I did a double take when I read that the younger men in Japan prefer to be thinner and more delicate than their women. They like their women to be physically fit and strong, and be the decisive one in their relationship. They think that the world will be a better place this way.
Wow, what a role reversal! For centuries, women in Asia have been known to be the more submissive ones in the household. I have noticed alot of other changes in the mindset of people now. In the past, pre-marital sex was frowned upon and having a baby before marriage was such a taboo but today, it's almost fashionable!
I have noticed some changes in my life too. When I was inspecting containers at the yard this morning, it suddenly dawned upon me that I can almost qualify as a blue-collar worker. I stepped out of the 'glamourous' advertising and design industry to enter into the world of shipping containers.
I'm not complaining really because I love my job... except when I had to do this...
Step into this tiny box which was then jacked up by the forklift...
...until I was right at the top of the stack of containers.
Oh man, I was shivering like a drenched kitten!
yes..but i also make my work using those containers.. does that make me blue collar too?
eh, yours probably not counted cos you don't have to deal with the hardware itself. You want to be blue collar too?
when i was in the navy---overseas--- we actually used those---but modified of course, and a bit larger---but still the same thing--as our offices...and my job at the time--since we were on an island, and the salt water was horrible on metal, and planes etc...my job was "corrosion control" on those container/offices things. it really sucked...so i mean, i KNOW how you felt up on top of one...it's a long way down aint it?
ya do get used to it tho. plus if ya get in the middle..you can sneak in a nap---and no one can see you!!!! LOL
Ah, now you know why we are soul sisters?! I can sleep in there but what happens if they load the container and ship me to somewhere far away?
You have taken a great leap of faith to make that career switch. From the look of so many areas of your life, I think it is working out very fine. Be it white, blue, pink or whatever colour the colar is la...
Have a Great Weekend!
WOW!!! You have to be lifted on top of those containers??? Tsk tsk tsk...
i never thought of that blur--- maybe it wouldn't be bad as long as ya didn't roll off---til ya got to hawaii...or texas maybe! :))
sounds like a lot of fun to me!
