Humpday Hottie

Today I will present to you one of the loves of my life :) (other than Dean Winchester)

Giorgos Alkaios

Yes, he is Greek. A very successful Greek singer actually who is going to represent Greece at this years Eurovision song contest.

Before we start... take a look at this years song. I present to you... Giorgos Alkaios & Friends. And what hansom friends that are too... *grins*



Umm... err... *giggles and clicks on play again*....

Ever since he was a little boy he had a restless character. Not only he was interested in music but in sports as well. His primary contact with music and theater came at the 'Happy Village', a summer camp in Varimpompi (area near Athens), were he participated for 4 years at all music and theater activities both as a camper and leader of the campers. That place learned him the meaning of team spirit, organizing and working.

He gave up on school at the age of 16 to study electronics in a private school, from where he graduated and got a degree.

Photobucket

His first appearance on a TV show was back at 1989, when he was presented at the TV show called 'Come To The Light', aired at the 2nd national TV network. This show was practically the first Greek reality show, as out of 1.500 young actors, singers and dancers and after convincing a professional committee, only 20 made to the finals. George was one of them. He earned and won the opportunity to study dancing, acting and music with very accomplished teachers while other great artists from his field of interests taught him out of their own experiences.

During summer of the same year, he successfully entered an audition for the classic Greek drama of Sofoklis, 'Antigone', starring Aliki Vougiouklaki (the ever unforgettable Greek actor). Composer was another Greek giant, Mikis Theodorakis. Rehearsals lasted over 2 months and the opening took place at the ancient theater of Epidavros. This ancient drama participation, at the age of 17, was and still is one of the greatest experiences of his life. He was the youngest participator for the time, not only in a historic play but in a historic place as well.

Scuttlebutt: Prattle... if you don't know Mikis Theodorakis or the ancient theater of Epidavros, I'd recommend you google them... September is near...

Photobucket

During the same summer he decides to change his course from theater to music. Not hesitating to enter another audition that held in a night stage named 'TUNNEL', he got the job again, as a singer this time. In summer of 1991 he participates in concerts all over Greece. After that, George and the composer Avet Kizirian enter contest at Thessaloniki's Music Festival with the song 'You Don't Want Me Dare'. This year 2 young music stars begin to shine... George Alkaios and Sakis Rouvas. (Scuttlebutt: We will drool ... errr... I mean talk about this one another time *grins*) George wins the first singing prize and starts his career... on his return in Athens he signs with B.M.G. records.

George will not rest in his singing success, so he took live action in both music and lyrics composition. Before the release of his first personal music album George writes songs for other artists. Songs for commercials, even for a world wide refreshment. But above all, songs that lasted in time and continue their success till now.

His songs make a difference in Greek music since it was the first time that eastern sounds were combined with western pop, a fact that altered the music standards for the time. 6 personal records were to come, all with huge success. 5 golden and 3 platinum records. A black scarf on his right hand becomes his trade mark for the next 5 years. He is the only Greek artist that entered a personal fetish to the fashion world. (Scuttlebutt: Yes! I remember! That time everybody was wearing a black scarf around their hand. *giggles*) His songs have a special and unique sound as a result of his active participation even in producing with the valuable advice and experience of the producers.

Photobucket

His outstanding success in combination with his low profile character, were the reasons he had so many proposals from record companies after his contract with B.M.G. expired. After 3 months of negotiating he signed with Sony Music. The first record with the new company, titled 'silent sounds', shocked the whole country. His extreme photos along with his new look made the record gold in less than 24 hours. 4 new records were to come. All of them golden and 2 platinum.

In year 2003 after the expiration of his latest contract with Sony Music, which was right after his contract with B.M.G., George decided to sign with a Greek music company rather than an international one. Alpha Records offered him the opportunity of music creation which made him to accept the collaboration. Not only his new contract but his new album as well, persisting of 12 new songs in a DVD package, made some real noise. The same record company, a year after, released a special edition of this album with a 2 hour DVD dedicated to his artistic presence(songs, video clips and amateur videos of his concerts).

George's reputation out of Greece; he is very popular in Greek communities all over the world. He is one of the few Greek artists who hold the record: for the last ten years he is performing without interruption in Cyprus, Germany, Great Britain, Canada, Australia and the U.S.A.

Photobucket

Scuttlebutt: Coming soon to a theater close to you *grins* You should go see him Prattle!! He's very entertaining :)

He has performed in great theaters and concert halls. House of Blues, Manhattan Center, Metro, Taj Mahal, Crown, Fox Studios, Vic Theater are some of the places in which he appeared. Recently he performed twice in Tirana's Concert Hall in Albania; he was also invited for concerts in Bulgaria and Romania.

George Alkaios has also entered the international charts with Greek songs. (Scuttlebutt: This is really a big deal for Greek artists. We are a small country and this doesn't happen very often) In year 2000 his song 'Simadi' was accepted in the music collection of France's Buddha Bar. He is the first Greek artist to be accepted in this album. A year after that, 'Sirmatoplegma' becomes the winnig song for the Turkish team Galata Sarai, when it won the European Super Cup and the UEFA Cup.

Here you can watch the video clips for the Song "Simadi" (the concept remind Michael Jackson's "Thriller").



And here the video clip to the song "Sirmatoplegma" mentioned above.
I don't really like him that blond but... I still love him :)



His first platin LP abroad came from Sweden, when Antique performed his song 'Opa-opa'; and became famous all over Europe. One of the most important Greek singers, Despina Vandi, is performing the same song in Greece and abroad. His song 'S' agapao' (which means "I love you" for those who don't know...) has already been translated into English and is expected that it will be performed by a foreign artist. The same song is a hit in Eastern Europe by a famous Romanian artist although George has never given his permission for this production. His song 'Ki olo mou leipeis' will be used as musical trailer by the greatest broadcasting company of Bulgaria.

Scuttlebutt: I know there's a lot Greek in there *snickers* but here at ScuttlePrattle you'll learn about other cultures and nationalities too! :)

Let me know what you think :))

Oh... and before I go... let's look at that song presentation again... hummm....



Love,
Scuttlebutt

How to cheat on your diet :) and still lose weight



Hey Prattle, I found some tips on Health.com about how to cheat on your diet and still lose weight. *snickers*

You know what a cheater I am.. so I had to share this with you!!





Eat great and stay fit

Who says you have to deprive yourself of all deliciousness to stay fit? You can enjoy foods you love without adding pounds. Here’s how to pull it off, from nutritionist Marissa Lippert, RD, author of The Cheater's Diet.


Eat treats

Photobucket

"Allow for two mouth-watering, indulgent sweets each week," Lippert says. “And focus on quality—a scoop of really great real ice cream, a rich cookie or coffee drink.” Budget about 200 to 300 calories for each.


Dine out

Give yourself two nice “splurge” meals a week. “This is your time to have the non-diet foods you thought were completely off limits—such as slices at your favorite pizzeria, or a filet with mashed potatoes,” she says. The only caveat: Use portion control. Limit yourself to two small slices of pizza with a side salad, order small cuts of meat, and eat just half of creamy, cheesy sides.


Give yourself cocktail tickets

Photobucket

You can still enjoy wine, beer, or a Cosmopolitan—but you’ll need to cut back if you’re trying to lose a pound or two a week. Figure out your weekly average, and cut that by one-fourth; that’s your maximum number of drinks each week.


Savor some chocolate

You can enjoy some every single day: Have two or three tasting squares—about 75 calories worth of chocolate. And buy the really good stuff (explore some brands to try at www.chocosphere.com). “Choose great-tasting chocolate, and you’ll be able to eat smaller amounts and be satisfied,” Lippert says.

Photobucket


Go ahead—add on to your salad

With all the extra toppings, restaurant salads can easily add up to 700, 800, even 900 calories. But who wants a bowl of naked lettuce? Instead, load a plate (not a bowl) with dark greens, some protein to fill you, and whatever fresh fruit and veggies you like. Cheat by adding two or three one-tablespoon servings of the fattening stuff (dried fruit, nuts, seeds, cheese, bacon crumbles, croutons, fried tortilla strips, or avocado). Dress your salad with one tablespoon of a real vinaigrette or oil and vinegar—fat helps satisfy you and unlocks some nutrients in your salad. Now, dig in.


Reach for the breadbasket

Photobucket

If bread is your weakness, eat the best: If the basket on the table is filled with stale, cold slices or squishy sandwich-style stuff, you’ve got a good reason to ask the waiter to take it away: That bread won’t make you happy. But when you’re offered a hearty, artisan loaf with a dense texture and crisp crust, treat yourself to a small slice, says Lippert. Gild it with a teaspoon of olive oil or butter and enjoy every wonderful bite.


Party with a plan

No need to camp out by the crudités during a party. Scan the buffet, making note of your favorite hors d’oeuvres. Go back, and choose only two or three higher-calorie appetizers. (Want chips and dip? Count out seven chips, and dip—don’t scoop—into the guacamole.) Fill up on veggies and fresh fruit, and save room for one sweet treat at the end. You deserve it!

Steamy Tuesday!

Hello girls and guys *grins*

Sooooooo..... today we will discuss the very sensitive subject of CHEATING with you. If you decide to comment, that is. Cause lately we think that either your keyboard must have issues... *grins* or maybe your fingers?? You can ask somebody else to help you type, you know... *grins*

Well... anyway!


CHEATING or "10 Things to do if your man is cheating on you"


1. Dust the insides of his freshly washed boxers with hot chili powder.

Photobucket

2. Donate his 60-inch plasma to charity.

3. Engaged? Write him a touching thank-you note for the 3-carat Tiffany diamond ring that will now be worn on your middle finger.

4. Change his e-mail's auto response to "I'm unavailable today due to a raging case of genital warts."

Photobucket

5. "Forget" where you parked his vintage convertible.

6. Take a photo of yourself naked, then blur out all the good parts and leave it on his pillow with a message that says, "Too bad you'll never see these again."

7. Invite your friends to a backyard bonfire using his clothes and prized sports equipment as kindling.

Photobucket

8. Resist the urge to break up with him until the day of his big meeting — then give him a Sharpie mustache right before his alarm goes off.

9. Serve up Ex-Lax brownies to give him puh-lenty of time to sit and think about what he's done.

10. Challenge him to a naked wrestling match and whip out your signature move, the Ten-Fingered Ball-Crusher.

Photobucket

BIG thanks to Cosmopolitan for this article!!

Beware... dear cheaters. *wink*

Scuttlebutt and Prattle... always at your services with ball-breaking ideas. Bwahaha!

Attack of the Nosy Neighbors!

Hello friends! We hope you had a wonderful weekend!

Today we have a special treat for you.... Ms. Dianne from Weirdly Obsessive Gerard Butler Fansite! *applause* (check out affiliate button on the right and on twitter @woGerryButlerfs)


Photobucket



1. We know what we call you... What would you like us to call you?

Gerard Butler’s secret lover.

GB Atilla

Prattle: I don't know if I could keep that a secret..I'd be shouting it for the WORLD to hear! And I'm pretty loud, so the neighbors would know... *giggles*
Scuttlebutt: And I was preparing some pop corn to watch you two pull your hair out... Pfff...
Prattle: I wouldn't fight Dianne over Gerry.... :)
Scuttlebutt: *cough* ...liar... *cough*
Prattle: Ok, maybe I would....

2. How old are you or how old do you want us to think you are?

Old enough to know better and young enough not to care.

Prattle: Mwhahahahaha! Great answer!
Scuttlebutt: *giggles* I agree!


3. When is your Birthday & what is your star sign?

November seventh and I am sexy Scorpio.

Prattle: We have a lot of friends that are Scorpio's, don't we Scuttle?
Scuttlebutt: Yes we do! And they are all hypersexual *grins*

Scorpio (23 October - 21 November): Pluto is the ruling planet and Water is the element of this sun sign. The shades of red, brown and violet are the lucky colors; green is the color for love and harmony. The numbers 2, 5 and 7 are the lucky numbers, while Tuesday is the luckiest day of the week. Bloodstone, Jasper and Topaz are the lucky gems for Scorpio. The animal symbol of Scorpio is "Scorpion". By nature, a Scorpio is jealous, possessive, courageous and determinant. They are also loyal to their loved ones. They are best compatible with Cancer and Pisces, and least compatible with Leo, Aquarius and Taurus.


4. Do you like cats or dogs? And why?

Both, I love all animals.

Prattle: Awwwww.....
Scuttlebutt: I really do like that gal.


5. What is your favorite movie and/or book?

I don’t have a favorite movie, there are so many that I love and my all time favorite book is Outlander by Diana Gabaldon. Outlander started my obsession for Gerard Butler. I can’t imagine any one playing the handsome Scottish Highlander Jamie Fraser but Gerry.

Prattle: *makes note to find that book* I'm with you on the movie thing.. I like a lot of different movies too.
Scuttlebutt: I don't even remember which movie I said was my fave... yes, my brain is as small as a goldfishes.
Prattle: You just have "Dean on the brain". If it doesn't have to do with Dean, it's in one ear and out the other! *giggles and hugs you*
Scuttlebutt: Well, I think he's the only worthy thing on my brain! LOL! And the most beautiful too!

6. What countries have you visited?

I live in the US and I have just visited Canada.

Prattle: Where in Canada did you go? Why did you visit there?
Scuttlebutt: You do stand up to the post title Prattle, you know that, right?
Prattle: Yep *nods head* I sure do!


7. Do you have any tattoos and/or piercings?

No tattoos, and I have three piercings in one ear and four in the other.


Prattle: Well that seems pretty normal!
Scuttlebutt: She seems pretty normal to me too, yup!


8. What super-power would you most like to have, and why?

I have no idea. I can’t even come up with one.


GB wet

Prattle: I think she would want to teleport, that is my answer for her! So she can immediately go to wherever Gerard is!
Scuttlebutt: Or maybe she would like to be invisible! So she could sneak in his room?
Prattle: But there would have to be touching involved...would he be able to feel her if she's invisible?
Scuttlebutt: Of course he would! Haven't you EVER seen "Hollow man"? Or "Fantastic Four"? Do you only watch movies with Gerry? *giggles* You can slap someone across the face and he wont know what hit him! I think Invisibility would be my next favorite super power! After teleportation!


9. Name one thing that not many people know about you.

I’m writing a romance novel.

Prattle: I would LOVE to read chapters for you! Does your male character resemble Gerard??? *grins*
Scuttlebutt: I'd bet my right foot!
Prattle: Oh, don't do that Scuttle.. You'd look very funny with only a left foot..
Scuttlebutt: Ok, my tail then! *snickers*


10. Whats the first thing you think of when you wake up in the morning?

I have to feed my dog and cat. They are demanding critters.

Prattle: *nods head* Yes, feeding the pets is important...
Scuttlebutt: *giggles*


11 If you could go to one place in the world, where would it be?

London England, I would love to tour some of the historical sites.. like The Tower of London.

Prattle: Yes, I'd like to see that too.
Scuttlebutt: What about Acropolis? No?


12. Do you prefer shaven ... or unshaven?

Shaven. Surprise, surprise because of Gerry Butler and his scruff but when he shaves (rarely) and you see his dimples, I stare at him like Homer Simpson does a donut! GUHHHHHH!

Prattle: bwahahahahaha! Homer and a donut!!
Scuttlebutt: LMAO!! I loved this comparison!



13. On a deserted island, what one thing would you bring?

My husband.

Prattle: Awwwww!!
Scuttlebutt: Awwwww! Shame on us picking the hotties over our hubbies/boyfriends! (not *sticks out tongue*)
Prattle: I know.... but the fantasy of the hotties is what makes it goooooooood!
Scuttlebutt: I could never think of myself being alone on a deserted island with my bf! As much as i love him... I would crack up his head with a coconut! *shakes head* No no no! But Dean... *nods* I could see myself doing things to him... *cough* I mean ... WITH him. Of course..



14. If you could see in black and white and one other color, what would it be?

Purple

Prattle: Another purple Scuttle!
Scuttlebutt: You know, my bf doesn't like purple at all! Our church has purple colors for funerals and he really hates it. Especially in a specific shade! So what does that tell us about "the secret lover of Gerry" dear Prattle?
Prattle: Purple is the color of good judgment. It is the color of people seeking spiritual fulfillment. It is said if you surround yourself with purple you will have peace of mind. It is a good color to use in meditation.

Purple has been used to symbolize magic and mystery, as well as royalty. Being the combination of red and blue, the warmest and coolest colors, purple is believed to be the ideal color. Most children love the color purple. It is the color most favored by artists. Thursday's color is purple.

Scuttlebutt: New source I see?
Prattle: Yes, gotta mix things up sometimes. *grins*


15. Standing or on all fours?

All fours

Prattle: Your kitchen floor must be very dirty.. very dirty indeed!
Scuttlebutt: She has a cat and a dog! Must be! *giggles*



16. Hard and fast or soft and slow?

Soft and slow

Prattle: *sigh* a light misting....
Scuttlebutt: I love the sound of the rain when its soft and slow... *sigh*



17. What is your favorite food to bring to bed - strawberries, chocolate, whip cream?

Pineapple rings and a good aim.

Prattle: Well that's new! I like it!!
Scuttlebutt: *chokes on coffee* Bwaahahahahaaaa!!
Prattle: *pats you on the back* Come on, breathe!
Scuttlebutt: *wipes away tears* I think thats so funny! Love you girl!!



18. Ever had sex at work??????

YES!!!!

Prattle: Of course you have... LOL!
Scuttlebutt: Tsk tsk tsk! Naughty naughty!



19. What is your favorite curse word?

FUGLY short for fucking ugly it always makes me smile to hear something described like that.

Prattle: It is a pretty funny word!
Scuttlebutt: Dude... you fugly... *sighs and thinks of Dean saying that line*
Prattle: *rolls eyes*
Scuttlebutt: WHAT?? He did!!



20. What is the funniest or the most awkward sexual experience you've had?

Ewww, I was blowing my husband in a local Mexican restaurant in broad day light (when we were dating). I told him to keep a look out but in the euphoria of the moment he closes his eyes, (go figure) and I hear a car door slam next to us and it was a group of senior citizens! AHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

Prattle: Oh, that is....FUNNY!!!!
Scuttlebutt: LOL! I bet you gave them a subject to talk about! Hahahaha!
Prattle: She IS naughty!!!! *giggles* I wonder what all she did at work since she answered 18 in all caps.. Hmmm.... *grins*

Therapeutic Thursday

Hello again friends!

Scuttlebutt found an interesting article on askmen.com, that we DON'T want to slap them for!

I, Prattle, am an emotional eater. I eat when I'm happy, I eat when I'm upset. Here are ten natural appetite suppressants to keep you satisfied and able to control your caloric intake! What do you do to not over eat? Let us know!



Photobucket


No.10 - Apples

You’ve heard the saying: ”An apple a day (no, not an Apple jingle girl) keeps the doctor away,” and now apples may do more than just that. One large apple supplies approximately 5 grams of fiber, which fills the stomach up for a longer period of time. Additionally, the sugars found in apples do not influence blood sugar levels as much as starchy carbohydrates do, meaning you’ll have a reduced risk of a blood-sugar spike followed by a crash.

No.9 - Flaxseeds

Flaxseeds are becoming a more popular way of getting in your essential fatty acids, but they also offer a good dose of soluble fiber to your diet. Sprinkle these little appetite suppressants into your yogurt or cottage cheese and you’ll provide your body with some slow-digesting fats to go along with the protein that’s already very satisfying.

No.8 - Caffeine

happy coffee

Caffeine is a daily part of most of our lives, yet many of us don’t realize the appetite-suppressing properties that caffeine has. This stimulant is most noted for its energizing effect along with its ability to help keep you awake during that mid-morning meeting. When taken in moderate doses, however, as the central nervous system is stimulated, you’ll also tend to experience a decreased appetite.

No.7 - Water

Photobucket


Staying well hydrated is another very important thing you must do if you hope to prevent hunger. Not only do we often mistake hunger for thirst, but when we are dehydrated we are more apt to feel tired, causing us to attribute this fatigue for a food shortage. If you truly are tired and lacking sleep, keep in mind that your brain will release a hormone telling your body that you’re hungry when, in fact, you are not.

No.6 - Hoodia

Hoodia is a supplement that many people believe helps them control their hunger. Hoodia originated from Africa and was primarily used by hunters when they went out on hunting expeditions to prevent hunger pains from shortening their trip. Be aware, however, that it can take a few days to exert its affects; if you don’t feel anything at first, wait it out before making judgments.

No.5 - Chicken & vegetable soup

Photobucket


Starting your meal off with soup is another way to reduce your appetite. Hot liquids in general tend to take the edge off hunger and since there are so few calories per cup, you can eat a good volume to fill your stomach. Chicken and vegetable soup is your best bet since the small amount of protein in the chicken will curb your hunger longer, while the vegetables and fluid will instantly fill you up.

No.4 - Wasabi

Photobucket

Consuming spicy foods also helps to suppress the appetite. So next time you’re having sushi or fish try adding some wasabi to it to really tame your appetite. In addition to hunger suppression, wasabi has also been known to help protect against cancer and provide anti-inflammatory effects.

No.3 - Oatmeal

Photobucket

Starting your day off with unsweetened oatmeal is a great way to prevent hunger later on in the morning. Oatmeal contains more dietary fiber than most cereal and is very low in sugars, meaning it’s not going to leave you with a blood-sugar crash. Add some cinnamon, unsweetened applesauce or a touch of sugar-free maple syrup for added flavor.

No.2 - Salmon

Salmon works well to reduce your appetite due to the healthy fat it contains. Protein-rich foods are the most satiating nutrient upon being eaten, but fat is what has staying power to keep you feeling satisfied in the hours to come. By eating salmon, you’ll get the best of both worlds.

No.1 - Almonds

Photobucket


Finally, almonds are another great source of healthy fats and make for a great snack between meals -- provided you watch portion sizes. Note that the hunger-reducing effects of nuts tend to take about half an hour before you feel them, so eat them before you reach the point of being extremely hungry or you’ll be tempted to eat more than just the nuts.

He says he will never get married again, nor have any children, but Michelle Pfeiffer and Nicole Kidman both bet $10,000 each that he would be a father before he turned 40. They were both wrong, and each sent him a check. He returned the money, betting double or nothing that he won't have kids by age 50.

Waged war against the paparazzi by boycotting "Entertainment Tonight" (1981), the sister show of "Hard Copy" (1989), which had filmed Clooney without his permission.

Personal Quotes

I don't like to share my personal life... it wouldn't be personal if I shared it.

Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002) bombed. But I can take it. Most of the films I've done haven't done particularly well. I'm surprised I'm continuing to work.

Directing is really exciting. In the end, it's more fun to be the painter than the paint.

I don't believe in happy endings, but I do believe in happy travels, because ultimately...you die at a very young age, or you live long enough to watch your friends die. It's a mean thing, life.

I doubt anybody gets taken seriously for very long. I'll be on some reality show in about six years going, Hey, I had a great year in 2006.

You never really learn much from hearing yourself talk.

We're the ones who talked about AIDS when it was just being whispered. And we talked about civil rights when it wasn't really popular. This academy - this group of people - gave Hattie McDaniel an Oscar in 1939 when blacks were still sitting in the backs of theaters. I'm proud to be a part of this academy, proud to be part of this community, and proud to be out of touch.

You can only get so far without discernible talent - then you either work, or use cheap publicity tricks to keep the public's attention. Paris (Hilton) has no reason to complain if she is on the end of bad publicity.

On who will win the Best Actor Oscar in 2008: "If you want my honest opinion, I think it's going to be Daniel Day-Lewis [for There Will Be Blood (2007)]. He sort of irritates all of us because he's so good. I'll tell you right now, I don't like him!"

Had I not got the Thursday night ten o'clock slot at "ER" (1994), if they'd put us on Friday night, then I wouldn't have a film career. That's luck, not my own genius, though I like to think it was.

I'd rather have a rectal examination on live TV by a fellow with cold hands than have a Facebook page!

I never wear makeup for movies and now it's starting to show. It's funny, because most male actors work with actresses who are considerably younger. But earlier in my career I was working with a lot of actresses who were my age or older so people always thought I was older anyway; and now I'm going through this thing with people thinking I'm about 60. But I'm kind of comfortable with getting older because it's better than the other option, which is being dead. So I'll take getting older.

Steamy Tuesday

Look at what we came across the other day :)

Cosmo was asking people if they would do it outdoors, where that would be and then they got more specific.

Here it is... let us know what you think too. Ok?

Where outside have you had sex?


HOT TUB

Prattle: Yep...done that...
Scuttlebutt: Nope, not me.
Prattle: I didn't think it was fun.
Scuttlebutt: Why not??
Prattle: I didn't like it... now in a pool is different...but not the hot tub, water kept getting in my face and it was a smaller hot tub, and i have long legs... cramped...
Scuttlebutt: Uh huh. I get the picture.

CANOE

Prattle: Really? In the water or out? wouldn't want to tip over!
Scuttlebutt: Um... How on earth could somebody do it in a canoe? I mean... I barely can balance myself in that thing. How the hell would I balance myself and my partner?


TENNIS COURT

Prattle: Er....ok
Scuttlebutt: Does that one involves playing with the tennis balls? *smirks*
Prattle: *wondering where Scuttle is going with that*
Scuttlebutt: *giggles*


ROOF TOP

Prattle: Nice! As long as you're on the tallest building around!
Scuttlebutt: *cough* What if its ... really dark?
Prattle: And like 3am?
Scuttlebutt: More like... 11 pm. *grins*
Prattle: But aren't people still awake in Greece at 11pm?? *shocked face*
Scuttlebutt: Well... yeah!But we were on a rooftop!!
Prattle: On the tallest building??? *turns prude*
Scuttlebutt: Um... no...? But there weren't too many buildings around...
Prattle: You're bold! I don't know if I could do it!
Scuttlebutt: I definitely wasn't bold. More like... something that starts with an h and ends with an ...orny. LOL
Prattle: Bwahahahaha! Same thing... :)


TRAMPOLINE

Prattle: Bouncy! Don't get too active or you'll bounce off!
Scuttlebutt: Yeah! And not only that!! If you would bounce too high up and then fell fast and hard, you might loose the... err... target... and hurt yourself. Right?
Prattle: Bwahahahahaa! Ouch...

WATER PARK

Prattle: Hmm...
Scuttlebutt: More specific please.
Prattle: One woman said "in the lazy river", I'm hoping that it is after the park is closed!!


IN THE STREET

Prattle: Weird guy...
Scuttlebutt: Well, I havent done that but I've seen people shamelessly doing IT!!
Prattle: You've seen them doing IT in the street???
Scuttlebutt: Yep! *nods* It wasn't a very central street and it was on an island. But they were doing it alright!


COSMO asked if you would do it in...

OUT DOOR SHOWER

Prattle: Enclosed? Yes I would!
Scuttlebutt: What if not enclosed?
Prattle: Nope.
Scuttlebutt: Pfffft! Chicken...


FIELD OF FLOWERS

Prattle: Awwww, sweet and romantic! (especially if there is a sparkly one with me! *wiggles eyebrows*)
Scuttlebutt: Yeah... sounds nice. *pulls a face and sticks out tongue*
Prattle: *bats eyelashes, sighs...then giggles!*


POOL RAFT

Prattle: In the pool or out of the pool?
Scuttlebutt: Eh?
Prattle: The pool raft, is it in the pool or out of the pool. The whole balance issue would come in question again if it is in the pool.
Scuttlebutt: What do they think? That we belong to a Circus? Sheesh!


Photobucket

HAMMOCK

Prattle: Don't flip over!
Scuttlebutt: There it is again! The question about the balance!! How the hell would you balance yourself and your partner in that thing? I can barely balance myself in it! Anybody! If you've done it, tell us HOW!


SLEEPING BAG UNDER THE STARS

Prattle: Well yes, this one would work too!
Scuttlebutt: Done that. Its almost like laying in your bedroom though.
Prattle: But hopefully with a nice breeze blowing over you!
