exxxotica Dallas

There’s a lot of SEXual stuff comin’ to town..it’s a SEXpo, and a bunch of non-sexual prudes in Dallas are up in arms, worried, concerned and you know what I say? …. GTFOH!! and GO AWAY!!

Sex is normal, sex should be fun, sex is healthy, sex makes you comfortable in your own skin, and it should be practiced safely!

Exxxotica, a three-day gathering that bills itself as the “largest adult event in the USA dedicated to love & sex,” kicks off in Dallas on Aug. 7. Ladies are free on FRIDAY! It offers seminars on sex, fetish performances, question-and-answer sessions about the commercial sex industry and meet-and-greets with dozens of porn stars. It’s The Largest Adult Event in the USA Dedicated to Love & Sex. This event was created for adults who are looking for something Sexy, something Fun, and something Different. source: Dallas NewseXXXoticaexpo.com

It was a little bit of a challenge finding an open minded g/f to go, but that just means I need to change my circle — I certainly would have gone by myself anyway…. but I did find someone to go with me. LADIES GET YOUR TIX!

Placing the Proverbial Foot Up My ‘Whoo-Hoo’: Networking Edition

This week was ripe with networking opportunities and they were great! I love traction. Check the tweets:

I met this contact @ the Coffee House Cafe in Dallas — it mind-as-well been Chicago to me (my suggestion) ;-); I wanted to be accommodating to my new contact. In addition, I am certainly open to exploring new venues to learn the city.

I met this contact at Paradise Bakery in Dallas — and he purposefully wanted to meet at this location. Why? Because it’s a networking, business professional mecca! So much so, that after our meeting — I stayed there and just took in the atmosphere w/ my laptop and Milwaukee friend (quite a few other Wisconsinites relocated here as well). And as soon as my Milwaukee friend walked in, someone approached him — mistaken identity.

My New Contacts STRONG TIES to Packer Nation is nostalgic

This new contact that I met was stellar — not only was he a Green Bay Packers fan, but he has STRONG ties to Packer Nation, Summerfest and Wisconsin! Great guy, and I look forward to getting to know him, and my new cultivating network here in Dallas. How I met this contact was via another contact that I met at After Work Network, after our conversation he suggested this new contact (this is how it works). My new contact suggested that I attend a job focus group — I did and it was stellar — he’s one of the break out group facilitators. The group gave me a wonderful first impression. Its structure, the friendly and helpful group members, the format in which they help you find job opportunities, and the venue was so welcoming. I’ll be back next week!

My Packers contact came to play!!

PACKERS CONTACT: “Do you have your resume?”

ME: “ahhh… No, not a tangible copy. I was hoping to just introduce myself to you, build a rapport.” “I didn’t come with the intent of asking you for a job, or asking you to place my resume in front of someone who can get me a job.”

LATER ON

PACKERS CONTACT: “…see that guy over there?” “…he’s was a CMO at XYZ Company, and now he’s running his own business.” “…don’t you think he’ll know someone in your field, and is also in a position to potentially place you in a role?”

ME: “ahh… yeah.”

PACKERS CONTACT: “…come on. get your business cards… I’m going to introduce you.”

ME: “ooh …okay.” GAME FACE ON

One CMO, CEO, CFO, and friendly staffers later …my business cards were gone.

My contact had introduced me to a few other people at Paradise Bakery. I had my business cards, but I didn’t come prepared to network on that level. I didn’t come prepared to network LIKE THAT! My contact certainly taught me a lesson in tactical and assertive networking, and to always be prepared. Lesson Learned

Exercising Movements Increases Your Creativity …Yoga Got My Creative Juices Flowing In 68 Degrees

Yoga In The Park Klyde Warren Park

Yoga In The Park @KlydeWarrenPark

I read an article recently that stated “If you want to kick start your creativity: do some yoga.” I’ve always enjoyed doing Pilates and Yoga as my preference for a relaxation exercise, and today I found an opportunity that got me back to my relaxation roots.

On Sunday, December 1, 2013 in Dallas, Tex. — a beautiful 68-70 degrees — I participated in @KlydeWarrenPark‘s FREE Yoga Class Session. These sessions, which will continue until, I don’t know when (weather pending) ..was relaxing and stellar. Once we got started, I was reminded that I was just a little rusty, because I haven’t participated in Yoga or Pilates in a while, but I was still limber enough to keep up with the yoga-esqe poses and movements. My only disappointment of the session — was that we didn’t do my favorite Tree Pose! 😀 My Yoga instructor for the morning was Toyha from Exhale Spa — Toyha was great, professional, friendly, and just an all around joy to spend the morning with; amid a plot full of other strangers.

It would have been nice to go with some girlfriends or guyfriends, but I’m hopeful that I’ll meet some folks here soon in Dallas. Now don’t mistake me, I am comfortable in my own skin, enough to venture out by myself, in my new city.

Afterward, I grabbed my complimentary Dallas Morning Newspaper, — explore walked to Starbucks-and-Back (Pumpkin Spice Latte) — sat on a park bench — read my newspaper — and immersed myself into the character and atmosphere of Klyde Warren Park; in now, what was 75 degrees on a sunny Dallas December morning.

My Walk @ Starbucks ...

My Walk to Starbucks …

The food trucks began to populate their spaces, more families began to fill the park, music from a street performer now permeated the environment with his exotic drums — it… was… relaxing…, to just sit and take it all in. I walked around to explore the park a little more, wondering about all of the other tangible and/or intangible amenities it offered. …I’ll definitely be back.

I enjoyed the sunny, calm, yet mildly-windy day outside.

I enjoyed that moment… …and I look forward to more adventures.
