an innocent abroad....

...well, I'd always thought of myself as fairly knowledgeable with respect to sex, even if much of it is only theoretical, and gleaned from my voracious and random reading habit. But this one has me stumped : a Google search that found this site for the term 'sex the Russian way'. Heck. I didn't even know there was one specifically.

After a huge number of hours this week, I am now halfway with the initial work task. So just to keep me at the right level of neurotic tension, boss asked for a meeting with me and the other contractor (the one who I tried to abdicate to. And failed at that too, obviously) on Friday. In addition to the 300 plus hours already assigned to me for completion before the end of March, I now have another 1200 or so with the same due date. Only question is whether I run away before I sweat over it or after I miss the deadline.

Good thing I'm female. Pdoc on thurs asked if I listened to music while I worked, which I do, and tells me he can only listen to classical while he works otherwise the words distract him. Umm. At the moment (and most of the time), I am checking mail and sending some, playing sudoku, updating this and reading other blogs, listening to music, editing and updating a checklist of the work I'm doing, and running two separate work sessions doing different things - and I'd have a third work session going if I had another user ID. Either it's a girl thing, or I have a few more persona's than I know of.

Okay...what is "sex the Russian way"? I gotta know.

Sorry...can't help you there! Just ran the google search myself, and apparently there is a porn movie by
the name, but it's in a format unknown to my PC, has an eBay reference with 0 items under it - and most of the other refernces were in languages I can't identify, nevermind speak.

So if there is a specifically Russian way of doing the deed, you and me are both going to remain in ignorance.....

On the other hand, if it involves vodka I'm sure I could learn!

In Soviet Russia, sex has you.

That's too funny...my husband and I thought maybe it involved vodka as a lubricant..or maybe it is having sex while you are super drunk....I know, I know....bad stereotypes, but one of our best friends is Russian and she is a wild thing if she gets into the vodka. She says it really is a huge part of her culture...kinda like you and me jcat...ha, ha.

Gerbil...what do you mean by "sex has you"...is it like vodka has you? An addiction?
