Can't live with 'em...
John/Joseph Merrick (The Elephant Man) once remarked that he was fated to fall in love with every woman he met.
I understand where he's coming from. I spent most of my twenties infatuated with various barmaids, wenches and waitresses. They brought me beer, and they were nice to me. They were young and beautiful. I was doomed.
Well, I've learned that I am, in at least one way, like Joseph/John Merrick. I learn to appreciate the beauty of virtually every woman I interact with, and I often become a little infatuated with them. Tonight I fell in love with another.
It's Greta Christina's fault, really. If she hadn't favourably reviewed the show, I'd never have watched. But tonight, I watched the first two episodes of "Secret Diary of a Call Girl", and I fell in love with Billie Piper.
She's hot, and she's talented. And the show is good. Not great, but smart and sexy.
She may have made the celebrity exception short list, with Anne Hathaway, Keira Knightley, and Jennifer Connelly.
And yes. I am gross.
