dirty... dirty... dirty

Remember when I told you about my encounter with anal gland juice?
I know, I'd rather forget about it as well... (Sharkdog is doing well BTW)

BUT! (no pun intended - well maybe just a little...)

I mentioned some of the world's most disgusting jobs (according to moi) and told you about avian vomitologists (or, owl vomit collectors?).

I now know how kids gets started in this career path!


If Chicklet sees this I'm in deep doodoo.

BTW...

Have I ever mentionned I have a crush on Mike Rowe the host of "Dirty Jobs"? Cause I do *sigh*.


He's not afraid to experience the jobs we take for granted. Blue collar, hard work, stinky but essential jobs that make our lives easier (well, not all of them - seriously, avian vomitologist?!).

AND... He's funny!(all traits he shares with my Honey). Did I mention they both have killer blue eyes? Cause they do.



He said my name? Wait... he said my name? He said ANNDI!! Oh my.. THUD!

And for the chicks who dig dirty men...




YUP! He's my number two... after my Honey.





"I'm Still a Guy" - This song by Brad Paisley (current crush number 3) pops in my head when I think of these men... and really, that's what's sexy to me. Unplucked, unfeminized guys... growl and purrrrrrrrrrrr!

I want rugged, rough, a man who'll get his hands dirty. He wears boots to work (cause I have to). He works hard, sweats, and gets things done. He'll even grunt some.

A guy. Like my guy.









"Uh oh. I've got mud in my shorts. At least ... I hope it's mud."

I'm glad there are some women out there, like my Lana, who still like non-metrosexualized guys. I'm never gonna go in for peach facials or waxing.

Charles: Waxing ain't for sissies.. it hurts! But I'm thankful (and I'm sure Lana is as well) that you're not a feminized man my friend!
Here's to real men!

I love Dirty Jobs too! Mike is hilarious and it is actually very interesting. I love gettin' down N dirty while I'm building and fixing stuff...you can see results..I was a Commercial Realtor for decades and everything took months and months to come to fruition..that's why I always enjoyed building docks, decks, cottages whatever.

For two generations now we have been steering kids into white collar professions and now the Trades are all starving for fresh blood because the Boomers are gettin' on.

Technology has made a lot of those jobs a lot safer and cleaner and plenty of them are very high paying and require complicated problem solving abilities.

My oldest son is interested in being a Carpenter which I think is awesome..it would be nice to have somebody else around to fix everything.

You have a hormonal imbalance- this increases your chances in being picked up in sleazy bars... :) Hee Hee Hee...- Just kiddin' around again, dear...

Anndi said...

Donnnnn: Funny men are sexy men.
I work hard to make sure trades are safer. And I've seen the salaries some of those guys pull in.
Kudos to your son, noble profession that of a carpenter.

Buff: pffffffffffffffft! LOL
So which bar do you hang out in, eh? ;p

Turnbaby said...

Wait until you see the pic of Brad with the chain saw;-)

Jay said...

That dirty jobs dude is crazy. He'll try anything!

doggybloggy said...

did I get here at a bad time? I am no metrosexual but I dont like puke on my shoes either...

CrystalChick said...

My hubby is in construction and he works really hard and isn't afraid to get dirty. But he knows at the end of that long hot day, there's a pot of coffee, a meal, and a naughty woman waiting for him at home. ;)

My girlfriend LUV LUV LUVS her some Mike Rowe. She got us into the show. He's got a neat sense of humor!

Starrlight said...

Clean is one thing, spending more time in the bathroom than I do is another. Who wants to feel like you have to cut your guys meat for him to save his Man-Mani?

Slyde said...

funny that you mentioned dirty jobs.. i saw that show for the first time last week and loved it..

it may have to get plugged into my tivo soon...

VE said...

I didn't shower on the last day of river rafting...is that dirty enough for you?

Anndi said...

Turnbaby: Was it anything like the "lawnmower incident" ? *giggle*

Jay: He cracks me up... better him than me!

DB: He doesn't either... bat guano... well... that's another story ;)

Crystalchick: OOOOH! Construction! It's a pheromone thing I tell you.
Mike cracks me up.. tonight: penguin poop, I can't wait! Think he'll dress up for it? ;)

Starrlight: Bwahahahahahaha! I refuse to compete for mirror time with the guy I'm with.

Slyde: He has a sick sense of humour.. just like us! SMOOCH

Ve: You sweat.. I mean sweet talker, you!

Mimi Lenox said...

Metrosexual does not appeal to me either. I like a man to look like a man, dress like a man (tailored suits are sexy to me) and smell like a man.
Couple that with cerebral compatibility and a wicked sense of humor....hmmmmm.....

Lu' said...

Mike is funny isn't he. He did a show here in Pa but I missed it.

Bee said...

You know, when my hubs comes home in his dirty jeans and work boots... hummahna! hummahnah!

Unfortunately this show isn't on Cypriot Satellite TV. Here they're so obsessed with children going for degrees in media studies and the like that they have to import workers from Poland to do all the useful jobs. An electrician in London earns more than most graduates...

Dana said...

I like my men anyway I can get them...which isn't very often.

:smooches:
