Every New Year Deserves Blondes

I'm Baaaack.
I couldn't stay away from blogging for very long- it's like crack with a keyboard. For those who may remember my former blog, Snarkling Clean, this one probably won't be very different because the only reason for me to blog is so I can gripe and talk about books and write run-on sentences about nothing and then reward you for your hard work by posting pictures of random cute guys.
So I don't intrude on your goodwill any further, let's get right to the important stuff: BLONDES. Which is not normal for me; I tend to like heroes dark. But every once in awhile, I'll come across one that will make my Adolescent Crushes on Actors Gene stand up and sing hallelujah. To wit:

Remember this guy? Rutger Hauer in Ladyhawke. He usually plays villains, but he was such a great hero here. I'll never forget the scene where he was turning back into a man from his wolf form, and his cursed lover Michelle Pfeiffer was turning into the hawk- they caught just a glimpse of each other as humans. His howl of rage and frustration made me cry.

Here's another blonde that usually does a star turn as a bad guy, but I first saw Sean Bean as hero Captain Sharpe of Sharpe's Rifles. I also personally think Boromir of Lord of the Rings was a hero; he was just tempted for a little while.

He's more gray than blonde now, and that famous mullet is gone, but I still adore Richard Dean Anderson. MacGyver has always been one of my favorite heroes- who else could rescue the girl and save the world with tube socks, duct tape, and a Swiss Army Knife?

Viggo Mortensen. I don't really need to say anything else, do I?

At first, I was kind of hacked off. A blond James Bond? No way. No freaking way.
But, for some reason, Daniel Craig kind of grew on me. Go figure.
More random rambling and romance reviews and cute guys to come. I missed you!

And I have missed you.
So glad you are back, Dear Girl.
I don't usually care for blond guys either, but I'm willing to make a few exceptions - like the ones here.
