No. This man is a fraud.

MrsScavo Sun 02-Sep-07 23:41:48

Has anyone ever actually met anyone called Horatio?

purpleflower Sun 02-Sep-07 23:43:36

Met a baby Horatio a couple of months ago.

MrsJohnCusack Sun 02-Sep-07 23:58:45

ooooh oculd start a thread entitled 'People who call themselves 4real - are they Horatio'

seeing as how that mad Kiwi couple tried to call their baby 4real

no, they just think they are called Horatio but I just know that they are just making excuses, they are really called Neville.

Never met one myself, but there was a little boy in my ballet class called Horace. He never became a great leader though. Even though he was the only boy in the class.

Norky ... leave the great HN alone or I'll undo yer bra straps when you're not looking angry

I once knew an Horatio. He played horn.

horatio from CSI is a travesty on the memory of Nelson AND HOrnblower

Depends if they are as devoted to the Profanisaurus as I am.

Or of course they could be a classicist... Oh Tiber Father Tiber, to whom the Romans pray/ A Roman's life, a Roman's arms, take thou in charge this day
And thus he spake and speaking, sheathed
His good sword by his side
And with his harness on his back
Plunged headlong in the tide

<but not for long, eh, LL?>

I agree with MrsJC (for the second time in half an hour) that the Horatio in CSI is a total twunt.

Oh, er, um, I meant him.

<makes narrow escape>

MrsJohnCusack Mon 03-Sep-07 00:12:23

obviously not memory in Hornblower's case, him being made up and everything

<needs sleep>

Desiderata Mon 03-Sep-07 00:12:35

I'll have a glass of whatever Mademez's having ....

Desiderata Mon 03-Sep-07 00:14:36

God, but that man was gorgeous as Hornblower [swoon emoticon]

I saw him in something recently and he didn't do it for me at all, but oh, oh, oh, those breeches.

<You'll note I said 'that man,' because he has a totally illegible Welsh name>

Hey I once decided just before a trip to Rome t the age of 17) that I would learn the whole poem. Before looking in the book and finding out that there's something like 2000 lines of it.

Mind you, if you'e not all good, I will recite therest of what I know.

MrsJohnCusack Mon 03-Sep-07 00:19:39

faints at gratuitous pic of Ioan Gruffudd

TheDuchessOfNorksBride Mon 03-Sep-07 00:20:33

Is Ioan Gruffalo related to Catherine Zeta Jones?

MrsJohnCusack Mon 03-Sep-07 00:21:06

oh god yes
spent the weeks after DS's birth nearly 6 months ago slumped in a beanbag feeding and gawping at Hornblower

with extra bits of Paul McGann just to make it extra specially swoontastic
