Colin Firth and Wine: A Winning Combination

We spent the weekend with Captain Carl's parents, celebrating Christmas early with them. There was a lot of wine, a lot of food and a lot of presents. Can't get much better than that...especially the wine part.

As an added bonus, my mother-in-law got the Mamma Mia dvd from Mailman Mike. My father-in-law's look of horror in response to the gift made Mailman Mike VERY happy. Because we live to torture each other in this family.

My mother-in-law is completely in love with this movie and saw it in the theater 4 times. Four! Captain Carl and I can barely manage to see that many movies in a year. So she begged Captain Carl and my father-in-law to watch it with us. After my FIL faked a seizure for about a minute in response, we decided it would be best for them to take the Kiddo and go shopping at Best Buy while the ladies watched the movie alone. Probably for the best....I would have really hated to stab Captain Carl in the eye with my wine charm after he mocked the movie for the 70 bazillionth time.

So off the boys went, out came the wine (again) and on went the movie. It was super cute, a very good chick flick. Plus one of my TOP 5 men was in it...Colin Firth. Sooo lickable in a nerdy Mr. Darcy British way.



See??


I did hate that they turned him gay in the movie though...he is soooo hetero.

Would a gay man let his wife dress like this? I don't think so.



The gays do like him though, so I'm told. One of my friends who happens to be a gay man went to the Mamma Mia premiere in New York. He got close enough to take Colin's picture and told me he is even more gorgeous in person. His boyfriend got to shake his hand. Bitch.


If it had been me, I would have immediately licked my own hand because that's about as close you can get to licking Colin Firth in real life. What?? Is that weird?

Here are the pics he took.



Well hello, Mr. Darcy.




I bet he totally grew that beard in one day. Dude standing behind him is totally jealous.

P.S. My parents and sister just flew in for Christmas last night...sooooo happy!!

I would NOT kick Mr. Darcy out of my bed for eating crackers. If Mr. Darcy was gay, I would become a man. Who is that hot bitch in the photo?
