In fact I personally don't even find Carrie Anne Moss very attractive, much less gorgeous, the word you used, Maggie (although in fairness I can't remember seeing her in much except the Matrix flicks, with that bizarre look, and Memento, where she's hardly displaying her beautiful side).

By contrast if pressed I would have to agree with James (and perhaps your husband?) that Laura is a long way from being an eyesore.

Thanks guys. Must be a different woman ...the one I am thinking of definitely looks like Carrie Ann Moss, and she seemed to be 'in charge' and also Italian! Steve- you don't think she is gorgeous (CAM)?

Or maybe I am just way off in my 'she resembles' thinking... . I have been known to be way off base before, it's a bad habit I have- everyone looks like someone else to me!

For example- Steve reminds me of Tom Selleck and James reminds me of Brad Pitt.

I think this might be Anna Bassi.....very nice and beautiful woman..but she seems to manage the lodging reservations area.

I a bit spoiled, though, you know, and for the past almost 10 years have been rather hooked on this look:



(She hates that finger thing, there, that the photographer asked for, and it does look very unnatural, I admit, but then that's now what I look at in that photo. )

Or, you know, if push comes to shove and Delmy runs off with another man, someday, this look is also quite good:



But as she's not really available and anyway, as I say, I've been hooked on the first one for some time now... You know what they say: if it ain't broke, don't fix it!

Yes, Steve, I would definitely say that both you and James are very lucky men! Unfortunately, I think I'm the "ugly" one in my relationship!!

Oh me too...my hubby is a hottie compared to me ...of course he better not say that!
Steve Delmy is beautiful.

Jacko, she very well might be....whoever she was, she was in the restaurant those days, but not serving, she was handling the money end of things.

Geez, Synestre, get with it -- openings and closings are old news on this thread, already! Quit changing the topic!

(Nice to run into you in Sam's the other day, by the way.)

Seriously though, that location was WAY to prime to stay vacant for too long. I'm surprised its been vacant as long as it has!
The mostly likely reason that the spot had stayed vacant so long was the rent the owner charges. I have heard that the rent for the old T.G.I.Fridays space was in the neighborhood of $30,000 USD per month. I am curious as to whether or not Burger King will make it there. That rent would translate to having to sell a whole lot of burgers.

I wish Zennon all the luck in the world. He will need it.

Yes, we found Zennon sitting, drinking a beer in front of his place ... um ... I mean ... working really hard today. Says the name will be Georgian Lion. Did I hear that right? You Brits have such funny names for pubs! Actually, he told me the name last night after I had a few, so many I didn't hear right.

Through the haze, George and the Dragon would be a traditional name as a possible answer.

Funny names! We just can't compete with 'Ed's bar' even after 100's of years of practice.

Actually there's lots of historical significance to old pub names that makes fascinating reading... and drinking.

Thanks! And nice touchup on that picture! Funny, I noticed the finger right away. Just the kind of cheesy thing that a wedding photographer makes you do.
