Since my 19th post was dedicated to the male body, I guess it's only fair that number 20 belongs to -20 - Women and the Female Body
Women are sexy. I love the female curves, I love their softness, I love their looks.
Contrary to men where I'm pretty fixed on which look I go for (blond or brown hair, blue or brown eyes, more or less androgynous, preferably with long(ish) hair), it varies quite a bit in women.
Some women I find incredibly sexy are:Cote de PabloOne of the most beautiful women on TV, I think. A great body, wonderful style and whenever she laughs it's like the sun goes up. Liv TylerI adore her eyes. What a great colour! And frankly the whole face is to die for. It's not perfect -at least not in a classical definition-, but it fits her and ... ah well, she's gorgeous! I think I'm in love with the Snow-White look ;)Emily Brett RickardsA lovely girl and in her role as "Felicity" in the TV-series "Arrow" she's just a hottie. A nerdy hottie. Kate WinsletA beautiful lady that gets better-looking with any year that passes. I particularly adore her curves. She's sexy and she isn't afraid to show it :)Cate BlanchettWhat a woman! I'm regularly stunned speechless by her beauty and her sense of style. By far the best-dressed woman in Hollywood! Another example for an incredibly beautiful woman whose face doesn't conform to "classic" beauty.Eva Green in Kingdom of HeavenWhile she's certainly a beautiful woman in real life, it's her looks in KoH that I find particularly sexy. I love her dark-rimmed eyes and this beautiful face framed by the luscious curls.
So yeah, there's no rhyme and reason to my favoured female look :)
However, there are some things I generally love on a female body - and yes, "on" is being the operative word here. I usually favour a woman in a state of "near nakedness", rather than completely nude. I think it's incredibly sexy when women play with the imagination of the people looking at her.
Just think about the difference between a stripper and a burlesque artist - it's easy and a bit boring in the long run to simply take off your clothes, it's way more sexy if you don't show everything - if your nakedness is alluded to, rather than thrust in the audience's faces.( NSFW pics ahead )
So much for my tribute to the female forms.
Let's get to the next one...21 - Pizza
Since it's Sunday, and Sunday is my traditional pizza-day I'll leave the recipe for the "best pizza dough EVER" (actual quote from a bunch of people who had a taste of my treasured pizza) here:
(Forgive me for using grams, millilitre and degree Celsius - I'm too tired to try to convert it... I usually fuck up big time even when in possession of all my mental facilities... it's better if I don't try to calculate it now :) )
For the dough you'll need:
250 millilitres warm water (I usually make it a bit on the hot-ish side, it cools down so quickly after all)
4-5 gram dry yeast (the recipe says 7 but I usually use less for better taste), or roughly 20 gram "normal" yeast
a teaspoon (granulated) sugar
350 gram all-purpose flour
a teaspoon salt
a tablespoon oil (I use extra virgin olive oil)
First step: mix yeast and sugar and 50 millilitres of the warm water, let the mixture rise at a warm place for 15 minutes
Second step: mix flour, salt, oil, the remaining water and your yeast-mixture in a bowl. Once everything is mixed, take it out and knead the dough for 5 minutes on a floured surface - knead in more flour until it's a smooth non-sticky dough. Knead the whole 5 minutes, even if your dough is smooth before that! Put the dough back in your bowl, cover the bowl with transparent foil/saran wrap and let it rise on a warm spot for 30 minutes.
Third step: think about the yummy toppings you want to put onto your pizza ;)
Fourth step: pre-heat oven to 200° Celsius. Take the risen dough and knead it for another 2 minutes - it should look something like this:
Now it's time to form your pizza (I know it's frowned upon, but I usually use a rolling pin with no negative effects ;) )!
Add tomato-sauce and your chosen toppings, top it all off with cheese (I prefer mozzarella) and put it in the oven for 25 - 30 minutes (I usually take it out after exactly 25 minutes, if you like it crisper/darker you might want to wait the additional 5 minutes).
AAAAAAAnd it's done ;)(My fructose-free pizza with mascarpone instead of tomato-sauce and a mozzarella-topping...yum!)
