  1. Been watching SVU off an on for years -- had no idea Mariska Hargitay was Jayne Mansfield's daughter.

    They say we learn something new every day, and this qualifies as my new fact, which pretty much means I can spend the rest of the day relaxing.

  2. Mariska is so beautiful. She has gorgeous eyes. And a smile more beautiful universe. Beautiful like her mama.

  3. a day without SVU is like a day without something really important!

  4. Mariska is the only woman in the world that I envy. Because she is not only beautiful. I wish I had your strength, your courage, your determination. I wanted to be able to face the world and makes it better. He knew how to do this. Maybe one day I'll get there.

    Sorry my english.
