Sigmund’s Adventures: Episode 1 (King of Queens)

For Christmas JPR and I had little stockings hanging on my bookshelf that we periodically filled with little goodies (Hershey’s Kisses, mini rubber duckies, fortune telling fish, Hot Wheels cars, baseball cards, etc.). Well, one day, a Sigmund Freud finger puppet appeared in my stocking. Even more exciting, he’s got a magnet in his noggin’ so he can be stuck a variety of places. Thus, we’ve decided that pocket-size Sigmund should travel with us as much as possible, and that we’ll chronicle his adventures here.

In episode 1, Sigmund takes a trip into Manhattan on a Friday night via the E train to accompany us on our Happy Hour bender and spout the wisdom of libidinal stages to all who would listen…

JPR suggested that I should also ad a nugget ‘o Freudian knowledge (or tidbits about psychoanalysis in general) to each one of these posts, and I think that’s just a fantastic idea.

Freud’s Fun Facts #1: Freud’s first foray (just can’t resist) into academia was a period of time in which he searched for male organs of eels and published a paper, “The testicles of eels,” where he documented his frustration at being unable to find much more about eel testicles (apparently a biological mystery) than his predecessors. It would seem that this frustration about eel testicles may have spawned (har har) his later research about frustration and human testicles. As Freud himself would say, after all, there are no accidents.

    HAHA! I love that the tiny Freud goes places with you. He’s probably thinking about poo and how much he is in love with his mother while he’s riding on the train though. The serious look on his face is just great.

    At the Getty museum in L.A., the gift shop sells a tiny, forlorn Van Gogh doll that has a detachable ear and every time I see him, I die laughing.

    Frued would have experienced much less frustration had Google been around in his days of academia. I’m sure he would have found a wealth of information on eel testicles, including some nifty photographs.

    All this talk of eel testicles has me intrigued. I think I might take a hiatus from rat testicles and see what kind of information I can gather up. After all, being female, I am (as Freud would say) green with penis envy!

    The skin is the largest organ of the human
    body and it has the ability to absorb the nutrients contained
    within almond oil just by rubbing it onto your skin.
    The oil is chock full of nutrients which help overall health, in addition to that of the hair.
    Because this oil is a very good source of the
    skin care Vitamin E, you will notice an improvement in the health
    of your skin and how smooth and soft it
    feels very quickly.

    Perhaps you recall chamomile from the times you were sick and
    your parent, friend, or partner, gave you a
    hot cup of this therapeutic drink to ease your suffering stomach.
    Some dealers carry this oil products that are scented, making the experience more pleasurable and even therapeutic.
    I was so upset because I was living at the beach and
    having a tan was so important to me.

    It works to mitigate the drying and physiological aging of the skin (anti-wrinkle properties) by restoring the hydrolipidic film and by increasing nutritive contributions at the cellular level.
    The oil is extracted from the kernels of the argan
    tree fruit and it is priced higher than other oil products
    because only one to three kernels are found in every argan fruit and
    the tree where it comes from is endangered and found
    in few places. This small kernal is what provides the Moroccan argan oil.

    It is a botanical that comes that comes from the seed of
    the jojoba tree. For something so incredibly ugly, it sure works
    well. I have been using jojoba oil for months and love the stuff.
