The Ladies’ Turn September 14, 2007

Posted by Mrs. Peel in Crime, Ducks, Food, Heroes, History, Man Laws, Personal Experiences, Sex, Women Ranting.


The gun is hot, but so is the car.

And so is The Bulge.


Here’s a bonus shot of Brad Ausmus dripping with champagne after the 2005 NLCS:


Per Tattooed Intellectual’s request, here is the delectable Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy. *drool*


TI’s running down the old dudes made me think of a certain sexy older fellow whose charm I didn’t appreciate until fairly recently. I wasn’t even in double digits when I started watching Star Trek, so naturally I had crushes on Wesley (shut up, I was like 8, ok?) and Riker (pre-beard; I don’t like facial hair). After I got a little older, I caught on to the sexiness of engineers and totally crushed on Geordi for the longest time. However, I was baffled as to how any woman could find some old bald guy like Captain Picard sexy. It wasn’t until I was probably 20 or so that I came to understand the appeal of a powerful, confident, intelligent man, bald or not.


Speaking of men’s men, as I was in a comment below on the appeal of Magnum:


Permit me to conclude, however, by remarking that my boyfriend is sexier than all of these guys put together times a million.Β  And I’m not saying that just because I just gave him the link to this post, either.


1. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007

only heard a few hours ago, that he was selected as the lead for “indiana jones” but he couldn’t escape his “magnum PI” contract.

And in my opinion, he’s an AWESOME ACTOR. His performance in “quigley down under” was VERY well delivered, and I think he might have out done Harrison in the sequals.

2. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007

How about that shit? a GREAT actor is killed by CBS, before he could be Indiana?

3. TattooedIntellectual - September 14, 2007

Really, could we have gotten some pictures of The Rock, or Oded Fehr, or Steven Strait, or Aaron Eckhart, or even Colin Firth just to name a couple? Not that Magnum wasn’t nice, but he’s kinda…old πŸ™‚

4. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007


5. TattooedIntellectual - September 14, 2007

Damn straight. Can’t be lusting after guys who are old enough to qualify as my FATHER! Sean Connery is of course the exception to that standard.

6. TattooedIntellectual - September 14, 2007

And I do believe the correct spelling is ageist πŸ˜‰

7. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007


8. Retired Geezer - September 14, 2007

Can’t be lusting after guys who are old enough to qualify as my FATHER!

*lower lip starts to tremble slightly*

9. TattooedIntellectual - September 14, 2007

Now, how the hell do you manage to mis-spell ageist and get educationist right?

10. PattyAnn - September 14, 2007

*lower lip starts to tremble slightly*
Geez, you made me laugh out loud
I always liked Tom Selleck. And his geriatric equipment.

11. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007



Just saying.

12. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007

Did PA just call selleck geriatric?


Oh, man, I can barely contain myself.


13. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007

RG, accuse them of irrational behaviour, that gives you the pitty play. I’m just sayi’n.

14. Bart - September 14, 2007

Who tucks-in a tanktop?

15. Mrs. Peel - September 14, 2007

Someone who wants to show off his bulge, Bart.

TI, good point. Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy = teh hawt. Let me see what I can find. I don’t know who any of those other people are that you named.

How about Brad? Lustworthy or what? (He’s the Astros’ catcher.)

16. TattooedIntellectual - September 14, 2007

The Rock, aka Dwayne Johnson, pro-wrestler turned actor (very nice tats). He did the Scorpion King, Walking Tall, The Rundown and Gridiron Gang. Oded Fehr played in Deuce Bigalow as the gigolo, and in both Mummies. Aaron Eckhart played in Thank you for Smoking and No Reservations. Steven Strait’s just a cutie, played in Sky High and The Covenant.

Brad’s not bad, needs to clean that chipmunk off his chin.

I heart Colin Firth!

17. Retired Geezer - September 14, 2007

Oded’s cool.

18. TattooedIntellectual - September 14, 2007

Oded’s HOT! πŸ™‚

19. Mrs. Peel - September 14, 2007

Sky High is the only one of those movies I saw…

Yeah, men need to be clean-shaven, but Brad Ausmus is probably the most drop-dead gorgeous man on the planet. I do like them just a wee bit more rugged and manly, though, hence the appeal of Magnum. Probably also why I prefer that particular picture of Brad, unshaven and slightly messy and dripping with champagne and sweat; it kicks the manliness up a notch.

Hmm, how about that guy from Burn Notice? I can’t decide if he’s good-looking or not.

20. Bartpinto - September 14, 2007

Yeah, men need to be clean-shaven…


I depilitate regularly. Yet I shave only two times a week.

21. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007

Eat Shit Bart!!! πŸ™‚

I actually grow facial hair on purpose, because I look like a friggen baby if I don’t have it.

Honestly, I look like a child TRYING to grow facial hair, cuz I have a bald spot on the left portion of my face, but with proper grooming I might actually look my age.

I HATE looking like a child, I HATE HATE HATE IT!!!

“umpa, lupa” STOP!!!

really, Looking like a youth worked at one time, but it doesnt always. I literaly, broke into my headmates room (“headmate” doesn’t mean what it might sould like it means) and I’m standing there stark naked and I sorta shouted “I’m a grown man!!!”

he responded.

I was just amazed that I suddenly realized that I’m actually an adult, and not some insoucient child with manlike attributes. I was a Man, a grown man.

There is a lot more responsibility associated with that realitsation that most any other acknowledgement.

A tough tithe I had to pay, because I was now, not only a man, but I KNEW it.


if that ain’t a kick in the balls.

22. Bart - September 14, 2007

I’ll let the others field this one.

23. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007

The “others” tend to like me bart, it’s best left to you πŸ™‚

24. Wickedpinto - September 14, 2007

Or rather are “nice” to me.

25. Bart - September 15, 2007

I like you and I’m nice.

I like you so much that I steal part of your monicker on occasion.

26. daveintexas - September 15, 2007

I believe Tom is carrying a .45

That in and of itself, is pretty awesome.

27. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007

Oh goodness, Mrs. Peel. Now I’ll never get to sleep. If Jeremy Irons were in there, I might gum up my keyboard drooling.

What excellent, excellent taste you have!

28. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007

Who is the last one? Is he on that detective show, Monk? Is he the one who played Buffalo Bill? He’s so handsome in that picture – I must investigate further.

29. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

Captain Picard also falls under the Sean Connery exemption to the age thing πŸ™‚

I don’t have any issues against old guys per se, just have to be careful b/c you start running into the father thing which gets a little weird.

30. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

Yep euphrosyne that’s Capt Leland Stottlemeyer (Ted Levine) on Monk

31. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

Something that most of you might not know, I have a “tramp” stamp.

it was supposed to be a base for a followon tatoo, but I realised I didn’t like tattoes.

I have a small, skull at the base of my spine, it was supposed to be one of 5, but I and my buddy’s couldn’t afford it.

later, I was gonna get a particular back panel tatoo, but I realized, I wasn’t that guy.

So I have a sorta “tramp stamp”: sorta tatoo at the base of my back, and let me inform you, It’s a FUCKING BITCH getting that tat.

You can’t help but flinch.

32. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

My foot tats hurt, but that tramp stamp. . . .while it wasn’t painful, i could not sit still.

“your little girl gonna sit still” was what “alfie” said, the guy who gave me the tat.

“I don’t know” my best friend replied.

ever heard the term “crawling muscles?” or some such like that?

My best friend said he saw my muscles move as I got that tat.

I have new respect for bitches with “tramp stamps” even though my tatoo wasn’t MEANT to be a stamp, it was meant to be the base of a panel, but you know what?

I don’t care.

Call me bitch, cuz of my skull, call me bitch cuz of my foot tats, call me bitch for my clicque tag, I don’t care.

In the end we were better than that, better than the tats.

33. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

BTW everyone who joined my clicque had a small cross on their right calf.

The rule was Anyone WITH could GIVE.

I was the first, I tattooed myself with a small cross, and a small star, beneath the cross. (I was raised catholic)

I tatooed myself, my friends were somewhat startled because IT IS PAINFUL to do that.

So I tatooed my closest friends.

My brother, has that tatoo, but I wouldn’t do it myself, I made him pick a friend.

he didn’t, so one friend made one part of the cross, the other the other, and another the star.

In the Marines, the trend lived on. Eric has it, so does nick, I don’t know about nate.

Nick was the closest to my clicque.

Ed, a post grad engineer, joined, as did others.

Buit the tramp stamp skull? that was completely silly on my part.

34. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

WP you are a nut. The worst tat I have is the ankle–when the tattoo gun hit that Achille’s tendon I could feel the vibrations in my hip. The one on my lower back wasn’t intended to be placed there, but once the tattoo lady and I hashed out the design that’s about the only place it would fit, and the only one who gets to call it a tramp stamp w/o getting slugged is my little brother. It will eventually tie in w/ the one I have on my shoulder when I can settle on the design.

Since you brought it up, I’ve about decided on placement and have amorphous ideas on design for the next tat.

35. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

If I make the SB party I will show the tiny little clique tat.

It really is tiny.

36. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007


Oh my. Maybe it’s my seventies/eighties childhood, but a well-groomed mustache on the right man gives me a little twinge.

Okay, it’s totally because of Tom Selleck. That man is beautiful.

37. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007


“actions of perfect meaning?”

38. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007


Hey, I’ve got the ankle, too. Just the outside, though – no tendon involved.

Have you seen those tats that look organic, like birthmarks or something? I wish I knew the name of the artist who started them – she did a spiral galaxy on my friend’s shoulderblade that is stunning.

39. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

Perfect acts is a clear translation I think.

sine, is a combination of two languages meaning, either meahing, or actions.

40. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007

WP – yeah, right. Perfect meaning. If only.

No, she’s the Greek Charite of laughter and joy. And smartassery, in my personal pantheon.

41. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

I tend to catch shit b/c I have large tats (figured everything else was, might as well). And most females stick to fairly small girly/fluffy things.

I hadn’t heard anything about the birthmark tats. Interesting idea.

42. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007

I’ll see if I can dig up a link. And hey – big canvas, more room for art.

43. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

Tatooed, All but one of my tatooes were delivered by my friends.

We were engineer types, we BUILT tat guns, and I couldn’t give a shit.

The only Honest tatoo, other than my tramp stamp skull was my click marker.

I tagged myself, and I tagged my friends, and I tagged my brother and his friends.

we are all marked with that hand, ALL HAND tat. I punched my own flesh with a needle, and I punchend my friends flesh with a needle, and I personaly punched my brothers flesh with a needle.

You ain’t unless you accept.

We, “we” are unique. Fuck there are post grads who have had the needle.

44. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

Tatooed intectual, I have two tats on the tops of my feat.

45. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

Also, ever heard of Marty Jackabowski? how about “Big leg dave?”

how about alphie back?

I knew a lot of artists, I just wasnt willing to be their canvas.

My best friend was on the cover of Tatoo magazine, he had a rhino on his calf.

46. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

I was never a real participant in anything.

I was a tourist, I saw a lot of shit, but I wasn’t a part of it.

47. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

Feet, unless they do amazing works πŸ™‚

And I’ll get mine done in a shop where I know the lady who does them (she co-owns the shop) and I’ve seen the autoclave and other hygiene features.

48. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

Though I do, at times regrett not having my panel done, it would have been beautiful.

49. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

Nothin’ stopping you, well maybe the $.

50. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

I think I would use “tatoo dave” from chicago, he does great work.

There is also a guy from ST. Lou who is impressive, and abssent him? I will go with “mick” is it “the cutter? or is it the writer?” I forget?” from NO.

Best Tats are in chi, in NO, and in ST. Lou. at least in my experience. BTW I’m a subscriber to a number of maazines.

And, I think I am the ONLY person here who is “pierced.”

51. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

Ears are pierced but that’s about it, have considered the nose, but have never actually done it–really don’t like needles.

All of my tats and my sister’s and brother’s tats have been done by the same lady in Omaha NE

52. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

No TattooedIntellectual,


53. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

do you need me to reiterate?

54. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

No, I’m getting the picture WP and I don’t really want it any clearer. Thanks!

55. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

I did NOT offer that last comment!!

I promised after the appadravia posting that I wouldn’t, and I did not, someone posted under my name.

I did NOT make that last comment. . .

At least I didn’t here.

56. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

ACK!!!! I totaly thought I was fighting with tatooed at Ace’s place.

Still, I know tattooed people who would make tatooed cringe, and I’m “pierced” I’m just saying

lets hope we both find our way to the SB party TI.

57. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

had a friend who had his head pierced.

_I_ know that that piering would migrate out of common vision, but he didn’t care.

he was kinda wealthy.

58. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

With the help and honest support of a particular friend,I expreienced a particular piercing.

Unfortunately becuase of a particular instance, I lost my jewelry, and I went from AP to PA.


I went through the AP pain, but now, I must satisfy myuself with an PA? NO EFFING WAY!!!!

I will fix that as soon as I have the residence and money to take care of it .


59. TattooedIntellectual - September 15, 2007

Definitely headed into the way too much info area here. I do understand that that’s your MO tho, so carry on.

60. Wickedpinto - September 15, 2007

I don’t care about how much info I share/

See. I’m the crazy guy.

not the “oh he’s so crazy” giggle laugh kinda crazy.

I’m authenticaly insane πŸ™‚

61. Retired Geezer - September 15, 2007

*looks around*

*backs away*

62. kevlarchick - September 15, 2007

Colin Firth in the morning. Nice. All that tousled hair.

Captain Picard? That voice could make me do just about anything…

63. Mrs. Peel - September 15, 2007

Yep, I find Captain Stottlemeyer pretty sexy, because while he has flaws, he’s a man. Kind of hard to explain, but this is the kind of guy who wouldn’t be caught dead watching Lifetime or Sex in the City, who can handle a gun, and who is probably a big huge cuddly teddy bear in private. Only in private.

I was sad when his wife divorced him (on the show) and he asked why, and she answered, “Because you have to ask why, Leland. That’s why.” Bitch.

Incidentally, the ending to last night’s Monk was HILARIOUS, and the ending to last night’s Psych was not-so-great. Jules can totally do better than Shawn.

64. BrewFan - September 15, 2007

lol, Geezer!

65. pajama momma - September 15, 2007

And, I think I am the ONLY person here who is β€œpierced.”
Do bellybuttons count? Now mind you, I got this piercing before I ever had kids.

66. pajama momma - September 15, 2007

Colin Firth is sweet. I was never much for Tom Selleck till I saw him take on Rosie, then he became a sexy god to me!

67. Michael - September 15, 2007

Do bellybuttons count?

Mine can only get to 4.

68. pajama momma - September 15, 2007

HAHAHAHA! Things like that are why I love these blogs. They make me happy. Not as happy as chocolate, but close. Actually not even close, but happy none the less.

69. Retired Geezer - September 15, 2007

Mine can only get to 4.

Mine goes to eleven.

70. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007


I love Monk, too. And expecting someone to read your mind… why do so many women do this? Okay, I know it was just a tv show, but still.


Ah, voices. How about Alan Rickman? Right down the spine to the nether bits, imo.

71. lauraw - September 15, 2007

Yeah, yeah, men, whatever.

Next year’s garden. Front yard kind of sucked this year.



72. lauraw - September 15, 2007

Got to move quick if I want to have pots of these forced for the end of March.


Anybody here ever force tulip bulbs? It’s so easy and rewarding.

73. lauraw - September 15, 2007

Not to denigrate men. Sorry if it came off that way. Just a little more consumed by the garden thing right now.

Men are great.

74. daveintexas - September 15, 2007

yeah, we rock

75. The Tulip Bulbs - September 15, 2007

Anybody here ever force tulip bulbs? It’s so easy and rewarding.

We don’t wanna.

76. Retired Geezer - September 15, 2007

Anybody here ever force tulip bulbs?

I’d rather flatter them first then give them a Roofie.

77. pajama momma - September 15, 2007

Anybody here ever force tulip bulbs?
well I for one want to know what that means. I just planted a garden in my yard and am happy with the results. Since you are the zen master Laura, do you know if I should even waste my time trying tulips in northern flori-duh?

78. lauraw - September 15, 2007

Waste of time, they need a cold climate.
Enjoy your far more lovely tropical plants!

Forcing refers to ‘forcing’ bulbs and deciduous shoots to flower out of season by tricking them.

Fome, it’s potting up tulips or other small bulbs like crocus and daffodils, and giving them the cold rest they require for blooming (usually 8-14 weeks, depending on variety), then bringing the pots indoors for blooming in the Winter or very early Spring.

79. pajama momma - September 15, 2007

Wah! What a shame daffodils and tulips are my favorites. I loved them when I lived in Utah. I do have crocus(es?)
though, but they say out here I don’t have to take them out in wintertime or anything.

Forcing refers to β€˜forcing’ bulbs and deciduous shoots to flower out of season by tricking them.

that just sounds plain mean!
thanks for the info

80. ConservativeBelle - September 15, 2007

I can’t believe y’all forgot Sam “Beef – It’s what’s for dinner” Elliot!


81. daveintexas - September 15, 2007

I’ve never forced a tulip bulb in my life.

I might have persuaded one or two.

82. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007

See, you can tell RG has been around the flower bed a time or two.

83. euphrosyne1115 - September 15, 2007

Oh, Sam Elliott. Sing it, sister.

84. Retired Geezer - September 15, 2007

Even macho d00ds like me and the rest of the IB Crimefighters, like Sam Elliot.

He must be god.

Mrs. Geezer agrees.
I probably already mentioned she likes Mike Rowe too.

85. mesablue - September 15, 2007

Sam Elliot is cool.

I’ll watch just about anything he’s in — you know it’s gonna at least be decent.
