Wicked Wednesday: Roses

DSCN1079

 

“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet.” – William Shakespeare

 

IMG_1786I first heard that quote when I was four, spoken by Captain Kirk to Kelinda in an episode of Star Trek called “By Any Other Name.” Kelinda’s race called roses sahsheer, and I wonder if they did smell as wonderfully as the rose.

IMG_1788I’ve always loved roses. I think they’re one of the most beautiful flowers, with a heady, sweet smell. Their blooms are deceptively delicate, and the thorns apt to draw blood if you pick one without care.  I still have my first bouquet of roses, given to me many years ago – the age has made it fragile, the petals blackened and ready to turn to dust at the slightest touch.

In my garden, I have roses of all colors and varieties: pink, orange, yellow, mauve, white, and red. Each has its own unique beauty and wonderful scent, and when they begin to bloom mid summer, it’s heaven to sit outdoors and take in their beauty and their smell.

Surround me with roses, and I will be yours.

What is desire? It’s that twitch you feel, your clit tingling, when you see…or smell….or taste…and if you were to take your finger and dip into your panties, you’d find yourself wet….aroused…and wanting….and trembling…

 1. What three things do you expect from a relationship with a lover/spouse?
The top 3 would be a willingness to be open about matters, the ability to compromise, and respect for each other.

2. What three things do you expect from a relationship with your child?
I think it’s similar – openness, honesty, and respect.

3. How do you mend a broken heart?
I’m not sure that you truly can. You can try, but it’s never the same as it was.

4. What is your favorite therapy (remedial treatment of mental or bodily disorder)?
I don’t know – a hot bubble bath to relieve sore muscles?

5. Who in your life has an annoying habit? How do you deal with this?
My husband – he snores. I deal with it by waking him up, kicking him to get him to change position, or getting out of earshot. What’s worse is when the dogs are on my side of the bed on the floor, and they start snoring – then I’ve got it in stereo.

6. In five words, describe yourself. You cannot use the following words: funny, fun, nice, kind, responsible.
Bright, stressed, contemplative, sad, introspective.

Bonus: If in a long time, romantic relationship do you still flirt? How do you flirt with your significant other?
Flirting can be fun, and I don’t do it often enough. It’s mostly looks and silly, sexy talk.

Wicked Wednesday: Lists

listpicI make a lot of lists…grocery lists, to do lists, exercise lists, a bucket list, Christmas lists, lists of lists…it’s a maddeningly endless cycle.  Granted there are some things I don’t make lists for…but I’d be hard pressed to name one right now.

Grocery lists are essential when I go shopping. I’m an avid coupon user, and I also use a lot of rebate apps, so I always plan out what I’m buying and where, as well as what coupons and rebates I can use. Do I buy things off of the list? Of course. But the list does keep me focused, so I can get my grocery shopping done in under 2 hours.

I have a lot of to do lists, many of which are day-to-day: appointments, meetings, study time, meals, activities – you name it.  Exercise lists help me keep track of what I’m doing at the gym so I stay on goal.

Of course, I have a bucket list – doesn’t every one? I don’t have a lot marked off yet, but items are slowly but surely coming off. And there’s a sexual bucket list as well…

I make extensive lists for Christmas, including what I’m buying for each person and what I’m making for them. I also end up with cooking lists – what to make, how many I need, what ingredients, etc. I also have card lists for this time of year, so I know who I need to send wishes to.

It almost sounds like I can’t function without lists, but I can.- they just give me that additional help organizing so I manage to get things done.
