Happy Birthday Jamie!
Happy Birthday, Jamie Fraser!
First of all, Happy Birthday to our favorite red-heided Scot! James Alexander Malcolm MacKenzie Fraser was born on May 1, 1721, so today marks the 288th anniversary of his birth.
And to the rest of you, I hope you have a happy Beltane, May Day, or whatever else you may be celebrating today. (Even if it's just TGIF!)
April Poll Results
Here are the results of the April poll:
Who is your favorite villain in the OUTLANDER series?
- 30.37% - Geillis Duncan
- 25.92% - Black Jack Randall
- 25.19% - Stephen Bonnet
- 8.15% - Phillip Wylie
- 5.19% - Laoghaire
- 2.22% - William Buccleigh MacKenzie
- 1.48% - Harley Boble
- 0.74% - Richard Brown
- 0.74% - Other
- 0% - Arvin Hodgepile (he got no votes, which is very understandable!)
The results turned out much closer than I expected. For the record, I didn't vote in this poll, but if I had, I would have voted for Jack Randall. He's one of the most unforgettable villains I've ever encountered in a work of fiction. Despicable, to be sure -- I don't know if I will ever forgive him for what he did to Jamie -- but unforgettable.
Please take a moment to vote in my new poll for May!
I may not be posting as often next week. I'm having the interior of my house painted, all except my computer room and the master bathroom. With all the walls stripped bare, it feels almost as though I'm moving out of the house (and is turning out to be nearly as stressful), though I am not actually going anywhere. With luck, it will all be over by the end of next week. The painters will be working from May 6 - 8.
