happy thoughts

Filed under: Uncategorized — sassinak @ 12:53 am

. i spent 4.5 hours at the climbing gym yesterday and i’m only a little sore today. [it’s true i was doing routes the last hour and a half and the last hour of bouldering was lazy but whatfuckingever]

. my cats are healthy

. camping was blissful

. i climbed outside

. i climbed 4 days out of 5 [and yes now i’m taking days off until sunday]

. i get to chop wood on saturday AND see my sister

. i have a date tomorrow

. it rained today and suited my melancholy perfectly

. i like melancholy on occasion

. i realised that there’s no reason i can’t follow two tracks at once [ie date someone and proceed with my own life plan… weird huh?]

. harriet really is the kitten’s name

. i met a nice man for belaying at the gym

. yes of course he’s gay

. gas is going up

. look i’m poor and i can’t afford it and it will hit me harder than most folks i know when commodity prices rise but it’s good for the planet

. i don’t have to move even though i am no longer the super here

. i forgot i have 80 bucks to deposit from a lovely community centre

. bodyworlds is coming in like a week!

. i can pay my rent this month!

. hallowe’en is coming!

. hmmmmmmm hallowe’en costume *ponder*

. there are new questions i haven’t done yet on okcupid [most of them are sorta lame so far]


. legs AND hips
(climbing harnesses fit at the hipbones and at the top of the thighs… women LIKE shrinking there)

. it was actually a decent amount of tightening too!

. i’m sleepy

. these days i actually SLEEP some nights

. i have my health

. i have my xavier rudd cd back

. i had a fantastic summer

. my pre accident not huge bras are fitting again! [you know, the cute ones with skinny straps and funky colours!]

. really that last one is fucking awesome

. i have three classes tomorrow and none of them are subs!

. hee harness tightening!



  1. I’m happy for your preponderance of happy thoughts, especially the pretty bra one. If a woman must wear a bra, it should be pretty.

    keep on tightenin’ that harness, darlin’


    oh, and a man of my size doesn’t get “snapped up” … maybe crated aboard, nudged to the side … but not snapped ;)

  2. i decided i needed to counteract the melancholy with some cheer… and it stopped raining and all :)

    it’s no fun when you’re overweight because somehow you’re not supposed to have pretty underthings anymore. you’re fat and thus you get ugly bras. it’s fucked up.

    well i hope you get crated aboard then *grin*

    hee harness tightening!

  3. yeah … it’s my dream to be swept off my feet … by a tranquilizer dart shot into my hard-to-miss ass … then be hoisted aboard some form of transit and hauled away to my dream gal’s haven of hedonisitic hulla-balloo.

  4. Thats a very good dream. In your dream are you conscience after being shot up with the drugs? Mine goes something like that but instead of tranquilizer I get pot and indian food.


    Rock on with the harnesses…… all of them. I am currently have a opposite harness effect. I have been letting mine out lately due to, eh hem, natural maturation. Still, my underware are sexy as hell. Go boxer briefs!

  5. deeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeezerrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr! hedonistic hulla balloo! i want me some of that… though i have to concur with light dude that pot and indian food sounds a lot better than a tranquilizer dart… i hear the hangover from those things is brutal.

    the funny thing is that you’re right about the age when eh hem natural maturation actually happens. my tummy got a teeny bit round right about then and never will completely flatten again (which is okay, i think a teeny bit round is sorta cute [except in butts when high and round is just hot])

    boxer briefs let you let them out? *snerk*

    [though those are by far the nicest of the men’s underwear options available…]

  7. Thank you for the happy thoughts. We should all gather up our nice thoughts from time to time…
    Comgrats on the harness, too! You must be in superb shape! Good for you!

  8. Comando or otherwise know as cowboy in the States is a nice option accept for the certain amount of brush burn one gets when acclimated to said life style choice and while jumping vigorously on giant trampolenes.

  9. i personally prefer commando for MYSELF but i find that men tend to find that uncomfortable due to external genitalia issues so i think boxer briefs are the next best thing :)

    mmmm trampolines.

  10. FreeThinker confession: I sleep commando.

    But I will never tell what’s happening under my kilt.

  11. well
    i recently saw what’s called a utility kilt and it was one of the coolest things i’ve ever seen it. made the guy in it look hot as hell too.

    it was made of light beige/khaki really thick canvas and had detachable pockets and stuff. apparently holds either 21 or 27 beers… i can’t recall.

    commando rules.

  12. Commando doesn’t rule with new 501 button flies. Yowzaa. Reg boxers are great. With surf trunks commando is the ONLY option. Shorts with liners? Might has well sit in a barrel of Man-O-Wars.

  13. i think the internal/external genitalia thing makes a big difference to the commando thing. It’s hard to say really. I can see why boxers would be comfortable but i have to say boy shorts or boxer briefs or whatever are way nicer.

    I can’t comprehend the idea of swimming with layers… though when i was swimming we had to wear two bathing suits and a t-shirt.

  14. Actually Bodyworlds2 opened today.

    What an amazing show … They have a freaking Camel in the middle of it !!! Totally blew me away! I left the Science Centre in reverent awe of this Exhibit.

    Some of the pieces looked like stained glass … but were actually slices of real people . Talk about wild! The poses that they have set up are totally wild and the thinker dude is awesome and I loved the yoga lady.

    You have GOT to see it
