The other day I got myself a best badger shaving brush. I do not know why it has taken so long, because it is absolutely lovely.

And the wee tiny little terrier thought it was a brand new toy for HIM because it smells so INTERESTING and freaked out about it. Pray he never finds it.

And on the yoga issue, if it's open to men, they can't complain. Probably some of them will be happy to see a guy being so open-minded.

So is it just me or does listening to the rain want to make you be in the forest under a tree listening to the world around you?
Late at night when the world grows still, and a peace upraises from your soul, I take that chance to blend myself, with all of nature as a whole.

Attractive men have long... ring fingers

This explains why I'm single. I think my index finger is actually slightly longer than my ring finger. :(

Hands are one of my favorite things on a man but I don't consciously look for stuff like that, which the article addresses.

It's intriguing to think that much of what attracts us to potential mates may be purely physiological attributes that we are only subconsciously aware of. Human beings are just primates with big brains, after all.

Rei's ring finger is distinctly shorter. Mine is distinctly longer.

Make of that what you will. ;)

I have a significantly longer ring finger, which is cause for concern, given that it predicts a higher incidence of prostate or testicular cancer. If that's what it takes to be sexy, though... I guess it's worth the trade-off.

I believe higher levels of testosterone are also linked to baldness.

So yeah, went to a bar with female friends that had a heavy emphasis on dancing.

After they attempted and failed to teach me how to dance, I sought out some women to dance with.

...Maybe it was because it was an older crowd

....or maybe I'm hideous

but I got rejected each and every single time I asked, 9 or 10 times in a row. Which has never happened before. My self-esteem got slaughtered repeatedly, and this was all done using actual courage (not liquid courage, I was completely sober).

Not saying this is it at all but if that's the conclusion you settle on, should you rule everything else out, I'm afraid the ol' paper-bag is the only way to go. ;)

Oh I've totally gone dancing loads of times. Catch is, I do lindy hop, and that's a whole different world and I've only been turned down because the other person was tired and wanted to sit that song out.

...So you're saying I should throw a paperbag of their head and drag them to a secluded location?
Then precede to dance with them?

Rei- I'm assuming your lindy hopping isn't as intense as this

Noooope, you won't find ME doing aerials or floorials anytime soon :P That said, I've seen some pretty amazing stuff similar to that video. Someday... someday maybe I'll be a quarter so good.

I thought so. I simply couldn't pass up the opportunity to tease him. It's not often I get the chance to do so, even if he's just going to roll his eyes at me and think I missed the point, which I definitely didn't, zero so nyah.
