And here I bitch...

The girl from this post? I'll call her CeCe since she didn't have a name on the blog yet. Anyway, she sent me a text today to whine. She only has enough money for sushi or drinks but not sushi and drinks so she's like zomg bummed out about having to go to her cousin's birthday party tonight. You know, since she only has cash to get dinner or drinks but not both. Nice. I can either put gas in my boyfriend's car so I can go to yet another job interview today or yeah, that's pretty much it. I'm already in a kind of bummed out mood since our 4 year anniversary was on Tuesday and we didn't do anything because he worked from 4 pm to midnight. We were going to celebrate on Sunday instead but had some stuff come up so he didn't have the money to do anything. I definitely didn't have the money to do anything, lol. And cooking a nice meal at home wasn't an option since we didn't have the money to go buy groceries for a nice meal, either. Also, we don't live alone so there's the issue with a big lack of privacy. I'm awesome at coming up with cheap alternatives to things but we don't have money for cheap alternatives either, lol. Anyway, I just ignored her texts because I didn't feel like dealing with her while she whines about petty shit like her husband not giving her enough money to get sushi and drinks. I'm STILL sick and haven't been able to really talk for 4 days straight now. Which will make today's job interview interesting as it made the one on Friday interesting. *Sigh*

Since I ended up ranting, I would also like to rant about something else. I'm SO FUCKING TIRED of people telling me I need a job. Really? I didn't fucking notice yet. Thanks so much for cluing me in. I've gone on 9 job interviews in the last 7 days. I have another job interview tomorrow and am supposed to be hearing back from a few some time this week. It's not for my lack of trying that I'm not employed. I had one friend who kept saying it so I screen capped a bunch of stuff to show how many places I've submitted a resume to, how many places I've applied to online and etc so he would shut the fuck up. And he did. And apologized because he said he honestly didn't think I'd be looking so hard. Which I can see coming from someone who has worked for the same company for 8 years and hasn't had the pleasure of trying to find a job lately. The week before last, I applied to 23 different places. I got 3 call backs in all that. I've applied to so many places, it's ridiculous. I've gone on more than the interviews I've just mentioned recently too. I've heard so many different excuses on why I didn't get a job and then not heard back from many more. I've had several assholes try to hit on me during an interview which I just can't deal with. I had one guy that was interviewing me actually SNIFF ME and tell me I smelled good and ask what kind of perfume I was wearing as we were walking in to sit down and begin the interview. He asked me ONE work related question and then spent the next 30 minutes flirting while I filled out an assessment worksheet and pretty much ignored all of his attempts at flirting and trying to find out personal information. He called me sweetie, I informed him my name was Ashly and I would appreciate him using that instead. Obviously, I didn't get that job and probably for a good reason. I could see that was going to be a sexual harassment issue waiting to happen and I probably would have ended up punching him in the face. And yet, I sat there and seriously contemplated for a couple minutes if I should just deal with it for the money because I need a job that badly. I contemplated on it, thinking I'd keep looking and quit when I found another job. It didn't matter anyway because once I told him not to call me sweetie or any other pet name because I found it unprofessional and inappropriate, I think he realized I wouldn't be having any of his shit and that "opportunity" went right back out the window. Which, like I said, was probably for the best because that wouldn't have ended well. I don't tolerate that kind of shit, at all. I got way off track, though. My original point here is that I'm sick of people telling me I need a job. No one knows that better than I do. I'm also sick of people assuming that since I'm still unemployed, I just must not be trying hard enough. FUCK YOU. That's all I do. I apply to jobs, I sit at home. I don't go out. I don't go anywhere unless it's to go on a walk to clear my head, go pick up job applications, take applications back or go on a job interview. That's what my days consist of unless I get lucky and stumble across an odd job to make some cash. Which I'll cover here in a minute. Most of my time spent online is applying for whatever I can find to apply to online. I've even been applying to some of the crap on craigslist that's just for making some money here and there. Which is helpful even though it's not ever big sums of money. I'll take whatever little odd job I can find for some cash as long as it's legal and doesn't compromise my safety in any way.

So having people assume I'm lazy or assume I'm not trying or catching people talking shit about me is really pissing me off lately. And normally, I don't care what people say about me. And at first, I didn't let it bother me when I had people saying that stuff to me. I knew what they were assuming but I also knew that it wasn't true so I didn't care. Now it's just getting annoying because I'm already super stressed, extremely frustrated and it's hard enough to try and stay optimistic about shit when you've been trying for months and haven't had anything work out. It's hard to just keep going out and trying constantly and not get defeated and completely down on yourself. It's exhausting mentally and emotionally. Some days, I've wanted to just lay in bed and sleep all day because I feel so down about shit but I won't let myself do that. So lately, I'm just ignoring the people who say it or going off on them and then ignoring them. I don't need any one's negativity when I'm trying to keep my own from weighing on me too much, lol.

Happy Monday!

This and that..



I posted this picture on my Tumblr page a little while ago. I just posted several pictures by the same photographer, actually. His photos are GORGEOUS. Most of them are real but some are digitally composed. If it's digitally mastered, he says so. If not, it's not. This one here? Not. Fucking beautiful, am I right? If you want to see more photos like that, you know, absolutely beautiful and occasionally breathtaking, I urge you to click the link and go through his sets on Flickr. Also if you have a Tumblr page, let me know. I'm always looking for more people to follow. Don't follow me if all you're looking for is erotic or naughty pictures. I rarely post anything like that on mine. There's a million other pages you can follow for that. I don't have a want or need to be that saturated in sex, though. No offense to anyone at all. I do follow a few people who post amazing, sexy stuff. I just don't use Tumblr expressly for that and don't immerse myself in it. Erotic photos stop being so sexy if you're looking at them every day, at least to me they do. It just becomes something normal and loses some of that appeal. I'm only speaking for myself, lol.

If you've read my blog regularly or for long enough, you've probably seen me post about my friend Fangs before. He's one of my best friends. He did one of my Through Their Eyes posts a while back also. I convinced him he needed to be on Twitter, even though I don't remember exactly why I was trying to get him on there in the first place. Even I don't always understand the methods in my madness but I digress. You should definitely go follow him, if you haven't already. @FireFangs66. He's awesome. :D

My younger sister sent me to her Tumblr page last night to read an argument she had and won with a stupid girl in one of her circles. She's not friends with the girl but they have mutual friends. Totally not going into the debate but it was a good topic and my little sister owned this girl's ass by the end of it. It makes me smile to see my younger sister has grown into such a logical, level headed little person. Who turns 20 this November. Holy shit, how did that happen? Seriously, she turned 16 last year I think. Anyway. I hadn't ever peeped at her Tumblr page before even though I knew she had one. I felt like it would be some invasion of privacy. Which is ironic because it's a public page on the internet but still. I didn't want to go look at it anyway. Since she sent me there to read the debate, I went back a few pages to see what kind of stuff she had posted. I found? Awesome stuff. Lots of funny stuff that made me laugh and plenty of things that are similar to things I have posted or would post. I snagged a few because they were great and I wanted to share them. And no, I will not be sharing my little sister's Tumblr page with anyone so don't even ask.





I'll probably post these again on Tumblr one day, maybe. That girl's nails? OMG WANT. That's too fucking cool. I don't even like getting my nails done and have never once gone to get a manicure or pedicure from a salon or nail place. I can't afford something like that right now but maybe one day if I can find someone to do that for me, I'd go for it. :D

The last one is from the movie 10 Things I Hate About You. Still one of my favorite movies, ever. I love it. I haven't watched it in a few months either so I think it's about time to remedy that one day here soon. :)

Fun Factory Curve

I've wanted to try the Curve by Fun Factory for many months now but sadly, I couldn't get my hands on one to review. That is, until recently, thanks to the cool people over at Adult Sex Toys. I love love love g-spot stimulation. Don't get me wrong, clitoral stimulation is all well and good but it doesn't do it for me the way g-spot stimulation does. I know it's not what everyone loves (and I even know a few people who don't care for it at all for some "crazy" reason ;D) and if that's the case for you, then this clearly won't be the toy for you since it's specifically designed for delicious g-spot stimulation.

It's not a small toy so if girth isn't your thing, this might not be the toy for you. It's measurements are 8 1/2" in length (only around 6 3/4" is insertable, though) with a diameter of 1 5/8" and a circumference of 5". I personally love the size of it but I like that really full feeling you get from a girthy toy.

The Curve is 100% Silicone and has a smooth, raised texture swirling around it. It quickly warms to your body temperature which is nice. I dislike when toys can't retain warmth. The bulbous head is very smooth and that raised texture forms around it to form a bump. The bump can be slightly problematic if you're not using lube or not warmed up enough for it yet, though. Make sure you're either using lube (no silicone lube on silicone toys!) or if you don't like lube or don't have any on hand or just prefer natural lubrication, please be warmed up for it. I didn't use lube the first time and was only moderately wet, so there was some definite discomfort upon entry. That bummed me out at first because I really wanted to like this toy. I figured out the problem quickly and rectified it with some lube. After that, no problem at all with entry or during thrusting.
I also tried inserting the toy, holding it in place and then rocking my hips back and forth. Totally not as fun and didn't get as much enjoyment out of it used that way. It didn't feel bad, just not as intense. I didn't feel any pain or discomfort using the toy in that way.

Removal was a different story. Playtime was over, I was plenty lubricated due to the orgasm I achieved thanks to the wonderful g-spot stimulation, but I had a little issue with that bump when removing the toy. Apparently, the bump didn't want to go peacefully or painlessly. I found that if I angled the toy upwards a little, bring the handle closer to my body, I could remove it without the bump giving me any discomfort. Which is nice because no one likes to feel like their dildo is trying to pull their vagina out with it.

The toy is super soft and pliable. Oh so very pliable. I thought that would make it difficult to thrust with but I didn't have any problem with that at all. It has a handle with a loophole at the end which makes it extremely easy to keep a good grip on the toy during use. I love toys with handles like this on them because you don't have to keep intently focused on keeping a good grip on it. It's just latched right there on whatever finger you slide into the loophole and you're good, though, I still kept a nice firm grip on it. Like I said, the toy is very pliable which helps if you want to bend it a bit. I found bending it lessened some of the severity of the curve, which was fun but I didn't prefer that sensation. I probably would have been fine if the toy had been a bit less pliable and a bit more firm. Not because I had any issue with it being too floppy but just because I prefer my dildos a little more firm. If you prefer something rather firm without a lot of give, I wouldn't recommend this to you.

I didn't try it anally because, well, I wasn't putting that bump in there to see if it would give me any trouble during insertion, thrusting or removal. Especially during removal, lol. I like everything in my body to stay where it's supposed to be. ;)

You can use this toy with another person (though it's not harness compatible) but make sure you direct them on the best way to do it for you. It's easy to thrust this into another person the wrong way and cause them pain so don't be afraid to be vocal and give direction. ;)

The raised, glossy swirls on the toy feel nice but after a while, I stopped noticing them. I felt them at first but then once I had used it for a few minutes, I only noticed them if I changed the angle of the toy. That's really not a deal breaker for me, though, given the amazing g-spot stimulation you get from the dildo.

Cleaning is easy. Since it's 100% Silicone, you can clean it multiple ways. Toss it in the top shelf of the dishwasher, boil it, bleach it with a 10% solution, use your favorite toy cleaner, use it in the shower and then lather it up as you clean off with soap and water; whatever floats your boat.

I was super happy with this toy and have used it many times. I love the shape, I like the cute design, I love Silicone (because it's such a great feeling material, yum) and I love the handle. I really like the intense g-spot stimulation I get out of this toy as well. I think if the bump on the head didn't give me any trouble upon removal and if it were just a tiny bit less pliable, it would be my favorite toy. Even with that in there though, it's still top five for me. :D

Happy Thursday!

Happy Anniversary!

I have to delay the Gigi review another day because today is a totally important day and I need to write about something special instead.

Today is our anniversary. Who?
The Boyfriend and I, of course. That's right, as of today we have been together for 4 years. 4 YEARS. I know to you married folks and people who have been in committed long term relationships that are going on 10, 15, 18, 25, 37 and on up years, 4 years isn't much but, it's a long time, okay? Okay. We've never broken up and gotten back together a week or a month (or longer) later. We've never separated. We've never taken a break because we "needed space" or some such thing. We've probably both wanted to kill the other a few times here and there. At least, I know I have, hehe.

It's funny to see the way you can grow and change because of a person. Take The Boyfriend for example. Due to my standards for things being higher than his were, he ended up changing the way he expected things to be. Be it from the quality of food he was ingesting or the way people treated him. The thing that annoyed me most about him was that he was so nice, he tended to let people take advantage of his kind heart. He didn't see that but let me tell you, I definitely did. I don't mind that he's kind and has a big heart. In fact, I love that about him. I do mind people taking advantage of him. So, I started pointing out how, when and whom it happened with. He learned and now he's still a kind, generous guy but not to people that will take advantage of his compassionate nature.

Another thing about him? He's more open-minded because of me. :D He grew up rather sheltered where as I, wasn't sheltered at all. We grew up very differently in a lot of areas. He was so afraid to try new things and move out of his comfort zone. I spent so much time moving around, meeting new people, trying new things and just enjoying as much about life as I could that I don't really have a comfort zone to be settled into. I'm a free spirit in a lot of ways. I'm open-minded, spontaneous, adventurous and yeah, sometimes a little (or a lot) impulsive. Him? Pretty much the opposite of all of that. Now? He's more willing to try things he wouldn't even consider before. He's better about going new places, doing new things, trying new foods and pretty much more open-minded in general. He's more open to not having every little detail planned out as long as there's some structure to the plan I hatch because of me and the way I am. Which makes things a lot easier. It's hard to be someone who loves trying and doing new things and be with someone who's scared to do the same. It was more a matter of breaking the shy, reserved guy out of the shell he was in, though. If it hadn't been in him to begin with, it wouldn't be there now.

Now take me for example. I love to be out and about. Doing this, doing that. Even if it's sitting at someones house hanging out, it was better than being at my house doing nothing. I liked to go out all the time. It doesn't mean I spent any money because a lot of the time, I didn't. I have a knack for finding free stuff to do as a matter of fact. I just hated staying at home when there's so much world out there to see and take in. My guy on the other hand? He enjoys going and doing but he also enjoys sitting at home and relaxing. Due to this, I learned to compromise on wanting to be so active and "on" all of the time. Now, I can easily spend a Sunday at home and watch sports and movies all day. I'm content to not go anywhere and do anything. Which currently, due to the state of things, is a good thing because I'd really be losing my mind if I hadn't learned to be content to stay at home.

Another thing with me? I used to have a really bad temper. I'm talking punching walls, breaking stuff, getting so fuming mad that my heart would be pounding in my chest, cussing enough to make a sailor blush, throwing shit at walls (sometimes people); full out rage fits. I would go off over shit that didn't even matter just because it was easy to piss me off. I don't have a lot of that going on anymore. The Boyfriend? It's so HARD to piss him off. He rarely gets angry. He's a mellow kind of guy. I realized that I really needed to work on my anger issues and figure out why I got mad and why I got violent when I got mad. It wasn't healthy to be that way but I didn't realize it until I had The Boyfriend for comparison. Also him telling me to calm the fuck down a few times helped, too. As did him questioning why X,Y,Z would piss me off so badly. It made me look at myself and realize I needed a change.

I don't think you should ever change for a person. If you don't like the way your SO dresses, leave it alone. It makes them, them. I don't believe in making the person you're with change because in my mind, you're just building them into something you want them to be and not accepting them for who they are. I do think that sometimes, we as people can't see the things about ourselves that we need to work on or the things about us that are toxic and need to go. I didn't see how my anger was toxic to me then but I did and I definitely do now. I think that part of a relationship is becoming a better person because of the person you're with. There haven't been any drastic changes for either of us, just minor adjustments where we've both improved for the better.

No one in the world, not a single on, understands me better than my boyfriend does. He just gets me in a way that I didn't think anyone ever would. It's funny because a lot of people think I say odd and random things just to get a reaction out of people or just to shock them. I swear on my life, I don't do that. My mind just works in odd, quirky little ways. I don't sit there trying to think up some of my randomly odd ideas or crazy thoughts. They're just there and it's just the way I am. He knows some of the thoughts that lurk in my mind that I probably wouldn't tell anyone else. I'm comfortable enough with him to admit things to him (some of them being only thoughts, desires and ideas I've had and others being things I've done or tried) that I haven't ever told anyone else about and that surprises me. I'm fairly open as it is for the most part but there are still things I've always kept from everyone. Things that I'd think or do that would kind of weird me out so I never felt okay sharing them with anyone.

He knows me inside and out. All my flaws, quirks and awesome traits and he still loves me. Even when I go off on him for something stupid because even if my temper has gotten much more under control, I'm still a hot headed, moody bitch at times. :D He's patient, kind, loving, honest, loyal, trustworthy, understanding, non-judgmental, sweet, funny, goofy and wonderful. He treats me well. Better than well. He'll go without things if he has to to keep me from going without something. He goes out of his way for me. He takes care of me when I'm sick. He comforts me when I need it. He makes me laugh when I'd like to punch him or other people in the face. He understands me. He calms me down when I'm so mad I'm seeing red.

He made me realize I wasn't some weird, horrible, angry little person who didn't deserve to be loved. I was such a broken individual, no matter how hard I tried to pretend otherwise. I was so ridiculously miserable when he came into my life. It kind of stings writing that because even now, I have trouble wanting to admit how terribly unhappy I was.
He makes me so happy. And part of that is because I'm a better person because of him. Part of it is because I was finally comfortable enough with someone to open up to them, tell them what was wrong and how I was hurting and he helped. He never judged me for anything I said or anything I felt. He held me while I cried once I was comfortable enough to let him see me that vulnerable. He didn't always tells me things were going to be okay because sometimes he didn't know how to help me through something. He worked through it with me when I tried to sabotage our relationship because I thought I didn't deserve someone as great as he is. And even through everything, he stayed with me and worked through things until I was in a better place. I still have shit I'm trying to work through but he helps. He'll always listen, he never pretends to have all the answers, he never judges and he never tells me what he thinks I want to hear because he always knows that what I want is the truth, even when it's going to hurt.

I'm a better person because of what he's brought to my life. Today makes it 4 years since we've been together. Honestly, it doesn't feel like it's been that long at all. I can't believe it's really been that long but it has. I think that's a good thing. Hopefully I'm saying the same thing every year from now for the rest of the time that we're together.

Oh and don't ask why we've been together so long and aren't married. We're not in any rush and we're definitely not in any financial situation to even think about getting married. There's also no law that says you have to marry someone if you've been with them for 2 years or more. It always irritates me when people ask why we're not married yet, as if there's some kind of timeline that's acceptable and we've passed that time right on by without doing what we were "supposed" to do. If we get married, it'll happen when it happens and not before then. ;)
Happy Anniversary baby! I love you. :)

Happy Tuesday!

Rant, rant, rant...

I had originally planned to post my review of the LELO Gigi today but.... after my interview yesterday afternoon, I started feeling really crappy again. I had been feeling sick for around 2 weeks, then I felt better for a few days, then yesterday it hit me again and I started feeling like shit. I spent most of the afternoon and evening laying in bed so I didn't get my review completed. Even though I spent most of the day in bed, I didn't sleep at all. Awesome. I hope this shit doesn't get worse. NyQuil, do your best, okay? Thanks.

Speaking of the interview, it lasted for a little over an hour and a half. The other two girls that got there at the same time as me left 30 and 45 minutes before I did. I swear, if I spent that much time talking to that dude and it doesn't result in a job; I'm going to pull my hair out. That was my 4th interview in 3 days. I have 2 more today, which I will hopefully feel better for. Then I have another on Tuesday. If none of these work out, I might possibly have a nervous breakdown. Not really. I'm too strong for that. :D It's just so damn frustrating and I'm so broke. And not like other people who are "broke" but have their parents giving them money for gas, eating out, seeing movies, buying junk they don't even need, spending time with friends, etc. I have a friend who's unemployed and not even looking because between her parents and her husband, she's got her bills and other expenses covered. Yet, she always complains about being broke because them giving her money "doesn't count" because it's not "her own" money. I go to job interviews and sometimes have to have my boyfriend take me to them because it's the only way I'll get there. And then I sit at home the rest of the time bored out of my head and trying not to feel worthless because I'm not working. That's not even the half of the troubles either so don't judge based on that but that's pretty much all I'm willing to share, honestly. So, it annoys me when people whine and complain to me about how "tough" they have it when they're doing better than a lot of other people are. And it irritates me more when they don't even realize they don't have it as bad as they think they do. It makes me want to bash their heads in and open their eyes. Hell, even as shitty as stuff has been for us lately, there are still people who have it worse off than we do. So, I don't complain which is why you've not seen me blogging or tweeting about anything like that over the last several months. Though, my mom was awesome and wired me some money (my family lives in CA) for medicine and stuff last week because I couldn't afford any medicine. If you're someone online and this upsets or offends you, it was only a rant about people in my real life so don't take it personally. Though, if you do take it personally, you might want to think about why it irks you. But anyway. Sorry, didn't mean to rant there, lol.

Seriously can't believe the Blackhawks swept the Sharks yesterday for the Western Conference finals. Now the Blackhawks will be playing in the Stanley Cup Final... against either the Flyers or the Habs. I honestly expected Chicago to win it. I predicted they would do it in 5 games. Possibly 6. I didn't think they'd straight up sweep the Sharks in 4 straight games. I expected the Sharks would have a little fight in them and at least win one game. Oh well, though. Now to see who from the East is going to make it. Most people I know are on the Philly bandwagon now since they're leading the series.

I have comment moderation on right now just because of the annoying amount of spam comments from bots. Also from an annoying "anonymous" person who keeps trying to engage me in some petty online bullshit. I don't get sucked into drama very much in my real life. I'm damn sure not getting sucked into internet drama. It's just stupid. Plus, I know who it is and why they're pissed at me. If they (you) want to discuss anything, they (you) can e-mail me and act like a mature, grown, adult.

While I was laying in bed last night at some point, I was watching In & Out with the boyfriend. I hadn't watched it in a few years, though. I saw a news story on the local news that reminded me of it for some reason, so I got into my CD/DVD binder and pulled it out, happy I still had it and happy it wasn't scratched.
While I don't think the ending is all that realistic in most cases (which is sad because I would love to see the opposite be true!) I do love that movie. It's one of my absolute favorite feel-good movies.

I'm done now. I'm going to take some medicine and pass the fuck out right now. Hopefully, I'll feel better tomorrow.

Happy Monday!

Failure..

"Without disappointment, you can't appreciate victory."

That is a quote from one of my favorite movies, Gone In 60 Seconds.

It's one of my favorite quotes in general. I love it.

Something I used to have a hard time with was not succeeding at things. I'm a very determined, ambitious individual. I succeed at most things I set my mind to. I don't say that trying to be arrogant because I'm not arrogant, it's just true. So, when I occasionally failed at something, I got annoyed with myself. I'd talk down on myself and then push myself to do better. Even over trivial things. I used to have such a difficult time with failure. I held myself to ridiculous standards and was way too hard on myself. I wanted to be better. In every way. I never felt good enough, for anything or anyone.

I've since learned that I won't always succeed at everything I attempt and that's okay. It doesn't make me weak, it doesn't make me stupid, it doesn't make me anything more or less than what I already am.

I've also learned that the quote I started this post with is so true. I always liked it but I didn't always fully understand what it meant. I do now because it's so true. Facing disappointment in life makes those victories that much sweeter when they happen.


The only way I could truly fail at something is to never try at all. At least if I don't succeed, I usually learn something about myself in the process or I learn something new about something else. At least I tried rather than being too afraid or too lazy to attempt something. I never look at things as failures anymore. Life is just experience after experience. Some are better, some are worse but they all offer the chance to gain something new. Even if it's only a perspective, a lesson learned, a funny story or something else but any of that is better than nothing and I never view it as a failure.

Happy Friday!

Oops!

I had a really long post written out. It was sad, emotional, beautiful and about one of my best friends and how his boyfriend has taught him that he's deserving of being loved because he's an amazing human being. It was such a good post.

And then, I go to publish it. Instead of going to the page it should, it says to me some bullshit about an error. I go back, post gone. I go to the edit posts page and ONLY 1/4 of the post is saved in the draft.

NDKNSJKSNDKSWJN!!!! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!

So, I am going to re-write it but not today.

Anyway. I have another job interview today. And the bitch from the casino party party planning business sent me another e-mail today but since I didn't write about that yet, I won't say anything else about that until I post about the drama there. If I post about it. Heh.

Happy Thursday, y'all!

Comments, please?

Rainbow in the dark...

Y'all know I rarely ever write on here about famous people. I hardly watch TV and we only have basic network TV anyway. I don't keep up with celebrity drama or read the tabloids. Mainly because I just don't give a damn what people I've never met do with their lives. I don't see a point in the fascination (sometimes obsession) people have with celebrities and their lives. I won't get off on a tangent about that, though, because that's not what this post is about.

Once in a while, I do post about famous people. Usually musicians and sometimes athletes. Almost always because one that I did really like and admire has passed on.

Ronnie James Dio
(July 10, 1942 – May 16, 2010)

He died 3 days ago. A few people I know were surprised to find out that this bummed me out. He was "before my time" you know, since I'm all of 24 years old. Which I guess is true. However, I listen to a lot of music that would be considered "before my time" to be honest. Aerosmith, Led Zep, Pink Floyd, Aretha Franklin, Phil Collins, Frank Sinatra, Journey, The Temptations, Boston and the list goes on and on of people who were famous before I was ever even born and in some cases, before my parents were born. I like a lot of old music.

Dio was one of my mom's favorite metal musicians. He was her first live metal concert. She loved his music. I get my appreciate and love of metal from her. She turned me on to people like Dio and other hard rock and metal acts that were "before my time" so to speak. So see, from a young age, I've been rocking out. ;) So because of my mom introducing me to his music, I liked Dio as a kid and kept on liking him.

So when she sent me a text to tell me about him passing on, I felt a bit bummed. There's another great musician that I didn't get to see play live and now never will. Though, I found out from her that he had stomach cancer and had to cancel the upcoming tour he was planning because of being too ill. So, like most instances like this, it's sad they're gone but wonderful that they're no longer in pain and suffering. His music will live on and I, like so many others, will keep rocking out to Dio for years to come.

This is and always has been my favorite song by Dio.



Happy Wednesday!

Review: Micro Power Egg

The Micro Power Egg by California Exotics is a remote control egg vibrator. I was apprehensive about it because most toys I've received to review from C.E. have been decent at best. I figured what the hell and decided to give it a shot. I've tried plenty of eggs and bullet vibes that I've been less than impressed with and have wanted to find one that I actually liked. I admit it, I'm picky so finding toys I really like is some what of a challenge.

If you want the specs on the toy such as length, weight, etc then just give a quick little click right here and you'll find them listed on EF's page on the left column of the page. The measurements are accurate. There's only one spec that's inaccurate but that has to do with the toy's function. Which I'll get to later in the review. :)

After I opened it and cleaned the egg with soap and water (because I always wash my toys before I use them, lol) I rolled the egg around in my hand. The rubber cote felt velvety and silky in my hand, which I dig. I don't mind hard plastic but I don't actually want to feel cool, hard, plastic. I popped two AA batteries into the controller/battery pack and then went to hit the button to turn the toy on.


And... nothing.I checked to make sure I had the batteries in properly. Check. Screwed the cap to the battery compartment back on. Hit the button again. Still nothing. I tightened the cap up until it wouldn't tighten anymore and hit the button yet again. This time, it worked. Also, the button looks quite large but really, the whole oval isn't the button. You have to hit directly in the center of the oval to turn the toy off. That's also how you cycle through the four settings and turn the toy back off. If you skip the setting you want accidentally, you'll have to cycle back through them all to get back to the one you want. Also, there isn't a quick way to turn the toy off if you're in need of such a thing. You have to cycle through all the settings to turn it off. So, if you're having fun and someone walks in, there's no discreet one button push for turning it off. That's not a problem for me but I know for some people it is. So if you want something that turns off with a single click, this isn't one of them.

It says the toy has several functions; vibrating, escalating and pulsating. The product description on EF says it's so and that would be because the package the toy comes in says it's so. My gripe is that I don't find that to be true. There is no escalating function in my opinion. To me, escalating is a vibration that starts out slight and then increases in intensity. There isn't a setting that does that. All four settings have the same level of intensity, they just go in different rhythms. The first setting is quick, fast pulses that run steadily over and over. The second setting is slower pulses that have a very slight pause between each pulse. The third setting pulses twice at a slow rhythm and then there's a slight break (not even a full second) before the pulses start again. The fourth setting is a constant, steady vibration. None of those are what I would consider to be escalating by definition. Which is honestly fine with me because I don't tend to enjoy escalating sensations in bullet vibes. However, to someone who saw that in the product description and considered it a selling point, they would be disappointed to find it doesn't actually do that.
It packs a nice punch for such a small egg running on two AA batteries. I was pretty happy with the intensity of the vibrations. I like the first function and the fourth function the best. I only like the toy as a clitoral stimulator. I did insert it and try it out vaginally but just didn't dig it. Though, the vibrations still felt nice.

The remote control opens at the bottom to insert the batteries. The cap is easy to remove and easy to screw back on. The toy is waterproof and there is a seal around the bottom cap to keep water/liquid out of the battery compartment. I had no issue getting batteries in and out of the compartment. They fit nice and snugly but didn't prove to be a hassle inserting or removing. Which seems like a boring detail but if you've ever had to spend several minutes trying to get batteries in or out of a toy, you know how nice it is to have something that is easy going.

The toy's cord that connects the egg to the control pack is covered in a thick seal to protect it from water/liquid. The cord is pretty lengthy at 26 inches so using it in any position should be easy,

I used it in the shower and didn't have any issue with it during or after. I've since used it a few more times while in the shower and it's still working just fine and there's never been any moisture/liquid inside the battery compartment.

I was also happy that the noise level wasn't bad either. I have really sensitive hearing, to the point that most vibrating toys are annoying to me. Or to the point that I tend to easily over hear conversations, even when the people doing the talking are 20 feet away from me. Keep that in mind if any of you ever meet me. There will be no mumbling insults at me under you're breath because I'll probably hear it, lol. Anyway the point here is the noise level is decent. It's not whisper quiet but it's not a little noise machine either, thankfully.

The size of the bullet and the control pack makes it easy to store, hide or travel with which is a plus in my book. I don't have a lot of space to store regular every day things so toys that can fit in small spaces are great for me.

Clean up is easy. Warm water, soap, rinse, blah blah blah. It's attached to a battery pack so there's no putting it in boiling water or your dishwasher. Well, you can but be prepared to buy another one if you do, lol. ;)

I'm definitely happy with this toy. I've used it several times already and will continue to keep using it. It's still not my perfect bullet but it'll do nicely until I find the one that *really* does it for me. ;)
Happy Tuesday!

Urgh urgh argh...

I've been feeling unwell the last couple days. At first, I just thought my allergies were being more obnoxious than they usually are but as the day went on, it became clear that wasn't all of it. I think I have a sinus infection or something along those lines. I had a mild fever but it seems to have hit the road, thankfully. Not fun. I would like it to feel better very soon, please and thank you.

Fangs and his boyfriend were in town yesterday and they were super awesome and brought me over some minestrone soup and some Gatorade. They wanted me to come over the Fang's sister's house and eat chicken and stuff off the grill but I wasn't up for that. So, they brought me soup and Gatorade before they ate and got down with their Rock Band for the night. <3 style="font-size:85%;">(No, NOT Crosby.)
I just thought it would be great to see Montreal make it to the conference finals. Which they did. I had a feeling after they scored their first goal 32 seconds into the first period that it was going to be a good game for them. And it was. You could see how bad they wanted it and they came out and got it. Good for them. Something that does piss me off though? Seeing all the Penguins "fans" saying that Marc-Andre Fleury needs to go. I'm not saying all the Pens fans were saying that but I saw a lot on Twitter and other sports websites saying that. Seriously? He had a bad game but I think Fleury is a damn good goalie. Your precious Penguins offense isn't entirely what got you to the playoffs and kept you there for as long as they lasted. A killer offense won't win a game without some good goal tending and some good defense. In my opinion, Fleury is a good goalie and just because he didn't play well yesterday, so many fans start shouting "trade" now? That pisses me off, no matter who the team is. I can't stand fair weather "fans" of any team. That's the end of my rant there. The Chicago/San Jose series is going to be interesting for the Western Conference final. I don't like either team but hey, one of them has to win to go play for Stanley. The Bruins/Flyers need to finish it up so we can see who the Habs will be playing for the final in the East. Flyers won last night to force a game 7, by the way. No worries, once hockey season is over, I'll have baseball to talk about. Exciting, right? ;)

Happy Thursday!

Through Their Eyes: The Drinker

My last Through Their Eyes post was on November, 2009. So, I decided it was about time to do another one. If you're new around here or just don't remember, T.T.E. is where I get someone from my real life to answer some questions about themselves and then answer a crapload about me. Hence, you get to see what someone in my real life thinks about me. Fun times, right? If you want to see the other posts in the Through Their Eyes posts, click here and check them out. Anyway, here is the fifth one! Enjoy.

Hi, my name is: The Drinker apparently ;) Very fitting blog nickname too I might add! lol

1. The one body part I never want to quite working would be: my penis. Seriously.

2. My favorite sport to watch is: football, hockey, baseball, soccer.

3. My worst habits are: biting my nails, not keeping my car as clean as I should and procrastinating like a motherfucker.

4. My favorite kind of cookies are: free ones that someone else baked haha. Especially homemade peanut butter chocolate chip cookies and homemade sugar cookies. ;)

5. My biggest fear is: that the world will run out of beer before I die! Or bears, really big spiders that may attack me in my sleep and clowns.

6. My comfort foods are: cheeseburgers, lasagna, lobster bisque, fried chicken with macaroni and cheese, pizza and cake.

7. I get complimented most on my: sense of humor and hairy yet muscular legs.

8. People tend to think I am: an asshole but I'm not, just sarcastic and deeply honest and they're too thin in the skin to handle it. ;)

9. People say that I have a great: heart, sense of humor, Elvis impersonation.

10. I never leave the house without: love in my heart, a smile on my face, wallet in my back pocket, keys, cell phone and some gum.

11. My relationship with Ashly Star is best explained as: simple at times and complicated at other times, depends on some things but she's always a really good friend to me for whatever reason and I love her for always being there for me.

12. Ashly would be the first to know: if I got pregnant because I know she would do the right thing and start exploiting me properly by calling sleazy tabloids rocking the shit out of the "first man pregnant" thing to make us some money.

13. I have known Ashly for: Almost 9 years.

14. Ashly's worst habit is: hmm I guess expecting too much from herself (if you can count that as a habit?) and peeling her nail polish off right after she paints her fucking nails lol.

15. The thing I love about Ashly's personality is: she's fun as hell to be around, has a great sense of humor and some how the weirdest/most interesting shit always seems to go down when she's present.

16. I envy Ashly's: budgeting skills.

17. I pick on Ashly about: her weird ass eating habits lol.

18. Something about Ashly that makes me shake my head: she freaks out over june bugs but snakes she's okay with.

25. A big misconception about Ashly is: that she's a cold-hearted person. She has a big heart, just doesn't let people close to her often or easily and doesn't show her emotions that easily and it gives off the impression that she's cold.

26. People may be surprised to know that Ashly: can name off ridiculous amount of sports stats about hockey players that aren't on the Stars, can burp louder than most men, doesn't like watching porn and she hates peas for no apparent reason (which is lame because peas are delicious.)

27. The last time I hung out with Ashly we: went to see a movie, got lost, ended up on a rooftop, dropped Nerds (candy pieces not nerdy kids that would be mean) off of the same rooftop, ate at IHOP then stayed up until sunrise talking and drinking beer on my back porch.

28. The meanest thing Ashly has ever done to me is: punched me in the face and gave me a bloody nose.

36. Ashly gets really pissed when: people drink and drive.

37. I go to Ashly when I need: someone to talk to because she always listens, isn't judgmental, will always be honest with me no matter if it hurts and it's really easy to tell her any and everything because of all of that. plus she gives good advice or verbal beat downs (talking sense) when needed lol.

38. Ashly's best physical feature is: her eyes because they change colors and her boobs.

39. Ashly's sense of humor is: sarcastic, random and twisted.

40. I'd choose to be on Ashly's team in a game of: basketball, baseball, hockey, paintball, laser tag, team air hockey, team monopoly and any drinking game in which you may need a partner for lol.

41. If Ashly were an animal, I think she would make a good: penguin or tiger.

48. If I could take Ashly on a vacation with me anywhere, we'd go to: Europe and see lots of different cities ;)

49. When Ashly gets drunk, she: is pretty much how she is when she's sober just louder and laughs more.

50. Something that surprises me about Ashly is: how she has the balls to be so honest with people. I've heard her say some shit before that I would just never have the balls to say to anyone.

The End.

I love these. It's fun for me to read once I get them back from my friend's and I hope everyone reading enjoys them too, lol. I'd do them more often if I could get more people in my real life to agree to it, lol. So you know, any of my real life people reading this right now (because I know some of you spy on my page and act like you don't) can feel free to speak up and volunteer to do one of these in the future. That would rock, thanks. =)

The best advice..

Sometimes, I think the best advice we can get is to take our own.

Happy Tuesday!

Where the wild things are...

I have nothing against people bringing kids into sports bars. Places like Buffalo Wild Wings or other places like that. Wings, beer, burgers, 50 TV's all playing various sporting events, etc. If you're going to bring your kid in there, fucking pay attention to them, though. Hell, Buffalo Wild Wings has awesome video game things you can give your kids to keep them amused. $5 will keep them playing and amused for an hour or more.

I've seen this plenty of times. People bring their young kids in and then let them run around the place. Which is annoying and isn't safe. A few months ago, when the Boyfriend and I went to watch the Stars game and eat, there was a lady and her husband sitting at the bar. They were eating and downing beers. Their daughter who looked to be 3 or 4? She was running all over the bar area, trying to chatter at random customers. Then when she would go back to mom and dad, they would toss her a large bouncy ball. Seriously. One of them would toss the ball, the little girl would chase it, play with it for a while and then take it back. They would either toss it again or hold on to it. If they held on to it, she would jump around to get their attention. They pretty much ignored her and kept drinking more beer and talking. She would run around, dancing goofy little dances or hopping up on bar stools. At times, she would try to talk to random people. At one point, she went out the door to the patio dining area and her parents didn't even notice. One of the waitresses led her back inside then her parents looked perplexed for a moment before ordering more drinks. They tossed the ball for her to chase a bit more frequently after that but ultimately, they weren't paying much attention to her.

I don't get that. She could have wandered off outside on the patio. Someone could have kidnapped her. She could have easily gone through the patio gate and wandered out into the parking lot and gotten hit by a car. It's right by the freeway, she could have wandered out there. It's in a huge shopping center. There is plenty of stuff she could have wandered off to and gotten hurt or worse.

I can get, as parents, you don't get a lot of time to go out to eat and drink beer on a Sunday afternoon. I can get that you might not have anyone to leave your kid with or you might not have been able to find anyone for the day. Maybe they did have someone but that fell through so now they have their kiddo with them while they have lunch and drinks. I don't have a problem with that. I do think it's wrong to ignore your child that way though. It's also irresponsible to not pay attention to what your kid is doing, where they're going and who they're wandering up and talking to. The ball thing irked me too. They literally would take it and toss it, not really watching where it was going and not even paying attention to if she was going to go get it or not. It was like playing fetch with a dog except most dog owners are more involved in their game of fetch with their pets.

Another thing that irked me was that they both drank a shitload of beer. I don't know if they were drunk or not. They might have high alcohol tolerances. I don't care if you're drunk or just tipsy, don't fucking drive after you've been drinking. Especially when you're going to have your child in the car with you. I CANNOT STAND people who drink and drive. It fucking pisses me off. You want to drink yourself stupid, fine, go ahead. I do it from time to time myself. Getting behind the wheel and driving after you've been drinking is stupid, irresponsible and reckless. You put yourself and other people at risk. Even if you're tipsy, it's still wrong and you're still impaired. I don't give a fuck how "good" you think you drive after you've been drinking. I don't care that you're "only tipsy" and can "drive just fine" or that you're "only going a few miles" so it's okay. You probably think you sing like a rock star or can dance better than a professional too. That doesn't mean it's true and it's not okay. And yes, it's something that is very personal to me and don't EVEN try to argue or reason with me about it because I believe to my core that it's something you do NOT do. I was in an accident caused by a drunk driver who was "only driving a few miles down the road" too. I was 5 when it happened. I'll be 25 this June. Almost 20 years later, I STILL have issues and things physically wrong with me from the damage that was done to me the night that asshole thought he was okay to drive and rear ended my mom's car. I have scars I'll look at for the rest of my life and I have medical issues I'll deal with for the rest of my life because some dumb fuck thought he was "fine" to drive "a few miles down the road" after he had been drinking. I got off track though....

I just don't understand why people go out with their kids and then allow them to run all over the place and not pay attention to them. This isn't the first, second, third or twentieth time I've seen it before. I have friends with kids. Those same kids come out to dinner with us sometimes, too. My friends never let their kids wander off or run around like they're at home. They enjoy their adult time and they pay attention to their kids as well without letting them run all over the place, screaming and yelling, etc. It can be done.

I know it happens in other establishments too. Grocery stores, the mall, etc. It seems like in sports bars, it's worse. It's like they're in a sort of contained environment and they know their kids can't go far so they let them run around while they eat, drink and socialize. Plus, unlike other restaurants, sports bars are loud and noisy so no big deal if their kids are loud, noisy and running around. And trust me, as a waitress, you can be fucked if you say something about it. Chances are, you're going to piss the parents off if you can find a way to tell them their kids have no business running around in there. It's not fucking Chuck-E-Cheese but say something about it and you're going to get bitched at, possibly have them want to bitch at your boss and definitely not getting a tip. So, as long as they're not hurting anyone, themselves or damaging property, you deal with the annoyance. Though, guaranteed in most cases if the kid gets hurt, the parents are gonna act like the blame should fall on someone else. Of course, it couldn't be their own fault for not making their kids behave.

I just really don't understand why you would take a child into a place like that and then not pay attention to what they're doing, let them run around, etc. Though, I don't understand why you would take your child anywhere and not pay attention to what they're doing but that's not the point I'm on right now, lol. So, I'm curious, do any of you ever take your young children into places like that? Are you more willing to let them run around or pay less attention to what they're doing/how they're acting because of the environment they're in?

Happy Monday!

Wish me luck... :)



Clicking the picture takes you to my Tumblr.

The lyrics I used in the picture belong to the song "I Don't Believe You" by Pink. Click that link to watch the video. It's a lovely song. Plus, Pink rocks.

I'm up to something today. I hope it goes well. If it goes well and works out, y'all will hear (or you know, read... ;)) about it next week. If not, y'all won't hear anything else on what it is I'm up to, lol.
I hate being vague but I always feel like I'm jinxing it if I say too much too soon, lol. Wish me luck, please and thank you. :D

Happy Thursday.

This and that...

If you haven't, you definitely should go check out the video for the winner of the sex toy contest that I posted yesterday. ;)

I got an invite to a Facebook group that was actually cool. Usually, my friends invite me to things I pass on. "Mustache Ride Monday", "If you hate getting food stuck in your teeth" and other nonsense stuff. Granted, I joined a few that are nonsense to most people but I don't invite anyone to them. I got a good one yesterday. "Make It Illegal to Protest at Military Funerals" is of course, a group created because of a certain group of people whose name I won't even mention. Most of y'all should know who I'm talking about. What other group of people protests funerals besides the one that won't be named? Douches.


If you don't follow me on Twitter, you're missing out. ;) So, I'm going to post a little of the random, pointless crap I tweet about right now.

AshlyStar: My tip for today: Socks go on before the shoes. Don't try it shoes first, it will not end well. You're welcome.

AshlyStar: Too bad people don't have a mute button

AshlyStar: Why are there no robots to roll around doing my laundry for me? The Jetsons were so misleading about the future.


I posted this to my Tumblr yesterday.



Click the picture to go to my Tumblr and see the bigger version of it. The angle that this photograph was taken at? Fucking awesome. Not to mention I watched the game and know the action that was going on the moment this got snapped. The player positioning and the angle just rock. Too bad that one Shark that I *really* can't fucking stand (more so than the others, lol) is in it but oh well. Still a kick ass photograph.


Law Abiding Citizen and The Blind Side (especially the The Blind Side) are two of the best movies I've seen recently. L.A.C. just because I didn't figure out everything and have the plot and ending figured out before the movie was over. I hate that. The Blind Side is just heartwarming and amazing. And a damn good movie for anyone who wants to blame the world around them for why they can't succeed as well as someone else. It's touching and quite good.

Happy Tuesday!

The winner?!

I KNOW WHO WON THE SEX TOY GIVEAWAY!

In case y'all didn't know. I wrote down the name of every single person who commented on a piece of paper. Then the people who only tweeted about it went on a piece of paper. Then all the little rectangles of paper went into a box. Then people who commented that also tweeted about it and/or posted on their blogs about it got extra entries. Then I shook them all up and picked a name at random. You know, to be fair. As fair as the luck of the draw is. So, I KNOW WHO WON! :D

Except, I can't get the fucking video to upload, so y'all don't get to know yet, lol. SORRY! It's 3:37 AM here and I need to go to bed. Tired and I'm not feeling well. If I can get the video to cooperate and upload like it's supposed to, I'll have it up sometime Saturday afternoon/evening. If not, it has to wait until Monday. I hate what technology wants to be a bitch. Pfft.

And yes, I know I could just do it without the video. I could just say who won and be done with it... but, I went and put the effort into doing a video and more so, I tried repeatedly to get it to upload and no dice. Now, it's a matter of technology not beating me. I will prevail.

Have a great Saturday everyone!
