The best part about getting to head to work a little later everyday (10) is that my commute takes me downtown and I get to be a part of the morning hustle and bustle. Its good to feel a part of your city.
Going to see John this time was one of the more important steps in our crazy long distance relationship....
- I met his mom and brother, even got to see the awesome baby pictures! I can totally see where john gets some of his mannerisms, and I now know for a fact, he has been smiling since birth.
- I went to the Rock (what they call the apt), and in one night I met almost every currently influential friend of John's. I dashed a bit of charm and I don't think I'm the stranger danger boyfriend anymore.
- We finally had a joyous hiccup. I finally felt like the scary honeymoon period was over,,, that part of a relationship where you are blinded by love and good feelings that he can do no wrong. Thats a great feeling but so much can be hid under the bliss. It wasn't a fight, wasn't a misunderstanding... It just felt like something normal happened, and it was handled so well; I think it stregthened us.
Yea, and this stupid owl... stupid lame owl, just hanging out in the pouring rain by John's old place. His mum must have given up on him and left him to the elements... must have been pretty FAIl to get ditched by mum....
Ok, so i'm not a teen, and sex ed for me in HS consisted of me filling out a worksheet, then being excused so I could run around the campus fixing computers. That was my out for gym class too, worked like a charm. It wasn't so much that I wasn't fit, or didn't want to work out, I just hated my health/gym teachers and didn't like the hassle in the locker room. The Midwest Teen Sex Show was created to help teens get a little more out of sex ed then whats spit out in state sanctioned curriculum. And unlike more conservative methods, MTSS realizes teens are gonna screw no matter what if they put their heads and labias together, so why not give em the truth. Hosted by the ever beautiful (and fellow bear lover, for a girl at least) Nikol, and supplemented by a cast of nutballs (read: geniuses), the MTSS is as entertaining as it is informative. If you have a kid, or know a kid, or even know a few parents, send them the link to the free subscription on iTunes. I sat and watched all the episodes at once, stunned by how amazing and ridiculous the approach was to sex education by MTSS. Slipping in serious facts admist satirical comments about STI's and pedophiles, teens might actually learn something. The videos are mature to a certain level, but hey, its a sex ed podcast, shouldn't it be just a little bit edgy? A bt about the cast (from MTSS)
Get your Squash-plush toys while they’re still fresh off the tarmac. Twitch the Raccoon was the first to be scraped off the road. But now there’s a new not-so-cuddly toy in town. His name is Grind the Rabbit. The first 1000 Grind characters are all limited edition. Each one has a personalised toe tag, handwritten by the creator. All of them have limited edition numbers. It took Adam, the creator, 7 long nights to finish all those tags, and caused him severe tendonitis. It’s not that we’re trying to emotionally blackmail you. Just buy one.
Frank Kozik has always tailored to the higher end vinyl art scene with his extremely limited busts of political icons, twisted in subtle ways. The busts are typically vinyl or fiberglass, often flocked, and sell for about 300 bucks each. This time, Kozik, is releasing the first bust under his Ultraviolence line, a line meant only for the deep pocketed. Meant to connect Alex from Stanley Kubrick's A Clockwork Orange with his love Of Beethoven, Ludwig features a bowler cap and will be finished as a bronze mold, set upon a pedestal of marble. While the price isn't set, expect this very limited run (only 20) to set you back at least $3000. But I'm sure after a wee night full of ultraviolence, you could come up with that much cash, eh?
