According to Diane...........


Humn on reflection?
It's only a quick blog today I have been extra busy and have not even had my usual ' breakfast blog moment' with a cup of milicarno as yet : the wind has demolished the duck house during the morning, which gave the hysterical runners something else to get their slimlined knickers in a twist about and
I have spent most of the morning repairing it, then had to go down to Prestatyn to walk my sister's dog before walking my own in between preparing supper and retrieving Camilla from the riding stables field yet again.
The gale force wind has unsettled her, even though her dreadful crash landing of yesterday has not quite put her off from spreading her wings, so to speak. I wouldn't mind as much if she had the sense to fly back home.... But she's a classy Canadian gal ( like so many are) and prefers to be carried back home, wrapped in an old woollen overcoat.
Anyhow I have 2 minutes or so before I go out to meet my sister in law, so just have enough time to thank Diane over at HEART SHAPED for her kind, " I think you actually look like Russell Crowe from Les Misérables" comment from yesterday's blog. It did tickle me somewhat.......even though his face nowadays does have the look of a couple of fat birds wrestling under a duvet
(Listen I'll the take the compliment in the spirit it was given)
It also got me to thinking just who do others 'here' resemble from the world of celebrity ? Now I know I have mused a little about this before..as we have already debated that Tom Stephenson is the spit of John Hurt with a hangover...but who do YOU think you look like?
I would be interested to know
Anyhow, I am already late...I have not had time to even wash my face, so disguising the awful windswept hairstyle with a hat and covering up the spilled coffee stains down my front with the same coat I wrapped camilla in.... I am off out
god I'm a classy date
RUSS CROWE eat your aussie heart out

    Weather was so ruddy awful here this morning that the dogs with the wind up their arses got round our usual route in double quick time and the Vicar offered me shelter in the church cos I looked like a drowned rat! No wonder I'm in therapy and thank god your ravings get me through the day dear boy :)

    John, hold the camera and see that you are correctly positioned, then look directly at the lens and snap. Love the chapeau BTW.

  26. I can see the Russell/John comparison thing.....bet you are a much nicer bloke than him though. Many many years ago people would tell me I looked like a cross between Carrie Fisher and Julie Covington.....Rock Follies was on at the time and I had short hair but truth be told I resembled Kate Williams from Love thy Neighbour more......
    now I am a dead spit of 'saggy baggy middle aged woman'.

  29. God, she is so right. You DO look like Russell Crowe. And on one of Russell Crowe's good days!

    I was once told I look like Alan Alda. (Do you even know who that is?) I wasn't thrilled. Another time I was told I looked like someone hanging in the American Portrait Gallery in Washington, D.C. (a painting, if that wasn't clear). It turned out to be an awful ponce in tights and spit curls. I was even less thrilled. Give me Russell Crowe any day.

  30. LOL at the comments, esp Wanda! Les Dawson?? Love the photo of you as you are about to embark on your classy date. I wish I could say I resembled Nigella Lawson (before she went on a diet) but Miriam Margolyes would be more on the mark.

  31. My goodness, I would like to print off that bottom photo as a pin up for my notice board - now that's a face you could really rely on in a crisis (particularly if it was a medical one!)
    When I was young (and pretty daft) I always modelled myself on Jean Simmonds. As to who I look like now - i would like to think it was Vanessa Redgrave (one of my all time favourites) but when I showed my hairdresser a photo of her earlier this week and suggested that he copy her hairstyle on my hair he was, shall we say, brutally honest. I try not to look in the mirror more than is necessary these days.
    Sorry about the duck house - has happened to lots of such things today I would guess - and not all would be as lucky as your feathered friends, who have somewhere to sleep tonight because you went out in horrible weather and mended it. Ten Brownie points there .

  35. When I was in my early 20's and very skinny, I was told that I looked just like Charlotte Rampling. Now that's not such a bad thing except that it was at the time she was in Georgy Girl and everyone hated her!!! (It was because I had hooded eyes, I think!) My favourite was when someone who I saw every day insisted on calling me Elizabeth Montgomery! Nowadays I'm told I look like Dawn French! Which isn't so bad, I guess, as she does have a very pretty face -- but I am quite a bit taller than she and not quite so round!

    And, I agree, your resemblance to Russell Crow is quite impressive!

  38. At Dinnington Comprehensive School in the late 70s, kids reckoned that I looked like the TV detective Eddie Shoestring played by Trevor Eve so some of them called me Bootlace. As I didn't possess a television at the time I never saw one episode of "Shoestring". Now I look like Mr Blobby!

  39. You gorgeous thing, you! Russel Crowe can eat his heart out for sure! In my teens (with a curvacious body and long blonde hair - really!) I was told I looked like Bridget Bardot. (does anyone remember her?)Now on the eve of my 60th birthday, I hope I don't look as wrinkled as she did in her fifties but she fought for animal causes long before it became fashionable, so I'll always admire her ! Today I'd love to look like Joanna Lumley but my hair is too short. Mmm. Thanks for a fun post, John.

  40. When I saw Les Mis this week I did think the same thing. However, as I think he's horny as, then this all starts to get a bit wierd!!! Nx

  42. Here's that wonderful arse that I spoke of in my earlier comment. I wish I could post it to my blog, but my parents look at it every day and they think I'm a good girl.
    I'm pretty good at being good most of the time, but my weakness is a good set of buns.
