Snakeskin…

When Master said, “You will wear Snakeskin”,

dievca thought this:

 

she didn’t realize Master meant this:

 

Urban Dictionary Top Definition:
the dried after effects of ejaculation creating a thin-film upon the chest or stomach

Fun…but tricky…


Good News! Master is Home.


Sharing something useful…

#2 Tossware

Yikes!  Rooftops in NYC are really windy and it’s not safe to have crystal wineglasses get knocked over or break on the concrete.

Tossware is a brand of reusable, recyclable crystal clear plastic-ware which is elegant for parties where traditional crystal is not a smart idea.

dievca found it very elegant to use, it washes well and stacks/stores easily for the cupboard or storage unit.

Excellent for a NYC apartment building and just as good for the Suburbia Football Saturdays grilling out on the patio.

dievca bought her Tossware on Amazon.

Take a look:

You can even go on to the Tossware site and get pieces made for your event or use their fun graphics:

 

 


Sharing 16 hours….Union Square to Chelsea.

After work on Saturday, dievca hustled across to the Union Square Farmer’s Market to shop with a friend, she wanted to get apples or pears to make another Crisp for when Master returns. It ended up being apples.

Realizing that she didn’t eat since 6:30 am, she and her friend ambled over to The Coffee Shop – a NYC, Union Square staple. It was closed. dievca was just there at the end of September. The place was hopping at 3 pm~

Devastated that another NYC landmark was dropping out due to rents, they wandered into Flat Fix, a taco shop owned by the same people. The Manager confirmed the heavy rent increases (plus higher minimum wage and food/beverage costs) forced The Coffee Shop to close. Rumors about a bank and two chain restaurants taking over the space. FlatFix is staying.

dievca left her friend at the subway station and started to meander home. Seeing silly things in the City:

Yes, that water-resistant cashmere Herno coat is something dievca would love to buy for Master…..the hefty price tag (about 2K) will limit that purchase. It was GORGEOUS….

The next morning, with the time change she got up early and walked the High Line to meet a friend for breakfast and saw a bit of Fall Colors. Supposedly the colors in Upstate New York are not very good because of the super hot and wet Summer.

On the way home, she investigated two options for her “money from the sidewalk” homeless donation jar.

  • Church of the Holy Apostles Soup Kitchen (dievca sees that it is heavily in use)
  • Antonio Olivieri Drop-In Center (across from Penn Station – also heavily in use)

OK, the money collected off the street may only be $50, but that is $50 put towards helping someone eat or shower.

dievca hopes you have enjoyed your “Fall Back” time change as much as she enjoyed her 16 hours. XO
