Oh Dear Crush, You Make Me Swoon

Let's talk about crushes today!

Evan Dando - crushable??
This idea came about because I have a friend, I won't mention any names, but she is part of Team Jam and isn't the one that shows pictures of her ass in every post. This particular Team Jam member might be obsessing over Evan Dando. What? You don't know him? I hear he is the front man for the Lemonheads. Yeah, the Lemonheads.... She and Dando are besties, too! I think he's going to move into her garage.

Anyway, this got me thinking. Do/did I have any celebrity crushes that I obsess(ed) over? Is there anyone that I would go out of my way to see, even if it involved different states and hotels?

Then I realized Yes. There is one celebrity that I still repeatedly check the official website for. I've seen him in 3 different states. I cried the first time I got to see him with my own eyes. I even tried to get tickets to his TV show back in the day. It pains me when he is near and I can't afford to miss work to get to where he is. I've had a crush on him since 1996 when he still had his beautiful curly locks. Who is this man that makes my heart swoon? This object of perfection?

Howie Mandel.
Las Vegas - 1997, my first time seeing my future husband. How rad are my clothes??

True story. OMG I can't get enough of staring at him. And when he makes me laugh? Even better!

Other crush worthy gents? Mark Harmon. Anthony Hopkins. *NSync as a collective whole.

So how about you? Care to come clean about any celeb crush you have or used to have back in the day?


  1. I'm DYING.

    You picked maybe a less flattering picture than I would have used. I mean.... he's so pretty.

    I can't stop laughing at Howie Mandel.

    Please refer back to my blog post last night when picturing the pretty that is Evan Dando. Thank you.

  2. Lance Bass. I have a tendency to pick the gay ones before they come out.

  3. Omg, Anthony Hopkins is a dream. Sometimes I have a hard time deciding if I would rather have him or Kevin Spacey. I'd be fine with either one!

  4. Nope. Sorry, my crushes tend to be more earthly and potentially obtainable... BUT, I *MIGHT* be inclined to put Halle Barry, or Queen Latifa on a list...and maybe Laura Prepon, or possibly Jennifer Connolly (if she'd start eating again). Nope, no crushes here.

  5. Since Elvis is gone, Joaquin Phoenix is it for me!
