Deck the Halls

Yep – it’s only mid-September and I’m getting into the holiday spirit already. A few weeks ago I received my first piece of mail advertising Christmas tchotchkes. That junk mail was actually addressed to my friend, Regina, who died nearly two years ago. But since I’m executor of her estate, I still get random pieces of oddness sent to my address. Then last week I heard a television commercial for the Radio City Musical Hall Rockettes Christmas Show.

Then I woke up this morning after having left all of my windows open last night and found my place happily chilly. Ah yes, the seasons are changing.

Tonight is the Big Brother: Season 7 series finale so I’m quite excited by that (and saddened that it’s all coming to an end). I’m not particularly fond of the final two contestants, but after dedicating three months to the show, I can’t very well drop out now.

Oh, and per Will’s request yesterday, here are some photos of the jeans I bought over the weekend. They were taken with my computer’s webcam instead of a digital camera because, truth be told, the complexities of setting the timer on the digital camera gives me an ulcer. Consequently, these pictures are a bit grainy…but you get the idea.

    I will not engage in Christmas hoo-ha at this stage of late summer. I won’t. I will purchase gifts with an eye towards socking them away for the holiday, but I will not – WILL NOT! – give a second thought to decorated evergreens or stockings or the guy in the red suit or dusting off the creche before Thanksgiving. I won’t. You can’t make me.

    You’re too damn skinny, Karl. You and Seinfeld with your 31″ waist. Christ.

    I’m actually not a 31. Normally, I’m a 32 or 33 (depending on brand/style). This brand seems to be generous in their sizing.

    On a side note, I must be doing something horribly wrong if the only two compliments I’ve received after posting photos of my ass are from women.

    You’re turning into quite the exhibitionist, poodle. First naked “art” photos, now closeups of your tight jeans covering your crotch and butt? What’s next?

    the jeans are good, even the belt is good, and yes, the ass is very full, round, and delectable. but, isnt compliment-whoring a little declasse (begging from the converted) ? i mean, any of us who have seen or felt your butt knows how full round and delectable it is! aside from the gap in your teeth, its the sexiest thing about you. ….. and are you wearing a cockring for that crotch shot or what????

  6. Comment by karyn on September 12, 2006 11:42 am

    If you are wearing jewelry on your hooha, I am not sure I want to know about it.

    The day is young, Snarl. Give people time. I know it is hard to grapple with the reality that it is POSSIBLE your legions of fans do not dash from the bed to the computer and start searching the web for pictures of your ass, but try to be brave. 😉

    Chris! I was not wearing a cockring! LOL And I’ve always been declasse, no?

    Karyn – I was bein sarcastic about the estrogen-laden comments!

    While we’re on the subject, I’ve always wondered but been afraid to ask – doesn’t that gap cause some, um, problems, during a certain oral act? Ouch!

  9. Comment by snarl on September 12, 2006 12:01 pm

    Oh my! So all of a sudden the personal questions come out.

    First off…it’s a gap (which is the ABSENCE of teeth – if anything, it should make it safer!). Besides, it’s not surrounded by fangs.

    So, for the record, my teeth provide no fellatio hazards. That’s all I’m saying.

    Woof! Hot jeans, laddie! And hear, hear! to all the various lascivious and complimentary comments above (grin) – hmm…thinking in response to Lise that most people have a problem with it if too much tooth is involved in the first place, no matter their configuration, though a little can be fun… I would suspect that the gap might pose a more significant hazard for women than men, given relative proportion of the involved fun bits…but that’s purely theoretical on the part of this Kinsey 6…

    This is all getting too racy for my virgin mind . . . as for the waist talk, it makes me wonder whether I should even post here since my waist is 30 inches for Levis . . . has been for years and unless something happens, it won’t change. 🙂

    Other than that, being a musician, if it’s any consolation, I’ve been having to deal with matters involving Christmas music since mid-July.

    Wow! Those jeans certainly made me Jingle All The Way.

    Is it November yet? 😉 Pendulous and bulbous — I love nature!

    Leaving the amusing comments about your bum behind (puns, i do love them) I have to point out Karl, that I was surprised at your saying you didn’t usually wear designer jeans, as I distinctly remember following you around Filene’s in High School while you were in search of the perfect pair of Z CAVARICCI’S or whatever the hell those things were…

  15. Comment by snarl on September 12, 2006 2:46 pm

    Ah, Jessie (she’s my ex-girlfriend, everybody)…those pants were Girbaud! Those were, I think, $65 back then. That’s pretty expensive on a 16 year-old, part-time Orange Julius employee’s salary.

  16. Comment by Will on September 12, 2006 2:52 pm

    Lordy, slender of waist and generous of basket all in one package. Good for you–and yes that ass DOES look good enough to . . . Oh my, I probably shouldn’t go there.

    Lise, gaps in the teeth or super-long tongues or an extra high roof of the mouth are all delightful varations that can add spice to an already flavorful dish.

  17. Comment by Lise on September 12, 2006 3:53 pm

    Not when the gap is so miniscule that all it does it painfully grab a bit of skin! Not that I speak from experience or anything. LOL

  18. Comment by Golden on September 12, 2006 11:22 pm

    Oh man, even I remember the pursuit of Girbaud jeans! LOL!

  19. Comment by Jessie on September 13, 2006 9:54 am

    Oh right – Girbaud, were they the peg-leg look? I was not very with it in the eighties – i was too busy being a SMELLY HIPPIE… 🙂
