Mr. Clooney-better than Bustello!

Ahhh...now I can actually work; I've gazed upon Mr. Clooney for a morning pick me up!


(thanks to CEP for the linkage)

Admit it, you wrote that.

Mr. Clooney while sipping Starbucks? Lovely. Mr. Clooney while sipping Starbucks after having put three children on the school bus? Priceless.

I had a strange Clooney connection. I mentioned his name in a post that ran on HuffPo and now the post is on several celebrity pick up feeds. Oh yeah, George and I hang out together - at least in cyberspace.

Happy New Year!

As always, Miss Snark's taste is impeccable. May I swoon now?

What an accurate and eloquent writer! Congratulations are in order, Miss Snark, but at what cost? In composing that piece you've clearly outted yourself as being one Karen Heller!

"Clooney plays the least productive reporter ever depicted on screen, not once touching a typewriter."

HA!

I found a new image search tool the other day. Here's what it finds for Mr. Clooney. Whoa.

Can't imagine Miss Snark in Kansas City...yes I can.

George Clooney in uniform - there's just nothing more to be said.

Karen Heller, i.e. Miss Snark?

I don't think so, but she's definitely channeling Miss Snark's spirit.

Fun read.

Eh. He's darned pretty but there's nothing attractive to me about a 45-year-old guy who's unable or unwilling to make a lasting commitment to another person.

A 45-year-old guy who's pretty and has been married to the same woman (or man) for a decade or two and is a good father to his kids - THAT'S swoon-worthy.

I'm with you, Kate, regarding Mr. Clooney in a uniform. I'm speechless.
My, my, my...is it getting warm in here?

Geez. Miss Snark, you just might make a Clooney worshipper convert out of me. And usually I'm rather stuck in past decades (Errol Flynn) or drooling over Harrison Ford.

George has made a commitment, Anonymous, to staying single. I think the guy's pretty damn smart--not only does he have a pretty good female supply line, he actually understands the odds in celebrity marriages.

I can't think of one good reason for him to marry until he's middle-aged, which today is somewhere around 55.

And usually I'm rather stuck in past decades (Errol Flynn) or drooling over Harrison Ford.

I'm sure Ford is a very nice man and, indeed, I used to drool over him.

But then he ditched Melissa Mathison, his literate, writerly, intelligent wife for Calista Flockhart.

What? He lost me on that one.

I'm sure Flockhart is a very nice woman, but after Harrison Ford made that choice, he no longer makes my heart go pitter-patter. He seems shallow, which is a total turn-off.

I admit I don't understand much. I'm just a man. But what is sexy about a uniform? D-Day in times square I can get. But now?

I really don't understand why people get upset with George Clooney's statement that he doesn't plan to marry again. I mean, unless he promised to marry YOU, and didn't, what IS the problem? Did he ever promise anyone he'd get married? (An amazing number of people also get upset because Clooney gives motorcycles to his friends. Again, why? If nothing else, the people who are employed by the motorcycle company stay employed.)

Other considerations aside, I admire Clooney for making movies in Glorious Black And White. (Anyone else see the FAIL-SAFE he did?)

My dear Miss Snark if you really want to get your hands on the handsome Mr. Clooney you simply must hang around at the pool at the Red Rocks Casino and Hotel in Las Vegas when he's in town. Mr. Clooney likes to stay there and it was from this vantage point that he was checking out my younger sister's derriere last May.

Just pointing you in the direction of the hunting grounds. I'm reliably informed that a string bikini is the best hunting attire and a well-developed Gluteous Maximus is the best hunting weapon when stalking the elusive GC.

P.S. Mr. Clooney does not seem to be particularly fond of silicone so this weapon is not needed. ;)

He's swoonworthy in part because he's unattached and refuses to marry. A woman's fantasy is this: being the one to change his mind!

Okay, in real life, Mr. Clooney, Mr. Ford, and Mr. Flynn (especially the last, as he's dead) would not be my ideal mates. So, sorry sal, if I offended you there.
But I'm not talking about reality. Swooning over motion picture stars is not reality. After all, I love Captain Jack Sparrow, but I'm not all that keen on Johnny Depp. This is not logic; it's Hollywood.
Besides, I can't have any of 'em, so I might as well swoon over the best looking.
As for Mr. Clooney's not marrying, well, he's upfront and honest about it, so that seems much better than any kind of relationship lie. I agree with bordermoon.
