He's Just Too Pretty...and Then There Are Jughandles

Because I'm one of those that can talk about two completely non related subjects during a conversation.....this post is quite in keeping with that idea....

So getting my daily dose of Perez last night...and ran across a blurb about this German band called Tokio Hotel...

Ah hell...I had really nothing better to do....Wednesday night T.V...wasn't looking too promising...so I decided to google them....they're not bad if you are a 17 year old into the whole Rock thing.....they are the 2008 version of the SilverChair of my misguided teen years....


I know you know what I'm talking about...Daniel Johns was on my wall for a good few years....


But Back to Tokio Hotel... can I just say...the lead singer Bill Kaulitz...

Is really pretty...like...REALLY pretty.......almost too pretty to be a boy....









The funny thing....I was thinking how that when daddy gets back...and we go out for our Anniversary...I should take my make-up tips from these pics....You know it's not your parents generation when you take make up tips from a 17 year old boy....


You know...he kind of reminds me of Pete Burns from the 80's Band Dead or Alive...





But when you got it....I guess you've got it....



Oh and Jughandles......The Joy...or Despair.....

I think they created these things just to annoy anyone who is a transplant or a tourist....

Here's the definition from Wikipedia: A jughandle is a type of ramp or slip road that changes the way traffic turns left (when driving on the right). Instead of a standard left turn being made from the left lane, left-turning traffic uses a ramp on the right side of the road. In a standard forward jughandle or near-side jughandle, the ramp leaves before the intersection, and left-turning traffic turns left off it rather than the through road. Right turns are also made using the jughandle. In a reverse jughandle or far-side jughandle, the ramp leaves after the intersection, and left-turning traffic loops around to the right and merges with the crossroad before the intersection.





In simpler terms....a pain in my ass.....


why?? You ask???.....Well....some come before the intersection....some come after the intersection.....some have signs letting you know this....some you have to pass by the first 30 or so times before it's ingrained in your memory....some where you think there would be a jughandle...OMG...they put a left turn light there....so you are all the way over in the right lane....because you are just waiting to have to make that sudden turn onto a jughandle that you really had no idea where it would be.....and crap....just missed the left turn.....

My favorite was always on my way to the OB......to get to her office....I'd see it on the road...."Hi Dr. Seigel"....then I'd have to drive an extra 3 miles down the road....before I was able to hit a jughandle...to turn around....so I could drive all the way back....See why I think they do it just to drive us crazy.....


Ahhhh....I feel so much better now......pretty boys and jughandles.....totally see the connection there.....

First, that "boy" is beautiful! Really, really beautiful! And second, living in SW florida, we don't have "jughandles" but we DO have "white hairs" (read-old people that need their driving priviledges removed) make left hand turns from the RIGHT lane and visa versa . . . ALL . . THE . . TIME!!! fun stuff, I'll tell ya, fun stuff . . it makes driving like a bad driver's ed video . . but it keeps me on my toes! :-)

LOL I first heard of this band a few weeks ago when watching the VMA's on MTV. The other guy in the band is his twin--I googled them too! lol

1st I have always thought the same comparision between that kid & the other group.
Creepy!

As for the jug handles...I grew up in South Jersey, still live here, it's just a fact of life! LOL

He looks like a doll, almost! :-D

My oldest son and I were just talking about this group the other day. I was like "the singer is SO a girl" and he's like "oh no he's not." He was right. They do have this really good tune called "Monsoon" that I belt out on the good 'ol Rock Band. LOL

OMG that 17 year old BOY looked like a GIRL. But i'm with you on taking tips from him about make up, loL. He definitely is the prettiest boy I've ever seen!

He is really beautiful--for a guy?! I've seen a few pics of him on perez. I've seen him compared to a younger Cher from some awards event! He should totally go on America's Next top Model.
