Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

TMI Tuesday!

It's TMI Tuesday! Click the "I kiss and tell" icon to come play with us!!

1. What was your favorite book as a kid?

Mrs. Frisby and the Rats of NIHM
(preteen years)

Watership Down
(teen years)

I was also huge into Greek and Roman mythology from an early age. I was kind of a precocious reader.

2. If you were stranded on that proverbial desert island (again!), what book or books (up to 5) would you want to have with you?

Watership Down by Richard Adams
The Bible (various authors)
John Adams by David McCullough
His Dark Materials box set by Phillip Pullman
Elizabeth: The Struggle for the Throne by David Starkey

3. What was the first "naughty" book you read and in what way was it naughty?

The Happy Hooker, by Xaviera Hollander. I stumbled across this title in my parents' basement bookcase when I was 13. Wow - I learned a lot about things I hadn't even imagined. Techniques, BDSM, fetishes, -- it was quite an education! The only part that I found the slightest bit disturbing was when she got it on with her sister's German Shepherd. That's just weird.

4. If you were to publish your autobiography today, what would be the title?

How It All Went So Wrong

5. Would you rather look at nude pictures/pornography or read erotic fiction and why?

Erotic fiction (or non-fiction!), hands down. I like pictures, but I consume words. Words take me to a place pictures could never go.

Bonus (as in optional):Do you know the whereabouts today of the first person with whom you had sex?

No clue. Last I heard he had married the girl who was his girlfriend at the time we hooked up, but that's all. I suspect he's still in the town where we grew up, living a life of quiet desperation.
Edit: I Googled him. He's in a town about 20 miles north of where we grew up.
No school for Boy yesterday because of MLKj Day. No work for Spousehole for the same reason. Now there's no school AGAIN today, because of snow and bad roads. As a bonus for me, Spousehole took my car because his wouldn't start. It's going to be a wonderful day, I can just tell.

Nice answers. As for the guy in florida, I used to live there for 14yrs. We went to high school together.

Ron Burgundy said...

First off, great questions. It was very hard to just pick 5 books and like you - had to have the Bible.

Hope all is well for you-


The Troll said...

Happy TMIT. Excellent questions. Thanks.

Happy TMI Tuesday...and hooking ;) I too found that book very interesting and it isn't something that should fall into the hands of a high hormone teenager.

BTW, she is now happily married.

Em said...

Happy Hooker. . .sounds interesting.

ATLLG said...

Happy TMI!

Enyo said...

LOL I bought "Happy Hooker" from a used bookstore sometime in High School and snuck it to school where we replaced the cover with something from a romance novel and passed it around my friends. Soooo funny....that brings back tons of memories.

Anywho....hope your day gets better...the snow will be over soon....think spring thoughts.

Enyo said...

Nice reading material.

Good questions too!


David said...

When I was 12, I found my sister's copy of The Happy Hooker one afternoon and spent the rest of the day reading it secretly in my room.

Deanna said...

I totally forgot my mythology books! I still have many of them (or went and got them for the kids, who just don't seem to care about them the same way, so I reclaimed them lol)

I hear you are to thank for the questons - so, Thank You!

redneck vamp said...

I forgot to mention Mrs Frisby and the Rats of NIHM on list but was another fave of mine as well. I did list Watership Down though, always loved that one. I also love mythology and lore of varying types.

The Happy Hooker was also the first naughty book I came across. No pun intended lol.

I am with you on your 5 as well.

Fantastic answers and great questions also!

Happy Tuesday!

SlipOfAGirl said...

I've never read the Rats of NIHM or Watership Down (tho I do own the latter) -- now, just how do I go about getting stranded so I can have time to read it? ;)

Kittie Kate said...

Nice answers.
And nice questions.

I want to read that Happy Hooker book.

MsBehavn said...

I also remember reading The Happy Hooker but Lady Chatterly's Lover is the one that stands out most for me.

Great questions and answers this week.

Hope your day improved!

The Bizza said...

Holy crap! I just realized that you wrote those questions!

I wasn't feeling question number 2. That one has been done to death in many different genres. But the others were great questions.

Nicely done!

Amorous Chick said...

I love mythology and folklore and have from a young age as well. I just flat love tons of books, lol. Picking only 5 books was not an easy task lady! Just letting you know. ;) I enjoyed all of your answers! Happy TMI darlin! =o)

bittersweet me said...

It gets better ... I tagged you

Watership Down scared the bejesus out of me .. still does.
