EWAN McGregor!

This is one beautiful man.

And really a brilliant actor.  He is performing an amazing range of roles and in many ways outperforming (IMHO) his contemporaries.

One of my very favorite films from last year, and for all time, is Salmon Fishing in the Yemen, starring two genius actors:   Ewan McGregor and the goddess, Emily Blunt.  Not to mention the brilliant Kristin Scott Thomas.

I've watched this film maybe twenty times since it was released.  I watched it again the other day a couple of times.   Ewan is so fucking charming.   But I was utterly enchanted when he used the word "doolally" in his sexy Scottish accent (everything about this dude is sexy).

I LOVE this word, "doolally", that his character uses.    It describes the world in which we live.  This is the definition I found from

doolally [duːˈlælɪ]
Slang out of one's mind; crazy In full doolally tap
[originally military slang, from Deolali, a town near Bombay, the location of a military sanatorium + Hindustani tap fever]
Collins English Dictionary – Complete and Unabridged © HarperCollins Publishers 1991, 1994, 1998, 2000, 2003

Great word to use for out time.   Especially for the insane "Tea" and Republican Party. Not to mention the religions (especially Christian) around the world:   "Fucking" Doolally.

You should see the brilliant movie, Salmon Fishing In the Yemen!
