    Isn’t She A Dreamboat?

    It’s very funny that she actually uses the term dreamboat in real life. Guess that must’ve been improv.

    I’ve just realized how much Lea and Tina Fey look alike! (and why I like them both).

    That joke about Brad Pitt being 48 would still work today.

    Please read this carefully ;

    Every one of us has sinned against God. We’ve lied, we’ve stolen, we’ve sinned sexually, and we’ve taken His name in vain; which makes us liars, thieves, fornicators and blasphemers … Yet this is only four of our many transgressions .

    The problem is, we can never ‘outweigh’ our sin with good works because God is perfect in Holiness, meaning his standard is beyond our reach. He is also perfect in Justice, meaning, he will bring EVERY sin to light. The punishment for our sin is death, and Hell; a place of Eternal Fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth .

    Fortunately God is also perfect in Love, so 2000 years ago He left his throne in heaven, and came to earth as a man named Jesus Christ. While here, he lived a perfectly righteous life, only to take the punishment that We deserved; Our sinless creator became Our sin, and endured a gruesome death on a cross for our sake .
    Right before he died, he said ‘it is finished’ .. meaning, the debt for our sins has been paid in full. And on the third day, he defeated death and rose from the grave. So now, we can go free from the wrath of God’s judgement not by earning it, but rather, as a free gift of grace ..

    Except gifts can be either accepted or rejected. So this is what you must do in response ;

    Humbly admit to God that you have sinned against him. Then, confess with your mouth that Jesus Christ is Lord, Your savior, and the ruler of your life from this moment forward ( Romans 10:9 ) .

    Do these things, and you will be saved .

    If you do so sincerely, God will grant you a new heart which no longer finds comfort in sin, but instead desires to read and obey his word. He will also grant you Eternal life in his presence; The greatest pleasure on earth doesn’t even come close to what God is preparing for believers in the afterlife.

    You’ve been informed ; Now the choice is yours. What you do with this information will determine where you will be for ETERNITY.. Meaning, this is the single most critical decision you will EVER make .

    Jesus Christ awaits you this very moment. Do not put off surrendering your life to him, because your tomorrow isn’t guaranteed… and as it is written ( Hebrews 9 : 27 );

    ‘It is appointed unto man ONCE to die, but after this, THE JUDGMENT’.

    Lea’s Pretty Woman audition story is interesting. The movie was originally supposed to be as she described – a drama about prostitution and drugs – and did not have a happy ending. Lea either auditioned before Disney took over and turned it into a Rom-Com or her agent forgot to tell her what was happening. 😆😆

    Well Pretty Woman wasn’t meant to be a comedy and they only changed it into one after Disney pressured them, so she wasn’t really wrong

    Lea’s great, but she’s no Julia Roberts. Lea’s the girl next door. Julia is the girl next door, if next door is the Vanderbilt Estate in N C.

    Lea was my Sigourney Weaver when she was in her under ware in Howard the Duck.

    I would like to think Lazer and Tazer from AG were both hitting on Lea casually by leaning on her car and filling it with tennis balls.
