We have a new commander at work who likes to walk around later in the day and tell people to go home. Luckily I don't work directly for him so I brush him off when he comes by. He's trying to make sure people have something called "work-life balance." Bah, staying late is how you … Continue reading Workaholic or just love your job?
US Sports seem to have gotten very political lately. Athletes choosing to make political protest statements during sporting events isn't anything new, but this is the first time I can remember owners participating. As I've mentioned before, I think a lot of patriotic festivities during sports (ie Support the Troops!) are motivated by business sense … Continue reading Sports and Politics
Recently I participated in some pro football game ceremonies that honored the military. The amount of public attention I get in uniform is somewhat uncomfortable, and I feel like I'm being used as a prop. So a football team donates a somewhat trivial amount of money to our MWR fund, and we get to come … Continue reading Military as an advertisement
First post here: https://starandlotus.wordpress.com/2017/08/21/sex-and-the-gym/ Didn't intend to continue this line of thought but had some more ideas in this topic. What I love most about my gym is that it has many extremely fit women that like to wear the bare minimum, and fortunately for me it's perfectly acceptable here for just sports bra's and hotpants. … Continue reading Sex and the Gym #2
Just got back from spending labor day weekend with my siblings. It's interesting how we're all pretty close, we regularly get together a few times a year from across the country. I've talked before about some of the difficulties with our parents, but I think it has served to create a stronger bond between us … Continue reading Family
Isn't the beach great? It was always a childhood tradition to go the beach every summer. There is just something magical about the smell, wind, the sounds of the beach. The rough and tumble fun in the surf, the other families having a good time. It's one of the happy memories of childhood. I live … Continue reading The beach
Arnold Schwarzenegger famously compared lifting weights to an orgasm. There is something very sexual about going to the gym. The endorphins, the testosterone generation, the confidence you get in your body's appearance, Arnold was right there is a lot of overlap between sex and working out. While it may not be for everybody's taste, I … Continue reading Sex and the Gym #1
I used to be a pretty social person. Kind of grew up a nerd, but things broke loose in my 20s and I became very outgoing, particularly when fueled by alcohol. Would always be down to go out to dinner, go to a club, watch sports, whatever. I deliberately lived in walking distance of the … Continue reading Antisocial
This is a continuation from here: https://starandlotus.wordpress.com/2017/06/19/bar-fight-3/ I don't exactly remember when I did, but at some point that weekend (I'm guessing the following morning) I called and told my work supervisor. It's kind of a obligatory thing in the military to report something like that up the chain of command. Admittedly my face was … Continue reading Bar Fight #4
Till death do us part, right? Recently a friend was discussing an acquaintance who had broken up with his girlfriend because "he was no longer physically attracted to her." My friend thought this was shallow. It may be, but I also thought it kind of made sense, if you aren't attracted, why stay together? Although … Continue reading When should a marriage end?
