This weeks guest, at long last and in due course is The Ice Queen, mädchen Monika. Monika was given the word Polyandry. Here is her response:
Remember January 4th, 2006? No?
Well, it was the day the host of this blog decided to threaten us with a shut down. I was two months younger and believed many things, so he kinda black-mailed me into doing this. Now, here I am, rewarding his bad behaviour. But the guy seems to have trouble coming up with definitions on Wednesdays, so I felt we oughta give him a break. Besides, he has puppy eyes!
The word I got?
What in the name of Thor...?
Doug mentioned that word to me once and I thought it had something to do with Pollyanna. I should have known better!
Let´s think about it: poly=more than one
Ladies, need I go on?
So here it goes:
1) absurdly, less common than polygyny. Which just makes me mad and reminds me of days back in Highschool. When a guy is busy playing the field, he is a stud. When a girl does it, she becomes a lady of monetary affection.
2) the Old Testament says: It is OK!
3) An alternative to many short-comings
4) the only quick way to receive multiple “Yes!” (es)
5) or what many call a Saturday night in Reykjavik
If you are interested, I advise a trip to Tibet, Zanskar, Nepal, Sri Lanka or Yunnan in China!
For me it is just a lot of Homogamus!
And might I just add: It has been such an honour just to be nominated amongst those of you who haven´t special-guested yet, but to win the Wednesday post this week has truly been orgasmic!
About Monika: Monika virtually approached these shores way back in the olden days when this site was white-on-black and no-one could actually read the words. When I realized I had been read by someone from Iceland I went to her site to beg her to sign my guestmap, knowing I would then have the coolest one. This was the start of a long and beautiful friendship, leading to her adoption by my father a mere week ago.
Lovely in words and pictures, Monika is merely stunning for the openness of her heart. After sharing so much of her candor, trials, tribulations and joys it wasn't hard to start calling her "Sis". Monika started life in the former East Germany, the oldest of seven children of a single mother. From there she found a new and truer family with her adoptive mother, Sabina. It's a wonderful story and no wonder she aggregates family so fast. Under the expert tutelage of Miz Bohemia, Monika's been vamping up nicely as suits her new single status if not her new big brother.
How to be a future guest on this site: Just send an email to dpascover at mac dot com. On a future Wednesday, after posting that week's guest, I'll send you an email with a word to define. You'll be expected to return your definition along with a graphic representing either your definition or yourself by the following Saturday. The only rules are no profanity and no novels, please. And whatever I make up at the last minute.
Oh, and March Hare, March Hare!
