i watched some youtube this last weekend and saw chris pegg on the letterman show, so then I checked out some "SPACED" episodes on youtube, and they are pretty funny. If I were going to be here longer than 2 months I'd be ordering the dvd's on amazon. ha
Nothing new on base here. we had some hardy sturdy dark haired macho portugal troops here the last couple of weeks, which made the gym time lots of fun. And then today was market day where they have a bazaar set up inside the gate. I like shopping around for gifts to bring home, and then also some of the guys who work the booths are fun to talk to and let them practice their English. There is one guy I like to sit in his carpet booth and chat with, he's got the best dark eyes. afghan guy. hmmm
not much else except it was HOT this weekend and i got a super short buzz cut, and it feels nice and butch and also I think maybe just a tad bit younger looking, i dunno.
I continue to work out at the gym, and thanks for the comment about doing some cardio after my workouts instead of before, I am trying that this week jsut to shake it up a little.
have you ever heard about the phenomenom of guys' attraction to asian women because they are perceived as not coming from a Christian western culture upbringing, and this made them more attractive to guys who had been brought up that way, because then it wasn't like the girl was going against their religion by having sex with them? well anyway i read that somewhere once. the only reason I bring it up, and this is way out there, is that usually I won't watch any show that glorifies illegal drug use, like the cable show "weed" or something like that or that WB show where the parents laugh about getting high, and then also "that 70's show" which I would watch but hated that it showed them using drugs. well anyway, I'm watching this british sitcom called "Spaced" on youtube, and for some reason because it's british tv, them getting high doesn't bother me cause I've always been such an anglophile. ha hope you readers are having a fun weekend, regardless of how you have fun out there.

some tom of finland if they are not too grotesquely large in areas. I also have seen some pretty hot sailor toon drawings online years ago when you had to search galleries for 'em. don't see much not. this artist has a pretty cool site, although I'm not into the whole tie up thing at all. I thought these pics were nice.
my email is on the right if anyone has some hot drawings, or just email and say hey. later.

Also I've seen a bridge in London in a lot magazines that sort of rolls up and then back out from the bank, and that is another must see when I get to London. that and the Tate Museum of course.
I've been thinking a lot lately about the new trend of having a "Media room" in a house, and I've decided I don't like the idea much. Probably cuase I'm a bit of a sentimental type and a bit traditional, and I hate the way that changes in our culture are so easily mandated by changes in technoloy, for example a separate room for the big screen tv or x box. I hope it's not a lasting trend though, I mean who wants to be stuck in some cave-like basement room or theatre. I'm sure it must be nice to have a whole extra room just for the movie or computer game entertainment, especially if you are in the movie business or constangly entertaining gamers or movie night parties... maybe.?.
But there is a romantic part of me that would rather just do it all in the family room or living room, where you can walk in and out to the rooms, or back and forth to the kitchen, or be heard playing games or laughing at movies. Also I love to put in a serious film like Woody Allen's "September" or "Interiors" on a rainy day where I can watch the movie from a warm comfy couch while seeing the rain outside the window or hearing the swish of cars drive by in the flooded streets out front. maybe watching tv and then hear the mailman on the porch outside. Or in the Winter, getting snowed in and sitting there under a blanket watching a long long foreign film like "Babbette's Feast" wasting away the day.... ahh nothing better. hmmm someome is getting homesick, glad I just have 2 months left... ha
UPDATE- I'm on this random topic because I've been reading a lot of magazines and considering what to do with my house or how I could add on a bit if I work here another year.
I do believe it's nice having no tv in the living room, but I think it's unrealistic to believe that room is going to be used as much to entertain. the trend of Armoirs is over where you could just hide the tv inside, although you still had the very large piece of furniture looming over the room, obviously with a tv inside. The flat screen tv can be hung or set on a sort of sidetable type of furniture, but even it's hung it's like right there as a focal point. And I'm not saying it has to be in the living room, I just like the idea of an accesible family room as part of the house and action for the entertainment...yes this is a sort of random post
