Dispatches from the City of Angels

I'm a writer and humorist living in and writing about Los Angeles. You can catch my novel LOSING CLEMENTINE out March 6 from William Morrow. In the meantime, feel free to poke around. Over at my website you can find even more blog entries than I could fit here, as well as a few other ramblings. Enjoy and come back often.

Hey, it's a famous guy!

In our continuing, not-at-all regular feature entitled "semi-famous people that randomly show up in my spin class," we have Rob Estes. And don't think that coming up with that name was easy. All I had to go on was "hey, I know that guy" and "I think he played a cop in something." You cannot type that into Google and expect to get anything useful.

If, however, while scrolling through the nearly endless cast of LAW & ORDER, you're suddenly blindsided with a vague early '90s memory of the show SILK STALKINGS, there's hope. Of course, then you have to admit you're the only person on earth that watched SILK STALKINGS, which sounds like a cheesy romance novel and might as well have been.

Turns out he's also been in MELROSE PLACE, PROVIDENCE, CSI: MIAMI, WOMEN'S MURDER CLUB and, yes, LAW & ORDER: SVU, all of which are much less embarrassing than SILK STALKINGS. But there you have it. That's where my mind goes.

And may I say, Mr. Estes, at 45, you're putting men half your age to shame. The quads and biceps were particularly impressive. Kudos.

I'm guessing he cycles competitively or, at least, used to. He tended to tuck his body during sprints and stretch out his forearms like he was reaching for the aero bar on a race bike, which would explain the quads.

I admit to being a sucker for a physique that comes from doing something, as opposed to spending four hours a day in the gym trying to look like you can do something. Gym rats, not sexy. Mountain bikers, climbers, triathletes, runners - like my husband - way sexy. Of course, that could just be me.
