do you chat naked?

I've had a few ideas rumbling around in my head for the last week, about posting a deep and thoughtful entry. I've been ruminating on some things but haven't found a way to tie them up neatly in an article of sorts. I miss contributing to intrepid media - the last submission they had from me was the missing vibrator story. Funny, but entirely too long ago.

As I was browsing the interweb tonight from Adrian's work, I checked my stat counter for the first time this week. I like seeing how many countries find me...and the weird things that people search for that somehow get connected with my site. For instance, some poor soul was searching online for an answer to a question one really and truly needs girlfriends and a big glass of wine to answer. "Do anal numbing lubricants work?" leads the questioner to my anal sex advice post, while another poor soul asked MSN search if they should worry if they "draw a blank on a Managerial Cost Accounting test". Something tells me someone may be changing their major quite soon.

But the best one of all, I do believe, was the shock I got clicking through to I chat naked because they were listed as the actual linking site, according to my stat counter. Not someone clicking through from a search - but an actual site that LINKED ME. and they chat naked, apparently.

Of course I had to check it out. It's only natural to be curious. Plus, seriously...I'm shocked and amazed...and terrified of what I'll find.

Basically, it's a service to talk to other naked people who, assumingly, do naked things. Fun. They submit pictures, and this blog is a running commentary on new or older members, etc. If you click on the link above, you should be brought to their current few posts. I'm the link for 'women's blogs' in the September 27th, 2005 post. If this isn't on the first page by the time you look, there isn't an archiving system, but there is a clicky to see previous posts at the bottom of the page.

On a side note, someone also searched MSN to find 'cute ferret pictures' and visited my site. What a crazy world, eh?

** note - so very sorry about the non-clicky linkage. blogdrive is being a PIECE OF SHIT. i'm really fucking tired of it not working properly. and now www.tokitikki.com isn't working properly, either. so I'm not very happy at all, at the moment. not at all.

more half nekkid madness, albeit a bit late

Sorry for the delay of HNT.  I forgot it was Thursday.  And I didn't get out of bed until 1:00 pm.  And I've been babysitting since 2:00 this afternoon.  You see what time it is now?    Alright then.

My newest submission for the follies that are Half Nekkid Thursday comes with a story in tow.  A story about feeding the seagulls and making new friends.  Namely, we made two new friends.  Gimpy Cecilia and Lenin.  I'll tell you about Lenin later. 

First things first - the submission is this:



Yes, I know.  You hate us.  But we love you!  Adrian and I went for a walk last...was it Saturday or Sunday?  We had some bits of bread left over, which I was determined to feed to a goose or a seagull or a baby seal...it didn't matter, I wanted to feed something.  He humoured me, of course.  And brought his camera.

Gimpy Cecilia accosted us as we ate our street vendor jumbo hot dogs (completely and fabulously delicious, I might add) and drank our coffees from Starbucks.  She screeched at us quite a few times while bobbing her head up and down - imploring us for bites of our food.  I couldn't manage to feed her any of my hotdog (ew, a carnivorous seagull!?) but I fed her extra pieces of the bun.  And then we went and sat on the beach with a bag full of stale bread.

AND WERE SUBSEQUENTLY SURROUNDED BY POOPING, SQUAWKING BIRDS.

It's like those free-loaders can SMELL the thought of giving out food on you.  Insanity.  But fun.  Adrian got some really cool action pictures of the birds while I distracted them with nibbles.  I even put a piece of bread on his shoe to entice them nearer.  I also worked up the courage to 'hand-feed' Gimpy Cecilia.  She ate a piece of crust from my hand, but it freaked her out so bad she flew away.  She may have had her fill, though, as she was monopolizing the pieces I threw to the other birds circling nearby.

Say Hi to Gimpy Cecilia!

hail to the new religion

I hate the fact that I can be so easily caught off guard while I'm eating or drinking. More so when it's oatmeal that I happen to be eating when I read something so funny it makes me burst out laughing.

Cleaning spit out oatmeal off the desk and from my lap is no fun. But better to clean it up than choke to death on it, right?

I'll even be so very nice as to share with you exactly what made me spit out my very, very late night snack:

The Church of the Flying Noodle Monster

I browsed the site, and chuckled quite a few times. Basically, a group of people is petitioning the school board of the state of Kansas (because Kansas makes sense to start with) to consider the teachings of the Church of the Flying Noodle Monster when passing judgement on whether to allow instruction on the theories about Intelligent Design alongside the theories of Creationism and Evolution.

The letter to the school board begins: "I am writing you with much concern after having read of your hearing to decide whether the alternative theory of Intelligent Design should be taught along with the theory of Evolution. I think we can all agree that it is important for students to hear multiple viewpoints so they can choose for themselves the theory that makes the most sense to them. I am concerned, however, that students will only hear one theory of Intelligent Design."

Which is completely understandable. These days, it's hard to say what should or should not be taught in schools because something always manages to infringe upon someone else's rights or beliefs. It's gone so far that the inevitable had to happen: Someone made up a new theory.

What can anyone say - it's just as plausible as any other theory, right? No one was there to witness it, so how do we know for sure? Basically, it's the same question I've asked since bible study in middle school - how can you expect me to believe what can't be proven?

I completely sympathize with those who are arguing for this new doctrine to be taught. Why not? Who's to say what's better? Maybe information overload *is* better - let the intelligent students form their own beliefs and thoughts about it. Let the rest be sheep.

But please, no matter what new or old faith you follow, can we please stop saying 'My God said to kill you because of your beliefs." Because, last I heard, hearing voices doesn't signify God is speaking to you - it means you need some effing massive doses of medication, stat.
