Beard of the Day


Here's a classic...as in "Star Wars" classic! Liam Neeson, who has a delicious, buttery accent and a tall, commanding presence that makes me swoon, had a rockin' beard in The Phantom Menace (which happens to be my favorite part of the series). The scene where Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan Kenobi (Ewan McGregor) fight Darth Maul is one of the most bad-ass, coolest action sequences ev-ah. The music, the intensity, the double light saber. The cool martial arts. I especially love the part when they first see Darth Maul, and they both remove their coats simultaneously, turn on their light sabers, and get ready to rumble. Are you kidding me?!!!!! It is so fabulous! I could watch that scene a million times (and I probably have...just ask my 12 year old son).

Anyhoo, Qui-Gon Jinn's beard is the ultimate Jedi expression. It's screaming "Come on, Evil Empire, I'm ready to kick...your...butt!"

As for my reading update....I had a DNF this week which I will discuss later...I feel a rant coming on about poor word selection in erotica, unsuccessful integration of suspense storyline with sex scenes in erotica, and too much repetition in erotica. Basically, I'm about to rag on erotica, can you tell?

The good news is...I am currently reading Changeless by Gail Carriger, and I am in love, love, love with this new-to-me author. Soooooooo great!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend,
Penelope

Oh my, I'm silly in love with Liam Neeson. That voice! Those eyes, that smile! Give me Liam in any role and I'll drool. I'm that much a fan girl.

It's embarrassing!

Hi Kate! Ooooo....me, too. He is delish. I think it's pretty cool that he is becoming a bad-ass action hero later in life!

Liam Neeson's beard may be the best thing about the new generation of Star Wars movies! Can't say anything else struck me as interesting. He is a handsome man!
