Wednesday Thoughts

Is it just me, or is Sean Connery just getting better with age? I was at my friend Sarah's the other day and did a double take when I saw this picture on a magazine on her coffee table. Sarah confessed to not being able to take her eyes off it herself and later sent me a link to the picture. The man is 78! 78! Well. 78 never looked so good.

There is quite an age difference between us, but with my birthday coming up, I am closing that gap. Although I suppose he will also have a birthday this year so technically I guess I'm not really be closing the gap. Remember when you were a little kid and you thought that eventually you'd catch up with your older siblings or friends in age? I guess we forgot that they too had birthdays. Of course I never did that, but I saw other kids do it.

I feel bad for my guy friends who read my blog because I posted yet another picture of a good looking man and asked you all to weigh in. I suppose I should post a picture of a woman too, but I have no idea who might be a semi-controversial women to ask about. Any suggestions? Sophia Loren? She came to mind because she's around the same age as Sean Connery. Maybe Madonna? Dang, Madonna would be so mad at me if she knew I put her in the same category as two people twenty years (plus) older than her, but I don't know. She came to mind. That's all I'm saying.

As long as we're talking about age here, I should add that I un-subscribed myself from those AARP e-mails. Hilarious, whoever signed me up for those!

Alright, I'm cutting myself off. Wednesday thoughts can get out of control if I don't rein it in. Happy Wednesday guys!

I have a small confession to make...I am one of the few existing females that doesn't get the whole Sean Connery thing. I know most women think I'm crazy, but it's the truth. Even when he was "Bond. James Bond" I wasn't impressed. Phew! I feel so much better getting that off my chest. Don't judge me.

Don't worry, you're not alone. I had never thought much of him until I saw this picture. I think it's the age difference. I read that he wore a toupee for the Bond movies! I only really know him from the Indiana Jones movies. And he seemed kind of old in those movies.

You think you know someone's hair!

I do have to say that the bag he's sitting next to has struck my fancy. I wonder how many MR paychecks that would cost me?

Sarah said...

Ahhh, swoonie swoon swoon... :)

Altho, I agree that I wasn't a fan of him in Bond, nor even in Indiana Jones. But, I most certainly found him very dreamy in "Entrapment" with Catherine Zeta-Jones. Check it out! :)

I refuse to believe that was a hair piece in James Bond and demand that you cite a source for that terrible gossip! Don't worry I've got your back Sean.

I found out about the toupee through imdb:

Sorry. I didn't realize you'd take the news so hard, Najah! ;)

Katherine said...

That is a rather dreamy photo!! I really like his hat! I saw a similar hat at Target today...I may need to get it so I can be up there with Sean!

He's Scottish you know! I love all things Scottish right now, except for Haggis. I hope to meet a 40 year younger version of him in Scotland, although he is quite scrumptious right now.
