TMI Tuesday #15 & 16

This week is a double TMI for me. I had to sit last week's out because I lost my internet connection for the best part of the week. That problem is now (hopefully) resolved and I won't get started on the helpfulness of service providers when it is only a "single user fault". Single user or not, I still expect to be provided with the service I pay for. Anyway, last weeks questions were too good to let go so I will cover them this week as well. If you want to know what TMI is all about then click HERE to join the fun.

1. What can you consider as the greatest thing you've ever done for/ to yourself?
There would be a few things that would fit into this category, but I would say that quitting smoking over 15 years ago was one of the best things I have done. The dumbest thing would have been starting smoking in the first place. I look back now and realize that I could be having (and heading for) major health problems if I hadn't stopped. Even so, my health could be better if I hadn't started in the first place. Without good health everything else becomes that much more difficult.

2. What/ Which part of your life you think you could have done better and why?
I would like to have taken a different career path and gone with my heart, instead of my head and the well meaning advise of others. I wonder where my life would be at right now if I had have chosen a different route?

3. Do you have that one person whom you consider to be the wind beneath your wings?
Mrs A. would be the only person who would fit into this category. While we don't always see eye to eye on things, and we certainly have our differences of opinion, I have spent more of my life with her than without and can't imagine what life would be like without her.

4. Tell us about your longest relationship.
That would be my marriage to Mrs A. which is coming up for it's 20th anniversary this year. 20 years and no chance of early release for good behavior (not that I have been that good, so perhaps I will get time added on?) [only kidding!]

5. In a relationship, when do you get to that point of enough is enough?
I don't know because I haven't reached that stage, at least in this relationship anyway. We have come close a few times, I'm sure, but we have persevered and managed to work things out.

Bonus (as in optional):What is that one intimate moment with someone you miss so much and what are you willing to risk to have another moment of it. ;)
Well, what can I say here? My blog, and my life, is all about chasing that moment(s) and I know that the consequences will be devastating if it is ever discovered, but somehow the thrill of it all seems to outweigh the negatives, at least in my mind anyway.

1. Which one turns you on more Ink or piercing? Why?
Ink definitely turns me on, bigtime. There is something so sexy about a woman with a tattoo. But not just any tattoo, it has to be stylish & sexy, not loud and garish. It moves beyond sexy into H.O.T. if it is somewhere that is not too obvious and not intended for everyday viewing. I love seeing part of a tattoo peeking out from behind a piece of clothing, or a faint outline through a thin blouse or stocking. It is so erotic to find a discreet tattoo on a new, or potential, lover.

2. What ink do you have? If none, what would you get and and where?
I don't have any ink but I have considered getting one for a milestone birthday. It would probably be something small on my bicep or upper arm. Mrs A. would freak if I got one as she thinks they are 'thuggish', but perhaps that is part of the appeal of getting one.

3. What piercing do you have? If none, what would you get and and where?
No piercings. Never have and probably never will. I just don't find it that attractive, and even less so on blokes.

4. Any other adornments you like to do for your lover or have them do for you?
If you are getting any sort of body adornment then you should be getting it for yourself and not for your partner. Lovers come and go, even in the best of relationships, but tattoo's and the like are permanent and can be a daily reminder of an ex who is no longer as popular as they once were. So no, I wouldn't get anything done for someone else and I wouldn't expect them to get it done for me either. I would, however, like to experience oral sex from a woman with a tongue piercing, just so I can compare it and see if it is better. I will report back on my findings if this research comes to fruition.

5. Of all of the above is there anything that is an immediate Turn-Off?
Piercings can be an immediate turn off for me. I hate those washer things that people wear in their ears that leave a hole you can see through. I am also not attracted to people that have multiple facial piercings. It always looks like they fell face first into a box of fishing tackle.

Bonus (as in optional):
If money/work place rules/your life/whatever what ALL would you do to your body in the name of sexual or just general adornment?
As stated above, I am strongly drawn to the idea of a tattoo. I just have to be brave enough to weather Mrs A. wrath when she finds out and hope I can ride out the storm.

I hope this wasn't too much information for you to digest in one sitting. Enjoy the rest of your day, and readers from the Northern Hemisphere, please enjoy your cooler weather for me. I have just about had enough of this long, hot summer and I am hanging out for some cooler weather. Bring on the rain!!

I am in your situation when it comes to a tattoo, I would love a discreet, tasteful tattoo but Mr SD would hit the roof if I came home with one.

But I just might do it one day.

Happy TMI!

I've got several feet of snow in my yard that you can have! Shall I box it up for you?

Great TMI answers! Good for you on quitting smoking ~ I understand it isn't easy.

I'm completely identify with you on the career path answer. I went to law school because it's what I showed aptitude for and I did very well on the admissions test. In fact, I did quite well in law school and loved most every minute of it. I just hated practising law. Hated every mf minute of it, most days. Perhaps if I had gone a different direction with it or something it would have been different. Anyway, I understand and empathize.

Happy TMI!

Always a pleasure to hear from you. Thanks for stopping by.

Mrs SD-
Perhaps we need to rebel together. Maybe, when we both have something similar to celebrate... ;)

Mariposa & ATLLG-
Thanks for the great questions which got the creativity flowing.

Package that snow up and send it over. I would welcome it all. Just arrange to have it delivered on a day when I am home, because it won't last long on my doorstep. 100F+ again today!!

Hope I don't have to go through what it sounds like you have been through.

My Secret Garden-
Thanks for your visit, and for leaving a comment to let me know you were here.

Sheen V-
Thanks for stopping by, and I am off to check out your blog right now.
