A couple of other nice ones:

It's great to get so many volenteers from the show biz world helping out with their proformances nnd answering the pnones.

I know. It was wonderful of him to give his time this way. I found a nice picture...scroll up. He looks gorgeous.
He is such a giving man. Not only with his money but his time as well. And so, too, the rest of the Hollywood community.
great of them all to help out with the charity and such a worthwhile cause.
and how brilliant would that be to get to speak to ewan!

and thanks for the virtual gift Anika ;)
I know, it's really wonderful what they all did. Goodness, I can't even imagine what it would be like to speak to Ewan. I'd probably shake like a leaf and not be able to say anything coherent at all!

You're very welcome, Clare. :)

ETA: Forgot to mention - I found a nice photo of him...scroll up.

eee!! Can we choose who to talk to? Or will I have to call and donate repeatedly til I get to him? :)

Yes, I know, I'm so single minded. I have donated already though, and I'm glad they're doing this. Those poor people need all the help they can get! I hope they get tons of money tonight!
LOL! I'm sure it was just luck of the draw. Imagine hearing that gorgeous voice on the other end of the phone! I practically get the shivers just thinking about it. I'd probably babble something stupid and incoherent. :)

I donated through UNICEF earlier in the week too. I hope they made scads of money tonight. Those poor people in Haiti. They didn't have anything to speak of before, and now this. It's so unspeakably awful.
OMG!!!! Can you imagine? If I get Brad Pitt or Jack Nicholson or anybody, I'm going to say..."Could you pass me over to Ewan McGregor?" ROFL! I'm going to call.
Aww, I just saw him on tv! Sadly, even seeing Ewan can't lighten my heart. Everytime they show a baby my heart breaks all over again.

This is doing a weird autoplay thing every time I refresh my flist. Could you put it under a cut? Thanks....
