@Mimi,
No. Just full of wander lust and fell in love as an ex-pat. I thought your country lovely. And, I agree the UK is grand. Sorry for any confusion.

HC your hubby is a keeper! That's love isn't it? I think it's amazing. That's how I see love but I asked the question because I once read somewhere a Simon fan saying her hubby was fed up and she didn't care and dismissed him. I think our partner doesn't need to love what we love but respect it at least and be happy we have found things that we appreciate and make us happy.

Good night! I could go back to bed, feel so exhausted.

@mimi he definitely grew into his looks. i think he's height of beauty was year one and two. he still had a quality of a little fox. but how can i criticize.
going to bed. see you tomorrow.

my husband records every mentalist for me and he makes sure he gets it twice on the la feed as well as the new york feed. he has created a simon baker category for me so anything that comes on with simon bakers gets recorded. he is a very secure man and pushes me to enjoy anything that makes me happy. on my second time watching an episode, he will watch with me and help me understand what's going on because i'm so sometimes so transfixed by patrick, i forget to listen. he saw a clip of simon in the guardian and said "is that before he knew he could take that hair to the bank?" my husband was also the one who suggested that patrick might be living off his wife's insurance money. that would be funny. he has a very dry sense of humor and could trade zingers with jane. he's an original all right.

ahah yes he has put on weight, it's even more obvious when you rewatch the Guardian, I don't know if it's because Nick is much different from Jane but it's like he's another person in that show, his face looks different and he's much slimmer. but I don't mind at all, actually I think he looks better now. I think the epi he looked best in was 4*24, i guess I loved his "laid back" look, nescent beard, shuffled hair, shirt coming out.. damn I would rip his clothes off!!
Seriously I wouldn't have looked twice at him when he was in his twenties, he's like wine, he's deffo improved with age.

HC I love how you describe Simon. Can I ask? what does your hubby say? I guess he laughs about it? I mean he doesn't mind you watching the Mentalist etc?

@mimi i do love this profile. that shot in the pilot when he comes into the house ad stands there in profile which his name is supered over his image. the scene where he's riding the carnival waiting for the young son of a murdered woman. when he searched the twin girls' room for bugs and found them. that profile really is the face to launch a thousand ships.
and i think his degree of muscularity is perfect. he has a swimmer's body so the muscles are stretched and molded. always think guys who get too cut look vain and a little effeminate. i do think he's gained five or ten pounds since year one and might look good if he lost it -- but i'll take him anyway.

@mimi i love a certain kind of blond man. i see a lot of old films and tv and in every era, there's one george peppard in breakfast at tiffany. oscar werner in jules and jim. the young david mccallum. the young rutger hauer. the young keir dullea. the young eric stoltz. eric stoltz playing opposite helen mirren in the passion of ayn rand is a work of art. a young michael caine in zulu. (hard to believe but he had that quality then)
there's a certain intellect to their beauty. and the blond hair and eyebrows gives the face and head a sculptural quality. simon, of course, has it. he's elegant and sophisticated but combines it with an earthy animal quality i've never seen before in the same man.

YES! I remembered yesterday that Simon was going to be honored today! Ican't wait to see this! he so deserves that star!

BTW regarding his kids, his daughter takes after him to much. I have noticed that girls tend to look after their dads while boys look after their mums, my niece looks like my brother so much, for ex and I can see this is true for many people. I find it hard to see a resemblance with his sons, they look like Rebecca so much, the little one has curly hair though. He seems to be a wonderful dad, I didn't have one and when I see how caring he is with his kids, it makes my heart melt.

HC thank you, I'm not worried about being single, I have self esteem issues and working on them. I'm past 30 now so sometimes I think damn hurry up but then I know it's useless to worry about it, the main thing is that I feel good, no matter what I do or whom I'm with. Fortunately there's tv to compensate in the meantime!lol
