Ogle Alert

Ogle alert is not to be mistaken for Google Alert and it’s a heck of a lot more fun.  So hold onto your fanny packs while I introduce you to the two new men in my life – that’s right two.

Paul Wesley aka Stefan Salvatore & Ian Somerhalder aka Damon Salvatore

Hello boys.

For anyone who doesn’t recognize them, they are costars on The Vampire Diaries.  I’ll admit when the series was recommended to me my first thought was “More Vampires?” and they are, but this is really something special.


The obsession with the Salvatores all started with a blog post - an educational blog post.  I can hear you all snickering!  It really was!  We were discussing the transformation of an antagonist into a protagonist (Damon is a great example of more than just being hit by the pretty stick) but then the shirts started coming off…


…what was I saying?...

There’s a heck of a storyline behind the series, but when it comes to romance both of the Salvatore brothers are in love with the same girl.  Who doesn’t love a tortured hero redeemed by love?  However only one of the brooding brothers gets the girl, so there’s also an element of forbidden, unrequited love that ramps up the tension.


Season 1 of The Vampire Diaries is out now and Season 2 isn’t far behind.  So buy it, hire it or bite someone for it because the writers are amazing and the characters are unforgettable.


But wait....


Who doesn’t love a man with a puppy?

Puppies and shirtless men? What could be better?? :-)

Nas Dean said...

Hi Lacey, I'm seriously drooling here...to see season two!

Riya said...

The episodes get better and better. Ian and Paul are the hottest guys on television at the moment, and the characters they play seem sooo real,I get lost in the fantasy!!

Sally Clements said...

I hope he isn't trying to eat that puppy!

Lacey Devlin said...

No, no Sally he's definitely trying to kiss that puppy! Technically, that's Ian not in character as super sexy vampire Damon, but I couldn't help myself...

Nas! I got my hands on season two, although I'm devastated that I have to wait until January for the finale. Whose idea was that?

Having seen a couple of episodes from the second season, I agree with Riya that the episodes are just getting better and better :)

So Lacey, you haven't answered the big question. Are you Team Stefan or Team Damon?

My teens are squealingly Team Damon(the sound when I showed them the puppy picture nearly cracked glass). I'll say I see there point.

Lacey Devlin said...

Oh I'd like to have both in my Christmas stocking Julia ;) The unrequited love makes it difficult not to be on Damon's team and he's got great eyes too. But Stefan is the nice guy... Decision, decisions... I think I might be visiting the Team Damon camp at the moment ;)

It sounds like your teens are a big fan of the bad boy and his one liners. I'll buy you new eardrums for Christmas ;)
