She Says: First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage…

Dear Troubled with Trying. You shouldn’t have gotten married… let me rephrase that… you shouldn’t have gotten married to the man that you married. I mean, how stupid can you be? I’m sorry to sound harsh but you husband totally tricked you into marrying him. You have been Fifty Shades of manipulated. He got you right where he wanted you and now it is too late to go back.

Question of the Week: Who Did I Marry?

Dear Robyn and Skippy, My husband and I have been married for about a year now and I thought it was high time to bring up trying to have kids. You see, we dated for about five years before we got married.  I told him I wouldn’t marry him until he agreed to have kids with me, he was never too keen on the subject.  We finally had the “make it or break it” talk and he agreed to have … Continue reading →

She Says Lessons Learned the Hard Way: The Stereotype Was True

And now I bring you some very personal lessons I have had to learn. Let me begin by saying that I don’t really believe in stereotyping.  Not all stereotypes are true.  I decided to do a bit of research before I began my stories to see what our lovely interwebz brought up as examples of stereotypes. Most of it is raciest and sexiest and just plain insulting. Here are some of the things I found and what I think of … Continue reading →

Robyn’s Rant: Fifty Shades of Effed Up


I saw the movie. I did.  I sat through all 125 minutes of it, too.  I surprised myself by not leaving, but I was determined.  I have to admit that I still don’t quite get the appeal.  It was poorly written, had terrible dialogue, and had much less sex appeal than a decent porno.  I will say this though: To everyone who thinks it is about rape, you’ve got it all wrong.  There was nothing in that movie that wasn’t … Continue reading →

Unsolicited Advice She Says: It’s Grey, Not Black and White

Let it be known: As I write this post I have not seen the movie, nor did I read the book. Well, that is not entirely true. I tried to read the book. A quick story: I had never heard of Fifty Shades of Grey until my hairdresser, and friend, told me about it. I used to work at the salon, I was getting my hair done at one day, and all the girls were buzzing about this book. “What … Continue reading →
