starting over

6 09 2009

I did it. I marked everything as read in google reader. The numbers were ridiculous.

I have on request – comment with your url so I can make sure you’re in my reader so I can stay updated!

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m off to pry BF’s attention from the tv. Lingerie may or may not be involved.


yes, there will be a pop-quiz to follow.

I’m glad there are still some people following the blog! I thought for sure when we got back on here everyone would have completely forgotten about us.

Good to know I was wrong! Thank you for the warm welcome back! I’m going to try to get Christina back on here as well. I know we’ve both been busy.  She’s got The Purse currently, don’t worry, we’ve still been sending it back and forth and writing in our journal, but haven’t had enough time to actually log onto wordpress and catch you all up on our lives.

Oh, I got a new desk! Which is what I’ve needed all along… somewhere for my laptop to sit so that I don’t keep going in and out of a wireless connection. So now I have no excuses.

Anyway, to fill you all in (on what you really haven’t missed out on):
*Mid-May: I moved (5 hours away from STS).
*Late-May: I left to be in my sister’s wedding the day after moving day, therefore leaving the new house with unopened boxes for a week to have some much-needed family time (which included getting to see Christina!!!!!!!), and I also saw The Facemaker at the wedding, ugh.
*End of May: I got back, was able to unpack and situate myself and work for a couple of months. Decided to start Weight Watchers to lose a few pounds.
*Late July: Went on a 2-week vacation to the mountains. Beautiful. STS and I decided to “take a break” because of the long-distance situation we had going on. Sprained my ankle while stumbling down the stairs drunk, while on vacation (and hanging out with a very cute guy, also drunk). Gave the cute guy head (don’t judge.) Played beer pong. Skinny-dipped.
*Mid-August: Got a visit from the other sister, spent most of our time as tourists in Big City (close to where I live now).
*Early this week: Got another visit, but from an old High School friend who was in the area, a very nice surprise! Watched all 6 seasons of Sex and The City, and also the movie.

So there you have it. Nothing too exciting. Alright, so since I’ve been gone for so long, I’m sure I have well over 2,000 unread GoogleReader messages that I’m probably not going to be able to get to… Anyone willing on catching me up on their life since we’ve been gone in a paragraph?

exes and oh!s,

P.S. How does Tease Me Tuesday sound to you?

Subscribers, a bad memory and anal sex

6 05 2009

So I just decided to check out the details of SATTS on Google Reader.

Holy testicles! There are 61 subscribers?!

That means there have been at least, oh, sayyy…. two of you out there wondering why the hell we suck so much at this blogging thing!

So sorry.

No really, I feel bad.

And I’m trying, really!

I just got NOTHIN’ in the way of sexy blog material for y’all. I keep racking my brain for some distant memories of crazy sex while I was in College Town but… damn. BF and I have been together about two years now and I’m sorry but the pot my sophomore year has wreaked havoc on my memory.

So I’m trying.

In the meantime, here’s something I’ve been wondering about (but gawd I don’t know why, because – and I’m being honest here and if I can’t be honest here where can I be? – I realllllllllllly don’t think I’d ever try it): What in the hell is so damn appealing about anal sex? I’m counting on SOMEBODY out there to help me out on this because I just. don’t get it.

You know, Courtney brings up an interesting point.

It seems as though, since we moved to WordPress, our readership is down. Like, way down.

What the fuck”s up with that?

Look. I’ll level with you. I know we don’t post as often as we should and I’d be lying if I said we were the best commenters around. But seriously.

Did we do something wrong? Are we not sexy enough for you? Are we talking too much about something y’all don’t like? Or not talking enough about something else y’all crave?

Help me/us out, here. Cuz we just don’t get it.

We obviously prefer the adjective “sexy” but beautiful will do.

Nickie, really… you’re too much.
According to her (at Learn To Fly), we are Truly Beautiful!
The “You Are Truly Beautiful” Award
Thanks Nickie!
The rules:
  • Find the seven most beautiful bloggers you follow.
  • Give them this award. Hopefully it’ll truly mean something to each and every one of them.
  • Don’t forget to tell them!
You’re all beautiful… I know it’s kind of a cheap way to do this (and we’ve done it before) but if we’re going by beauty here, inside and out, we definitely can’t choose just seven. So if you’re reading this and read at least somewhat regularly… consider yourself beautiful!

Like Courtney mentioned yesterday, we have a little surprise here at Sex and the Traveling Satchel for all you readers.

We’re hosting a giveaway!

We haven’t worked out the details yet, but both Courtney and I will be sending out a prize. That means there will be two winners – one will get a prize from me, the other a prize from Court. The prizes will, of course, be sex-related. And we’ll try to choose at least one male-friendly prize, so guys, don’t be shy!

It’s easy to enter our little giveaway. Just comment on this post (or, if you’re really not comfortable doing that, e-mail BOTH sexsatchel.christina AND sexsatchel.courtney [at] gmail [dot] com) telling us quickly about your most scandalous scandal.

We’ll choose the winners randomly using

The last day we’ll accept entries is January 18. You’ve got some time, but not forever – so dig up those scandalous memories and let’s hear (or read, whatever) ’em!


I’d like to thank the academy…
