Shaken and stirred
Sean Connery was at my place of employment today. Much to my dismay, I did not see him. However, the security guard in the lobby below my office got to meet him when he came in. And, I swear to god, he introduced himself to her as "Bond. James Bond."
When I left work this afternoon, said security guard was still swooning and grinning from ear to ear. I think she'll be living off that story for quite some time to come.
Had I seen him, I would have been torn between being all swoony myself over Dr. Jones/James Bond/Ramirez the Immortal and silently giggling, thinking about SNL "Celebrity Jeopardy!"
I probably would have swooned in person and then giggled later. Why choose?
By the way, Nicholas Cage, Helen Mirren and others are in town right now filming the sequel to "National Treasure." I guess Dame Helen is slumming it after her Oscar win. To be honest, I enjoyed "National Treasure" - it was a guilty pleasure for me the summer it came out. So, hopefully, while certainly not Oscar-worthy, the sequel will be a hoot, too.
Hmm... sequel news makes me wonder... will Connery return to the Indiana Jones saga at all for the last film? Geriatric Jones? Old and Older? Don't care. Connery and Ford would be fabulous eye candy at any age.
