Although the day isn’t over, I couldn’t resist sharing @largetony‘s tweet. Earlier today he tweeted, “So the unemployment rate in US has dropped to 5.3%. There is national healthcare. And marriage equality. I blame Obama.”
I blame him too Tony. I remember all too well what our country was like after 8 years of “leadership” from a Republican President before Obama won in 2008.
I love this graduating senior’s quote in her high school Yearbook. It is both snarky and right on the money (pardon the pun but I couldn’t resist).
It is about that time for my own personal P.S.A. to ask you tell your friends about my little corner of the Internet. You can follow my blog by subscribing and or like my facebook page at www.facebook.com/BosGuyblog.
For all you social media fans, I’m also active on Twitter @BosGuy and I am increasingly addicted to Instagram (so follow me) at BosGuyblog.
I don’t pay that much attention to how many followers I have on Twitter, but last week I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw that Taye Diggs started following me. I still think that it might have been a mistake on his part – although we both do share a love for Broadway musicals.
I’ve been obsessing over Taye Diggs ever since I saw late 90s movie How Stella Got Her Groove Back. In my opinion, this Hollywood / Broadway star has only become better looking and more interesting with age.
Chalk this post up to me bragging (and flirting just a bit in case Mr. Diggs ever sees this post). I know he doesn’t fancy men but that won’t stop me from fancying him.

Last week this image of Cindy Crawford created quite a stir on Twitter. I think Charlotte Wilder put it best when describing her reaction when she wrote, “Until last weekend, I thought of myself as the kind of woman who wasn’t affected by how the media portrays women. I thought I was too aware and too savvy to hold myself to standards of beauty that are unreal. Magazines Photoshop everybody and everything. Everyone knows that.”
I’m not posting this image to comment on how Cindy Crawford looks. I’m posting this picture because I think even
jaded savvy consumers like you and me are deluded if we think we have a healthy understanding of what a gorgeous woman like Cindy Crawford looks like as she ages (quite gracefully I might add).
I don’t begrudge anyone who wants to Photoshop their photos or engage in any kind of nip and tuck to help hide their years, but I do think that we would all be better off if we kept this image firmly in mind. Cindy Crawford is beautiful, but she isn’t 18 years old so let’s stop pretending that is an ideal one can maintain. Youth is precious because it is fleeting. If it was forever it wouldn’t be coveted.
