Let leave out the water and mint and pass the bottle.
Star... You have a point..Many of the younger set don't seem to understand general common decency, or have any sense of morality (with everything doable), and not realizing all of the sacrifices women had to make to change (the 50's and 60's norms).
VampireLily...You also have a point...Women's roles have changed and things are a lot easier now than they were. I think both times have benefits and drawbacks.
Education, common sense, general courtesy, and appreciation for the struggle we (women) face would go a long way in continuing our overall advancement in the world.
Mint Juleps and butt plugs, a new Christmas tradition started in 2013 by the members of the SKMB!
It's going to be massive!
I'd prefer to not have to hear a conversation (on air) about butt plugs as I'm also of the mindset that a little mystery is better, but I do think in this case she's retold a 'funny' story and the media have picked it up an ran with it... unless this was a planned publicity stunt of course, in which case... again, f'k off media and publicists, I'm not interested.
What is a mint julep?
I just nearly spit out my tea...... LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!
You do not want one Flakie. We are mixing them strong tonight lol. It is a southern drink with mint water and booze.
The culture where I grew up was somewhat different. Newfoundland did not join Canada till the middle forties so our ways are different. Any maritime area knows that sometimes the women had to be strong characters. Men were at sea and the women had to do the part of mother and father a lot of time. Mom's great grandmother smoked a pipe which was not the norm. She was have her bit of baccy one they when the neighbours came round and stuck her pipe behind her ear. There was an ember still burning...and the smoke encircled her head like a wreath. Lol that story has been passed down for sure. Some of the ladies were tougher than the men.
I LOVE that story....
I would love, love, love to visit Newfoundland some day. From what I have gathered the people there are the best - friendly, funny, not pretentious and truly "the salt of the Earth".
Canada became confederated in 1867 and Newfoundland was the last hold-out to join, so I can see where their traditions run deep
Visit George St. in St.John's if you go....it is a must!
Okay Staro - can I take you with me?
You will need me to help you stagger from pub to pub. You will also get Screeched In.
...please god...don't let her film "The Butt Plug Games: Catching Fire"....
If Jennifer Lawrence needs assistance.....undressing...something like that, I'll take one for the team only if I have to.
I would butter her toast........
The back door...?
I am Scandinavian, where these issues are discussed quite openly. So I should probably keep my mouth shut.
I didn't find the story shocking at all, to me it's kind of funny, and very embarrassing - and most of all, not her fault! A maid shouldn't open boxes she finds under guests beds, I would have been furious if a maid invaded my privacy like that! (Mind you, my friends don't get me gifts like these. LOL)
But, I guess it is all about what is socially acceptable in different countries.
