Falling In Love in Thailand

Over the years I’ve lost count of the number of times I’ve fallen in love. The first man I can actually remember falling in love with was Big Ears, he was just so adorable, then of course came along Rhett Butler who swept me off my feet and after him, well… the list goes on.

Last year we went to Thailand and landed up watching ‘Law and Order: Criminal Intent’ there on late night TV. It was the first time I saw Detective Goren. It was love at first sight even though I didn’t realise it. Back here in India Law and Order is aired on FoxCrime and I haven’t missed an episode.

There’s something about Robert Goren that makes him a man of intrigue to me. He’s complex with a mind that is constantly surprising me, he’s unpredictable, obessive, intelligent, has these strange cute quirks like cocking his head when interrogating a suspect and he’s good looking too! What more could I ask for 😀

If you’re asking who’s Detective Goren, here’s a little bit about him.
Detective Robert ‘Bobby’ Goren is played by Vincent D’Onofrio in the television series Law and Order: Criminal Intent. The show ran from 2001 to 2011 with Goren in 141 episodes of the 10 seasons aired. Goren is a detective investigator first grade for the Major Case Squad of NYPD and his partner is Det. Alexandra Eames.

I figured I should get to know the man better, so, here’s 13 things I didn’t know about Detective Goren…

1. Robert O. Goren was born on August 20, 1961, and grew up in the Canarsie neighborhood of Brooklyn.
