- I know this is silly male ego, but I did something today that I haven't done in a long time. I was curious and got out the tape measure. I was feeling a bit proud. Typical guy, right? But with good reason: 9.5 inches long, just short of 7 inches around at the widest point. The Sensual Goddess laughed and rolled her eyes, but I know she was impressed. It's the biggest cucumber that's come out of my garden so far this year. :-)
- Quote of the day (week? year?) from Aerosmith's Steven Tyler. "I'm in it for the three M's: music, money, and mmmpussy!" I guess that's the difference between a professional like him and an amateur like me. I've played in plenty of bands, and there's only been two M's. I've never made a cent.
- Hula hooping followup: I appreciate the comments. Resolving the cliffhanger, my first try was a false start and an immediate failure, but the second try was a perfect success. I kept it up and going fairly effortlessly - certainly no competition for the girl at the festival, but I do have a sense of body awareness and know how to use my hips. Someone (ahem) requested a video of my hooping skillz, so here you are.
