Sometimes living in a small alpine ski town I forget what it’s like to be a chickaroo living in the big cities … but I did live in NYC and Chicago for nearly 20 years and all it took was a few of the stories here to bring it all flooding back to me . . .
Now my main annoyance is the mild sexism we find in Alpine France – guys who won’t let you change the windshield wipers on your car (I bought them and didn’t have time to wait at the garage for them to change them, and they would only let me leave with my purchase after I assured the guy selling me the wipers that my ‘husband’ would change them for me later), change tires by yourself (a flat tire in Provence on a small side road with me and a girlfriend changing the tire brought a quick stop from 2 guys who took over and changed it for us, overtightening the bolts pretty amazingly but all in all, at least they got their hands dirty instead of me) or measure the air pressure on my tires (yeah, I had a guy stop and get out of his car to take this job over for me too).
Hardly a big deal since they genearlly seem to have no problem letting me take the lead on rock climbs …
Bad spellers of the world, untie and welcome to my blog!
Peruse this blog and occaisionally you will find references to sex, plus lots of personal whining and radical wing politics that should be good for your soul. As you can see, I now feed a wide range of literary desires . . .
I always get a kick out of viewing my bitter blog’s stats and seeing the search terms that people use to find it. Most of them (99%?) are sex related searches and so I have not put those most commonly used sex terms here … I’d say about 95% of people who search for sex are using one rather bland phrase of ‘hot sex’. A lot of them are also misspelled searches (hot to make a climbing rope?). And I am now getting hundreds of hits a day on my red herring post about hot sex making you fat. This pleases me to no end, because it does indeed seem that they go on to read other entries in the blog.
I guess like many people who think all they want is sex, empty sex in and of itself is just not enough. It’s much more fun to feel wanted and desired. Barring that – it’s more fun to read someone who is intelligent whining on about sex and throwing in a random clit reference here or there for good measure. Then hitting you with the global warming and overpopulation spiel once they’ve softend you up via elevating your libido.
