Viewing the local antiquities

A reading from the Book of Johns 

Hosea 3:1-3:

1: And the LORD said to me, "Go again, love a woman who is beloved of a paramour and is an adulteress; even as the LORD loves the people of Israel, though they turn to other gods and love cakes of raisins."
2: So I bought her for fifteen shekels of silver and a homer and a lethech of barley.
3: And I said to her, "You must dwell as mine for many days; you shall not play the harlot, or belong to another man; so will I also be to you."

{Fifteen shekels of silver and a homer and a lethech of barley}

Insi' ou': 
After I've stepped into my shoes, as I'm struggling into my dark blue down jacket:

I look a question.

She twirls her finger around.

Later, out in the stinging snow, I realize that Yes, my jacket's lining is quilted.

Friday pussy blogging 
Lili of Eroticalee2 explains why she doesn't want to write about her pussy:

I probably wouldn't be much good at writing prose about my pussy. I think my pussy doesn't speak that language, if any it speaks the language of poetry, in a round about sort of way. Blunt words and proper grammar don't flow easily from her lyrical mouth, and I know she despises punctuation. She much prefers counting the rhythm of syllables, to dissecting a sentence for structure. She avoids naked quotations, preferring instead to underscore her own rambling unscripted thoughts without upper-casing expected laments or lower-casing her vital existence. A rhyme all her own, to flow as she pleases for no one's pleasure but her own. Petal Poetry.

But she did send us a picture:

Mon petit chou...

NEXT WEEK Hiromi of Panties, panties, panties. Coming soon: Red sneaker diaries. Antiquarians, if you'd like to guest post about your pussy, drop me a line.

LAST WEEK Eden Gardener. Also, she writes on writing about her pussy: "A deeper exercise than the results reveal, because I had to consider the relationship that I have with my body. Right there, see?"

THIS WEEK'S FRIDAY PUSSY BLOGGERS Pagan Moss, Prospero, Freya, DirtyTalkingGirl, Eden Gardener, and Monmouth. You too? Come on down!

The spectrum 


Cafe windows in the snow; traincar windows at dusk;
the kitchen windows on the second floor of Angel's brothel.

Shiny plastic wrappers for Thai durian candy.

A Swatch I owned once.

Highlighted words in Larouse.

The Yellow Pages at VAX.

Rubber waders in the table shower room.

A condom, sagging with a full load.

That stain.

African violets 

"Don't water it, here. Put it in a plate, then water the plate. And they need light to flower, but there's no light here."

"There is light downstairs! I will put it there."

Ceci n'est pas la FAQ


Thanks to the generosity of Dirty Talking Girl, Eden Gardener, and now Aphrodite Herself, there are now many more of you than there have been.

Some of you may have questions: Why is Viewing the Local Antiquities (VLA) what it is? Where does VLA take place? How this, how that, et cetera. A FAQ would answer such questions, but VLA does not need a FAQ: Each episode stands by itself, at least if you use your imagination—which statement alone should be enough to prove this work entirely the fiction it disclaims to be.

FAQ-like posts are indexed at right under Meta (scroll down. I know. I know). Subjects listed there include: morality, the blog's name, URL, a motivation for the design of the (wholly inadequate) index, and my choice to use the word "whore" for the heroines of these "adventures." The whores, of course, can speak for themselves, and often do.

In closing, let me issue this warning and plea: I am a regular poster, but not, perhaps, a regular as regular as you might like. However, the index gives you access to most past posts; these may be as sweet, as useful as the post that's momentarily on top. Please feel free to comment on all posts; all comments are read, and most are reciprocated. And, since "archives change when circumstances warrant," by commenting, even on posts from yesterday or long ago, you might help improve the antiquarian experience for everybody.

Semiotics 101 

What's a Technorati tag?

Friday Pussy Blogging, so far: Eden Gardener (last Friday) and DirtyTalkingGirl (the Friday before that).


There's enough data now to plot a trendline, and I confess I'm baffled by the results.

Why on earth is the all-too-often mundane blowjob the #1 answer to "What's your favorite service?" and the sublime kegel dead last?

How can this be?
