A Few Sunday Bits & Bobs

2 Jun

Let me out! I promise to be a good boy!

I’m feeling lazier than usual today – must be this heat and humidity. Ugh. My hair puts Marouane Fellaini’s to shame. I’ve managed to wrangle it into a bun and now I’m heading out to a going away party. But before I do, here’s some of the bits and bobs that I’ve been meaning to post for the past few days.

tumblr_mno117GN421qa3jw0o1_500Mesut keeps inflicting pictures of his weedy little pR0nstache on us (along with wispy chin hairs). I do not like this look on him at all. Not like I can do anything about it though, so I guess I’ll just have to adapt. In this shot, he looks like the dude who sits by the laundromat down the street drinking a 40 out of a paper bag who always shouts “Ay mami” at me. This is not a good association for me, Mesut. Just sayin’.

Mesut wasn’t the only one with questionable facial hair. Carles Puyol has grown a caveman beard. Has Andrea Pirlo started a trend?!

116VX1PCris is getting himself sculpted in wax again and was measured at his home. Fun job to have, isn’t it? “Um, yes, I just, um, need to measure your, um, inseam. It’s for Madame Tussauds. What they were here yesterday? Well, someone forgot to write down the measurement. What do you mean you want to see my ID? Why are you calling for security?”

He also shared some Instagram shots today. The aviators, Gucci belt buckle and trousers obviously stolen from The Ramos had me in a giggle fit. I am, oddly enough, liking his nerd glasses. He looks like a very Euro Clark Kent/Superman in those. Like he’s going to duck into a phone booth, come out in his Real Madrid kit and score 80 bazillion goals. So yeah, pretty much like he does every weekend.


Our dear Calleti has teamed up with his twin Juanmi for their Callejon Brothers soccer camp. I hope he stays with us next season!

BK5go1jCMAE-1eCMarta, Calleti & Paula are working with their younger doggie Ona and a trainer on obedience. The trainer posted (as did Calleti & Marta) some great pictures of Ona being put through her paces.

Here’s some more pictures of the lovely Torres family courtesy of  entretenimiento.terra.esiscosuarez and GFSports.


In the next post, I’ll share some La Roja news, but this is it for the bits & bobs for the time being. Hope everyone is enjoying their Sunday.

    I’m always a bit shocked that these gazillionaires are out there on the public beaches. You would think they owned massive beach houses with a private beach.

      why be shocked many billionaires and millionaires are very down to earth people and like mixed company, its just a stereotype really

        It’s only irritating if they then complain about people taking pictures. You can solve that if you want but I’ve never heard Fernando complain about it

          I wondered that, he seems super private and there are loads of places all across the med where you can hire a villa with a private beach. Mustn’t bother him having people taking & posting pics of his kids? Not sure I’d be that laid back…

        • Mehreh June 2, 2013 at 6:18 pm #

          The only thing I’ve heard him complain about was when paps follow him when he’s driving. But that’s totally reasonable on his part.

            I think they try to give their children as normal a childhood as is possible. Hence, going to the beach just like everybody else, would be normal.

      Not sure I would be ok knowing people are taking pics of my kids at the beach but on the other hand I like that they are just a normal family.
      I guess people just tend to leave him alone when the kids are there so they aren’t too fussed?

    I’m super impressed if your hair is anything like Fellaini’s! Re. Mesut, do you think he knows that, you know, other people can see these awful selfies he persists on posting?

    And is the beard thing new for Carles? It’s not in my head anyway.

    Cris looks so unbelivably, unhumanly handsome in that vid. He def looks better without clothes. Or glasses. Just leave the glasses on the ground and walk slowly away…

      Well, to clarify, in the humidity, my hair *feels* like it’s as big as Fellaini’s! But yeah, I can’t match that ‘fro.

    I love me some Puyi but he’s looking like a homeless caveman lately.

    Umm, yes, Senor Cristiano, we do need to re-measure your inseam as our assistant forgot to write down the measurements. Are you okay with that? Si?

    Okay, Lozil, bring out the extra large calipers from the van!
