They're right, it's not just a pink ribbon

Was introduced to this project the other day while reading a blog of a lovely blogger.  It's a project for raising awareness of breast cancer. I fell in love instantly, the bravery and heart of these young survivors. It makes me realize this is just a small bump in the road for Mom. She's as brave as these women and young women.  She's as strong, stronger than anyone I've ever known.

Take a few minutes and check out his site. Keep in mind, it's a beautiful masterpiece but my also be inappropriate for all viewers.

Product Review: No strings attached

My first  product review, at least I think it's my first review. I'm not even sure as to why I'm going to spend the time reviewing said product for you...  Before we go any further this is a women's product. For those squeamish men, you should probably direct your attention elsewhere, NOW!

So some months ago I decided I would inquire with my lady friends on this new thing I'd never heard of before. Now keep in mind I'm typically the last one to know about shit. lol. One day it's just in my face and I'm like Oh look at this new shit. That's awesome!! So I remember to google this product, called soft cup. I'd received a coupon in the mail or at the grocery store one day and was like, what the frak is this "soft cup" about? I'd no idea. Lost and forgotten I finally remembered to ask my friends. A few of them who'd heard of it or a similar product praised the HELL OUT OF IT!  I mean they love it and a few of them were more in love with the idea that it's "better for the environment" . So let's do this thing, shall we?!

It's "A unique, prove advancement in period protection"   <- I agree with this, because it's definitely an advancement for those who are patient. I will admit the first few times I tried it. Hell my first month of using it. I was ready to "toss the piece of shit out the window" <- My exact words. It frustrated me to no end. I hated insertion and removal. It was disgusting to "mess" up everything including myself.  Gawd it was awful. It took me multiple attempts to get it inserted properly. Don't misunderstand ladies, it really takes dedication to get the hang of this thing. Or at least it did for me.

And now that I've been  at it for a bit, it's not quite  as annoying to say the least.  I'm getting the  hang of  it if you will.  It's a strange little device but really has a lot of perks to it.

  • It's safe for 12 hours, unlike the tampons
  • OK for swimming and sports
  • "Softcup loves making love..."  That's right ladies, they've designed this shit so we can have clean sex while Aunt Flo is in town.  All these years and they finally get that shit right? 
  • It's "comfortable". You really can't feel it when it's inserted. 
  • "Softcups have no wings, no strings . . . just freedom! " <-I pretty much love that catch phrase also.

I will say it's not as bad or scary as it seems. I know at first I was like, ehh... I'm soooo familiar with my tampons. I've been doing it for what seems like a lifetime. I know what to expect.  Of course you're going to have some leakage when you do it wrong, it's going to suck making a mess while removing and inserting, but when you realize you haven't had to hit the bathroom and go through the change for a whole 12 hours. Yea. I love it.  

There ya have it, my first product review. How'd I do?  Check out softcup

When will you return?

I heard your voice today
only in my head.
My messages made it your way
It was good to know you're still there
You're still thinking of me
You still remember me too.
I miss you still,
for as long as you're gone.
I'll miss you until I see you again
Till I hear your voice,
till I hear your laugh
Thinking of you always
Miss you until next time.

Why have you gone?


I miss you, miss you so much.
I hate that you're gone.
No where in my sight.
I see you in my mind, smiling that smile.
I miss you in my head.
I miss you now that you're gone.
I hope to see you again.
I miss our talks
I miss YOU.
I want to sit with you,
I want to sit on the porch,
talking about girls,
smoking cigarettes.
Talking all the talking we can talk.
I miss you.
