Hump Day Hottie – Kostas Martakis

Ok all, I have decided I might try a regular column.  Every Wednesday I would like to bring you the “Hump Day Hottie“!!  I know, it will be a struggle for me finding all these drool-worthy men.

So the first ever Hump Day Hottie is Kostas Martakis!  The 26-year-old Athens born Gemini gained attention in 2006 with the reality talent show Dream Show.  Prior to that he was also a model and played basketball in amateur minor leagues.  He is not just handsome but smart, too.  He majored in computer technologies at the American College of Greece.

Below is his single, Loving You – a duet with DesiSlava, a Bulgarian pop singer.  Enjoy!


Cheer up

To those of you who know me know I have been having a rough time of it lately.  So, I thought I would take a small poll.

In my experience, people have a “go to” item when they need cheering up.  Some may rely on a pet, a certain book, song or movie.

My first line of defense is my youngest cat, Beau.  A good cuddle with him will set me right for a while and calm my mind enough to get an untroubled sleep.  If Beau is unavailable (I’m out of town, perhaps) or not in the mood to deal with my churlish attitude, then my “go to” guy is the one, the only  –  Eddie Izzard.

I have noticed over the years that when I am feeling low, the first thing I look for in the DVD rack is his performance Dress to Kill.  His use of history combined with an almost innocent nature lead to, for me, captivating and entertaining shows.  Add an amazing voice and British accent and you have the charming creature that is Eddie Izzard.

So now I pose the question to you.  What is your “go to” item when you need cheering up?
