she liked Imaginary Men best of all


A girl walks into a bar…

Today I discovered the feature on Facebook that lets you look at an archive of your old posts and status updates. I randomly selected April 2012 and scanned through to see that I sure posted a lot about food, Downton Abbey and Ewan McGregor!

I also found a status I posted on a day I clearly remember for a very important reason:

I have been so useless today. I’m supposed to go out now even though I’d rather go to bed, I’m so exhausted by my uselessness ;-p

That Saturday is still very vivid in my mind: I wasted a lot of time doing nothing at my apartment. Then I went grocery shopping and in the parking lot I ordered out and picked up my dinner on my way home (I was too lazy to cook what I just bought!) then I got comfy on my couch eating take-out and catching up on my DVR. I was due to go see my friend’s band at 10PM and that’s probably near when I posted this.

I really did NOT want to go but I was a single girl with no good excuse to bail on seeing friends on a Saturday night. The gig was about 5 minutes from my house and I could be home in two hours tops.


And that’s what happened – despite being cranky and texting on my phone a cute guy bravely walked up to me to say hi and introduced himself and like that – my life changed forever. I would have missed out on meeting The World’s Best Boyfriend and nearly a year’s worth of discovering what it really means to meet that one person who is your perfect fit because I thought getting out of comfy pants and away from Revenge was too much effort.

Earlier that same month I posted a quote from The World’s Ultimate TV Boyfriend, Mr. Pacey Witter:

You want to know something Miss Josephine Potter? I think the world just may surprise you yet. I mean you fall in love, and it doesn’t work out, you think it will never happen, but it does, believe me it does, in the strangest of places.

So what’s my lesson here? 1. Always Listen to Pacey!! and 2. Get off your ass and make things happen. Sweet, handsome, loving, supportive-of-your-Boy-Band-obsession-bring-you-cookies-and-make-you-dinner-guys don’t just knock on your door and ask if you’re available!! You have to do the work and put in the time and sometimes whether it’s a project, job, goal or a boy – really lovely things happen.




Ewan McGregor is sexy – thank you Captain Obvious!

The best thing about being an Out and Proud Fangirl is that friends think of you whenever they see something about one of your crushes that they know you will like.

For example – recently I was alerted by two different girlfriends on the same day that I needed to see this photo of Ewan McGregor in the latest InStyle:


 Oh my would I like to go a few rounds with him 😉

This is my kind of manicure!


Calling all Fangirls! Think of the possibilities!: An entire Boy Band, Hot Teen Vampires, a Dillon Texas Football team or ten times the Hamm, Gosling and McGregor AT YOUR FINGERTIPS!!! 🙂


Run from the Darkness in the Night

I’m watching Long Way RoundMy Scottish Boyfriend Ewan McGregor and his best mate Charley Boorman traveling by motorcycles from London to New York City “the long way round.” It’s very entertaining and sort of mind boggling the amount of planning and effort that is needed to cross through so many countries, not to mention the TIME. 3 months of sleeping in tents in Russia. How many fancy pants movie stars would do THAT??  (although I can think of plenty of celebrities I’d like to send to a tent in Russia. Permanently.)

From what I’ve watched so far, Ewan could not be a cooler guy: he’s funny, self-deprecating, loyal, passionate, polite, calm under pressure and a total boy who thinks dick jokes are funny and gets giddy at the idea of not having to wear clean clothes regularly. He also likes to strum a guitar and sing a song:

Say it ain’t so Ewan!!

Lord knows I love me some Ewan McGregor. I certainly love how he wears clothes and I love how many of his films involve him seducing (sometimes married) women and often a good dose of full frontal Ewan nudity.

Well today I read this and screamed (silently in my head because I was in public): NOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! I posted it on FB and all day long got comments of the “I disagree completely. Bring on the penis” and “MORE EWAN PENIS” variety. I suggested starting a petition to get him to change his mind. There was plenty of support for that as well 😉

What I always appreciated about Ewan going nude – besides the Hot Naked Scotsman jollies – was that he was bringing equality to movies by being naked as much as (or sometimes instead of ) the actresses. He seemed confident about doing it and would strip down in scenes with men and women with equal joy and abandon. That confidence (and his insane charisma) just made him sexier and even more fun to watch.

I mean, really Ewan? No more of this sorta stuff either??


Imaginary Men in 2010 “reads WOW”!

Check out this cool thing WordPress sent me about my blogging last year. And many thanks to Fabulous Blogging Pal Julie for all the traffic! (also, clearly someone needs to make a movie with Ewan McGregor, Brad Pitt, Nathan Fillion and Paul Wesley! Maybe about James Dean? 😉 )

Healthy blog!

Jake worked hard so we couldn’t see his body?!

I’m still peeved about this whole Prince of Persia Jake Gyllenhaal Isn’t Actually Shirtless At All Suckers business. In Target I saw they have dolls of Jake’s character Prince Dastan and lo and behold – they’re not shirtless either! (although they are for children so perhaps this is sensible):

This looks NOTHING like Jake Gyllenhaal!

EW had a piece about Jake’s regimen to physically look the part for this role. It sounds totally punishing – a “three to five mile run through the sand while wearing a 20 pound jacket”?? UGH!! And that’s with only espresso and a piece of fruit powering him through!

Poor guy, I’d be pissed I did all that stupid work and all anyone saw were my (admittedly awesome) arms. Big fat FAIL to the Disney execs who looked at this movie and said, “You know what we need less of? Shots of our star’s buff body who we paid tremendous amounts of money to so he would look like that.”

As for this doll, I think he’d fit right in at the Action Palace with the Matty and Ewan dolls! Damn those Barbie’s next door in the Dream House wouldn’t know what to think!


Nothing but a number – I think not!

So yesterday this 10 month old blog got it’s 30,000th hit! Then went past it! I guess that means that people I don’t even know are actually reading this 🙂

Thanks to everyone I know and those I don’t for making this such a successful, fun, rewarding endeavor. I’m so pleased my extreme focus on all things Flowers, Mullen, McGregor, Shirtless, Vampirey, 80’s, Pacey, Crush Crafty, Cute and Stalkery has found a happy little place on the interwebs.


Wall of Men ’10

Last year when I started this blog I posted about the Wall of Men I had in college. I mentioned I was thinking of starting a new one, which I did:

Currently making the cut: Dirty Ewan,  Matty Motherfuckin’ Jason Bourne Damon, Brandon of course, and the Brothers Salvatore.

I’m thinking someone is going to have to move soon for Jake Gyllenhaal (and it won’t be the three at the bottom.)

Doncha like how they’re pinned up on corkboard squares, because I’m all grown up and shit – so no more blu-tack for me 😉
