Merry Christmas!

This is the message of Christmas:
We are never alone.
~Taylor Caldwell

I’m not a religious person, I’m spiritual.  “O Holy Night” is my favorite Christmas carol. It's not the whole "Christ" thing, I just like the song. Josh Groban sings it very well.  He’s also okay to look at, in a goofy-sweet kind of way.

May each and every one of you have the best Christmas ever and I hope that the New Year will bring wonderful things for all of us.  Thank you for reading my blog and sharing your thoughts with me.  I always feel like I’ve been given a special gift when I get comments on something I’ve written and/or shared with you.

Now let’s drink and toast our friends then drink some more and curse praise the miserable bastards our dear family members!

Show A Little Love, Please

Whether you observe Christmas, Yule, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, or another tradition, they all are a celebratory holiday. This time of year is for joy, reflection, peace, love, rebirth, happiness. It's a time when families come together. It's a time when we can look at the past year and remember the goodness while forgetting the bad. We look forward to the new year with hope. It's a good time of year.

It's also a time when we have our purse strings tugged along with our heart strings. We are asked for donations to help a myriad of people, animals and causes. We also want to be able to show our love and appreciation for our parents, siblings, children, friends – the list goes on and on. We are living in difficult financial times and no matter how big our hearts are our purses are small. But I'm going to ask you to open your hearts and your wallets for a family that needs some extra love and support this holiday season.

At a time when happiness, hope and joy seem to be in the air around us, imagine how you would feel should your heart be ripped out and your soul destroyed? Please go HERE to read about the tragic loss that this family has experienced and then go HERE to learn about a raffle in support of Riley's family.

Can you forgo a latte this week? Maybe pass up dessert at lunch? Wouldn't donating to this family instead of a useless Secret Santa gift be more rewarding? ANYTHING you can donate will make a difference in helping defray the costs of something no parent should ever have to do – bury their child.

Award - 7 Things About Me

I was given this award by Red Shoe's and I'm honored. He is a man that appreciates fine footwear as much as I do. I have to tell you seven things about me and then pass the award to seven other bloggers that I'd like to know more about!

Black ~ Basic black is a color that goes with everything and is the all time favorite of zombies everywhere. I’m a huge fan of Zombies, black, goth, horror, vampires, creepy, skulls ... well, you get the idea.

White ~ Another basic wardrobe necessity. I laugh in the face of fashion and will wear these well after Labor Day. I dress to the beat of a different drummer. I am NOT a slave to fashion. 

Goth Green ~ I like the color green. And, again, black. Green is the color of prosperity and hope.  Let's just say I hope I get prosperous - damn soon!

Flames ~ I’m artistic and I love tattoos. I also hope to go out in a blaze of glory.  No regrets - chocolate in one hand, Guinness in the other, in bed with a tireless studly man!

Pink ~ I participate in the Susan G. Komen Race (walk) For the Cure every January in West Palm Beach with my daughter. She’s a breast cancer survivor. I wear these Cons every year.

Christmas ~ I like Christmas. Not as much as Halloween but there’s always more cookies at Christmas. I love me some cookies, especially Peanut Butter Kiss cookies made my own special way.

Silver ~ Not Chuck Taylors but still Converse. I LOVE sparkly things!  But not tastless sparklies. Diamonds are the preferred sparkle.

There you have 7 things about me.  Fascinating, isn't it?   Also, since I do things differently, I can't pick 7 people.  Please feel free to take the award and write 7 things about yourself.  Let me know when you do!  'Cause I'm nosey like that.

Pardon Me

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- The Doors singer Jim Morrison will get a posthumous pardon for an indecent exposure conviction in Florida after Gov. Charlie Crist got a commitment for enough votes from other members of the state's Board of Executive Clemency to approve it.

Morrison was appealing the conviction when he was found dead in a Paris bathtub in 1971. The meeting Thursday comes a day after the singer would have turned 67.

Crist can't issue a pardon on his own. He and the three-member Cabinet serve as the Clemency Board. Approval is required by the governor and at least two other members.

The did-he-or-didn't-he debate over what happened at the Miami concert was revived by Crist's interest in the case. The surviving band members say a drunken Morrison teased the crowd, but never exposed himself.
"It never actually happened. It was mass hypnosis," said Ray Manzarek, The Doors' keyboard player.
Manzarek and guitarist Robby Krieger said Morrison's behavior was influenced by an acting troupe that disrobed during plays.

"He was just doing a mind trip - as they would say - a mind trip on the audience and they totally fell for it," Manzarek said.

Manzarek said Morrison was far drunker than usual, to the point where they questioned whether he should go on stage.

Gov. Crist began considering a pardon for Morrison in 2007 at the at the urging of a fan. He says he has doubts about whether Morrison actually exposed himself during the rowdy concert March 1, 1969. Morrison was convicted of public profanity and indecent exposure and sentenced to six months in jail and a $500 fine.

The case has become murkier with the passage of years. Morrison's defense attorney said recently that the singer received a fair trial with credible witnesses on both sides, and fans who were at the show have differing recollections.

Here's what most people agree on: The Doors went on stage late, the Dinner Key Auditorium was oversold and wasn't air conditioned. Morrison was drunk and stopped in the middle of songs with an anti-authority, profanity-riddled rant.

A live lamb was brought on stage at one point, and Morrison also grabbed a police officer's hat and threw it in the crowd. The singer took off his shirt and fiddled with his belt, and fans poured onto the stage.
"There were 100 photos offered in evidence at the trial, photos of everything - Jim with the lamb, Jim with the hat, on the stage collapsing, riot in the audience. Not one photo of Jim's magnificent member," said Manzarek.

A pardon won't change Morrison's image, but it will right a wrong, Manzarek and Krieger said.
"Jim's legacy is one of Dionysian madness and frenzy and of a chaotic American poet. I don't think that the Miami episode has altered his image one iota," Manzarek said.

Krieger added: "Nobody would like to have that charge hanging over their head even if they are dead. I'm sure his family would be happy to see that go, especially since it never happened."
There are fans who still swear Morrison exposed himself.

"He actually unzipped and pulled his pants down a little bit, enough where you can see everything. I do remember being shocked when that happened, and definitely it happened," said Lee Winer, 56, who now lives north of San Francisco. "I can still picture it like it was yesterday."

Others disagree. Helene Davis of Miami said she was an 18-year-old in the front row of the concert with a friend. She said Morrison teased the crowd by pretending he was going to unzip his pants, but never actually exposed himself.

"We were watching and waiting because it was obvious that's where he was going with it," Davis said. "I just remembered thinking, 'Yes, it's going to happen! It's going happen! It's going to happen!' And it never did."

Cans for Comments - Something A Little Different

Over at This Thing Called Our Life, the lovely blogger is doing something called "Cans For Comments".  She and some other writers are going to donate cans of food to needy families for each comment they get on their blog posts up until December 25.  Cool, right?

I thought I'd do the same but with a different spin.  *You knew I'd be different.*  So, from December 1 through December 31, I'm going to donate a can of dog or cat food to a local NO KILL animal shelter called, DOGS AND CATS FOREVER.

Please make legit comments and tell your friends.  The animals will thank you!
And, I'll thank you, too!

Cyber Monday - Pirates Rocket Vibe Review

If you haven’t realized it by now, let me tell you that I love unusual items.  My taste runs from kitschy to bizarre to morbid to weird.  This is my standard to most things including sex toys.  Why have a plain old pink vibrator with no personality when you can have something like the Pirates Rocket Vibrator?  Look how pretty and wild it is!  It’s got tattoos and rhinestones for Pete’s sake!  And not only does it look gorgeous, it works fabulously! BABELAND knows I covet the strange and has graciously sent this vibe to me.

The Pirates Rocket Vibrator is made of ABS hard plastic, it’s smooth and silky.  Phthalate free. It’s 8” long by 1 ¼” diameter,  6 ½” are insertable.  The vibe runs on two C batteries, not included.  It also comes with a sweet, satiny drawstring storage bag.

I usually don't care much for a straight vibe but I really like this one.  It could be because the weight of the 2 C batteries give its some heft and allows for more powerful vibrations than the usual couple of AA's. The battery compartment is simple to open and the batteries are dropped in – easy peasy! I definitely liked that I felt “full” when I inserted the vibrator. The control button is a breeze to find and you can scroll through the 5 (five) different functions with ease. There are 3 continuous vibrating selections – low, medium, high and two staggered vibrating selections, slower and faster (my description).

I used a little bit of lube before inserting the vibe and after running through the functions settled on the steady, fast vibrations. I've got a g-spot somewhere but I can't orgasm solely through vaginal stimulation however I liked that I got some really strong feelings with this vibe. The silky skin allows for smooth thrusting and the “rhinestones” add good traction. After enjoying the vibes alone for awhile, I added the Pirates Pendant Vibe to my clit for a truly satisfying orgasm! It was totally rockin'!

The Pirates Rocket Vibe cleans up very easily. I'd be careful about getting too much of anything on the rhinestones but the package does say the vibrator is “splash proof”.

This is not only a very original and unique vibrator but it actually is one you'll want to use – again and again! Remember, this would be a really great stocking stuffer! *wink, wink*

Thankful, but ...

I have strong doubts that the first Thanksgiving even remotely resembled the "history" I was told in second grade.  But considering that (when it comes to holidays) mainstream America's traditions tend to be over-eating, shopping, or getting drunk, I suppose it's a miracle that the concept of giving thanks even surfaces at all.  
~Ellen Orleans

Because I am me, I have to add a “but …” to most everything that I’m thankful for.  Optimistic-Pessimists do that.

I’m thankful for my ex-family but my niece’s wife needs a good punch to the head and my ex-MIL needs to stop being such a fucking martyr.

I’m thankful for my family but my sister needs to get a fucking grip that money isn’t GOD!

I’m thankful that I have a job but why does it have to be so mind numbingly boring?

I’m thankful for my friends but one needs to do something about her alcoholism, one needs to realize I’m never, ever going to sell her fucking food supplement and I wish one didn't have to suffer so much with health problems.

I’m thankful that I’ve started a good exercise program but wonder when I’ll not have to fight with myself to go.

I’m thankful to live in America but the way the country is going to hell in a hand basket needs to change. Soon.

I’m thankful that right now, I still have a home but I wish Bank of America would fall into a sinkhole and proceed directly to HELL!

I’m thankful that my children (especially my daughter) are healthy and seemingly happy. I thankful that Mulder also has a job. I’m thankful that although I don’t have bags of money lying around, I can give a little to others in need.  I’m thankful that I’m healthy. I'm thankful to FASCINATIONS and for choosing me the winner of the $50.00 gift card for donating to SCARLETEEN.  I’m also very thankful that I have readers and followers like YOU.  No buts for these.

Happy We-Stole-Your-Land-and-Killed-Your-People Day!

What My Mother Said ...

aag has been hosting the 2010 Scarleteen Sex-Ed Blog Carnival.Being "a woman of a certain age" my sex education was most likely very different from most participants but I think each and every one of us agree that SCARLETEEN, must remain available to every single person that needs/wants it.

On the eve of my wedding in 1973, my mother gave me her one and only “sex talk”.  She told me to, “Use the Margaret Sanger method of birth control.”  As a 19 year-old that had visited Planned Parenthood three years earlier for birth control pills, I just nodded and smiled.  I had no idea who Margaret Sanger was or what “method” she had to avoid contraception.

Back then, the sexual revolution was just beginning.  There was no internet or even open discussion of sex, sexuality or sexual orientation. “Health” class in school was painful for both the teacher and students. It wasn’t very enlightening.  Learning about sex was trial and error.  Before HIV/Aids, some “errors” were taken care of with shame and antibiotics. Others were resolved quietly, quickly and without any discussion whatsoever.  Roe v. Wade had just been passed but pregnancy outside of marriage was treated as a contagious disease and if someone had an abortion, it was talked about in hushed, horrified tones.

Most of our sexual knowledge, such as it was, came from friends, older siblings, the Encyclopedia Britannica, romance novels, True Story magazines and our own experimentation.  Being a good researcher with an inquiring mind and healthy curiosity was what got most of us through our hormonal teen years and unto adulthood.  Unfortunately, many of us, struggled with “sex talks” when our own children appeared on the scene.

When my first child was born in 1977, I knew that I wasn’t going to wait until she was almost an adult to start discussing sex with her.  I wanted her to be informed and prepared well before her first sexual experience.  I also knew that she would want a way to find out things for herself to expand her knowledge.  With limited resources, still only books and discussion, I wanted to be sure she got the correct information and not the “street” stuff I’d heard when I was growing up.  The two books I used as bibles were, “Woman’s Body – An Owners Manual” and “Our Bodies, Ourselves”.  I read them for guidance and knowledge for myself and my daughter and let her read them later on.  While these books along with others, made talking to my child about maturing and sex easier, I know it wasn’t a perfect solution.  My daughter is now married herself and is trying to get pregnant which is one reason I’m supporting and promoting, SCARLETEEN.

While most of my generation has raised their children, their grandchildren can benefit from the multitude of information presented by Scarleteen.  It’s an invaluable resource for not just for “tweens”, teens and young adults but for their parents, guardians, and grandparents.  In investigating Scarleteen, I’ve even learned some things!  I would have been much more well informed I would have been as a teenager and mother if this website would have been available to me.  I have given the link to my daughter and my son.  He’s had his sex talks with both me and his father but as a man in his ‘20’s, I still think Scarleteen will expand his knowledge of himself and his sexuality. 

 Parents worry about their child's education, being informed sexually is an extremely important part of any child's full life education. Scarleteen needs YOUR support. Please donate to keep this invaluable resource on the 'net for you, your children and their children.

A Question? For Y'all

My son has finally moved out on his own. (Can I get an AMEN!) He also has a conundrum so I thought I'd ask my readers for their opinion.

Bubba is not perfect but he's not totally hopeless either. He has a lot to learn about living on his own, managing money and managing his partying. One of the HUGE mistakes I made in child rearing is that I wasn't one of those Suzy Homemaker mothers that let the kids help in the kitchen or make attempts at cleaning, etc. I was a working mother and I just didn't have the time or patience. Anyway, my son's dilemma has nothing to do with that other than his room might terrify potential bed-mates if he keeps it the way he did at home. I've told him this and he knows HOW to keep things neat and tidy it's just WILL he.

His problem is that he is attracted to a friends sister. She is attracted to him. They've hooked up and have slept together. He is worried that his friend is going to be angry. All of my son's male friends have told him that dating and sleeping with his friend's sister is, and I quote, “Fucked up!” I don't understand why. I know I'm his mother but I've seen him with his girlfriends, he's very caring and loving. He never cheated on a girlfriend, he takes them out to dinner and he pays, he buys gifts and is willing to go to the mall with them. I just don't get why it would be a problem. When I was young, dating friends brothers or sisters was no big deal.

What do y'all think?

Update ~ CrossFit is going well. Even my toes hurt. I do have to convince myself everyday to actually go there because I haven't hit that “work out high” everyone talks about. I'm extremely awkward but have been assured that I'll improve with time. Pray for me

Maybe ...

by Sick Puppies

Maybe I'm a dreamer
Maybe I'm misunderstood
Maybe you're not seeing the side of me you should
Maybe I'm crazy
(Maybe I'm crazy)
Maybe I'm the only one
(Maybe I'm the only one)
Maybe I'm just out of touch
Maybe I've just had enough

Maybe it's time to change
And leave it all behind
I've never been one to walk alone
I've always been scared to try
So why does it feel so wrong
To reach for something more
To wanna live a better life
What am I waiting for?
'Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it's time to change

Maybe it's hopeless
(Maybe it's hopeless)
Maybe I should just give up
(Maybe I should just give up)
What if I can't trust myself?
What if I just need some help?

Maybe it's time to change
And leave it all behind
I've never been one to walk alone
I've always been scared to try
So why does it feel so wrong
To reach for something more
To wanna live a better life
What am I waiting for?
'Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it's time to change

And maybe it's time to change
And leave it all behind
I've never been one to walk alone
I've always been scared to try

And maybe it's time to change
And leave it all behind
I've never been one to walk alone
I've always been scared to try
So why does it feel so wrong
To reach for something more
To wanna live a better life
What am I waiting for?
'Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it's time to change
'Cause nothing stays the same
Maybe it's time to change

An Arachnid With Attitude

I don't drink to excess. A passel of alcoholics in the family put me on the far side of caution. But every once in awhile, I do drink enough to get lightly toasted. Recently I discovered a hard cider that is just too scrumptious and a couple of Fridays ago, I overindulged.

In my somewhat woozy state, I took my three dogs out about 1:00 AM for their evening bathroom break. While I was wandering with them, I almost became entangled in the absolutely most enormous spider web I'd ever seen! It had to be at least 7 feet across. Smack in the center was a big, fat spider who I just know was giving me a spidery stink-eye because she was going to be majorly pissed that I'd wrecked that killing/eating trap that she'd set up in my yard. The old saying that says that angels watch over drunks and fools was true that night because I did stop just short of being covered in sticky webbing. Even in that hard cider haze, that fucking web was eerily stunning there in the moonlight, swaying ever so slightly in the early morning breeze. I knew I wanted to take a picture of it but figured that it would be better with a bit more light 'cause my camera sucks at night shots.

Saturday morning, I was up early. I can't say I was bright. Anyone who has spent the night with me knows that I'm definitely NOT a morning person. I required mass quantities of caffeine and nicotine in order for my pathetic brain cells to start sparking. As I sat on the porch drinking coffee and smoking, I looked over to the spot where the web was last night thinking that now would be the time to capture it for posterity. And it wasn't there! I couldn't believe it! I went outside to the spot and NOTHING! Not a trace of web and not a hint of that mega-spider anywhere! I thoroughly inspected the nasty Bird of Paradise it was anchored to on the left and the pineapple palm it was attached to on the right … zip, nada, zilch … GONE! Okay, I thought, I burnt my toast last night and imaged the whole thing. I figured that hard cider was one of those alcoholic drinks that just messed with my head. As I'm wont to do, I forgot about the web and spider about 10 minutes later.

Saturday night, I venture out to the side yard with the dogs again. And, Bob's your uncle! Isn't that damn spider complete with the huge web back! The pictures you see here are proof that I wasn't having flashbacks to the '60's or hallucinations, it was REAL! Can you fucking believe the size of this web? And don't you know, Sunday morning it was gone again. Without a trace!

The spider is a nocturnal orb weaver. There are apparently many types of orb weavers. This particular one comes out at dark, spins the web to trap all the night bugs (and birds and small animals!) then packs up before dawn until the next evening. Cool, huh? Sunday night, me and Mulder actually caught the bitch weaving the web! Fascinating. She didn't think so I guess because she never came back. Pictures, dogs and nosy people didn't agree with her. Touchy bitch for a spider.

It was three years ago today ...

that I started writing this blog.

I discovered blogging through a Google Alert for "Nickelback".  Always Aroused Girl (aag) quoted some Nickelback lyrics on her blog, I clicked the link and was fascinated.  I read her archives in a couple of days then began following her links to read some other wonderful bloggers.  aag has remained a favorite of mine. "The Sensuous Libertine", was another.  Sadly, Cherri's blog ended as mine began.  I've had ups and downs, happiness and sadness these past three years but I am always happy that there are people out there in cyberspace that read my blog.  Your comments make me laugh, think, cry, get pissed off sometimes, blush, but always are precious to me.  I never would've thunk that anyone would have give a shit about anything that I have to say - but y'all do!  Fucking AMAZING!

Several of my favorite bloggers, along with Cherri have gone away.  Each one that leaves breaks my heart. I've added new favorites along the way, they are so special because they make me happy!  I always look forward to their posts because I know they will brighten my day. 

I've met a few of my fellow bloggers in person. How wonderful is that!?! I'd actually like to meet each and every one of you!  I want to THANK YOU! for being out there, for coming here to read and allowing me to read about you.  For being my friend - in person or virtual because to me, one is as good as the other.

My blog has changed and will continue to do so.  My only hope is that you'll continue to come here for whatever reason you do and you'll comment or email or whatever.  YOU have saved my live over and over again these past three years and I appreciate it.  So, THANK YOU!, again.

To honor my three years and you, here's pictures of my give-away.  One lucky commenter will win a copy of the book I'm going to review for BABELAND  (The Best of Best Women's Erotica 2) and a pendant watch that I've embellished.  It's antique brass tone on a 36" chain.  The watch has a smokey see-thru cover and I've added a key and (or course!) a skull charm!  Good Luck! I love you all!  I'll pick a winner through and announce the recipient on Wednesday.

I've not written much of quality here lately, sorry. Work has been crazy but on a good note, Susan is doing F-A-N-T-A-S-T-I-C! She's talking, has all her memory and is in rehab doing physical therapy. YAY! I've also been thinking, sometimes that's okay but other times it's just not something I should do. About two weeks ago a thought came up that I had to pick at like a scab and it plunged me deep, deep, deep into the abyss.

I do have several things I'm working on, about four of them for Real World. I also have some new items for review. One is a book of erotica! Let me tell you, some HOT stuff in there! *whew*  So, bear with me, my very appreciated readers. 'K?

My sweet, sexy Vincent sent me that picture! Hell! If Dust Bunnies can move on their own, let them fucking clean!  I'm off to Universal Studios Orlando for Halloween Horror Nights today.  If I don't get scared to death, I'll be back on Sunday - my THREE YEAR BLOGIVERSARY! Damn!

A Slippery Saturday - Lube Review

Recently, Amelia called me while she was on a date.  Yes, WHILE she was on a date.  She was experiencing her first encounter with vaginal dryness and panicked!  Personally, I’ve had the problem on and off for years so I always have lube handy.  I told Amelia that it wasn’t an unusual problem and that she should consider buying some lube.  She wasn’t sold on the idea and kept saying that this wasn’t something that happened to her.  Well, hasn’t it happened to all of us at least once?

Vaginal dryness can be caused by a number of reasons, not only that you aren’t aroused.  We all read about “getting wet”, “gushing”, “dripping”, etc., that doesn’t mean it happens every. single. time.  I can be reading extremely hot erotica and be dry as the Sahara.( But I could be fantasizing at work and suddenly become very wet!) It happens.  Hormonal changes as we age can contribute to dryness as can emotional state, mental state, alcohol consumption, childbirth, chemotherapy and/or radiation, allergy and cold medications, some anti-depressants (Hmmm …) and douching.  There is also a medical condition called Sjogern’s syndrome, an autoimmune disorder that attacks cells in the body that produce moisture.  If you have continued and severe vaginal dryness, consult a doctor.

Using lubrication isn't always for vaginal dryness, it's just something that it can be used for. Lube, in general, is a good thing to have, regardless of your moisture production. I have tried quite a few lubricants with varied results.  FASCINATIONS sent me some Silky Supreme WET Naturals lube to try and review a couple of weeks ago and I believe I’ve found a lube I LOVE! 

Here’s the tech stuff ~ Silky Supreme is a silicone based lube which means it cannot be used with silicone toys.  Anything else is okay. It comes in a 3.1 oz squeeze bottle that is not totally unattractive.  Glycerin, paraben and sugar free.  Contains Vitamin E and will stay wet even under water!  It’s odorless and colorless. 

My first test was with dildo.  I like the silky feel of the lube when I rubbed some on the toy. The product has the perfect amount of slip and glide, which also makes it nice for massage if you're so inclined. (Given the viscosity of the lube, I also think it would be perfect for anal sex.)   It’s not greasy and is very light.  I then added a little more to my inner labia and clit.  The dildo slid right in and the Silky Supreme stood up to vigorous play with the dildo and with the bullet on my clit, right through to orgasm.  Since it’s colorless, there was no staining from any that may have run off during my play session.  Clean up was easy for both me and the toys.  I didn’t have that “squishy” sensation that some of the heavier lubes leave behind.

The second try out was with a partner.  He liked how the Silky Supreme felt as I applied it to his erect penis.  It made giving a hand-job lovely! No drag but it allowed for some friction build-up and it lasted right through intercourse without having to apply additional amounts.  He was also happy that we only had to use a small amount and that his cock wasn’t sticky (in a bad way!) afterward. He also appreciated the odorless and almost tasteless aspect during his time going down on me.

Wet Naturals Silky Supreme is going to be my first choice in lubes from now on.  I'll be trying out the “stays wet in water” claim very soon.  I’ll also be looking at FASCINATIONS for the WET water based lubes for one to use with silicone toys.

Amelia will be getting a bottle of this lube from me because while the dryness may be something new to her, I’m pretty sure it won’t be the only time.  I really don’t want her calling me up in the middle of a date again because I’m sure THAT may have caused her date some erectile dysfunction but that's a whole other story!
