OK. I'm not playin favorites or anything, but in a nod to Bella julieO, I'm givin props to the Ohio State Buckeyes and their 42-39 win over U of Michigan.
Do I really care? Only to the extent that I like julieO, and I listened to the damn drone of the crowd and my husband's exclamations for the duration of today's game.
But the thing I really like about the Buckeyes is that my favorite ESPN College Gameday sportscaster, Kirk Herbstriet, was a total strapping, all-American, dated-(and married)-the-best-looking-cheerleader football hero when he went to OSU.
He's still stuh-RAP-ping -- in a totally grown-up smart-guy jock way -- and the only thing that's gotten me to support my husband's fixation with ESPN College Gameday and college football in general.
So here's to to JulieO, the Buckeyes, and yet another reason why my marriage remains intact.
This week, Pam Rosenthal's "The Slightest Provocation," and Pam's fascinating AuthorView interview, are featured on Romance: B(u)y the Book.
I love the novel, it's gorgeous, and with it, Pam's managed to write a married couple h/hn whose relationship is hotter ten years into the marriage than many romance relationships in first throes of passion.
Let's talk "married" romances, where our hero and heroine are either married from the first, or become married before they've reached the declarative stage of the relationship.
Do they work for you? What are some of your favorites?
Encore! Thank you, Bellas, for your well wishes that last couple days when I was sick. Feeling much better. Amazing what a couple days of reading old romances does for the body and soul.
Encore due! Hope the rest of you who were ailing are feeling better, too.
Encore tre! Mixed signals on Leanne Banks' GuestBlog. We're rescheduling another date when she can stop in and chat!
