Spirit, I'm sorry about all the IM links.

is a nice tattoo for you to look at in the mean time
The first reaction I have to this is, "ick." The second: But I was sexually aware at 12 and active not long after, and smart enough to seek out condoms, etc. Third: We've redefined "pedophilia" in a way that renders it meaningless. Attraction to anyone below the age of consent? Please, tell me there are no girls on the birthday one year before the age of consent in your area that you find sexually attractive, but who will become magically attractive one year from today? Pedophilia has to do with sexual desire for the prepubescent, not the underaged. And few even twelve-year-olds are prepubescent these days. Not that I find it especially normal for an adult to be sexually attracted to twelve-year-olds... but not admitting that you might find a fourteen-year-old sexy, even if you wouldn't act on it because of a difference in power and a sheer "ick" factor, is to deny human nature.

My horoscope today: Sagittarius
The curtain comes up on the backstage goings on around you today, and the exposure will be very educational. A big mystery is finally solved -- much of what you thought was true isn't really -- and you need to ask for more than a few explanations. Anger isn't an inherently bad emotion -- if you feel it today, use it to help you stay focused on what you need to do. Act maturely and responsibly, but above all, take care of yourself and move on if you need to move on.

Seems to be about 2 days late. Actually I'm a scosagius. But it sums up my weekend rather well. The anger isn't related to the first part, despite what you'd think. More hormones and anticipation and frustration that in getting through this last month I know I'll be out of contact with Spirit a lot more of the time... and that makes me feel lost... and at waiting for money transfers to finish so I can get more done, and at the impotence I feel for never having been able to put my full thought forward at work.
See my other blog, link right, for more introspection

This is exactly why I will never make a writer. Not the thinking that smart people use big fancy words thing--I know that good writing is simple. I have a problem with the "omit needless words" thing. I just can't express the simplest of thoughts without writing a novel that says almost nothing. A real novel's worth of ideas in my own prose would be encyclopedia-length. "Write as you speak?" Ha, but I'm the person who speaks normally and without thought and daily heard from my friend, "Who USES that word!?" I am overly verbose, and no amount of writing exercise cures this. It did come in handy in high school, though; artful sentences were paragraphs unto themselves (and that was a BIG no-no, of course--I could get away with it through a colorful expression of ideas combined with a creative yet exact use of punctuation that meant that the sentence really did fill out the paragraph's purpose), and I had no trouble filling out X pages, typed and double-spaced--we were required to have ten pages of readers' journal a week in ninth-grade Literature, and mine was nearly always closer to thirty.

On fonts: I'm for this. I use Century Gothic most of the time, precisely because I find it most readable on-screen for my own uses (and eyeballs)

Clueless is on (and nothing else--I've burnt on Fresh Prince after a solid week, though I do love Geoffrey), so I'm watching, and I'm thinking, am I the only person on the planet who liked Brittany Murphy better like this?

Ugh. This bothers me more than I'd think it would.


Ew... (via)

No shit (also an answer to the fuckwads who say "Money doesn't buy happiness" or "Money doesn't keep you from having problems, it just dresses them up/changes the scenery--Yeah, and keeps you from wondering whether you're going to pay the credit card you had to take out to make sure you had food and a working car to get to work, or buy enough food for the next couple weeks, or if you're going to be able to find decent housing when your lease is up)

Not even fair

On this story--bloggers are pegging it as a dumb crook story, but I am 95% certain there's more to it. Scenarios I find most likely: Guy wanted to be in prison or to be heard by the courts for other reasons (likely reasons: guy is ill and can't afford treatment/medicine, guy is overburdened by finances and has decided that surviving is worth his freedom, guy has something really important to say), or guy had Alzheimer's or another mental disorder and really didn't know what he was doing or couldn't control his impulses. It's clear, at least, that he didn't hurt anyone, or want to. Note, I'm not saying this means he should get off. It just means I'd be more interested in hearing what he or his doctors have to say than the punditry that abounds online.


This bears reading.


This stuff makes me feel anxious--all financial things are making me anxious right now, until I can get it all together, budget, and take care of a couple things. Please, O Lord in Heaven, O Goddess His Child and Consort, let our marriage happen without delay or hitch, so that we can get it all together. Still, has some mortgage calculators that might be useful if I have the stomach.

(But THOSE abortions are natural, therefore GOD'S WILL!)

More than you ever wanted to know about Jell-O shots
(that second link is sorta pretty)

is hysterical, but fetish uses occur to me (OK, not 600+ condoms, but enough to totally nullify sensation there? I'll suggest to some domme friends--I'm not the dominant one in my sphere)

Well, I promised someone a story, so I had better get cracking. Love to all (Mwah!)
Your Personality Is Like Acid

A bit wacky, you're very difficult to predict.
One moment you're in your own little happy universe...

You Belong in 1973

If you scored...

1950 - 1959: You're fun loving, romantic, and more than a little innocent. See you at the drive in!

1960 - 1969: You are a free spirit with a huge heart. Love, peace, and happiness rule - oh, and drugs too.

1970 - 1979: Bold and brash, you take life by the horns. Whether you're partying or protesting, you give it your all!

1980 - 1989: Wild, over the top, and just a little bit cheesy. You're colorful at night - and successful during the day.

1990 - 1999: With you anything goes! You're grunge one day, ghetto fabulous the next. It's all good!

I just spent hours on the phone with AT&T getting the runaround, including them wanting a phone number to proceed for a calling card plan that doesn't have a phone number on the bill--I got as far as giving ONE person at an overseas call center the *account* number--and getting a recording that says "The office is now closed, please call back during office hours... Saturday from 9am to 7pm eastern time"--mind, the calls were all between five and seven on Saturday. If there's holiday hours, update your recordings. Right now I'm so mad I'm thinking I should drop Cingular service because they acquired AT&T Cellular (and I'm pretty sure Cingular bought AT&T and AT&T now has no affiliation with the company).

And Spirit and I had a PayPal bug and are missing almost $4000 someone's supposed to get us by tomorrow. Just f'ing kill me. My stomach hurts from dealing with this.

The Peach
Playful, kind, and well-loved, you are The Peach.

For such a warm-hearted, generous person, you're surprisingly experienced in both love and sex. We credit your spontaneous side; you tend to live in the moment, and you don't get bogged down by inhibitions like most women your age. If you see something wonderful, you confidently embrace it.

Your exact opposite:
The Nymph

You are a fun flirt and an instant sweetheart, but our guess is you're becoming more selective about long-term love. It's getting tougher for you to become permanently attached; and a guy who's in a different place emotionally might misunderstand your early enthusiasm. You can wreck someone simply by enjoying him.

Your ideal mate is adventurous and giving, like you. But not overly intense.

I have to ask this

WTF is wrong with glasses? I've noticed a lot of conversations on Ask.MeFi lately on contacts and eye surgeries, and I'm starting to have the impression that everyone is wearing contacts these days. Glasses can be misplaced, sure, but so can contacts--and otherwise, glasses are a better way to make a personal style statement, and a lot healthier for the eyes than the contacts. Why are people so vain, and why are eyeglasses a subject of vanity in the first place?

Fuck that.

I wonder if they could do a good study on those who're bi, or else offer testing to see which way they lean--or those with gender identity issues or who feel that they lean "opposite" and see how they respond to sex hormones.

Even if you're still significantly overweight, anyone who calls a 110lb weight-loss a "failure" needs to think again.

They call it "Internet"

Mad Jack

Am I the only girl who, as a teenager, went for the most explicit "romance" novels I could find? On the other hand, how is this different from letting teenagers read Penthouse Letters? Are they going to keep teenagers from buying "erotic novels" when "romance novels" are OK? I like the part in that second article about some woman's husband complaining to the author or publisher because her book was the filthiest thing he'd ever seen. (1) get out from the rock, dude. (2) no one forced her to read or buy it, maybe you should be dealing with her, and not the people who write that stuff. Some of us like our smut.

Purity no match for hormones--check out the alternative pledge at the end.



2006 and we're still worried about women selling their virtue and making themselves unmarriageable.

Spirit told me yesterday I'd make a good dolphin. I don't know what he meant by that. But dolphins are amazing. First the air bubble rings (the other article I read was about them using them for toys--this one states that it's a type of sculpture), now evidence that they know each other's unique names.

Ewwwwww (I'm guessing this might actually be a wine I'd like, but it doesn't sound very good)

OK, so:
You scored as Eyes full of Pain. People tend to overlook you, which makes you feel less worthy of their attentions. You sometimes wish you could just disapear from the world around you. You have been hurt very badly in the past and you just wish that someone would understand you, and what their cruelty is doing to you.

21st time's the charm

While some are deeply saddened by their need for ED medications at a younger age (than Bob Dole, I guess), the same drugs are becoming a major player as college-aged young men's street drugs. Spirit has had some moments of needing them while we got him stable on Androgel, and let me tell you, I understand why--this is a man who can drive me to the heights of ecstasy without ever touching me, just with his eyes and his voice, who is well-endowed naturally and knows how to use what he has like an artist knows how to use a brush, and the enhancement of the experience in terms of size and hardness was still worth me teasing him about feeding them to him recreationally.

I'm watching Defending Your Life on Encore Love Stories. Man, I hope this isn't the way the afterlife works. I've been guided by fear far too often--but then, with Spirit, I did the brave thing--whatever I tell anyone, I wouldn't have left my ex if I hadn't fallen in love with Spirit, because again, I would have been ruled by fear--but I took a leap of faith, and that's what courage is about, sometimes. No, I couldn't have had a happy and fulfilling life where I was--but I could've been secure.

Spirit, meditate before your BP readings. You might get to get off the Atenolol. I'm serious about the yoga.

OK then--the punchline isn't what I thought it was--watch where they're bombing on the map, not the words. Duh.

An adult moment

Kids, stop reading now.

Part of me really wants to start a sex blog just so I can join the Sugasm. Reality is that, while the outlet would likely help me, I'm exhausted and in pain just from doing the groceries (and sick from eating, again--Honestly, I did have some caffeine--no one at the mall sold water bottles and I hate just ordering an ice cup--but I got a small combo meal at the new Chinese place, and shared it with the five-year-old who's been eating like a horse, and gave him half that drink as well. When won't it hurt to eat again? I took my Antivert and everything...). So, I don't have the creative energy to write the fantasies in my head. When Spirit comes home, he keeps my body too actively engaged in my fantasies for me to write about them. But seriously, I learn a lot reading the sugasm posts (aside from having my prurient interests engaged and imagination fired). (I'd never have thought about either nettles or ginger as sex toys before I started reading Sugasm faithfully--and I read a lot on BDSM and other adult subjects aside from the blogosphere).

Is cyberprostitution, prostitution? If so, we'd better be shutting down private peep shows and phone sex lines. It's somewhere between phone sex and interactive pornography (or maybe the nudie bar or peep show). Prostitution lets you touch someone, feel them. Even using teledildonics, it isn't the same thing.
