It's Cooling Off....

Hmmm, but still hot in my computer room. Just put up another fan...

And speaking of fans, I am a fan of Colin Firth. I was commenting on Lori's blog. She just watched A Single Man with Colin Firth. I forgot it was coming out this past week. Which is funny, cuz I stalked Blockbuster for it, it took awhile for a release date to be announced. I haven't seen it, as it didn't play near me....But I just counted and I own 24 Colin Firth movies.....


It all started with Mr. Darcy, but then I realized he was the cad in "A Circle of Friends" and I love that movie (but haven't been able to get it on DVD) Now I pretty much buy all of his movies, except "The Last Legion" It was bad, just bad, and nothing more can be said....I'm sure I'll buy it at some point when I see it somewhere for a couple of bucks, cuz I need a complete collection...

Now I don't think he is the most handsome or the best actor out there, but I just adore him. He does have the best posture of any actor...and he doesn't take himself too seriously, he has fun with some of his roles (the end scene w/Rupert Everett in St. Trinian's is hysterical!) I just really like him as an actor....Is there anyone you really like???

And yes, I went yarn shopping again - bad girl, bad girl....


4 skeins Koigu. I have yet to make anything from this yarn, but it has such pretty, pretty colors (sorry pics are a bit dull) and 1 skein of Madelinetosh Isadora (lace) in Prairie. It was just so pretty and soft...think it's gonna be a shawl...

You really make me smile, you Firth-maniac.:) Pretty yarn - I'm a maniac about madelinetosh.

I just finished watching Mamma Mia. It's just as much fun each and every viewing!

The yarn is lovely.

I have a real soft spot for John Travolta. I like most of his films and he just seems like a really nice bloke.

I love Colin Firth in Love Actually.
