So, I’m in the middle of finals. I only have one exam, on the 20th, so that’s no big deal. However, on the 12th, I have like, 8 pieces of written work due (three 5-7 pagers, 2 20-pagers, 2 10-pagers, and 1 of indeterminate length). Add to this the fact that I’ve been sick and horribly unproductive (because I’m asleep like, 14 hours a day and the rest of the time I can’t focus), and you get one cranky Toygirl. I should be panicking at this point, but I’m not, which is frustrating in and of itself because the panic makes you get more stuff done. Arrrgh.
Anyway, sorry to bitch. The next couple of days are not going to be fun, and my papers are not going to turn out well. Sigh.
Update: Oh yeah, and a lot of what I’m working on has to do with Binding Theory. Sadly, this is not as much fun as it sounds.

Go forth and NOMINATE!
Domina Doll and Scarlet Lotus Sexgeek are teaming up to put together the (first annual?) Best Sex Toy Reviewers List for 2008 which will be featured right here on Pleasurists!
We know a lot of reviewers, but we don’t know all of you out there, so that’s where you come in! We have many reviewers in mind already, but we are also looking for nominations from you all to give us a good idea of who you think is fit to be on the list of the best sex toy reviewers of 2008!
The nomination information:
- You can’t nominate yourself, but feel free to (and please do!) re-post this on your blog, that way your readers may want to nominate you for the list.
- If someone is already nominated you can nominate them as well. The nominations someone receives may factor in to the final listing, so nominate everyone, even if someone’s already mentioned them.
- To qualify the person must have reviews up (well, obviously). Preferably multiple reviews not just one or two.
- You can nominate as many reviewers as you’d like, but please keep in mind this is a list of the best of the best. So, try to give me the absolute best five or ten reviewers rather than a huge long list.
- Nominations are open until January 25th and the list of reviewers will be posted January 31st.
Nominate your choices in the comments of this post! Or, if you would prefer your nominations to be private feel free to send an email to scarletsexgeek at gmail dot com.
Be sure to go leave nominations!

My latest review is up at Eden Fantasys. I really like the Superbe, despite the fact that I think mine is slightly defective (it rattles oh so loudly). It’s still cute and effective.

So, for Christmas, my dad bought each of his daughters (there are three of us) a tube of this super fancy British men’s shaving cream. None of us even skipped a beat, because my dad is upper-class British, totally into shaving stuff, and totally metro. He was all, “it lathers up really well and is going to be really good for larger surface areas!” (My brother didn’t get any, since he’s only 13 and I think my dad is still in denial that he’s shaving at all.) Ridiculous moments like this are par for the course in my family.
Well, as comical as my dad is, he’s right. My sisters and I conferred today, and with all precincts reporting, we called this one for HELL YES. This stuff is really, really nice. It’s moisturizing and the razor just glides. Predictably, it smells a little masculine, but the scent isn’t too strong, so I just wash off after shaving with some accordingly feminine scented shower gel and you can’t even tell. So, just throwing it out there for anyone who might be looking for a nice shaving product.

(Apologies, everyone, for my being in my bathrobe. I’m writing final papers and have been too lazy to get dressed for a few days now. I assure you I’m still showering, though.)
I’m reviewing this toy for Eden, and I decided to link to a video demonstrating some of the tactile and auditory aspects of this particular vibrator (read: it’s really squishy and loud). I had very mixed feelings about this toy, and I’ll put up the link to entire review when it goes live.
Update: My review has gone live at Eden! It can be read here!

Today is my birthday! I’m 24. I had the following conversation with my sister this morning:
Sister: Happy Birthday! 24 is a pretty useful number. It’s divisible by lots of things.
Toygirl: Yeah, but 23 was prime, and that was pretty awesome, too.
Sister: True. We’re nerds.
I have been gifted a Waterproof Turbo Glider Blueberry by Backseat Boohoo, who is a total sweetie and didn’t know how good her timing was!
Otherwise, I’m still kind of sick and still working on papers, so it’s not going to be my best birthday ever. My present to myself will be getting one of my drafts done!
