Dustin Hoffman on being difficult. Marian Keyes on being depressed. Cute "50 Shades" joke.

Today: Insights into states of being—

Facing down his demons: In-depth with actor, now director, Dustin Hoffman.

Bestselling writer talks about fear, depression, chick lit, happy endings and being published. Marian Keyes.

You didn't think I'd forget the joke, did you? I mean, come on!  :-)
It's about four guys & a fishing trip, handcuffs, candles and rose petals:

Four guys have been going to the same fishing trip for many years.
Two days before the group is to leave, Ron's wife puts her foot down and tells him he isn't going.
Ron's mates are very upset that he can't go, but what can they do?

Two days later the three get to the camping site to find Ron sitting there with a tent set up, firewood gathered, and dinner cooking on the fire, sitting having a cold beer.
"Shit, Ron, how long have you been here, and how did you talk your missus into letting you go?"

"Well, I've been here since last night. Yesterday evening, I was sitting in my living room chair and my wife came up behind me and put her hands over my eyes and asked, 'Guess who?" I pulled her hands off, and there she was, wearing a nightie.

She took my hand and pulled me into our bedroom. The room had candles and rose petals all over. Well she's been reading 50 Shades of Grey. On the bed she had handcuffs, and ropes! She told me to tie her up and cuff her to the bed, so I did.
And then she said, "Do whatever you want."

So, Here I am!


  1. LOL! I think more men will relate to this than mass media wants us to think...

  2. That's why women are reading erotica or, as we used to refer to it, porn. No wonder!
