Fabulous Friday, Off to Pittsburgh, Eye Candy, More Later

Hey Blogger Friends, it's Fabulous Friday again. I have to scoot to Pittsburgh straight from work this afternoon, so I only have this 10 minute break here at home to change and get out the door. I will post more tomorrow, along with your hint for "Blogger Quest", there's only 3 more days left in the contest. I may post later tonight depending on when and if I get home...Have a great weekend blogger friends....and of course, a little Eye Candy at least for you..GG


Okay Blogger Friends, I am back from Pittsburgh, and just about too full to type. We went to one of my fave restaurants there, Johnny Carino's. Great food all the way around, we had appetizers starting with Italian Nachos layered with sausage and/or chicken, pepperoncini peppers, black olives, diced roma tomatoes & jalapeƱos, topped with mozzarella, parmesan cheeses & alfredo sauce. Then they serve individual fresh baked baguettes with olive oil and seasonings for dipping. Then our salads, and the dressing, Sun-Dried Tomato Balsamic Vinagrette, was to die for. My friend had the combo platter with lasagna, spaghetti and chicken parmigiana. I opted for the Chicken Penne Gorgonzola, OMG, sheer heaven. We both stopped at the half way portion of our meals, (they are very large), and asked for boxes and the dessert menu. Now your friendly neighborhood Gay Guru has been doing well with his diet and workouts, but tonight I HAD to cheat. I had a chocolate cake, with chocolate frosting and toffee pieces, heated up with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. OMG, so good, but am so full. We wandered around Ikea and PetSmart afterwards just to try to walk off some of it, and IKEA turned into like a 2 hour ordeal. I hate their furniture construction, but love the way they put together their rooms, it always gives me such great decorating ideas, that I want to run home and tear the place apart and redecorate immediately. It's gonna take an extra long workout tomorrow, but tonight was definitely worth every bite with great food, great company, and great shopping afterward, what more can a Gay Guru want??

And on we go to put our FAB in Fabulous Friday.....Owning a submersible is one of the coolest trend that has occupied the super-rich now-a-days! I have told you about some fabulous submersible options in the past too, and here comes another cool addition onto the list with the C-Quester submersibles from Netherlands based U-Boat Worx. The C-Quester submersibles are available both for private and commercial users and is available in two forms, the single occupant CQ1 and the two-man CQ2. The C-Quester can dive in all waters, regardless of depth and it can dive to a maximum depth of 150 ft. The C-Quester can remain submerged on a full charge for 2.5 hours and it takes 12 hours to recharge.

Next up in Fabulousness, is the Power Plate Vibrating Exercise Machine – The New Gym Favorite. Power PlateWant claims to know the secret behind Madonna’s perfectly toned physique!! Forget the traditional workouts, the way to acquire the “perfect 10” is this Power Plate Vibrating Exercise Machine that is the latest fad all-over in England. The new workout machine features a vibrating platform you stand on and do light stretches and squats for 15 minutes, three times a week. The vibrations caused by the machine stimulate the muscles and causes them to tire faster than a traditional workout. RealTechNews reports that, “Madonna claims causes her physique to remain toned.” The PowerPlate company claims that, “With power plate greater results are achieved and hormonal production is increased in much less time compared with traditional training methods.” The gym version of the latest in the gym technology is available for $9,250 and the personal version for $3,500. Maybe this will help me work off that italian chocolate cake that is sitting in my stomach and growling at
