The Fabulous Life

Remember how I said that when I have nothing to say, I just post even dirtier pictures?

Well, I lied. I got nothing to say today, and these pics are mostly only mildly NSFW. By my standards, this is like embedding The Sound of Music. Still, I like guys in their underwear. Sue me.

This past weekend was fabulous! EFU came home for spring break, so I picked her and YFU up from the ex' house and then we went home and played Mario Kart. I got schooled, as always. Then we went to see Horton Hears a Who. It was not bad, which was so much better than I had expected.

But it gets even more fabulous. On Sunday, we went to church! And in the afternoon, it was sunny and springlike out, so we went to play miniature golf. I shot nine over par!

And before that, we all spent two hours cleaning and rearranging YFU's room. Now she has empty space, and I may have to get her a beanbag chair.

EFU thinks that "beanbag chair" is redundant and should be avoided. I see her point. I don't entirely agree, but I'm proud to have raised someone who sticks up for the language. Her writing courses are really paying off. She sent me a draft last week, and it was very good. I didn't have many suggestions at all.

EFU has two weeks for spring break, so she's working this week. Yesterday, I worked from 8 am until 9:20 pm and then went to pick her up from her job, and we drove home. Quality time!

We haven't met yet, but here's the scenario as I see it
Me: Black Man
You: White Dude
You are very oral, and I need an oral exam -
Open your mouth and say "Ahh" - drink to completion

You tried to write a haiku, but it needs revision. The proper form is 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables. Let me try to edit:

Me, hottie black man,
You, hottie white man, on knees,
Suck me and swallow.

Hope you find what you are looking for. And who doesn't love a good haiku!!

Actually, I don't love a good haiku. Or, more correctly, I believe that "good haiku" is an oxymoron when it refers to anything written after the eighteenth century. But I very much appreciate the effort to raise the literary standards of the missed connections.

I don't hold out much hope that the standards will rise, but I'll be watching, and I'll let you know.

I don't know about the quality of Haiku, but given these pictures (Mr. Meshbriefs in particular) something's surely going to rise!
