That's a strange line.

Yes, I did wait for the clock to strike midnight before I began another entry. Yes, I am tired. I seem to have lost my ability to stay up all night.

LadyJane and I were talking about what makes a guy--excuse me, man--attractive. And by considering past (two) boyfriends, crushes, etc., I've realized that I have absolutely no pattern. At least, not as far as body type goes. BF1 was on the skinny side, while BF2 was decidedly not. And my crushes have filled in the rest of the spectrum. My only request now, as far as body type goes, is that he be taller than I am.

I was going to blog about this conversation when it happened. And then there were more important things for me to whine about. But then the conversation started again, elsewhere. What makes a person attractive? And I am now going to be shallow and answer the question.


Nope. Suddenly have no desire to discuss the finer points of hair, attire, grooming, and performance ability. (I will mention that I prefer someone who will critique a performance with me, or at least allow me to critique it.) Instead, I will leave you with my (current) top five movie men. Please note that I'm exhausted and only relying on two brain cells for this list. I just might regret it tomorrow.

1. AJ in Empire Records ("I have to tell Corey I love her by 1:37.")
2. Lloyd Dobler. You know the movie. And yes, he should have been number one. But I don't know how much I want a Lloyd as much as I want someone to watch Lloyd with me. ("I gave her my heart and she gave me a pen.")
3. Lord Goring in An Ideal Husband. ("Lord Goring, you are always trying to tell me what to do. I think it most courageous of you.")
4. Nicholas in Princess Diaries 2. ("You are amazing. I've tried to fight it--I have--but you overwhelm me.") This is where the regrets start.
5. Benedick in Much Ado about Nothing. ("Thou and I are too wise to woo peaceably.")
6. Jonathan in Sliding Doors. ("If you don't drink your fatty drinks, you'll never achieve quality cellulite.")

Okay, I know I said five and that was six. See, I can count. I just often choose not to. Maybe I should add "can and will count" to my list of desirable traits. . .

I own it. When this week's craziness ceases, we should have a movie night.

I can count like nobody's business! I've always said it's my greatest (and sexiest) stength. Once I made it into the imaginary numbers like *leads into Bill Waterson ripoff* eleventy-one, thirty-twelve, twentyteen...
