I am feeling a little bit silly today and not able to settle into one of my usual Wednesday posts - so I am going somewhere else. Definitely shouldn't bring tears to anyone's eyes. Perhaps a laugh or two, either at me or with me - your pick!!!
(This should go over really well with Bert - hee hee, but, shhhh, don't tell, there's a surprise for him at the end.)
A few weeks ago my friend Karlyn did a post on her celebrity crushes. It happened shortly after she and I had had a little conversation about the very deserving multi-year recipient of the "Sexiest Man Alive", Mr. Depp. Yes, he was on her list (not in the #1 spot - but, to each their own - hee hee) so that is where I will start:
I was just sixteen when "21 Jump Street" began - such pleasant memories. This is one that has just grown sweeter with time ... Edward Scissorhands, Don Juan De Marco, Chocolat (ahhhhhh) and now Captain Jack Sparrow.
Then came Phil - through one of my favorite adventure shows ever (I would say reality, but I hate to lump such a great show into that genre). The way he can walk and talk at the same time is quite a gift!
Then there's Billy - I actually had a crush on a boy in Jr. High because I heard him playing Billy Joel songs on the piano. Seriously! And then there was that guy in college - yeah, really I did.
And George - please don't ask, but he makes politics so palatable.
Oh Rob, You had me at, "Man, it's a hot one"
Did you need to watch the whole music video??? Yeah, me too:
Next we have Curly, the Cowboy (Hugh Jackman isn't so bad, but my crush is really on Curly from Oklahoma) - I have always loved this musical - there is something so enchanting about a singing cowboy.
Ewan, Ewan, Ewan - I already loved him as the dashing Mr. Churchill in Emma - then he played my all time favorite Star Wars character - Obi Wan - could it get better? Of course, along came Big Fish, probably one of the greatest movies made in the 2000's. If you haven't seen it, it really was a life changing (for the better) kind of movie and Ewan was INCREDIBLE. Then he did a documentary on Polar Bears - you even get to see his wife a few times - and she looks like the nicest, most ordinary person in the world. And my sister told me he motorcycled with a friend through Europe, with a beard! Cool (except for the motorcycle part). So down to earth, so real - how does that happen to a movie star?
Yes, Anthony is my favorite Wiggle!
Any P&P fan will have him on their list - no question.
This crush is new, although I think it is more a crush on the character of Detective Bobby Goran, than for the actor, since I don't even know what his name is.
The Champ - I cried, and I was only 7 years old. This is when I first noticed the little pitter patter of my heart - my very first crush. If I would have known then that he would end up marrying and becoming a Mormon, I probably would have joined his fan club. Oh well!
And then there's Bert - he's really my favorite. And he's totally famous - here he is playing at Taylorsville Days. And he's recorded several albums. And, he's been featured on a televised Benefit concert - TWICE!!! Yeah - he's my favorite, not so innocent, celebrity crush!
