Frisky Friday - Ancient Self Love

[caption id="attachment_10523" align="alignright" width="300"]Screenshot_20170515-132753 Image created using Bitmoji[/caption]

So they discovered a man in Pompeii whose naughty bits were out when he died. Judging by the look frozen on his face, he did not suddenly die and fall that way, but decided to exit the world with a bang.

People are trying to protect this man's dignity saying that perhaps he was peeing or protecting his package by covering it with his hand.

Basically, they are ashamed for him and feel a need to cover up a natural human thing that has been demonized. Look, I get there are some weird things out there when it comes to masturbation like the sex robots that are being made to allow men to have a pretend relationship with a female seeming machine, but that doesn't mean there was anything wrong with this man dying the way he did.

Stop projecting your beliefs on a man who was part of an ancient civilization. He chose to experience a little pleasure when the world around him was blowing up with no hope of survival.

I mean, he could've chosen to grab the nearest woman against his will or something equally awful. He chose to touch himself. Babies do it in the womb. Children do it at young ages. Teens do it A LOT. Adults do it too.

Sure, it might be an odd sight in a museum that children would laugh at, but sexuality is a natural part of human existence and I've never understood why nearly all of it is treated as disgusting or taboo.

Some things may make propagation of the human species difficult, but I don't believe we should have the right to say someone can't like something like sexual spanking, as an example. We might not understand it, but we don't need to. As long as no one is being abused and no children or special needs individuals are involved, go enjoy yourself.

If you saw the sky that day and were smart enough to realize there wasn't time to run, would you just stand there and wait for death, or would you get it on with your partner if you had one? Maybe you'd just hold them close, but that's not what some people would do.

Salut,

Hanna "Semi Precious" Murphy

A legend in the roller derby community is gone. How and why, I do not know. What I do know is that many are reeling from the news, myself included. 
Hanna was known for big hits and a brilliant personality. I experienced her hits first hand as she sent me flying a number of times. Then she'd smile and make sure I wasn't hurt. 
I stumbled onto this clip on Youtube from 2012 and I think it shows Hanna as many knew her.
She was a force off the track too.
As a cofounder of the award-winning Top Shelf Distillers, she gave much to the surrounding Ottawa Valley community.  
Hanna was a relatively petite woman and it was she who taught me that I could be mighty despite my size. I wouldn't be the woman I am today if I hadn't had the pleasure and the privilege of sharing the track with her. 
I'm shocked. I'm sad. I'm upset I'll never see her or speak to her again. 
R.I.P. #10.

Change is in the Air

I've been making a lot of changes lately around my home and some of them might seem a little odd, but they're making me happy. One thing I've done is taken apart my dining table. I never eat in there or have people over to eat. It was just another horizontal surface that would collect things like receipts, odd screws from various projects, and countless piles of paper. I had been frustrated because of the clutter it encouraged, but also because I didn't have a space for my Yamaha keyboard. I had been trying to use my keyboard in the living room, but it felt too cluttered and it wasn't sitting at the right height. With it now in my dining room, I was able to relocate my storage bench, which happens to be the perfect height to sit at while playing my keyboard. I now have much more breathing room. There is still a lot of mess to handle here yet, but I'm making solid progress. A lot of people suggest the bedroom is the place to start when decluttering, but I haven&…

Feeling My Age - ROW80 2020 R1-4

I've reached the age where my body has decided to have issues. Not constantly, but frequently. Sprinting for a bus can leave me with an injured ankle simply from using it, not from actually twisting it in ways it shouldn't move, just a fairly normal activity. I guess I need to warmup and stretch before walking to the bus now. About a decade ago, I was given a guard for my teeth due to grinding. And for the next month, I need to sleep with wrist braces because my doctor thinks I'm developing carpal tunnel. Really, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before now given my level of computer use. My mom had it years ago and had to have surgery. From reading books of all things. Anyway, he thinks if I sleep with braces on that it may be enough to keep it at bay because the nerves will get 7-8 hours of rest. After 4 days and nights, the tingling has been reducing, so I'm hopeful.
