Well, NOTC 2009 has happened and a fantastic night it was too! Five of us girls going to the event (Mistress Switch, Nicole Reina, Jadie Reece, Cassie Hunter and myself) got ready together in a sea of make-up, shoes, clothing, champagne and exploded suitcases...

Nicole went dressed as Marylin Monroe, in a sexy white dress giving her a cleavage to die for! Jadie was looking like a blonde bombshell in a sexy black number and boots. Mistress Switch had gone to have her hair done professionally. It looked beautiful and so did she in a black corset, skirt and heels. Cassie Hunter was also looking uber sexy in seamed stockings and an unusual black and white corset. Me? I had decided to go for a school Ma'am look with glasses, black and white outfit and seamed stockings...

Given the number of our group and our transport arrangements (thank you so much Parker for driving us) we could not arrive together...

I showed up alone with minutes to spare before my class. Needless to say I had decided to teach Chemistry. I really enjoyed it, despite being very nervous at giving a dominant performance for an audience of my peers. I hope I can experience more in the future...

I had just the time to locate the bar and get a drink before Mistress Switch was to give her demonstration workshop on judicial caning. She commanded a huge audience for a subject she delivered excellently. All us girls were enlisted to demonstrate different caning techniques. Oh what fun...

Peter Birch and I then gave a workshop on unusual implements including a Bull's Pizzle, a Canadian prison strap and a flywhisk. Of course my long spell of pure domination could not last forever so I was not totally surprised when I was attacked by Peter Birch and given a few strokes with the Pizzle before I cried mercy...

Now came the highlight of the evening; the caning competition. Sadly Josie Harrison Marks could not be there due to illness, so Ish had me judge for her which was a pleasure and a real honour. Cassie did a fabulous job with her parner and a scenario based on the TV show countdown. Nicole as a first-time entrant was absolutely stunning as Marylin Monroe with her partner playing JFK. They received a well-deserved second place. Last but not least Mistress Switch and Parker received 3rd and 1st respectively as Henry Higgins and Eliza Dolittle. The win for Mistress Switch was so deserved. She gave the best performance of the evening.

It was a fantastic night. A huge thank you to Ishmael Skyes and the Firm for organising the evening. I cannot wait until next year...
