Wasn't Elijah adorable on Leno? The laundry!! The cold cure!! But oh the pain of this one-sided relationship - I want to discuss things with him. For instance, when he was talking about eating Croque Monsieur in Paris - I wanted to ask him if he knew that if he had Croque Madame instead he'd get the same thing with an egg on top!! And when he said he wished he could grow a full beard I wanted to plead with him not to hide the lovely chin cleft any more than he does already. And when he was talking about not taking antibiotics, only natural remedies, I wanted to ask why, when he's concerned about such things, he's ok with tobacco. On second thoughts, perhaps its just as well I couldn't ask him that last one - may not have gone down too well!!

I have a confession to make ... anyone who knows me will be aware how completely and utterly passionate I am about Frodo and yet I have never celebrated Froday with a Frodo picspam!! Isn't that terrible? My excuse is that I usually work on Froday so just don't have the time. Sadly, today is no exception but I do have time to just post a random FroMo (Frodo Moment)or rather, in this case, Frolijah moment:

“Arena: Renowned luvvy Sir Ian McKellen plays Gandalf. Is he very thespian? Because we’ve read his website and he tends to slip into Olde English.
Elijah: He does – but he’s very intelligent and very well read and very eloquent and he always has beautiful ways of saying things. I’ve seen interviews and he forms these beautiful lyrical quotes about the experience. You can have an absolutely normal conversation with him but he’s also really funny and VERY flirtatious.
Arena: So did he try it on with you?
Elijah: Oh, he’s flirtatious with everyone. It’s wonderful, it’s very alive…”


I have begun the massive tidy-up of all things LOTR/Elijah - I'm hoping this will help me to post here more efficiently and more frequently in future:)

I love this Leno interview so much! You can see how an adorably unashamed dork/geek he is with the laundry and the medicine. Then he can be talking about that 24 hour travel challenge just like the eager 24 year old he is. Then he totally doted on the little old actor fellow and was so solicituous and kind to him.

Jay almost unknowingly seemed to catch on to that essence of Elijah that seems so very ancient and wise when he jokingly said.."How old are you... 75?"

Elijah WOULD be just as comfortable sitting with a bunch of elderly folk talking about medicines and the simple joys of doing laundry as he is with the biggest names in the entertainment industry or his own music loving buddies.

He is truly one of a kind. I honestly don't know anyone else like him.

Oh! And the fact that he LOVED the big band swing dancing in the club they went to! That he just had to dance to it! I love that stuff too and that he really enjoys it just thrilled me no end! I'll dance to big band music with him any day!

That is so very true. And I just love to hear him talk about mundane, everyday things like laundry. I think you're right, he's equally at home talking to kids, elderly people, big names, fans, waiters, shop assistants - anyone. He just seems to love his fellow human beings :)
