Dreams last night were, erm, odd. Again.
The less odd one was the one where I could fly (again) and was visiting a HUGE antiques fair in a field somewhere with mhw, imago, ladymoonray, someone else called Katy who was really chokingly beautiful, and a bunch of other people I don't remember. ladymoonray bought a pair of wooden candlesticks taller than she is, while mhw found china penguins and looked at them for hours before deciding not to buy one.
The stranger one was some kind of conference on something utterly innocuous, which I ended up at with several members of the Londonpolybi crowd, and four persons from elsewhere in the country. I can't remember what the conference was on but it really was something harmless like local environmental concerns or cake-baking, but whatever it was, suddenly one of the official demonstrations required katyha and adjectivemarcus to go lie face down on raised tables in front of us and be whipped relatively mercilessly. ~baffled~
And after that it continued in a similar vein, with some *bizarre* BDSM-themed game of 'Stuck In The Mud' (people who never played that at school, you're fortunate).
It finished with dennyd screaming at me in a church pew for being upset with something grahamb (who was keeping score) had said. I was so indignant at being screamed at that I woke up. ~s~
Somewhere in the aforementioned game of Stuck In the Mud, one of the non-London people who in real, waking life I've recently been astounded to find is involved in BDSM (cue a chorus of the "But He's So Sweet And Fluffy" song) came over to where I was kneeling on a tiled floor. He had a long leather trenchcoat on and was carrying a whip (that looked much like this only prettier and newer) and just wandered over and said "Hello, you", to which my reply got as far as "Hi -" upon which he tilted my head up with the handle of the whip and said "Don't talk, now" as if I should have known not to.
Which I suppose perhaps I should.
I'm so glad I already had a crush on him, that would really have messed my head up if I hadn't. ~smile~
(Yes, wildeabandon, you can laugh. ~g~)
PS While searching for pictures of whips via Google Images, I found this, it scared me. ~g~
