Corner Time

The lovely PK in her blog recently had an interesting post about Corner Time. And since I always like to steal good ideas and haven't done a post on Corner Time, I thought I'd bring up the topic.

So is Corner Time a part of your relationship?
If it isn't, do you wish it were?
If it is, do you like it or not?
Is Corner Time punishment or a time to reflect?

I hope you will join in and give us your thoughts on Corner Time. It doesn't have to about my questions. Just any observations you want to make.

The AP had a story out of Amsterdam that the government is cracking down on prostitutes, not for what they do but for not paying taxes on their business. Prostitutes were told they would be audited in typically bureaucratic fashion with a notice addressed to "landlords and window prostitutes in Amsterdam. Agents of the Tax service will walk through various elements of your business administration with you, such as prices, staffing, agendas and calendars. The facts will be used at a later date in reviewing your returns.''

As you probably know, prostitution is legal in Amsterdam and they have an area where they stand in windows so customers to walk by although I think many of those customers are tourists.

Anyway, I am curious what the readers think about legalized prositution. I think in the U.S., it is legal only in Nevada and HBO sometimes has shows from, I think, the Bunny Ranch. I think since it going to happen anyway, it is better to legalize it, regulate it and tax it. I feel the same way about drugs, even cocaine. Legalizing cocaine would end the drug wars, lower the murder rate from turf battles and provide more taxes. But it makes too much sense to ever happen. And we're still much too Puritan of a country to legalize prostitution.

I also found it interesting that in Amsterdam, they charge $65 for 15 minutes. Only 15 MINUTES? What can I say?

It also said the tax rate is 52 per cent on people making $74,000. Imagine if you tried to get that rate in the U.S. They couldn't even raise the rate from 35 per cent to something like 39.6 for millionaires. But then they get a lot more services in Europe, including health care.

It may not be popular for our U.S. readers for me to say this, but I find it interesting that the huddled masses came to the U.S. to get a better life. And yet in many ways, the people who stayed behind in Europe wound up with a better lifestyle. Granted, we have bigger houses and cars and more things and stuff. But I'm not so sure they're not happier. They don't worry about losing health insurance if they lose their job or going bankrupt if they suffer a major illness. They tend to have more vacation time and they don't seem to have the workaholic lifestyle we tend to have in the U.S. Of course, all this is very subjective, but I find it interesting.

Breast Play

Most men love to fondle breasts. How can you describe the feeling? It is so sensuous that it is hard to describe how good it feels. And to me, size doesn't matter. They all feel good to touch. In fact I still remember a line I first heard in grade school: Why don't women have hair on their chests? Grass doesn't grow on a playground.

And I assumed most women like it too. Breast play seems essential to good foreplay. But I was told by a psychology major that only 20 per cent of women actually get that much out of it. I find that difficult to believe.

So I thought I'd turn to experts on the subject -- my readers. I hope you will leave a comment and let me know your feelings. Do you like to have your breasts played with? Do you like it a lot? Can you take it or leave it? Or doesn't it do anything for you?

I hope you will share your thoughts on the subject.

It is rare that you see true evil in the world, but a British scientist named Andrew Wakefield certainly qualifies. According to a study, he deliberately faked research linking autism to the MMR vaccine, which caused some parents not to vaccine their kids. And some of them became ill withthe measles, mumps and rubella because they didn't get the vaccines.

He denies this, but the British General Medical Council has verified that his work was a deliberate fraud. And now the word is that his plan was to make millions from an alternative to the MMR vaccine. Getting kids sick to make money. Does it get any worse than that?

How does this guy sleep at night?

This and That

Am I the only person who hasn't taken down the Christmas tree? In fact, I should be doing it right now, but it is more fun to write a blog post. There is just something depressing about taking down the tree and packing up the lights and ornaments. A sign that another holiday season has come and gone and now we're in the reality of January and February, two of the more depressing months of the year. I have to get serious about putting the tree on my to do list.
Another depressing thing about the end of the holiday season is that the grocery stores stop selling egg nog. In fact, they were on sale last week with the sign "while supplies last.'' So I bought five half-gallons and froze them. I can stretch out the egg nog for another month or so. Gosh, I just love egg nog although I hate to think of the calories, especially since I am supposed to lose 15 pounds. And do you notice when they sell something as low fat, it doesn't taste as good as when it has the fat? Of course, I always love when they say low fat ice cream. How ridiculous is that?
Do any of our readers know the story of the Rex Ryan foot fetish videos? For the non-sports fans in the audience or our friends across both ponds, he is an American football coach so he has a high profile job. And he and his wife started making foot fetish videoes a few years ago in which they showed her face. Well, somebody recognized her and the videos were posted online and it was kind of embarrassing for him, who said it was a personal matter. Except that I can't figure out why they showed her face, I find it interesting that after over 20 years of marriage, they were making sexy videos. No "not tonight dear, I have a headache,'' line for them. Instead, it's do you have the camera set up? I am not into feet myself, but I find it interesting that people into feet are said to have a fetish. If you are obsessed with cleavage the way I am, that is considered normal. Go figure. Also, don't notice too many spankos into feet. I suppose there are blogs devoted to feet but I haven't tracked them down.
Speaking of cleavage, I was in the drugstore the other day and the young cashier had her top unbottoned a bit and I noticed a silver ball in her chest between her cleavage with another one about an inch lower. I was dying to ask her about it, but I had never seen her before and didn't bring it up. Now I've seen pierced nipples and navels, but not in the cleavage. Interesting. And so I started to check her out more closely and she had a one-half inch ribbon around her neck. I wondered, is she kinky? When she asked me if I wanted a bag for my card, I normally would have said don't bother but I wanted her to move to get another look at the silver balls. Isn't it nice we have blogs to talk about things like this, which I would never do in real life.
Speaking of greeting cards, I was getting one for my son-in-law and there were very few compared with the tons of cards for sons? Dont' people send cards to their son-in-laws?
And this is about gender, not politics because I don't want to get into politics, but have you noticed that new House Speaker John Boehner cries all the time. Yet he replaces a woman, Nancy Pelosi. Had she cried, she would have been considered weak. Instead, she had a tough reputation which is valued in a man, but she was often called the b word. Women rarely have an equal playing field.
And now that the holiday season is over, are you getting back in your routine and getting more spankings than when you were so busy during the holidays?
Ok, those are a few random thoughts for today, which I happen to find interesting. Hope you did too.
