Can you even imagine a better scenario for Dog while we’re away from home? I mean, my GOD. Seriously. I am so thankful for Valria and her amazing generosity and the clearly superior lifestyle she has provided for Dog, goddamn.

In other news, I have almost no news, really. Things have been enjoyable and mild and the hours are just flying by, and it’s apparent to me that I am about a thousand million times happier with other people around while staying at home with the boys. I mean, that’s sort of a no-shitter, and yet it’s been a surprise, this visit, how entirely pleasant it’s been. Except for the tines-up utensils in the dishwasher, which ARE YOU KIDDING COME ON DO YOU WANT TO FUCKING STAB YOUR HAND-MEAT OR WHAT.

I miss talking to you and I miss hearing from you. So can we play a game, just so I have an excuse to hear from you: tell me, who are your all-time top movie crushes?

Here are mine:

• Ed Harris, as his character in The Abyss (the ring-being-caught-in-the-door scene in that movie is the very reason JB has a titanium wedding ring)
• Johnny Depp, especially in the first Pirates of the Caribbean movie
• Nicolas Cage in Wild At Heart

Your turn!

    *Cusack in High Fidelity
    *Matt Damon in the Bourne flicks
    *Hugh Grant, particularly Four Weddings but I’m not picky!
    *Jude Law in The Holiday (normally he kind of creeps me out, but the scenes with his “daughters” in The Holiday? Best!)
    *Matthew McConaughey in…well, anything he’s ever done! *swoon*

    Robert Redford – The Great Gabsy and The Way We Were

  3. alli on April 17th, 2008 4:29 am

    I have dreams about Zach Braff and kind of obsess about the next time I can see him on Scrubs. I could watch him seven times a day, eight on Thursdays, but I’m seeking therapy for my obsession.

  4. Frema on April 17th, 2008 4:41 am

    In staying true to your “movie-star” crush requests, we have:

    Bill Pullman in While You Were Sleeping (Don’t judge me)

    Ethan Hawke in Reality Bites (No one can eat 50 eggs0

    Tom Cruise in Jerry Maguire

    Robert Downey, Jr. in Soapdish (Anyone?)

    Edward Norton in anything, but most recently The Painted Veil

    My very first crushes include Sean Astin from The Goonies and Eddie Furlong from Terminator 2. I had a poster of Eddie pasted to my hamper. Swoon.

  5. allison on April 17th, 2008 4:58 am

    Here are mine… in no particular order

    1. Mark Ruffalo
    2. Joaquin Phoenix (particularly in Walk the line, but also in Signs and the Village… and that firefighter movie)
    3. Robert Downey Jr. in Only you (and in Home for the Holidays, he played a gay man, but was so charming and funny and sweet… I still crushed on him)
    4. Brad pitt in the Ocean’s 11/12/whatever movies
    5. Campbell Scott in Dying Young
    6. Db Sweeney in the cutting edge
    and of course
    7. Patrick Swayze in Dirty Dancing. He was my first movie star crush I do believe… and the reason I spent over 2 thousand dollars on ballroom dance lessons when I was 19.

  6. Blythe on April 17th, 2008 5:48 am

    1. James McAvoy in The Last King of Scotland
    2. Jeff Goldblum in Independence Day (particularly when he swaggers across the desert in the jumpsuit – do not ask me why)
    3. Alan Rickman (the hell? but yes)
    4. Paul Rudd – in fact Paul Rudd should be up there in the #1 spot because I am in danger of becoming his stalker
    5. David Duchovny (MULDER!)
    6. Spike from Buffy (not James Marsters, just Spike)
    7. I think it goes without saying that Johnny Depp, John Cusack, and Hugh Grant also live in my fantasy life.
    8. Bradley Whitford in The West Wing
    9. Paul Newman in everything, always

    Okay–I am going to dare to be different…
    Dolly Parton–Best Little Whorehouse in Texas; 9-5
    Julie Andrews–Princess Diaries (I & II)–okay not the best movies, but she is hot!
    Doris Day–just about anything
    Maureen O’Hara–Parent Trap (the original)

    I can’t believe I just did this….oh, the freedom!!! :)

  10. Jen W. on April 17th, 2008 10:06 am

    -Gerard Butler in 300 (the abs, OH the abs)
    -Daniel Craig in Layer Cake (if you haven’t seen the movie, get it now)
    -David Morse in The Green Mile (why? I don’t know. I think it’s the eyes and gentle demeanor)
    -Christian Bale in anything

    By the way, the photo of Dog asleep in that chair is so priceless. He looks utterly worn out. :)

  11. Tamara on April 17th, 2008 10:24 am

    Denzel Washington – Man on Fire.

    Ryan Reynolds in that Blade movie, I believe it was Blade Eleventy

    Eric Bana in Troy.

    Casey Affleck in Gone, Baby Gone

    And the most embarrassing for me – Russell Crowe in Gladiator.

  12. Jaime on April 17th, 2008 10:35 am

    Sorry, I’m late to the game and most of mine have been listed already…

    Christian Bale-in anything.
    Hugh Grant-4 Weddings and Lovwe Actually Orlando Bloom-Pirates
    Johnny Depp-Ditto
    Eric Bana-Troy
    Alan Rickman-even thought he’s 25 years older than me…
    Jason Statham-yum.

    But one that I’ve really come to like in recent years in Cillian Murphy from 28 Days Later, Red Eye and Batman Begins. There’s just something about him…

  13. lydia on April 17th, 2008 11:42 am

    olivier martinez – the horseman on the roof
    gael garcia bernal – y tu mama tambien
    joaquin phoenix – quills
    ralph fiennes – the english patient (before the crash!)
    james mcavoy – atonement
    gerard butler – 300 (those thighs! that chest!)
    johnny depp – the man who cried, chocolat, and everything else he ever did

    i guess i have a thing for dark, brooding, mysterious, romantic, slightly tortured foreign guys with accents – i married one!

  14. Katherine on April 17th, 2008 12:17 pm

    Wow, is it just me or am I seeing a total absence of Denzel? That man is FUH-INE.

  15. Bitter Betty on April 17th, 2008 12:34 pm

    Sigh. It’s such a long list, I’ll try to cut it down.

    Patrick Dempsy – who knew?

    Clooney, of course.

    I’d like to lick Johnny Depp clean.

    And I have it bad for Ryan Reynolds. If you look beyond the atrociousness of this movie and concetrate on him you’ll see what I’m talking about.

  16. Angie on April 17th, 2008 12:42 pm

    Lots of votes for Alan Rickman, gotta say I never paid much attention until… Severus Snape! Yeah! And I prefer Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) over Daniel Radcliff, and also those guys who play his hot twin brothers.

    Val Kilmer in Real Genius

    Kyle McLachlan in Twin Peaks

    Alan Alda in The Mephisto Waltz

  17. Kerri on April 17th, 2008 1:22 pm

    Nicholas Cage in Moonstruck. This one is weird, but BOTH Bill Paxton and Gary Sinise in Appollo 13… Johnny Depp in Pirates of the Caribbean, I agree (WHAT IS IT?)… Brad Pitt in Thelma and Louise… Ed Norton in Fight Club… Benicio Del Toro in, well, anything.

  18. Bianca on April 17th, 2008 1:32 pm

    Johnny Depp in anything except Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, but most especially in Sleepy Hollow.
    Clive Owen – He was such a bastard in Closer, but I still would have made out with him.
    Joaquin Phoenix in Quills. Yes, I know he plays a priest. But he plays a HOT priest!
    Alan Rickman and his voice.
    Colin Firth in Bridget Jones
    Ewan McGregor, but not in Star Wars
    Jude Law, forever and ever
    Jake Gyllenhaal
    John Krasinski
    Matthew McFadyen as Mr. Darcy from the Pride and Prejudice with Kiera Knightley…..oh, his eyes!
    Christian Bale, especially in Newsies
    Antonio Banderas, but only as the vampire Armand in Interview with the Vampire
    John C. McGinley as Dr. Cox on Scrubs. Most emphatically. I love smart, sarcastic men.
    Edward Norton, but not in everything he’s ever done.
    Judd Nelson only in the Breakfast Club.
    Eric Dane of Grey’s Anatomy. He looks like he was chiseled from marble.
    David Bowie in Labyrinth. Yes. This is an OLD crush.

    And I’m straight as an arrow, but I would consider swinging the other way for these women:

    Jessica Alba, especially in Sin City
    Jessica Simpson, especially in Dukes of Hazzard
    Michelle Pfeiffer, especially in Ladyhawke
    Jane Seymour, especially in Somewhere In Time

    And my childhood cartoon crush was Peter Pan. Disney Peter Pan.

  19. Kerri on April 17th, 2008 1:37 pm

    AHHH! And Jon Cryer in Pretty In Pink. That’s an early one y’all. I’m kind of sad about where he is now, but whatever. Ducky 4Eva!

    I had a Humphrey Bogart pillow and fantasized that he would show up at my house.
    I also forgot Joaquin Phoenix in “Walk the Line”

  21. Heather on April 17th, 2008 11:15 pm

    Here’s my list…

    1) Jared Leto, especially in “Basil” but dang he is yummy in just about every movie he’s done (well except for Prefontaine).

    2) Gabriel Byrne in “Little Women” (1994)

    3) Christian Bale in “Newsies” & “Little Women” (1994)

    4) Colin Firth in “The Importance of Being Earnest” & “Pride & Predujuice”

    5) Mark Ruffalo in “We Don’t Live Here Anymore” & “Just Like Heaven”

    6) John Hannah in “Sliding Doors”

    So mine are:

    1. Mark Ruffalo
    2. John Cusack
    3. Aiden from Sex in the City
    4. Burger from Sex in the City
    I watch too much Sex in the City
    5. Ryan Reynolds

  24. Amy on April 18th, 2008 10:23 am

    Uh, Will Smith. I cannot hear “Summertime” without swooning. I mean, seriously, honestly swooning. In fact, I think I need to turn on the itunes right now . . .

  25. Valerie on April 19th, 2008 2:46 pm

    Just a partial list. I had my first movie star crush at a very early age….

    Kurt Russell in the Disney movies
    Robert DeNiro
    Malcolmn McDowell
    Christopher Walken
    Tim Roth
    Ralph Fiennes
    Greg Wise (Sense & Sensibility)

    I am currently in love with Tim Burton. I am not kidding. I can stare at this picture for hours:

    Oooh, and I will tell anyone who will listen that in the mid 80’s I saw George Clooney in a play. It was in a tiny theater (I was 2 feet away from him) and he had a bit part, but he was sooo freakin’ beautiful I knew he’d be famous some day.

    School-Age Me says Nic Cage in Valley Girl, Jon Cusack in Say Anything, Cary Elwes in the Princess Bride Sting in Dune, Gary Oldman in Sid and Nancy.

    Grownup Me tells School-Age me to grow up and get myself into an Ed Norton/Brad Pitt Fight Club Sandwich, Val Kilmer in The Doors (yum) or at bare minimum a little Jonathan Rhys Myers in Match Point appetizer.

    But sadly, Postpartum Me probably has to settle for fat Val Kilmer in something that went straight to video.

  27. Mom101 on April 19th, 2008 5:56 pm

    Whoops, that’s me up there, drunk and not filling in the form right. See, Val Kilmer is already a bad influence.

  28. Blythe on April 20th, 2008 3:00 am

    OH yes. Ducky in Pretty in Pink.

    And Charlize Theron in that Dior ad where she rips off her earrings and her gown.

  29. Bill on April 22nd, 2008 7:59 am

    I was just passing through, but couldn’t help but leave a couple of my own crushes:

    Susan Sarandon in Bull Durham.

    Maggie Gyllenhaal in Secretary (I’m not much into either S&M or B&D, but this is just a fun movie–and in a scene near the end of the movie, when she has come to terms with who/what she’s all about, she’s getting her butt reddened. If the expression on her face could be bottled and sold, everybody would be blissed out.


    Meryl Streep, The Devil Wears Prada, Silkwood.

    Scarlett Johanson.

    Boy, am I all over the place, or what???

    We should be glad a Republican can actually win a safe Democrat seat in the Senate. But, we should remember that this race is anomalous in several ways that dont include the repudiation of the regressive Communist agenda of the Democrat party. True, it is telling that Obama cannot go to Massachusetts to campaign for Coakley because they fear that his presence could hurt more than it would help. This would be the real step forward as far as eliminating the Communist threat. However, other Republican candidates wont be so lucky where the weakness of their opponent and the distractions of Haiti and the health bill abate.
