What Is TMI Tuesday?

TMI Tuesday is a series of questions generated by TMI Tuesday Blog. It is a great way to meet other bloggers and to share some personal thoughts and experiences.

How To Play TMI Tuesday

TMI Tuesday is a series of questions generated by TMI Tuesday Blog. It is a great way to meet other bloggers and to share some personal thoughts and experiences. It is important to remember that there are no right or wrong answers to these questions, only the answers of the author –  and that’s part of what makes this tag so awesome!

Send Me Your Questions!

Do you have something you’ve been itching to ask? Maybe something food-related, something a little bit kinky or something completely random? Have fun with it, then be sure to check back next Tuesday for my answer!

And now, onto the questions…

1. Who in your family is most likely to be attacked by a bear? 

As much as I hate the thought, probably my younger brother. He’s quite a nervous fellow who likes to pause and contemplate his next move, he also does stuff like wears animal-themed onesies while out walking which would probably make him stand out more and maybe even make him seem interesting to said bear. My Mum and I know what to do in “in case of bear” situations – not that we get them wild in the UK – but we are both former Girl Guides with some survival training. My brother on the other hand used his time in the Boy Scouts to mess about with his mates. Just another example of why the Girl Guides were clearly better than the Boy Scouts next door 😉 

2. When using a urinal, where do you look? 

That I know of and outside of travel, festival and medical requirements, female urinals in the UK aren’t a thing. We do have unisex toilets though, which frankly cause an uproar enough. I don’t know that adding female urinals to the mix is really going to fix anything there, you might even cause some women to blow a gasket. 

British women are used to stalls not dividers or, pray tell, even a wall of urinals, so what is replacing a normal sitting toilet with a urinal in a stall going to achieve? Female urinals are probably also less accessible for disabled women, unless they’re the squat toilet type, so that’s going to cause issues, too. 

Finally, and to be so crudely spoken here, women don’t really have the control mechanism that men have. We don’t have a nozzle like our male and AMAB friends do, so peeing for women just kind of… happens. You know how some guys wonder how the hell we can collect a urine sample? Well then. Our hope is that gravity will take hold and it will all just go where it’s supposed to go, but women have no guarantees that something else won’t happen down there and it won’t just trickle down our leg instead. By maximising our catch capacity with a regular sitting toilet, we can be reasonably reassured that it will be a successful event amd we won’t be walking out of the restrooms with soggy trousers. 

That being said, if I did use one then I’d keep my eyes to my business, but in all likelihood then I probably wouldn’t use a urinal. I like my life to be made simpler, not harder. 

3. When was the last time you actually spoke with a telemarketer?

Ha, a couple of weeks ago: “I am calling up because you have been in a motor vehicle accident, okay?”, “umm, I don’t think so, I don’t even drive. Please take me off of your call list. Thankyou, goodbye” *hangs up*. I’m lovely, honest 😉

4. Which vegetable would make a decent weapon? 

My first thought was a turnip, because you could probably throw that at someone and do some collateral, but then I’m thinking maybe frozen or dried peas and a peashooter or a catapult. I’m a fisherwoman, so I’m used to “baiting my ground” all the time. Would I use a bait catapult to deliver a direct or shower of solid peas? Hmm hmm… maybe. I also remember being allowed to chase my brother around with a pea shooter and a bag of dried marrowfat peas once, and we made sure that they came tight, because isn’t that just what siblings are for?

5. Do you clap at the end of an airplane flight? 

I don’t fly, but probably I would. I have a penpal who is a pilot and since meeting him then I feel like I appreciate pilots more. There again, and in my mind, that would be like applauding any time I got off of a train or a bus or out of a taxi. That could make things really weird, so perhaps not, then?

Bonus: New Year’s Resolutions, did you make any?

A few:

1. To make more time for myself

It didn’t start brilliantly but it hasn’t started badly, either. I planned to journal and meditate before sleep last night but I didn’t get that far in the end. Shit happens, I can do better from here.

2. To say “no” more often

Oddly enough I had my ex-sub approach me last night, and though he really, really, desperately wants me back, I had to say no. Times have changed, I have changed, I’m probably not the sadistic witch that I used to be back then and honestly I think I burned myself out by trying to be. I’m honoured that he has great and favourable memories of me, and particularly that I made him feel understood and that I still continue to have a positive influence on him, but I can no longer be what I used to be. In part because I’m so damn busy running my blog now, but also because I’m married now and often busy living a married life, or even a polyamorous, not-immediately-kinky one. He deserves someone who can give him the time and attention that he is looking for, and that person is no longer me. It would be unfair on both of us for me to even try.

3. To treat others how they treat me (to a point)

Look, I get the whole treating others nicely, treating people better thing, but what I’ve found in life is that when you let people get away with treating you however they want to treat you, they think they can keep getting away with it. Case in point, the road that I grew up on was rough. I mean really rough – burnt out cars, kids sniffing glue on the street corner, people and animals getting beaten in the street for whatever reason, and so on. I used to get bullied just for walking to the shop, just for being there, and the therapist I saw at the time told me to ignore it. Ignoring it is all well and good, but how do you ignore it when the little twerps pick up a rock and throw it at you? Try to ram your ankles with a pushchair (sometimes even with their baby brother or sister still inside it)? Sometimes you had to learn to stand your ground. 

Just yesterday I was doing some work in the back garden and my neighbour made a comment about “someone of your stature” (he means my weight). I mean really? Where is the need? All I could think was that “a diet and fitness can change this, but there is no diet for ignorance nor exercise for stupid”. 

I’m not an unreasonable person. If you treat me well, with empathy and respect, I will be your best friend. I will move heaven and earth for you when you need me to, because I am like that. I will sing your praises when you accomplish great things, because I am like that. But, if you treat me like shit then I will say my piece now and I will not hold back in cutting you out of my life. Kindness and respect is not a right, so never, ever treat them that way. 

That’s it from me for this TMI Tuesday! Join me next week for the next round. Do you have any questions for me for next week? Don’t forget to leave them in the comments below!
