DANGEROUS DESIRES (TRIGGER WARNINGS)

There are a surprising number of people with sexual predilections far outside what is considered the norm. Some of them are simple things and some more complicated and even dangerous to them or other people.
Most of us have heard of BDSM for example. The act of bondage, and so on. Where people get tied up and beaten to satisfy the sexual tastes of bot the master and the slave. This is a for the most part consensual act that does no permanent harm. It can and has been taken to an extreme in some cases. I personally know a person who has been branded in a BDSM ritual of ownership. This to me is over the top as it does permanent harm. I do admit I used to live to be tied up and hit with a flogger and made to submit sexually. Now with the chronic pain all the time, I have quite enough of it without playtime giving me more pain. But in my younger days it was very enjoyable.
There are other predilections that can not be consensual in any sane fashion. Things that are predatory in nature. Thin…

SO YOU CAN'T SPIN THE TIRES - AKA AN OLD MAN REMEMBERS WILDER DAYS

Image
OK one more before I lay on the bed for a while holding my stuffed Pusheen the cat and wondering if the pain will ever end.
So I am 1 block from Main Street and there is a stop sign at the corner of my building. It's a 4 way stop. It's also right beside a school that often has events late at night. It's a school zone 24 hours a day for this reason.
Well people seem to like to launch their cars from that point either going west or east. I've literally never seen one go it north or south. In any event, there has been these 2 cars going back and forth for literally 90 minutes now from that 4 way stop. They floor the car and take off for a very short distance then circle around and do it again.
All I can figure is they are trying to do a burnout and literally don't have the power to do it. So after first being annoyed at the constant sound of them flooring the car, I'm now amused at hell thinking they can't spin the tires for the life of them.
This being said I hav…

WEIGHT LOSS WEEK 21 YEAR 4

Image
Week 21 I'm down 2 lbs to 351.4 lbs. This is not a great thing as in total this year I've don't about terrible at losing weight. In fact, 21 weeks and I'm literally down 1 lb exactly from my starting point.
8 Weeks up. 12 Weeks down. 1 Week no change. Most of the down was small and some of the ups where actually very large as in 11 lbs one week.
But next month I'm going to try my best to stay on plan and the only cheat will be Thursday when I have chicken hot-dogs. Well that's the plan. Being I have very LITTLE month next month, I might just stick to the plan.
I also don't want to be on credit next month and the month after that being extra money month, I want to get a new coffee maker - they tend to last 2 years and it's about 2 years (I'm hard on coffee makers).
But in any event, I'm 146.6 lbs down since I started a bit less than 4 years ago. So I'm doing good in total. The first year was the best by far at over 70 lbs lost. This year is well,…

THE CONSTANT VICTIM WON'T PAY FOR HIS MEAL

Image
Well what can I say, I freaking love coffee. We go for coffee a couple of times a week all year round. Most of the time it's in the same spot (Smitty's in the Mall). I have to say, it's getting very expensive to just have coffee now. When we first started this it was like $1.00 for a bottomless cup of coffee out at a truck stop on the highway. Now in the mall it's $2.55 for a cup of coffee after taxes. But it's less than you pay at the "well known" coffee shops and you only get one cup there.
We tend to sit there for about 2.5 hours on average and most of the time someone orders something small to eat.
In all the many years we have been going there it's never been an issue with anyone at all. Our conversations can be a bit heated at times but not over the top or angry. We also can talk about some very adult topics and I would not be shocked if someone with kids told us to shut the hell up or something, but no one ever has.
Literally the only issue after …

HAVING AN OPERATION DONE SOON

Image
So I'm going to have a rather large hernia on my lower left abdomen fixed on June 4th. I know I typed in the wrong month for my note I stuck on the fridge - but I know when it is, so it's all good.
This will be an in and out kind of thing. I will have the operation and be sent home that day unless something goes not to plan.
The last one I had done was beside this one in the middle of my lower abdomen just over the belly button. I was in the hospital for 3 days for that one. What a drag that was. The guy who did it was a little more cautious as the guy doing this one it seems.
The first one was an emergency as it had strangulated and you can literally die from that, so in a matter of 2 hours I was in the operating room getting it done.
The first one had the side effect of giving me a lot of pain in my man bit (little Dave). The catheter seems to have had a rough spot on it and DANG it hurt coming out. It kept hurting for over a week in fact. Was no blood, but dang it was not fun.

FARM FRESH FREE RANGE EGGS

Image
Farm fresh free range extra large eggs. I get these now and then for free from a friend. They seem to be producing a lot of eggs this last while, so I have had a lot of them. Below you see them scrambles (slightly runny like I like it) and hit with hot sauce. The chickens that lay these things are rather large. I do believe the bread is "Malay". They also give lots of meat and it tastes great. They as well, grow quite fast it seems.
BTW unwashed eggs (as these are) will last out of the fridge for up to 2 weeks they say. I keep them in the fridge though and wash them just before I crack them into a pan. I have to say they taste a lot better than the in store eggs. Strange thing is a lot of people don't like free range as they taste to strong of egg. I literally can't wrap my head around that one.

CREAM CHEESE, CHICKEN, CORN CHILI

Image
Cut up chicken meat into slow cooker. There was about 1.5 LBS of it in this batch. Sprinkle on 1 tbs of chili powder (I used medium as that is all I could get). Sprinkle on 2 tsp Italian herbs. Mix in with chicken well. Next, slice in a stick of cream cheese on top of the chicken.  I used 650ml of Hot Salsa (Presidents Choice brand). spread out on top of chicken and cheese.  2 540 ml cans of white kidney beans spread out on top of salsa.  750 g bag of frozen corn spread out on top of beans (still frozen).  2 796 ml cans of diced tomatoes with herbs spread out on the top. Cover and cook for 3 hours on high. Mix well and portion out. I'm a single male, ignore the not so clean outside of my slow cooker - I assure you I clean the inside very well.
This makes 6 servings. This is a larger slow cooker BTW. Cut ingredients in half for a normal sized slow cooker. Will keep in the fridge for several days but don't let it sit for more than 5 days. Will also freeze well in a freezer bag (get m…
