the life and musings of a kinky slut

I’m Done —

I was already a little peeved. I had waited for five minutes for the assistant to come into my room and check my vitals, a long delay that had previously never happened. And then I waited on the exam table, naked with my gown opening facing backwards, for another ten minutes for my GYN nurse […]

Religion and Reproduction —

This is a straight-up rant. This post isn’t meant to be sexy. It’s not specifically about sex, or fucking, or all the fun things my life occasionally entails. Fun Fact: In high school I was voted Most Opinionated. Here is a taste of why. [Side note: I was also voted Most Boy Crazy. Snicker as […]

Care —

I spent most of today in a hospital. I came to the need of a friend, sat by their side through the slowest waiting room ever, many doctors, many nurses, more waiting, and lots of questions. In the end, my friend was discharged with no new answers but much less pain. It is a cliche […]

In Other News —

So, anybody read the paper or watched the news lately?  Because if you haven’t, you’ve been missing out on “Armageddon” and “Waterloo” NOT occurring.  What did happen was the President saw the center piece of his political agenda get passed, and people scared to death by the Republican Party started acting crazy.  A few ‘for instances’:1) Rep. Barney Frank being […]

Letter To My Senator —

Recently a letter has been floating around the Senate. It’s a pledge to pass the Public Option through budget reconciliation, a Parliamentary maneuver and way to bypass filibusters. It is the way CHIP (The Children’s Health Insurance Program) & COBRA (what I now have) were passed, along with FIVE Bush era tax cuts and multiple […]

Resist The Urge To Turn Pussy —

Congressional Democrats, the shit we all saw coming has finally arrived. Scott Brown won the special election in Massachusetts today and will soon be the new junior Senator, thereby extinguishing your paper thin filibuster proof majority. Now, I know there are some of you who will see this as a reason to stop pushing for […]

Man Up Or Shut Up —

I am so sick and tired of people putting all this importance and pressure on the Massachusetts Senate race. Face it DNC: you fucked up. You chose the wrong candidate for the position, didn’t realize her level of unawares about the most basic of Boston knowledge (namely that Kurt Schilling is NOT a Yankee fan), […]

Always in the Car —

My morning has not been fun. I will explain. As many of you know, yesterday was election day. I was only half interested in the results, seeing as my county did not hold elections. Last night I signed onto Twitter and found through a link an up-to-date posting of results. I went to bed knowing […]

Elbow Photos —

Here is a close up of my first sling configuration and a shot of the offending elbow. Here is a shot of the second, and frankly better, sling currently in use. I knotted the rope, making a large loop, and placed it over my head. The knot is below my right arm while the top […]

Annoyance of the Hour —

Currently, most of the weight of holding my left arm up is being supported by my neck. Saturday night, as I parked the car after a long day of worked, a shooting pain in my elbow made me yelp. I had hoped this pain would pass while I slept, but intermittently yesterday, while sitting at […]
