Embrace your secret urge to do absolutely nothing today

The etymology of 69?

After thinking about same-sex marriage, I needed some levity. I'm now reading The Hedonism Handbook: Mastering the Arts of Leisure and Pleasure, which I should add, is a very nicely designed volume perfect for bedside or bathroom.

Starting with a rough history of hedonism in the 1800s, the author fills pages with the perils of structured living, statistics, definitions, lots of lists like "10 Most Underrated Pleasures", and other barstool wisdom.

Like, “Make friends with people who own boats.”

That image made me laugh my arse off!! Will try getting my hands on the copy (although I highly doubt if Iowa State's library would have it...)
