As part of my ongoing quest to simultaneously please and piss off everyone all at the same time

I've purchased a nice shiny new macbook air and installed vista on it (I'll most likely be installing W7RC when I get back from DC as the scuttlebutt from my friends at MS is that W7 is what vista should have been).

and

in keeping with tradition

I've already done broke it.

well not really

but I had to go to the apple store and swap my laptop out for a new one because the little battery which keeps the time/date information stored in the EFI (apparently that is mac for bios) was doa.

a minor annoyance but the look on the apple "geniuses" at seeing me boot it into vista was rather priceless.

I also have to admit that I'm a more than a little bit dissapointed that the EFI is locked down and not user accessable. I'm sorry but fucknuts, it is my computer, I should be able to access my damn bios.

That said, they were relatively compliant with enabling the root account on the Mac OS partition once I explained to them that their "recommended solution" wasn't going to cut it.

anyway

I've got to pee so its time for me to head home, in happy news, they promise to have my net access at home fixed on Tuesday so I can stop stalking coffee shops for their free wifi.

be well

you have my apologies, and I'll set about rectifying that now.

as I've hinted in recent (or not so recent posts, my bad) posts.

Much has been afoot in recent months but nailing things down and getting a plan in action has taken me much longer than I expected.

Of course, now that I've done so, things are moving at a lightning pace.

The brief overview, I am moving to Israel in early August where I am taking a job as a contractor with the Israeli government and will be living in Jerusalem.

Those of you who know me well will understand this decision brings up a variety of thoughts and concerns for me however the government has made me an offer I cannot refuse (and providing a cute little studio for me to live, in the German Colony of Jerusalem - my favorite neighborhood in the city, sure doesn't hurt).

I have about a billion things to do between now and then but for now I'll settle for giving yall a rough itinerary of where I'll be over the summer. As always I'd love to see any of you if our paths cross close enough although unlike my usual travels my schedule is already filling up so allow me to apologize in advance if I'm unable to get together.

May 25-30 Washington DC
June 3-8 Seattle
June 12 - July 10 Tel Aviv / Elat / Netanya
July 13-16 Sydney (Nova Scotia sorry my Aussie lovelies)
July 17-30 Seattle
July 31 - August 2 San Francisco
August 2-8 Seattle
August 10-28 Jerusalem
*September 3-8 Sicily (tentative scheduling - buffy does that work for you?)
September 10-30 Jerusalem
*October 10-20 Ghana (tentative)

So there you have it.

So, I'm sure many of you will be wondering why the move, etc etc and feel free to ask any questions you may have but the overall gist is along three fronts.

1) After spending several years abroad, I've come to feel more at home outside the US than within it.

2)Israel is quite centrally located and makes an easy hub point for my future ventures and given that the govenrment has been most flexible and generous it became quite apparent that Israel was a better choice than the other nations which I was considering, in addition, there are familial questions/obligations which make Israel the obvious choice over the other nations I was considering.

3) Given the above and my general unease with the economy in the US and given that the vast majority of my assets are outside the US already, there seems little upside and a great deal of increased cost/risk to staying in the US and great potential benefit to moving to a place where I can upgrade from a tadpole in an ocean to a guppy in a pond, if that makes any sense.

Anyway, I'm parked outside a coffee shop using the internet as my home internet is currently down due to a failed cable modem so I probably should wrap this up and head for home.

Be well and lots of love.

I'm the first to admit that most of what I post here
while entertaining, amusing and perhaps even insightful
isn't really all the important to your daily lives

but, [livejournal.com profile] ernunnos posted this video and you really need to watch it.

It is a lecture by Harvard Law Professor Elizabeth Warren in which she describes what happened to middle class incomes over the last thirty years, and where we're going next.

Sure it is an hour long.
Sure it is a lecture at berkley.
Seriously, suck it up because it will dramatically change your perspective.

No excuses, tivo dollhouse or whatever TV show you were about to watch
and watch this instead.

I have long told my friends
that
all the women I sleep with despise me
that
I haven't slept with a woman
in more than ten years
who actually liked me
at the time I slept with them

they took it as hyperbole
and tonight
unfortunately
they got to see it first hand

a woman
whose words spoke only of hatred
and whose body spoke only of love

that is my curse I suppose
although
if I was callous
I'd say it was theirs

a dear friend
walking me out to my car tonight
said
I've often heard you talking
about how the women you sleep with
despise you
but
it never made sense to me
it seemed like something you said to appear cool
until
tonight

I wish I had an adequate defense
but I do not
the closest appromixation to one
I can muster
is
that despite my warnings
despite my clarity

they see in my someone I will never be
and get pissed off because I am not willing
to try to be someone I am not

for some reason
and despite significant effort on my part
woman love to see me as someone I am not
to create an image of me that suits them
and then blame me for refusing to become that person

the lass in question tonight
spent the night sitting on my lap
alternating between kissing me
and telling me how much she hated me

I merely agreed
what else could I do
disagreeing would only escalate the discussion
a discussion
which was already uncomfortable to
everyone else in the room

well
either that or put her on her knees
but
doing that would imply
a further interest on my part
and well
that would be dishonest

I am not a good man
I am barely a decent one
but I play by very clear rules
even if all the women I sleep with
choose to ignore them

my cards are on the table

yes I enjoy your company
yes I enjoy fucking you
yes I am fucking other people
yes I intend to continue doing so
and
perhaps most relevant

yes I am going to leave

no matter how much I say it
no matter how much I scream it

they never hear it
they don't want to hear it

because in their mind
I am someone I am not
someone they need me to be
someone I will never be

it is almost enough
to make me give up on women entirely
if
I wasn't a drunk
and
if I wasn't entirely too in love with love
for such a thing to be possible

besides
I have plans tomorrow
to fuck an absolutely delictible blonde
and
well
I'm just not man enough
to avoid such a temptation.

the date on friday went

well

into extra innings
as one might say

I find myself
intrigued
compelled

even though
I realize there is no future in it

she smells
no
she tastes like heaven

and
I

I am intoxicated

of course
I would be lying if I said this was anything new

however
what is new
what is different

is that I cannot read her
not
like I read everyone else

most women
most people
tell me their entire stories
without words
without my having to ask

it is merely written on their faces

usually
sleeping with a woman is a foregone conclusion
not because I am so incredibly handsome
[although of course that helps]
but
because they telegraph it

it is as if they say
push this button
[helpfully labeled "b"]
and I'll sleep with you

and of course
being the helpful sort
I dutifully press that button

I think
perhaps
I may be in trouble

you see
I can read her emotions
that is to say
I know what she is feeling
as she feels it

what I can't discern
and what makes her so enigmatic to me
is the lines between those emotions

normally
I can read it like a story
but with her
not at all

I can tell when
she is pleased
she is aroused
she is touched

but the story eludes me

I, quite simply can't read her that way.

I can read specific emotions
but not the process as it relates to them

I had the opportunity to sleep with her
but I declined
choosing instead
to play a game I like to call

"lets see how much fun we can have without having sex"

and

fun we did have

one part of me thinks
perhaps hopes
that I may have met my match

after all she did have the same teacher
that I did

the cynic in me
suggests that I merely
haven't found the cypher
the code
that will lay her bare to me

and to that thought
I say

so what

I have always been a quixotic bastard
and now
no more so (or less so) than usual

but I find myself
intrigued
amused
perhaps even
intoxicated
plural: (Default)
I am exceedingly aroused.

I am also particularly drunk
but that is rather irrelevant to what I have to say next
[however relevant it is to how and why I am sharing it]

I had a date today
a woman I knew briefly in high school
ran into for the first time in years
a year ago at a friends birthday party
then again this year at the same friends birthday party

she came over to day to catch up and schmooze
I invited her to do so because it turned out
that she was a great fan of bourbon
so
yeah
I was already kind of in love
[I am after all a quixotic bastard]

but while I suspected
that she wanted to have sex with me
primarily given the difference between our interaction
at the most recent birthday party
and the previous one
[which she was decidedly cool toward me]

I was more than anything curious
as to what had caused the shift in behavior
and
well
she is pretty hot
so I was willing to find out
[yeah, so I'm a guy, deal with it]

so
she was supposed to arrive at 2pm
the planned event was to sit on my back porch
have a few bourbons
and catch up

she showed up at a quarter to
enjoyed several bourbons
and demonstrated that she did indeed
know a good deal about bourbon

I simply gave her shots
of five small batch bourbons I keep on hand
and asked for her impressions

she performed flawlessly
in rating them both by quality
and in terms of the specific flavors and qualities of each

yes
I may be perverse
but it so gave me wood

over the course of this process
we had a most engaging conversation
and
normally
such a process would have prevented me
from writing this post
as the lass in question and I
would still be having sex
as I sit here typing this

our history and background
both that which was common and that which was shared
advised me against making such a poorly planned move

You see, the culture we come from
unlike your more modern american culture
is one in which arranged marriages
or something quite resembling them
is the norm, not the exception

there is a term for it in yiddish
"Shidduch"
which technically means arranged marriage
but in modern practice is something different

a shidduch is a blind date
with the express intention of determining marriage potential

in other words
it is a subtle dance in which you bring up and deal with
any potential deal breakers before you begin dating

you talk about a variety of subjects
from religious adherence, to personal philosophy to child rearing
and look for a broad spectrum of common ground

now
don't get all worked up
this wasn't a shidduch
it was merely two old acquaintances
getting together for drinks with some sexual overtones

however
given our backgrounds and
the attraction which existed
we tended to resort to the familiar old ways

we talked for about three or four hours
it was great fun
and
I invited her to join me for a play I'm seeing on friday
she accepted
and I walked her out to her car

there was definitely a moment there
when I was saying goodbye
again
one of those moments
which normally would have led to sex
but which I decided to hold back

why I'm not entirely sure
part of it I'm sure
has to do with the reality
that such an overt pass would probably not go over well given her background
the other
less concrete possibility
is that I may just be interested in her for more than sex

remote as it may seem

given her history
married at a young age
divorces soon after
highly religious until recently

it is possible
and not unlikely
that the only person she has had sex with
is her ex-husband

and
regardless of whatever energy was definitely between us
the chances that she would just act upon such urges
goes against everything she was brought up with
and so is unlikely

I'm thinking I'll take her out to the play
and see how things go
then take it painfully slow

I think she'd be an ideal candidate for the old
"lets see what fun we can have without having sex" game

as a general rule
that does more to increase a woman's desire for sex
than most anything else

but anyway
I had a delightful time
and
I'm looking forward to friday
and
after that
well who knows

recent events seem to be pointing
in the direction of my leaving the country in the next six months
so that does seem to limit the potential
although
she will be spending four or five months
in the most likely country
roughly coinciding with my arrival there
[and in fact, she has far more experience there than I do]
so
I guess
the dice are rolling
and
only time will tell how they end up

regardless

it is nice to be
excited about sleeping with a woman again

its been a while since
I've had anticipation to enjoy
usually sleeping with women is a foregone conclusion

not that this isn't per say
it just requires a bit more charm and grace on my part

I suppose a better phrasing
is that I enjoy the promise yet unfulfilled
instead of just assuming that it will happen

or maybe
I'm just drunk and babbling

only time will tell

"I can't tell you how good I was feeling. Looking at things like daffodils and clouds is wonderful. Looking at things like daffodils and clouds having just spent £372 on dinner and dropped two tabs of ecstasy in preparation for a five-hour shift with XXX-Quisite's friendliest platinum blonde double-act, that's really wonderful.

I know what the majority of you think about all this. All this sex and money and drugs. You think: people who live like that never end up happy. You need to think that in just the way men with small penises need to think that size doesn't matter. It's understandable. The rich, the famous, the big-dicked the slim-and-gorgeous - they incite an envy so urgent that you can escape it only by translating it into pity.

People who live like that never end up happy. Yes, you're right. But neither do you. And in the meantime, they've had all the sex and drugs and money."

Once upon a time a man appeared in a village and announced
to the villagers that he would buy monkeys for $10 each.

The villagers, seeing that there were many monkeys around,
went out to the forest and started catching them. The man
bought thousands at $10 and, as supply started to diminish,
the villagers stopped their effort.

He next announced that he would now buy monkeys at $20
each. This renewed the efforts of the villagers and they
started catching monkeys again.

Soon the supply diminished even further and people started
going back to their farms. The offer increased to $25 each
and the supply of monkeys became so scarce it was an effort
to even find a monkey, let alone catch it!

The man now announced that he would buy monkeys at $50
each! However, since he had to go to the city on some
business, his assistant would buy on his behalf.

In the absence of the man, the assistant told the villagers,
"Look at all these monkeys in the big cage that the man has
already collected. I will sell them to you at $35 and when
the man returns from the city, you can sell them to him for
$50 each.*

The villagers rounded up all their savings and bought all
the monkeys for 700 billion dollars. They never saw the
man or his assistant again.

tonight

I laid out my tux
polished my cufflinks
shined my shoes

dressed myself
then wrapped myself
in a lovely cashemere overcoat
and raw silk scarf

the occasion

a gala event
one of Seattle society's
premiere events of the season.

it was a grand night
I spent most of it
dancing with other men's wives

and

while quite alluring
I was content with my role

towards the end of the night
I was introduced to a couple
husband and wife
who I had been avoiding for some time

you see

for another man
she may have been harmless
but to me
she was entirely dangerous

which was why I had avoided them
despite the frequency which
we found ourselves at the same events

it is not even a question
of what I want
or what I desire

rather
it is simply
that she is exactly what I was raised to desire

a woman
whose virtues and failings
neatly meet
each and every criteria
which I was raised to adore

so while I
saw her across the room
silently lusted at her form
wrapped lusciously in red silk
I knew
only trouble could result
and kept my distance

unfortunately
life had other plans

and as I danced
with a dear friends wife
her husband took it upon himself
to introduce me to the man
and
the wife I have for so long lusted for

pleasantries were exchanged
and
the lovely lady
had apparently noticed me
dancing with others

and insisted upon a dance

it was

well

sublime

and

luckily for me

it was the last song of the night
so
we had little choice
but to bid our farewells

they departed
and
I was left with only the memory
of her entirely too supple flesh

so
lest I ponder such things
too long
I took my date
[the wife of a friend]
and went to a speakeasy
which I am tangentially involved in

to drink
to dance
to distract

and

until now
was quite successful

of course

burlesque dancers
excell at little more than distraction

but now

arriving home
in the last few minutes before dawn

I can only regret
that I allowed myself such
a simple pleasure

as I know to well
that

nothing good will come of it

Subject: REQUEST FOR URGENT CONFIDENTIAL BUSINESS RELATIONSHIP

Dear American:

I need to ask you to support an urgent secret business relationship
with a transfer of funds of great magnitude.

I am Ministry of the Treasury of the Republic of America. My country
has had crisis that has caused the need for large transfer of funds of
800 billion dollars US. If you would assist me in this transfer, it
would be most profitable to you.

I am working with Mr. Phil Gram, lobbyist for UBS, who will be my
replacement as Ministry of the Treasury in January. As a Senator, you
may know him as the leader of the American banking deregulation
movement in the 1990s. This transaction is 100% safe.

This is a matter of great urgency. We need a blank check. We need
the funds as quickly as possible. We cannot directly transfer these
funds in the names of our close friends because we are constantly
under surveillance. My family lawyer advised me that I should look for
a reliable and trustworthy person who will act as a next of kin so the
funds can be transferred.

Please reply with all of your bank account, IRA and college fund
account numbers and those of your children and grandchildren to
wallstreetbailout@treasury.gov so that we may transfer your commission
for this transaction. After I receive that information, I will
respond with detailed information about safeguards that will be used
to protect the funds.

Yours Faithfully
Minister of Treasury Paulson

I ended up
with one on each arm

and

may I just say

it is a beautiful thing

I was mostly just licking my lips
enjoying the sting
of the earlier make out session

it amuses me greatly

when most guys are flirting
chatting
with a girl

I'm kissing her

why?

because I'm an old fat man

been up to
all sorts of fun

went sailing yesterday afternoon
on my friends 18 foot catamaran

the wind was about 20ish knots
with gusts pushing 30 knots
we were screaming along
at about 17-18 knots

great fun

the windward pontoon was completely
out of the water most of the afternoon
[with us hiked out on the side]
[pimping the trapeze action]

and

on one occasion
the leeward bow
dipped under a wave
and we had to move quickly
to keep from flipping the boat
end over end

still ended up getting soaked

coming back into the dock
we noticed some high school kids who left
about the same time we did
coming back in
except that one of their pontoons
was just about entirely underwater

seems they had forgotten to put the drain plug
back in the hull of that pontoon
before heading out

so my friend and I decided to help them out.
we were just taking an apprasial of the situation
when it gave up the ghost
and the boat capsized right next to the dock

I looked at him
he looked at me
we both shook our head
but decided to give it a go anyway

it took us about an hour
but we managed to right the boat
drain the water it had taken on
educate the kids on how not to do that again
and get the boat squared away safely nestled on the dock

then we rewarded ourselves with a prehappy hour drink
and steak munchies at Daniel's

before heading off to the pub crawl/happy hour event
that we were scheduled for
which ended up being huge
we were expecting 20ish people
and we had over 50 people

not to mention we kept picking up
random strangers at the bars we visited

good times

at 10pm I bailed
as I had a date
with the brunette
a third date in fact
and
indeed
the fourth is planned for tonight

I picked her up
and
I was informed that
an additional woman would be joining us

as it was her friends last night
before moving out of town
so the three of us went hopping around
had some drinks

ended up at the private club
I frequent

which turned out to be perfect
as several close friends of mine
who have been something like hermits lately
happened to be out

including a dear friend of mine from Israel
who happens also to be a close friend of the brunette
and amusingly decided to give her the third degree
on my account

this is the same guy
who when I was in a confrontation
with three guys at a bar
responded by appraising the situation
then offering to hold my drink

I always find it amusing
how and when my friends decide to be protective

anyway
the lot of us drank, and heavily
the brunette and her friend
were being playful
first a slap, then a kiss, then another slap and another kiss

her friend mentioned she was 6 foot 2 inches tall
I shrugged and replied, "that's ok, I can climb"

there was more drinking
some dancing
more slapping
and more kissing
and the original three of us
decided to retire for the evening

I made my rounds
giving my usual hugs to my friends
took a lass on each arm
and parted for the night

as always
it remains

good to be the king
plural: (Default)
is
exactly what I had

which is good
because
well

I needed one

It started rather slow

I was at a party
which was rather work related
and was sucking ass

so I bailed

met a couple of friends for drinks
which was an improvement

but
well
not much of one

two of the boys bailed
and
John and I
hung out

some sheep
that thought he was a wolf
thought he would test me
but thought better of it
halfway through

and

we were heading home
ready to call it a night

when John suggested
swinging by the private club
we both frequent

ahh what the fuck I thought
made an illegal left turn
and headed over

we showed up
after last call
ordered some drinks anyway
and started socializing

I was introduced
to a smokey little brunette
by a friend of mine

I could tell she was skeptical
in so far as her being attracted to me anyway
but
I didn't care
I was feeling cocky
so I went with it

I leaned in
lifting her chin with my hand
and
kissed her

at first
she was hesitant
then she responded
and
by the end of the kiss
I could feel her knees going weak

yeah
I am
just that damn good

of course

women are easy
that way

bite a girl
right there
at the back of her jaw
just below her ear
and she'll melt

it is just how it is

and so I did

and

it was good

honestly she was a better kisser than I expected
so
well
we endend up
spending the rest of the night
split between
kissing and dancing

and it was good

I walked her out to her car
we talked
exchanged numbers
and
well
I'll see her again soon

doubt much will come of it
but
well
I can use a distraction
given my thoughts of late

and
the email I just received

I'm not sure
what I think

on one level
it is exactly what I expected
and
on that same level
what I was prepared for

on another level
I am somewhat disappointed
although
that disappoinment is split

half because of the result
half because of the fact
that I can read between the lines
and
well
she hasn't exactly
been honest with me

of couse
I have to remind myself
who the fuck am I
to expect honesty

it isn't like I'm exactly an honest man
true sure
I'm a true fellow
but not exactly honest

in that I mean
I'm incredibly loyal
incredibly faithful
but
truth?
what is truth?

fuck if I know

anyway

I'm drunk
well almost anyway
and
my lips are still stinging
from her teeth

which
as feelings go
is pretty damn good

however empty and hollow
a pleasure it may be

it has been a while
since
I kissed a woman
who knew how to kiss me back
and
well
all other concerns aside

I enjoyed it
plural: (wild thang i think i love you)
but first

last night by the numbers

Dinner for the gaggle: $350

Champagne and drinks for the gaggle: $280

Number of her friends I slept with: [please, I behaved myself ]
[besides they had no stamina]
[I would have needed three or four]
[just to get myself off]

Cab rides home for those that needed it: $150

Giving my sister an awesome 21st birthday: Priceless

It is good to be the king.

and I even had a reasonably good time
got the phone number of the waitress/hostess for the VIP section
[she offered]
who was nice enough to keep me company
throughout the night
so I had someone to talk to
while the gaggle did the gaggle thing

and seeing as we had the VIP section to ourselves
I think she was quite bored before we showed up
so she and I talked most of the night
I quite enjoyed it

I told her I'd call her tomorrow
and set something up for Thursday night

went home
and only had to stop twice
to let lasses out to vomit
and
thankfully
they didn't get any on the car
as I had borrowed a friend of mines bmw for the night
and
I'd hate to have soiled it in any way

got home

made the mistake of drunk IM'ing
rather embarrassing on reflection

slept very well
woke up in the morning [late]
did my daily dose of pushups and crunches and the like
[yummy]

had a conference call around midday
to talk about the deal which is closing at the end of the month
which went quite well

apparently the folks on the other side of the deal
decided to go on vacation
which freaked me out at first
but it turns out they signed all the papers before they left
so I just have to go in this week
and sign my set
and it is all good

this makes the plural happy
I've been working this deal
for about eight months
and it is nice to finally get paid

will let me clear up some stuff
might even buy myself a new car
[new to me that is]
I've been thinking about getting
a used civic or accord in the 2004-2005 range
[my penis isn't small enough to get anything nicer]

was about to have a run
when a friend invited me to join him
for a corec soccer league game
apparently they didn't have any subs
[people being out of town and whatnot]

so I dug out my bag of soccer gear
suited up
and played

had a great time
it was awesome to feel my body work
in that familiar old way

but I have to admit
it did kick my ass a bit too

jogging != soccer

even snapped a few pics
so I'll see if I got any good ones later

on the way home
I swung by my favorite Mexican place
got some black beans and rice
and some chicken in a chipotle sauce
[my favorite]

which was exactly what I needed

now I'm going to relax
watch a movie
then get a little work done
before bed

it was a good day indeed

and it remains

damn good to be the king.
