Well, excuse me while I act all hormone-addled-teenagery, and post these pics of:
A Few Good Reasons To Visit Italy
Raul Bova: Popular actor and pin-up boy. You first noticed him in those GAP ads.
Then along came Under the Tuscan Sun (and you had a reason to be jealous of Diane Lane beyond her haircolor or her figure).
You sat through that ridiculous Alien Vs. Predator film for him (and pretended to be sacrificing in order to please your significant other), too. But did you know he's one of a handful (ahem) of men in Italy who puts out his own calendar? With lots of shots like the last few, here?
Aren't you glad you know, now?
Kim Rossi Stuart: Actor, director, producer. Yum. (And an inspiration for a character in one of my short stories, too.)
Samuele Bersani: Singer, songwriter, and possessor of a delightfully geeky smile. (And the inspiration for a character in my novella.)
I mean, look at that pic. A man. A bunny. He's all cuddly! The man, that is. Though the bunny is cuddly too, of course. And he's offering the soft underside of his neck. Nibblicious! (Again, I mean the man, not the bunny. I don't nibble bunnies. I feel sad when I see them in the grocery store, even. Bunnies, not men. Oh, forget it...)
Okay, I'm done, now. Of course, if/when I discover even more goodies, I'll be sure to keep you posted. Ciao for now!
