November Flavor of the Month: Rider Strong

For this month’s hunk, imma bring you back to the 90’s!

the truth is, ive been busy watching Boy Meets World reruns on youtube the past coupla weeks now and i just can’t get over how cute Rider Strong is!

he plays Shawn Hunter, Cory’s cooler bestfriend,, but as I watch more episodes, I can’t help but root for Shawn more. I tend to fall for the bad boys with a sensitive side, i know, i know.. so cliche, but WTH, i just can’t help it! he’s really cute!!

and once a gir obsesses this much about a boy, she does the most normal thing in this day and age.. she googles him!

i went across Rider’s wikipedia page and found out that he’s not very active in his acting career, doing the odd tv shows and indie film. i think it’s safe to assume that after he did BMW he focused more on his studies, and boy, was it worth it! not only did he finish college, he graduated magna cum laude in Columbia University, no less, and after that he even took up a master’s degree in fine arts in Bennington College. take about a boy with a good head on his shoulders (and an artistic one at that!) it’s safe to assume that both the right and left side of his brain are working fabulously!

don’t you think he’s such a sweetheart? and a hot one at that too! 🙂


September Flavor of the Month: Paul Child

Paul Child as played by Stanley Tucci in the movie Julie and Julia.

I just find it really sexy how Paul Child stood by his wife Julia in the movie (which is based on real people and off of Julia Child’s memoirs)

Paul’s wife had such a strong personality that most weak men would resent it or feel emasculated but not Paul. He loved his wife so much to support her through hat making and cooking lessons!

It is also incredible how much in love and in awe he is with his wife that he had no qualms about putting it into words and letteres to his comrades!

He was so supportive of julia that he paid her cordon blue lessons, built her a special kitchen counter top to accommodate her formidable height, took photographs for her cookbook, and basically just let her shine in her career at an era where women were not expected to work and have a career.

I especially loved how much he seemed to love her despite her shortcomings. (julia didnt even know how to boil an egg when they were newly married and He supported her despite her infertility.

He was also happy to live in his wife’s shadow even though he was quite a somebody himself. He’s a diplomat, apoet an artistic soul who taught art and philosophy in universities, and even a judo belter! He’s getting dreamier and dreamier in my book!
