My artificial love story. Would you still love your significant other if you wake up to find that they are a machine?
It’s so nice when he’s in a cuddly mood. No teeth being waved threateningly, no trying to bully you with his size – just a big, friendly, happy chestnut teddy bear on the other end of the lead rope. We took the long way out of the stable this morning, round the outside and between […]
Radhika (Ra-dee-kaa) lives on the edge of complete control over her world with full knowledge of what she wants, and in a microsecond completely yielding that control when that act promises immense pleasure. She is known in the corporate boardrooms only for her first part, her wheeling and dealing skills from her MBA training that […]
CHERYL Tweedy fans have expressed concern about the singer after she appeared in a new image on dumps. The former Girls Aloud star, 35, was in front of a wooden soldier before Christmas, but could not raise a smile.

As this semester wraps up, there is one thing that’s on my mind and that I’m specifically looking forward to. Going home! There are many different things I love about being home but there are three specifics that immediately come to mind. My dog. We got him a year ago and he has changed all […]
The Donald went to the G20 meeting showing he meant business. He went to the mattresses. You can not go to negotiate with the world’s leading economy, China, without a bargaining chip. That chip is Huawei’s chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou. Huawei is the largest telecommunications equipment manufacturer in the world, having overtaken Ericsson in […]
Christmas time was busy as usual is the south of market area of The City. The juke box hotel jutted up above the rich and the poor like it has since the year of the last big quake. Apparently it barely shimmered, survived without a scratch unlike the Marina District, and had been host to […]
“I do not apologize for saying this truth, THAT condemnation in the name of God by the Christian church is the epitome of what we could characterize as the root of evil…the OPPOSITE of ‘good’. And it recently came to my knowledge that one of the most respected authors in history, Mark Twain himself, understood this hypocrisy of the church as well…Unbeknownst to me until recently, Twain had come to the same awareness, and was expressing a lot of the same things I have been writing about on this topic over the last several years. (This is encouraging as it shows many are waking up to these institutionalized lies)”
Every time I crossed the courtyard, walked past the well in the corner and slipped out of the baby blue gate nestled into the high brick wall that surrounded my Chadian host family’s house, I instantly became nasara. It’s a Ngambay word that means both “foreigner” and “white person” at the same time. A little pack of children would follow me down the red-dirt street, chanting “nah-sa-rah, nah-sa-rah” and laughing.
“You sure you want to do this?” my brother said as he let me in the back of the bar he owned. “There can be some pretty rough guys.” “That’s exactly what I want.” I knelt down and blew him right there, even as we heard his employees out in the bar getting things ready to […]
This was not the sort of club I’d been imagining when my older brother Ben told me he was taking me out for my 21st. Clubs weren’t really even my thing, to be honest. He was a jock and the more gregarious and outgoing of us, scoring enough pussy for ten brothers. I was a […]
So this evening was a pretty dam good time if I don’t say so myself (Which I do). Well hello, hello. It is almost as much of a pleasure reliving this event with you as it was to live to throw it the first time. So after getting ready I was of courses, running late. […]
<< previous chapter || next chapter >> Su Yan sighed. It was already too late now. He would just look at the suggestions and see if there was anything he could use for editing the scene. After all, the system hadn’t said that there was some limit to the number of edits he could make. […]
