Sex and the City

This week I've spent my evenings knitting and renting old seasons of Sex and the City. And let me tell you, yarn is expensive. A scarf worth of velour thread is over $12, but it's worth it since it keeps me off the streets and out of the bars. (I've still only lost 17 lbs and I blame it on Captain and Sprite)

I'm in the middle of season three right now. Miranda (everybody's least favorite New Yorker) got chlmaydia and her doctor suggests she contacts all of her sexual partners to let them know, to stop spreading it around the city.

Yes, I realize chlamydia is curable and in contrast to what you could catch, but she acts like it's just an inconvenience. The girl's been having unprotected sex. Unprotected sex in a city with 6 million people. That's a huge pool of AIDS, herpes, syphilis, chlamydia and the clap (whatever the clap actually is).

What she did make a big deal about, which I thought was pretty normal was her "number."

Forty-two.

No, I am not going to take this opportunity to tell you how much sex (with how many people) that I have actually had, but I will say it's under 42. And yes, I could make a complete list and probably give you at least a first name for every partner. (minus two guys I forgot in college and one "bar guy" with a nice nose)

But by the time I'm in my mid-thirties, I expect to be well over 42. 10+ years is a long time to pass up perfectly satisfying cock in an a weak attempt to prove that I'm not a slut, or in a lame effort to not have to tell a potential husband, which I have yet to meet (and am not especially counting on or even looking forward too), that I could form a small baseball league with my former lovers.

42 in your mid-thirties is sex with a little over 2 people a year. One guy every 6 months.

The show played down a guy requesting that Carrie pee on him, but 42 is suppose to be shocking, or slutty.

crappy charity

My company is really pushy about donating to our designated charity. We have fun events you can participate in, but we're really "encouraged" to donate via payroll deduction.

The newest coospondence from my boss.

The pledge forms for the annual {crappy charity} are available for you to print, complete and submit. The {crappy chairty} helps those in need right here in our community, and I encourage you to participate in the fundraising effort. {crappy chairty} offers a number of ways for you to donate and allows you to designate how to use your contributions. Please visit the {crappy chairty} link on the Intranet for more information. If you would like to continue making the same payroll deducted contribution you made last year, you need to complete the form. Even if you choose not to donate, we need you to complete and submit the form. You can access the pledge form at this link. If you have any questions about the pledge form, contact either {crappy charity contacts}, this year's campaign chair and co-chair, respectively.

No pressure ...

court and a homeless woman

I went to court. The cop called the girl who hit me so she was there too. (my mom overheard her and her mother there talking). I assumed that meant the nasty cop was there also. One trial in a single 12 month period is enough for me. I took the supervision.

I saw one of former residents from the homeless shelter there. I like her and was glad she said hello.

She did not ask for money.

Mor complaints to come ...

a little late

I have two weeks to get everything together and apply for (free!) grad school if I want to start in the spring.

I can try to create a personalized program, combining various journalism/writing/communication classes, and just pay for the ones geared toward English out of pocket, or get all free comm ones to get an MA in comm and worry about how it correlates to my future plans, well, in the future.

Or I can just take some wussy comm classes for "fun." (also free)

Otherwise I have to wait until summer.

In real life, I want to move, go to a real school with a real writing program, take out more loans and live in a box.

But I don't have the stomach for that right now.

Which would YOU recommend?

trivia night

We're having a trivia night at work on Friday, October 14th.

It's $10/person, the money goes to charity. I need at least 6 people for a team. It looks like I would need your $10 by Thursday the 14th.

Who's interested??
