Reading Week... and masochistic tendencies.

“From too much reading and too little sleep, his brains dried up and he withered his wits.” – Don Quixote

Ahh... Reading Week at Reed College. Yes, it's intense enough to deserve Capital Letters. There's a stim (stimulants) table in the lobby of the library, stocked with chocolate, coffee, mate (MA-tay), green tea, black tea, 'dragon tea', ginko pills, ginko extract, guarana, Vitamin B12, nicotine, wasabi, caffeine pills, piracetam, and many more obscure and barely-legal stimulants.
This array is meant to facilitate the re-reading of your entire syllabi from all your classes - for me, this means that in the past four days I've re-read The Iliad, Works & Days and Theogony, Greek Lyric, The Presocratics Reader, Herodotus' Histories, The Oresteia, The Bacchae, Antigone, Oedipus the King, and nine chapters of Biology. Ooooh, aaaaahh....

See, here I exhibit typical Reedie tendencies, as defined in Theresa Swayne's article, "Stress Culture at Reed":
"Academic life at Reed is strongly flavored by what I call the 'stress culture.' Within the stress culture, social life consists of agonizing aloud and at length about how much work one has to do before an audience of admiring colleagues...This may be accompanied by the exclusive wearing of black, a cultivated gaunt and haggard look" (observe) "and an addiction to caffeine and/or nicotine... The high holidays of the stress culture are Reading Week, Finals Week, and Thesis Day. Its acolytes are freshlings in the throes of a Hum(anities) paper; its novitiates are those taking the junior qual(ification exam) or, perhaps, organic chemistry; its adored saints are seniors in labor with the T-word" (that is, the Thesis). Note my skeptical expression:

I think, perhaps, that some good old fashioned 'chilling' is in order. I hereby declare yesterday an anti-holiday, in which I will not succumb to the cracked-out obsession with studying, slumped over a stack of textbooks and lecture notes until your back feels as if it will never be whole again.
So, as I said, that anti-holiday was yesterday, so today must be the day I re-read Plato's Republic and the Trial and Death of Socrates! Once again, ooooh, aaaaah....
(See? I'm agonizing aloud and at length, for "the litany of suffering is recited incessantly to the exclusion of other activites, such as actually getting the work in question done.")

And where is the wind-blown and terribly delayed saga of your getting out of Reed-town and back to the pleasant penninsula? One would have thought with all that "free time" you would have cleverly tracked your adventures in several unanticpated airports for all your readers to share.

Here's trusting you have your wits about you now, however, are home and warm and not so wind-blown.

Merry Christmas nonethtless.

She pulls away from him and hops up onto the edge of the hot tub, staring at him, hoping he will take the initiative.
She puts her hand slowly down her bikini to caress her wet pussy. Casey moves closer to her as she sticks her finger further into her pussy.
Before his bbs preteen link can touch her body, she pulls her soaked finger out, traces it on his bbs loli sunbbs, and slowly licks his bbc pictures lolitas clean.
He moves his head down her body, kissing her skin on his way. When he reaches her bikini,
he unties each side with his teeth and throws that piece in the hot tub as well. As he moves further down still, he kisses her stomach,
traveling down to her smooth pussy child sex slave industry. He starts by lightly kissing on the outside, all around, then penetrates her deep purple with his tongue.. slowly.
Moving in closer, he surrounds her clit with his dark russian lolita and sucks gently. With his free nymphet lolita around and his tongue circling her clit,
he slides a finger inside, fucking her faster and faster. He moves up and replaces his finger with his dick,
keeping up with the pace of her heartbeat felt through their chests.
They fuck so fast and hard that she is left with bruises and abrasions on her skin from the concrete that aren't found until the next morning.
"Damn, baby, I can't tell if I had a good time or if you kicked my ass. Maybe it was both," she said.
