Okay Ladies... Settle Down

Here it is... so you can all stop clicking on this blog every 5 minutes to see if I have done the Monday Swoon yet.

.
Sigh. You all are so demanding.

Waughhoo put her request in early for this one. It seems she loves Scottish men... now me being as Irish as Irish can be (oh, there may be other heritage-schmeritage in there... but really, not enough to weaken the Irish blood in me) a Six-Packer may think that I would have a hard time posting some swoon-worthy men from Scotland, but you are forgetting that dear ol' Saint Patrick himself was a Scott... so that makes them good enough for me!
.
So let's start this off with a bang shall we?


Can we all agree that the best thing about this entire picture... hell, the best thing about this entire post... this entire BLOG, is that skinned up knee?





Don't look at me like that Gerard Butler... you heard me. Yeah, I whispered that in your ear. Oh, don't act so surprised. You know you are up for the challenge.



Damn... I forgot my swimsuit. What? You don't have one on? I don't need one either? Oh Mr. Butler-you are a cheeky fellow... and I've already told you once to stop looking at me like that. I am a married woman. Yes sir. MARRIED. (thanks friend for the pics)




Okay, lets put this to a vote shall we? The young Sean Connery....

Or the older, wiser, been around the block and knows how to parallel park Sean Connery?

Decisions, decisions...

Dougray Scott... so swooney as a good guy, but so swelteringly swoony as a bad guy. Is "swelteringly" a word? Is "swoony" a word? Who cares...

I fell for you Ewan when you did the movie Trainspotting back in the 90's which was such a disturbingly brilliant movie that I couldn't stop watching you... and it doesn't hurt that you have some ink on the right arm of yours.

Don't you just want to take James Mcavoy home, introduce him to mom and dad and bake him a pie? I don't know what it is about him... but the urge bake for this boy is overwhelming.

AND... since this is MY blog and I am willing to always give you Six-Packers what you want, I still have the right to post something that I like...

So here is a Brit for you...

Yes, yes, yes, I know that Gerard Butler beats this vampire with those skinned knees of his up there... but Robert Pattinson is laying in water somewhere and looking at us as if he needs to bite us or he will just go crazy.

Sorry, I just couldn't help myself.

Sigh.

June, you really are FABULOUS! THANK YOU!!! ;-) What a wonderful view... I love all the swoons, but I'll be having extra sweet dreams tonight!

And perhaps with the extra strength for the journey now I'll finally publish my blog! ;-)

Sara said...

You can swoon me with young Sean Connery ANY day of the week.

*sigh*

Thanks for that!

Alicia said...

OH! MY! GOD!!! Oooohhhhh! Myyyyyy!!

I.....I'm not sure.....He's in water!!!! He's wet!! Everywhere! Oh my!

It's suddenly very hot in here.

the Mom said...

The old Sean Connery. Definitely. I like a man who knows what he's doing, and you and I both know James Bond doesn't have to stop and ask for directions.

sigh.....


Thanks, June.

warren said...

Yeah...always go with the parallel parking ability....

The older Sean Connery. Definitely, the older Sean Connery.
My daughter Beth saw him when he was at the realestate firm she worked at in Chicago several years back. She watched him exit the building, stop and look up and down Michigan Ave. as only 007 could. So masculine, so handsome.
She was still swooning when she called me...
She had alot of fun with celebrity sightings downtown Chicago.
Thanks for the great swoon Tuesday.

Maria Grace said...

Wow.
I'm part Scottish and feel so proud right now. So proud and so swoony. I vote young Sean Connery.
(and thanks for the Edward fix!)

rita said...

That is THE hottest pic of Edward ever. Better than the "I won't tell you why I'm holding my hands over my crotch" photo from a few weeks back.

Wow.......

Re: Sean Connery.
Though there remains much to be said for youth and exuberant endurance, I do find the ability to efficiently parallel park quite the ripping turn-on.

Mathilda said...

Young Sean Connery. Two votes.

Don't forget Robert Carlyle from the Full Monty. He also did a BBC series called Hamish, and a few other un-noteworthy characters. But still he is definitely up there with the scrawny but buffed scotsmen.

june cleaver said...

Ladies... I am so disappointing in the fact that NONE of YOU have mentioned the skinned knee of Gerard Butler up there!!! Just imagine how he got that skinned knee!!!!

Mercy.

You all are losing your edge.

Maria Grace said...

oh June, your comment popped into my email about 1 second ago. I've been imagining that skinned knee all day long. I think it needs a kiss.
I think he got it playing rugby.

June,
You are so right. I'm losing my edge. Pray for me!
heehee

Layna said...

ahhhhhhhh. do i have a rug for him! surely he needs another one on the other knee?!

Thank you June!

Urban Mom said...

June, you never disappoint, my cyber-friend. And re: James McAvoy -- I've been meaning to post about him for a while. I swear he looks like U-Dad when he was that age. Or maybe it's just in my head. Oh well, who cares, right???

Now if only U-Dad could muster a Scottish accent.

Oh, and Ewan...Yummmmmmmmy yumma yumm yummmm.

Urban Mom said...

OH! And you have to go to iTunes and download a song called The Scotsman by Bryan Bowers (the album is called Home, Home on the Road). Well worth $.99 and more than appropriate for today's post!!

MKHKKH said...

Now I can go to bed a happy woman and dream about that knee!

Stacy C. said...

So worth the wait, June. I had a feeling Edward might make an appearance.

Maybe it's the lack of sleep, but I could swear I hear Gerald knocking at my door. I'd better check, I'm not willing to take the chance.

Where do you find these "swelteringly swoony" pics? sigh...

The Wannabe Redhead said...

I, too, have been thinking about the skinned knee for two days now. The reason I haven't commented? I would start to, then it would just become inappropriate... and I can't have anymore strikes against me with "The Big Guy."

(But it WAS a great post...nothing like seeing hot pics of Gerard on my Birthday, that's for sure!!)

nitebyrd said...

Men in kilts are just to die for!

Soliloquy said...

Nothin. I got nothin'. The guy in the water. He was nice. In a pinch, he could bring me a drink.

POOLBOYS, June. FOCUS.

Kristina said...

The skinned knee, and the look WITH the skinned knee. Mmmmmm...

But, I vote older Sean Connery. Definitely.

Oh, and thank you SO much!
