Erica Scott: Life, Love and Spanking

Ruminations, opinionated observations, darkly humorous blathering and the occasional rant from an outspoken spanko and unapologetic attention wh–, um, hog.

Odds and ends

Figured I’d better post something so people didn’t think I’d evaporated. Actually have been sick since Saturday. Really weird illness — slammed into me like a train on Saturday morning. I woke up at John’s and felt funny, but thought I’d be OK once I got up and showered. But I didn’t. And by the time we tried to go to lunch, I felt like I was going to pass out. The glands in my neck were very tender, it hurt to swallow, and I ached all over. I went back to the car and John got us some food to go, and then we went home, where I crawled back into bed. Woke up at 4:30 with a temp of 102, and managed to choke down three bites of food so I could take some Advil. Then I went back to sleep until 8:00.

Poor John. We didn’t go out for dinner or for Sunday brunch, and he basically hung out in his house all weekend while I curled up in a ball in his bed and alternately shivered and sweat. I felt just horrible, knowing I was exposing him to something or another. If I’d gotten these symptoms just a day earlier, I would have stayed home. But he insisted that I stay. He was very sweet. On Sunday morning, I needed to take Advil for the fever and pain, but I can’t take that on an empty stomach. However, I couldn’t stand to eat anything. He was going out to get his groceries, so I asked him to please buy me some milk. He brought home a quart of nonfat, plus a roll with nuts and raisins that he knew I liked. I was able to eat that and have a glass of milk, and take the meds. It’s the little things. πŸ™‚

Yesterday, back home, I still had a fever and swollen glands, so I decided to go to my HMO to rule out a bacterial infection. Turns out it’s viral, so no antibiotics. I just have to wait it out. So I’m home, taking it easy. Today is the first day I’m fever-free, so I must be getting better.

So anyway, while all this nonsense was happening, history was being made. I am very, very proud of our Supreme Court. Social media have certainly been interesting the past few days; I’ve seen a lot of heartening support, and a fair amount of sad and despicable dissent as well. As I mentioned in a Facebook post, if I see the phrase “The Bible wrote of Adam and Eve, not Adam and STEVE,” I’m going to projectile vomit. And don’t think I won’t. I came close to it a couple of times this past weekend. But, naysayers and haters aside, I’m happy for our new equality under the law. As for the holy rollers who threatened to set themselves on fire in protest, all I can say is “Goody! S’mores for everyone!”

In other news, a video I shot for Sarah Gregory is now available. It’s called “The Naughty Wife” and you can read about it here. I giggled at the first picture, where I come in see that my “hubby” John Osborne has spread implements all over the bed, because I remembered my reaction was to blurt, “What the fuck is all this??”

However, may I grumble just a bit? I promise I’ll (try to) keep it brief. One of the pictures from this video has been making the Tumblr rounds, and what’s the caption? “Mature wife spanking by husband at Sarah Gregory Spanking.” Really? Really?? You just had to throw that “m” word in there, huh? You couldn’t just say “naughty wife” or “misbehaving wife.” Also… I looked at a bunch of the other video stills. In every one I saw, the performers were identified by name. Why do John O. and I just get the generic “mature wife” and “husband”? What are we, chopped liver?

OK, done grumbling.

Asshats. All right, all right, now I’m done.

And finally, I’d like to give a shout-out to a newly published spanking erotica book. The author, Alexis Alvarez, contacted me originally as a blog fan, and then she asked if I would be willing to copy-edit a few short stories for her, which I did. Then she approached me with her first full-length novel, Return. She’d already had it worked on by a content editor, but she wanted a final copy-edit/proofread on it. This was a fun job! I really enjoyed her book as I worked on it; it’s a hot story, it’s clever and original, and her heroine Ava is no pushover — she’s feisty, she can be a bit cranky, and she’s full of fire and passion. Oh, and the male protagonist ain’t bad either. Anyway, if you’d like to add a well written and yummy story to your BDSM erotica collection, check it out here. She has listed me as the editor, which I think was incredibly generous of her. Because she’s not affiliated with any of the kink book publishers (yet!), I thought a little extra publicity was in order. πŸ™‚

I think I’m caught up now. I’ve managed to sit upright for a few hours now, but now I’m feeling the need to be horizontal once again. Later.

  1. Erica, I am pleased that you are feeling better, after your recent illness. As for that M word that you DO NOT appreciate, I like the taste of CHOPPED LIVER, my Yiddishe friend that makes you deliciously kosher to eat. By the way how far are you away from those forest fires in California. Yes, I am also pleased about the Supreme Courts decision on OBama Care, and Same Sex marriage.

  5. Six and I are on the same wavelength. I love chopped liver too, and I was also wondering how close the fires are to you. We are having constant rain here, and as a result the grass is growing an inch a day, with no hope of mowing because of the wet.

    Sorry to hear you are ill. Those viral infections can be nasty. Hope John didn’t catch whatever it is.

    Hugs,
    Hermione

  8. Hermione — that was my biggest worry. I can handle being sick; he can’t, right now. Oh, please send us your rain! We are in such a godawful drought here in CA.

    Jay — I’m starting to think about the gym again, which is a good sign. But maybe not today…

    Mouse — I’m very happy about the SC! Not to worry, the farthest I’ve gone away from home lately is out to the mailbox.
