The one about the condom


Even though I'm not working, I hate Mondays. I think it stems from being a kid and knowing that, on Sunday night, that you're weekend is officially over and you have to go and do something productive. Blegh.

I've been on a huge manga kick and I promise that I will not bore you with that, however, I will tell you one of the things that kept me awake last night.

Does anyone remember the Friends episode in which Rachel and Monica fought over the last condom? It's the one where Ross and Rachel are fighting because she was talking about the animalistic sex that she and Paolo used to have + the episode in which Richard tells Monica he loves her?

Well if you don't, it's beside the point. The point is, we have two women in their late twenties who live in NYC (Greenwich Village) and are fighting over the last condom, each trying to bargain and plead.

This is my problem.

1. You live in the city, there is always a store open that sells condoms. If you don't want to go to your local deli or bodega, you can go to one of the sex shops or even the DVD place (we all know to which I am referring)

2. Are you not on birth control? Can one of you forsake the condom and just go at it raw?

3. Why isn't Richard or Ross carrying any condoms?

4. Why the hell is Ross ready to have the nastiest sex of his life with Rachel, knowing that his little sister is in the room next door??

Oh...things in which I ponder.

And on that note, happy Sunday. Here's something for you.

Brand new year and you got a what....?

Happy New Year folks!

I don't believe in resolutions because I have no discipline and will never follow them. HOWEVER. This year I have been challenged to be a little more up beat and less ...whiny (?) in this blog.

I am taking up the gauntlet. That means that I will need your help if I'm going to do an about face. I need someone to comment at least once a month so that I can tell if I'm being maudlin or not. How does that work?

Well, if someone comments that means that they've stuck around long enough to glean some sort of fascinating information from this blog which doesn't include how many drinks/tears/candles I've gone through.

et Voila?!

Anyhoo, this post will kick start the new Satellite Mind. I might even change the name, any ideas?

Besides animals plummeting to the earth (what the hell is that all about?) the Republicans taking control of the House (WTF?) and Australia being flooded, is there any good news for the world?

I've just discovered Angry Birds and Cityville. It's a dangerous dangerous slope that I'm treading on. One minute I'm trying to kill pigs and the next I'm trying to build a city.

I feel like a Roman Centurion.
