James May- Pies, Ales and Bentleys
It's 1am in Australia and that means....

He can fly a plane.

He can shoot a gun.

He can ride a motorcycle.

He can play a piano.

He can make beer and gin.

He can do woodwork.

And hard sums.

He swam with sharks and has been to the moon (nearly). Talked to robots, worn a rocket pack, flown a caravan airship, built giant lego houses and made entire gardens made of plasticine.

He likes pies, ladies, planes, beer and model train sets.

Ladies and Gentleman...if there's anything James May cannot do, it's only because he's not interested!

(Except going back in time, but we're working on that *builds Tardis* and anyway James knows that it was actually quite rubbish back then so you might as well stay home and just pretend it's 1943. At least then you can go watch the telly when you're done.)









(Rather than having a spam fest I just posted pics of the way I love my James- scruffy and dorky and grinning like a pillock. All these pictures make me go thumpy thump in my heart. Show me your James!)

What I'd like to see in the comments are things you'd say if you were slightly drunk and it was your turn to toast. We're all sitting in James' local and he's hammered as a monkey in the corner, red-cheeked and giggling while we take turns telling him how much we love him- and WHY. And post your favourite pics, and just generally rant on his loveliness.

Here's what I say:

James- in the very short time that I have known you, you have turned my life around. I know that sounds all very dramatic and what-have-you but it' ture, I was a depressed woman before you came along, then you reminded me what amazing things there are in the world, and how people are out there doing them. You reminded me of things I love like sheds and pies and old Rolls Royces. You've given me spirit to get up off my arse and go outside and see what's going on.

Also you are mind-numbingly handsome. Even when you're tired, sweaty, cranky...you're still gorgeous. I don't think it's presumptuous of me to declare you the most attractive man in the universe. The truth is never presumptuous.

Anyway- happy birthday to you. I can't think of anything worth celebrating more than the fact that you're in our lives.

We love you James, and if we were all in a room we'd be climbing all over each other trying to prove who loves you more. I bet you'd like that. &hearts

Lastly, I don't think I can launch this post without embedding what is probably THE definitive James May 'I love you.'

Ok my 2 cents worth..

James, mate, I àm going to be all dramatic about this because that's just me.

When I first watched a Top Gear episode in June 2009, I was a bit depressed and in need of some genuinely funny things in my life. Top Gear has provided this, and I kept on watching it. After a few episodes, I realized I wasn't watching purely for the humour anymore. I was watching because of you. And the humour. And the cars. And you. Mostly you.

Let's just have this drink, yes?


OKIDOKI!! Picture time!! 8D

(I actually do this with my pinkie finger too when I pick up a mug or something XD)

..I think those are my favourites..

OH that last one...! *fans self*

I've never seen that one of him sitting on the motorbike, it's so cute! That's a Beavis and Butthead tshirt though, isn't it...Goddamnit James. Oh well, there's bound to be ONE thing you like that I hate. :D
15th-Jan-2010 06:48 pm (UTC)
Ah it's still 6:30pm here! Never the less here goes my loving speach:

James, you're bloody briliant. I honestly love you and I know always will. This may sound a bit odd but more than anything or anyone else in the entire world you're the one who can cheer me up when I'm down. You're perfect in every way even, and perhaps especially, in the ways in which some people would think you are flawed (your hair, your jumpers, your geekiness- I love all of that so so much!) You truely are an amazing person. Oh and did I mention that you're the most gorgeous and sexy man ever to have lived? No? Well you are! Happy birthday, I hope it's as amazing as you are!


16th-Jan-2010 02:44 am (UTC)
Hooray! All true words.

And homfg tummy!James. When I saw that, my ovaries literally blew up.
15th-Jan-2010 09:21 pm (UTC)
To be honest James, I think you are my biggest hero and the very reason why I became who I am today. Thank you for just being who you are and happy birthday!
16th-Jan-2010 02:51 am (UTC)
You're right...I think I do see him as a bit of a hero myself. I never really though about it, but that's what I was trying to say- that he's my hero. All those things he's done and seen are amazing, but the added factor that he's made shows about them so he can show other people...it's just wonderful. &hearts

Oh James, happy happy birthday! I can't help but love you - you remind me of my boyfriend. :D
16th-Jan-2010 03:08 am (UTC)
eee! My boyfriend reminds me of James- in fact I only noticed him because he had James-like hair! (He's hot too, but I spotted the hair first and then the rest.)

James, you are the most amazing man in the world and I would love to write your name across the sky, just so everyone else could know about you too. You have a smile that makes me squirm with joy every time I see it. You have eyes that I could gaze into for an eternity.

I love it when you look scruffy, when your hair is windswept and just everything about you. I love it when you start ranting about something, especially the war! Words cannot describe how much I love you. Happy Birthday, James, and I truly wish you all the best in everything that you do. xx

Now, pictures... How can I choose?! These are just a few adorable ones.

I do ADORE scruffy James- studio!James is lovely, but there's no going past the windswept and naturally lit Mr.May.

Rambling!James is love.

Let's all rent a sky writer!!!!!

James, above everything else, is his own person. He dresses how he wants, he has his hair how he wants, he is unashamedly what most would call 'geeky' but what I see as endearing, he is intelligent, he has the most contagious laugh I've heard from anyone, he's witty and funny, and of course, he's gorgeous.

Before I started watching Top Gear, I would never have looked twice at a man who is in his 40's with scruffy greying hair and who wears the most outlandish shirts ever made. I liked the three boys immediately, and was the first to jump at their defence when ever anyone said anything negative about them. I like James' hair, and I like those outlandish floral shirts.

James doesn't care about what other people think, and I think that's utterly fantastic. He has a wonderful personality, and such infectious enthusiasm about everything. I've watched many of his other shows - Big Ideas, Wine Adventures, James May on the Moon - and am always fascinated with what he has to say. You can tell he's not just parroting out facts, but he's actually interested in the subject.

What I love most about the three of them is their personalities. That's what I noticed first and foremost about them. In the Bolivia special especially, I tended to get a bit... emotional, you could say, whenever their lives appeared to be in peril. Then when they triumphantly reached the other side of the mountain, and were sitting around the campfire, I just had to say to anyone in the room what I thought.

They were sitting there on old camping chairs, their hair scruffy and matted, their clothes filthy, covered in dirt and muddy water and whatever the jungle could throw at them, they hadn't washed in days and hadn't shaved in days either. But as I said to whoever was listening, I friggin' adore them.

And that, frankly, sums it up. On with the pictures. :D

I'm going to Top Gear Live in Sydney and Auckland next month, with James and Jeremy going to both shows. I saw Jezza in Sydney with Richard last year, so I'm ecstatic about getting to see James! I really hope he chooses to wear his most outlandish shirts to the show! ♥

"Before I started watching Top Gear, I would never have looked twice at a man who is in his 40's with scruffy greying hair and who wears the most outlandish shirts ever made."

I did. :D Well not the shirts part, but the older men thing has always been there. The first episode I ever saw I watched it and thought 'man this show is funny- and those two tall chaps are HOT.' Then as time went on my love for James streaked ahead, while my love for Jeremy is just at a sensible low-key adoration. (And sexing.) ;)

Yes Richard I love you too. now you've started looking like James

"What ended up happening was - I fell in love. Hard.

At first, I thought, "I am utterly mad. I don't know him; why do I feel like this?" Then I realized that love doesn't always make sense. It just happens. I think I'm ok with that now"

See- this is something I've been meaning to talk about for some time now but I feel like a bit of a dork, but I think the support is in this forum- and especially this post, for me to say it. I am in love with James May more than I've been in love with anyone else. Ever. Properly in love. I'd cut off my arm for him if I had to- and I need my arms. Both of them.

To be honest I think the way society sees falling in love as outdated. In the past you could be seen as a bit of a saddy for loving celebrities when they were just characters on a screen, but we know James fairly well. As much as his on-screen personality is slightly tinkered with, we've seen so much candid moments and read so much from his own hand that we really know him as best as anyone can without actually meeting someone. For all intents and purposes, we have spent time with him. There's no reason why we can't be properly in love with him. And just from reading the comments here it's clear that he's helped so many of us out in dark times, so that's bound to have us fond of him from the get go.

Anyway- yes. It's okay to say you're in love!

"Aviator!James does very funny things to my insides. Unf."

It's the excitement of all those zips and buckles to undo! Activity!James. XD

*raises glass*


While it's true that many of the people here you probably had at 'hello', I can honestly say that you had me at 'Jeremy Clarkson is an arse'. ^_____^

Many happy returns, you amazing, intelligent, witty, and sexy weirdo. ;)

He had me at *runs fingers through hair* :D
