Imma Vote “Yes” On That

28 Jul

Amidst the aftermath of the Norway shooting and the talks about the U.S. debt negotiations, CNN has the time to publish some pretty spectacular articles.  Are they related to a Nation of mourning and how crazy Andre Breivik (Norway shooter) is?  No.  Perhaps something involving the hacking scandal in the UK that’s threatening to take down the empire built by Rupert Murdoch?  Nope.  Maybe the freaking out U.S. citizens are doing since the government can’t come to a consensus on how to handle the dept crisis?  Uh uh.  Not even Amy Winehouse and what the cause of her untimely death was.

Instead, CNN is focusing on this .

So, let’s talk about it: casual sex, is it really worth it?  My answer: yes.  But only if the persons you’re doing it with is hot and they’re skilled in the sack.  Otherwise it’s like eating a cold slice of cheese pizza with a stale crust: total waste of time.  And something you’ll ask yourself, “why am I doing this” while you’re eating the pizza.

Make Mine a Double

I’ve spent an increased amount of time with Lucy(fer) and Damien since my bro-in-law had his heart attack a month ago.  Sure there are some good times, and then there are the times I’ve wanted to cover their screaming little faces with a pillow and press down until the crying stops.  I’ve resisted.

In the time I’ve spent with them, I’ve come to realize what the worst thing is.  It’s not the 20 minute tantrums over the dog’s age.  Nor is it the screaming when someone’s stupid little farm on their iPod touch has more diamonds than the other.  It’s not waking up at ungodly hours, or dealing with fits when it’s time for bed at night time.  It’s not even doing mass loads of laundry or cleaning up after them.  For awhile I thought the worst possible thing was having to change the sheets on a bunk bed.  That shit sucks.  Of all it sucks.

On our trip to the Vineyard, I’ve finally discovered the worst part of watching children: wiping a 4 year old’s ass with single ply toilet paper.

My idea of a shitty night is going out dancing.  I fucking hate it.  A lot.  I LOVE to watch other people dance, however, when it actually comes to moving my body, I’d rather sit at the table with my drink.  Just punch me in the mouth and leave me at home, I’d take that over dancing any night of the week.

For my birthday last year we ended up at Woody’s (which is a gay bar/club) in Philly.  Super sweet place.  I was perfectly content sitting around watching the scantily clad male dancers fawning all over this Jabba the Hut looking dude who was just throwing money at them.  It was awesome!  Jersey Belle, Oingo Boingo, and Boom Boom were having a blast jiggling their bits on the dance floor while Depeche Mode and I judged the people.  It was fun!  Best part?  I didn’t leave my bar stool until it was time to leave.

What does this have to do with JTT, you ask.  Easy, as I said, I enjoy watching other people dance.  Especially some dudes, the straight ones – if they’re good and they’re not sashaying up and down the stage.  And this, my people, is why I choose Twitch from So You Think You Can Dance for this week’s JTT.

If he’s got moves like that on the dance floor, just imagine what he’d be like in the sack.

I saw a sight today I will never forget.  One which will cause me terror filled dreams.  I will wake, sweating, and shaking from fear.  Horrible, awful sight.  Something NO PERSON should ever see.  Not ever!

I’m thinking dismembered bodies would be easier to get over.

The image?  Camel toe…on my mother…while we were at the beach.

Fucking disgusting!

I just vomited in my mouth.

Traffic Bites

16 Jul

This morning finds me dragging in Mystic, CT.  I had to share a bed my Lucy(fer), who-at 4-kicks a lot.  It came to me in the middle of the night that if I put some pillows between us she’ll kick the pillows and not me.  Success!  Unfortunately, that didn’t stop her from hogging the blankets.  At about 3:15 this morning I thought about pushing her out of bed.  Is that wrong?  My guess is I got about three hours of sleep.  And we still have a few hours to go before we land in Martha’s Vineyard.

Without traffic, Mystic is about four hours away.  With the traffic we hit yesterday, it took us ten fucking hours to get here.  Do you have any idea what it’s like to be trapped in a car with a six and four year old in a traffic jam?  Imagine having the first layer of skin pulled off of your eyeball and then having a gallon of lemon juice poured into it while you’re being anally fisted AND kicked in the groin at the same time.  Only worse.

I can only imagine what the car trip the rest of the way will be like.

God help us all.

You know what I love?  Green eyes with a set of dimples.  Oh how dreamy that combination can be.  It’ll make a girl’s heart skip a beat and knees start to buckle.

Guess what, boys and girls?  I have a new secret boyfriend!!  Yes, it’s true!  Yet another boyfriend who is so secret he doesn’t even know about it.  And guess what else?  He happens to have green eyes and dimples.  Shocking, I know.  You probably thought the starting of this post was completely unrelated to my confession about my new secret boyfriend.  You were totally wrong.

Yeah, so I work with this green eyed dreamboat and we’ve been working on a project together for the last few months.  I’m pretending we’re courting.  It was pretty sweet a few weeks back when we were sent into downtown Philadelphia together for a meeting.  Even MORE awesome when we got stuck in traffic.  Swear to christ it’s one of the only times in my life I prayed for an 8 hour traffic jam.  Oh how we bonded!!  We have SO much in common.  Namely our love of breakfast sandwiches and our love for booze.

We were totally meant to be.

But we know life would be too marvelous if there wasn’t something standing in our way.  Oh no, that would just be way too boring.  Of course he’s totally married.

She’s totally cute too.  And skinny.  And young.

I hate her.

Admit you thought another Tuesday would pass without a JTT.  Go ahead, you can admit it.  It won’t hurt my feelings.  It really won’t.  Once you admit it to yourself, you can continue…Ready?  Are we done? You sure?  Because I don’t want to move on until you’re ready.  Please don’t feel obligated to just keep on reading right away.  Take a break if you need to.  Maybe go grab yourself a drink of water.  Or take some deep breaths and get yourself together.  Go ahead.  I’ll wait.

Shall we?

Yes, let’s…
