Vanished!

And it's all the fault of this man...
He's the hero of the book I'm currently racing to finish, an Argentine polo player called Alejandro. (Well, I guess he'd call himself Nacho Figueras. Whatever. I hope that in real life he's more accommodating than his fictional twin) He's actually been quite a joy to work with, but I wish that he'd just accept now that he's beaten and give in gracefully, since the book is currently about ten thousand words too long. He's that kind of guy.

Anyway, while I disappear again to wave my editorial scissors over his head (and other parts of his gorgeous anatomy) you can enjoy him here in the super-smooth Ralph Lauren ad. If anyone has any thoughts on what he intends to do with that trumpet, do share...

OOh shivers...that was nice! There were some other delicious little clips at the bottom (did you search on 'aftershave'?). The Dolce & Gabbana-Light Blue one is quite shocking, don't you think? I've watched it four times already...
Lots of love,
Rach.

He looks rather nice... hope you're able to snip away at that book without too much anguish!

Mary said...

Glad to know you are doing well. I had begun to despair of you ever appearing again. Although, I did have my suspicions..."Hmm, perhaps someone yummy and handsome is holding her captive against her will..."

Guess I was right. Lucky you!

I like the way Mary thinks!

Oooh, great ad, and great song...who's doing it? It doesn't sound like...oh, bloody hell, was it Dionne Warwick or Carol King who covered the song?

As for the trumpet...1) He's mute and can only express his love via the trumpet (aka The Trumpet of the Swan) (2) The lady needs lessons (you guess which kind) and that's his apparatus of choice to school her before the big dive-in...

Yes, you're right. Am in desperate need of caffeine!

Nice to see you back, by the way!!

Sorry to have been so elusive, everyone. My poor blog is feeling very lonely, so thank you for coming back and visiting the old place!

Ahem, Rachel... don't you have some work to be getting on with, young lady? Put the D&G man down, NOW.

Kate, it's been snipped but it does hurt to throw away all that hard work! This has never happened to me before; I've always come in right on word count target. What about you?

Mary-- hmmm, when you put it like that, the deadline doesn't seem so bad after all! I'm liking her take on life too, Eva!

Brown-- lovely to see you too, darling and I'm feeling awful because I owe you an email or 20. Not sure who is singing this version of the song, but it's cool isn't it? Shelby Lynne has done a recent one which is nice too.

(Gulp. 'Big dive-in'... There's an image to conjure with...)
