Can I Speak to the Man of the House?

Being in sales for a national consulting company, I make my share of cold calls every day to corporate executives in accounting/finance/IT departments. Thus, when telemarketing companies call me at home, I tend to listen to the pitch even though I usually say no to whatever they’re selling.

Having a Panick Attack

It’s about 16 hours before my sister and nephew arrive. I’m almost done making the place look presentable. But, I am suddenly feeling panicky. They will be here until January 2nd. While I am glad they w’ll be staying with me, I am nervous about the whole thing. My younger sister and her daughter who lives here in Chicago will also be spending Christmas with us. This is the first time since Mom died 8 years ago that we will all be spending Christmas together. This should make for interesting times. Related posts: The Mad Rush Begins Marriage # 2 […]

But I keep coming back as it offers me insight into a world I know nothing about. I feel like a voyeur. Related posts: Complicated Alliances

Faking Orgasms

Women.com recently published an article advising women how to fake an orgasm. Do they really think we women need any help doing that? Sadly, most women are experts at faking it! What we women need, is more guidance on how to: 1) have them period (most women don’t experience orgasms during intercourse); 2) have them more often; and 3) have multiple ones. Nuff Said!
