I’ll be back…

…just as soon as I find my feet and manage to touch sides. With moving to a new country, starting a job, filling in reams of paperwork and everything else (including leaving for work just after 5am and getting home late)…I’m not managing to find any time to read, watch movies or just relax. So…until I manage to regroup I’ll be lying low for a while.

I’ll still be doing the Now and Then Blogathon with Realweegiemidget Reviews and the 2 Reel Quirky Cat (P)reviews but I can’t promise much more. I mean, I need time to watch movies, read and listen to music in order to blog about such topics…and I’m finding no time at all.

Five Flaming Hotties

FiveFlamingHottiesNew.pngIt’s time to go back to teenie days. To be shallow. Of course this post was bound to come up at some point. I mean, I’m human after all. Besides, Realweegiemidget and I always end up on a tangent around eye candy (you can find hers here). And..based on our interactions, she thinks she knows who my five flaming hotties are…little does she know…

In fact…this post may have some entries on it that may come as a bit of a shock surprise…I’m really opening myself up for judgement here..what am I doing????? Oh well…here goes anyway….

Just to be clear though…this is about HOTTIES and not favourites. It’s for us to be shallow and have a good gaze stare drool appreciation.

Well…here we go…the five stars (screen and I’ve taken the liberty of one musician and one sportsman) that feature on my hotties list…in no particular order..oops, wait…just to warn you…you may think I’m nuts (if you didn’t already) but we all have our moments:

Sizzling number 5: I’d seen him around a few times but was only really introduced to him in The Bourne Supremacy. I seem to be the one who never “falls” for the lead. He’s the only one I noticed despite his small-ish role. He’s just fine to look at. And has a cheeky, mischievous smile. What more should I say? Here’s Karl Urban:

Flaming 4: Let me say this…I support(ed) any team which has this goalie. Where were we introduced? Who knows? Some World Cup or other match. Not sure. Don’t really care. Just that in the crowd, of all the players, my eyes zoned into this one. As is the case with hotties…can’t say what the appeal is…it’s just there. May I introduce Diego Benaglio

Gorgeous 3: Here I’m allowing myself a woman who I think is absolutely beautiful and if I was a male, would deem her “hot”…

The first role I’d seen her in was Serendipity and her role, her screen presence came across as genuine and real which made her appearance even prettier. Then came Underworld…oh my…she’s just so stunning (and let’s face it, hot). I wish I could pull off leathers like she does. So, why do I like her…purely because of her looks and the roles she takes on. Kate Beckinsale

Oh gosh…I really need to think who I should put down…uhm, Fassben…no, Gregory Pe…uhm,  oh…Daniel Cr…no..here you go….

Hottie number 2: This is the one you didn’t see coming. There’s just something about this man. Oh swoon. I was even in the front of the concert…for those of you who know him, here’s my hottie Richard Z. Kruspe

I “met” him on the cover of a CD. Something just appealed. Not sure what and why. Then along came the live show DVDs (see, so, I’ll just say it is film in some form) and just like that I was a goner…there’s just something about him. His stage presence. The way he holds himself while playing that guitar. Don’t they say…there’s something about guitarists? Well, even if they don’t…I have something for guitarists.

Which makes the last hunk I can pick…whew…this is really hard…but let me go with the man I’ve always liked to watch since my teenage days. He was my crush since I spotted him in Robin Hood Prince of Thieves and to this day I have a soft spot for him. His voice…there’s a gruff softness, his looks, and despite his wild past (supposedly) he still comes across as nice. Of course it is…Christian Slater

Hmmm…I seem to have a trend going looking at it. I would have added Shane West to the mix too…if I was going for an all-male lineup…

maybe James Marsden too…

What’s your favourite….?

…that one movie that you never have to think about. Not even for a second? The one you watch at least once a year. That special movie that never ever loses the number one spot on your favourites list?

Mine…without a moment’s hesitation…

The Last of the Mohicans

Here is a stunning clip I found (it does contain spoilers)…enjoy. *sigh* I’m in urgent need of another watch…

As for the soundtrack…oh my. It is simply stunning. And without even having the visuals present, evokes such emotion. I can totally lose myself with this wonderful music playing. Everything else is forgotten.

A Colourful Reminder…

…that it’s almost time to bring all your colours for

The Colours Blogathon

8 & 9 September 2017

 

It’s not too late to join in. Anything colourful goes. In any language. And I’m happy to push the boundaries…chocolate and rose are colours in my book.

Here’s the original post…Announcing the Colours Blogathon

If I’m distant…it’s not you…

…it’s me.

So, just to let you know that if I’m not commenting or liking posts as often as I used to – I haven’t lost interest. I’m just totally snowed under (in packing boxes) at the moment. Lots on the go (I’ll update you all soon-ish). Any Blogathons I’ve committed to, I’ll still contribute to and I’ll try be “around” as much as possible for other posts.

Just give me another week or so…
