Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
I would like to address the suggestion that I have some kind of Oligarch fetish.  First off, I'm a bloody pinko commie.  Wealth kinda gives me the creeps.  It's a turn off.  I think a man's attractiveness is in direct relation to his poverty.  Well, to a point.  Look at Misha.  When he was rich, he looked like a used car salesman.  Now he is in the slammer and Putin stole his company, and he's devastatingly handsome.  Secondly, if I have a thing for Russians, it's not because they are Oligarchs, but because they are Russian.  For example, they speak the sexiest language on earth.  Have you seen A Fish Called Wanda, where John Cleese starts speaking Russian and Jamie Lee Curtis goes insane?  Exactly.  I assume you didn't see the episode of SATC where Aleksandr is trying to get Carrie to say his name correctly.  "Alek,Sandr..."  And they can read.  And they've got that bad guy that's not good for you thing going on.  Putin?  He's a hooligan turned spy turned dictator.  Classic Mr. Wrong.  Complete with nice biceps and cocky attitude...  

Anyway, all of that's beside the point.  I don't understand why ceebs has been going out of his way to keep his good looks such a secret...

You need to come around more often. Ceebs posted his photo before on one of the earlier blogs. He used to talk about a girlfriend a lot but I haven't seen her mentioned lately.
YOU HEAR THAT CEEBS!

Hey, Grandma Moses started late!

Oh dear my weakness for brainy women ....

Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.

Oh, of course you are.  If you were available, it would mean the earth's spun off its axis or something, some law of the universe suspended...

Unfortunately I am available (only because I recently threw a guy out into the cold, philanderer...  well, now you know how to get thrown out into the cold...)  To bad for you. ;)

Well, poemless, I'm broke...
