Awkward Moments (VERY Rated R post)

Standing in line waiting for the cashier to ring up the guy in front of me, I nervously looked around and for the first time was impatient as ever. Usually I'm totally cool with chatty chashiers. I was one of them, once upon a blue moon. It can be boring standing there. The little old man in front of me who I usually would have considered adorable was slowly counting out his change and I continued to glance nervously around the store. WHY of all days was this taking so long. It was a health food store, I could just imagine the stares and thoughts in peoples heads. I got antsier by the second and began jumping around in my place, hopefully looking just cold and not like I was nervous, for really what was not a big deal. FINALLY it was my turn. I place the goods on the little thingy and the cashier had to roll them around for the bar code. UGH, really? REALLY? Then she asked me about their rewards program, to save money. OOH I like saving money! But how long would this take because people are going to walk in the door and line up behind me and see what I was buying. Flashbacks were popping in my head of the one word she could say that would crush me. This had to be the most uncomfortable situation ever.
It was official, buying prenatal vitamins is just as awkward as buying condoms.

The flashback of the last time,
"Congratulations"

The cashier was just being polite, but I wasn't preggo, not even close. I didn't even bother to correct her, because explaining why this is the biggest oxymoron of life would take about the length of the average human gestation time. But really, buying prenatal vitamins when you can't get pregnant, it seems cruel in a sense. However, they're exactly the type of vites I need. Plus they help my hair and nails grow- BONUS!


So when I finally walked out of the store, vitamins tucked safely away in my bag, I could breath again. I mean can't a girl just want pretty hair, nails and skin with out having to worry about the stigma attached from assumptions made from one single purchase. But in all reality I was more so mad at myself, because really, who the heck cares. These people don't know me. It's the little reminders that take you out of your world and pull you back down to remind you that you're just a small fish in a big pond, not the fisherman, who every fish is aware of.

Where am I going with this... oh right. Assumptions and judgements. Never assume anything, never judge anyone. You're just opening up the door to have it come right back to you. However awkward moments are becoming the story of my life.


It's no secret with cervical cancer that there is some "rehabilitation" involved after the radiation. For full details see blog post "Accepting Applications" (Or Click Here) but the coles notes goes like this. Radiation makes the lady bits smaller, tighter and all around virginal. This may sound like a loosey gooseys dream but I'm not exactly a goose and forgive the over kill but was already smaller to begin with. (Hello pediatric speculum... awkward)

When my doctor told me there would be an 80% chance I could have sex again, I think I actually choked on the air I was supposedly supposed to subconsciously be able to breathe.
"Um what about the other 20%, I'm only 25."
Screw infertility, this is my sex life you're now messing with. My questions/comments at every appointment usually consisted of something along the lines of
"Well I can't bone if I'm not alive! When can I bone again? What are the prospects of a healthy sex life doc?"
The answer always involved a vaginal dilator. Well ummm ok, that sounds fun and dandy... not. My one doc was finally straight up with me...
"You know, it will work just as well and probably be more fun to just go and get some sex toys."
SOLD! To the doc who realized I am supposed to be just entering my sexual prime! AdamandEve.com and I have become close personal acquaintances. KY jelly is my new best friend. Let the rehabbing begin :D

So- this seems like an easy solution right? I mean orgasms are directly linked to lessening stress. (Semen is reportedly linked to alleviating depression but thats a whole other convo I don't want to 'spew' on about right now that clearly doesn't apply. ::laughing so hard, so proud of that one::) SO where does the problem lay? I mean I like orgasms, I'm well aware of what this rehab involves, I have all the necessary tools.... Oh right I live with my parents. -_-

Vibrators arn't quiet. It's a fact. We also have a dog who loves to sleep with me, and then there is Dexy who I would never not allow in my room. I'm being rehab cockblocked by my pets and parents. My future sex life is resting upon 8 paws and parentals. This has to be some sick joke.

Options... #1 well shut my door. You would think right? The layout of the house has the master bedroom and my bedroom separated by only a small bathroom. Also, we're a tight knit family, who is not opposed to barging in. Plus the animals get separation anxiety from me. (But yes, yes I do shut my door.)

#2 Wait till no one is home, WHY is this surprisingly rare? They both work, a lot! They both have friends and lives and yet... ::Palm to shaking forehead:: it seems like an impossible scenario.

I'm actually about to go pull a highschool and take my car up to look out point for a little alone time. (Not that I've ever done that........) Moving on.

#3 The bathroom... umm what am I a dude? Plus its right next to the master.

Realistically these are a lot of excuses that can be overcome, but I think it comes down to the fact, I'm having trouble mentally getting over the fact that I'm .... pleasuring myself in my parents home. Everybody masturbates. If you don't you're a straight up liar... but really, why can't I get over it. I've even tried looking at it differently.
"This is not masturbation, this is rehabilitation."
Maybe it's a glaring respect issue, because I would never have sex while the rentals are home (except for one time with an ex, but that was the shortest dog walk of life MOM!) I won't even bring boys or boyfriends to my house unless we've been dating for quite a while. But this isn't even a human, this is B.O.B. (My battery operated boyfriend) who is stashed with the guys I'm cheating on him with. (Apparently I have a few B.O.B.'s in my arsenal.) The whole point is to expand so I had to buy varying sizes, which apparently do varying things. Its like a fascinating science, I'm not even mad, I'm impressed!
Also for the record "stashed"- hiding this stuff is not easy. My mother knows which drawer to avoid, but its a little harder telling your dad
"Ummm don't look there, no seriously dad don't!"
Guys don't do subtle and he will prod with questions until he'll instantly regrets that decision.

SO lets get down to it, this is doctors orders. 3x a week for at least 20 minutes. (No seriously that's what they said.) Also, if we're taking away the sex element, it's not just so that I can have a future sex life but also so that I can get pelvic exams with out feeling like I'm giving birth. Honestly its more for the sex life.

Now for the cancer part of it, because this whole post couldn't just be... ya know. After each session I also have to insert creams. A special antibiotic of sorts because this is a painful process. It's not all fun and games. I'm prone to infection and tearing is inevitable. I also have to switch it up and occasionally insert estrogen creams to help soften the tissue making it easier to stretch. Its a messy process. Its an awkward process. My vagina and I are at war for Orgasm's which technically should make us both very happy. #ThisIsMyLife


So as far as awkward moments go, it's time to suck it up, throw on my wicked headphones, turn on some porn and give her hell. Either that or my future Plenty Of Fish tagline will be "Only Small Penis's Need Apply!"

Awkward- is now just officially the name of the game :)

    I came across this article on my FB and thought you might enjoy it. I think I remember reading that you are a Peyton Manning fan. Just a bit of trivia--during the summer of 1969 I went to a Fellowship of Christian Athletes camp in Estes Park, CO. My individual group had two counselors assigned to us---Steve Zable, OU, and Archie Manning, Ole Miss. I think Archie was a college junior at the time. Both went on to play Pro, albeit Archie was much more successful than Steve. I've been a Denver and New England fan for as long as I can remember, but I was pulling for Denver---because of Peyton. Hope you enjoy the article.

  2. The first step, of course, is a cute little crossbody bag in a Miami-ready color. We’d go with the MICHAEL Michael Kors Selma Crossbody, filled with essentials like Kors’ classic aviators and slightly sparkly small leather goods. (It’s South Florida, after all – go shiny or michael kors outlet online go home.) Oh, and we can’t forget a watch; fashionably late is one thing, but chronically tardy is another, and the most stylish thing is to know the difference. Dab on a little lip gloss michael kors outlet and perfume and you’ll be set from poolside brunch to after-hours dance party. You can shop a full selection of Kors’ Basel-ready pieces at MichaelKors.com.
    But something goes awry circa the handles. I like the michael kor outlet store knotted shoulder strap – it seems appropriate on this kind of bag where it might look cheap on something more tailored or formal. But then there’s the tote straps for hand-carrying, and they’re so plain michael kors wallets and flat that they look like a complete afterthought. The shoulder strap isn’t so ridiculously long that you couldn’t use it to carry the bag by hand or in the crook of your arm, so michael kors outlet online sale why add them on anyway?
    I think it might be. Or perhaps the problem is that his brand doesn’t emphasize it enough – I’m not exactly sure what the issue is, but the brand hasn’t mk purses outlet “caught” as a major power in handbags like one would expect when you consider the huge financial and marketing arm that the brand has behind it.I talk about Princess Michael Kors himself every week in michael kors outlet online sale my Project Runway recap, but it’s much more rare that we sit down and discuss one of his handbag designs in a serious way, despite the fact that His Royal Highness’s brand put out a michael kors outlet big line of bags every season.

Meanwhile, the analyst consensus for LVMH's expected earnings per share (EPS) growth for 2013 is 6 per cent, compared to 15 per cent for the sector."LVMH has underperformed louis vuitton outlet mainly because of big question marks hanging over the development strategy of Louis Vuitton," said Chicuong Dang, fund manager at French asset management firm KBL Richelieu.Jacobs' departure, to take his eponymous own label public, is part of a series of leadership changes at Vuitton, the most significant in two louis vuitton sale decades, as it tries to reposition itself as a more exclusive, less ubiquitous brand.In a sector where expectations of sales rather than earnings growth have tended to drive share performance, LVMH's main problem is that with Vuitton already making 7.3 billion euros in annual sales, it is too big louis vuitton outlet stores to buy substantial growth.

  6. “In terms of actual capability, they’re comparable to what makes up the bulk of the U.S. forces today,” Roger Cliff, a senior fellow at the Washington-based Atlantic Council, said of China’s arms industry. In August, Norinco treated diplomats, military officials and defense contractors from 44 countries Ray Ban 3483 to a demonstration of its latest tank designed for export, state media reported.

  7. Oakley also announced Monday it has filed a patent infringement lawsuit against sunglass and ski-goggle maker Smith Sports Optics Inc. in Ketchum, Idaho, cheap oakley sunglasses and its parent company Safilo America Inc.The lawsuit alleges that some Smith sunglass models--including the Slider Bazooka, Toaster and Buzzsaw--infringe on Oakley's XYZ Optics patents.

Oakley maintains that the XYZ Optics technology, used oakley outlet in all of its sunglasses, lessens lens distortion in glasses that are curved both vertically and horizontally for better eye protection.
    Because the outer lenses pop on and off magnetically (and it really is that easy), wearers can keep tinted and/or self-darkening outer lenses available and oakley sunglasses exchange them when going in- or outside. There’s no need to have a separate pair of sunglasses.I’ve found two drawbacks to the Superfocus glasses. The first occurs when I move between seeing something at a distance and up close. I often have a book or a warby parker magazine in front of me when watching TV, and to move from one to the other requires a manual adjustment of the Superfocus slider each time. With my regular glasses, I just tilt my head.

  8. Perhaps in a nod to his earlier music video, Freedom, which included appearances by Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford and Linda Evangelista, George has 2015 michael kors outlet enlisted Kate to accompany him in this latest video, and joked on Twitter that there would be “serious eye candy… I’m not talking about me!”George has said the song is his thank you to 30 years of music-making as it is being released exactly three decades since his first single with Wham! entered the charts.‘I am truly blessed, and michael kors sale “White Light” is my thank you to everybody who has been a part of my success,’ the music star said in a release via his publicist. ‘And I mean everybody, including the press!’ Oh George, you’re welcome.This week we heard that the Repetto shoe store in Paris (the fashion pack's first stop for ballet pumps and cute flats) has michael kors deals seen sales of it's Michael Jackson inspired loafers rise dramatically.
    Lyndell and her team were trying to capture movement in the hair and as you can tell they did a marvellous job.To get the look follow these steps:Massage a mix of surf spray and thickening spray into your hair to get that wispy texture.Taking a little texture and a little at a time scrunch through the ends as if it was mousse.Leave out a 1 inch perimeter of hair all around the head - a sort of halo, if you like.Gather up the hair left in the middle and 'pull, push, twist and screw it up into a messy handful of hair' explained Lyndell. Take a couple michael kors black friday of large French pins to secure the hair.With the halo of hair take some spray de mode and a hairdryer and gently blast at your hair with both to get that windswept look, then by eye pin down the 'bulk' of the hair left leaving the flyaways.My tip: think more breezy seaside than gale force winds when creating this michael kors outlet online sale look for everyday wear.When ELLE received an invitation to 'Access All Kors' we were, understandably, intrigued. Not least by what it actually meant…
    Michael Kors described his collection as that feeling of ‘catching the wind in your skirt’. He said he’d been thinking of: ‘How summer vacation makes us feel like kids, and not wanting to lose that feeling michael kors black friday deals 2015 even though we’re back to school.'

  9. The memory of her shabby secretarial skills still makes her laugh out loud: “Gerry gave me the first memo to type. It took michael kors uk me, like, half the day, and she came to me and said, ‘I thought you said you typed really fast,’ and I said, [she switches to a tiny, sheepish voice] ‘Well, compared to my friends [I do].’?”What Sweeney lacked in IBM Selectric skills, she made up for in her ability to critically assess TV movies and specials that might end up on the network. Not much later, Laybourne, a former schoolteacher herself, taught her the art of negotiation the low-tech way. Sweeney would sit at her boss’s side as Laybourne haggled into the telephone receiver. “We didn’t have michael kors outlet online a speakerphone,” says Sweeney. “So I would listen to what she was saying to someone we were buying a series from, and then she’d get off the phone and say, ‘OK, remember when I said that?

    The mini-show followed lunch for 20 or so top clients at Holt’s Cafe yesterday following a fête at his Bloor Street store on Wednesday night, with hostess Hilary Weston presiding over the affair in an aqua Oscar de la michael kors Premium Outlets Renta tunic and pants.Elsewhere there was much Michael Kors Spring 2013 about, including a dermatologist in a colourblock dress, and a capital markets trader a peony pink sheath.

But as with the notion of balance, Sweeney michael kors tote isn’t buying it.“I’ve never signed up for the glass ceiling idea,” she says. “I always felt it was placing a limitation on myself and on every other woman. I believe I’m going to succeed and fail based on what I do, based on my intellect, based on the decisions that I make, based on the people that I choose to work with . . .We can all figure out reasons why we didn’t succeed. Or we can just blow past everything.”
    The movie’s focus on female friendship drew Allen to the role, as did its portrait of midlife 2015 michael kors outlet women who have fun going after — and getting — exactly what they want. "The story starts out with Jessica’s character’s husband having just died; he was older, she was a second marriage for him, and the movie shows that you don’t have to be 20 to have an incredible relationship," she says. "There’s a lot of variety and possibilities out there."Allen is concentrating more on spending time with friends and her 14-year-old daughter, Sadie, than on romance at the moment (she and Sadie’s father, Peter Friedman, split in 2002). "I’m not really dating, but I’m open to michael kors outlet it," she says. "I was never a big dater, ever, and sometimes I feel the same as I did in high school!" She smiles and rolls her eyes when contemplating what’s in store for Sadie’s teenage years.

  10. Frankfort said that while he sees Coach as an American brand, with nearly 80 percent of sales originated in the U.S., the second-largest opportunity to grow is in Japan.
