After all the various moanings & mumblings about how long my posts are.... I figure yesterday's was so long that today, rather than me post, you all can actually read that post properly, instead of me being imaginative.

Plus I am busy.

Plus I only got the office now cause of a whole morning and so of meetings.

Damn the boss being back in town!!! And it appears he is around for 3 weeks solid! And seems to have this ridiculous notion that now I must start to work straight from 7.30 - 6pm. What the hell?? Did I sign up for this!?! Sht. Yes, I did.

Also, in the spirit of World AIDS Day - 1st December - Friday: If there is any HIV or AIDS-related question you have always had, please ask away on the blog or mail me (address is on my profile page) and I'll try to answer it on Friday.

I sent around such info last year for friends, now I need some new material. There are only so many times I can tell people that anal fisting is a high-risk sexual practice, mainly when in conjunction with other sexual activities!

Sheeet anal what!?

PS: Nice *short* read. :P

Champagne Heathen said...

Thanks for the question, Daeds. I'll get back to you on Friday!

The length of the post was in your honour!

harry said...

Champs, for someone who is repulse by the thought of anal siting, you sure seem to be fascinated by it.

Champagne Heathen said...


It is like those car crash things...you stare in horror & complete fascination. I think it is because I just cannot cannot comprehend it and the possible pleasure derived from it, really.

harry said...


Did I mention there was a fist on the chair.

kyknoord said...

Okay, here's one: Hypothetically speaking, if Jacob Zuma has unprotected sex with an HIV+ person and for some inexplicable reason, concentrated hydrochloric acid gushes out of the shower head and burns off his tonker, would anyone actually care?

Champagne Heathen said...

Rev - Whose fist?

Kyk - only the ANCYL. But that then begs the question, who would care about that?

harry said...

Of course people would care!

His liquified tonker may pollute the ground water.

harry said...

'On the fist day of Xmas.....;

Champagne Heathen said...

"Harry"/Rev - it wouldn't change the state of the water in Gauteng at the moment though apparently, with all the recent pollution 'mishaps'!

Keep singing....now I'm intrigued!

harry said...

'On the fist day of Xmas
My true glove gave to me
5 fingers not the usual tight 3'

Champagne Heathen said...

Ha Ha!

So exactly what day does the "Fist Day" fall on....cause I am dreading it already!

harry said...

I suspect that the 'Fist Day of Christmas' probably falls on your ass

harry said...


Ass Wednesday - the day you stick your ass on your forehead

Champagne Heathen said...

I ain't THAT supple yet. But if that is all that day involves, then I won't be too concerned about it. Just as long as, unlike Ash Wednesday, I can wipe my forehead after the ceremony!

Kevin Cadman said...

I think anal-fisting on its own isn't that much of a high-risk practice (unless you're specifically referring to the well being of your anus).

I can just see the campaign... "My boyfriend doesn't love me. He can't pressure me into sex..."

*fades into background*

"But it's not sex, babe. It's anal-fisting. It's 100% safe..."


Daedalus said...

Post somming new quick...

Koekie said...

A new post would be good. I was forced to read the comments. And now I am traumatised.

*crawls back into the corner and twitches*

Champagne Heathen said...

Daeds, I have JUST sat down at my desk. And I have an ear ache. Which I am have learnt does not put one in the best of moods. I am currently typin this with my head tilted at 90 degrees to the right...not an easy feat, especially for when trying to be inspirational. Give me a minute. Instead, think up questions for Friday.

Champagne Heathen said...

Koeks, you too! While you shiver and shake in your corner.

Kevin - i'll get back to you when i am inspirational.

When can I tilt my head the other way????????????????????

ChewTheCud said...

what the hell happened in here? its like a anal fisting bomb went off ;P champs you should know better than to put such shit in your blog by now ;)

Daedalus said...

"questions for Friday"..? Ey?

Champagne Heathen said...

Daeds, you just proved you don't read my posts! Read this post again...ask me HIV/AIDS-related questions and I will answer them on Friday (or try to at least!).

Kevin - ha ha! *shiver*
Ja, I know, if in isolation it should be "fine", but I don't see many people who engage in such an extreme practice ONLY engaging in that. Considering the tears it would cause anything from rimming to anal sex onwards would become extremely high risk.

Chews - ha ha, but I have no puns for you in return!

It may be big and bad oil and gas but locally together with Shell, BP run a very good Aids programme, from medical assistance through to counciling, even the toilets have had condoms for many years. So a bit of information from within the corporation. This message was sent out to the Africa region. And no you don't have to go fill up at our service stations, that bit's irrelevant.

On 1 December, BP will join the world in commemorating World AIDS day. The theme this year is Accountability, a continuation of last year's theme - Stop AIDS. Keep the promise.

We invite all employees to observe a minute of silence at 12 noon on
1 December in remembrance of all the people who have died because of HIV/AIDS-related illnesses, those infected and those affected by the disease.

We also urge you to take action by going beyond commemorating AIDS Day and taking personal responsibility and accountability for the fight against AIDS.

You can do this by making sure you know your status and protecting yourself from becoming HIV/AIDS infected, caring for children/families who are infected/affected by HIV/AIDS, talking to your children, colleagues and families about HIV/AIDS and building a climate of trust and acceptance.

In its 2006 report, UNAIDS is appealing to governments and policy makers to meet the agreed targets in the fight against HIV and AIDS. In the report an appeal was also made to create an environment where people infected with HIV can live positively without being stigmatised, discriminated against and labeled.

More information on the company's HIV/AIDS programme, as well as voluntary testing and counselling, can be found on the Wellness website:


Kind regards

Numbers - when are you going to start allowing comments! Argh. It is frustrating!

Thanks for that! I am impressed. Although the big guys are doing impressive work in the AIDS field. I know of the mining guys in particular, but it is interesting to hear that the pertoleum boys are helping out, especially as they are so strategically located!

# 302 said...

I'm thinking about it, I will open it up sometime in December, maybe after Day of the WoW, when I will personalise it all a tad.

So patience and I can comment in your space.

Our programme has it's roots, in Refining - Durban's Sapref refinery in a joint venture by BP and Shell, Shell run the site and it was there that we first got to see first hand a very effect, educational Aids programme, which has since grown in lotsa other areas, particularly with regard to personalised and medical assistance.

Our "Wellness" department can do lotsa stupid silly things, like make us do a risk assessments on our planned river rafting trip - next week but this is one of their better efforts.

So we'll see what tomorrow holds - remember say white rabbit - fellow champagnster - so that you have a good month, and a good day of campaigning.

Champagne Heathen said...

You have to explain this white rabbit thing to me...?!?!?

Great, I will eagerly await the ability to have my say on your blog. My 1st comment might just have something to do with the title of your blog though!(And thanks for the link!)

And your link in your last comment in this posting doesn't work for me!! Argh. For the Wellness team.

# 302 said...

Apologies about footnotes and comments, remember it's not all gonna be as articulate as you; that I am easily distracted; and my mother sometimes checks out what her first born is up to in chamapagne land.

The link? And intranet link so you won't get to it but I shall go check it out and inform you of anything interesting.

White rabbit, you need to say it on the first day of the month, it should be the first thing that you say as you awake from technicolored dreams - then the theory is that you'll have a good month - da'cord.

And the link you are very welcome I should have done that an age ago but typical male procrastination got the better of me.

My blog title, check out the archives, me thinks week two for the answer? And I could ask you the same question, I theorise about an "r" replacing an "n."

Anonymous said...

and thanks for the link 3doh2. i'm trying to figure out myspace for comments. so i am trying blah de blah fishpaste...

Champagne Heathen said...

I reckon your theorising is a bit off...If I am understanding correctly!

Cool, keep me up-to-date on the petroleum guys!

I'm sure I'll be commenting randomly and all about soon enough.

# 302 said...

so spill the beans with regard to titles, and like any good analyst will tell you - always have multiple guesses.

we got a nice key ring on the day - will check out the link for you - hold on can access it from here i think.

pause as i try to multitask here it comes - next comment

grab those I am not sure on confidentiality will delete later ok.

Champagne Heathen said...

Thanks! I've got them. You can delete. I'll read and comment on them a bit later.

My title - I LOVE Champagne, and my behaviour is such that I am often called a heathen by religious people. Simple really. When I started blogging I didn't expect it to become a daily hobby, and so I just thought up any random name and posted...

# 302 said...

such a simply explanation, any idea how the pyramids were built or am i pushing my luck.

well mine started out as big-bad-oil-and-gas, something that was created in a moment's frustration. i thought it would be all interactive and stuff but then got a tad nervous about the name.

so acting on that wise old adage of 'discretion is often the better part of valor' i changed it, to a little too much champagne can be bad for you.

it has it's basis in the fact that we still call it "champagne" even after all the name change fuss (and hence too much can be bad for you).

but i to, love champagne, it's such a sensible drink - and we are rather sensible - not pims sensible but stylishly sensible.

i could use a drop of the magic potion now, you try to upload files into a shared directory without your fruit being spiked.

anyway moving swiftly along - you've gotz the industrial espionage and the fingerprints have been removed - just deny everything if the cape town csi team ever quizzes you.

Champagne Heathen said...

I'm sensible?!??!?!?!? Excellent!! I don't think I have ever been called that!

# 302 said...

I say it in the very nicest of ways.

Got the I.T. blues at the moment, wish my system will sensibly co-operated.
