Birthday Boy and Lusting...

Yesterday was Himself's birthday, and as he'd already had his main present (a pair of shoes), we started off celebrating on Saturday meeting a mutual friend for a drink. He'd had loads of cards – nearly all from women I would add – and friends of mine (I can tell by the writing on the envelopes).

“Of course,” said Deb. “It just shows how highly you're regarded.”

He went a bit pink after that and got up to get himself a brandy.

So yesterday was Fun Day. We got to Truro early afternoon, went to Tesco to get him a present - and ended up with some badly needed thermal socks – and then – the Fun Bit..... Quantum of Solace.

I happen to think Daniel Craig is one of the sexiest men around. I quite appreciate many do not, but he Does It for me. So I sat and prepared myself for 2 hours of drooling.

The only criticism, from Himself, is that while there is a huge amount of action (for which read violence) there weren't a lot of laughs with those old one-liners. Apparently they'd tried and it just didn't work. Mind you, as I pointed out, this is a man with a mission – and it's Revenge for the woman he loved, who died. So you're not going to get a lot of laughs.

The action was non stop (which meant I had to hide for quite a bit) but the rest of it was – well, sigh.... Lovely.

Afterwards we met up with some friends who bought Himself a birthday drink in the pub up the road and Andrea and I sat wondering if we were doing to dream about Daniel C that night.

Sadly, neither of us did.

Hope Himself had a good birthday! :-)

Daniel Craig doesn't do it for me (we'd be good friends on a night out, fp - it's essential to be attracted to different types) He has a great body and those lovely blue eyes but, as C.Hitchens says, laughter is the best way to a woman's er... heart. Of course a pretty face and a great body doesn't hurt! LOL

and he folded her in his manly arms and... ooh!

You'd have to kill me to get to him before me! He is gorgeous and the best Bond ever. Sounds like that birthday present was more for you instead of himself!

Elaine said...

I think I'm just weird. I never like the men other people like.

I had a thing for Brucie once.
(And I don't mean Willis, I mean Forsyth.)

I'm serious.

Flowerpot said...

lane - I'll keep hoping!

Phil - just as well we're all different. I don't uusally go for blue eyes - having said that, realised Himself has blue eyes. Whoops...

Flowerpot said...

MOB - well, I knew I was quite safe saying, "would you like to see James Bond, darling?" what man wouldn't?!!

elaine - as I said to Phil, just as well we're all different. Brucie doesnt do it for me but he's made a lot of women happy!

JJ said...

Hmm, I thought DC was rather lovely in the last one, but James Bond's not really me... Why can't they give us all the tasty bits without the violence?

Flowerpot said...

JJ - that's EXACTLY what I thought!

rosiero said...

Good luck to you. We all deserve a bit of eye candy and it is just as well we are all different. Now where is my pin-up poster of Ken Dodd!!!!

Flowerpot said...

rosiero - now I do draw the line at Ken Dodd!!

Trubes said...

I havn't seen the movie but I do think he has the most divine voice....that does it for me....along with his rugged good looks gorgeous eyes and wonderful body. Oh and hhe can act too.....drool... drool.. dribble.. dribble...Ah well a girl can dream eh Flowerpot!
Incidentally he comes from my neck of the woods..Merseyside...does that give me any special priviledges? Ha!

Trubes said...

P.S. I got so carried away that I forgot to wish Himself 'Happy Birthday'. xx

Di.x

Sally said...

I do like the old "James Bonds" with the funny one liners though..... and I'm more of a David Tennant man.... Will probably go to see it though all the same!

Pat Posner said...

Belated Birthday Greetings to 'Himself'.

Flowerpot said...

trubes - I quite agree with all that. Sigh........ oh and thanks for the birthday wishes!

Flowerpot said...

Sally - I quite agree. I thought the old one liners were great - perhaps they'll come back though with another script.

Pat - many thanks!

Akelamalu said...

Next to Sean Connery, Daniel Craig is the best 007 ever and I'm not really a Bond fan at all.

Belated Happy Birthday to Himself, sounds like you had a great weekend celebrating. :)

Flowerpot said...

Ak - hope yuou had a good time in Poland - I quite agree about DC. They all make Bond different I think.

Grump said...

Sounds wonderful, I'm sure you will have that dream soon. Maybe it just took awhile for the action to be digested.
Tilly sends love to Mollie.
Woofx

Flowerpot said...

Grump, Yes that's exactly what another friend of mine said. "There must be loads of people dying to dream about him," she said. "He's probably rather booked up at the moment."
Woof from Mollie to Tilly too!

Crystal Jigsaw said...

Happy Birthday to Himself!! Loads of people seen the Bond movie this week. Can't be doing with all that action!

ChrisH said...

Oi, I thought it was his birthday - not yours!! Anyway, hope a good time was had by both... wish I could have joined you, sigh!

Flowerpot said...

Crystal - no it was much too exciting for me!

Chrish - I wish you could have joined us too!

Ellee Seymour said...

I agree with you about Daniel Craig. But I would like to see him smile a little more.
