boys boys boys

Have I talked at all about the dating situation here at my school?  Well...let's see... the word 'dire' comes to mind.  Along with 'hopeless' and 'nonexistent.'  No, seriously, it's 88% female.  So when my mom and I were walking back from a bar on Saturday night-- which made me feel like kind of a badass, actually, even though it was 8:30 on a Saturday night and the only drink I had was a Shirley Temple, and, oh yeah, I was with my mom-- anyway, we didn't have any boys to talk about.

So we turned to the only dating pool I have left:


Celebrities.


Here are a few options we came up with and our.... varied opinions on them.




Robert Downey Jr.



me:  Ooooh.  He's just scruffy enough and he has those crinkly eye-corners that I like.  And he looks really good in glasses.


Mom:  He's too old, and his face looks too soft.  And on Perez Hilton he was named one of Hollywood's most frequent trouble-makers.  He's a loser.


me:  No he's not, here, I'll show you a picture.  ....aaaaand that's a mugshot.  Anyway.




Eddie Argos


(singer of Art Brut)


Me:   Yes, always, yes, forever.


Mom: Yes.




Jasper Future


(guitar/ "stage craft" of Art Brut)


Me:  What?  No.  That would be like dating Gumby.


Mom:  True.




Kevin Spacey



Me: Adorable.  I've had a crush on him ever since I saw him in K-Pax when I was, like, ten.


Mom:  Adorable, but way too old for you.  And isn't he gay?


Me: DO NOT TELL ME.  I DO NOT WANT TO KNOW.




Darren Criss


Me:  (incoherent babbling)


Mom:  Who?




Zachary Quinto


Me: ...I just really like Vulcans.



...needless to say, I am not getting very far on any of these relationships.


Who are your celebrity crushes?  Yay for comments! (hint, hint)

  1. I'm completely in love with Jensen Ackles. I mean, he got married fairly recently, but that's a SMALL detail....isn't it?

    Joseph Gordon-Levit? 'Nough said.

    And if you don't end up sweeping Robert Downey Jr off his feet, I'll be more than happy to step in. ;)

  2. Lol. K-Pax. Lol.
    Maybe you should take a trip to see Amanda. Her school is 88% male.
    I could see you with Darren Criss.
