Congrats on the promotion. Tbr, interesting! Should I flash you my boobs if you look out your office window? No, wait. How inappropriate. Instead you'll see an almost 54 year old woman saying SQUEEEEE b/c she suddenly turned into a kid again. I may even skip now that my creaky knees are better! A graphic artist I follow (was one of his first fans to buy his first book) has an extended version of his first volume, and with an order, he did a watercolor of whatever you wanted (a character such as a Ninja Turtle, etc) and I said I wanted either Eeyore or Batman and he combined the two into a great characature! I love it. Can't wait to get it. Gina (giddy tonight...I know I'm writing non stop)

No, sorry, it's not an anal sex thread. In posting and reading posts in the Song To Suit Your Mood thread, I thought it might be fun to post about specific songs and the stories behind them, a la Story Behind the Picture thread. You Sexy Thing, My brother and family were visiting when we lived in Ohio, and he fell asleep on the floor after driving 12 hours. A Burger King commercial came on, and it played that song and my brother (very redneck) woke up and immediately sang along! I cannot hear that song w/o laughing.

Hubby's childhood favorites include a devil's food cake (from scratch of course) with cherries in it. And always chocolate milk. His favorite food though, is Korean bulgogi and kimchee. The Japanese restaurant we ate at last night had the best gyoza he said he's had since leaving Japan. There is a local pizza place in my Ohio hometown and when I go to visit I always have to have some. It's the best, nostalgic taste I know. And my dad would "let" me sit on the crank ice cream maker while making homemade ice cream, once it thickened and was harder to turn. And no, I wasn't very heavy then at all.

When we went to the big rodeo in Feb, we saw a VERY drunk mother driving and she got pulled over right out of the parking lot (thankfully she didn't get to venture farther). Three young kids in the back seat, none in seatbelts. The cops had her do a sad looking sobriety test, and she couldn't even stand on two legs, much less one. At any rate, she was taken away, but I wondered what happened to the kids? It's around midnight, and what do they do, do they take them to the police station? What an example for a mom. Lots of crazies. We NEVER drink and drive. Ever. One of the few times I can say nothing will ever waver on that topic.

Kibbles, that was my dad's bedtime snack (not always buttermilk though), eaten with a spoon out of a pastel Tupperware tumbler. Remember those? My go to comfort food is usually a grilled cheese sandwich and tomato soup, and you have to kind of smash the sandwich with a spatula. What brings back my mom and my aunts? PB and banana sandwiches. Aunt smooshed to together as a spread, Mom sliced the banana. And banana pudding, or chocolate pies cooking on top of the stove. I make them now, but not often. Gina

I get it. And while this may or may not stir up a hornet's nest, cities with military bases are usually the most racially mixed, as I've seen the military be a great equalizer of people. (no, I'm not going to start a gender "thing" here...I'll save that for the political threads). Explains VA and other areas with a majority of interracial unions. We don't think twice about it. And we are still surprised, like we were at dinner once, that there are still people who frown (literally!) on mixed race marriages.

Finger use in the vagina.

All sorts of touch is just great. And a variety. Mr. Sexus told a group of friends that no one has ever fisted me and he's right. Every so often we'll meet someone who makes it some sort of goal to make me "squirt." Not happening. But I like much better the ones who just touch me like I'm a fine guitar to be played. Or a piece of clay. Intricacies of touch. Some guys are masters at it, like my husband is with me (and several other women), and some guys are kind of fumbly and a too rough. There is something to be said for a thumb inserted in me though. I don't know why, but it feels great.

And back on track with the numbers. Yesterday was miserable, as for dinner we went to a Tex Mex place with friends and while I only ate about half my meal, I still felt icky and full. I no longer like that feeling. Satisfied yes. Stuffed no. Congrats on the weight loss and bettering yourself. It's encouraging. G.

NewtoThis, welcome. I totally agree with your post, and I said very much the same thing over the weekend. I don't feel I have a set "type." Certainly sexiness is relative. Some are quite sexy in the way they handle themselves, way they look, way they look AT me, what they say, portray, way they speak. Intelligent humor almost always gets me. Even sometimes just silliness, depending on mood. If he can "read" me, he can probably "lead" me. Good with his hands, stamina, not taking any of this too seriously. Confidence. Consideration. Able...in other words, doesn't have to ask too many questions or is fumbling around. Have met couples where my husband and I were attracted to the wife, but a bit ambivalent about the husband until we got to know him better. What my eyes behold certainly will play a part, but if my eyes just see a normal guy, neither "hot" or necessarily "sexy looking," and he is not Unattractive (because that doesn't seem to work out either), then my brain can see for me, and sexual encounters then become quite enjoyable. Turn on my brain. The rest of me dutifully follows. Initial eye contact, attractiveness (can mean a lot of things at any given time...I can better say what I feel is Unattractive). So, in a word, yes. Gina

Thank you for all the encouraging, uplifting posts regarding my dad. It does help and we've found in all our years on here, that there are some genuinely caring people whom have become good friends. And some just through posts, and that's okay too. Some of the nicest people have been our swinger friends. When we moved, our Tuesday night group in VA threw us a going away party, complete with silly presents. None of our neighbors or "vanilla" friends did as much, so we were humbly surprised by the caring. It may be a matter of being able to be more open and honest with some of our swing friends (not everyone, of course), that sets the stage for friendship beyond the sex. Okay, blah blah blah...since giving up candy for Lent, I think I've become more sentimental, or needing some sweetness in my life...ha. FB: a chunk of money going to the IRS today. Bleh.

New scale weighs us about 3.5 pounds more than the old one. This shouldn't matter. So, we went back and bought a higher end scale that also measures body fat, etc. Gluttons for punishment, maybe, but no longer gluttons. I know, I know. The numbers should not matter. I'm liking our progress, however slowly it happens. Last night Mr was on the bed with 4 other people and me and I looked at him and thought, DAYUM, he's got the best looking body of all. And more stamina. I guess that should be in the HAPPY thoughts segment...haha. I'm rambling. Blah blah blah. Another Bitch: movie popcorn. I like it, but I feel lousy after I eat it.

It's really fun to trade clothes with friends and find that sizes are really strange, because what might fit one of us poorly, may look amazing on someone else. Did that a few weeks ago, and again last night with a couple friends. We have very different body types, but we still could fit in and look good in each other's castoffs. I highly recommend doing this with a group of giggling girlfriends. And of course the guys enjoyed our modeling too.

Someone help me pick a decent scale! Our old digital one weighs us a few pounds less than a new one we bought. So, while we still have the same amount of weight loss, bleh, I don't like the number. It's 170. But I did have to go shopping for new shorts. Size 14 petite. Sure beats other sizes I've been! And some misses 14's were too big! Yay! Getting there SLOWLY, but still getting there.

My dad, who is temporarily in a nursing home initially to go through rehab for his foot, is unresponsive to any communication. They sent him for MRI, CTscan and other tests, and sadly, he is in the last stages of dementia/Alzheimer's. Low brain function. Hospice was suggested for him, but my brother and I are working to get him into his state VA hospital by the end of the month. I can't call him. I can't send him anything. He has no understanding of a phone, and can no longer read cards, etc. All we can do now is hope his last days are as comfortable as possible (and by "last days," it could be up to two years). Life is too short, even at his advanced age, for me to get caught up in any sort of negativity. That's why I refuse to. My dad was a hard man, and quite hard on me, but I still love the man and consider him my hero. It's sad to me to see his decline. I know a lot of you have gone through this type thing already, especially those who are "my age." I respect and honor what you each have gone through in caring for and about aging parents. That role reversal thing is not easy. Hold close those you hold dear. Let the others go. Gina

Nicely done Scott! Jinx, as per Jonny Lang, I've seen him twice as well: Once on the River in Memphis, outdoor concert, and once at a small standing only venue in Norfolk, VA. Both times amazing. Intense, talented, just all around awesome. As per zodiac signs, I'm a true Gemini and hubby is a Sagitarius, for whatever that's worth. No idea if we're supposed to be compatible or not, but we are:)

I'm a big baby as far as going to the dentist, and I've only had one small cavity when I was 34, but have had to have crowns, etc. It's bad. And the staff at the dentist we go to, including the dentist himself, is very kind and gentle with me, even though I still pretty much panic. Mr? He's an alien when it comes to pain of any kind. He just had a deep pocket cleaning and asked for NO NOVACAIN. The man is a freak. He falls asleep too. He jumped once and the hygienist asked did she hurt him and he laughed and said, No, it tickled. Bleh. I've had nitrous only once, and it certainly helped. Okay, back to the eyes. I haven't made my appointment yet. But I will. Good luck to Mrs. SA today. G.

Count me in. I know I could go. It's weird how that's been on my mind to do lately! I was laying out in the sun for a bit yesterday, listening to blues (Jonny Lang) and thinking along those lines. I've never been too interested in a cruise, but I'll take a beach getaway any day. So, that's a happy thought indeed. Gina

Kudos to all of you who have quit smoking! Mr still is cutting down little by little, but I think when he is actually ready to quit, he'd be the type to do so cold turkey. I hope so anyway. In 2006 he began smoking only outside, so that was a big relief to me. I tried it at age 17, thankfully hated it, and never picked up that habit. Good luck to all of you. I've really nothing to bitch about today either!

I do enjoy it. It really depends on technique and being able to "read" the woman's responses. Just as there are certain ways a woman can give you guys a "hand job," there are a lot of guys who can really get me off manually. I actually prefer that to oral, but that's just me.

Mr and I both gained 2 pounds over the long weekend w/ my brother visiting. Okay, so, not so long ago I would've taken that to mean I "couldn't do it" and use it as an excuse to eat. But not anymore. We're back on track, and will keep progressing, knowing we don't and won't do this perfectly, but proud that we are doing it at all. I currently weigh 167 and Mr. is at 197. I find it very liberating to tell my true weight. Now, about the height..I still really am 5'2" but sls still won't list that as my height. haha.

I hate making a decision that either way there isn't really a happy "ending." Like those "lesser of two evil" kinds of decisions. Sucks all the way around. Also, I really hate it right this minute that I gave up candy for Lent! Chocolate is calling my name! (or maybe that's one of those blessing in disguise things). I don't want to get into another religious debate (God forbid, pardon the pun),but I do give up two things for Lent every year: 1. and external bad-for-my-health thing, or something I'm sort of addicted to, like one year potato chips, and 2. and internal personal thing that is bad for my spirit thing. It has never been a religious thing, it's more a self-discipline thing. But I hope there's a Godiva truffle or a Dove Bunny in my Easter Basket this year! And maybe the pear Jelly Belly beans that have been sitting on the shelf tempting me for two months. I'm not Candy-deprived enough to ever eat a Peep though...I do have some standards. LOL Gina

Thank you everyone! I take everyone's experiences with it under advisement. Mr. Sexux had it done some years back and has always been happy with it. Started needing readers about a year ago (when he turned 50!) if it's dark in the room, etc. I had eye surgeries as a baby and small child, so we'll see. As it is now, I can't even read the big E. I'm supposed to call and make a consult appointment this week hopefully for some time in May. It's still scary, but not as much so since you guys have all posted. Thanks again

Mr told me yesterday to go ahead and make a consult appointment. Kind of nerve wracking, but then I figured my eyes can't get any WORSE, right? Does anyone know how allergens affect lasik eyes afterwards? Thanks.

Petals, there have always been people in here who amusingly stir things up and have fun. But they do so in intelligently sarcastic ways, and those of us who have equal or higher intelligence see through it and play along. Sadly for you, your attempt does not come across that way. My opinion. Others with your mentality will find fun in it. I choose not to. G.

Mr. Sexus retired from USAF after 20 years and went right back into serving his country and continues to do so now. Nowhere and in no way does he ever feel the need or desire or inclination to be so loudmouthed and know-it-all in a sex forum, disrespectful, hypocritical, or just plain rude. I will never comprehend the "in your face" attitudes or what they hope to accomplish here. If it's to alienate people with whom you may have once had an attraction, then you've accomplished your goal. If it's to show your true colors, then you've managed that as well. Being louder than others doesn't mean you are right and they are wrong. I am thankful now that we will not have the chance to meet. We have had enough brutish people in our lives, and life is too short to add any further. If you think that blasting people with all caps insults shows your intelligence in any discussion, you are sadly mistaken, and quite wrong. You're just being a bully. The best we can do with that/those, is to ignore them. I've known Sed for years now, and I can guarantee that she has never once had her ass handed to her. She is sitting in amusement that she has gotten you to be so worked up over her. The same way I sit in amusement when people become obsessed with something I've done or said, yet think I am instead obsessed with them. As FF would have said, Peace Out, Dude. Gina

I was going to state what FunAhoy stated below. Jesus even condemned an olive tree to no longer bear fruit. And money changers who were defiling the temple. And those who boasted about their righteousness, their piety. Okay, I think that's going to be all from me on this, but it's fun debating. Gina

hahahaha. Good one, VA. Now I supposed someone will create a whole new denomination from that. ;) Since when has anyone received an actual answer to a question here? Yours may be the very first! It's either creative non-fiction or historical fiction, or whatever you want to deem it. The sad thing is that there are so many people that feel they have to believe every single word is undeniable truth. When there are stories that are just stories, parables, fables, etc. That's where you have to be willing to research. There are contradictions, etc. Someone once told me to use it as a mirror, to reflect back to yourself your life. I don't know. Sometimes there are things in it that bring peace, or calmness, sometimes reads like an action/adventure story. Sometimes a love song. Sometimes an admonition, and so on. Whatever you want/need to get from it, you can. Boy, that sounds vague and tolerant. LOL Gina
LASIK eye surgery

What is blended procedure? Is that one eye for up close and one for distance? Tell Mrs. SA I'll be thinking of her and wishing her well with it. I also can't even see the big E, and still am on the fence, but climbing over to the side of lasik. I'm a little scared of it, but figure my eyes are so bad, they really couldn't be any worse. I've worn glasses since age 2, and contacts several years, now I'm back to mostly glasses b/c they're just more comfortable, but my vision is terrible. Had several eye surgeries as a child. I'd love to see the notes on sheet music better (again), and not strain my eyes so much reading. I'm going to look into it this summer. There's a very good, well respected lasik doc here that would love to help my eyes. I took a friend to get hers done, and he was insistent that he could help mine, and called his whole office staff over to view a quick exam of my eyes. Yeah, I guess they're that uniquely bad! haha. (I was supposed to be blind as a baby) Does that mean if I get lasik, I may change my swing preferences to be more strict on appearance b/c I'll actually be able to see your faces? Hehehe Good luck to all of you who are having procedures done. Gina

While I didn't read all the posts below, I do enjoy this type of discussion. As for the concept of God, I was raised in a fundamentalist S.Baptist home and church, and innately didn't believe all I was taught, BUT I did grow up believing in a God that was harsh, rigid, punishing and rule-oriented. No way could I ever hope to measure up. What I learned later, is that God can be anything you need him (her, it) to be. Do you need a loving father? Do you need forgiveness? Do you need a friend? We can plug God into any empty space in our lives, if that's how we choose to live. I had to change my concept of God into something more useful and meaningful in my life. I have a need to be loved unconditionally. Does God "cause" or "allow" suffering in this world? That's always up for grabs. I don't really know. The jealousy mentioned usually refers to God wanting the people, nation, individual to remain faithful to Him only, to worship Him only, to have nothing and no one else before Him. That can be seen as loving, or it can be seen as restricting and possessive. Depends on your own personal experiences which viewpoint you see. Is it because he loves and wants to take care of us? Or because he wants to punish us for disobedience. In a way, you can compare it to sub/Dom life. Do you put yourself completely in your partner's hands because you trust him and he loves you and would never hurt you and knows what's best? Or do you put yourself into his hands because you fear him? I've lived in both these experiences, and I will have to say that I am more willing and able to put myself into someone's hands whom I trust to love and take care of me, the way I trust and love my husband now. It's very similar in concept, if you can think deeply enough. Religion has very little to do with Spirituality. I've studied both the Old and New Testaments and have read the Bible through more than once. Use the History books in the Bible as such. The Kings, Numbers, etc., The Chronicles, are all recorded history. There's an excellent breakdown of chapters in the Bible, study that out. Poetry, wisdom, history, prophecy, letters, notations, records, Jesus' life and teachings, and so on. It wasn't written so that people can pull out a verse or two and make a whole religion from it(them). Or an agenda. It's a good guide. My beliefs are personal and internal. If you like to sit and discuss faith, etc., then I certainly will do so. But I will never impose my beliefs on anyone. I do like an intelligent and respectful conversation about such though. I think it's wise and will be even more fulfilling, to read through the Bible before you go back to your Promised Land, Sed. It may make that trip even that much more memorable for you. It's added depth to your practical understanding of the land and its people. I wish you safe and incredible travels. I'd love to sit and talk with you more about this whole thing. Gina

Since I've often been the oldest woman in the room, it's kind of practical we gravitate towards young 'uns. But we don't actively "seek" anyone. If there's an attraction, there's an attraction and we go from there.
