Having spent a significant portion of her life flying around in pirate films, Keira Knightley has decided it is time to take some time off, go to the pub with friends and possibly find a Flea-ish bloke.

Earlier in press reports, Keira revealed her longed for ideal man is a “mix of Orlando Bloom and Johnny Depp.” Knightley believes the two male stars morphed together would produce every girl’s “dream guy.”

“If I could have a mixture of the two that would be ideal…I think if it was possible to have a bit both, a bit of a nice guy and bit of a bad boy, that would be good.”

Modesty prevents me from making the obvious suggestion. Though in fairness I do not think the small ads of whatever newspaper that is are going to be much help to her. MySpace is where the "it" is "at" (nsfw).

You say this and yet you have not seen my album cover yet...

I am a near-perfect Bloom/Depp combination. Now, if you don't mind, Keira and I would like to be alone....

Anyway, I thought you were planning on settling down and starting a family with Paris Hilton.

I admit Paris and I are probably more compatible. Though I should add it is in the differences that the spice of a relationship may often be found.

As to your Bloom/Depp claims I cannot say I am surprised. It has long been my impression that Flea-readers most often represent a dangerous yet empathetic masculinity.

When contemplating "dangerous masculinity" I'm afraid Orlando and Johnny never quite come to mind.

I am soooooo not giving off the masculine vibe, am I?

Orlando Bloom is creepy.

Anyone who has managed to woo Vanesa Paradis counts as dangerous in my mind!

And Orlando Bloom... creepy? It is the elf thing, right? Lots of people are creeped out by elves.

You didn't answer the question. Dang.

That was clearly a rhetorical question.

On an unrelated note, earlier this evening I tried watching "Domino" by Ridley Scott. All I can say is Ridley Scott should stay clear of caper films and not try to be Tarantino. Keira Knightley giving a lap-dance could not save the picture. I gave up about half hour into it.

So I then started watching "Prozac Nation" because I read something somewhere recently that said Christina Ricci had a great monologue in there somewhere. I was not heartened that this one too claimed to be based on a true story; as true as the book was meant to be at least. I am about half way through and am sorely disappointed that Ricci thought this was worth co-producing. It is a descent into the pathological narcissism of every "poet" I have ever dated.

Am now wishing I had rented "Girl, Interrupted". I don't think Wynona would have let me down like this.

I should have said "boring pathological narcissism"...

Have you read Prozac Nation? I've not seen the movie, as it got horrible reviews, and I couldn't imagine the likes of Anne Heche playing a psychiatrist. Ahh the irony.

At any rate, the book itself starts off very well (quality of writing not subject matter) and has several strong chapters, but the rest is clearly filler material. Wurtzel whines about how much her terrible childhood is to blame for her behavior, which of course shouldn't be the case, as her childhood as described was quite typical. Oh, and she reminds us countless times how smart and skinny she is.

"Girl, Interrupted" is a pretty decent film, or I wouldn't have managed to watch it three times thus far. As a bonus, Angelina Jolie is hawt as always.
