It’s Not All Bad

I feel as though some of my recent posts have been a little “Debbie Downer”, which wasn’t my intent.  Just sometimes life does wear you down a little.  But it is not all bad and tonight my wife and I started watching Seasons 3 of Game of Thrones and The …

Two Beauties Were Lost

So when they cancelled Boss not only did we will miss out on the talents of Kathleen Robertson but also the beautiful English actress Hannah Ware. The world seems like a pretty messed up place these days  and we need all the beauty and alcohol we can find to smooth out the edges. …

The Other Maggie

Now The Consul likes to reminiscence about Maggie Thatcher’s best feature and rightly so, but what about the other Maggie?  Of course I am referring to Dame Maggie Smith. Downton Abbey has been a big hit in America, but I’ve only recently started watching it myself.  I’m almost at the end …

Popular Culture

The Drinking Man’s Diary is really the center of Popular Culture.  Mostly this is thanks to The Consul and his insight, but  I  like to think I play my part every now and then, however small.  A great example is this post from over four years ago.  Firstly, if you …

Don’t Fuck With Me!

This year my beautiful wife and I celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary with a first-class trip to sunny England and a week at the Waldorf in London.  We won’t be meeting up with the boys this time, but I’m hopeful I can return solo in 2018. I can’t post a photo …

Sarah Shahi is Back Again!

So just as soon as Sarah started at Chicago Fire after five episodes she moved to Madrid. WTF? The chemistry was there and she looked great! Me thinks she’ll be back. In the meantime she popped up on Person of Interest this week and here is the promo. A female …

94 Beers To Go

So luckily after tonight’s session I’m down to my last 94 beers before I set out on my big trip to the UK. Now although I have gained some credibility with my boy for watching Breaking Bad, I still miss shows like CW’s Hellcats featuring the beautiful Alyson Michalka. Unlike …

Breaking Bad

So my son started talking to me again when I stopped watching Twilight and the Vampire Diaries and started watching Breaking Bad. Now if you have not seen or heard of this show you are in for an amazing treat. Walter White played by Bryan Cranston is my hero! In …

Vampire Diaries

So when I started watching The Vampire Diaries I thought it was primarily to fill in while I was waiting for the next Twilight movie. However, since Twilight is over I’m really enjoying the show. I just finished season three and was very surprised by the ending. My son worries …

Not just about Sarah

So as much as I love Sarah Shahi the biggest reason I watched Life was because Damian Lewis is such a good actor. So when he popped up in Homeland I had to watch it. It is very compelling television and probably my favorite show of the moment. Sadly I …

Those Fuckers.

As many of you know I have a fondness for Sarah Shahi. I saw her first in the great show Life, with the amazing Damian Lewis (now in the Showtime drama Homeland), but it was cancelled way too early after two seasons, Sarah came back with Fairly Legal which was …

Nice.

How can you go wrong with Sarah Shahi: amazing smile, beautiful, sexy, funny, talented, and a great bod to boot. I was going to put up just a nice photo of her face, because as Kentucky has commented many times, I can’t find a pedestal high enough for my favorite …
