Eye Candy and Rambling

Since Kris introduced us all to AussieBum I thought I'd post this little video. You really need to go to their website and view them all. Almost as good as porn.

I wrote a little story for Chris and KZ based on one of KZ's posts. You can read it here if you haven't already. Excuse the errors, I didn't take much time to edit.


I probably won't have a book to report on since I started Love Ahead by Madeleine Urban and Abigail Roux last night and it's 398 pages so that should keep me going for a day or so.




And here's some pics of the now famous Aussiebum products. Look at those cool patterns on the fabric. Look closely. :-D

Note the interesting waistband pattern.

You do realize I only look at these for the design features right?

It's kind of nice to think about the beach and the scenery on this snowy day. Have a great Tuesday everyone.

Thanks, Tam. Those are lovely! In the video, I particularly like the long-haired guy. He has an amazing...smile. And long hair. And other things.

Chris said...

*snort*

Val said...

Great visuals!

it's 398 pages so that should keep me going for a day or so.

At your reading speed? It'll probably take you only three hours, tops!

Tam said...

You and that hair thing Wren. LOL

It's true Chris. Sheesh. :-P

Well, I'm sitting on a teleconference as I type this so I might get some reading done today. Don't tell. Depends if I get motivated to do laundry tonight.

wren boudreau said...

What? Doesn't everyone have a "Favorite Thing"?

K. Z. Snow said...

All of these models should be wet. All of 'em. They're selling swimwear, right? Well, there you go.

Tam said...

They're wet in the video KZ. That will have to appease you. :-)

Tam said...

Thanks Wren. Now I have that damn Julie Andrews song in my head and I don't think my favourite things and sister Maria's were quite the same. ;-)

Jenre said...

Well...just....damn.

Tam said...

Glad I could help Jen. :-D

wren boudreau said...

Everybody sing along --

Hot men in nylon and muscles that glisten,
Broad shoulders, trim waists and lips made for kissin',
Patterned bikinis with hidden drawstrings,
These are a few of my favorite things...

Tam said...

Brilliant Wren, absolutely brilliant. LOL

Chris said...

Chris said...

*mope*

Tam said...

What's wrong hon? Non-motivational day? The weather? Lack of men who look like that living in Minnesota?

I'm outta here and going to get a haircut. It's so overdue it's frightening. See y'all later.

Chris said...

I think I saw someone with an exposed eyebrow earlier... *shivering*

K. Z. Snow said...

Bad editing on that vid. The shots zing by too fast. All it sold me on were men with long dark hair, which wasn't a hard sell to begin with. *sigh*

No, they don't make 'em like that in the upper Midwest...especially in winter.

wren boudreau said...

Chris, do stop moping. Just sing! *hums a few bars* It will make you feel a LOT better. And keep you warm.

ErotRomReader (Janna) said...

Gosh, thanks for the great (long haired) visuals!
I want to read everything by Urban & Roux. I hope you enjoy this one.

Tam said...

Chris: Sending warm vibes your way.

KZ: Try this one, just click on video. There's some pics at the back (but it's pretty fast at the start) and they are wet. Bonus.

Wren: Our little song bird.

Janna: It's actually two stories in one. I finished the first one and I quite enjoyed it. Typical Urban and Roux. :-)

Jenre said...

Love Ahead is one of my comfort reads. It's not perfect but I like the heroes in both of the stories. Hey, anyone who can make trucker guys sexy gets my vote any day. It certainly took away my mental image of beer guts and stale sweat mixed with diner grease.

Tracy said...

Hey there. Just a quick note because I'm now catching a plane to Australia to see all these men! Talk later. lol

Tam said...

Gee Jen, thanks or that image. I think pretty much ANYONE could improve on that vision. :-) I did like both guys in the first story. As you said, not perfect but a nice read.

Take pics for us Tracy. I want proof. ;-)

K. Z. Snow said...

Thanks, Tam. At least it had a little stretch of slideshow format -- much more conducive to ogling. ;-)

Lily said...

I loved Love Ahead, it was the first of their books that I read.

I spend way too much time at this site the other day when Kris posted on it. YUM, loved the guy with the long hair!

Tam said...

Hey Lily. I know, there are so many pretty boys on that site. I think they're pretty, I wasn't looking all that closely at their aces to be honest. :-P

I finished Love Ahead last night. I'll save my comments for tomorrow or maybe tonight. We'll see how my day goes.
