When I first got him, one companion wanted him to live on the fireplace mantel. She had unusual tastes. I have to admit, I don’t keep the overtly sexual statuary in the “public rooms” of the house. Bachelor or not, it just raises too many questions when company calls.
I posted him because it’s spring and the juices are flowing. I’ve gotten my garden cleared and I’m looking forward to planting in a couple of weeks.
I don’t think pagans are quite so “in your face” with the sex now. More’s the pity I suppose, Humans are sexual after all, and it seems a shame to pretend that we’re not. Americans are a very odd culture these days. We’re more and more open about both our nudity and sex, as long as it’s not in public (PROTECT THE CHILDREN!!). Still, nudity is not sex and sex is not nudity.
It’s not that pagans are more sexual, it’s that we don’t deny it as much. Except when we want to keep the peace with our neighbors.
And then we find the secret places to dance nekkid.
Today there has been soft snow since a little before 4 a.m. It’s about three or four inches out there right now. I know that is nothing compared to what some states have been slammed with, but I like it. Snow in the desert is one of my favorite things.
I guess there is an advantage to insomnia.
I’ve enjoyed watching it as I’ve done some work on the site. I went with hot cinnamon tea sweetened with honey this morning.
And now McFiach is telling me he needs a recharge and I really should go get showered.
Maybe I’ll make chili for lunch later.
I won’t kid you. It’s going to get more difficult as I reformat the old pages to the new site. That’s one reason why I really like tags.
For six of the old style pages, it takes about two hours to reformat, fix the typos, put in the tags, create the redirect pages, upload entire site, upload the redirect pages, and test everything. I have to reload the entire site each time, sometimes there are new tags. Six at a time is about the most I can keep track of with the redirects in the old page locations. If my math is right, I still have something like a thousand pages to go, which means something like more than three hundred hours before I get it all transferred. For this site alone.
In addition to that, I still have to write new content for all three blogs. I have to take care of the offline life things so I can do this. It’s a one man operation.
I want to redo the banner on this site and do something with that tag cloud thing so it works without the ornaments. That means I have to figure out some CSS.
On the other hand, the “Words & Phrases” thing is turning into a real resource. I should have thought of that years ago.
