Here’s Miss Maggie Mayhem (whom, I’m sure I’ve mentioned before, I have such a huge crush on) in a beautiful suspension…. The rigger (as seen in image #2) is the talented Luke Degre. (click on images for full size)
Now for the rant: I’m sick, and I hate everybody. Well, not everybody, but certainly the people from Flickr and MeetUp.com. Flickr deleted my account with no notice, despite the fact that I had completely followed and respected their rules and terms of service. And they are not replying to my request to know why my account was deleted.
And I tried to set up a MeetUp for our local “Liquid Munch,” and was told that “we are not able to start topics of this nature” — despite the fact that they have “polyamory” and “hedonism” groups. Hello?! So you can support alternative lifestyles that involve multiple sexual partners and orgies and other forms of kinky sex (because what is hedonism about, if not kinky sex? [yes, this is an over-simplification, but I've never met a self-confirmed hedonist who wasn't kinky!] ) but not my alternative lifestyle? (Which, I’ll have you know, used to involve polyamory, and may again, Master willing, and will always include hedonism, because life’s too short not to be a hedonist!)
I swear … this is why I’m a photographer and writer. In my art, I can make the world into a place I’d like to live in. Not this annoying and frustrating one!
And, oh right: my health. My sore throat’s gone really bad, I have a fever, and I spent most of yesturday too dizzy to do much more than lurch to the kitchen occasionally to get water so I’d stay hydrated. I have a doctor appointment today, so we’ll see if A.) they can actually find anything wrong with me, and B.) they actually have anything that will make me better.
I’m supposed to be in an advanced CSS class today, which I was really, really looking forward to, and instead I’m home, waiting to drag my sick arse to the doctor. Can you see why I’m cranky?!
