2009 End Of The Year Wrap Up!

Hard to fathom the first decade of the 21st century is almost over. Doesn’t it seem that time has sped up? The work day still seems long for those who are working but time as a whole is going by faster to me. Maybe that’s what happens when you’re in your thirties.

2009 End Of The Year Wrap Up! This is the post where I respond back to questions or responses that I have mentioned in previous posts. I have been lucky to get at least one comment on almost every post that I published, however because I don’t have a large following or even lots of people subscribed, lots of post go ignored. Many of you know what I mean. You ask a question and nobody answers.

Regardless, here are the updates. Oh, don’t forget to stop back next year, same date for 2010’s update! Happy New Year to my friends half way across the globe!

Desktop Screenshots: I had asked if anyone who wanted to would send in a screenshot of their desktop. One person emailed me their desktop. You can still email your screenshots if you like. It’s never too late to comment or email me about any post. This was sent in by Steve Jarvis.

Life’s Most Embarrassing Moments: I used Kanye West as an example for most embarrassing moment, but I fear he might not be done. He’s still young. Many people left their most embarrassing moment and I promised to leave mine here.

I was sitting on the toilet, I think I was 13. Don’t know why I forgot to lock the bathroom door. Even though I’m in my bedroom’s bathroom and no one ever comes down to my room; that day somebody did. My friend’s father had a collection of Penthouse Forum magazines. He brought one over to me and I was reading it while going to the bathroom.

In walked my mom. Any normal startled individual would have quickly hid the book, cupped his crotch and yelled, “GET OUT” or something like that. Instead I stood straight up and put the magazine behind my back. First, I stood naked (with and erection) in front of my mother. Second, the bathroom for obvious reasons didn’t smell all that great and third she came in and grabbed the magazine from me and my aunt peeked in to see what was going on. Even after my mom left and closed the door behind her, I was still standing there frozen. To make matters worse my mother blamed my father for having filthy magazines in the house where I could get to them. My most embarrassing moment also got my father in trouble for something he had nothing to do with.

This was time consuming. Maybe I won’t do this next December. I do want to take this time to thank all who have visited my blog. Morning Erections wouldn’t be the same without you! I am overwhelmed and eager to continue blogging. I hope my content gets better as I go and I will see you all next year. Be safe and Happy New Year!

The Princess Bride

April and I watched one of my all time favorite movies this week. The Princess Bride. Everyone by now (I hope), has seen Princess Bride at least once. If not you are a pitiful excuse for a human being. You’ve missed one of the all time classic comedies that both children and adults can enjoy. I still laugh at the same scenes and even though I know all the lines I find some new aspect to enjoy each and every time.

If you have not seen this classic yet, you aren’t the pitiful excuse I called you before, however you do need to take your rear to Blockbuster or go to your Netflix queue and rent this at once. Warm and cuddled in front of the television, popcorn in hand and an ice cold beverage, lights out; a cold December night or day is the perfect time to watch The Princess Bride.

If you have seen it please share your favorite scene in the comment section below. At our wedding I hired a fake minister who came in and spoke just like the bishop in the movie (see the clip below). I have so many so I can’t be sure but I think this scene is my favorite. Also, now that Fred Savage is an adult I think there should be a Princess Bride II and he can come read to Peter Falk. Just a thought.

“No Embarrassment Area” – Do You Pee In The Shower?

This is a new segment I’m kicking off today. It might be a segment and it might just be a one time post. No Embarrassment Area is an idea I had while watching The Dr. Oz show. He has a No Embarrassment Zone where any medical question can be asked without the fear of it being considered embarrassing. Anytime someone has a question there is a good chance others have the same question but were afraid to ask. In my No Embarrassment Area, I will come up with topic (if I can think of any more) where I hope you aren’t too embarrassed to answer or comment on. Feel free to leave your comments without fear. No one is going to judge you – least of all me.

In an interview Kelly Clarkson told a Blender interviewer that she not only pees in the shower but admits to checking the color of her snot when she is sick. To be honest, I applaud her honesty. People usually flat out lie when asked questions that might cast them in a different light, to friends and family. People lie about dumb things anyway. How many times has someone asked you what time it was? You know it was twenty seven minutes after four, but you said, 4:30.

When you can’t even tell the truth about what time it is something is wrong. People will tell you they don’t or never picked their nose, masturbate, snore, or even pee in the shower. Those are the ones you’ll see running down the street with their pants on fire.

Life happens. If you are brave enough leave a comment. I want to know if you pee in the shower. If it makes it easier for you to answer, urine is sterile when it leaves the body. Totally clean. Peeing in the shower actually cleans the tub as it travels to the drain. No need to be embarrassed. I hope you like the joke too.

I almost forgot to tell you that yes, yes indeed I do sometimes pee in shower. It is quicker than getting out of the shower and going. Just in case you’re wondering it’s not just a guy thing too. I have it on good authority that women pee in the shower as well.


Why do guys pee in the shower?
Because peeing in the bathtub is just disgusting.

In a completely unrelated thought, why is it that no sooner than we are squeaky clean and step out of the shower, people always fart? A nice clean butt, between the cheeks too, and then, pooooooofff!, soiled by dirty air. It gets on my nerves for sure. C’mon, I know I’m not the only one!
