Thank you for taking down white boy week! :)

Kokubo with his dreadlocked hair extensions and baggy pants is so HOT!!!

My list of countries with the most attractive people: 1) Rome, Italy (only Rome) - both male and female are so stylish and hot there; 2) Egypt - males only, and 3) India - males only. What can I say, I them light dark and skinny.

Honestly - GS - it amazes me that you summarize every week. Thank you.
