Your Turn

Have a free for all Friday. Whatever you want to say or promote or sell or give away. I am using it to talk about a friend of a reader named Tyler Brown. You can read more about his story here.

Guess who saw The Canyons last night? I'll answer any questions :)

Its just U said...

I never bought a class ring

Northern Grrl said...

Oooo, The Canyons! Was it any good? I hope it goes to Netflix; it might be like watching an accident, but I really want to see that movie.

EmEyeKay said...

I bought a class ring and sent it to Its just U ;)

Everyone I know has a big butt. Lets talk about your big butt, Simone.

My blog- click on my handle!

VIPblonde said...

@Northern Girl I liked it! It wasn't quite Showgirls quality, but it's definitely a future cult classic. I'll definitely be watching it again

*pouts* Where's mine, EmEyeKay?!?!

I want to sell...my soul to the devil.

The devil turned me down. He said I made him collect bile in his throat and dry wreach. Cunt.

There's femfresh wipes, douche and topical creams. Don't use yoghurt unless you want the cat's face in your crotch. And find someone to hate fuck, and make them eat you out first. Then say "smile! You're on Candida Camera!"

I hope that dude Zander Doyle doesn't show up again to exploit the nice people here at CDAN with his fakey fake t-shirts.
Happy Friday, Bitches!

@little miss - OMG - I used to ditch school in the 80's to go watch PWBA at the movie theater! It's disturbing how many times I've seen it.

It's like you're unraveling a big cable-knit sweater that someone keeps knitting and knitting and knitting ...

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

Fuck yes, Rach. Can we talk about how sore my wrists are? And my jaw! Oh, the suffering a girl endures when she's lucky enough to have a man whose trouser snake matches his shoe size (14). Hurts so good.

I wish jerky people had warning stickers on them. Obvious ones are easy, it's the sneaky jerks that are tricky.

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

@Cookies: We can be friends! Be careful though--I'm the Hester Prynne of this site.

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

Oh Rach, so sucks we live on different continents. No one understands my love for horrific depravity like you do.

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

Can we talk about what to do when your babe is working the double entry and you are in so much pain you want to use the safe word (yellow), but you dont want to wuss out?

I do stick my head under the covers when I fart sometimes. And once, when I was going down on my beloved, he emitted wind from his anus. It wasn't the most romantic thing he could've done, but I should be greatful he didn't Ralph Macchio me (refer to Ueban Dictionary)

Little Miss: you bite your lip and think of John Candy. My safe word is "DEEPER!" Which can be unfortunate in some cases when calling out for anal clemency.

Pip said...

Will the money for that family actually go to that family? Or will it be held hostage for months ala Xander Dyle?

Hmm, I hate emotional vampires. I also dislike coworkers who give you the silent treatment out of nowhere, because they think you at mad at them, and you learn of the intended slight weeks later.

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

I let my man use the same toy in both ends once. Then we gave each other rim jobs. Havent done that again, but i think about it. Maybe tonight my guy will get lucky.

Little Broken Bird said...

I have a 2 year old girl. Not many relatives around. What one piece of advice that you have learnt would you want to impart on her. Doesn't have to be age appropriate now, I can bank it for later! Words of wisdom or do's and don'ts or anything you like

PugsterMom said...

I want to promote animal adoption from shelters or rescue organizations. And NEVER leave your pets in a hot car. Cracking a window is NOT enough. And if you do have a pet, please pay attention to him/her! Dogs especially need lots of love. Thanks! Xo

I only rim if its been thoroughly cleaned out first! No A.T.M!

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

I was completely wasted, but we had just gotten out of the shower, so it was all roses and sunshine down there. That's it. Im breaking the seal on the Cuervo Reserva de Familia tonight. Or in a few hours. Or now.

Miss : DO IT! For me. It's red week, so I'm sorta up on blocks so to speak, aside from the good old missionary, doggy or me on top with a towel underneath. Nothing too dangerous. Hubby hasn't earned his "red wings" yet.

Changing topic completely, I'm about to purchase myself a new Blythe doll, some vinyl from Southern Lord, and a remote control R2D2 for my husband. And penis salt & pepper shakers. My credit card needs a work out.

auntliddy said...

Hi, i have advice for you, if u dont mind. Im a grandma, so ive raised kids and heres what i have learned: you cant change your child. You cant make a bookworm a sportsfan, cant make shy child outgoing, cant make dreamer into a non dreamer. Your job, as a parent, is to help your child get the best possible results with the skills and personality they have. Their nature really doesnt change that much, they learn, with your help, coping skills. And really revel in how completely delightful your daughter is, because im sure shes completely wonderful and so smart. And trust your instincts, you almost always know best. So that, and a million kisses everyday, should do the job:)

I would like to put together a boycott of TVLand, which will soon be airing Kirstie Alley's new show. Which co-stars Michael Richards. I can't think of a more perfect pairing of horrible people. Maybe they'll have Casey Anthony drop by for a guest spot now and then.

I do like Rhea Perlman, but sadly will not be watching her on this debacle.

Fairmaiden327 said...

Ha!

Redd said...

Pugster Mom- you are my hero- that is what I wanted to say! I don't care what you nut jobs do to each other but be kind to animals!

Little Broken Bird said...

That's perfect Auntliddy, thank you! :-)

Redd, kind, but not "too kind" if ya get my drift.

Hello.

PugsterMom said...

Here's my two cents. Set a positive example always. Children learn their life lessons from YOUR behavior. Surround yourself with good people who treat you with respect and that includes men. Your child must always come first before any other relationship.

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

So sorry, Pug, but you can't be allowed to have the last post. I want to talk about having actual sausage shoved up your cunt by your husband, and then enjoy watching him cook it up in the frying pan and savor every bite. xoxo

Ivana Hump said...

Yes and please fix your pets.

Ivana Hump said...

Yeah leave the kids and animals out of the mess

librariantobe said...

Fantastic advice Pugster and AuntLiddy.

Teach your kids good manners. No one seems to value that or common courtesy anymore and it pisses me off something fierce. Saying please, thank you, and sorry if you're wrong (especially sorry!) should not ever go out of style. Your kids are not little angels who poop gold like most people these days act as they are, they are human beings who need to be taught kindness, courtesy, and good manners. Don't be harsh or draconian with them if your kids do something wrong, but don't let them get away with it scot free either and act like they did nothing wrong. Teach them responsibility and accountability for their actions. Okay, rant over. :)

I have synesthesia, quite a few different aspects of it including seeing numbers as colours, being able to feel it when people touch an item of mine (feels like being stroked) and being able to sense colours through my feet. I also have neurological issues where sometimes I 'lose up'. Can't orient myself at all and ep clinging to the floor. It's scary and horrible. I've also 'lost my face' before now and sometimes I'm 'taller' in some parts of the house. Does anyone else have any of these disorders?

I would like to hear more preaching and condemning and judging.

Time sure flies when you skip an hour. ~Jessi Lane Adams


People ask why I skip and I give the incomparable reason of "why not?" ~Author unknown, as posted on iskip.com


Learning to skip has brought control into her life. Whenever she feels all sad, she switches into this wholly happy gait, sliding, hopping, and sliding again; when doing this, it seems as though her head separates from her body, making her feel dizzy and emptied out of bad thoughts. Does anyone else know this trick, she wonders? Probably not, although her Mother sometimes smiles and waves from the window. ~Carol Shields, The Stone Diaries


Skipping is jumping for joy, step after step. ~Terri Guillemets


I don't think it's possible to skip with a frown on your face.... I'd like to see the world's governing and terrorist leaders on a skipping tour through the Middle East and across the subcontinent and China to Korea. ~Sue Irwin, as posted on iskip.com

You are worried about seeing him spend his early years in doing nothing. What! Is it nothing to be happy? Nothing to skip, play, and run around all day long? Never in his life will he be so busy again. ~Jean-Jacques Rousseau

Skipping is a form of flying. ~Jessi Lane Adams


With all its ups and downs, skipping is just one more metaphor for life. ~Terri Guillemets


Skipping isn't for everyone. Getting out of our comfort zones for a momentary skipping escape takes guts. It is much more difficult than many realize. Our ego likes to feel in control and is afraid of what others will think.... When we can learn to simply observe our ego's fear and then choose to skip on despite it, we develop the spiritual strength necessary for inner peace. ~Kim Corbin, founder of iskip.com


Skipping: a joyful impulse, stunted at puberty. ~M. Robin D'Antan


What a hero Tom was become now! He did not go skipping and prancing, but moved with a dignified swagger as became a pirate who felt that the public eye was on him. ~Mark Twain, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer


Skipping is oxygen for the soul. ~Jessi Lane Adams


Skipping by the flowers,
Skipping around for hours,
Skipping in rain showers -
Skipping has magical powers!
~Jessi Lane Adams


There's another powerful benefit of skipping which is that it adds joy and positive energy to the world. Seeing adults consumed by the joy of skipping sends a compelling message about the power of the spirit over fear. When you learn to turn off your logical mind and get lost in the spirit of skipping, it's like exercising a muscle that will help you deal with other fears. As external events become increasingly intense, that kind of inner strength will be more important than ever. ~Kim Corbin, founder of iskip.com

If I had time for only two exercises, I would choose yoga and skipping. ~Terri Guillemets


There was a boyishness about Mr. Clemens sometimes that found different modes of expression. Once, when the long corridor of the second floor of the hotel presented a temptingly empty avenue, he hopped, skipped, and ran, and then gave a delicious suggestion of a cake-walk. As soon as a door opened, however, he stopped and assumed a supernaturally grave aspect. ~Elizabeth Wallace, Mark Twain and the Happy Island, 1914


Out came the children running.
All the little boys and girls,
With rosy cheeks and flaxen curls,
And sparkling eyes and teeth like pearls,
Tripping and skipping, ran merrily after
The wonderful music with shouting and laughter.

Skipping is nature's Prozac. ~Jessi Lane Adams


If you're enjoying your depression, then for goodness sake do not go skipping. ~Jessi Lane Adams


SKIPPING! The hippity hoppity gait that came naturally to us as children, but that the majority of adults haven't done since they were ten... SKIPPING! Like Dorothy and gang did arm in arm down the yellow brick road... SKIPPING! As in expressing joy by leaping happily down the street without a care in the world. ~Kim Corbin, founder of iskip.com

Those moments before a poem comes, when the heightened awareness comes over you, and you realize a poem is buried there somewhere, you prepare yourself. I run around, you know, kind of skipping around the house. It's as though I could fly, almost, and I get very tense before I've told the truth - hard. Then I sit down at the desk and get going with it. ~Anne Sexton

The first time the duchess halted by my side, I whispered to her to calm her gushing spirits, not to meddle with her dress, and for public opinion's sake, not to step so high. I said she could get over just as much ground at a moderate gait; and, beside the noble grand duke, her father, might happen along at any moment. I might as well have talked to the wind. She only laughed that characteristic laugh of hers that silvery laugh that I could recognize anywhere if I were to the leeward, and then, bending a little, she grabbed up the sides of her apparel with both hands, began to jerk it to and fro in a violent manner, threw her magnificent head back and skipped furiously away on an Irish jig step, all excitement, wild hilarity, distracted costume, frenzied motion! A spectacle to seal the eye-balls and to astonish the soul of a hermit! ~Mark Twain (unconfirmed), Atlanta Daily Constitution, 28 February 1878, "The Fascinating Duchess"

Nurses are the heart of healthcare. ~Donna Wilk Cardillo


Nursing would be a dream job if there were no doctors. ~Gerhard Kocher


Nursing is an art: and if it is to be made an art, it requires an exclusive devotion as hard a preparation, as any painter's or sculptor's work; for what is the having to do with dead canvas or dead marble, compared with having to do with the living body, the temple of God's spirit?

During my second year of nursing school our professor gave us a quiz. I breezed through the questions until I read the last one: "What is the first name of the woman who cleans the school?" Surely this was a joke. I had seen the cleaning woman several times, but how would I know her name? I handed in my paper, leaving the last question blank. Before the class ended, one student asked if the last question would count toward our grade. "Absolutely," the professor said. "In your careers, you will meet many people. All are significant. They deserve your attention and care, even if all you do is smile and say hello." I've never forgotten that lesson. I also learned her name was Dorothy. ~Joann C. Jones

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

When I think about all the patients and their loved ones that I have worked with over the years, I know most of them don't remember me nor I them.

But often it is an uncanny yet well honed knack to see beyond the obvious and address, in some way, the deeper needs of the human soul. ~Donna Wilk Cardillo, A Daybook for Beginning Nurses


Always thank your nurse,
Sometimes the only one between you and a hearse.

Nurses are the hospitality of the hospital. ~Carrie Latet

librariantobe said...

Okay, so apparently I'm a condemner and judger and preacher because I think people should be polite. Yup, because when my sister told my niece to say thank you when she got a nice gift and I agreed (gently) she should, I hate children. [/sarcasm] LOL

Anyway, best of luck to you, Little Broken Bird. I'm sure you'll do great. :)

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

At least you recognize and embrace your failings. I would never condemn or judge or preach at you for being a condemning judgmental preacher. xoxo

librariantobe said...

Lol, I'm not failing at anything, dear. Believe it or not, there is nothing wrong with thinking people should be polite and well-mannered.

Let me ask you something, when strangers hold the door open for you or when your family gives you a nice gift as Christmas, do you ignore them and walk on by? Or do you say thank you because someone was gracious enough to do something nice for you? (And people wonder why being polite gets mistaken for flirting nowadays - it's because no one does it anymore).

But for some reason, you think what I'm saying equates to "hate all chidren and scream at them and beat them with a stick", which it DOESN'T and isn't what I'm saying, which is neither condemning or judging (okay, preaching, maybe but Little Broken Bird asked for advice so I'm giving it to her, for that matter, as are you so you're as guilty of preaching as I am). I'm only responsible for what I say, not what you hear or misunderstand.

Anyway, agree to disagree and whatnot and I'm done with this discussion. Good day to you (see, good manners? Nothing wrong with them.) And best of luck to you again, Little Broken Bird. :)

Little Miss Makes A Mess said...

I was never talking to you, lib. Didn't even see what you'd written. I am extremely polite in my other life. Here, I am a troll. You are a sweet person. Now, stop. I can feel the ice around my heart and soul starting to thaw. Carry on with your beautiful sweet self. xoxo, Kym

@librariantobe - I agree 100% with all you've written here, as the mama of two great sons I see what I've instilled in them has paid off.

librariantobe said...

Ah, okay, my apologies then for misunderstanding. No hard feelings, I hope. :) Good day to you.

On a completely OT note, has anyone else been watching Starz's new miniseries The White Queen?

Yikes indeed, Cookies. I'm a crazy motherfucker. You don't know what I'm capable of doing, the boundaries I'll cross, the rules I'll break, the taboos I'll throw out the window, the left turns on a red light I'll make. There's a lot you don't know about me. A lot you couldn't know. A lot you shouldn't know. I'm a rebel, Dottie, a loner.

@ 2yr old girl advice:

HPV Vaccine

Rubbers

Don't think you are in love until you are 25.

What she needs to know: All them bitches on TV and in Magazines have troweled on makeup and they are photo shopped. They don't look like that in real life and neither will she. Don't get hung up on it.
