Girl PartsThere are about a million and one names for girl parts. I'm not even going to list the ones I DO know. But I find it a bit frustrating that there isn't a word that rolls off my tongue in a way that expresses how I feel about those precious areas.
I have sort of settled on "Pussy". To me, it is endearing, has an old charm, and is just a tad naughty.
Anyone who takes even a casual stroll through my gallery will see many shots of pussies. Close ups. Detailed close ups.
WTF you might ask.
Some years ago a model came in to shoot nudes and asked me not to shoot any images where her pussy lips showed. I asked her why since we were shooting NUDES! She said she thought her pussy was ugly. My heart sank. Why would a lovely young model ever be made to feel that ANY part of her anatomy was ugly? Where did that concept originate? What kept that belief alive? Who said what to her?
I told her I thought it was beautiful and asked her if I could take a photo, as I saw it, and show it to her. Much to my

Hope you all are having a lovely weekend? I am having a romantic evening of laundry and X factor tonight, after a day out yesterday in Birmingham watching the gymnastics world championships in Tumbling, Trampolining and DMT which was pretty awesome.

The Timeless Code of the Eternal OutsiderWhy Drive will be the movie that is remembered in years to come. Film Noir is a genre of “life in the shadows” movies that became popular in America during the uncertain times of World War II. Westerns have remained a shorthand for the American psyche with their sullen outsiders with a personal code of honor bucking the system. Samurai films mirror the lone avenger protagonist, but set against a longing for a lost society of incorruptible values. Now and again a notable contemporary noir or western or samurai film emerges with little fanfare amidst all the commercial cacophony of the louder, bolder, more spectacular action films that rule today’s box office. One such gem of film blending all three genres flashed out of the shadows briefly in 2011. It’s called “Drive” and I think it is the greatest artistic achievement of the past year.The Timeless Code of the Eternal Outsider2 years ago in Personal More Like This
St. Baldrick'sI've done some research about the World's Greatest Shave and decided to do something similar to it in the US. After a browse around the world wide web, I came across St. Baldrick's website. I've organized an event in my area to take place January 18th, 2012. So now it's just a waiting game to get the information I need to set this event in action. I'm thinking about enlisting my local news station as well. We'll see where this goes. At any rate I've bought scarves to keep my head warm, since it tends to remain cold in January. Believe it or not, but our winter sets in after Christmas. Or at least it's been that way for a couple of years. I'm excited, and a little timid at the same time. I know it will all work out.St. Baldrick's2 years ago in Personal More Like This
My goal is to raise over $1,000 dollars. I'm thinking I have enough time to reach, if not exceed that goal. Seth is going to shave his head alongside me. I'm not sure who else will do it with us. Time will tell.
I hope you all are doing well.
Death is a river I have yet to cross"Watching a peaceful death of a human being reminds us of a falling star; one of a million lights in a vast sky that flares up for a brief moment only to disappear into the endless night forever."--Elisabeth Kübler-RossDeath is a river I have yet to cross2 years ago in Personal More Like This
I wasn't the best granddaughter. I didn't pick up the phone when I saw his name flash across the screen. If anything the phone ringing was soothing, more so than his voice. I'm funny like that. My mother said he had a quite death in October of last year. She got to see him two months before he passed. I was hopeful that he would fully recover, so I might see him later on. I couldn't afford to take off. I guess....I'm too much of a company girl.
His death and funeral was hard. My heart kept breaking. I didn't get to say my goodbyes. To say I loved him. To just....be with him. I heard my sisters talk of their visit with him weeks before he went.
Tell those you love that you love them before it's all too late and in vain.

I didn't have pre-wedding jitters in the morning. Shortly after I woke up, I returned to the quarter wash to vacuum and touch up my windows. About an hour went by before I knew it. Even though our escape from the wedding would happen under the glow of the moon, I was still worried about streaks. Perhaps I'm a perfectionist.
After I finished with my car it was time for mother and I to get our hair done. Janice was nice enough to treat us both to divine hairstyles. I was and am still blessed to have her part of my life. The same lady who did my hair for the bridal portraits did my hair for the wedding. Her heart had an iridescent glow. I swear, she's an angel. She spoke to her other customer in Spanish and what she said was translated: "You are beautiful. I'm going to make you look prettier than your bridal portraits." For her to care that much touched my soul. She was true to her word. I left with a bridal glow, the corners of my lips peaked at an angle.
New Series Coming Soon-Whately BasedI;m working on writing up a series to fill the gaps between releases. Unlike Tales of the MSU and the other project I am working on (I am outlining this unnamed project even more carefully than I do the MSU stories-the characters have been dancing in my head for six years, and I want their story to be as well written as I possibly can), this new series will not be outlined, meaning you can expect more of it. As I indicate in the title, it is based in the Whately setting (which means I have rereading to do).New Series Coming Soon-Whately Based2 years ago in Personal More Like This

MetamorphosisThere are three deaths. The first is when the body ceases to function. The second is when the body is consigned to the grave. The third is that moment, sometime in the future, when your name is spoken for the last time.Metamorphosis3 months ago in Personal More Like This
So you wait in this lobby until the third death. There are long tables with coffee, tea, and cookies; you can help yourself. There are people here from all around the world, and with a little effort you can strike up convivial small talk. Just be aware that your conversation may be interrupted at any moment by the Callers, who broadcast your new friend's name to indicate that there will never again be another remembrance of him by anyone on the planet. Your friend slumps, face like a shattered and re-glued plate, saddened even though the Callers tell him kindly that he's off to a better place. No one knows where that better place is or what it offers, because no one exiting through that door has returned to tell us. Tragically, many people leave just as their loved o

Heavy Rubber Calendar 2013HelloHeavy Rubber Calendar 20131 year ago in Personal More Like This
Last year I toyed with this idea, but I think I'm going to bite the bullet and actually do it this year. I have more material, I'm starting earlier and I know more what I'm doing.
It will be a bit challenging because a lot of my photos are "portrait" and not landscape in orientation, so some photos may have a thick "border" on the sides. I'm not aiming for perfection though (no one is) and hopefully this will be a pretty cool calendar to have - I know there are a number of "kinky/fetishy" calendars out there, but few heavy rubber ones. It should be a good deal too - you get 12 prints for a very reasonable price. A few of the photos will be ones you haven't seen yet

So I not only got a chance to meet Eric Larsen, but also to get a crit from him on my comic pages.
Before I get into what he had to say, and how cool it was, let me back up and talk about critiques, and me.
Many years ago I got a very nice critique from Colleen Doran. I knew Colleen from the comic shop I worked at, and it was amazing of her to take the time and give me her objective and professional opinion on my work.
Being young and stupid, I took it way to personal. As if it were an assault on me, and as if she was trying to be mean.
At that time I worked in an amusement park in the summer as a caricature artist. in 5-10 minutes in marker I had to draw a caricature of a total stranger and make them like the drawing. If they did NOT like the drawing they could refuse to pay, and demand another artist draw it. This rarely happened. maybe once or twice a month, but it was brutal. It would take me weeks to fully recover. To me a crit was either you liked it, or you hat

Personally I don't know if the world will "end" tomorrow or not. I expect anything that does happen is due to hysteria making stuff like that a Self-Fulfilling Prophecy. Probably similar to the unfortunate shooting
that took place a few days ago.
What I hope happens is something like a Spirit-Quake that does little if any physical damage, but causes random gender-bending transformations and wardrobe-alterations.
Hey! One can hope! and it would be a lot more interesting!!!
Alas It looks like nothing interesting happened good or bad, I had my suspicions though I would have liked to see the TG/TF/Etc one though...Ah well, Even the bible states that no man may know the day nor hour. So it looks like we just have to wait for the Revelations stuff to get past, and no one knows when that will begin either.
