Rainbows and Circle Jerks

So the good word from my doctor is no running for a while.

What's a while?

Who the fuck knows?

In the meantime, I'll need to amuse myself in other ways. I'll be exploring the many less-appealing-but-doctor-approved options that will lead to regularly and enjoyably raising my heart rate and breathing hard.

Additionally, I'll be doing more reading and social networking to keep myself from going INSANE help me through this difficult time. Learning new things (like how to be a good blogger), making new friends, and exploring new horizons will all help this nebulous "a while" pass more quickly – I hope.

However, it's already taken a questionable turn. A few weeks ago, I brought up the term "circle jerk" on Twitter. I had read about this over here. The term comes up there quite frequently, and they always make it sound like it's a bad thing! I don't know – a bunch of friends standing around giving each other strokes and making each other feel good – I can totally get behind that idea! So yeah, I invited several Twitter friends to a circle jerk –

Actually Sandra is now Christian and declined –
she felt it would be inappropriate to participate :(
I was bummed...I think secretly she was, too.

Mary F. Sunshine (AKA Marie)'s enthusiastic response stimulated my creative juices. And when we had a comment/reply exchange that included THIS:

I knew exactly what I needed to do.

Look at what I made!

Feel free to pin it. You know you want to.

I might need to start an Etsy shop.


  1. That Etsy shop needs to be opened. Pronto.

  2. I AM FAMOUS! CIRCLE JERKERS 4 EVA! I propose this be our anthem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8YNfvl_qhVE

  3. Suddenly I feel to old for this...

    I need you to start running again!!!

  4. See, with this one you lose me at Twitter. I know that some very smart people started Twitter, and that some very smart people use Twitter. But I personally think twitter is 140 characters of LAME.

    Fuck, it takes me at least 280 characters to warm up and set the mood. See? Like here for example I've not even started to get to my point and I'm probably a good 400 characters in.

    Anyone like the Beatles by the way? I'm listening to a Spotify playlist and Hard Day's Night just came up. Good Jam, though I like Rubber Soul forward better.

    Yeah, Twitter blows.


Say it. But if you can't own your shit, don't dump it on me.
