Lunchtime Poll: Feeling Restless

Happy Tuesday, Persephoneers! I’ve been working my way through this (incredibly tasty) omelet month lately, and the main reason I embarked upon it was because I was bored with the food I’d been making lately. Which got me thinking.

The Great Orgasm Challenge: Surprising Tidbits

Welcome back to our journey toward 52 (or Insert Your Goal Number Here) Orgasms for the year 2012!

Lunchtime Poll: Supporting Friends

Within the close circle of people I love, there have been dozens (literally) of pretty life-altering, somewhat tragic circumstances happening lately. Deaths in the family, serious illnesses, financial catastrophes, long-term relationships breaking up, heartbreak left and right. The gods are cruel.

Anyway, I believe strongly in feeding grief. It’s how I was raised, and it’s how I know what to do when things go badly.

Which brings us to today’s Lunchtime Poll.
