Siren Song

Highlights

Friday:
Got to the hotel early. For some reason I wa thinking that it was a 3-hour drive from the house, probably because in previous years we've taken Sadie to Dog Camp on the way.
Set up the massage table. Ended up with the ReallyBigRoom®, so it worked out nicely, then headed out to the main room.
And started smiling. And basically didn't stop.
It was like coming home.

Hugs from gingerpook.

Happy chocolate evening. |-)

Side note: it became obvious that trying to schedule massages wouldn't work, so it was catch as catch can. Unfortunately, that meant that all the massages happened on Saturday.

Recognizing people from LJ and making the connection to who they are (alisgray, vaxjo, 7thstranger, lio (not frost as I had originally posted), dddragonlady).


Saturday:
Massages. Hot tub. Conversations. Being around creative, intelligent people with a sense of humor. Consuite. Laughter. djnoise's slow-mo-cam. Stuff. Meeting new friends. Sense of belonging.

3 90-minute (or so) massages in one day. Being not in the shape that I should be, I was physically exhausted by the end. But it was good, and it was good for me. I got touch-time which I have sorely needed for months, and I got out of my head for some nice chunks of time.

cleo dancing.

ljeowynmn flirting.

Gay Porn marhmallow sculpture.



Sunday:
More of the same. Getting a massage. Packing. Sad to leave. Dinner with 7thstranger, gingerpook & Gunthar.
Home.
Pup time.

Dog is love.

Overall:
Diminished capacity for flirting. I was a LOT more reserved than I normally would be.

Being in the company of these people felt unbelievably good.

I need to spend more time geting to know some people.

Social anxiety. More an observation of my own as compared to others.


Then saveau came home and we talked. Apparently there was some drama while I was gone. I still don't know the details, but I may need to deal with a situation.

I'm not trying to be heartless, but it's not my problem anymore. Except when you make it my problem.

It was so good to sit and talk with you, and even better to hug you :)

Need to see you more!

Thanks for the massage... I'm still a little sore, but it's a good sore. We'll have to have more of a chat sometime; I was too wasted to talk to anyone for any significant amount of time. Whoops. =/

It was good rooming with you. ANd I'm sure when I get back there will be opportunities for chatism.

Hopefully there's no bruising. :)

Drama
Let me emphasize that it was about ninety seconds of drama, at the most. It was essentially a statement that coming down here to deal with everything is very hard on her, which is understandable.

I don't have a firm grip on where Barb's head is really at with all this, as she is not as freely spoken about things as you. At least, not to me; I assume (and hope) that she is speaking at length to others.

I can infer quite a bit about her headspace, based both on what you've said and on the few times she has opened up to me... but I try to be wary of inferring too much.

Hmmm...

I was about to close by stating that you shouldn't neccessarily expect a problem to come up... then I remembered history...

Argh.

Re: Drama
The key on the counter concerns me. If she's really planning on not coming back to the house, then I need to handle some things ASAP.

It was very nice to see you. I think there should be a spring OmegaCON, it needs to happen more! *pout*

I don't remember dancing, could you refresh my memory? and damn, I missed a massage from you. I will have to remember to ask next time :)

Glad you had a good time.

You were dancing in the hallway during a bit of karaoke. It was late Saturday. It was very nice. :)

Massage-- I was using Eve's table, but I'll be getting my own either this winter or spring depending on money availability. When I'm back up full-time (hopefully in the spring) we can arrange one.

I know exactly what you mean! That weekend was the most decompressed/destressed I've been in what feels like ages!
