O-Docker: Accomplished artist blah blah blah France blah blah Paris blah blah long walks along the Seine blah blah Sagittarius blah blah blah kinda short blah blah size doesn't matter, does it?
Me: actually I think we were mostly after eye candy.
O-Docker: All my life, I've been told that women care more about a man's mind, talents, and sense of humor.
And then the very next day, I've completely spaced out on the eye candy mission & am all a-burble over an actor who rescues his one-eyed equine co-star from the knacker's and an accomplished musician with a beautiful laugh & a commitment to children's literacy - and nary a pec or an ab or a lat to be be seen. @*!#$!!!!
Eye candy! Eye candy! Bronzed, bikini-clad BEEFCAAAAAAAAKE! Hunka-doodle-doo!
ok. I guess I feel better now. Thanks to David (Official Mermaid Wrangler of the good boat Valis for PacCup 2010) for the link to SailorJunkers, an exhaustive compendium of vintage cheesecake, beefcake, pinup girls, pulp covers & all sorts of nautically themed visually oddities where I found my leopardskinned swimmer here, along with dozens of other appropriate candidates (er, and some inappropriate ones too, definitely NSFW!)
