Not writing my DSS paper has included a lot of sex - though not actually my having any.

Finally, and with no segue whatsoever, faemovana has created fandompersonals, a place where you can try to find significant others who will bypass that silly stuff like pina coladas and getting caught in the rain for far more important things like advance tickets to Episode 3, or why yes, you really do need to spend your food budget on DVDs for a show you've already watched a hundred times.

No word yet on whether or not they'll also encourage people to do things like post where they stand on things like Spike vs. Angel, Ray V vs Ray K, and the differences between the LOTR books vs the movies in the same context as whether or not they're a smoker, but if you ask me they definitely should.
BtVS full series boxed set comes out December 14. You can pre-order on Amazon and not only get free shipping but also save over $150 dollars on the set, thus paying not quite $250. *watches parents regret promising graduation gift*

Mmm, genderfuck. (Thanks to minim_calibre. Warning: various images include chest nudity.) Yes, they look like mannequins but hey, the shoot is called "ASexual Revolution." (Iconage here.)

akronohten: Ya like being traumatized? ;)

I haven't seen Oliver Stone's Alexander, nor do i have any desire to, but i was cracking up laughing reading this.

[Non sex-related, this contains a dead.from.laughter comment thread.]

Saturday evening:
Lez: Do you wanna watch porn?
Me: Sure.
Lez: That was easy.

Lez got a membership at the porn store across the bridge and brought back I Dream of Jenna, an I Dream of Jeannie porno with Jenna Jameson, and corralled a whole bunch of us to watch it. (Or part of it anyway. It's over 2 hours apparently. Porn with plot, though actually it's mostly plot interspersed with sex montages.) It's fabulous bad porn. At least at the beginning. It goes downhill as it goes along. We made running commentary on everything from the attractiveness of the porn stars to the camera direction. It was interesting seeing what squicked people -- penises, incest (the genie getting it on with her sister), rimming, foot sucking. I finally got grossed out by a guy splooging all over a woman's face. The porno totally could have been hot, but there were almost no erotic moments: the plot and the sex were mostly distinct and the sex was all just thrusting and sucking (well-acted/directed non-porn film sex often feels more real than this did). Plus the the guys weren't particularly attractive -- though this shouldn't have been a surprise.

1 Peter 2.1-3: "Rid yourselves, therefore, of all malice, and all guile, insincerity, envy, and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure, spiritual milk, so that by it you may grow into salvation -- if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good."

is it ever going to really snow?

... and am i going to regret typing this on the day it does?

omg i am so nostalgic for winter, like, real winter, with snow and biting winds and scarves and mittens and rosy cheeks and sledding and hot cocoa and crackling fires and stamping snow off boots in the front hall and ... sigh.

-starbuckle, December 3 and 4
Leaving the house to go to work i heard someone saying it was snowing out and lo, it was. Flakes just beginning to fall. And they have continued to fall so the ground is well-coated.

Also: There was grilled cheese for lunch.

Three things are too wonderful for me;
     four I do not understand:
the way of an eagle in the sky,
     the way of a snake on a rock,
the way of a ship on the high seas,
     and the way of a man with a girl.
-Proverbs 30:18-19
There needs to be slashfic including that.

CatieCurtis.com gives you her tours via PollStar which doesn't give you ticket info. JMG? That's a frellin' big venue for her. Iron Horse is much more her style.

Final Self-Defense class we were asked to "Bring in a representation of what helps you feel strong and/or safe." Representations included Ani DiFranco, Dar Williams, Destiny's Child, Christina Aguilera, Tool, Debussy, Manet, Barbara Kingsolver, Maya Angelou, the Grand Canyon, field hockey, family. Yeah Smith.

In the name of right and justice and personal integrity he challenges the very world order of which he is a part. From his dung heap he can demand an answer from the Creator of the universe. Is this what the Greeks called hubris, the intolerable insolence of a man who would make himself God's equal? Or is it the profoundest kind of religious faith, ranging far beyond the little shibboleths with which most men identify religion, a sublime confidence that to ask ultimate questions of God is not to turn away from him but to draw nearer to him?

Morning shifts are 3 hours apiece, and she's got all the other shifts covered as i understand it, so it would only be 6 hours/week, but still.
