Hot, Hot, Hot

As I've been reading your comments from the last couple days -- and please forgive my lack of new blog posts, we've got a bunch of stuff goin crazy here -- I noticed you've started talking about where you're going for summer vacation, or where you've been.

Some of you've brought up St. Maarte
n, a pretty little island I visited when I was in my early 20s, a place where I actually frolicked upon a nude beach. Now, that's no big to Europeans and stuff, but it was pretty out-of-the-ordinary for small-town (at the time) me.

It was so awesome, and I totally get why folks do it, though these days I wouldn't inflict my nude self on anyone except the poor guy stuck with me.
So it got me thinkin -- that and the fact I got a new car last week and so did Amyskf -- if you coul
d grab a hot guy, toss him in a hot dream car, and drive all the way to an exotic vacation spot...who would the guy be, what kind of car, and which vaykay destination?
Encore! I think you can guess where I'd go, what we'd be drivin (the sweet little Alpha Romeo), and who I'd be takin with me. I don't know his name or whether he speaks English. God, I love dream vacations... "Um, Giancarlo -- I'll just call you that -- do you mind wrapping up in that flag before you sit on my nice new leather seats, bello? Grazie mille."

Matthew McConnaughey

A Mercedes sedan (we'd only get to drive as far as the airport cause you can't drive to my vaykay spot)

St. Maarten sounds good. :-)

Playground Monitor said...

Oh... I forgot something. I saw a cute T-shirt at the mall today and thought of you. The front read "Everybody Loves an Italian Girl" and it had little hearts around the slogan.

Kati said...

He looks kinda like Jason Priestly, that guy.

Dream vacay? It would be me and George (Clooney) at his villa on Lake Como in Italy. We'd be toodling around in my white convertible Audi A4. Although with George as a boyfriend, I could probably drive something more exotic.

I'm off to the beach for the weekend, Bellas. Have a fantastic weekend, keep my spot warm!


Cinthia Hamer said...

Ya know, for about two and a half seconds, that fantasy sounded pretty doggoned good...then my brain kicked in and I thought "WHAT IF"...what if the hot guy turns into a toad every time he opens his mouth(hey, I've seen it happen!)

I guess what I'm saying is, my "hot guy" is none other than Himself sitting about 3 feet away, even if right now he's completely ignoring me while he plays Internet poker.

But as far as the dream car--I've always lusted after Rollers. Complete luxury...ahhh...

So, in my pretty white Roller, my hot Italian lover and I would make our elegant way to the Amalfi Coast, where we'd blissfully idle away the warm days and nights in our villa on the shores of the Mediterranean.

Julie in Ohio said...

MK-- Have a great weekend. Don't forget the sunscreen. :o)

My current dream is Jude Law in a Mini-Coop convertible driving down a coastal road in Italy at sunset in the spring.

Julie in Ohio said...

Ireland in the summer sounds pretty good, too.

Vivi Anna said...

Mmm, just one guy???

Okay, how about Gerard Butler, in a Dodge Viper driving around the French Riviera..

That would be my ultimate dream vacation.

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Ah, Bellas, we love us some European vacations, don' we? Gerard's looking good these days, Vivs (and I agree w/ you about Eve's book. I'm feeling pretty good about my ability to pick em now that you say you liked it, too, cause you dig that stuff to begin with).

Jules, you're on a real Jude L kick arent' you? I had no idea you were an Italian vacation dreamer, too.

I'm with you, Cinthia! Italian coast, Italian lover...mmmm...but it's a fantasy, so do what I do: have him not speak English and resist the urge to have the fantasy crash/burn. If that starts, just add in his best friend, who happens to be a rugby player. See how nicely that works? Again, if they're gonna strip down, remember to protect the seats of that Rolls.

Play, thanks for thinking of me! I'm still dying to get us shirts that say "bella." And, really, is there any other kind of car than a Benz for fantasies? WEll, except for ARs, Aston Martins, Jags, mini coops, audis...

MK, have a great week-end at the beach. We have to say "week-end" like the Brits cause we're all talkin European vacation right now.

Hey! Where's Portia? Wonder what her fantasy boy/car/destination would be. Bet she's sleepin off that all-day writing binge she had last week. Is himself still at the WWII trip?

Ooo, I just love the pretty Italian boy in this piccie. Where were these boys when I was single? Not like I wouldn't have been scared to death of them.

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

And Vivs, you, my Bella, may always cart along as many beaux as you like. As long as you describe in great detail the deli combinations. :)

Portia Da Costa said...

I'm here! I'm here!

Obviously, I'd be with Vincenzo... and the wheels would be a cherry red Ferrari 250GTO and we'd be heading for Paris, then Monaco, then Milan, then Florence, then Rome. I'm not really a beach babe, so a road trip to some beautiful, sexy cities with the big guy would be my dream vacation. After all, there would be luxurious hotels with wide soft beds wherever we went... ;)

Shia Lebeouf

Convertable Porche


have you guys seen Transformers?

Portia Da Costa said...

Oh crikey, yes, Venice too!!! Thanks for reminding me, Judy! :)

Of course we'd have to garage the Ferrari on the mainland for the duration and then travel by vaporetto and romantic gondola...

Mmmmm... I'm picturing a gondola that can be enclosed for privacy when required. The gondolier would have to be a damn good waterman to handle all the rocking... know what I mean? LOL!

Amie Stuart said...

Judy....Transformers Rocks!!!

Ok seriously....Gary Allan, a 69 Camaro SS convertible (bec. I am a total slut for muscle cars) and a beach...any beach...Hawaii, St. Thomas I'm not picky.

Portia Da Costa said...

Hey, I just posted a piccie of the dream car and the dream man in it, over at my blog!

I'd take my very own hot, over the top, fine as hell!--Colonel in the Army, alpha man (aka, Mr. Kimberly Kaye Terry) with me as we traveled in a custom blown, tricked out 18wheeler (which would turn into a 50ft alien robot from another planet) into some remote, hot, sandy unknown location...and I'd let my man do WHATEVAH naughty thing he wanted to do to me on the hood of said, tricked out 18wheeler! Sigh...just saw transformers. :D

Cinthia Hamer said...

Good morning, Bellas~~

Oooh, Michelle, I LOVE the idea of "Bella" T-shirts!!! Can I get your email addy? Our GRW Prez has a connection to get scrumptious rhinestone T's.

Now, for that fantasy...can't speak English, huh? How about Raul Bova (Under The Tuscan Sun)???

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Buongiorno, Bellas! And a lovely day it is here in the Midwest. I'm a little nervous this am, cause my kids are actually flying to my in-laws by themselves. You know, on one of the airline-assisted deals?

My fil was going to visit to help watch the kids next week when Dave/I travel various days. But he's a little under the weather -- and so's my mom, and we've no relatives nearby -- so we're having the kids fly there. I am, so to speak, a bit conflicted about the whole thing. But it all came down at the last minute, and I don't need to tell you what it would have cost to fly out with them, fly back here or on to business destinations, RWA, etc., then back again early next week to pick em up.

So I'm cheering myself by reading your naughty little car fantasies and -- may I say -- I saw "Transformers" and it flippin ROCKS!

I'd been dying to see it -- I figure Josh Duhamel was due reward for all those little frikkin Transformers I stepped on and picked up, and tried to manipulate when my son was little. Of course, sitting next to my kids, I felt a little weird cause all I could think of when JD was on-cam was "I've seen you nude!" Well, not in person, but, you know, on the Inet.

Did you know he dates the lead singer from Black Eyed Peas?

Anywayz, I can't wait to see the movie again, although I can imagine I'm not the target audience, which would be, I'm guessin, 15 year old nerdy boys. Not that there's anything wrong with that; I'm raising my son to hang with the best of em, poor kid.

So, yeah, I'm with you, Kimberly. And I really like reading on your profile that you're totally positive. Bet that works out pretty well for you. :)

Judy: 'nuff said, Bella.

Portia, Portia, Portia...Yes! Yes! Yes! I'm heading to Italia in early October with my Italiano, but we haven't decided on Venice yet, just Rome and Florence. We'll only be there a week.

amie... great car; great fantasy!

So, cinthia, sorry. I didn't realize my email wasn't visible here. Nor did I realize my age was listed as 251.

That nude beach in St. Maarten sounds real good. And from the photos I've seen of you, you shouldn't worry about being on a nude beach. It's all about the freedom, not your waist size or whether you have some stretch marks or scars. I go to a nudist resort on a regular basis and it's the only place I've been where people actually look you in the eye to talk with you. Once you've peeled away the veneer of clothing, you get down to real honest social interaction.

I'm 2 dress sizes larger than I was 2 years ago but that hasn't stopped me from going and getting my all-over tan. I've rubbed elbows with a Hollywood producer, the chef at a major restaurant, doctors, lawyers, a music industry rep, housewives, truck drivers and retired folks. Young and old, big and small, all ethnicities. It's just about the freedom of no clothing and enjoying nature in the same state you were born in.

I can hear all of you saying "I couldn't do that!" I said that too about 7 years ago and my husband asked me to visit a resort with the understanding I could leave at any time. I told him I'd go and when I got there I was naturally hesitant. But once I got by the pool and no one stared it was great. The people were among the nicest I've ever met. They didn't care about my hysterectomy scar or that my boobs sag or that my thighs jiggle. They were much more concerned about whether I played cards or threw darts.

And there's just no better feeling in the world than swimming without a sticky spandex suit. Obviously I have to wear a suit at public pools, but all the while I'm thinking "I can't wait to get this damn thing off!"

And Giancarlo, were he a nudist, would definitely sit on that flag in your car. The #1 rule of nudist etiquette is to always carry a towel with you and sit on it. ALWAYS.

ev said...

Michelle- I believe JD and Fergie are living together if not engaged finally.

Can I have the Holy Trinity instead of just one of them??

On the nude beachs in St. Maarten's?? (we were there 2 years ago)

In a Ferrari??

If not, I will just take george.

Kimberly Kaye Terry said...

Oh, I read the blog article about Kenyon and posted something that didn't show :( Anyway, it was a small comment. First, I came by after my vivacious friend, Vivi shared the link with me, to this cool blog :)

Also, I wanted to say, I think MILF stands for "Mother I Love To F*ck" The naughty chick in me tends to tends to know stuff like this ::blush::


Vivi Anna said...

Hey my Kimmilicious is in the house!! hey sugah!!

Unknown said...

I would have to be in a cute little convertible Jag driving down the coast. It really doesn’t matter which coast to me as long as it’s sunny and warm. As for the man sitting next to me I don’t know who he is yet. It one of those things where I can picture him but I can’t really give him a face yet. It’s weird but I feel like I just haven’t meet him yet.
And on a side note I read Portia’s entertaining Mr. Stone and Continuum yesterday and they were awesome. I can’t wait for Suite Seventeen to come out in the states so I can read some more about Mr. Stone.
I hope everyone had an amazing fourth and that they have an even better weekend.

Portia Da Costa said...

Hey, Leeann, I'm so glad you enjoyed the books! :)

S17 is due out in the US on 7 Aug, so not long now.

Keira Soleore said...

MK: Hope you're having tons upon tons of fun! We look forward to hearing your stories when you return.

National is just three days away. Omigod! I'm so excited! I'm really looking forward to meeting you in person, Michelle.

Vivi: With Butler and a Viper, I wouldn't care where the vacation was. :)

I love me a mini coop, and I can't wait till the day I can unload my people mover and get me a two-door coop.

Michelle: How did the kiddies do on the their first flight alone? I bet they had a ton of fun.

Are you going to be having any promo stuff for your new site at the Conference? I'd love to wear (and advertise) a button/pin/bookmark/sticker.

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

ev!!!!! Welcome back, Bella! You must have been restin up from your vacation. Hope it was great. Did you get to do a lot of reading?

Keira, unfortunately, I have nothing this year, but I will definitely have something next, and hopefully before.

Welcome, Kimberly! Any friend of Vivi's is, of course, a friend of ours. And as such we expect you to be a little trashy. So please, don't disappoint us, ok? Did you notice how one of the Bellas came up with FILFy guys? Fathers I'd like to... Or DILFs, of course.

Thank you ,Anny, for that inspirational discussion on nudists. I am so jealous; I'd love to be a nudist. I can imagine how freeing it would be. And usually, I'm all, love your body no matter the shape, age, etc., but my money is nowhere near my mouth on the whole nudist thing, ya know? But I really would add it to the list of things I'd like to do... Maybe in my 50s...

Portia!!!! Please, give us more Clever Bobby! Can't you do a prequel, like when he was in his 20s or something?

Michelle Buonfiglio said...

Oh, and thanks for asking, keira. My kids did great -- what a relief. My son apparently can't wait to do it again next week when they come home. My in-laws are so happy to see them again, twice in the last month now, when normally they don't get to see them often cause of the distance. And my son who was all "oh, how am I gonna make a whole week w/out seeing you mumma," was on the phone after about 30 seconds, all, "um, I gotta go, don't you wanna talk to gam-gam some more?"

But I am glad they did great - my daughter's a champ and always goes with the flow. All it took to make her feel good about the flight was a couple dollars to buy Pringles on the flight. :)

Portia Da Costa said...

The Adventures of Bobby Stone as a Young Man?

Now there's a thought... I must say, the idea had never occurred to me, but now you've put the seed in my mind, Michelle... who knows what might happen?

As Bobby is supposed to be in his forties now, it'd mean drawing on my memories of life in the 80s to tell stories of him as a twenty-something...

It'd be fun project... :)

ev said...

Michelle- vacation was good, until we were pulled over by cops and had guns pointed at us.

The day after we got home I ended up in the ER.

I am exhausted.

On the positive side, I have seen the new HP....

Kimberly Kaye Terry said...

Thank you for the welcome, Michelle. I think I'm having issues with blogger, I tried to post and something ugly happend. And thank you for giving me the okay to be a bit trashy every once in a while. Whew. It's kinda hard for me to keep my freaky on the sneaky ;)

And a bit, wet, sloppy, totally lesbian kiss to my bud, Vivi for sharing and sending me the link to this blog with me :D

Stacy~ said...

Oh fun topic! I'd say a nice, air-conditioned limo with Clive Owen giving me a massage and Josh Bernstein feeding me chocolate covered strawberries, and Nathan just sitting there looking pretty...and I don't care where we are ;)

Keira Soleore said...

Michelle, it's good to read that your kids did so well. An adventure followed by pampering--what an irresistible combination for them.

If you don't have any promo stuff, then I'll just continue doing what I've been doing so far: Talk--about you and "MichelleB is going to be in Dallas with cameras rolling." "Have you seen MichelleB's fabulous interview with the Jackie?" etc. etc.

My fantasy would be James Purefoy and I either in the Cotswalds or on the Island of Capri in Italy, tooling around on a Vespa, eating delicious food, and making love many times a day.
