It’s been a rough week between a sick child, a printer breakdown, plumbing and insurance issues. Feeling tired, drained and uninspired, I couldn’t even draft a post until I thought about happier days—that is, this past Super Bowl Sunday.

My husband was delighted with the Giants’ win, but my daughters and I enjoyed the evening in our own way. We watched the first part of The Lord of the Rings, since my youngest just finished the book.

I was struck again by how many gorgeous men are in LOTR.

There are the Hot Men: Aragorn (Viggo Mortensen), Boromir (Sean Bean) and his brother Faramir (David Wenham, who joked that he got the part because both he and Sean Bean have big noses), and Eomer (Karl Urban).

Then you’ve got the Hot Elves: Legolas (Orlando Bloom), Elrond (Hugo Weaving) and Celeborn (Marton Csokas).

And finally, perhaps a bit old and a bit short respectively, but still attractive in their own way: the Hot Wizard, Gandalf (Ian McKellan), and the Hot Hobbit, Frodo (Elijah Wood).

I’m feeling better now. So I hope I’m forgiven for going a bit off topic from the Regency!

Are any of you Lord of the Rings fans? Who’s your favorite guy from the series? Have I missed any?
