A High Tea, a M/M reading threesome & a BDSM surprise


It felt like ages ago since Janna (Erotromreader) and I got together and talked some serious smut, preferably M/M smut :) So we e-mailed, nailed a date (October 29th) and brainstormed on where to go and what to do. We just wanted to sit our behinds in a chair and talk the hours away so I thought a high tea would be just the thing. We had it all figured out until Janna got acquainted with Lis, a fellow M/M lover who happened to live in the city we were going to, this is where a twosome became a threesome and I looked forward to meeting Lis as well!

Of course at the central station of Utrecht I was looking at peeps and totally didn´t recognize Janna at first *headdesk*but Janna found me and from that moment we talked a mile-a-minute. We did as we said, we got to the Brothers café, we sat down and we didn’t get up for five and a half hours. Only an hour in to our conversation did Lis walk up to us and I think the employee’s at Brothers café got a taste from the force of book loving gals in conversation. We talked from DRM on e-books, Dutch publishers and their adjustment to e-books – or better said, lack thereof, the delaying of book releases in Europe but of course lots and lots of M/M smut too. We talked favorites, firsts and what’s on the e-reader. In the mean time we changed tables for our high tea and next to the inspiring convo’s we had our taste buds acquainted with fantastic tasting scones, sandwiches, éclairs, brownies, quiches and more. I had a great time and before we knew it, it was around five thirty PM, time to ask for the check since high tea was technically over at four thirty PM.

Lis walked us to the station, we said our goodbye’s with the promise of a new date in the near future. Janna and I decided to get a drink while waiting on our trains and that where she let me play with her shiny new precious – her iPad. Personally I’m really not a gadget person, some things just need to get the job done but I don’t need all the extra’s that come along with it. But the iPad, oh my, Janna knew what to present me with; apps of bookcases, the options how to read an e-book but also watch vids, make notes and I have to tell you, I was thoroughly seduced! Janna definitely was in her evil pimp mode *grin*

I don’t know how the next bit of news came in to the conversations but I could hug the life outta Janna for giving it to me. I know it was about favorite BDSM series. Or how a series, centered around the same couple, can give such incredible depth in development, even though each book is between 100-200 pages. One of my all time favorite is Chris Owen and Jodi Payne’s DEVIATION series and this is where Janna gave me a whopper of a surprise – book #5 in this series was recently released. SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

Can you all guess what I did when I got home? LOL

It was an eventful day with a few new ideas and adventures in the works and when I got home I was tired but smiling ear to ear. Janna, it is always a pleasure hooking up with you, may many more dates follow and Lis, I foresee many more real life book talks *grin*

Did anyone else ever get to meet bloggy friends in real life? And did you feel that instant connection and hit it off with so much fun and laughter? Please share the stories :)

  6. Hi Aurian - I'm glad to hear you and Freya are still going strong!! I actually thought I recognized Freya at Utrecht CS friday but at the last minute I remembered her losing a lot of weight so passed on talking to the woman LOL And where we had a high tea was fabulous Aurian, you really will have a fab time there. It's called stadscafe Broers and the high tea is €14.90 with the option to expand it. Here's the url: http://www.stadscafe-broers.nl/

    Click on the option "groepen" and then choose the option high tea. There you will see what you're getting for the €14.90 and what you can choose to add to the high tea. Believe me, we added a mini sandwich or two since the basis of the high tea is very sweet but we were all stuffed. Awesome ambiance there too so have fun!!!
