  1. 10-things-dumbdommeMy current celebrity crushes are Henry Rollins, Marc Maron, Rachel Maddow, and Neil DeGrasse Tyson (not necessarily in that order).
  2. If I find a pair of shoes I like, I’ll buy four or five pairs, typically all in the same color.
  3. I can read text upside down as fast as I can read it right side up.
  4. I used to sing at weddings and funerals to make extra money. If I never hear “Ave Maria” or “Amazing Grace” again, it will be too soon.
  5. At one Eastern Orthodox Catholic funeral, a priest accidentally hit me with a thurible (a brass incense holder suspended from chains that the priest swings around during the service). The weight of the thing (and the surprise) knocked me backwards up against an open casket. That was the last funeral I ever agreed to do.
  6. I’m religious about monthly smoke detector checks and daily sunscreen.
  7. I hate tulips.
  8. As a child, I spent many summer afternoons painting matryoshka dolls with my grandfather.
  9. At the moment, my favorite power tool is my Black & Decker Mouse detail sander.
  10. I’m fairly adept at picking locks.

  1. What a great fun post!!!
    ”Oh, you were finished! Well, allow me to retort.” <= Favorite movie!!!

    1. All I can say here is “Rachel Maddow!” *sigh*

    2. With shoes, I'm content to have one decent pair (IE. Without holes in the bottom)

    3. I'm rather dyslexic, so it looks, and reads about the same to me, either way.

    4. HA! My sister's high school friend was named Grace, and I used to call her Amazing Grace. She hated it… Also, I was not popular in high school.

    5. I'm right with you on the not doing a funeral thing. I don't even like going as a guest. The only reason why I'm even going to my own is… You know, dead.

    6. I'm not religious about anything… Oh, wait… Clean socks and underwear very day. OK, I take it back. I'm religious.

    7. I feel the same way about cheap Dollar Store packing tape, and Lexmark printers.

    8. As a child, I kinda hid from my grandfather, because like most of the old people in my family, he was kinda creepy.

    9. I've never tried to sand the details off a mouse before. (Although I did pull the wings off a dead fly once)

    10. Hey!… I'm fairly adept at locking myself out of places… Go figure.

    • I’m not religious about anything… Oh, wait… Clean socks and underwear very day. OK, I take it back. I’m religious.

      If you’re going to be religious about something, clean socks and underpants are the things to be religious about!

      I feel the same way about cheap Dollar Store packing tape, and Lexmark printers.

      Yes to this!

      IHey!… I’m fairly adept at locking myself out of places… Go figure.

      Have no fear! I can probably break you back into whatever you’ve locked yourself out of… :)

  2. Picking locks seems like a very appropriate skill for a domme. I don’t know why.

    I joined a local atheists’ Meetup just so I can go to a presentation by Neil DeGrasse Tyson that they are hosting. I’m not quite an atheist, but if you won’t tell…….

    Always delightful!

      Well, if I ever lock boy into something and lose the key, hopefully I can get him back out. :) Or not… ;)

      I think I love you. :)

  3. I’m beginning to think you are a real live actual person (vs. a devious construct engineered by some multinational corp. for the purposes of snaring sub boys/girls). Your details are just too absurd/endearing to be counterfeit. :)

    I’m afraid to ask, but I’m just too curious to let it pass: could you (would you) explain how you discovered your upside down reading ability?

    • I’m beginning to think you are a real live actual person

      I’m not. I’m a figment of your imagination.

      (vs. a devious construct engineered by some multinational corp. for the purposes of snaring sub boys/girls).

      But… what do multinational corporations want with sub girls and boys?

      I’m afraid to ask, but I’m just too curious to let it pass: could you (would you) explain how you discovered your upside down reading ability?

      I’m an international spy. I learned I could read upside down during a training exercise where they hung my by my ankles and had me read Othello to a room full of elderly women. Umm… but keep the whole spy thing on the DL… it’s a secret, k?

      P.S. I’m not absurd. You’re absurd. I’m just endearing.

  4. Hells yeah Henry Rollins, dude’s a maverick, he’s definitely top of the list of my man crushes.
