No doubt many of us remember the ACLU auction last year - well, now we reap the rewards. At the end of April, two special people had the opportunity to spend a day with Jake Gyllenhaal, hairpiece and all, on the set of Nailed in Columbia - Ted and Lisa. Ted had the dubious pleasure of watching Brokeback Mountain next to me in Oxford, and no doubt suffered bruises from being gripped by me through every emotional scene - and this is a movie with a lot of emotional scenes. I'll never forget it. Through him, and all through Jake, I have had the chance to get to know another friend, Lisa.
I was just thrilled this evening when Lisa sent me the photos of herself, Ted and Jake from their day, along with a link to their Excellent Adventure. You have to leave a comment to be befriended and then you can read all 70-odd pages of the encounter. I'm now reading it myself and will be back to discuss - Good job I have the day off tomorrow!
