Being Touchy

8 Jul

Touching can be a great way to communicate and it can be especially important when you are flirting. Personally, I have a very bad habit of being touchy and handsy and I often forget that personal space even exists. There are so many different types of touches, I find myself disregarding any specific meanings these touches might have, and in turn, I don’t even bother trying to figure out what one might mean when I am the receiver. I’m especially bad with leg touches.

Are you touchy? How do you feel when other people are touchy to you? How do you feel (read: interpret) when someone touches your leg? 

Sleep Talking

3 Jul


I recently watched a video of a guy explaining his recordings of his voice while sleeping. Some of the things he said while asleep were quite entertaining, so I downloaded the app to record myself and see what I say! Unfortunately, I have a problem. I can’t actually bring myself to record.

I know it seems silly, but I’m worried about what I’ll hear on the playback. What if I hear voices or sounds that don’t belong to me? What if I start speaking in tongues or something crazy? What if by random chance I hear the sounds of someone trying to get into my apartment?

The thought of any of those is scary to me, and I’m definitely one who prefers not to know. If I don’t know, I can’t psych myself out.

Have you ever recorded video or audio of yourself while you slept? What did you find? Are you interested in recording yourself? Do you worry about these things, and what would you do if you caught something crazy?

What Would Heaven be Like?

3 Jul


Just humor me for a second. Lets all assume that heaven exists.

Personally, I don’t believe in heaven or hell (especially as they are traditionally believed), but I’ve often thought that if they did exist, heaven would be designed as a place that is personally most desirable. I like to think of mine as a serene, quiet place filled with nature. Aside from any people or animals that might be there, I picture it to be a warm meadow with a wooded area to one side. Through the meadow runs a slow moving stream, which I can sit next to and dip my feet in if I choose. The sky is vast and blue, and there is a gentle breeze moving through the grass.

Do you think heaven exists as a personal place, or something else? What would your heaven look like?

Pheromones in Perfume

2 Jul

When I had the Slumber Party (see “sex toy party”) a few weeks ago, I ended up able to order a lot of free stuff. I’m not one to use sex toys, so I had a limited option of things to order. One of the items I ended up “purchasing” was a fancy little cologne/perfume item that was infused with pheromones. It smelled good, and I decided to give it a try, considering how short I am on suitors.

I’ve only used it a few days, and I haven’t been in close contact with any males, so I don’t know if it does anything or not.

I’ve always been skeptical of perfumes with pheromones in them. I know pheromones exist, and I wouldn’t be surprised if pheromones existed in humans. There have been a few studies to determine if it exists in humans, and several of them have supported the idea that they do. If we assume they do, then its a logical next step to think that maybe if we wear morepheromones, we will attract people more easily. I don’t whole-heartedly believe that because effect is often lost with the synthesis of chemicals, and because there may be a more delicate mechanism at play.

That being said, I will continue to wear it at any given opportunity. If the pheromones don’t work, it at least still smells nice. Smelling nice usually works in your favor, regardless.

Have you ever used cologne or perfume with pheromones in it? Do you think they made you more attractive? Do you think that its possible they could have the desired effect?

I’m a Whole Lot of Crazy

1 Jul


I have to admit…I’m a little crazy.

I like when its hot. I like driving with my windows down – its a must! I like sitting by the river all the time. I like to be spontaneous. I don’t lock my doors unless its night…not that it matters because I keep my bedroom window open. I don’t lock my car. I speak my mind. My way is the best way. I like to race and I refuse to lose. I’m super competitive. I don’t think 5 pets is too many. I chose my restaurants because of the drinks, not the food. I get emotionally involved with books and TV. I have an obsession with animal jewelry. I don’t like alcohol, but I can party it up like its 1999. I can listen to metal and oldies on the same CD. My Friday nights usually consist of playing cards or board games. I eat things past the expiration date. I spend too much money and don’t clean often enough. I put others before myself even when its bad for me. I’m stubborn to the end. I like to share, but I hate when people touch and move my stuff. I love to cook, I love to sew, and I love to wear dresses, however I am not girly. I am a woman, but if you think there is something I can’t do, you are wrong. I’m not a feminist. I don’t carry pepper spray. I love walking alone or with someone. I love walking at night and I love creepy places like alleys. I like being in seclusion, but I love my friends. I love to cuddle, but some times I need my space. I don’t like to use air conditioning, and I feel wrong using a colander. I prefer to make all of my food from scratch, but I love going out to eat. I would do anything for my friends. I give my food and my money to strangers. I love gnomes, and I love to paint. I can’t stand when people don’t use their blinker. I’m passionate about driving. I wish I could be in school forever. I love to read, and I love grammar. I’m crazy, and I’m careless, but you know what?

No matter how crazy or careless I might be, no matter how weird I am, there is someone out there who will love me more than anything. And to that, I say cheers!
