Il Pleut Comme Vache Qui Pisse

Our HOTT Crew learned some fun French phrases whilst cycling in Provence. Once, during an arduous 7 mile ascent through the Gorges de Venasque to the Col de Murs (a high mountain pass) in torrential rain our DuVine Adventures guide taught us the French equivalent for "raining cats and dogs."

Il pleut comme vache qui pisse!

It's raining like a pissing cow!

And that's exactly what Boston has been experiencing the past 18 hours. Torrential rain. Blasting sheets of rain. Torrents of water everywhere. So when we spotted these washed-out gentlemen aboard our train, in front of a rainy-day advertisement mentioning Paris, no less, we couldn't help but be reminded of that very descriptive French phrase, "Il pleut comme vache qui pisse!"!

He Spoke French

He spoke French, and captured our hearts. And what delicious eyewear! And the jouged sleeves and the cashmere sweater were a wonderful American Traditional touch on such a fine European gentleman.

Magnificent Monday - He Wore a Wedding Ring

And as a friend near and dear to us says, "Not my problem!". It's the first truly crisp autumn day, and what a treat to find a handsome man so magnificently turned out. From the North Face luggage to the designer scarf with European-style stripes to the crisply coiffed hair style with hints of auburn and gray. And have we mentioned his delicious facial hair? Oh he was a fabulous find on this brilliant day!

So many fine men on the T during the Head of the Charles Regatta! And we were lucky to capture this ebullient fellow texting away on his iPhone. As he typed a big dimple-inducing grin would burst forth, and we imagined he was flirting with someone via iMessage. Whoever was on the receiving end of his messages must be a very lucky person!

Our 1,000th post! We enjoy capturing the nuances and unique perspectives of hotties, but what our viewers don't get to see are the behind the scenes shots of how we go about doing it. So above is our "blog ready" version of prep/hipster. And below... how it looks as it's being taken!

And now we'd like to make a public service announcement. The main data hub for our HOTT Crew, a mid-2009 MacBook Pro, suffered a debilitating illness on final restart from an upgrade to Apple's new OS, Yosemite. But we keep on chugging because we make weekly clones of the MacBook Pro!

So don't forget... keep backing it up!

Fabulous Friday - Mt Whitney

This gentleman hottie caught our eye on the train, and we admired his brilliantly white "Whitney Cup" sweater. Our hottie is into Polo! Oh the fun we could have with our gent in Palm Beach!
