Greek priest gives us sex advise

From a Greek newspaper: “The wife does not have the right to say ‘no’ to sex if her husband is asking for it — except if she has… fever.” Hahaha… Good one.

Good Looks and String Theory

What a good looking guy. I saw him on Science Channel last night on a documentary about Einstein. When I first saw him on TV I thought: “what the hell, do they put teenagers now talking about Quantum Mechanics?”. A quick search on him online though revealed that Dr Brian Cox is a physicist at the University of Manchester and he is working at CERN currently, at the ATLAS project which tries –among other things– to prove the String Theory. However, he did look to me no much older than mid-twenties or so. So, I decided to email him and… ask for his age (and I provided mine too, just so I am a bit more fair in my abrupt request).

Brian was very kind to reply to my email and tell me his real age (which I won’t reveal, as I didn’t get permission to do so). Well, after having his answer, I can only say the following, in my conspiracy theory mode: CERN has already found the Equation of Everything, they control space and time and that’s why Brian doesn’t have to look a day older than 25 or so. Either that, or all Brians are bound to look younger than they actually are, just like Bryan Singer does too. 😉

Madonna’s quote represents me

Madonna once said: “I’m a gay man trapped in a woman’s body!”. I personally feel that way too. I am a straight female but I act and think like a man.

Getting an RV

We went with JBQ yesterday at an RV show in Alameda County. We saw quite a few models, big and small, but we both agreed that the best value for the money, is the non-slider 24 footer Winnebago (interior pics, floorplan). It can sit/sleep 4 people and in theory it can transport 7. It has a full bathroom with a shower, two double beds, full kitchen functionality and can transport 160 litres or water. I loved it. It felt so romantic and cool.

Thing is though, it doesn’t make sense to get one. It costs over $60,000, it has high insurance ($200 a month), and each time you drive it, it consumes 3x the gas, plus you have to pay about $40 a night to the camping grounds. Overall, it is a very expensive luxury. Having the money to buy it is not enough to justify this thing.
