I smoked a bit of weed and went dressed up to the NYC street Halloween parade with my roommates and a bunch of friends. We ended up in alphabet city trashed off our arses in some dark bar filled with storm troopers. We then proceeded to move the party on home to our apartment. The party didn't end until late Sunday afternoon.
It was one interesting weekend full of weed, booze, transvestites and sex.
I need a caffeine fix in the mornings or I am virtually useless.
I'd like to say that I'm healthy and drink tea in the mornings - But those days are long gone. Mostly because tea just can't give me the oomph I'm looking for to head out for a long day in Manhattan. My fiance and I generally part ways around the same time for work/lectures - So we go to this little natural market by our apartment and get monstrous sized coffees. I prefer iced, with a dash of soy milk and no sugar/additives.
That behemoth coffee will keep me going until about mid-day in which I generally don't need too much, so I'll then opt for possibly some tea, or maybe another smaller iced coffee. It really all depends on where I am and what is available to me. Generally that's coffee.
I have heard of it - And I do check back and read them from time to time. Some make me laugh, some make me feel sorry.
When I was living with an ex a couple years ago, I sent in a secret (mostly just out of curiosity to see if it would get put up) that basically admitted to me faking losing my virginity to said boyfriend, as well as admitting having slept with 23+ men previous to him. The secret was true, and it actually was not much of a secret to anyone else. Needless to say, he found it in the mailbox when he was checking and it had not been picked up yet.
I had quite a bit of explaining to do.
Despite my experience with it, I think it's a great concept. Virtually every secret on there is just that - A secret. No one will really ever know it's you unless you have a distinct marking you choose to put on it that is recognizable, and even that would be your fault to choose to put said distinct mark on it.
To be blunt, I'm not much generally into relationships. I don't look for much other than "fun". That can encompass a lot of things. Wild rampant sex and booze, don't call me because I won't call you. That may sound reckless or distasteful to some, but to each his(or her in this case) own. It's all about experimenting to see what suits you.
That being said, I am in a relationship! How hypocritical. When I choose to actually have something with a semi-permanent basis, I will simply put "stimulation". You can interpret that any way, really. Whether it be intellectual stimulation, physical stimulation, laughter, you name it. It just has to be something that will catch my interest. I won't set a bunch of guidelines a person has to fit in order to catch my fancy, it's more the overall feel I get from the presence. I like someone who I can relate to, but at the same time is mostly different from me. That way, the relationship can thrive with me and said partner constantly learning new things about one another and always having something to talk about. I love to debate (note: this does not mean argue). If I'm engaged in a heated debate with inductive/deductive justifications being thrown around, nothing turns me on more than that.
Attraction matters fully, but it's subject to personality influence. But mostly, if you can't rev my engine, I can't be in a relationship with you - Simple as that. That may sound petty, but it's not. Sex is a major factor in relationships for me, and if it's lacking in some form then the relationship just isn't as fulfilling.
Now that I got that out of the way, when it comes to friends I can't really even describe it. I get along with pretty much everyone. I like variety. I get along with someone with similar interests usually just as well as someone with differences I can learn from. I could name off all the general cliche things everyones saying, but at the same time I'm not going to judge someone based on if they aren't perfect.
Personally, I've never been too too big on Valentines day purely because it gives people an excuse to be romantic, when they should be regardless of what day of the year it is. My fiance and I treat most days as the standard person treats Valentines day. When he comes home he always brings me roses/various other flowers even though I don't think that's necessary. We surprise one another will little gifts all the time. We don't feel obligated to, it's just how we are.
I'll now contradict my feelings of the unimportance of Valentines day by saying this year we will be celebrating it. I did a bit of shopping in Manhattan yesterday for the event (I'll leave the items in my shopping bag to the imagination).
I must admit though, it will be hard to make this day any more romantic than the norm. If every day in itself is a dream in that sense, then what can you do to top it?
To be honest, I rarely ever snack. When I do, it's more of just motivation to keep my metabolism up, but I don't really get hungry in between meals.
When I do, though - I usually put yogurt into an ice cube tray in the freezer, if I need to keep my metabolism going, or simply feel a little hungry, I just pop a couple out and have that. Even something so small and light can tide me over, as I said it really isn't about hunger in my case.
[quote name='Lunox'][font="trebuchet ms"] Why do you not support Hilary Clinton? I know that sounds defensive, but I'm not trying to be aggressive... I legitimately want to hear reasons because I'm curious as to why many people don't like her, other than "she gives me a bad vibe". [/font][/QUOTE]
There's a couple key differences, depending on what your beliefs are...
One is that Hillary wants to allows individual states to decide if they want to acknowledge same sex couples who are married in other states. Obama wants to make void DOMA.
Another important issue that a lot of people are being torn between... Is the fact that Obama is a fresh, clean slate. Hillary on the other hand owes many favors. Political/Military favors, that is. Many see that as a major flaw, and think it will hinder her in being able to make way in her own uninfluenced change of directions.
I'm not going to go too much into the topic, as I'm not here to start a debate about this. I see strong aspects in both candidates. I personally, am for Obama. However, I don't think Hillary would be a bad choice either. Either being elected (which it seems the race is going to come down to them neck in neck), is going to be a change for the better.
I would be a little less vague, but I've had a decent amount of alcohol this evening and I don't want to say anything I'm going to regret, haha.
[quote name='Lunox'][font="trebuchet ms"] Um... South Carolina has the biggest black population, and like 40% of the Democratic caucus will be made up of black people. I really think Obama has a huge chance of winning the caucus. lol[/font][/QUOTE]
[quote name='James'][font=franklin gothic medium]
I just wonder if an Obama/Clinton president/vice president ticket is the way to go. That is, if the pair can get along. :catgirl:[/font][/QUOTE]
Obama made it quite clear that that is not going to happen, regardless of the outcome. He stated very sternly that he is running for president, and not vice president. I don't think he'd settle for that position to be honest with you. My best friend moved to Chicago and works for him at his base, and she pretty much confirmed this.
As for the other way around, and her being his vice president - I also don't think that is going to happen.
[quote name='Jeebs'][COLOR="Navy"]I don't think prostitution is illegal necessarily because it's considered immoral (although I'm sure that it has something to do with it), but because it helps spread STDs. I've heard several people say that that's a risk that both parties agree to take, but I don't think you're thinking about it enough.
I disagree with that purely because say that it was legal. I'm sure that it would be a lot more regulated. Prostitution businesses would have certain criteria to follow, which would probably be along the lines of daily testing. Kind of like a health code.
[B]EDIT:[/B] Not to say that regulation would completely wipe out the possibility of STDs, but I'm sure it would be better than it is now.
It isn't going to be godzilla, which was my first thought upon seeing the trailer. However, I believe the concept is going to be very similar.
JJ Abrams noted:
[I][B]"We saw all these Godzilla toys, and I thought, we need our own monster, and not King Kong, King Kong's adorable. I wanted something that was just insane and intense."[/B][/I]
Regardless, it is going to be a monster of some sort attacking the city. There is no specification as to where it comes from (space, the sea, etc) but from the teaser cover image, there are tracks leading from the sea.
To be honest, I'm pretty excited about seeing it, and I don't even want to figure out what it is before then.
A lot has been said here that I would like to address, however what stuck out most to me from skimming this thread is the use of "[B]respectable[/B]".
No, prostitution is not respectable. But is a lawyer who defends a guilty client respectable? Maybe in presentation... But by no means respectable beyond the exterior.
Now, I may not agree with prostitution, but I also don't agree with the ignorant throwing around of "no skill", "easy way out", etc. Do you people honestly think prostitution is the easy way out? It is by far not an easy job. Selling your body, your dignity an your pride day in and day out to a number of clients is not easy. Retail is easy. Prostitution is not. Not everyone drops out of college because they want to. Some people can't afford it, some people have other factors in their lives that prevent them from receiving a proper education. If on their own, most jobs that only require a GED or whathaveyou don't pay enough to support an apartment/house, food on the table, and electricity. Some may turn to prostitution simply because it pays the bills, where most other jobs won't.
[quote name='AzureWolf']I think you are missing the depth of their statements. Indifference is the worst, cruelest thing you can do to a human being. You completely shun their relevance and existence. Ergo, love is just the opposite, where you worship their relevance and acknowledge their existence far more than any other emotion allows. The rest of the emotions/feelings/whatever are just gradients in this spectrum. When you hate someone, they still have acknowledgement from you. You still do "something" towards them. There is a connection, even if it is a bad one. Indifference is no connection. Love is complete connection. Sort of like that...
There's a famous saying... Something about it's better to feel a pin prick than to feel nothing at all? Someone help me out here?[/QUOTE]
I am so sorry! I haven't been here in ages so I had no idea there was someone on here called indifference. Man, I need to catch up.
