Because Stereotyping Men Totally Makes Your Case

July 28th, 2010 5 comments

The other day, on Twitter, Brit linked an article on My Fault, I’m Female.  It’s a feminist blog screaming about sexism and “rape culture”.  They accept stories from women everywhere about being the victim of our “male chauvinist society”.

Names and faces are kept private to protect the women involved, so posters are, essentially, anonymous.  Which gives the reader nothing to go on but the poster’s word.  But apparently, that’s all that’s needed when labeling someone a chauvinist.

From their bio: Read more…

I don’t know what to call this, so this is what you get.

Carrie used this image for a post I wrote over on Eden Cafe a while back. It totally fits, so I stole it.

My period must be coming.  Because I’m falling apart.

Yesterday, I ruined pancakes.  And that was just the beginning.  After ruining pancakes, I promptly ruined my eggs.  After ruining my eggs, I began to drop things, trip over stuff, knock joints on random corners…

To top it off, after writing about not having writer’s block, I ended up hopelessly blocked.  I had two off-site articles I wanted to at least start.  Had the topics already outlined in my mind.  And was able to write exactly jack, and shit.  I managed three forced paragraphs that sound forced, and clipped, and are not at all teeming with my usual wit and hilarity (Shut up.  I am so too funny.).  And I all but melted down.  Read more…

Procrastination FTL! Apple cider FTW!

GAH!

Sitting here fretting over not having a blog topic while I chat with my buds and glue myself to Hootsuite.  All the while not even realizing that I was giving myself a topic.

I feel like puking.  I made a resolution, within myself, yesterday, to stay on top of things.  The house, my writing, my time management… All of it.

As a beginning, I spent the day (yesterday) cleaning the house top to bottom.  Everything except the bedroom and the closets.  The bedroom and closets are going to require cash, patience and a day with no real direction.  And we’ll probably have a yard sale afterward.  So I’m hoping to get it done this weekend.  Yard sales are no fun when it’s cold and August is fast upon us.  Read more…

Product Review: Sex in the Shower Single Locking Foot Rest by Sportsheets

July 23rd, 2010 4 comments

Ooo, what’s that?

I had high hopes for the Sex in the Shower Single Locking Footrest by Sportsheets.  Probably too high.

What’d it come in?

That white and blue cardboard box to the right.  Not at all discreet.  But probably a toy called “Sex in the Shower” can’t be packaged discreetly anyway.

How’s it made?

This foot rest is made of white plastic and rubber.  It’s meant to suction cup to your wall by way of a lever beneath the part you rest your foot on.  Pull the lever up until it locks into place while holding the heavy duty rubber suction cup against a flat surface, and it should hold in place while you’re doing just about anything.  We’ll get to that “should” below.  Read more…

Ooo, what’s that?

That would be the Lia Magic Wand.  I can already see you size queens looking at her and rolling your eyes.  Wait till you hear what I have to say before dismissing her completely!

What’d it come in?

The Lia came in a molded plastic sleeve inside of a clear plastic box decorated with flowers and a description of the toy.

How’s it made?

Lia is nine inches (six and a quarter insertable) of pink, purple or white silicone (mine’s pink), with a diameter of an inch and a quarter.  It’s phthalates and latex free.  Bumpy and soft and firm.  And the tip curves ever so nicely to hug your g-spot.  Read more…
