Twittered, not stirred

(Alternate title: "This never happened to the other fellow")

First the back story:

One of the coolest people to follow on Twitter is in fact Roger Ebert. He is really into a lot of surprising and interesting stuff. Case in point: Today he re-Tweeted something from a Twitter user with the handle @georgelazenby.

That brought me up short. Is the star of "On Her Majesty's Secret Service" on Twitter? Quick Google check: Lazenby was born in 1939 and apparently still going out there. But this person's Twitter page gives no hint if it's that Lazenby (although he -- if it's really him -- is in turn following such figures as Oliver Sachs and Tom Waits -- if it's really them).

(In any case, it's well confirmed that @ebertchicago is definitely film critic Roger Ebert. So there's that certainty, at least.)

Anyway, in the process of looking at @georgelazenby's home Twitter page to see if he might be the genuine article, I came across this observation, which he sent out late last night:

The only guaranteed result of having an affair is to add yet another disapproving woman to you life.

So, what I'm saying is, that could be a guy who once played James Bond.
