TMI Tuesday: May 17th, 2022

This was a great TMI Tuesday so I thought I’d repost the questions. the late phoenix, gemma and others are still playing TMI Tuesday today. It will be interesting to compare their answer from ten years ago. 
Original here.

The inverted poll.

Oh. You didn’t mean inverted pole dancing? 

In many polls, you are asked if you strongly agree, somewhat agree, neither agree nor disagree, somewhat disagree or strongly disagree with some proposition. Today, we go the other way. We supply the answer, you supply the question.

1. Tell us something with which you strongly agree, or greatly like.

Jayden: Voting is important. Everyone should vote.

Richard: Cheddar Goldfish crackers.

2. Tell us something with which you somewhat agree, or somewhat like.

Jayden: I somewhat like Spring. Allergies suck but longer days are nice.

Richard: Original Goldfish crackers

3. Tell us something to which you are indifferent, or have no opinion.

Jayden: Candy. I can take it or leave it.

Richard: Pretzel Goldfish crackers

4. Tell us something with which you somewhat dislike or disagree with.

Jayden: Heat. I don’t like being hot. I want to be cold. The only exception is being super turned on, but even then–turn on a fan. I can’t cum if it’s too hot.

Richard: FLAVOR BLASTED Goldfish crackers

5. Tell us something with which you strongly disagree, or greatly dislike.

Jayden: Bugs. I get the creepy crawlies. I can’t help it.

Richard: Store brand Whale crackers

Bonus: What is an opinion held by others that makes you angry?

Jayden: That anyone has the right to tell others what they can/can’t do with their own bodies. It makes me fucking furious.

Richard: Goldfish Crackers are bad.

TMI Tuesday: May 10th, 2022

Be creative, play TMI Tuesday.

1. Write a 100 word story using the phrase “Kinky love triangle.”

Once upon a time, there was a kinky love triangle. And this was actually a triangle. Usually, when we hear about “love triangles,” we’re actually talking about Vs. It doesn’t go alllll the way around the triangle. But this one, this one did. Jack wanted to be dominant over Nancy. Nancy wanted to be submissive to Paul. Paul wanted to be submissive to Jack, or maybe dominant. He was confused. And round and around they went. Every kink scene ended with hurt feelings, until finally the triangle broke. Oops, that’s the story of how Jayden got divorced and married Richard!

2. When was the last time you snapped a nude pic of yourself? Where was the pic taken (e.g. bedroom, bathroom, etc.)?

Jayden: I’m sure it was for Richard, or document the pretty bruises he leaves me. Those are usually in the bathroom the morning after.

Richard: I think the last one was in my living room for Jayden. Probably like a year ago.

3. Finish this sentence: I felt overwhelmed with the urge _____ .

Jayden: to snuggle.

Richard: to sleep for like two days.

4. Finish this sentence: Using sex as a road map _____ .

Jayden: to good relationships.

Richard: you need AAA.

5. Do you tend to follow your desires and take risks?

Jayden: I do now. I didn’t before. But I took a leap with Richard and it worked out for me.

Richard: I sent my professor porn. It went great.

(Jayden: He did, and he freaked out about it for two weeks.)

Bonus: If you dig a deep hole through the center of the Earth starting from New Zealand, in what country will you emerge?

Richard: Without looking, I’m going to say Canada.

Jayden: Richard is probably right, but if not, maybe Greenland?

We were both wrong.

TMI Tuesday: May 2nd, 2022

TMI Tuesday gets kinky. Come play!

You had a little break–a change of pace, now get back to TMI Tuesday!

1. If you could see two things change about your significant other what would they be?

Jayden: I’m not sure this is something I want to share publicly. Hmm. But I mean, he’s going to read it and he already knows it, so the first is that we’re still working the kinks out of communication issues (aren’t we all?) and sometimes I want him to see more good in the world.

Richard: I want her to make more time for her hobbies, and to have better feet.

2. What are two things you forgot to celebrate last year?

Jayden: I don’t know… I’m pretty good about celebrating things. I’m always down for a celebration!

Richard: Nothing? I try to avoid celebrating as much as possible.

3. Are you and your significant other both good at apologizing?

Jayden: I think so. I think Richard is better at it than I am. But we both make a concerted effort.

Richard: I think so.

4. What would you not admit on a first date?

Jayden: I don’t think I would admit to how much of a kinky slut I am. That’s a lot to dump on a new partner.

Richard: I dunno, I’m a terrible first date oversharer.

5. Is rebound sex empowering?

Jayden: I assume so? I don’t know that I’ve ever really had it. I imagine it would be, though.

Richard: (You totally had prebound sex, which is samish)

Not any more or less than any other sex.

Bonus: How do you mend a broken heart?

Jayden: Time, mostly. Sometimes it’s good to remember the reasons it was broken in the first place.

Richard: Find a project to focus on for a while.

TMI Tuesday: April 19th, 2022

TMI Tuesday gets kinky. Come play!

Bind ~ Blind ~ Tease

1. Select a kink. You’re a first-time visitor to a dungeon, and you are ‘center stage’ because a sizeable crowd has gathered to watch you:
a. Writhing from bare-hand spanking
b. Restrained on an X-cross receiving a whipping
c. Dangling in air wrapped in an ornate web of rope
d. Naked on a floor mat with 3 people pleasuring you

Jayden: e. Yes please? If I have to choose, I’d probably pick a. But b has its merits… But it would be up to Richard, ultimately…

Richard: D is tempting, but I think C is the most fun. Assuming I get to try to wriggle out of it. Good way to make a first impression.

2. If you selected #4 in the last question, tell us how you are pleasured?

Jayden: I didn’t select it, but I’m going to tell you anyway. Let’s see… three people pleasuring me… I would want one licking my pussy, one playing with my nipples, and one to make out with. Can I clone Richard, please?

Richard: 4 wasn’t a choice/letter. I think I’ll take one person licking my ass, one on my balls, cock, and one bossing them around and lending a hand as needed.

3. Bind, blind, tease. Write a 50-word story and include those 3 words.

Jayden: My desire is blinding. My skin feels like it is on fire. I wonder if it’s warm to the touch, or if it just feels that way. But I can’t check. The bindings on my limbs are too tight for me to move. My Richard is such a fucking tease.

Richard: I don’t know why they thought blind-folding (totally counts) me was going to stop me from getting out. That is the whole point of binding (also counts!) someone, right? To tease them until they get out and try to get revenge.

4. Sex Doll play: The ‘doll’ is the human version of an inflatable sex doll.
The ‘doll’ must lie completely still on a bed and let their partner have at it. The partner is free to control the doll’s body and movements, and do what they please. Which will you be–the doll or the doll-master? Why?

Jayden: The doll. Richard and I have done something similar once or twice. He likes to hear me scream too much to make me be silent often, but it can be sexy.

Richard: Yeah, I’ll be the doll-master. I had an ex who was really into this kink and it can be fun. I’m no good at staying quiet anyway.

TMI Tuesday: April 12th, 2022

Love and Money

1. Could you fall in love with and set up home with someone who has $100,000 (usd) in debt?

Jayden: Yeah. I essentially did in a previous relationship. But it’s okay. Richard is super debt-averse, which is fine by me!

Richard: Depends on their income, the type of debt, etc. 100K in student loans for someone pulling down six figures isn’t horrific. 100K in payday loans someone making 50K is a problem.

2. Is it important for you to be the breadwinner or make more money than your significant other?

Jayden: No. I don’t care. It all goes into one bucket.

Richard: I want to be a house husband/kept man and throw lavish parties.

3. Are you happy with your chosen career path? What could be better?

Jayden: Some days I love it. Other days, I lose 3 hours of sleep agonizing about it (and I’m on vacation this week!!!)

Richard: Not particularly. I don’t love my job, and I’m pretty sure it’ll be gone before I’m 50.

4. Would you start a business with your significant other? Why or why not?

Jayden: Sure. I’ve done it. I started one with my ex-husband. We still own it together. And…it’s fine. Sometimes he frustrates me, and I’m sure sometimes I frustrate him. But in the end, we’re both supportive of the business.

Richard: We’re totally going to get a movie deal, so I guess we’ll have to figure something out.

Bonus: Can money buy you love?

Jayden: I’m sure a sub could woo me by spoiling me financially, but I don’t think it’d ever be actual love. Money is great and all, but there are more important things. And boy did I prove that in the last ~2 years.

Richard: No. I’ve dated some girls who came from money, it doesn’t really help that much.

TMI Tuesday: March 29th, 2022

Upgrade your happiness– play TMI Tuesday, a simple pleasure in life.

1. Tell us your top two simple pleasures.

Jayden: Snuggles and warm, fuzzy blankets.

Richard: Sourdough and snuggles

2. You are being a offered a day of pleasure but you must choose one of the following to do. Which would you choose?
a. Sex
b. Watching big sports match/game
c. Fun times with good friends

Jayden: I really want a and c. In fact, that’s my plan for Sunday. Both things.

Richard: What if the big sport match is an orgy with my friends?

3. The sun shining through your window in the morning–annoyance or pleasure?

Jayden: It’s annoying because it shines right in my face when I’m trying to sleep.

Richard: Meh. Kinda neutral.

4. If you uttered the words “pleasure me” to your lover, what would you want to happen?

Jayden: I want him to decide something, haha. I don’t like making decisions. But generally, pleasing me involves touching me, and often orgasms.

Richard: I want to lay there until every inch of me has been rubbed and/or tongued.

5. Tell us one thing you were most grateful for last week?

Jayden: I am grateful for Richard every day. He makes my life so much fuller and happier.

Richard: We started getting random boxes of food left on our door step. It’s a fun surprise!

Bonus: What is the last thing you crossed of your bucket list?

Jayden: Sexually? Orgy. It was an accident…No, really. Oops!

Richard: I don’t have a bucket list.

Special bonus question–one of life’s mysteries: Are fig newtons cookies or bars? (thelatephoenix wants to know)

Jayden: Cookies? I don’t know. I don’t care for them.

Richard: It’s not a cookie, it’s a newton! bar

TMI Tuesday: March 22nd, 2022

This week TMI Tuesday wants to know– are you a cheat?

1. Have you ever cheated at a board game? Why?

Jayden: Not that I can recall. I’ve certainly screwed up rules before, but I’ve never intentionally cheated at a board game.

Richard: Not a board game, but I used to deal out the opening hands in card games without everyone in the room, then peak to find the best one and take it.

2. Which board game are you unbeatable?

Jayden: None. I love them, but I am not unbeatable, by any stretch.

Richard: I’m batting 1000 (1 for 1) at Forbidden Sky.

3. Which mythological creature would be your worst roommate?

Jayden: Mermaid. Our bathtub is way too small.

Richard: Sometimes I think Riley is a mythological creature.

4. Give us a three song playlist. You can link to the songs if you wish.

Jayden: Only You by Calum Scott, All In by Sheridan Reed, Drive by Ben Rector

Richard: Since camp is starting next week, time for the sprintin’, weebin’ NaNo playlist.
Best Megalovania, The Two Good You Say Runs, Bluper Saiyan Theme

5. What famous person have you met or been within a few feet of (music concerts and book signings do not count).

Jayden: Most have been music concerts… like second row at John Anderson’s solo tour. Amazing. But other than that, I met Martin Sheen once when I was a kid. I had no idea how famous he was at the time.

Richard: I worked a Bruce Campbell book signing like 5 years ago. He’s pretty much exactly how you’d expect him to be.

Bonus: Is a hot dog a sandwich?

Jayden: I once had an hours long debate about this with my step daughters. I didn’t care, but it was funny to watch them argue. I honestly have no opinion.

Richard: Yes. It’s meat inside of a roll. There’s no reasonable debate.

TMI Tuesday: March 15th, 2022

Writing made easy–play TMI Tuesday.

1. When you need to get serious, good writing done where do you go?

Jayden: Panera. I get my best writing done there.

Richard: For a walk! And then my desk.

2. Where do you look for inspiration to write?

Jayden: Often my own life, or at least my fantasies.

Richard: Outside on my walks.

3. If you could add anything to your office what would it be?

Jayden: Uh, doors? My office is the living room.

Richard: Existing.

4. Are you an app calendar/planner (ie., g-cal, outlook) kind of person or do you still prefer a physical planner?

Jayden: I hung onto my physical planner for a really long time, but now I’m all digital.

Richard: I have a wife.

5. When you jot down notes do you use pen and paper or put it into an electronic device (tablet, smart phone, etc)

Jayden: I always have my phone on me, so usually electronic. I even switched to electronic at work.

Richard: Pen and paper

Bonus: March 15 is National Shoe World day. a holiday that illuminates the need for quality footwear for millions of people around the world who go without. What quality pair of shoes would you pick to gift to someone? Post a link or pic.

Jayden: New Balance sneakers. They are the best. Richard and I both bought a pair. Him – because he’s worn them forever; me – because women’s shoes have never fit me well, so I tried men’s, and…oh my goodness, my toes aren’t cramped!

Richard: I had an amazing pair of Red Wing Oxfords years ago. More comfortable than most sneakers, and they held up as my daily drivers for like two years. I don’t think they make them anymore, but I check their website/stores once or twice a year.

Back again I see. Welcome. TMI Tuesday is posted!

Oops… we did it and I forgot to post it, so here it is, a bit late!

Some things to think (and write) about …

1. Under what circumstances would you fake your own kidnapping?

Jayden: Fake for whom? Richard can “kidnap” me anytime he wants…

Richard: I’ll do it right now, don’t tempt me!

2. Do you feel you belong?

Jayden: Nope.

Richard: No.

3. In your life, what is a fun thing you did that you will never do again?

Jayden: Write 1,000,000 words in a year (with Richard’s help).

Richard: Cramming modern components into a 30 year old server case.

4. Do you listen to your inner voice?

Jayden: Sometimes.

Richard: Yes. Aphantasia is terrifying.

5. What can you hear?

Jayden: From my inner voice? Self doubts. Lots of it.

Richard: Mostly narration.

Bonus: Do you know yourself?

Jayden: Most of the time it seems like I do. And then some things surprise me.

Richard: Probably not.

TMI Tuesday: March 1st, 2022

Life, it is what it is. And what is is TMI Tuesday!

1. Covid dating behavior:

– Are you choosier?
– Are you less choosey?
– Are you more frank and up front about what you want?

Jayden: Richard and I started dating during covid. It was weird. A lot of takeout and homecooked meals. Going out for a meal was a novelty.

Richard: I was *trying* to be good, until someone seduced me!

2. What is stable in your life? Answer Yes or No as in “yes, this is stable” or “no this is not stable”. Elaborate if you wish.

– Job
– Finances
– Romantic relationship
– Economy of your country
– Mental health
– Physical health

Jayden: I think all of them are as stable as they’ve ever been. I have a good job, my finances are pretty under control, my relationship is very happy, and my physical and mental health are good. The economy, well. Whatever. I won’t go there.

Richard: I would say romantic relationship and physical health are fairly stable. The rest, not so much.

3. Have you lived in a different country than the one you were born? Did you have to learn the language?

Jayden: Nope. I’ve barely lived away from a half hour radius.

Richard: No.

4. Can you speak any other languages?

Jayden: I’ve been working on Spanish, and I took years of German. But nothing fluent.

Richard: I think my Spanish is marginally better than Jayden’s.

5. How do you manage your fears?

Jayden: If it’s a legit fear, I talk it out. To everyone. My husband, my best friends, my therapist… If it’s just anxiety, I do the same, and sometimes take meds and/or play piano.

Richard: You just gotta go do the scary things.

Bonus: What would you pick to add to your coffee, Baileys, Amaretto, or Whisky/Whiskey?

Jayden: I don’t like coffee or any of those add ins. I’ll take tea with a splash of peach schnapps, please.

Richard: I usually do my coffee black. I enjoy a Scotch Hot Chocolate on occasion.

Happy TMI Tuesday!

TMI Tuesday: February 22nd, 2022

1. What did you last savor and when? 

Jayden: A donut, covered with crushed peanuts. Yum.

Richard: Hot fudge sundae. Mmmmm

2. Athletic mind blowing sex or slow sexy romantic sex, what do you want right now?

Jayden: Yes please? I guess slow and sexy romantic sex if I have to choose, but both please?

Richard: Jayden has never had slow, sexy, romantic sex in her life. So I’m going to pick that too, just to see if she can do it.

3. You are being interviewed and asked to comment on sex-work. What do you have to add to the discussion?

Jayden: Sex work is valid work. We should be protecting people who are providing this service, not criminalizing.

Richard: I feel like I need more context? Broadly, I think we should decriminalize and regulate sex work, the same as we do most other things.

4. Should sex-work be decriminalized?

Jayden: Absolutely.

Richard: Yes.

5. Fill in the blank. Don’t _____ .

Jayden: Don’t be a dick.

Richard: forget to drink your Ovaltine.

Bonus: Are you bored with people who are successful and unhappy? Why?

Jayden: I don’t know if “bored” is the right word. It sucks to be successful and unhappy, but at the same time, how do we define success? The old adage goes, “Money doesn’t buy happiness.” (Please note that there is absolutely a point where this is invalid. Excessive amounts of money don’t buy happiness but when most of your problems can be fixed with a moderate amount of money, then that’s a different story.)

Richard: I don’t think I have any particular opinions on successful/unhappy people as a catagory.


No those are not frozen ice-pops. Today TMI Tuesday posts on Monday, February 14, and it is Condom Awareness Day!

1. One of my ideas is to someday create _____ .

Jayden: … a happy home.

Richard: a race of atomic supermen. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n_JYSPZznSA

2. Do you travel lightly?

Jayden: In terms of packing… NOPE.

Richard: Yes. If it doesn’t fit in two carry on sized bags, you don’t need it.

3. How would you create the best dressed baked potato?

Jayden: Sour cream, cheddar cheese, bacon bits… yummm.

Richard: A bow tie.

4. The best thing you tasted over the weekend was _____ .

Jayden: Hm. It’s Friday (we’re SO late) so the weekend was long ago. Oh, but we went to this really fancy restaurant. They had some amazing foods, but I think the peanut butter cheesecake was the best.

Richard: Fancy scotch!

5. What do you wish you had payed attention to?

Jayden: High School History class. I really just didn’t pay attention beyond trying to get an A in the class. I wish I had learned more.

Richard: Bitcoin in like 2012.

TMI Tuesday: February 8th, 2022

Intimacy

1. How do you survive an intimacy famine?

Jayden: Apparently I find other sources of intimacy. When it was lacking in the before times, I found others who could provide it for me. I didn’t even realize it was a deficit. I just…filled in the gaps.

Richard: Snuggle the cat. And roleplaying with people online.

2. The loss of which one of these would most affect your mental health or outlook on life?
a. Loss of physical intimacy
b. Loss of emotional intimacy

Jayden: Both would be awful. I don’t know how I could exist without them. I guess probably physical since at least I have a therapist.

Richard: I’m going to go with B, only because I think it implies the loss of A as well.

3. Gives us a tip on how to get more intimacy in our day-to-day lives.

Jayden: Live with someone who you can be intimate with? I have nothing more there. Sorry.

Richard: Set a snuggle alarm.

4. Do you think modern technology helps or hinders intimacy?

Jayden: It helps emotional intimacy but hurts physical intimacy. Richard and I got very emotionally intimate thanks to the internet.

Richard: I think it mostly helps (easier to find and get in touch with people) but it can be distracting.

5. Would you utilize the services of a professional cuddler?

Jayden: If Richard weren’t available, sure. But Richard is an excellent cuddler. In fact, I’m going to go cuddle him right now…

Richard: My ex was a professional cuddler, and I cuddled her plenty of times. So, I guess that’s a yes.

2. Tell us about 10 things that scare you.

Jayden: 10? That’s a lot of things. Bugs. Spiders. Falling (sort of. Not really afraid, but I don’t like the feeling). Not being good enough. That’s gotta count for at least 10.

Richard: Ughhh, 10? Ants, 10 ants. I’m more scared of ants than I am of the next 9 things, I’m pretty sure.

3. If you were a rap artist what would your stage name be?

Jayden: I don’t have a clue… I used the generator provided below, and it came up with Inspectah Loving. I’m going with it.

Jayden: I have a blanket and some stuffed animals that I keep around.

TMI Tuesday: January 25th, 2022

Writing prompts, come get your writing prompts and have fun with TMI Tuesday blog.

1. I struggle with _____ .

Jayden: Insecurity. I can’t seem to shake it, but Richard does a good job reassuring me.

Jayden: Swiss Army Knives.

Richard: She’s right!

3. Do you eat food samples in grocery stores (consider pre-covid times)?

Jayden: Hell yeah! It was like appetizers on a Friday night!

4. What don’t you have figured out?

Jayden: Everything.

Richard: The dishwasher.

5. What would you wear for camouflage if you were hiding on a gingerbread house?

Jayden: Candy buttons, I guess?

TMI Tuesday: January 18th, 2022

Bondage and Dwarfs

So, oops. Usually I (Jayden) set up TMI Tuesday and send it to Richard to finish. This time he set it up, and…I forgot to go finish! Oh well. So we’re a week late…

1. What is one thing a your significant other could do to you to rock your world?

Jayden: I dunno, he rocks my world pretty regularly. A nice CNC scene would be fun.

Richard: I’ve been in a cuckold mood lately, so if she wants to find us a cuckcake that’d be pretty cool.

2. You have been granted the super power you always wanted. How will you abuse that power? Why

Richard: To repeat myself from Bloganuary tonight: David Xanatos some bitcoin.

gargoyles gifs | WiffleGif


3. For sexy play, would you rather be tied up or tie someone else up? Why?

Jayden: Be tied up.

Richard: I like both. At the moment, I think I’m in more of a being tied up mood.

4. What is your best physical and non physical asset?

Jayden: Physical, my boobs. Non-physical, my positivity.

Richard: Physical, probably my dick. Non-physical, my sense of humor.

5. Referring to Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, if they were naming new dwarfs beyond the seven what would your name be and why?

Jayden: Uhh, I’d probably be happy, so…

Richard: You obviously want me to say horny, anonymous internet blog person.

TMI Tuesday: January 11th, 2022

TMI Tuesday is posted, asking you to write about your first. . .

1. First app you check in the morning?

Jayden: Whatever notification is on top, usually. Unless I see something important. Often it’s Google Chat where I talk to my best friends. ❤

Richard: Usually Discord, so Jayden can ask permission to go the bathroom.

2. First kiss location?

Jayden: Uhh, my house, I suppose. I was pretty young. Too young.

Richard: Like, first first kiss? Probably the playground in elementary school. First “serious” kiss, the banquet hall we had junior prom at.

3. First major purchase over $1000?

Jayden: I guess my first house? I don’t think any of my laptops have ever been over $1000 and I didn’t buy any appliances when I lived in the rental. Oh, my first car? But my parents bought it and I paid them over a few years, so I don’t know that that even counts.

Richard: A bed. We still have it as a guest bed. Good bed. Anne Hathaway worthy.

4. First song choice in karaoke song book?

Jayden: I usually pick My Baby Loves Me by Martina McBride.

Richard: Something fun that everyone can sing along to like Sweet Caroline or Build Me Up Buttercup.

5. First internet screen name?

Jayden: I’m not telling because I still have it on my emails and such for my real accounts, not my author name accounts.

Richard: I think it was Psycho something, and I’m pretty sure I spelled Psycho wrong, because I was like 12.

6. First break up reason?

Jayden: Distance? I guess. I mean, it was half an hour away, but when you’re young and can’t drive, that doesn’t work well.

Richard: Probably also distance. It’s hard to be in a relationship when you work and live at a summer camp, and you only get about 24 hours a week off.

7. First concert and how old were you?

Jayden: I was 10. Joan Armatrading. My mom didn’t want to go, so my dad took me instead.

Richard: I saw TSO for Christmas in my early 30s? I don’t know, I always say none of the ones I’ve been to count.

8. First crush?

Jayden: I remember him well. If I’d had a son, I would’ve named him for that guy. But he passed away when I was in college. It was really sad.

Richard: I dunno. I had a couple crushes in elementary school, but I couldn’t tell you their names.

Bonus: What was the title of your very first blog post?

Jayden: First Post! All the way back on March 5, 2015.

Richard: I don’t think it had one? It was on Xanga though.

TMI Tuesday: January 4th, 2022

Wishing you all a wonderful 2022. Now for the first TMI Tuesday of the year 2022.

1. Do you feel that happiness is luck or is it a practiced mindset?

Jayden: A practiced mindset, at least for me. I know people who have terrible luck that saps away their happiness.

Richard: Luck. You’re either born into circumstances that allow you to be happy or you’re not.

2. If you could transport to the happiest place in the world where would you be?

Jayden & Richard: Finland. According to the United Nations Sustainable Development Solutions Network, “Finland has been the world’s happiest country for four years running.” Source.

3. In 2022, what will you do to improve your health?

Jayden: Walk more. Move more. Eat less. Eat better. A little vague maybe, but that’s all I can commit to right now.

Richard: Walk more. I used to walk all the time, but I haven’t made time for it lately.

4. What is your money psychology?
a. Money worshipper: Those who associate money with security, but in a kind of arbitrary way. The danger is no amount of money is ever enough.

b. Money avoidance: When you tend to think of money as bad, corrupting or just something you do not deserve. This can manifest in many ways, such as, not trying to negotiate a raise at work or avoiding looking at your retirement account.

c. Money vigilance: These people seem really great with their money, but there is a lot of anxiety around actually using it. This type can be great savers but rarely treat themselves.

d. Money status: People with this mind-set see money as a way to feel good about themselves and appear a certain way to others. These folks tend to run up credit card debt, pick up tabs they cannot afford and otherwise mismanage their money — while judging others who do not have the same status symbols.

Jayden: b. Money avoidance. I don’t feel like any of them really fit me, but I guess that’s the closest one. I definitely had a lot of anxiety last time I had to negotiate salary.

Richard: a. Money worshipper. It’s a factual statement, and I don’t understand how anyone can be anything else.

Bonus: Do you have any goals for your blog in 2022?

Jayden: Just to be more consistent. With bringing on Richard at the beginning of 2021, I was a lot better, even posting many days in a row for a while, but then life got busy and we fell off the wagon. It’s fine, though, we still kept up with most things, and hopefully 2022 will be a little more settled, so I can post more consistently.

Richard: Actually publish it so people can read it.

TMI Tuesday: December 21st, 2021

Often it is the small things in life that bring us joy and clarity. Welcome or welcome back to TMI Tuesday.

1. Do you have a favorite author? Who?

Jayden: Mary Higgins Clark. She was the first mystery author I read. I have loved her since I was a kid.

Richard: I would like to preface my answer by saying that Jayden’s is the most un-Jayden answer possible. I have never seen her read a mystery in my life. I was really expecting Laurel K. Hamilton or something.

I’m going to go with Phillip K. Dick. For today anyway, It’ll be someone else tomorrow I’m sure. I think he hits the sweet spot between “thinky” lit-fic and “pulpy” pop sci-fi.

2. Do you make your bed each morning? Why?

Jayden: Yeah, mostly, just because otherwise the cat will get into the bed and I’m allergic.

Richard: I sort of make the bed every morning, because Jayden goes to work earlier than me. When she gets up, I pull her pillow and tiny snuggle blanket under the covers to cuddle in her absence, and then I make sure the comforter is pulled over all her stuff when I get up. I don’t tuck the corners or anything though.

3. What is one recipe that gets you through busy, hectic times?

Jayden: Recipe? Uhhh. If I’m really slammed, I’m a hot pocket kind of girl.

Richard: I don’t know if it counts as a “recipe”, but when I’m short on time I often make a pseudo-ploughman’s lunch. Butter up a big hunk of sourdough, grab an apple or whatever fruit is around, slice up some cheese (or grab the pre sliced) and pour a tall glass of milk. Takes less than 5 minutes to put together, very filling, and a total comfort food.

4. For therapeutic venting, who do you call–friend, sibling, parent, significant other?

Jayden: I call Richard. But I also have a therapist and several friends. Sometimes I vent more than once.

Richard: Most of my venting is work related, so I have one or two work friends that are probably my most common. Non-work (grad school being stupid) related, definitely Jayden.

5. When did you last de-clutter the camera roll/pics on your smartphone?

Jayden: Ummm. I guess when I got my new phone in February/March?

Richard: I probably do it a couple times a year if I’m waiting in line or something, really bored, and can’t find an article to read. I also take like 2.3 pics a month on average.

Bonus: What is the subject of your next blog post?

Jayden: It’s a good thing we did this one late! The next post is going to be a year-end wrap up about our 524 sexes, a million words, and a special surprise!

Richard: For my non-Jayden blog, I think my next post is about can openers.

TMI Tuesday: December 28th, 2021

So long 2021. The final TMI Tuesday for this year is posted. Except for the one from last week that we’re going to do later.

1. My favorite thing about 2021 was _____ .

Jayden: Eloping! It was so fun. Being able to just be us, no one else. It was wonderful.

Richard: Everything we did after eloping! The dinner, the sex, the walk. I assume Jayden is counting that in her answer, but I want to be slightly different.

2. What is something that happened to you in 2021 that you never want to forget?

Jayden: I could say eloping again. But I’m going to say finding my strength. I am a very different person now than I was a year ago, and I appreciate the struggles I went through and the self reflection (and therapy) that helped me get here.

Richard: I’m just going to say eloping.

3. What would you like to do differently next year?

Jayden: I would like to stay married to my husband!

Richard: Next time, we get married in front of a bunch of people!

4. How do you honor the past while staying focused on the future?

Jayden: There are so many good things from my past, and I am grateful for all of them. But they don’t dictate my future. I like to look ahead and plan and keep my eye on the future, while always remembering the past. We tell stories about good (and sometimes bad) things that have happened, and of course, I take lots of pictures.

Richard: I read this one like five times, and I still don’t know what to say for it. I put chocolate ice cream on my apple pie, which is very untraditional, because my grandfather did it.

5. Next year I am excited to _____ .

Jayden: Publish! This whole writing 1,000,000 words in 2021 was insane. I don’t know what I was thinking, and we’re still short on words with only a few days to go. In 2022, I want to focus on publishing. I’ve generated so many words and written so many novels, but I haven’t published in a long time, so I want to try to do more of that in 2022.

Richard: Have our big wedding party!

Bonus: Do you feel jaded at all?

Jayden: No, I don’t think so. I’m the sunshine!

Richard: I’ve been jaded since I was like 10.

TMI Tuesday: December 13th, 2021

Come on and play TMI Tuesday; it’s posted!

1. If you found a fountain of youth, would you swim in it?

Jayden: Sure. It would be great to be young forever!

Richard: I would like to keep my knees at least semi-functional for as long as possible, so yes.

2. Share a quick story about your misspent youth.

Jayden: One time, I was hanging out with my friend and his friend who I barely knew. I ended up giving him a blow job behind a drug store. It was pretty hot, in retrospect, but pretty dumb. I did a lot of things I shouldn’t have as a teen. Lucky for me, nothing bad came out of it.

Richard: Once upon a time I did absolutely nothing productive for 18 years, because I wasn’t allowed. The end.

3. Some people say that youth is a state of mind, do you agree?

Jayden: Somewhat. There’s only so much your mind can do over your body in the long run.

Richard: I dunno, I was born a crochety old man.

4. Do you feel that you wasted your youth?

Jayden: Not particularly. I did a lot of things. I learned a lot of things. I am a much, much happier adult because of it.

Richard: I think youth in general is a waste, and people should endeavor to get past it as quickly as possible.

5. Are you anxious about death?

Jayden: Sometimes. I have a young daughter I wouldn’t want to leave behind. And I have so many friends who would miss me. And I’m not done living life. There are so many more things I want to do.

Richard: Not particularly.

Bonus:  When do you dislike too much chatter?

Jayden: In the shower, probably. Early in the morning, I have time to reflect and think and wake up. I’m not very chatty then, although there’s no one to talk to me early in the morning, so that’s fine. 🙂

Richard: Pretty much all the time. I’m a pretty quiet person, and I don’t really get the need to fill silence just for the sake of it that some people have.
