Last night, Jacek interrupted my Glee screening (party of one) to give me the low-down on my next assignment. Did you watch? Matthew Morrison singing Montell Jordan, Bel Biv Devoe, and Color Me Badd all in one episode? Enough said. Emily and I were both dancing in our living rooms. In our home clothes, i.e. sweat pants, obvs. She did the Running Man, I Robo-copped it. And I know you just broke out into the Roger Rabbit right now.

I don’t think Jacek knows that I get all flustered and nervous around straight guys. Especially straight guys that are attractive, have great phone voices, and are extremely nice to me. I cannot deal. So a conversation with Jacek will consist of him being totally sweet and encouraging and giving me scoop, while I barely manage to mumble out a “yeah” or a “cool” or a “mmm-hmm.” Really, that’s the best I can do in these situations. Straight men just turn me into a mute. Actually, gay men do as well. Let’s just say that any man who is nice to me? I’m a total quivering insecure mess.

So I can’t even begin to imagine what it would be like to meet Colin Farrell . Perhaps I would just implode. Look at these photos from his second press conference at TIFF for the world premiere of his movie Ondine.

Nobody does scruff better than Colin Farrell. Put him in a leather jacket and I’m done, it’s over, I’m finished, I can’t. Coupled with that twinkle in his eye, and I’m completely charmed. All that, just from a set of photos. Imagine the scruff in person. I wouldn’t know what to do with myself.

The film has been getting good reviews across the board - as it should since one of the main characters is a mermaid! I heart mermaids! Madison, Ariel, Cher! All of ‘em! Loves!

You know who else loves mermaids? U2. Yep, that’s right. Bono and The Edge were at the screening of Ondine, supporting their fellow Irishman and getting their mermaid freak on.

Playing the magical creature is Alicja Bachleda-Curus, who also happens to be Colin’s girlfriend. The two met on the set of Ondine and it was announced that she is pregnant! Congrats Colin and Alicia! Talk about getting some tail!
