fabulous day at the beach

This morning and early afternoon was absolutely fantastic.
(I'll discuss yesterday evening in another entry).

I wanted to share why I love living in Vancouver (and make a few of you jealous). I've traveled to and through a number of countries and stayed in many cities but I love coming back home.
My friend picked me up at around 8am and we headed out forWhytecliff Park. My homemade potato salad all packed up with some pretzels, it was going to be a great day!
We got parking (soooo good as it's at a premium there), bought coffee along the way, then took approximately 70 photos. I can't really remember.
Whytecliff park is really close to BC Ferries so you get to see them go by all the time:



It was a gorgeous morning. The sun was shining, wind blowing and the water, damn, was gorgeous.

This is another photo I snapped. A multitude of sailboats and boats in general were on the water today.



My friend and I climbed up this big rock and had a fantastic view of the water, some of the gulf islands and a bit of Vancouver Island.


The coolest part was that I got to see a seal up close and personal. I got about 5 feet away but I didn't see it at first so it snorted at me and scared the shit out of me.



Okay, that's enough for this evening. I'm off to have coffee with someone..... Nite all!

All I wanted to do was be a princess for a day

I'm still a little bit sore today.
My (burnt) back doesn't hurt that much. The photo (see below) just looks bad.
While playing slow-pitch all weekend I also managed to tear up my leg. I love scratches and scars and all that fun stuff. I'm beginning to understand that I thrive on pain. It's intense. For example, I took a line drive in my forearm on Sunday and now it's rather bruised. Fabulous. I'd do it all again next weekend if i could. (Oh, and just as an FYI - I got the out at first. Play the ball first, feel pain later.)

But, I digress. The title of this post is taken from the film Better than Sex. It's an Australian film that, summed up nicely, is 3 days in the life of a 1 night stand. I really enjoyed it. The internal monologue that goes along with it was especially cool because it's everything you want to say to your partner when you're having sex with them but you're terrified that they'll see you as too controlling or difficult. In reality, however, wouldn't you rather have your partner happy and satisfied?
The main male character was played by David Wenham who also played Faramir in Lord of the Rings. Don't you think he looks better with shorter hair? I have to admit that I swooned - bit time. Mostly for the character he played, but looking at him on screen for 90 minutes wasn't difficult either. The female character, Carole (played by Imelda Corcoran) was great as well. She was just so cute - and natural! I loved it.

I love this photo from the movie:

Accompanying e-mail

aka - spam, you do know how to make my night.

Carito
to me
More options 12:44 am (45 minutes ago)
Hello, Sebastian (not my name)

I want to start my first letter from a question: "Is it possible to be happy without LOVE?"
I think that you will agree with me if the answer will be "NO WAY". Love is the most beautiful and exciting thing
that may happen between man and woman! It inspires us only for doing positive things towards each other.
One very famous writer said: "The beauty will rescue the world" i agree with his words but still i would add :
" LOVE and Beauty will rescure the world".

I hope you agree with me that Love is a big notion.
There's love to God, to Mother, to a child to the country where you were born, and there's love that joins a man
and woman for all their life. That is the LOVE i'm looking for! And i'm seeking for the man who is also eager to have
this life long adventure full of surprises and new experience we can share together! Will you join me for this trip?
I do realise that it should be very difficult to say "Yes" from the first letter having no idea about me.
That's why i just offer to get to know each other better though correspondence that will help us to reveal many things
about each other whether we mach perfectly or not. In addition you can look at my pictures and read some info about me here
http://dating-foryou.com/passion/
I hope you'll like what you see and read there.
Well closing my first letter to you i just want to thank you for reading it and i really hope that you'll share
my point of view on what i said above. I do really hope that you'll answer me soon.

Best regards.....

Carito

what i would really say

Alright, bear with me. This is a frustration post.

If I were to write a real personal ad, it would read as such:
Blonde, short, intelligent, writer, curvy (deal with it), wear glasses and loves trashy teen films.
Love, never experienced it. Do I want it? Yes. Do I deserve it? My friends would say so.
I'm the one that's could be called the quiet friend behind the tall, thin, totally extroverted girl at the bar. The one no one suspects.
I want cuddles on the couch, trash on tv and respect. The latter has been lacking, really lacking.
I'm way to knowledgable about the subject of sex. Not from experience but rather from my volunteer work.

I am a hopeless, cheap romantic. I don't want big bouquets of roses or expensive dinners out. Small gestures are lifes most precious moments.

Despises sushi, loves curry and can drink a scotsman under the table the same night.

You prefer Rough sex!


You like it ROUGH. Hard, great, wonderful slamming sex is your type of sex. More the product of lust than love - and utterly horny - rough sex is what satisfies you.

kinky people surround me

Public transit. It never ceases to amaze me.

This morning I endured a cramped ride to Burrard Street Skytrain Station on the number 22 bus. I had notions of just reaching out and grabbing someone, just for fun. There was a cute construction worker - yum!

Anyways, I get off the bus and the person giving out the daily newspaper is a girl I had class with years ago. Very strange person. She would never remember me but oh do I remember her. This girl/woman/whatever always wore the strangest clothes and made the strangest comments in class, even the professor would get annoyed.

I turn around to cross the street and who do I see getting out of a taxicab but one of the guys from the Kink series that airs on Showcase. A few years ago the featured city was Vancouver. I’ve seen a few of the people that were on the show at various events around Vancouver including the Everything to do with Sex Show, the Vancouver Pride Parade and of course around the Davie Village but I hadn’t seen this person before. Anyways, I get on the “Millenium Line to VCC Clark” and go on my way to work. At my work’s stop I drop in at the grocer and pick up a few things for lunch and who do I see when I exit? But the same guy. I actually wanted to go and ask him if it was really him but I didn’t want to embarrass or find out that I was wrong.

For those that remember the Vancouver-featured Kink or have been able to catch it on repeats (I actually saw one episode with the aforementioned guy a few weeks ago) you may know him as the guy that plays the piano and is quite a dom.

Well, that was my morning. I’m spent and still trying to get over this cold.

Oh yes, at about 12:30 last night when I had finally fallen asleep my friend on the Island called me, drunk. He’d been stood up again. I would have gladly leant him my ear but I was tired and hardly recognized his voice as I was coming out of my sleepy haze. Well, dear Island friend. I have you to thank today for my sluggishness. Kisses hun.

making my kitty purr

While browsing imasturbate.org
I found out that May is Masturbation Month. Here are some ways that 'they' suggest you celebrate this fabulous month:

-Masturbate in every room in your house
-Masturbate with your partner the whole month instead of having sex
-Buy yourself or your partner a new toy to use for masturbating
-Take photos of yourself masturbating and post them here!
-Take photos of your partner masturbating and post them here!
-For those who like getting a little crazy, allow yourself to be caught masturbating and feel the rush. :-)
(I don't personally recommend this for workplaces and public places where lawsuits can occur, but perhaps you could get caught by your partner?)

(perhaps in honour of Masturbation Month?)

gone in 200 years

I've been blonde my whole life. When I was a child I had bleach blonde hair, naturally.
There have been some difficulties I have encountered being a blonde. I don't attribute everything to my hair colour though as I feel that there are a number of other characteristics about a person that others judge on.
Blonde jokes are a little frustrating sometimes though I have been known to make a few and laugh at those that others spout. As well, my 'blonde moments' are anything but far and few between but I am not a dumb blonde. I completed my university degree in 4.5 years, finished with a 3.0 GPA (that's a 'B'), have a job at a pretty good company where I've hopefully mad a good impression in my short time there.
Anyways, that's my short rant on being blonde. As well, as a fairly femme looking woman active in social movements appearance is certainly judge, however on a trip to a conference one person actually told me he had judged me poorly at the beginning and he'll never do that again. Moral of the story: don't judge someone on their looks. As well, blondes may be extinct in 200 years! - *gasp*!

Here's the link that inspired this posting:
Blondes Get All the Buzz.

one or the other

The recent warm weather this weekend reminded me of a conversation I had with an old friend in January. She was explaining that last summer she decided that she was going to wear only underwear or only a bra, never at the same time. Now, she's a fairly well-endowed woman in the cleavage region so I'm assuming that she chose the bra most of the time.

Now I'm comtemplating this. Or at least part time. The one problem is that I work for a fairly large company so I have to dress fairly conservatively. Once it warms up on a regular basis though, I think I might try that out.

Just a random Sunday thought.

post secret fun

One more post before I head out for the weekend and probably won't return until Monday.
I'm quite an avid reader of PostSecret
and I've sort of been saving up different postcards from the site that reflect how I was or am feeling.
I'll post a few here for now but I recommend that you check out the site if you haven't already done so.





And yes, I will have a smile on my face today. Thanks to Robbie Williams for carrying me away to that special place.

craigslist makes me smile

When I'm a little bit bored and I need a pick me up I usually head over to the good ole craiglist. I found this one on the 'Best of Craigslist' site.

It's called 'Vagina Seeks Penis'. And while the person placing the ad is 31, I'm only 23 so the 'twins' may be a little perkier.

Happy Belated Easter and I'll write more soon. Maybe I'll disclose the nicknames for the most recent callers....

passion: has this become a lost art?

I've made a bit of an observation over the last few months on my, what I'll term, 'adventure'. People tend not to invest in the skill of kissing. They head straight for the sweet spot, or supposed sweet spot that is. It doesn't have to be all tongue or even all on the mouth. Tease a little bit, bite the lower lip, play with his or her ear lobe. Caress the neck, the back. You don't have to have your clothes off to be hot together.

I'm a fairly sex-positive person. Ok, very sex positive person but unless you've got passion, it gets a little boring sometimes. In-out-in-out, blah! Let's spice it up people. One of the best Saturdays I ever had was in bed for 2 hours caressing, cuddling and kissing with a guy. He made me realize that there's more to a connection/relationship/date/rendezvous that just fucking. He slowed me down and I was so glad that he did. There were a few weekends like that in the fall. I'll admit that I perhaps thought there was more to us than just Saturday afternoons in bed but I'd give up sex (though keep masturbation-I'm human) any day to have something like that again.

I was watching LifeNetwork the other evening and there was a show (I think it was Sexual Secrets) that highlighted a cuddle party in New York City. How cool is that? Everyone must remain fully clothed and no sex during the party (afterwards it's free game). But that's just it - can we have closeness, intimacy, maybe a kiss, but not have to have sex all the time? Ultimately, and I'm at fault too, perhaps we have lost that artful skill or have refused to invest in it.

At the same time, does passion and intimacy mean that a couple has to define their relationship? Do we have to be partners (bf/gf/etc)? Do we have to call each other and do something every weekend or can we lead somewhat separate lives but still be together for closeness. Yes, yes, of course there are major issues with possessiveness, I'm well aware of this. But what if? That's all I ask.

But I think I've gone way off on a tangent so I wind it up with this: Don't go straight for the pink palace. Spend some time with passion because it may pay off.

doomed? cursed? inevitable

The creation of this blog was spurred on by a lack of e-mails and calls from a guy that I'm sort of seeing. I don't really know what the term is so I use 'seeing' loosely. We've slept together twice. Whatevs.

But a bit of background information first. Who is this 'single gal' you may ask.
I'm 23, university grad, fully employed, intelligent and I have a brain of my own. From my own surmising, this is the worst possible situation for guys my own age. I have ambition which tends to scare people. Though I've suffered lows in my life I have also gained a great deal of self-confidence. I girl with curves can no longer accept second best.

Anyways, the deal:
A few months ago I embarked on a adventure of sorts. Let's just say that I'd had a dry spell of epic proportions. It was quite unhealthy actually. So I stepped into the realm of the internet. Dodgy, I know. But it's been interesting. On the one hand I've realized that anyone can have sex when they try, on the other, finding someone to connect with and actually have a decent conversation with that doesn't necessarily lead to the bedroom can be extremely difficult.

So my question is: Where does an independent, intelligent woman actually find someone that is interested in pursuing a relationship of sorts. I'm not saying marriage in 6 months or holding hands every night of the week watching the sun set. Writing this is making me feel a little like 'Sex and the City' and Carrie Bradshaw but I can assure you that my shoe collection is humbled next to hers and her dress size may fit my left leg. So begins this new blog of mine. Let's see who stops by and makes a comment or a move. Cuz at this point I'm open to anything.
