Appreciating the FUNdamentals


1. The foundation or basis of something.
2. A person's buttocks.

Guess which definition I'm going with for this post. *waggles eyebrows*

Yes, for your Friday viewing pleasure, I bring you the first (and possibly the l-ass-t, depending on how well it is received) installment of...

The Friday Fundament:

Now, if that's not getting down to basics, I don't know what is! Thank you, Mr. Craig, for what you do to a pair of chaps.

(Hey, I grew up in Texas. Can you blame me for appreciating a nice cowboy getup?)

No, I haven't seen Cowboys and Aliens yet. But I'm going to, as soon as Opera Hell* is over and TG has some free time to go with me. Even though the film has received less than stellar reviews. Because who cares about reviews when Daniel Craig's butt is starring in a movie? 

So, what do you appreciate on a fundamental level?
(It doesn't have to be a butt. It could be anything. But a butt would probably be more fun. Just sayin'.) 

* Our "affectionate" (ha!) term for summer, when the theater god spends waaaay too much in the Valhalla of Warbling Stage Performers. Not that I don't appreciate opera...oh, hell. Who am I kidding? I don't appreciate opera. To each her own, and opera ain't generally my own.**

** (Oh, look. I footnoted my footnote.) There are exceptions. I kinda like the funny ones, especially the ones in English, so I don't have to keep staring at the supertitles (like subtitles, only above the stage) just to understand what's going on in the show.

Fridays just got better... *sigh*

Summer Frey said...

I am definitely a butt woman. I remember when I first started dating the guy before my husband, my mom told me "he has a cute butt, can't be too bad." *shakes head*

I want to see Cowboys & Aliens too. I don't care how bad the reviews are--what do they know, anyway? :)

I approve of this feature!

Sarah Tokeley said...

Oh yes, I definitely approve. Even better than camels :)

Gerard Butler.

that's my vote for next week's FUNdamental Friday.

What? He's hot

abby mumford said...

every post should feature daniel craig + your sparkling wit. thanks for the dreamy picture.

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Cowboys and Aliens looks like fun. I might have to suggest it to the family for this weekend. And now, thanks to you, I'll know exactly what I'm keeping an eye out for!

Susan Flett Swiderski said...

Fundamentally speaking, I definitely approve. WHAT? Bottom line, just because the world views me as "old" doesn't mean I don't have my priorities straight. (on second thought, make them nicely rounded and tight ...)

Linda G. said...

Michele -- Always good to "end" the week on a high note, right? ;)

Summer -- LOL! Hey, moms can appreciate a nice behind, too, yannoh. And legs. My mom's first comment about TG after she met him was, "He has nice legs." (TG and I were in shorts, on our way to go tubing on the Guadalupe river.)

Sarah -- Ha! Hey, my camels are hawt, too. ;)

Karla -- Oh, my. Yes. He's, um, fundamentally nice to watch walking away, too.

Abby -- LOL! Maybe not every post, and maybe not always DC, but I'll see what I can do. ;)

Dianne -- Oh, let me know what you think of it! We can't get to it before Tuesday at the earliest, so I've had to put my ogling on hold.

Susan -- Hey, age has nothing to do with, um, esthetic appreciation. Nothing wrong with our eyes, right? ;)

Jeffe Kennedy said...

My man might have these black leather chaps he wears on his motorcycle. *happy sigh*

Jen Stayrook said...

You just know I had to show up for the bottom post. I am certainly an ass gal and boy, does he have a nice one. I'm not a huge fan, but I can appreciate cheeks with the best of them. I suggest you make this a weekly installment. :-)

Carol Kilgore said...

I love chaps, btw.
Of course I'm a Texas woman, too.
You've made this a Happy Friday!

Steph Schmidt said...

This feels like a sneaky ploy to just feature Mr. Craig on the blog. Please make this a regular feature? I could use a refresher course on fundamentals ;)

Linda G. said...

Jeffe -- Niiiice. ;)

Jen -- LOL! May have to do that.

Carol -- Always glad to oblige another Texas woman. :)

Steph -- Ya think? ;) And, yes, one can never study the fundamentals too much.

Patsy said...

I first noticed my Gary when I had to follow him upstairs. He was wearing tight fitting uniform trousers, but obviously that had no bearing and it was his personality I was interested in.

Trisha Leigh said...

I appreciate the Spanish tennis team on a fundamental level. Also, their butts. And abs. And...the rest of them.


Linda G. said...

Patsy -- Yes. A tight, um, personality, is a good quality in a man you're behind on the stairs. ;)

Trisha -- LOL! At least you have your priorities straight.

COLM O'RIAIN said...

Had to butt out from twitter for a month's rest but now back and glad to see your fundamental humour has not bottomed out yet!You certainly have a cheek if if you have to find it in Daniel Craig! Gr8 fun as usual.
