Totally snoggable

Today's a big day. It's Game #1 of the World Series. In case you haven't heard, the Colorado Rockies will be playing the Boston Red Sox. Even bigger, is that it's my husband's birthday. So tonight, we'll be camped out in front of the TV, having ball park food for supper -- brats, nachos and Guiness -- watching the game.

Meanwhile, Lynne has passed along this cute little treat.

So cute! Thanks, Lynne. I'll pass it on to all of my blogging buddies out there! You are all a treat to read, so feel free to grab this little guy and take him over to your place.
Tristi tagged me for this meme: “Ten Literary Characters I Would Totally Make Out With If I Were Single and They Were Real But I’m Not, Single I Mean, I Am Real, But I’m Also Happily Married and Want to Stay That Way So Maybe We Should Forget This.” I guess there's a word for this long definition. It's "snoggable," as in "That guy is totally snoggable." Leave it to Tristi. She's a corker. Well, let's see:
1. Heathcliffe in "Wuthering Heights" (what is it about the dark, brooding type?)
2. Rhett Butler, GWTW
3. Dennys Hatton , Out of Africa (Okay, I never read the book, but if he looks like Robert Redford, dressed in safari, I'm there)
4. The photographer guy in Bridges of Madison County.
5. Mitford's Father Tim -- (haha, just seeing if you're paying attention).
6. John Bourke as protrayed in One Thousand White Women
7. Darcy from Pride & Prejudice -- I'm totally stealing this from everyone's else's lists. I haven't read P&P, but this guy must be a hottie because he's on everyone's list!
8. I'm scanning my bookcases and finding very few books that would apply to this. Lots of books with memorable female characters. Now, ask me about snoggable movie characters and I could come up with an encyclopedia, but my literary tastes must run elsewhere. So, I'll leave this at #8. Dang it. This is going to bug me all day, that I couldn't complete this task.
Well, I've got a busy day ahead of me. This week has been all about appointments. Yesterday, it was the ortho for Luke, the vet for Abby, and today it's the eye doctor for Em. And I have a big project this week -- assembling the class basket for Em's school carnival. Our theme is Chocolate! and my dining room table is loaded with all kinds of chocolate stuff. (And it's ALL calling my name!) I'm off to Hobby Lobby to find a huge basket!

It sounds like you're going to have a great time tonight for your hubby's birthday! Happy Birthday blessings to him~!

Happy Birthday to Mr. Karen. It sounds like you have a pleasant evening planned.
I found a nice recipe site:
They have a feature where you can put in up to three ingredients you have on hand, and it will suggest recipes you can use. I baked a buttermilk cake Monday, and needed to find something to do with the remaining buttermilk. Take a look!

Happy birthday to your hubby! Go Rockies! Dom just told me that on TV they're predicting a sweep by Boston. No Way - Rockies in 6!

A chocolate basket sounds yummy! AND you are a treat!!!

Becky said...

What is so funny about Father Tim. He kisses. And he also makes the best pork roast in town, grows the most beautiful roses, and can discipline the sorriest of pre-teens. I'd vote for him anyday!!!

And go Rockies. Even from way down here in Florida.

I'm excited for y'all tonight! Hope it's fun.
And Father Tim, I was paying attention but I love Becky's comment, cute!
Chocolate is the best theme ever.
I'm home and trying to catch up on everything.

Happy birthday to your hubby! What a nice way to celebrate. Hope the Rockies win for him! Did you say your table is covered with chocolate - oh, temptation...

Tristi Pinkston said...

Thanks for playing! I'm with you on the movie thing -- that's easier for me, too.

I'm sorry I can't take credit for "snoggable," though -- I got that from someone else. I'd love to have been the one to coin the phrase, though!

Congrats on the award, I love reading your blog :)

I don't think I could come up with that many literary dudes - you did great!
