Halfway Point

Halfway point, or nearly, through the weekend and here I am staring at a blank blog post, wondering what to say that might be interesting. The odd thing is, it’s nearly always easier to think of things to put in the blog when I’m driving around or going about my day; I will start writing them down from now on.

One thing I’ve noticed is that no matter what, day after day, the most popular terms entered into search engines to get people to my site are “Sakis Rouvas,” “Carlos Ponce,” “Marco Dapper,” and “Bear Grylls Nude.” (Nude, yes, never just Bear Grylls, but always wanting to see him nude.) That last one is odd because I don’t have any pictures of handsome Mr. Grylls nude on my blog, although I’ve certainly seen him nude – with his bits pixellated out of course – on his show. What’s really odd is that if you Google “Bear Grylls Nude” and click to see images, you get a NSFW pic of Marco Dapper I posted a link to. Very strange indeed. But I do owe my public the courtesy of giving them what they want so, if you’re over 18, here is a real actual NSFW picture of Bear Grylls, Nude (from the show but they seem to have forgotten the pixellating pixie, or the director was indulging himself and us).

I’m not sure but in the picture, his gentlemanly bits look a little less pixellated in this shot…and perhaps not as cold as might otherwise be assumed…just saying, is all. Confession: to me his sexiest features are his powerful legs and his willingness to put himself in danger and discomfort for my amusement. Thank you, Bear, for eating live worms for me.

Regarding the others, well, the big thing is that Sakis Rouvas has taken to publicising his every move on Twitter, which I’m still not too fond of. (Always fond of a bit of Sakis though.)

A Song You Should Listen To

You should listen to “La Tête Haute” by Les Cowboys Fringants, a néo-trad group from Quebec. This video shows the lyrics; they’re very touching and the voice of the lead singer is so pure:

(It’s about a sick nineteen-year-old at what he knows to be his last birthday party making his mind up to die with his head on high.)

I came across it while driving Bob around; he came with a few months’ trial of XM radio, on which is a station called Air Musique which plays a very limited selection of Quebec music. That’s an advantage when you’re trying to learn the lyrics though!  I had to take a picture of the display of the radio system so I could find the music on iTunes.

A Show You Should Watch

You should watch “Better Off Ted” on ABC. It’s smart, well-written, funny and stars Ellen’s wife, Portia De Rossi. C and I both liked it.

Two Movies I Should Watch

I’ve had Australia and On the Other Hand Death out for over a month or so now and haven’t watched them at all (that’s why I can’t say whether or not you should watch them–watch this space!). This darn internet keeps dragging me away from all my usual interests ( and if I don’t start watching the movies I’ll find myself questioning why I have netflix at all. And bugger it, I’ve just found out that I can’t watch instantly because of some error with my browser. Grrr.

Boing, ’tis Spring!

Not that you’d know it from AngloAm and his dh’s activities; we spent half the day in bed, half of that cuddling and the other half sleeping, and only emerged to get dinner. Utterly unproductive! And a waste of what I believe to have been an utterly gorgeous day with perfect spring weather. After all this cold, rain and gloomy dreary weather we’ve been having lately. Tsk tsk! We had planned to get up early (!) and drive to West Virginia.

Back story: there were a few cabins there that we’d looked at on-line, not to buy now, but to see what your money would get, and we wanted to go see them, but we couldn’t find them on line again. Some of them were near Seneca Rocks, one of our favourite locations in WV:

It’s in the Monongahela National Forest but there’s a valley to the south that looks just like Switzerland and we both love it there. A cabin up there is probably on our ten-year plan as it were; with water (a brook, on a river, or a lake) and nearish to a main road. It doesn’t have to be a big fancy lodge, but it should be within three hours of DC or so, so that we could go up for most weekends.

However, we were very lazy indeed today and didn’t. Tomorrow we probably won’t – we have “things to do.” Oh, well, c’est la vie.

Goodness, is it that late already? I will take my leave by leaving you this sexy video of a sexy Marine relaxing after seven months in the Horn of Africa. I don’t think it is possible to watch this video without smiling. We’ll return to our Eastern European goodness in my next post….

(He’s just so cute and funny!)

Feels Really Over Now

Now that all the fuss about New Year’s is over it seems the festive season of 2007 is done with. It was good for AngloAm and his C, I think. Thursday and Friday of last week were as you can imagine very slow at work. Both days I went to the gym after work and enjoyed myself (yes!). Not as much eye candy as I might hope (is there ever?!?) but that’s not really what I’m there for. The main trouble was that the gym was closing at 1700 and they wanted us off the equipment by 1630, so I had to end before I was really ready. Also, I trotted back up the stairs on Thursday night so fast after hopping off the ‘mill that I nearly passed out.

Friday night I had fun for dinner with my friends at Plato’s Diner downtown. Luckily the students are away for Christmas so places like Plato’s are available to us ‘townies.’

Saturday Neal came and received my three weeks’ worth of typed up eating. He’ll analyze them this week and I’ll get the results this coming Saturday. I can wait. Did some shoulder and lower back stuff because I’d mentioned that my hips seem to tighten up quick when I walk. He opened up a bit about his unhappy childhood and lack of closeness to his mother or father. He seems to have gained a lot of empathy from this unhappiness and loneliness and it comes out in the way he works with me. Later, C and I went to our friends’ K&D&J’s house, far too late for their annual Open House party. We stayed around after the last of their guests left and grazed on the goodies they put out. So good and so filling we didn’t have a ‘real’ dinner or watch the movie we brought. Sadly we couldn’t stay late because of having my aunt and uncle the next day.

Which put us in a quandary as to what to serve; we finally decided to follow my dad’s advice/order and only put out dry biscuits with the tea; it seemed sparse. But my aunt, who’s so skinny now after her stomach stapling, seemed pleased. Get this; they brought over a coffee cake ring from some bakery in Nesconset, NY, where they live, as a contribution – but my uncle had sliced off a piece for his breakfast. How classy. Nobody mentioned her surgery, but I bet on their way over they mentioned that I didn’t want it mentioned. Is it a sign of one’s importance, or one’s mental fragility that people make allowances for one?

Monday – work. Nothing happened but I finally got my performance appraisal support form done. Phew. Doesn’t look like much but I don’t know how much detail I’m to go into. I can always expand it.

Monday night C & I sat around for a bit but were in bed early. I don’t ‘get’ New Year’s. I mean it seems so arbitrary. However, today, after visiting Lowes in Glen Burnie (much eye candy!) to pick out a fridge for our media room, I wrote out a few resolutions on my lap top. Which is where they are still but tomorrow I’ll post them here, redacted for any loved ones’ privacy, and keep you posted on my accomplishments.

Brett ChuckermanMarco DapperSpeaking of the media room, I sat in it and watched the hillarious “Eating Out Two-Sloppy Seconds.” It’s far from family viewing unless the family is the one that Sister Sledge sang about. It stars the delectable Brett Chuckerman, here on the left, and the unfairly handsome Marco Dapper, here on the right, where he’s enlargeable. Both Brett and Marco treat us to some full frontal nudity, and if you’re over 18 and not at work or church or someplace where the sight might frighten the horses, you can click here to see Mr. Dapper in the movie where he definitely has a big part. All kidding aside, the movie is funny and clever and I think I’m going to get it and “Eating Out” for myself. Sadly I can’t really show it for my friends when the come over this Saturday night but we have the Simpson’s Movie which C got for Christmas and which we haven’t seen yet. I have to find a good vegetarian recipe – do you know of any?

It’s getting late and I need to get moving. I’ll leave you with a cleansing picture of Chris Meloni in the shower. Later on we can see some ‘NSFW’ videos and pictures of Mr. Meloni that prove that he, too, has a big part to play.
