There’s only one big beardy guy I want visiting me tomorrow, and it ain’t Santa.

I saw this today…

…and thought, No wonder Rory likes Iceland so much. Hm. Is he also a chocoholic?

I’m not, but I do like it, and I can think of much worse ways to spend the day.

I am not counting on any sort of haul but, considering that the usual source of holiday haul for most of the last two decades was an utter shitbag to me this past year, I’ll take the lack of him being around as my gift.

ANYWAY. Saw this today: there is a Highlander reboot in the works with Henry Cavill playing Connor.

I once saw Rory asked in an interview who he’d want to play if the film were ever rebooted and he said the Kurgan. Of course. Though I’m seeing no news about that character yet.

I think I mentioned a few posts ago that my dude is a shy boy when it comes to love scenes. Bad guys don’t usually get love scenes.

Coincidence? Probably not. Hahahahaha.

(He’s also been cited as saying he prefers it when women approach him rather than the other way around. But then I’ve also heard that women appearing to pursue him seem to freak him out a bit. Could this be why he stays single for such long stretches of time? Hmmmm.)

MAN do I ever miss winter weather. We had one cold snap and it didn’t even freeze anything. My dad gets cold easily anymore and he thinks I’m mental because I run the fan or the wall a/c at night most nights. I don’t miss having to clear snow off my car but I need my seasons. Sniff.

Anyway. One more and then I’m outie. Later.

Google Alerts tells me as of yesterday, though I didn’t see it til today, that Rory McCann has been sighted at La Lanterna West End restaurant in Glasgow.

The link to La Lanterna’s Instagram is in the article I linked to up there ^^^. Interestingly, nothing in the article or the IG post states any sort of time period. Not only leaving off mentioning the date but not even so much as a “last weekend” or “a month ago.” This is consistent with usual patterns in reporting Rory sightings and I rather suspect he’s had some influence on that. (What the blue hell are you fangirls doing to my poor dude?) So you’ll notice I say “late 2021” in the alt code for both pics. Best I can do.

The pandemic’s ticking up again in the UK (and everywhere) so be careful, big man. ❤

Also: new blog post category! Might as well.

Edit: I swear to Glob I really can spell “lanterna.” Have major brain glitch today, I guess. Fixed.

Brief note:

Thor Bjornsson, the final Gregor Clegane actor, is in Scotland RIGHT NOW and all I can do is bounce like a little kid on candy when I think about it

(which is actually not all that often, usually just when he mentions it again on Facebook)

because I like to think he looked Rory up and they’ve been going down the pub.

PLEASE YES. Tickle my fandom, y’all. PICS OR IT DIDN’T HAPPEN.

(Actually, Thor’s considering leaning out some more — I think he might be about to fight Eddie Hall, whoever the fuck that is — so maybe he’s giving drinking a miss for now. But IT’S SO MUCH FUN TO THINK ABOUT.)

That is all.

I’m literally being eaten alive, and no I don’t mean the fun way (this is South Louisiana, remember… YES, EVEN IN BLOODY DECEMBER, why do you ask? We don’t have seasons like with fucking midges), so this will be brief.

You longtimers are aware I have a Google Alert set for Rory. What I may have neglected to mention is that more recently I set an alert up for him on eBay.

Most of the time it’s harmless.

Occasionally I really wonder about someone.

Whatever you think — I won’t judge… much — there you go. How’d they do it? 3D print. Enjoy. Or go “WTF.” Whichever.

Second up. Normal TV — I use the term “normal” only in a literal sense — is what’s got me going WTF these days. But I am pleased to note I’ve seen two of Rory’s movies in the past week: xXx: Return of Xander Cage and the Clash of the Titans remake. On the whole I like the first one a lot more, not least because Rory gets more lines, his character gets a bare-bones back story, and his character LIVES.

Sorry if I spoilered it.

(No, I’m not.)

Anyway, so that was nice. I’m actually a bit on tenterhooks wondering what network TV is going to throw at me next.

I still have my Rory DVD collection, anyway. I am nowhere near done, but I’ve got enough to be going on with. Yay!



Off to find the Benadryl. ‘Later.
