A Strange Saturday Evening

Hello everyone!  How is your weekend going?  Mine is ok, I have been sort of laying around all day.  I planned to exercise today but I've been so behind on sleep that I let myself just sleep all morning.  This afternoon I cleaned my kitchen.  It took forever, I hadn't cleaned since I got home and J let it get to be a mess and it's kind of built and built till it was a little ridiculous.  Everything is good now though :)  After the kitchen was clean I spent the rest of the afternoon watching TV.  J went to see family so it was definitely a perfect chance to veg out.

Dinner was my shrimp pasta minus the shrimp.  I took the tomatoes and cream and put on top of pasta.  It was really good and quick.  After dinner I really wanted something sweet, but there isn't anything like that in the apartment at the moment.  Until I remembered the heavy cream I used for dinner... and had a fabulous thought...

Do you see where this is going?

Yummy :)

Homemade whipped cream and blackberries.  I can be very creative when I want something!

I'm watching something odd at the moment on TV and I feel compelled to share.. you know how you are channel surfing and you end up watching something you would never plan to watch?  Well, that's what happened tonight when I came across this show on polyamory.  (No clue if that's spelled right.)  Basically, the show is following a woman who has two boyfriends, and they all live together.  Her and one of the men have a baby together, and the father of the baby also dates other women.  The other guy seems happy to just be with her and help with the baby.  It's definitely interesting.  They all appear to be completely happy with this arrangement and everyone is the best of friends, and I don't really know what to think.  On the one hand, I think it's totally bizarre and absolutely not for me.  I see her come in from a walk with one man and give the other man a kiss, and then he turns around and introduces her to his date.  I'm not really a jealous person, but I would definitely NOT be ok with my man introducing me to his date.  Not even if I had just come in from a walk with my OTHER man.  On the other hand, if they are all truly ok with this relationship and are happy like this, then to each their own.  It's none of my business.  If nothing else it makes for some really interesting TV watching.  On a purely feminist note, (another thing I definitely usually am not,) I am thoroughly enjoying that this is a woman who has multiple men.  Whenever you hear of this kind of thing it's usually a man with multiple women.  It's nice to see the tables be turned!

Tese guys seem either really confident with themselves, or really busy, and happy that there's another guy seeing to her needs, or totally nutless.

Whenever people bitch about fundamentalist Mormons' polygamy, I always say that I don't have a problem with it as long as it goes both ways. It rarely does, so I like to hear about these arrangements every once in a while.

I know a few polys. I believe it can work with the right people, but I think a lot of people tend to force it so they can look hip and 21st century. They tend to proselytize about their lifestyles, and in my experience the more one feels the need to explain something the less legitimate it seems to be on its own.

Ok, embarrassing confession...

to make whipped cream, do you really just whip cream? Because it looks easy.. and delicious.. and I never knew that's all it took.

I told you, embarrassing, right?!
