K is for Kissing in the Rain

Yes, I’m a few days behind on my blog challenge, so to make it up,  I’m listing my top five favorite kissing in the rain movie scenes. K is for Kissing in the Rain

1) Has to be Breakfast at Tiffany’s

Something about the desperate lip lock in the pouring rain is so…so primal.

In my up coming book, Lone Star Hero, she kisses her hero in the rain. Have to say it was one of my favorite scene to write.

In real life it might be more awkward and cold than romantic but that’s why we love fiction. Here are my 2-5

2) Spiderman

Did I miss one of your favorites?

Can Matthew McConaughey hold his own against Hugh Jackman & Chris Hemsworth?

If you know me at all you know how much I admire Hugh Jackman.

Sigh…What was I saying? Oh, yes. A couple of my friends are dedicated to Chris Hemsworth, so they were doing Thorsday every Thursday.

I thought that was clever of them and it got me to thinking about my little crush on Hugh.

So I started Hughday. The power of Hugh Jackman as WolverineFun, right?

Sometimes we need just a little bit of inspiration.

As a romance writer I have to research the perfect image for my heroes. Yes, it is a tough job, looking for just that right male for your next story. The face that will spark the inner conflict that will drive your plot and keep your readers turning pages. It is serous business…it is.

Well, Sunday night Mathew McConaughey, Texas Son with the smoothest voice, won Best Actor.

Now I’m on the hunt for the right word…Matthewday? uh….McConauday? …maybe Matthew McConaughey Monday? or just Alright, alright alright…Monday.  That’s a mouth full.

What do you think? Matthew’s day might end up being a temporary one…I mean he IS up against Hughday, Thorsday and Freday. Freday? you ask…For those of you new, I picked the perfect day to honor my real life perfect hero. Fred Navarro – Freday – perfect, right?

So Please let me know what you think about McConauday? Maybe you have something better? Some in my house think this post was just an excuse to play with these pictures. Really?

Oblivion: Do you follow the rules or question them?

Are you a person that is in awe of the miracle of life or do you glare at the world with a suspicious squint?
Surprise! Date night with my Mr. D & H to Boerne’s new Starplex! http://www.starplexcinemas.com/ Little Boerne, Texas is moving up in the world. Of course after 26 years as a couple and four kids I’m easy to impress.

We went to the movie Oblivion, with Tom Cruise. I love thrillers, love stories and si-fi so I was excited about this one. I have to say Tom Cruise is a master of his craft. We won’t spend time talking about his personal life, because when he is on the screen he becomes that character.

Where there plot holes? Yeah, but the character and story kept me engaged to the point I over looked any inconstancies. The visuals alone in this movie are worth seeing. Talk about big set pieces.

The overall message I left with? Hope. I’m amazed by the resilience of the human race to live and find beauty in the world around us, even if that world has been destroyed. Books, art and music are at the very core of who we are as people, creative beings that look at the world in wonder. The profound emotions when your team wins in a no-win last minute play. The glory when the underdog triumphs. Love so deep you would sacrifice everything you know to stand against what you thought was true.

Do you question rules and reasons or do you play it safe? Jack, the hero, carefully transplants a flower he finds and waters it. When he brings it up to surprise his partner, she throws it out the window. It could be contaminated and it is against policy to bring anything from Earth’s surface into the house.

Do you follow the rules to keep everyone you love safe or question what they tell you is truth? Go see the movie and decide who you identify with the most.
