  • But then he's no Justin Bieber either (thankfully).

     

  • Incidentally, back on topic, my local newspaper reveals the runner who came last on Sunday (far too late to get a medal):

    It seems to suggest he ran all the way too - or at least what, for him, is running.

  • I'm glad someone donated their medal.i would happily have given mine as its not an important race for me image

    Oh dear, I saw an interview with Imogen Stubbs once. She was as interesting as dried grass unfortunately. Nothing she ever did in the way of acting ever made up for that afterwards....image

         

    It wasn't interviewing her and Ms Buffery that I had in mind if I recall correctly! image

  • Mmm, Imogen Stubbs.  Wasn't this scene in a lake or something?  image  She's supposed to live/have lived in Blackheath but I've never seen her.  I did see Terry Waite though, before he moved out to the countryside.  He's definitely older than me, but I don't fancy him.

  • that was nice of someone to donate him a medal, 

  • I think Terry Waite's more the sort of bloke elderly nuns go for. Him and Daniel O'Donnell...image

  • That was the one, Phil! Eminently Googleable - yes, I did just check!

    Terry Waite's beard would at least have given you... "something to hang on to." (c) Lord Flashheart.

     

  • If Flashheart was real he'd actually be quite sexy - especially the Blackadder Goes Forth version...image

    Although Rik Mayall couldn't be less sexy if he tried - odd that image

  • Gina Bellman, Blackeyes!

     

    imageimage etc...

  • Good call! Remember that, though the edge was taken off any (cough) excitement by the fact that I was hallucinating big time having been struck down with the big flu epidemic we had that winter. 

  • STOP IT!!! I'm gonna lose my job if someone is monitoring my internet usage today!!image

  • I'd have donated my medal, as all my friends keep pointing out how much it looks like a Jim'll Fix It badge.

  • Joanne Whalley (-Kilmer), The Singing Detective.  That Dennis Potter had good taste!

    Now on cewrtain occassions i find rik mayall and rowan atkinson sexy.not as sexy as Hugh laurie in his earlier days though

  • Loving the Imogen Stubbs and Gina Bellman references! Thanks for posting the Dean Godwyn article Screamy, I'm sorry but I find that sort of thing inspiring. I can see DF3 rolling his eyes at this. DF3 when is your first marathon btw?

  • I was gonna complete the Dennis Potter set with Keeley Hawes (Lickstip on Your Collar) but it turns out she's actually younger than me.  Suggesting that someone still in their thirties is "wearing well" is probably a bit offensive, I'm guessing!  Anyway, she's mint.  image

    Ha ha, don't be sorry Zaftig image

    Oh and - Jason Isaacs, delish, in fact he gets better with age image

  • DF3, I think we are all on about Silver Foxes.

    How's the knee?

  • Fast-moving environment the Forum David - you snooze you lose image

  • I like 'em young, not a silver fox fan alas. Jason Isaacs isn't bad though.

    Good luck DF3, looking forward to the marathon post mortem.

    (Disclaimer: By post mortem I mean general idle discussion not the real thing of course)

  • Well, I still think paying a sports masseur 40 quid to fix me so I can run a few days later is preferable to waiting several weeks for it to get better and not being able to train...

    But then again, I'm the sort of lightweight who would pull out of the marathon altogether if I hadn't trained, and you wouldn't be the DF3 we know and, er... well, know if you did that. So good luck to you.

  • How did you do DF3? Did you walk?

  • which was easier though? image
