I really DO give the best birthday gifts .. if you are on my GOOD side!
Well, lube my ass and call me Ishmael .. its the weekend! Thank Goddess for that! Not only have I been doing regular work, but I took on two side jobs trying to fix peoples' computers (aka you REALLY should've updated to XP service pack 3 ummmm, FIVE years ago!) and I've been doing peoples' taxes as well. I've also been trying to avoid the stomach bug and sinus infections that pretty much everyone around me has gotten. If I've been pissy or catty toward you, I don't mean you any harm .. trust me! So this weekend will hopefully be a time of rest and relaxation, with the chance that I might actually get some time to caption more thoroughly than I have had in quite some time!
Other than some "lazy" work at work which involved going through a bunch of photo directories and trying to find the right images to fit into our "banner slide show" on the main page, it was a pretty mellow day, so I visited a few TG Blogs to pass the time. Great to see that the quality of captions in general has risen over the last few years to where even "newbies" are producing good solid work. Doesn't seem like there is as much of a learning curve as their used to be, and that means what we do is more accessible to everyone.
Why the lube reference above? Well, if you read JEZEBEL like I do, there is an interesting article about a book that has come out. The article is called, "If You Want a More Thoughtful Boyfriend, Try Pegging Him" which states:
"Want to make straight men better in bed — and better feminist allies? The path may be simple: fuck them up the ass. According to one brand new book, the path to making men more compassionate, appreciative and playful may be straight through their butts."Most of it is claptrap (the book, not necessarily the author of the article) from a person that seems to think most men are still in the neanderthal realm, but it does make the assumption that anal sex is a dominant power trip. I am one to chirp in with, "DUH!" because I can't imagine a scenario where it wouldn't be ... can YOU provide one in the comments section?
Good news for comedy fans in the US. Apparently WHOSE LINE IS IT ANYWAY? is coming back on the air, with both Colin Mochrie and Ryan Stiles on the panel. No word on whether Wayne Brady will be back but Drew Carey will not be the host.
A REMINDER that I DO have a spot where you can ask questions, anonymously if you wish, at the top of the page called, "ASK DEE". Its not formspring, so I am able to keep it on a separate page. I try to answer questions as best I can and I have to check, but I don't think I have any left in the queue.
I really hope that you enjoy the musical pairing I provide with my captions and diatribes. I like to think of them as a bit of wine to accent the caption which is the main course and the focus of each posting. Usually it does have something to do with what I'm talking about, even tangentially.
I might post tomorrow (Saturday) depending on how much I get done in real life and in captioning. That way I will have SOMETHING for you to see over the weekend.
You can find the movie musical this is from, "Devil's Carnival" on Netflix. Its made by the same people who created Repo: The Genetic Opera and has many of the same people in it. Most of the songs are wonderful, including a song by Ivan Moody from Five Finger Death Punch .. and this song just makes me melt like a caramel left on the dashboard of a car in July. Mmmmmm delicious!
