1.Do you speak any languages other than English? (English first only because the blog is mostly in English.)
Not well, no. I can speak a smattering of Spanish, a few words of Polish, and a bit of Japanese. And a very small amount of Klingon.

2. If you answered yes above, would you describe yourself as fluent? Which was your first language?
I don’t consider myself fluent in anything but English at the moment, but I’d like to be fluent in a few other languages.

3. Did you study a foreign language in school (including college or University)? How much do you remember? Has it been useful to you? Can you speak it, or only read it?
I did – I took Latin for most of high school and a bit in college. I remember quite a bit of it – even though it’s a pretty dead language, it’s remarkably useful for English. I can speak it sparingly, but I can read it fairly well.

I took Spanish back in junior high, and I remember some – my teacher used to say that the most important phrases were “dame una cerveza por favor”, and “donde esta el trono?”.  I speak a bit, although my comprehension isn’t the best, and I can read it some.

I’m currently taking Japanese, and going into my third semester. I’ve been studying what we learned the first year, and think I’m remembering it fairly well. It hasn’t been useful yet, but it will be if I ever make it over to Japan. I’m working on speaking it – certain subjects are much easier than others. Reading it is a bit tough, but there are several websites where I try and read the news, and some where I pull up the menus – it would be easier if I knew more of the kanji, but when they use kana I can sound it out and figure out the meaning with varying degrees of success.

4. If you were going to learn another language, which one would you want to study?
Japanese was the one I picked last year just for run, but I also want to study Chinese, Russian, and German.

5. Do you have relatives who speak a language different from your own?
One set of grandparents spoke Polish, and my other grandparents spoke Lithuanian.

6. Have you been to a country where you don’t know the language? How well did you cope?
I haven’t – I’m not sure how well I’d do, even visiting countries where I do know a bit of the language. I will say that learning a new language gives you a better appreciation of those visiting our country who are trying out their English.

TMI Tuesday: That Was Random

1. When you first skied down the slopes of love with your significant other were you a:?
a. bunny hill beginner?
b. a seasoned ski bum?
c. black diamond risk-taker pulling out all the tricks and inversions
Hmmm…i would say b) a seasoned ski bum. I wasn’t a complete novice, but I wasn’t sleeping around that much either.

2. If you had a sexual encounter in a taxi cab and the meter was running, costing you $1 per minute. How much would that cab ride cost you?
It would depend on how good the sex was, and how much money I had…it could be as cheap as $2, but might be as much as $200.

3. Who has the better sense of humor, you or your significant other?
Well, that would depend on which of us you asked. I would say my sense of humor is better.

4. What is the weirdest part of your nightly bedtime routine?
I’m not sure that I do anything weird at night – maybe double check the doors are locked?

5. Fill in the blank: I can’t stand to be called _sweetie___ .

6. What household item do you use and never put back where it belongs?
Just one? Seriously, I try to put things back, but I guess I have a habit of not putting the crackers back in the cupboard.

Bonus: The first bed you ever had sex in, was it twin, double, queen, king -sized or some other size?

Hmm…if I remember right, it was a full sized bed. But there were many other places I had sex before I had it in a bed.

Wicked Wednesday: Ferrari

The Ferrari stopped and the tinted window opened to reveal…

brown, wavy hair ruffled by the breeze…

a little bit of forehead, as tan as you please…

black mirrored glasses reflecting in the light…

a long and narrow nose with just a curve to the right…

lips that were smiling, a glint of pearly teeth…

to round out this handsome face a shaven chin beneath…

he beckoned me to enter, I climbed in for a ride…

the hot leather on my legs was matched by that inside…

as he drove I sucked his cock, his hand was in my hair…

I swallowed and laid back while his fingers drifted there…

I came as he was shifting, his fingers flitting fast…

the street signs whizzing past…

I wanted it to last…

and last…

and last…

TMI Tuesday: Let’s Get Personal

1. Toilet paper. How do you hang your toilet paper? The end coming over the top or with the end coming from around the back and at the bottom?
The end has to come over the top – there’s no other correct way to hang it. And placing it on top of the empty roll does not cut it.

2. Towels. Do you use a new one each time you bathe or reuse?
I reuse – I can’t imagine doing that much laundry in a week! Unless the towels are really dirty for some reason, I usually swap them out once a week.

3. Bathing. Do you use a washcloth to clean your body or use the soap directly all over your body with no washcloth?
If I’m using soap, I rub the soap all over my body with no washcloth. If I’m using a shower gel, I pour it on a pouf first and then wash my body with it.

4. Bra. Do you remove your bra by taking your arms out of the straps first, then inching it around your body until you can reach the clasp and undo it or do you contort your arms, and reach around and unclasp.?
I’ve always reached back and unhooked my bra before slipping it off of my arms. I guess I’ve never thought about it being that much of a contortionist job.

5. Dishwasher. Rinse/pre-wash all dishes before loading or just load.
Uaually I just load, unless there’s something that’s super baked on that needs a bit of a soak first.

6. Breakfast cereal. Cereal in bowl first, then pour on milk or put milk in bowl then add cereal?
The cereal has to go in first, and then the milk poured on it – otherwise how would you know how much milk you needed to add?

7. Toothpaste. Squeeze from bottom working way up tube as it empties or squeeze from middle or wherever you want??
It depends – I try and squeeze mostly from the bottom, but when the tube is fairly full I will squeeze it from the middle.

8. Condoms. Do you put it on your lover or does he put it on himself?
I’ve never used condoms, so I have no idea who’d put them on.

9. Condom disposal. In the garbage bin or flush down toilet?
I would imagine in the garbage – I didn’t know it was safe to flush them.

Bonus: Write your own bonus question and tell us an intimate detail about you or your habits.
Do you sleep on your side, your back, or your stomach?
I almost always sleep on my side – which side doesn’t matter so much as long as I’m facing towards the edge of the bed.

Wicked Wednesday: Crumpled…

Crumpled…

…will, as I can no longer resist you, nor do I wish to…

…clothes, as they fall from my body onto the floor…black sleeveless top….black lacy bra…sleek red skirt…lacy black thong….all leave a trail to the bed where you lie waiting…..

…sheets, as we roll and move atop them…the fabric sliding under our bodies…absorbing the sweat of our sex as we play, hands roaming, mouths sliding, and we fuck, and cum…

…bodies, as we collapse exhausted, our orgasms draining us, our caresses gentle now, as we slide towards sleep…
