mrsthing: I have great respect for your opinions,because in your prolific postings you come across as aware, bright,and very intelligent and well-informed.
You mention "AF": Is this code for "ALyce Eichenberger",in which case it would be "AE"...
As regards his next blonde conquest(s)
again I beg to differ;you think that no girl is now after him for his money, but women are ALWAYS after blokes for their money!!In Cleese's case there is still the OTHER half of his income since
1992,THE other 2 PROPERTIES;and he probably has other assets.These young gold-diggers won't be satisfied until they've bled John dry.

"AF" means "Alyce Faye"--her real surname, for ther moment is Cleese. She uses Eichelberger professionally.

His latest fling is a high-ranking executive at some big name cosmetics firm. And she's young enough to be more independent than us old gals who grew up with Cinderella as our ideal.

But he's said it's too early to say where it might lead, and she says it's just a very close friendship. I say let's leave them alone to work it out for themselves. There's got to be something more interesting to talk about than John Cleese's love life.

BTW, just heard that the grand pier in WSM was destroyed by fire. But I doubt JC is capable of arson. Besides, he didn't live there for very long.

mrsthing:Suggestion: How about we talk about John Cleese's love-life???
BTW:I was just about to mention the News that the 100-year-old Victorian-era Pier at Weston-Super-Mare burnt down last night,producing fierce flames shooting up into the night/early morning sky,and clouds of thick rancid black smoke...I wonder if Mr.Cleese's derogatory comments about Weston somehow managed to put a curse on the Pier???

Then again, who among can't say that at one time or other, he hasn't set fire to some great public building (or pier)?

Well, I could...

John's comments might have inspired some criminally insane arsonist, but other than that, I don't know. I'm sure there'll be people who decide there's a connection. But did he really live there all that long?
 
Re: John Cleese doesn't like his hometown! by bIG bLOGGER on 1 August 2008 3:23pm
 
No,he left his home town when he was still young,therefore my hypothesis looks rather shaky.
 
Re: John Cleese doesn't like his hometown! by mrsthing on 1 August 2008 5:53pm
 
Interestingly enough, though, he recently posted on his blog a little piece about why we should appreciate arsonists...

I must say, I like his writing style a lot when he isn't writing comedy.
 
Re: John Cleese doesn't like his hometown! by bIG bLOGGER on 4 August 2008 5:49pm
 
mrsthing: Yes,JC can write well,but I don't think we should be "appreciating" arsonists,do you?? Did you really mean to say that? After all,arson is a felony,a criminal offence.
On June 11,2008,THE TIMES (People Column) noted John Cleese's remarks about the C4 TV show:"Celebrity Big Brother":he is once again in derogatory mood:---
(Quote):"Channel 4 have frequently resorted to quite ludicrous levels of bribery,but I simply do not want to appear in this TV show,neither have I any inclination to be interviewed by the clearly insane Davina McCall.In fact I have devised a Reality TV show of my own,which,much like Big Brother,is based on studying animal behaviour,but MY show will contain genuine animal behaviour such as chewing,grooming,spitting,and rutting.It will be called BIG LLAMA,and I expect most llamas,even the odd vicuna or alpaca,will surely want to stay up all night to watch.."
..one doesn't know if he is serious,or is being brutally sarcastic..possibly the latter.

Read the blog, bIG. It makes sense in the entire context.

Of course he's joking about the Llama reality show! And poking fun at the seeming addiction of American viewers to "reality" shows.

JC speaks his mind, grumpy or otherwise. I say "Good for him!"
 
Re: John Cleese doesn't like his hometown! by peripatetically on 5 August 2008 12:19am
 
Me too. He has a right to speak his mind. I think he's interesting. And what's wrong with not liking your hometown? I love mine, but people can't help where they are born. If I had been born in Florida or New Jersey, I'd have died a million deaths if I hadn't moved! And no offense to anyone from Ohio, but I know people who hate it there, where they were born.
