The US Open starts on Sunday. Night tennis! I have a strong sense of attachment to the US Open. It’s back to school anxiety and excitement. It’s end of summer bbq and always a big blowout of a party before getting ready for a new year. Here’s Rafael Nadal yesterday at Letterman in advance of the tournament. Full Story

Woke my ass up at 6am on Sunday for the French Open final. Rafael Nadal vs Roger Federer – there really aren’t too many of these opportunities left. It was beauty for three sets, non? And what’s even better is that they can bring that out in each other without hating each other. There is a lot of genuine and mutual respect and admiration shared between Rafa and Roger. Full Story

This is for my cousin Cat. I miss her. Especially at Christmas as she’s in Toronto and Jacek and I alternate our holidays – one year here in Vancouver, one year back home. Cat loves Rafael Nadal. And here he is with Roger Federer today posing at a press conference in support of their respective charities. Full Story

This is for Anieka and so many others who’ve been requesting photos of Rafael Nadal. He is currently on holiday in Ibiza with girlfriend Xisca and some friends, hanging out on the beach the other day, obviously totally relaxed. And SO F-CKING CUTE. It has been a great summer for Rafa so far. He won Wimbledon and then Spain won the World Cup. Full Story

Wimbledon started this week so we’re seeing some tennis pics being snapped by our photo agencies. Gives me a reason to post something about a topic where my head is only half way up my *ss and not fully. Here’s world no. 4 ranked Novak Djokovic checking out some chick walking past him at his practice session earlier today. Full Story

My cousin Cat had baby Sasha a month ago. He’s not sleeping. She’s dead tired. Hopefully some Rafa will help a little. It’s the French Open. Rafael Nadal is aiming for a 5th consecutive title at Roland Garros. By his side to support him: girlfriend Xisca. There were rumours they had split a few months ago. Full Story

My beloved cousin Cat is pregnant. Over pregnant. Cat is little, and her baby is big. And he’s taking his sweet time and she’s uncomfortable. Cat also loves Rafa. She’s at home, and she checks a few times a day, so I thought maybe the sight of him, his abs all sweaty, and so sweet in pink at a presser at the Conde de Godo might help the baby along. Full Story

It was only 3 weeks ago when I condescendingly told my cousin Cat to get a handle on herself. She was losing her sh*t over an infant called Rafael Nadal, couldn’t stop texting me about his arms, his girlfriend, his loyalty, his sweetness. Obviously, Michael Phelps has now proven me a hypocrite. Full Story

Rafa on a boat

Topless. With his girl Xisca lounging on a boat, having a “me” day to clear his head and get some loving, as reports are swirling that his parents are divorcing. Oh to be young, rich, and Spanish. Spanish should be a new coveted attribute. Like…I wish I was smart. I wish I was taller. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

You seem to like it so it will continue: more photos of Rafael Nadal at home in Mallorca. Here he is on the green wearing his socks the tennis way but not the golf way. But word is… Rafa is sad. He’s very tight with his family, still lives at home, still sleeps in the same room in his parents’ house (cute!), claims all he ever wants to do is be close to them but now they say his parents are splitting up. Young Rafa is taking it very very hard. Baby needs a virtual hug.

It’s Thursday, new posts all day, remember to refresh!

My cousin Cat spent part of the day yesterday texting me about Rafa Nadal. She’s a hardcore tennis fan and has been a hardcore Rafa quiverer forever. Needless to say, Cat was bursting with pride for her boyfriend…along with all of Spain. Rafa returned home today to a hero’s welcome. Full Story

Dear Gossips,

Please would you indulge me a moment? Because I did it.

6 weeks ago I broke my arm. And still my incomparable trainer Hayley McGowan would not let me use the gimpy-ness to get out of Seek the Peak.

So I "seeked" the peak. And it was a bitch. From the beach to the top of a mountain, 16km and 4100 ft of elevation, I stank in ways I never thought possible. At one point there were six cramps pulsing in each buttock at the same time. But Hayley pushed me through. As did the sight of the 70 year old man who blew past us right before we reached the summit. And my good friend Kiu too who signed up in solidarity, just because.

So I can"t walk today. But I can blog.

First Euro, now Rafa owns Wimbledon. Nadal vs Casillas - who"s in your fantasy bedroom? He looked cute in his tux at the Wimbledon ball, non? As I said a couple of weeks ago, I am a Rafa.

Hola España!

Spain is all the rage. By the way - did you know my Gwyneth spent summers in Spain, did a tour of Spain last summer with Mario Batali, and speaks Spanish?

Of course she does.

It was an epic match on what felt like an epic weekend that started off with George Michael in Vancouver. The old girl still has it! My main gay Darren and I, we had the best time, dancing in the aisles for two and a half hours, and then it was off to Stanley Park to see if Georgey might drop in for a late night pick up. Didn’t see him. Maybe he finally bought a computer, discovered the modernity of a chat room to spice up his sex life.

It’s Monday, am blogging all day, refresh often!
