TMI Tuesday!!!!

Welcome to "Too Much Information Tuesday", a new weekly feature here at The Coffee Table! I was searching through some meme sites last week and happened upon this terrific site.

So here are this week's questions:

1) Do you have/ever had any dating or sex superstitions? (Wear 'lucky jeans' on first date, always light a vanilla candle, etc.) If so, what are they? Mine is kind of a "reverse" superstition: I never wear my "good" underwear on the first date. That way I know I will absolutely not be tempted to break my #1 cardinal rule: no sex on the first date. Even if my good sense doesn't kick in, my fear of embarassment over "granny" undies keeps me in check.

2) If you were stranded on the old deserted island, and a genie appeared who could only grant you one wish -- to bring one of the following people to join you, who would it be?

- your spouse/significant other
- an unrequited love or some person you've had a crush on
- an old/past love
- your best friend

I would want my significant other. I like sex too much. (wink)

3) Tell us "weather or not" you're in the mood -- how does rain, snow, sleet, scorching heat, sweltering humidity etc. affect your libido. Rainy days and snowy days are more likely to get me "in the mood". Scorching heat and freezing cold do absolutely nothing for me.

4) Are you a crying drunk, an angry drunk, a 'I'm drunk, let's screw' sort of a drinker? (And, if you do not drink -- which one of those things is the reason?) I don't drink. Really. And for no lofty philosophical reasons. I just don't like the taste of most alcohol and it upsets my stomach something fierce. I had my drinking days in my younger days. I was definitely a "giggly, flirty drunk" back then.

5) Who turns you on the most & why:

the activist
the author
the care-giver/healer (nurse, doctor, masseuse, herbalist, chiropractor etc.)
the comedian
the educator (professor, teacher, mentor etc.)
the model
the musician
the politician
the scientist

It's a tie between the comedian and the educator. I love a guy who can make me laugh. And I like smart guys.

Bonus (as in optional): Looking back, what's the one thing you've done which was supposed to be erotic, but didn't quite work out? Ummmm......whipped cream. Really cold going on, and it just left me feeling sticky. It made me want to go get a wash cloth. Won't be trying that again.

I'm not going to tag anyone. I would like to hear your answers, though.
Happy Tuesday!


Tense Teacher said...

1. None
2. My spouse, for sure
3. Extreme heat kills the mood quickly
4. I'm an amorous drunk for about 30 minutes, then I'm sound asleep and snoring
5. the comedian
Bonus - Ice in the... NOT sexy, just frigid! (Go to hell, Cosmo!)

Jay said...

1. I try not to go out with women who hate my guts. Other than that, none.

2. An old flame. Why not.

3. I'm a guy. Not much kills the mood for guys.

4. I'm about the same sober or drunk.

5. Probably the comedian. Maybe the activist cause they have a lot of passion.

Bonus: Can't think of anything.

So .. let me make sure I have this straight, J. If we went out on a first date, you'd be wearing your granny panties? I could leave my chastity belt at home? ;-)

Canadian flake said...

Interesting take for #1. I saw another similar answer on another TMI player's blog. I never thought of doing that before. ;)

Enjoyed reading your answers! Hope to see you playing again next week. Happy TMI! =o)

Avitable said...

I'm a smart comedian.

Ron Burgundy said...

Very enjoyable read for first time playing.

Those were good answers. But if I was on the island and had to choose, I would swap them all for 10 more wishes.

HoosierGirl5 said...

Tense - Hilarious answer for #5!

Jay - So true on #3. Just show up and get naked. That's all you guys need.

Craig - Your chastity is safe, sweetheart. There ain't never gonna be a first date. You're too mean.

C.Flake - I'm glad to give you a giggle.

Amorous Rocker - Thanks for stopping by. I will be playing again.

Avitable - Then you're the man of my dreams. But you're taken! (sigh)

Ron - Thanks! Come back soon!

Coffeypot - I was really worried about your reply to this one. You went easy on me.


Palm Springs Savant said...

I like your numer # 2 answer...you are a naughty girl! ;-)

Jeff said...

1. Second dates, I like to cook dinner for my date.

2. Old flame that dumped me, there is always some unfinished business and anyone else I would feel too guilty to strand on an island.

3. Rain and snow, no heat or cold.

4. Never been drunk, don't know.

5. The teacher - I like good conversations and living out childhood fantasies. ;)

No bonus - nothing comes to mind.

I always thought I would like to have Rachel Ray on a deserted island with me. She is attractive, a good conversationalist and could make some lovely dishes out of the roaches and stuff we could drag up,
