Funny - this article is on the London Daily Mail site, but in the "Femail" section.

That's an hysterical article...I love how it turns competitive. Not so thrilled about the "pensioner eligible" characterization!

Russell Crowe is soooooo hot!

"A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening tear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn." Blackadder

To sit with a dog on a hillside on a glorious afternoon is to be back in Eden, where doing nothing was not boring-it was peace.

I had the fortune to meet Russell Crowe when my roommate's band was playing at the Shamrock Fest in DC a couple of years ago. I was backstage -- and so was he.

Real...and no makeup

...flannel shirt
...baggy jeans

...guitar slung to his side
...piercing eyes
...and just before going onstage he gives that simple silent nod and...

Needless to say, I didn't get much of an opportunity to talk about knitting or that famous picture of him with the needles.

They got through a couple of songs and "our" band had to pack up and go -- after playing at the biggest Irish gathering all year in DC, they had another show to play that night further upstate in MD.

Talk about two ships passing in the night.
