    Gavin, you pull off looking devilish/thoughtful/sexy/tender/intimidating/lovable – all within 2 seconds! Complex person, right? Magnetic Man – find that fascinating.
    (“Wanted – reward!”-poster up for the missing dark curls! Loved that look on you.)

    So, I hope you had a great Sunday! I´m sure Monday is “the day after” and Tuesday still time for recovery. Wednesday the day before Thursday = five-o for real, so Mr Friday can have a great time Saturday too! Sweden sends birthday blessings! : )

    This is a great interview. When Gavin speaks of his childhood, I’ve heard myself saying the same exact stuff, and people think I’m a total nutcase because of it!
