So I’ve been thinking lately about my “love life” or whatever else I can call it that doesn’t sound as stupid as “love life”. I’m realizing more and more that I have attachment issues. It’s no secret that I am fairly liberated sexually, but my problem is that if I have feelings for someone, I’m less willing to sleep with them. And I don’t really know why. Mostly because of some sort of antiquated conditioning that a relationship dare not be based on sex, I’d assume. Whatever. Anyway. I was looking at a picture of someone I had hooked up with in the past who I got very emotionally attached to. He lives in Australia (Melbourne) so nothing will ever happen between us but nonetheless we talk and flirt all the time and talk about couple things. He was making out with some other dude and I got jealous. I’m so mad at myself about it. Then I got to thinking about it. I do this all the time.
I feel terrible for him. Like, this is physically painful. His retirement savings were all in subprime mortgage-backed bonds and he needed the cash and he feels just as embarrassed about this whole arguing-with-a-chair thing as everyone watching him. Later this evening he’s going to go home and sit in the dark with a blanket covering his head and body and eat a can of tuna while crying. Oh goodness I can’t watch anymore.
This is too perfect. I could only watch like two minutes; it was too painful, even before the chair.
A Baltimore County lawmaker wants a Baltimore Ravens linebacker to sack his public support for gay marriage.
Ravens linebacker and special teams ace Brendon Ayanbadejo is offering up two tickets to the teams’ season opener to someone who donates to a group supporting Maryland’s same-sex marriage law. The law was petitioned to referendum by opponents, and voters will decide same-sex marriage’s fate on Nov. 6.
Del. Emmett C. Burns Jr., D-Baltimore County, has a problem with Ayanbadejo’s involvement with the campaign.
In a letter to Ravens owners Steve Bisciotti, Burns wrote it was “inconceivable” that a Ravens player would “publicly endorse same-sex marriage.” Burns said many of his constituents are “appalled and aghast that a member of the Ravens football team would step into this controversial divide and try to sway public opinion one way or the other.”
“I believe Mr. Ayanbadejo should concentrate on football and steer clear of dividing the fan base,” Burns wrote. “I am requesting that you take the necessary action, as national football franchise owner, to inhibit such expressions from your employee.”
Fuck this guy too.
Seriously, Baltimore? Donating to MDers for Marriage Equality again right now because of this.
WHAT national security advantage?! People act like working with other countries and shit ISN’T the only place where the POTUS has any real power. Go ahead. See how long we last with Penis and Douchebag at the helm.
“So Todd I got an offer for you. You and me. Any time. Any place. Debating science mano- a-mano. I’ll bring the facts, and you bring the Vaseline. Because your ass is gonna fucking need it when I’m done whipping.”—Bill Nye the Science Guy
“I had constant orgasms for four days… I thought I was going mad. Other women wonder how to have an orgasm — I wonder how to stop mine.”—
Doctors diagnosed Kim Ramsey, 44, with Persistent Genital Arousal Disorder, or PGAD. Ramsey, a nurse and recent U.K. transplant, reports that even the tiniest movement can bring her to climax — and it’s not nearly as enjoyable as it sounds.
“Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life”—
I have this hanging on my wall because it’s something I have to remind myself everytime I start freaking out about my future.
Y’all know that Fox News can’t be on television in Canada because it’s against the law here to call things news if they aren’t factual, right? They tried to get an affiliate here and it was blocked because they are making shit up.
