Oh, I’ll Be A Good Boy, Please Make Me Well

I hope you have all returned from your Turkey Day coma unscathed. I do love me some Thanksgiving food. As a matter of fact, we had some leftovers last night for dinner. Mmmm, good. Despite my eating hearty, the scale remains unmoved, which is a huge plus. All that walking me and the man are doing must be paying off. It doesn't hurt that it has been so beautiful lately.

I didn't get a thing accomplished this weekend, so it looks to be another busy week for me. Just how I like it. My mind is full of naughty things and they are all crying out to be typed. And, typed hard. . . . Sorry, couldn't resist a little joke there.

So, here's to another Man Candy Monday. Is there really any other way to start the week?

I'm A Leave You With My Number, You Should Hollar At Me

I had an unusual request over the weekend. My niece told me that her husband is a fan of my little old blog, but he wished I'd show less badonkadonk on it. I mean, seriously, half the reason I have this blog is to show the bottoms of gorgeous men. How can I stop that? Even if I wanted to, the public would never allow it. Right?

So, Mark, while I appreciate your coming around to check out the blog, I am sorry to say that the butts aren't going anywhere. I hope you'll still consider stopping by from time to time. Trust me, I won't tell anyone why you're really looking every Monday!!

I Don't Know Her, But She Makes Me Feel Like Roller Skating

In my house, I am known for my crazy dreams. Recently, I had another classic head-scratcher. I am at a roller skating rink, doing my thing, rolling around the oval to the beat of a disco song. The place is packed, but the funny part about it is: no one else is moving. They are on the floor, wearing skates, laughing and talking, but not skating. I keep asking everyone what they are doing, and they keep saying, "Skating. Just like you." They keep saying it, like I'm the one who's crazy. The faster and faster I go around the rink, the more people appear, standing around on wheels. Not moving. I weave all around them, trying to avoid hitting them and they all just watch me, but not moving an inch. Weird, right?

I'm still not quite sure what this might all mean. But, it has really stuck with me. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know.

In the meantime, I'm hoping to change my dream topics with a little Man Candy. Lord knows, I would "roller skate" with this guy anytime. It is shaping up to be another busy week around these parts. How about you?

Some Dancers Who Gave A Good Time

Sometimes, sisters ask you to do things that you don't want to do. And, because you love them, you do it anyway. Things on this list include: changing their kids' diapers, etc.

Other times, they ask you to do things that are easy to agree to, like attend an All Australian, All Male revue entitled Thunder From Down Under. Several months ago, my sister emailed me and said that she wanted to go for her birthday, she had already bought the tickets and it was ON!! How can you say no to an offer like that?

Years ago, before I got married, we all piled into a limo and went to a club in Philly called The Cave and it was a hysterical, laugh-riot of biblical proportions. I expect TFDU to be the same. I can think of no better way to celebrate the fact that my sister is and will forever be 4 years older, than to watch some half-naked guys gyrate for our amusement. And, eat some sinful Italian food and decadent dessert afterwards. Sundays were made for this!

Guess I'll Turn The TV On And See What You Got To Say

If women really are the future of the porn industry, then the Queen of all Media needs to know about it!!

You've gotta love Oprah. After spending an hour with Sarah Palin, she's seen fit to cleanse the American palate with a show all about women and their opinions and feelings about porn and erotica. It should be a great show. In addition to the work of Lisa Ling, who I adore, Oprah is featuring Jenna Jameson and Violet Blue, editor of amazing books including The Smart Girl's Guide to Porn and the Best Women's Erotica series.

I'm very interested to see the discussion, as Violet has had very positive things to say about it on her blog and on Twitter. Set your DVR's everyone. Oprah's talking about the pron!!!

And The Moon Be Still As Bright

It was a fun, yet productive weekend. Had a few drinks, wrote a few things, and laughed my ass off. I've been working a lot, but it's been good. I pushed through my frustrations, my blocks and I wrote some things I'm really proud of. I gave them all a kiss and sent them out into the ether, and I hope they all find good homes.

There was one piece of sad news from the weekend. One of my favorite Australians, Rove McManus is ending his show. He has brought us so much joy and introduced us to the wonders of Hamish and Andy, Hughesy and hot man on man action. Good luck Rove!!

Speaking of the good stuff, Man Candy Monday is always a welcome sight. Here's to a great week.

I Don't Need To Tell You What You Already Know

I've been sent this by a bunch of different people and I thought it was funny enough to share with everyone. This is from the website Left Take. Please to enjoy . . .

Top Ten Reasons To Make Gay Marriage Illegal

1) Being gay is not natural. Real Americans always reject unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2) Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3) Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4) Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn’t changed at all like many of the principles on which this great country was founded; women are still property, blacks still can’t marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5) Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed; the sanctity of marriages like Britney Spears’ 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6) Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn’t be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren’t full yet, and the world needs more children.

7) Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8) Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That’s why we have only one religion in America.

9) Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That’s why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10) Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven’t adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

When I first read this, I thought someone had bugged my house. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. Feel free to comment and add your own reasons.

I Think That It's Time, This Battle Must Be Won

It's been a really busy week. I've been struggling and wading through a million different things. The writing has been progressing slowly; slower than I would like. After a major disappointment early in the week, it was hard to get back into the saddle.

But, the cycle begins again. A fresh, clean slate awaits as does the blank screen waiting to be written on. I can't start my week without a little Man Candy to smooth the transition. Nothing starts the week better than that.

Now, back to the salt mines. These sex scenes aren't going to write themselves.

When We're Free To Love Anyone We Choose, When This World's Big Enough For All Different Views

I was so hoping to be writing a completely different post this morning. But, unfortunately, once again voters have decided that they'd rather listen to Glenn Beck than their hearts.

Maine passed a law last spring that would have allowed gay people to get married, but a ballot referendum on Tuesday has erased that law from the books. Once again, like they did in California, the conservative group The National Organization for Marriage, spearheaded the opposition to the law and managed to convince people that gay people getting married would end the world as we know it.

This decision is especially painful for me, as my husband's entire family lives in Maine, including my brother-in-law and his partner of over 15 years. The first family function I attended was their commitment ceremony in 1997. While it was not a legal union, they are just as married in my eyes, as I am. I've watched a myriad of heterosexual couples fall apart in that time, while they are still going strong. But, according to our government, they are not worthy of the same rights I enjoy.

I just wish that before they step into the voting booth, people could put themselves in some one else's shoes. Imagine if your government told you that you couldn't be with the one you love, that your love wasn't real or equal in the eyes of the country. How hard would you fight to change it? How long would you allow yourself to be treated like a second-class citizen? What would *you* do?

I don't want to preach. I just want people to stop letting themselves be fooled. God doesn't hate anyone. Gay people marrying doesn't make anyone else less married. We are all equal. Someday, we'll live up to our own ideals. Until then, we'll just have to keep fighting.

You Can't Find Me, No Matter Where You Look

I was ever so delighted to see that Hamish and Andy were back on the Jay Leno Show last night. They demonstrated more Ghosting techniques, which is one of the funniest things I've ever seen. Please to enjoy the lastest from Hamish and Andy.

I Struggle For This One, Reach Out For That

Despite my missed balloon flight and a shocking lack of candy, I still managed to have an okay weekend. I got some things accomplished and still enjoyed myself. I went for a walk today, before things got too dark. I really wish we didn't have to turn our clocks back, and make the sun disappear so fast. I will miss the late evening sun, until it returns again in the summer.

In other news, I got one acceptance this weekend and one rejection. I wish I could figure out a way to make rejections less painful to swallow. I know there really is no way to do that; it never gets any easier. It just sucks that one piece of bad news seems to carry so much more weight than any good news I get. The bad guys are always in the back of my mind, waving their hands, reminding me that they are there, ready to ruin my day. No matter how far back I push them, they never let me forget about them. Evil little bastards . . .

But, I remain undeterred. Bumps in the road are to be expected. I just wish they didn't sting so much. I guess that's what Man Candy was made for. Much like time, they truly do heal all wounds. I decided on a classic. David Beckham. That's the stuff.
