Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition....

Thanks to an incredibly kind hearted fellow Scot who picked up on my list, last night’s viewing was Sliding Doors….John Hannah…definitely high up on my list of gorgeous men….not sure if it’s the accent or the face…probably a combination of the two!

I do enjoy Sliding Doors…it really is my kind of movie, and has one of my favourite lines of any movie…the only thing is that being the cynical and rather untrusting person that I am, I can never be too sure that their final meeting in the elevator means that they do actually live happily ever after….

I guess I have to work on this rather suspicious streak of mine!!!

I absolutely LOVED his speech at his partner's funeral in 'Four Weddings..'...I like him in anything he is in and have both the Mummy and Mummy II where he plays such a - different yet brilliant role

The Funeral Blues
Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
Scribbling on the sky the message He Is Dead.
Put crepe bows round the white necks of public doves,
Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

He was my North, my South, my East and West.
My working week and my Sunday rest,
My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
I thought that love would last forever; I was wrong.

The stars are not wanted now: put out every one;
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood;
For nothing now can ever come to any good.
