All right Alan Partridge!

She probs has a sphincter that would tourniquet your penile effort to death anyway.



Perhaps yours, but NOT mine.


Hmm.

In fairness, there is zero perspective in either picture so it's anyone's guess a) what they are photos of and b) how close they are.

No, I'm sorry. The jury's decision is final and they say I would RUIN Jet.

Okay, here are some age appropriates for you:

Amy Adams
Eva Mendes
Sienna Miller
Duchess Of Cambridge

Off you go!


Interesting. To be fair to me I was thinking current Winslet/Jolie*

On your list: Amy Adams - lovely but too young surely? Also looks very like Nicole Kidman who is definitely another one of my 90's' would fly into her arse in a dream'
Eva Mendes: If and when I find African men attractive then I shall be looking her up as a female alternative.
Sienna Miller: Fair shout. Pretty but definitely not sexually adventurous which means wasting a dream flight.
Duchess of Cambridge: Good shout too but I assume royal sex equals boring sex. I can see her now saying in a really plummy voice "Not that hole" and me relying "Are you serious? That's only your mouth. I've barely got started yet"

I've enjoyed this chat. Thanks Span.

You ever hear from him TT?

Did he sort the drama out with buying his wife back or whatever it was?

I was very concerned at the time, obviously.

I have heard from him a few times as I was supposed to be going back there this year, but not enquired after his life because when he is not in front of me I have realised I care less. I am so fickle like that.

I'm SO pleased you said that. I love Amy Adams. She was amazing in Enchanted, I cried when she cried at that couple getting divorced - there's no one that could do that so convincingly.

Anyway, hold your hat TT for this fantastic reveal: she is FORTY TWO!!!!

Sienna Miller is SO pretty, she's long been one of my favourites. I'm sure she's very sexually adventurous too, TT, plesae don't rule her out.

I'm not so bothered on the other two, I just know they're 35+, from my exhaustive research into women who are past their twenties but still perfectly attractive okay? No reason.

Whether or not you look old at a young age isn't so much about how old you really are as much as whether you've been blessed with good genes. Take Lucy Liu for example, she's 48 and she's still holding up well.

You horror! The impossible agelessness of Lucy Liu is one of the very many reasons why I love Elementary.

Shit the actual bed. I've been watching Amy Adams all these years thinking it was Isla Fisher. I now have no idea which films they've each been in.

eta Sienna Miller is well pretty. So is Kate Beckinsale and KatefromLost.

Yes but I don't have internet so I have to wait for the DVDs.
Did you think S2 was not as good as S1?

I watched them all together so it was essentially all one series to me. But no, I didn't find myself thinking 'this started getting shitter halfway through'.

Damien Thorn wrote:Lethal Weapon. The terrible-idea-on-any-terms telly series reboot, with a Wayans. It could only ever be dreadful (in fact I even had a challenge going with a friend as to which of us would manage to watch more minutes of it before quitting in despair), so it was quite some surprise that it was genuinely good fun and entertaining all the way through.

It looked big budget and was well put together - directed by McG, remember him off the nineties? Decent jokes, reasonable stupid action, and a better-than-Mel-Gibson portrayal of Riggs.

Yes, really.

It's on ITV player if you want, but you won't.



e: oh, also the next episode of Inside No9, about crosswords. Just horrid.



I watched Lethal Weapon last night.

Yeah, it was ok but I didn't love it.

1. Murtaugh annoying
2. Riggs good but not as good as Mel
3. Too short - it was a film's worth of plot crammed into about half an hour with full time given to the mad chase bits so the actual plot was chopped into almost literally 2 second cuts
4. It just made me want to watch the originals...

Payback is the best thing he's done though, even better than Mad Max.

Mad Max is quite rubbish, although Mad Max 2 is better.

Second series of Taboo confirmed. At the rate I go, I'll be lucky to have finished the first one before it's on.

I watched the first episode of The Replacement, yesterday - it was very good! It was about an architect who gets pregnant and suspects her replacement is out to take her place.

Mr Span didn't want to watch it at first because it was "about women", which I chided him for. Then I started complaining about it being well implausible because everyone in the office was Scottish - what are the odds of that?! What weird theme office would be all Scottish? Anyway, imagine my etc when I realised it was set in Scotland!! But they were behaving perfectly normally in every other way so I hadn't realised.

So anyway if you can get past the PC gone mad of it being mainly women and all Scottish, then I recommend it.

Fun fact - that was at the comedy club I used to work at.

Span, it sounds like the best show in the entire world apart from it being about women.

It was in Glasgow Dis! And I must say that I was thinking 'typical that they choose the prettiest street in London for the main characters to live on like in every Richard Curtis film' and it turns out it was a Glasgow street. So there you are, I learned that Glasgow's nice (unless that was the prettiest street in Glasgow)

Glasgow is quite pretty. There's quite a lot of shitty parts like most cities but it's better than it's reputation, I think. I'm not sure where it was filmed in the city but there's a lot of streets that look like 'those' sort of London office/posh flat streets.

It's also quite chameleonic for filming. This shot from World War Z is meant to be downtown Philadelphia (I think?) and although it looks properly American, it's pretty much completely unchanged bar the cars and signs from Glasgow City Centre - I was having lunch just out of shot when they filmed this:
