…charismatic, good looking, single, straight male lawyer.
No, it’s not for myself, silly, it’s for CLEO magazine’s 2009 50 most eligible bachelors edition. Apparently they can’t find one in Australia. Or so says Roll On Friday, exhibiting an e-mail from the editor of CLEO as evidence.
I must say I’ve never really seen the appeal of that kind of thing at all. No wonder I don’t read women’s magazines. I did once send a calendar of bare-chested AFL stars to a very proper English friend, but I added speech bubbles with bizarre quotations, the source of which she had to guess. I understand she hung it behind her door at college; she was too embarrassed to display it openly, but too polite to discard it. I am a naughty tease.
My favourite quote was, “Everything is atoms and the void” (emanating from a particularly gormless looking fellow). Much less fun in these days of Google, though…
Sounds like one of the shortlisted “bachelor boys” is single for a reason. One of the female judges of the competition alleges the shortlisted nominee assaulted her in a nightclub. Ugh. Sounds like one of those unpleasant fellows who thinks he is God’s gift to women and that accordingly, any woman must want his attention.
