I do believe that the comparison isn't strictly incestuous: "she practically grew up with him. For her it will probably be like having to snog her brother."

I'm sure that I could bring myself to overcome the awkwardness of the situation.

And my mind has just changed the lipstick shade, added eye makeup and cast him in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.

Aww - I love that you didn't instantly notice the speech impediment (rhotacism) which led to his nickname.

I feel so powerless here on the other side of the country. Have donated money but I wish I could do more.

I just watched this video. The idiot with the 5-inch stilettos, creeping along, . . . will finally get to work at quitting time.

Sir Mark will always be my first love but I certainly wouldn't decline a fling with Pat Keegan. Or Peter Fraiman or Colin Ayres or Tony Kay or Clark Devlin. Or Damian or Dr Quincy or Tavvy or Percy or..... And I'd be more than happy to watch Mickey Ryan/Fredrick Line/Chaz. :D Wow, I'm a complete flo...

Diablo Cody is most certainly not to everyone's taste but her mixture of open personal pain and witty (confrontational) repartee appeals to me. It's been interesting to read the opinions on United States of Tara. This is a response on the matter by Karen Overhill. Karen is the subject of the book Sw...

Could those of you who are admitting that you would buy the boxset if there was no alternative, please stop? Why confirm it to the marketing department? ;-)

And Worcestershire is Woostersheer. Crazy mixed up language of ours designed to make foreigners sound daft. ;-) I also love that there are regional ways of pronouncing things. In Western Australia, we pronounce Derby "durbee" instead of "darbee" and Albany is pronounced "al-bah-nee" instead of "awl-...

Oh the awkward sex scene was more difficult for me to watch than the torture and the execution scenes. Although I did cringe when Michael was telling himself that he was a good person with a code. I think it was a sort of community service announcement that few relationships can live up to that sort...

I'm enjoying the analysis but I think it's the fact that some people just can't spell. If I played a lose-loose drinking game whilst browsing the internet, I'd be permanently sozzled. Really? My middle name is Denise and none of my English relatives have ever pronounced it "DENeez". I'm having The R...

You can all share Jason Claus amongst yourselves, I'm sticking with Hanukkah Isaacs.

That means eight straight nights making sure the menorah stays alight.
