Holy Cow, life has been crazy of late. Between work and family things...I've had little time and less energy to do anything creative, and I haven't been able to enjoy much of my favorite pastime blogging either.

Oh well such is life.

I've resorted to amusing myself more in the real world when and where I can...and lately it's been with the ever casual "What's New?" when you run into someone you haven't seen in a while or who doesn't know you very well...like the girl or guy at the drug store where you buy condoms.

Usually the exchange goes like this:

Jane: "Hey Pete, haven't seen you in a while"

Pete: "Jane! Good to see you, what's new?"

Jane : "Nothing much, how about you?"

Pete : "Same ol, Same ol."

This is where one or the other "has to leave...get to work...pop a zit...take a shit...etc"

Now I'm thinking with this happening to me anywhere from 1 to 5 times a day, there's got to me some opportunity to amuse myself so I've been changing the routine like so:

Carl from the coffee shop: "Hey LT, Good to see ya, What's new?"

LT: "Well, How much do you know? I'll just fill you in from there."

Carl: "Well...um...not much."

LT: "OK, let's say I start in 1986 work up from there. How's that sound?"



Wanda at the gas station: "Good morning LT, having seen you for a few days, what's new?"

LT: "I just got laid so good my dick hurts, and I'm not wearing any underwear"

Wanda: (turning beat red and stuttering a bit...I wish I never asked look) "Um..uh..well...that's um...That'll be $57.63 please"


Walter the courier I use occasionally: "Good Morning LT, I haven't been here in a while, what's new?"

LT: "I just remembered this morning that I didn't lose my virginity with Dorothy when I was 17 like I thought. I was actually only 16 at the time. Funny how your memory can play tricks like that."

Walter: (as he's picking up the package he dropped) "Yeah ...um...I sometimes get things mixed up too LT....uhh, ok, see you again LT"

You guys get the picture!! Just one day out of the blue I got irritated when somebody asked me what was new, when it's just a figure of speech and I knew they really didn't give a rip.

Walter, Carl and Wanda have asked me what's new since but now it's with a mischievous look in their eye...eagerly awaiting the answer...LOL!!

How do you amuse yourself out in the real world?

When someone asks you "What's new?" do you think they really care?

When youask the question, do you really care?


FYI...if you don't want to know the answer, don't ask the question.

Ok..what I get is not "What's New?"....I always hear "What's up?"....and a long time ago, someone said something to me....and everytime someone asks me "What's up?", I have a hard time NOT saying........

I dont think people really care when they ask this question, but they are being polite. It is like saying HOW ARE YOU, while you are still walking away!

I love doing this kind of stuff too. Though I'm best known for sneaking up behind tourists (getting their pic taken) and making bunny ears behind them then run like hell- I would so love to know what they say when they see the pics!

Oh the things we do to amuse Ourselves!!!!!!

LustyTaurus replies on 8/19/2006 6:04 pm:
hahaha...I think I'm going to find me a tourist today...

8/17/2006 6:42 am

I think "How are you" have become nothing more than polite words and people don't really have the time to listen to how you are, nor do they give a rats ass in most cases.I do ask people this and I really do care, but sometimes I give answers like you have mentioned here. ( to see the look on their faces) At my age, I don't give a damn if I shock anyone or not!

BTW LT, I can't enlarge that new picture you have put on here. It looks like GREAT BIG pink lips???? Is it really big pink lips?

Kiss me Baby

LustyTaurus replies on 8/19/2006 6:09 pm:
yes its big lips...hahaha..I can enlarge the pic just fine...hmmm, maybe you have a gremlin...

I am just being polite and it depends on the person if I really care what is new or not.

LT, how the heck are ya???

How do you amuse yourself out in the real world?
While relaxing at a sidewalk café, I usually enjoy creating silly stories about others around me, like how would they look as a whatever.... At grocery stores, I like to engage other shoppers in mindless comments upon the sizes of whatnots, with some sexy innuendae.

When someone asks you "What's new?" do you think they really care?
Only if they're really close friends. Otherwise, nope!
When you ask the question, do you really care?
Sometimes... if the askee is umm... err... interesting... or a really close friend. I don't usually ask such a question of casually met people.

Now, do YOU care what answers we give you?


LustyTaurus replies on 8/19/2006 6:10 pm:
of course I care.....

This was great, LT. No, I take that back...


Gawd, I sure hope I remember this the next time someone who doesn't really give a shit asks me "what's new"? Sure is much better than my usual come-back: "It's an adverb. What? you was sleeping that day in English class?"

LustyTaurus replies on 8/19/2006 6:20 pm:
I'm sure you'll remember it ZZ......and I'd like to hear what you said in response.

LT this is my daily hobby that has been a well kept secrect of mine, now u have gone and told the blogiverse. This is a breaking of Pirates Code 27a subsection 11b for which the penalty is to be hung from the yardarm by your testicles. As your eyes water you will reflect on this serious breach. Admittedly I have just made up the rule on the spot but you will have greater thing to worry about like; What if the wind picks up and u start to swing what will give first and will it hurt much if the knot is too tight?

Around here it's what's up? I usually say oh about five foot four or more if I'm wearing heels. . But, if I know the person who asked really cares then I tell them as much of the truth that I think they can handle.

When I ask How's everything? I mean it.

Or just slam-bast...them with the gorey details...Well! My dog died...while, I was at work and he baked in the sun...all day...OMG!! It was so gross...blah, blah...if they really cared...they would stick around for the whole story...if they didn't...they would be looking at their watch...saying...Oops!! I gotta run!!

That's hysterical!! I did that once in high school Made up a piece of paper and handed it out to everyone who asked me "What's new?" It went into many details about my life and about asking the question if you really don't care about the answer. It certainly made a lot of people think!

I don't get asked that a lot, probably because I'll do something like you or fastfifties but, what I do get is people asking me 'who'd you play with today' or 'who'd you go with'....I figure it's none of the business and truthfully as of late it's been just me or when I play racquetball it's just me but they don't seem to believe me and pester further....so now I just say "God...we had a nice long chat" upfront and wacth their jaws drop and stutter on out as they are either not the 'religious' type or don't want to go down that road with me... hehe

My quirk is when your finishing up a business transaction and they ask if they can get you anything else? Both know it's done, but the other party always has to ask that inevitable ??. so I reply yea, the winning numbers to the lottery if you please.
But now I must admit I have some ammo for when I have a 'live' one and can come back with an answer to put THAT look in their eyes.

What do I do to amuse myself...

Sometimes I imagine flashing people..

Sometimes I imagine, the FedEx guy just dropped his pen, I bend to pick it up for him and I take his cock out of his pants, and slide it into my mouth... right there at the reception desk!

Sometimes I see the bulge in a co-wkrs pants, and imagine him bending me over the reception desk, and pounding me hard with that hot hard length...

People can never understand why I'm blushing or why I answer the phone like I just had an orgasm... it's my little secret how naughty my imagination can be..
