Daily Hottie – Shakira

November 24, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s music Monday at the Daily Hottie and we’re going to go with a little Latin flair today with Shakira.  She’s originally from Colombia and hit it big with Hips Don’t Lie back in 2005. She is an only child kinda of.  I say kind of because her father was previously married and had eight children from that marriage.  So Shakira has eight older half-siblings. In grade school she was always a performer, dancing on desks and tables at an early age.  Interestingly enough ...Click for More

In the white room with black curtains near the station. Black-roof country, no gold pavements, tired starlings. Silver horses run down moonbeams in your dark eyes. Dawn-light smiles on you leaving, my contentment. Cream It’s Thanksgiving week so I’m sure a lot of you are either barely working or not working at all.  That’s good, we all need to take it easy every now and again.  Of course, I’m still high on a Bears win setting up a big Thanksgiving day showdown with the ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Kate Beckinsale

November 21, 2014 // 0 Comments

Inspired by The Cure, today’s theme is It’s Friday and I’m in Love.  It’s hard to argue being in love with Kate Beckinsale. Kate comes to us from across the pond.  She was an only child and both her parent were actors.  She appeared on her first TV show when she was only 4. When she was 5 her dad died suddenly of a heart attack.  He was only 31 at the time, which let’s face it had to suck. So that at age 15 when she suffered a nervous breakdown and anorexia and ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Evangeline Lilly

November 20, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s television Thursday at the Daily Hottie and who better to feature than a chick from one of my all time favorite shows – Evangeline Lilly. If you’re looking for a troubled or interesting past you need to move on, she’s pretty much as clean as they come.  Born in Canada, she played soccer and was on student council in high school.  She grew up Christian and at 18 went on a three week mission trip to the Philippines. She was discovered by the Ford Modeling Agency ...Click for More

A pretty picture but the scenery is so loud, A face like heaven catching lighting in your nightgown, But back away from the water, babe, you might drown- The party isn’t over tonight (lighting in your nightgown) Panic! at the Disco     I had the hardest time this week trying to figure out a song and I’m not sure why. I blame coming back from vacation. Alas, back to work I go today, with the rest of you, and I’m not a fan of it. But at least it’s Thursday which ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Drew Barrymore

It’s Wildcard Wednesday where I can pick any hottie I want and today I’m going with Drew Barrymore. I tried to follow all of the famous actors in her family but it’s a long list on Wikipedia.  On top of that her god parents are Steven Spielberg and Sophia Loren.  Oh did I mention that she is the god mother of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Francis Bean. She’s had quite the life at age 39.  I guess that happens when you start hanging out at Studio 54 ...Click for More

And the walls kept tumbling down, in the city that we love. Great clouds roll over the hills bringing darkness from above. But if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like nothing changed at all? And if you close your eyes, does it almost feel like you’ve been here before? How am I gonna be an optimist about this? Bastille Alright, alright, alright we made it to Wednesday.  I’m always so excited to get to Wednesday as it means my time for ATW is done for a few days.  I know it ...Click for More

Daily Hottie – Jenny McCarthy

November 18, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s Trashy Tuesday here at the Daily Hottie.  Yesterday we had Chicago’s very own Liz Phair as the daily hottie so why not go with another Chicagoan in Jenny McCarthy. Born in a Chicago Suburb, she is the second of four daughters.  As a teen she attended Mother McAuley HS and was a cheerleader for Brother Rice HS (Mother McAuley was an all girls school so they cheered for the all boys HS). Couple of interesting facts.  1) Melissa McCarthy of Mike & Molly fame is her cousin ...Click for More

November 17, 2014 // 0 Comments

It’s Music Monday here at the Daily Hottie.  As we are all things Midwest around here it seemed to make a lot of sense to me to go with Chicago’s very own Liz Phair. While she wasn’t born here, she was raised in Winnetka and graduated New Trier High School in 1985.  She was involved in student government, was on the yearbook committee, and ran cross country.  In short, she was a normal kid. Her career was what being in the music business used to be like before American Idol ...Click for More

Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile myself because I love you, yes, I do. And when you give me that pretty little pout, it turns me inside out. There’s something about you, baby, I don’t know. Isn’t it amazing a man like me can feel this way, tell me how much longer, it could grow stronger every day. Oh, how much longer?
