eep! it's 2:48. hang in there, world!
it's time for the FPDG, rubdown theme.

i've never:
*gotten a professional massage
*made out with someone at a massage parlour (i said it!)
*gotten completely naked in company of strangers (yes, gyms count)

these always make me feel infinitely more interesting than i am.
drink if you have!

[also, when you're done, please fill out the map thing below. 23 of you have come here since i posted that. i'm wAtcHinG yOu.]

1) Drink if you count getting a little 20-minute freebie from a coworker who moonlights as a massage therapist. But it was one of those sitting-up with your face in a hole (a chair hole) massages, so it doesn't exactly count.

2) Not drink, spooky!

3) Drink-- when I lived in Oregon my friend and I hiked up to this natural hot springs-- it was pitch-black by the time we got there, and it was in the middle of some woods, and I thought we'd never find it. Then all of a sudden there it was-- we heard people murmering and suddenly we were in a clearing with looking at a bunch of naked people in a sort of natural hot tub with a wooden roof built over it. We just took off our clothes and waded in; something about walking through all those dark woods, we weren't about to lose our nerve and slink off. The other people there were itinerant mushroom pickers, as it turned out. We had the best time-- being naked in nature is something I want to do more often! -- and then we camped nearby (not naked).

1) Drink! I get them almost every week. Seriously. I'm on my third little "buy 10 get 1 free" loyalty cards. I'm ADDICTED. And a little ashamed too, because I enjoy it so much that I might as well be going to a prostitute, you know?

2) Not drink. (Although maybe a sip if you count the fact that some of the masseuses work in a little ass massage...)

3) Drink! At the gym. My heart pounds and I feel like everybody's lookin' at me, but I'd feel silly doing the whole "put your towel on, awkwardly try to undo your bra, etc" thing.

Oh, and I'd totally forgotten my Japanese public bath experience. Added bonus: shocking nice old Japanese ladies not used to seeing body art in their relaxing hot springs.
