Being that it was the last full week of July, and I’m begrudgingly letting it go (although the 97 degree nonsense can be done), here is the recap for the previous week – one in which I was vacationing and relying on pre-programmed posts. Still, there were good things to be found for those who bothered to look. And now I’m back, resuming the battle, taking up the baton, and twirling like there’s no tomorrow.
To be honest, I was lazy, and relied on naked male flesh and shirtless male celebrities to cover (or uncover) for my absence. To that end, let’s give a revisit to all the guys who doffed their shirts and pants (and sometimes underwear) to keep the hits coming. Guys like Justin Greeley, Choi Ho Jin, Ryan Bertroche, Ryan Paevey, Marty Westmoore, Kris Kranz, Ben Cohen, Leighton Stultz, David Beckham, Brandon Rubendall, Christopher Johnstone, and Tom Daley.
Keeping things cool and hazy were cocktails like this magnificent yet simple limoncello concoction.
True story: I used to hate lobster. And Fritos. And pizza!
Many thanks to Tom Ford, who prepared things brilliantly for my birthday next month.
Yet for all of last week, I was in absentia, and happier than hell about it. I have never, in my dozen-years-plus of working for the state of New York, taken a whole week off. And I can’t believe I waited so long.Back to Blog
