My Random Man Crushes are Intellectuals

Having a crush on a person you have never met is, of course, rather silly. The infatuation is based on what we see or hear coming from their mouths, even if they are just well-rehearsed lines. What I find more interesting is people's choices of WHO they crush upon and why.

Joining Keely, The Un-Mom, here are some of my random thoughts on crushes:

While most people (men and women) have crushes on hotties like Brad Pitt, he does nothing for me. Okay, almost nothing.

I tend to fall for really intelligent men who can also be a smartellic.

Take William F Buckley, Jr. I fell for him in is is holding a book and all, but look at that expression.

I used to love his show when he would rip some poor fool apart with his knowledge on a particular subject. This is the look he would make right before the kill:

He really had great body language. Agreeing with a lot of what he said moved the crush along quite nicely.

I always wanted to be the lady that walked into his office and say something brilliant, offer my hand and then walk away.

How weird is that?

My two new crushes, you guessed it: David Brooks and Paul Krugman.

Don't you think David looks like that adorable actor in The Christmas Story movie?

Every time I see him the TV I think about their similarities. Take a look:

So cute. He even has that same little chuckle and they are always up to something. But I think he's at his cutest when he's serious and nailing an argument. and he knows it.

This is the look I love:

Finally, and admittedly, this is a little off-the-wall, but I noticed that when Paul Krugman gets all smarty-pants on the air, his ears start to curve out a little. Go see for yourself, he's on every channel as the one person who is challenging little Timmy's plans. The media are having field day with him, but I find him adorable. And I don't ever like beards.

Watch the ears......

And Paul, I double dare you to shave the beard.

Well, as a man I am ashamed to admit I go by looks. Of course that is only for crushes. Reality is all together different.
Thanks for visiting Grampys place.

I would pick Paul over Brad any day. My not crushing on Brad Pitt is legendary in my circle of friends.

Oh, I like the nerdy guys too. And the chubby, funny guys, give me one of them over a hearth throb any day.

I am ashamed to admit I don't know who the hell any of those people are.

I've been too busy trying to steal David Boreanaz from the Captain to pay attention to anything else.

Jimmy Buffett is God to me(BTW his birthday is Dac.25). Before I married my husband I told him at any time in our marriage I would leave him if Jimmy asked.
"You looked marvelous today."

I'm so with you on this. My crushes have always been the intellectual/artist/college professor type. I wouldn't mind if one of them just happened to come in a George Clooney suit, however:)
