Joyfully Recommended and Gerry Butler

more cat pictures

Last night while trying to see if Where There’s Smoke was available in print on Amazon yet, I learned I was Joyfully Recommended again:


Woot! I’m one of her favorite authors!!!

And I stayed up till 2 watching Phantom of the Opera. Yes, I own it, but it was on and I was finishing a scene for the day. (And I still woke at 7:30!!)

And then I started thinking about my favorite Gerard Butler movies. I came up with 8.

1) Tomb Raider 2 – very action-oriented, and that love scene…mmm.


2) Dear Frankie – his burr is so pronounced, and he’s darling with the kid


3) Phantom of the Opera – LOVE his singing, LOVE the Don Juan scene, LOVE the kiss


4) PS I Love You – pure charming mode


5) Nim’s Island – dual roles, as a smart-mouthed adventurer and a nerdy dad


6) 300 – weeellll, you saw the costumes, yes? And the scene with his wife the night before he leaves?


7) Reign of Fire – charming again, especially with the kids, and love the shaggy hair


8) The Jury – a bit of romance, a tortured character, sympathetic


Okay, I know I’ve left some out – Beowulf, Timeline, that soccer movie, the movie with Pierce Brosnan, but I just didn’t like those as much.

What about you? A favorite Gerry movie? A movie you’ll stay up till 2 AM watching even though you own it?

Today I need to color my hair. I spent 45 minutes the other night looking for pictures of Rachel Ray to show the stylist. I could have just gone to HEB and gotten Rachel Ray’s magazine. Who knew?

I need to do laundry and clean the kitchen, but thanks to last night's write-a-thon, I only need 3 pages to meet my goal today. Oh, and I need to finish that blasted contest entry.

I loved 300, and he was very nice in Dear Frankie.

I've been known to watch the Underworld movies late on TV even though I own them.

I loved Dear Frankie, I think that would be my #1. I'm not sure if I could put the others in order. Maybe Reign of Fire, then PS I love wait maybe Tomb Phantom...damn, this is taxing. I think I need a drink.
