Last Prison Break until March?

Say it isn't so!
Alas, my sources, (who have been wrong a time or two), say it's true. {{{sob, sniff}}}
But, even if they are wrong, (which wouldn't surprise me), I read they are giving P.B the kiss of death...moving it to another night and time slot.
This is a practice of the National Broadcast System I just do not understand. It has caused the demise of more decent shows than I can even begin to name...Fastlane, Arrested Development, The Kindred...to name a few. I only hope that Michael, Lincoln and the rest of the gang can tuff it out, because Prison Break is one of the best shows I've seen in...well...since Lost's debut last season. :-)
In honor of what could be the last show until March, I've posted some pics of my favorite inmate. Enjoy!

"Kiss me right here on my tattoo."

"Look at me. I want you. Only you."

Hehehe. :-)
Until next time...

First of all,

I'd like to thank "Anonymous" for mentioning that Hans Matheson was indeed in PBS's The Virgin Queen...just a week later and a character different than his fan site had posted. GRRR.
I caught the tail end of it though, and managed to tape his delicious mug for future drooling purposes! Thanks again "A"!! :-)

Second, in celebration of Sawyer and Kate being reunited, (hopefully!) on LOST tonight, I'm posting hottie Josh Holloway. Enjoy!

....................."Saddle up, Cowboy. It's ridin' time. Heeya!"

Until next time...

My hubby finally read the unedited copy of my fantasy romance novel, A MAGICAL ENCOUNTER...release date 2007.
He LOVED it!! Said it was the best romance novel he's ever read. And yes, I've made him read at least five-including my all-time favorite one.

Not only did he say he couldn't put my book down, it almost made him cry. He liken's it to Lord of the Rings, because of the evil beings and elves...but with sex.
Elf sex. :-)
Is there any better kind? :-0
To celebrate my hubby's wonderful review, I've posted the ultimate hot elf, and muse for my hero, Legolas.


Until next time...

What's up?

Okay, I'm kinda ticked off today. Last night I stayed up late to watch the Virgin Queen on PBS...and you know what? NO HANS! Not even a cameo. Can you believe it? I was royally cheesed off. So I stayed up even later watching Dr. Zhivago to get my Hans fix for the night. {{{sigh}}} he is sooooo wonderful in that movie. I adore Kiera Knightly too.
Anyhoo, if anyone stayed up late to see Hans as Robert at my behest, I apologize. But know you weren't the only one duped. And if anyone actually liked the Virgin Queen, feel free to rail on me for hating it. :-)

Until next time...

November 13, 2005...The Virgin Queen

Not me! Elizabeth I.
Masterpiece Theatre, on PBS, is airing the first of the two part series, THE VIRGIN QUEEN, tonight. Now, normally this wouldn't be Blog-worthy. But there just happens to be the cutest little "piece" on the Masterpiece show...Hans Matheson. The pictures below are from his other PBS stint, playing the lead in DR. ZHIVAGO. Mmmm Mmmm Good!
Tonight he plays the Queen's life long love interest, Robert Dudley...Earl of Leicester.
Enjoy the pic's, and the show!

Until next time...

November 5, 2005..."Sweet intoxication"

Thanks to Ashley Kath-Bilsky, fellow writer and "Lady in Waiting," I can post these delectable pictures of my favorite opera ghost...better known as Gerald Butler.

"Shh..just follow me into the bedroom.
I have something I want to show you."

"Come. Sit on my lap and tell me what you want for christmas."

Let's all heave a collective {{{sigh}}} and give a big shout out to Ashley for supplying these
photos! For more on this handsome Scotsman, visit her wonderfully designed site

November 4, 2005..."It's Friday night...

...And I have to work all weekend." Wait. That's not how the song goes. Oh well?

Today I am working on finishing my second book, THE MARQUIS AND THE MISTRESS. So far, so good. I'm on chapter nine, approximately 50,000 words in. I'm scheduled to have it completed and ready to send out by December 30th...my Grandpa's birthday. He passed away a few years ago, but continues to be my inspiration. ;-)

Anyway, tonight is Friday!! They are having a Hollywood inspired wine tasting at our local liquor store...Francis Ford Coppola, here we come! I've already bought the cheese and crackers, so all we need is a few bottles of the good stuff. I can't wait to relax with some good friends and good wine.

Oh and I'm finally getting my hair highlighted tomorrow. "Bye-bye" boring bankers wife brown! I'll post a picture on Sunday for y'all! Have a great weekend!

Until next time...

November 3, 2005...Well crap.

I just got a letter from a big NY publisher, requesting the book a just sold!! Kicking myself in the arse a bit for that slick move. But then again, there is no guarantee with a request. They may read it, hate it and then I've gone and wasted a year+ waiting for said rejection. This was the smart thing to do...right?

Urgh! I need some distraction. Any excuse to post this hottie tottie, (or is that a drink?)

I said it before and I'll say it again...
I love this show almost as much as I love his tattoos.
{{{me mopping up drool}}} ;-)

Until next time...
