Lazy Time Reblog Sunday: Awesomely Luvvie

I am tired. I am damn tired. I am soooo damn tired! You just don't know. Even though I told y'all at least three times. And I'm not just repeating myself to up my word count. Especially since I'm so far behind on my fifty-K submission, the NaNoWriMo stat site suggests that if I keep up this pace, I might be done with my fifty thousand words sometime in late January. I'm hoping to rectify this situation tomorrow night at the NaNo writer's Eastbank meet-up, but I'm not holding my breath. Still, I got a couple of good stories and two blog posts out of the deal (this one included) so it's all good.

The reason I've been so lacking in vim and vigor lately is because I've foolishly agreed to work extra hours at the spa. This has got to be the worst possible time to do such a thing, but if my husband is willing to kill himself working two jobs, I can't very well refuse this form of suicide either, can I? I'm totally not typing that bitterly, by the way. As it is, I only have one day off this week, and I will be spending it chauffeuring my mother around the Westbank. The woman gave birth to me and put up with my shit for over eighteen years. I can give up one day out of my pathetic life to help her out.

I'm bringing her to this hellhole. Willingly. I think I've earned favorite child status, don't you?

I had been planning to forgo my usual Lazy Time post in exchange for a post about my experience at the awesome restaurant, Messina's at the Terminal. My husband and I went there for breakfast a few days ago, and I have to say, I was impressed with both the food and the ambiance. Not many things move me in life, but I guess food and architecture do.

I dare you not to be inspired by those majestic friezes. I fucking dare you.

Unfortunately, as previously mentioned, I am damn tired so damn tired, so I'll save that post for a later date. And now that I've read over this entire entry, I just realized I've typed just about as much as I would have had I kept to my original post. Huh. Oh well.

So in lieu of my Messina's post which was in lieu of my usual Lazy Time Reblog post, here's a Lazy Time Reblog post dedicated to Awesomely Luvvie, self proclaimed Wacky Wordsmith and Pop Culture PrimaDonna. After reading a good number of her posts, I have to proclaim it too. Her #50ShadesofShade live-tweet inspired me to do Doomtown Theater, but most importantly, the woman saved me from having to read Fifty Shades of Gray. God knows, I owe her a kidney for that alone. So, in honor of Luvvie, here's her #50ShadesofShade live-tweet reading of Fifty Shades. God have mercy on us all.

Don't forget to follow Luvvie on her blog, Awesomely Luvvie, as well as her twitter page and Facebook. And click those ads people. Show some love, and I'll send out some happy thoughts.

Five Things You Didn't Know Could Happen During a Massage

Everyone likes a good massage. Well, almost everyone. There are some that cringe at the very idea of being naked in a room while a total stranger rubs them down. These people are either crazy or have never had a massage before and don't know what they're missing. There are also the ones that like massage a little too much and should feel free to do to themselves what they erroneously believe they are paying me to do to them. Also, read item number 3 of this blog article I wrote in November of 2012 and follow the instructions therein.

But for those of you who are just looking for a nice, perfectly innocent, legal, and in no way rage inducing way to relax, massage is the way to go. That said, there are a few things you should be prepared for before getting that first massage. Things such as...


I once had a client come in for a deep tissue massage who must have eaten a very big, extremely gassy meal right before climbing onto my tab…

Top 5 Things That Drive Your Massage Therapist Crazy

I recently read an article titled 8 Things Your Masseuse Doesn't Want You to Know. After reading it thoroughly, I've come to the conclusion that the LMT's (licensed massage therapists, for those of you not in the know) interviewed either haven’t been in the business for very long, or really hate their jobs. For example, one of the items mentioned that most massage therapists get scared when their clients snore. I don't buy that. I think if a client is relaxed enough to fall asleep on my table, I'm doing a damn fine job. Isn't snoring like applause for massage therapists? It is to me.
It got me to thinking of my own personal pet peeves though, so I tried googling Things Your LMT Hates or Things That Drive Your Masseuse to Drinking, but these searches provided no useful data, and quite frankly I’d like to know what insane, perverted monkey Google put in charge of their search engine for me to come up with this list:

Since Google failed me miserably, I thought I wou…

Facebook PM Mating Call 2: Take the Hint Perv

If the internet has taught me anything over the years, it's this: No matter how unattractive you think you are, no matter how homely you might be, there will always be that one pervert who will whack off to your profile picture and beg you for cyber sex in a Facebook private message chat. And chances are, this pervert will misspell everything he types and mangle the English language beyond recognition. I consider myself an understanding, open minded person. People get lonely. I get that. If you never ask, you'll never know. But when someone tells you they're married and not interested in your need to "take out sperm", you should take what they say at face value and try to hit up someone else. Especially when they tell you they have a history of blogging morons who won't take no for an answer. Case in point:
