smoke on the water, that's why.

We all came out to montreux
On the lake geneva shoreline
To make records with a mobile
We didnt have much time
Frank zappa and the mothers
Were at the best place around
But some stupid with a flare gun
Burned the place to the ground
Smoke on the water, fire in the sky..........

Gosh... Well, I think I've done enough traveling and living abroad to satisfy me for quite a long time. I'll do more if I get the chance but it's not a big "need." Actually I can't say there's really anything I NEED. I'm pretty content. But things I'd like to do...

1) Get a book published.
2) Learn to read, write, and speak Chinese.
3) Get several books published.
4) Love my husband more. Forever.
5) Do more to REALLY HELP people in need.

I guess that's it, really. I'm easy to please. "Have some babies" might appear on the list sometime in the future, but not right now.

Because it only takes one man to satisfy a woman? And it takes 2 women to do the same for a man?

1. Become a famous, rich and respected novelist
2. Visit (and possibly live in for a while) Japan
3. Tour safe, trendy, beautiful locales in South America and kiss some pretty local ladies...
4. Repeat step 3 in all other inhabited continents...
5. Make a movie or two, or at least write one, or at least cameo in one
6. Learn to play guitar or piano (or both) well enough to release a subpar, self-indulgent jazz/rock/soul/rap fusion album that still sells decent numbers because I'm already famous / popular, but years later it gets justifiably panned on VH1's new special "Worst Records of the 21st Century."
7. Fall in love & make some babies.
8. Save somebody's life.

The circle you run with doesn't contain enough bad girls?

Throughout the course of my adult life, I would say a definite NO to not enough 'bad' girls. I have tended to be acquainted with interesting, adventurous women and I've never heard them say that.

Have you ever heard a woman say that?

I'm not being snarky here. I think it's intriguing that 2 women is a common male fantasy but 2 men isn't a common fantasy for women.

Well, I was being playfully snarky, but yeah, I've heard it a couple of times. Even been propositioned. But that just doesn't come close to tickling any fancy I've ever had, so yeah... no thanks on that one.

But I would submit that it is definitely more of a guy fantasy (2 girls) than a woman fantasy (2 dudes). I'd go into details of exactly why but I don't want to risk scarring any kids that might stumble upon the thread.

Well I have, from my own wife no less, who would kill me if she knew I admitted it here.

I don't think it's that unusual to desire more than one partner at once, whether you're married or not. But it's difficult to make it happen so that the couple is equally satisfied. If they're not, regret has a way of eating through a relationship until it's finished for good.

I think I'll start a poll that states:

All ye who want to have sex with someone other than your partner, while they're present, whether they want to join in or not, please come forward and vote.

I always wondered what was the point of two girls and one man. How do you decide which girl doesn't get the prize at the end? Once the bloke has *ahem* done his thing, what do you do? Watch telly? Without the *point*, what's the point?

With two blokes, I could break the first one and go straight onto the second. No downtime!

And I know I'm far from alone with this. Just a shame I never got the chance before I married.

Cheerleading dance - pathetic!

And if you don't have imagination (no offense, please) wide enough - try reading some Krantz, Collins or Auel, just to mention a few... - enlightened writers.

Not to mention Sheldon, or even Huxley.

LOL! Here's my theory about why it's not more popular (spoken about or not) - Women are better at sharing their toys, that's obvious from watching preschoolers. So two women can handle one man. But hetero men just wouldn't be into sharing one woman and women know this so.....
it remains a fantasy not spoken about much or seriously considered.

That said, my top ten list:

1. Be published. Just once.
2. Be published.
3. Be published.
4. Be published.
5. Be published.
6. Travel the world more.
7. Own a place in warm climate so that I don't have to endure the hideousness of 5 long winter months of hell (I have decided that hell is indeed cold, not hot, esp. after reading about Stalingrad)
8. Meet Carol Burnett (this woman's show saved my sanity growing up - love her)
9. Own another horse.
10. Become fluent in another language.

Well considering I should have been dead before puberty, the last 19 years have been gravy for me. Besides, not to be boring but I've done pretty much everything I ever wanted to do and was told I couldn't. My terribly opinionated self has this advice for everyone- Live and love with no regrets because you never know when your time is going to be up. Then again what do I know? I can't seem to take death like a man. Maybe that's because I'm a woman.:tongue

Er, yes, I know. I was trying to subtly say that that does less than nothing for me. No really, ewwwww. Not, I would like to add for the record after those reps, because I am stupendously ignorant. The clue is almost certainly contained within the complexities of my sig :)

Heck, given the opportunity, he might even surprise them with three or four prizes...each. :)

What about a mfmf foursome?

These are important questions, you see.

Wow. Maybe you should ask on the Erotica board.

Isn't that what round two is for? You don't think a man would squander his good fortune by not satisfying both women, right?

Heck, given the opportunity, he might even surprise them with three or four prizes...each. :)


I think this is one of those things that might sound fun in theory, but not so fun in reality.

I'm guessing here, honest! LOL

I'd like to talk to my dad. Because I don't know. Maybe there's another side, and I will go if there is, and I'd like to think so. But maybe there isn't. My dream trip would be to go where I could talk to my father again.

I've only seen one guy ever hunt smurfs.

His experiences don't make it seem like a fruitful exercise...
has anyone seen this guy?
I'm sure he has a list of 10 things he'd like to do too:)

1. Travel the world (or as much of it as I can manage), living nowhere and everywhere simultaneously.
2. Study with Buddhist monks in some Indo-Asian mountains and be able to call myself a Buddhist in the fullest sense of the term, according to my own defintion.
3. Either have the courage to realize my potential as a member of society, or have the courage to cut myself off from society.
4. Find some sort of romantic love.
5. Be completely validated as a writer. (Note: Not sure what this entails just yet.)
6. Change the world (in a positive way), despite my motto of "I don't want to change the world, I just want to change my world."
7. Spend some length of time working on and/or operating an organic farm in some part of the world.
8. Fully understand the meaning of my life. Which, I might add, is entirely different from understanding "the meaning of life".
9. Learn to snowboard without wiping out and landing on my head.
10. Learn as many languages as I can.

Top ten things I want to do to my family before I move.

1.) When my brother's in the shower, I'll throw a bucket of ice on him.
2.) When my mom watches T.V, I'm grabbing the remote and hide, pressing the off button every five minutes, maybe even change the channel
3.) When someone takes a shower, flush the toilet(I wanna see what would happen.)
4.)Change every clock in the house, and set the alarm to 6:00AM, when it's really 3:00AM
5.) Finishing the rest of this post. :D

:tongue you guys... two girls, no problem -- but three, well... good luck! anything else is possible, doable and can come in good time: being published, seeing a loved one through, traveling the world, throwing a bucket of ice on a nekkid bum, being published, rich and successful, romantic love, TWO gals...

i still want a few, simple things:

1. Time
2. Space
3. Truth
4. Understand it all. all of IT -- good, bad or indifferent.

...i had Faith in there at number 3, but realized i couldn't really define this wish... Faith requires a qualifier: Faith in WHAT -- '...' ?

I don't think it's that unusual to desire more than one partner at once, whether you're married or not. But it's difficult to make it happen so that the couple is equally satisfied. If they're not, regret has a way of eating through a relationship until it's finished for good.If not for jealousy, there would be a lot more satisfied customers in the sexual arena.
I think most people are afraid once they act on their fantasies they'll be let down and their dream will be ruined. It's like our WIPs; does anyone ever feel like they're subconsciously delaying finishing that first draft because once it's all down on paper, it's over?
