Tuesday Topics - Ten Sexiest Men Alive

Today begins the next batch of Tuesday Topics hosted by Jenn @ Quirky Pickings.  Right off the bat, we're jumping in with both feet and discussing the Ten Sexiest Men Alive.  Here is my list:

Sam Heughan

I only know Sam from the STARZ series, Outlander, which is based on the books by Diana Gabaldon.   Sam plays the tall, rugged, fierce, red haired, kilt wearing Scotsman, Jamie Fraser.  Many fans of the books disagree with the casting of Sam as Jamie, but I do not.  To me, he is Jamie Fraser, so much so that I often cannot even remember his real name.


Chris Daughtry

Despite my natural inclination to gravitate towards men with long hair (see a former post about this here), I have made an exception for Chris Daughtry, the former American Idol contestant and front man of the band, Daughtry. I find his bald head, facial hair, piercing dark eyes, and his rock star charisma very sexy.  



Brad Pitt

Over three decades, Brad's appearance in real life and in movies has been extremely varied. There have been times in which I found him extremely sexy and other times in which I have not. Case in point: I think he was extremely sexy in Legends of the Fall but not in Fight Club.  Granted he had some kicking' abs in the latter, but I still didn't find him sexy.



Charlie Hunnam

Charlie caught my eye as the outlaw motorcycle renegade, Jax Teller, on Sons of Anarchy.  I was very excited when I heard that he was to play Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Gray and equally as disappointed when I learned he had pulled out of the project.   




Colin Ferrell

Like Brad Pitt, there have been certain times in Colin Farrell's  career in which I have found him sexier than others.  In Miami Vice, as detective Sonny Crocket, I found him especially sexy.  I do like Colin with longer hair and some facial hair.





Clay Matthews

Clay is the only athlete who made my list and, truth be told, had it not been for his long, golden hair, I'm not sure he would've ever showed up on my radar.  I find his tall, muscular body, broad shoulders, long hair, and funny sense of humor (from what I've heard) extremely sexy.




John Stamos

I didn't know John Stamos when he was on General Hospital, so our first introduction was when he played Uncle Jesse in the 1980s sitcom, Full House.  He was good looking then, but I didn't find him sexy like I do now.  He has aged extremely well, like a fine wine, and I find his more defined features extremely sexy.



Patrick Dempsey

I remember Patrick Dempsey in the 1987 movie, Can't Buy Me Love, and, in my opinion, he wasn't that attractive.  He was actually rather nerdy looking and not a sexy way.  Time has been good to Mr. Dempsey, allowing him to evolve from a dorky teen to a very sexy man with haunting blue eyes and a great smile.  



Alex Biffin

Unless you've seen the all-male revue, Thunder From Down Under, you probably have no idea who Alex Biffin is.  When I saw TFDU last summer in Vegas, from the opening number, my eyes were fixed on the tall, dark, and handsome Aussie.  I honestly don't remember what any of the other men in the show looked like because Alex had my full attention.


Jon Bon Jovi

When I was a teenager, I lusted over Jon  as only a hormone-infused teenage girl could.   Posters bearing his image covered my bedroom walls and I spent hours gazing at his long, disheveled locks and his wickedly, sexy smile.  Jon exuded sex appeal.

Jon lost his long locks in the early 1990s. Within the past 2 years or so, he quit coloring his hair and embraced his gray, which he pulls off very nicely, in my opinion.  Jon has transformed from a long haired, leather pants wearing, singer of a rock-n-roll band to a refined, graying philanthropist, who still fronts the rock-n-roll band that bears his name.




Which man/men would make your list of sexiest men alive?  I'm very curious to hear your thoughts.

Five Things I Haven't Done... Yet


It's been said that imitation is the highest form of flattery.   This post was stolen inspired by Micah @ Unabashedly Me.  Without any further ado, here are five things that I haven't done... yet.


Been pregnant
I feel pretty certain that this will not change.

Bungee jumped off of any perfectly good structure
Again, I feel pretty certain that this will not change anytime in the foreseeable future.

Watched The Sound of Music
I've seen the stage musical, but not the movie starring Julie Andrews.  If the opportunity presented itself, then I might watch it.  Let's just say that I'm not opposed to watching it.

Attended the Kentucky Derby
Here's the interesting thing - I live less than five miles away from Churchill Downs, where the Kentucky Derby is held every May.  Even with my geographic proximity, I don't think I will ever attend.  It's rather pricey and very, very crowded.  I'm very content continuing the tradition with my speech path buddies of attending Thurby (the racing that occurs on the Thursday before the Derby).

Visited all 50 States
I'm working on this one.  I'm up to 33 and now that I've lifted the time constraint (it used to be before I turned 50, but now it's simply before I die), I think, I hope that I'll change this one day.


What's something you haven't done yet?  Whatever it is, do you think you'll ever do it?  Please feel free to share.

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!

Currently... (Vol. 20)


Wishing...  my Aunt J a Happy 60th Birthday!  (If you're reading this, your card is in the mail!)

Keeping...  all the folks of Houston, the Texas coast, those in Irma's path, and the people of the Pacific Northwest in my thoughts and prayers.  

Wondering...  where in the world August went!  Don't get me wrong, I'm not complaining, for August is not my favorite month.  I'm just surprised at how fast the month flew by! 

Admitting...  that one month into the current school year, I still can't remember the names of a couple of the new teachers at my school.

Recovering...  from a fun, but tough white water rafting trip this past weekend. With low water levels and a persistent wind trying to push up back upstream, it was a hard paddle.  Interestingly enough, I was the only female in our raft which, in my opinion, makes me a total badass...  a badass with sore shoulders and upper arms, but a badass none-the-less. ;)
  

Acknowledging...  that I haven't finished the first round of Erin's book challenge like I had hoped I would.  Oh, well...

Reading... (Yes! Like really reading, with my eyeballs reading!) the book I Found My Heart in West Virginia by Chelsea Falin.

Listening to...  the audiobook Rewinder by Brett Battles and to the album From A Room: Volume 1 by Kentucky native, Chris Stapleton.



Watching...  The Guestbook on TBS (Thursday 10:30pm ET).  It's hilarious!

Anxiously awaiting...  Season 3 of Outlander. THREE DAYS PEOPLE!!! THREE!!!



Feeling...  proud for keeping my competitive beast at bay and not going crazy in the current step challenge that's taking place at work.  (If you remember, I participated in the spring step challenge back in April and May and walked 203 miles in 29 days...  which is completely insane!)

Refocusing...  my weight loss efforts.  Since hitting the plateau back in March, I admit that I have kind of slacked off a bit and not been as mindful about everything I've been eating. 

Adjusting...  to being "that" person at work who is always cold.   It's a weird turn of events after having been "the hot natured one" for so very long.

Feeling...  concerned and a little nervous over the changes that might be made to Kentucky state employees' retirement (public school employees, like myself, included).

Preparing...  to make calls, send emails, and make my voice heard on this issue. 

Amused...  by this painted rock that I found inside Panera Wednesday evening. The instructions say that I can either keep it or re-hide it.  I'll hid it somewhere this weekend.  #LouisvilleRocks 


Amazed...  that I won the $50 Second Chance drawing in the Discover Our History Photo Scavenger Hunt sponsored by the Wyoming County Historical Museum back home!  I rarely win stuff like this!



August in a Snapshot:

1) My new weight loss comparison picture, 2) chicory in the park, 3) my new fridge
4) First fallen acorn, 5) rafting with friends on Salt River, 6) viewing the eclipse with my officemate, M
7) a thistle in the park, 8) at the Louisville Slugger Museum with my BFF and her husband, 9) dinner on the river with R


What have you been up to lately?  Happy Thursday to you!  Thanks for stopping by!

Tuesday Topics - Two Ways to Get Out of a Funk


I think I need to preface this by saying that I don't, nor have I ever suffered from depression and I won't even begin to pretend that I understand what it's like. What I'm referring to in this post is not depression, but merely a funk.  

I do suffer from varying degrees of seasonal affect disorder, which I have affectionately dubbed as my "Winter Funk."   I also get into "I'm Disgusted With the World Funks" occasionally.  Here are two things I do to help get out of a funk or head one off at the pass before it gets out of hand.

Physical Movement

On August 13, the day after the tragic events that took place in Charlottesville, VA, I woke up with a heavy heart and a mind full of sorrow, disappointment, anger, and fear.  Knowing how events like this sometimes trigger a funk, I immediately got up, laced up my walking shoes, and took myself to the park so I could hit the pavement.  During the second, third, and fourth miles of my six mile walk, I found myself almost running as my mind churned away, trying to make sense of the events that had happened the day before.  When I finished, the world hadn't changed, the events of the days before had not been erased, and I had not made any sense of the senseless acts.  But, I felt better and my mind was more clear because I had processed things.

I discovered how beneficial physical movement is to helping me ward off a funk or to help get me out of a funk about a decade and a half ago after a difficult breakup.  Heartbroken and devastated, I worked out my sorrow and my frustrations in the community pool, where I swam dozens of miles in the months following the breakup.  I remember telling a friend, who had commented on the amount of swimming I was doing at the time, that the breakup made me feel like I had been taken out into the middle of the ocean, thrown over board, and had been told to "sink or swim."  So, I swam.  And swam.  And swam. Several months after I started, I realized that the man who had broken my heart had finally left me, or rather, that I had released him.  I could no longer hear his voice, I could no longer remember his laugh, I could no longer remember what his touch felt like.  Somewhere in that pool, during one of the countless laps I swam, I had gotten over him.

Spending Time in Nature

I grew up in the Appalachian mountains in the southern coalfields of West Virginia.  The mountains were prominent part of everyone's everyday lives because they were literally everywhere.  I lived on a mountain and went to community schools that were located in a valley between the mountains.  To get to school, I had to go down the mountain; to get home, I had to go up.  To go to church, I had to traverse several mountains.  And for years, my grandfather and father went down in to the earth, underneath the mountains, to extract coal.  No matter where I looked, be it out of any window in my high school, from the porch of my grandparents' house, or from my window of my childhood bedroom, there were mountains.  Because I grew up surrounded by mountains, I grew up surrounded by nature.

I have discovered, especially after moving out of Appalachia, how important being in nature is to my mental well being.  During trying times, I find myself drawn to sitting on the deck, listening to the birds.  I also find myself drawn into the depths of my local park, where I am surrounded by thick, green trees and open skies.  When life gets particularly difficult and I need a time out, I retreat to my childhood home, where I sit in my favorite chair on my parents' deck, and absorb the sights and sounds of nature that are all around me.  

I don't know why or how, but being connected with nature makes me happy and it helps me clear out the mental clutter that mind sometimes collects.  It's a connection that is particularly powerful, but very hard for me to describe.


As I've mentioned earlier, I suffer from seasonal affect disorder and it typically hits in January and last through March.  This past winter, given the new exercise routine I had adopted, I spent more time exercising  and exercising outdoors.  I can honestly say that my winter funk was probably the mildest its ever been. I attribute much of that to making physical movement a priority in my life and being outside as much as possible.

What are some things that you do or incorporate into your life to help you get out of a funk?

As always, thanks for stopping by.

The Color Purple - Wordless Wednesday (Vol. 19)

Tuesday Topics - Three Casting Mistakes in Films



Kevin Costner as Robin Hood
Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves (1991)


This is probably the first miscasting that I can remember.  Now, don't get me wrong - I like Kevin Costner.  I liked him in Bull Durham, Dances with Wolves, JFK, The Bodyguard, and in the made for TV Hatfields & McCoys.  But, in the 1991 mega-hit, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, not so much...  My complaint is this - in a movie set in medieval England, where everyone had some sort of non-American English accent, the lead character sounded distinctly American.  It was just weird.


Jason O'Mara as Joe Morelli
One for the Money (2012)


By the time I saw this movie when it was released, which was based on a novel of the same name written by Janet Evanovich in 1994, I had read it and the next 16 books in the Stephanie Plum series.  Needless to say, I had already formed a very solid image of what Stephanie Plum's Italian on-and-off again police officer boyfriend should look like.  Nothing against Jason O'Mara, but he just didn't match my mental image.  I imagined someone with darker hair and darker features.   


Jamie Dornan as Christian Grey
Fifty Shades of Gray (2015)


This is another instance where I read the book before I saw the movie and  had formed a distinct image of what the young business entrepreneur and red room of pain dominant, Christian Grey, should look like.  Jamie Dornan is handsome and all, but there's just something about him that didn't jive with me. I envisioned someone a little more muscular with unruly, dark coppery hair who exuded more bad boy heat.  I know Christian Grey was educated and refined, but Jamie Dornan, in my opinion, was just a little too refined.


What do you think?  Do you have a film character that you think was miscast?

Have a wonderful Tuesday!  Thanks for stopping by!

My Happy List - What's Up Weekend Vol. 3


~ My long lost husband took me on a date to see The Glass Castle, which was excellent by the way, and to dinner on Saturday.  (He's been working a lot lately, that's why I referred to him as long lost...)


~ On Sunday, I spent the afternoon kayaking with some of my friends.  It's been about a month since I had been and the time on the water was wonderful.

~ Although I didn't see the eclipse in totality, we experienced 95.42% coverage where I work,  I'm very glad that I was able to experience this unusual event (and thankful that my school district supplied us with approved viewing glasses).  For me, the most interesting aspects of the experience didn't involve looking up at the sky - the temperature dropped noticeably, it turned somewhat dusk-like although the sun was overhead, and the crickets started chirping.

~ The milder temperatures that came midweek allowed my walking buddy and me to walk outside.  It's been so hot and humid the past couple of weeks that we've resorted to walking inside with the air conditioning.


Have a wonderful Friday and an even better weekend!

If We Were Having Coffee... (Vol. 13 - Mama Always Told Me Not to Look Into the Eyes of the Sun...)


If we were having coffee on this sunny, Saturday afternoon, we'd be confined to sitting inside and I'd apologize, for it really is a beautiful day.  I must stay inside, though, so I can listen for the front door.  LG&E is supposed to come today and take away my old, garage refrigerator that died back in July, but as it turned out, really didn't die; it just threw a breaker we didn't know about.  Once we made that discovery, we had already purchased a new kitchen fridge, with plans to relegate the existing kitchen fridge to the garage to replace the one that died, but didn't really die.

I've just returned from my weekly walk in the park and I'm a sweaty mess.  I'd apologize again, for I know I stink to high heavens.  I had hoped to make it home in time to take a shower before R left, but I didn't.  "We've already missed one scheduled pickup about a week and a half ago," I'd say.  "Knowing my luck, as soon as I'd get in the shower, LG&E would arrive."  I'd thank you for your understanding and would be sure to sit as far away from you as I could.

As we settled in at the kitchen table or on the sofa with our drinks, you'd hear me softly singing this snippet of a song:

Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun.  But, mama, that's where the fun is...

As soon as the last word would escape my lips, I'd abruptly stop, grunt a little under my breath, and quickly apologize for the third time.  I'd tell  you that probably will not be the last time you hear that lyric come out of my mouth today. "There's been a lot of excitement here about the upcoming solar eclipse.  Even though we're not going to get totality like they are in Hopkinsville, we're slated to get something like 96% totality."  Anyway, once we started talking about it at school and teachers started making preparations for the viewing, this song lyric popped in my head and I've been singing it ever since.  "Damn ear worm."

You'd look at me in surprise and ask how long I've been back to work.  "Two and a half weeks," I'd say.  "We went back August 2.  We were one of the first districts in the area to start back.  But, instead of having just one week for fall and spring break, we'll now get two.  Going back earlier will be well worth it then. October is a fabulous month to have time off."

You'd ask how my school year is going so far and I'd tell you that's it's been super busy.  I've been a speech pathologist for 17 years and the caseload of kids I have this year is probably the most complex I've ever had in my entire career.  

I have at least half a dozen students who have autism, one of which is predominately nonverbal and extremely defiant.  I have one kid who, unfortunately, only has half his teeth.  "Seriously, the kid has ten teeth; I counted," I'd say with an exhausted sigh.  "No wonder we can barely understand him."  Truth is, I'm not exactly sure how I am going to help him be more intelligible when we are working with such limited oral structures.  All I know is that everyone is looking to me for answers and I don't know what to do.  I can't make his adult teeth come in any faster.  I'd continue and tell you about the child who not only has some moderate-severe articulation issues going on, but who also stutters.  And, then there is the kid who has such severe mental health issues that he's afraid to walk into my therapy room for some reason.

With that, I'd go silent, letting all that sink in.  "It's going to be a very interesting year, that's for sure," I'd finally say.

The backup beeping of a box truck would break the silence.  I'd look out the garage door and see a large truck backing down my  driveway.  I'd excuse myself and go outside to greet them.  A few minutes later, I'd return, looking very relieved and singing.  

Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun.  But, mama, that's where the fun is...

"See?  I told you," I'd say with a laugh.  "I hope once this eclipse is over that this song leaves me."  

Sitting back down, I'd tell you that they're loading it up now and that I'm very happy to see it go. Since August 5, the day when our new refrigerator was delivered, our old kitchen refrigerator has been sitting in my living room plugged in. "Yes, I've had three refrigerators plugged in and running for the past two weeks and one of them was in my direct line of sight in the living room," I'd say with a laugh.  It was just easier to move the old kitchen fridge into the living room and transfer the food into the new fridge once it was cold and ready.  Then, it just made sense to keep the old kitchen fridge where it was, because it was at least out of the way, until the garage fridge was taken off and we could then move the old kitchen fridge into the garage.  "Did you get all that?"  I'd ask and then we'd both laugh.

As we continued our visit, I'd share about how I passed a milestone earlier this month by having committed to a healthier lifestyle for one full year.  I'd also tell you about how I'm refocusing my efforts to lose more weight after having plateaued at 38 pounds.  I'd then share about the newest walking challenge at work.  I was on the fence as to whether I wanted to participate in it or not, but I decided at the last minute to go ahead.  "I'm just not allowing the competitive beast that reared its ugly head back in April during the spring challenge to rise up again."  You'd look at me skeptically.  "I know what you're thinking, but I'm completely serious."  Honestly, I have no idea of what place my school's team is in or what place I may be in.  I only signed up for the points that I get for joining a team and a for participating in a challenge.  My walking buddy, on the other hand, is a woman on a mission.  From what she said the other day at lunch, she's in it to win it, or at least to finish in the top three.  "I wish her all the best and I'll cheer her on every step of the way.  I'm just not walking with her every step of the way this time around."  

I'd glance at the clock, noting the time.  You'd look as well, saying how you must get going.  "I really must shower," I'd say, "for I can't stand myself any longer." I'd thank you for coming by, for it was lovely to hang with you this afternoon, and I'd walk you out.  As we walked out to your car, you'd hear me singing.

Mama always told me not to look into the eyes of the sun.  But, mama, that's where the fun is...

"Damn ear worm..."


Thank you for joining me for me latest installment of IWWHC.  Have a wonderful Saturday and weekend.

Tuesday Topics (Not on Tuesday) - Five Things I Love About My State



Kentucky's proximity to West Virginia (my home state).  It broke my heart when I left West Virginia after finishing college, but I it was something I simply had to do.  Like so many of my friends, I left for economic opportunities.  I've been gone for almost 18 years now and there's not a week that goes by in which I don't miss my family and the mountains.  I'm very thankful that I'm able to drive to my hometown in about 5.5 hours from where I live in Kentucky.

Kentucky's four distinct seasons




How passionate Kentuckians are about the Kentucky Derby, bourbon, and basketball.  I'll admit, this passion has driven me crazy on numerous occasions and my husband's passion for Kentucky basketball, in particular, has caused us some marital strife during our 14 years, but I do admire it.  

The geographic diversity.  To the east are the Appalachian mountains.  To the west is the mighty Mississippi.  In the middle, is the lush, green rolling Bluegrass, where I live.  I love the fact that I can get in my car and go 2-3 hours in any direction and be in a a different geographical region.

The people.  As I mentioned before, it really broke my heart when I left my beloved home state nearly 18 years ago.  Something that made the transition much easier were the people and culture of Kentucky, which are very similar to that of West Virginia.  Honestly, if the people hadn't been as great as they were, especially during my first couple of years here, I don't know if I would've stayed.  

What is something you love about your state?  Please feel free to share.  I love audience participation!  Have a great Friday and an even better weekend!

Tuesday Topics (Not on Tuesday) - Six Best Country Songs


First, I feel as if I must disclose something.  


I'm not a fan of country music.  

I've listened to it randomly during times in my life, but never for long periods. I've always had some friends who are country music fans and they've exposed me to various country songs over the years.  Anyway, it's safe to say that my experience with country music is very, very limited and because of that, coming up with this list was almost as hard as coming up with my destination list. 

If you are a regular reader, you know that I like categories.  After several false starts, I decided a familiar approach was needed. So, instead of trying to list the six best country songs ever or the six best country songs that I can remember or the six best country songs that I own, I came up with six categories and filled them accordingly.


Best Country Song 
(To Elicit a Deafening Feminist Roar)
"Goodbye Earl" by Dixie Chicks



In the summer of 1999, I attended Lilith Fair, the traveling music festival that featured female acts.  The Dixie Chicks, despite being relatively new at the time, but were a main stage act. "Goodbye Earl" hadn't been released as a single yet, so when they played it, it was the first time most of us in the crowd had heard it.  When Natalie Maines sang about Wanda and the domestic violence that she experienced, the crowd got eerily silent.  But, that didn't last long. Once she started the chorus and announced that "Earl had to die," the predominately female crowd roared to life with cheers and whistles and yells of "Hell yeah!"  If I had been a man in that crowd, I might have been a little nervous at that point.


Best Country Song 
(From My Teenage Years)
"The Dance" by Garth Brooks



This song was chosen as one of the two that my graduating class either walked in to or walked out of (the gym) for our senior awards ceremony.  That's when I first heard it, back in 1992.  Although the song is specifically referencing a failed relationship, it can also be applied to life.  I often think about the things I've tried in life that didn't work out and how I'm still glad for all the experiences, even if things didn't turn out in the end like I planned. 


Best Country Song 
(That Makes Me Misty Eyed)
"Take Me Home, Country Roads" by John Denver 



Being a proud, native West Virginian, how could I not list my home state's unofficial state song in a "Best Of" country music list?  Honestly, this song has made misty-eyed and even made me flat out bawl one more than one occasion. It makes me think of home and all the things that I love about the mountain state, which are things that I miss dearly.



Best Country Song 
(Associated with a Childhood Memory)
"I Wouldn't Have Missed It for the World" by Ronnie Milsap



When I was seven and eight years old, I took gymnastics.  The lessons were given in a neighboring town and my parents, who were already divorced, took turns driving the 70 miles roundtrip to the gym and back every week.  My mom has never been one to listen to the radio while in the car; my dad, on the other hand, always did.  For some reason, this is the only song I remember from those car rides with my dad and for the past 35 years, whenever I've heard it, it has triggered that memory.


Best Country Song 
(That Also Makes a Great Mantra)
"Let it Go" by Zac Brown Band



Several years ago, a major change happened at my workplace that turned the life of everyone who worked there upside down.  This song, or specifically the last two lines of the chorus, became my mantra for that year.


"You keep your heart above your head and your eyes wide open
So this world can't find a way to leave you cold
And know you're not the only ship out on the ocean
Save your strength for things that you can change
Forgive the ones you can't
You gotta let it go"


Best Country Song 
(Of 2017)
"God, Your Mama, and Me" by Florida Georgia Line featuring the Backstreet Boys



As soon as I heard this song, about a month or two ago, I was incredibly touched by the simplicity and heartfelt sweetness of its message.  I think it is by far one of the prettiest songs I've heard in a long time.  Any woman who is the recipient of a song like this, is an incredibly lucky lady.


So, there  you have it - my six.  My apologies for no Waylon, Patsy, Merle, George, Willie, or Dolly.  For the record, though, the song "Forever Country," a mashup of "On the Road Again" by Willie Nelson, "I'll Always Love You" by Dolly Parton, and "Take Me Home, Country Roads", was my seventh song.  And because I like it so well and this is my blog,  after all, I've decided to include it anyway.  Here it is for your listening enjoyment.




What's a country song or two or three that would make your six best country song list?

As always, thanks for stopping by!  Have a great weekend!
