celeb crushes

We all have them.
However unrealistic they may be, there is that one guy or girl that just rings your bell.
I’ve always been partial to light haired, light eyed guys. Built sturdy, but not beefy. I prefer them kind of lanky…almost feline.

When I was a very small girl, my celeb crush was Shaun Cassidy. I loved that Joe Hardy something fierce. I even had a poster of him in my room.

I was not yet in second grade. It was the late 1970s and I thought I knew what was up even then.

When I was a little older it was John Schneider. It was the 1980s and Friday night meant the Dukes of Hazzard! I remember lying on the floor in the living room propped up on pillows watching the Duke boys outwit Roscoe P. Coltrane week after week. He had the most adorable smile AND he was good at archery!

In the 1990s there was a new “blondie” for me to crush on. Not a natural blonde…but that doesn’t really matter.

Oh Spike. My all time favorite vampire baddy.
And he was punk to boot! (As Buffy assures the bouncer, “Billy Idol actually stole the look from him.”)

Now I’m all grown up, so is my celeb crush.

I cant’ even. That thing he does with his lower lip when he’s playing vulnerable. Gah! It gets me every time!
Would I leave YBW if Daniel Craig came knocking?
…no…

I obviously have a type. (What? I’m as much predictable as I am enigma.)
But what’s kind of interesting about my crushes is that I’ve ended up with a real guy who resembles this collection of celebrities.
Light hair. (Well it’s gotten darker as he’s become an adult, but he started out very blonde indeed.)
Blue eyes.
Tall.
Built kind of lanky. (Well, like me he’s porked up a teeny bit in the last few years…I hear that’s what happens when you’re happy.)

When I asked YBW who his number one celeb crush is this is who he told me:
zooey-deschanel-435
Just so you know, Zooey Deschanel and I look absolutely NOTHING alike.
I’m much more Bette Midler in the 1970s. All nose and teeth and frizzy red hair. (But not that much make up.)

(I swear it’s true.)

I’ll get to see my Daniel Craig revise his role as James Bond after we come home from our honeymoon. YBW can watch his Zooey Deschanel play that quirkiest of girls, Jessica Day on New Girl starting again sometime this fall.
We’ll crush on them like crazy.

But I have a real boy to crush on. And he crushes on me. So much so that we’ve decided to get hitched.
I don’t need a poster on my wall. I have the real thing right next to me.
(Yeah, I know…it’s nauseating. I just roll with it.)
