Here's a song that I love from one of my Cyndi Lauper CDs - but her version isn't up on the tube - but this one's not bad...
and here's some jolly carolers... gotta love The Wet Spots
there was another video I was going to put here - but it doesn't seem to be working
Tsaurah Litzky reading from her story "Gifts From Santa" from Susie Bright's X- An Erotic Treasury at In The Flesh last February.
- oh well
have yourself a merry one...

My first comments came on January 5, 2009 post, when Jeremy Edwards and EllaRegina, two writers I admire, and who I would eventually meet "in the flesh," congratulated me on sending off my first official erotica submission. I love "comments" - both leaving them and getting them. It's a way to connect to people that is often misused, but it seems to me that the folks that leave comments on erotica writer's blogs (usually other writers) don't use that space to leave imbecilic, juvenile, rudeness.
Instead, we get into sometimes fun, sometimes serious discussions - see last winter's "moveable feast" that was conceived by Donna George Storey and Kirsten Monroe (now Gina Marie). It was great fun to travel to warmer, sunnier climes during those cold, dark, snowbound days. What was even better, friendships were formed. Craig Sorensen, Shanna Germain, Helia Brookes, Neve Black, Emerald, Sommer Marsden, and Nikki Magennis were all hosts. Some I've now met in person (Craig, Helia, Emerald) and the rest I hope to someday because they are all neat people. Some folks I "met" in the comments sections of this "blog tour" as well as others. Marina St. Clare is one, and she, along with Helia would help me start the Beginner's Ball series - see the sidebar for full line-up.
There's been all sorts of fun to be had during the past year:
The Blow Hard Tour 2009 - and my stop on the tour still brings me new visitors who land there while searching for "euphemisms for cock sucking" and various other fellatio-related searches (some are really off the wall too).
I became Alison Tyler's "button slut" - and today, while wandering NYC, I'm wearing a couple of festive ones on the lapels of my coat - Naughty on my left and Nice on my right.
That first story I submitted was accepted and published in Coming Together: Al Fresco.
One of P.S. Haven's inspired pieces of art inspired a poem. And then I got one of his prints for Mother's Day from my husband!
Alison Tyler interviewed me over at her Trollop Salon.
Alison also published one of my stories, Into The Whirlpool at her H is for Harlot blog (no longer available it seems - it's for "invited" folks only (I won't get started again on that whole debacle of blogger pulling the plug on some of her blogs).
Continuing on a theme... I trolloped myself (actually my husband did the honors).
There was much fire to be had at my stop on the Spicy Summer Sundays blog tour.
I did a three-part interview with artist Randy Lagana, who I've featured on my blog for most of the year. There's links to all parts in the sidebar.
Through a link on Alison's blog about a year ago, I was introduced to Stephen Elliott and The Rumpus and last summer I became part of the infamous "Lending Library" and later had the pleasure of hosting Stephen (which led to many interesting and ongoing changes in my life).
Nine months after first starting to enter Alison's flasher contests, I got a First Place!
I've written funny posts and thinky posts (lots of those), mused on scary dreams and horribly missed friends.
I've let a lot of people know about this blog, but some I still haven't.
I've come a long way and made lots of friends (and sorry if you're not listed here - it's 11pm and I have to get up early).
This has been a life-changing year. And I need to thank every single last one of you who have read here, are reading here (not so many lately, haha) and will read here.
Thanks. I love you all.

And I'm coming up on the one year anniversary of starting this blog, on Dec. 13. Guess I'll take some time to look back, and also to get a few items up that I've been meaning to do. Hard to believe it's been almost a year. Wow.

a glass of water, setting sun below late November clouds, milkweed pods, poems retrieved from the trash bin, warm toes, scattered papers, cooking smells, a cat's purr, stacks of books, a pot of tea, blankets on cold nights, the magic of conversing one keyboard to another, lives preserved in words and music, feathers of birds, the scent of chilled air, a loving touch, laughter, the sound of the mail truck stopping, a rainy day, a sunny day, a cloudy day, a new sight, a new sound, an old face, a tree, a painting done by a friend, a memory, quiet, stopping, starting, the first sip, the last spoonful, the glow of embers, my breath and the breath of others, a leaf floating to the ground, lighted windows at night, the outline of bare branches against the skyline, the passing of time

Am fucking glad this didn't happen before or over this past weekend. I'm working on a post about that. But right now I think I'm going to go have a relaxing beverage and chill out.

This past week I turned my world upside down - and though I want to write about what's going on in my mind right now - I just can't seem to form my thoughts tonight. So I went to YouTube and typed in "Upside Down" and this song came up. I'd not heard it before (yes, I've been living under a rock). Not only do I like Jack Johnson, but the lyrics fit just perfectly with my thoughts.
And yeah, I'll post about the absolutely surreal two days that were this past Friday and Saturday, when Stephen Elliott was here - but that's for tomorrow morning when my mind is hopefully clearer. In the meantime enjoy this catchy tune.

Life is crazy these days - in good and bad ways - but even the bad ways may turn out to be good. Do you know what I mean? When you're in a situation that from most angles looks to be one of the worst you could ever lay eyes on? But could also be one of the best? I'm in the middle of that right now. The most frustrating thing is I want to sit down and write about all this - but I don't have the fucking time!
I'm in the thick of a busy weekend where my Erobintica life merges and overlaps and soaks into (sorta like wine spilled on a favored tablecloth) my "other" writing life. I've organized a reading by Stephen Elliott and he's going to be here tomorrow, literally HERE, staying overnight at my house so I can drive him to his next gig in upstate NY on Saturday. So, I'm trying to figure out all the things I need to get ready for that (remember to clean the damn bathroom and the cat litter boxes), get some food, deal with some stupid shit (I promise I won't go on and on about idiot asshole landlords), and be all ready to go into NYC in the morning to meet a friend and then meet Stephen at Grand Central Station and head back here.
And how did all this come to pass? From long ago (well, not THAT long ago) over at Alison Tyler's blog where I read this post (well, damn, can't get a direct link - it's the Dec. 24 2008 posting Stuffing My Stockings) - and I followed it to The Rumpus. And fell in love with The Rumpus. And gradually came to read more of Stephen's writings - some for the first time, some again, like those in some erotica collections I have. Then I signed up to take a class from him in NYC, Writing From Experience. I wrote about that here. Then I read an advance copy of his latest book, The Adderall Diaries as part of "the lending library." I posted about that here. Then I responded to his query of those folks to host readings. And now it's happening. Right at a time when a bunch of other shit is happening in my life. Much of it my the result of my own doings. But I don't regret anything, because it has all gotten me to where I am now and it's getting me to where I'm going (which I have no fucking clue where that is).
I know this post probably makes no sense. But I don't care. I'll post a lot more after the weekend.

Kindle, and read what she says about how the poem came about.

Friday night I went to see Where The Wild Things Are with a couple of my favorite guys. It was an excellent movie. Emotionally moving (yeah, I cried). Amazing soundtrack (the above embedded clip features Karen O and the Kids). Visually stunning. The structures in the movie reminded me of Andy Goldsworthy's work - I have his "River and Tides: Working with Time" DVD. (found a snip of it to embed). I am very fond of stone and wood. Have dreams of building stuff like that when we get to Maine.
And since I'm in a wild mood...
(I hope to get to see the Rock Bottom Remainders play someday)
here's some more wild...
and one last bit of beautiful wildness before I go and write some wild sex (I'm doing NaNoWriMo).

And as soon as I came across "bad intentions" I thought of this song by this band. 'Nuf said.

This morning my horrorscope told me to "use euphemisms" and I went aha - I know what I'll do for a blog post today! So I whipped out one of my favorite thesauri, The Bald-Headed Hermit and the Artichoke, and started pondering which word/or words to euphemize. Hmm, guess that's not a word. Oh well.
So, while thumbing through, occasionally being distracted by one of the lovely old naughty pictures they use to illustrate with, I found my word. And it is definitely my word. It is definitely one of my favorite conditions to be in. There are a lot of emphemisms, so I'm going to pick out some for today from the this word and then on subsequent days hit the see alsos.
Aroused (see, Lust, Promiscuous, Wet)
accensus libidine - okay, I had to google this one - it's latin, possibly for "inflamed by lust" - sounds good.
begging for it
chucking a spread (hahaha)
cocksmitten (I like this one)
cuntstruck (this too)
dripping for it
feeling the power of the pussy
fuckish (I like this one too - "I'm feeling a bit fuckish tonight dear")
EGYPT (eager to grap your pretty tits - what a hysterica acronym - I will now giggle everytime I hear the word)
getting juiced up
having hot nuts
having hot rocks
having an itch
having peas in the pot
hawking one's mutton
horny as a rhino
hot in the biscuit
in a lather
intemperant (this is the second time I've come across this word this week and it always gets the red squiggly line treatment even though it is a word)
NORWICH (another acronym - (k)nickers off when I come home - according to this English soldiers used this in letters to their sweehearts during the war)
on the make
on the prowl
randy as a three-legged grasshopper (and that's pretty randy)
ready to rut
suffering from lackanookie (ha!)
turned on (duh)
weak in the knees
and sadly, last on the list (sorry for the earworm all you folks of a certain age)
yummy in the tummy
So, that's not the entire list. Does anyone have an good ones that they like to use?

From their "About" page:
Let’s say you’re trying to learn the word assiduous.
Here’s the example sentence that dictionary.com gives:
But he was a man who by assiduous reading, through his devotion to literature, had become the quintessential successful gentleman, a man who could hold his own with the most cultivated companions.
and here’s The Fucking Word of the Day’s:
He was crippled by her assiduous dedication to the blow-job she was performing on him.
Now, which one do you think you’ll remember in ten minutes?

Life has a funny way of happening to us. Today I know what direction I'm going in. There is a peace and a sadness in knowing. I'll be writing more here. But for now I have to be quiet with myself. Let the lessons I've learned sink in and become a part of me.

These days I definitely am feeling my way through a crossroads. Just maneuvering on instinct. It's coming up on the one-year anniversary of some significant events in my life. Starting this blog (in December 2008) was one of them. The loss of a friend was another. The beginning of a friendship, another. And that friend would also be lost. The continued strengthening of a connection with an old friend was also happening. And continues. I sometimes worry about losing him too.

I've not been able to concentrate well this week, though I'm writing a lot. So blog posts have not been top of the list. But you know me. Can't let more than a few days pass without writing something here. So, I thought I'd post one of Randy Lagana's photos and just free write from it. I love this photo. A lot. Hey! How about you join in and free write something in the comments! Come on, don't be scared.

So, first I picked a picture to post. Because I couldn't think of anything to write about. At least for a quicky blog post. This is a picture taken from our trip to DC. But this post has nothing to do with that trip or this picture really.

Today is the last day of August. This week my son starts back to high school. In a week my daughter will be back at college. My routine will be shifting to get up earlier. I tried this morning and did not succeed.
