That's Why They Call Them Crushes...



Today is Reveal Your Blog Crush Day, a concept conceived by two of my favorite chicks in blogdom, Ms Sizzle and The Ramblin' Sandra. On this day, bloggers from all over are revealing their crushes in the blogosphere. I'm late to the big reveal. It was a hellish day, which I will bitch about later. Right now I just want some wine and to not back out of my commitment to admit to my crush. The problem is, I have a few. That should really be no surprise to anyone, as most of you know I'm incredibly fickle. But let me make something clear, I do not necessarily want to have sex with any of these people...errr...bloggers. I just enjoy their writing and look forward to seeing what they have to say. But then again, sex could be an option if they weren't married. Or geographically undesirable. Or if they were actually human. Or if I actually knew what they looked like. Just remember, if you aren't listed here, that doesn't mean I don't crush on you. I may be too embarrassed to reveal my true lascivious feelings in the open.

  1. Rich of G3T Films: Not only is he a talented filmmaker, but he lives in my favorite city in my favorite country. We both have had disturbing windpipe injuries, and have both considered murdering our brothers. The 10,000 mile distance only adds to his allure, as there is no chance of ever actually meeting him at some ridiculous blogger convention.

  2. Danny of Jew Eat Yet?: I have only just discovered Danny of Jew Eat Yet? His writing is brilliant, his Jewishness hilarious, and his love and pride for his daughter makes my ovaries ache. After finding out that we both spent the same weekend with miserable colds watching That Girl on TV Land, how could I not crush on him?

  3. Todd of Death Wore A Feathered Mullet: Todd has been with me since my first week of blogging. He started out sweet and nice and even a little flirty, but then he discovered a certain word, and all hell broke loose. That's when my crush began. Any man who can use the C word as a noun, verb, adjective, and adverb - without being the least bit offensive - is my kind of guy. Too bad he doesn't have a blogroll.

  4. Michael of Skinny Legs and All : Even though he ran off and got married (to someone else!) without telling me, I still adore him. He is full of political righteousness, but is never insulting or belittling. He is more aware of world events than most broadcast news anchors. He is a well-traveled, successful, smart, true blue New Yorker who loves Italy as much as I do. And he is a true gentleman as well. Call me when your marriage falls apart! I wish you well in your future!

  5. Billy of Living the Romantic Comedy: Not only is Billy a published author and well-known screenwriter, but he is my new favorite film critic as well. I was truly floored and beyond flattered when I discovered he had linked me on his blog. And I do think, as he does, that he and I are married in some alternate universe. I'm sure he got me a beautiful ring.

And no list of mine would be complete without special mention of Monkey of Monkey's Deep Thoughts: Come on. Look at that fine face! Drink in his mind boggling movies! Listen to that velvety voice! Check out his humongous hoo-hah! I dare you not to fall in love with the Monkey. And Purple ain't so bad either.

There are others, but I don't want to look too slutty.

Shut up.

This is the biggest honor bestowed upon me since, well...it's the only honor ever bestowed upon me. Thanks, sweetness.

Kris said...

These are hot picks. Can I click on the links? Or does that make it sloppy seconds?

Sizzle said...

yay new links! new crushworthies!

thanks for participating. ;)

G3T Films said...

I am sitting naked in a sundrenched rose garden, warm skin smelling of strawberries, while eating large black grapes off the vine. This I do in celebration of making an honoured list such as this. And cause its a little kinky, what with all those Japanese tourists taking photos and wot-not.

The real me said...

There are no women on that list??!

Monkey said...

Awww! I have a crush on you too.

And I've always had a little crush on Todd too, since we're revealing secret blog crushes.

The real me said...

I've tried to post this about 5 times...

There are no women on that list!

The real me said...

See, I'm secretly hoping to be Brooke's crush... maybe stalker would be more like it.

sandra said...

Yay! Some new ones to check out.

Kris said...

wait, there are no women on this list?

I'm just kidding!!!! ;)

(and yep, home blogging on a saturday evening. just the image of a wino you had in your head, wasn't it?)

Calzone said...

Wait a minute. Rich told me he was gay. Well he didn't tell me as much as show me.

Tits McGee said...

I love you when you look too slutty.

Dan-E said...

you don't look slutty at all.

you just look like a giant whore. (and i mean that in a good way.)

Flounder said...

I'm not offended.

Really, I'm not.

Spinning Girl said...

So fabu.

How about "Bloggers I Would Dry Hump Day"?

You're on my list.

mernitman said...

I crush you back bigtime! Please accept a big fat cybernetic pre-holiday hug in lieu of alternate universe rings (for now)!!!

Danny said...

I am verklempt, Brooke, thanks! I'm so glad that I finally found your blog after hearing about you from Neil for so long. When I try to picture you, I can only see Marlo Thomas in "That Girl." Close?

sleepydog said...

Brooke - You are my original blog crush. All subsequent blog crushes have paled in comparison to you, my very first blog crush.

Egan said...

Awesome list chica. Kris, keep it down.

Hypersonic said...

I can only assume that you have the secret hots for me ( as I didn't make the list) the alternative would drive me to suicide.

miss kendra said...

my crushes all turn out to be gay.

American Navel said...

brooke: Hypothetically, if I had done this crush thing, you just might have been on my list. :)

thephoenixnyc said...

Awww, Brooklina. I am honored. Had you only come up here sooner. Two proud Jersey natives reveling in our Jerseyness.

MUAH!!!

Brookelina said...

It's about time all my crushes commented. Sheesh.

Neil said...

I wish I still I had a crush on you. It's hard to say you have a crush on someone once it turns to animal lust.

jiggs said...

whoops. I accidentally commented as my creepier alter ego.

Sheets said...

The fact that I'm not on the list is surely an oversight.

Unless its because I was going on the 'Bloggers I Would Dry Hump' list.....

Hmmm.....
