TMI Tuesday

Joan Crawford, tats and The Dynamic Duo all in one post. I love this week's TMI Tuesday.

1. If your partner buys you a sexy little "something" is it a present for you or for your partner?

Isn't the whole idea of a "partner" - - someone to share your life with and also, someone who knows when to grab you by the neck and give it to you like the bitch you know you are - - isn't THAT a present in and of itself?

The rest - - the toys, the leather, the Batman and Robin costumes - - that's all gravy.

2. What are 3 characteristics of "your type"?

Honesty. Makes me laugh out loud. And honesty.

Honesty twice. Because it's the most important thing and it's rarely, if ever, there.

3. On a scale of 1-10, how good a cook are you?

With a Paula Deen recipe: A 10!

On my own with random food and a stove: Minute Rice takes an hour and a half. Then, I burn it. Then, while carrying it from the kitchen to the dinner table, I lose it.

So, I'd say my rating would be a 2. Cause at least I'm trying, right?

4. Tattoos: Love them or hate them. On you? On a partner?

Love them, on me or anybody else.

The only reason I don't have one is because if I finally decided on a tattoo and actually had it done, it would cause a chain reaction that would end up with me having huge sections of my body covered with everything from Robin's "R" on my chest to "Property of MGM" tattooed on my ass.

For those of you who don't know (i.e. "straight people") that last one is a reference to Faye Dunaway's lines in MOMMIE DEAREST.

And while it's hysterical to think of actually putting "Property of MGM on my backside," I have a feeling that in the heat of the moment, my funny tattoo would cause many a gay man to see it, laugh and suddenly "go south."

No tattoo is worth that.

5. Stubble: Good or bad? How often do you shave?

I love stubble, but I shave once a day because my beard isn't that full and I don't find my stubble sexy.

That was a question about my face, wasn't it?

Bonus (as in optional):What are a few of your favorite things (both sexual non-sexual)?

So tempted to just list the fucking song and be done with it.

But that would be too much.

So here's a link to the lyrics.

If it's good enough for Julie Andrews, it's good enough for me.

I'm so with you on #2.

Aaron said...

Good answers! And yes, you're so absolutely right on number 2...those are my most important characteristics, too.

Those and big feet--I suppose it's too much to hope for all three...?

Stephen Rader said...

Whim - It's everything isn't it? Honesty is the key and yet, so many people say "abs" is what they're looking for. Oy...

Aaron - Big feet, huh? I've always found that the nose tells quite a bit. No. Now that I'm thinking about it, the nose doesn't. So, I'm going with big feet, too. Something tells me that our list is not unique to just us!! :)

Your answer to 3 cracked me up, love it. I also thought of doing the same thing with the Bonus answer but I was too lazy to go look for the lyrics and copy them, heh. All of your answers were great! Happy TMI! :)

just me said...

I love tattoos, and plan on getting one or two myself. On a man, fabulous.

I love that movie. I had it, until my sister-in-law stole it.

Polt said...

wearing Batman and Robin costumes with a Joan Crawford tattoo on your ass while singing Julie Andrews songs....

*SIGH* why can't MY gay life be THAT exciting??????


Stephen Rader said...

Amorous Rocker - Thanks! My answer to #3 is a little too close to the truth, actually. Happy TMI!

Just Me - If you need a copy of MOMMIE DEAREST I will gladly send you a copy. A Christmas present from me to you. On dvd even! :)

Polt - I wish I was that gay! Only a handful of men achieve that level of gayness. And oddly enough, there have been three of those uber-gays featured in the center square on HOLLYWOOD SQUARES at one time or another. :)

Mark in DE said...

Mmmmm... stubble......

Mark :-)

the joy said...

#2 lmao! How do you lose the rice? I knew someone who burned rice. But she was on crack...

Batman and robin? Is it wrong that I want to dress like a black Joan Crawford? You know she was a dom, the way she kept those kids in line.

Doug said...

Tattoos... ICK. On me or anyone else. I absolutely hate them. As I pre-school child, I wore long sleeves and sweaters even in hot weather so I wouldn't be forced to finger paint, so I'm sure that's all connected somehow. (Note to self: talk about paint and ink with therapist.)

Stubble... yum. On me or anyone else.

And your number 2 answers are right on, girl.

Thomas MacEntee said...

Well Stephen I have a different version of Favorite Things:

Stringing young hitchhikers up in my attic,
Drinking ten beers and then driving erractic,
Letting the air out of kids' water wings,
These are a few of my favorite things.

Stephen Rader said...

Mark - I'm with you on that one.

The Joy - There is NOTHING wrong with wanting to dress like a black Joan Crawford!! And if you ever do, I want pictures. No, I want to be in your entourage!!!

Doug - Really, you don't like tats? How on earth do you watch gay porn these days? :)

Thomas - Okay, if you have the rest of those lyrics, I will sing them at my next gig. I'm serious as a Dick Cheney heart attack. That is hilarious!

Steven said...

The good enough for Julie Andrews response is a hoot! I've never liked stubble on myself either until friends told me to keep it. After the second day - "Bye bye!" No matter how clean-shaven I am, you will ALWAYS see my "beard" in a photo.

Stephen Rader said...

Steven - I actually shaved late in the day yesterday, so I didn't shave this morning and I have a little stubble goin' on. We'll see if anyone A) notices and/or B) likes it. :)

SeaRabbit said...

Honesty... yes... rare... and the lack of it has caused so much damages... at least for me... ;-(
That quote from Joan Crawford had me lauging out loud!
Happy TMI!

Stephen Rader said...

Searabbit - Honesty is definitely key for me. The damage that it has caused me in past relationships makes it crucial from this point on. Happy TMI!
