Nota Bene: I'm a petite plus-size Asian chick with short hair. At this point I must acknowledge radical acceptance that the vast majority of straight guys simply aren't into my 'type'. Maybe some day I will be able to shed my extra weight, but not right now. Hoping to find a monogamish (as defined by Dan Savage) primary relationship, with possible room for play with others. No kids, and don't want any.
"I came upon a cache of old photos
And invitations to teenage parties
'Dress in white' one said with quotations
From someone's wife - a famous writer
In the 1920s
When you're young, you find inspiration
In anyone who's ever gone
And opened up a closing door
She said: 'We were never feeling bored'..."

Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot. Like a towel, and a book of Vogon poetry...
Update: I've been told that the Fifty Shades of Grey book is very poorly written, and fails to cover some really important shit like scene negotiation, limits, safe words, emergencies, and aftercare. A bit not good. I had been looking forward to the movie, as I became quite the Jamie Dornan fan after seeing him as the creepily sexy yet terrifying serial killer in The Fall (also starring Gillian Anderson as the police detective hot on his trail)... but the trailers for 50 Shades make it look like some sort of boring clichéd romantic comedy! I also heard from a Fetlifer that the film isn't even all that exciting or erotic, and that there are plenty of vanilla films out there that are more erotic than this. Distinctly inauspicious, I must say.
Awwww shite - apparently the estate of Charles Addams brought a lawsuit against the actress/creator of the show, so the episodes have been pulled off YouTube, for the time being. :P Dammit, should've downloaded them when I still had the chance!
⛔ Important: Please understand that, whilst I'm totally cool with run-of-the-mill swear words, I am extremely uncomfortable with people using derogatory slang. For example: "That is so
This has nothing to do with so-called 'political correctness' - it
is about being a compassionate human being and doing right by others. We should all be actively working against the societal oppression of women/girls, minority communities, gender/sexually diverse people, and people with disabilities => towards universal equality! 💗
NOTE: Just because I support the rights and safety of the citizens of Palestine, doesn't mean I support terrorism (quite the opposite!). Just because I am very critical of Israeli govt/military policy, doesn't mean I am against the welfare of the citizens of Israel.
