Because someone who’s been on narcotics for two months is constipated because they’re fat. Obviously.

I was originally coming here to write a quick bulleted list of some shit that’s going on right now, but then we went to Rite Aid to pick up M’s prescription, and when we got home he told me some shit and now I’m kinda pissed. So, instead of a stupid, boring bulleted list, you get this rant, courtesy of the douchebag pharmacist at the Rite Aid down the street. All together now. “Thanks, douchebag!”

Let’s start at the beginning so you can appreciate how truly fucked up this experience has been for us.

A few months ago, M started having issues with his back. He says it started at the beginning of the year, but I think it may be related to the issues he was having as early as last summer; issues we wrote off as sciatica, and he decided to walk off. It worked, but now that he’s dealing with back issues, again, I’m beginning to wonder if that was a fluke, and he wasn’t dealing with the beginning of what’s going on now.

He went to the doctor in September, and they gave him a light pain med and a muscle relaxer, and when the refills ran out (and after walking 2.75 miles almost every day), he felt better. Read more…

mouthguard molding

So…I snore. Loudly and most of the night. We’re steadily running out of ideas to fix this. This is idea number 23948934875023450928374. Or something. I’m thrilled. Can you tell?

Daily Photo – Day 41: THE Color

The dye Rayne uses on her hair currently

Ignore the orange nails (which, sadly, I’m finding is not as pretty on nails as in the bottle) because that mani so is not finished. Literally just started it. This is THE color. The dye I’ve fallen in love with. And I’m resisting dying it again even though my roots are showing and it’s faded a great deal because M really likes the stage it’s at right now. 1…2…3…Awwwww!!!

Why I Do Not Support CatalystCon and Probably Never Will

The audio of the closing keynote has been posted since the publishing of this article. You can find it here. I have listened to it, and will be posting a response soon.

This is a long one. tl;dr I’ll not be attending or supporting CatalystCon until its leaders prove to me and the rest of the sex positive community that they actually stand behind the things they claim to believe, and are not just paying lip service to them.

So we all know I didn’t actually attend CatalystCon (CCON) this year, right? I mean, I’ve never been. I’ve never really felt invited or welcome. Something about a drunk hooker joke, and my unpopular opinions.

I considered going this year anyway, because some really cool people that I really enjoy working with and talking to online were going to be there; like the crew over at SheVibe, and Tantus, and a couple bloggers we all know and love. But when it came down to it, my social anxiety and the knowledge that M would be so incredibly bored (and probably incredibly annoyed) won out, so I didn’t attempt to talk him into it beyond bringing it up once or twice in passing. “Oh, we could stay at Mom’s and drive into the city every day. Make a week of it at Mom’s, and end it with the con, ya know?” Read more…

This is what I look like when I’m editing. Coffee in hand, bitchy resting face, unkempt ponytail. Sexy, right? (Okay, the unkempt ponytail is my thing. Get over it.)
