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.

Daenarys

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

Emma

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

Eva

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

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

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.

Kiyomi

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

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

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-453x441

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.

Being out of school & having only a part time job has all of a sudden new chances to try new television shows. So I had Eric download me the American version of Being Human & decided to try Girls & Femmes Fatales on OnDemand. I’d heard a lot of Being Human from some friends on Facebook & they seemed to really enjoy it. Girls & Fmmes Fatales had interesting blurbs and either just started or had season 1 available so I decided on those to try one night while I was bored. Below are my thoughts.

 

Being Human

 

So there’s Aidan the vampire, Josh the werewolf & Sally the ghost. They all live together in one house & try to make a go of it with their resp0ective struggles. Josh is an orderly at a hospital & Aidan is a nurse at the same hospital. Yeah, a vamp working at a hospital, sound familiar? It’s really not. Anyway…. I truly expected to love this show from the get-go, I remember seeing a preview of it & I just couldn’t wait to try it. Well I’ve tried it & I just can’t force myself to go back and finish the season. I find Aidan (hot as all hell ;-p) just the cliché struggling to stay good vamp but failing at times. I liked that there are vampires in every facet of the city to ‘clean up’ any mistakes that any of them make. I did like seeing Mark Pellegrino back on screen though, there’s just something I love about him & hey being head vamp dude is not so shabby. Josh is THE most annoying werewolf in the world I’m sure. I cannot stand his whining or his whiny faces. And Sally, well there just wasn’t much to her at first & I don’t think I’ve made it far enough to say how I really feel about her. I’ve checked the spoilers though & if you’re anything like me, you are right as rain about her death circumstances.

Overall, it has some moments but not enough to draw me in. I think I’ll try the British version since it’s on NetFlix. The acting’s not bad but I don’t feel much chemistry among the characters, but again it could be that I just haven’t made it very far in. For me, B-

Femmes Fatales

It was an interesting concept to me. Women (always gorgeous, of course) coming out on top through methods not exactly innocent. Boy was I wrong. This is apparently based on a Men’s magazine which explains a lot I didn’t know in the first 3 episodes. One reviewer on IMDB said he didn’t feel as though nudity was seen just for the sake of seeing it, I disagree. I saw so many lady bits I was confused about what I was watching. The show is a cheesefest, over the top acting that I‘m sure hope is a part of the act. The show apparently does pretty well but I’m not sure who’s watching it, okay scratch that it’s men duh. The few plots that I’ve seen have had potential, a young movie starlet being thrown in jail with a jealous head guard & she has to survive however she can, even after catching the token jail baddie & a nurse who is taken hostage by a gangbanger brought in from a gun fight. But everything went so wrong.

Overall, too cheesy/skinemaxy for me. C-

 

Girls

 

I’ll be honest I’m not yet sure how I feel about this show. Actually that’s not totally true. I feel the same way I felt about Nurse Jackie when I started watching that. I felt an inexplicable draw to it. I needed to know what was going to happen but I wasn’t sure why. The creator’s (Lena Dunham) character is by far the most irritating character on television right now. She reminds me of Michael Cera, the voice, the mannerisms & the incessant talking fast to make a point. I was a girl that age once & my sister is that age now. This is not the strange shit that happens when you are 19-20. Certainly not Jessa’s life!! Although I have to admit she is my fave character because 1. I LOVE her accent & 2. She’s not afraid to be vocal about wanting & getting sex & 3. She’s not bloody afraid of anything. She’s fucking wild & crazy and I envy that mentality. The ‘I can do whatever the fuck I want’ mentality. Shoshanna is by far underused in this show, the last episode she accidentally smoked crack & I cracked up. Normally this wouldn’t be so funny, but she already talks a mile a minute & then she sped up WHILE running away from the guy Jessa told to watch over her. And then there’s Marnie. She is the quintessential girl in the group defined by her relationship with her boyfriend. She is absolutely gorgeous but bitchy as all hell & annoying because everything revolves around her relationship with Charlie or lack thereof. Back quick to Hannah since I got off track up there. She is in a very strange relationship with a guy named Adam who is ALWAYS inappropriate & quite honestly a jackass to her. She is floating from job to job after being cut off financially from her parents which she whined about like a little bitch. Seriously?!?! Time to grow the fuck up!! Honestly she annoys me like crazy, yeah I know I’ve already said that but I don’t think I can say it enough.

Anyhoo, because I can’t help but be drawn back in but also because I don’t know why I’m going to hover between an A- & a B+. But I think it’s worth a try for anyone really.

I have just finally gotten around to watching the first part of Breaking Dawn & what a piece of shit it is. I will admit it I really enjoy the book series. It’s fluffy, silly & light reading with enough sentimental shit to tug on my heartstrings but overall I have not been impressed with any of the movies. I found them to be getting steadily better from the first installment but this last one takes the rotten cake to another level.

How many damned slow motion close-ups do I need of Bella’s pouty face. I maintain that this book (regardless of how massive it looks) had no business being made into a 2-part movie. There is not nearly enough to keep it full of interesting visuals & this movie made it blatantly clear by spending forever and a day on a wedding that, let’s be totally honest here, Bella looked miserable walking down the aisle to.

And what on Earth was going on with those wolfy voices?!?! Were they trying to yell at each other from inside a cave or something? Makes no bloody sense why they would talk like that at all. What a fucking joke almost all of the wolf scenes were actually. That lame fight at the end? Give it up, men don’t watch these movies so they can say they watched the best (re: LAME) action sequence EVER, if they watch it at all it’s to make sure they are getting laid, hopefully with extra goodies thrown in there for them. SO stop trying to appeal to men, they don’t give a rat’s ass.

I will say, however, that the job they did at making Bella look emaciated was exceptionally done. She looked disgusting, so well done special effects/make-up people. If only the acting was on par with the make-up but hey we can’t get that many miracles from that department can we?

The honeymoon was filmed beautifully but again entirely too many close-ups and slow motion shit. Yes, I get it they’re finally having sex but slow ass filming of playing chess….. what the fuck!

I am pissed off even more so than I have been about any of the other movies. Thankfully this waste of my time was brought to me free by the Halifax Public Library system so that’s a plus.

For all the people out there that told me this was such an amazing movie & the best of the bunch so far……….

What the fuck were you watching???

Another collaboration with Eric (Guess who’s idea this one was, lol). We each have 25 because I simply couldn’t cut my list down, and just kept thinking of more instead of less. Once I reached 25 that was it though, no more. They are in no particular order and are listed by their show character, not necessarily their actual names.

Here is Eric’s list, check it out….After you’ve checked mine out, lol

Zack Morris – Saved By The Bell

 One of my childhood crushes. *Time out* *Time In*

Weevil – Veronica Mars

And Weevil on a motorcycle, yum yum even better!

Tory Belleci – MythBusters

Tory cracks me up, and he’s willing to do just about anything. Can’t go wrong there.

Spike & Angel – Buffy The Vampire Slayer

I’m actually fairly new to this show, tried it before left it then started trying it again with Netflix. But these two guys make Buffy’s whining easier to sit through.

Scott Wilson & Justin Lukach – Departures

Another new show. Justin is HILARIOUS! Scott is so down to Earth and sensitive. I love the two of them traveling together, and pushing each other to do different things.

Sawyer – Lost

Ah Sawyer!! King of nicknames, and King of my Lost heart!

Jack – Revenge

He’s just so darn sweet, you can’t help but love him. But then he gets behind the wheel of his boat and I’m just lost.

Pacey Witter – Dawson’s Creek

Pacey was not only my favourite character of the series, but in my eyes he could do no wrong, even when he was doing the teacher.

Khal Drogo – Game of Thrones

Jon SNow – Game of Thrones

My GoT boys. Drogo is so damn sexy that it makes me want to watch Conan just to see Jason Momoa barely clad again. And Jon Snow is such an endearing character he makes my heart melt, plus those ringlets aren’t bad wither ;-P

Kappy – Greek

The sensitive party boy, somehow able to make ugly hockey hair look good.

King Henry – The Tudors

A far cry from the portraits of actual King Henry the Eighth. I’d risk beheading for those ice blues and pouty lips.

Nathan Scott – One Tree Hill

From asshole to sweetheart to lost to superstar and so on and so forth. Whatever his ‘tude is, he’s still a great husband and father and I just love him to pieces.

Gordon Ransay – Hell’s Kitchen & Kitchen Nightmares

Yes, he’s a huge asshole, but he’s damn sexy while being one.

Eric Northman & Godric – True Blood

Eric is always smoldering no matter how much of a jerk he’s being, and there’s something about Godric’s manner and then his tattoos that get me going.

Dexter Morgan – Dexter

Dark passenger and all.

Coop – Nurse Jackie

Coop is so flippin’ funny, stupid as hell but lovable all the same. I even think Jackie’s starting to come around to him, just a smidgen.

Caleb – Pretty Little Liars

This is definitely more of a , darn if I was a little younger I’d be all for him. He’s a sweetheart with an edge, which seems to be a theme here, lol

Michael – Roswell

Broody Michael with his smoochable lips!!

Agent Seeley Booth – Bones

Agent Booth can arrest me any day!!

The Big Bang Boys – The Big Bang Theory

I couldn’t decide on just one of them. Leonard is short but sweet and pretty good looking for always wearing hoodie, Howard cracks me up and I love a man that can make me laugh, Raj is too adorable for words which would be just fine since I’m a woman and he wouldn’t talk to me anyway, lol. And Sheldon is just plain Sheldon, can’t help but love him especially that itty bitty laugh he does.

Bazinga!!

Anderson Cooper – CNN & Anderson & Anderson 360

No matter how boring the subject he may be discussing, he makes it look good while he does it.

Amar – Little Mosque on the Prairie

Former lawyer, madly in love with a woman and a great friend and imam.

Cesar Milan – The Dog Whisperer

I might not agree with all of his advice, but he is a dog lover and so patient with the people he tries to teach. And I love listening to him talk in Spanish!

Bart SImpson – The Simpsons

As a child I had such a mad crush on Bart. Carefree (duh, he’s a kid) and a rule breaker, that’s my kind of cartoon boyfriend, lol

Greg – CSI

He cracks me up, and his wacky hair and smarts work for me!

So it seems as though a theme is present. I like humour, bad assness & crazy hair it seems. Well Eric has 2/3 so maybe there’s something there after all. J/K husband I love ya!!
