Had to top the awful mankini photo on FMC's site.

I'm going to Newport, RI for a few days. Though I'm not a beach person, I married one, so I'll have to deal with it for at least one day. All about compromise, me.

Rest assured, I will not look like this charred corpse on my return. (Here's a tip: Invest in Aveeno skin-care products, as they are about to see a spike in sunblock sales. I'm covering up, and yes, that's a fair amount of canvas.) I'll be in the fetal position under an umbrella, slathering some SPF 5 million on, fanning myself with a copy of Vanity Fair, and whinging that none of the Newport liquor stores stock Cider Jack.

Good times.

He's pretty vile aint he? Like years ago when Peter Stringfellow (aging lothario stripclub owner wannbe Hefner never be) strutted down the sands of Cannes wearing an electric snot green thong, I shit you not. I only wish I could find that photo for ya.
Anyhoo, have a very lovely break, mucho kissios.

Ahh Cider Jack, fond memories of Nantucket in '99. I drank Bud Light for a couple of weeks (despite the fact that I loathe beer) then I discovered Cider Jack and was as happy as a pig in muck for the rest of the summer.
