MEME Mondays, Catching Up While Playing Hookie, What Type of European Are You?, You Think You Know Everything? Eye Candy

It's MEME Monday blogger friends, thanx again for letting the Gay Guru take the weekend off. I hope you liked the three days worth of eye candy I left for you on Saturday. I did get a lot done to catch up on everything this weekend, and within a week or two, things should hopefully be back to normal. I hope you all had a great weekend where you were at. Even though I spent most of the weekend catching up on projects, I was able to enjoy a break in the heat Saturday, and put in a fun round of Frisbee Golf at a local park, and had a nice bbq later that evening. Yesterday, the heat and humidity returned hardcore to NE Ohio, and I took Papa Guru out to the dollar movies here in town to see The Davinci Code, to beat the heat and give my mind a rest for a few hours. I enjoyed the movie, but did you know that the Code movie was a sequel to the first book by Dan Brown, "Angels and Demons"?? I read both books in order a year or so ago, and both are great books, but deal a lot in the catholic and church symbology and I kinda got confused a bit watching Code, as to what happened in what book, lol. I kept waiting for scenes that never came because they were in the first book. Oh well, still had a great time with Papa Guru and beat the heat a bit.

Since I was enjoying the sites and sounds of Europe while watching The Davinci Code, I thought I would put this fun MEME up today. Sure enough, I think the film got to me, LOL. Does this also mean I am a snob and dont bathe enough??..hmmmmmmm Will have to ponder this one....Whats your inner European??
