Over on his blog, James has a quote from Richard Burton.
"I rather like my reputation, actually, that of a spoiled genius from the Welsh gutter, a drunk, a womanizer; it's rather an attractive image."
I was recently talking to a man who said, 'I used to be a drunk and a womanizer.' (I mix in the best circles.) I looked him up and down. (It was okay; he didn't notice. He was too busy talking about himself.) All I can assume is that he's more attractive when he's drunk. Or maybe he just imagines he's a womanizer when he's drunk.
I'm sorry, that's horrid, but honestly some men. I mean I can see the appeal of Richard Burton but this particular one ...
