Random Tuesday Thoughts: Crushing


If I were Queen of Everything (or even Princess of Quite A Lot), or perhaps an author who gets to see her book made into a movie, here are some actors I wish I could meet.

Colin Firth
Pierce Brosnan
Val Kilmer
Nathan Fillion
Anthony Michael Hall
Jensen Ackles
Zachary Levi
Matthew Morrison

I would worry about being all fan-like and would not probably say very much.  Like, "Hello, Mr. Firth, very nice to meet you."  I wouldn't even remember to say, "I really enjoy your work.  You're very good."  Which is what I'd like to say.

It would be interesting to see how these people act and look IRL.  I know the camera and production makeup can be superkind.  I wonder if it might be a let down, like they look much older than they do on camera.  (well, those that are older)

No, I do not have any famous females listed.  This is my fantasy and I'll meet whomever I want to.  And this is not like that deal on Friends where you pick five celebrities you'd get to sleep with and your partner can't get mad.  Come on, I'm a grown-up!  And probably not any of their types anyway.

Seriously, what is up with my almost 40 year old self?  I suppose this is just fine and normal.

Anyone else coming up on a milestone birthday.  It seems like my 30s was spent with raising toddlers and elementary students.  Now I have a kid who will be in middle school next year.  Am I just wigging out because I'm getting older.  I seriously don't think so.  Because I feel pretty good for an almost forty year old.  It's fun to watch my high school classmates on Facebook hitting the big 4-0 before me.  I'm a summer baby, so I can watch all of them turn the milestone and see how they handle it.  Ignore it, trumpet it, bemoan it, celebrate it.  I'm looking forward to saying, "I'm forty" and having people say, "No way."  That will be cool.

My friends are going to make fun of my celebrity crushes.  Oh, well, I got that out of my system.

The closest I've gotten to Nathan Fillion is Ron Glass (at charity screening of Serenity) and Felicia Day (at a book signing). Day was really cool and oh so obviously a geek (it was at a comic book store). She'd been signing comics and DVDs for 2 hours, looked at the line and asked her assistant how many more people were still in line (she'd reached her agreed upon signing time), said I'll see them all but first I have to pee.

And dude, you won't feel old until that middle schooler is off in college and you hit the big 5-0. Which is sleathily approaching for me. The rat fink.

Jealous that you even got that close to Nathan Fillion. I need to go to some conventions he might be at....

Nathan is hot! I have daydreams about what Hollywood stars call to have lunch with me because they want to talk about how much they love my book... so you're not the only one :)

I'm always afraid to meet people whose work I admire, because what if they turn out to be jerks? Okay, summer baby, what's your birthday? I'm a Leo...August 10th, but I'm a bit past 40. I'll be 48 this year.

Late June, I'm a Cancer (which always sounds so weird to say).
