HRH Update

I just got HRH back from the vet. She is still sedated, and sleeping peacefully. She has a urinary tract infection. The veterinarian gave her some fluids, an antibiotic injection, and some medicine for her to take for seven days. I was told she should be feeling much better in about two or three days. I will have to take her back next week for a check up. In all, my poor sick girl will cost me about $200, but for the love and companionship I have received from her over the last 15 years (and hopefully, many years to come), it is absolutely worth it.

The cat does not offer services. The cat offers itself. Of course he wants care and shelter. You don’t buy love for nothing.

Moment of Zen: Boxers

20131206-230026.jpg

I love a good comfortable pair of boxers, though I’m not one to ask “Are you a boxers or briefs guy?” Because it will be according to how I was feeling when I picked out my underwear that morning. However, I know this one, very wonderful, guy who loves to see a guy in his boxers (especially those from American Eagle), which I do as well. Anyway, I decided to do this post as a thank you for our friendship. This post is for him. I hope y’all will like it as well.

Monday, Monday…

20131201-234255.jpg

It seems that most Mondays I have the worst time coming up with a blog topic. This Monday is no exception. Maybe it’s because I dread returning to school on Monday…I have no idea why. Anyway, I’ve got nothing. I racked my brain and I just came up with nothing. Sometimes, I can start writing and come up with something as the ideas begin to flow. Apparently, this was not one of those times.

“Writing is something that you don’t know how to do. You sit down and it’s something that happens, or it may not happen. So, how can you teach anybody how to write? It’s beyond me, because you yourself don’t even know if you’re going to be able to. I’m always worried, well, you know, every time I go upstairs with my wine bottle. Sometimes I’ll sit at that typewriter for fifteen minutes, you know. I don’t go up there to write. The typewriter’s up there. If it doesn’t start moving, I say, well this could be the night that I hit the dust.”
― Charles Bukowski


What Is It?

20131120-204231.jpg

I have two question for you guys. What is it about a man that always turns you on? Makes you weak in he knees? This is not necessarily a question about sex, but about that one thing that never fails for you to think or say aloud, “Ugh, damn!”

For me, that one thing is when a man smells good. Smells have always evoked a strong emotional response with me. I love the smell of a man when he is freshly showered, or when he has on the perfect cologne. I’m not speaking of a funky smell or anything, but sometimes it is just the smell of man that can drive me crazy.

I asked a friend of mine what was his major turn on, and he said that it was the feel of a man’s body. I have to agree with him on this. Just think about when I guy walks up behind you and his hard chest meets your back. I know that my knees turn to jelly when a guy does this.

Also, what is the first thing about a guy that you notice? If I’m facing a guy, my eyes generally go to his eyes, but if his back is to me, I’m going to check out his butt first. My friend mentioned that one of the first thing he notices about a guy is if he has sexy kissable lips. He really enjoys kissing, so his eyes always goes to a guys lips.

So I want to know from you guys (and gals, for those who read this): What is the one thing about a man that never fails to turn you on? Also, what is the first thing you notice about a guy?


A Whimsical Wednesday

20131119-210358.jpg

I racked my brain for a post last night, but came up with nothing. I was also incredibly sleepy. I’d dozed off twice trying to come up with a topic. So I began to browse through some picture I had found on the Internet and saved. I loved this one. It was so cute and whimsical, and you guys know how much I love cats, especially my own HRH.

I have been in an exceptionally good mood this week and last. It could be that I am finally recovering from my cold, or it could have to do with the fact that we will be out of school all of next week. It could have to do with the fact that I’ve had some wonderful conversations with friends this week, and with one friend in particular. If this friend is reading this, then he knows who he is and that he puts a smile on my face.

I hope each of you are having a wonderful week.


TMI QUESTIONS: LOST AND FOUND

20131106-222053.jpg

Only occasionally do I answer the TMI questions from Just a Jeep Guy. Most of the time, I can only answer a few of them, but when I can answer most of them, these posts are generally fun to write. So here is my TMI: LOST AND FOUND?

1. Do you tend to lose things only to find them later?

Yes, I do. If you saw my desk at school, you would understand. I constantly lose things on my desk, only to find them later. However, it’s not just my desk. I constantly lose things and then find whatever I lost when I least expect it. The bad thing is, I usually don’t need it when I find, but then need it a few days later, only to forget where I found it.

2. Have you ever gone “shopping” in the Lost and Found?

Only for props and costumes for my Drama Club.

3. Has a dog or other pet “followed” you home?

No. I have an aunt who has had a lot of pets “follow” her home, but HRH was chosen on purpose and has made a wonderful companion.

4. How are you at finding a bargain?

I am pretty good at finding bargains. Being a poor grad student and now a teacher, I have to search for the bargains.

5. How many times have you lost your wallet?

Only twice, that I can remember. Once was in the basement of a gay bar in Florence, Italy. I was a bit to busy with “other things” to notice that it had fallen out of my pocket. Luckily, the bartender went down there with a flashlight and found it. Even more lucky, everything was still in my wallet. The other time, I didn’t actually lose it, it was stolen.

6. How do you find the time?

I just do. Sometimes, it has a lot to do with a lack of sleep. Plus, I have the philosophy, “Don’t freak out; it will all get done…eventually.”

7. Have you found your soul mate? Do you think you ever will?

I have not found my soul mate, at least as far as I know. Will I ever find him? It looks less and less likely as the years go on. I hope I will find him someday, but I will just have to wait and see. I will keep searching, nonetheless.

8. Do you have a lost love?

No, I don’t. I thought I had once, but I realized that it was just the idea that I was in love with.

9. When did you loose your innocence?

I lost my innocence the day that my best friend told me she had had sex with numerous guys. We had always said that we would save ourselves for marriage, yet she had not. I didn’t know this because she had moved away for a few years. Back before emails and cell phones (and when long distance was too expensive), we used to write each other letters. When she moved back, we were friends as if she had never left. Year, there was lots of things about her years away that she didn’t tell me until later. So when the truth came out, my innocence was lost from that point on. I did always enjoy hearing “all” the details about her various boyfriends. I think I knew the dick size of half the guys of south Alabama, LOL.

BONUS
When did you loose your virginity? How many times have you helped someone loose their’s?

When I lost my virginity to a girl, it was to the only girl I ever thought I loves. She was a bit of a tomboy and I met her when I was attending the University of Alabama for an honors program during the summer between my junior and senior year of high school. I remember we were sitting on a bench behind the business library and telling her that I wanted to ask her something. For the life of me, I do not remember what I was going to ask, but I do remember that she said, “I know what you’re going to ask.” She said that I was going to ask her to have sex. It wasn’t my intent, but I thought what the hell. It took a week or so to finally convince her, and I lost my virginity in Parker-Adams Hall at the University of Alabama.

My first time with a man was when I was 23. It was not a particularly pleasant experience, and it is not a story I want to relate. It was consensual, but a bad experience. It was the only bad sex that I have ever had though, so I think I have been pretty fortunate since.

As far as helping someone loose theirs. For sure I know that I have only twice, but there could have been a few more times. Once was with the aforementioned girl I lost my virginity too, and the other was a guy who I hooked up with.


Possible TMI…

20131017-222521.jpg

Home Alone + Bottle of Wine + Porn = A Fun Night

I had the house to myself tonight, since my roommate was away, so I took full advantage to get a bottle of wine (I rarely drink alone, but just wanted some wine), hang out in my underwear (ok, I was actually naked for most of the time), and watch a little bit of porn. We all masturbate, it’s part of life, and I needed a little stress release and decompression. I had a good, make that a great, night, but it also means that I wasn’t in the frame of mind to write a substantial post. As I am writing this I am a bit tipsy. Usually, I try not to write a post when I am drunk (not that I drink all that often), but what the hell! I enjoyed myself and wanted to share. TMI? Probably…


TGIF

20130822-210815.jpg

It’s the end of the second week of school. So far things seem to be going well, and the students are responding well with my new “I’m not taking any of your crap” attitude. So tonight, I plan on getting my drink on with friends. The question is: should I drink Vodka or Beer? I will probably go for beer, but I haven’t totally decided, vodka goes down too smoothly, especially when it’s mixed with something and I might have too much. I always stick to only one type of drink a night, so that I don’t get a hangover or get sick. No matter what I drink, I plan on having a good time.


TMI: THAT’S SO FUNNY I FORGOT TO LAUGH!

20130731-210227.jpg

On Sean’s blog, Just a Jeep Guy, he posted on Tuesday “TMI TUESDAY QUESTIONS: THAT’S SO FUNNY I FORGOT TO LAUGH!.” And I decided that I would once again participate. So here we go:

1. Do you have a good laugh? Do you like it?

I tend to think I do. It’s a hearty laugh when I am really laughing, though most of the time I laugh silently.

2. Do you have a sense of humor? What kind?

I do have a sense of humor. It is usually fairly dry, though sometimes a bit dirty. My high school students never get my jokes, but my college students tend to find me pretty funny. It’s one of the reasons that they flock to my class.

3. How important is a sense of humor in a mate?

The people I surround myself with have to have a sense of humor; otherwise, life gets boring.

4. Are you attracted to one type of humor over another?

Though I like some British humor, Monty Python humor escapes me as does most stupid humor. I hate it when humor is just mean, or people get hurt for a laugh. I tend to like more intellectual humor. Nothing beats a good dirty joke though.

5. Can being really funny make an “unfortunate looking” person sexy and attractive to you?

Yes, it can. Someone with a great sense of humor shows that they have a great personality. Nothing is sexier than someone who is easy to get along with and has a great sense of humor.

6. Fart jokes are_______!

Hilarious. I can’t help it. Potty humor is just funny to me. I couldn’t help it last night when my cat farted (not very regal of HRH, but to damn funny). She was sitting there and all of a sudden her back end lifted up, and I heard a little “berrrrrroot.” I got the pure silly giggles. She didn’t appreciate me laughing at her.

7. Do you embarrass easily?

Yes. Yes, I do. Enough said.

8. Do you tend to wear silly t-shirts? Do you have a favorite?

I don’t usually wear silly t-shirts. The only one that I own is a Sheldon t-shirt with “Bazinga” on it.

9. Do you make faces or strike a pose when having your picture taken?

No, I don’t. I hate having my picture taken so I avoid it if at all possible. When I have tried to make faces or strike a pose, it just comes out looking either forced or just stupid.

10. Which is the funniest movie you’ve seen?

Few movies make me just laugh out loud, but if I had to choose it would either be “History of the World Part I” or “Spaceballs.” Most movies that make me laugh have sad parts as well as humorous parts, such as “The Help“:

Minny Jackson: Eat my shit.
Hilly Holbrook: Excuse me!
Minny Jackson: I said eat… my… shit.
Hilly Holbrook: Have you lost your mind?
Minny Jackson: No, ma’am but you is about to. ‘Cause you just did.

or “Fried Green Tomatoes“:

[Evelyn is cut off in a parking lot]
Evelyn Couch: Hey! I was waiting for that spot!
Girl #1: Face it, lady, we’re younger and faster!
[Evelyn rear-ends the other car six times]
Girl #1: What are you *doing*?
Girl #2: Are you *crazy*?
Evelyn Couch: Face it, girls, I’m older and I have more insurance.

(And my favorite quote from Fried Green Tomatoes)
Ninny Threadgoode: [to Evelyn] You git yourself some hormones!

or “The King’s Speech

King George VI: All that work down the drain. My own brother, I couldn’t say a single word to him in reply.
Lionel Logue: Why do you stammer so much more with David than you ever do with me?
King George VI: ‘Cos you’re b… bloody well paid to listen.
Lionel Logue: Bertie, I’m not a geisha girl.
King George VI: St… stop trying to be so bloody clever.
Lionel Logue: What is it about David that stops you speaking?
King George VI: What is it about you that bloody well makes you want to go on about it the whole bloody time?
Lionel Logue: Vulgar, but fluent; you don’t stammer when you swear.
King George VI: Oh, bugger orf!
Lionel Logue: Is that the best you can do?
King George VI: Well… bloody bugger to you, you beastly bastard.
Lionel Logue: Oh, a public school prig could do better than that.
King George VI: Shit. Shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit, shit!
Lionel Logue: Yes!
King George VI: Shit!
Lionel Logue: Defecation flows trippingly from the tongue!
King George VI: Because I’m angry!
Lionel Logue: Do you know the f-word?
King George VI: F… f… fornication?
Lionel Logue: Oh, Bertie.
King George VI: Fuck. Fuck! Fuck, fuck, fuck and fuck! Fuck, fuck and bugger! Bugger, bugger, buggerty buggerty buggerty, fuck, fuck, arse!
Lionel Logue: Yes…
King George VI: Balls, balls…
Lionel Logue: …you see, not a hesitation!
King George VI: …fuckity, shit, shit, fuck and willy. Willy, shit and fuck and… tits.

That being said there are some TV shows that always make me laugh out loud. I love “The Big Bang Theory” and “Mike & Molly.” And though I hate to admit it, because I think it is the most foul show on TV, I can’t help but laugh at “2 Broke Girls.”

11. Do clowns scare you or make you laugh?

There is nothing funny about clowns! They scare the crap out of me.

BONUS

What’s the funniest thing to happen to you while having sex?

I plead the fifth on this one. Honestly, I can’t think of anything at the moment.


Moment of Zen: HRH

20130719-224757.jpg

With my headaches these last few days, my moments of Zen have all included my cat, HRH. She is a wonderful companion who knows how to comfort me in my time of pain. There are few things as comfortable as cuddling with a kitty, unless it it cuddling with a cute guy like in these photos.
