DILF Weekend Edition: From Russia with DILF

новый президент Россия Дмитрий Медведев - Я думаю что он a DILF. (sorry, I don't know the word for DILF in Russian).

(Translation - I think that Russia's new president, Dimitry Medvedev, is a DILF, well by politician standards, right?)

DILF Wednesdays: Andrew Shue

Andrew Shue was a formative part of my development as a gay man. I still remember watching him on Melrose Place (stop laughing) as a young lad... I knew I liked the menz. Memories...

Oscars and Emu Eggs

By the weekend last week I was feeling sort of zombified, I (gasp!) didn’t do anything Friday night and slept in Saturday and Sunday which was so nice! I think Sean’s been a bit tired lately, too; we both have had a lot on our plates.

Sean reminded me that this weekend was the end of Restaurant Week in DC (doesn’t it feel like it’s always restaurant week, though?!) so to take advantage of it, I got us reservations Saturday night at Napoleon Bistrot, on Columbia Rd., for dinner. We both really liked it; it had great modern interpretations of French classics. Think Salade Nicoise and Crepe Suzettes. The only drawback is it’s a bit cramped, so it’s hard to have an intimate dinner (though not as loud and cramped as Bistrot “We Don’t Use Breadplates in France” Du Coin).

Sunday we spent half the day in bed, which is always nice. We went to an Oscar watching party at some of Sean’s friends. Before going there we stopped at the Whole Foods on Leesburg Pike and Sean pointed out to me emu eggs. Emus have big eggs, much like their cousin the ostrich. Except theirs are green! I couldn’t get over how alien they look! I wouldn’t begin to know how to use one, but they are fun to look at…

I know she’s been all over the news lately, and I wanted to avoid blogging about her, but I can’t help it. She fascinates me in the same way Dina Lohan does. It’s that whole you-can’t-help-but-look-at-a-car-accident thing. Only this is more like a derailed train carrying nitroglycerin, crashing in slow motion.

I can’t even imagine the pain of carrying 8 children. And I love how she’s like a white-trash version of Angelina Jolie. 8 more children and she’s a single mother on welfare. Lovesit! No, really, I think it's it's fabulous, don't think I wouldn't do the same thing.

PS- “Octomom” if you’re reading this: Let’s say I have this, um, friend, and he’s obsessed (mildly) with a silver-haired CNN anchor. We’ll call him Nanderson Nooper. So let’s say he was devising a scheme to “accidentally” have 8 of Nanderson’s children… what was the name of that fertility clinic you went you?

DILF Wednesdays: Jon Huntsman

I recently read about Utah's Republican governor speaking out in favor of gay civil unions (yes, you read that correctly... I know, right!). I know he's Republican and probably Mormon, but for this week his stance elevates him to DILF status because he's also easy on the eyes.

Valentine's Dinner In Pics

The lobsters when they arrived
"Chef Tom" in the kitchen

Coquilles St. Jacques

By the fireplace (only thing missing is the polar bear rug)

The lobsters were great, Sean also made asparagus and Coquilles St. Jacques (a meal full of legendary aphrodisiacs I now realize) as well as an amazing molten chocolate cake for desert. For dipping sauces "Chef Tom" also made green and red mojo sauces, a savory guava caramelized sauce (the recipes of which I won't post here until Sean and Margo patent them for their bottled sauce empire which is going to make me a very rich husband!).

Valentine's Day 2009: Whatta Man

I got beautiful flowers from Sean yesterday, and more awaits tonight... right now I have two lobsters living in the crisper drawer in a box of ice and wet newspaper for tonight. I had a friend in Nova Scotia, Canada manage sending those down to me, so we'll see how they tastes.

Anyway, in dedication to Sean: What a man! What a man! What a mighty good man! (they were playing this at Town last night - perhaps n honor of Valentine's Day?) Skip to minute 2:05 where she's laying on a polar bear run by the fireplace... that's so me!

Oh He's Just Being Drunky

First off, I have to post this awww-inducing photo from the hella crazy fires that are blazing across Australia (and what did Australia ever do to make me mad, you may wonder? I'll tell you what - Hugh Jackman won't return my calls!)

Let's see... I've been meaning to blog about this one for awhile: the feud of Faye Dunaway vs. "actress" and "singer" Disney-creation Hilary Duff. Duff has been cast in an upcoming remake of Bonnie and Clyde and Dunaway -w ho stared in the original asked, validly, "Couldn't they at least cast a real actress?" Ouch! Now Duff is talking smack back and saying her fans don't even know who Dunaway is.

Hilary, sit down for a moment, we need to talk. Have you ever seen Faye in Mommie Dearest? She'll eff you up! Hils, if I were you I would run home and hide any wire hangers. Scrub the bathroom, and make sure you clean under any flowerpots! She's not mad at you, she's mad at the dirt...

Oh, and I have to blog about the whole Chris Brown going all Drunky McDrunkerson (like my ex) and hitting Rhianna. I'm still in disbelief! I love Rhianna!

Violence is never the answer (Drunky, are you reading this?). Oh and Happ Valentine's Day ya'll!

The Three Witches Take Manhattan

I had such a great 4-day weekend. Well, Thursday was stressful setting up for an event, but everything from dinner onwards, from the Waldorf Astoria to the bar was fun (see photos below).

Sean and I took the train back on Friday (as I've mentioned in previous posts, I will never take a Chinatown deathmobile unless I am piss poor and fleeing a nuclear bomb). I think I might take Amtrak up to Toronto and Montreal next time I go up there, train rides are so much more pleasant than driving. And it was nice having Margo with us on the ride up.

Sunday Sean took me to a beautiful little place by where he used to live (when he lived in Maryland), Brookside Gardens. It was a beautiful warm day, in contrast to the 17 degrees when we were in Manhattan, and the gardens had a nice greenhouse, as nice as the Botanical Gardens in DC. A little gem I never would've known about if it hadn't been for Sean! I reccomend going if you're in the Silver Spring area.

The Spam Awards! This week's winner...

Every now and then in my email inbox I get some real gems, even more bizarre or funny than the usual Viagra offers or Nigerian scams. This is one I got recently I thought was particularly amusing. I always thought Scarlett Johannson's acting was a little robotic...

WARNING ! STOLEN BIOLOGICAL MATERIAL ! Human Cloning Prohibition Act of 2007! regarding Scarlett Johansson (actress)

Hello dear Ladies and Gentlemen!

I would like inform you that Scarlett Johansson (actress) actually is a clone from original person Scarlett Galabekian last name, who has nothing with acting career. That clone was created illegally by using stolen biological material. Original person is very nice (not d**n sexy),most important - CHRISTIAN young lady! I'll tell you more,those clones (it's not only one) made in GERMANY - world leader manufacturer of humans clones, it is in Ludwigshafen am Rhein, Rhineland-Palatinate, Mr. Helmut Kohl home town. You can not even imaging the scale of the cloning activity. But warning! Helmut Kohl clone staff strictly controlling all their clones (at least they trying) spreading around the world, they are very accurate with that, some of them are still NAZI type disciplined and mind controlled clones, so be careful get close with clones you will be controlled as well. Original person is not happy with those movies, images, video, rumors and etc. spreading on media in that way it would be really nice if we all will try slow down that ''actress'' career development, original Scarlett will really appreciated that. Please remember that original Scarlett's family did not authorize any activity with stolen biological materials, no matter what form it was created in it was stolen and it is stolen. It all need to be delivered to authorized personals control in Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Original Scarlett never was engaged, by the way!

Her close friend Serge G.

New York, New York

I'm very excited for this Thursday night for a gala dinner in Times Sq., New York that I'll be at with the other two witches, and Margo and Sean! Manhattan will never be the same! If you don't believe you'd better get superstitious!

Despite NYC being "cursed" - ie, a trip there always spelled relationship doom for me in the past, I think Sean and I have overcome so many obstacles nothing can stop us - not even Magnolia Bakery's cursed cupcakes!

Seriously, though, I'll be glad when the weekend is finally here!

Rocky Mountain High

"When it rains, it pours."

So I've been very busy lately with work, and then I got very sick and had to postpone a trip. I did eventually feel well enough to get to Denver on Friday afternoon for a conference there.

I had a good time there, except for the altitude sickness I got (which may have been made worse by already being dehydrated and getting over the flu). I've been to places in the Rockies before and don't think I ever got altitude sickness, but this time it really hit me.

Otherwise I had a great time in the Mile High City. I had forgotten there is a JR's in Denver. A colleague wanted to check it out, and I told them "I hate JR's back home, why on earth would I go to JR's here?!" I guess every city has to have a place for douchebags to go, I suppose.

Sean was nice enough to pick me up from the airport this afternoon. I'm off to the showers as airplanes always make me feel yucky!
