Love You Later

Blogging Friends.... In case you have noticed, I've began closing comments with "Love you later". See, Robert Downey Jr. won a Kids' Choice Award the other day for "Best Butt Kicker", and he closed his speech with the words "love you later". I liked that!! A lot!! So now, I am writing/saying it. Because I am an oddball, and proud of it!! Love you later.

I seldom ever double-post. But this was just written in my private Word Document journal. It needed to be shared. Right. Now.

You know what? I have, throughout probably my entire life, loved "old guy" Hollywood celebrities. It began with Dick Van Dyke, I believe. When I was a little girl watching "Diagnosis Murder". I also "crushed" on his son, Barry. But only because he played a policeman!! Okay? I am a sucker for men in uniform!! Anyway. Then, in my teenage years, I developed a "thing" for Harrison Ford. Well, he hardly counted, anyway. I was really in love with Han Solo!! However. Being "in love" with Harrison Ford brought on some teasing from family for "liking" someone who is old enough to be my Grandfather. Sorry, Harry!! Next up was Tom Hanks--who, by the way, is the same age as my Mom!!--and whenever anybody were to ask me how old he was I refused to reveal it. Yes, refused. Fast forward to today. I love, love, love Robert Downey Jr.!! Love, love, love. A dude who used to be so "lost, lost in narcotics", that everybody--friends, family, the world at large--predicted an "untimely death" on his behalf. Well. Robert Downey Jr. turned 49 years young today--nearly midway to 100!!--and for the first time, for the first time, I am unashamed at admitting an actor's age. Because I'm so proud. Proud of him!! And because all logic screams through a blow horn that Robert Downey Jr. never should have made it this far. To age 49. Thank God that Robert Downey Jr. is "hard to kill"!! Do you see the things he does to me?!

Happy, happy, happy birthday, Robert Downey Jr.!! Here's to many, many, many more.

Thank-you for the comment, Friend!!
"Happy Birthday to RDJr from us to. He sure has come a long way." I can't but agree!! RDJ has com e a long, long, LONG way!! And how did he spend his 49th birthday? By "partying hard" {You get that little joke, right?!} with a ton of elementary school-age kids and watching "Captain America: The Winter Soldier"!! He is so freakin' cool!! ;op

Thank-you for the comment, Friend!!
Oh. My. Gosh!! It just occurred to me--right this very second--that I misspelled Dick Van Dyke's last name!! It has a "y" in it, not an "i"!! Whoops. I just corrected that cosmic error!! ;-}
"Shame about Dick Van Dyke's English accent.". Huh. I have only really seen Dick Van Dyke in three things. "Mary Poppins". "The Dick Van Dyke Show". And "Diagnosis Murder". When did he perform a poor English accent? ;op

Now this is embarrassing. Either I, with my early morning groggy head, accidentally deleted your comment. Or Blogger ate it. I am unsure of which scenario occurred. Anyway. I did read it!! And thank-you for the comment, Friend!! ;op
