Shaken Not Stirred

Lines, Lines, Lines, Those Damn Lines

I was watching "Entertainment Tonight" not because I like that sort of stuff. Well I sort of do, but I don't make it a point to watch it on television--I read it while waiting to pay for groceries at Krogers. Again, I digress--one of the stories was about Tom Selleck. He was described as sexy even at the age of 60 (don't quote me on his age, I was not really listening). When they showed this sunbeaten hairy man, he didn't seem sexy to me. He can never beat the week of the Hoff presented by Mr. Shife. The thing that struck me was all the age lines on this actor's face. They were creased like a sheet of loose leaf made into a paper airplane by a first-grade boy. He had this one gaping line perpedicular to his eyebrows that could mimic the grand canyon. The make-up department from his new movie couldn't even hide the gash. In the clip of his new movie, I couldn't take my eyes off of it. I couldn't even tell you who else was in the clip (I know he was asking out a blonde chick because they first focused on her) or what the clip was about.

As for me, I don't ever want to have creases in my face. I will inject botox into it before I have that weather worn, ,beef jerky look that horrified me into looking up from the Harry Potter novel I was reading during the E.T. interview with the former Magnum P.I. celebrity/dried cow hide/dog chew toy.

This was suppose to be posted the morning after the great Texas-USC game. But in all the excitement, I couldn't sleep till 4 a.m. I didn't wake up till about noon. AWESOME GAME!


  • yer funny....

  • tom selleck is kinda sexy for his age, as is sean connery...and as for the creases...much sexier than that plastic look, like bert renolds- yikes! lol

  • That was a great game. It is strange how the media went from slobbering over Reggie Bush to slobbering over Vince Young. They say wrinkles are a sign of distinction but it's not the kind of distinction that I am aiming for either.

  • Angel- Botox? Tom Selleck used to be an alcoholic who spent way too much coked out of his mind while sunbathing without sunscreen. You are not going to be that wrinkly!

    By Blogger Anhoni Patel, at 1:04 AM  

  • I bet you'd still look cute even at 60! And you will be crease-free sans botox!

  • One word: sunscreen.

    I gave up my 'summer tanning bed sessions' this past year---I don't want to look old!

    By Blogger the_mrs, at 7:50 AM  

  • Wow! I've got to agree with Vani, Sean Connery is the only man that I've seen to really age well.

    I'm sorry to hear ya wanna get Botox. Did you know that stuff is actually Botulism? Oh well, I guess the things some of us will do for beauty.

    I keep getting a few wrinkles here and there. I also get a grey hair from time to time. While I don't bother with the wrinkles, I do color my hair. There's no damn way that I'll go grey! :)

  • C'mon - you mean you wanna look like Burt Reynolds? I swear, the man is now incapable of any expression...

    By Blogger Doug, at 10:07 AM  

  • I'm scared to look up his picture on google, now. Thanks. *shivers*

    By Blogger Luke, at 10:24 AM  

  • well, deary. did you see dick and jane? with the botox fiasco? so is what you're saying, you're NOT going to grow old gracefully, or anywhere close to it? I"M WITH YA. it's OK for men to use facial creams ya know. thats why all the men actors, like selleck, burt reynolds, and robert redford look so nasty. they were too macho to use eye gel, and crack cream. burt had some work done though, and he looks even worse. i guess i just don't much care for wrinkles period.

  • don't worry angel, you won't get as many wrinkles as that man, cuz you're asian, and we asian age very well....

    and you better watch what you say, cuz maybe you'll be the odd exception for having said such horrible things about old men...

    By Blogger totolehero, at 12:23 PM  

  • are you serious about botox? because if you are, you must be the first male to admit it!

    By Blogger Chloe, at 1:03 PM  

  • First of all, Hook 'Em, a thousand times over. This is one of the greatest weeks of my life.

    Now, Tom Selleck. He is totally one of my heroes, but only because of the stache. That thing exudes "I don't give a damn" masculinity. I love it.

    By Blogger Vince, at 1:44 PM  

  • Normall I'm picky about staches, but it certainly looks good on Mr. Selleck:-) You'll age gracefully b/c of your sense of humor! No need for Botox!

  • Maybe because I am married or maybe because I am getting older but I don't worry about my wrinkles so much. I just don't want back hair or a giant bald spot on the top of my head. So far so good, but I have seen some of these older dudes and it is like at a certain age they just seem blossom back hair. I don't ever want to see that day.

    By Blogger mrshife, at 5:09 PM  

  • Now I will be focusing on that creavas next time I see him. Someone pointed out the crooked nose that Owen Wilson has, now that is what I focus on when I see him.
    I will be thinking of you when I look at Tom Selleck! hahaha

    By Blogger Lee Ann, at 6:04 PM  

  • i saw that episode too, haha. he's not that bad. not downright sexy, but something about tom is rather attractive still. btw, nice blog. my sister's in med school as well. i don't know if she's gonna make it.

    By Blogger joey♥, at 6:25 PM  

  • Poor Tom, shooting all those scenes for Magnum PI in Hawaii out in the unforgiving sun. That'll wrinkle your nose and face faster than a stinking gas station restroom. Happy New Year!

    By Blogger Walter, at 7:11 PM  

  • Aw, don't be to hard on Tom, he does have a certain...something!

    By Blogger Tai, at 11:19 PM  

  • Botox ? Just look at Liza Minelli's husband (I forget his name).

    He's had plastic surgery and Botox. He now looks really scary.

    By Blogger Ben Heller, at 11:25 PM  

  • The game was a bit too exciting for me. Never thought Magnum was a good looking guy. I think he appeals to beauty of an older generation. Now the lookers tend to have a softer less testosterone look, except Brad Pitt. I think he’s gonna look like a leather bag (Robert Redford) some day too

    By Blogger Liz, at 12:59 AM  

  • link right ahead :). do those crest whitestrips work? i might look into that.

    By Blogger joey♥, at 1:13 AM  

  • In its day, I liked watching Magnum PI, but I never really went for Tom Selleck's look.

    The good thing though about being a guy is that "wrinkles" can translate to "ruggedly handsome".

    By Blogger Spider Girl, at 2:03 AM  

  • Botox schmotox, dude. I don't even want to think of that until I'm like Phyllis Diller or something. I haven't seen Selleck lately so I have no clue how bad he's looking these days. Sounds pretty bad.

    I just spilled beer on the keyboard so I'm done here.

    By Blogger ***Double_Oh_No***, at 2:33 AM  

  • I think that if you eat healthy and live a healthy lifestyle that you will age well.

    That's what I'm hoping for at least.

    I don't know that I would want Botox but I would really like to be able to afford a facial and a massage twice a month.

    By Blogger Sweet Tea, at 2:13 PM  

  • You know...I've never really thought Tom Sellek was that cute. Now Pierce Brosnon...well. That's a whole other story!

    By Blogger Lindsey, at 10:57 AM  

  • Age lines and wrinkles do suit some faces. Sometimes I find wrinkled faces very beautiful.
    I feel there are more things than looks that might make a person seem sexy. I find all smart women sexy ;-)

    By Blogger Wriju, at 4:17 PM  

  • Does that botox stuff work? good post man.

    By Blogger Chairborne Stranger, at 8:42 PM  

  • I have been getting Botox for the last seven years. I have a line that runs vertically about an inch long in between my eyebrows. I've been making that line since I was a child (in the 1950's)and I have to have collagen injected behind it to make it go away. I am a Botox and collagen whore!!!! And OOPS! Did I sort of give my age away???LOL Well, I've gotten to the point that I don't need the Botox anymore, I just can't make that wrinkle, and it has become permanent! (WooHoo) So give poor Tom Selleck a break...he probably doesn't care that he's wrinkly!!

  • I hope you know that I hold you personally responsible for all the sleep I lost last night trying to see if I had lines in my face. lol

    By Blogger Ruben, at 9:44 PM  

  • thank you sir :)

    By Blogger joey♥, at 10:53 PM  

  • i personally am learning to love my wrinkles.

    By Blogger cher, at 2:04 AM  

  • That's why I try not to smile too much.....
