The title of this book has great meaning!
dievca thought this appropriate for Master and her meeting, she’s not sure he agrees ~
“I like lots of things. But there are three things I like most. Love, love and love.” — Anita EkbergPosted: May 27, 2021
I’m very much bigger than I was, so what? It’s not really fatness, it’s development.
“I enjoy having a fabulous amount of nice lingerie.”
dievca’s favorite quote from Ginger Rogers:
There’s a verse in the Bible:
‘Those who are barren have more children than those who give birth.’
There are young people all over the world who come to me for advice and love.
I have all the children I can handle.
The final photo is a custom Corset/Garter Belt from Ginger Rogers which sold on 1st Dibs.
Nothing travels faster than the speed of light, with the possible exception of bad news, which obeys its own set of laws.
– Douglas Adams
Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I’m not sure about the universe.
– Albert Einstein
We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn’t want to meet.
– Stephen Hawking
Maybe this world is another planet’s hell.
– Aldous Huxley
There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
– Douglas Adams

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….
As women, we all have certain weaknesses.
I know one who can’t resist pretty shoes but has nothing suitable to wear with them.
Others adore frilly lingerie but never have any money to buy outer clothing.

Where do you spend your money and what is your weakness?
dievca’s weaknesses: Shoes and Lingerie
“Luck favors the prepared, Darling.” – Edna “E” Mode
“A flock of flirting flamingos is pure, passionate, pink pandemonium-a frenetic flamingle-mangle-a discordant discotheque of delirious dancing, flamboyant feathers, and flamingo lingo.”
~ Charlie Harper
but any Ladies with a size 8.5+ shoe
interested in Pink Flamingos,
Kitschy, but fun!
“The more joy we have, the more nearly perfect we are. ~ Spinoza”

The point when you come home and my nose nestles into your neck. The smell of you tickles my senses and brings me immense Joy. My eyes close, my shoulders relax and you inhale/exhale deeply into my hair. The tension rolls off. Peace.
The flesh may not be perfect, but the nooks, crannies, and scars read like poetry. The epic piece is called You. And the pleasure derived from the re-reading of the work cannot be measured. It is a treasure of Life, of Us.
The quote from Walt Whitman applies in its short form.
In the long form, one us falls short and it’s not you.
But, the sentiments do offer an altruistic way to live life.
This is what you shall do
“This is what you shall do; Love the earth and sun and the animals, despise riches, give alms to every one that asks, stand up for the stupid and crazy, devote your income and labor to others, hate tyrants, argue not concerning God, have patience and indulgence toward the people, take off your hat to nothing known or unknown or to any man or number of men, go freely with powerful uneducated persons and with the young and with the mothers of families, read these leaves in the open air every season of every year of your life, re-examine all you have been told at school or church or in any book, dismiss whatever insults your own soul, and your very flesh shall be a great poem and have the richest fluency not only in its words but in the silent lines of its lips and face and between the lashes of your eyes and in every motion and joint of your body.”
“This is what you shall do…” by Walt Whitman,
from the preface of Leaves of Grass.
You can often wash your troubles away with the right kind of bath.
Throw everything you have into the tub:
“A mother is neither cocky, nor proud,
because she knows the school principal may call at any minute
to report that her child had just driven a motorcycle through the gymnasium.”
Mary Kay Blakely
Note to self: Never ride a motorcycle in stilettos and a miniskirt.
Friends and good manners will carry you where money won’t go.
Something to ponder with Donald Trump lurking about….
“Slip into silent slumber. Sail on a silver mist. Slowly but surely, your senses will cease to resist. Trust in me. Just in me. Shut your eyes, and trust in me.” — “Trust in Me”
The Jungle Book
“I’ve got gadgets and gizmos aplenty…I want more.” — “Part of Your World”
The Little Mermaid
“Darling it’s better down where it’s wetter.” — “Under the Sea”

“One can get too familiar with vegetables, you know!” — Skinner,
“Head down…arms in…knees apart?” — Flynn
