Greetings from my Maryland corner of the snow-struck D.C. area! This is Day 3 since I last left home. From the looks of our parking lot an hour ago, Monday will be Day 4.
There are far worse things than being snowbound with the comforts of home, so you won’t hear me complain. It’s a great chance to do those chores I can’t get to normally. It’s also a great chance to ignore those chores in favor of catching up on all those shows and movies eating up space on my DVR. I think we all know which won out.
I spent all of Friday working from home, watching #Snowzilla storm coverage on the news and catching up on some much-needed sleep.
Then I spent all of Saturday hanging with Mark Ruffalo.
For the record, I did start papering my kitchen cabinet shelves. But I also logged about 8 hours watching both of the Marvel Avengers blockbusters and Now You See Me, an excellent heist/caper movie. Mark’s in all of them, and he was good snow-day company. But if you’d asked me to list my Top 3 fantasy men to be trapped with during a blizzard … well, Mark is a fine actor, but he would not have made the cut.
Then I started to wonder, Who would I have picked? Focusing on that made putting in shelf paper much less of a chore, so I chose my “Fantasy Snow Men.” The operative word is “fantasy.” Real-life marital status, sexual orientation, and possible familial ties were immaterial.
- Matt Bomer. No surprise since my WIP novel’s hero is based on him … and my DVR is full because I’m hoarding 19 White Collar reruns. Matt tops my list because he ’s so insanely gorgeous that if we lost power, I would be happy just gazing at him until the thaw instead of watching TV. Plus, he sings. SIGH.
- Shemar Moore. I’ve been crushing on this Criminal Minds hunk since he first joined the cast of The Young and the Restless. That was despite the fact that my aunt swears he’s related to us.
- Joe Manganiello. Why? Raw animal magnetism. If you don’t know what I mean, google him.
