November is here as the pumpkins of Halloween begin to slowly turn all soft and mushy by the trash bin…. the leaves have all fallen, clogging the streets and covering the few scraps of toilet paper left dangling from the trees. By now you are all probably wondering what’s been up with me since Halloween eve….
No, no, no, I didn’t turn into a pumpkin myself at the mystic stroke of midnight, but I did mean to get back sooner with the details of my night of wild partying….. unfortunately…. something snuck up and got me but good. Seems there was a little something extra in my goodie bag that Halloween evening…..
Wanna know all about it? Well… then you’re just gonna have to “Read On”, to find out…
Halloween itself was fun….. I went in to work early that day for a couple hours just to make certain things would go well for my crew that evening, then it was back to the apartment to begin the laborious process of painting myself green… Just me and a sponge and a tub of green body paint standing in the shower trying to get all little nooks and crannies covered. It probably wouldn’t have taken so long if Orion slave girls wore more clothing…. Luckily Carolyn was ever sooo willing to help me with it…. paying perhaps a weeee bit too much attention to detail than was strictly necessary, but finally it was all set.
She hadn’t seen my complete costume till that afternoon…. I had really wanted to completely surprise her with the whole overall effect. Just like I had hoped it would, the Vampire Lady’s wig went perfectly with it…. long and dark and falling right to my buttocks…. even longer than my hair used to be!! I slipped into the rest of the outfit and put on all the jingly jewelry, the coin belt and ankle bells and a spiked black leather collar…. (just perfect for either a fairly large rottweiler or a fairly petite Asian woman).
When she saw the whole thing, Carolyn jumped right out of her chair. She couldn’t believe how frightfully… scandalous… the whole thing looked!! Mind you…. she looked quite the fierce vixen herself in her “mirror universe” costume, but mine was just every Trekkie’s wet dream come to life, Hehehehe!! (She jokes that I might just have to reprise this look…. just for her, some evening…. Tsk, tsk, such a naughty, naughty woman…..)
Halloween evening itself turned out to be clear, but exceptionally chilly…. necessitating a long down coat for me till we got to the party. Once there, the Pub was as packed as I thought it would be, and our skimpy costumes were actually an advantage in the overheated space. It didn’t take long to get into the spirit of the evening…. and I have to say we were two mighty popular ladies with the crowd. Seems everybody (mostly guys… imagine that!!) wanted pictures with us… or to buy us drinks, dance and generally chat us up. It was fun…. wild and crazy, and more fun than I’ve had out in a long time. I did perhaps drink a wee bit too much…. but only enough to get downright silly. I figured I’d pay for it the next day, but boy…… was I wrong about just how much.
I was a bit hung over the next morning, but by midday Sunday knew something else was afoot….. I had aches, chills, and worse…… terrible vomiting and diarrhea for most of that evening. Seems somewhere I’d picked up a particularly nasty flu bug…… and it’s been with me the last few days since.
I’ve been pretty much unable to work…. Usually I feel reasonably good after a night’s sleep, but by mid afternoon, I start feeling pretty crappy, if not downright ill. I wish all this extra time was letting me watch more movies, but that’s not really the case…. Hopefully that’ll change as I get feelin’ a bit more like my old self again…. as I’ve got quite the pile built up and waiting.
Till then…. it’s rest and relaxation with plenty of fluids for this sick lil’ kitty…… Wish me luck!!
