Welcome to week three of #listmania! I hope you are having as much fun as I am – I love starting the week off making the rounds of linked up posts and visiting more through the week.
This week we are talking about crushes – those we had growing up and those we might be harboring these days (any overlaps for anyone?).
My old crushes circa 1980s
I was born in 1972 and came of age in the USA with Teen beat and Tiger beat magazines. I would use pocket money to buy these plus candy and Archie comics whenever I had the chance
C Thomas Howell – Pony Boy in the outsiders, I had posters of this boy on my bedroom walls.
Michael Schoeffling -who played Jake Ryan in 16 Candles was my fantasy boyfriend
Maxwell Caulfield from Grease 2 (and Dynasty and then virtually nothing) had pride of place on my bedroom door where I made a complete door cover out of posters of pin up boys
Shaun Cassidy was one of my first crushes while I was still in single digits. I watched the Nancy Drew and Hardy Boys Mysteries on TV, had all his albums and sang Da Doo Ron Ron and Hey Deanie hundreds of times.
Scott Baio – From “Happy Days” to “Joannie loves Chachie” to “Charles in charge” I happily watched Scott Baio on TV for years.
Grown up crushes
My list is mostly actors who I could watch in anything including a crappy film if they were starring…
Alex O’Loughlin from Hawaii 5-O, Moonlight (still missing that they never finished this series ) and “The back up plan” movie. All Aussie and just my pre-marriage “type”
Ryan Reynolds – I have loved him in everything since his “Two guys, a girl and pizza place” days and “The proposal” is one of my favourite movies.
Josh Lucas – Sweet Home Alabama (sigh – love him in that movie)
Chris O’Dowd – from “Bridesmaids” and “Friends with kids”… He just has that “something” even though he is not a traditional pin up, would love to meet him for a night at the pub
Timothy Olyphant – ever since Deadwood (another unfinished tale) I love the guy. Hubs and I just re-watched Die hard 4 and I realized he was the main bad guy !
Who was your biggest or most embarrassing crush? Who makes your heart go crazy these days (or is at least easy on the eyes)?
