ONE NIGHT-STAND

 
Someone at work is always fascinated by what people have in their lunch bag or the messenger or the handbags. She said it's interesting to see what one might find in them, and it is interesting to see if the items tell one about the person. The other day she asked some of us what she'd find if she saw our night stand. So... I thought, hmmmm, what an interesting post that could be? What the hell. And you thought this was going to be another sordid one-night stand story, didn't you??? Well as the late Mae West said- "Those easily shocked should be shocked more often." So, if you came into my boudoir right now, here's what you'd find on my nightstand. Shall we have a close look?

On the top is a vintage urn, found with an assortment of bird feathers of all sorts. A vase with some of the poppies my good friend the Dame gave me, a marble candleholder that is so elegant when lit. That was a gift from my cousin Maggie, and my current queue of books. 
Just finished. And I will say A MUST READ! She called this even before the insurrection.
My current read.
My next read!
Past reads...Dangerous When Wet, my friends Auto biography of sorts, the Elloitt Page autobiography Page Boy, and a fun little Drag Book...next to my cow hide boxes.
In the drawer...a Book of Puns, the infamous Little Black Book of my men, my address book, some pens, a pair of scissors, ginger and rose hand cream, and linen bed spray for relaxation. It is heavenly. But what was in the cow hide boxes?
Well, never you mind what is in this one!!!!! There may be ladies present!!!! But it's not a fun box for nothing!!!!!
And the larger one, contains my square cuts since my 10-drawer dresser is already packed with 3 drawers of jeans, 2 drawers of shorts, 2 drawers of tee shirts and 2 drawers of underwear and jockstraps and one of socks. About the only thing not seen on the nightstand is my nightly glass of water that always goes to bed with me, in case I wake and get thirsty.

So... there's that. Were you shocked by something there or not there? What would we find at your nightstand???

  1. A well-appointed nightstand Mistress!!!! Three interesting books and all those square cuts!!! My nightstand is boring compared to yours...an alarm clock and lamp and that's a bit it. Also a book.

  2. Oh....I can imagine that fun box!!!!!! And stored in a cow hide box! LOL! And yes, I too read Cheney's book. It further opens your eyes on that damn party!!!

    On my nightstand one can see two pictures, a clock, lamp, my phone at night, and some Gun Oil.

    I'd rather have your nightstand. Mine looks like the pharmacy at a Rite Aid Drug store.

  4. Nice nightstand! It does say a lot about us. Loved this glimpse. I’ll be the first to admit I keep my favorite childhood stuffed animal on display on the bottom shelf of my nightstand. And there may be a few naughty items in the drawer. Well, us gay boys have needs right?

  5. Nice nightstand! Very handsome and I love all the art hanging too! I too read Liz's book and heard some good things about The Book of Accidents, but I'm not into twisted thrillers, so I'm not sure Ill read it. But the other Homecoming, sounds entertaining. I googled them.

    On mine there is an alarm clock, my phone (land line), tissues, fresh blooms, a glass of water, a candle and framed picture of William, medications, and a flashlight.There’s nothing worse than waking up in the middle of the night to use the restroom and discovering the power is out, right? I'm such an old lady.

    1. Ms Agnes, I have croc type sliip ons next to my bed. We call them my pee shoes. Gravity sometimes takes over too quickly when I make my middle of the night run (okay, waddle) to the bathroom. Washable slippers are a must! Balder Half got tired of replacing my regular slippers. So, regular during the day and crocs at night. Flashlight optional. Old ladyhood is rare in my family so I'm glad to be here for the time being. I hope you are doing well.

    2. I've been well and hope you have too! Miss seeing you here and other blogs. I never thought of plastic shoes at night. Your just smart see. I do question my move. The big house is long gone. Sold at the urging of my kibd...and it was much too big for me to stay in, and now settled in my summer beach house. A 5 room house. Scenic? yes, but much to cold year round I think. Hurry up spring and get here. I must admit hearing the surf is quite something all day though. So soothing.

  6. Very handsome nightstand...I bet the rest of the room is just as handsome. On my nightside table there is always a stack of magazines or the latest best seller, keeping reading material close by and my dildo is helpful for those restless nights!!

  7. WAIT!!!!! Where is the gin and tonic?!?!?!

    And you have way too many square cuts for being nude all the time! Mine nightstand? Mostly water, clock, my phone, hand lotion, lip balm and any medication

  8. Loved this!!!! I can't say your surprised me, but what a wide selection of reading. On mine? A few books, lamps and then the "fun drawer" of several different size dildos, anal vibrators, condoms, lube, poppers and a flesh jack. Don't judge...no boyfriend at the moment.

  9. Right now, it's a lot less than it often is,
    A cube outlet
    An orange lamp from the 70’s which doesn't work
    Voltaren gel
    A red pen
    A yellow highlighter
    A pencil sharpener (no pencils though)
    One and a half eraser
    Two remotes, one of which is for the tv that I never use, the other I've forgotten what is for
    A shitty phone cover
    A Batman: Mad Love coloring book
    A few pages ripped out of a notebook with drag dress sketches
    A calendar/notebook from 2023 which I've only used sparingly, and only for doodles of dresses and wig creations
    Three loose pieces of paper with designs I considered haven printed on t-shirts.
    A file for my nails.

  10. Love it! See your a good boy and keep it all in its place. Me? My tablet/laptop holder, currently empty.
    Menthol cough drops, a water bottle, little jar of coconut oil (doubles as lube), tissues, two butt plugs, one dildo and a hitachi magic wand.

  11. Love all the color, and combos henny! And the pictures. True Queen henny. I have two nightstands. One has tissues, lamp, clock and meds on it. On my secondary night table there is a jar labelled “utensils” that is full of kitchen items such as spatulas, spoons, icing spreaders, skewers, etc.

    I’m a living mess, and my nightstand reflects that more than anything. If I’m honest, I don’t know why half of that stuff is there.

    Headphones. Eyelashes. Drugs. Phone. A DJ future play list. A fallen Grumpy Cat calendar. One travel mug, and one other mug. The travel mug has this mornings’ coffee in it, and the other mug red wine in it. I’m a classy individual. I had wine and Kraft mac and cheese for dinner. Don’t judge me.

  15. On the top and shelf, a digital clock, a CD player/radio, a stack of books, a couple of journal/notebooks, a small stuffed sheep, and small japanese stuffed hamster, three pairs of distance glasses, binoculars, an electric bullhorn, a lamp, a box of kleenex. In the drawer, several sets of keys, my wallets, several watches, several travel wallets with Euros, GPB, Canadian Dollars, Icelandic Krona, - I am alway ready to travel on a moments notice.

  16. I keep a digital clock that glows softly instead of ringing when the alarm goes off, a small lamp, and my kindle for night time reading. In the first drawer I keep lubricant to keep my husband and any guests that we have happy. In the second drawer, I have throat lozenges, and cold and flu items for very dry air.

    Not nearly as stately as yours. But I demand to know whats in the OTHER box!!!!

  20. Well, I am not shocked at all. And I know what's in the Fun Box...because you've told me! LOL.
    Oh, on second thought, maybe I ***am*** shocked just a little. My buddy's books are not mentioned at all and they're VERY fun reads. I promise.

    2. LOL. Oh, you know what used to be in my drawers. Nowadays? A lamp, a clock, TV remote (for a TV I never watch). Sad, ain't it??? All of the funs went away.... 😱
      My buddy's books:
      "Marvin's World of Deadheads"
      "Jenna's Gang of Deadheads"
      "Nathan's Clan of Deadheads"
      In that order. I think you'd get a kick out of the characters of Tommy and Davy. (oh, and Versace makes an appearance in "Jenna's Gang of Deadheads.")

      Delete
    3. And I was going to ask if they were about deadheads. I will say too, I was never a watcher of tv in bed. I tried once in my teens. It puts me right out, so what's the point?

      Delete
    4. I think you'd really enjoy the books. You've got the absolute right sense of humor. BTW, Tommy, Mike, and Davy are gay - though it's not spelled out as such (in other words they don't declare, "I'm gay.") And Nathan has himself a one-night stand with a guy.... 😊

  21. Mine is not nearly as interesting. Besides the lamp, there's a clock and my phone charging beside it. Nothing is in the drawer, and the shelf is as bare as Melania's hoo hah unless Justin Trudeau is sending his regards.

  23. You would have the most beautifully appointed nightstand of anyone! My nightstand has an echo dot so I can talk to Alexa, and a book. It's a small nightstand. The drawer has odds and ends. I put checks in there that I've deposited with my phone and there are scraps of paper with bits of poems I've written when I couldn't sleep or I had a burst of inspiration but it wasn't a big enough burst to actually finish the poem. The cabinet holds some personal sexy time things that were gifts from a certain man, along with I don't know what. I need to look in there!

    Love,

    Beautiful decor as always, Maddie, though I was surprised at the shocking lack of condoms! Unless that's what's stashed with your sex toy collection in the unopened Pandora's box, LOL?

    My nightstand has a small Tiffany style dragonfly lamp, an alarm clock, my cell phone and a box of Kleenex on it. I don't like to read in bed, so my book pile is in the living room... I'm currently reading Lucy Worsley's "Agatha Christie: An Elusive Woman".

  28. Hey, Mads. Did you enlarge your font a little or are my eyes getting better? I don't have a nightstand, per se. I have a bedside tray on wheels. It holds a small lamp, t.v. remote, my phone, kindle, my adjustable bed doohickey, tissue, Tums and cough drops. Oh, and a whistle (don't ask).

      Oh yes, I used to have Tums in mine, and still do depending on what spicy treat I had for dinner. A whistle?!?!?!? Now you know I have to ask. Y'all cracking me up with some of these items. Did you see Penguin's comment... has an electric bullhorn?!?!? And Fat Sissy apparently has a kitchen utensil holder with kitchen utensils. I for sure am NOT asking about that one.

  29. I admit I google those books and want to read them. Your room looks beautiful. My nighttable has a white ceramic lamp with punched-out holes, a picture of my late father, a bottle of valerian (stinks to high heaven) Ink by Amanda Sun ,a half-eaten box of blueberries. My phone and water at night.

    Now, if the question were “What’s in your nightstand?” the answer might be a little more interesting.

    I love your style, you know that. And you are right, it's always very interesting to know what people actually carry in their lunch boxes (I usually have some granola bars, some cheese and grapes: my lunch). I love that you read Liz Cheney's book. I did too (birds of a feather..) and I think she IS on point: Cheeto is a danger.
    I also read Pageboy and it was touching and heartwarming, seeing someone find himself like that.

  37. I wouldn’t really call it a nightstand, but it roughly serves as that- I have a desk with a drawer and one side I put things on before I go to bed so that counts. I have various books I have been meaning to read, some of which include the second and third volume of the space trilogy, Hollow City (the second book following Mrs. Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), a project I have been working on which consists of cutting the book to make a sort of book hideout on the inside (it’ll be hollow). I also have a big journal where I write some stories whenever I have inspiration as well of a pile of important papers that I cleaned out recently. And a few drag items, like lashes and nails, and some jewels. Oh and let’s not forget my two pairs of glasses because without those I’m blind. So it is not as well appointed as your night table by any means.

  38. Love it! My nightstand has a clock and lamp, a dish for my beads and watch, a succulent, and in the drawer, a collection of creams, lubes, cuffs, rope, dildos, one butt plug that vibrates. When that's inserted, and I climax...what an orgasism that is.
