It was a Maine lobster town— each morning boatloads of hands pushed off for granite quarries on the islands, and left dozens of bleak white frame houses stuck like oyster shells on a hill of rock, and below us, the sea lapped the raw little match-stick mazes of a weir, where the fish for bait were trapped. Remember? We sat on a slab of rock. From this distance in time it seems the color of iris, rotting and turning purpler, but it was only the usual gray rock turning the usual green when drenched by the sea. The sea drenched the rock at our feet all day, and kept tearing away flake after flake. One night you dreamed you were a mermaid clinging to a wharf-pile, and trying to pull off the barnacles with your hands. We wished our two souls might return like gulls to the rock. In the end, the water was too cold for us.
dievca remembers how tough it was to go Trick-Or-Treating and then you realized that you had to go to the BATHROOM…do you run home?
Do you ask at someone’s house?
Or do you do the Latex Darth Vadar dance and hope you can hold it for another hour…
In the United States, a pink–collar worker performs jobs in the service industry. Blue–collar workers are people who do skilled or unskilled manual labor, and white-collar workers typically do professional, managerial, or administrative work in an office environment.
The pink–collar term was coined during the Second World War, when women occupied jobs as secretaries, typists, and transcribers. But as the U.S. economy evolved, pink-collar jobs became defined as those that were traditionally dominated by women.
Some pink-collar jobs that are traditionally held by women include:
flight attendant, nurse, secretary, librarian … and so on.
Let see if dievca can make Master comfortable as He takes to the bright blue skies.
Service with a wink and a smile.
Perhaps, she and Master can take an opportunity to see what enjoyment can be had in a small bathroom as they fly “a mile high”.
dievca, the Research Librarian, is available for Master’s use.
Can she find Him any pertinent information about His interests?
Let’s see if she can search the bookcases for that elegant book of Erotic Poetry.
(John Donne, ee cummings, William Carlos Williams, Catullus, Walt Whitman)
So, completely politically incorrect…
…but a lot of fun from the D/s and CosPlay standpoint.
dievca is taking the BDSM, lighthearted, CosPlay view of these jobs. she completely understands there are societal issues about pay, behavior, dressing that have been instilled since the 1920’s and are affecting Women’s rights and growth currently. But, as an accent to BDSM play — the career stereotypes make for interesting scenes and presentation opportunities. Please forgive dievca if you do take offense – she means this post in good fun.
You might remember that dievca mentioned that Cinderella is her favorite Fairy Tale. And after some challenging times, she and a girlfriend made their way through the 42nd Street tourist craziness to see the new Disney Cinderella….(uhh, don’t do it — it’s a chaotic theatre~)
dievca doesn’t want to be Cinderella, she wants to be the Wicked Stepmother! dievca wants Cate Blanchett’s costumes, ALL of them, especially the Ball Gown!
The costumes are the work of legendary costume designer and three-time Oscar winner Sandy Powell. She took inspiration from various 1940s silhouettes and actresses like Joan Crawford for the perfectly coiffed Stepmother’s looks. Powell wanted Blanchett’s outfits to look like a 1940s period film that was set in the 19th century. They completed the look with perfectly pined-up and curled hair and heavier eye make-up, plus deep red lipstick.
Battle Armour for a scary Stepmother…
All pieces dievca WANTS!
