Not a regular reader, but came across it and enjoyed the snarky humor. Drop in and read about the you that was your 20s. The heroine of my novel reminds a lot of women of themselves....
 
Thanks for stopping by! I'll check out your novel.
 
Hey, I wanna check out that novel, too, w.s. cross, it looks like my kinda book. By the way, have you read, Mary Karr's The LIARS' CLUB, cherry, & The Devil's Tour? Just asking 'cuz I loved 'em. Say, landismom, you said, "3 ways I am stereotypically a boy: I hate to cook I'm not great at small talk I curse like a longshoreman
3 ways I am stereotypically a chick: I'm enamored by the pink & glittery I stand up for myself even if I have to cry to get through it I love gossip"
So that reminded me of a recent comment I made on another blog:
Gotta tell you about our sexual karma. I was raised as a boy by my samurai father, who had hoped for a first-born son, so when he got a daughter, said, "It can't be helped, I'll just raise her as a boy." LOL
My hubby was anally raped (seduced?) by a high-school boy when in second (see c*nt?) grade, so has this very feminine submissive nature, hates anal sex, loves oral and prefers man on woman (He can do bi, too.) but wants to act like the woman and have me seduce him, sit on him and so on. Pretty cool, ne? Only incompatibility is he wants me to tie him up, but I refuse 'cuz one of my aunts was chained up by her doctor husband for years before she finally divorced him, so I hate that and will never handcuff my hubby no matter how much he begs. Gomen ne? We all have our fetishes and anti-fetishes, ne? Nobody is perfect, but my hubby and I have such a sweet romantic relationship and LOTS of HEAVY SEX for fifteen years now and no end in sight.


LOVE, Pearl Dragon

P.s. Gonna send you an e-mail about G-mail.

Many of our modern drugs have harsh side-affects and cost the “earth”, so the next time you come down with a cold or the flu or stress statistics, why not try a gentle alternative that costs next to nothing?

Instead of immediately forking over large amounts of money for over-the-counter drugs, go to the kitchen cupboard and see what you can find to relieve your symptoms including stress statistics.

Here are some helpful hints for stress statistics …

A simple hot compress applied to the face is very soothing to those throbbing aches and pains of a blocked sinus, while a few drops of eucalyptus oil on a handkerchief can provide welcome relief for similar conditions. While supplements of vitamin C, D and zinc will shorten the lifespan of a common cold, a hot lemon drink is also extremely good. And be sure to cuddle-up in bed when you have a cold, as it will make the body sweat out the germs.

Cool lemon juice and honey are a great soother for a sore throat and gives the body much-needed vitamin C at the same time The juice of one lemon in a glass of water is sufficient. Melt the honey in a little hot water for ease of mixing.

A smear of Vaseline or petroleum jelly will do wonders for those sore lips and nose that often accompany a cold.

A 'streaming cold' where the nose and eyes water profusely, can respond to drinking onion water. Simply dip a slice of onion into a glass of hot water for two seconds, then sip the cooled water throughout the day. Half an onion on the bedside table also alleviates cold symptoms because its odor is inhaled while you sleep.

People prone to catarrh may find that chewing the buds from a pine or larch throughout the day will clear up their condition in just a few days.

Do you suffer from sore eyes? If your eyes are sore from lengthy exposure to the sun, try beating the white of an egg and then spread it over a cloth and bandage the eyes with it. Leave the preparation on overnight. Soft cheese (quark) is also a good remedy for this condition.

For those unpleasant times when you suffer from diarrhea, two tablespoons of brown vinegar will usually fix the problem. Vinegar can be rather horrible to take, but who cares! The problem is more horrible. Vinegar can usually be found in most people's cupboards, so you don't need to worry about finding someone to run to the shop for you in an emergency.

Sleepless? Instead of reaching for sleeping pills, which can quickly become addictive, try this: Drink only caffeine free tea or coffee starting late in the afternoon.. Go to bed earlier rather than later, as being overtired tends to keep people awake. Make sure the bedroom is dark and quiet. Use only pure wool or cotton sheets and blankets. Polyester materials can cause sweat and make you thirsty (if your child constantly asks for water throughout the night, this could be the reason).

And don't watch those scary movies just before retiring! If you still can't sleep, make a tea of lemongrass or drink a nightcap of herbal tea containing chamomile. It's easy to grow lemongrass in your garden or start a flower pot on the balcony for ease of picking. Simply steep a handful in boiling water for five minutes. Honey may be added for a sweetener.

Of course there will be times when you do need modern drugs, so if these simple remedies don't have the required affect, be sure to see a health care professional.
