I’m doing this kind of post today, a picture one because, well, it’s fairly easy and not taxing my brain. Most of my cells today are focused on Forever In Blue Jeans as I am in the final turn. I’ve come around the last bend and can see the checkered flag at the finish line. I will be pouring a lot of my time this week into getting this book done. I did think though that I should leave y’all with some images of things that have been inspiring me lately…
Oh and for those of you that missed the announcement on Twitter and Facebook, I did, infact, get one of these…
I love it. I really do. Did I need it? No. But I did want one. I got a coupon in the mail from Best Buy and bought it with that. Getting some $$ of it was, well, easier to swallow. I do enjoy it a lot. The coffee is not as strong as I am used to making, so the caffeine jolt isn’t very big for me in one cup. A cup of French press coffee has a serious punch to the system that drip coffee, no matter how it drips, can come close to. I do find myself a victim of the convenience and drink more than I should now in one day. I’m chalking that up to new and need to get my money’s worth out of it. At the same time, when I was using my French press regularly, it was one 12oz cup a day. Now with the Keurig it’s more like 2 7oz cups a day. Either way, no matter how I’m trying to justify it, I do love it and am grateful to all those that participated in my blog about it a couple of weeks ago. One thing I’ve discovered, is that it would be fun to have K-cup swap. Each person is going to like different flavors and varieties. I will use the Keurig more for flavored coffees than regular. I have bought the Cinnamon Roll, the Kahlua, and the Espresso Blend (used this one to make an iced caramel macchiato. Not as potent as from an espresso machine, but it did work well.) But, again, I can see a swap working out well for a group of people. Might have to see how one can make this into a blog thing…grin.
Hope all of you have a great week.

According to the World English Dictionary as cited on Dictionary.com, Porn, also called: Porno, publications or broadcasts that demonstrate an unhealthy or voyeuristic interest in a particular subject.
Well, okay. Unhealthy, I don’t know about that, but I’m sure there are cases to prove it. Voyeuristic, oh hell yes.
When the word porn is brought up, the majority of people will immediately think SEX. C’mon, didn’t your brain go there? Be honest, y’all…
But when I think porn, it’s not JUST sex that my brain automatically goes to…
There’s all kinds of porn, if you apply the dictionary definition. There’s…
Coffee porn… It’s been brought to my attention that I have an unhealthy addiction to all things coffee.
Food porn… Same with food, food blogs, kitchens, appliances, etc…
Shoe porn…I think I’m developing this one. It’s slow going, but, I think it’s in the works.
Book porn…well, this one goes without saying. HELLO!
Cupcake porn…this one goes without saying too.
Car porn…not me.
Sports porn…this could be me with certain sports (NASCAR, College Football, Golf). My son though, oh yes, completely and totally.
Clothes porn…again, I think I’m developing this one.
Trader Joe’s porn…goes without saying.
Real Estate porn…eh, not so much, but DH lately, yep.
Social media porn…some days, oh yes.
Blog porn…some days, oh yes, especially food blogs, organization blogs, etc…
Music porn…without a doubt this has been true of me since I was 12.
Office supply porn…you just have no idea.
Make-up porn…when I think about this, all I can think of is Dakota Cassidy and Bitch Slap Yellow!
And of course, any kind of sexual thing can be turned into porn…toys, floggers and whips, leather, nudity, etc… Y’all know that I love all these, too.
See, it’s not just about sex when the word porn is mentioned. At least not for me. If you look at my Tumblr, you’ll see that I have all kinds of things on there from male/male sex to coffee to cupcakes to BDSM to lingerie to awesome sayings to beautiful landscapes and architecture… It’s all porn to me, based on the definition from dictionary.com.
So, what’s on your porn list… What do you have a voyeuristic interest in? What could you spend HOURS or DAYS looking at?
