I promised my straight male readers some heat today, didn’t I? I guess that means I can’t really toss a Marcus in there. Hee hee. That’s okay. I have lots of him on my hard drive.
Before I toss out some hotties this Wednesday, I have a tiny little story to tell. Awhile back, when I first was introduced to Jester here online, he made a joke to me in IM about being the token gay on some blog rolls. I joked back that he wouldn’t be the token gay on my blog roll because that role was already taken. It wasn’t a joke though. There really was a gay on my blog roll before I ever added Jester.
Bella Daddy Blog is the name of his blog. His name is David and I’ve known him, and loved him, since high school. I knew his mom, his brothers… He is a part of my family, went on vacations to Washington with us, and lived in my parents’ house when he had trouble with his step dad. Over the years we lost touch. I think we hooked up once or twice, but then he found me during a really important time in his life, the birth of his first child two years ago. The story of Bella, and of David’s life now, is an amazing one.
I guess the reason I’m telling this story is because a couple of things happened yesterday. One, Gooster twatted about getting his first invite to a gay wedding. And two, David sent me a link to the photo album of his trip to Italy with his partner and their daughter. Their kid is cute as can be, but the photos of David with Vince showed me something that I knew with my head, yet hadn’t really seen with my eyes. (We’ve been talking online. I have yet to meet Vince.)
David has it all. The love, the kid, the whole nine yards… and I am so incredibly happy for him. The photos of him with Vince are like looking at photos of Jester and UMB together. There’s that indefinable oneness, that sense of just incredible happiness. It brings me much joy to know that David has that. Here’s a link to the photos, so you can see for yourself what I’m talking about. Their happiness leaps right off the screen at you. Gay or straight, I don’t know how anyone can not see the love in these photos.
Okay, now that I told you the story of my token gay, I’ll give the straight guys some hotties. *snicker*
Yeah, that’s a dark haired Hilary Duff. Hard to believe, isn’t it?
There’s Keeley Hazell like I promised.
And a repeat of Liz Hurley for good measure. (For Dave, ya know. He’s dealing with a diet so we must show him some love.)
Oh, and I really can’t do this without at least one male hottie. Since he got such raves the last time I posted him… here’s Brandon Boyd.
BTW, I decided on a pen name, stole it from my favorite character at the Bar actually. If I ever get something accepted for publication, I will then build myself a real author website at LexValentine.com. For now, it points to Winterheart.com. I was really excited when I clicked the button to register the domain yesterday. Now, I really have to get cracking on my writing projects, which are listed on my WIP (works in progress) page at Winterheart.com.
Update on the knee… still swollen, but not as bad. Still sore and stiff. Gonna try to go to work. I have a feeling I won’t make it the whole day because the damn thing is bound to start swelling again, requiring a few hours elevation. I can walk, albeit rather stiff legged, so I’m off to the office.
Have a great humpday!
