Update your links! I’ve moved to my new domain! I can now be found rambling at The Outspoken Clitic.  It’s not entirely finished yet, but head on over and let me know what you think!


Blog Update!

January 13, 2009

Good news!  I got my own domain and will soon be moving!  (I’ll be changing the name of the site, too, but I’m not telling you what it’s going to be yet.)  So look for spiffy new upgraded stuff and things!  And new reviews!


January 13, 2009
In which I am interviewed by the lovely Miss KissThis:
1. What is the best gift you’ve ever been given, and why? And the worst?
The best gift I’ve ever been given, hands down, was a six-foot long, iron tipped spear from the mom of a friend for my college graduation. I majored in Classics, and this friend and I had a running joke about me doing all sorts of “classical” things like dressing up in armor and walking around campus (which I never did, by the way). His mom’s family runs a landfill, and someone apparently threw this awesome spear out, so she grabbed it and they gave it to me for graduation. They followed it up this past Christmas with a Greek-style bronze helmet! All I need now are greaves and I’ll be all set.
The worst gift… I dunno. Probably some generic bath products from someone who didn’t really put any thought into it. That happens a lot in middle school.

2. What is one sexual thing that you have never done but want to do?
This is going to sound totally lame, but the I really want to be able to spend the night with someone I’m in love with. With my ex, circumstances made is such that I could go over to his place and we’d have sex, but I’d always have to leave afterwards.

3. Pick one deceased famous person to bring back to life. Who are they, and why did you pick them?
Hmmm….I think I’d probably bring back Hammurabi. He was a total neurotic mess and micro-manager, which I think is hilarious. We’d probably get along really well.
Also possibly Aaron Burr. He was an alumnus of my university, and as we like to say there, “Alexander Hamilton had it coming.”

4. Describe the time and place of your best sexual encounter.
I lost my virginity at a conference, in a hotel room where the power had gone out. (The hotel was in Ohio, but that’s not all that great, haha.) My ex was very gentle and affectionate, and it was the nicest time I’ve ever had.

5. What is the very first website you check when you get online, and why?
I’d say the websites I check immediately (with the exception of my gmail, of course), are Shakesville and ThinkProgress. I’m an outspoken feminist and political news junkie, and during the election I was checking these sites (and others) literally every ten minutes.

Want to be part of it? Follow these instructions:
1. Leave me a comment saying, “Interview me.”
2. I will respond by emailing you five questions. I get to pick the questions.
3. You will update your blog with the answers to the questions.
4. You will include this explanation and an offer to interview someone else in the same post.
5. When others comment asking to be interviewed, you will ask them five questions.

Editor’s Pick

  • Fun Factory Laya Spot by Thursday’s Child
  • I think I might finally understand all of the buzz surrounding the Laya Spot! I’m a fan of strong vibrators, and most of the battery powered vibrators just can’t compare to my go-to vibrator, the Hitachi Magic Wand. But this funny little vibrator is strong! Really strong. And quiet, too!

Whew.  I’m not entirely finished (I still have an exam and a few more papers), but the big crunch is over and now everything can proceed at a more reasonable pace.  That means I’ll be able to get back to reviewing and posting more regularly (oh, and also finding a job for next semester…).


January 9, 2009

I’m taking a quick break from my papers. Whew. I’ve decided that my post-finals resolution will be to give my blog a visual overhaul. I’d like to make it look snazzier, maybe get my own domain. Mostly I just have to give myself something to look forward to so I get all my work out of the way.

I’ve also decided I’d like to do some more serious posts about PTSD and getting through my hangups about sex. Part of the point of me doing this is to help me get over stuff, and how better to get over things than by talking about them?

Anyway, just some thoughts. Back to papers.

Update: After deciding I’d be up pretty much all night writing, instead of working I took a 20 minute break, grabbed my Sharpies, and made myself this motivational sign (because I make poor life choices).  Eight hundred million points to whoever gets the reference. 🙂


Random fact about me: I’m obsessed with Sharpies.  Don’t ask why, because I have no idea.  But I love them.

So…clearly I don’t want to write any more papers

January 7, 2009


So I’m going to post!  I’m in increasingly bad shape paper-wise, but for some reason it just isn’t bothering me all that much.

In other news, the lovely Miss KissThis bought me a Xtreme Pack G-Spot bullet, which I have been lusting after for months.  Basically, she’s awesome.  It should be here tomorrow and I’m *so* excited.

Also, I’ve been poking around on Eden to avoid doing real work, and I’ve come to realize that I really, really want a harness.  Specifically, the Jaguar harness.  Now, this is a little strange because I’m currently partner-less, and thus have no one to use it on.  But I’m just ridiculously attracted to the Jaguar: it looks so cool.  I don’t really know what I’d do with it at this point, but I want it.
