St. Valentine Was a Sadist

Yeah, y'all know what today is.
Like most of you, I think VD is a pile of crap, but in honor of the occasion anyway let me just say: Richard - thanks for putting up with my seemingly never-ending bullshit. Why you haven't jumped ship by now is beyond me. So thanks, and I love you.

Moving on. Also in honor of the occasion, I found this and thought it to be mildly anti-Valentine's Day in a subversive/not-so-subversive way. Perhaps it can help you improve or save or even sustain your intimate relationship.

According to the site, our sleeping pose is that of the tetherball. Which is pretty much dead-on. The illustration below pretty much depicts how I (the "ball" on the left) and Richard (the "pole" on the right, minus the whole long hair and big boobs thing) sleep at night.


I am a tetherball!

Happy February 14th to everyone!

Nothing like Valentines Day to really rub the single guys nose in it!

The Tetherball position kind of looks like she's spanking him, and unless my eyes are playing tricks on me, it looks like he has boobs as well. Apparently I should go for the Fireman's Carry.

Happy V-Day.

I'm the Classic Spooner which is a total lie. I may start out spooning but I end up in the middle. Always in the middle.

That's a ridiculous survey. I do not spoon (unless there is thrusting activity involved).

Is it sad that I'm turned on by the picture of two chicks tetherballing?

Fascinating. from what I can tell, I just barely cling to the edge of the bed--straight as a board. From years of the ex yelling at me for being on "his side". Shortly before we broke up he told me he finally figured out that I was never on his side...he was always on my side.

Happy V-Day!

The picture makes me feel funny.

Damn, I'm a 'colon.' I suppose that compliments 'VD' in general vicinity, if nothing else...

Btw - have you ever told the story of you and Richard meeting on this blog? I'm curious about the long distance thing and how you made it work until you moved in together :)

Did you make that "Proper!" candy with your computer skills? I really need you to help me out with my site . . .

My sleeping position is The Lonely, Masterbatory, Depressed Loser, but I didn't see that one in any of the drawings.

I am the Running Man or alternatively the "Flying Bob" but I dont know what Flying Bob looks like because it won't show me.

I think a Flying Bob sounds interesting.

I'm Not Carrie Bradshaw said...

You made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. Wait, not like that....

I agree with Matt - that drawing is of two women. I could make a joke here about your masculinity, Cherry, but I won't.

is that kathleen turner on the right? the human on the right looks very mannish, so i had to guess.

i sleep best on my side, slightly curled up. put me on my back straight up and i'll stay wide awake (which partially explains why i don't sleep on planes, and, well, um, nevermind ...)
