I am a woman who is married to a man who can appreciate that women, by far, have the more appealing bodies. Because I needed some lightness & fun in my day, I decided to highlight some of my girl crushes because they are quite admirable. Keep in mind that they are in no particular order.

The beautiful Cameron Diaz. I’ve enjoyed her in every role I’ve seen her in (that I can think of right now) but I think she’s funny, personable in interviews, plus I always feel that she’d be pretty down to Earth in real life.


Emilia Clarke but in reality it’s her character Daenarys that I love. The fierceness and unwillingness to let ‘being a woman’ stand in her way is what makes me ‘girl swoon’ ;-p


Miss Emma Stone, very much the same reasons as Cameron Diaz in all honesty


Smoldering Eva Green. I love everything about her, I wish she was in more but she’s very choosy about what she does. I respect that,but I do love to listen to her talk and her gaze is powerfully intense.


Kat Dennings…I continue to watch 2 Broke Girls for her, pretty much just her. She’s more than just a walking, talking pair of boobs her deadpan delivery is spot-on, I like that.


Kate Hudson. I think she’d make a great best friend for some reason. Also for unknown reasons I always think of her as her How to Lose a Guy character, a girl’s girl but also a girl who can throw down with the boys.


Kyomi McCloskey – Lead singer of Hunter Valentine, also appeared in the last season of The Real L Word, where she was kind of a douchebitch, but yet I still couldn’t take my eyes off her when she was around. So douchey but still sweet at the right times, and gorgeous!


Mila Kunis. I love her big eyes, and the humour that seems to come so easily. I’ve read an interview with her about playing World of Warcraft when she was dating Macaulay Culkin and she was so personable.


Nathalie Dormer. I have a bit of an obsession with Anne Boleyn for some reason and she was my first introduction to her as more than a beheaded old queen. Now she’s playing Margaery Tyrell in Game of Thrones and I am always excited for an episode she appears in. I love the little upward curl of her lip she usually has going on, and give me an accent any day.


Pink!!! She is totally badass, fierce and unflinching.

Today I’m giving you a blast from the past. Angelina Jolie is amazingly beautiful, courageous and generous. Her lips are exquisite but she carries herself with an enormous amount of grace that is hard not to admire. So, my introduction to her was in Foxfire where she was young, and covering up her womanly attributes but exudes beauty regardless.

Another hubby collaboration.

There are some characters that you just want to throttle because they are so irritating. It’s not the actor (well okay sometimes it is) but the character they are portraying . This post is dedicated to those guys/gals, you can check out Eric’s list HERE

In no particular order:

Daisy Wick – Bones

DAISY: You know, every time I get stuck on my dissertation, I think to myself, “WWBD.”
BRENNAN: I have no idea what that means.
DAISY:“What Would Brennan Do?” I mean, it really should be “WWDBD”- “What Would Dr. Brennan Do?” but that seems unnecessarily formal since I’m only thinking it silently.

Rachel Berry – Glee

“You might laugh because every time I sign my name I put a gold star after it, but it’s a metaphor, and metaphors are important. My gold stars a metaphor for me being a star.”

Meredith Grey – Grey’s Anatomy

“Okay, here it is, your choice… it’s simple, her or me, and I’m sure she is really great. But Derek, I love you, in a really, really big ‘pretend to like your taste in music, let you eat the last piece of cheesecake, hold a radio over my head outside your window’, unfortunate way that makes me hate you, love you. So pick me, choose me, love me.”

Priya Koothrapali – Big Bang Theory

It’s probably sad that I just couldn’t find a good quote from Priya. The character was carried by all the rest repeatedly. Thankfully she’s gone now.

Zoey – HIMYM

Another one I just couldn’t find anything good from. But honestly who would want to be in a relationship that you can’t agree on ANYTHING, especially the big stuff.

Tara Thornton – True Blood

“Know what you sound like? One of those country songs about dumb bitches that let their men beat on them and cheat on them, all in the name of true love.” I actually really liked Tara in season one, would have counted her in among my faves, but along came Maryann & Eggs and things went downhill from there. Sad.

Napoleon Dynamite – Napoleon Dynamite

Deb What are you drawing?
Napoleon Dynamite A liger.
Deb What’s a liger?
Napoleon Dynamite It’s pretty much my favorite animal. It’s like a lion and a tiger mixed… bred for its skills in magic.

Lila – Dexter

“Oh, pardon my tits.”

Well if they weren’t always hanging out we wouldn’t have to Lila, lol.

Liz Parker – Roswell

“Have you ever had a moment when you’re with the one person in the world you want to be with and the wind is blowing through your hair and the song that just describes your entire soul happens to come on, and then the person that you want to be with happens to love the same song and suddenly you realize you’re listening to it together? And that no matter how crazy your life has gotten there’s this one moment… this perfect moment… where you could just say that no matter what happens, nothing can take this moment away from me… And then, something does.” <Gag>

Marissa Cooper – The O.C.

“Standing my ground is not really my strong suit.”

Ruby Rhod – The Fifth Element

“Quiver, ladies, quiver”


David – Shaun of the Dead

David: Basically, I’d say your nine lives are up, Shaun
Shaun: Get fucked, four eyes! Why don’t you go out with her if you love her so much?
David: What do you mean by that?
[storms off]
David: Well, I don’t know what he meant by that.
[uncomfortable silence]

Druscilla – Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Drusilla: Ooh. I’m ringing. – Do you hear it? I’m ringing – all – over!
[Darla grabs the phone from Drusilla’s cleavage]
Drusilla: Oh, yeah. I forgot about that.

Theon Greyjoy – Game of Thrones

Couldn’t help but giggle at this.

“I am no man’s daughter. If you mislike my garb, I will change it.

Cassie Blake – The Secret Circle

“It’s like I’m living in a Harry Potter movie.”

A- Pretty Little Liars

How can a faceless person (team) be so annoying….. Because they are so faceless. Whoever A is they keep screwing around A-nonomously & it’s annoying.

Jenny Schector – The L-Word

“I’m sitting in the chair, writhing in agony. A demon, a minor demon, is pinning me there, fucking with my head. ‘Abraxas’, he says, ‘I’m Abraxas, the demon of lies and deceit’. ” <Writing. Always so dramatic & seriously just so fucked up!!

Catherine Martin – Silence of the Lambs

Maybe I’m just being cruel here, but stand up bitch and fight back. Scream, scream scream and wait for rescue I guess. Maybe steal a dog but then not plan for royally pissing off the freak that just kidnapped you.

Fran – The Nanny

Honestly I don’t remember much about this show except her strange nanny outfits & that damn voice. Screechy annoying voice, blech.

Michael Scott – The Office

I actually can’t stand this show, the strange camera set-up (which has also deterred me from Modern Family which I enjoyed otherwise). But how on Earth does this man get to be a manager, wtf!

“When I said that I was king of forwards, you’ve got to understand that I don’t come up with this stuff. I just forward it along. You wouldn’t arrest a guy who was just passing drugs from one guy to another.”

There are various reason why a character can be annoying as all hell & I know there are so many more out there. It’s nothing against the actors/actresses, although there are certainly some of those as well which you can’t stand in anything they play. For me those are Will Ferrell, Michael Cera & Steve Carrell, just not my cup of tea.
I haven’t been including a blast from the past lately so I’m going back in time to bring you…….
The Freaking California Raisins
It was mentioned on something Eric & I were watching the other day and I remember having little plastic figurines that I just loved to chew on for some reason.
