Guilty pleasures

This morning at work, R emailed me this. Oh dear...

On one hand, this is kind of lame and publicity grabbing, and Man vs Wild kind of makes me want to throw up whenever I watch it, while I'm simultaneously vaguely intrigued. On the other hand we have this:

Rawr. In case you're new around here, I *may* have a small obsession with Jake Gyllenhaal. To the point where I occasionally refer to him as my future husband. And Bear Grylls isn't exactly bad looking. Clearly batshit crazy (have you SEEN the names of his children?!), but that's completely not the point. HOLY CRAP.  YOU CAN DO A JIGSAW PUZZLE OF THAT PICTURE. HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA.

Anythat'sthefunniestthingI'veeverseen, after spending part of the work day trying to find out when that episode is going to air in Australia (Dear SBS, your website is unhelpful on matters of such ridiculously high importance...), I instead came home and indulged in one of my guilty pleasures: watching Prince of Persia.

I've had a number of people tell me recently that it's one of the biggest pieces of crap they've ever seen. Clearly, these people are overlooking the main point with Prince of Persia: the plot is tenuous and should be ignored at all costs. (Hands up who just got so distracted by that jigsaw puzzle that they don't really care about anything else I have to say? *raises hand*)

The sole point of Prince of Persia? Is this:

What more do you need, really? Now, if you'll excuse me, I have to go and bookmark that jigsaw puzzle so that I can do it every day...

Please tell me I'm not the only one who likes this movie solely because of the eye candy?

  2. I went to see Prince of Persia because I have an obsession with Gemma Arterton after watching the St Trinian's films. I just think she's beautiful.

  8. Really, Sara? You want Bear Grylls in that picture??? The man who drinks his own wee and named his child Marmaduke?! Although if it means I get the Gyllenhaal all to myself, then it's a deal ;)

  9. Stop wilfully misinterpreting my comments you! You know very well what I meant...

    Actually though I think Bear Grylls is kind of awesome. When I was small I was going to have two fish called Marmaduke and Jeffrey, perhaps its fate?! ;)
