Let's start at the very beginning...a very good place to start... Dateline, June 2013 I sat in Billy Bishop terminal just prior to boarding a Porter Airlines flight from Toronto to Newark, New Jersey...this is where our adventure begins. An email from US Airways arrived to say that my connection from Newark to Charlotte, North Carolina was overbooked. I had time before required at my final destination so I phone and offer to voluntarily switch to another flight. Thus, I avoid flying with US Airways that trip as they switch me to Delta with a flight voucher for my next trip. At the time, seemed like a great idea with our plans to travel to Atlanta in October of 2013 and London in March of 2014. Dateline December 2013 For [Read more...]
As I hit the post button we are about to board our US Airways flight to Philadelphia for our connection to London before our drive with Molly and Michael to Bristol. We have been warned that Molly's car is small, so hoping @MrsStranded and I packed light enough. Oh, right...knew I forgot to mention...I have been packed since Sunday. Was a bit over excited about all that was happening. That plus the fact of having no time with being busy with my teen daughters on Monday and a class that @MrsStranded and I take on Tuesday. Normal stuff, you know. Wait, I forgot to explain something else. Dammit. What did I forget? Oh yes, from now on @strandedGF shall be forever known as @MrsStranded. Evolution, my friends... Did I not mention the [Read more...]
The month of February 2014 has not been a stellar one. Has been a rough patch for Laura (@strandedGF) and I but, waking up this morning, the bright end of this tunnel has begun to focus. By rough patch, not suggesting we, as a couple, are having issues. Quite the contrary. After this month, I suspect we will be closer than ever. Due to Laura working on a project for a little known overseas sporting event, our schedules have been chaotic. It began two weeks ago yesterday when, due to a last minute staffing change, rehearsals began for Laura. In the sixteen days since, she has worked fifteen hour shifts twelve times, and ten-plus hour shifts three of them. One day she slacked off and only worked seven...of course that was her scheduled day [Read more...]
Seems time to write this for the upcoming Eroticon 2014 in Bristol. The conference is March 8-9, but we will be in Bristol March 5-10 as part of something we have heard described as a vacation. Regardless, for vanilla reasons, this trip will be a wonderful long glass of water after walking through a big ole' desert. It is funny as I recall very specifically a March weekend in 2013 when Laura and I mused about going to Bristol for this year's conference. We were watching all the live-Tweeting coming out of Bristol during the 2013 conference as we ate our breakfast. Of course, this was all before knowing about Eroticon USA that we were happily able to attend back in October. Regardless, this is our introduction for Bristol, as many of [Read more...]
Initially written on January 16, 2014 I know...I know...you were all expecting the continuation of The Evolving Atheist in the same tone as the rest...but this one is different. As I begin typing this one out, this was not what I expected either. The waiting room is rather dark and mysterious feeling. Although, considering what they do in this place, my own gestalt may be adding in the mysterious. Truth, however, as one in the designer side of the construction/millwork community...they should have done better than this. Funny, on Twitter earlier today I was having a discussion with @mollysdailykiss about how the UK is moving towards educating acceptable sexual practices using shame and guilt. This place smells of shame and is a [Read more...]
Tonight, after live-Tweeting the first of the Star Wars films...that would ep IV, for the uninitiated...@strandedGF and I began discussing our dating issues prior to finally meeting, roughly a year ago (Jan 6, 2013 for those asking). *be warned, we will be live-tweeting Star Wars: Ep V tomorrow eve* The dating scene is not easy...and thankfully, we are both out of it now...well, in essence. Being in the swinging lifestyle, means we are not entirely out of it, but that is a different context entirely. So...dating...we are here to bestow our knowledge unto you. So pull up a chair, and prepare yourself for whatever horse-shit...er...knowledge we will be offering now. Honey? Oddly enough...@strandedGF is quietly using plants to kill [Read more...]
With all the ice and snow...and Toronto will likely be under a state of emergency before the evening is out...we found this box in the mail today...wonder what's inside? A box this size, it could be condoms, or a small dildo for m'lady, or even rope to help restrain her in her enjoyment. Perhaps nipple clamps or a leash for her collar...or a ball gag, as those are always fun. So many little things with big possibilities...
To all those complaining about winter...this is how we deal with it in Canada. Well, certain advantages to a ninth storey condo.
