Just a bunch of weird stuff from a person who likes to talk to herself.
There are only a very few public posts as I am more comfortable with only those on my "friends" list knowing what goes on in my day to day world. I have Multiple Sclerosis. I am kinky/BDSM/submissive by nature but was also damned good at running things in my (former) career in hotel and restaurant management. I attended the University of California at Santa Barbara and California State University, Long Beach. That was in the 1970's. In my career I worked at The Breakers Hotel in Long Beach, CA; the Disneyland Hotel BEFORE it was owned by Disney -- but have a truly epic story about visiting there in 2003 and a "Mr. Toad's Wild Ride" adventure in a hotel golf cart at night, on Katella, with no lights; The Hyatt Regency, Long Beach where, among other duties, I had to put on a dinner between two rival South American nations -- this is where knowledge of proper place card protocol can mean the difference between massive bloodshed and successful diplomacy; as a winery marketing director who, as a former sommelier, wrote all the tasting notes for the wines. Along the way I have met a lot of famous people. Yes, Paul Newman's eyes were incredible but, give me Lloyd Bridges any day. I had dinner with he and Jeff and I have never met a sexier man than Lloyd; I was 35, he was 75. If only he hadn't been so devoted to his wife! ;-)
Now, I live in a small house in Morro Bay, CA. It is owned by my family. The M.S. has disabled me so that I can no longer work. My father drew up a family trust; this trust provides me with a home and other necessities. Distinct from others of the "me, me" baby boomer population my needs are very few. I do not have a TV; I do not own designer clothes; I am not in debt. I do not expect the government to pay all of my medical bills. I do not expect the government to be able to pay anyone's medical bills in the near future. Only when there is coverage for all will we see a true leveling.
If you're looking for the odd fan fiction I occasionally write go to: skyroom80_tales. There aren't many but, yes, they are kinky smut (with a plot because we females like a plot with our porn). It is viewable to everyone and comments are appreciated on the stories.
Just let me know if you want to be added to the friends list.
