Unusual Page on Today.com

I was looking at Today.com, thinking about trying it as a writer. I wanted to find some kind of directory of blogs (by topic preferably) on the network. Instead I found a girl licking the butt of another girl. Not quite what I expected to find. See the screen capture below. Maybe someone hacked into their site and they have not found it yet. I sent a note, giving them the benefit of the doubt.

Anyway, I think I will hold off on joining for now.

Update: They fixed it sometime during the day today. Someone on the support staff emailed me back and said they were going to fix it right away. So, it must have been hacked. But, how long was it up there? Funny that a page on such a big site could be hacked, unnoticed.

Addendum: Seems this has been up for at least a month on the Today.com site and it is a deliberate thing. They make money by keeping a porn link up. Wow! Would you want to write for a network that pretends to be one thing and is in fact something else where it thinks the sun don’t shine?

Let the Man Do the Work

I have encountered a new guy. Can’t say we have met as we have not met yet. We will be having breakfast/ brunch on Thursday. He is widowed with a 19 year old daughter. He does insurance for refurbished boats. Sounds like someone I could like.

What I have not told my Mother is just how we encountered each other and what other thing I know about him that I probably won’t tell her. I will whisper it to you… shh, keep it to yourself. We met on an adult personals site and he likes to be a sissy, frills and all. You may be thinking this is something I can not do, could not be interested in… and yet… I am. Not sure about it 100%. But, I always did say I would marry a guy who could have a maid to do the housework. So, isn’t this my way of keeping my promise to myself, in my own weird way.

People don’t talk about fetishes and what they like along with sex. I’m not a porn star, nympho type. But, I do know that I am not entirely straight forward. Yet, I don’t feel entirely comfortable to write about it. I know my Mom and sisters think cock sucking is dirty, not something they would do. I’m a bit on the fence there. My ex wasn’t very clean and that does stick in your mind. But, I do like being in control. I do like being the one sitting with a wicked grin while he sweats and moans.

On the other hand… a man who will perform pedicures, bake cookies and clean the washroom as sexual foreplay isn’t all bad. Of course, not all of those at the same time or order.

I used to write adult content for the adult part of backwash.com. I used to write adult stories for a man I liked online. It wasn’t icky. How could it be as long as I was in charge. I could almost be a born again virgin if I didn’t want to get rid of the title quite so much. Yes, I like sex. When it’s done well. To my specifications. Having a little man to boss around could be a good thing.

But, like I wrote, we have yet to actually meet. There’s a long way to go from bacon and eggs to letting him fluff my pillows or wash my windows. Still, as nice and pleasant and polite as I am… there is a part of me that just likes being evil, wicked and shocking. How suitable to have someone who wants that rather than someone who will think I’m peculiar and undesirable.

Technical Support on Superbowl Sunday

Trying not to talk myself out of going in to work today. It is the big Superbowl Sunday. A lot of drunks will be calling in about some trouble with their cable. Usually they start the call by saying “My TV won’t work.” Logically this is not my problem then, as I only handle the digital cable. Your TV is your own problem. But, what they really mean is the game isn’t coming in on their whatever inches TV. They always tell you the inches, I think it’s a penis thing. Sometimes they go into detail saying it’s a plasma and they have hd (a very popular boy toy), and surround sound. No doubt they are having a mid-life crises, watch way too much porn or have some other lack they make up for with their TV system.

Anyway, I get tired of listening to them rant at me. Most of them will at least listen and try to work with me at getting it fixed. There are the odd bunch who call me for help and then don’t listen to anything I tell them to do. I laugh at those and try not to get frustrated. I can easily book a technician to come out to their place, tomorrow. So, if they won’t work with me I just do that. After all, it’s not me that called looking for help. Work with me or don’t, their choice.

The most aggravating calls are from men who are sitting there watching their big penis TV systems and drinking and then something happens, like they push the wrong button on the remote. They phone up having a fit, cursing the cable company and myself. They seldom listen, too busy cursing and spewing. Then, when I book them a tech, they yell and scream about not being able to watch the game. Like I care. At that point I’d be quite happy to cut off their cable for the rest of the year.

I hope I can make it through the day at work. I’ve already been trying to talk myself out of going. It would be so easy. But, I’ve been burnt out and called in the past two days already. I’m sure a few others won’t show up today so I am going to try to be there. Not likely we will get a go home early either. Terry Lynn says the game is likely to run till after 11:00. It starts at 6:00. What a waste of a day.

The Monthly Madness

This was my column for Bewitching Vagabond at BackWash today.

Today’s babble will probably squick some of the boys/ men, so you have been warned.

It’s a period thing. When I was younger I didn’t notice anything about myself changing at this time of the month. I can’t say the same about the age I am now. Maybe it’s part of upcoming menopause or just the winding down of the female brain in general. I have nothing scientific, just mad science.

But, I have noticed a definite difference in myself in the day(s) before and during that time of the month. In total it’s not quite a week of time. I get a lot more sensitive and I have a big tendency to fall into a deep pit of depression. I’m writing this cause today I really can’t write anything else, I’ve been trying. I feel like my life, all the negative things, are piling in over my head and I’m being left in some hole to dig my way out when I wake up and feel better one day.

Yesterday I woke up and knowing I’m going through a bit of a rough spot I decided I would compile my limited funds and go out for breakfast. That usually cheers me up. At the very least I like the smell of bacon and eggs and when I’m out I don’t have to clean any of it up or get zapped by the bacon as it fries. All good things.

I made the mistake of feeling optimistic enough to look at the dating part of Craigslist. Why do we sabotage ourselves with this swill? I read a post that seemed really sincere, someone else feeling alone in the big city and wishing to meet someone. I was wrong, well sort of. I wrote a note. He replied. I sent another one and that was it. I made the fatal flaw of being honest. You see, men only want porn models, not attractive real women. It doesn’t matter who you are on the inside, only what you are on the outside.

I am sorry I let that one dickhead spoil what I was trying to make of my day. But, it did. I didn’t go out and I spent the day feeling awful and the most I did was wash dishes and make a blog post from a photo I had taken on Sunday. Pathetic. Normally, I would have gotten angry and not been down on myself, life and everything. But, it’s that time of the month and I seem to get sucked into this portal of despression so easily.

I’m glad it is about the last day today. I am pushing myself out the door once I give this a quick spellcheck and post it up.

I know I’m not the only one going through this kind of madness at this time of the month. I never really understood it till now. I’ve always thought it was just part of someone’s outlook in general. But, I’m not a moody person, I am usually optimistic, open and friendly. This is just not me and yet I am having a hard time overcoming it. I’m glad it’s only once a month. Easier to think of it as just 12 times a year, that sounds like a lot less.

Anyway, my sympathy to the other women out there who go through this (or worse) at that time of the month. Don’t do something you will regret later. Try not to email anyone in any heat of the moment. Do your best to pull through cause you know it will only be a few days.

See you later.

Should you be curious… it’s true. I am on a mouse for sale at CafePress. You can also get me on a coffee mug, a canvas bag and other accessories.

Men’s Fashion Blog?

Fashion Advice and Fashion Tips for Men
Selling themselves short to call it a fashion blog. Although, maybe this is what a men’s fashion blog would be. Not all that gunk they stick into women’s fashion blogs/ magazines.

More sites for men…

Manly Web Biographies of real men. Not just girls, sports and entertainment. I knew there had to be more to men! 😉

Manly Thoughts is looking for writers. It used to be a site about more than reality TV. I remember it from a few years ago.

Seeking Writers, Humorists, and Ponderers!!.

I, Rob Daugherty, am seeking individuals with ideas and opinions to take over and build this site into something that it should be. And it doesn’t have to be just men. Ideally, I’d like to have women’s views on things so that men visiting the site can continue to make feeble attempts to understand this whacked-out species.

I do not plan on selling the domain name. However, I can create specific subdomains for content providers allowing them complete control over their particular area of interest – including their own passwords and advertising/income methods. (Complete control to a certain extent – I will not allow gratuitous sex and violence, porn, excessive vulgarity, etc. One doesn’t have to be disgusting to get their point across, even with a site called ManlyThoughts.)

Thank you,
Rob Daugherty, webmaster

Stumble Upon Your Matches

Romance at StumbleUpon?

So far the men I’ve looked at are married, gay or addicted to porn. Just my first impression based on the sites they’ve reviewed. But, if a guy has links to porn and nothing else… what would you think.

I’m still holding out hope for romance. But, at times I feel like I’m standing over a cage of starving lions and wolves holding out a raw, bloody steak and hoping my arm doesn’t get ripped off.

Beer Comercial

Last night I watched a movie about how women and men were sterilized against their wishes. It was called Heart of the Sun or something like that. Anyway, during this sensitive movie Molson’s beer ran an ad (at least 4 times) in which men are secretly watching a group of women skinny dipping in a lake, using binoculars. The women are not aware of the men watching them.

First of all, the amount of skin shown on the women shocked me. I really could not believe an ad showing breasts and butt like that would be allowed past the censors. The men were fully clothed. Actually, the only thing missing was for them to be holding the binoculars with one hand and stroking their cocks with the other.

Secondly, the whole idea of making a beer commerical about an invasion of privacy is just too much. Women are abused this way every day. That does not make it ok to use for a beer commerical. What are they really selling? How many people do you think will remember which brand of beer that was? Most will be trying to tape the commercial so they can save the nude scenes and share them with others. There are whole websites devoted to upskirts, in which men take secret pictures of women. It should be illegal, women should be protected from this kind of abuse but we are not. Instead we are now being used to sell beer.

Here is what I wrote to Molson this morning:

Last night I saw Molson’s new beer ad at least 4 times, the one with the women skinny dipping and the man (then men) watching with binoculars. No doubt this does happen at some lake somewhere but that does not make it ok for a beer commercial.

I was angry each time that commercial came on. To me Molson is abusing women to sell beer. Molson has sold our right to privacy and our safety for its profit. I doubt anyone who would approve of that ad has ever been violated, had their home invaded/ robbed or been phoned by peeping toms to comment on how they looked stepping out of the shower moments ago. Women are abused in this way every day and now Molson is selling beer on it.

There is also the issue of how much of the women’s bodies were exposed for that ad. I as pretty shocked at the amount of skin, breast and buttocks shown. Molson has definitely crossed over the line from “cute” to soft porn.

I hope they will pull the ad, but I doubt it. No doubt it will sell a lot of… beer.
