Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

It's Official!

I'm crazy.

My girlies are so kind as to provide me with the fruit of their rear ends, and to reward them for their selflessness, I feed them the huge quantities of green stuff they demand every time I go into the garden. It takes a lot of storage if you cannot get to the shops every day. (And costs a lot more than the price of a dozen eggs...)

My current fridge-freezer is just not big enough. But it slots into a rather narrow space between a fitted cupboard and a chimney breast. The appliance is just 21.5" wide, with a small gap on either side.

I measured up carefully (OK, not very carefully, not realising how close to my maximum all the new machines would be) and went off to choose a new one.

I chose something like this:

Only dearer, of course. No rubbish for my egg-providers. They save me pennies a week! So I went for the super-duper stainless steel frost-free self-defrosting version with water dispenser for just £699!

This is where it would have been better if my measurements had been of pinpoint accuracy. The fridge is 59.5cm wide, and no matter how many ways I measure it, the gap is at its maximum (this is an old house, no walls are completely straight) just 59.4cm.

There is a little bit of skirting board that might be removed to widen the gap, but here is the $64,000 question.

Will the delivery men wrench in off for me if that will make the f-f fit? And if they do, will the gap be wide enough all the way up?

Watch this space tomorrow for the latest rivetting news.

Thought Process

It's amazing how Vincent makes Bobby's thought processes so clear.

And what do you think?

On the Shoulders of Giants

And what a set of shoulders this giant has!

Happy Birthday Vincent D'Onofrio

Thank you for being our favourite hunk, our big, sweet, gentle giant, our sexy softie, our best ever genius actor.

And I'll bet little Luca would join Leila and Elias in saying to their lovely dad: Have a great day!

Bastard Luck

Do things really come in Threes?

On Sunday, my neighbour trod on her glasses, breaking them. She thought nothing of it.

Yesterday her hand was crushed on the bus when the driver braked suddenly, and her shopping trolley moved, trapping her hand between the handle and a rail. She spent 3 hours at the hospital.

Today a delivery van (Tesco's for those who know them) reversed into her front wall. He didn't even bother to stop and ring the doorbell. Unluckily for him, the neighbour on the other side saw it all. And being a lawyer, he's a great witness to have. But still she has a broken wall and all the hassle of putting in a claim and getting it repaired.

She never did a single bit of harm to anyone. She has been a great neighbour for 33 years.

If there is a god, he'd better keep clear of me.

A Man of Some Standing

Trust me, it was hard to exclude the sitting, crouching, perching and other alluring positions our Bobby takes, just to live up to this title.

What's In A Mouth?

Not my tongue, sadly.

Pucker up, baby

You know how to give and receive pleasure with that mouth.

Yep, more puckering, I'm waiting.

That smile is inviting.

Oh, those lips.

Aha! His hand is in his mouth.
I can think of better things to do with both of those, my darling.

Last Episode

I've just posted the last episode of Good Works over on:

Now, Vixens, it's over to you. Any budding story writers out there, let me know and I'll happily give you a slot.

As you will see from the ending of the story, Alex also has a life After Major Case, and I've written a few words, but the idea is not yet fully formed, and it will be ages before Alex's story is ready, so - your turn!


For my US friends who don't know the word, "snog" (verb or noun) is the heavy petting, tongue-kissing-down-your-throat activity that teens engage in in the weeks/months/years before they go the whole way. Boys and girls score marks to their friends as to the snogging ability of their latest. What I want here is which of Vincent's characters you would most like to snog.

Evil Professor Moriarty

Gentle Elton

Sad Charley

Hot Cholo

Gorgeous Guy

Kinky Carl

Intense Robert

Sweet Valentino

Big Bad Mr Blue

Or Beautiful Bobby

Maybe I've missed the one whose snogging skills you'd like to try out?
Here's your chance to fill us in on your fantasy.
