Where have all the good men gone, and where are all the gods?

I would like to officially apologise for misdirecting my drunken man bashing rant the other night. All men of legal drinking age are NOT responsible for the sins of lesser men in this world.

That said... there is still a ridiculous number of complete arseholes out there in the world, and I seem to be an arsehole magnet. I think I need to get myself de-magnetised so all the bastard men slide right off. :o)

"I need a hero.
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the end of the night.
He's gotta be strong,
And he's gotta be fast,
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight.
I need a hero.
I'm holding out for a hero 'til the morning light.
He's gotta be sure,
And it's gotta be soon,
And he's gotta be larger than life."
(Holding out for a hero, Bonnie Tyler)

I hate to tell you this, but I may have married the very last good man nine years ago. Sorry. :-/

Michele sent me tonight!

Yaeli, I used to be a bastard magnet too. But about the time I was 24, that all changed, so there's hope for you yet.

Best of luck, Yaeli babe, but if you find these fellows at parties in a drunken state you just have to figure on a certain percentage of bad ones. Maybe near 100%--and if you're drunk at the time, it's hard to notice their lack of character. On the other hand, life is a lot more interesting in that drunken state. Something to ponder on, no doubt.

Almost visiting from Michele's darlin, but a near miss is a good as gold when the woman is as beautiful as you. :-)

OMG. You just gave me a footloose moment. I hope you sing it loud and proud while doing the running-in-place eighties dance and wearing legwarmers!!

Michele sent me!

Love that Bonnie Tyler!

Demagnetized, huh? Now that's a novel concept!

Michele sent me!

Hey Yaeli, glad to hear you no loner hate the entire male population... :)

God, I haven't heard that song in years. Good luck. Hopefully your prince will appear when you least expect it.

You'll get your prince ;-)

I know about being an arsehole magnet. I'm hoping the guy I've just started dating doesn't fall into that category...would be nice to meet a genuine one for a change! Here from Michele's...HI!

This time I am visiting from Michele's, Yaeli the lovely.

I've already commented on the "men" part of your post so this time I'll tackle religion. You ask about the gods? I personally like working with the ancient Greek gods since they obviously had quite a sense of humor--though mankind was often the victim of that humor. Still, that form of slightly nasty practical joking on a cosmic scale would explain so much about life.

Good WHAT!? Thanks for coming to see me! You can scratch behind my ears & you can try to rub my tummy but don't do it to long cause I might put the bite on you!

You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince (I think there's a song for that, hold on, got it)

If you keep kissing frogs
Then one day you'll see
That where a frog once was
A prince will be

If you keep kissing frogs,
Yeah, kissing frogs ...

A very small band called 2nd Story (who broke up like 7 years ago) sang that :)

Oh, and Michele sent me!

Actually, I'm unmarried, by the way.

I keep telling my wife that all the good ones are always taken and she should be grateful for getting to me first.

What yellojkt said goes for me too.

Had to comment here belatedly because the I Need A Hero song was playing on the kids' Shrek 2 dvd as I opened up your blog... Come to think of it, where are the kids? There appear to be two adults sitting here watching the finale so it's a good thing one of them is focused elsewhere!!
Enjoy the camping, only light drizzle forecast here tonight then a sunny weekend!

The eighties was a great and wonderful era to have grown up in or lived in!
