Topic What's your WIP (work in progress) about?
03 Oct 2014 14:06
Part 3 of my Satisfaction trilogy, which brings the couples from the first two Satisfaction stories (see sig) together for a lusty weekend at the beach. Alas, I kept getting distracted by other priorities and ideas, then was off for a couple weeks vac. Hopefully will get it done soon.
This got sidelined. My new story (actually a complete rewrite of my first ever Lush story) is in my signature.
I'm now working on a story idea I had a couple months back with a view to using it as my entry in the current comp.
IOW, the third Satisfaction story, though about half completed, is on indefinite hold right now.
Topic Stay at home person with the kids
02 Oct 2014 13:35
We've been somewhat fortunate in that while we both have fulltime jobs, my wife is a university prof and is able to home office a lot. She also has one term a year where she doesn't teach classes, just does research, so rarely goes in to the campus. We still availed ourselves of day care when the boy was little (he's in high school now) but having a parent not tied down to a workplace 9-5 was helpful during illnesses and such like. That said, with both of us working, housework has to get done on evenings and weekends when we aren't committed for work and she often has to work in the evenings to catch up if she had to deal with family stuff during the day.

I am .. not having the greatest week but it could probably be worse.
Topic Lush marriage above or below
01 Oct 2014 12:23
Is having both a Lush marriage and a real one bigamy? Do I even care? Kittypusscat, will be my Lushie?
Topic Smooch, Screw or Slap?
01 Oct 2014 12:21
Smooch and screw. And maybe a little slap on the bum if she's into that kind of thing.
Topic Do you browse porn on the internet? If yes, how often?
01 Oct 2014 11:47
I haven't in a while, but sometimes when I have a block of time to myself, I will. I like my porn a bit "soft". No (or minimal) spitting, slapping, etc., just a couple looking like they are really into each other enjoying the sex. No obvious mugging or playing to the camera.
It's not easy to find but it's out there. I do find lesbian to be very good for it, hetero I can usually find something that hits the spot, gay is harder for some reason.
Topic AC/DC - sad news about Malcolm Young
01 Oct 2014 09:42
Oh Wow, what happened? I haven't heard anything, except this post just now!
From Rolling Stone: http://www.rollingstone.com/music/news/malcolm-youngs-family-confirms-ac-dc-guitarists-dementia-20140930
When Brian first talked publicly about Malcolm being "ill", I was worried.
At least there's another generation of the Young family to take over the family business and I'm looking forward to hearing his work on the new album.
I have a weird relationship with AC/DC. I don't think that there is another band as hard as them on my "favorites" list. I tend more to prog rock and singer-songwriters (Leonard Cohen, Sarah McLachlan, etc.) where popular music is concerned. But AC/DC have somehow broken that mold and songs like "You Shook Me All Night Long" and "Thunderstruck" are part of my personal "soundtrack".

They are both cheating, it's just a matter of degree.
Forgiveness is up to those involved. I would readily forgive the one nights stands and brief encounters; a longterm emotional affair would be harder but I hope I could see my way to it. I do believe strongly in forgiveness and in recognizing that the forgiveness we offer is forgiveness we may need back someday. We all have our failures, after all.
Forgiveness, incidentally, is not confined to the relationships that survive an affair. Even if there is a split, forgiveness will eventually be needed for closure.
Topic What would you do if you came home and found your girlfriend masturbating?
30 Sep 2014 10:12
Hopefully, turn it into a mutual masturbation session. I've always wanted to do that (I get off while watching her get off watching me...).
More likely, she gets embarrassed (since she officially disapproves of masturbation and, for all I know, does not do it) and we finally have a long overdue talk about our sex life or lack thereof.
Topic Kari, Grant and Tori leave Mythbusters
29 Sep 2014 12:23
I remember the first season when it was just Jamie, Adam, and various helpers. The build team was an interesting addition but maybe they've run their course. I haven't seen much of the last couple seasons to know.
Topic Pitt vs Depp vs Cruise
29 Sep 2014 07:40
Tough call between Pitt and Depp for me. I liked Johnny early on but I'm finding he's trading a bit too much on his quirkiness these days (he really needs to take a break from Tim Burton, I think). Pitt's a bit more down to earth both in life and roles and probably more my speed these days.
Oh, and Cruise? Never liked him for some reason. Couldn't say why. He's got a great smile but somehow just doesn't excite me otherwise.
Topic HAPPY BIRTHDAY BENNI LUPUS!!!!!!!!!!!
28 Sep 2014 16:38
Happy birthday, Ben! And Steph, that has to be one of the most eloquent birthday greetings I've ever read. Nicely played.
Topic What would you do?
26 Sep 2014 08:42
My wife isn't inclined to buy top dollar lingerie like VS (or La Vie en Rose, which is the standard mall lingerie store in Canada) so I'd probably have to get over the shock first. I've certainly haunted the lingerie section in Walmart and Sears with her a few times, though.
Topic Guilty or Innocent.

Have you ever flirted with someone you didn't really like just to get a favour from them?
Topic Post groundless lies about the person above
25 Sep 2014 13:34
Was once recruited by MI-6 to seduce enemy spies and failed miserably because, in the heat of the "moment", she kept forgetting why she was seducing them .
Topic iOS 8 iPad and iPhone 4S issue
25 Sep 2014 06:14
I run IT at my employer and we aren't even looking at Apple. No one on our IT team has any love for the company or their approach.
We'll probably go Android (Samsung) though haven't ruled out Windows Phone 8 (with straight Windows 8 on tablets) either. We are currently a Blackberry shop but there are apps for one our key business systems that are only available for 'Droid and WinPho8/Windows 8 so, locally based or not (our head office is about an hour and a quarter from Waterloo where they started), Blackberry is likely out the door. Also, their newly launched Passport's form factor doesn't really fit with what we are trying to do as well as the Galaxy Note.
Topic Sexuality & Gender - how do you identify?
24 Sep 2014 10:59
I'm in a bit of flux in terms of sexuality. I am interested in men but it's not an overriding passion or anything and I'd probably prefer a woman to a man right now but that's partly because my first male-male experience was a bit "meh". I'd give a transsexual a shot but the opportunity has never presented. I've left my status on here as "Bi-curious" (though I'd say that just plain "curious" is a better term for me) because I'm not really sure what other label will fit right now. Time may tell. Maybe I'm pansexual and just don't know it yet.
Genderwise, cisgender male for sure. Not much more to say about that.
24 Sep 2014 10:49
It doesn't work for me either in Internet Explorer 9, but does in Firefox and Chrome.
This surprises me not. IE9 is rapidly getting dropped from support by many sites (GMail, for instance, no longer supports it), which are now prompting users to either update to 11 or switch to the other two browsers (FF and Chrome). I've gone the Chrome route for now though I'm a little leery of how tightly wired it is into Google's online empire.
Topic A Glance Over Your Shoulder?

You do realise that your IT department know what you're looking at, right?
I'm head of the IT department .
Topic most important event in your life
22 Sep 2014 13:44
Tough to pick one above all others, but I'd say two stand out as major turning points:
- Meeting Mrs. Seeker
- The birth of our son
Leaving my parents' home (at 23) and losing my mother to heart disease when she was only in her fifties are up there, too.
