Review - XXX Rated Product Review

FOR ADULTS ONLY
A while ago I became part of Eden Fantasys Ambassador Program and had a chance to choose a product to review. I selected Belladonna's Toybox, a 3 dvd set.

I have to say the format of these dvd's was unusual. The premise is that the female host of a talk show invites 2 female guests to talk a bit about their bedroom lives and then invites them to select toys from her toy box and use them...on camera. It's kind of a very long infomercial for adult toys. While the first 2 dvds were somewhat educational, in that you had an opportunity to see how the toys are used, the 3rd dvd really didn't involve the toy box. While it may seem impressive and a bargain to basically get 3 dvds for the price of one, really only 2 dvds followed the format.

So, did the dvds have the intended effect? I would say so, and I think that one might possibly learn about a few new toys they might want to add to their own personal toy box.

Job Hunting

Ok, so I'm job hunting, like millions of Americans out there. I saw this and about bust a gut.



So who wants to be my wing person and be the crazy applicant that drives everyone else away?

Review - KT Tunstall "Tiger Suit" Cd

I was thrilled when the One2One Network invited me to review KT Tunstall's 3rd album, "Tiger Suit". It's been in stores since October 5th. From KTTunstall.com - Story:
"Tunstall has coined the term “nature techno” to encapsulate the album’s collision of raw, upfront rootsiness and sleek electronic textures -“think Eddie Cochrane meets Leftfield” she suggests. “The songs exist in other worlds for me,” she says, “and I was trying to evoke place through how they sounded.” And so, without sacrificing any of her personal storytelling touch, the sonic landscape shifts from the uninhibited tribal yelp of Uummannaq Song, inspired by her Greenland foray, to the analogue drone-meets-oriental chime and flutter of Lost, by way of Push That Knot Away – “a signature track of the album for me. I see it as taking place in a forest at night and it’s about confronting fear rather than running away”."
I have to say, I am not a fan of techno-pop, or , "nature techno", as KT Tunstall refers to it. Because I liked KT Tunstall's previous album, Eye To The Telescope, I decided to give it a try. I did manage to find 2 songs I really like on the new album, "Difficulty" and "(Still A) Weirdo" which has a beautiful acoustic guitar line.

* KT is a Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum, Scottish-born singer-songwriter
* Tiger Suit was released October 5th and her rollicking first single "Fade Like A Shadow" is a Top 20 hit at radio.
* KT will be on tour this Fall (10/31-12/1)
* KT's previous hit songs include - the Grammy-nominated "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree," "Suddenly I See," Other Side of the World" or "Hold On".

CD Track listing (you can listen to song samples on Amazon):
1. Uummannaq Song
2. Glamour Puss
3. Push That Knot Away
4. Difficulty
5. Fade Like A Shadow
6. Lost
7. Golden Frames
8. Come On, Get In
9. (Still A) Weirdo
10. Madame Trudeaux

Company Coming

I'm big on cooking and entertaining and I enjoy having "company" over, but it's a bit difficult to accommodate much more than my immediate family because of my blue light special dining table.

With the holidays approaching, it seems like a good time to upgrade my dining room table. I don't have a lot of space, so I'd really like to get a new drop leaf table, or a table that has leaves that can be added or taken away as needed.

Something like this would be perfect because it would work well with my modern oak kitchen cabinets.
I guess when I purchased my first new (not hand-me-down, not garage sale) dining set I wasn't thinking ahead to entertaining and having guests over.
