|02:46 pm - Women and money, as well as a dream|
This morning I caught a spider. He had a black body and long red legs, and was of a decent size for a house spider.
I scooped him up and took him outside. He landed in the grass and scampered away.
My car is nearly out of gas, and I can't take a dime out of my checking account. If I did, I would overdraw the account by a few cents when my mortgage check was cashed by my bank.
On the bright side, I can probably fill up using my credit card. Never was I more thankful that money doesn't actually exist before.
I've spent some time recently with lots of women. Erien over email and IM, healing_coyote over the phone, singingwren over lunch and email, and Tina in person. It's been nice, though I admit I've been missing shizukagozen.
I'm very thankful for each, and have come to realize that sometimes you don't know how important a person is to you until you hit one of those points in your life where they mean everything to you.
Today was also a day to add some random Chaos Workings to the Generator I also fleshed out my PSA page a bit.
Perhaps most interesting, though, was a dream from last night. I was at some PCCO event and they auctioned me off for their profit. Amusingly, my Mom offered me up for auctioning.
Basically, it was one of these bachelor auctions, where men are auctioned off for a date for charity or something. what the women were bidding on me for was unclear (i.e. I don't know what they got out of it, other than the vague idea that they'd "have me" for two nights during the event), but I was the last man to be bid on.
There was some scattered bidding, but in the end, I went to rubydolphin for $133.
She got me for the two days, but there were some catches to this because I went for the most money:
- I had to pay for the PCCO's entertainment (some lame band) for the second night
- I had to pay 1/3 the final bid on me.
rubydolphin told me that she'd bid on me to keep others from winning and taking advantage of me. Who the others were is unclear, but one in particular stood out: the elf-chic from Summerset (if you're into dream interpretation, I'll bet this looks like I'm afraid of women who are "unsafe", I imagine).
So rubydolphin and I more or less wandered around, avoiding certain women who had bid on me (the elf-girl in particular). We ended up hiding in a large room with sloped ceilings, and I found that I had problems with my boot laces: the laces were fuzzing up and coming apart.
The dream fizzles out after that.
Erien, I was amused to hear, determined that she would have purchased me outright at that price.
For a guy who couldn't be sold for a dollar seven and a half years ago, that's not bad.
But that dream inspired the following poll:
If I were up for auction, what would be worth placing a bid on me?
An evening of talking.
A workshop given to your Grove (or you, if you're solitary)
Dinner and a movie (or some other form of "date")
An evening or two at a festival alone
The chance to make me embarass myself
To have me cook for you or your Grove at a festival
A ritual done for you or your Grove
Something listed in the next question or comments
Let's say my Grove did put me up for auction to raise money. What would you like for your money? (leave a comment if you hit the char limit.) No, you won't offend me.

woah, i assume i was allowed to answer more than one on that?
Hehe. Of course!
Dare I ask what you're doing to that bottle?
HA SECOND TIME THIS IS ASKED
there's a screw top on it!
So you're. . . unscrewing it. . . with your. . . lips?
I could use a cold shower.

See? It's stuff like this that makes your lj so entertaining. LOL
Believe me, I'm quite glad I can provide amusement :) It's fun, and always entertaining for me, as well.
woah, i totally used the same phrase without even looking.......
Obviously, we should be providing amusement together. . .
*laughs* Maybe one day we'll manage to work something out.
i don't think you could handle this
You're almost certainly right.
But, of course, we'll never know if I don't try, will we? Honestly, experimentation is the only way to discover if something is possible.
Besides, you have dibs.
The only reason I say this is because you have mentioned a low sex drive. And I have (as if I need to say it) a remarkably high one. Did I ever mention that was actually how my first and only boyfriend ever broke up with me? He said I pressured him for sex too much.
Anyway, whenever you feel like experimenting, I will with absolute certainty be up for it.
Well, it all depends, I suppose, on who it is. In general, I have a low sex drive. I don't think about it often, nor is sex really important to who I am.
Actually, in general, when I'm talking about women, I don't think of them in terms of sex, but in terms of beauty. I like beautiful things.
Now, the fact that I have a low sex drive in general, though, doesn't mean that I always have a low sex drive. Certain women can throw it into overdrive. . . And once it's there, well, I've never seen it run out of steam. . .
So my sex drive, if it's anything, is situational. That's probably the best word for it.
always glad to provide amusement.
i'm just sucking it out of the screw top!
I suspect putting yourself up for auction would solve your empty gas tank/beleaguered checking account situation.
Also, I am highly amused by "PCCO's entertainment" being "some lame band." Because we all know that's totally untrue in real life. ::cough::
Who is this elf-girl from Summerset? I wonder if she's the elf-girl from PSG a couple years ago... she IS an Ohioan... was she 1) extremely cute with large dark eyes and a beautiful body, 2) wearing elf ears, 3) naked, or any combination of those?
I found that I had problems with my boot laces: the laces were fuzzing up and coming apart.
Well, I'm sure you know what they say about men with problematic bootlaces.

LOL, I didn't read carefully the first time and missed the part where you said it was a dream!!!
Actually I had a dream about you a couple nights back. Or rather you were in my dream. I'm not sure why, as we don't really know each other all that well, even though I enjoy reading your LJ. Maybe that's why...I've been reading your entries a lot lately. Anyway in the dream we were at a method actors' workshop given by Viggo Mortensen. Rod was there too. Viggo had us all visualize one hand as a sword, and the other as a poem. It got fuzzy after that so I'm not sure where my mind was going with it. But it was rather nice, what with Rod, you and Viggo all there!
It might be quite amusing to watch an auction in which you were up for bids ... I doubt the outcome would be as amusing.
Perhaps my imagination is dire.
Well, I know it's dire, but it's also the most awesome thing I have to my name.
