This post is going to be long and that's because the ladies really put their backs into this question. I think their personalities come through from this point on. The Bachelor asked:
If you had to spend an entire weekend indoors with the bachelor, how would you make it interesting? Whatwould you do and say to make sure that neither of you gets bored?
Bachelor boy, I don’t know much about you – your favourite sports, your favourite food, your hobbies, or what kind of music you like (I blog from a silent workplace, so I can’t even listen to the special Bachelor sound-bytes). So I can only hope that you’ll like what I have planned for you this weekend. I’m flexible though – we can mix it up a bit. I should mention first that the weekend will be spent at my very fictional but also very beautiful and luxurious chalet in the Swiss Alps – perfect for weekend getaways. I should also mention that there is no way on earth you will get bored with such great company – and since you seem like a pretty interesting person yourself, I’m sure I won’t get bored either. And now for the play-by-play…
Friday evening & night:
It’s the end of a busy week, so I’m guessing you want to unwind, put your feet up and relax. (I know I do). I’ve got just the thing for you – an intimate dinner by candlelight for two. What’s your flava (tell me, what’s your flava)? Italian? Chinese? Moroccan? Thai? Japanese? Whatever you desire, the table will be laid accordingly. There’ll also be great music playing in the background.
We’ll have a leisurely meal with great conversation and your choice of wine (what do you think of Chardonnay?), then we’ll load up the dish-washer (only takes a minute), after which (wineglasses in hand) we’ll stretch out in front of the fire, listen to the music, dance (did I mention that I love to dance?), share memories and just talk (about family, friends, politics, life, whatever), get to know each other better…
We could also play a few games if you’re up for it. There’s ‘Battle of the Sexes’, in which we’ll each try to win supremacy for our gender, or there’s ‘Dirty Minds’ (a lot of fun), or how about good old ‘Spin the Bottle’? There’s also that role-play, dress-up game where each we get to guess who the other person is, based on costumes and accents. Always good for a laugh. There are also a few, shall we say, risqué, games that will be kept under wraps for now – I’m not gonna play all my cards at once.
After all the activity of Friday night, Saturday is a good day to sleep in and wake up slowly – and on this Saturday we’ll wake up to a sumptuous, lazy breakfast in bed. English? Continental? Nigerian? (Ogi ati Moin-Moin LOL) Again, your choice.
After a very relaxed breakfast, it’s time for the next activity. Can you guess what it is? Here are a few clues… tight, short, sexy clothes, movements that remind you of just how… emm… flexible the human body is, muscles tightening and rippling, lots of opportunities to move in close to each other under the pretext of ‘spotting’ your partner… and emm… sweat! Followed by an invigorating, yet relaxing shower? Yep, it’s a Saturday morning work-out session in my well-equipped personal gym. Did you know that, in addition to all the other benefits; vigorous exercise produces amazing levels of endorphins, giving you a natural high? And you know what happens to inhibitions when you get high… ok I’m really trying very hard to entice you with this idea, but if even after all this toasting, working out is not your thing, we’ll simply pick up where we left off yesterday night (the games – oh, and did I mention that I’ve got an indoor bowling alley?). By the way, just to see if I can sway you, you should probably know that I give a really great post-workout massage…
Ok, so I know a lot of guys are into the beautiful game, and you might very well be one of them… I’m also aware that a lot of big games are played on Saturdays – so this might be a good time for you to ask your closest buddies over for some football-watching fun. Now I’m not the biggest footie fan in the world, but I always enjoy watching ecstatic and/or anxious and/or sad soccer fans, so I’ll enjoy it too, in my own warped way. I’ll also be busy keeping you and your boys plied with drinks and snacks (I am the hostess, after all), and I’ll be rooting for the underdog to win each match (cos I always do). Ok – if you’re not into football, or you really don’t want the guys intruding on our special little weekend, there’s a plan B: we watch our sports of choice together (I choose tennis and athletics – and no, the fact that both sports feature scantily-dressed, extremely fit men exerting themselves to the point of exhaustion has absolutely NOTHING to do with it. I will only have eyes for YOU).
Saturday evening & night:
It’s movie night! You get to choose the first movie, I get to choose the second. If we aren’t too tired afterwards, we draw straws on who gets to pick the third. We get to critique each other’s choices, and the better critique wins a very special treat (again, not gonna spill all the beans just yet). As we watch, we share giant tubs of popcorn, and our favourite drinks. And if that doesn’t hit the spot for you, we can order in.
Sunday morning & afternoon:
Now I personally like to do church early on Sunday mornings – do you? Since we can’t go out, we could catch an online or TV service. Suitably inspired by the service (oh, and by the way, if you’re not into church, you can catch an extra hour of sleep while I catch the service), it’s time to move on to the next item on the agenda – brunch. A delicious, decadent meal just for the two of us.
I know you’re very family-oriented, so this would also be a good time to call the parents and siblings and have those loving Sunday conversations. Then after brunch, we relax in the living room, where we gist some more, laugh and read, with music playing in the background. You get to read some of your favourite passages from the books you love to me, and I get to read to you too. Sounds mundane, perhaps, but believe me, there is no better way to experience the power of words. At some point, I fancy an afternoon nap curled up together on the sofa. What do you think?
Sunday evening & night:
Time to wind waaay down in preparation for another busy week ahead. So we go for a dip in my warm indoor pool. (I hope you can swim, but if not, no worries, I have those floating bed-like thingamajigs) The pool has a glass roof, so we float lazily on the water and watch the sun set together, with, as usual, beautiful music in the background. As night falls, we linger by the pool and watch the moon and the stars – magical. We spend a little time sipping mojitos and getting all our kinks worked out by the jets in the tiny little jacuzzi. Then we shower and go straight to bed, looking forward to the next weekend.
We (Bachelor and I) would make a date for Friday nite @ his place...maybe about 7pm. I will get back from work, take a shower and shave/wax off every hair on my body (except my scalp). It wouldn't be a long shower; it'd just be a shower to wash off the dirt & sweat off my body, preparing me for the even better shower. I will order his favorite take out (since I wouldn't be in the mood to cook). Assuming this happens in the winter, I would wear a matching bra & thong in his favorite color, and I'll wear a thigh-length coat with black knee-length boots to his house. When I come in to his house, I'll immediately start my fun @ the door...where I will unbutton my coat for his viewing pleasure and do a strip tease to PCD Buttons.
It takes no genius to figure out what happens after he sees what lies beneath my coat. After that, we'll take a long milk bath where we'd get naughty & make bubbles. Of course, we'd have to take another shower after that. When we've exhausted our physical strength, we'll replenish with the food and wine I brought along.
From there, we will play a game we both enjoy - like twister. It's gonna be good, clean fun...with a twist of sexiness, maybe. But the point of the game would be for us to be friends and drop romance for a minute. We'll have ourselves in a twist and we'll fall out laughing. We'll gist about us and everyone else. We'll leave romance and all the pressure and be friends. Best friends.
Before we know it, it's time to go to bed. When we go into the bedroom, I'll groom my man. I'll clip his toe nails and clean the wax out of his ears. Then I'll give him a massage with one of those massage oils that warm on contact,while soft sensual music plays in the background. Do you need details of what goes on after the massage?
That's all for Friday.
I'll wake up and make some kinda big breakfast for us - something we both like. He'll keep me company while I cook in the kitchen. I'll tease him about the funny sounds he made last night. We'll laugh and eat.
When our food digests, we'll both clean the house up. I'll do the kitchen and bathroom; he'll vacuum the living room and bedrooms and he'll take out the trash. When we're done with cleaning, we'll take a nice, hot shower together, after which we may or may not get naughty. We'll watch the home video we made on his last birthday (not porn please!). We'll reminise on old times.
I'll have him read to me one of his favorite poetry books.
We might play another game, but a challenging one like Scrabble.
We'll have a small simple candlelit dinner, after which we'll do a little dancing.
We'll go to bed at the end of the night.
We'll go to Church wearing matching colors (ex: I might have a orange shirt while he'll have an orange tie.). We'll listen to the gospel and occasionally act like kids and pinch each other. After Church, we'll come home and I'll cook us some rice and stew (classic Naija sunday lunch meal).
After we have had our rest, we'll play a guessing game,where he'll guess what gifts,I bought for him.Then I'll give him his gifts. (I spoil my man,I do not wait for special events only)
Then in the evening, I'll return to the reality of my home.
Lazy weekends as I like to call them would be spent making love a gazillion and gabillion times over, reading the paper while passing it (I love the funnies and gossip section) to each other, making food from scratch and eating it to our hearts delight, making love, watching a good movie, talking about the movie and poking fun and the funny bits and when our eyes bleed from all that movie watching, reading to you (there is something romantic when partners read to each other) at night we can watch the stars and other planets through the lens of the trusty telescope.
I could say we'll spend most of the weekend in bed, on the couch, on the floor, wherever works. We'll take breathers here and there, watch TV, ofcourse we'll have to eat and get back to work cos I'm insatiable like that - LOL!!!
Seriously, I think this is the most difficult question so far:
Friday evening - Meet up at yours or mine, order some food and just relax and watch TV, keep ourselveves entertained. Go to bed and ummm - I'll leave the rest to your imagination.
Saturday - I usually wake up early but I'm sure we'll be asleep till noon because of the night before. We'll take a shower together and it would be nice if you helped wash my hair, that is such a turn on. What we do right after the shower depends on the mood we are in, if you know what I mean.
I'd really enjoy watching you cook for me, I think it's HOT when a man cooks. We'll eat, then watch some TV or DVDs all cuddled up. This will be a very lazy day - we'll spend the rest of it just chilling and you know what.
Sunday - This question is really hard!
We'll have a lie-in, get out of bed late, shower. I'll cook you breakfast - Pancakes
I've always wanted to play Twister, it'll be fun for us to try that out. Why waste an opportunity to be intertwined? Whoever wins get a 'favour', something different.
If you have any other ideas for games, we'll try them out and spend the rest of the day being silly, eating and just having a good time.
When it's time for me to leave, you'll walk me to my taxi, just as I'm stepping into the taxi, I'll turn around, kiss you until you get really excited, stop, smile and say goodbye.
This was a really difficult question, wow!
I would certainly buy loads of ingredients! And cook loads, get loads of supplies of you know what since we will be locked indoors heheh :P - well it's me and my man! Don't hate jo. Ermm loads of dvds, music, just set the ambience for a fun weekend but not put too much effort because that can backfire - I have had times when the guy pulled a sickie and hereI was making jacket potato from scratch and planning a 3-course dinner.
All in all, he will be guaranteed a GREAT time - I can be homely/motherly too, as I am a first born - so he will be well taken care of :o)
Well, because it takes two to tango. I'll find out what his interests are, and then work with that. I would use this time to get to know him a lil' better, and vice versa. Since he is highly intelligent and well-read, I would find out what his views are on certain things, pick his brain a bit, so to speak, and if possible, learn something new from him and hopefully, him from me. Knowledge is a never ending process.
Also because he is adventurous and loves to have fun, I would try to make the atmosphere playful; come up with silly games, lol..even games from my childhood, like, hmm, table soccer, musical chairs..Spin the bottle, truth or dare...e.t.c ..; if im lucky enough to have access to electronic games as well, i.e, PS2, even better..lol..im a final fantasy and pro-evolution soccer fan..if he's interested in video games, we could play a round or two, depending on his interest level. Because im a music buff, and I love to dance, if we have access to music, I'll spin a record or two, show off my skills, and hopefully, he'll do the same.. I love to cook as well, so, in between all this, I'll whip up a few delicacies...They say the way to a man's heart is thru his stomach. Im a very spontaneous person, so, all in all, we'll just play it by ear and see how the weekend goes.
Hopefully, our auras will match up and we won't strangle ourselves or butt heads before the weekend is over.
I am a fly by the cuff kind of girl so i will not have an hour by hour plan of what we will get up to but i have some general ideas. Movies are a go. Cuddled up on the couch or even wrapped up in blankets on the carpeted floor. Slow love making in the middle of a movie or hot hot sex in the kitchen. Whatever we feel like. Reading magazines or books in total silence, with my feet on your lap. Sometimes words are a distraction. Total silence but in total bliss knowing that you are there with me. Board games - maybe. I prefer to make up my own games with very naughty rewards. Naughty not sexual. Showers together, cooking together (i think there is something so intimate about a couple cooking together - there has to be a rythmn going or they just get in each other's way), massages, lots of I love yous. And some role playing with appropriate accessories (figure that one out). My type of weekend.
