Women have a problem with their body image, we are told over and over. But a little study showed that men are just as self-conscious as women about their body shape. I have always been in favor of equality; sharing minor traumas seems only right therefore. In the end, though, it comes down to making the best of what you have.
You stuffed yourself over Christmas with every kind of food that would add handles to your perfect body line. Still gravid from Christmas dinner, you piled it on again on Boxing Day. Then you drank yourself stupid on New Year. Now you face the choice of either stuffing your face through Easter, or to start thinking about taking off your shirt when the warm weather will come again shortly after that. So what is it going to be?
When I decided that I would write about this TV show of +Tom Daley's, I expected it to be nothing more than a good excuse to write a bit more about him and to have an even better excuse to post some pics of him. Well, I got a positive surprise by the show as such.
After last year's Harry Judd of +McFly fame in +Strictly Come Dancing (what the Americans call +Dancing with the Stars), this year we get Luke Campbell as an eye candy in Dancing on Ice. It is a hot and cold combination to behold. And I do think that he has a chance to be in it to win it, as boxers are such graceful movers (if you haven't been into boxing, then you should). And boxers don't come much sexier than Luke Campbell, too.
There is not much reason for me to write about +Tom Daley. He's such a good boy. He never gets into the dirty pages of the tabloids. But he does look good undressed. The less he is wearing, the sexier he appears. So the reason for this article is just because I enjoyed his saucy strip for +BBC Children in Need. Call it a Pudsey Bear strip, if you want.
Do you enjoy +Carly Rae Jepsen's video Call Me Maybe as much as I do? I was first drooling and then laughing like an idiot the first time I saw it. The video becomes that much more funny when you know that there are stories to back it up. And Holden Nowell is worth watching no matter what.
I know that most of you want to misunderstand me. But then there are sports and there are sports. I am sure bed sport counts for fitness much more than any other, at least it keeps your minds active. You can lose as many calories and use as many or more muscles than with any other sport. I mean, you just have to look at the pictures to see how well it works.
Do you think sport is exciting? I do. Usually for the sport as such, but sometimes for the guys that are competing in it. And some sports I find exciting to compete in. That is one side. And then there are the guys who find their sport extremely exciting like some wrestlers. They find their sport so exciting, in fact, that it shows. And then some.
It's magic. October comes and a new series of Merlin appears on screen. The success of a well known story broken into bite size bits and staffed with over-pretty actors and actresses breeds sequel after sequel. The magic of it is that just about everyone has some idea how the general story runs. Missed an episode? Not that important you'll still be able to follow what is going on based on what you know.
If you think +Tom Daley is sexy, then maybe you would like to take a good look at his teammates in Britain's diving team. Preparing for the London 2012 Olympic Games in Australia, they made a funny video. And they managed very well to show off all their muscles and other interesting parts, too.
In the United Kingdom, your business is made when you receive a Royal warrant. Warrants are granted by +Queen Elizabeth II, the Duke of Edinburgh and the Prince of Wales. The warrants accredit your business as a regular supplier to the Royal courts and attest the quality standard of your products and service.
+Novak Djokovic and +Rafael Nadal played an epic final in Melbourne's +Australian Open to establish the pecking order in men's tennis. In the longest grand slam final ever played, both players had their ups and downs until +Novak Djokovic established who has the longer stick. Beating +Rafael Nadal over five long sets, he defended his title from the previous year.
Australia's +Bernard Tomic was the featured teen boy in +Roger Federer's jubilee match. With 1,000 matches played in the ATP since 1998 when he entered the tennis circus as an excitable teen, Roger may not be the record holder but it is an impressive figure. At the Australian open, Roger was playing the jubilee match against Bernard Tomic, an excitable young teen playing for Australia.
Zac Efron has reinvented himself. Or he has reinvented his body. The slim dancing teen has become Hulk Hogan while we were looking somewhere else. Nothing left of the young boy charm of Troy Bolton, and mothers should think twice to describe him as favorite son-in-law now. He now looks like the perfect sin-in-law for boys and girls (and mums and dads).
With his twenty years, Louis Tomlinson is the doyen of +One Direction (or Wand Erection as some twitterati call them). His tweets, should you read them, are more revealing than any live blog available. I am not sure that this was intended by the management. Either they forgot to tell him that they would write his tweets, or the person who does write it for him has a unique sense of humor (well, not completely unique, I share it and I am not the writer).
The Internet was awash with the cover of People's Magazine showing Taylor Lautner (clothed) and the headline about his coming out. Many fell for it. Those that were caught in the scam sensation were definitely not People's reader. I can't remember it ever appearing on a Saturday as this cover purported to do. And special double issues appear twice a year in summer and at the end of the year; for mid summer it is a bit cold right now, and the end of the year is usually on the other side of New Year's Day. That is at least how I understand it.
