What can I say? I love to get up to Minneapolis on the weekends. I've got some of the best kinky friends in the world. I wasn't even up here to celebrate anything, but I felt like I was with all the awesome times.
Gear Night at the Eagle was Saturday. I didn't do a whole lot of advertising or arm twisting, simply because of my work schedule. But WHOA! It was the BEST attended Gear NIght we've had yet! There was easily about 150 HOT kinky guys in the underground. So many so that it was difficult to move around at times (not that that is a problem!) Special thanks to TrainerAndBoy and his partner for working so hard to motivate all the hot kinksters to show up, and thanks to them for being such good people - I'm looking forward to getting to know them more in the future. And also looking forward to seeing the crowds get bigger and bigger and bigger on the 2nd Saturday gear nights! There's a few pics from a pre-party we went to on my Facebook profile - go check it out, and see what you're missing at the MPLS Eagle.
My best friend in Minneapolis is a pup. He's really the only true one around here that we can find. I'm so happy for him because he finally figured out his pup name. Everyone, please welcome PupTrigger. It happened in his car. Such a cute face when he found it felt right. We then spent the rest of the afternoon shopping for some rubber for my run at MIR.
Speaking of which, I'm starting to see some results from working out. I've been doing P90X. It's been three weeks and I already see a huge difference. It's not gimmicky! If you need to get in shape, look into it.
And finally, I've been talking to local business about sponsorship for the competition. Making a little headway. And hopeful to have a local sponsor at MIR. I really, really want the world to know that Minneapolis has kink, and I'd like to show just how awesome it is here.
Coming up: Next month's gear night is September 11th at the Minneapolis Eagle, which is right around my birthday. So de facto, I'm making it into Gear Night/My Birthday Party!!! Come on out, someone needs to give me 26 spankings.
Oh! And check out Leatherati. They've posted a new Issues column on "What is Leather?" I submitted a post and they're still looking for others to submit as well. Check them out - that's one of my favorite other leather blogs I read.
