This is the impression i get from his new bread baking show on the bbc,DP is watching it and i can't help but give a commentary on how much he seems to love himself, am i right or am i just being mean to the man?!

It's good that we don't all go for the same type! Paul Hollywood - his pale blue eyes are those of a mass murderer and his voice and accent grates on me. This is really nit-picking but I hate that he is greying in his beard and hair but has dark eyebrows! He is creepy looking.

I find Colin Firth attractive but there are bound to be those who consider him unattractive!

I was a neighbour of his, he is not a good neighbour to me, hurling abuse at a lady and premie twins with your mates when she is trying to get to SCBU for an appointment not good! nor is blocking the drive for a photo shoot which is why they started hurling abuse as I needed to leave.

on a good note he did give my work mates some cake and tea over christmas when he saw them working in the street.
also he has given a lot of his time and money to the local community in various fund raising events so I might have had a bad moment with him, maybe he was pre-menstrual or something that day?
on the whole I might forgive him (one day) and his friends and the other celeb chef who was as vocal as him that day but he is not a horrible person just a bit smug! also his bread..try it if you can afford it, my mate won some it is really nice.

Every time I see Paul I thin kof the wonderful term I first learnt on MN:

Wank Badger.

Just look at his hair, for a start!

I think we might be being more critical. I found his accent grated rather tonight.

Yes I was saddened by his shortness. And his shirt was just a little too unbuttoned. I was waiting for a glimpse of gold chain.

Am I being more critical in light of the Vicar revelations? I don't know.

I still liked him with Mary on the Easter baking show, though. Maybe I like him more with Mary as he has someone to rein him in every once in a while. smile

He looked very short standing next to the German pretzel chappy. What with Vicar's shocking revelations, I have Gorn Orf him.

Hey ho, back to Christopher Ecclestone Lust.

INeed I love me some Paul but your DH's comment made me laugh. grin I'm watching it now; I had to record it as no way was I going to be able to get the dragon film off the TV before it was over...

Had to revive this one. Hollywood just stretched some dough and said it looked like his Y fronts would in twenty years.

DH: 'Not far off now pal. Looks like he's made of bread.'

Not feeling the love, I fear.

YANBU but I like his recipes.

I don't like his doughy, carby face.

MrsLouisTheroux Wed 27-Mar-13 07:34:44

Hmm. I bet he's ruthless.

I have learnt a) not to put yeast and salt next to each other in bowl for fear of killing the yeast and b) to get my hands like a mixer and get stuck in c) to stretch and fold, stretch and fold to get that gluton going.

Come to think of it, he tells me this each time he is on TV.

Maybe he's a one trick pony.

I think I'll stick with Mr. Theroux after all grin!

<little face of Po>

I am unimpressed.

<bit more Po>

SarahStratton Wed 27-Mar-13 00:27:38

Ooh squeak, the red dot.


Is it really dreadful of me to secretly hope he's been a leetle naughty? <hangs head in shame>

ThatVikRinA22 Wed 27-Mar-13 00:18:19

i wish it was more exciting.....alas. still. shocked me.

SaggyOldClothCatPuss Wed 27-Mar-13 00:15:57

grin I beat you to it! blush

SarahStratton Wed 27-Mar-13 00:15:16

Ahem <coffs to clear throat>

Someone may possibly have a PM blush

CatPussInACrownOfThorns Wed 27-Mar-13 00:05:13

Vicar, you didnt leave a space between the dots and your strikeout.

GreenEggsAndNichts Wed 27-Mar-13 00:05:05

I totally understand. I just had to say I'm going to bed because I didn't want someone convincing you to share, then waking up tomorrow to find that it's been deleted.

I will certainly not be pestering you via PM for gossip as soon as I'm awake again


ThatVikRinA22 Wed 27-Mar-13 00:04:50

GreenEggsAndNichts Wed 27-Mar-13 00:00:42

Vicar he reminds me of an ex of mine. He was also a cunt. I've long suspected they might have similar personalities.

I am, of course, dying to know details.

I have to sleep, though. sad

HazeltheMcWitch Tue 26-Mar-13 23:58:51
