Fact vs Opinion

A couple of months back, I wrote this post in response to Mayim Bialik’s video where she tackles “open relationships” and does it quite badly.  Many sex educators who understand ethical non-monogamy and polyamory and all spoke out against her video because of how many ways Mayim got it wrong. Two days ago, Mayim posted…

All That I Know

I realized midway through the first meeting of my day that I was not in the mood to be around people.  Let me rephrase that: I was not safe to be around people. As my cohort was midway through explaining, for the 5th time, how something needed to get done, I stepped in and finished…

Ill-Prepared & Guilty

As people were handing her feedback cards, she leaned over across the table and whispered, “Are you, OK, Emmy? You aren’t acting like yourself?” Great, I thought, another reason for me to feel bad.  I was already feeling like today was a waste of my time – a waste of their time – as I…

I Blame The DJ

It’s no surprise that I’m home at 1:30 am after almost 5 hours of taking photos at the local kink party  – and wide awake. I blame the DJ. To be fair, if the energy is right, I start flying higher than a kite even if I really want to crawl into bed and sleep…

Current Mood: Sad Clown That Sings

One of the kids saw Puddles on a TV show – and we were all blown away by his voice.  There are more on his YouTube channel but these are some good ones.

6500 Miles

6500 miles. 11 hours ahead of me. On the shores of the Caspian Sea. And I get a call, “WTF should I do??” Oh, FUCK me! His dilemma, 11 hours ahead of me, was to risk the ferry voyage without a pre-issued visa or not.  People have done it both ways – with and without…

Random Recent Photos

I’ve got no words, but I do have photos.  Back in college, I put up a series of paintings for critique as was the process each Monday morning.  The art professor looked at them all – and asked me what was wrong – why did I want people to leave me alone?  I stood there…

Technology: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly

The good Being able to follow along as G drives on his crazy road trip across 2 continents.  I see where he is.  I can see how far he’s gone.  And, most of the times, I get a sense of if he is done driving for the night.  It’s good stuff.  Fuck, it’s awesome stuff….

Analysis Paralysis

At work, we implemented this application to help us track our project work, and upon seeing it and using it a bit, the entire development team adopted it – hook, line, and sinker.  They tossed out one of the tools they had been using without great success and started using this took for ALL of…

And Now For An Unplanned Day Off…..

This was me this morning. Actually, this was how I was feeling last night too. Yesterday, all day, I had this dull headache that I was fighting.  Every few hours, I’d take two more Advil in hopes that this would be the dose that would help me get through my day. I made a comment…
