Weekend update

You know what's really sad? There's people out there who are really offended by my very existence. They don't even know me, but they feel bold enough to brand me a "sick fuck" and tell me so. Not to my face of course, but in commentary on youtube videos I've posted. (And this is reminding me of something I just read. That we tend to lie more in emails than in other kinds of written communication. Strange but true.) Every week or so, someone will stumble upon my videos which are mostly just slices of my and spouse's life together and be totally horrified at our existence. Cue giant eye-rolling sigh. What is it? What is it that propels people to find us an abomination. US! We are the most white-bread, boring couple on earth. And we both happen to have a penis. So the fuck what! It's just depressing because one of the underlying reasons for blogging is just to show how utterly normal a couple like ours is. Boringly ordinary. Excruciatingly average. But no, weekly brandings of "sick fuck". Makes me want to disappear. But I won't because then they've won. I should feel lucky I suppose, others are being physically assaulted for their existence. /Rant off.

I made chili this weekend! The exclamation point is because it's the first time ever that I've made chili. It came out great. And here all this time I thought a primary ingredient in chili was tomatoes when in fact there are zero tomato products in it. Who knew? Anyway, spouse loathes chili (the spices) and refused to even taste it. I put it in little containers to freeze for my lunches.

Do you know that smell on your hands after you've been handling raw onions? I love that smell. Adore it. I will go to great lengths to avoid washing my hands after cutting up onions because that smell on my hands is so intoxicating. Spouse kept telling me to stop sniffing my hands while we watched tv in the evening.

Oh one more thing. Here's my weekend wound plus blood blister. You'll never guess how I did this. On my way from the bathroom to bed, I tripped on the bathroom scale (the lights were out), tried to grab the doorway, missed and fell splat down on the hardwood floor. ( And I think I finally "got" the whole idea of hardwood) I think this is a crush wound as the pinkie was in just the wrong spot under my falling body. Other injured areas include the elbow and the forehead. I'll be fine. I'm blaming the bathroom scale, I mean I only had two martinis and a little wine.....The next morning, sara had fished out the bloodied kleenexes from the wastebasket and eaten all the bloody parts. Why are dogs so disgusting?

There's more, but I'm bordering on long winded. Tomorrow, you get autumnal pics.

Someone who thinks you are a sick fuck for having a husband is a sick fuck.

Snooze said...

It's sad how people feel so threatened by others just living their lives. I could only understand someone calling you a sick fuck if you posted a video of you eating belly button lint ;-) (or is that Spouse's habit?).

Kris said...

Some youtubers just have nothing to better to do but that. Behind anonymous just emboldens these assholes...

Birdie said...

Sweetheart, I love your ordinary life with your husband. Morons who post hateful comments are power seekers who win only when they succeed in getting a rise. *Delete*

My dogs eats her old poop if we don't find it first. Vile. (Great, you've got me making this a poo post.)

Give your finger a kiss from me to make it better.

Greg said...

Aww, Torn, don't let those random commenters get to you - what the fuck do they know! (Unless the comment was on the "Peggy Babcock" video--that was a pretty cruel thing to make Serge do...)

I find it a great comfort to know there's a couple out there exactly like you and Serge!

Watch out for that gravity - it's not just a good idea, it's the law!!

My local newspaper had a commentary from a Minister. He said Homosexuals are an abomination to God and quoted scripture to prove it. I'm sorry to inform him but Leviticus is a book of Jewish laws and I'm sure even he doesn't live up to the Kosher laws therein. He said go read the story of Sodom how the Homosexuals were destroyed. I've read this story all of my life and it says nothing about homosexuality. It says the people were evil. It says Angels came to Lot and they looked like young men. It says the men of the city told Lot to send them out to be gang raped. Rape is a sin in any book but the men being Gay or not is not an issue. The only mention of Gay being a sin was Paul's personal opinion he also believed women should remain silent in church. Jesus said, "judge not lest you be judged." Rant over. ed

Talk about dogs and digusting: our current dog and our first dog both love(d) "used kleenex". Eewww! We have to be very careful to throw them away in trash cans that they cannot get to.

It is nothing new. Others have said it before, but I can only surmise that some people are so filled with self-loathing, self-hate, depression over their own failures that the only way they know how to compensate and to make themselves feel better about themselves is to tear another down. Perhaps they are jealous of your happiness. Perhaps your sense of "wholeness" about life threatens their own insecurity about their own.

From everything I've seen you and Spouse do nothing to interfere or to deny others the right to live as they wish. There is no reason why others should not give you two (and anyone else) the same "space" to live you lives as you wish.

I might challenge your assertion that your lives are boring, but threatening to others? No way.

Lemuel said...

FWIW, side to Ed: there is more than a few scholars of the Old Testament that affirm that the real sin of Sodom and Gomorrah (Lev 19) did indeed have nothing to do with homosexuality, but rather, of all things, a failure of "hospitality to strangers." In the OT, welcoming the stranger in your midst (especially in desert cultures) was vital. Lot offers such hospitality to the strangers (angels), but the rest of the town wants to violate both the strangers and the "law of hospitality". The rape of the daughters and the desire to have sex with the strangers are really only incidental to the violation of the hospitality.

Lemuel said...

oops! brain fart! Gen 19 not Lev 19! Sorry!

Lacey said...

Maybe a few people on youtube left neg. comments or hateful comments but don't WE, your loyal everyday readers, negate all that? WE love you.

The Neighbors Will Hear said...

Wait. "Sick fuck" is an insult? I've only ever used it as high praise. Soon you'll be telling me that I'm meant to be insulted when people call me a slut.

Oh, and it's totally not worth injuring yourself just because you've gained a few pounds, you sick fuck.

don said...

Dude! You need to hang out with the boardies a little more. When someone indicates that something is "sick" that is a good thing. For example, "the dude on that fixie is sick!"

Roxrocks said...

You like onion smell on your hands? Wow, you really are a sick fuck!

*snort*

Love ya babe, stay on your feet.

Rey D said...

You guys are sick, I've seen pictures of you making love to your TV before it even comes out of the box. Sick, sick, sick.

Mark in DE said...

Most religions tell their members that we are 'sick fucks', so I blame most religions for this intolerance. What I don't understand is what makes those name callers sit and watch your videos, then comment on them?

You made chilli w/out any tomato products? Must be a very different kind of chilli than what I'm used to.

Hope your injuries heal quickly!

Mark :-)

Richard said...

I guess I should not be surprised that people are posting comments that brand you as a sick fuck. It just makes me more disappointed in people. I think you should continue to post your videos. Don’t let them intimidate you. Show them how wonderful your life is. They are probably jealous that you are in a loving relationship and they are lonely people who can’t maintain a relationship with a woman. So doesn’t that make them the sick fuck?

mainja said...

God. People suck. Sigh.

Craze said...

I truly don't understand small minded people who don't step out of the box and just accept that we're not all alike.

Yeah for making chili! I love the smell of the kitchen when I cook it.. not so sure about the smell of onions on my fingers though.

Damn scale had to get in your way huh?

la pequena poopita said...

I wouldn't take those comments to heart. I've found that the majority of people who write that crap are usually between the ages of 12 and 16, have no life experience beyond their own sheltered and limited existence and will most likely find their way out of the closet within the next ten years.

How could someone not like chili? Beyond bizarre!

franck said...

I'll never understand why some people get so upset over what I do in the privacy of my bedroom. As far as I'm concerned it's their problem.

And you set out to illustrate your point of the first paragraph with the following paragraphs, right?

Mel said...

Sounds like a weekend full of perversions to me. And your finger injury is just proof that teh gay is hazardous to your health. The Baby Jesus wouldn't possibly have allowed it to happen otherwise

I say post more videos. Lots more.

justabamaguy said...

Hey Sticky, don't let those bad comments get to you personally. It's difficult I know but keep your chin up and realize you have more fans and supporters than detractors out there. Glad the chili turned out well. You should share the recipe with us fellow cooks. :) I have cats if you want to know what is more gross is to watch dogs eat cat biscuits out of a litter box. Now that's gross. Especially if you have scented litter that clumps. That's really gross!! Have a good week and keep on writing!!

Summer said...

I'll never understand why people can go out of their way to be mean and hurtful. They must have a rotten soul. Keep on posting your videos and ignore the ignorant jerks. I know it's hard.

Dogs are gross but I can top your bloody kleenex story. I was mortified once when my dog got in the bathroom garbage and it was that time of the month. I was so embarrassed and no one saw it but me.

em said...

What I love is that they have to find their way to your vids, then they watch them. They are closeted, just like the homophobic politicians. People talk about what they are interested in... it doesn't matter if they attempt to negate it or not.

Also... did you just confess to falling over because you were drunk? Professional.

Fatinah said...

I'm sorry that you had to feel that person's hate.

How did you make chili without tomatoes?? We actually just had a chili party Sunday and there was a whole can of tomatoes, tomato sauce and tomato soup in it....

Anonymous said...

I would not give any creedence to anyone who bashes you. They have no right. Don't give them the time of day...

Java said...

Proper chili requires at least a little bit of tomato product. Unless you forget to add it and don't notice the difference, as I did once. Otherwise I always add a can of diced tomatoes and/or tomato sauce/paste.

If you are such a normal, boring couple, why do I find myself drawn to your blog every day or so? Is it because I'm boring myself? (possibly)

dirkmancuso said...

Don't let those small minded idiots get to you. For myself and your legion of fans (and don't scoff -- we ARE legion, mister!), you may be totally normal but you are far from boring. What you ARE is totally addictive which is why we come back day after day after day...

((((HUGS))))

I’ve decided not to comment on a teachers blog for some times (bad English), but to blame you and your partner, that’s silly, but that’s the world, there are few magnificent things and there is a lot of digestion waste too.
