When I drink a little too much I get drunk and drank mixed up.

Ha ha... though I don't think this has the same phonological issues that sang and sung has.

What about the past tense of to speed?

Would you say 'I speeded up' or I sped up'?

Topic the challenge of a seduction story
Posted 04 Aug 2016 02:35


i am new to the site and have been enjoying the stories very much--thank you all for the time and creativity that you put into your writing, and for sharing it with us!

i am tinkering with the idea of writing a seduction story. what do you think is the more difficult challenge: writing form the point of view of the seducer, or the one being seduced? the plot is a different challenge, of course, tyring to do something original yet believable.

any examples you'd like to share? thank you in advance, and please keep writing!

I would say.

1. Decide on a scenario
2. Take it slowly, but keep the reader interested
3. Be naughty - make the relationship risky

Here's one of mine, which you might find inspirational!

Good luck and happy writing

I've noticed (not just on Lush) that some people get into a pickle over irregular verbs.

I read recently, where so and so sung at someone's wedding, when it should have been 'sang' at their wedding. Would anyone else have used sung, even though it's the past participle?

Another one is dived and dove. Which do you prefer?

Are there any irregular verbs that get your knickers in a twist?

I am giving away two Platinum memberships in celebration of the creation of....well, Platinum memberships, a new way to support the site. Like it or not, server farms are not free.

This runs from posting date until 30 August 2016 5:00 Pacific (GMT -8). Winners will be gifted their membership 2 September 2016.

Since the Olympics are just starting, please say "IN" and give the total predicted GOLD medals taken home by one of the following nations: China, Russia, GBR, U.S.A., or Canada. The closest match to the two highest nations will be the winners.

Basic rules:

a) My decision is final. Don't b*tch about it.

b) Non-site supporters may have ONE (1) entry.

c) If you are a BRONZE member, you may have TWO (2) entries. If you are a SILVER member, you may have THREE (3) entries. If you are a GOLD member, you may have FOUR (4) entries.

d) Rules are subject to change. See a).

e) You may not edit your answer in any way after posting. Edits will cause your entry or entries to be wholesale disregarded.

Thank you for supporting Lush Stories.

So, to be clear, does four entries mean four separate posts with one country per post, or can I put four countries on one post?

Thank you


Topic Things you don't understand even when they're explained to you.

Have you ever gotten into a conversation with some one who for whatever reason your opinions differed enough to where it became a loud fight? That's "Positive Feedback." Each one excites the other more and the volume increases.

But if you respond with calming and non-argumentive responses it calms the situation. That's "Negative Feedback." You won't allow the volume of the argument to increase.

If you keep pumping on a swing and the swing arches higher each time, that's "Positive Feedback." Positive feedback so are additive so the volume, anger, swing, whatever, goes up. That squeal is you doing a 360 degree flip on the swing or a screaming fight that tears a vocal cord.

Does that help? If not please ask questions. It always helps to visualize the examples. Feel yourself pumping that swing and think about the amplified signal going back to the microphone that amplifies it again again sending it out to return again just like with each push you make and you swing higher until you go all the way around and you squeal. That's exactly what happens which is why they always ask you to turn your radio down or off. It always overloads with feedback. Let me know if I helped you, please.

I'm and old computer design engineer and I need to keep my mind working by helping explain technical things that have always come easy to me. I taught engineering for 10 of my career years the rest designing military weapons systems and telecommunications switching networks. I've been retired for 10 years and I'm recently widowed after 44 years. I gave 7 kids, 17 grand kids from 8 to 36 and 3 great grand kids the latest only 7 weeks old. He is absolutely gorgeous.

To be brutally honest, I don't get that explanation. Maybe it makes sense but I haven't really understood any of the explanations on this yet - not really understood.

I think the problem is that everyone is looking for analogies, and I want to know like actually what is the explanation, technically. If that means it's not in layman's terms then I'll just have to work it out.

Topic 'American English'
Posted 25 Jul 2016 13:19

Here at LUSH, there are two very noticeable UK/US usage variations which almost always toss me out of a story, usually with a laugh.

knickers -- panties
arse -- ass

What I find interesting is the large number of differences in transportation related items: boot/trunk, motorway/highway, car park/parking lot and on and on.

Still, it's all proof that English remains an ever evolving language. As dem frogs are always saying, Vive la difference.


Arse is British but it's very much a man's word. We tend to say bum!

i believe a lot of that has to do with the fact that our pop culture is more heavily intangled with yours. our music, movies and tv shows are quite popular there so it would make sense that you all understand more of our 'speak'.

Yes, possibly. A reasonable theory

Topic How do I stop slugs eating my lupins?
Posted 20 Jul 2016 12:12

We've used the nematodes. They are expensive, but they're easy to store (in the fridge in the container) until the next treatment, and easy to apply (with a watering can). They made a huge difference, and recommend it to our friends. sunny

Edit: You can also go out in the evening after rain, or when you've watered, and collect them. I put them in the green bin, so they can nom away to their hearts' content until they go to the composting place. Death comes to us all, but at least they go happy.

Ah thank you. The thing is, I hardly ever see the slugs, but I can plant lupins and withing two days they're munched to nothing! crybaby I'm deffo goona try them. I assume the local garden centre will sell them

To be honest, if your garden is (like mine) a very slug and snail infested place because of the orientation and soil make up then I think that the answer is to not grow lupins or hostas or anything else that they will eat and then you're home and dry.

My garden gets no sun at all for 6 months of the year but is a sun trap in summer. This is caused by the height of the surrounding buildings and there's nothing I can do to stop my garden being shady from equinox to equinox. Combine this with a very heavy soil and the whole place is nirvana for gastropods. For that reason I gave up planting things that they really like and leave them instead with things like Euonymus and Sarcococca which they can't be bothered to chew through :)

I love lupins, so not giving up... yet. Unless the Scouse snails are a bit more tenacious than regular ones! f-hihi

Topic How do I stop slugs eating my lupins?
Posted 19 Jul 2016 12:41

Usually they like wet/humid places, remove those places and trim your grass that surrounds your flowers. I've got problems with them as they ate my strawberries, there was nothing that I've could do except make way for the sun to 'shower' the ground (I dislike using pesticides and artificial means). Also, they attacked few vegetables (cabbage) so I've removed any and every green plan (other that vegetable) from that area (i.e. weeds). From what I know, snails reproduce themselves by laying eggs in ground when it rains and in the humid season. Slugs and snails need humidity as they need humidity for them to breath (something similar to how worms work).

I'm not sure but, you can try to throw some salt or ash around the area (make a circle around the flower bed) ?

Good luck!

Okay, Thank you! x

Sluggo is an effective slug and snail killing bait that can be used around pets and wildlife. Use Sluggo for organic gardening to control slugs and snails in vegetables and ornamentals. You can also use chewing tobacco, but Some dogs like chewing tobacco, and chewing tobacco does not like dogs!

I don't want to kill them, hence no pellets Read it

Topic Cops out of control - part 2
Posted 09 Jul 2016 00:39

As someone who is on this side of the Atlantic, looking at the TV images and listening to the news reports, I come to two conclusions. I could go into detail, but I haven't got time. So I shall distil my thoughts thus:

1. There is a deep seated problem within some of the USA, which relates to skin tone and the status of African Americans. This expresses itself with the hostility and intemperance of their cops. How they solve this, I don't know. It's only in my nan's life time that black people had to give up their seat on a bus to a white person. That's so shockingly fucked up, that I don't even have the vocabulary to express my anger. I don't think we can expect that in that short time, the USA can be where it wants or needs to be.

2. The USA need to sort out their gun culture. They really do. This isn't a dig or a political swipe, it's just a common sense perspective from this side of the pond. I don't have a gun, I don't know anyone who has a gun, and I don't know anyone who knows anyone who has a gun. I'm sure a lot of Americans can say the same thing, but I understand about 26% of the population in America own a firearm. That's just not right.

My 2 cents

Topic Britain to have another female Prime Minister
Posted 08 Jul 2016 10:57

There are many, many, maaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaany ways to criticize Thatcher. From marginalizing unions, initiating the new kind of anti-european british nationalism that has today led to Brexit and insane levels of centralization of power. But are you really going with "Britain needs more coal"? An industry that was outdated and unsafe even in the middle of the last century? The way Thatcher handled its downfall was pretty horrific, stocking up on riot gear and sacrificing the workers for the sake of a more liberal labour market, but the downfall of coal was inevitable. There is no alternative in the preservation of coal mining in a G5 economy...

I mean, except when you're Germany and turning off nuclear power plants to restart coal power plants for environmental reasons...

I was born around the time Thatcher resigned so can only go on what my Mum has told me, which is that all of the problems in society can be traced back to Thatcher's policies. A woman with no sense of humour, who was totally detached from the reality of every day people and didn't understand the concept of civic participation.

Topic Britain to have another female Prime Minister
Posted 07 Jul 2016 11:47

An impetus for the americans? I think you far overestimate your political influence over the colonies...

But it is interesting, first because you guys won't get Boris Johnson or Michael Gove ( and thank the sweet lord for that ), but mostly because that would put women in charge of two of the three foremost european powers. My personal bet is on Theresa May. Leadsom would be a weaker bet, which makes sense politically if the conservatives wanted to draw the Brexit thing out in time, but it doesn't seem like things are taking this direction. I can easily see Theresa May as PM with Leadsom in charge of negociations with the EU though...

Still, is it just me, or do you guys have a type for your female Prime Ministers? The cold-hearted, merciless kind. I mean, Theresa May or Andrea Leadsom after Thatcher?

To be fair, Leadsom has her nickname at the ready. "The Lead Lady" will be a thing.

Yup! We're taking over!
