dievca was running monochromatic in Navy….
she needed to add a little spunk:
swhen dievca was in College she lived in an older dorm that had deep oak window frames/casings which went up almost to the 12 foot ceilings. After doing laundry at 3:00 am, she stood on the sofa and when that didn’t work, the windowsill, to hang up a sweatshirt on a hanger to dry from the window rod.
she slipped, she fell, she sounded like an elephant when she ricocheted off the window ledge hitting the right side of her back thigh, she hit the floor, she woke her roommate. The bruising was huge and you can still feel the ledge-shaped divet in her muscle/fat…yep, just checked – still there.
What dievca learned is that you should own decent step ladders, AND USE THEM!
Her NYC apartment doesn’t have ceilings quite as high as her dorm room, but they reach 9 feet in some areas. That makes painting a wall without an extension pole a little too much for dievca – but with the 3 step-ladder? A snap!
Something that has traveled with dievca from space to space are the two Cosco Step Ladders from Bed, Bath and Beyond. The two-step and three-step versions:
At $29.99 and $39.99 — an excellent and useful buy. They fit behind opened doors or in closets.
When getting on in age, the bruises don’t fade as fast and braking a bone is a more likely option~

As dievca and Master were traversing Midtown to get some Holiday Photos, lo and behold they ran into some Really Big Balls… Master got on to a roll of quips that had dievca in stitches and, of course, dievca couldn’t remember any of them for today’s post.
So, she asked Master if he remembered what he said:
“In New York City, even the buildings have big balls.”
“If you have big balls, you don’t need to show them.”
Would you mind giving my balls a quick polish?
Size up those balls, Boys!
Not as delicious as Schweddy Balls.
On their Christmas show, NPR hosts Margaret Jo McCullin (Ana Gasteyer) and Terry Rialto (Molly Shannon) welcome baker Pete Schweddy (Alec Baldwin) to “The Delicious Dish” to discuss his famous holiday dessert: Schweddy balls. [Season 24, 1998]
Do you have any good quips?
Thinking of you.
dievca and Master connected this week to celebrate the end of dievca’s Jury Duty. A simple evening: Prosecco, Dinner, Apple Crisp, Sex.
The sex got a bit interesting when dievca went all in and raised her head up to meet Master at a quick clip and Master dropped his head down to meet dievca at the same time. dievca heard a….
as her forehead connected with Master’s nose and blood dripped onto her chest. A flying leap out of the bed brought Master a towel and a dodge into the kitchen added some ice.
Master went into the bathroom to clean-up and dievca checked His nose to see what damage was done. she didn’t feel anything on the bridge of Master’s nose and he said he wasn’t in pain. The crunch might have been underneath and more internal. Master grabbed dievca’s hand and lead her back to bed to continue on, albeit at a more gentle rate.
Can’t let a little blood stop the Joy.

Apparently the ADA’s came into a Court Room of the NYC Grand Jury and it smelled heavily of wine, so alcohol has been forbidden in the Courthouse – a memo went out~
Yes, dievca did ask the Warden if the Jury could do something afterward. No go~
she will work the morning holding a coffee, do her Jury Duty, have one Prosecco before hopping on the bike to get to work for the second round.
An extra 20 hours a week (that includes the commute) has taken its toll. dievca needs to celebrate the end.
Who better to celebrate with than Talullah Bankhead?
Now let her get that damn 8 year pass for doing Grand Jury Duty….
