Desperation can have its rewards.

For all my loyal readers out there who are concerned after my last post (for all zero of you, besides me, who have read this deep and witty blog)...

It turns out that desperate sex is the best sex we've ever had, and really really good sex goes a long way to bringing two people close again. So we are on Day 2 of Dr. Isis's Seven Days, and I have to give her major kudos, because it was just what we needed. She is a goddess.

And yes, I am still employed. However, I really really need to wind up this post doc and move on to a Real Job.

What I do not need, however, is a new XBox 360 Live. But that is just what Prince Charming went out and bought this morning. It is OK, though, because this is not where he plays his all consuming video game. It is only for streaming Netflix and movies, all in an effort to lose our dependency on the cable company and DVR. And that would be a good thing. As long as he excited about all these "home improvement" projects he is here with the family and not locked away with his video game. And this is just what I needed. So today, today I am Happy.

That sounds tough. Good that you are taking steps in the right direction (I was going to try for some double entendre, but couldn't make it happen).

Have you ever read The Five Love Languages by Gary Chapman? I really, really liked it. It's all about how to communicate love to your partner (or children) in a way that he or she can understand. The five ways are
*acts of service
*physical touch
*words of affirmation
*quality time.

Everybody experiences them all to some degree, but we all have one that is more important.

Most people give love in the way that works best for themselves, but you have to learn what your partner is most receptive to. The book is peppered with biblical references, which I could do without, but they aren't too intrusive. You should check it out.
