the pub
So Fri. was NineMoons last day at work before she disappears into a haze of studying and exams. So as is usual she had a bit of a night out. I only turned up to the pub (where that stairs comes from) at 8, she and her work cronies had been there since around 6. Lets just say it was an interesting night ;)

A certain fella, lets call him Roy, got a little drunk, and, when the discussion turned to terrorists, bombers and America, got a little upset. I’m not saying I wasn’t involved. I certainly wasn’t disagreeing with him purely for enjoyment purposes (can you see my innocent face?). Trouble is when drink is involved other things often surface don’t they. Roy threw a bit of a wobbly and stormed out.

I still thought it was quite funny, but felt a bit sorry for him because once he sobered up he’d realise what a plonker he’d been. But the situation hugely improved when he came back with the perfect politican’s apology. You know they say sorry but blame everyone else anyway. Which resulted in him and NM getting in an argument. I left them too it, still amused, and headed to the loo. Thereby missing the classist accusation that would’ve pleased Lenin, and that left NM speechless[1] .

There were tears and arguments, and standing around in the freezing cold, and Roy storming out and returning on numerous occasions and then returning, before eventually we all headed for home.

So should I tell you my guilty secret?

I still think it was hi-larious.

And yes, Roy did feel a plonker this morning and rang NM to make an “abject apology”. Poor fella.

Before all this excitement however we did amuse ourselves at one point discussing you exactly would be our 5 celebs, you know the ones you’d take away to a fantasy island. My five, in no particular order were:

  • Sean Bean
  • Viggo Mortensen
  • Vin Diesel
  • Vince Vaughn
  • Keifer Sutherland

So who are your five?

Despite all this excitement NM, Copper-copper and I still got up at 9ish this morning and headed off to watch the Wedding Crashers. C-C hadn’t seen it before, but me and NM had. Glad to report that it was just as good the second time round. And yes, this film is the reason Vaughn made my list last night.

[1] – Yes I did say I missed this, so all this is hearsay and secondhand reporting, who cares? (back)

    Sean Bean???

    Jeff Goldblum (you can say you heard it here first)
    George Clooney
    Owen Wilson (I am seeing the Wedding Crashers as soon as it's released in France)
    Eddie Izzard
    And I don't know, I'm open to suggestions for the last one, somebody French, just to, you know… And no, not Samuel Le Bihan ;)

  2. Fence says:

    Are those question marks after Sean Bean's name because you don't like him, or because you've never heard of him?

    He played Boromir in LOTR, and an IRA terrorist in Patriot Games, and is just plain sexy.

    I've only seen Le Bihan in Brotherhood of the Wolf and I agree, no :) I did think your man who played Thomas was quite cute: Jérémie Renier But more in a "ah, he's so cute" way rather than a sexy-cute way.

  3. Anne says:

    No, it was a "he's way past his prime now" series of ???
    And yes, I agree with Jérémie Rénier.

  4. Fence says:

    I am shocked and apalled at that statement. Shocked I tell you. Sean could never be past his best.

    Honestly *shakes head* this from the woman who listed Jeff Goldblum :)

  5. NineMoons says:

    Ah, poor Roy. He must have been back at work today with everyone who witnessed his degradation. Being drunk in front of friends is bad enough but in front of work peoples is dreadful…

    Current top five:

    Nathan Fillion
    Vince Vaughn
    Vin Diesel (back round PB & F&F era)
    Paul Bettany
    Matthew McFadyen

    Please note I am in total agreement with your five, I'm just trying to be a bit different so that no clone accusations are thrown around…

  6. Heather says:

    Your list is pretty good. I think I would pick:

    Viggo Mortensen (I love his voice and his…aura (?). He just seems so calm and happy and at peace with himself. And I could listen to him talk all day long. Or sing. I loved his voice in RotK)

    Owen Wilson (for his wit and charm)

    Mark Ruffalo (I know, it might sound weird, but he was cute in 13 going on 30)

    Orlando Bloom (please don't think bad of me, but I just love his eyes! and I'm a sucker for anyone with an accent)

    Matt Damon (I have had a crush on him since Good Will Hunting!)

    Sean Bean would have to be a runner up, I loved him in LotR and he looks great in the trailers for Flightplan. He's yummy.

  7. Fence says:

    You'll have to send him a text and ask if anything *fun* happened at work NM.

    Heather, should I admit I've no idea who Mark Ruffalo is? The name is familar though. I'll go google

  8. NineMoons says:

    And I'm changing Spook to Joaquin. Can't believe I forgot Joaquin…
    Did you know there's a film out there which has both Joaquin and Vaughn in it?

  9. Fence says:

    Ahhhhh, I forgot him too.

    I may swap Viggo for him.

    OR, and this is risky, increase the number to 6!!

  10. NineMoons says:

    Well, it depends really. Top Five guys – ones you'd like to *ahem* or ones you'd like to marry and have multiple children and grow old with.
    Nathan Fillion – with a passel of critters underfoot? Possible…
    Vince Vaughn – marriage material? I don't know. But you'd have fun finding out. And so tall…
    Vin Diesel (back round PB & F&F era) – Strictly :-)
    Paul Bettany probably but with potential for more
    Matthew McFadyen – get past the brooding and the pain and maybe he'd be a long-termer.
    Joaquin Phoenix – anyway you could get him ;-)

  11. NineMoons says:

    dammit, that was supposed to say 'ones you'd like to ahem' but it got fucked. So the whole thing reads like insanity…

  12. Fence says:

    Behold my power! To turn insanity into just plain rambling :)

  13. Heather says:

    Fence, there are a couple of men here I haven't heard of either! But I am having loads of fun looking them up!! ;Þ

  14. Fence says:

    I'm glad. And I found your fella. Should've remembered him from Eternal Sunshine … Still, at least I knew I'd heard of him right :)
