To say that I am something less than a good housekeeper would be an understatement. I’m nowhere near “Hoarders” level, but let’s just say that no one would be safe eating off my floors and I usually have enough dog hair around to knit another dog.


I do seasonal cleaning, though, spring and fall. It takes me nearly a month to do it, but it DOES get done. Fortunately my house is tiny. Sidenote: I made the remark last week that our house was the size of a shoebox, and BigD was offended. I had to explain to him that it wasn’t meant as an insult – I LOVE my little house and wouldn’t want it to be any bigger. Honestly, why are men so obsessed with SIZE? 😈

Dull As Old Barbed Wire

I should be doing the taxes, but I’m in a snit at the old man and I doan wanna (spoken in my whiny voice). If you didn’t know me you might think it was because I didn’t get anything, not even a card, for Valentine’s Day.

But it’s not.

It’s because he’s a dick in bed.

Hey come back, this is NOT gonna be TMI, this time, I promise. Well there might be later in this post, but right now I’m referring to how he talks in his sleep, NOT about his tremendous sexual prowess (what, you don’t think I’ve been with him for 25 years because he’s independently wealthy, do ya?).

Every once in a while, usually if he’s sick, like with a bad cold, he talks in his sleep and says shitty things to me. One night last week, after I’d had a tremendous coughing fit, he told me to get out of bed then called the dog up next to him.


Night before last, every time I woke up coughing he had something snotty to say. Then when his alarm went off, he says, “Well, at least SOMEONE gets to sleep.

I am fully aware of the fact that he can’t be held accountable for anything he says/does in his sleep, but it pisses me off. I mean, I am already PISSED OFF because I just woke myself up for the third (or fourth or fifth) time coughing my guts out. Do I really need his assholery on top of it?

He always apologizes for anything he might’ve said and I know he doesn’t mean it, but STILL

NOW for the real TMI – The Valentine’s Day Edition

  1. Have you had sex with another person in 2010? Have you passed on an opportunity to sex with another person in 2010?
  2. Nope. Nope.

  3. What is the funniest thing you have ever said or done during sex? (Orgasmic facial expressions do not count.)
  4. When we were first together, I gave BigDaddy a great big whack across the head. I can’t imagine why the hell he kept dating me.

  5. What is the first thing you notice about a member of the opposite sex?
  6. Their forearms and hands.

  7. What is the best pick-up line you have ever heard? Every used? Ever been used on you?
  8. Really? I grew up in and made my living for thirty years in a bar – pick one. I’ve heard ’em all. Some worked, some didn’t.

  9. Where is the most unique you have ever had sex?
  10. Men’s room of a bar we hang out at 😉

TMI Tuesday


1. What is your favorite charity? Do you you give your time or just money to that charity?

Susan G. Komen – I know I should give more than just money, but I dont 🙁

2. Describe your bed. What side do you sleep on?

My bed is a brand new Queen sized pillow top – Yay!  It’s on risers so I have to climb into it like a little girl, lol.  I sleep on the right side, unless BigD is gone. Then I sleep on all sides!

3. How important is a partners kissing ability?

It used to be very important, after 24 years while it’s still important, I don’t get all huffy if he slacks a little in the lip department.  He makes up for it in other ways, and besides, when he does kiss me like he used to – WOW!

4. Have you ever “taken advantage” of a person under the influence of alcohol? Have you ever been “taken advantage” of while under the influence of alcohol?

Erm … I’m sure I did in the past – there was a LOT of alcohol assumption going on in my younger days, lol.  I’ve never been taken advantage of unless I WANTED to be!

5. Ever tried to replay the famous scene from From Here to Eternity? How was it?

Um, that wold be a no.  Cold wet and sandy – I think not.

Bonus (as in optional): What kind of birth control do you use?

None – I been FIXED.  Yay!!!!!!!
