Love Around the World

My cousin Beth has tagged me to talk about my crushes. You have NO idea how hard that is! I have always been "boy crazy" so for me to talk about the boys I've crushed on is extremely difficult. I've decided just to pick a few...

First off - non celebrity boys...

I had my first crush in kindergarten... his name was Chuckie W. I have been told I chased him all over the classroom trying to kiss him. Guess it started young...

Then there was Kevin M. We were "boyfriend/girlfriend" in second and third grade. I remember walking to and from the PE field holding hands and trying to hide it from the teachers. We decided we would have 12 kids when we got married... thank heavens THAT didn't work out. I'm not sure where he is today. I talked to him once when I was a senior in high school; he was already married. Eeeek.

My biggest crush in high school was a secret. I didn't tell a soul for fear of being laughed at. His name was Kelly J. and OMG did I lust him. He was a football player, very popular and built like a Mack truck. (I was a band geek) I would see him walking down the halls and just turn to butter. One day I was eating lunch with a friend who was a senior (as was Kelly); I think I was a junior. He came and sat with us! He wanted to ask my friend out. I had mixed emotions... I wanted him to like ME, but I was OK with him asking my friend. I soon found out he was extremely shy... and had the most beautiful sly, sneaky smile. We became passing friends - we'd say "Hi" in the halls. It was all I needed. I still think about him to this day and get those little longing pains in my stomach.

Oh yeah -- I wound up dating his best friend, Derek, for about a year. That was one way to get close to him, too. Sneaky, huh?

In college I had a crush on a guy that I called "Oh my!" cause whenever I saw him that was all I could say. He had long, dark hair and just looked like a rocker. I later discovered he was in a band - one of those 80/90 hair bands! Hell yeah! One afternoon he stopped and talked to a girl in one of my classes. I asked her that day what his name was. She told me, but I don't remember. She and I became best friends; she introduced me to my sorority sisters and we are friends to this day. I can thank "Oh My" for that one... (Holla, Kim!)

I've had many other crushes - Bill, Mike D., Kai to name a few. I could go on and on, but it would take you DAYS to read them all.

Now... for the celebrity boys.

I'm not going to go in detail about these boys. I think I'm just going to list them... in no certain order...
  • Shaun Cassidy
  • Leif Garrett - I used to pretend I was married to him. Once again - thank heavens that didn't happen!
  • Scott Baio - met him one time at Six Flags. Just as cute in person - maybe more so
  • Willie Aames
  • Adam Ant
  • Duran Duran - yes, all of them
  • Brian Setzer from the Stray Cats
  • Orlando Bloom - yum, yum, yum
  • Johnny Depp
  • Donnie Osmond
  • Axel Rose
  • Jon Bon Jovi
  • Jani Lane from Warrant*
  • Clive Owen
  • Matt Dillon
  • Robert Downey, Jr.
  • Brad Pitt
  • Val Kilmer
  • Paul Stanley
  • Denzel Washington
  • Alton Brown
  • Hugh Jackman

I know there are more - a lot more - but my mind has gone completely blank. I'll have to add on to the list as I think of them.

Heidi, you and I like the same type... can you add to this list?

Now for the tag... hmmm... Klee, Skippy Mom, Biddie, Pioneer Woman, Dad... you up to it?

* Back in the day, my friends and I hung out at a rock-n-roll club. I started dating the bouncer (whom I knew from middle school - another crush). He was a tough guy and I loved hanging with him. One night the band Warrant came into the club. They got drunk (duh) and rowdy (double duh) and started acting like a bunch of jerks. Jani started popping off at my boyfriend - who didn't appreciate it very much. Boyfriend finally had enough and proceeded to whoop. Jani's. ass. I loved it! I still had a crush on Jani, but it was tainted.

Marni said...

I didn't know he was on it... I probably would have laughed SO hard because he was tiny back then.

Beth said...

Damn! I should have included David Cassidy on my list; some funny stories there.

Your list is quite interesting ...

SkippyMom said...

I am ON IT! Woohoo! Being comprable of age my list will be a bit similar for celebrity [Leif Garrett? your comment about cracked me up!]

I remember Chuckie but not the rest. Keeping secrets, huh? I realize I am from a different generation, but some of your celebrity crushes are just plain weird. You didn’t tell them you had a crush on Michael Jackson, too. And who is Alton Brown?

Go to my blog to see a little bit more about the mouse.
