It must have been a lot of people got those Kindle e-reader things for Christmas since everyone sat on the train near this girl was using them on the way to work today. This girl finds them odd. It’s like a computer *trying* to be a book – with a pretend leather cover and everything.
Perhaps she’s getting old but the kindle is a piece of technology she fails to understand, and that is a statement coming from a technosexual 🙂 This girl admits there are certain things she reads electronically whilst commuting – emails (which she then forgets to reply to – sorry!) and sometimes blogs and things (though she has to skip the ones with naughty pics!) since its sometimes the most amount of time on a work day that she has to read these things and takes her mind a bit of the commute, but reading a whole book electronically just seems a totally alien idea. Since she cannot comprehend how flicking through a little computer screen can compare to the feel and smell of paper.
This particular electronic gadget wont be here in 50 years, it will be something else. Books should still be around. Some of them old and battered, their pages browning from age. Books are a part of history in a sort of tangible way that the internet and virtual information isn’t. Storing information that might fill a library on a computer is efficient, but it’s cold in comparison. If there was some sort of virus that killed all computers, or made it so that everything read electronically was monitored then having books would be priceless, yet less and less people seem to be reading them in public.
This girl often is interested to see what people read, maybe its nosy, but its interesting to gauge a bit about the person, or if not them, maybe about the person who bought the book. This girl is currently reading the girl who kicked the hornets nest – if there are any other larsson fans out there do comment 🙂 That perhaps might say she likes thrillers with a bit of sexual violence and intrigue? But lately a lot of what she reads just says that she’s bought a 3 for 2 in waterstones lol. No seriously though, this girl does enjoy more classical literature and there are books that she can read like friends especially books from her childhood like the Chronicles of Narnia (harry potter = rubbish in comparison)
Sometimes this girl reads fetish fiction. Not often however, since whilst there is most definitely an element of escapism to it most fetish books annoy this girl before half way through because they either have some sort of sexual activity every couple of pages or are just so far removed from her own subjective understanding of BDSM. Characters in BDSM novels never have periods or colds or have to go and see their parents. They don’t have to hold down a job or trudge up to the train station in the snow. They don’t have the stolen moments they have the full on thing constantly. But ok none of those things fit anyone’s fantasy do they lol.
Yeah . OK> This girl’s a bit green-eyed. There are times when she would love a life incorporating more structured bdsm and more time to enjoy it than stolen weekends here and there. Perhaps even just short-term. Lately she has done very little BDSM, and so as such there is not very much to write about apart from thoughts that are already in head.
This girl hasn’t missed it too much in the sense that the time with him was worth so much more than having a man about to hurt her. It stopped being about that a long time ago. If this girl was still only looking forward to seeing Grimly for the purpose of getting hurt and bound and fucked into infinity (and beyond 😉 ) then there wouldn’t be enough to base a marriage on.
This girl feels bad though that maybe people come here expecting to read about some insane kinky life. Honestly it’s not the case. There are splashes here and there , well in fact, let’s face it , great big fucking dives into madness, but that just can’t be maintained all the time.
Christmas and new year came and went, and was mostly pretty vanilla. This girl is not complaining however. It was perfect. She had lots of time with Grimly , and with friends, and a good break of work, and that was what she ended up needing much more than the bondage. Lots of other things are happening like wedding plans and so on and later in the year there will be enough kink to fill up an entire decade no doubt. There is all the time in the world to get tied up, for the moment though she just needs to sit here and read about it !
