I Have a Secret...

I'll tell you mine, if you tell me yours...

Your secret from Jean-Sebastien Monzani on Vimeo.

Now that you've watched the prettifulness...tell me your secret for today.

I'll wait.

Thank you for sharing.

Now I shall tell you mine...

I have a crush on a hitman.

Martin Blank makes me swoon.

Now, back to weekend frolicking.



Lisa said...

I love that video. It's pretty and restful.

Mr. Hitman is very prettiful, too.

My secret is that today I will sneak up behind cats and whisk them away for a spa day. But don't tell them.

Oh and p.s. regarding my post on vacations. I thought your posts were delightful. You had the grace to enjoy your trip without marring it with complaints about re-entry or long to do lists. You simply enjoyed and shared. Thank you for that.

Lola Sharp said...

No Lisa---I bitched a little about the BUGS in Maine. And that I gained weight eating all that chowder ;) I was just keeping' it real, yo.

Yeah, Cusack in that movie just slays me. (whoever wrote that script makes me happy. I'll have to look that up.) Plus, I love the soundtrack.

Okay--I have guest outside in the pool, and I should be doing proper hostess duties right now.

Have fun wrangling the pussies.


DL Hammons said...

My secret.....

I'm still the scared little boy I used to be...I just have years of practice pretending not to be.


Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

I have a crush on Kate Beckinsale. Oh wait, that's not a secret!

Melissa said...

My secret?

I'm scared to finish my novel.

Chary Johnson said...

That was a great video clip.

My secret is that I love to people watch. I like seeing their facial expressions, hand gestures, clothing and general stance. Thanks, this was fun!

Jemi Fraser said...

What a beautiful video! Love it :)

Jeff King said...

"My secret?

Old Kitty said...

Awwwww what a clever use of a lorra post it notes!! And I'm silly as I read "The smell of old books" initially as "The shell of old books" !! Guess that's my secret then - LOL!!!

Yep that's one cute dreamy hitman alright...!

Have a fun weekend too!

take care

Susan Tiner said...

What a pretty video. My secret is that I just splurged on express shipping so that I could open a book I love two days sooner.

Tom Jankiewicz wrote the story and screenplay.

Carolyn V. said...

That was an amazing video! My secret...just to get that book on the shelf. It's not much of a secret, but how cool would that be!!! =)

Joan Crawford said...

My secret? Well, I ate most of my son's popcorn at the movie theater today and then pretended to be just as surprised as he was when it was empty.

I got him a new one :D

Al said...

Love the video.
Love the idea behind it.

Cheeseboy said...

Here's mine:

I have a huge crush on the Wipeout girl. Don't tell my wife.

Elaine AM Smith said...

My secret is that I'm scared the phone won't ring.

Theresa Milstein said...

I always loved him ever since he was in one of my favorite teen movies "Better Off Dead".

My secret? I was watching the new season of "Project Runway" on Tivo two nights ago and realized I have a girl crush on Selma Blair.

Kazzy said...

I was kind of disappointed to see that he was in Hot Tub Time Machine. Seems beneath him. I loved him in Woody Allen's Bullets Over Broadway.

Piedmont Writer said...

My secret -- scared of success.
Shhh....don't tell.

Aubrie said...

My secret crush:

Orlando Bloom. :)

TechnoBabe said...

Yes he is pretty hot. I prefer Johnny Depp, just me.

Elliot Grace said... secret.

I fear my skin's not thick enough to stomach negative reviews.

Or that Jennifer Love Hewitt is...okay, subject for another day:)

Dawn said...

Yummy hitman. Thanks!

My secret: I fear success. And I'm in love with Ian Somerhalder :-)

Lola Sharp said...

You, my friends, are interesting and thoughtful and funny and...
some of you sharing real secrets, so vulnerable and lovely and honest and perfect.

Some of us being silly. That's perfect too.

BTW, TechnoBabe, I LOVE Johnny Depp too. MORE than Cusack/Martin Blank. WAY more.

And, Aubrie? Me too, Yum.

Susan, thanks for the info. Really, I guess, what I love best about Martin Is Tom J's writing. :)

Kazzy--I agree. That was THE worst movie. So, so bad.

Elliot, oh, that's one of my fears too. I KNOW my skin isn't thick enough. I'm super strong about a lot of things, and stay honestly optimistic in the face of some ugly experiences...but...yeah. Being publicly crucified about something so personal that takes years of hard work is going to be painful.

Anne, Many people are. You aren't alone.

Jeff and Melissa-- see, you're not alone.

Elaine--I think that may be what Jeff and Melissa are really afraid of.

Everyone---I adore you.

Thank you for stopping by my little blog and taking the time to leave a comment. I read them all, even when I don't have time to respond to them. Every comment is like getting a happy card in the mail. :)


Lola Sharp said...

Dawn---oh YES, Ian is a fine piece of yum.

And so is Jensen. And Brad Cooper. And David Bekham. And...

So much yum out there.

But, what makes people truly attractive to me is their kindness, their intelligence.

Oh, and T---Selma Blaire is adorable and chic. Love her.

TechnoBabe said...

Dear kind Lola,
Thank you.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Hugh Jackman all the way!!!

Kelly said...

Very original video!
My crush(es): Nikki Sixx and Joel McHale :)

Alleged Author said...

He rocks my world!

Missed Periods said...

My secret:

Keaunu Reeves

I know he can't act, but that punim.

Kasie West said...

Um, on the video the secret about "the smell of second-hand books" kind of creeped me out. Now the smell of new books makes me smile every time. Second-hand books aside, that was a great video. Thanks for sharing.

Ann said...

Great video. The smell of any book is wonderful and intriguing too.

A secret, people will think me a fraud and not a writer.

Rebecca @ Diary of a Virgin Novelist said...

Hi Monkee! Monk mode is over for me but I am still working and writing and exercising. How are things going for you?

I also have a crush on that man. Have since I was 8 and probably will until I am 108.

~Nicole Ducleroir~ said...

Grosse Point Blank is one of my FAVORITE movies!!!!!! John Cusack is the king of awesome dialog!

My secret for today? I love being all alone this day, in my house, without my beautiful kids or my champion hubby -- just me, the kitten, and the silence. Can't wait to get writing!

Lola Sharp said...

Ann--I'm with you. I love the smell of paper and ink, no matter if it's old or new.

Kasie--I'm guessing it's the musty smell that freaks you out...but I still like it. Books smell yummy to me no matter what. Especially combined with the smell of coffee. :)

Nic--I"M GREEN with envy! A house to myself? *sigh*
And wee kitteh, want one of those creatures too. (can't. allergic.) Green with envy, me.

Hey Monkee-girl--um, the working out hasn't been happening. BUT, the critiquing of CP's and the revision slogging has happened a fair amount...not caught up, but getting there. Have you finished your first draft yet? I don't want to miss the throwing of the confetti.

Ooohhh, somehow this post turned into our yum-list!

You all have great taste...except, Kelly--Nikki Sixx...I could see if you said Tommy Lee or any number of other rock stars...but Nikki?

My rockstar of choice would be Brandon (from Incubus).

I adore all of you! :)


Talli Roland said...

Oh, John Cusack! I *love* him! I even forgive 2012 for him.

Lola Sharp said...

Oh please, 2012 and Hot Tub Time Machine are not, NOT to be forgiven. Total poorness.

Blogger is tweaking on me.

Jackee said...

Aww! He'll forever be in my heart after the Better off Dead days. :o)

And my secretest of secrets? The Call is supposed to be this month, but I fear it will never come. Ever.

Have a great week!

Jen said...

I think I have a crush too... ;)

Kathryn said...

John Cusack??? Be still my heart...

Jolene Perry said...

Oh my gosh - one of the BEST Movies ever!
Love HIM. In anything, or nothing... or whatever.

Palindrome said...

My secret is: I will eat at least a sleeve of oreos in one sitting. I could eat more. 24-eos is my limit.

May your pen be mighty

About Me

My Photo
Lola Sharp
My name is Lola. (I'm not a showgirl) Yes, L-O-L-A Lola. It's the least of my worries. Let's move on, shall we? This blog is mostly about my misadventures on the journey to publication and beyond. My passion for lush prose, quirky characters, art, music, literature, performing arts and anything creative will be a major theme here. This journey of mine will not always be pretty. Much like rubbernecking a train wreck, I know sometimes you just can't help but look at the carnage that is often my life. So strap on your neck brace, helmet and 5-point harness and come along for the ride! Licentia poetica.
