Erotica vs. Reality
When one edits erotic romance, one can’t help but compare the fictional heroes to one’s real-life hero… Just to be clear, my husband doesn’t use the word “desires”. Ever. If he did, I’d probably tell him to stop being such a pussy (blame what I suspect are my abnormally high levels of testosterone). Nor does he moan loudly every time I lick my lips....
Dear Weather Channel
Why do you bother with live coverage? If I had to guess, I’d say you’re a bunch of sadistic bastards who get your kicks watching your meteorologists report from a bent-double position on a beach while they get free dermabrasion from a sandstorm.

Did I feel old when I found out just weeks ago that...

Second, I fucking hate blogging (note: expect swearing. Lots of swearing. It’s my therapy). I don’t hate blogs, mind you. Okay, maybe I hate some. My various employers over the years have certainly suffered at the hands of irresponsible...
