Bad news and good news

Posted in Blogging, Websites, Work at 1:17 pm by admin

The bad news is tht this blog got broken when I upgraded the php on my site from 4 to 5 a week or so ago. Totally, totally sucks having to install new blogs, import old posts and then customize the blogs so they have the same functionality as my old blogs.

The good news is that embedded flash video now works! So the majority of videos can be watched right here, without clicking any links. This includes YouTube and any other video services that provide link-embedding code.

I am pleased. Visit often, I’m going to be updating frequently.

How do I keep it from getting boring?

Mistress Quattrano,

While I’m not really a bottom kind of person, I enjoyed a full visit to your site/blog. I have a question (which I’m sure you’ve gotten a million times) that I hope you’ll have time to answer. If your business entails often following a pretty set pattern/drama/fantasy (i.e., mistress principal) how do you not get bored at work? I do slightly different variations of my job (which I really like, mind you) every day and I get bored. One of my favorite things to do is ask people about what they do (as they are often most passionate and articulate about it) so why not you? Thanks for your time and best wishes,

Dear Curious,

I’m not performing a rote task, like factory assembly. As far as the same scenario getting overused until it is lifeless, in fact I have had the opposite experience. What happens in the Principal’s office I have done so many times that it has become extremely well developed, and second nature to me. I can really take it further and enjoy it a lot.

While I usually start from the same point, there are many variables that are not within my control, such as the customer’s preferences and his reactions. I am not one of those “cookie cutter domination experience” phone Mistresses. This is fantasy roleplay. I try to give each customer an exciting experience, and depending on a lot of things, it still is often very challenging. I still get a charge out of a new customer starting uncertain what to expect and finding himself surprised and very pleased at the end.

What I don’t like is trying to weave an experience for a guy who is silent, unresponsive. With no feedback, it is impossible to tell how he is reacting and which way I should take it, and the call can seem interminable. I have to keep asking him, “Are you doing ok?” because I can’t tell if I’m boring him to sleep.

Dear Principal,

As I expected, you offered a cogent and thought-provoking answer. I’ll confess that I wasn’t aware that there were cookie cutter phone mistresses (although, if I’d thought about it…). I appreciate your quick answer to a silly question. You’ve confirmed my theories regarding people and the jobs they’re passionate about. Without a touch of sarcasm, I’m glad you’ve found work you enjoy. Most people don’t get that chance. I’m also comforted by the degree to which you seem to appreciate the vulnerabilities your clients bring to the table (desk?). Your answer seems to step a little beyond the traditional “customer service” boilerplate. I would expect that many of them crave a level of intimacy that goes beyond basic physical release and you seem to respect that.

Thank you again for your answer and all the best.

Dear Curious,

My observation about cookie cutter phone mistresses is hearsay, based on what customers have told me about their experiences with others they have called. In this business we must find our own way, as there is hardly a training program showing the many possible ways to take a call.Having thought further about your question, I realize I have left out something. I love my work, and it’s not always just a matter of intellectual satisfaction. The fact is I get a charge out of being respectfully addressed as “Goddess”, and much more than that is the feeling I get when a guy yells out (as instructed) while cumming, “Oh, Goddess!” That’s priceless.

The Principal
