Bend It Like Beckham

A rainout on Monday, the devil will find work for idle hands to do …

So who was the hottie you were chatting up at the beer works last night?


Ah, Ruthie from Houghton Mifflin …


Looked like you were working it wicked haahhd [laughs]


Still am. There is the question of who I really am, the tiger or the trainer. Am I this caged pulse, this spacing strength and silence, or do I stand around it, calming it endlessly, talking, singing, making whatever noise I can to bring it closer to sleep? Clearly I am the trainer …


And there are moments when you put me to sleep. [Laughs] You've got her cell number, right?


But of course.


Then you ought to Bend It Like Beckham!


Yes. Text messaging! Wicked pissa of an idea.


Beckham's got talent with the words. This was my fave: "I want you to put my ***** in your ***** so it ****** all ***** hot and ***** over a gay priest" [Laughs]


[Laughing] Yeah, the "gay priest" is the pièce de résistance!
