In The Other Room

July 16, 2011

It’s a party
But
It’s just you and me
They all rush around
we stand still
Turn,
and meet
In the other room

Push,
Push against the wall
Grab my hair,
My face
Whatever you can
doesn’t matter
as long as we touch
everywhere
In here

And it’s the outline of your face
I see it in the dark,
Up close
That smile before the kiss
That smile
That kiss

I could waste my life away
here,
In the other room.

Got You

March 26, 2011

I’ve been thinking about dudes, flirting, boundaries, sex and dating.

Here Goes, Weeeeee:

Let’s go ahead and simplify this whole thing.

If a dude wants you he’ll make it happen no matter what. If you show the slightest bit of interest (even if its fleeting) he will zero in on that like a Shark after blood and you will be 100% totally hooked. Dudes are crafty and gutsy like that, if they want it they will say it and make it known. There won’t be any ominous texts to feel out the vibe, counting down the seconds until you text back. NOPE, none of that. A dude will cut the crap and simplify it all – he wants IN and damn the consequences, he’ll figure out the details later.

Women go weak over this because everyone wants to be wanted or at the very least validated. If a dude walks up to you at a party and whispers depraved things in your ear and then casually walks away again, your vision goes blurry and you my friend are a fucking goner.

Every action for the rest of the night is geared towards him. You orientate yourself  around him being able to see you. Even if nothing happens that night, the whole next week you act like he can see you, even when you are alone! Your hair and makeup is perfect and your legs are always shaved.

And by the way, in these circumstances the dude rarely cares how you look, I mean – you have clearly been obsessing to make sure your eye makeup matches your shoes or whatever psychotic thing you’ve chosen to zero in on. He notices, but it’s beyond that point, you already have his attention. All he really cares about at this point is having his body parts inside/on your body parts.

Have fun, and hold on tight!

His Friend: Yo, I think our boy has a thing for you

Me: (silently jumping up and down and squealing inside my brain) Really? Wow, he’s really good-looking, are you sure?

His Friend: Don’t so be ridiculous, of course he does

Me: OK, ummm, I’m really flattered, we’ll see what happens I guess!

Two hours later…..(and way too much red wine)

Him: You like to kiss a lot don’t you

Me: Yes, ummm why, is it bothering you?

Him: God no, where have you been all my life?

If I hadn’t already been lying down I would have fallen over.

To be honest I couldn’t STOP kissing him if I wanted to, he was honestly the nicest, kindest, most handsome and strapping dude I have ever had the good fortune to kiss. I could not believe my luck! There is something so very powerful about a guy who is so physically….strapping, but who is SO NICE and DECENT! It was the funnest night ever, lots of face holding, kissing, lifting me up, flirting, tickles, spooning and talking.

This guy was like the jackpot!

Ding Ding we have a winner!

I wonder if I’ll see him again…

Somewhere New

August 10, 2010

Hello my Darlings,

I’ve missed you!

How are you? Happy? Loving your life? Kissing someone? Tell me!

Well, I’m finally online, finally I can gather my thoughts a little and actually write something down. I will be writing more soon, but this is just a brief update/check-in!

It’s been a fantastic few weeks, the USA is treating me pretty well thus far – I’ve been staying at a lake with my family in Washington, its beautiful and amazing and I have an outside shower, it’s my favorite thing ever, I’ve always wanted one of those! I shower by Moonlight every night, how cool is that?!

I’ve been in full relax mode:

  • I have a nap everyday
  • Waterski every morning
  • Smile
  • Talk with my family
  • Cook with my Grandma
  • Smile
  • Take walks
  • Try not to be scared of the cougars that apparently live in the Forest across the road
  • Learn to drive the family boat (I can now officially pull a waterskier!)
  • Learning to drive on the other side of the road – turns out it’s not as hard as I originally thought!
  • Catching up with old dude friends, friends who surprise you by picking you up on a sailboat on your third day of vacation, introduce to totally awesome people, make you smile and look after you. These kinds of experiences are completely blowing my mind.
  • Walking home after being out at the bars and watching the sunrise over Seattle while laughing with people I just met a few hours earlier, but who I adore already.
  • Getting serious mileage and attention out of my accent
  • Kissing really gorgeous, strapping, tall, kind and lovely dudes who are so sweet and tickle your back until you fall asleep.

More to come on the last point I made there…giggle…swoon

Reckless Abandon

June 8, 2010

Last Tuesday Mr. Argentina and his buddies where going away for the night, they really wanted me to go along, but I had work.

I wrestled with myself for about 40 seconds before I decided, I thought “fuck it” I’m gonna go, be reckless, abandon my responsibilities at work and just leave for 24 hours, I was sold! Then I lied and told Mr Argentina I would think about it. And yes, game playing is absolute shit, and horrid, but sometimes a girl just wants to play! This was nice game playing, not mean game playing.

Anyways, I digress (as per usual)

I went away, it was fun, I bonded with one of his close female friends and it was so cool. Mr Argentina and I even got to play grown-ups and have our own room at the hostel we stayed at (yes, I stayed at a hostel, I’m into trying new things at the moment, and it ain’t so bad!) He was all carrying my luggage, opening doors and leading the way…very ‘Mr Argentina takes charge’ and I was loving it. Every single second.

I’ve always thought there was something SO awesome about staying in a hotel with a lover (Lover? What am I? Joan Collins?!) anyways, it’s like you can be somebody else, and you get to see them out of their comfort zone…all vulnerable in a new place, negotiating maps, talking to strangers and asking for advice, jumping on the bed together…will you both eat from the mini bar? Will you change your name when you meet strangers? Who KNOWS! The possibilities are endless! ENDLESS!

I must credit the legendary Tim Walker for this amazing picture.

Go away, step out of your life, even if it’s just for the night!

I Double Double DARE YOU!

Bad Behavior…?

May 24, 2010

Morning lovelies!

I had an amazing weekend, want to know how it started?

I had an epic make-out session with someone a wee bit younger than me (which is not normally my style).

Bad behavior? Perhaps! Fucking fun as? You got it sister! Inappropriate/should know better? Hells yes! Do I care? NOPE!

It’s these moments that you really enjoy being single, makes you want to giggle and jump around!

He was SOOOOO good-looking. Most amazing eyes have seen in a long time, all doe eyed with impossibly long lashes and a totally cute smile. He told me he thought I was sexy, beautiful and that I looked like I was 22. That’s all VERY flattering, but he’s only 18. His opinion can’t really be fully formed yet right? But hey, nothing like a little validation!

More importantly, When did 18-year-old’s get SO confident? This guy was with about 8 of his friends, and they were all pulling one-liners on me and being very persistent…it was totally ridiculous. When I was 18, I was all about bad fringes and wearing slouch socks. I was way too scared to talk to/hit on 25 year old’s! When did the youth of today learn to hold their own? How scary! Maybe I should take a page out of their book, be a little more daring and confident and say outrageously flattering things to strangers.

Maybe I will….

You are an amazing, gorgeous and perfect person!

Mr. Argentina: Can we Talk?

Me: Um, Sure!

Mr. Argentina: So, about last night, what do you think?

Me: I had a great time

Mr. Argentina: Me too, and I really like you, How do you feel about me?

Me: I really like you too, but it seems a little early to be having this conversation?

Mr. Argentina: I know it is, but I’m traveling at the moment, and I want to be honest with you because I think your really great and I  like you, BUT

Me: Ah, yes, the But….

Mr. Argentina: But….I am traveling and I’m not here for that long I don’t want you to get hurt or anything, so I think it’s best if I’m honest from the beginning.

Me: Well, I appreciate that, but I’ll be fine, thanks for your honesty, but I have my own travel plans!

Mr. Argentina: OK that’s really good, sorry, just wanted to be honest, I really don’t want you to get hurt.

Cue: EPIC MAKE-OUT #2

Knee Buckle

Swoon

Etc

Etc

So, now I’m in the conundrum that I knew was coming, the past 7 months I have been waiting waiting waiting to kiss someone, or have a connection or anything, well, now I’ve had that kiss, that connection and it’s the aftermath and I knew this was going to happen!

The fucking inevitable………

The most predictable……….

I

Can’t

Stop

Thinking

About

Him,

FUCK.

BUT (See! There’s always a But) I always get all whimsical after meeting a dude, even if it’s not serious, and it normally lasts a few days, then the magical power of Dudeness wears off and I can see clearly again….it’s just waiting for the clarity to come back that’s bothering me! EVERY time my phone goes, I think It’s him, and it NEVER is….Lordy this is frustrating!

But my sensibilities will come back soon, I think I’m just basking in the aftermath of severe dude attention overload from last week.

Wish Brandon was MY dude!

So, I’m focussing on thinking like a Dude, it’s kinda fun/hard at the same, although a dude friend told me yesterday that it’s the thinking like a female that makes us so attractive to dudes.

Great…either way I’m totally fucked.

Beso!

Spanish for “Kiss”

Because one day you are just going about minding your own business then you have three EPIC Argentinian make-out sessions in a  matter of days. And maybe one goes a little further, and the dry spell is broken and you have that spring in your step. And all is right with the world again.

Cannot stop smiling, my mind is very much preoccupied with all things Latin American, especially the gorgeous men I have met in the last few weeks, my god, these men are gorgeous, affectionate, passionate and kind, That’s quadrouple Swoonage right there! They might also whisper nice things to you in Spanish in the dark, Cue: Knee Buckle.
