The Pill for Men

Yes please.

Men would only take it once a month, or once every three months, and it appears to be 100% effective. (FilthyGorgeousThings)

Now that I am back from Tofino I will start the process of moving in to my new room in my new little heritage house with my new roommates. I'm excited, nervous, overwhelmed and generally quite happy. Time for a more grown up lifestyle.

Headed to Tofino for some swim, surf and fun...see you Tuesday folks:

I've been contemplating the idea of getting rid of some of my items of clothing via eBay for the past while, and have even taken the steps of setting myself up an account. Now I'm ready to commit! Of course I could try to sell some of my things locally, but in general, I'm not really sure how many people in Victoria are looking for the things I might be selling...which at the moment seems to be vintage dresses and skirts.

Here is a sneak peek at a few of the items that I am currently in the process of setting up on an my account, and once it is all set up, I will post a link to it!

I LOVE this little 70's dress, with the lace neckline and tie but unfortunately the waistband hits me higher than my waistline and sort of cuts across my ribs...

At one point in time I had planned on chopping this coral red dress with fantastic 80's ruffles so that it was an above the knee dress, but the fabric is so delicate that I don't have the heart to attempt it and possibly wreck it (also, red...not so much my colour). So instead I'll leave it to a more talented seamstress.

And finally, this adorable striped skirt is fantastic...but not for me because I do not have a 24-25 inch waist:

Rachel Roy

I've been oggling a few of Rachel Roy's pieces that are available at The Bay over the last month or so and haven't really been able to get them out of my mind since.

Today mum and I were running errands and basically because she also really likes the pieces and thinks that Rachel Roy is a very smart designer I am now sold on the item that I want most:

....and because it is on sale, the purchase is thus much easier to make! If not this romper, then I will most likely spend the cashola on this structured little number:

Maybe a 2 month early birthday present?

Goodness gracious...what to do...

Sir Ian McKellen

Female Genital Mutilation at Cornell University

Big 'ol WTF?

There's so much to be angry about I hardly know where to start. Applying a vibrator a girl's clitoris after it's been surgically shortened may demonstrate that she still has "sensation" in what's been left behind—that she still has a few nerve endings that function—but that's not proof that she hasn't been physically or emotionally harmed by the surgery and those traumatic follow-up "procedures." These post-op visits with the doctor and his vibrator do the girls no good—what can the doctor do if a girl reports no sensation? reassemble her clit?—and retaining sensation isn't proof that these girls will grow up to be healthy, sexually functional adults. All of the tissues that make up the clitoris—the glans, the stem, the erectile tissues—are important to sexual response, orgasm, and fulfillment, not just the part of the clitoris that's "normally" exposed.

Frenchies and pugs

I think I have an obsession right now. LOOK AT THEM! They're effing adorable! Sure I want a big dog...but really?


It's that time of year again, when everyone starts to wear a little less clothing and after work or school people are heading to the beach or are lying in their back yard taking in the sun.

For Victoria, summer seems to finally be upon us, but I hesitate to say that because at any moment it could decide it would rather go back to Spring and start raining again...and that is not at all what I want.

Regardless, I am happy to have spent my weekend in the sun and on the beach and have begun thinking of new bathing suits and what different ways I can alter the old dresses I bought (LAST summer...procrastinator, I know).

PS: See that cute brunette with the short hair? That's what I want to do next Spring/Summer. Regardless of how much I want to have long hair, all I can do is think of cutting it or what colour I will dye it next. Blonde is great, I'm loving having it...but nothing beats a sexy auburn or chestnut brown.

I like reading Ish's blog because she quotes stuff like this:
One thing that makes me so angry that, when it rears its ugly head in any skin flick I’m watching, makes me stop, rant and rave at the TV for a while, throw the remote, pick it back up, and either fast-forward through the scene or turn off the DVD altogether. That thing? Acrylic nails. Not only are they usually ugly, but they are also wrong in certain settings, and one of them is a girl-girl lesbian sex scene! I simply cannot fathom how, in the years that pornography has existed in its current formats and in the many more years that women have been having sex with each other, it has apparently not occurred to the porn establishment that fingernails are sharp. They hurt when they poke into things. And they hurt a lot more when the “things” being poked are vaginas. Who on earth would go into a girl-girl scene with giant—square-tipped for Christ’s sake—fake nails on, and think, “Oh, this was a good idea”? When is the last time any of you saw an honest-to-god, real life lesbian with long, much less square, fingernails? Never, right? Ever wonder why?

And then adds her own commentary, comme ca:

I would love a to read side-by-side commentaries on a porno, one written by a man and one by a woman. Because sometimes all I can think about, while watching porn, are the fake nails.

Also Conflicted Existence of a Female Porn Writer is one of my favourite series. And maybe it should be yours too.

So what I'm trying to say is that I'm pretty happy there is another person out there (I'm sure there is more than just one), who does not understand fake nails in lesbian porn scenes and that it IS something that I notice almost automatically in any girl on girl porn...because I would not want giant nails near my vag...and I'm sure those women don't really either.

Also, I wonder how often they have days during shooting where the girls nail falls off or something?
