I Could See It In Her Eyes…

8 01 2012

One of this things I detested, and still detest, about raising a child, is when other people state “I could see it in his eyes.”  The first time this was actually used about my child, was when he’d been jumping on a couch, age 3.  A family member had asked him not to jump on the couch.  He’d never been asked not to jump on the couch before.  He was 3.  He carried on jumping on the couch.  When I came in, I took him aside and explained clearly that the rule in the house we were in, was that you didn’t jump on the couch.  He looked at me and nodded, and didn’t jump on the couch.

At home, I let him jump on the couch.  So he had been really confused by the request not to.

Beauty and the Beast… Sample Sunday August 28th

28 08 2011

There have been some excellent reviews of Changeling going up on Goodreads.  You might want to drop by and read them, before you read the following excerpt.  Mostly, because they do show that when I warn a reader of horrific, mind disturbing content…. I do not exaggerate, or give the warning as a tease.  Just a warning.

So be warned.  The following is strong stuff, and not for the faint-hearted.  As usual, this excerpt will be deleted out, during the week sometime.

Dreyfuss In Your Mind

23 08 2011

I have to thank Angela on Goodreads, for what I consider to an excellent review of Changeling.  But more than that, for her stating that she sees Gavin Rossdale as Dreyfuss.  She posts this picture here:

and I thought “Hmm.. yes, I could see that as Dreyfuss…”  Then I did a web search, and found…


And I have to tell you, that is so good a match to Dreyfuss.  In his various aspects.  No doubt I could find more… does anyone know if Gavin Rossdale has done a film in Roman Armour?  Oh boy, with the longer, shaggier, bleached hair, that is so the human Dreyfuss, as opposed to the vampire one.

This is who my husband always wanted to play Dreyfuss:

Jason Carter

and I went with it, in my head, to a certain extent, as he would fit.  Although Jason has blue eyes. And I felt that Viggo Mortenson had the power to play him:

Viggo Mortenson

But from now on, if I’d asked who could play Dreyfuss, I’ve have to say that Gavin Rossdale is as close as I’ve seen, so far, in the Dreyfuss stakes  Not as he IS Dreyfuss, but if anyone could pull him off, across the centuries, I think this actor has the potential.  Thanks Angela!

Yes, this is Gavin Rossdale too.  

PS.  I’m quite sane.  🙂
