On Sheena's List of Next Husbands.
No regrets or late night hauntings over this tough decision: The Slow Roasted Carolina Rabbit swiss chard and applewood smoked bacon ravioli, candied garlic jus ... 24.95The bunny melted in my mouth. Like a moist gamey turkey, perfect with the Jovino Oregon Pinot Noir recommended and accepted. Slightly bitter sauteed greens, al dente baconish ravioli.
But that ain't nothing compared to breakfast this morning... God Bless America.
And associated hangers-on in categories not graced by moi.
Mix up your choice of canned meat and Miracle Whip. Mayonnaise can be used in emergency situations. Ensure chopped pickles and canned olives touch everything so the sour-vile tinny taste reminds everyone that this is NOT a fun day.
Spread the meat mixture on the crustless slightly squashed down bread.
After a restless night on a borrowed bed, get up and have a pot of coffee. Have a late breakfast of whatever wasn't polished off at 2am when everyone was antsy and upset. Find the least dull knife in the sink and wash it off. Slice the unwrapped sandwich rolls into 1/2" or so pinwheel slices. Try to line them up on the trays so they look pretty. Despite how you feel.
Admit the black olive ones look the nicest, even if you feel like you are being stared at. Wipe your pickle smelling hands on someone's coat when you pretend to console them with a hug. Finish your own crying in the shower when no body can see you.
Get dressed. Put on warm stupid coloured striped socks under the navy pantsuit you'll wear when you read the verse during the service. Walk down the street with your kid brother at your side not talking because your face will freeze if you do.
Say Good bye.
And stuff your face when it's all over with.
so totally and completely ripped off from Sooey. But only after she so totally and completely ripped off my Taser Ho story.
Watch your back, Mary Kay.
On the coffee table, Shafman spreads out Taser's C2 "personal protector" weapons that the company is marketing to the public. It doesn't take long before the women are lined up in the hallway, whooping as they take turns blasting at a metallic target.
"C'mon!" she says. "Give it a shot."
Shafman isn't an employee for Scottsdale, Arizona-based Taser International. She's an independent entrepreneur who's been selling Tasers the way her mother's generation sold plastic food storage containers.
As a single woman who lives alone, Shafman says she's the perfect pitchwoman for Taser as it makes a renewed push to sell weapons to families.
The company agrees. Taser officials like Shafman's homespun sales tactics so much that they plan to build a living room set at the International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and have Shafman hold a Taser party for buyers and dealers. The CES, which runs from January 7-10, is the world's largest tech trade show.
Taser doesn't expect its dealers to start imitating Shafman. But spokesman Steve Tuttle says company officials think people can learn from her approach.
"When I talk about Taser, I come across as a salesman," Tuttle says. "When you see her it comes across as very real."
Shafman, a freelance construction consultant, says she always had a natural interest in self defense products. She loved the idea of the Taser, which would allow her to stop an attacker from across the room without getting physical.
She tried moonlighting as a door-to-door Taser saleswoman. But years of negative press about Taser made it tough.
"I got tired of being pushed out of people's offices," she says. "Nobody wants to purchase a product that they think is lethal or going to kill somebody."
A lot of people, especially women, need time to get comfortable with a unique product like Taser before they'll consider buying one, Shafman says.
So the Taser party was born.

Sheena and her beloved family lost their matriarch this week. Good bye my sweet crazy baba. Where else would we have learned in our preschool years to swallow whole raw bacon? And never put pennies in our mouths because Indians scratched their bums with them? And to receive the grace of God by chugging Grape Koolaid and Ginger Ale?
Follow me as we stumble down the Magnificent Mile...
The fitting rooms in Victoria's Secret have video screens built into the mirrors. Sheena thinks that it is so women will think the ass on the screen is theirs in that thong and buy it.
