Friday Finds (First Edition)

So I come across lots of things on the interwebs that I feel like sharing, so I figure every Friday we could do a "Friday Finds" to showcase some great things!

If you know of something Friday Find-worthy, drop me an email at jessica.m.cha@gmail.com and I will review it and see if it makes the cut.

This week I wanted to share a few things..

FASHION

First off are these AMAZING ruffled panties from Espalore. I found out about these thru a twitter connection.


You can find them online at - Espalore for only $160! Now ladies, you may be going "That's a lot of money for undies!" but these are custom made for you, and look great (see above) with any corset! She offers any color you can dream up, so you can literally match them up with anything! Every ruffle is hand trimmed and baby threaded so you are paying for quality! She also has a wide array of corsets available as well as many other items, so even if you're not planning on spending, at least go check out the shoppe!

And just in case you're wondering, the corset pictured here can be found here - Espalore Sasha Corset in Brocade for $449

GAMING

Find number two comes to us by way of  "I Got Games" who have recently made one of their free-to-play MMORPG's (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) available on Facebook, nonetheless.


Welcome all, to the world of GodsWar. I started playing this game this week, and I must say, it IS definitely a great find! Tons of quests and you level up pretty quickly as long as you play it.. and especially with it being on Facebook, being that it is browser-based, there is no download... So if you have any of the friends that are wary about computer games, because of all the bad things they've heard, tell them to come play with you.. It's a great introductory MMORPG! Even my little sister, who in her 20 years has never played an MMORPG, is a level 39 already and she started playing three days ago.


The graphics are easy on your computer, but nice enough to get by with.. think Runescape meets WoW. Check out these screenshots I took earlier.


Loading Screen

 Character Selection Screen

Worried nobody is playing this game? Don't be. I'm always in the same server, and traffic is "normal" level and there are tons of people..


Worried there's not enough high level monsters for killing? Meet the Boogeyman. He's in the suburbs of Athens.

Once you hit level 40, you can go 20% faster by doing a quest for a trusty steed!



You get the idea, right? Oh btw, I beat the shit outta that boogeyman.. :)


SEX


So as you all know by now, I am a sexual goddess, and don't mind talking about it either.. *faux devilish grin* So I often times look for toys and things of the like, to improve the experience.. And of course you should also know I am a huge fan of BDSM, so of course for the first edition of Friday Finds, I have to tell you about Extreme Restraints.

Why I love this site--it has a great variety as far as BDSM goes, it's all made well and it's not going to break your bank.

Some items I found quite appealing:

First off, is the Bondage tape.. this is great for someone who wants to try out bdsm, but doesn't want to dive head first into something they're not sure of.. I usually recommend this to people who ask about getting started.


Next is something everyone can enjoy. A vibrating tongue "ring".. I say ring because it actually goes around your tongue, not through it. **Sidenote.. model is wearing WAY too much makeup**



And lastly, the binders. Neoprene is what I like to refer to as non-committal. They're velcro. If someone decides halfway through that enough is enough, they can come out of them easily. Also great for beginners, or for M/s practicing obedience training!

(Nice thighs hehe)

------------------------

So that's it for Friday Finds. Hope you have enjoyed it! I'm really glad to have the opportunity to share it with you! Stop by next week to see what's new, won't you? :)

Sunshine on a Cloudy Day

So my four year old niece Zoe was just visiting, and I was showing her how to use Microsoft Paint.. which she picked up rather quickly.. I would post some of the pictures here, but she also found the undo button quite amusing, so none of them ever got saved, just erased, so she could start over..

Then she asked if I would draw her.. so of course I caved.. well it wasn't enough that she was in street clothes, so i had to undo that and she demanded to be a ballerina... then she wanted bows in her hair.. then she wanted to be on stage.. then she wanted an audience..

She then proceeded to tell me who was going to be in the audience... and who was taller.. and that she wanted a rainbow and a horse on her ballerina costume..

So I figure, since I just spent an hour drawing it, and since she wanted an audience, I would post it here and give her one.. and below is a picture of Zoe with me.. so you know who was behind it all.. lol

The Countdown to Zero

Countdown to Zero traces the history of the atomic bomb from its origins to the present state of global affairs: nine nations possess nuclear weapons capabilities with others racing to join them, with the world held in a delicate balance that could be shattered by an act of terrorism, failed diplomacy, or a simple accident. Written and directed by acclaimed documentarian Lucy Walker (Devil’s Playground, Blindsight), the film features an array of important international statesmen, including Jimmy Carter, Mikhail Gorbachev, Pervez Musharraf and Tony Blair. Magnolia Pictures is releasing the film in North America; HISTORY™ has North American broadcast rights. The film was produced by Academy Award® winner and 2009 nominee Lawrence Bender (Inglourious Basterds, An Inconvenient Truth) and developed, financed and executive produced by Participant Media, together with World Security Institute.







Guys, I'm sure you know enough about me by now that you know this is something I completely agree with...

Dr. Michio Kaku (my hero), world renowned physicist, has discussed this topic many times in the past. He states that this is a very sensitive time for us, as the human race. We are the brink of becoming a Level 1 Civilization (there are different types.. we're level zero right now, not in control of anything.. just drifting around on a big rock in space) and the only thing that could stop us from being level one, is if we destroy ourselves with technology like a nuclear weapon. He, himself, had the opportunity to work for some nuclear weapons manufacturers and decided against it--so that he may use his talents to better the world, instead of harming it.

So please, call your local theatres and ask/insist/demand that they bring Countdown to Zero to your town. I mean, if you want to get the word out about living on a safe world..

I'm calling in the morning.. How 'bout you?

O' hello, Cello.

So it's something I've thought about on numerous occasions. I've thought about learning to play the guitar, but always thought it sounded hokey. Every hipster, redneck and rockstar wannabe learns the guitar. I'm not that.

Something deep inside my soul tells me there is an elegance about me, that only few can see or understand.

When I was little, my godmother lived across the street from me, and nearly everyday after school I would go across the street and hang out with Carol and Gilbert. They were the sweetest people you've ever met in your life. Carol used to collect coins with my birth year on them throughout the year, and every year for my birthday she would give me a Leggs pantyhose box full of coins. She kept them in her music room, sitting atop her upright piano. Across the room from the piano sat an organ. Hanging on the walls were various violins and violas. I used to ask her if I could play them and she would let me..

The first time I ever dragged the bow across the strings, I felt so me. And I sat there, rocking the bow over the strings over and over in front of the organ as she sat at the chair a few feet in front of me.. I never wanted to stop playing that thing. But eventually I would, just because I knew if I didn't stop myself, I would do it forever. And she used to smile at me so big and tell me how wonderful it sounded.

But when I've thought on it in the past, I assumed she was just saying that to make this silly little girl happy. But now, thinking back on it, I remember when I took up the trumpet.. ha.

Nobody, not even Carol, entertained me about my talent, or lack thereof.

But for some reason, again.. tonight.. I started listening to the cello.

I've tried playing the guitar, see.. but I have a girly version of my grandfather's hands. I have long fingers, but they're broad and I have a hard time fingering the strings properly. When I was little, playing Carol's violin, my fingers danced over the strings like it was nothing. If I tried now, I am sure I wouldn't be able to do it as well.

So you have this big beautiful instrument, the cello. It resonates like a violin, except instead of chinning it, you hold it, embrace it.. while you play. Your body becomes one with the instrument as you play. It's got to be the most passionate instrument in the world. I've had dreams of playing a cello ever since I first saw one, when I was younger.

So tomorrow I think I will visit Carol. She doesn't have many visitors now since her children have grown and Gilbert passed a few years ago.. I'll return as if I was an eight year old girl with skinned knees and big dreams. Walk up those incredibly steep steps with what used to be tigerlillies (my favorite flower) growing alongside the wrought iron railing. See those ducks on the porch, that she dressed all year round, when I was little.. that she hasn't dressed since Gil died.

It makes me want to cry. In a way, I was closer to Carol and Gil than I was my own family. They appreciated me and the way I thought.. they helped me see the positive side of the world. And for that, I thank them with all my heart.

So my heart is swayed immensely just listening to this music, over and over. And you see the softer and more determined side of me, instead of the humorous or grumpy me. This is the side of me nobody ever gets to see, because I am usually trying to make jokes to deal with emotional issues that I can't handle otherwise. So maybe I will let this part of me breathe more often. Its bittersweet, peaceful, emotional and studious.. this side of me..

Life is all about experiencing each other, I think. The people you encounter, whether you realize it or not.. you take a piece of them as part of yourself. Everyone you meet molds you into something new. Changes your ideals. (Whether based on a good or bad experience, what you take from it.. that's solely up to you)

I've always dreamed of touching someone's life. I have this passionate fire burning inside me and instead of trying to put it out, why not let myself feed that fire until I can no longer be the only vessel for it..

I truly love you all. Your existence makes the world worth living in, whether you realize it or not.

Being Sick is the Pits.

So as you know I have been sick..

It started around December 20th, but I assumed it was just a change in weather.. figured it was just a cold..
Well a week or two passed by and I was still feeling pretty gross. Didn't wanna do anything but sleep all day.. and even sleep was broken up by coughing.. would wake up with a headache and I was pretty sure I was dying.

So here is what my life has been like.









And repeat all of that... over and over and over....  in no particular order...

So how have you guys been doing?

Here's Your Sign: Astrology Edition

So as you may have heard, astronomers are saying that the constellation of Ophiuchus has returned to our skies. What does this mean for us? Have our signs changed? Will people's signs change that were born after 2009?


With so much talk on the social media networks like Twitter and Facebook, it seems like a doomsday tale. But what does this truly mean for us?


The following except is from the Washington Post (I will link to it at the bottom of this post)


"So, you've spent your whole life happily smug in your star sign. You're a fish! Swimming in two directions! You're intuitive, imaginative, unworldly! And then today's Web is aflame with the news: You are not a Pisces. You are an Aquarius. Your star sign has been wrong your whole life. All along, you've been a freaking water carrier. This is not cool.
According to Parke Kunkle, a board member of the Minnesota Planetarium Society, cool or not, it's written in the stars. Star signs were created some 2,000 years ago by tracking where the sun was in the sky each month. However, the moon's gravitational pull has slowly moved the Earth in its axis, creating about a one-month bump in the stars' alignment, reports the Minnesota Star Tribune. Now, during what we think as the month of Pisces, the sun is actually in the sign of Aries.
The new dates would therefore be:


Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16
Aquarius: Feb. 16-March 11
Pisces: March 11-April 18
Aries: April 18-May 13
Taurus: May 13-June 21
Gemini: June 21-July 20
Cancer: July 20-Aug. 10
Leo: Aug. 10-Sept. 16
Virgo: Sept. 16-Oct. 30
Libra: Oct. 30-Nov. 23
Scorpio: Nov. 23-Dec. 17
Sagittarius: Dec. 17-Jan. 20
Is this the dawning of a new age of Aquarius? Well, Kunkle is an astronomer who is not too keen on the practice of astrology. When asked by telephone if the new star locations now require us all to switch our loyalty to a new sign, he demurred. "I can tell you what the science is, but I'm not going to tell you what your personality is based on the location of things."
Commentators have also responded to the initial article, saying the new location of the earth does not matter. One wrote, "Oh for heaven's sake (oops), how can people with Ph.D.s be so ignorant? Of course astrologers know about precession -- they've known since about 200 BC. Horoscopes always take it into account... Sheesh."
The commentator is correct that this is not new information. Live Science reported on the role of "precession" on astrology in 2007. Precession is the phenomenon of the moon causing the earth to "wobble" on its axis.
Other astrologists say the ancient system was merely a practice used as a helpful hint for diviners. Blogger Jamie on Darkstar Astrology writes, "It is the planets moving across the backdrop of the stars which influence our lives, not the planets moving through imagined 30 degree divisions on a piece of paper."
So all those hapless men and women who rushed out in college to get a scorpion tattooed on their back don't need to now rush to sign up for laser removal. If you're going to believe that all the people born on your birthday are imbued with certain traits similar to your own in some mystical, ancient manner, you might as well believe it does not matter where the stars are in the sky to begin with. On the flip side, if you've never liked your sign, here's your chance to switch."


But after that piece, they have updated the article twice..


"Update: Well, strike that, you don't get to switch your sign. At least reader StarJack says so: "The stars are markers that drift, but our main points of reference are not directly the stars. They are the equinoxes (both spring and vernal) and the solstices which altogether make the four cardinal points of the zodiac which in turn determine the signs. The stars help us locate those points which define the SIGNS of the Zodiac which remain constant in relation to the equinox point. The CONSTELLATIONS do move about and we take that into consideration when locating planets."


And then the second update..


"Update take 2: To address a couple issues readers have brought up: the purported "new" sign of Ophiuchus is not a new sign. According to the original constellation chart, Ophiuchus made the list. People born between Nov. 29-Dec. 17 now fall under the Ophiuchus sign, also known as the Serpent Holder sign (according to Time, you'd therefore be an interpreter of dreams and vivid premonitions and envied by your peers and favored by your father and authority figures)."


Also TIME has been covering the story as well, saying:


"Astrology believers ... behold! Doubters ... aren't you just a little curious:
The constellation Ophiuchus represents a man wrestling a serpent, dividing the snake's body in two parts.  It is the only sign of the zodiac linked to real men, sharing traits with Imhotep, a 27th century BCE Egyptian doctor, and biblical Joseph.
Like Imhotep, Ophiuchus is considered a healer of men and a doctor of medicine or science. He seeks higher education and enlightenment. He is expected to achieve a high position in life. Like Joseph, he is an interpreter of dreams and vivid premonitions. He is envied by his peers and favored by his father and authority figures.
The Asclepius and the Caduceus, the medical staff, are based on the constellation.
Now all you new Ophiciuchi can move beyond your identity crises.


So what does this all mean? It means nothing at all has changed for you if you go by the sidereal zodiac whereas the sidereal zodiac has included this constellation in their zodiac. Below is an excerpt from wikipedia.


"Sidereal astrology is the system of astrology used by some Western and all Jyotish astrologers who base their interpretation around the use of the sidereal zodiac. Its primary feature is that the signs of the sidereal zodiac approximately align to the sky constellations of the same name. The signs therefore run between dates which are different from the tropical zodiac used by most Western astrologers. For example, Aries runs from about March 21 to April 19[1] in the tropical zodiac but extends from April 14 to May 14 in the sidereal zodiac[citation needed] (although the precise dates may vary depending on the sidereal system used).
The difference between sidereal and tropical astrology is in the opinion whether the system as defined by Ptolemy in the 2nd century should be fixed to the seasons, i.e. the orientation of the Earth relative to the solar system, or to the background stars, i.e. the orientation of the Earth relative to the galaxy. Tropical astrology chooses the former, sidereal astrology the latter option. Both systems coincide for times close to the historical definition of the Zodiac, i.e. Classical Antiquity"


However this comes as a shock to people who have followed the tropical zodiac. So think of it as a gift that you may make a conscious choice now as to which zodiac you choose to follow. So wipe the sweat from your brow and carry on as before. You're still who you thought you were. No need to panic. In fact, don't panic. And don't forget your towel.. #NerdLove


As for the new Ophiuciuchi:


"Taken from the Greek for 'serpent-bearer', the sign is portrayed by a man grasping the snake that is represented by the constellation Serpens. Ophiuchus was one of the 48 constellations proposed by Ptolemy in the second century. It was earlier known as Serpentarius, a Latin word for serpent-bearer.
The new sign will cover those born between Nov. 29 and Dec. 17 while Sagittarius will move into the 13 th position covering from Dec. 17 to Jan. 20. Some traits of those born in the sign of Ophiuchus are said to be honest, intellectual, sexually magnetic, prone to change and of course, jealous. They require special attention to understand, argue the new Zodiac sign believers."

So if you decide to embrace the sidereal zodiac charts, here is your new sign.



  • Capricorn: Jan. 20-Feb. 16. 
    Aquarius:
     Feb. 16-March 11. 
    Pisces:
     March 11-April 18. 
    Aries:
     April 18-May 13.

The Secret You



..................................................
With the help of a hammer-wielding scientist and a general anaesthetic, Professor Marcus du Sautoy goes in search of answers to one of science's greatest mysteries: how do we know who we are? While the thoughts that make us feel as though we know ourselves are easy to experience, they are notoriously difficult to explain. So, in order to find out where they come from, Marcus subjects himself to a series of probing experiments.

He learns at what age our self-awareness emerges and whether other species share this trait. Next, he has his mind scrambled by a cutting-edge experiment in anaesthesia. Having survived that ordeal, Marcus is given an out-of-body experience in a bid to locate his true self. And in Hollywood, he learns how celebrities are helping scientists understand the microscopic activities of our brain. Finally, he takes part in a mind-reading experiment that both helps explain and radically alters his understanding of who he is.



**The last experiment is kinda "wow".. but me, personally, I think there is more to consciousness than just brain activity.. 

Dating Mishaps

So as many of you know, I am constantly checking out dating sites.. partly because I believe there is more than one way to meet a person, and also because its funny to see what type of people respond to you...

Today for instance, I came across a few people.. (not literally.. I didn't come.. across. nevermind)

So first I get an email from this guy.


So I go to check out his profile..


So I immediately go back to my inbox and delete the email.. No way am I responding to that.

Then there was this guy.


His profile...


No.

Then this...


Should I even bother looking at his profile? Well, I am kinda curious.


Sigh.

One more email and then I am done..


Ahh, gheez. What the hell did that even say?!?

His profile?


Figures.

Conclusion?

The good ones are always foreign or gay.

Ignorance is NO Excuse.



Hey.. they say whenever you have to say something bad, you should always try to end on a good note.. and I did...

This is ridiculous though. I mean, first off.. where do these people learn how to speak? I went through the public education system in the same general area and did NOT learn to speak with such disregard for the English language.

And MANNERS? Jesus. I can't believe this.

Where did the sympathy and empathy go? Have we, as human beings, lost complete respect for each other?
