Two posts today, my lovelies. You'll just have to come back for your Fridays Rock! fix.
Lately I've been enjoying Suzanne's Twenty Four At Heart blog. I can't even remember how I found her, probably some random blogwalk. Something about her writing just touched me. It's not a straight-on humor blog; rather, just a simple, honest chronicle of what's going on with her.
The fun part is that she lives in Orange County and frequently blogs about the bizarro lifestyle there and the characters who live it.
The touching part is that she is recovering from an accident and is chronicalling her journey through physical therapy for major shoulder trauma. As I have already been through physical therapy for my left shoulder and am currently dealing with problems in my right shoulder, this strikes a chord with me. I can relate, even if my problems are a pale ghost of hers.
The icing on the cake - she's about my age, although thankfully I don't feel twenty-four at heart. And that's a good thing, believe me*! In my case, that would be truly terrifying. I'd settle for somewhere in the 35-40 range.
Not long ago she was talking about sex toys (!) and received a 'goodie basket' from a 'toy store' (wink, wink). She described what she got and which ones she liked best, all in a very matter-of-fact way, like she was just sitting down with friends over a glass of wine. As you can guess, that generated quite a bit of buzz on her site. This week she's been running a Decadent Indulgent contest to give away two very important items; a sex toy and a panini press. I mean c'mon, what else could a woman possibly need?!? Of course I'm in!
You can enter as many times as you want until midnight Friday by leaving a comment listing one of your favorite decadent indulgences. And even if you don't get there before the contest ends, go check it out. Reading the comments has turned into quite a fun exercise all on its own.
You'll know if I win when I drop off the face of the earth for awhile. Although it's been many decades since I've faced a sex toy - not sure I remember any more how that all is supposed to work. Hopefully it comes with instructions.
* If you don't believe me, ask Evil Twin. She can testify. (shudder!)
