Once I saw a blimp!

@FoxyRoxy Agreed. In one way, I hated the book (I only read the first). But, I also COULD NOT stop talking about it. It's like I NEED to talk about how poorly written it was and how ludicrous the characters were and how oddly "kinky" sex is represented. (I'm like, spanking is not all that uncommon, girl! Don't act like this is some big reveal that you want to get your bottom smacked!)

@The Lady of Shalott Oh and the "Teeth" thing is mainly that our winsome heroine chews her lip a lot when she's thinking hard (which is almost constantly; not the brightest Crayola in the box if you ask me) and Grey just wants to spank her SO hard when she does it. It's pretty constant for the first half of the book "Stop biting your lip, you know what it does to me!"

@The Lady of Shalott Fear not! for I have read yonder smut-novel! I wouldn't say Darfur comes up a LOT, just as an example of some vague (starvation-aid?) charity work that our extraordinarily wealthy, yet darkly mysterious male sexer-upper does. Because, y'know, how can he be such a caring individual, but still harbor such sexy and cruel desires towards our innocent Anastasia?!
I would say that it mentions Darfur more often than in your typical smut (approx count: ~0)
Julie! I am here for you, girl! I'm not going to start this with "I don't care BUT..." because - I personally think it's so gross. And it would be a dealbreaker for me if this issue was raised and my SO refused to compromise on this issue. To me, it would speak to his unwillingness to compromise in the future. I can't stand the argument that "everyone else does it, they just won't admit it." This is a privately-owned shower, what the general public does in their own showers is their own grody business.
BUT - if I take this stance - does MY fiance pee in the shower we share? I don't know! La-la-la I'm-not-listening la-la-la if this if your opinion, there are some questions you need to know not to ask. What about in my friends showers or in hotels?! LA LA LALALALAA LA I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW THE TRUTH.
@JessicaLovejoy YESSSSS. I went through a brief "Return to Innocence" renaissance about a year ago (first I asked my boyfriend what was that song with the drunk guy. He got it on the first guess).
Life insurance. 1 million x life insurance. Or possibly lawyers who specialize in wills.
I could not believe the weird businesses that got booths at the wedding expo I went to. Mortgages, life insurance, lawyers...
@The Lady of Shalott EEP! My boyfriend is descended from the Brewsters! I'm going to have to make him read these.
@arrakis Sorry, arrakis, you may be showing your age. You have to defend/refute a common idiom in an essay question. I had "Two heads are better than one." I recall writing an essay about how a two-headed Abraham Lincoln could have debated himself as opposed to needing Douglas around.
@AnthroK8 There are many people on Etsy who make tiny food! I have warned my boyfriend that one day I will be one of them, but I need to make it fast, because once my hands get all shaky I won't be able to compete.
@QuiteAimable: shh, don't tell anyone. I don't like red wine OR sangria. And while I like white wine, it makes me sulky, so I tend to avoid.
