June is right around the corner and I couldn't be more excited. Sure the turn of the calendar means warmer weather, backyard barbecues, sprouting gardens and summer holidays - but it also means the return of True Blood.
And of course, Alex Skarsgaard as Eric Northman.
If you've followed my blog for, oh, five minutes, you know I'm a huge Alex fan. He may even be my favorite onscreen vampire (but don't tell Ian Somerhalder/Damon.)
I spent most of the weekend preparing my koi fish pond and garden for the summer - two major distractions over the next couple of months. When the weather is nice, I just want to be outside, and until my hubby builds me that writing "cabin" (hint, hint, Jeff), I can't sit in the garden area and work away.
One might assume Alex ranks as a significant distraction, as well.
Normally I'd agree. But this time I'm using him as reward.
With some pretty hefty writing goals and deadlines looming over the next few days, I'm looking for as many dangling carrots as I can get. Alex is pretty much gold plated.
Don't believe me?
How about now? I'd say he makes for a prime Muse Avatar this beautiful Monday.
True Blood premieres June 10. I have a feeling you'll be seeing a lot more of him on my blog over the next few months.
Have a great week!
