Okay...So this is NOT Robin Thicke? - Tia

Apparently some store in Auckland, NZ is selling Robin Thicke kits with the tag line "How to grow a Robin Thicke at home." This is ridiculous.
In case you were wondering, this is Karl Urban. I (Tia) would add him to the ever growing list of favourite Brit Boys but he originally hails from the land down under and thus is disqualified from the list. He can currently be found living in the land of the Kiwis (that's New Zealand for those that didn't know.) I think I'm going to have to do a boys from down under list. Karl, Heath...hmmmm
I stumbled across Karl in the second installment of The Lord of the Rings. I have to be honest. Much like favourite Brit Boy #2, Orlando Bloom, I was not checking for Karl until I watched the bonus stuff. In the film he simply looks like a thick grungy white guy. And then there was the bonus stuff. I wasn't ready. I don't know why I continue to sleep on people in the LOTR. I need to just skip right to the bonus stuff and see what they're working with.
Any whilst I'm thinking about it, can anyone give me some insight on something that I began to think about as I watched the LOTR Thursday night? There is a scene when Galdolf is trying to break the spell off of the king. While doing so, his trusty companions are left the task of keeping the king's body guards at bay. Now y'all know I love Orlando Bloom. But as he was kicking large quantities of butt I found myself liking him a WHOLE lot more. What is about a man fighting that excites a girl? Why is it that a man you weren't really feeling all that much will catch your attention if he goes to blows for you? Is it just me or what? I don't know what it is but there is something about a man that is willing to mentally and PHYSICALLY protect me that makes me all mushy inside. I have a real special place in my heart for thugs. (We will not talk about how cute I think Nelly is, nor will we discuss my strange fascination with Murphy Lee...."I can see she never seen Murphy Lee before, cuz she's just standing there as if I'm shooting free throws" We don't talk about that.) But am I the only one? Am I the only one who wants a boo that's a little rough around the edges? A man that will get in another man's face for disrespecting me. A man that will fight for me, figuratively and literally? If I'm the only one then I'll be that. I'm not ashamed. How LL needed a round the way girl, I need a round the way guy.
