right here, right now, there is no place i'd rather be

I read that a judge is granting Mary Winkler supervised visits with her children. I hope that's all she gets. I hope this is not a prelude to her getting full custody.
She didn't get therapy for her own marital problems. She solved them by murdering her husband. A judge cannot POSSIBLY think she'd be a good influence on these children.

I was once again filling out the McDonald's $1000 a week customer survey.
Here's one of the statements I had to rate: "The $1000 weekly prize incentive was motivating to me." One of the responses was "Don't know."
If you don't know if you're motivated by $1000, you need your head examined.
THEN the question that makes me GMAO every time I read it: "What would be more motivating to you?" The choices are: "larger sweepstakes, less frequent chances to win; smaller sweepstakes, more frequent chances to win; A DONATION TO RONALD McDONALD'S HOUSE CHARITIES; A DONATION TO A CHARITY OF YOUR CHOICE; something different." Please. I consider myself to be a generous person, but no freaking way am I taking the time to fill out a survey if the money is going to some charity that will probably only use about 5% of the money for the purpose it was intended. I could use that cool thou myself.

Oprah was discussing sex yesterday on her show and one of the topics on a recent survey she did was porn. 50% of the male AND females said that porn impacted their lives. 78% of the 50% of women said that it impacted their marriage in a POSITIVE way. So Oprah's like, "Well, I've done shows on this subject in the past and had many women on the show who said porn has ruined their marriage. What's changed?"
NOTHING has changed. There have always been women who like porn. The fact is that porn ruining marriages makes for a much more dramatic show,
which equals more ratings. Nobody wants to hear, "We love porn!" It's not titillating enough. She also said one out of every four dollars spent on porn is spent by a woman. I don't know if that's a true figure or not, but it's about damn time women step forward and admit they like porn. Women who hate it have always been given a public forum for their views on talk shows. RARELY do you ever hear a porn positive show with women. Nice to see things are changing for those of us women who enjoy porn.

Your title reminded me of a line in a country tune back when I was playing steel with the country bands in the bars, and people would just go ape shit over the song:
"There's no place that I'd rather be, than right here. With my Redneck, White Socks, and Blue Ribbon Beer!"

Every once in a while, I still toss that thing in the CD player, crank the volume up to deaf, and let 'er rip! The Redneck National Anthem.:) YEEEE HAA! LOL! People would actually cry over that stupid thing!

Some of the issues with women admitting they enjoy porn is the "christian way of life". I was brought up strict Weslyan. My entire life I was told that porn, masturbation, sex, all of it, was dirty, and that you were dirty and god would basically hate you if you did/saw any of it. It's taken myself and my husband years of unprograming to help me admit that I like fem on fem porn, but guy on girl doesnt do much for me, then again I'm Bi.

Future, the song I posted from couldn't BE any less country. It's a Fat Boy Slim song...LOL!

You're right, Dustin, and another part of the equation is that women have to be careful discussing porn in front of guys they don't know well because some of them can be ASSuming jerks when they find out a woman enjoys porn.

Being brought up a strict Catholic where porn was taboo, I think is why I like it so much. I don't watch now nearly as much as I did when I was in my 20's, but when I first saw it DAMN that g on g turned me on no end. Now I find it boring and I like b on b more;)

As long as it isn't McDonalds Porn I think all will be fine.

Somehow seeing the Hambuglar naked would bother me in some way ... it may make women happy tho ... hmmm survey time!
