    Be honest, had you heard of Audrey Tautou before I posted that pic? And I've told you already, I'm *deliberately* being fussy to highlight what my (totally unattainable) 'ultimate' would be, much like if you were choosing your ultimate hi-fi system, which you couldn't begin to afford - you don't seem to be getting that, daftee:doh:

    Therefore, yes, for those reasons, I *AM* being super fussy... I'd better not mention then that no matter what she looked like, if she didn't have intelligence, class and sophistication, she wouldn't even get a look in - yes lucky her!!

    Can't help being discerning, no matter whether wine, women or song...

    Marco.
    What you like you, eh?

    I'm not "getting that" because "that" wasn't the issue, uber daftee! This all came out of you dismissing Sarah Beeney for looking "hard". And now you're re-writing history to support your argument. I do have a crap memory but I can remember half a dozen pages ago

    I'm determined to have the last word for once, so whatever you say to this I'll just tag the word "word" on it

    Perhaps we should now move on to a debate on who's dream system (which we'll never afford and never even get to hear) sounds best

    Absolutely. That is impressive, I'd say her success is well deserved. And her parents lived "The Good Life", with chickens, goats etc on 9 acres. Hear that Marco? She could teach you a thing or two, if she ever forgives you for calling her haggard

    Suum cuique Latin for "each to their own", or to put it another way "beauty is in the eye of the beholder".

    I chose the photo as perhaps suggesting what she might do to anyone who crossed her path.

    Ha - yes but the discussion has since (as naturally often happens) extrapolated into another areas, namely, what you find facially attractive in a woman, which is what I've been on about for the last few pages, regardless of whatever else has been floating around inside that napper of yours!

    And btw, by 'hard' I meant 'hard-faced', not 'hard', as in tough. I like soft, dainty features on a woman, not jawbones you can land a helicopter on!
