Well wielded words will whisk wanton, wild woman's woolies windward! Woo!

(Although abusive alliteration almost always asks an askance analysis!)

Words are damn sexy, and are fine window for peering into a new (or old) friend's soul and mind. Never underestimate the power of words. "To hell with rules!" I hear you holler. The rules of the game exist for clarity, for even in the most general missive a misplaced letter, word, or punctuation mark makes an appreciable difference in the tone, intent, or feel of the actual dialog at hand.

From the cold, dark scrabblings of my future grave I will continue to stab at the monstrous, miscreated and barbaric rise of "IM speak" in more formal, less immediate settings. "You" is only two more characters than "U", and you don't sound/look like a halfwitted, wrongheaded gimp too lazy to type a few extra characters. (It is offensive, and not only to the anally retentive - but oh so sexy - English teacher who lives in my forebrain. It says "I'm a lazy fuckwit, I miss details, and I don't care enough about you to make the effort to communicate effectively" to me.)

But then my enunciation sucks goats, having learned language through literature. Can I yet properly pronounce apropos? Depends if you're a unix geek or not.

Punctuation, yes. Spelling, no, unless you can't spell anything and then I'll
probably think you're a dumbshit rather than just careless. And the
serious use of ,,, anywhere in your posts bans you from the possibility
for all time.

I'm impressed by well-placed semicolons. Possibly too much.

i suspect you meant overhand knot, rather than square knot. fortunately, not knowing your knots is not as indicative of poor character traits as is poor grammar.

and if i'm wrong about what kind of knot it is, i'm intrigued, but wondering about the purpose and utility of such an endeavor.

Yes, of course, but teamwork is nice too, if languidly laborious.

Trey: Square knot = overhand knot. Some people also call 'em granny knots, but I'm not going there.

erm, no.

a square knot consists of two overhand knots tied on top of each other in opposite directions. a granny knot is two overhand knots tied in the same direction. for practical purposes, all of the above should be avoided. (note that this means that i don't think that tying a cherry stem in a knot is practical. that's probably just because i can't do it, though.)

Don't try to do a square's work with a granny/overhand.

I don't think blow jobs are practical (well, unless you're treating a
headache), but that doesn't mean they aren't fun.

Don't be so hasty--most things that are profitable are practical.

A fine talent! I married the first man I met that could also do it...we're a happy coulpe!

But back to the thread...caution should be used when applying "Beer Googles." This is when you've met someone at a bar (or camp) and go home and google them at 3:00 am...remember to take what you find with a grain of salt & try to form you're concrete opinions about someone from your own interactions with them. Case in point...I tried my maiden name once & got some ex-methhead lady with 2 kids that a church was trying to raise money for. Scary!

Searching on my name reveals that I apparently played the role of "First Whore" in Shakespeare in Love.

Makes me proud.

i do.

in fact, i have organized my ENTIRE life around this one, simple principle: that the g-spot is best accessed through clever and inventive syntax. what most men look to accomplish in a few brief words, i treat as sacred and elaborate ritual.

hafta slooooooowww down your words and phrases.
way down...
take back roads and side paths
to get her off...
on verbal tricks,
and slights of tongue.

inverted and serpentine are the very best sentences.
she'll moan and beg for more.
