Virgin Auction

Depending on your perspective, this is either the end of the world or...uhm...not the end of the world.  Well, no.  From no perspective is it the end of the world.  But it is incredible.  Apparently a 22-year old girl has decided to auction off her virginity to the highest bidder.  It's being coordinated by Dennis Hof, who owns and runs The Bunny Ranch, a legalized bordello in Nevada.  (Dennis will be familiar to all you watchers of HBO's Late-Night "Adult" show, "Cathouse."  Come on.  Don't pretend you haven't seen it.)

So how much would you sell your virginity for?  Well, Natalie is going to get 3.8 million.  Yep.  You read it right.  3.8 million.  Not bad.  Forgetting for a second what it says about the man who would pay that much to have sex with a virgin, doesn't that seem like a pretty good deal?  I know; my perspective is not relevant here.  (Most men I know would have sold their virginities for 3.8 dollars, and been happy to have ended up ahead on the deal.)  I'm curious to hear what my female readers think.  Is it disgusting?  (Well, yes).  But, more to the point: would you do it?  3.8 million is a LOT of money.  One night of ickiness and you're set for life.

Home Work

Yesterday, at Home Depot, I bought--wait for it--a chisel.  Many chisels, actually.  (Well, three).   This afternoon, for the first time in my adult life, I used one.  It was probably the single greatest experience of my existence.

Well, no.  But our bathroom mirror/cabinet now fits flush into the wall cavity.  The wall's cavity-clogging excrudesence exists no more.  And why?  Because I own a chisel.  Excuse me: three chisels.  Because I am a man.
