When I see an
adult on a bicycle, I do not despair for the future of the human
race. ~H.G. Wells
I have this fantasy where I’m lazily riding my trusty bicycle around town, the artificial breeze flirting with my skirt-hem, donating forbidden glimpses of my gartered stockings an… Read full post »
Spaghetti alla Puttanesca, which literally translates to "whore's spaghetti," is a tasty, tangy, salty dish that can rescue you on one of those nights when it seems like there's nothing to make for dinner. I love olives, so, this is pretty much my new favorite thing -- I can't believe it… Read full post »
Reading around at a few blogs this week, I’ve started to wonder if I’m blitheringly insane, or if I’m just missing out on one of the great clandestine joys of womanhood: being a complete bitch.
Do all women secretly hate each other?
I admit that I’ve had a hard time… Read full post »
Psychologists and Philosophers and People in general can talk for hours about basic human needs, and one that always comes up is Attachment. I find my attachment in connection, and that's why I write. In an attempt to connect to other people, I blog and comment and participate in things like… Read full post »
Sweet and Sour was always a 'guilty pleasure' when thinking of ordering Chinese takeout food; battered, fried meat nuggets and pineapple bits with unnaturally bright sweet syrup = yummy, but a little scary. So, this version is not only a tad healthier and totally customized to your preferen… Read full post »
And also Bi, apparently. And here, I thought I was Ms. Straight/Monogamous/Vanilla.
I was lucky to trip over one of the most enlightening articles I’ve ever read on the subject of polyamory this morning. Oddly, it was on an astrology website, but, I shan’t look gift horses in their mouth… Read full post »
The Rose parade coverage blew SO MANY chunks this year, I had to write to both the Tournament of Roses and to NBC to vent. I'm also sharing here. Enjoy.
As a long time lover of the Tournament of Roses parade, and an Ohio State University Alumnus; I can't begin… Read full post »
I was always irritated and dismayed when my parents would say “don’t get me anything,” when I asked them what they’d like for Christmas. Because, well, you kind of have to give people something, especially important people like those who brought you into this world. But,… Read full post »
Our love story is something else. Crazy doesn't scratch the surface but... it's real. And, strong. And well... actually, one of our last arguments was about glue, so, funny I should mention it.
I met him in a public place for tea after just a few lines of Instant Message… Read full post »
Sometimes, I like to point out the obvious and treat it like a grand revelation, but today, the Washington Post wins. According to this article, the Archdiocese of Washington has noted that they will have to break contracts they have with the City if a proposed gay-marriage-related law passes.

1. More than 98 percent of convicted felons are bread users.
2. Fully HALF of all children who grow up in bread-consuming households score below average on standardized tests.
3. In the 18th century, when virtually all bread was baked in the home, the average life expectancy was less… Read full post »
Is evolution going backward? Are we okay with this? It seems like finding out new and fascinating information about how our caveman brains worked is being used to give people license to go ahead and behave like Neanderthals. Proudly.
Scientists discovering, hypothesizing, testing, and confirming the… Read full post »
Warning: there are allusions to a very sacred story in the poem you are about to read... I am not suffering delusions of holiness, I just really adore how the story parallels a transformation in my life... I intended no blasphemy, but it might have snuck in... also, it follows no known… Read full post »

I guess I’ve become a punk foodie. You know how punk rockers eschew any artist that experiences some degree of commercial success because they become sellouts and their work turns to crap? I'm there.
I’m mad at some of my formerly favorite restaurants for making it big. It seems like… Read full post »
When I kiss you, I
Wish I were a butterfly
To taste us all over
When I hold you, I
Wish I were an octopus
To grip every bit
When I see you, I
Wish I were a dragonfly
To sprint to your arms
When I love you, I
Wish I were a… Read full post »
Feels like I'm always the one makin the first move on my lover lately, so, this one is for him...
First to arch my back to say I want it,
First to slide my fingers under these clothes,
First to mount you and grind and grin,
First to grip you from… Read full post »
Preface: Fingerlakeswanderer wrote specifically to Mr. E asking about what sex is like for men, and he answered (with what could easily be my favorite post of the month!); consequently he volleyed the ball back to her court asking in turn what sex was like for women. Well, this is my… Read full post »
I find it difficult to believe that I am not enough for him! I have been ‘too much’ for so many before, yet this one feels I am not enough. He insists on trying to make me believe that he is intended for multiple partners, and for many weeks, I believed… Read full post »
you slip into place
and then that look on your face --
i can't help myself
our rhythm is song
bedsprings creaking the lyrics
love to dance with you

I promised myself when I started publicly "blogging" that I wouldn't slip into the stereotypical caricature of the constant angry ranter, and, well, I'm not that angry... but I will rant for a moment.
So, when did people stop thinking? I mean, seriously. It seems that a large hunk of… Read full post »
I can still feel you
Though many an hour has passed
You change me when you're inside.
Drizzling rain, I wonder
How he tastes when dripping wet
Thirsty, Soaked, Breathless.
Can you tell from there
By the flushing of my skin
I just touched myself?

Everyone knows that not that far into a new relationship we do silly things like google our squeeze, check their daily horoscopes for insight on how best to make them happy, and run a variety of pseudo-scientific compatibility tools against what we know about them to see if the cosmos give… Read full post »
