Role models


Still so sick! In addition to the coughing & sore throat, I’ve picked up a fever as well. As you can imagine I spent another wonderful, miserable day cloistered inside the house.

Surfing around the internet, I ran across an interesting bit of information on the actor Oliver Reed. Reed died while filming the movie Gladiator, in which he played the part of Proximo, and according to the IMDB, there’s a bit more to that story:

He died of a heart attack in a bar after downing three bottles of rum and winning five sailors in arm-wrestling.


Also listed are these interesting quotes:

“I do not live in the world of sobriety.”
“My only regret is that I didn’t drink every pub dry and sleep with every woman on the planet.”

Now there’s a role model! There’s far more there as well, in what has to be the longest “trivia” page for an actor I’ve ever seen.

Back to recuperating!
