Happy Valentine’s Day, Sassenach!

Feb 13, 2014 by

I’m sure Sam Heughan is too busy filming the last episodes of Outlander, Season One, to send his legions of fans a Valentine card, so I thought I’d help out.

You are really getting TWO Valentine’s Day gifts with this meme:  a sweet card and yummy Scottish eye candy!

Here’s Looking At You, Sam

 For many Outlander fans, scanning social media for news and photos from the Scottish production set has become a daily event.    After all, it’s winter here in the western hemisphere, cold weather and snow are keeping many of us housebound, and the debut of Jamie and Clare’s onscreen love affair seems too far away to even contemplate.  At the risk of being labeled a “middle-age housewife” breathily caught up in Outlander’s Harlequin Romance-esque plotby Variety (read the reporter’s snarky review HERE), I must say I look forward to these goodies from Starz.

Of all the fictional fantasies, in all the books, in all the world…

Starz must have heard my middle-aged cries in the wilderness because they just released a new version of the Outlander trailer, with the audio equivalent of a fun-size candy bar at the end.   Even better, there’s a new Scots Gaelic Outlander lesson in pronouncing mo nighean donn , a term of endearment used by Jamie for Claire, meaning “my brown-haired lass.”  Now, THIS is something I can sink my teeth into, like a bar of rich, dark chocolate, the kind that has those little bits of orange zest inside.

Sam Heughan,  this could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
