Perfect choice - really :-) look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.

Cat Marsters/Kate Johnson said...

Ohh, isn't he delicious? Wonder if we could get him to present the award next year? Sort of an official mascot?

He might have to wear body armour, though. I'm not sure he'd be safe from us.

Jan Jones said...

I'm not sure we'd be safe from us if he was there!

Yup, see you Tuesday, Liz!

I'm sad to see Colin Firth hasn't made the list, but I do love RA :o)

Jan Jones said...

He was on my list, Karen, just after Viggo and Orlando. Guess we just keep 'em for ourselves, eh?

Nicola Slade said...

All fine and dandy, but my current favourite is Hugh Bonneville - none of these skinny boys for me!
Have fun at the RNA lunch, Jan.

*Sigh* I'm not at all surprised. My heart was lost to Richard Armitage the moment he rode into Sherwood Forest, dressed in black leather!

Jan Jones said...

Yes, you wonder what Marion was thinking of really, don't you?

Elaine said...

Not much to argue with here. He really is quite quite wonderful. Oh be still my beating heart...
