Carole Lombard

In terms of beauty or attraction I'll admit I'm a pushover for Barbara Stanwyck and Ida Lupino and Ingrid Bergman but Lombard's statuesque beauty, while I appreciate it, leaves me cold (nothing wrong with her, it's prolly me). I do like her dreamy, half-stoned style of delivery in Godfrey and To Be or Not To Be, the way the words tumble, half-intended almost, lightly out of the mouth, and kind of trail away like wisps of fog...

You let your children watch Rugrats? You never struck me as a Nicktoons kind of guy...

They don't like Rugrats, I suspect they just let it play in the background.

We're more Spongebob Squarepants type people. Studio Ghibli, but there's only so many of their films...

Ah.. You do strike me as a Spongebob Squarepants fan.. I don't know how, but in some odd way you do... Your unique like that.. :)

I prefer Spongebob to Finding Nemo. Less sentimental, more imaginative. Least I think so.
