Dashing down 7th Avenue, on a balmy drizzling evening, we caught a glimpse of the Empire State Building all decked out in the Christmas colors. And rather than break stride we snapped a Galaxy S4 pic to share with y’all and wish you and yours a very festive and merry holiday.
Stay tuned… We will soon get back to the celebrity grind.
Don’t forget to unwrap whats coming to you.
As a New Yorker, there are a few things that tourist’s consider must do’s while in NYC that we will never volunteer to do – for instance: Times Square Ball Drop – sure we once went to a rap party at a hotel on East 42nd Street which is within the vicinity, but being herded in throngs of barricades with folks back to back, HELL NO; Statue of Liberty – of course we have seen her while covering a premiere on the adjacent island, but that is as close as we want to be really; and the Thanksgiving Day Parade – something about parades just doesn’t sit well after you have attended a Catholic School that forced its student body to march every fucking parade imaginable.
Not much happening on this end… The drop in temps and the holiday have put a damper on chasing a photo. But we haven’t forgotten about y’all… Let us give thanks for you your viewership and continued support.
May you get stuffed nicely!
Its not often that we will sit and watch street performers – especially while on holiday – it generally isn’t our thing but what is one to do while you wait upon the arrival of a friend in the old center of Nice and a lot of hotties arrive and begin to stretch it out? Sit your ass down and watch them warm up is what you do. It’s that simple! (see video after the jump!) Read the rest of this entry »
Time for a holiday! As we enter the tale end of Summer we head across the Atlantic for a much needed respite. Don’t judge us, we find working for the man – as opposed to working on one – exhausting. Read the rest of this entry »
Twas the night before supposed merriment and we have to work but the thought of wishing you well we’ll never repent! Getting is good though giving can be great – but whatever your preference do it with zest!
Happy ho-ho-HO to one and all from your friend Native NYker at RT&M!
The holidays are hard for some folks. So here’s something to take your mind off the lackluster merriment that plagues your ho-ho-ho. Darren Criss – of Glee stardom – posing as a Santa (of sorts) shirtless, holding an over-sized candy-cane.
It put a spin on our very own. If for a moment.
Less is more, is our personal practice, but we ain’t kicking the Murphy gift-horse for sharing this teaser. Although we might’ve been a little more gleeful had this been an over-the-should showing some smooth posterior.
Coulda, shoulda, woulda been…
Merry Holidays to all and to all a long lick the candy cane!
“Do you think I could still find a beau?” asked our mommie & lady creator of a little engine that could with a laugh during our visit to what we term paradise – Nassau, Bahamas. ‘With that hair flowing, it’s a no brainer,” we responded.
Just look at the perfect blend in that do? We thought it highlights but au contraire! C’est au natural.
And with that vision of beauty that is our Mommie our brief Summer 2012 visit has fast come to a fast an end but as the saying goes – it’s truly better to have five minutes of wonderful than a whole hour of trifling.
OK; so we adjusted that slightly but y’all get the gist.
We give a whole big thanks to the Wayne & the folks at Bahama Divers for four awesome dives! The Sting Rays, giant Tortoise and Nurse Sharks while out on The Wall and The Blue Hole dives made for an exciting time down in the warm waters of The Bahamas! (Better video clip of dives coming up, b4 u guys start quipping about ‘where’s the turtle!)
Now, as if the above mentioned weren’t enuf to require us to get out a little blue pill (the ones that calm you, no the Jeremy Renner blue one) and make us mind out heart murmur some, we were joined by Tracie and Wayne – two of our real BFFs, not Paris Hilton BFFs – for din-din at Tracie’s house. Good times and good home cooked food! That’s icing. And dinner featured some kick-ass bread pudding for dessert – homemade!
Can’t beat that with a Sizzling Garden Kalik cocktail, we thinks. Nothing personal y’all.
Luv you guys. We will be back soon. Gotham here we come…
So it’s true. Our annual pilgrimage has ended. BA even delivered our lost luggage. How’s that for a message of ‘your done!’ But even though our holiday is now behind us, we have some keepsakes, aside from the fridge magnets, that will last us a long while and which we are happy to share. (And if they don’t last we will pop a pill & bring them back right quick!)
All things considered we can earnestly say we had an amazing time and were thrilled to visit with some of our dearest trans-Atlantic friends. True that our holiday abroad incurred a tad bit of drama during our Berlin impromptu visit… One we would have gladly done without, but what is a little drama when you have spent weeks on two amazing Mediterranean beaches – undisturbed! C’est pas mal.
Our new fave beach destination is The Rock in Gnenja, Malta! Picturesque doesn’t begin to describe it and one which we owe a debt of gratitude to our new friend Rob for directing us towards and laying out the path to nirvana. A path which includes a water-taxi.
We would also like to thank Rinus, Eric, Bert, Manu, Stephane and Omar for allowing us to visit and making our short stay so memorable. Nous aimez vous.
We’d love to share some of our other adventures with y’all, but we wont! We are trying to keep this posting totally PG-13.
We will leave you now so we can dutifully unpack our luggage – which traveled longer than we did – and try to get ourselves situated to the new time zone! (Damn hard one that is.)
As you read this we will be landing on the continent for a very welcomed holiday on the sunny beaches of the Mediterranean. We may, at times, take a moment to post a tidbit, or two, of our multi-week holiday stay abroad but we ain’t promising nothing other than to get a rocking tan!
We will think of y’all though – bank on that – and will miss sharing stuff during our absence – but not enough to cut it short.
Please feel free to email us and share any pressing matters and we will consider taking a respid from our time-out to post.
As the commercial declares… See you in September… See you when the summer’s through. You will know I’m back should you spot someone in tears at the airport mid-sept!
