The chances of Kate ever reading this are slim, I know. But I wanted to post this anyways. Posted Image

--------------------------------------------------------

Dear Kate,

I admit that I've had a crush on you since the days I first saw Titanic. And, after having purchased the Titanic DVD, I believe I still have a crush on you. Here's a little pseudo-poem I attempted to write (Oh, man, I can't believe I'm doing this):

Kate;
Gorgeous amber red hair;
Lips as red as a rose;
Voluptuously sincere;
Eyes as blue as the ocean waves;
Thou wilst forever be in my heart
Before I die; before I live;
Before I wither away with time;
Canst thy being of beauty see
The love that awaits for thee?

What do you say? We can have lunch. Catch a movie on my modest Home Theater setup. Then a walk on the beach in the evening. If you'd like to, please let me know. Posted Image


Sincerely,

Oh. Well, in that case, Brian has a chance. Posted Image

As long as he stays away from Nicole Kidman, Brian can do whatever he wants. But Nicole is mine. (Unless, of course, Meg Ryan starts returning my calls...) Posted Image

On a semi-serious note, I remember the Monday after JFK, Jr.'s secret weekend wedding: I was working for a law firm and half the secretaries were in the break-room huddled around the newspaper. Several of them bemoaned the fact that he was now "off the market." I thought, "Yeah. Like any of you had a shot."

Regards,

Joe

Sounds Kinky! If I was in Brian's shoes I'd much rather her bring a young voluptuous sister (if she has one) or friend instead... but unto each his own so they say.

I'm seeing her tonight (off for a few pints and a curry!), so I'll pass on your comments.
No longer here.

I'm sending you $4 so that you can join the Jazzercise-Circuit Training at the Huntington Beach City Gym and Pool.

There, you're going to meet some real nice Kate Winslot kinda look-a-likes!

Keep in mind that your obsession with Kate stems from Titanic. In reality, you don't have a thing for Kate Winslet, you have a thing for Rose. The problem is, Rose doesn't exist. You can find the person who looks just like her (Kate), but Kate isn't Rose. Even if you could have Kate, I doubt you'd be happy.

I went through the same thing with Rebecca De Mornay after watching Risky Business. Lana was enchanting. So was Rose in Titanic. If you were a 12 year old girl back when Titanic was in theaters, Jack did the same thing for you (and as a result, you drove the movie to the top of the charts Posted Image ). Anyway, it's not the girl you want, it's the situation. The romance. They could have cast any beautiful woman as Rose and you'd have the same crush on her. You, Brian, are a hopeless romantic. Scary, huh? But look on the bright side: You'll make some woman happy one of these days. The vast majority of them are also hopeless romantics. When I married my wife, she came with boxes upon boxes of romance novels. Thousands of them. (She gave most of them away a couple of years ago; should have sold 'em on EBay. Could have made a small fortune.)

Well, I agree with Ryan here.

Brian, watch Kate Winslet in Holly Smoke and you tell me if I'm right to agree with Ryan here. She isn't appealing at all in that movie. I can tell you plenty of stars that I would be inlove with the characters they played but I wouldn't go near them in real life because of their personality or whatever else. Serious!

If Brian can write an open letter to Kate Winslet, maybe I should write an open letter to Rini Bell! Posted Image
