Long year in review meme

by | Dec 21, 2004

1. What did you do in 2004 that you’d never done before?
Owned my own dungeon! Spent a whole year as an independent Mistress

2. Did you keep your new years’ resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
I don’t think I made any – just some vauge concepts that may or may not transform into plan 😉

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
Yes – my friend Michele!

4. Did anyone close to you die?
Yes – I lost my Great-Aunt a couple of months short of her 90th birthday…

5. What countries did you visit?

6. What would you like to have in 2005 that you lacked in 2004?
More travel! More international recognition as a ProDomme…

7. What dates from 2004 will remain etched upon your memory, and why?
I don’t really remember dates – I have a lot of cool memories though 😉

8. What was your biggest achievement of the year?
Being a successful independent ProDomme, creating one of the best dungeons in the world (or so I’ve been told by people who’ve visited a lot more dungeons round the world than I have!)

9. What was your biggest failure?
I haven’t had any failures – a few mistakes perhaps but nothing too bad.

10. Did you suffer illness or injury?
not really – a minor sprain, a sniffle or two…

11. What was the best thing you bought?
Ooh – hard to say, the best thing I got was actually a gift from kellilasub – my beautiful handmade bondage bench… things I bought – violet wand, singletail…. dark purple paint!

12. Whose behaviour merited celebration?
All the lovely polite submissive men that I’ve got to play with 🙂

13. Whose behaviour made you appalled and depressed?
No one that I know personally – in general anyone who behaves with violence which is the opposite of BDSM.

14. Where did most of your money go?
Dungeon upkeep, toys and equipment, good wine!

15. What did you get really, really, really excited about?
Lots of fantastic play – often including rope, canes, torment and other lovely things 😉 – or did you not mean “that” sort of excited… hehehehe

16. What song will always remind you of 2004?
Coin Operated Boy by The Dresden Dolls

17. Compared to this time last year, are you:
a) happier or sadder?
b) thinner or fatter?
c) richer or poorer?
Not sure, you’d have to ask my accountant! In general I don’t worry too much about money – there’s always enough! (or near enough anyway)

18. What do you wish you’d done more of?
Walked to the dungeon instead of driving! Seen my friends – I’ve been really slack as a mate this year, just spending time making my dungeons the way I want them! Getting out a bit more…

19. What do you wish you’d done less of?
Driving when I could have walked. Lurking about at home when I could have been doing something more fun… camping/climbing/outdoor stuff – I didn’t do much this year for a change!

With my family

22. Did you fall in love in 2004?
Still in love

Ooh – probably Survivor – it’s one of the only shows I watch… though I’ve seen some good episodes of Law and Order.

25. Do you hate anyone now that you didn’t hate this time last year?
I don’t hate anyone…

26. What was the best book you read?
Neal Stephenson – The Confusion

Lots of cool toys and sessions with wonderful people.

29. What did you want and not get?
Knee high lace up leather boots 🙁

30. What was your favorite film of this year?
Umm – hard to say – I don’t really go to the movies so much… maybe “Touching the void” or “Shrek 2” if it’s just something fun… I have to say “Supersize Me” made me so glad that I’m a vegetarian!

31. What did you do on your birthday, and how old were you?
I was 36 – I didn’t do anything very special this year… it was just after Sleaze Ball!

32.What one thing would have made your year immeasurably more satisfying?

33. How would you describe your personal fashion concept in 2004?
Fetish Goddess or scruffy workout gear!

Angelina Jolie

37. Who did you miss?
My friends from Salon Kittys; Mistress Mia and skye – I kept in better touch with Mistress Serena (or rather she kept in touch with me!)

38. Who was the best new person you met?
I met lots of wonderful subs – and forged deeper relationships with others.

39. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2004:
I don’t need to do anything I don’t want to simply to make money… the more I am true to my Dominant nature the more successful I am as a ProDomme…

40. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
Ooh – hard to pick…

New Order are always a good choice
“In the end you will submit
It’s got to hurt a little bit”

Or The Dresden Dolls
“coin operated boy
sitting on the shelf he is just a toy
but i turn him on and he comes to life
automatic joy
that is why i want a coin operated boy”
