Guys With iPhones (Part 4)

Another submission, brought on by torchyboy's suggestion for taking a picture for "Show Pants Saturdays" on Twitter. And then he suggested that I put it on Guys With iPhones. And it didn't take them but half a day to post it on the site. I seriously love the site. It's just awesome. So many hot guys to look at! But anyway, here's my ugly photo:

I Love EXPRESS

So I love the clothes from Express. They're nice. They make me look nice. They're slightly expensive, but it's not like I shop there all the time, so I don't feel too bad when I do go shop there. Most of my dress shirts are from there, and I have a few sweaters and t-shirts from there too. They just have a good style and I like the way I look in them.

But more reason for me to like them... their hot models!! More specifically, Brazilian model Michael Camiloto. YUM!! He's so hot! If you follow me on Twitter, then you already know how I feel about him. HAHA. But he's just AMAZING. Here are some pics from the new February 2010 mini-catalog that was mailed to me yesterday. You be the judge:




Ok... I'm SO Gay..

HAHA, I can't deny it. I'm gay... because I'm SO into figure skating right now. It has rapidly become my latest hobby and probably one of my "phases" in which I pick up something and then drop it in a matter of weeks. HOWEVER, I'm hoping it's not just a phase and that I continue with it because I'm actually having lots of fun and I'm seeing results.

Last week, after watching the Men's Figure Skating on the Olympics, my friends and I were motivated to go ice skating ourselves. We found a night and went to the nearby rink and had TONS of fun. I hadn't been on the ice in years and it was great to just skate around. Before we left, we went on YouTube to learn how to do some simple jumps and spins. We actually got a few good pointers because we were able to do some tricks. They were UGLY.. but we did them!

After that night, I was hooked. I immediately went on youTube again and researched more. I looked up the ice rink's website and found that they offer classes. I've been in contact with the rink manager and he's going to give me a quick evaluation to see where I place in the classes. And then they're going to start in April. And they're relatively cheap. Actually a very good deal. I've also went online and bought my own pair of figure skates. :P I figured if I'm going to be going a lot, I'd rather have my own pair of skates. And they weren't that expensive! They're not the best because those can cost up to $500!! But I got a pair for $60 that are going to be just fine for me. I can't wait to skate on the ice with them next week.

I went again today with my friend, who I found out last week, used to be a trained figure skater! He stopped training years ago, but when he was there with me today, he looked so good! He taught me some technique and corrected me on my skating. He gave me some good pointers to help me. I learned how to do the backwards crossover... that's the thing that the figure skaters do when they skate backwards and are making a turn. That was my goal for today.. to learn how to do that. I had NO idea how to do it before, but now I can do it! Again, it looks sort of ugly and choppy, but HEY, I can do it and I just need more practice. I'm definitely bringing my friend along every time I go!

Anyway, here's a video of me doing those backward crossovers. :) My goal is to be able to do a double jump. I will die a happy man if I can have that under my belt.
And THAT is why I'm SOO gay.

I'm a Tramp

Last night, I was called for a photo shoot at work. Along with one of my friends, we re-enacted the pasta scene from Lady and the Tramp. She was dressed more classy while I was more casual... to go along with the Lady and the Tramp idea. Our clothes' color palette matched the fur color of the dogs and they dressed the set as closely as possible to the animated movie. We had a plate of spaghetti in front of us but we used a piece of string to put in our mouths for the actual shots.

They took a whole bunch of shots! I felt like I did a horrible job. I just don't know how to take any pictures that doesn't involve me smiling with a giant smile. I can't do subtle smiling.. or serious looks.. I'm just incapable of that. So I just hope I got lucky and they got a few good shots that they can use.

The photo shoot is for a new campaign that will be going in magazines and local newspapers. They say it'll hit the stands in the next couple of weeks. So I'm definitely going to be keeping my eyes open for it! It was a long night (10pm - 5am) but it was way fun. :)
