A week's worth of aMUSEment

I love vampire movies - well, vampires in general really, except the sparkly ones. But until this weekend, I'd never seen Blade.

I don't know how I felt about the movie as a whole, but I suspect when it came out, it was fairly unique. Wesley Snipes plays a convincing vampire slayer, and the girl - whose name I've already forgotten - was pretty good. There were some scenes, like the blood shower, I kind of wish I'd written, and there were some cheese-ball moments I'm glad I didn't.

But (not suprisingly, I'm sure) I absolutely loved STEPHEN DORFF as Deacon Frost.

By now it's obvious I lean towards the bad boys, and in Blade, Dorff does a fabulous job of being the handsome creep in search of world domination. Well, until he turns into that ugly blobby thing at the end.

I choose not to think of him that way, but rather as pictured above.

Nice, right?

The flu, chased by a cold, kept me bed-ridden for the weekend, and I'm home sick today with little hope of accomplishing anything more than a few e-mails. From my - *cough* - extensive research, it doesn't look like Stephen has been doing too much of anything as of late, which means he has time on his hands.

Time enough I'm sure to star in the role of this week's muse avatar.

When I finally kick this evil flu/cold I'm going to have to work extra hard to catch up - on everything. Work. Working out. Writing. Blech. Here's hoping Stephen can hold it together long enough to help me out...

The Book in My Bag Today: Linger, Maggie Stiefvater

*Note to Karen: Ok, so I finished The Night Season on your Kobo (thank you!) and was too sick to return I started Linger, and now I'm kind of addicted. But I promise, you CAN have your Kobo back...<3


  1. Hmm, I like me some Stephen dorff! Sorry you are sick :( I know how you feel! xoxo

  2. Yuck. It doesn't sound like you're having fun. I hope you feel better.

    And thanks for the hottie pic! I've never seen that movie so of course I'm all curious as to what the blobby thing looks like. ;)

  3. Sorry you are so sick...

    I should find my old NightStalker comic books where Blade began. Not only would you have some mighty fine reading material, but you could meet Blade's original vampire hunting team, Hannibal King and Frank Drake. (Both of which are pretty hot for cartoons)By the way? Frost wasn't that hot in the comic, but I was interested to see they made him so young in the movie.

  4. I'm a little hurt you don't remember the girls name :) think of me and it will come to you. I felt the same way when I first watched Blade....Deacon was quite the hottie!

  5. lol! That's ok Dawn, I don' want to come anywhere around your house while your sick! <3 The kobo is yours until you get better, so read your heart out!!

  6. Hope you feel better soon. Though if that muse doesn't brighten your spirits, I'm not sure what will ;)

  7. Hope you feel better soon.

    You know it's really distracting trying to read your posts when you have pics on hot guys on it. ;)

  8. I really hope you feel better fast! And that boy better get SOMETHING on his hands! I'd suggest me, but I think you beat me to it. (I love bad boys too)

  9. JESS - could it be true? Could I have picked a muse avatar you approve of? :-) xoxo

    SUZANNE -'s a pretty ugly blobby thing. Watch the movie, then revert back to this picture. Immediately.

    KAREN - OMG, I suck. *Smacking head with palm of hand.* Don't be hurt. I'm medicated. Love you.

    JAYDEE - Thanks...and you're absolutely right!

    STINA - *evil grin* Then my plan works...distracting everyone from my absentee posts and shoddy writing while sick.

    HART - I knew you were a bad boy girl, too. *fist bump* Thanks for the well wishes.
