Mary Birdsong


As a single woman living in Los Angeles, I have done my share of online dating.  But I officially decided to eschew all dating sites a little over a month ago.  I’m done.  And it feels good.  I’ve decided to just live my life, in the flesh, and if I meet HIS flesh? Then great.  I don’t care if it doesn’t happen til I’m 65.  I can wait if he’s the right guy.  But I am tired of my love life feeling more like homework, or a series of bad job interviews.  That’s just not sexy to me.

But you know what IS?

Travis Fimmel as The Vikings’ protagonist “Ragnar Lothbrok.” The 8th century’s “Ax Man”


Sigh… when he’s not beheading innocent monks in Ireland, he’s such a sweeeeet-heart!

Ragnar Lothbrok, I cannot resist.  I am hooked.  I even love the way he (played by Travis Fimmel) over-annunciaTes all of his ConsonanTs. (And for a man who seems to have made his living primarily as a model before this, I am pretty impressed with his acting chops thus far.  And his abs, too.)

If Game Of Thrones is the domain of closet-nerd dudes who fall just outside the realm of the D&D crowd, then The History Channel’s new nine-part mini-series The Vikings is more like…

Single Nerdy Girl

Soft-Core Porn.

And for that, I thank ye, History Channel. Thank ye.


If you have a tendency to blink (thus missing my tweet about The History Channel’s new series THE VIKINGS) here it is:

    You are funny. And hot. Any Viking would be lucky to drag you back to his boat.
