The Thing About Dicks

I was talking to a friend earlier, and we were discussing this interesting problem that we sometimes face as women. The innate need of some men to show off their dicks.

You can be having a nice conversation with someone on the phone through texting, then suddenly… you get a dick-picture. No warning. You’re not even necessarily flirting. And there it is. Staring you in the face.

What is it with these men? How does it work out in their mind?

“We’re having a nice conversation. She’s being totally cool and chatting with me… I think it’s time for the dick!”

Why would you ever think that’s the logical next step?!

No offense guys, but dicks aren’t that pretty. They’re not exactly aesthetically pleasing. It’s not like a woman will take a look at your dick and be instantly horny. Most of us just aren’t wired like that. Try chatting some more. If you think that it’s time to show a woman your dick. Think again. Unless she’s asking you to, keep it in your pants!

New Discovery

I’ve discovered a new author that I like! Something I really wasn’t expecting. It all started with me getting an iPad and the Kindle app for it. When I was about to travel I just logged onto Amazon and grabbed a handful of free Kindle books to have something to read. As it turns out, one of them was really good!

It was a little bit raunchier than I’m used to, but still falls into the historical romance category (regency). She has paperback copies as well, and I love paperbacks – but I’m quite fond of this new, easy way of reading as well. The first book in her Mayhem in Mayfair series is available free for Kindle. I’ve since started buying the other books, which aren’t horrible expensive as well.

So, if you’re looking for something new to read. Check out Grace Callaway’s “Her Husband’s Harlot”!

Her Husband's Harlot

Blergh

The title just about sums up how I feel at the moment. Despite the nice, hot summer weather I’ve managed to contract a cold. I don’t know how it’s possible, but there you have it! So I’m feeling pretty poorly at the moment.

I’m in the in-between place where you feel really quite bad, but not quite bad enough to stay home from work. (Not that I want to feel bad enough to stay home from work.) I rarely, if ever, get a fever. My temperature will rise a degree or so, but because my base temperature is so low, I’m still half a degree short of what is officially considered running a fever. Hopefully it will pass soon though, cause I hate having a bunged up nose and coughing all the time. My voice doesn’t even get that hoarse, sexy sound.. It just gets hoarse. Totally unfair!

In other news… Well, actually.. I’ll get back to you on that. There’s some news that I found out, but I still need to digest it a bit.

Now I will go and bury myself under the bed covers and watch movies. The only thing you can do when feeling like this.

 

I wish I was this cute when sick!

Someone…

… grew a beard when I wasn’t around!

I forgot to say earlier that the boyfriend grew himself a beard when I wasn’t looking. The advantage of living in separate countries I guess – you can get away with a lot more without the other person noticing! His mom gave it away before I went to visit though, so it wasn’t a complete surprise when I came over. It definitely took some getting used to though. I don’t mind the beard, but it’s definitely taking me some time to get used to it being around. Also, he kind of looks like a Norwegian lumberjack, don’t you think?

Someone’s getting a red flannel shirt for Christmas…

Messing Around

I’ve been messing around with the theme for the website a bit, but I can never get it the way I want it, it seems. WordPress isn’t letting me easily change the menu for example. I’d like to have it match the little menus for my sidebar, but nope! Changing the font of the menu/titles… Also not something it’s happy for me to do. At least the theme isn’t quite as dark and gloomy anymore though, which is something!

Now, if only I could make a decent looking header! But for that I think one may need to know a bit more about Photoshop than yours truly..

Still, I shouldn’t complain too much – because I still prefer this new version to the previous one. Also, it has an owl. Nothing can be entirely bad if there’s an owl.

Hmm… Wondering if I should make a version of this theme for my WoW site. It could use a face lift, and be less dark and gloomy as well. Much to ponder!

Home

I’m back home again. Finally got through the door around 2 am. The days I travel always end up rather long since there’s the getting to/from the airports on each end, and the hours spent at the airports. The actual flight itself is only two hours long, but in total I still end up spending nearly twelve hours travelling. So, I’m pretty beat today.

During the flight I had a woman in the row behind me traveling with a small child. A small, very upset child. Actually, I’m not sure if upset is the right word to use. The kid was a little prick. He was acting out and kept telling his mom to “shut up”. At one point he even said… “Listen… shut up!” And he was like three years old or something!

I’m not judging. I know kids can be a handful. But I was surprised at how rude someone could be at such a young age! My nephew can have tantrums like the best of them… But I’ve never heard him be insolent and rude in quite the same manner as this kid. I felt bad for the mom though. She was doing her best and staying calm. Much calmer than I think I could have managed when my kid was being arbitrary, refusing to store the tray table, kicking the seat in front (my seat), and just shouting at her to shut up. Kudos to the mom for keeping her cool! (She had a baby in a harness as well!)

When I was at the luggage collection area I was struck by how annoying it is when everyone is standing right next to the belt to see the bags. If everyone would just take a few steps back, everyone would be able to see! As it is, everyone is standing right at the belt, and if you were a few minutes late you basically won’t see anything. I’m too short, and I couldn’t see a thing until enough people had left to leave some spaces free. It was like a proverbial wall between me and the luggage belt!

Anyway, a two hour or so drive later and I finally made it home. Bailey (my dog), was happy to see me, to the point of ecstatic. Saga, the cat, was making sounds and brushing up against me. So, she either wanted food or was happy to see me. Probably was the food.

More than halfway through…

… my holiday now. It feels kind of sad, but at the same time I’ve been having a good time. I really need to get better at taking photos though, because I suspect that my blog posts get a bit boring without any visual aids.

Yesterday I met the boyfriend’s mom for lunch down in the town where she works. I could walk there, since the boyfriend’s apartment is only 10 minutes away or so from the shopping streets. It was nice to have some one-on-one time with his mom, even if I was a bit nervous about it. After all, I’m not awesome at chit chat and rather shy at times. It was nice though, we had a cup of tea and a cake at a little café and just chatted.

In the evening the boyfriend and I went out to a restaurant where we met his best friend and his girlfriend. So, I guess, like a double date? We went to the boyfriend’s favourite restaurant which is a thai place. It was nice, but I have to admit that I liked my started more than my main. So if we go there again in the future (which I suspect we will, it being his favourite and all), I will ask to have my starter as the main. (They apparently do that.)

We had tapas for starters, sharing five of them between the four of us. It was a little bit funny though because I don’t eat seafood and the other girl is vegetarian. But we managed!

It was good to meet his friends, and I don’t think they hated me so.. Yay!

We might see them again on Saturday if the girl is off work and the weather is nice. There was talk of going to the beach, which sounds lovely. I’ve been cooped up a fair bit this week since the boyfriend is working, and I don’t really know what to do when on my own. I could go out and explore, but on some level I’m terrified of getting lost. I may have to save the exploring for when I live here..

Vacation

As you probably know, I’m currently on vacation in the UK, visiting the boyfriend. It’s nice to be away for a little bit. While I managed fairly well during my two weeks alone at the office, it was starting to get a bit much for me – I’m not quite back to being entirely healthy and I still tire quickly. So, now I’m enjoying two weeks off work, with nothing to do.

Which, admittedly, gets a little boring at times. I miss my own stuff when I’m away on vacation. Especially since the boyfriend has to be working (he’s in the midst of a huge project at work, and can’t really get any time off), since it means I’m left on my own a lot. My laptop is with me of course, but it has some… issues. And leaves me unable to do a lot of the things I’d like to do.

On the whole though, my trip is nice so far. I arrived Friday evening, and on Saturday we went to a big yearly family get-together that they apparently try to hold every year. It was both scary and fun, meeting his 30 (or so) closest relatives. I’ve not heard anything back yet that they all hated me… So I guess that’s a good sign?

Other things on the agenda is to go out for a meal with his best friend and his girlfriend. They’re very close, and the boyfriend keeps joking that if B doesn’t approve of me, we’re obviously done. So, no pressure!

We’re also going to go to his parents for dinner on Saturday, and have been considering taking them to the cinema one night. But we’ll see what we end up doing I guess. Might meet his mom for lunch one day while the boyfriend is at work, but have to gain the courage to do so. Don’t get me wrong, she’s lovely and very nice. I’m just not good with chitchat and feel very shy about meeting someone one-on-one. At the same time… If I’m going to move here eventually, it’d be nice to have a good connection with his family.

Well, that’s my random ramblings for now…
