Dear George Clooney

A tale of unrequited love.
Have you ever sent or received a love letter only to realise that feelings were not reciprocated?

Take George and me for instance.

We have had 'a thing going on' ever since I ran into him in an LA travel agency in 1991 (in his Booker Brook days on the Roseanne show).

Excuse me? What did you just think - that I am delusional?

Haven't you ever wondered why they had to cut George's scenes out of the Thin Red Line which was filmed in Australia? I'm not saying anything, I'm just putting it out there ......read between the lines people!

Today I received George's latest letter and, as painful as it is, I've finally had to face some hard cold facts. George is Love is blind. It's time to let go of the dream and call it quits.



Dear George

Your letter came today.


It was 15 pages long and the only words written were "Lilly, Lilly, you are my one true love", over and over again.

To be honest George I don't know who writes your lines these days but.....they need to try a whole lot harder
!


Thanks for yet another autographed photo. I will put it with the 4,000 others.

I've got to tell you though, I was shocked. Your face..... was it a stroke?

I don't want to shun you and your advances so publicly in front of the 'people of the Internet' but I fear that this way may be the only way for you to understand.

Well, short of calling
Perez and putting the word out on the streets, that is.

There's really no easy way to say this. But say it I must.

George, I am over YOU.


Over everyone of your egos. The hangers on. And the secrecy of Us.

I have hung on to this dream for 18 years now George.

Thinking that once
Max, the 230lb love of your life was out of the way that all would be well. For you and me.

Sure, traversing the globe, meeting you in cheap motels away from prying eyes for stolen moments of passion has been exciting.

However, at the same time, it's been tiring. Somewhat tawdry. And truly foolhardy.

I know you think because I live on the other side of the world that I don't know what's going on.
I see. I hear. I read. I have a strong network of blogger blabbermouths who are happy to talk .

Don't tell me George........ another waitress?

Who do you think you are? An international playboy? You are living in la la land.

You've changed. I don't know who you are anymore. And what's more George, you're teetering precariously on the wrong side of pathetic.

Look at Brad. Six kids in three years. Mildly questionable I'll grant you, but at least he is making the world a more beautiful place, one child at a time...

You see, there's a fine line between mature & handsome and past it & sleazy. A fine line George, and you're hanging on by your finger nails.

Move on.
Accept it's done and leave me alone.

Just turn and go and don't look back George.


Remember the good times and try to find someone to love you, as hard as it may be. Someone nearly as great as me.

Ciao Baby. Really.


Lilly

Note to readers: Other than 'running into' the real George in 1991 - this letter sums up the urban myth that my original Clooney encounter has become over the years. Don't sue me George. You will appreciate the exposure one day. Any publicity is good publicity. Right?

Back to you. Are you going to write the loves of your life a real love letter this Valentines Day? I once denounced this day as commercial rubbish but I think the time is right to focus on a lot more love in the world. Valentine's Day need not be the exclusive realm of couples – it can be an expression of friendship and platonic love. I am of the opinion that it is a day of inclusion and an opportunity to recognise all we have in our lives. Check out this great post at Steamed Sponge about writing a letter to a loved one. No George, that won't be you.

    Dear Lilly, don't break my heart, my achy breaky heart...is that better? Love George

  5. Hey, wow, what a shock to see my blog name there at the bottom! thanks. You went back and found that? Whoa.

    Gosh, I read it myself now and now it makes my head dizzy, my heart light. Love is mysterious.

    "and try to find someone to love you as hard as it may be. Someone nearly as great as me."
    --Love that line. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  6. LOL! Lily, this was great. I feel the same way. I´m so over him. And Richard Gere too.
    But I don´t think I´ll be writing a love letter to anyone this Valentines...not my style. But maybe some Chocolate! :)

    ReplyDelete
  7. I find it funny how people put down Valentine's as a commercial Hallmark holiday only ,brushing side its historicity but then love Halloween also resurrected for fun and commercial profit--hardley a religious holiday now either, ... as is the case with xmas for agnostics, etc! Go figure.

    ReplyDelete
  8. This is so very, very clever. As well as very, very funny. It's like you are saying give up all the so called false things we 'love' and look around us to the ones that really matter.
    PS If its any consolatation isnt George Clooney meant to be short?

    ReplyDelete
  9. You are my favorite "crazy" I truly love that you can make me think, laugh, or roll my eyes with every post. You have a gift my dear!

    ReplyDelete
  10. There! Now you've told him once and for all! Haha.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Too Funny Lilly! (I think he's gay that's why he let you go in the first place) Have a wonderful ending :-)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Ah, Lilly, you can always shine a twinkling, giggling light into my day/afternoon/morning/night and I do love your humor. Sorry, George didn't realize what he had that day -- back then!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Love your blog!
    Its totally George's loss!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Here is a love letter, I love your blog Miss Lilly. HILARIOUS!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Oh, for the bittersweet of unrequited love!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Loved this, Lilly. Better than Letters to My Daughter except those are real. And yes, maybe I will write a letter to my love. S deserves it. Thanks for reminding me.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh my gosh George is such a bastard! Making you use your blog to break-up with him. Some men just can not take the rejection and must force us to make public a spectacle of ourselves. They make us seem like we are the mean ones. You stay strong sista, you move on with grace! hahahaha

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh, Lillyness! You're the funniest one! Love your 'you and George' affair! George doesn't know what he's done - you're a jewel. He's not worth it, Dear One!! lol
    You're still my favorite hoot!
    Be a sweetie,
    Shelia ;)

  19. Lilly, you crack me up. Even in what feels like the darkets time of my life, you still made me laugh. That's why I love YE so much!! =)

    **hugs**

    ReplyDelete
  20. Oh Lady! You crack me up!!!

    I had a real thing for Barry Cowsill when I was a tween! It was true love, I tell you!

    ReplyDelete
  21. That is absolutely hilarious. Thanks for the smile.

    ReplyDelete
  22. George looks a little like Popeye in that tux pic. Still damned adorable, though.

    How about writing a love letter to yourself? I think that would be a wonderful exercise. We really do take ourselves for granted. Time for a little recognition.

    Peace - Rene

  23. Hahahahhhhhaaaahehehuhuhuhahaha....

    hahahahheoahaHAHAHAHahaha...

    There was a man called George Clooney
    I’ll bet you a bucket full townies
    If only he knew
    What he missed in you
    He wouldn’t be such a loony!

    I miss Valentines day on a regular basis - I even never knew about it until I came to Canada :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. A friend of mine just emailed me this, it was so funny. How many women all over the world have or have had a crush of George. Does that mean Lilly that given you have given him the heave-ho that I now have a chance? I will take it with both hands never mind the waitresses he is fasinated with, LOL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Well, at least you let George down easy. He must accept the facts and move on to life without Lilly.

    I agree that we need a lot more love in the world today, whether it is platonic love, best friends love, true love or neighborly love. Maybe if more people knew at least "some" kind of love there would be fewer wars and less crime.

    Terrific post once again, Lilly. Have a great weekend.!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. That is wonderful blog. You have a way Lilly. I have heard people breaking up via 'text msgs', emails, phone calls, Facebook, orkut etc. But doing it on a blog is just out of this world. ha ha. so much imagination.
    I love your blog....!!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Poor Geroge I feel sorry for him. Now he is outed but I can see it had to be done. Lilly you have been so patient. 18 years? My oh my. It was time he got the chop. You can do way better. I have a box of love letters. Enjoyed this blog a lot.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Way to be strong Lilly. I'm thinking you've got someone else waiting in the wings for you. Hugh Jackman, perhaps??

    ReplyDelete
  29. does that mean I have a chance at him now?

    ReplyDelete
  30. HAHAHAA omg I loved it so much ...
    I actually guffawed at...
    What do you mean, am I delusional?

    and I'm so over you in bold haha ...

    Just what I needed to hear!!!! xxxx

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wonderful! You have such a knack for putting that humor into your writing. I love it!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh - you have popped my Georgie bubble... Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  33. @ Tabitha - your blog is one big love leter of things to be grateful for!

    @ Richies - well if he doesn't I am calling in the Hollywood big shots, lol!!! Say a prayer.

    @ TheChickGeek - aww that is a nice thing to say, truly!! Made me smile!

    @ Sarah - oh I love someone who can write a love letter and they are few and far between aren't they?

    @ George - oh very funny, like you have ever bothered to read my blog before now. Don't make this worse for yourself George, (LOL, whoever posted this!!!!)

    @ Mmmm - oh I found that post last night and I thought it was fantastic so hope you dont mind!! It might give a lot of people some inspiration. It did me.

    ReplyDelete
  34. That's the trouble with women like you - fickle!

    ReplyDelete
  35. @ cjw666 - LOL!!!!! That's right we are never happy!!!! And clearly George isn't either.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ah, vintage Lilly :) That WAS hilarious....but poor George! And yes, is it Hugh waiting for you now? That rascal...but yes, he does have a thing for mature blondes, not the dolly types...that's you, my lovely :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOL!!! That's hilarious Lilly! I'm so glad I have your blog to have a laugh to feel better! :)

    Just to add though...I do think Valentine's day is just another money-making day. Commercialisim! The day makes me sick sometimes ( And yes, you guessed right...I'm a single woman and not too happy about it!) :P

    ReplyDelete
  38. @ Banoffi - yes I would guess he is around 5 9" or so. As I am tall he is too short for me, ha ha!!

    @ Sandi - who you calling crazy lol. Thanks for your sweet comment.

    @ Christine - oh it had to be done for his own good and mine. Now what to do with 4,000 signed pics of George Clooney - ebay.

    @ Darsden - not sure about the gay bit but I guess look at Warren Beatty he eventually settled down and had four kids late in life.

    @ Sylvia - he he, oh being stupid and silly comes naturally sometimes. Takes my mind off the economy and politics. LOL

    @ Glenda - thanks for dropping by - oh yes I am sure he will see it like that one day too.

    ReplyDelete
  39. lolll..i loved this post. I could never write a love letter,,, i'm to stupid to do so..I would end up writing something really out of whack and silly.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Oh, Dear Lillyness! Just keep the framed 8 x 10 of George and you, put it in a scrapbook of 'loves gone bad' and move on!! You'll find someone worthy of your wonderfulness. You may want to look elsewhere - not stars - I think they're in to themselves a little too much. I know! Find a really old guy with lots of $$! That'll work! LOL
    Be a sweetie and I so enjoyed your visit.

  48. Huge CHUCKLES! I don’t really buy into the commercialism of Valentine’s Day... although I am a sucker for roses and chocolates (laughs). Anyway, this year, I’m planning to write hubby a Love Letter... but at the moment I'm finding it really hard articulate without it sounding too cheesy... at this rate, it’ll probably be handed over way after Feb 14th (sigh)!

    ReplyDelete
  49. That was hands down the best letter!! :)

    Stopping by from SITS. So farking glad I did.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Oh my, take that George, consider yourself told. Hey I need a letter done like that fancy writing one for me? Loved it!

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh Lilly! Poor George... Sigh... He will be heart broken. Where can he possibly meet another Aussie as fabulous as you?

    ReplyDelete
  52. @ Magee - why thank you Ma'am

    @ Hip Jen - it is painful...for George. I'm cool with it, lol!

    @ The Grandpa - oh your letter would be great I am sure, thanks for dropping by. You may have sparked an idea.

    @ Mind of a Mom - yes he is a bastard a lovable one to be sure but he just had to go. Life goes on. Ha!

    @ Sheilia - why thank you sweetie, I dont mind being a hoot, even though George of course is a hound..c'est la vie.

    @ Paris - good, I am glad. That alone is worth writing ridiculous things if it makes the corners of your mouth turn upwards. Love you.

    @ Joanie - I am off to google Barry Cowsill - cant imagine a hearthrob called that.

    @ Something - glad it made you smile.

    @ Rene - great idea - love letters to ourselves - now that woud be harder than doing them for someone else I think.

    ReplyDelete
  53. This has to rank as on of the best posts EVER! I loved it from start to finish ... George doesn't know what he's missing .. me thinks!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Poor George...I bet he grows out his back hair, stops clipping his toenails...and refuses to do another personal appearance. You may have just reduced the poor man to being the next "has been" in Hollywood. But you're right...it's time for him to move on. You deserve better than him!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hey Lilly, I just saw George on Robertson at The Ivy in California. Poor soul, he was crying in his soup..."Lilly, Lilly, come back to me Lilly." I don't know if he's going to make it :)

  58. @ Fida - oh thank you for the poem that is truly wonderful!

    @ Helene - thank you for you comment.

    @ Matt - thats true - if we
    focused on other things maybe the world would change as a result.

    @ Introspection - yep nothing like being humiliated on a blog, oh ooops I do that to myself every time I post lol!!

    @ Sonya - chop? well if I lived closer to him it would have been a karate chop to the head....thanks for dropping by.

    @ Julie - I know this is hard to contemplate but NO Hugh does not do it for me as gorgeous as he is. As Braja quite rightly points out he actually has an older more mature wife too who always gets a caning in the press because he is a normal woman not a barbie doll. No think that man has his head screwed on.

    @ yellowdong granny - he is yours....and no doubt a lot of other peoples too.

    @ sarah lulu - well go do it an just change his name on your blog lol!!

    @ Polly - thank you I think I am a touch sarcastic but I inherited the ability to laugh at myself from my father Des. He has written a couple of posts for me.

    @ Ladyfi - oh no I hope not - George is a personal choice after all.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Despite all Lilly I think you should give George just one more chance. He IS very dishy ...

  62. Hi Lilly,

    Your blog looks amazing! I'm so glad you left me a comment and I can see it is going to take me a while to check out what you have on here. Should be fun.

  63. Hi Lilly, you have such a way with words, you must be hilarious at parties-FANTASTIC Lilly! I shouldn't pretend, I 'do' believe you met and got together with the 'gorgeous George'. Since you are oops 'were' bosom buddies I won't need to tell you about the time he spent with me in Royal Suite 'ahem'in Edinburgh at 'The President' 18 years ago - what a whale of a time that was! I notice you didn't let on about his tattoo - shhhhh.. never let it get out Lilly, his reputation would be ruined. I have vowed not to tell either!

    I sooo wish we had met when you were in the land of the Tartan - we would have had a ball! and exchanged stories hehehe.. Oh Boy!

    Cheers for now, Love Kate x.

    ReplyDelete
  64. @ Braja - no Hugh bless him has a lovely wife and I like a man thats not ashamed to be seen with a woman of his vintage!

    @ Dawnie - you out of anyone could do that.

    @ Shelia - good advice as always, I'll put him on ice.

    @ Jlo - aw hope you are gong ok with that book editing!

    @ Joanna - thanks for the biff to George.

    @ Summer - yes, time to move on lol!

    @ Mark - thanks for dropping by and I appreciate your comments.

    @ Cleo - thanks for your comment. Appreciate it coming from you.

    @ CathM - you will write such a beautiful letter too with your poetic abilities.

    @ Rambler - thanks for your comment.

    @ Tahlia - of course I will.

    @ Kay - lol, I am sure he will survive.

    @ Helen - thank you that was sweet.

    @ Nikkicrumpet - grows his own back hair wah wah!!

    @ TheChicGeek - that pleases me strangely - thanks for the hot tip, keep the sightings coming!!! HA HA HA

    @ Stefan - thank you, and TheChicGeek is indeed a fantastic roving reporter.

    @ June - no second chances for him and didnt you see his picture he is looking not so hot anymore!

    @ Eaton - welcome, thanks for dropping by and for your comment.

    @ Kate - bless you Kate. Its true what great laughs we would have had - well you never know I will probably make it back to see friends there one day soon enough.

  65. Hahahah I so enjoyed this Lily!

    I am sure George would be saddened by this but let's hope he would understand it nnow!

    Thanks for dropping by my new -old site;) It's actually the original blog I had when we first met. Oh jeez time certainly flies bu huh.

  72. Aw, but you two looked so happy together.

    I love Valentine's Day. We do special lovey kinds of things. But I do NOT like flowers on that day because they are so ridiculously overpriced. Any other day, though, shower me with flowers.

    ReplyDelete
  73. It's about time you moved out of the way, you HUSSIE! I thought it was you getting the sloppy seconds, but I wasn't sure until now. He's ALL MINE now.

  74. Lilly, Lilly, Lilly ... it was time, honey. He does NOT DESERVE YOUR UNEQUIVOCABLE LOVE! And plus you won't have to shave your legs as much. ;)

    See! It just goes to show you that true love stems from the heart & who you are inside, although being cute helps *hook the one*! In the long run, it's about character. Most of my hollywood boyfriends seem to be going crazy these days but my hubby is static. Like Mel Gibson & Nicholas Cage - don't they seem like they are living in a different realm other than earth now??? Maybe I am just getting wiser in my old age... Maybe I've had too much coffee this morning!

    *Luv* your blog, missy! And I've copied your @"youknow", if that's okay.

  76. had to come back to write a comment, I was laughing so hard I couldn't type. You are simply too funny Lilly.

    No I won't be writing any letters this Valentines day. I haven't written a love letter in years. Hmm perhaps I should though!

    ReplyDelete
  77. Hi Lilly! I am sure George is heartbroken and it will be a long time before he gets over you. Did you know he is from my state of Kentucky?? Maybe, you have even met him here on one of his many trips home! I am so glad to be back in the blogging world and visiting with all my friends again. It is great fun seeing what you all have been doing. Thank you so much for your kind comments and concern during the ice storm. The only ice I want to see from now on is in my refrigerator!

  78. @ le - lol alright and how delusional am I?

    @ Julie - sory mine are too long to catch up with - have to do something about that sometime....

    @ Teri - good on you - I love flowers truly love them.

    @ For Myself - what are you saying? Are you a waitress per chance with some kind of European background? Well he is yours!! LOL

    @ JULS - yes its true its whats inside that counts. Mel, Nicholas oh gosh yes. Who'd want a life with anyone from Hollywood it must be horrifically strange. Although Mel is still married to his Aussie nurse. You can borrow any thing you like, George included!!

    @ Margaret - you just reminded me why I am so verbose. I just cant get to the point. All I needed to say in the letter was drop dead George!!! Thanks for the tip.

    @ Eric - WRITE THAT LETTER EVEN IF SHE LAUGHS. SHE WILL TREASURE IT EVEN IF SHE IS NOT THE SOPPY KIND!! YOU HAVE A WEEK GET MOVING!

    @ Judy - hey Judy you are a horse woman. Can you lassoo with a rope?Well next time George is in town, lassoo him for me, tie him up with rope and put him in the barn. He needs an enforced break. Glad you are ok - that would have been frightening.

    ReplyDelete
  79. @ Judy - forgot to say, I have trvelled to so many places with George that Kentucky, New York, Paris and Hell all look the same I am telling you. Maybe I will come back for a visit sometime and see it properly one day. Planes, airports, cabs and cheap motels all look the same lol!

    ReplyDelete
  80. lol Lilly
    haha and you have a response from the man himself...
    I love achy breaky heart but please don't tell anyone ..
    have a cool Sunday Lilly ;)

  82. @ Kim - yes not sure who tipped George to respond or who did his writing for him (he doent do anythign himself) but ah well....nice to see you!!

    @ poutylicious - he slept in George's bed did Max - hard to kind of believe isnt it? A 230lb pig?

  83. Hi sweet Lillyness! Oh, Chloe Dawn thanks you so much for coming to visit her. She says to tell you she knows George because she watches his movies on TV! She thinks you could do better too! lol
    Be a sweetie,

    ReplyDelete
  84. I can't believe you met George Clooney! He is timeless, like Cary Grant.

    But he should grow up. Or at least get another pig, I miss Max.

    ReplyDelete
  85. George has changed and he just isn't looking as Hot as he used to look. And my friend Elieen's "Gay" rumors are starting to make me think. Course Perez hasn't called him out on it, so that is odd. Unless Perez is his true love.

    I like the idea of a love letter. I tell my husband all the time, that is all I want as a gift, but he laughs at me. So maybe I will give him one, so he can take the hint.

    ReplyDelete
  86. @ Wheresmyangel - interesting twist on it - Perez and George - who would have thought. Do the letter its a great idea.

    ReplyDelete
  87. hahaha.... *wipes tears from eye*
    I used to love George. He was so good-looking, but now ...sigh.
    I'm over him too.

    ReplyDelete
  88. @ Shelia - Chloe Dawn is a sweetheart, too cute.

    @ Katie - mmm yes I did when he wasnt really famous at all. He was a rather late bloomer in the film business really. I guess he is sort of in the Cary Grant vein but current movie stars cannot match the earlier ones particularly the females.

    @ Eastcoastlife - ha ha dont cry I am sure George will not mind ha ha!

  89. I always knew he was a loser.

    ReplyDelete
  92. I have always loved this quote that seems to fit very well with your hilarious post Lilly.

    "There is only one situation that I can think of in which men and women make an effort to read better than they usually do. When they are in love and reading a love letter, they read for all they are worth. They read every word three ways; they read between the lines and in the margins... Then, if never before or after, they read."

  94. Hi Lilly,
    You're sorry to have written this letter, for just the other day, George Clooney was just talking about looking for this woman he had met in 1991. He said that's the reason he hasn't married because all this time he's been looking for that woman. Now I know that, that you're that woman. I wish I should have known sooner about this, then I would have told you so.

    Oh Lilly, that was a fun letter to read. I had a fun time making this comment also. I could sense that you had such fun writing this post.

    I'm glad you're finally getting over George. Perhaps, someone real will have a chance at capturing your heart now? Hee, hee.

  95. @ Vodka Mom - no I have to confess to being the loser here to ever feel the way I did about him ha ha

    @ Julie - yes tongue in cheek humor to some BS to others and ridciulous to my mother, lol!!! Thanks for dropping by.

    @ MsRay - right and I expect you're the little waitress that all my Californian blogger friends have been telling me about.....thanks for dropping by and I expect to see your pics in magazines soon then.

    @ Betty - tag? um not a handbag no............

  98. So cute lilly...and so long Georgie boy!

    Lilly are the fires far away from you? Stay safe they looked very bad on tv!

  99. Hi Peggy, the fires are away from me and it is atrocious because they may have been deliberately lit. I feel for these people becaue my suburb was just about razed to the ground my bushfires in 2003. I will post some pictures later today. Sad thing when natures hits like that (assuming it didnt get a helping hand of course)- whole families wiped out just like that. Thanks for your comment and hope you are doing well!

  100. Oh, Lilly, you're a riot!

    I believe I am going to write a love letter, or perhaps a poem, to my beloved for Valentine's Day. We're both writers, so it's quite fitting. I've always hated this bloody holiday, but this year it's all different... Yay!

  103. Hey Henry, well I do know how you feel. Kylie almost does it for me even though I am not that way inclined. She is the cutest even at 40. Thanks for your good wishes by the way. Horrific stories are going to emerge and its not going to be so pretty but we Aussies are tough and we will look after each other.
