I had decided at the start that I was going to reduce the level of smut in my blog because I was a bit concerned with some of the attention I was getting. There are definitely times when I find rude stuff funny but I still don’t want to end up making friends with some insane nymphomaniac. No offense nymphos – I’m sure there are people out there that love you.
That being said, today, I started watching The Night Manager which stars Hollywood and British heartthrob Tom Hiddleston and House himself Hugh Laurie. And I went into it with an open mind even though I didn’t really know what to expect besides hearing that “Hiddleston was so good that should be the next Bond”. But yeah, I know all the fan girls out there literally want him in anything so I didn’t take that much notice.
Anyway, watching part of it, my thoughts are that the show started off slow but did pick up somewhat over time. However, what stood out for me the most was that Hiddleston had quite a few sex scenes – much more than I am used to seeing anyway. And I get why girls like him. He’s well groomed, tall, and has the type of accent that makes all the cats crave but that still doesn’t make seeing him in sex scenes seem normal. And while I should stress I haven’t seen it all yet, there was one seen that struck me as being the quite..short. See below.
In addition to making an ass of himself, I was surprised to see Hiddleston “finish up” in such a quick time. And sure, while many would argue that this gives a sense of realism, others might laugh at the time it took (less than a minute). Personally, I didn’t see the point of this scene and I don’t really see it as sexy or with point. I guess all it really did was get young women to tune in to see their favourite British eye candy’s butt.
That’s all from me.
Okay so I am going to share with you one of my daily rituals. Being English (as well as being located in England) I am unable to watch such great shows such as The Colbert Report, The Daily Show with Trevor Noah or Late Night with Seth Meyers LIVE. I love these shows because they are witty, topical and also focus on important daily issues. It’s not something we get in abundance in the UK; I’m not sure why but I think the British can no longer do political satire or comedy shows about current affairs – maybe it’s too depressing?
But anyway, every day when I get up, one of the first things I do is go onto YouTube and search for clips from the previous nights shows. It’s always great viewing watching what’s going on in the United States, especially considering it is about to inaugurate potentially the most divisive and controversial president in sometime. Given that George W Bush managed to somehow win the US election in 2000 in the way that he did and yet this bloke is more controversial is amazingly telling.
For those who have followed the US Election and everything since, they will be familiar with Kellyanne Conway, who is Mr Trump’s campaign manager and all around guru. She fits the bill for Trump in so many ways. She’s blonde. She’s female. And she’s a shrewd. And regardless of what you think about the Donald, you have to say that Conway has done an amazing job at spinning the news of a man that admitted to sexually assaulting women and who refuses to release his tax returns and still somehow makes President. A lesser campaign manager could have crumbled.
This morning, I was rather intrigued to find that the previous night, Ms Conway had appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers, who is and has been firmly in the democratic corner throughout the election and post-election days. And considering the media has been rife with the rumours of Trump’s relationship with the Russians, surely she would not want to be doing that show at that particular time. But she did. Though that isn’t the reason I was shocked…
The reason I was shocked is because Kellyanne Conway told Seth Meyers that she was in her forties. What? REALLY? I really don’t mean to be cruel when I say this but she doesn’t look like a woman in her 40s. I did a quick search online and found out that she was 49 which blows my mind when you think that Megyn Kelly is 46! And all I could think was – is that what working for Donald Trump does to you? If so, you have to feel sorry for the next batch of interns working in the White House. They’ll go in at 21 and come out looking 40. Then again, Trump would argue that that isn’t the worst thing to happen to an intern in the Oval Office.
The interview itself is quite interesting, mainly because Seth Meyers does his best to prevent Conway from detouring with every question, which she is the master of. She also seems somewhat more flirty than usual.

I have always wondered about the phenomenon that was Sex and the City. After all, it seemed to be around in what seems like forever throughout my adolescence and early adulthood. I’m not going to pretend that my initial fascination was innocent. I was a teenager, The show had “sex” in the title and the opening video had Sarah Jessica Parker’s nipples protruding from her top. Yep, I was your average teenager. I probably also had at least one sexual fantasy at some point about Ms Parker and Kristin Davis (she was pretty hot too). I’m sorry about the other two, it’s nothing personal but Cynthia Nixon was just not my type and I’m pretty sure Kim Cattral would scare the crap out of me. She’s a little to domineering for my style – I’d probably be intimidated. Aside from that, I don’t really know too much about it aside from the scenes of a sexual nature and the fact that there was a character called “Mr Big”. To that I say, lucky for he who is called that. For everyone else, there’s always surgery ha ha. I kid.
Anyway, I recently saw a deal that advertised the entire TV collection as being £35 on digital which is roughly $50. I’m assuming this doesn’t include the movies. That being said, I’ve already party of the movie and had the misfortune of seeing won swarthy Latin bloke fully nude. That really didn’t help my dinner go down that evening, I can tell you.
So as a guy, would I like it? Would it be an eye opening and worthwhile experience into the female psyche? Or is it just fantasy tosh for girls that involves plenty of talk about orgasms, shoes, bags and boy drama? I’m interested to know.
Any feedback would be appreciated as I’m intrigued to find out just exactly what all the girls around that time were so into.
