Maggie picked the Friday word. The idea is to do a post with a picture, poem story or anything that comes to mind that incorporates the word. Now before you scoot on over to her blog here you should know that you would be better off reading the post with no one looking over your shoulder and that you are like an "adult". The post is sensual and well written. I am sort of doing my bit too, but have been pretty much saddened by the this day today, given that we as a nation just threw out the writ of habeas corpus which is one of the most basic foundations of modern democracy. So I took the easy way out and here is my very modest contribution to the Friday word.
Even as I read the word "Pink", it brought to my mind the singer/songwriter who goes by the name Pink.
And some things you may or may not have known about her ..
Pink has revealed she has only seen her husband Carey Hart just three times since they married in January, because of her busy schedule. For most couples, that would be the end of their relationship. But the feisty pop star and motocross racer keep their relationship healthy by enjoying virtual sex via webcams, she says. “I”ve seen Carey three times since the honeymoon. But our relationship”s been like that the whole time we”ve been together,” Pink revealed to British newspaper the Daily Mirror. “We”ve been going out for four or five years and we would just meet in hotel rooms. Now we do the whole webcam thing.”
Other Pink related stuff, the word not the artist..
I have not quite gotten the whole doing a new born baby girl's room in pink and dressing her up in pink? I mean why the need to demarcate this at such an early age? Growing up in India I don't recall people doing that. Wonder if that has changed now?
If here I walked up to a Mom wheeling a baby in a "pink" stroller with "pink" accessories and said "Cute baby! What is it's name?" She might likely be very offended. She might say to me Doofus! Can't ya fracking see the "pink"?
Err may be it's just me. I don't get it.
Pink Box: Inside Japan’s Sex Clubs
In Pink Box, photographer Joan Sinclair takes us on a journey inside the secret world of fuzoku (commercial sex) in Japan, a world where kawaii (cute) collides with consumerism and sex. Unrivaled in their creativity and the sheer number of choices, the clubs featured in this book offer their clientele every fantasy imaginable. Subway groping, visits to the nurse’s office, and comic book character encounters are just the beginning of the immense list of possibilities that are played out in colorful playrooms for adults where no detail is overlooked. Sinclair’s photographs capture it all, while an introduction by sociologist James Farrer provides a brief history of commercial sex in Japan and places the images in the context of contemporary Japanese culture.Heh... The Japanese can be strange but hey whatever tickles their pickle..
An adicolor Pink Commercial...
