I never go on Instagram or Vines. Yeah, I use Facebook to stay in touch with friends, and I don’t watch YouTube videos. So, I never knew about the guy to the left, whose name is Dylan Dauzat, age eighteen. When I happened to post a photo of him last Thursday, I had no idea who he was. Then an anonymous person sent me links to Dylan’s Instagram and YouTube accounts. It seems Dylan fashions himself a “model, actor and singer”, but to me it seems all he does is take photos of himself to post online. Okay, he’s pretty damned cute, but it takes more than “cute” to make it in the entertainment world, and I suspect Dylan is little more than an Instagram pretty boy like Cameron Dallas, who no one will remember three years from now.
No, I didn’t post on this site over the weekend, and that’s because I was gone with my boyfriend for three days, to attend Homecoming Weekend at the University of Florida. We had a blast, and the Gators trounced their SEC football opponent, Missouri. We had fun tailgating before the game, and Friday night I took my great niece out for dinner. She’s a freshman up there, and it was good to see her.
We rented a nice apartment up there for two nights, and then we drove home Sunday afternoon. It was a wonderful time, and I enjoyed walking around campus a bit. We even visited my old fraternity house, where the brothers gave us free beer and made us feel welcome at their pre-game party.
I’ve been busy as hell this morning, first with my three-mile walk on the beach, followed by 2-1/2 hours of writing fresh material for my novel-in-progress. I made a few business calls, and after I finish this post I need to pay some bills that came in over the past several days.
In a little while I will share lunch with my boyfriend, and then we’ll ride into the city to visit the YMCA for a workout and lap-swimming. It’s nice having him home today, since he took a day off from his pro-bono work he has to do for law school. I’m not sure what’s in store for tonight, but I suspect Monday Night Football will be in the mix. 🙂
Have a nice Monday, everyone.
