Christmas Came Early

I had a really rivoting (okay, maybe not "rivoting" but different) blog post in mind to write for today but then I got a little distracted but, really, wouldn't you?

People did an article on David Beckham and Christiano Ronaldo and this photo was the lead-in. So the completely entrancing helpful post will have to wait and you'll just have to make do with some serious eye candy instead.

Speaking of which, my friend Liz asked who was behind this blog operation of mine. I didn't know at the time whether Liz liked the blog (She does!) or if she thought it was total bollocks so I lied like hell. I decided, instead, to exploit her weaknesses and came up with what I now affectionately call "the dream team." No, not the 1992 men's Olympic basketball team but I think you'll agree, if you had to go to work with these individuals it would be a bit of a dream:

-David Beckham on fashion,
-Christiano Ronaldo on foreign affairs,
-Channing Tatum on all things entertainment and dance,
-Eric Bana on sports, and
-Taylor Lautner as the intern.

So..has Christmas come early for you? Any epiphanies, great articles, can't-put-down books, or just plain fun photos like this one that makes you stop and thank God for genetics "freaks" even if he won't make you one of them.


  1. omg. I'm going to see your dream team (and not even pick out Channing Tatum or Taylor Lautner like I want to) and raise you one Bradley Cooper on all things Philadelphia/keepin' it real and comic relief.

  2. Very enjoyable post, Sarah:)

  3. The Godfather, The Color Purple and Shawshank Redemption are all great examples of books not losing their translation into movies.

    Two of my favorites though are Brokeback Mountain. Annie Proulx's wistful short story, which has been brilliantly adapted and translated to celluloid with unusual sensitivity.


    The Cider House Rules, which captures John Irving's evocative novel with rare sensitivity, a tender and poignant drama stirs viewers' emotions as few films have.

    Love the blog - keep up the good work!

  4. Courtney's right. We need to hire Bradley Cooper and, upon further consideration, James Franco and Joseph Gordon-Levitt too. I think that should round the team out.
