I’m back! I took a little bloggy break and embarked on a childless 8-day road trip while the girls were visiting their dad back home. I went down the coast to SF and back and let me tell you: boy, did it feel good.
Now that I’m back on the island and settled in, I’m committed to getting back on track with this whole blog thing and what better way to start than with a good ‘ol 90s Hottie!
One of the more, ummmmm…. ”amusing” parts of traveling long distances by car is experiencing all the flavors small-town radio stations have to offer. This time around, there was an abundance of religious talk shows, twangy country music, fuzzy “jazz,” and random throwbacks, all of which led to a trip down memory lane with Sugar Ray’s “Fly.”
Do y’all (I say that now — it was all the country music) remember that song? If you lived through the 90s, listened to any radio station at any time for say, more than 10 consecutive minutes, then this smash hit definitely graced your ears at one point or another.
Then I got to thinking about what a total hottie the lead singer, Mark McGrath, was. Sure, his resemblance to Ethan Hawke is more than a little uncanny, which could explain my affinity for him, but still. And while he probably won’t go down in the 90s Hottie Hall of Fame like this guy will, he definitely deserves an honorable mention.
I also have to note that Mark McGrath is yet another 90s Hottie that has caused a bit of debate behind the scenes here at The Little Hen House. I’ve said it before, but I cannot believe how contentious the 90s Hottie posts have become — among men. I get SO many comments, emails, and messages from my male friends and readers contesting each week’s 90s Hottie. I mean, what gives?
Of course, the debate always ends with someone suggesting I start featuring hot women from the 90s, too…. To which I say, “Start your own blog.”
What do you guys think? Why does the 90s Hottie feature resonate so strongly with other men? Also, wasn’t Mark McGrath so flipping cute?
(this next one is my personal fave:)
