The eye (updated)

I love lazy Sunday mornings. Yesterday morning was, for reasons unknown, very quiet, and I fancied my chances…

I arch an eyebrow, Bond-style (yes, in my mind), and give Linzi a look that says I Am Mentally Undressing You, Be Aroused.

No joy. She’s engrossed in her novel. I’m obviously being too subtle. Better make my intentions clear.

“Jaysis, I’ve an awful serious horn for you.”

Cue the rolling eyes; it’s all in the eyes.

“Kav…we had sex last night, how could you be so horny this morning?”

I am flabbergasted. Sometimes I wonder if she knows me at all.

“Wha? That doesn’t make any sense. You wouldn’t say ‘Oh, I’m not hungry this morning, I ate yesterday’, or ‘I’m not tired this evening, I slept last night’, would you? No, you wouldn’t.”

“Stop answering your own questions, I hate that.”

I know exactly how to push her buttons.

“Would I stop answering my own questions? No, I wouldn’t.”

“Jesus Christ, you really know how to get a girl in the mood, Kav.”

The monitor crackles to life.

“Waaah, waah, waaah. Waaaaaaaaah.”

Oh yeah, that’s right. We have kids. I was thinking it was a bit quiet around here this morning.


On a serious note, I’m attempting to use this software to back up my blog. If you give even a small crap about your blog, it might be worth backing it up. It’s FREE!

I’ll let you know how I get on – if all goes well, I’ll recommend it.

UPDATE: That software’s pretty damn easy to use. It’s highly configurable, but if all you want’s a straight copy of your blog copied to a local folder, it’s ideal. I’d recommend it, but only if you have a decent connection. Dial-up users will be clawing their eyes out. It took me about 20 minutes on a 1Mb broadband connection to back up all my blogs. Worth it for the peace of mind.

  1. You’re an awful divil, Kav. You’re a CUTE HOOR!

    There’s a reason I stopped at one sprog, yes there is. Still, I suppose having two is very handy for the nursing home bills and stuff in later years.

  2. LOL – you really know how to woo a gal don’t you?? 😉

  3. You smooth dog. At least you have a daily allowance and not monthly.

    When I try that eyebrow thing I always look incredulous, as though I’m casting doubt. A more subtle approach is to simply retire to the bedroom and bawl “wah wah wah” until you get what you want.

  4. When you said, “arch an eyebrow” I imagined you in the back room of the Vietnamese nail shop getting a professional eyebrow wax job done so that Linzi would automatically KNOW when you’re mentally undressing her based on your new and improved efforts at grooming. A little girlie, I thought, but then they’re Irish so the standards must be different and who am I to judge?

    How about “hands on” arousal next time – much more difficult to resist.

    Good luck romantic horney guy!

  5. This novel reading is not to be recommended, no good will come of it, and the horn will wither from lack of use. Since you got the ride did you get the breakfast in bed yet for your nursing-the-sick services?

  6. I’m giggling imagining you arching your eyebrow. You make me laugh. And that says a lot.

    Let me know how the blog back-up works!

  7. Oh you poor thing. You even arched your eyebrow in the name of being smooth. I’m sorry it didn’t work.

  8. :::swoon:::

    :::le sigh:::

    sooooooo smooth….I dont understand why she didnt jump ya right there !!

  9. Sweary: I’m anything but I’m the most transparent goballoon you’re ever likely to meet. Linzi can spot my advances a mile off.

    purplestew: Tis all in good fun. No harm in chancing your arm now and then. Inside I knew I was destined to fail.

    kieran: I get a jitter in my eyebrow when I arch it – it quivers uncontrollably, like a sleeping dog dreaming of chasing a herd of Spaniards.

    jali: My knowledge of grooming extends to getting a haircut once a month and having a shower most days, so you’ve lost me on that one. We’ll see sure. I’ll probably only ever blog about sex from a comical viewpoint, so it’s unlikely you’ll ever see me write about that stuff.

    conan: Hah, I had forgotten about that. No, twas just a garden-variety one. She works hard enough, I wouldn’t do that to her*.

    fyrchk: Mission accomplished. Glad someone liked it, cos if my site meter’s anything to go by today, this post is making most people click away in disgust. Heh.

    sassy: Don’t worry, I’ll survive. The eyebrow thing is a sure-fire way to fail – unlike Sean Connery, I look like a bit of a spazzy when I attempt it.

    *translation: I’d get my arse kicked up and down the stairs if I brought breakfast in bed up.

  10. drm: Well, the novel is really good…

  11. Jebus, you are one smooth talker. From here on you shall be known as ‘ol silver tongue. Baahahah! No wonder you aint gettin any.
    Wash the dishes. I hear that makes married women horny.

  12. And now you see why the Spouse Sparrow has a go while I’m asleep.

    At least your kids are in their own rooms. The Nestling Sparrow’s in with us. That means any sex attempted is most emphatically NOT with me on top, dammit.

  13. My eyebrows are permanently arched as a result of being such a pissed off and cynical child. These days I’ve got so much sex I can’t get rid of the stuff!!

  14. “All” your blog”s”? Are you telling me there’s more than one?! You’re holding out on me, dude.

  15. plimco: Perhaps, one day, I will reveal them…

  16. You’re a super hero, aren’t you. I knew it! You totally have a secret identity.

    It all makes sense now…

  17. Yeah, my superpower is blogging badly.

  18. That was so depressing, my blog took precisely 1 minute to download. One minute for three feckin years?!
