Fair warning…Sometimes I overshare

I’ve been perusing the web to bring you varied content.  Who wants to check my blog and read endless stories about the gross but cute things my kids do?  (Well, I do.  Obviously.  But I’m thinking of you guys.)  I also just realized that my Dad and my mother-in-law read my blog every now and then.  Hmmm…this caused me to pause and reevaluate the kinds of posts I share (you know, the sexy ones).  Then I figured, oh well.  Love me, love my quirks and occasional lack of discretion.

So there I was, killing time while my husband was out with friends (I make a sad face when he leaves but I’m secretly thrilled to have the house to myself after I usher the kids into bed), when I found this article about mail order clubs for..uhem… toys and such.  Kind of like cheese of the month club.  It’s a fun read, especially since this sort of thing has never been on the forefront of my mind (and if I’m going to spend money frivolously it’s going be on something edible, like dinner or something fabulous, like great shoes).

People and their habits fascinate me so I thought,  Are lots of people into this?  Should I change up our routine?  Not that anyone around here is complaining but everyone likes a surprise once in a while.

While we’re on the topic, have you seen the trailer for the new show Masters of Sex ?  I think Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen are great and you never have to sell me on either of the Bridges brothers.  And just so you don’t think my mind is always in the gutter, I’m equally excited for Homeland and Parenthood.

  1. It doesnt hurt to mix it up now, does it? 😉

  2. Worst email I ever got arrived this week.

    To: Carinn
    From: the boss

    I found your blog.


    Thankfully he liked it but I’m afraid I might never write again! All I do is overshare!

  3. Toys? My kids LOVE toys! Got anything Lego-related on that site?
    I have a sister-in-law who ran one of these Tupperware-type clubs but for, well, items that you can’t necessarily store baby carrots in, and they met and compared notes and, ahem, fingered the merchandise. Sounds like every married man’s MILFy dream come true.
    Several years ago I had my wife read a book called “Kitchen Confidential,” by now-celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain. I’m a former chef, and the tales of the dark underbelly of professional kitchendom helped explain a lot to her about my somewhat shameless side, my sensibility that she sometimes describes as “crass.” Crass my ass, sister! It wasn’t just working in kitchens, it’s simply that I’ve always been willing to tell just about anything to just about anybody. I frequently have to rein myself in on the blog. Sense of decorum and such. It’s refreshing to see that I’m not the only one.

    • I didn’t realize you’re a fellow chef. Do you ever miss the kitchen? I do, sometimes.

      • I do, but not the lifestyle. I finished up my professional career as an executive chef running a kitchen from 7 am to 11 pm six days a week. It effectively killed my then engagement to be married and led to massive alcoholism. Do I miss the rush and the creativity and the comradery? Yup. Do I miss the hours? Not at all. What’s your kitchen story?
