Just Call Me A Pimpstress….Come Join The Party!

I almost had heart failure and died today.

My sister and brother-in-law are in town for the holidays. After my hubby got back in town from work, we piled into my brother-in-law’s rental. While he was adjusting his seat, hubby and I got into the back. No sooner had I closed the door when hubby screamed, “What the hell was that?”

I glanced over to see what had freaked him out, just in time to see a hideous frog jumping his way along the floor in my direction. As many of you may recall from a prior post or two, I’m petrified of frogs with good reason. Yes, I admit it. The instant I knew what fell on hubby I screamed, “It’s a frog” and threw myself at the door to escape. Well, that was the plan, anyway. Instead, I bounced back, mostly because I forgot to pull on the door handle. Finally, on the second try, I was out and running down the driveway screaming and kind of laughing at the ridiculousness of it all. This time, I was grateful not to be alone. My sister and hubby also jumped out of the car laughing like loons and hoping for escape.

My brother-in-law was the hero who captured the frog, saved me from certain death, and released the beastie back into the wild where it belonged…far, far away from me.

Fortunately, if I had died, I would’ve passed on happy in the knowledge that I made a dream come true. Yep! For those of you who missed the news, my first novelette was officially published on Christmas evening. Click Here to read an excerpt and to buy. I’d also appreciate ‘Likes’ to my Kindle Author Page if you’re of a mind to stop by. Yes, the book is as racy as I tend to be… 😉 Look for the follow up to arrive in February!

As we head into the new year, I wanted to take a moment to share a few links to a few blogs that have made me laugh, made me think, made me healthier…and just made my day over the last year.

Blogs to Make you Laugh (satire/humor):
Katie at Sass & Balderdash– Sure, sometimes her humor is snarkriffic. It’s also very sharp and witty. She rarely pulls punches. LOVE her even when we don’t see eye to eye.
Don Of All Trades-Not all of his stuff is goofy, irreverent, and politically incorrect…but a lot of it is.
Austin from Modern Philosopher– It’s true, he actually started a huge uproar with Survivor when folks believed the satire (Yeah, cause there are zombies all over Maine, right? LOL!)
Jenny from More Cowbell– She is versatile and eclectic, but I think my ultimate faves are probably her Undie Chronicles. I mean, who else could write a blog that matches undies to political affiliations?

Blogs on Food, Recipes, Restaurant Recommendations:
Dishing With Clarissa– She’s got info on healthy food, GMOs, and great recipes. She also talks about her goal and journey toward Masterchef.
Phil from Regular Guy NYC– Between his restaurant/bar/speakeasy recommendations, his contests or his tongue in cheek tales of people watching, you’ve gotta love him.

Blogs on Self Esteem, Sexuality and Mind Healthy Habits:
August of #GirBoner fame– She battles for positive self image, embracing your sexuality and just pure fun.
Ande of Bring Back Desire– She gives tips on how to keep the fires burning in the bedroom…
Marcia Richards– She’s a beautiful, powerful woman who reminds us that perception and reality are often very different.

Blogs That Get You Thinking or Inspire:
Maria from Swimming To My 50’s– She reminds us that birthdays aren’t what make us who we are. We can still constantly learn, grow, and inspire.
Tammy from Witty Woman Ranting– She writes about living life to the fullest, owning our sexual power, family, overcoming fear…and everything in between.
Professor Taboo– He writes the existential, the sexual (usually kink), the academic….but most of all, he makes you think even as he shares his struggles with candor and a bone deep honesty you’ve got to admire.
Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride– She’s been through heck and back, yet her blog promotion parties are still the coolest around and she takes time to know her followers.

Blogs on Art & Poetry:
Ben from Expressions Of My Life– Even with his early onset Parkinsons he finds a way to smile and paint and write poetry. You’ve got to respect that kind of joie de vivre!
Jen from Ramblings From a Mum– A clever poet who shares both her words and her love of life.

I know I left out a few people…because truly, there are so many of you that inspire me and make my life a better place. What I’d like from you is for you to share someone whose blog truly helped, inspired or encouraged you sometime in the last year…then check out the ones your fellow peeps left behind. Let’s help some folks kick their New Year off right by giving them the attention they deserve! Heck, this may not be a Jenny Hansen Pimp and Promote or Susie’s Use Me, Abuse Me…. But it IS a great opportunity to show some love!

And while you’re at it… Why don’t you go ahead and answer the question the following song is asking…

    I’ll admit I did not listen to Ella. Why? Not because I don’t love both the song and her voice. I chose not to listen to it because one of my two yellow labs just left me in peace after umpty-ump head-over-tail flips for butt rubs, and I do not want back on her radar.

    I follow many of the blogs you mention. ALL of them are stellar. But, (YAY!) I picked up a few new ones to visit. You’re a cyber buddy who is so connected with my humor and mischief, I know I’ll love your selections.

    Can. Not. Wait to get to your book. [Urgh! I’m reading an ARC that’s not nearly as titillating as yours promises to be.]

    Yes. I bopped over to your author page and officially LIKED you. Wish there were a love button…in the internet icon sense of that phrase.

    There is a love button where it counts. IYKWIM. 😉

    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      LOL! I know what it’s like to enjoy a little peace. Not that we don’t absolutely love our doggies, but still!

      Thanks for hitting the like button. I’m sure your love button is getting plenty of attention these days, what with some of your fave blogs…IYKWIM. 😉

      So, who are you gonna share a little kinky love with this morning. I know I’m not the only one who gets around…YKWIM.

      Have I told you how much your comments & humor make my day?

      • Gloria Richard Author says:

        My heroine is getting all the action these days, Kitt.

        But, it’s fantastic what the adage “write what you know” and wildly horny creative imagination create when my fingers aren’t busy tap-tapping the keyboard.

        Other stellar blogs? Wildkat, if I didn’t know you better, I’d swear you were cyber stalking me. I see you in comments everywhere I go.

        Happy, happy 2014!

        • Kitt Crescendo says:

          Or maybe we just have the same incredibly awesome taste in Blog Buddies. 😉

          As for your heroine getting all the action… Well, you don’t always need a dance partner in “le petit mort” to make it count. 😀

          Happy New Year, my friend!

  2. Austin says:

    Thanks for the shout out even though you seem to be confusing my Survivor Maine post with my Walking Dead post. No worries, though, they both went viral and caused some trouble. I’ll try not to break the internet again! 🙂

  3. Professor Taboo says:

    Thank you Kitt for your gracious support; you’re spectacular! I’m so glad that I wasn’t there with you, your hubby, your sister and brother-in-law, AND that sinister frog who was CLEARLY out to get you and swallow you up for Xmas dinner!
    If I had been there, I most definitely would’ve been busting a gut in your honor! 😉

    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      Oh, we all busted a gut the second we were out of the vehicle. I know the utter ridiculousness of my reactions, but still can’t control them. Of course my past allergic reaction probably plays a big part in that response.

      So, whose blog are you going to share with us? I know whoever it is will be very, very interesting…. 😉

      • Professor Taboo says:

        Grrrr, Kitt! You KNOW I cannot pick just one blog! I have a…let’s say, appetite with a very “eclectic” palette. *glares in your direction*
        Hence, I must list several in 3 categories:

        G and PG-rated both with flair —
        Renee A. Schuls-Jacobson’s Blog – the wonderful lady who introduced us.
        Shift – Jessica’s poetry and writing about personally coming of age and out of a small world and into new worlds.
        Based On A True Story – Lindsey’s incredible journey from harsh family dysfunction, marriage then divorce, and thrust out into the real world alone!
        The Edgy to More Edgy Blogs —
        NeuroNotes and Victoria NeuroNotes – Victoria’s blogs that challenge via sound scientific models social, political, and religious convention.
        The Outer Collective – Le Clown’s, Madame Weebles’ and Jennie Saia’s brain child on controversial news topics by invited guest bloggers.
        A Clown On Fire – Naturally, I couldn’t leave out Le Clown’s entertaining blog!
        YOURS Kitt, of course!
        Love Times Infinity – Shannon’s polite blog about the wonders & fantastic benefits of the/our Polyamorous lifestyle!
        500 Questions Abouot God & Christianity – one of the most THOROUGH examinations and research into the very foundations (and problems) with biblical Christianity. Superb content!
        My Decadent-Darkside Blogs —
        husDom – a delightful, classy, respectful journey of a typical suburban husband’s venture into the delicious and cerebral world of BDSM. And then his wife’s blog…
        LittleKaninchen – another delightful, funny, respectful journey of a typical suburban wife’s venture into the delicious and cerebral world of BDSM from a woman’s perspective.

        And there it is Kitt. Apologies for the length, but you KNEW it would probably be that way, huh? 😉

  4. Austin says:

    Kitt, you have the link to the Survivor post correct, but you started talking about Zombies in Maine, and that was the Walking Dead post. I was confused.

    I’m going to share a link to a blog I follow called Debauchery Soup. It’s written by my pal Amanda, who was my first real “blog friend”. She showed me the ropes, gave me advice, and helped me figure out how to make sense of the blog world.

    I really enjoy her posts, and here is the link to her latest…

    Happy Holidays! Hope your Cowboys prevail tonight…

    There have been so many blogs that I have read since I started this wonderful journey that have made me feel all the emotions! I love The Verbal Spew Review
    http://verbalspew.wordpress.com/ because she’s funny and clever and I could spend an age trawling through her blog.
    Ben’s Bitter Blog is wonderfully sardonic
    http://bensbitterblog.wordpress.com/
    Princess ZooBoo’s blog is whimsical and just good fun http://zulekha71.wordpress.com/
    I also love Tara’s blog http://lovefromtara.com/tag/wordpress/
    because she’s insightful and charming.
    And finally, I love The Hook’s wry observations on his day to day work in hospitality http://youvebeenhooked.wordpress.com/
    So apologies for cheating and mentioning five, but these are great and wildly more popular than my blog. You’ll see why. I’ve seen so many more that deserve a mention, but http://basedonatruestorymemoirblog.wordpress.com/2013/10/21/based-on-a-true-story/ has already been mentioned and rightfully so, she’s awesome.
    And now I’m going to have fun having a peek at all the blogs others have mentioned. Thanks!

    You’re a pimpstress! Thanks for the shout out and for reading my ridiculous blog, Kitt. I really do appreciate it. Wow on the book, that’s awesome! I’m going to check it out with alacrity! Thanks for being a part of my 2013. It’s been fun finding this blogging stuff.

    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      My pleasure, Don! I’ve truly enjoyed the friends I’ve made here…and between my new book & New Year, I figured a blog share party was a great way to celebrate with all my badass, supportive friends. 🙂

  7. bensbitterblog says:

    I read a ton, but one of my fav’s Sass and Balderdash has already been mentioned. Two more are Olivethepeople.com – she can go super funny with gifs or lists or she can teach life lessons with the best of them.

    Another fav which I feel is criminally under read is Anchors and Freedom.com. She is a mid 20 year old who writes an column for her hometown paper but could write for a much bigger one. She is wonderfully funny, honest and inspiring. BTW, I couldn’t figure out how to link, but the one is anchorsandfreedom.wordpress.com.

  8. Aussa Lorens says:

    Oh, I would have DIED if there were a frog in the same car as me! Pretty much any wild animal in the confines of a motor vehicle is a big fat HELL NO. There was a mouse A FREAKING MOUSE under my pillow one night– I nearly shit my pants and it was my boyfriend who had heart failure when I screamed and then flew across the room like a woman possessed. *shudders* Thanks for bringing up such great memories….
    Oh– and great list! I regularly stalk quite a few of these lovelies 🙂

    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      Glad to know I’m not alone! As for the mouse? Yikes… Totally no bueno.

      Looks like you have great taste in the blogs you follow. Feel free to share a link here of someone else maybe not yet mentioned that you feel deserves some attention. 🙂 Thanks for stopping! Happy New Year!

  9. Jenny Hansen says:

    I am so late to this party!! And it looks like so much fun. I will be back!!! But I wanted to pop in and say THANK YOU for linking to my post on Panties and Politics. I had so much fun writing that thing. And now I’m off to make sure I’ve liked your author page!

    I will be back to add some links and take some others. Plus I wanted to tell you again, I am so proud of you!! This book will go places. 🙂

  10. brickhousechick says:

    Just getting back from another family Christmas celebration away and getting caught up on the posts! What an awesome thing for you to do listing bloggers – I am flattered that you included me on your list! I can’t wait to check out some of the other bloggers.

    You and your frogs. Hee,hee. I would have done the same. One time I had a wasp inside my car while I was driving and it’s a miracle that I’m still here. 🙂

    My hubby started your book, he wants us to read it together! I know what we’ll be doing the 1st of the year!! 🙂 ¡Feliz Año Nuevo Kitt!

    • Kitt Crescendo says:

      You were so popular you got a shout out twice! Once from me, once from Susie! But that’s just because you’re cooler than the other side of the pillow. 🙂

      As for the book…Yay, you! I can’t tell you the grin that comment put on my face. You’ll definitely be bringing in the New Year, right! Happy New Year, my friend!
