oh wow! tomorrow is actually xmas!

i'm sick too. cough cough. achoo achoo.
hawaii was awesome, post on that later.
but the day after flying back i woke up with a sore throat and it's not gone away.
instead it's gotten worse. so meh. good time to catch up on things...

obviously the world is on facebook - aside from certain portions of it.
if you find me on there (i only add people/friends i know in real life now), i've just posted/updated/finalized my flying 2010 album.
here's the public link:

2010: Point to point 43 times. I took advantage of the rail in order to enjoy the scenery from the ground: TPA to FLL (across Florida), LON to EDI (stopped in Malvern then N via York - nice station, btw), AMS to Essen (flying makes no sense, 1st class rail yes), Rome to BLQ (1st frecciarossa is nice, large stations under construction, no!). 2011 will hold less, but I still have future flights confirmed!

A couple of weeks ago, I took a trip down to San Diego with some friends.
A pretty simple itinerary. Airport, Hotel, Food, Sleep, Dive, Dive, Dive, Food, Sleep, Zoo, Airport.

It was fun tho I was pretty grumpy cuz of owie teeth. (which I took care of right after the SD trip in the bestest way!)
And before flying out of Oakland airport (instead of San Jose), me n Alexis was in San Francisco running errands and scarfing up yummy stuff at Ti Couz.

My year in review.

yes. i realize the year isn't done yet but i've got some changes happening and now is as good a time as any to summarize the past year of travel and work - especially since i've decided it's the right time to move on.
i have some flights booked in the next couple of months. one is a flight from the US to London, the other is a flight from Copenhagen to Vienna, and another for Vienna to Bologna. I'm going to cancel them or else postpone them for a later date (in 2011) and we'll see what happens.
Otherwise, I'm going to be staying state-side for the next few months. I don't want to say that my days of traveling are over, but I will say my days of working as a fetish model are. It's time for a fresh start, yup yup!

One major thing I notice now with my blogging is that it completely went to shit. Too many of my LJ entries are twitter crap.
Well, at least i've stopped the retweets into my LJ. Unfortunately that didn't necessarily keep me posting so there are empty gaps that should have been filled with proper blogging. I need to fix that.
Luckily I do have the moblog so at least I have some sense of where I was during the year without having to sift through hundreds of one-liners.

BTW, clicking on links below will lead to more detailed LJ entries. some have lots of photos in them.

January - I'd been staying local. Not doing much besides going to the Nuthouse. I started using FourSquare and I also had to start up a new FaceBook profile due to being deleted. For NYE i stayed local & didn't fly anywhere exotic. Wow. Exciting. Got to go to dinner with [livejournal.com profile] meico  and [livejournal.com profile] ayia  visiting from Scotland. That was cool. Oh, I also cemented in plans for my big bday bash (taking place in March). I was supposed to perform at another party but since they couldn't take the time to confirm, I decided to throw my own. (and it was awesome). I ranted about models (again) and i saw Up in the Air (and I liked it). Gilles Berquet sent me a book (i'm in it). Oh, I also spent too much time ranting about Alt vs Fetish.
heh.

February - Samar and I flew to Arizona for the fetishball out there. It was great. I was so excited to be at an airport after almost like a billion days of no air travel (it was about 84 actually). and when we got to SJC, it was new and different too! (airports=porn). then in Arizona we hung out with cookie mostly, went out, and i got to swim in a super heated pool and then check out the Desert Botanical garden which gave me a renewed interest in seeing as many Chihuly scluptures as possible during my travels. I also did a lil shoot too. After I got back to Cali, I unpacked and then packed for my flight to Atlanta the next day! That was fun. Hung out with all sorts of peeps, and then jumped on a flight down to Tampa where most of my days were spent in the sun enjoying the weather by the pool and hitting DisneyWorld. Then I decided at the last minute to head over (by train) to Ft Lauderdale to visit Kendra James & Gary.

March - stuff happened. like my decision to 'retire' came into my head. had a huge bday party and almost everyone showed up (ok not EVERYONE). It was awesome. it was great. it was just about perfect. tho samar had a lil accident and [livejournal.com profile] allenfalkner  spent a little more time in the hospital than he wanted to. oh, and at the end of the month, i flew to London (hello British Airways strike!).

April - arrived in London to find my upcoming travel plans to places like Great Malvern & Edinburgh about to be disrupted (hello Rail strike!). Luckily, they were not in the end. yes, flying would have been cheaper but this time it was about the journey! there was a festival in london with a bunch of people into japanese bondage. it was fun. i skipped a fetish party to go see the Royal Philharmonic play StarWars with [livejournal.com profile] craigclare  and it was awesome (but not as awesome as my bday party). Went with [livejournal.com profile] ynl  to see the Van Doesburg avant-garde exhibit at the Tate (and that was awesome too). Spent some time in Worchestershire then headed up to Scotland where I discovered my white latex catsuit covered in stains (lesson: no more lending my shit out to bitches). Then I flew to Amsterdam. The day after my flight trouble erupted! (hello Eyjafjallajokull! btw, if you're actually reading this and you do that thing where you read to yourself but just tripped, here's a little hand: “AY-yah-fyah-lah-YOH-kuul.”) Amsterdam was super and i got to perform with [livejournal.com profile] mirja  at Wasteland. The volcano really screwed stuff up. I took a train to Dusseldorf to catch my flight to Vienna (while constantly keeping track of updates). After checking in to my flight and waiting around to board, it was canceled. I spent too much money cuz of the damn volcano. But eventually flew to Vienna. Then ended up in Bologna. And then finally back to London.

May - Torture Garden Bday - performed with Satomi one night, then the following night had an awesome show with SukaOff. It was awesome (like many other things this year). I went to Holloway Rd to do some shopping and some fucktart FedEx man stole my phone. I chased after him. He got in trouble. Flew to Hamburg for the GermanFetishBall & stayed with [livejournal.com profile] tatsu_otoko  a bit. It was a nice visit! Performed with Amrita (it was super fun) and ran around with [livejournal.com profile] ropemarks  & [livejournal.com profile] sleek_imager  & other friends a bunch! Hung out in the Hamburg airport lounge a little longer than i wanted to but figured out how to spend the time wisely. (Hello again, Icelandic volcano). Flew to Houston (Hello, BritishAirways strike, AGAIN) for the Texas FetishBall & performed 2 shows with Athena Fatale. Hot weather & awesome relaxation time & good hanging out time too! Then back to London for a bit so I could pack for Rome!

June - the last nite of the TG/Ritual Rome party I performed. It was fun too. It was a great weekend even though doing this one performance finally turned me off on the idea of performing anymore. Doing shows like this for so little compensation is just frustrating. I can't work the days after due to soreness and marks. yeah. So this actually turned out to be one of my last show in the EU. I headed up north via train and spent time around northern italy: Ferrara, Modena, Asti.  Even went to this nudist place which was actually very nice (and kick ass weather!). Eventually, back to Vienna, then back to London. Watched a massive amount of World Cup games. I barely missed any!  Saw ron athey discussion with [livejournal.com profile] ynl  which was cool. [livejournal.com profile] gurlesque  was there too. and then back to Texas (Yes, again! Yes, again British Airways issues!) Did a lot of things in Dallas. Performed with [livejournal.com profile] allenfalkner  and then a couple of days later he suspended me. we also did more stuff. Also remembered [livejournal.com profile] olmendoza 's birthday - or what would have been his birthday.

July - ROAD TRIP!!! with Samar. Headed north to Eureka, and then north again. RAWR.Got covered in goo on the beach while wearing BritishPetroleum colours. Flew to San Diego and then journeyed to Ensenada (Mexico-land) to jump on a fucking boat. (do i need to mention the awesome?) Spent ONE - TWO - THREE - FOUR - FIVE - SIX & SEVEN days on the Nautilus Explorer and went diving just about every day! RAWRRRR. Then, gorgeous days spent in San Diego and ComicCon just happened to be around at the same time as was [livejournal.com profile] sissystck  [livejournal.com profile] corruptmorals  and [livejournal.com profile] stevedietgoedde  !


That's good enough for now.

I attempted to fly from DUS to VIE on april 20th.
the flight was canceled in the end and I had to fly out the next morning.

I don't think i've seen an airport so quiet - except for some crazy 4am type of thing.
but then, even at that hour, it doesn't have the same feel of emptiness.

I'm flying back to London on 31 March
then after a bit of thought, I realized I'd take the train up from London to Edinburgh instead of flying. Should be a nice trip that way.
Most likely on the 5th of April.

I think I'll start booking those dates now if possible.
