humor and a brogue, you can't go wrong

I've made a concentrated effort to ignore Liam and move on. He's a pretty boy but he's a boy. To encourage said removal, I've had my eye out for more mature "candy" and have discovered something. Several of the men who appeal to me come from the same geographical location as young Liam. Like Colin Ferguson (American, but ancestrally you get the picture). And that Scottish man from Made of Honor.

Different countries, same dart-shot on the globe. Perhaps it's the accent. I'm not sure. Blonds and redheads aren't my typical sort, but bloody-hell these men are fantastic.


Other shit: Haven't finished She's Got and I'm off my personal calendar. Hm. Have I taken on too much? I had anticipated another 3k and two quick scenes to complete. However the characters are not in agreement with where they need to be when the second to last scene begins, therefore throwing off the entire ending. Will have to go back, toss and rewrite in order to get there, I reckon. Perhaps today they will oblige.


Boss is out of the office and the woman who sits behind me is off on projects. That means I can work on my books without prying eyes. Could not have planned it better. I might even catch up on my writing calendar goals. One can only hope.


Note to self: "Mia, quit blogging. Get back to work."

I'm not usually one for red-heads, but, oooooh boy, Kevin McKidd is the exception! Good luck getting back on track. I can't even find my writing calendar anymore. :)

It's the accent. And what is a writing calendar?

A man with a Scottish accent and I'm doomed. Doomed I tells ya. Spent a month climbing in the Highlands last fall - a magical place - and it didn't matter what anyone said to me - all they had to do was say something and I grinned like an idiot. The Scottish brogue is the most romantic accent on the entire planet.

Amber-me either, but there are a few...

Anny, Julia-It has to be the accent. I could listen to it all day.

Nope, nope, nope. I love redheadedmen. It's all one word. Redheadedmen.
