Oh, so that’s what that word means.

Wow!  dievca hasn’t really run into this in her Life.
she’s lucky, she’s surrounded by some wonderful Men.

That said she had an issue with one of her building’s maintenance men.

It all started with the dishwasher breaking. The maintenance guy truly did not listen to what was happening and just told dievca that she’s using the wrong soap (Cascade?!?!). The guy didn’t touch the dishwasher, nor did he come back to work on it – then he closed the work order, that evening, citing that dievca agreed there wasn’t a problem.

What?!?!?
There’s black water in the bottom – it’s not draining.

(Note: dievca has seen this maintenance man having deep discussions with Men in the building, never a Woman. she didn’t get to say a word and she thinks it was more than just a bad day.)

dievca re-opened up that work order so fast, your head would’ve spun and she hit up a couple of doormen and maintenance crew with her ire.

It was noticeable when they sent another person the next day. The sink needed snaking for a blockage and he listened to a cycle of the dishwasher —  and determined that the pump is burned out.

Put dievca on the list for a new dishwasher!

The work order is still open and apparently dievca is not a lunatic.
Oh, and using Cascade is ok.

Looks like dievca will be washing dishes in the nude until the new machine arrives!


‘Chemical Play’: Some like it HOT!

Does anyone have burnout from the Holidays? Can dievca distract you with a Hot Chili Pepper or two?

Definition – What does Chemical Play mean?

Chemical play refers to the use of chemical substances, often in liquid form, during sex. These chemicals are means of increasing excitement through different tactile sensations. They are applied sensually through caresses and sometimes, even using sexual body parts such as the penis or nipples. Substances used include chili peppers, tabasco, lemon, cinnamon, ginger, Bengay, Tiger Balm, and Vicks Vapor Rub. These are applied anywhere on the body, including favorites such as the genitals, anus, inner thighs, and tongue.

Chemical play can be very exciting. It adds another level of sensation during sex which can increase the intensity of orgasms.  Remember that introducing foreign substances to ones body has innate risks. At the very least, applying these chemicals can cause temporary burns. Safety FIRST! When one intends to play with chemicals, test the substances and have items that can counter their effects nearby, such as water, milk, and anti-inflammatory medicine.

A comprehensive primer on CHEMICAL PLAY – please read before playing!

plus a haiku from a Cape Cod hot sauce maker Rooster Fricke called “The Chili”:

Ooooh! It’s way too hot.
I will not do that again.
Until the next time.


Happy New Year – may your Dreams come true.


Coffee Panic

Photo: dievca 11/2018

dievca is out of coffee….until she thought about it and remembered the espresso.
There was a good 2-3 minutes of panic.

Alessi Moka 6 Cup espresso

dievca hasn’t cleaned and seasoned her new and larger espresso maker (6 Cup Alessi Moka), she was thanking the gods that she still has the little guy with the melted handle.

Whew…at least dievca didn’t have to work this morning before she heads to Jury Duty. Getting a coffee at 5:30 am on the street is tough.
BTW, it is the 2nd to last day of GJ. Apparently you cannot bring alcohol to the Jury Room for a finishing celebration – it was asked. dievca was thinking Prosecco.

Love to you, may your coffee come early and excellent.


Avoiding the Costume on Halloween~


dievca puts the pumpkin on her door to let kids know she is open to Trick-Or-Treating, she cuts fresh pumpkins for Jack-O-Lanterns, she loves seeing the kids in costumes.
she can’t seem to generate as much energy and enthusiasm for adults in costume….listening to a friend bleat about a costume of a pregnant Ripley from Alien doesn’t inspire her.
And the thought she has a Halloween engagement party AND a Halloween-themed wedding really doesn’t grab her. (Two different couples)

Apparently, she is no fun~

Under that duress of that looming costume engagement party AND wedding, dievca is trying to figure out a way to work some type of clothing that doesn’t make her a curmudgeon.

Can she get drink over here?

Inspired by air-breathing arthropods that have eight legs…

Here is her spring-board of possible items:

OK, the last photo is IT! Look how adorable on a kid – what a mess on an adult.
Help, this ship is sinking.


Enter my coccon~


Entangled in the sheets.
Enmired in the depths.
Soft fabrics, cozy temperatures,
I won’t emerge soon.

10.5 hours and I’m still reading in bed….my coffee craving will kick me out.

Getting back at it in Style!

Always trying to look like a Lady.
dievca is considering her workout in heels~
she did tell her trainer that her quads held up well in 3.5 inches heels
and that she plans to wear heels for the next 3 decades…
You always need a goal!
