“We are Forerunners. Guardians of all that exists. The roots of the Galaxy have grown deep under our careful tending. Where there is life, the wisdom of our countless generations has saturated the soil. Our strength is a luminous sun, towards which all intelligence blossoms… And the impervious shelter, beneath which it has prospered.”

The Best of Friday T&A 2021

by | Dec 31, 2021 | Das Beste Aus | 3 comments

Another year down, another bevy of beauties for us all to admire and enjoy over the previous 52 weeks. As with last year, every other week featured a Slavic lady of some kind, pretty much – my tastes are rather predictable, as Any Fule Kno – and I personally think that this year saw a higher level of quality than preceding ones. (That is just my opinion, of course – you may well feel differently, and indeed some of my longtime readers probably do.)

What follows below is, of course, every post in the Friday T&A series from first to last for 2021. Pick your favourite lady of the year in the comments below. And, of course, my thanks as ever for stopping by to admire the views.

  1. Tyler, the Portly Politico

    A very tough call this year. I’m torn between “Tapas al Fresco” (https://didacticmind.com/2021/06/friday-ta-tapas-al-fresco-edition.html) and “Running Alone Edition” (https://didacticmind.com/2021/11/friday-ta-running-alone-edition.html).

    Both have a certain innocence about them, a “girl next door” look. Tapas looks like she’d be fun to hang out with. “Running Alone” looks like a scantily-clad church mouse.

    What are the thoughts of the collective readership?

      Well, you’re the only one to respond, so it’s hard to say ๐Ÿ˜€

      Personally, my vote goes to #33, but it’s a tough call this year. (It was a little easier last year – Ekaterina Enokaeva just blows the competition out of the water.)

      One former reader, who left in a huff after I called him out on his nonsense, said that I posted mostly weird CGI aliens with a lot of plastic on Fridays. I beg to differ. Overall, I would say that the level of ladies this year is the best that it’s ever been.

        Haha, “CGI aliens with a lot of plastic”—there certainly are some Instathots that fit that description, but you tend to choose the more natural ones.

        I see what you mean re: #33!
