This (mostly) Just In...

I'm Back! - As you probably noticed, I am back online at home and posting like a mad woman!!! (okay, not really, but 3 posts in 3 days is at least back to normal.) It's truly embarrassing how happy it makes me to have internet access again. When did we come to this?

Adriana Lima is Married - Fellas, it will be okay. You never had a shot anyway.

(While we're on this subject, I asked elsewhere why A. Lim seems to be the most coveted VS model when Miranda Kerr (and others) are so much prettier. I'd love to hear your thoughts.)

It's Mardi Gras! - No one I know is celebrating in any real way...except my aunt who is in NOLA. However, tomorrow is the beginning of Lent and I'm following Liz's lead and giving up alcohol during the week (except for the week of St. Patty's because I'll be in Chicago and what's the point of being in Chicago for St. Patty's if you don't drink, I ask you?). Please pray for our strength to make it through.

So, what's the deal with A. Lim? What are you giving up for Lent? And are you as excited as I am to see me back to the blogging...or something?

Just as your internet comes back, I'm discovering the wireless switch on my laptop is broken and I have to...PLUG IN. What is this, the 1880s?

I had no idea who Adriana Lima was before I read this post, and after seeing her, Marko Jaric can have her. He's a sucky player anyway.

I'm giving up church for Lent.

Glad to see you back :)

I am THRILLED that you are back...even more so thanks to your FNL post! I had not yet contemplated what to give up or lent, seeing as I just now realized it was Mardi Gras (obligatory noise-maker toot). As for A.Lim, well, I can't say I ever considered her enough to wonder just what might be up with her. Post another pic of Tim Riggins and I may have a little more to say...:)

Dude, I cried the entire time you were gone, I swear.

Well, I stopped briefly to eat cheese and drink a cheap 'n nasty Vex cooler (strawberry and pineapple if you care) and I peed once or twice, but apart from that I cried the WHOLE TIME.

On the subject of Adrianna, personally I reckon that other VS models are prettier, but Lima does the "fuck me" gaze so much better.

Lima was never on my radar at first, because as you said, there are others more traditionally beautiful than her. But it's how she carries herself, and the fact that she's got a look different than the others and maybe less "perfect."

Also? A fantastic rack. Sorry, I'm a guy.

As for her being pregnant... wasn't there a whole big to-do years ago about her being a virgin and saving herself until marriage? Apparently Marko Jaric rode down a rainbow on a unicorn and put an end to that unlikely situation.

There is no tangible reason why I like Adriana Lima more than any other model. It's the Mary Ann or Ginger question. There's no wrong answer. I just think she's hot. Actually, I also think Heidi Klum is hot, but she’s married to a talented musician and I can’t really compete with that. I bet Heidi would be hilarious to hang out with.

I could go on, but I have real work to do.

I think TIR answered my question with the comment about her gaze.

And McGone, did someone say she's preggers? I just heard she got hitched!

McGone said...

The pregnancy: It was at the end of the article you linked.

red said...

haha. God, I'm an idiot.

I am also giving up booze, but am allowing myself one day per week to drink.

I hate myself for having made this decision (particularly as an atheist) but I am an obese alcoholic, so there you go.

I am so old that I honestly didn't know it was Mardi Gras until a friend called me at 10 and was like, "Dude, where are some good bars to go to in [a part of town I never spend any time in]? No one's out tonight."

I don't know what it is about Adriana Lima, but she's no 1992 Jennifer Connelly.

No dissing Adriana Lima. She's way up on my lesbian list.
