she liked Imaginary Men best of all

My MamaObsessive CMU!


So recently my mom has gotten into watching The Vampire Diaries. You may be surprised to know that I did not even make her watch it! She took it upon herself to see what all my hysteria was about and caught the S2 premiere, and now our entire Thursday night viewing schedule has been recalibrated to accommodate her growing fangirliness.

What got her invested? A little snarky, sexy, vampire bad boy with a wounded heart named Damon Salvatore, but of course ๐Ÿ˜› Sadly my mom does not love Stefan Salvatore and spends most of the episode bratting about him, demanding more Damon, giggling at everything Damon says, and carrying on about Ian Somerhalder’s dreamy eyes.

This is why my new on-line pal Cherie calls my mom a “Fangirl Incubator”!

In fact mom’s DamonLove has grown so exponentially that this weekend she went on to me in a rather detailed manner, about a movie that should be made starring Taylor Kitsch (her very beloved Tim Riggins) and Ian Somerhalder. In this movie they would be “trapped on on a island” (which should be no problem for the Man Formerly Known as Boone and the one about to sink your battleship), and have to “take off their shirts in the hot sun” and, “go into the ocean to catch their dinner to survive” then emerge from said dinner expedition, “all glistening and wet.”

My mother, ladies and gentleman! Clap clap clap!!

Frankly – what straight woman or gay man with eyesight and a pulse DOESN’T want to see this movie!?! Get my mother a three-picture deal stat!!

So to aid in her pitch – here’s what we’d be looking at for two hours. Oh and a plot? Really? Does it really need some plot stinking up the WetShirtlessSexiness?:

  1. Can you mum adopt all of us fangirls?!

    Her pitch is genuis – she truly is a visionary, with unparalleled genius for understanding the innerworkings of fangirls minds ๐Ÿ™‚

    God, you practically cracked my screen putting images of Damon and Riggins in the same post! All she needs to do is take those pics in to a group of female execs, say Exhibit A and B, and they would have to have rocks in their heads not to say “Sold!”

  2. I am SO EXCITED and HONORED to be somewhat the subject of the blog post!!!!!!!!
    I was kinda picturing a 21st century version of SWISS FAMILY ROBINSON but with just these two as brothers -other family members and parents would only take away from the MAIN ACTION of the bros washing up on shore, coming to, assessing their situation, storming about, brooding, maybe even crying, maybe even a fight or two, and then getting to work building a tree house [ which means lots of climbing :-)], aforementioned swimming to catch fish with spears they’ve made and knives they made from sharp rocks that they have to carry in their teeth as they emerge from their endeavors wet and glistening in the sun. Climbing palm trees to get coconuts. And long nights around a beach fire, reminiscing about life ‘in the world’. Then one can add something like a little SOUTH PACIFIC action when they build a canoe or raft and ‘explore’ and find a tiny nearby island with Polynesian folks and then some romance can be added. I used to watch a most wonderful weekly series when I was a kid – ADVENTURES IN PARADISE starring Gardener McKay [sp?]. Now he was drool-worthy!!! He sailed a schooner around the South Pacific [I think that’s where he was supposed to be]having adventures!! HEY – maybe an updated remake of that series!! Or an updated remake of one of my all time fave shows ROUTE 66 – about two friends that hit the road in a Corvette!! Now THAT would work for these two BIG TIME!!!!!

  3. Your mom is incredible but we’ve already established that ๐Ÿ™‚

    And at least she has ideas on how to utilize all these boys we obsess over! Producers would love to have someone like that on their staff who knows what women want with their men in movies/TV shows!

    She’d be awesome company too at the TVD appearances at Hot Topic!

  4. AWESOME! AWESOME! AWESOME! I am totally speechless. I am so going to be the first person to buy tickets to this movie, whenever it comes out!

    And I LOVEEEEEEEEEE those pics you chose as part of your “pitch.” (Combine them, add water, and we already have our movie poster!)

    I just have one question: How many times exactly did you watch the “Damon Dancing” video to screencap Ian’s abs in mid-thrust like that ;)? I’m betting at least 8 . . .
