Its fair to say this blog comes totally out of left field, due to a couple of events this week. One a conversation, and one I read.
One thing, for reasons best known to myself probably, is that I’ve never been one to shy away from meeting people I’ve got to know online. Its fair to say that in these cases, I’ve known the people for quite a while online beforehand, and even spoken to some of them by phone first, which is a bit different to the scenario I’m going to discuss tonight. It does seem to work for me, given that since that first meet with Kate, we’ve done more than a few holidays together, and I’ve met James more than once as well. Hey, a couple of them I’ve even let brainwash, sorry, hypnotize me, and of course, one of them was how I discovered Clara Johnson, something that is just so special for me.
And yes, this week, I met another fellow author, Betsy, and all went fine. Mind, we were in a hotel, with other guests, but in truth, she was such delightful company that it really didnt matter where it was.
Which is very different to the other side of this matter, as per this side story that I’ve got to read this week.
OK, there is an extra reason for this appealing to me, and anyone who knows my author name will know why! Yes, Merry Brooks, for those who dont! For those interested…
They are also up at Amazon for those who prefer them there, but they pay less commission, so… 😉
I must admit, I’m fascinated as to what life as an escort of that type would be like? I know, clients demand sex, and me, and sex…rolls eyes…! Also, it might be an option if I was 20, pretty, and had all the ‘right bits’, but a plain, Trans Woman who has hit 60, not likely to find out now, lets face it. But fine, to get dressed up, and made up like Meredith, to be someone’s companion for the night might be quite an experience! But unless anyone fancies giving me the chance to find out, I’ll have to settle for reading, and imagining it, I’m sure.
Also, I know these clients are vetted, by good agencies at least, and everything, but how weird would it be to meet someone for the first time, at the start of the evening, when you know where events are expected to lead to? Yes, thats a diplomatic way to put it, lol! And fine, given I dont do sex, yes, I’m not going to make a dream escort lol!
But yes, however weird it might sound, every time I read a story where a woman acts as a classy escort, I do wonder what that sort of life would be like? Any offers, lol?
Fine, video time. This more relates to the ‘other side’ of the sex industry, but I couldnt think of anything more suitable. This is the very edited 3 and a half minute TV version, to save readers time. If you view this on You Tube, there are live version at about 18 minutes available, wow! But fine, I’m looking for something a little bit more classy than the street, lol!
I guess its a natural tendency of the internet world, that we have friends, who we have never met, are never likely to meet, but at the same time, love dearly, and enjoy what they do. Tonight’s piece is about one of those people, someone named Betsy. Well, fine, I know her as Betsy, but whether that’s her real name, I have no idea. What I do know, is that she is a great writer, and I’m thrilled to be an online friend of hers, even if it never goes further than that.
Anyway, just over a week ago, she sent me a piece for approval. Not because it mentioned my name, let alone my full name, but fine, to anyone in the mind control story writing field, they’d know it was about me! I did object to the name she’d used for me. Fine, Seraphina might be a lovely name to some, but doesnt work for me. So I offered a few options to her as alternatives, and she decided on Maria. Yes, Metropolis robot connection, very apt for me. So last night, I found this on the archive update:
Yes, any resemblance to me would be entirely deliberate, I’m sure. In truth, Wakefield indoor market used to be one of my favorite places to shop, but I havent been over that way in over 2 years, and I know it was threatened with closure at one point, so I have no idea if its still there or not? In her defence, I have my doubts that Betsy has been there, but hey, I wrote a story about Hollywood before I went there, and another involving ECT, without having had the treatment lol!
No, for those that dont know already, I’m not telling you my author name there, though if you want to know, ask. Maybe that can get my ‘stalker’ in the US to write to me, if they’re curious lol!
No, I dont know how like Rhia that Betsy is. Nor I suspect will I ever know, for sure. But the little I know about her from our writings to each other, I think I would say, yes, there is plenty of Betsy in her! Though I should add, as far as I know, she doesnt control minds! But seriously, anyone who can use Letsby Avenue as an address in a story (think about it), is someone I love, in that non physical sense at least!
So yes, Betsy, I may, or may not ever meet you, but one thing is for sure, stories like this will always guarantee you a special place in my heart, all the same.
OK, the video. Big clue in the title, I guess? But no, its not the version you’d probably expect of an old wrinkly like me, its the Fugees version. I have no idea why I like this so much, but I do. Mind control, hmm?
