And yet another addition to the family...

My daughter, also known as "The Diva Child" and her boyfriend returned from Wisconsin safely this weekend and they brought "the boy's" dog home with them...his name is Razor and he makes about four of Delilah.

Despite our initial trepidation, they are getting along VERY well...though Miss Delilah doesn't exactly like sharing her toys!

Monday Men...

Today's Monday Man segment is a bit late - mainly because I was having computer issues, and also because I just couldn't decide WHO to feature. Then I saw Sir Roger Moore on The View and his interview was followed by a commercial for the new James Bond movie staring Daniel Craig as James Bond, so I took that as a "sign." (LOL)

So, today's Monday Man is a compilation - The actors who have played Ian Fleming's character, James Bond.

Here they are, Sean Connery, Roger Moore, George Lazenby, Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Dalton, and Daniel Craig - Bond, James Bond. (grin) And, yes, I know that's not the correct order of their appearance as James Bond - deal! (LOL)

Monday Men

Hard to believe it's already November! This year has really gone by quickly, but they all seem to do that the older I get. I hope everyone enjoyed Halloween, I know I did!

Today's Monday Man has one of the most interesting voices I've ever heard. He growls, really, but there's no denying that he's sexy as all get out...

Folks, I give you Vin Deisel!

All Soul's Day

Well, here it is, the day after Halloween. It's All Soul's Day, folks. This is important, especially to me, because it's the day that my first story with Amber Quill Press starts on. Yes, Tales from the Graveyard Shift: Ghouls starts on All Soul's Day and goes from there with appropriately ghoulish delights. (LOL).

It's also November 1, and that means it's NANOWRIMO time. Have you ever done this? The idea is that you write every single day during the month of November, and if you write at least 16,667 words a say, by the end of November you'll have a 50K word novel. Works in theory, but I've never managed to actually make that goal. Life usually interferes in more ways than one.

I'm going to give it another shot this year, though, and we'll see how far I get.

Before I do that, however, I'm going to go see what's left in the candy bowl from all the little ghosties and goblins who came knocking at my door last night and pick out my favorite candies for consumption when the Muse deserts me.

Enjoy your fall, don't overindulge in those sweet treats, read a good ghost story, and don't forget to turn back your clocks tonight.

Until next time...Thanks for playing along!

Monday Man...

In honor of Halloween, this week's Monday Man is none other than Richard Roxburgh - Dracula in the 2004 movie VanHelsing starring another hottie already featured on this blog, Hugh Jackman.

Richard Roxburgh made a GREAT Dracula! If you haven't seen that movie, what on earth are you waiting for? (LOL)

Here's Richard as Dracula...Enjoy!!

Monday Man...

Today's Monday Man is a very versatile actor - he's been in movies and on TV in several series for several different networks. According to IMDB, he was born in England and raised in Australia, but I can't recall hearing him speak with anything other than an American-sounding accent.

His most recent TV show paired him up with another hottie, Wentworth Miller. Oh, what the heck, why not do another two-fer.

Yup, I'm talking about Dominic Purcell and Wentworth Miller, two of the stars of Prison Break.

New Addition to the Family

We have a new addition in our family...

Last week my daughter and her boyfriend went to the local Humane Society and looked at all the puppies and kitties. Last Saturday, we went together and filled out the paperwork to adopt a lovely little puppy named Delilah. She's a Welsh Corgi Mix - or so the label on her cage said. She had surgery on Wednesday (so there won't be any little Delilahs running around), and we were able to bring her home Wednesday night.

She's a little love and has already settled into the family very well. Though this isn't the best picture, may I introduce you to Delilah? She was still a little woozy from the anesthetic when this picture was taken, but today she was more lively and had to greet everyone for pats and kisses.

Monday Man on Tuesday...

What can I say, life interferred with my post yesterday. So, instead of putting up a Monday Man, I'll put up a Monday Man on Tuesday. (grin)

Today's Monday Man is actually a Tuesday Two-Fer (you know what that is, right? Two for the price of one(grin)).

Because I've admitted in the past to being a reality TV show junkie, this Two-fer should come as no surprise...My two-fer is Jeff Probst and Phil Koeghan the hosts of Survivor and The Amazing Race. They're snarky when necessary, they're compassionate, they encourage and commiserate with the contestants, and they've both got great smiles (and Jeff has GREAT dimples)!

Monday Men

Today's Monday Man is in honor of one of the silver screen's most enduring hunks...the one and only Paul Newman. He made women of all ages swoon throughout his career with just one glance from those baby blues. With his passing last Friday, he left behind a wife of 50 years and their three daughters as well as two daughters from his first marriage. My condolences to the Newman Family and for your consideration, some pictures of Paul Newman throughout his career.

Monday Men

Today's Monday Man comes from one of my new favorite TV shows - have you seen Burn Notice? It's all about a CIA agent who gets his cover blown. The first show hooked me and I eagerly set my DVR to record the whole season. Now, whenever I need my Michael (Jeffrey Donovan) fix, I can get it.

He's smart, he's sexy, he's darn good with things that go "boom," and I adore that grin! Plus, his interaction with his mother, his pal Sam and his ex-girlfriend Fiona are fabulous!!

Monday Men

Today's Monday Man is a direct result of me sitting down and aimlessly flipping through TV channels on a fairly quiet Sunday afternoon. I saw this face and just stopped in my tracks...then I had to watch the whole movie(grin).

Today's Monday Man is none other than Oded Fehr - he was so hot in The Mummy Returns with those tattoos on his face, but I like him with short hair, too...

So, here he is...

Monday Men

Hmmm...who should today's Monday Man be? Because I went to the 46th Annual Pow Wow this weekend, I think I'll pick a Native American Actor for today's Monday Man.

His name is Michael Grey Eyes and if you've watched any movies recently with Native Americans involved in them you've probably seen him. To say the man is gorgeous is no understatement...

Enjoy Michael Grey Eyes

Monday Men

Today's Monday Man is one of my favorite actors.

He's extremely versatile - playing everything from an English Lord to a genetically enhanced mutant.

He has the most engaging smile and can make women melt just by looking at them.

If you haven't already guessed, the Monday Man this week is...

Monday Men

Oops! I'm falling down on the job!

There's something about a "bad boy" that gets women revved up. Some of us want what that bad boy represents, but do we really want to try to change him?

Today's bad boy is...

Colin Farrell

He's sexy, he's a little dangerous, he's one of those guys who makes your heart beat a little faster as you wonder if you could 'tame' him just enough to keep him close. After all, you wouldn't want to COMPLETELY settle that bad boy would you? Where's the fun in that?
Besides, can't you look at that face and see just a LITTLE vulnerability? Don't you want to explore that - see if you can find the 'softer' side of that bad boy?
Sure, he'll be a little embarassed about showing it to you at first, but you know he'll figure out how to use that to his advantage at some point...cause he's truly a Bad Boy... and we love him.

Monday Men

Today's Monday Man is another one who is darn good in those roles that require him to wear armor or a kilt or an armored kilt...(sorry, couldn't resist). He also played a soldier in the BBC Napoleonic War film series - the character's name was Sharp, and I think it fits...

Today's Monday Man is none other than SEAN BEAN

Monday Men

Oops! This one didn't post as planned.

The Monday Men for today are...

The USA National Water Polo Team... Enjoy. ;)

WOW! 5 Blue Ribbons from RomanceJunkies!!

WOW! What a great way to start the week. RomanceJunkies reviewer, Cheryl McInnis gave Tales from the Graveyard Shift: Ghouls a 5 Blue Ribbon Review!!!
Here's a 'blurb' from the review and a link to the whole thing...
TALES FROM THE GRAVEYARD SHIFT: GHOULS is a fantastic paranormal romance from a fresh and talented voice. Kacey Smith has created a story that is sexy, funny and highly entertaining. I absolutely loved this book, and encourage anyone looking for a smart and sassy heroine to look no further than Crystal Lafarge. I hope that we will get to read much more about Crystal and her friends in the future. I know that I will be first in line to read the next story!
Now you see why I'm, bouncing around the room! ;)

Monday Men

Hmmm...Okay, I'm totally beat. RWA's (that's Romance Writers of America for those who don't know (grin)) was last week and I got home on Sunday...I'm putting this post together while I wait for my laundry to finish so I can go to bed so I can be halfway intelligent at the day job tomorrow.

Because I'm too tired to even LOOK for the remote, I just have the TV on the same channel it was on when I turned it on...the movie Doom is playing, so for this Monday Man, I pick KARL URBAN.
He's great in those intense roles (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy, The Chronicles of Riddick, Doom, The Bourne Supremacy(I think that's right...), etc.), and in TV roles as well (Cupid & Julius Caesar in the Xena series - and I think he was another character as well, but I'm too tired to look it up(grin)).
So, here's Karl - enjoy...
