These are a few of my favorite things

#Getting to know me#Good News

A good friend of mine turns thirty this month. Oh, GASP! THIRTY! She sent out an email asking some of us what our favorite parts of being thirty were. It’s a really good question and I finally have the answer.

My libido, it has finally arrived.

There’s this cruel rumor that travels around the High Schools which touts that boys peak sexually at 17, women at 30. At 16 years old, it’s easy to laugh about because HAHA ON YOU! You horny little man! The joke, it is not so funny at thirty. Actually, it’s annoying. Or cruel. Really really cruel.

So I sit around with my girlfriends and we list out our five. “Your five?!” You’re asking. Yes, our FIVE. You know, the five people we find attractive and are giving free ride (er, pun not intended) to “do”  by our spouses should we have the chance. I mean, doesn’t everyone sit around discussing their “Five”?

So, in no particular order (except it is in THIS ORDER) here are my five yummies.

John Corbett Fell in love with him in Northern Exposure. I still listen to his voice and thing dreamy thoughts of living in a cabin with him off in the woods. Raur.

Paul Rudd Just. Hot.

John Krasinkski Hello, he’s holding an iPod. I’m a fan. Also, I wish I was Pam.

Patrick Dempsey Who doesn’t?

Zach Braff I watch everything he’s in. I heart his taste in music, too.

I would add my son’s pediatrician to the mix but Mr. Flinger said it can’t be someone I know in REAL LIFE. Damn. Instead, I’ll just put on makeup to take him to his well baby check this morning. And that’s not sad. Not at all.

Who are in your five?


  1. Replace Dempsey with Alan Rickman and we have the same list.

  4. 1. Albert Brooks (I know, I’m weird.)

    2. Steve Martin (See a pattern developing here? No wonder I married a man 18 years my senior.)

    3. James Tupper (OMG! So hot. He probably should be my #1. http://imdb.com/name/nm0876805/)

    4. Luke Wilson tied with:

    5. Owen Wilson (Heck, bring on a Wilson brother sandwich. I’d be SO there…)

    5. Jude Law

  6. Wow, we have very similar taste in men.  I, too, am a sucker for brown hair, somewhat nerdy looking, intellectual, somewhat outdoorsy-looking hotties.  Mmmmm!

    By Emily on 2007 07 31

  7. Your first 2 are for sure on my list.
    Ty Pennington
    Matthew Perry
    i’ll keep the 5th open for whoever strikes me at the moment.  haha

  8. Replace John Krasinkski with Ethan Embry and we also have the same list. I have a guy friend who really likes Zach Braff as an actor/director and I tease him “It’s the lips, just admit it…”

    By Judy on 2007 07 31

  9. Gee thanks, you stole my post for tomorrow!!!

    Anyway, I loves me some Patrick Dempsey.

    Also…Josh Duhamel, Beckham…I’d like to bend it with him if you know what I mean, Tommy Lee ...have you seen the video?,  Ashon Kutcher.

    By Jennifer on 2007 07 31

  10. WOW! your Five are all very very similar looking!  I think my 5 would be:
    Matthew Mcconaughey
    Matt Leinart
    Matthew Fox
    Dane Cook
    James Denton

    ok weird- what are the chances the first 3 have the name Matt???

  11. in no special order or anything..

    Steven Tyler
    Richard Gere (mmm old guys hahaha)
    Taylor Hanson (I have to..I’m just in that age range where I wanted to bone the hell out of him at 14)
    Ryan Gosling (have totally had a thing for him since I was 11..and good lord the man just gets better and better looking)
    Bruce Willis (random, right? but I’ll bet his sexings are hot)

  12. You do realize that in those photos your first three look remarkably the same?  I guess that shows you do, indeed, have a type.

    By Elaine on 2007 07 31

  13. My 5 in no particular order:

    Dempsey: This is so sad, but he actually started acting in a little theater in my town.  Whenever we go for shows there, I always wonder if his sweet ass ever sat in the seat I’m in.

    Jude Law, Did you see The Holiday?  I just don’t think it gets sexier than that. 

    Dermot Mulroney:  Just so hot.

    Colin Firth:  Accents get me every time.

    Christian Bale:  I loved him, forever.  It all started with Newsies.  Man, I am a dork.

    Oh, wanted to let you know, I moved to wordpress.  momoncoffee.com

  14. You’ll have to fight me for John Krasinkski and Zach Braff.  Seriously, I mean fight!

    I would also add Jon Stewart.

    I cannot think of anymore, so I will add John Krasinski and Zach Braff again.  Gotta love Thursday nights - yum!
