Welcome to the world of the Vincent D'Onofrio obsessed - and a bit of real life thrown in.

A joke for the aged

I usually have NCIS on while I'm blogging on a Saturday evening, and it seems like a reasonably good programme. I particularly enjoy David McCallum's appearances as the Medical Examiner Donald "Ducky" Mallard, so I was amused at this exchange between team leader Gibbs and team member Caitlin a couple of weeks ago:


Caitlin: Gibbs, what did Ducky look like when he was young?
Gibbs: Like Ilya Kuryakin.

I think he's aged very well.



The Benefactress

The wonderful, kind, generous Eliza has struck again. I received the latest Bobby episode of S6 on Friday, just three days after you US ladies.

I have no idea how she does it, but I am so glad and grateful that she does!

This man is just beautiful, and I could stare at this picture all day.

Interesting Positions

It fascinates me how narrow Vincent's hips and how slim his legs legs are compared to those broad shoulders.


All hunkered down.


All squashed in.


A rare rear view with (sadly) clothed butt.


Hey, Bobby, move the tie and turn the torch around!

Cheeky Vincent





Thanks to Eliza, Frogger, DNY and anyone else who did tsome of these lovely caps and who I can unfortunately not identify.

Long Lost Loves

This is the opera singer Sean Rea. I was inspired to write this after an online chat with JoJo.

I met Sean in the early 1980s, when he was singing with English National Opera. He also sang at the Royal Opera House with Pavarotti et al. We dated loosely for next 12 years. He's nearly 13 years older than me, and like our beloved Vincent is 6'4". He has a gorgeous bass voice that can melt you, and growls like a tiger post-coitally... And he has a great sense of humour. He now lives in the northwest of England and is no longer on anyone's radar, probably because he had a nice line in threatening to punch out the lights of important people in the management of opera companies. He didn't suffer fools gladly!

Can you imagine how many women used to throw themselves at him? He was not even tempted to remain faithful to anyone.

I kind of gave up on men after him. I didn't think anyone could equal what we had, but I knew to have stayed with him forever would have been a disaster. I didn't think anyone could ever make me feel like that again.

Now there's Vincent, who pushes all the same buttons. Only I have no way to meet him. And anyway, where would I put all those extra pounds I've put on since giving up the horizontal exercise I used to enjoy with Sean.

This is what we should have had last night










Hallmark is showing Season 1, and last night should have been the second episode, Art. But they always know better over at Hallmark.

This is what we got

Smothered



The shoulders in the shirtsleeves.









The Black Teeshirt of Hotness.


That damn book in the way!




The Jeans.

I don't have a blog

I keep creating these collages on Picasa, which has a "blog this" button. I press this and wait. Befoore I went over to Beta-Blogger, it sometimes posted, but now it can't find an associated blog, and asks me if I want to open one.
Anyone know what I can do to persuade Picasa that this blog actually exists?

By the way, I just couldn't pass these pictures by without doing something with them. I think they're particularly lovely.


I just never tire of seeing him towering over people. I'd so love to have him tower over me.

I just love this picture. It combines so many attractive elements.





Thanks to DNY and the other contributors I cannot easily identify.

Liza with the Luck

Just found this picture thanks to a link on theReel. No idea what the writing is on it, but it doesn't interfere with the lovely Vincent, so who cares?

If Ms Minnelli puts her hand on my man's arm I will be forced to take severe action!


Protecting your computer


I used to have Norton Anti-Virus on my computer, but when it needed renewing the renewal didn't "take", and I kept getting notices that it had run out, even though I had paid a substantial sum for it. After many ignored emails, eventually Norton refunded my money, and I bought McAfee instead.

When a virus knocked out my direct link to my main email service last year, the store recommended that I install a spyware programme, and they put Webroot SpySweeper on it for me.

I just had a renewal reminder, and renewed online, requesting and paying for a backup cd. I hoped this would take care of any problem like the one I had with Norton.

The cd arrived, and the renewal duly failed to be acknowledged online, with a message that my subscription runs out in (now) 11 days. So I tried to update it using the cd - and I get a message that it's an older version than the one I already have installed!

Looking back at Webroot's newsletters, I see that there is a place where they invite you to send them your spyware horror story. I don't think they expected one about themselves, but that's what they've got. I'll let you know if they cure the problem, refund me, or fail on both counts. Then you can make your own decisions about whether it's worth your while to use this company to protect your computers.
