Sex talk

Sex is usually talked about behind closed doors.  Something that is instilled by our parents when we are young.  It is taboo.  Shouldn’t be talked about.  Heck even TV and movies didn’t show anything since it is so bad for you.  Fast forward some years ahead (nice try, birthday is coming up but not going to reveal my age that easy) and the landscape has changed somewhat.  For one, TV has embraced sex.  The regular tv stations are trying to match what the subscription based ones have done for the past few years.  Hard to do since they have had full nudity along with some very graphic sex scenes.  It is a step in the right direction.  Sex is natural.  It happens regardless if we talk about it, show it, or even do it ourselves.

It was a dark and snowy night

The lights shiny brightly as the bus pulled into the terminal.  Glancing around I see that I am the only one heading towards it.  Doors open with the familiar swoosh sound and I head up the stairs to board the bus.  It is dark, being it is night time there are no running lights inside.  I glance down the isle to head to my seat and notice a woman sitting near the middle.  She glanced up briefly as I moved down the isle and then back down at her phone.  I maneuvered myself with my bags into a seat just ahead of her’s and settle in for the long ride.

Long ride

For some of you that know me, or follow me on Twitter I am heading back to see my other girlfriend.  It will take about 12 hours by bus to get there.  Most of you are shaking your head but let me explain.

I have been working on going back to see Lilly for a few months now.   One hold up was my passport.   Second was how to get there.   I had booked the days a while back to ensure we were both available.  It was how to get there which was the next hurdle.   This has been an eye opener to say the least.

First is that flying is fine if you have a long term plan.   Don’t every wait till last minute.  The cost went up and up from around $280 to $800.  Fucking insane.  So that basically scraped
that option. 

Train was proposed by a coworker and that sounded like a good idea.   Unfortunately the lay over in Buffalo was 10 hours so I scrubbed that one quick too.   That left driving as the only option. 

So I spent many a day researching the drive with toll roads and what options I have driving down there.  After many hours I came across a suggestion for bus.   Never occurred to me.  When I looked it up I found it was cheaper for gas then driving.  Granted I add a few hours to travel but I don’t have to stress when travelling through states and all the toll roads.  Plus I can sleep, which I suspect I will need coming home. 

So with this decided and my passport being delivered fairly quickly I booked the bus and started to work out timing.  Luckily it looks like it won’t be overly complicated using transit.  Hopefully things go smooth and weather is in my favour. 

Needles to say it has been a crazy few weeks in trying to figure this trip out.  Everyone who knows has been supportive and even offer suggestions.  With only a another day to go I will be heading down to see Lilly which is way over due. 

When planning long distance relationships rendezvous it seems planning your travel plans early is the best option.  Last minute just doesn’t work (unless you are going some place designated as vacation then it seems you can find deals).  Luckily I have found a cheap solution that can work hopefully for Lilly when she plans to visit next.

With that I will be out of contact this weekend with limited access to the Internet.  Hopefully I can post some updates and maybe pictures on Twitter.  Guess we shall see in just over 48 hrs. 

Stood up

I would think I am polite and nice guy.  If I am not able to meet then I would let the other person know.  Common courtesy. At least that is how I operate.

I have meet a few women online that seem to think that doesn’t matter.   Have been ignored, deleted with no explanation and numerous other things with varying degree of disrespect.  It agitates me with some situations and others infuriating me.  Some of this is instilled from my childhood.  Primarily  being ignored.  Won’t go into specifics but it is the one thing that will set me off.

Branching Out

We have been asked by our good friends at to contribute some posts to their site.  The Quad  now has a short BIO on their site as of this week.  I have no idea what to expect from this but I am looking forward to having the creative juices stirring again.  If there are posts that have my input I will inform you of the post for you to read at your leisure.
