Splendor in the Grass...and the Moss...and the Lake...

Thanks to Dawn for sending me this breathtaking photograph of the Highlands of Scotland from the 2013 National Geographic Photo contest.   Look at the cottage (once you find it, like Waldo).  Can you imagine living there??  With James Alexander Malcolm Mackenzie Fraser?  Not much to do but swim...and fish...and christen the heck outta every shade like a color by number.  Mmmm hmmm...

Outlandish Observations: Diana/Compuserve SCOOP!

SPOILER ALERT:  This post mentions a situation in An Echo in the Bone.

You have to read THIS POST from Karen at Outlandish Observations and tell me what you think about Diana's comments!!!!

Let me back up a bit.  At MOP chat tonight, we were discussing this comment from Diana to Karen on Compuserve:

"I realized what the Necessary (Horrible) Thing was that had to happen to resolve (or, um, not, as the case may be...) a particular situation."

(Make sure to go to Karen's post and see that in context.)

So at chat, we discussed:  What does that mean?  Would Diana would "off" someone we all know and love!  Is it that serious?  Or something horrible but not dealing with death?  Maybe something just that is unpleasant and tough for us to swallow has to happen to someone we love?

Go read Karen's post and let me know what you think!!

MOP Chat Tonight!

Claire "Badass" Beauchamp and Jamie "Highland Hound" Fraser

Aaaaaand here come the fun Outlander series articles!

Entertainment Weekly posted this article about the opening scene of Outlander.

Except someone is going to have to 'splain this commentary to me:

"Another critic asked if a pivotal scene from the book where — spoiler alert – Claire is harshly physically punished by her lover Jamie (Sam Heughan)."

Don't know who the other critic was...but "harshly physically punished"?  LOL! Dude...he spanks her.  On the ass.  He doesn't beat her in the head while inflicting some sort of WWE full nelson slam on her.  WTF?

(Yeah...I did have to google WWE maneuvers.  I'll admit it.)

Note: My peeps on Facebook have reminded me that Jamie used a belt.  Worse than a bare-handed spanking?  Yes.  But "harshly physically punished" just conjures up visions of...well...WWE maneuvers.  LOL
