Happy Eva Mendes Day to all!
Blog Guy, you’re not forgetting what day this is, right? Does December 5 ring a bell?
Of course. On this date back in 1957, Sukarno expelled all the Dutch people from Indonesia.
And who could blame him? But that’s not what I had in mind.
I know, I was just having fun with you. I’m well aware that December 5 is Eva Mendes Day. This year, we caught up with the actress in Marrakesh, Morocco.
Eva! Blog Guy, I have to admit, we’ve been doing this for so long now, I can’t remember why it’s Eva Mendes day.
Me neither, but the important thing is to honor the tradition. Plus, it makes me think of that great song.
Ah. Crosby, Stills and Nash, “The Marrakesh Express.”
No, Barry McGuire, “Eva Destruction.”
