HNT #32 - Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

He sees you when you're sleeping
He knows when you're awake
He knows if you've been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

Christmas has rolled around again, and last year I wasn't a part of the HNT scene so I missed out on the 'gift giving' theme that occurred between participants. Luckily, this year has seen the theme repeated and so I get to play along. To summarise quickly for those not familiar with the concept, we were asked to pick 3 fellow HNT bloggers that we would normally get a gift for and outline what we would get for them if we had the means to do so. Oh what fun! I chose 3 regular reader/commenters to receive my gifts. I hope they like what I got them.

My first gift goes to Ms Inconspicuous from The Seduction of Infidelity. She always leaves comments about how she likes my hands, and I know she finds a hand even more attractive if it has a band of gold on the third finger. For Ms I my gift is a hand, if she needs one.

Gift number 2 is for Dana of Amid Life's Crises. Where I live, some enterprising, tall ladies have formed a Tall Women's Club for women of tall stature to mix with other similarly built women and be able to socialise without feeling like they are standing out in the crowd. Dana has commented on her blog about this and I think she would enjoy a group such as this.

And last, but not least, a gift for a reader who has been with me almost since I started this blog. Amorous Rocker often stops by and leaves a comment or two and I do appreciate that. I don't follow the NHL, but I know she does and her team, the Dallas Stars, came close to making the finals last season and I am hoping, for her sake, that they go all the way this year. My gift, if I could give it to you, is the Stanley Cup and maybe you will get to see the real thing in 2009 as your team parades it through the streets.

For all my other readers, I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, and a happy, safe and prosperous New Year. I will be away for the next 2 weeks but I have scheduled next week's HNT to appear on the 1st of January (so let's hope it works). I look forward to your continued support in 2009.

And don't forget to pay Os a visit to see who else got gifts for Christmas.

Wednesday Weirdness #29.

I always donate blood every few months which I consider to be a charitable act. I have also put gifts under the Wishing Tree at our local shopping centre and these go to less fortunate children on Christmas day. I am sure I have donated money to various door knockers and tin rattlers throughout the year but i am unable to recall which ones.

Aren't all children in a hurry to grow up? Now that I am older I do wish that I had placed more value on being a kid. Don't get me wrong, I loved my childhood but it always seemed like I was waiting for the next birthday, or to get a bit taller, or what ever else it was that symbolised growing up.

My sister and I always left a glass of milk and some biscuits for Santa. I don't remember ever catching my parents clearing it away or eating it so it probably didn't happen. All I can remember is being impressed when I found a few crumbs, a dirty napkin, and a sooty cup.

I don't have any cousins so this question is a little hard to answer.

Right at this moment I can't recall an awkward moment, but there must be one, my life is filled with awkward moments.

The one gift I am hoping is under our tree is 'Guitar Hero', the game. I am hanging out to play that game.

Sex is never a go, regardless of whether friends are staying or not, however, the presence of others in the house, regardless of who they might be, means that there would be absolutely no chance of any sexual activity occurring.

8.) DO YOU HAVE ANY TRADITIONS FOR THE HOLIDAYS? (ie opening one gift Christmas Eve and saving the rest for Christmas Day, opening them all Christmas Eve, listening to a particular holiday CD while opening gifts, preparing a special breakfast, ETC)
No real traditions as such. All gifts are left til Christmas Day and someone is designated as the 'official' present giver (usually one of the kids) and they distribute the presents to the rest of the family.

I can't think of anything that I would be too embarrassed to receive. I am pretty broad minded.

I find it hard to throw most things away so I have boxes filled with all sorts of different things but it isn't really a collection. For a proper collection I do have quite an extensive assortment of CD's, cassettes, vinyl albums and singles. I love them all and couldn't bear to part with a single one.

HNT #31 - Tinsel Life.

Flipping through my collection
I need the right song for this situation
Too fast or too slow
Too high or too low
He don't know the pain that I know
The soundtrack to my life
-: Squint

No special significance to this week's lyrics, and no Christmas tree either. It was just too difficult to get a HNT shot with the Christmas tree in it so you will just have to settle for me draped in some tinsel. There is some Christmas balls in there somewhere, but I would have to turn around so you could see them. If you really want to see them then click the picture.
The lyrics just seemed to suit my fruitless search for an appropriate song about Tinsel, but not Tinsel Town. In the end, I guess it was the right song for the situation.

Os is the man to see, to find out who else played along this week. I have HNT's planned for the next few weeks but may not get to Os's to leave a comment, so be sure to check back over the Festive Season.

Wednesday Weirdness #28.

1. What is the one sexual act you would never do?
Anything to do with urine or excrement would send me running a mile. I don't see anything sensual in that and it is just degrading to all concerned.

2. Is there anyone you know, that if they turned out to be a serial killer you would not be surprised?
I used to work with a guy who was really creepy and weird. It wasn't anything that you could put your finger on, but I used to get bad feelings about him when ever he was around. Other work mates felt the same way. I don't know what ever happened to him after I left that job, and he wasn't the type of person that I wanted to keep in touch with.

3. What is the most annoying thing about the holiday season for you?
For me it is hanging the lights on the outside of our house. It takes forever, and then half of them don't work once they are up, despite having checked them before hanging them. It is so frustrating trying to find which little globe is the one that is making the other 20 or so not work. I always feel like Clark Griswold (Chevy Chase) from National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. The only difference being, I don't have to contend with snow but usually it is a hot day and I finish up getting sunburned.

4. If you saw a video of your celebrity crush picking their nose, would that change your opinion of your hotness?
I'd like to think that it wouldn't, but I am sure that it would. Don't we like our celebrities (particularly ones we have crushes on) to be above all that. Anything that makes them seem no different to average people would tarnish the image somewhat.

5. What is the one non-sexual thing you would be embarrassed to be caught doing?
Probably using the toilet would fit into this category. Not that anything abnormal occurs there, it is just something that I think should be kept private.

6. A favorite blogger friend wrote a column about the one word that really turns her on. Do you have a word or phrase that does the same for you? What is it?
"Would you like sex?" usually tends to work for me, particularly if the person asking me is someone I would like to have sex with. Other than that there is no particular words or phrases that 'really turn me on.'

7. As someone who ran a virtual cookie exchange, I have to ask what your favorite cookie is?
Any sort of Choc Chip Cookie would be a favourite of mine.

TMI Tuesday #51

1. What is the greatest age difference between between yourself and a SO? Older or younger?
Greatest age difference would be 2 years, and I was the oldest one in the relationship.

2. What is the greatest age difference between between yourself and any sexual partner? Older or younger?
Probably about 4 years or so and I was the youngest.

3. Have you started your holiday shopping? Is it done?
I have definitely started, but I still have a few more gifts to get. Once again I leave it to the last few days and get caught in the rush.

4. What are the chances there will be a "naughty" present under the tree this year (either from you or for you)?
No chance at all. That ain't never going to happen in this house.

5. What is your favorite holiday song?
I don't know whether it is a Christmas song as such, but my favourite Christmas themed song is "Santa Claus is Coming To Town" by Bruce Springsteen. Traditional Christmas song would be "Jingle Bells" or "Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer" because I know all the words and they are fun to sing, particularly with kids.

Bonus (as in optional):Do you have a preferred time of day to have sex? If so, why?
I have no preferred time and I will take it at any time of the day or night. Gee, that makes me sound awfully cheap but it is a reality for me. I do have a desire to be awoken by a woman who has already started to have her way with me. I can't ever remember starting the day that way.

HNT #30 - Stretch.

Stretching out your tightness
Good enough to make you grow

Stretching out your tightness
Time to open up your whole

A visit to Os is the place to find other HNT participants.

Wednesday Weirdness #27.

1.) Do you get along with your significant other's parents? If you've never met their parents or if you're single, how did you usually get along with former SO's parents?
I got along fine with both of Mrs A's parents, and would go so far as to say I had an exceptional relationship with her father. Both of them are no longer with us, so unfortunately it is all in the past now.

2.) Have you ever stolen a tip from a table while eating at a restaurant? If you saw someone doing this, would you speak up or pretend you never saw anything?
I have never done this and I think if I saw it happening I would let the restaurant manager know. It would be hard to prove though, as it would be my word against the thief, but i couldn't let it pass unnoticed.

3.) Do you have any sexual fantasies that you’d never admit to anyone?
Of course I have sexual fantasies, but I don't think they are the type that I would have to keep to myself. They are not so perverted or gross that they would freak people out, they are just normal, healthy fantasies. Perhaps I need Dana's 'normal meter' to measure them?

4.) What smells do you find comforting?
I always find the smell of fresh laundry to be a comforting smell. I think it reminds me of my Mum and how I used to help her hang the washing when I was a boy. I also like the smell of pipe tobacco. Not so much when it is smoked, but the smell of it in it's packet and as it is packed into the pipe bowl. My Dad and Grandfather both smoked pipes and the smell takes me back to happy times.

Do you ever resent your significant other for not earning more money? Do you ever find yourself jealous because your SO earns more money than you?
No, not at all. All income helps to sustain the household and pay the overheads of family life so it doesn't matter who earns the money or how much they earn as long as there is enough to pay our way.

6.) If you had to wear a Halloween costume for 3 hours a day, ever day, for the rest of your life, which would it be and why?
I have no idea. Halloween is not big in Australia so I haven't got a clue about Halloween costumes and what is available, and what is acceptable. I'll have to give this one a miss.

7.) Have you ever had sex with someone and kept a piece of their undergarments or anything else for any reason? Have you ever had someone want or try to keep something of yours?
No, I have never kept anything for any reason and can't really see the point in it. I can't imagine having a 'trophy cabinet' full of underwear from past lovers. It just sounds a little weird. I don't think I have had any of my items souvenired either. If I have then it has occurred without my knowledge.

TMI Tuesday #50

1. Do you consider sexy underthings a present for you or your partner?
I would consider sexy underwear to be a present that is best enjoyed by both the giver and the receiver. Surely that would be the whole point of giving sexy underwear as a gift?

2. What are 3 characteristics of "your type"? Have you best relationship(s) been with your type or when you have gone against it?
This question has been asked before and I didn't know what 'my type' was back then, and I still don't have a clue. Perhaps someone can enlighten me.

3. What is on your Santa list this year?
I haven't really given much consideration to a Santa list this year. I will just be appreciative of what ever I receive, and thankful for the fact that someone thought of me.

4. Generally speaking, who has historically had a higher libido, you or your partner(s)?
That would be me. Mrs A's libido is almost non existent.

5. The unsculptured female bush seems to have passed from fashion. What about men, do you think they need to trim and shave "down there"?
To be honest, I don't really care whether men trim or shave "down there" because I am not interested in that area of men. However, I do keep myself trim and partially shaved. I believe that if a woman wants to pleasure me in that area then it should be neat and tidy so she can find her way around and not have to contend with a jungle and a mouth full of fur.

Bonus (as in optional):What are a few of your favorite things (both sexual non-sexual)?
Sexual Favourites:- Hot, passionate kisses, Oral sex both giving and receiving, the Complete abandonment of wild fucking, and Cuddling in the afterglow
Non-sexual Favourites:- include the smell of fresh coffee, thunderstorms, the ocean (and the beach) in winter, marshmallows, dark chocolate, getting caught in the rain, freshly mown grass. There are many others, but these are top of the list for me.

HNT #29 - I Touch Myself.

I don't want anybody else
When I think about you
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

- Amphlett, McEntee, Kelly, Steinberg (The Divinyls)

Visit Os to meet the rest of the HNT players.

Wednesday Weirdness #26.

1.) If you knew one of your close friends was cheating on their significant other, would you get involved? (EX: Tell their SO, try to talk to your friend about it, etc) Why or why not?
No, I wouldn't get involved. I would hate it if a friend knew about my affairs and tried to get involved, so I think I would just stay out of it.

2.) If your SO was cheating on you and one of your close friends knew, would you want them to tell you? Why or why not?
I don't think I would want to know. If I don't know about it then it doesn't hurt me. Maybe I am just being an ostrich and burying my head in the sand, but sometimes it is easier that way.

3.) Have you ever stuffed your bra or underwear to make the size of your breasts or penis seem larger?
Can't say that I ever have. What would be the point. If the person you were trying to impress finished up being impressed and wanted to sleep with you, how embarrassing would it be to have a sock fall out of your undies, or tissues out of your bra?

4.) Would you sleep with a friend's significant other behind their back if it were guaranteed you'd never be caught?
Absolutely. If no-one was ever going to find out, then count me in.

5.) Do you think you are more intelligent than your significant other?
It depends on the subject. We both shine in different areas, so there are some topics that she is way smarter than me in.

6.) Do you ever fantasize about cheating on your significant other? Are you ever tempted to really go through with it?
I have fantasized about it, and I have gone through with it. It is too late to shut that door, the horse has well and truly bolted.

7.) Have you ever had cyber sex, text sex or phone sex with someone other than your significant other during a relationship?
No. None of the above, either with a significant other or with someone else. Am I missing out on something? Would someone like to educate me??

8.) Would you cheat on your significant other twice monthly for half a year to have all your debt permanently erased?
To erase debt permanently? Hell yeah! I've done it for a lot less. Having said that though, it would depend on who I had to cheat with. I have standards and there are some people who just don't meet the grade.

BONUS! Have you ever fantasized about having sex with any blogger friends? Would you be daring enough to reveal five of them?
That would be a Yes. I'm not sure that I would reveal them because I am not feeling that brave at the present time. Maybe if you email me I will let you know if you make the cut ;)

TMI Tuesday #49

1. What are your turn-ons?
Regular readers will know that I love eyes. Dark, smouldering eyes that promise pleasures not yet imagined, or eyes wide with innocence and expectation. I can usually find something to like about a woman's eyes. Accents also turn me on and there aren't too many accents that fail to get my attention. Spanish (or Latin American) accents are my favourite, usually because the woman concerned will also have wonderful eyes, dark hair and tanned features.

2. What are your turn-offs?
Smoking, body odour, and rudeness. Not in any particular order, but it is amazing how many times you find all 3 in the one person.

3. Not counting your turn-ons, what's the best trait a person can have?
To be a good listener. Communication is a 2 way street and sometimes all you have to do is shut your mouth and listen to the other person. It's not a difficult concept, but it is one that so many people fail to grasp.

4. Not counting your turn-offs, what's the worst trait a person can have?
Being too opinionated. Unfortunately I work with several people who don't mind sharing their opinions on life, the universe, and everything. Yes, we all have opinions about lots of things, but we don't want to hear your opinion on every little thing followed by a detailed discussion on why it is the right opinion and nobody else's opinion matters.

5. What's your biggest pet peeve?
Cell phones ringing at inappropriate times, and then people answering them. Are you that important that you can't turn your phone off in a movie theatre? And if you answer it, do you really need to discuss your plans for the weekend during one of the quieter parts of the film?
