Marriage And The Art Of Conversation

Good stuff.

My Midlife Mayhem By Louisa Simmonds

It is a Tuesday night and a middle-aged couple loll in a semi-vegetative state on the sofa in front of a gripping episode of Downton Abbey. Half-eaten plates of re-heated Thai dinner lie on the floor. The wine bottle is empty.

The dog, more commonly known as ‘The Princess’  to the family, suddenly leaps off her half of the sofa and looks intently at them both.

‘Daddy, I need a wee. Can you take me outside, please?’

‘Do you need a wee, Princess? Daddy’s worked hard at the office today and is a bit tired. Ask Mummy?’

‘But Daddy, Mummy’s worked really hard all day too. Because as well as her day job, she has looked after those teenage parasites you helped create and cleaned up after you too. So she is quite tired as well.’

5 Life Lessons as Explained by My Cat

#4… Do not forget that Helica!

Be Awesome in Your Own Fur

1. Take Pride in Your Appearance

We are divine, noble, and gorgeous creatures by nature. Therefore, appearance is everything. Every chance you have, be sure to lick yourself to keep your fur in place and looking glossy. Bask in your glory on a windowsill and allow other people to admire your exquisiteness. Nap.

*Disclaimer: Cats have impossible standards of beauty. Do not attempt to live up to such. Focus on your natural beauty. Gone Catawampus does not recommend licking one’s self as a practice of cleanliness. Please use normal human methods. Thank you.

2. Know Your Comfort Zone

I don’t mean that you should hide under the bed all day. (Though it is useful when the evil vacuum is out.) Discover where that smell is coming from. Go see if you can climb that new bookshelf.  Figure out what is…

Rookie Mistakes
Five critical deadlift missteps you need to fix.
Deadlift with proper technique for injury prevention and muscle growth

It’s easy to think you’re doing the right thing in the gym, but you may be dropping the ball. Certain exercises are more technically demanding than others, and learning their major cues just once may not cut it in the grand scheme of things. Getting “comfortable” with certain movements can sometimes allow a lifter to “slip” into form that’s less than perfect. Not to worry, we’ve got your back. The Rookie Mistakes series serves as a call to action for lifters of all experience levels to practice perfect form on the road to achieving fitness success.

Words of Wander

Now and again (okay, all the time) I get an idea in my head and BOOM, I have  to act on it there and then.

That might have happened today.

As you might know, I’m currently gearing myself up for the Cardiff Half.  I’ve got a fair bit of time to prepare myself, but if i’m perfectly honest I have never been that good a runner.  Don’t get me wrong, I love keeping fit.  I’ve got to the point where I actually enjoy going to the gym.  But long distance running is a whole different kettle of fish; my endurance is pretty low.

Before the Cardiff Half I’ve also got the Cancer Research UK Race for Life – an event I’ve been desperate to do for a very long time but have always somehow let it slip off my radar.  As a beginners race, I signed up to the…

Would You Have a Threesome with Two Opposite-Sex Partners?

Hmmmmmmm….Would I? :))) I am not sure. I was taught by life to never say never so… But I’ve never had a chance to even contemplate that yet.

PushUP24

Threesomes and other forms of group sex are ever more visible in the public sphere, yet little research examines people’s interest in and experiences with different group sex configurations.
