Dear Readers...
I'm currently working on a longer newsletter to catch you up on my recent adventures... but because I have some writing deadlines to meet, I'm not going to get that out to you today as I had hoped... There are, however, some cool stuff going on this weekend (even tonight) so I just want to fire that off before it's too late...

peace

Here is a link to film's Web site: http://www.secretarythemovie.com/
(Midori's side note: I saw this two nights ago in San Francisco. It's really a fun little movie. Very kinky and quite sexy... Got me all hot!)

Pervy Contest - win tickets!
Win free tickets to see "Secretary" for viewing in San Francisco, San Jose, Sacramento and Las Vegas.
I have a few tickets given to me by the film company, so I'm giving them away to my readers for free... but you'll have to "earn" it... *ewg* here's what you need to do.
1. go to my yahoo group at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/divamidori/
2. write a short kinky poem... kinky haiku's get bonus points.. and post it.
3. The results will be put through a complex matrix and programs on a bank of computers, then judged by Nobel prize winning poets and confirmed by Tibetan monks.... ok, so actually my silly self and the other group moderators will decide by being totally subjective while flexing our arbitrary dictatorial muscles. Humor gets bonus points. Feedback from other group members may sway our decisions.
4. We'll post who's work we like... and winners will let us know via private e-mail who to mail it to. (This means that you can win it for someone else too!)
Each ticket admits two.

Samples of kinky haiku..... as written by Elizabeth Stewart, BoDC (Bitch of Dupont Circle) and senior sister of the DC house of PDK leather sorority...

Topping From Bottom:
Hurt me, ya big lug
I said: Hurt me, ya big lug
Harder, lame sissy

Femme's Revenge:
Fishnets so damn sexy
You like them, you wear them, boy
Searing waffle feet

Pony Play:
Toss your fine mane, steed
Swish proudly your buttplug tail
Pull my cart, you freak
