So, tomorrow, Verizon is coming in the afternoon because we are switching from Cablevision back to Verizon Fios. Because we are going to lose everything we had DVR'd, I have been spending the entire evening trying to watch the movies I recorded. I watched three Hallmark Channel / Lifetime Channel Christmas movies, another movie set in the California Wine Country and a movie that was on Cable not long ago that I have wanted to get on DVD for years, Dreaming of Joseph Lees. It stars Rupert Graves as a geologist who lost his leg in a quarry accident and it is about a cousin of his who has pined after him for years. An all around feel good movie (not), but I must say, Rupert Graves is just dreamy in this movie. I have one more I probably won't get to as it is almost midnight. Anyway, after watching hours of Christmas romance, love in the country and a tale of twisted, tragic love, it is time to get my swoon on. This week's swoon comes from City of Ashes (Mortal Instruments Book 2) by Cassandra Clare.

"She felt the brush of his lips, light at first, and her own opened automatically beneath the pressure. Almost against her will she felt herself go fluid and pliant, stretching upward to twine her arms around his neck the way a sunflower twists toward the light. His arms slid around her, his hands knotting in her hair, and the kiss stopped being gentle and became fierce, all in a single moment like tinder flaring into a blaze. Clary heard a sound like a sigh rush through the Court, all around them, a wave of noise, but it meant nothing, was lost in the rush of her blood through her veins, the dizzying sense of weightlessness in her body."
