Who's She In Bed With Now?

I’m having an affair.

With many.

So many, that I’ve actually lost count.

I’m having an on-going affair that my husband is fully aware of and could really care less about.

And I’m in love.

I’m in love with….


And it’s an affair for life.

I’ve always been acutely aware of my need for words. Whether they are to be written, read or said.

I crave them.

If I don’t have a book to read at night, I panic.

And the smell of a bookstore...don't even get me started! Like a slice of freshly baked heaven.

Whenever I feel the word urge - I write. If not, I open a book and let the words fill me. That’s just how it works for me.

Though only in black and white, words are the color of life.

(That line sounded really good when I was drinking out of my "fancy-glass").

And, to me, nothing is as spectacular as being taken in by a captivating author. Pulled willingly into a vivid world created solely from the depths of their brilliant imaginations.

An author that makes me feel, see and anticipate.

No man more viral, no woman more beautiful no story more poignant.

I often find myself playing back my affairs to remember in my head, but I will always anticipate a new affair as if it were the first.

And I’m not ashamed to say that being a whore never felt so good!

Who's in the brothel with me? (-:

Books definitely cause less chafing than normal whoredom. on February 14, 2010 at 4:13 PM said...

A healthy addiction :)

Ooh, you are a book slut! Me too, isn't it awesome? Has always been that way for me, and people either totally appreciate or think it is weird and nerdy.

I think is excellent, and weird, and nerdy...!

Great job using your words -- I loved this post!

I'm in the brothel with ya. Words are life, no two ways about it!

Liz Mays on February 14, 2010 at 4:54 PM said...

Books are definitely worth whoring for!

Jayne Martin on February 14, 2010 at 4:55 PM said...

Sign me up for that brothel, girlfriend. If you haven't yet read "The Help" you're in for a treat. It was my favorite book of 2009. Mostly, though I'm finding myself drawn to memoirs and other non-fiction. Good writing, however, is good writing and I'm always in awe of those who do it well.

Nancy C on February 14, 2010 at 4:58 PM said...

Oh, I'm with you. Words are my drug of choice for sure.

Nicole @ Chic and Cheap Nursery on February 14, 2010 at 6:33 PM said...

Me, me! I'm a whore!


Ducky on February 14, 2010 at 7:13 PM said...

Oooh! Me *waving hand annoyingly* ME ME..I'm at the brothel!

...sigh...the smell of a bookstore.....

Shell on February 14, 2010 at 7:30 PM said...

Proudly claiming to be a whore, too!

ReformingGeek on February 14, 2010 at 7:34 PM said...

You've let the secret out!

Brilliant Sulk on February 14, 2010 at 8:36 PM said...

Gosh, I thought I was the only one who had a "fancy glass."

I don't feel so lonely anymore...

Claudya Martinez on February 14, 2010 at 9:43 PM said...

I am a lover of words too. If that makes me a whore so be it.

Anonymous said...

I used to be a word-whore. Then the baby came along and now I practically fall unconsciously onto the bed as soon as I walk into the bedroom. No more energy for a book. *sigh* I miss it.

People Who Know Me Would Say: on February 15, 2010 at 5:45 AM said...

I'm not only in the brothel with you, I'm the madam. Check that. THE MADAM. There, much better.

Nezzy (Cow Patty Surprise) on February 15, 2010 at 7:19 AM said...

...What an affair to remember. I too am a lover of words. I love to tease, toy and play with them sometimes leaving a grand surprise.

Ya'll have a wonderful day!!!

hypermom on February 15, 2010 at 8:17 AM said...

I love reading, writing, editing; just about anything to do with words. I love reading poetry too, too bad I can't write 'em ;)

Anonymous said...

the bookstore is the most glorious place. it's like being a voyeur (sp?), peeping into other's stories. and still my heart.

Lothiriel on February 15, 2010 at 11:11 AM said...

I LOVE being at Borders or Barnes and Noble. I have my affairs there all the time; and then, we have coffee!!

Jen on February 15, 2010 at 1:31 PM said...

I too have a love affair with the written word. If I'm not writing I'm reading and if I'm not reading I'm talking and if I'm not doing any of those things I'm asleep where I still talk and dream about what I am going to write. Too bad I still haven't figured out the proper way to use commas.

I gather no Nook or Kindle for you. Hard to drool on something that might electrocute you if it gets wet. Do digital bits and bytes have any odor? I love the smell of a used book store...musty and cheap! That sounds so bad but I don't care.

Jules AF on February 15, 2010 at 5:00 PM said...

I love bookstores SO MUCH.

Unknown on February 15, 2010 at 7:18 PM said...

I'm also a word whore and writing addict. My brain is an easy lay. My keyboard is my bed. I can't resist a sexy synonym or provocative double entendre.

Sure, I love reading, I keep my library hard handy as I use it a lot.


Katherine on February 16, 2010 at 5:43 AM said...

I SO love reading. When I was young, I would sit down for a book and read it cover to cover. But with three kids and a full time job, I have NO time to read. BUT... I started the twilight books on a whim and found I could read while my daughter was in gymnastics. 1.5 hours of sheer bliss, READING. I missed it so much. Finished all the books. Have nothing left to read - suggestions? :)

Moooooog35 on February 16, 2010 at 6:01 AM said...

Are there pictures? If there are pictures then sign me up.

Vintage Christine on February 16, 2010 at 7:32 AM said...

When I read your post, your fancy-glass line made me think I'd heard it before. So of course I googled it and the first thing that popped up was a link to a 2008 exhibition at The Getty featuring polychromy in sculpture (check it out--there are some bee-YOU-tee-ful things). Then I remembered that it was "these are the moments of your life" from an old commercial, so I googled that and found my new favorite quote: "Be happy for this moment. This moment is your life." Omar Khayyam said that. So yes, I'm way deep in the brothel as well. It's nice here.

Ahhh - I am so there with you. 2 fav book stores of mine: Elliot's Bay Book Store in Seattle and the book store on the main strip in Manchester Vermont ( I think it's Northshire)...ahhh...affairs to remember (to be totally cliche)....

Robin on February 16, 2010 at 8:00 AM said...

I love bookstores browse, to buy or just to so sit in...Borders..Take me Away...! ...Barnes and Noble..the best little bookstore in internet porn...the Public Library....government paid for prostituion....Im with you..Im a whore for it all...

Deb on February 16, 2010 at 4:49 PM said...

I'm a cheap whore. I love the library. It's better than going to Home Depot or Lowes. All those books just for ME...and they're FREE!

adrienzgirl on February 16, 2010 at 8:57 PM said...

My hubs often accuses me of cheating on him with Barnes, or Noble, *gasp*, I do them both at the same time, the same place and then I have coffee. What's worse? I take my kids with me!

Shutyerwhoremouth! I kid you not!

Organic Motherhood with Cool Whip on February 17, 2010 at 4:50 AM said...

I am!! And what really sucks is that my hubby will NEVER ever ever ever never go to the bookstore with me. He hates to read. So I just have to have my affair all on my own.

Anonymous said...

My most lustful affair occurred with the Twilight series. Oh baby! I couldnt get enough!

The Absence of Alternatives on February 17, 2010 at 6:22 PM said...

VD free! Woohoo!

I have to laugh though 'cause once I heard someone called those book cover thingy Book Condoms... LOL

Louise | Italy on February 19, 2010 at 11:14 PM said...

A wonderful addiction, and I admit I have it too -- The second-hand bookshops on Charing Cross Road are what I miss most about leaving London and migrating to Italy.

Pearl on February 20, 2010 at 12:22 PM said...

I probably read a book a week and have a pile of at least 45 books waiting for me to get to them.

I'm with ya, sister!


Brenda on February 20, 2010 at 3:42 PM said...

I'm with you! My idea of a perfect day involves many hours of reading.

Visiting from BPOTW

Lanita on March 9, 2010 at 11:57 AM said...

Amen Sister! And I always feel so sad, almost in a mournful way when I finish a book. If I don't have a stack of unread books on my nightstand, I panic.

Grab An Award-see below

Finally, you do not need to be a recipient of an award to give an award!

Grab An Award – My way of awarding it forward. The only rules are: THERE ARE NO RULES (Only rule is no rules? Rule for rules? Is that a rule? I’m so confused)

And what is nicer than giving an award with no strings attached just because?

So in the spirit of fun blog awarding and ‘cause I think they’re a great way to connect and share the blog love with our awesome fellow bloggers (without the chain letter affect-they give me the willies), I have created The Divine Blogger and Rock Star Blogger Awards to grab-I know, fancy right? -(o.k. so I won't quit my day job)

Grab it and let the lucky recipient (s) know that you have given them a rule-free award and not to be afraid to pick it up on your site. Once they grab it from your site, they are free to pass it along to others (rule-free of course). And anyone can grab it from their sites to pass on as well.

Hope you all enjoy awarding it forward!

Now hurry! Go make room in your closet for all that good karma. And please get rid of those old sweatpants while you're at it! (-:

Thanks so much to Lisa at (the Grandma sites got it going on yo) and Robyn at Simply Delightful and Tamara at homespunheartscandlesand Jane @agingmommyblog for this award. You guys are awesome!

Okay, here are my 10 honest things about myself:

1. I am an extremely well balanced individual

2. I am easily distracted

3. I don’t take rules seriously

4. I lied about number one (number 3 made me do it)

5. I have a short attention span

6. I often don’t finish what I sta..
