Wow, I'm am such an idiot. Here I was thinking I had everything under control. Had the final copy of my new release back, was posting excerpts to the different chat loops, even going through and making sure I was all set for my dayjob tomorrow.
Boy, was I wrong. One of the most important things on my list of things to do was phzzt gone from my mind until I looked at the clock and realized--I needed to post my blog today.
It's sad that I'm not a blonde, I think I would do so well as one on those days when my brains leak out and leave nothing but air behind.
But that's a bit of a disservice to the pale-haired populace--there are quite a few brilliant blondes out there:
Marilyn Monroe made a fortune as a 'dumb' blonde, but every business move was structured to gain as much leverage from her roles as possible. Nope, not a bubble head.
Jane Mansfield (she predates Marilyn) but what a sharp lady. Beautiful, blonde and brilliant.
Paul Newman, oh my, the heart flutters. It was a great loss when he passed recently. I have to say, not a dumb man and his comment when asked if he'd ever been tempted to stray just makes me sigh. His response was simple: "Why should I go out for hamburger, when I have steak at home?" Nope, not a dumb blond.
Viggo Mortensen (okay, so his hair is light brown--I prefer to call it dark blond) talk about a Renaissance man--he writes poetry and commentary, is a photographer and artist, and one hell of an actor--not to mention sexy as all get out? Again, blond isn't a bad word for this man.
Last but not least, the hero of my latest release (see I knew I could get the subject back around to my new book out--LOL) Bryce Halsey (inspired by Viggo and Judson Scott--think Start Trek III: Wrath of Khan) who has white blond hair and can wrangle business deals with one hand tied behind his back. Although the subject being tied up is usually his perfect submissive, Mattie Lawrence.
If you get a chance to check it out, Diablo Blanco Club: Unfair Advantage is available at Loose Id.
Okay, have to rethink my analogies now. Can anyone else think of blondes not representative of the "more hair than wit" faction? Please let me know.
