Men Don't Cry... Sticks and stones may break my bones...

But words will never hurt me...

I is back mes bloggy loves, with an upset stomach to boot, so please wear that Swine Flu mask I know you've got at the ready - Try the desk drawer, I'm sure I saw one in there...

As you will be aware, I have been unable to blog, in spite of lugging my trusty laptop up hill and down dale - What passes for 'High Speed Broadband Connection' in modern hotels today is laughable...

So, I swam in the hotel's pool under the wingspan of green Liver Birds, I wrote longhand, I ate fruit and watched TV in my room - I visited the Albert Dock and the Superlambbanana - Don't ask - I'll get there later next week... And I missed you, I did - Lots and lots!

A toute a l'heure - See you soonest, mes sweethearts, and thank you for still visiting me, even while I was champing at the bit and Wi-Fi-less in the Pool of Liver! Much love - Mwah! Mwah! Hugs?! xxx

TIM ROTH

I can't do anything else. So if this falls through, I'm screwed.

WILLEM DAFOE

The worst thing is to get involved with people who aren't passionate about what they're doing.

MICHAEL MADSEN

Encourage your kids' artistic side. Toughen up everything else.

FOREST WHITAKER

I'm an actor. And I guess I've done so many movies I've achieved some high visibility. But a star? I guess I still think of myself as kind of a worker ant.

LAURENCE FISHBURNE

I think of myself as being a relatively intelligent man who is open to a lot of different things and I think that questioning our purpose in life and the meaning of existence is something that we all go through at some point.

DUSTIN HOFFMAN

One thing about being successful is that I stopped being afraid of dying. Once you're a star you're dead already. You're embalmed.

GABRIEL BYRNE

From doing A Moon for the Misbegotten, I've learned that nobody's love can save anybody else. There are people who want to die, and nothing or nobody will stop them. The only one who can save you is yourself.

ED HARRIS

I made career decisions that came from the part of me who wanted to shun the limelight.

KRIS KRISTOFFERSON

Like a bird on a wire,
Like a drunk in a midnight choir
I have tried in my way to be free...

Chère Boucle d'Or,

Je suis la première, quelle honneur.

Swimming in the pool of Liver, indeed, no doubt 'twas what made you bilious!

Les hommes qui pleurent and a quote from he who says he is my man (he is in Paris in July but the tickets are too expensive). Another day that you have made for me.

I love the kisses on your new décor : they really are.....

Grosses bises

Michael Madsen! I think I need a moment alone...

Ok - welcome back, my dear lovely lady! I'm sorry you've been feeling a bit nasty. Hope that clears up quickly.

Have a wonderful weekend and I'll miss you this week while I'm gone.
