Hey, Liz Fichera and The Mojito Literary Society have started a really fun hop called First Gifts Blog Fest, in which bloggers tell their stories about first gifts received from a boyfriend, girlfriend, spouse, life partner, or whoever. (I went heavy on the whoever...as a matter of fact, I may have added that category all by myself.) If you've got a first gift story to tell, please hop on! This fest goes through Sunday, November 21.
This post was supposed to go in a whole 'nother direction, but yesterday's mail changed all that. It starts with a gift I bought for my son...that turned into a gift for me.
Baby boy turned thirteen this past Sunday, so I went to Best Buy last week and bought him the M-rated new release, Call of Duty: Black Ops. But my parenting skills are not the point. The point is that the check-out girl offered me a free six-month subscription to People magazine. I figured what the heck and took it.
Yesterday my first issue arrived.
It's the sexiest man alive issue.

I'll admit I'm not overly thrilled with the top pick, but the whole issue is full of men! Attractive, funny, charming men! It had been a long time since I'd shut my brain off for a few minutes and flipped through a magazine, but I'm so glad I did. The highlight for me was a surprise peek at Nathan Fillion's man cave, but really, the whole experience was pretty damned enjoyable. Thanks Best Buy girl.
CassaStar. I mean, even Rupert Grint got a bigger piece of real estate, for Merlin's sake. Don't worry, Chris baby, you can take up space on my blog any time. ;)
