Sometimes, as a treat, Auntie Roadchick will buy herself a copy of O - The Oprah Magazine. There's always a ton of stuff to read, just enough self-help to keep you busy for a little while, and tons of pictures.

What can the 'chick say? She's pretty easy to entertain.

The September issue did not disappoint. According to Oprah, "This issue is for anybody out there who's feeling overwhelmed."

Um, hand up, right here, 'kay? A tiny, wee bit overwhelmed.

Anyway, so lots of self-helpy this month. Add that to the list.

Improve self.
That goes right under: Clean litter box.

But Oprah & Co. rarely disappoint.

In the Tech Toys section (page 180), there are high tech vibrators. Yup, you read that right. Vibrators, in Oooooooo magazine. Gives a new meaning to the Big O, don't it?

Anyway, one, called Naughtinano by OhMiBod, plugs into your iPod and it "pulses in sync with the tune you're hearing." Visit for more details or to purchase. Appropriately priced at $69.

There's another selection for the more. . . discreet: The Tiny Spot by Myla "that could pass for a piece of custom art." You know, in case you're into leaving your vibrator on the coffee table. Visit for more details or to purchase. Only $150.

Now, your Auntie Roadchick does have to say that those are two excellent ways of relieving a little stress. Or a lot. If you have lots of batteries.

Where were we?

Oh yes, the magazine:

There's always a gorgeous fashion spread with tons of clothes the 'chick would LOVE to have. But, they're not practical. They're good for getting ideas of what is "in", but the 'chick cannot see herself buying a $995 Marc Jacobs summer dress. Ever.

But the best part is: "Can I wear my summer dresses in the fall?"

Answer: Yes. And you can save money by wearing tights ($23) with your open-toed high-heeled sandals (also from summer).

Hee. As if anyone that can buy a $995 dress needs to save money by schlepping the look into fall with tights.

Ohhhhhprah, Auntie Roadchick loves you, yes she does. And if you ever need a reviewer for . . . products (or books), the 'chick is available.

amazingly enough i have never worked up the courage to buy a vibrator. however, if the naughtinano will work with my sansa and upping the volume ups the power, i just might. lol, love that this caused you to put up a warning. with me it's usually just my foul mouth.
congrats on your first, no way in hell are kids supposed to see this post! love it. :)

Heather~ Dunno about the volume option, but wouldn't that be fun??? I rarely worry about the foul language, but sex? Think of the childreeeeeeen! *L*

at least this is std free sex. and no condom needed. :)

I was reading about the vibrators thinking "Road Chick reads Oprah's rag for the ARTICLES. Heee Heee."

I'm known for my maturity.

Liz~ Actually, Roadchick buys it for the pictures, but if you tell anyone that, she will deny it to her dying day. *g*

I just had a "tea out the nose" moment over the leaving the vibrator on the coffee table. Oh 'chick, you've got a way with words.

Susan~ Mind the sticky spot.
