We know that men talk far less than women…We love going straight to the point….Calling a spade a spade….So what do men really mean when they say so and so?

David Zinczenko has a few examples of guy speak…. here’s one –

Guy Speak: Did you see the booty on that one?

Extensive and scientifically conducted research at a vast array of prestigious foundations and universities has revealed this shocking truth: Men love sex. And men actually love talking about sex, and naked bodies, and clothed bodies that would look great naked, and the top-five celebrities we occasionally fantasize about. But unlike many women–whose coworkers often know more about their sex lives than their husbands do–few men will ever utter a word about the woman they’re currently committed to. (One reason is that we know it’s hard to earn a woman’s trust and we don’t want to blow it. The other reason is that once a couple is committed, our buds just really don’t want to hear about it. Plus, we’re protective of the relationship.) Still, talking about hypothetical sexual situations or the lovely woman who just passed in front of us serves as a good way (albeit not the best) to release some testosterone.

Anna Nicole to be buried in the Bahamas

•February 23, 2007 • 1 Comment

Anna Nicole Smith is to be laid to rest in the Bahamas, where her late son, Daniel was also buried. This announcement came from her lawyer who was granted custody of her body by a judge after a tussle between her mother and her partner, Howard Stern. Her mother wanted her to be buried in her native Texas while Stern was for her burial in the Bahamas.

Now that the issue of where to lay her to rest has been resolved, next up is the paternity of Daniellyn. This should be determined by a second court hearing.

Men would claim to be rarely scared but I must admit that there are quite a number of things that I am scared of but I won’t be listing them here 🙂 .

According to David Zinczenko, there are 15 things men are scared of :

#15 Hair in the drain.
#14 Getting caught noticing another woman.
#13 Rejection.
#12 Super Nanny.
#11 Speedos.
#10 His dad’s death.
#9 Her tears.
#8 Being a lousy lover.
#7 Not being a god to his kids.
#6 Living paycheck to paycheck.
#5 Beautiful women.
#4 Getting naked.
#3 Tofurky.
#2 Not seeing his kids grow up.
# 1 Public humiliation.

Well, I will agree with  #1, 2, 8, 11, 13…

Liverpool defeat Barcelona…at the Nou Camp!

•February 22, 2007 • Leave a Comment

Goals from Craig Bellamy and John Arne Riise gave Liverpool a famous victory over Barca at the Nou camp. Deco gave the Catalans the lead with a header but the Merseysiders were too technically adept and held Barca to ransom with their technical play.

The 2nd leg comes up at Anfield in a fortnight and promises to be exciting as Liverpool head into the match with two away goals advantage. There’s still all to play for.

PS – English rivals, Chelsea, hold Porto to a 1-1 draw away.

United 1 – Lille 0!

A Ryan Giggs free kick (albeit, controversial!) was enough to put United in a vantage position ahead of the 2nd leg at Old Trafford in a fortnight.

It was a dreary match with a lot of spurned opportunities at taking the lead.

Britney’s gone bald!

Bald Britney

Britney Spears is now a baldie! She just went to a hair salon and voila!… Shaven and shorn Britney! Wow! What a look!

The mother of two, who has been (in)famously in the news recently for late-night partying, indecent exposure and drug and alcohol use, decided to go for the look because she said she was tired of everyone touching her (what does that have to do with her hair, i wonder). She also visited a tattoo parlour and got a few tattoos.

Well, whatever will she come up with next…

Shave ‘em off Britney
