A funny drunken story

11 cm Sex Toy Left Inside Woman For Ten Years!

I was reading an insightful post on SexToys twitter feed (don’t ask me how I got there) when I accidentally clicked through to their womens range of vibrators (over 500+ toys!) and I realised just how mainstream sex toys are, and how their use is undervalued, unappreciated and certainly stigmatised – surely it’s sex positive position nowadays to embrace toys that make us happy?

Anyway .. here is a drunken sex toy story I read about ..

Every emergency room doctor has a few good stories and we love to hear them, especially when it comes to weird objects that they’ve found lodged inside patients. With a myriad of excuses

Wine Blogging Wednesday #62: A Grape By Any Other Name

This post originally appeared Oct. 15, 2009. When I moved to Tumblr, it was lost in the move. It’s my pleasure to resurrect it & say cheers to all my fellow Wine Blogging Wednesday peers.

Tales From A Dusty Old Wine Diary

Text originally published Oct, 27, 2009.

Recently I rediscovered my first wine diary. It was a simple book I used to use to capture labels & tasting notes as I tried wines for the first time years ago. It’s an amazing trip down memory lane to see what I was sampling in my wine infancy. So many of these wines helped me form opinions I carry to this day, but there are also a few exceptions.

The first time I smelled Salice Salentino, I thought it smelled like feet – & not in a good way!

Perhaps the most embarrassing memory is a page devoted to 1998 Amberhill Vineyards Chardonnay. I recall tasting this wine with my companion at a

What’s the most ridiculous wine tasting note?

I offer this one, excerpted from Terry Theise’s “Reading between the Wines” which makes me think of this scene in Sideways:

“This dramatic wine has the burnish of torched sienna, that hint of Tuscan chicken, perhaps even pullets, that gamey, feathery aroma; a dishy first impression of guppies spawning & bracken roasting in the Castilian sun, & the high wind blowing from offshore when a garbage scow has recently run aground, not exactly fresh passion fruit, but passion fruit after it has been chewed by a horse that’s just run through a heathery dale, you know, sort of sopping wet fetlocks & old dogs; & the finish, oh, just a portrait of nasturtium, or shuttlecocks dipped in quince
