Not in the clamor of the crowded street, not in the shouts and plaudits of the throng, but in ourselves, are triumph and defeat.--Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

REDIRECT ALERT! (Scroll down past this mess if you're trying to read an archived post. Thanks. No, really, thanks.)

Due to my inability to control my temper and complacently accept continued silliness with not-quite-as-reliable-as-it-ought-to-be Blogger/Blogspot, your beloved Possumblog will now waddle across the Information Dirt Road and park its prehensile tail at http://possumblog.mu.nu.

This site will remain in place as a backup in case Munuvia gets hit by a bus or something, but I don't think they have as much trouble with this as some places do. ::cough::blogspot::cough:: So click here and adjust your links. I apologize for the inconvenience, but it's one of those things.

One for Miss Janis--

Fabio Seeking Mr. Right in Reality Show

By MICHAEL CIDONI, Associated Press Writer

LOS ANGELES - Fabio is looking for Mr. Right.

The Italian-born model, author and entrepreneur hosts the new reality series "Mr. Romance," debuting Monday on the Oxygen cable channel (10 p.m. EST).

"We took about 12 guys from the United States and different cities and we groomed them how to be perfect gentlemen," Fabio told AP Television News recently.

"So, we teach them how to have table manners, how to dance waltz and tango and salsa. And, at the same time, how to, you know, be a real gentleman with women, and what women really want."

Pssst! CUTE SHOES! Sorry--I hope I didn't spoil the ending.

According to Fabio, the most important thing a man can give a woman is his sense of humor. So to that end, "Mr. Romance" often goes for the humorous, with Fred Willard providing some color commentary.

"And, also, because when you put 12 guys, with a lot of testosterone, in one room — trust me, you get a lot of comedy," Fabio said.

Even with Fred Willard, one is assuming.

Viewers of "Mr. Romance" also get a lot of skin. It's part of the show's "Romance Boot Camp."

Viewers of the writer of Possumblog also get a lot of skin. Lots and lots. AND it jiggles!

"We get working out with weights and running and, also, you know, a good diet," Fabio said. "And it's important when you work out and try to keep a physique. Fifty percent is working out and 50 percent is eating habits. You know, you are what you eat."

I beg to differ--I have never eaten moron in my whole life!

All that sweat could be worth it. The top prize is $100,000 and the opportunity to follow in Fabio's footsteps as a Harlequin-romance cover model.

Fabio said the winner is in for a treat. "You know, you work with beautiful women all the time. You hug 'em and kiss 'em. And I don't think it's that tough."

Of course it's not that tough, bright boy! All you get to do is all the fun stuff, and then you get to send "'em" home!

Keeping romance alive is a little harder, he said.

"My basic philosophy in life is, `Never take yourself too seriously.' Life is too short and you should have fun with it."

Well, okay, I can't fault him there.
