Pole Dance Doll

This could be a really very incredibly stupid and poor choice of words and presentation in an otherwise innocent ballerina type little girl ballerina-dancer, or something more obvious and insidious. Personally, I can't see how this got past all the editors and proofers in the  marketing department before it hit the stores and the disco like ball belies any innocent Barbie ballerina stuff.Words like "up and down," "flashy," and "interesting" (!) appear on the box.  Internet bits question if this is a real product or not, but others say it is.

Another Threadless Sale

Threadless is having a $9 t-shirt sale. I got the 4 above because I can't be expected to work out in normal looking t-shirts. The second one down is called 2012 Disclosure. :)

Stating the obvious

If you pose for a photo you can't later say that photo is sexist, as though it is someone else's fault. You POSED for it bimbo!

What is rogue about her?

Ok, I just finished watching the Oprah interview with Sarah Palin, though I hate to admit it. I sat there watching and wondering -- what is rogue about this woman? She reminds me of many moms I knew when I was a kid. They weren't called soccer moms or hockey moms back then, they were PTA moms. I know lots women that are like Sarah now. Oh, most of them seem smarter, but basically they are working moms and not really any different than Palin other than they don't have Governor on their resume. Other than running for Governor of Alaska, I fail to see any "rogue" choice that Palin has made (not that running for Governor is really what I consider "rogue," but some consider it at least ballsy). She didn't choose to be McCain's running mate, she was chosen and not many people would say no to that. Many women choose to have down syndrome babies. Many women choose to work and have a family -- in fact, most women do.

It seems to me that a true rogue woman would choose to have no children and no real job. Instead they would live off the land with their lover (who might be female) in the back country of Alaska.

I don't really like to pick on other women, but when a woman considers herself some kind of rogue -- she should have at least done something a bit roguish.

How to tell when a woman is pissed

These have been going around for a while so probably most have seen them, but they are still fun.

Judging by those the only thing that really pisses a woman off is cheating. :)

A friend emailed me this today; pass it on!

You fit this description so this is for you!
Today is International Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman's Day, so please send this message to someone you think fits this description. Please do not send it back to me as I have already received it from a Very Good Looking, Damn Smart Woman! And remember this motto to live by: Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, wine in the other, totally worn out and screaming 'WOOO HOOOOO what a ride!'

Old Guy 1, Lesley 0

So there I was at the gym for my nightly work out. I go to the upstairs room I like to exercise in and as normal almost nobody is there -- just an old man. I think to myself how cute it is for someone his age (at least 70) to be there at the gym. He is a tall man, but he doesn't look to be in great shape, not really fat, but a beer belly for sure. I like to work out on the precor machines like the one above because they don't cause me as much back pain as treadmills or running on pavement. I am feeling kind of tired and think to myself that I will just do a mile rather than the 2 miles I have been doing lately. So get to a mile and I realize the old guy is still at it and he is going way faster than I have been going and I don't know how long he had been there before I arrived. So I am thinking to myself that I can't quit before this old guy -- I should be able to hang in there longer than he can, right? I keep going and even speed up to try to be as fast as he is. At about 1.5 miles my legs start feeling sore and I get this little pinch like pain in my tummy area, so I slow way down and eventually the pains go away. Later I make it to my normal 2 miles and he is still going at it, really fast too. Finally, when I am at about 2.10 miles he leaves!

Yes, I am now paying for that. Obviously I strained some muscles or something (I don't claim to know about sports injuries) in my right thigh all the way down to my knee and although my knee is better today, Tuesday night it was rather painful.

I am not normally competitive, but I guess I was hoping that there was someone that I was more athletic than and I thought the old guy would be the one -- I guess not. :)
