Another Man ILDF Wednesday, Sep 17 2008 

Those of you who know and love Auntie M might figure out that the above acronym means that if this person walked into my house, there is no question I’d spread my chubby thighs I’d Lay Down For him in a heartbeat, whether he wanted an old hag like me or not.  Doc has already been warned he has no say in this matter and totally gets it.  See what a good guy I’m married to?

After Colin Firth and Hugh Laurie, Daniel Craig  and Johnny Depp, we cannot forget Clive Owen, he of the green eyes and sculpted face.

I just found out he’s a Libra!  As I am, Oct. 8th coming around way too fast.  So that’s why we seem so sympatico, in the words of my friend Nina, who tosses Italian into her conversation the way Green Girl tosses in French  (I took German in HS and rarely toss it anywhere).  just look at how kind and warm he is, and he cleans up well, too:

Did I mention he has green eyes?  I actually modeled one of my detectives after him in a novel.  Although Ned O’Malley doesn’t know it, he’s a clone of Clive, except for the accent.

AND Clive was in the movie Children of Men, which was based on a novel by my idol, P.D. James.  That makes him a double dynamo.  And did I mention those lovely green eyes?

The next time you open a magazine and see a Lancome ad with this gentleman’s face and sexy green eyes looking directly at your triangle bush nether region heart, don’t say I didn’t warn you~

My Current Addictions Wednesday, Sep 17 2008 

Green Girl has tagged me to related my current addictions, based on the five senses.  Here goes:

Smell: When Doc wears “1903” from J Peterman, I want to jump his bones.  Seriously, I just want to keep close to him so I can inhale this scent. It’s like a walk in a forest.

It comes in a yew wood bottle and has a woodsy, leathery scent.  The formal description also says it has citrus notes of bergamot ( the base of Earl Grey tea, my fave) and green notes, and herbal notes of clary sage and cardamom.  All of these scents are found in nature and It rocks, trust me.  {I like it so much I’ve worn it on occasion myself}.

Touch: If my grandson Kevin was here, it would definitely be his chunky arms and legs.  But since he lives in Minnesota, I’ll go with Radar, our Italian Spinone.  The top of his head, his ears, under his chin, and his whole undercarriage are some of the silkiest areas I’ve ever felt on a dog.  In fact, along his back is the only real stiff area of his coat, completely different.

Sight: Doc and Auntie M are fortunate to live on the Pungo River, in northeastern NC.  When I am at my kitchen sink, a large window looks through our screened porch right out to the river, a view I never tire of.  The birds, the passing boats, the water–in all seasons, it’s a sight that never fails to soothe me.  My favorite time is dusk.

TASTE: Coconut cake topped with coconut ice cream–remember, I’m a coconut slut!

SOUND:  There’s something about Itzhak Perlman playing the theme from “Schindler’s List” that moves me to tears, no matter how many times I hear it.  This man makes the violin an extension of his arm and hand.  His masterful interpretation of John William’s melody manages to communicate a sense of bittersweet poignancy I find devastating and emotional.

So that’s it, bared my soul for y’all~
