Advent Calendar: Day 12

Firstly, I have to say happy birthday, Rachel! (She knows who she is). I'm not sure if she's a fan of the next man I'm about to post, but maybe I'll convert her!

I think it's time for another blond. A blond Bond, too. He's actually my favourite!

I'm not really a James Bond fan, which is ridiculous in some ways because I love a good action movie, and don't mind if it's a little bit far fetched. Lethal Weapon and the Die Hard films are right up my street! But watching Pierce Brosnon surf on some sort of door on a tidal wave was just plain stupid. (I can't even recall the name of it, but we watched the film at the cinema one night when we were in New Zealand, January 2003). I get they're trained killers and all that - he's good at a lot of things. But surfing is a skill, and to stand up and ride a wave takes a lot of practise, and is not a necessary skillset for a Secret Agent. Or is it? Maybe I would have believed it more if he'd 'body boarded' in. I've just found Bond films way too corny. Yes, more corny than Lethal Weapon or Die Hard!

When I watched Casino Royale, I was very impressed with the new Bond. I empathised with him, found him much more brooding, emotional and human.

Maybe there were new directors/producers, and realised James Bond could not longer be a cardboard cut out, and he needed some depth. Daniel Craig gave us new depth to Bond.

And of course there has to be a shirtless picture! Or my name's not Teresa Morgan!


  1. I'm not big on blondes normally but this is the second one you've posted that I whole-heartedly approve of :-)

  2. There's something so right about a man in a tux!

    I've just realised I might have missed a couple of days - noooooo!

  3. Annalisa, I didn't think you'd missed any. It is hard when I'm posting everyday. I don't expect you to visit everyday lol! But I have been trying to keep posts short and sweet as I am posting daily.

    (I'll be honest, when I sometimes see a long blog post I stop reading, as I fear I don't really have time for them. Short and sweet blog posts are my favourite - with eye candy :D)

    Sarah, I'm glad you approve! Have to try you out on some more :D

  4. How did I miss these before? I loved Daniel Craig in Casino Royale!

    Off to check out the other posts.

  5. I don't know, how are you missing my blog, Doris?

    It's difficult. Sometimes there are so many blogs to read, and you just can't read them all. But keep an eye on my FB wall daily :D


I love reading your comments and I will try to reply when I can. Thank you for reading my blog and taking the time to comment.
