About Burquette


"Mystery bores me. It chores me. I know what happens and so do you. It's the machinations that wheel us there that aggravate, perplex, interest, and astound me. There are many things to think of. There is much story.”

Topic: One year anniversary of Trump
Posted: 28 Nov 2017 10:37

It looks like congress, in spite of Trump, passed a spending increase for the National Institutes of Health, where much science research is funded. Under W. Bush that was cut heavily and we felt it. Under Obama, it never got easier to secure grant funding. So, it's a plus for my profession.

Outside of that, I think the tone of the country is ruder. When the president says something, no matter who it is, it lends legitimacy to that topic. Sadly, the president is a name-caller with a penchant for insults. Mokey-see, monkey-do in far too many cases.

I think that, for once, the Democrats are energized. Many Republicans hated Obama, which energized the Republican party to make changes. Not good changes, in my opinion, but they at least responded. Hopefully we'll see a response on the left, too.

This isn't part of the question, but I really don't think that Democrats should be courting the Trump vote. Only about 1/3 of overall voters approve of him; however, among his people who did vote for him, over 90% still support him. Screw that lot. What Democrats need to do, and seem to be doing, is working on voter turn-out. That's the answer in my opinion: get more people who agree with you to vote; don't try to convince people who vehemently disagree with you to come around to your way of thinking.

Topic: How much do you love to read and how often?
Posted: 20 Nov 2017 06:38

I LOVE reading. However, I also love writing and I can't do both close together. I'll start stealing turns of phrase and sometimes plot points without even meaning to.

This weekend we had a power outage. I couldn't grocery shop so I started re-reading a Harry Potter book. In two paragraphs I'm admiring craft; in four I'm immersed in story. Bliss!

Topic: #MeToo on Lush
Posted: 20 Nov 2017 06:35

No details, but #MeToo. It's affected me my whole life, both from my own experience and those of minors I used to work with. The trauma caught up with me and illness meant I couldn't squash it down anymore.

On a positive note, I learned a hell of a lot about fun (and friendship) from Lush and some of the people on here, that was previously inaccessible to me, and has meant I've got a more balanced view of what is and isn't "okay". <img src="/forum/images/emoticons/love10.gif" alt="love10">

Topic: do you believe in God?
Posted: 17 Nov 2017 09:17


Though not necessarily in the sense of an all-knowing, all-seeing anthropomorphized character. More like, creative energy without consciousness.

When I can muster up the energy to believe in anything.

Topic: #MeToo on Lush
Posted: 10 Nov 2017 12:48


I'm late to the thread, to the movement and everything. I don't talk about it, I didn't join the Facebook ones. And I'd like to thank for this thread, and to thank all the amazing and brave people who shared their stories. For way too long, I didn't even think I had suffered it, seeing the things I've been through as much smaller than others' experiences, so they couldn't even compare. But I never forgot, it affected me, it does affect me, and it's hard to think of... Now I know, I'm another number on this list. It takes courage to talk about... I don't have it, yet, and I don't know if I ever will. So, it's clear to me how much courage it must have taken from all of you who own and share your experiences. You really are strong.

I don't make personal posts in forums, but this time, even late, I knew I had to add myself to this list, I've been there too. It's never just those moments, they linger, one way or another. And there's fear, the fear is too "natural".

You're never late. Ellen Page just shared her story today. So did Aly Raisman.

Share as much as you are comfortable... you're pushing your own personal comfort level and that is BRAVE.

Topic: Harvey Weinstein
Posted: 10 Nov 2017 12:45

Hush money motivated a lot of them. Look at the number of victims he paid off. There could be even more than that who knew about it and were paid to keep quiet. How anyone could accept his filthy money is beyond me. I am NOT victim blaming. Try to get that into your head before you decide to Do that dance with me again.

I try and I try... but just because you say it isn't victim blaming, doesn't mean it isn't.

You're judging victims. Here's what I read, when I read your post: they were motivated by filthy money to keep their mouth's closed, thus endangering other women. It's not what you would do. You'd do something more honorable.

Maybe that's not what you mean to say, but that's how it reads. And that just lays more guilt on the least guilty person in this situation.

It's like me saying: I doubt he has the intelligence to deal with the situation. I'm not calling him stupid, though.

Recommended Read Virgin. Whore. Mother. Queen: The Whore.

It was the evening before Flora's wedding and she had been cloistered for six days. She was the one who insisted she follow the traditions of her mother: no one would see her until the day of her wedding and then, only shrouded until her husband came to her in the wedding chamber. It meant she didn't need to meet the Veilanders when they came nor respond to Prince Julian's magnetism until he...

I’m good at my job. That’s what got me into trouble. The New York State Library found a partial copy of William Blake's First Book of Urizen , and they called a team of experts to authenticate it. I was one of those experts and I was the only one to identify it as a clever fake. It turns out, I was right. That’s what made me famous in the world of rare book antiquities. Six months later,...

When Flora was fifteen, her father, the king, lost half of his weight. When she was sixteen, he couldn't rise from the bed. That's when the suitors started to arrive. Men from every part of the world. Old men and young men. Men who were royal and men who claimed to be. Flora watched yet another bannered procession leaving the palace from her bedroom window. She felt a soft hand on her...

The mare reared and hovered, her eyes so wide that the whites shone all the way around. Foam stood out on her flanks. When, finally, she let gravity win, she turned to shield her foal from the eyes of the men that stood on the other side of the fence. They were so distracted by the spectacle, they didn't see Sally until she stepped between them on the fence line. When she spoke, her voice...

Editor's Pick Fifteen Shopping Days 'Till Christmas

Santa's hand slipped up the inside of my thigh. He had taken off his wooly mittens so he could caress the skin; my pussy pulsed into a low throb. But, just before he reached the apex--and with an enormous effort on my part--I moved a step away. I pretended to straighten an ornament on the fake Christmas tree. "Knock it off, Saint Nick," I said in a low, indulgent tone. "We still have four...

After a night of the kinkiest sex I had ever had and a weekend to think about it, I was relieved to go back to work on Monday.

He couldn't move around well; he was on crutches and his cast over his broken leg was huge. I left him alone to...
