Yesterday Elizabeth enlightened me on the hottest men from 1910-1950. Since I have very little knowledge of the hottest men of yesteryear, she got very little pushback. Today…I have some opinions!
[Click HERE to read our earlier conversation and what led to Elizabeth saying…]
Elizabeth: Just to splash some cold water on you
Elizabeth: For the 1960s I have again chosen Cary Grant, because his perfection cannot be contained by one decade.
Elizabeth: I realize this is cheating, and I don’t care.
Tricia: I approve of your cheating.

I have used snippets of my Messenger conversations with Elizabeth twice now on my blog. I am convinced that we are hilarious, pathetic, and witty, which are three of the things most necessary to creating a blog series. Presented occasionally: “Let’s Talk About…” with Elizabeth!
Elizabeth: A reporter in DC is interviewing Tom Hiddleston on TV right now and it is not me. Life is unfair.
Tricia: Whoa, there’s so much going on here! First, obviously, how dare he dance with and/or touch anyone but you or me!? But also, is he going to be the next James Bond??? I don’t know how I feel about that!
Elizabeth: Yeah, there are rumors, apparently, but I’m not necessarily down with that. Mostly because I want him to do comedy, but also because I’m not a huge James Bond fan.
Tricia: The role just seems like everything he is not. Whether he’s playing villains or heroes, he’s always very emotional, and that’s why I love him. James Bond is always emotionless.
Elizabeth: And a misogynist. You can’t redeem Bond.
Tricia: Unless he REMAKES James Bond.
Elizabeth: Remember all the furor over “blond Bond” Daniel Craig?
I’m so glad we’ve moved into an era of acceptance where Bond can be a blond chiseled and sexy white guy instead of a brunette chiseled and sexy white guy.
Tricia: I see your sarcasm, but I really liked Daniel Craig’s Bond. HOWEVER, I feel it is important to say that although I want Tom Hiddleston to be in everything, I actually think Idris Elba is the best Bond choice. We need some racial diversity while maintaining the Bulky Man Box aesthetic.
Elizabeth: Idris Elba! Continue reading
I was going to post this in my Sunday Summary blog post, because that’s where it belongs. BUT there is nothing that is so exactly designed to suit my tastes as this video of Stephen Colbert gently coercing Tom Hiddleston to sing as a guest on his talk show, and I couldn’t wait to share it.
My dear friend Elizabeth, who knows me so well, messaged me about this video’s existence only hours after it was uploaded to YouTube. She couldn’t watch it immediately because she was at “work,” but I convinced her to stop being productive and fangirl with me.
This video is a gift to humanity, and although life can be bleak and confusing and traumatizing, there is also THIS: Tom Hiddleston and Stephen Colbert singing old country gospel songs while grinning into each other’s faces.
Colbert? Hiddleston? Are you listening?? PLEASE CATER TO MY WHIMS AND MAKE THIS HAPPEN.
