Beard of the Day


I know. Elijah Wood looks like a baby, and I like older men. But there is something about his young, fresh, innocent face that is super appealing. And I love the thin beard that extends all the way up the side of his face. Also, he has the most gorgeous and mesmerizing eyes.



The reason that EW is on my radar this week is because he is starring in a new quirky TV series, "Wilfred." His neighbor's dog is actually a "pot-smoking, alcoholic, foul-mouthed Australian man wearing a dog suit" (The Smoking Section). Hee hee hee....that sounds fabulous!

Hope that all of you have a great weekend. I am taking my son to a 2-week sleep-away camp on Sunday, and I am only slightly freaking out. I told him I was going to make a life-size poster of him, put it on the wall of my office, and tape record him saying "Hey. I'm going down to the basement to play XBOX."

Happy Weekend,
Penelope

I'm with you on preferring manlier mature men, but those eyes are beautiful and he seems so likably sweet. Watched Wilfred last night and I was not impressed, though. I expected more funny. Good luck to your son and to you. He'll have fun. You'll miss him and worry.

It's not a big step for your son - this is fun for your son, it's a big step for you!
I've been wondering if this dog show will be good. I do like Elijah Wood, but he does look like such a baby.

Hi Sherri....Oh no! The show wasn't good? Bummer. I loved the premise for it....I like wacky comedies with a dark edge. But I don't actually watch very much TV....really only Top Chef and Project Runway religiously. I know my son will have fun, but it's weird when your 4-member family turns into a 3-member family.

Hi Julia! EW def. has a baby face. I'm surprised he can grow a beard...hee hee!

I hadn't heard about the show. Sounds fun, at least. Hey, good luck to your son on this new adventure! (and you, too!)

Penelope said...

Hi Carolyn! Thanks! Hope you are having a good summer and enjoying your new place!

Have you ever seen Try Seventeen with him? I had SUCH a crush on him in that film.
