I have to admit, I’ve started watching Man vs Wild, in which this guy Bear – his real name? who knows – gets set down in the middle of nowhere with no provisions and must survive on his own. In past episodes he’s eaten sheep eyeball, maggots, snakes, and has even squeezed the liquid out of elephant dung – into his mouth (don’t ask).
But my favorite clip so far is the above in which he’s in the Swiss Alps and demonstrates how to survive a fall into icy water. First, after pulling oneself out, one must remove all of one’s cold, sopping clothing, including one’s Union Jack underpants, and then do naked push ups in the snow. Hot.
Hmm, how many months since my last date?

Last night YP and I had a drink at a gay bar, but for some reason I kept forgetting it was a gay bar and kept making eyes at a variety of non-straight men. Usually, I’m quite aware of my surroundings. Maybe it’s cuz the last time I went out drinking was at a variety of heterosexual establishments with my brother and his girl. Or maybe cuz I was hammered.
Apparently it takes just one and a half gin and tonics to get me this way. True, the drinks were gasoline strong, but I had a bellyful of David Burke’s chili and pasta to soak it all up.
Needless to say, this morning I had some trouble getting up. Hopefully I’ll be able to get at least some writing done, but I’ve a feeling it’ll be a mostly sitting around the Park and reading kind of day. I may or may not check out the fireworks. Depends on if I’m feeling hearty enough to stand the crowds.
Oh yeah: happy fourth of July. What better way to celebrate than to post a a video with a nekkid British guy hanging up his Union Jack skivvies?
