More Rimbeau Less Rambo ?


With feral youth’ running the streets and the old being treated like cattle , with an fresh outbreak of sleaze as the ID contracts ate handed out to Accenture placemen ; with the independence white paper sounding the starting gun for the end of the Union naturally this morning finds me in a frivolous mood . I was struck by the lively phrase Celia Walden used for the describing the French attitude to the Sarkozy jogging infamy . They have called for more Rimbeau and less Rambo. ...She further reports that 4000 men last year had their man boobs removed ...4000!
The suggestion n is that there is something rather effeminate about a man caring too much about the tone of his abs. He should be defined by what he is not the way he appears .,.... you mean he looks pretty tall standing on his wallet ?
Good news for me this because since being mown down by an unlicensed driver in Brixton my cycling has been on hold with the inevitable result that the skeletal fragility of my heroin chic frame has plumped up to about 14 and a bit stone ( big bit actually ) .I was never Twiggy really. I played a lot of rugby at one time and I `d say my fighting weight is about 12 and a half stone mostly in the thighs . Armani hangs of me like a sausage skin .
The time I have saved from exercising, I have devoted to improving reading and so I am today fatter in the middle but some what less fat headed. I was wondering if this was a swap the ladies would appreciate. Not if the straw poll I have just conducted in the office is to be believed . Oooo no they say we like `em firm and taught and tight and mean and hard and with buttocks like two shiny ballbearings unyielding to the touch . Its not looking good for the faux intellectual then ....

Women are odd aren’t they , why do they have to be thinner then men would prefer and do they really want s to play their silly game with them .One look at the horror that is Amy Winehouse reminds me that I prefer and have always preferred a woman with a little extra in the boot .Marilyn Monroe at size 16 would do nicely .What J Lo did for the bottom I am going to do for the gut . Its sag is evidence of a relaxed sensual appreciation of the good things in life , talk , sex music and food . I do believe someone once put that rather better...

“If music be the food of love, play on; give me excess of it, that, surfeiting, the appetite may sicken and so die. ”Bet Shakespeare had better things to do than “tone .up”

I sympathise, n, perfectly formed for years, thanks to daily cycling, weight training and all manner of physical jerks, I had to stop all of that for a time after an injury and gravity got it's awful revenge. Now I'm a sorry sight to see and struggling to get back to even a semblance of fitness.

I'm all in favour of a relaxed sensual appreciation of the good things in life. It's certainly the case that the younger male is increasingly subject to the strictures concerning physique and appearance that were once uniquely directed towards women. Sign of the times...
Quite a thread I have going at my place, isn't it? It's coming to something when I have to forbid the ladies (!) from using the word "cu**"...

Regarding your comments on our feral youth. Shouldn't much of the blame for this be focussed on our feral politicians?

When PM Blair's son was found drunk on the street and a Cabinet Minister's son cautioned for drug use, did Chief Constable Peter Fahy label these parents as part of a 'hard core' of bad parents?

I am so sick of politians and senior police, who've undermined parental authority for a decade, who've failed to police and protect our streets properly and who've turned criminals into a priviledged social group, ducking out of responsiblity for anti-social behaviour among some young people by passing the buck to parents.

It's time politicians and police stopped demonising good citizens such as smokers, the overweight, pensioners and any other handy scapegoats and took their share of responsiblity for our social breakdown.

Jenny is a naughty little lamb, isn't she? Cranmer is catering to the religiously-minded, your good self to the English-minded, my blog is slowly developing into a mecca for the genitally-minded. And not a male commenter in sight. Bliss.

Though I'd love to have a blog, I doubt if I would ever leave my pc if I had one - and I'm such a pc addict even without a blog.

So much I want to do, so little time to do it. It just aint fair.

How do you find the time, n?
