It's all about choices, Faith. The ones we make, and the ones we don't. Oh, and the consequences. Those are always fun.

Spike's Bitches 49: As usual, I'm here to help you, and I... are you naked under there?

Spike-centric discussion. Lusty, lewd (only occasionally crude), risqué (and frisqué), bawdy (Oh, lawdy!), flirty ('cuz we're purty), raunchy talk inside. Caveat lector.

"There are few hours in life more agreeable than the hour dedicated to the ceremony known as afternoon tea."

My favorite Wacoal bra broke yesterday. The wire came out so far it nearly stabbed me in the throat. It seemed like something that should be posted about in Bitches.

ION, my inlaw's were supposed to take ltc for her first sleepover ever this weekend, but TCG's stepmother is sick so they cancelled. ltc is at school right now and doesn't know yet, but she's going to have a major meltdown. I spent two weeks convincing her it was okay to go, and she was finally excited about it. We're taking her out to a restaurant tonight to soften the blow that has burgers and milkshakes for her and cocktails for me.

It's important to have a strategy! Milkshakes (and cocktails) to the rescue.

Thanks, Hec.

We're also setting up her new bed this weekend, and we are going to have to move around some of her furniture to accommodate it, and I really didn't want her to be here for that. I wanted it to be all done and set because she hates change as much as her momma does and she's going to give us trouble about moving things.

and I really didn't want her to be here for that.

Maybe it's time she discovered cocktails.

Oh dear, sj. I will be sending calming vibes for sure.

Heh. That's what ice cream is for. Although she does love her Shirley Temples.

I loved a Shirley Temple when I was a kid. Probably still would, honestly.

Always support bacteria. They're the only culture some people have.

My sister once astounded a NYC bartender by downing seven (!) Shirley Temples.

Yikes, I would go into a sugar coma.

ah, she's made of stronger stuff (and, for what it's worth, they were fairly small if I remember correctly, but still ...)
