It appears that Jake Gyllenhaal has gone undercover - despite the briefest of glimpses of Jake darting in and out of shops, cafes and trains (often identifiable by beard, backpack, hotness - not necessarily in that order), it has become clear that Jake has now fully adapted to life in the Big Apple. Almost like a figure from myth and legend, Jake Gyllenhaal uses his finely honed urban skills to appear as a glimpse in the corners of a person's eye, or to pop up in the shadows of coffee bars and then he is gone...camouflaged perfectly in to the city environment. Not since those sightings of a Jake Gyllenhaal-esque Sasquatch in the woods around Los Angeles, has he been quite so well blended.
The picture above is a new image from the Edible Schoolyard Fall Harvest Dinner back in October, thanks to IHJ.
Despite the reappearance this week of Jake's recipe for two-inch metaballs (first analysed - and amended - on WDW back in June 2010), the man himself is nowhere to be seen. However, this may be because he is on cakemaking duties for Maggie who today turns 34. If she and Peter are still in Italy then no doubt Jake has his hands full making papier mache dinosaurs with his niece. Nevertheless, happy birthday Maggie!
Although I am not able to bring you a new picture of Jake today, I can bring you a new picture of what I'm sure you'll agree is the next best thing - a couple of giraffes. These were snapped at the Cotswold Wildlife Park last week, a visit that was slightly overshadowed by a tapir jetspraying Mr WDW with pee.
Mr WDW was also under attack by a bunch of ducks during our beautiful autumnal walk by the canal last Sunday. Apparently, bread crumbs aren't as tasty as shoelaces.
I did come across another hero of mine - Han Solo - who was trapped in the wall of a new pizza restaurant in Oxford. For a full account of our visit, do take a look at Conojito's blog report on Excuses and Half Truths.
