This is the list that doesn't end

I actually made a list of what I was going to blog about today. And lost it. So instead of entertaining/boring you with the details of my day, here is the beginning of the list that InDialect suggested: Top 100 male literary crushes. I haven't even come close to 100, but this is a start. In no particular order:


  1. Benedick (Much Ado about Nothing)
  2. Fitzwilliam Darcy (I'm surprised you even had to ask.)
  3. Buddy Glass (Franny and Zooey; Raise High the Roofbeams, Carpenter)
  4. Zooey Glass (Franny and Zooey)
  5. Thomas Lane (Tam Lin)
  6. Barney Snaith (The Blue Castle)
  7. Gilbert Blythe (Anne of Green Gables books)
  8. Roland Michell (Possession)
  9. Theodore Lawrence (Little Women)
  10. Dan (Little Men; Jo's Boys)
  11. J. Alfred Prufrock
  12. Edward Rochester (Jane Eyre)
  13. Edward Ferras (Sense and Sensibility)
  14. Colonel Brandon (S&S)
  15. Mac (Eight Cousins; Rose in Bloom)
  16. Lord Goring (An Ideal Husband)
  17. Demetrius (A Midsummer Night's Dream)
  18. Rob Gordon (High Fidelity)
  19. The Speaker in "For Esme--with Love and Squalor"

And I'm out. For the night, at least. I know I should have italicized each of the titles, but I'm lazy. And I know there are more than nineteen. Please add your suggestions. I can't promise they'll make the list, but hey--couldn't hurt.

P.S. They aren't in the right order, but Benedick had to be number one. Find eg a Benedick, and you'll find a happy eg.

Rochester? Eew. What about Heathcliff?

J. Alfred Prufrock? That's a bit scary.

Especially since he seems to be the mascot of my life.

Apparently, your blog's clock is set to Pacific time. That was 7:57. Which, no, isn't ideal, but some of us like to get up more than ten minutes before we have to be somewhere.
