In Love with a Man

I spent most of my weekend in the company of one of my favorite men. I love this man. With no reservations and with all of my heart.

Why do i love him so? I know he is flawed but i cant help myself. He is an older man - he is in his early 40's i think. He is a bit of a mad hatter really. He loves adventure and is constantly doing things like bungee jumping off bridges and flying helicopters. He can do that kind of stuff though since he is in excellent shape. He can run and run. He handles guns a lot which scare me but he can take care of himself.What a man

His smile and swagger have me swooning. His sense of humor. He is corny as hell but with him, its okay. I love it and laugh so often when i am in his company. He loves gadgets like most men. But he just takes his to another level. He makes enough money and his company supplies him with the oddest things and i delight in his use of them. If i try to use any of his toys, i am sure i would end up looking like a damn fool but he makes it look so easy. His cars. This man is a car expert but he gets into wrecks so much. Once again, his company supplies the cars so he doesnt have much to worry about.

His love life. He was married once but sadly she died many years ago. Since then, he seems unable and unwilling to settle down. I am one of his many friends. His lovers come in all colors, shapes and sizes. He is what i like to call an equal opportunity lover. I hear he is a stud in bed. He does have a love them and leave them reputation so he does all he can to avoid running into any of his loves. I should know better, but i would love to have the pleasure of being one of his girls. Okay just one kiss and having him escort me to a public function would be my fantasy. People would be green with envy. This man is one very handsome son of a gun.

I have known him since i was a little girl but as i have gotten older, i appreciate him better. Appreciate his jokes and sexual innuendos. He goes through a change every couple of years and sometimes i like him better than at other times but i wouldnt trade him for the world. When i am feeling down, i lose myself in his presence and forget all my worries. When people criticize him, i get incensed and the critics go down several notches in my book. To not love this man means there is no room for you in my world.

He loves the finer things in life and when he drinks, he has 2 specialties:

Who is this man? His name is Bond! James Bond!

I love James Bond. I am not very happy with Daniel Craig as the newest choice. I mean he is blond (so they said they would darken his hair) and he already lost some teeth during the shooting of Casino Royale. James Bond is superman. He does not lose teeth. He defuses nuclear weapons and jumps off bridges and is not bothered by such minor things as injuries.

My favorite Bond of all time is Sean Connery followed very closely by Timothy Dalton. Lots of people dont like Timothy Dalton's Bond years but this is my blog and i love him. Shoot me. I watched 6 Bond movies this weekend. My dad has the entire collection and i just have 7 movies or so. I kept meaning to get them all. There was a time when the entire box set on DVD was a hundred pounds. At the time, that was a lot of money for me. So for all those that love me and want me to be happy *big hint here*, i would like the complete James Bond collection.

Who is your favorite James Bond?

lol...
why do you need to buy them when your dad has them?, haba sebi what is your fathers is yours?..
Tell him it is unbecoming of a gentleman his age to watch those movies, tell him that as his daughter and because you love him, you are helping him by taking the bond collection off his hands...
say this with a flourish, very quickly, kiss him onthe cheek..
be in and out of his presence in 2 minutes flat.

Do it before he knows what he's doing, and if he says anything, lift up the top of the ring on your pinkie finger (the one 'M' or is it 'Q' in those movies) would havemade for you and release the noxious gas, which will knock him out for 2 minutes....

there you go... brand new collection whilst practising a bond move...
now please pay me for the idea.
Thank you.

LOL. You have a vivid imagination.

Hmm. My dad's love for James Bond competes with mine. You should the 2 of us at it. Rapt attention with these 2 intellectuals oohing and aahing over stunts we have seen countless times before.

My dad has become very suspicious of me and his DVDs (LOL) and has resorted to hiding them from me.

Hey, you finally updated your blog. nice posts. My fave Bond is Sean Connery (no-one can match him), followed by Pierce Brosnan. Roger Moore was ok in my book, although most people don't like him. He added a touch of comedy to Bond - hey, it was the 80s and everything had to be slightly wacky and silly. Timothy Dalton? I slept through most of that movie. But he was very hot as Mr. Rochester in 'Jane Eyre'. Girl, I don't know about that Daniel Craig either. He's not even cute.

Uzo said...

@Daddy's Girl: Timothy Dalton as Mr Rochester? I agree 100%. Yumminess galore. I wanted to be Jane Eyre....And the actress Jane something was so short and little and he would just grab her and say "Jane Oh Jane". I wanted to be Jane.

I love that man. Love him. Tall, dark haired and with dimples. I think i am a man wrapper oh.

I loved this post when it was on ur yahoo blog, but couldnt comment then, I love James Bond too, my favorite being Sean Connery, great post!

I'm a little crazy about James Bond too. A while ago I downloaded the 20-movie set from Connery to Brosnan.

My best James Bond would be George Lazenby -- there's something in his face I liked. Did you know he was a martial artist who worked with Bruce Lee? He was able to do all his stunts in OHMSS without any stunt doubles.

Sean Connery has to be next -- the rugged look, the way he slaps all his women's butts [or hands]. Now that's a trademark.

Up next would be Roger Moore and Pierce Brosnan [can't say which is better although Moore was much too old]. Pardon me, but I don't really like Dalton -- he hardly looks like a Bond...

Uzo said...

@Azuka: Lazenby? I was sooo not impressed with that whole performance. I didnt get it.

I agree with you on the age thing with Roger Moore. After the Connery era, Moore for me was such a let down. Timothy Dalton is sucha hottie and he made Bond a little darker for me.....

azuka said...

Lazenby was forced by the director to portray a very serious Bond and it showed -- whole scenes were retaken anytime he dared to show much emotion, so he was portrayed to be quite cold.

Apparently, the fact that he didn't get along with Diana Rigg (who played Tracy, his wife) due to a personality clash contributed to how bad the film was.
