Adult Gaming

Sam and I just lis­tened to “Female Char­ac­ters,” episode 42 of the Game Mas­ter Show. The top­ic came up because Erin, one of the hosts, real­ized that she was will­ing to put female char­ac­ters through some expe­ri­ences that she would­n’t apply to males. There was a fair amount of talk about the Hero­ine’s Jour­ney and […]

TotD: Written On the Body

I’d nev­er heard of Writ­ten on the Body by Jeanette Win­ter­son (or of the author, at all) until I was brows­ing through some of the quo­ta­tions at Gaia a while back. This bit is too long for my quo­ta­tions file, but I love it too much to just delete it. “You’ll get over it…” It’s […]

Hump Day For You, Date Night For Us

It’s amaz­ing how much a mid-week date can cheer you up! I do rec­om­mend reg­u­lar­ly sched­uled dates to any­one who has a sig­nif­i­cant oth­er or oth­ers. Espe­cial­ly if you have kids! The girl went out, as usu­al. She sur­prised us by com­ing home ear­ly. Not a prob­lem, just unex­pect­ed. She’s got­ten into the habit of knocking […]

Friday Links

It was a nice, bor­ing day, which means I don’t have much to talk about. Hap­pi­ly, oth­er peo­ple do. Open Rela­tion­ships: What the World Already Has is a very good post over at Huff­in­g­ton by Jen­ny Block. I hope to read more from her. I def­i­nite­ly intend to get a copy of her book, Open: Love, […]

Date Night Happiness

My sweet­ie had to run a bunch of errands before he got home last night, which short­ened our date a bit. Gro­ceries were need­ful, though. We had some deli­cious deli-style sand­wich­es after he got home, so there was­n’t a kitchen mess to deal with, too. I think we watched an episode of West Wing while eating. […]

Multiple Partners Survey

Would any of you who are involved with mul­ti­ple part­ners, or who have been so involved, whether or not you iden­ti­fy as polyamorous, be will­ing to take a research sur­vey? You don’t have to give any indi­vid­ual iden­ti­fy­ing infor­ma­tion at all, if you don’t want to. Mul­ti­ple Part­ners Sur­vey From the site: Thank you for your interest […]

Happy V‑Day!

Hap­py Valen­tine’s Day to all, whether you’re part of a cou­ple (tri­ad, quad, etc.) or not :-) Sam­bear brought home truf­fles and flow­ers! And iTunesi­ness! And then he went and cooked deli­cious steaks for din­ner! My baby girl’s sweet­ie has mono. Ewww. They had to put off their spe­cial din­ner tonight ’til after he’s feel­ing bet­ter. Hopefully, […]

Poetry: Michael Blumenthal

For my Sam A Mar­riage You are hold­ing up a ceil­ing with both arms. It is very heavy, but you must hold it up, or else it will fall down on you. Your arms are tired, ter­ri­bly tired, and, as the day goes on, it feels as if either your arms or the ceil­ing will soon col­lapse. But then, unex­pect­ed­ly, something […]
