Dear Lord, thank You for making Idris.
Sure, sure, I’m madly in love with Tom Hiddleston, Tom Hardy, and that hottie who plays Thor.
But I’m also a woman of a certain age, in the last throes of her 40s, and so I give you my age-appropriate crushes. There’s just something about a man with staying power.
Topping the list, of course, is RDJ, who often appears in my dreams (thanks, Bobby.) I call this picture "the ovary destroyer." I loved him when we were both young. I felt so bad when he went through his bad days. I feel so proud of him now. Those eyes don't hurt my adoration.
And here's John Stamos. Who knew, right? I mean, really, the mullet from the 80s, the bad movies, the saccharine TV show...and then we get this. Those yogurt commercials? Thank you! More please!
Norman Reedus, or Daryl of the Amazing Arms from The Walking Dead. The first time I saw him, I thought, "Oh, dear Lord, take a shower, honey." Then I heard him speak. Oooh. Very nice! That growly, sullen, bad-boy thang...yaas, bae! Stay dirty, Daryl! (My children cringe when I talk like that. So what? Let them cringe!)
Hugh "Perfection" Jackman. I'm gonna be honest here and tell you something shocking. His looks...not my type. Yeah, yeah, he's perfect, but were I in a bar with Idris and RDJ and Norman Reedus and Hugh (ehrmagerd, yes, let's run with this!), Hugh would be last on the list of men I found attractive. Until I realized it's St. Hugh of Perfect, married for more than two decades to the same woman, father of two adopted kids, and by all accounts, the nicest man on the planet. So it's his heart that makes me love him. I'm not always shallow.
Well, that’s all the eye candy I have today. Enjoy! Back to work for me.
