With the Olympics fast approaching, I spent part of this weekend watching the trials. I must admit I have this fascination with men's gymnastics. All that power and grace. It's very impressive. Not just regular impressive but cold shower impressive. I thought it would then be fitting this week to include these two well made, talented, and if things I have heard are true, good-hearted men.
Ladies and gentlemen, Morgan and Paul Hamm.
Like I wasn't going to choose the shirtless photo.
I got caught up with proctoring tests, collecting keys and training professors at work last week, as well as with homework for my classes and completely forgot to post a Hump Day Quote or a Friday Song.
I'm sorry. I'll try to at least schedule posts ahead of time if I know things will get busy.
Most of the hot licks I choose come from things I've been watching or people I have been talking about. Well, this weekend, the tv was simply background noise as I read. I spent some time today racking my brain (yes, it did hurt and it is a bitch to crank that thing by yourself). Finally, that 'eureka' moment came. The Chairman on Iron Chef America. He's sexy, charming, and, apparently, quite the martial artist.
I've decided to add something new. Either on Tuesday or Thursday (what you expected consistency from me), I'll tell you what book is sitting by my bed and what my thoughts are on it. By the way, all the readers out there should check out the Never Ending Book Quiz on Goodreads. I've answered over a thousand questions and am only about 16% through it. I even added a few of my own.
Back to the point at hand, this week, the book by my bed is The Picture of Dorian Gray by Oscar Wilde.
It's one of those that I've heard about for years but never gotten around to reading. I'm a few chapters in and am adoring the way Wilde writes. I'm in alt over it and I'd be in lust if he wasn't dead and gay. I have noticed a few traits of Lord Henry which I share (which I find somewhat disturbing). Dorian is charming and so very, very young. I think Basil is going to be my favorite.
