Cranking up the heat

It's been a chilly couple of days, my friends. Something is wrong with my vehicle and only one vent is pushing out heat. The rest are circulating chilly Alberta winter air, and last week we got hit with one of our first true cold snaps. Minus 22C without the wind chill.

Not surprisingly, mechanics are booked solid, with the earliest appointment scheduled for Wednesday, when the temperature is supposed to return to the positives for a few days. Irony at its best, I suppose.

Sadly, my vehicle isn't the only thing in need of some warmth. I'm going to have to light a fire under my ass if I plan to tackle any of the items on my massive to-do list. Exciting projects on the horizon, for sure, but without some fiery inspiration, it's going to be a tough haul to find the light at the end of a hazy tunnel.

If heat is what I need, and believe me, I do, then Adam Levine is the perfect muse avatar for this week. Because let's face it, this guy is smoking hot.

I caught a (clothed) glimpse of him performing at the American Music Awards last night, and while Maroon 5 songs are somewhat hit and miss for me, there's nothing amiss with the band's lead singer. He turns up the heat on and off stage - this week I need him to blow some of that hot air towards my works in progress.

Come on baby, light my fire.

  1. Jess, I chose the "tame" version of this picture o_O

  2. Definitely a man who should spend a lot of time naked. Very nice. Sorry you are so flipping cold! We've gone below freezing, but not by nearly that much. Hope the car gets fixed fast and the inspiration heats up!

  3. Yowzers! That's a sexy pic. I have to back away from the computer now. ;)

  4. hmm... I have to say, I never thought of him as hot before. :D LOL!

    Hope you get your car's heater going. It's about to get cooold! <3
