Okay, okay… I know I’ve been slacking off on the whole blog post thing, but finding time to sit and write has been somewhat stifled since I took on this new job, have been a responsible adult just passing her 32nd year (happy birthday to me), performing, training, cleaning up after parrots and serpents, and still finding time in the day to strip and tassel twirl. Not to mention allotted time to eat/sleep/fuck/etc. Partly it has a little to do with the weather being dreary, but hey, I live in Vancouver and it’s what we are known for.
Instead of letting a smile be my umbrella, because that is a ludicrous concept and doesn’t work on a practical level, I’ve come up with a quick list of fun things to do in Vancouver when it’s wet and rainy.
1. Wear white or items that will turn sheer when wet.
Because if it’s a downpour and it’s not too cold (and it hasn’t been) there is something cathartic about just letting yourself get drenched. So I choose to take a page from Flashdance and get really saturated. Preferrably when wearing black lingerie with lighter top layers for a neat-o x-ray effect. Not only will it do your soul a little good to just enjoy the heaven’s rain (while it’s still not made of acid) but you’ll likely make someone else’s day when they see you in wet, clingy clothes with your best AP gear slyly peeking through overlaying fabric.
2. Smoke more pot.
Because all of a sudden you’ll find that things you enjoyed as a child (cartoons, building forts, making diabetic-shock inducing snacks) takes on a whole new dimension when you are stoned. Consequently, be prepared for your roommate or lover coming home and wondering what the fuck you did to the house (yes, the whole house is a fort, and yes I did use the giant bag of marshmallows to make that giant s’mores). However, if they have any sense of fun, they’ll hit a hoot and join you watching TMNT in your fort on your laptop and eating the rice krispies square you sculpted into a dragon. Win.
3. Sexy times.
Well, it’s wet and rainy, and if going out in a cloudburst isn’t your thing, you can always find a way to entertain you and your lover by having very a smorgasbord of make outs, kisses, caresses, spanks, snuggles, etc. Think of it as a sexual choose-your-own-adventure. It’s like hibernating. Naked.
4. Jumping in puddles.
We live in a rainforest city. We get massive puddles. Stop whining about how you can’t wear your hot suede peep-toe heels and put on some rubber… boots. Find the puddles. Get airborne and obey Newton’s law into the water.
So this is the start of how to have fun when it’s wet out. I really-real blog is on it’s way, but for now, I’m going to go put on a white t-shirt and get the gumboots out.
Hugs and hisses,
Little Miss Risk
