Always Wear Something To Bed And Kate Winslet Is A Hero


I have always been one of those people who wear something to bed. It does not have to be much, and more often than not because of my drinking, I pass out before I could get all my clothes off anyway, but I believe there should be something. One of the reasons is the real possibility you will have to run out of the house in the middle of the night to either escape a fire or to follow the rabbit leader. Again, drinking plays a big role in my life.


Another reason to is because that way I would not have to spend all day thinking of Richard Branson like this. “It was terrifying for me because my daughter and nephews, nieces, friends were all staying in the house so I just ran, naked, towards the house to try to see if I can, to make sure I can, get people out.”

Yes, that's right, during a fire that destroyed much of Richard Branson's house in the British Virgin Islands, Richard ran from an adjoining property, flapping away to try and save people. Admirable, but by the time he got there everyone was out of the house, including his 90 year old mother who was literally carried out of the house by Kate Winslet. All told there were about 20 people who made it out just fine and were there to greet Sir Richard as he ran up with his Union Jack waving away. I think he just wanted to show Kate Winslet what he had.

The fire was caused by the high winds of Hurricane Irene and reached up to 90 m.p.h

Glad they're all alive, no pity for the structural loss. Somehow I think this guy will rebound, financially...

MISCH said...

Man, Kate Winslet never fails to be awesome. Great outcome--everyone was saved and he has enough money to rebuild even if insurance doesn't cover it all.

Jennifer said...

This is possibly the weirdest image I have ever had stuck in my head. Naked Richard Branson freaking out while Kate Winslet carries old people out of fires... Thank goodness someone can remain calm!

Wil said...

Damn .. Earthquake in DC guys. Gaia was ticked about my lack of cultural awareness apparently!

Aly said...

So Enty,
Can you now move lifesavin' Kate up to A-list?

Private island = no fire department.

Lelaina Pierce said...

I'm glad everyone made it out ok!
How amazing is Kate? Sigh.

figgy said...

I'm pretty sure Richard Branson looks good naked. He sure looks great in clothes!

And Kate, now I love her even more, sigh!

OT - I'm in Central New York, and the building I'm in was shaking mildly. It was my first earthquake experience.

See? You have to put on something after we bang because there might be a quake and you'll be running out of the house with your lady flower in full view of my kids.

It gets even worse for poor Richard: he went on to say that while he was running naked in the dark, he ran SMACK into a cactus plant on the property. I daresay his Union Jack wasn't exactly waving happily in the breeze at that point...

On the bright side, he was at least able to joke that Kate must have been waiting for the director to yell "CUT!" after running out of the burning building. :-) (So come, how about it, Enty? Make Kate A-list, for God's sake! If winning all those awards AND saving little old ladies from fires doesn't make her A-list, then I just don't know what qualifies anymore.)

if there is a hot partner in your bed, why in the world would you have clothes on?? just sayin..

Sometimes I'm asking myself if you're glamourizing alcoholism with your mentions about your liquor binges, Enty. Not cool.
