hugh laurie love

over the last 3 days i have watched every single episode of house. always appreciative of the talents and physical perfection of hugh laurie, i find i am now verging on obsession.

this is how i felt at 15 when patrick rafter was my tennis god. slightly loopy. and full of deep sighs and an almost physical longing.

it does not help that house is a horribly addictive character, with issues that he is unable to resolve. i don't need to see him in every boy i have ever dated- too much fun, horribly unreliable, and addicted to something.

following on the hugh laurie bender i've been on i downloaded and attempted to watch the girl from rio. disaster. there are some things even i cannot do for love. like sit through that movie.

they should make an app that has people's voices in them, an app where you can convert a pdf file into a sound one- and have hugh laurie or alan rickman read your essays out to you. i know i would get a lot more work on food security done if it was hugh laurie's voice telling me about pds take-off. wouldn't that be wonderful in your i pod.


  1. I have yet to watch House. But he was absolutely hilarious in the cameo in Sense and Sensibility. Especially when you think of him being married to Professor Umbridge. Bwahahaha

    I'd buy that app, though. Add Denzel Washington and George Clooney to that list as well.

  2. it is now day six and i am ready for this madness to stop. thankfully in the uk they have 6-8 episodes per season. and no more. or filling my head with everything laurie would take so much longer.

    james earl jones. if i had to pick a third.

  3. Also, I have realised that Ang Lee's version of Sense and Sensibility had the most scrumplicious men ever. Forget Hugh Grant (back when he was still cute), it had Rickman and Laurie. And Willoughby was smarmy, but not too bad. All they needed to add was a young Colin Firth and Rupert Everett. *drools*
