New buddies and a glass men-agerie


These are my new buddies Lobna and Steven. They have been following my YouTubes for some time and wanted to meet me.

They made me feel uber-cool because they are young and cool and that anybody young and cool is following anything I do makes some cool spill onto me by association.

Cool.

After a bite at the West Side Market, we stopped for a cuppa. Then we trotted over to the the Glass Bubble Project and said hi to my way-back buddy Mike Kaplan.

Over the next 10 or 15 minutes, Mike did an impromptu glass blowing demonstration. He made a perfect glass dildo, complete with a nice set of cojones. It was purple, with an attractive flecked pattern.

"If you don't use it," said Mike, "you can set it on the table as a conversation piece." He noted that it wouldn' t roll around on account of the cojones and said it would be available for sale in a day or two.

I do not intend to purchase the glass dildo, but I feel a certain connection to whomever does.

Dear future glass dildo owner, I witnessed the creation of your glass dildo and it was good, Love Erin.


That is all.

I'm young and cool, and have been following your Rainy Day Woman column, blog, and tweets.

You are now that much more young and cool.

Erin, I know you don't need my endorsement, but I wanted to tell you I named you as one of my seven blogs to watch in 2010 on my most recent post. I truly enjoy your witty spin on life's idiosyncrasies.

I was hoping for a phone-cam of the -- er -- glassworks project!

The mad woman behind the blog said...

You had me at glass dildo.

I'm going to need a few moments to myself.

I really didn't mean to perve out just now. Wow. Must be Friday.

On a serious note, Erin, when my home dudes sometimes look startled and say, "I always forget you're old, because you're so cool", it feels damned good!

WV - Oscar. I wonder if that blown glass dildo could be displayed on the mantel and claimed as an Oscar presented for work in a porn flick?

I'm young and arguably cool, and I've been your buddy for a long time now!! Hmmph.

Okay, well, I guess it doesn't count if we've never actually met. Although we live in the same city so it's not out of the realm of possibilities.

Word verification: nobally

as in "Nobally yours, Glass Houses"

I don't know if I qualify as young anymore - young spirited ya! Cool - to be sure! And mine's purple too!!

Erin O'Brien said...

Man, it's so cool in here, my eyebrows are gettin' frosty!

LimesNow said...

Don't freeze the glass with your coolness!

So, just curious, does Mike advertise that he can blow his own dick? And another related question, if the glass dildo is blown glass (and hollow), will it shatter during a strong orgasm?

Meagan said...

What, no photo?

Unfortunately, I have never been remotely cool, and now thy you bring it up I realize I might be running out o young. Sorry I couldn't help, and thanks for the exestential crisis. :)

My son blew a glass flower there.
He gave it to his girlfriend, not his mom.
She is more cool.
I don't have a ring thru my nose.

Why are the balls necessary? Other than their stabilizing influence? Also, all I can think about right now is how cold that thing would be if I forgot it in the car.

Erin O'Brien said...

I know. I can't believe I didn't take a pic. My buddies were taking all the pix. Maybe one will turn up ...

Anon, it won't break. It's solid glass. Glass dildos are widely available.

Bridgette, I'm glad you asked that. I also asked Mike if he makes them without the anatomically correct feature. He said that ball-free dildos are fine, and then he added, "But you gotta have something there if you're gonna put it up your ass."

I appreciated his safety concerns.
