Talking About Sex

This is an advertorial by Durex

It's a known fact that sex sells. Check out what are the top searched words in any search engine and I assure you they're sex related. In fact, I'm sure some of my loyal readers are also reading my blog because sometimes I share tales of my sexcapades (though in a discreet manner).

As much as I'm open to conversations about things happening in my bedroom, I believe that somehow most of us just don't feel outright comfortable about discussing these topics. This is not because we are not capable of discussing these topics, but it's merely the society norms that we grew up with made us much more reserved in discussing topics related to sex.

In fact, some of us might even label those who discuss about sex as perverts. Name calling is definitely not nice, but there's nothing wrong to be curious about sex. After all, if sex is just a matter between 2 person behind closed doors, you'll never be able to find out more about what 2 person can do to each other in terms of sexual simulations and etc.

Durex myORA logo

Enter MyORA which is part website, part online community and part magazine for adults to discuss, share, inspire or to get advice on anything to do with sex anonymously. The real deal is no doubt the anonymous part, because everyone is much reserved in the country we stay in, thus we normally enjoy asking daring questions under the mask of anonymity, don't we?

You gotta check out some of the things the site discuss. I would caution you that it might not be suitable for minor, but it is seriously enlightening for adults to read. Most of the stuff shared are very direct and open and one should read it only with the objective mind of learning (after all, if it's porn you're looking for, I'm sure most of us have our favorite sites bookmarked in our browser, LOL).

Take the Sexploits, Ora Confessions page for example. Oh my, things shared there are shockingly bizarre, but not unheard of. Let me give you some example of things confessed anonymously;

- i like to push banans in my gf waxed pussy and slowly eat them on there way out,drives her nuts
- I had sex with my GF best friend in oour living room while she was sleeping over...my GF was drunk in our bed room...
- I let 2 of my friends fuck in the back of my car whilst i jerked off in the front driving at the same time..

Mind you, these are true stories shared. I'm sure there are many Malaysians who have done much daring things. It's just that, we don't share them that easy as we are afraid of how people will perceive us if we do so. Compared to the stories shared there, my 'bold' adventures seem tame. LOL.

Besides this page, there are a lot of other pages where visitors can share and ask questions to find out more things about sex. Be it proper stimulation, sex toys, what's normal and advice on how to get things started/or fixed (if you need help there, LOL).

I prefer the Inspiration page much more as it discuss more topics of the real life rather than just focusing on just sex. Of course, the topics are still rather close to sex. For example, I personally know quite a few people who get very turned on if they're held submissively. Not the SM style, full bondage, candle wax and whip. I'm just talking of tying the hands up and restrained movements. Trust me, people do get seriously stimulated when they're tied up.

I'm not gonna turn my blog into another MyORA page. So if you really wanna find out more about sex, maturely, by all means head to that page at www.myORA.com.

The best thing about the page is, it is supported by Durex, the world’s number one sex brand. A level of community management and moderation is provided on the site to ensure it excludes any abuse or bullying. However, this in no way precludes freedom of expression and open and honest discussion. The safety and anonymity of community members is the site’s utmost concern which Durex is proud to affirm.

I agree with what Durex has came forward to set straight. Durex believes in;
- In being honest and open about sex
- Talking about sex is healthy
- Porn, media, music videos and gaming have kidnapped sex
- They have distorted the our view of real sex
- Its time set the record straight, to take sex back
- Sex should be celebrated
- Sex is good
- Better sex will make you healthier
- Sex is not dirty or smutty (unless you want it to be!)

Now bear in mind that the page is not suitable for minors who aren't prepared, but it is meant for people to find out information about sex in the most objective way possible. Hence, there are no dirty pictures in that website. Heck, even if a minor accidentally stumble on MyORA, I bet it does more good than harm compared that they stumble on real porn sites which just give them graphic sex with no explanation or information on how things really work.

In conclusion, sex is good, providing it is done legally and informatively. Sex would be really bad if you put 2 virgins together who have no prior information of what to do with each other on their wedding night.

P.S. Cybersex is lame. Don't believe me? Check this out.

Muzic in your mouth

I am an avid fan of Family Guy series and also Muzic Wafer Cubes. I spend countless evenings relaxing at home, munching on the delicious wafer cubes, laughing to the random comedy from Family Guy, like the one below.



Of course, if you're new to the comedy style of Family Guy, it might take awhile for you to get used to it. *giggles*

The video above was chosen as an example because it also served as a point that I thought of sharing today with everyone. I mean, how do people invented singing or music last time? Did someone just wake up one day and knew how to sing/make music? Isn't that strange?

Of course, music and singing like everything else in the world we have today, took time and evolved from one form to another. I mean, 1 day Caveman A accidentally took 2 bones and knocked them together and created some sound while Caveman B was forging steel or something. Then they found the interaction of noises were interesting and started mixing it up with other noises. Sooner or later people agreed and it went viral from there. Wootz! I bet that was how music came about.

As time went by, more and more mainstream 'noises' were regarded as the real music and others seem to have taken some steps back. That was till people brought STOMP music (those using trash can, lids and etc) and people were all hyped up about it. Actually, there are more things around us that make sounds which would be nice to hear if there's a right sequence for it.

Take for example the sound one can make with his/her mouth. We can whistle for start. But do you also know our mouth is capable of making a lot of other noises and if those sounds were lined up properly, they can be very entertaining? Ever heard of beat boxing? If you have not, check out the TVC of Munchy's Muzic Wafer below.



The music (not the beginning of the video) were all beatboxed from talented beatboxers! Isn't that cool?

I also came across this.

They are recruiting all talented people in Malaysia to take part in a video contest in which all we need to do is make music (noises in my case) for 30 seconds and stand a chance to win fantastic prizes such as 3 iPads and 10 iPod Touch. Click the Contest tab to find out more!

The steps to participate are surprisingly simple as well;

1. Check out the MUZIC Wafer commercial http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uax6stxi0ag or download the MUZIC Wafer track here.

2. Shoot a video of you doing the MUZIC Wafer Jingle in the most creative ways imaginable in no longer than 30 seconds

3. Submit your video in the Submission Page (look for the Mimic tab) here.

I jumped off my seat and reached for the abundance of Muzic Wafer Cubes I've stored inside my pantry and whipped this up with Zuzu. Please do not laugh at my feeble attempts to beatbox create awful sounds.



I've submitted my videos and will need you guys to vote for them starting 11 August till 31 August 2010. Be sure to vote for me by logging on daily to www.munchysmuzic.com.

If you think you can make better music with Munchy's and deserve to win a brand new iPad than me, give this contest a shot. After all, taking part is free. :D

P.S. There's also an SMS Contest for Muzic lovers ongoing at the moment.

Check out http://www.munchysmuzic.com/ for more info.

Bangcock Bangcock

I iz going to Bangkok tomorrow!!!

Actually, in a few hours time. LOL.

Kinda excited cause this is my first time venturing out of the country with Zach without a guide. Woohoo~~ I hope we come back safe and sound without getting conned to buy cheap jades or jeweleries. LOL

Among the things we'll be doing are visiting the Grand Palace, the temple, go for traditional Thai massage, shopping shopping shopping, visit the gay scene in Bangkok and probably do a sex change operation on myself.

One of things I shared above is not going to take place, but I'm not sure which. Hahahahaha.

---------------------------------------------------

Zizi is kinda misbehaving. She keeps peeing and pooing at the wrong place on purpose. I have tried to educate her by both food and stick. She did got it right at 1 time and I praised her, fed her extra food, but after that, she kept doing it wrong again. I scolded her, whacked her, talked to her nicely and she doesn't seem to be improving. :(

I just hope she doesn't continue this way when my housemates take care of her during Zach and mine absence.

Any advice?

Oh, if you have any suggestions where I should visit (other than the regular Chatuchak and Siam Square or something) please do let me know yea? XD

Excited about Bangkok

The Return of the Sarcastic Designer

Remember the joke I shared a few days ago? I got more of it. :D

This is an email that David wrote to a school volunteer who kinda went a bit out of the line to 'preach' about religion. The volunteer, Darryl gave his kid a letter which was as follows;

Dear Darryl,

I have received your permission slip featuring what I can only assume is a levitating rabbit about to drop an egg on Jesus.
Thank you for pre-ticking the permission box as this has saved me not only from having to make a choice, but also from having to make my own forty five degree downward stroke followed by a twenty percent longer forty five degree upward stroke. Without your guidance, I may have drawn a picture of a cactus wearing a hat by mistake.

As I trust my offspring's ability to separate fact from fantasy, I am happy for him to participate in your indoctrination process on the proviso that all references to 'Jesus' are replaced with the term 'Purportedly Magic Jew.'

Regards,
David.

Hello David

The tick in the box already was a mistake I noticed after printing them all. I've seen the play and it's not indoctrinating anyone. It's a fun play performed by a great bunch of kids. You do not have to be religious to enjoy it. You are welcome to attend if you have any concerns.

Dear Darryl,

Thank you for the kind offer, being unable to think of anything more exciting than attending your entertaining and fun filled afternoon, I tried harder and thought of about four hundred things.

I was actually in a Bible based play once and played the role of 'Annoyed about having to do this.' My scene involved offering a potplant, as nobody knew what Myrrh was, to a plastic baby Jesus then standing between 'I forgot my costume so am wearing the teachers poncho' and 'I don't feel very well'. Highlights of the play included a nervous donkey with diarrhoea causing 'I don't feel very well' to vomit onto the back of Mary's head, and the lighting system, designed to provide a halo effect around the manger, overheating and setting it alight. The teacher, later criticised for dousing an electrical fire with a bucket of water and endangering the lives of children, left the building in tears and the audience in silence. We only saw her again briefly when she came to the school to collect her poncho.

Also, your inference that I am without religion is incorrect and I am actually torn between two faiths; while your god's promise of eternal life is very persuasive, the Papua New Guinean mud god, Pikkiwoki, is promising a pig and as many coconuts as you can carry.

Regards,
David.

While it would be a pity for Seb to miss out on the important message of hope that the story of the resurrection gives, if you don't want him to attend the presentation on Monday then just tick the box that says I do not give my child permission to attend.

Dear Darryl,

I understand the importance the resurrection story holds in your particular religion. If I too knew some guy that had been killed and placed inside a cave with a rock in front of it and I visited the cave to find the rock moved and his body gone, the only logical assumption would be that he had risen from the dead and is the son of God. Once, my friend Simon was rushed to hospital to have his appendix removed and I visited him the next day to find his bed empty. I immediately sacrificed a goat and burnt a witch in his name but it turned out that he had not had appendicitis, just needed a good poo, and was at home playing Playstation.
Someone probably should have asked "So the rock has been moved and he's gone... has anyone checked his house?" I realise Playstation was not around in those days but they probably had the equivalent. A muddy stick or something. I would have said "Can someone please check if Jesus is at home playing with his muddy stick, if not, then and only then should we all assume, logically, that he has risen from the dead and is the son of God."

If we accept though, that Jesus was the son of an Infinite Being capable of anything, he probably did have a Playstation. Probably a Playstation 7. I know I have to get my offspring all the latest gadgets. God would probably have said to him, "I was going to wait another two thousand years to give you this but seeing as you have been good... just don't tell your mother about Grand Theft Auto."
Also, is it true that Jesus can be stabbed during a sword fight and be ok due to the fact that he can only die if he gets his head chopped off?

David.

Nowhere in the Bible does Jesus have a sword fight. Learning the teachings of the Bible is not just about religion. It teaches a set of ethics that are sadly not taught by parents nowadays.

Dear Darryl,

You raise a valid point and I appreciate you pointing out my failings as a parent. Practising a system of ethics based on the promise of a reward, in your case an afterlife, is certainly preferable to practising a system of ethics based on it simply being the right thing to do.

Many years ago, I lived next door to a Christian named Mr Stevens. You could tell he was a Christian because he had a fish sticker on his Datsun. He used to wave at us kids from his bathroom window on hot summer days as we played in the sprinkler. I learnt a lot from Mr Stevens. Mainly about wrestling holds. The trick is to oil up really well making it hard for the other person to hold you down. I would often lie on his living room rug looking up at the pictures of sunsets behind quotes from Psalms while waiting for him to unwrap his legs from around my torso.

Your job would be made much easier if, after making the school children sit through an hour of church youth group teens dancing, singing and re-enacting Jewish magic tricks, you simply told them that it was just a small taste of what hell is like and if they didn't believe in Jesus they would have to sit through it again.

When I was at school, we were forced to attend a similar presentation. Herded into the gym under the pretence of free chips, we were assaulted with an hour of hippies playing guitars and a dance routine featuring some kind of colourful coat and a lot of looking upwards. Due to the air-conditioning in the packed gym not working and it being a hot day, the hippie wearing the colourful coat blacked out mid performance and struck his head against the front edge of the stage spraying the first row of cross-legged children with blood. Unconscious, he also urinated. There was a bit of screaming and an ambulance involved and everyone agreed it was the best play they had ever seen.

David.

Hello David

I don't see what any of that has to do with this play. It's important for children to have balance in their life and spirituality is as important in a childs life as everything else. There's an old saying that life without religion is life without beauty.

Dear Darryl,

I agree completely that balance is an important component of a child's education. I will assume then that you will also be organising a class excursion to a play depicting the fifteen billion year expansion of the universe from its initial particle soup moments following the big bang through to molecule coalescion, galaxy and planetary formation and eventually life?

Perhaps your church youth group could put together an interpretive dance routine representing the behaviour of Saturn's moon Hyperion, shattered by an ancient collision and falling randomly back together, tugged to and fro by the gravitational pull of Titan, sixteen sister moons, the multi-billionfold moonlets of Saturn’s rings, Saturn’s gravitational field, companion planets, the variability’s of Sol, stars, galaxy, neighbouring galaxies... or possibly not, according to an old saying, there is no beauty in this.

Also, while I understand that the play is to be held outside school grounds, due to the fact that it is illegal to present medieval metaphysic propaganda in public schools, it is also my understanding that you are now required by law, as of last year, to go by the title Christian Volunteer rather than School Chaplain. A memo you may have missed or filed in your overflowing 'facts that cease to exist when they are ignored' tray.

David.

Man, last night's match was crazy!! Though it was only the 3rd and 4th placing play off, both Uruguay and Germany played their very best to ensure everyone in the world know how good they are. Kudos to the teams!

As shared yesterday, today is the last day for you peeps to win RM10,000 by getting yourself Celcom Blue Bears. Go grab yours today by buying a Blackberry from your nearest Blue Cube outlet!!

In addition to that, if you join Xpax by end of this month, you get 90 minutes of free talktime!


All you have to do is just stay active for the next 3 months and reload RM30 each month! No other prepaid plans give you as much bonus as Xpax. That's why their tagline is "Got X, Got it All".

P.S. I hope I can be as sarcastic as this David Thorne in my job and life. Unfortunately, I lack the patience to do so. However, I think my colleague, Firdauz does have what it takes to annoy the shit out of people if he tries. LOL.

Introducing Zizi

Oh haiz!!

IMG_1787

Yes, I iz back and iz fatter. (wuwuwuwuwu T_______________T)

Drop the fact that I'm now fatter. I'd like to introduce you to my daughter, Zizi!!!

IMG_1863

I actually got Zizi about 2 weeks ago but I didn't had the time to blog about it. For those who follow me on Twitter should have known the newest addition to my family. :D

Zizi is a mini Terrier (at least according to the pet shop owner who I think kinda conned me into buying her, LOL) and she's 6 months old. She is extremely manja and also friendly to everyone.

The main reason why I got Zizi is to be Zuzu's companion. Zuzu had been quite depressed previously. We kinda noticed that he was always moody (lie down on the floor, showed no interest to us despite me and Zach being at home) and we thought he's really bored and need a companion. Initially when we brought Zizi home, Zuzu was kinda unhappy as well.

Zizi, was happily going around trying to know Zuzu but Zuzu just run all over the house, avoiding Zizi. Wherever Zizi goes, Zuzu will run away from her and he continued to be moody. We got worried at first. Then, 2 days later, somehow Zuzu started to realize that Zizi is a girl (found her pussy, I think).

And ever since then, Zuzu has been humping Zizi non stop like every day. The first few times that Zuzu and Zizi started mating, Zuzu's dick was stuck in Zizi's pussy and Zizi was crying like mad la. I was damn worried and tried to unstuck them but they were locked tight! Apparently dog's dick is able to attach itself automatically to the female's pussy to ensure the ejaculation process happens inside so they can breed successfully (thank god human can control, else wise Earth will be overpopulated).

So, I had to calm Zuzu down to ensure he's no longer 'excited' so his penis would go softer before his dick can slip out. After that first incident, Zuzu and Zizi got stuck in the same position for like 5 times within 2 days. *palm on forehead* Eventually, Zizi wasn't crying anymore when that happened (looks like she learned to enjoy it? LOL).

Today, Zuzu and Zizi are getting along very well and Zuzu is no longer moody. I'm so happy to see my son and daughter running around happily in the house. I am sure glad that Zuzu is no longer alone at home when me and Zach are out working or in the gym or something. :D

-------------------------------------------------

The World Cup is ending really soon. Tonight's the 3rd and 4th place match where Germany will meet Uruguay while tomorrow will be the final match! I am definitely feeling the heat all over the world, even the mamak stall downstairs is filled up with people waiting for the match to start at 2AM later.

This also mean that today and tomorrow is the last day you stand to win RM10,000 cash prize from Celcom or Xpax!! *gasps*

Check out the lucky winners for Week 6! Congrats to them! Woohoo lucky peeps.

xpax winners

If you want your name to be on the website telling you that you're 10 grand richer, all you gotta do is just;

1. Send an SMS to 22188 with BOLA
2. Reload RM30 or more to your Xpax number

Then you'll get an SMS which you can redeem for a Celcom Blue Bear and stand a chance to be selected for the RM10,000 bucks prize!

Yes, it's that simple!

And you can only do this for 2 more days, so don't let this slip!!

------------------------------------------

P.S. If Zuzu and Zizi have puppies, I'll name them Zuzi and Zizu. Any extras will be called Zuzizu, Zizuzi, Zuzizuzi, Zizuzizu and follows. LOL. If that happens, I'll ask if any of you guys want to have cute puppies, yea? ;)

New Magic the Gathering Set - M11

With the new expansion releasing next weekend (pre release this weekend), I can't help but to get excited over some new cards that have shown up in various spoilers over the Internet. As I'm a control player, I shall begin to discuss cards that I'm happy to see to be in my color and I foresee will be in my tuned up decks (I'm running UW control and Grixis control decks currently) for the Malaysian Nationals Qualifier.

First off, Sun Titan.


While this might not be an auto include in my deck, but it certainly has potential to be. A 6 mana for 6/6 body that can return permanents (fetchlands, Tectonic Edge, manlands, Sea Gate Oracle, Wall of Omens) is definitely good to have. The best deal of all, it's a Pre Release card, which means I've already got 4 since I signed up for 4 sessions. Lucky for that, else wise the price will be quite crazy since it is a Mythic rare after all.

Next Titan, the Black one.


The horror! 6 mana for total of 10 power toughness is just amazingly crazy!! It vows to be a finisher in any control decks or mid range decks. I will want 4 of him as fast as I could (though I don't think I'll run 4 maindeck).

Then, we have a nice Sphinx at 4 mana cost.


4 mana for 4/4 flying has always been demanded by Blue players. We had Tower Gargoyle but it required intensive splash into White and Black. So, a pure blue 4 mana 4/4 flier is just great! It even comes with an ability to help you off with drawing a card from your library if you name it right. With Halimar Depths, Jace, the Mind Sculptor and Scry mechanics in the format, this will not be that hard to achieve actually. I want 4 copies of this guy and I do see I'll play 4 of them mainboard in certain decks. :D

They are bringing Leylines cycle into M11 and the new one for Blue is flashy.


Of course, when you run Leylines you want to have them in your starting hand so you get to cast it for free so that is why most people will run the play set of 4. But then again, when one is on board and you draw another one, sometimes you do feel stupid. LOL. Flash is a very strong ability to traditional Blue players that run counterspells because that allows Blue players to play permanents at the end of opponent's turns to optimize mana and game play. However, at this time, the amount of effective counterspells are somewhat low, but I do foresee that this will be a sleeper. I personally would like to have 4 of these as fast as I can get them. :)

Oh, they did brought back Mana Leak in M11, which is good news for Blue players like me.

Blue was also given a Power 9 card reincarnated at higher mana cost - Time Reversal.


This card is already hitting RM80 per piece in online shops for Pre-Sale, but somehow many are skeptical on its usefulness. As much as I'm a fan of Blue Magic, I do not see myself getting excited nor willing to pay RM80 for a Time Reversal. I might be wrong though. I do know that this will go hand in hand with Time Warp for Turboland decks.

I think that's all for the cards I really want to get. But I do wish to share some other exciting cards in colors that I usually won't play. Let's start with Green with their Titan.


It looks damn powerful for what it is capable of doing. Bringing in 2 lands (including non basic land, which means - Manlands) at 6 mana when it comes into play or attacks is just pretty insane. The plus point, he has trample. His potential to be abused is pretty high thus somehow his price tag at the moment is the highest among all Mythic Titans.

Then we have a fatty that is almost immune to removals and countermagic.


The downside is he cost 7 mana which makes him a late bloomer (compensated by Haste, can't be countered,protection from non green spells/abilities and 8/5 body though). The sad fact is he doesn't have trample (relief for control players like me) which means he can't be chump blocked forever by Sprouting Thrinax and Awakening Zone tokens. But still, a deadly force to Control players. *insert sad face*

Red has not been very exciting so far if you ask me. The only good card that will see play in tournaments will be this baby.


It's technically a Baneslayer killer since Red is kinda staring at death the moment Baneslayer hits board on the other side usually. It also helps against Wall of Omens, Sphinxes (not Jwar Isle though) and other assorted Blue/White creatures which promise to create havoc for Red players.

The spoiler has names of Planeswalkers that we are familiar of such as Jace, Liliana, Garruk, Ajani and Chandra. However, only Garruk Wildspeaker and Ajani Goldmane has been confirmed so far (reprint from their Lorwyn forms) which gave rise to speculations that Wizards (company that makes Magic cards) are trying to put in Jace, the Mind Sculptor in the set (this card cost RM250 per piece at the moment) to make the set a money set, or there might be a new Liliana.

We can only continue making speculations but we'll all be sure this coming weekend at the Pre Release.

Till then, I'm waiting with excitement for this coming Saturday and Sunday to get my hands on new cards. Woohoo~

---------------------------------------------------
Mini advertorial

As usual, World Cup is just crazy these days. I watched the game where Brazil lost to Holland (sad, cause I'm personally a fan of Brazil) and it was great! Yeah, Brazil made some mistake that caused them the game. The own goal plummet their morale down the drain (some people claimed they were paid to lose) but I do think the game was very entertaining.

Then yesterday, the game between Germany and Argentina was equally fantastic. The Germans showed the Argentinians the definition of Wall of Berlin in their defense formation. Well, you have to admit the South Americans were kinda dwarfed by the Germans physiques. Most of them were taller than the Argentinians by at least half a head. LOL.

To make things worse, I think Argentinians were pretty rough in their gameplay tackles and moves. They seemed like they wanted to cause a lot of hurt to the German players. Thankfully, no one got injured real bad. Oh I think the Argentinian players should get offers to act in movies too. Most of the time they were acting to get the Germans sent off the field. LOL.

At this point of time, I think the team I support to win the World Cup would be Germany, judging from their last performance. Go go Germany!! RAWRR!!

While all the hype from World Cup is ongoing, so is Celcom's promotion to give out RM10,000 cash daily to its users! Don't believe me? Check out their official website at www.celcom.com.my/vs to find out more.

Well, the gist is, get a Blue Bear and you stand a chance to win the RM10k actually. :P

Incidentally, there are Bear Carnivals sweeping across the nation to celebrate World Cup and Celcom's promotion. There are loads of prizes to be given away along with fun games to entertain yourself be it if you're with your friends or family members. You can also catch the Blue Bear performances where you'll definitely be entertained. :D


I also heard that occasionally they give out crazy deals for phones and packages too. For those of you staying at Subang, you're in luck because the next Bear Carnival will be on 11 July at Subang Jaya, beside Empire Gallery/Subang Parade. Be sure you don't miss it!

For more information about the carnival check out here.

Designer's Joke

I just came across one of the funniest not sex related joke thanks to David Wong.

Am stealing it and posting it here. XD

--------------------------------------------------------

Hi

I opened the screen door yesterday and my cat got out and has been missing since then so I was wondering if you are not to busy you could make a poster for me. It has to be A4 and I will photocopy it and put it around my suburb this afternoon.

This is the only photo of her I have she answers to the name Missy and is black and white and about 8 months old. missing on Harper street and my phone number.
Thanks Shan.

Dear Shannon,
That is shocking news. Luckily I was sitting down when I read your email and not half way up a ladder or tree. How are you holding up? I am surprised you managed to attend work at all what with thinking about Missy out there cold, frightened and alone... possibly lying on the side of the road, her back legs squashed by a vehicle, calling out "Shannon, where are you?"
Although I have two clients expecting completed work this afternoon, I will, of course, drop everything and do whatever it takes to facilitate the speedy return of Missy.
Regards, David .

Dear Shannon,
I never said I don't like cats. Once, having been invited to a party, I went clothes shopping beforehand and bought a pair of expensive G-Star boots. They were two sizes too small but I wanted them so badly I figured I could just wear them without socks and cut my toenails very short. As the party was only a few blocks from my place, I decided to walk. After the first block, I lost all feeling in my feet. Arriving at the party, I stumbled into a guy named Steven, spilling Malibu & coke onto his white Wham 'Choose Life' t-shirt, and he punched me. An hour or so after the incident, Steven sat down in a chair already occupied by a cat. The surprised cat clawed and snarled causing Steven to leap out of the chair, slip on a rug and strike his forehead onto the corner of a speaker; resulting in a two inch open gash. In its shock, the cat also defecated, leaving Steven with a foul stain down the back of his beige cargo pants. I liked that cat.
Attached poster as requested.
Regards, David .

Dear Shannon,
It's a design thing. The cat is lost in the negative space.

Thats just stupid. Can you do it properly please? I am extremely emotional over this and was up all night in tears. you seem to think it is funny. Can you make the photo bigger please and fix the text and do it in colour please. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,
Having worked with designers for a few years now, I would have assumed you understood, despite our vague suggestions otherwise, we do not welcome constructive criticism. I don't come downstairs and tell you how to send text messages, log onto Facebook and look out of the window. I am willing to overlook this faux pas due to you no doubt being preoccupied with thoughts of Missy attempting to make her way home across busy intersections or being trapped in a drain as it slowly fills with water. I spent three days down a well once but that was just for fun.
I have amended and attached the poster as per your instructions.
Regards, David .

yeah can you do the poster or not? I just want a photo and the word lost and the telephone number and when and where she was lost and her name. Not like a movie poster or anything stupid. I have to leave early today. If it was your cat I would help you. Thanks.

Dear Shannon,
I don't have a cat. I once agreed to look after a friend's cat for a week but after he dropped it off at my apartment and explained the concept of kitty litter, I kept the cat in a closed cardboard box in the shed and forgot about it. If I wanted to feed something and clean faeces, I wouldn't have put my mother in that home after her stroke. A week later, when my friend came to collect his cat, I pretended that I was not home and mailed the box to him. Apparently I failed to put enough stamps on the package and he had to collect it from the post office and pay eighteen dollars. He still goes on about that sometimes, people need to learn to let go.
I have attached the amended version of your poster as per your detailed instructions.
Regards, David .

I know, but that one is cute. As Missy has quite possibly met any one of several violent ends, it is possible you might get a better cat out of this. If anybody calls and says "I haven't seen your orange cat but I did find a black and white one with its hind legs run over by a car, do you want it?" you can politely decline and save yourself a costly veterinarian bill.

I knew someone who had a basset hound that had its hind legs removed after an accident and it had to walk around with one of those little buggies with wheels. If it had been my dog I would have asked for all its legs to be removed and replaced with wheels and had a remote control installed. I could charge neighbourhood kids for rides and enter it in races. If I did the same with a horse I could drive it to work. I would call it Steven.

Regards, David .
