Your Afternoon Man: Matthew Lewis


Can we ease your re-entry into the work week with some Hot Neville?

Audi Polo Challenge - Day Two

I thought so.

"Me Before You" - European film Premiere

HELLO. (I am unsure as to what is happening vis a vis his lack of scuff on his chin as compared to the rest of his lower face and I DON’T EVEN CARE.)

Hot Neville is also in Fault this month — in the interview, he is HORRIFIED by the idea that people might fancy him; it’s quite cute – and you probably want to see the outtakes from his photo shoot. I sadly must inform you that he IS fully clothed. It’s still worth your eyeballs:

What the Fug: Eurovision 2016 Grand Final


BETTER LATE THAN NEVER. I hope.

So, I’ve learned my lesson about buying Hamilton tickets without checking to see when Eurovision is. Ergo, I was in the other room where it happens roundabout when THIS room was happening. I couldn’t be at my computer to stream it, I forgot to set my DVR for the Logo airing, and then all the clips on YouTube and Eurovision’s site got blocked for the U.S. (which I think is because it was actually on TV here). I finally watched it through Logo’s site, but… y’all, it was a process. But I’m doing it now, and if you want to come on this ride with me, I welcome you. It will include: words (and WORDS), capes, jumpsuits, a trampoline, a massive clock, some twigs, a sapling, and Germany coming in last. Again.

Missing in action: some of the performers I didn’t have anything to say about, for whatever reason, and also fire. WHERE IS THE FIRE? It’s just not Eurovision if you’re not mildly concerned all the pyrotechnics will accidentally light all the boozers aflame.

There was ALSO scoring drama — namely, Russia is REAL PISSED that Ukraine won.

It’s challenging to be mad at this. But Russia always has its reasons. Let’s dive into them, shall we?

GFY Giveaway: The Year We Turned Forty by Liz Fenton and Lisa Steinke


And the giveaways continue! Don’t you need something juicy to read by your pool this summer? (In my mind, you all have a fantastic pool at your disposal.)

the-year-we-turned-40-2

THE PRIZE:  This week, we’re giving away one copy of The Year We Turned Forty! (I love supporting other female writing partnerships.) Let’s flip over the book and see what it tells us:

If you could repeat one year of your life, what would you do differently? This heartwarming and hilarious novel from the authors of The Status of All Things and Your Perfect Life features three best friends who get the chance to return to the year they turned forty—the year that altered all of their lives, in ways big and small—and also get the opportunity to change their future.

Jessie loves her son Lucas more than anything, but it tears her up inside that he was conceived in an affair that ended her marriage to a man she still loves, a man who just told her he’s getting remarried. This time around, she’s determined to bury the secret of Lucas’ paternity, and to repair the fissures that sent her wandering the first time.

Gabriela regrets that she wasted her most fertile years in hot pursuit of a publishing career. Yes, she’s one of the biggest authors in the world, but maybe what she really wanted to create was a family. With a chance to do it again, she’s focused on convincing her husband, Colin, to give her the baby she desires.

Claire is the only one who has made peace with her past: her twenty-two year old daughter, Emily, is finally on track after the turmoil of adolescence, and she’s recently gotten engaged, with the two carat diamond on her finger to prove it. But if she’s being honest, Claire still fantasizes about her own missed opportunities: a chance to bond with her mother before it was too late, and the possibility of preventing her daughter from years of anguish. Plus, there’s the man who got away—the man who may have been her one true love.

But it doesn’t take long for all three women to learn that re-living a life and making different decisions only leads to new problems and consequences—and that the mistakes they made may, in fact, have been the best choices of all…

THE TASK:  As usual, I’m going to pick our winners by random. But to keep it interesting, please tell us which birthday was your favorite (it doesn’t have to be your own; it can be a birthday you arranged for another person, or even a fictional birthday that you treasure).

THE RULES: All entries must be posted in the comments of this post by 9 p.m. Pacific time on Friday.  FYI, if this is the first time you’ve commented here, the system will automatically kick you into comment moderation, but don’t worry, I will rescue you. (Prizing courtesy of the publisher; open to residents of the US and Canada only. Thank you!)

Fugs and Fabs: Gigi Hadid


fugs-and-pieces

It has recently come to my attention that Gigi wears a wide variety of trousers. I don’t like all of them, but I want to applaud anyone this committed to the quest for the unusual pant. We’re ALWAYS telling people to wear them, after all.

Fugs and Fabs: Paleyfest’s Evening With Orange Is The New Black


I don’t think PaleyFest required an adherence to a black-and-white dress code, but I could be wrong.
