You Almost Forget He’s Sort of a Douchebag

Jude Law and sons

When you see him with his kids. And aren’t they handsome?

Wow, Michael Hutchence is simply unstoppable!  Alec Baldwin tried valiantly to give him a run for his money, and almost succeeded in winning.  But, the operative word is almost, and almost doesn’t cut it here at Teeny Manolo.

So, on to another bad boy of the 80’s.  This actor was in a show that I loved in high school, and I would watch it religiously.  Ahhh, Moonlighting, you were such a good show…

Is Chivalry Dead? And Do Women Want it to Be?

Man opening door for woman


Yes, the title is a question because I don’t know what constitutes a true gentleman any more.

You see, I have explained and discussed the differences between girls and boys with the Munchkin, but never in a “girls are delicate flowers” type of way.  He obviously knows that there are physical differences and sometimes preferences toward dolls and such, but that’s where it pretty much ends. I’ve never told him to give girls any type of special treatment just because they are girls.  I’m a feminist like that.

So this past weekend at a family gathering, I heard my father say to my son, “You need to let Jenna pick which seat she wants to sit on, because, you know, she’s a girl.”

And my father meant that in the most gallant way possible, that old-school thought process that opens doors for ladies, pushes in their chairs, and things of that nature.

Well, I have to say my son resisted the notion that Jenna should get to pick something over him just because she is a girl, and I have to say that I sort of agree with him.

Now, if my father had simply said, “Jenna gets to pick first because she is your guest” which she was, that is an entirely different story.   But he didn’t, and the whole situation got me to thinking about how to deal with the whole chivalry thing.

So now I am torn. 

I really do want my son to be the kind of person that opens doors for ladies and pushes in his girlfriend’s chair when they go to a nice restaurant.

But how to do that without sending the message that girls are deserving of special treatment, which many feminists say ain’t so?

Talk about mixed messages.

Any thoughts?

Or am I just overthinking this whole thing?

Oh Michael Hutchence, your hotness is so far unmatched! You handily trounced one Mr. Adam Ant into New Wave oblivion. Bravo, sir, bravo!

All right, let’s get back to some actors in this competition. And listen, I’ve been saving some of the best 80’s men for last. Now, with this challenger, let’s try not to picture him as he is today, but rather, how he was back in 1988.

Which was yummy indeed.

CDF- Thank God It’s Friday

I don’t know about you, but this has been one loooong week.  I am happy that it is almost over, how about you?

As for my childhood crush, Simon Le Bon?  Well, to put it nicely, he got absolutely crushed by Michael Hutchence.  Sigh.

As I was considering the next contender, I was thinking about how much I’m enjoying the 80’s flashbacks, and decided to go for yet another lead singer.  He has sort of the same dark, sexy vibe as Michael, but yet did it with  much more, uh, androgynous flair.  He was the first man who wore that much make up that I still considered extremely attractive.

OMG! It’s Friday, finally! And even more OMG, we are putting our home up for sale today! Can you say “stress?”

So when I get stressed, I tend to regress back to the 80’s, where I was in love with all sorts of men, and specifically with today’s challenger. Michael Hutchence managed to rip the crown away from Mark Harmon, but can he stand up to a fellow 80’s lead singer?

Let’s see…

Mark Harmon is on a tear! I do think he is handsome, but he is sort of a “generic” handsome that I’ve never been that attracted to. But it doth seem like I am in the minority.

Today, I’ve got a challenger who is the antithesis of “generically handsome” in anyone’s book. In fact, he’s not really handsome at all, but man, is he hot.
