all that said, I now have a brunch to get to! You see that? I actually get to go to brunch! :D
Three days after the fact, and I still feel good about intherooms whole thing. In fact, one can even say it was awesomer! I can’t believe I’m saying this!
So, it’s been a few days and I still feel fine. Tired, but I feel fine.
I re-read what I wrote just now and realized I forgot to thank the people who contributed to my auction basket. So…A big thanks to:
My sponsor @sf_citadel the event passes.
My good friend and awesome handler Allyn for what I’m calling a spring cane.
MsTender and the folks at SM Odyssey for the admission to the 2015 FolsomFringe.
Wicked Grounds for their awesome schwag.
Miss Lola Sunshine for the Good Vibes schwag.
Zabet for the honey and the massage certificate.
Mazikeen for the super snazzy pair of duct tape floggers.
The lovely Qatana for the two Rope Love patches.
The point of my auction basket is to showcase the awesome independent non-bar institutions and merchants in the Bay Area, and a key way to keep our institutions going is not only to sing their praises, but to support them financially. So if these are the kind of folks you wish to see keep going, please look up them and seek out out their services!
