Musica para fotografar...Music to photograph to...🤭

 

On Henna's playlist today...

 

 

 

Perhaps if the lens is kind to an old dinosaur there may be some interesting blogs upcoming... 😘

 

As always, be well...

Kinda figured that title was wacky enough, didn't even require translation into the Galecian language... 🤣

 

So, for anybody not up on the convo, we were talking bum plugs, folks. As an anal aficionado, both giving and receiving, and most definitely an Ol Gangsta, Henna was expounding on the opinion that the cute little plugs with the jeweled handles (yes, I have one of those too) are fun but perhaps not the best 'tool for da job' for long wear or energetic applications. Not from the size perspective, that's a personal preference, but because given sufficient assistance via vigorous exercise and/ or fervent pounding the cute little plug can migrate itself internally. Not a insurmountable situation, but avoidable utilizing the t base plug such as shown. To mitigate the unfortunate migration entirely I tend to reach for a lovely set of benwa balls used anally in situations that just require long wear or where serious exercise, either of the nilla or banging variety, is likely to occur.

Dor de dentes...toothache


So...uh… you ever have a bad tooth that hurts particularly intensely whenever you touch it but your tongue just keeps searching it out? No? You lucky duck, but shit, if I don't just do that all the time..with everything…


Actually remarked to someone today that I should just stay offline and out of Cage today… and yet… heeeerrrrre's Henna…


Apparently when the weirdest inhabitant of Henna-land is driving the bus, not only does my satire fall flat on its face, but I also totally misinterpret other people’s words too...not that I don't normally but is particularly bad atm….


Last blog entry was totally inane. I actually had quite the fun time writing it, but given feedback that pretty universally nobody got it, can't help but prattle on top of the prattle I already did. Therein lies the toothache, pretty sure the right answer is just to not worry about it, but fuck...there goes the tongue, right to the sore spot…


Sleep deprivation and too much stress combined appears to relieve me of the ability to communicate successfully. The blog really was just a silly bit about seeing some Monty-Python-esque brit humor I wasn't aware of. That was what I 'needed’ so badly. I was teasing another oddball comedy fan, about him not telling me of it, while making fun of myself because I'd not given him the opportunity to watch it together. Ditto with the 'others’, I'd bet money there were others here that caught the 'bringing meaning of life’ as a shameless take off of the Python movie title. I promise, I'm not upset with anybody because they didn't tell me that Eric Idle had written stageplays though, really.


And yes, I threw in some 'poor pitiful me’ prattle talking about watching it with my mum. That's why I blog… to get that stuff out, because if I don't, I just sit on it, like I've done for years. So yep...Henna's okay, I'm not upset with anyone, I didn't just figure out I'd been dumped or dumped someone, I haven't completely gone off my rocker (well… on second thought… eh, nevermind… ). I have a weird funnybone and on top of that I'm somewhat socially inept. Shouldn't be a surprise that my writing isn't always coherent. (Should that be Ever? ... isn't ever coherent... yes, that's prolly the correct phrasing… )


Anywho, things are still sucking in Henna-land. (See the Top Ten blog if you are interested, and dare to… pretty much still pertinent) I'm going back to hiding under me rock for a little while so I don't overthink nice, normal people comments as to meaning more than they do and/or misunderstand/ confuse communications completely. It's safer for humanity that way…


Be well,

 - Henna

Que hai...what about...


Well, my lovely Cage friends and family…


Henna has something wondrous to share with you. I thought I was knowledgeable, that I was experienced, 50 trips around the sun this year, a lifetime of searching out obscure truths but somehow, for some mysterious reason, the Universe didn't allow something so beautifully poignant to cross my path until I was mature enough to grasp and ready to accept it's wisdoms.


I'm saddened, in a way, I believe there is at least one other here, and likely more than just he, who was aware of the existence of something Henna needed so badly. I'm sorry I didn't get the opportunity to be shown something so perfect, so right, by him...but perhaps he was only biding his time. Maybe it wasn't that he didn't find me worthy, maybe he intended to, someday, he would have but I'd not yet given him the opportunity…


But looking at it another way, I'm grateful.


I've spoken previously about the woman in my life right now. She who talks to houseplants and occasionally wanders off in her pajamas, lover of all things language and travel, I'd probably talk of her more, but the oddest thing happens whenever I do, I always seem to get something in my eyes. It makes typing quite challenging, especially on the little keyboard on my phone that these old eyes require bifocals to manage. No time for that silliness now though, this is impotent….


I entered the house, after driving the small person to school. She was awake, I prefer not to leave her alone when the nurse isn't here, but usually she sleeps later. She called to me, I went to check on her. Never really know what I'll be walking into...Will she know me? Will she remember where she is? Is today going to be confused or frightened or angry? Today was good though. We sat together and she shared this spectacular magnificence with me...and it was good...it's long (an hour twenty) but I wish to share it's beauty with you, my friends. Please find it's splendor upon your personal viewing apparatus posthaste…may it bring as much meaning of life to you as it has me...


 

Be well (especially when having an emotion),

Que es…What are you?


I threatened to put this blog out yesterday after reading the fun blog about numerology and then doing a little investigation about my number. (Apparently I'm a 3, who knew! 😁)


Anywho, I don't generally read and/or use my horoscope, which is kinda silly because the blasted thing is usually spot on when I do trouble myself to look at it. My sign profile really 'feels’ accurate to me too, especially this one I happened on from Horoscope.com. I'm sure I must of heard or read most of this at some point in all these decades but reading it yesterday kind of surprised me really. No expert here by any means, but I was impressed by the amount of info on the site. I mean, shit, it's called Horoscope.com, it's just gotta be good, right?


It's pretty in depth and long (even by my standards!) so I just pulled a selection of the fascinating tidbits that reminded me of, well, me. Self-deprecating Henna is demanding that I add the caveat that I don't really think I'm all that, but what follows is what I'd like to identify myself as. Definitely fall short at times!


If it's interesting to you, please feel free to add your deets in the comments. I'm curious to see if others see themselves in their signs like I did.


Libra….starts with all kinds of stuff elements, and ruling planets and houses and such. I did know my birthstone is Sapphire but don't recall ever hearing that my flower is a ROSE! Crazy, right? I just wrote that silly blog about feeling like a wild rose...before reading this...freaky!


And these are some of the Libra (Libran? Librarian?) characteristics that jumped out at me...


Intelligent, kind...willing to put others before themselves...value harmony in all forms...adept at seeing all points of view...a rich inner life yet loves other people...happiest with a large group of friends, family, and coworkers...


...can often be "up in the clouds,"...amazing at making big plans, follow through can be tricky...


...believe that they're directing their own lives...take a big-picture approach in making that life look and feel the best it can be.


...in love, he or she falls hard, also recognizes that there's room for more than one grand love in his or her life...pragmatic about love, realizing that different relationships often have different seasons.


...appears self-confident to outsiders...might struggle with insecurity, especially as it relates to personal identity, which sometimes feels mutable. This sign's lifelong question is: "Who am I?" They may find their identity shifting based on where they are in their lives and who they're spending time with. [ed note...dayum, you've got to be kidding me, right? I just said all this crap!!!]


...fiercely attracted to intelligence...just as important as appearance when it comes to the partners...all about cerebral connections—role-playing, dirty talk, and games in the bedroom all serve to amp up their interest….


Libra's motto… "No person is an island."


Libra's everyday vibe is... "Let's just all get along."...compromise is key. Librans don't do well when anyone in their orbit isn't happy...adept at inviting other signs to see things from a different perspective...doesn't strong arm or use coercion, but rather relies on his or her communication prowess to help everyone see another side to a story.

...great at making everyone happy—but what good is that if Libras themselves don't feel fulfilled? While the Scales have a fine-tuned internal compass, they sometimes ignore what they want in favor of what makes everyone else happy—and this habit ends up backfiring in the long run.

….weaponized their imagination in the service of good [ed note: that just sounds so silly, I love it!]...can always come up with a new way of looking at an issue...blessed with boundless creativity. Even if they're working in a data-dominated field, their creativity shows them novel ways to see things.


Huh, apparently there may be a cheat code to managing the complicated mess that is Henna, and I've just been too stubborn to use it! Gonna go ahead and publish this one now I think. Meant to put it out yesterday but as usual things went a screwy, this time not on the nilla side of Life though. Going to apologize preemptively, I'm trying to be a little better at editing my spews (yes, thank you Fud, see Henna can listen!) so as to avoid amalgamations of shit, but the next blog might be a little raw. Don't say I didn't warn ya!


Be well,

- Henna

Vena deixame montar...C'mon Let Me Ride

 

Deep Thoughts By Henna Handey (No, I didn't just give out my actual last name, I'm 'borrowing' from SNL because a lot of what I write is about as inanely insightful.) is being preempted today by the zaniest inhabitant of Henna-Land.

 

So...uh...ya know that peculiar variety fetish I've mentioned previously?...it's probably most evident in my musical selections. I can, and do, enjoy a reeeeaaaalllly wide range of genres. (Except bluegrass, just can't take bloody bluegrass.) Just happened on to this little gem, it's a weird one, and definitely won't be on a regular rotation for me, but wicked fits bizarro mood Henna. Hehehehe. *Henna giggling away happily here* 

It's Skylar Grey ft. Eminem with a completely offbeat sorta cover/sample of Queen's Bicycle Race. (A worthy freaky song in its own right! Yay for Fat Bottomed Girls!) It's got Eminem in it so it seems a bit unnecessary to add a warning notice because it should be a given it's gonna be foul, but in case you aren't familiar with him, if you are at all easily offended do not ever listen to anything that has Eminem in it...just don't do it... 

 

 

Be weird, (and well, be well too)

Rosa salvaxe...wild rose


Much of the country is in the throes of nasty winter weather, and even down here it's been pretty chilly so I was surprised by this singular little beauty in the front yard of my new place. Maybe it's Life’s way of apologizing for being an ass recently.


I love roses...even have the ink to prove it and am considering adding more to cover some nasty scars. Putting a rose garden where ugly dirt has been. It's a bit hokey, but in a way I feel like a rose too, not a perfect, cultivated, well cared for beauty. But a wild rose…


From GardeningKnowHow.com…

Species or wild roses tend to thrive on neglect and are exceptionally hardy. These tough roses will grow in just about any soil conditions... they can die all the way down... and what comes up from the root will still be the same wonderful rose... it isn't hard to grow wild roses... will do best where they get plenty of sun... do not crowd them... need room to expand and grow into their natural states.


Be well,

- Henna
