Some things make me so angry I want to kick the dog and drown the cat. I want to drive down the sidewalk and run over all of the pedestrians and then for good measure do something far more heinous than all of those put together.
I would share that in more detail but the guys in legal are having a fit now and I am required to tell you that I don’t really want to do any of those things. I have taken literary license and created a fake facade that is designed for the sole purpose of capturing the attention of my readers.
Hmm…I wonder if the guys in legal have a problem with me saying I want to give them all a colonoscopy without the benefit of anesthesia. Of course the guys in legal aren’t all male and at least two of the women gave birth naturally so they aren’t afraid of the aforementioned colonoscopy. Well, I am not impressed by them because everyone knows that our great grandmothers would give birth and then be back in the fields an hour later.
They make those women in legal look so damn lazy.

Today I was overwhelmed by the noise in the blogosphere. I must have read 2,983,839 posts about the same topics:
- How to blog
- Why To blog
- How To Deal With Writer’s Block
- How to make every post useful
- 872 Things You Must Need To Know
Dammit, none of them were smart enough to use a headline like How To Have Better Sex Through Blogging. It is not all that hard to write, hell let’s give it a quick try.
Blogging is a fantastic way to help you and your partner supercharge your sex life. The best and most obvious way is to use your blog as a tool to improve communication between you and your husband/wife/partner/lover.
Better communication leads to increased feelings of comfort and a deeper sense of love and affection. Not to mention it is sometimes easier to tell your honey that they aren’t quite hitting the spot during daylight hours as opposed to during intimacy.
Two minutes is all it took me to write that. I wouldn’t call it stellar but it is better than many. Of course I once wrote a post called The Secret To Better Sex. It was quite successful.
It didn’t generate oodles of comments but it receives regular traffic and the readers tend to click through the links there, none of which deal with tips about how to have sex. There are links to posts about writing and posts about relationships, but nothing that tells you how to touch…
That post also has links to two other posts that are important and useful. One is a post that contains a list of vocabulary words. I love that one because I love words. Here is a short selection:
- Raconteur-One who tells stories and anecdotes with skill and wit.
- Callipygian–adj.Having beautifully proportioned buttocks.
- Lachrymose–adj.Weeping or inclined to weep; tearful. Causing or tending to cause tears.
- Perspicacious–adj. Having or showing penetrating mental discernment; clear-sighted.
- Flibbertigibbet–n. A silly, scatterbrained, or garrulous person.
The second one talks about the death of my grandfather last year and contains stories about my grandparents in general. Been thinking about them quite a bit lately and wondering what they might say about some of the things that are going on.
One day I hope to build the sort of relationship with my grandchildren that I had with my grandparents. When I think about the things I am doing now and the plans I am making I see their fingerprints and feel their presence.
These plans are mine and none of them could have predicted any of this but that is ok. Where I see the connections are the work I am doing to take care of my family. They would understand and appreciate it.
Still it would have been fun to watch their faces while I tried to explain whether there is a difference between a dad blogger and a regular blogger.
Ask For What You Want & What You Need
Sometimes life provides you with the opportunity to get more than what you need and you can ask for what you want. If you want to be happy you need to figure out what you need. When you understand this and have identified what brings you joy you can develop a plan to obtain these things.
One of the useful pieces of information that blogging provided for me were the answers to many of these questions.
