Fruitcake Friday!

Has it been as stresfful filled week for you as it has for me?

Fiscal woes, contract deadlines, cantankerous clients, familial strife?

If you need a smile on your face - if you need to turn the frown upside down - take a moment to giggle at these fabulous fruitcakes on this beautiful Friday. They really will lift your spirits.

My personal favorite for today is the man with the bunny rabbit. Seriously, how cute is that?

Tuesday is...

Tuesdays are always a little odd for me. Don't get me wrong, I do like them.

They aren't Mondays when everyone is being a drag, they aren't Wednesdays when folks celebrate the middle of the week, they aren't Thursdays when people really wish it was Friday and they aren't Friday when no one wants to focus on work cause the weekend is starting.

Tuesdays are largely neutral in emotional overtones and built in business culture expectations.
Tuesdays are safe and don't impose themselves on your life.
Tuesdays just are.

So for today - Just Be.

Who will be your Valentine?

Valentine's Day has a long and interesting history that definitely predates the Hallmark holiday it has become and while the Catholic Church can claim three different St. Valentines, the history of the holiday goes much further back than Catholicism or Christianity.

The middle of February (hence the date of February 14), is a significant time of the year in several older-than-christianity religions - marking the early days before spring when the weather has noticeably changed for the better (usually), many animals have come out of hibernation, birds and other animals have begun their mating rituals and it is time to begin fertility rituals and sacrifices.

A common practice in early to mid February in Pre-Christian Europe was to match up single men and women in a ritual selection process to encourage long term pairing/relationships, fertility and children. The new couples would be matched together for a year. The match would continue if children happened along and would be discontinued if it didn't work out as hoped.

It wasn't until the early days of christianity, when the church was co-opting as many pagan holidays as it could, in order to corral pagans into their new religion, that a saint was chosen to represent the date. Like many co-opted holidays, the church got part of it right - the fertility/love aspect - which was enough for the pagans to join in to the celebration.

The early church tried to discontinue the matching/mating ritual, however the ritual practice continued in several forms regardless of church pressure to stop and today we celebrate Valentine's Day in a similar fashion to the old pagans - we have our youth (kids and young adults) hand out symbols of love and affection to each other, encouraging them to select a valentine - a one true love - in other words encouraging a pairing off of young and potentially (hopefully?) fertile folks.

Isn't it funny how the wheel turns?

Now that you have had your history/anthropology lesson - here are some nice little pictures of kissing boys to make your day brighter!

Hidden Treasures

Don't get me wrong - a naked man can be quite beautiful and erotic - but there is something to be said for leaving a little bit to the imagination.

In fact, some men, are more enticing when they hide their kit'n clothes, with a sheet or a robe, or even a hand.

I like to imagine that I would be able to peek up their pant leg if I found the right angle, if I tugged the sheet just right, or if they took a hand out of their pocket and oops, the pants slipped... A sexy mystery...

Laundry Day!

Today I especially needed to do laundry - Toed the cat decided he didn't really want his breakfast so he gave it back to us all over the bedspread this morning.

To get in the mood and because I like a good 6 or 8 pack here are a few washboards for you...

Oh what I wouldn't give to be able to rub my clothes up and down these boards....

It is so gorgeous outside today that I thought it must be time to celebrate with some fruitcake!

Here are several tasty selections for you :)

My personal favorite is the CoH character. It took balls to do that in what looks like his front yard in the burbs.
