Nips, Lips, Hips, ‘N Fingertips

{February 19, 2006}   Why the provacative title?

You might be asking.

Well, first and furmost, I figure if you can’t get past the word nips, it’s for the best. If you’re offended by the word or my use of it, you will most likely be offended by something I blog. IMHO, nips is a pretty innocent way of referring to nipples. But my BIL was in a band called Aureole, a name which I loved, so I’m probably not your run-of-the-mill Mommy Blogger.

And besides, I’ve gotten so good at dis-ap-pointing teenage boys on the internet, I thought I’d keep it up (pun intended- and note that what I have in boldface type I intend to hyperlink someday when my partner isn’t too busy watching our monkey boys so I can write, in other words when they are sleeping and the stars are aligned just so…which, by my most recent calculations will be in about 2 years– true fans will wait).

Alas, here’s a brief synopsis of the meaning behind the title as I see it:

Nips = As in NIPPLES, Breastfeeding, Lactivism, Nursing In Public (NIP)

Lips = Being outspoken, Oral Sex, Orating, Ranting, Spoken Word, and Uppityness 

Hips = Birthing, Curves, Fat, and Femininity

Fingertips = Blogging, Bodywork & Massage, Sewing (Yes me, sewing!)

BTW, you should know now that: A) BTW stands for by the way, B) I alphabetize everything, C) because I have mild to moderate anxiety and OCD, D) I am unmedicated, E) I threw in the bit about oral sex to keep up with my stiff competition (free online porn), and F) off. {I often make explanations in such list form just to get to F) off or G) I don’t know why. DH thinks it’s funny and we live to make each other laugh.} 

NLH&F (Nips, Lips, Hips, ‘N Fingertips abbreviated- why didn’t I think of something short and sassy?) is not a reference to Russ Meyer (although I saw more than my fair share of his films in college when I was dating a film major) but it just might be a shout-out or throwback to the TILT tune. I used to TILT ’til it hurt and I suppose that I could have TILT on the brain as a result of it.

In general, I will most likely blog about nips, boobs, breasts, storage containers, yayas, and/or whatever you want to call them, not to further objectify myself or other women, but to take that part of the body, and thus the body of women as a whole, back from men and rampant commercialism. Breasts are for breastfeeding (although they also make nice pillows) and I just happen to be a mother who has used my breasts and the rest of my body to nurture two boys well into toddlerhood. I consider the ancient art of breastfeeding to be performing nothing less than a miracle and feel I deserve to be worshipped like a Goddess. Luckily, I have a partner who feels the same way, and I consider myself very lucky.

To make a short story even longer, and put too fine a point on it: I satisfy my toddler with my nips at least once daily, I flap my lips constantly, I shake my hips three to four times a week, and I use my fingertips in all that I do which is creative and sustaining. So there, now you know.

Nips, nips, nips…if you have a problem with them, please go somewhere else because I talk about them a lot so I imagine I will blog about them a lot, too. And if you are just here to see nipple photos: move along, as there’s nothing to see here if only because I can’t finger out how to upload them- which is so funny I’m almost peeing myself (another entry for another time; look for a future post titled “Urinary Incontinence and the Importance of Kegels”)

That’s all I have the caffeine for now!


I was wondering of you got my e-mail… I’m guessing by this post that you did 😉 I love your explaination (and anyway, once I knew it was you, I knew it wasn’t something pervy, so no need to explain on my account). I really love this blog – your other one too – but yeah… just thanks for blogging 🙂
