“Flashing Knickers With Dewy”

Good morning everyone! This is Dewy Knickers in the studio today with another very special guest on “Flashing Knickers With Dewy”. Please put your hands together for a member of The Fresh Knickers Club, our sister(s), Many Madds~Dewy’s multiple sister(s).

Welcome Madd!

Thank you Dewy for having me.

1. Your blog is called Maddspace. What is the genesis of your blog title?

Well my nickname all my life has been Mad, ok I’ll say it…my last name was Anger, so…Madelyn Anger, well you can imagine what fun the kids at school had with that…so I became Madanger all through school…so I decided to just go with it and made it my own…Madd. When I started my blog it was going to be my space, all for me, for us to be free thus…Maddspace.

2. What was the decisive factor in starting your blog?

I had just lost a long time job due to new management coming in, was in a bad place mentally…which is never good for any of us, so I needed a focus, my son who knows us well suggested bloging and so here we are..

3. You write poetry, do you a favorite style of poem?

I really can’t say that I do…when I write it just flows out and I put it on paper, sometimes I am not the one doing the writing when its poetry, I should say most times, the muse in me and writer of poetry and stories is one of my alter egos…lana, she writes most of the poetry and anything erotic, a lot of her poems and stories I can’t post with out a little fixing…as she tends to get rather graphic and very sexual. A few of our other writings can tend to be dark when someone wants to voice their opinion or feeling and get them out. I tend to write mostly political rants, stuff about what’s going on in the news or things that make a statement, go to the pages I added on my blog there you will see that these were written by me, mostly..:)

4. At this point in your life, what are your priorities?

Just getting thru each day and staying focused, it is hard for us if I don’t. Too much chaos is a very bad thing in our life and not having a 9-5 could be a problem so we are working on that, bloging has helped and my new projects will give me much more focus and somewhere to put all the energies running around in here..:)

5. Are you artistic and do you do any crafts?

Yes I am, have always been. I shifted away from that for the past few years and until I lost my job didn’t realize how much I had missed it. It’s as if I had pushed a big part of who I am down and now it is rising to the surface again…yes!! I am starting my jewelry making again, I do a lot of beading, not just jewelry but wedding gowns, hats, and objects etc, I do a lot with shells, I love working with them to create a one of a kind piece…I also design and custom decorate tee shirts, jeans jackets, etc. I also used to paint; my specialty was doing wall murals in private homes, business offices, etc

6. Are your crafts something which you plan on selling?

Yes I am working on that as well; my son, who is a tecnocrat is building me a storefront site called…Maddisims.com…that is where I will show, sell and take custom orders.

7. When you had your own business what made you stop?

I moved to FL and went in a different direction, which was needed at the time

8. Do you have any children?

Yes my wonderful son Scott whose Birthday was Oct. 14th, he is now 26. he is a treasure and has always been there for me, even as a child.
We also had another beautiful son…Andrew…however we lost him when he was only 3mos old. He was a beautiful gift to us for a very short while.

9. Are you involved in a relationship at this time?

Yes with my partner of 9yrs, Carol. She is my best friend, my lover, my (finally) life partner. I am the caregiver and head of the household so to speak, but she helps keep me, us, all together

10. What is the best part of your life right now?

The excitement of freedom, freedom to start a new chapter in my life and see where it takes me. The feeling of the creative juices flowing freely again

11. What is the worst part of your life right now?

Hah…that’s easy, change is not something we take well, sooo we have to deal with that feeling of uncertainty that we hate..!!

12. Your sisterhood name in Multiple Madds, why is that?

I have DID/PTS, without going into it too much, I was a foster child at a very, very young age, abused in ways that no one would even want to know about, for years, seemed like forever, so we coped, coped in the only way we knew how to. There are many of us living in this head we call Madd. It’s just the way it is for us, it is what is normal for us, it works for us. Yes we have had therapy, oh my have we had therapy..:) We have tried doing what the “experts” said we should…not gonna happen, makes it worse, what we have built works for us. The easiest way for me to explain is to ask you to go to maddspace and read the page titled… I Am, We are Survivors. That probably will explain it as good as anything I could say here. This is a subject that most of us with this disorder try all our lives to hide. Most people don’t believe that it is real; it is not possible and find it hard if not impossible to understand. My family knows and lives with this “condition” daily, they love all of us just as we are which for them and us..lol…can be very trying, very funny, very sad and sometimes very scary at times. …to say the least..:) So with this kind of support I decided to be more open about us, it is exhausting to always try and keep such a big secret, and I for one am so very tired of secrets, they are not healthy!! At any age!! I had decided that this space, maddspace, would be my safe space, free space to be myself. So I have posted writing that will express who we are, and as I say after I write one of my rants…this is my rant, my opinion, my delusion…so don’t read it if you don’t like it. That’s why I have maddspace…freedom to just be…just be all of who we are.

Thank you so much for coming to the studio today and sharing your soul with us. I know that I speak for all the sisterhood when I say that all of you combine to make a truely beautiful and giving soul and Dewy is very grateful that you have shared all of your sides with us today.

Dewy is still looking for someone to interview next week. Anybody? Miss 1999? Mysti? Ann? Let me know!!!!

“Flashing Knickers With Dewy”

Good morning everyone!! This is Dewy Knickers with another episode of “Flashing Knickers With Dewy”. For previous interviews, please check my sidebar. Today’s very special guest is No Solace~Dewy’s sarcastic sister. Solace Cai is an 18 year old college student from North Carolina and is very outspoken and frank about her life and desires.

{Warning!! This interview deals with sex and is done with the full consent and approval of Solace}

“Good morning Solace, and how are you doing today?”
“I am doing great Dewy, thank you so much for having me!” (((hugs)))
“You are most welcome, although I hear that someone else just had you!”
“That is so true Dewy! I just gave my virginity to someone I love two weekends ago. The emotions I am feeling are in a poem I wrote on my blog.”
“I also understand hummingbunny wrote a Haiku for your first time which you also posted?”
“Yes, he has been wonderful to me and is an amazing friend and writer.”
“Didn’t you also just put a name to the phenomenon you have always experienced in your life?”
“Yes, last Thursday’s poetry dealt with being a synaethete; that is seeing colors when I read, or tasting music.”

1. When you taste something new, how long before it is linked to another sense?

1.Do you mean like if I try a new food how long would it usually be until I taste that food with another sense or how long until I experience another sense when I taste that food? If it’s the first, it depends on how much I liked or disliked the food. The stronger my opinion on the food is the less time before I experience that taste linked to another sense. If you’re asking about the second part… it doesn’t work that way. I don’t experience other senses when I taste something.

2. When you see a new color for the first time, do you hear or feel anything different?

2.Most of the time the experience only goes one way, like I see colors sometimes when other senses are involved, but other senses aren’t involved when I see colors. For example, I see silver when I have sex, but seeing silver doesn’t make me want to have sex or think I am having sex… or experience the sex again. Does that make sense?

3. Listening to music, do you see or taste anything?

3.I don’t really ever see or taste things when I listen to music… I feel things. It’s hard to explain because some of the experiences are very REAL, some of them are all in my “mind’s eye.” Like there are certian songs I can’t listen to just because I feel a very real Physical pain when I hear those songs. Then there are other songs that I feel mentally, more like it’s really Solace who feels it and not me, something like the feel of laying on a fur rug or the warmth of a fire burning, those are the ones Solace feels.

4. You have just started having sex, what surprised you the most?

What surprised me the most about sex? That’s easy, the fact that’s it’s so damn addicting. Well, that and the fact that I don’t regret it, even with the crazy situation I’ve gotten myself into and that I see black when I orgasm as compared to silver when I have sex.

5.What area of study in college are you leaning towards?

5. So about Forensic Anthropology. It’s a pretty good field to get into right now, it seems that most of the big cities have realized that it’s pretty handy to have a anthro. on hand. The FBI employs a large number of them too. There is a lot of Crime Scene Investigation involved, but anthropologists deal with the bodies, remains of bodies, anything like that. It’s pretty cool. I like to get my hands dirty and i get bored with predictability, so forensic anthropology- where I don’t know what’s going to turn up next- seems to be a good choice for me. It takes something special to keep my attentiion of long periods of time, I’m impatient, and I want to see results immediately, that’s something I can get with forensics. Some people are freaked out to even think about handling cadavers, but I think it’s really awesome. It’s not the fact that they’re dead by any means, it’s the whole idea of maybe being able to give a family some closure on a loss or even having a hand in the “bad guy” getting caught.

6. Do you still live at home and do you live on a farm?

6. Yes I do and no, I don’t. We have a farm, sort of, but we don’t live on it. It’s actually over an hour away. We have cattle and hogs (at least part of the year) and they’re pretty self sufficient.

7. Do you play sports?

7. I’m not the sports kind of gal… but I do like to watch hockey every now and then. But like I said before… if sex counts… then I’m a sports fanatic now 😉

8. What type of hobbies or crafts do you do?

8. Hobbies and crafts… ahh, I’m a dabbler, I do a little of this and a little of that. I tried the whole jewlery making thing… just isn’t for me. I used to sell stuff made out of duct tape. I made a pretty little penny off of it too. I make clothing too. I do the design and everything. I actually made my prom dress for my senior prom, but after making it I lost about 10 pounds and it didn’t fit anymore.

9. Who is your favorite musical artist?

9. I really don’t have a favorite artist. I used to, but after a huge sellout of the band I just can’t stand them anymore. I love music of all kinds…except Rap. I HATE rap.

10. What type of creative writing do you enjoy the most?

10) Favorite type of creative writing? That just depends on which muse decides to grace me with her presence. If I had to choose though, I’d say things like “Abbadon” and “Creatures of the Night Take Wing”(something I wrote in November of 2004). Though some of the poetry, “Perfecting the Dragon” is really cool to write. There’s a huge challange in poetry like that. I think I argued with myself over a better animalistic representation of air for almost an hour that night. the dragon wasn’t even a dragon to begin with. It was originally a human. Those poems are always lots of fun to write.

11. What type of friends do you have?

11) I have a lot of different types of friends. It really just depends on what day you ask to who I’ll say my friends are. I tend to fluctuate between groups, I don’t really fit in any one spot. I’ve got friends that all we have in common is the music we listen to, friends that I don’t have anything in common with, friends that give good advice, friends that I wouldn’t take advice from if my life depended on it. And recently I have apparently developed a new type of friend (for me that is). A fuck-buddy… not that I intended for it to be that way…

12. Do you consider yourself an activist?

12) No, not really. I mean, there are some things I take a stand on, but not really an activist. I guess that’s kind of shoking really though considering how opinionated I am and my dislike for authority and corruption.

“Thank you Solace for your taking the time today to be in the studio with me and answering these questions.”

“No problem Dewy, I enjoy talking to you. Say hi to hummingbunny for me.”

Hi everyone,

This is Brian. Dewy will not be commenting this weekend due to the fact that I am taking a blogging break. We will see you on Monday. 🙂

“Wednesday’s Question”

Good Morning everyone!!! Just wanted to let you all know that Flashy Pinky is thinking about making T-shirts for us if enough people are interested. Send Dewy an e-mail with how many shirts and what sizes you would like and she can sell them through her online shop. These are some of the ideas we are tossing around.

The Fresh Knickers Club
Flash Your Knickers Here
Keep Your Knickers Humming
Dewy Rules, Boys Drool
Knicker Ladies are Shady

So today’s question is….

“Which of the above sayings do you like the best, or something different?”

“Tuesday’s Question”

Good morning everyone! This is Dewy here on a fine morning in blogworld. I have had such a blast doing these questions nearly every day, the poetry, the interviews; that I have decided to write a book about my life working for HBNN. All the inside stuff about the sordid underbelly of blog reporting. All the tawdry affairs, the scurrilous gossip and all the scandals.

So today’s question is…

“What is your guilty pleasure, be it book, show or magazine that you just can’t do without?”
