Let’s talk about me. Just a little more.
~ Aside from the actual relationships I’ve had, I’ve been on a lot of “dates” with various men/boys over the years. (At the moment, I’m not including casual sexual romps in this list of dates.) The problem with me, however, is that during many many of these incidents, I didn’t realize we were on an actual date until later on in the evening when he went to pay for dinner or a movie or tried to make out with me and I found myself in the awkward position of having to “reject” someone with whom I’d honestly never entertained thoughts of romance/sex/etc. You’d think I would’ve learned how to differentiate but then, I didn’t even know my now-husband was into me until the moment he kissed me.
~ I hate Scooby-Doo. Always have. It’s boring, it’s annoying and it don’t make me laugh.
~ I now weigh in lighter than I have in 9 years, since the spring of 2000 when I went on the Atkins Diet and lost 15 lbs in two weeks that immediately came back when I allowed myself more than 15 grams of carbohydrates a day. If I lose another five pounds (which I plan to) I will be the lightest I have been since the 8th freaking grade. (This is all sort of surreal to me as I’ve struggled for over a decade to be rid of this extra baby weight and am now watching it slowly melt away without frantic overexertion like I’m used to.)
~ There are some old guys (over 60) who rank in my Top Ten Sexiest List. However, my Top Ten Sexiest Old Guys List looks like this:
1) DUSTIN FREAKING HOFFMAN
2) Ed Harris
(Gran and I share a little crush on this one. Yum.)
3) Paul Newman circa early 2008.
(I know, I know. He’s not around anymore, but I still think he’s fresh enough to keep on the list, although at #3 instead of #2.)
4) Patrick Stewart
4) David Bowie
(I cheated. It’s a tie for #4.)
5) Morgan Freeman
6) Tom Robbins
(That’s right; I’m such a nerd that writers made my list.)
(Yeah, I was all about Daltrey but the man just didn’t age well.)
8 ) Mark Harmon
(So I’m a typical housewife; so sue me.)
9) Ian McKellen
(I don’t care whose team he plays for. The man’s handsome.)
10) Harrison Ford
(I’m sorry. He’s a cliche but he’s so necessary.)
(Yeah, I never got on the Sean Connery bandwagon. In fact, I think he’s a little overrated. Sorry.)
~ Screw “Wicked Games”, the most turned on I have ever been and continue to be while watching a music video is watching Pelle Almqvist screaming and rocking out in “Hate to Say I Told You So.” Something about a teeny tiny man with a tremendous ego who can scream like a banshee is so freaking hot to me. (And that sexy, exhausted face he makes while keeping the beat during the bass break… oh man.) I still enjoy a good one-handed viewing of that video from time to time.
