ironic & cruel (or vice versa)...

...the arrival of my new vibrator(s) and my period on the same day.

Ummmm. . . yeah. . . so sorry about that. . .

Aunt Ruby can be such a bitch, sometimes. . .

You know, Alanis actually had that line in her Ironic song but Sony made her remove. Can you just imagine her singing that?

"And isn't it ironic...don't you think?"

See, now I've not had to worry about timing for almost 20 years. RL was just commenting the other day about how fortunate we've been not having to plan vacations, weekend getaways, and the arrival of special packages around that.

Take a long, hot shower. It'll make ya feel better. ;)

I am both offended AND disgusted. You are off my list of pure, virginal mommybloggers.

I'm still waiting for my deep muscle massage, by the way. You could always use the vibrators for that task in the meantime, since they aren't being used for other things. I hear they work wonders.

Are they entirely mutually exclusive?

I mean, RS and I still have sex during that time. I know a lot of couples don't because its "gross" but sexual stuff IS still possible...

And my most sincere apologies if that was disgusting and TMI.

I saw Aunt Ruby and was like "oh hell, I always called her Aunt Flo" lol

That's like on Hub's birthday I promised him "some fun" and instead he got some "Oh Hon, I'll do it for you next week!" lol

Well, actually, my first thought was along the lines of Cat's and Therese's, but, um, yeah, I wasn't sure I wanted to go there. Not being terribly well-versed on the, uh, ins and outs of vibrator usage. . .

But, FTN - 'virginal mommybloggers'? I'd have thought that was pretty much an oxymoron. . . Well, yeah, OK, except for her. . .

Des - Someone really needs to check her watch and maybe phone ahead and see if it's a good time, just outta curtesy!

Meg - I think I have a bootleg copy of that version buried somewhere with my cassettes!

WWoW - Try as I might, I just can't bring myself to trust their so called "waterproof" claims!

Phyllis - They did show up earlier than expected. The former, not the latter! When the mailman knocked on the door and I saw the Amazon box, I believe my exact words were, while fist shaking skyward, "CURSES!!!"

Cat - I'm so often left to pick up enough messes around here, I figure I'm going to do my best not to add to them! I felt a bit prudish just even admitting that...

BP Dad - I swear to God, if this post is cast in the shadow of Thousand Island salad dressing and me talking about how awesomely cool I am, I will unleash a reign of fury that will cripple the Internet!

Cocotte - One of the two trumpets itself as the "silent vibrator." Silent might be a bit of a brag, but it's not as loud as a bar during 2-for-1 well drink specials!

ftn - Thanks for coming through for me, Numby! One of my purchases appears to be powerful enough to beat off (so to speak) a pack of feral wolverines or pesky muskrats, so it might render you harmed in a deep muscle (heh) massage. Also, they should really key into this rabid animal aspect when marketing these items!

Therese - Ha! Based on my post, almost nothing is too disgusting or TMI here! And also, I'm a "been there, done that," person, too, but I figure these might have to wait a few days.

Lori - My next purchase may be a new shower head, which is dismaying to think I don't have one, considering Tool Man is in a major home improvement store every freakin' day!!

Choppzs - Tool Man is all "Woo! At least that'll be outta the way by my birthday on Saturday!"

Des - who's an oxymoron!?!

Pam - I'll have to consult my AP Stylebook on the proper use of dropcloth/drop cloth! They appear to pack a punch. I suppose if one leaves my hand numb, I should dial it down a bit when I actually can try it out!

Twobusy - (apologizing for any damage to corporate property and/or any projects currently on deadline...)

Heather - In the spirit of full honesty, I hovered over the 'post' option a couple minutes. Soon I wil regale the world with tales of how adorable my kids are and how hot I am for Tool Man, and we can forget this post ever existed...

Well, I'm just gonna say it!

The "apparatus" in question doesn't have to be inserted to emit the movements required by such an object, yes?

It can be used above ground?

It makes me feel so special to know we’re there in our relationship where we can share such intimate details. Just don’t try to share the apparatus with anyone. (Anyone you are NOT married too.)

Bee, I was coming back to post that same thing - but you put it better than I would have... "above ground" sums it up.

If they appear to pack a punch I would say "screw you ruby, I am trying this sucker out post haste", just make sure the kids are napping, and the doors are locked and padded! Seriously tho, if they are great, dont give a review, just a link to the product shopping cart! :)

Bee - Ummm. Yeah. Uh. Yeah. These are dual action items. But yeah, I think I'm bound to wait. (you slay me, Bee. SLAY me!)

Mike - A funny, albeit cruel twist of fate!

Lori - That option has been contemplated, as they are currently stationed on my nightstand, like tasteful little sculptures. If these don't leave up to their built up (or pent up?!) anticipation, I'll go crazy (or crazier than I presently am as I wait, wait, wait!).

Sailor - I've had playdates at such times, but I think I'm gonna keep these things pristine!

Michael - Ha! I considered that, and yet today, I wake up and find two emails asking for a sex toy link exchange, so perhaps my plan worked!

zip n tizzy - It's the looking forward to aspect that's getting me through these tough days!

Always Home - There's no replacing a guy like you!

Madwoman - Um, yeah, so yeah, there's been some exploration, but no spelunking...

Alice - It's this kind of thing that keeps me from saying any word that even starts with "b" with my Mom!

kimmy - Ha! Or something like that!

1blueshi1 - Our cycles are in synch?! This is just like the time I lived with five other girls while in college and the house was a screaming pit of PMS angst. How sorry I still feel for the one dude who lived with us then, too!

Bee - I quite possibly deserve to be on the board of directors at Duracell. Those things EAT batteries. EAT THEM!

April - Oh, but there should be a line of greeting cards for this. Seriously! I think there's a market for that idea!

Bunny - Word.
