MsMoonlight's first day on the island!

It’s my first day on the island and I am thrilled to be here! But I did not arrive alone.
One of the things I was asked when I first joined DIK was what “fun thing” would I bring to the island (see below). Being a mature woman I didn’t think of toys or gadgets, my mind went right to men *grin* and the first man who came to mind was Johnny Depp. Aside from his talent as an actor and his sex appeal *fanning self here*, I really think Mr. Depp is a great guy. He is kind hearted, gives to assorted charities and is wonderful to his fans – especially kids. He’s got a great sense of humor from what I’ve seen (I’ll find out sharing a hut with him and all my heroes soon enough) and I love his eyes and sexy grin. To me, he was the obvious choice in my one “fun thing” item I got to bring along. And as promised, I won’t hog him all the time, I can share. But don’t be surprised if he’s drunk, he brought an excessive amount of rum with him to the island – for more on that check out my post yesterday on Moonlight to Twilight Blog.
So that means I have eight book heroes in my hut PLUS the sexy and talented Johnny Depp as my “fun thing” – yummy – 9 hot men in the sun. In tomorrow’s post you’ll meet my heroes. Today it’s a bit more about me. I’m not very exciting so you may need toothpicks for your eyelids – sorry.

Favorite Reading Position – flat on my back sprawled out on my sofa; book perched over my face about 3 inches from my nose if it’s a good one.

Favorite Heroine – Sookie Stackhouse (series by Charlaine Harris). Even when she’s scared she does what needs doing and she’s sassy. I like that.

Author everyone loves but you don’t –Shh…don’t tell Lea she might smack me, but I just don’t like Shakespeare. I found Romeo & Juliet depressing and a waste of life and don’t get me started on Hamlet! I am just not a fan of Shakespeare- too much tragedy and darkness for me in most of his works that I’ve read.

If you could be in one book/series/world which would you pick – Oooh good question! The easy answer for me is the world of Harry Potter. I fell completely in love with the world JK Rowling created with her boy wizard. I think it would be great fun provided I was one of the magical people (I’d hate to be called a ‘muggle’) who had a wand and knew how to use it.

How old is your inside voice – it remains forever a 20-something but with 40ish hindsight and experience.

If you could be a hero who would you be – My young hero pick is Harry Potter, though I wouldn’t want to fight off the evil Voldemort and his Death Eaters year after year. Harry is a great hero, faithful friend and compassionate. He’s smart, a quick learner and when he stumbles into trouble he works a way out and comes out better for it in the end. Harry has my respect because he’s earned it as he’s grown through the HP series.
For a more mature hero my pick would be Mr. Darcy (Pride & Prejudice) because he’s smart yet vulnerable, rich yet generous and completely romantic. What’s not to like about all that?

What heroine is most like you – Hmm… let’s see...umm…who is a passed her prime, over-weight book addict? *snaps fingers* I’ve got it! “Amanda Briars” in “Suddenly You” by Lisa Kleypas – a great book with a not so perfect or young heroine.

What heroine would you like to be – ‘Bella Swan’ from Stephenie Meyer’s “Twilight” series so I could pick “Jacob” instead of Edward! Bella is so dumb! Who wants cold, dead and glittery (I mean really! Ewww) when you can have a hot hunky beast rippling with muscles?! Team Jacob!!

Boxers, Briefs, boxer briefs, kilt (I say we add commando) – I love buffets! I’ll take one of each please, with seconds on the commando in a kilt! :o) I gotta say authors JR Ward and Lora Leigh do great commando style heroes.

Favorite book set on a tropical island – Easy one - “Sins of Summer” (4 erotic stories set in hot tropical locations by 4 authors: Annmarie McKenna, Mackenzie McKade, Marie Harte, Dawn Halliday) But warning, this book is smokin’ hot with all sorts of sex going on… m/f, m/m and m/f/m. Read with a tall glass of ice water and the AC cranked up.

What hero is most like your significant other – if my significant other had been anything like the heroes I read he wouldn’t now be my ex. :o)

What hero would you like to be your significant other – Good question! The possibilities are endless! I am tempted to pick either “Rhage” (Lover Eternal by JR Ward) or “Eric” (Sookie Stackhouse series by Charlaine Harris) but since they are both vampires and would burn up in the sun, that’s a major drawback- especially on a tropical island.
It’s a tossup between Navy SEAL Clint “Iceman” McIntyre (Dangerous Games – Lora Leigh) or James “Dawg” Mackay (Nauti Nights – Lora Leigh). Apparently I like Lora Leigh men!

If you were stuck on a desert island what 3 things would you bring
-my computer (solar powered of course)
-Johnny Depp (this was question 6 in my Q&A welcome post back in June: Name one fun thing you would bring to the island?Hmm...'fun thing'? Johnny Depp if he's available! I think I'd have lots of fun with him. )
-a razor (can you imagine being all hairy and stubbly with Johnny Depp walking around?)

Favorite drink to bring to the DIK party – rum & coke on the rocks with a lemon wedge.

This has been great fun! Johnny and I will be back tomorrow to introduce my heroes. Right now Johnny is still drinking rum, but he's not a sloppy drunk so its all good! :o)

You can visit me back here tomorrow and at my blog “Moonlight to Twilight Blog”.

Your post is all that is awesome and more Ms.Moonlight!! I LOVE the pics of Depp, you had better share because I want him too...

And, not too worry, William isn't for everyone. I still love you. ;)

I'm so looking forward to partying here with you and the J man here tonight!

Thank you Lea!
I had a load of fun with this post and "researching" photos of Johnny for hours - such hard work. *wink*


Amanda said...

I'm so with you with Bella Swan and picking Jacob!

Hey MsM!!! Great post. I've tried reading while laying on my back, but my arms lose circulation, lol.

BTW, you crack me up..."if my significant other had been anything like the heroes I read he wouldn’t now be my ex. :o)"

I wonder how many women would say the SAME thing, lol.

Jenre said...

Hi MsM and welcome to the island! I'm a big Johnny Depp fan too. I mean how could you not be with those gorgeous eyes and rippling muscles?

Enjoy your stay!

Thank you Amanda! Go Team Jacob!

Mary G said...

Ms M
Awesome post!! Lea can have Johnny
(even tho he's hot). You & I will be fighting over LL's Elite Ops guys & Nauti Boys.

Barbara isn't that the truth (about the ex's)!
I started reading on my back with a book in my face while at the beach to block the sun and then found myself still doing it at home.

Thanks Jenre. Johnny is a hottie. And he's one of those guys whose always been good looking yet still seems to get better with age, like a fine wine. Love him!

Anonymous said...

Oh Mary G you like Lora Leigh's heroes too?
Come on over and sit beside me on the beach and lets compare notes!


Mary G said...

Oh Yeah
Love LL books & guys. Dangerous Games was the first one I read. Yes the guys are Alpha but the girls are not wimps either. I think Wild Card was incredible.
Wish I was there and I'd be bringing Lea back with me.

hi MsMoonlight :)

Great post. I love the Harry Potter books too.
A razor is a great item to have on the island...good thinking!

oh Johnny!!!!

Blanche said...

Awesome post MsM!! :)

I'd take a razor too......yikes being hairy with Johnny close by wouldn't be good at all! :)

Tracy said...

*sigh* I love Johnny Depp.

Two Words - Team Edward.

I love rum and coke - one of my favorite drinks ever! :)

Great post!

Cindy W said...

Great post! I really need to read the Sookie books. I've been watching True Blood, but the way you've been devouring those books, I gotta read it!

Anonymous said...

Hi Naida, thank you!


Exactly Blanche, we can't be all stubbly and hairy around Johnny!


OK Tracy, you can have the cold lifeless corpse of Edward and I'll take the overly heated beastly Jacob and together we'll drink rum & coke and drool over Johnny. Sound like a plan? *wink*


Oh Cindy you must simply MUST read the Sookie Stackhouse books. True Blood doesn't come close to doing the books justice.

Kris said...

*ducks in to steal Twilight icon*

I've a weakness for LL's ALPHAS too, Ms Moonlight. Uppercase is the only way to describe those guys. ;)

Hi Kris! I cracked up when I first saw the Twilight icon even though I am a fan of the books. :o)
