RIP Davy Jones

Filed under: hero worship

There’s a shortage of perfect short men in the world. We just lost another one.

I owe at least some of my career to Davy Jones. I perfected the art of writing a sex scene at the age of sixteen or so whilst writing steamy stories about Davy Jones and my best friend, Kathy Love, when I was supposed to be doing my chemistry coursework. I have described Davy Jones naked many, many times. Also George Harrison, who Kathy also fancied. And Donnie Wahlberg, but we won’t go there.

It’s probably a good thing I never met him in real life. The Rock God has, though. He bought Davy a beer. Apparently Mr Jones was very gracious.

I do so love a new obsession.

Filed under: hero worship

Here is the promised picture of Benedict Cumberbatch, who is currently playing the hero of my next book (in which he is an eccentric professor of folklore. Only sexy. Trust me).

Actually, to make up for my unscheduled rant yesterday, I’ve got three pics for the price of one!

A sexy man tossing a Rubik's Cube. Phhhrooooaaarrrr.

Happy Mothers’ Day!

Filed under: hero worship

England and America celebrate Mothers’ Day on different dates which, to me, is evidence that I should be pampered and revered twice. Somehow, I don’t think it’s happening, so as I’m in charge of my own treats today, I’m going to post a photo of Robert Downey Jr.

Ooh Ambassador, with these pictures of Robert Downey Jr you are really spoiling us!

I had a dream last night that I was being forced, untrained, into doing a mission in a space shuttle with an equally untrained Robert Downey Jr as my co-pilot. I knew I was probably going to die. But you know what? I really did not care. In fact, I was pretty psyched.

The Daily Downey, and a plea for help

Filed under: hero worship

I am trying to describe Robert Downey Jr’s naked chest. Just…y’know, because I can. Oh and also my editor asked me to. Really.

Would you mind just having a gander at this photos, and tell me any phrases that come to mind? The more descriptive and specific the better, really.

RDJ's nekkid chest

Or you can just do what I do, and sit here dribbling.

post-book slump

Filed under: about me, hero worship

I’m posting on The Heroine Addicts today, about how I feel now that my book is finished. (Hint: it’s like a limp and chewed-up noodle.) You can read it here.

I’m not even sure if I can bear to post a photo of Robert Downey Jr. It’s just too depressing. I’m not writing about him any more. I have no more excuses to talk to his photo in the morning. I have to spend my time ringing gas engineers instead, about servicing my boiler and connecting my cooker.

Then again, maybe I can find a gas engineer who looks like this:

Iron Man, or gas engineer?

Connect your cooker? Certainly madam. First, I must put on this big iron mask...

The Daily Downey 6

Filed under: hero worship

Hmm.  I’m getting a new website which will be live any day now, and in preparation my very efficient web mistress has upgraded my WordPress.  And I’m not 100% sure about posting pictures.  So what better way than to experiment with a weekend Daily Downey?  I watched Sherlock Holmes again last night.

Under this cushion, madam, lies the key to my release.
Under this cushion, madam, lies the key to my release.

Well, that worked, then.

Unlike the previous photo, I don’t recommend this position for getting revisions done. You can’t use your hands to type, for one thing. You could also quite easily become distracted.

On page 364 of 500. Think I can finish by Monday?
