The Problem with Laminating Your List...

Is that it is a LOTTA work when you have to change it....and I gotta tell you - I have to change my list.

So remember how I was telling you all about how much I heart Daniel Craig and how I put him on my list because I was sure that if he decided to show up in Sudan (becuase it seems to be every stupid celebrity's cause du jour) how I might actually be able to talk to him?? Remember that??

And remember how I made it my life's work to meet every manager of the five star hotels in Khartoum so that I would not miss it if/when he DID come to town?? Remember that??

Remember how I hadn't ever really watched Quantum of Solace (mostly because I didn't have access to TV here in Sudan and how the word Quantum kinda gives me the heebee-jeebies because it sounds too mathy??) Remember that??

Well, I was sick today (Sudan got me!) with a cold and in between the small coma I lapsed into over the whole damn weekend, I watched the Daniel Craig extravaganza, sure that I would love him even more.

I did not (what the hell was that?? What even happened there?? WHY were we watching that and WTF did he drink at the end? Shit! I swear I was paying attention, and I DO have at least an average IQ - Hey! I conned people into thinking I passed the foreign service exam AND that I read The Economist - when in reality there was a People magazine tucked down inside there --and I hated it. So now I'm contemplating my new choice for my list.

This choice is important. I bumped George Clooney for Daniel Craig when I saw George get all preachy and judgey about Sudan when he doesn't even really understand all the issues at play. (I really hate that. Do your homework man!) So now what??

No matter how obsessed I am, I can't put a 17 year old vampire from Forks, Washington on my list (a) because he's not real; (b) because I think my mom would totally disown me; (c) Liz and I would have a knock-down brawl over Edward; and (d) I think that might be illegal and I could potentially lose my job.

SO WHO SHOULD I CHOOSE TO REPLACE DANIEL. Now I realize some of you who still heart Daniel may try to dissuade me from dumping him - I mean, Daniel and I have been dating and he has been my Plan B for like 5 mos now - but after I saw the Daniel Craig Popsicle posted on Captain Dumbass' Us & Them, and then compounded by that movie - I knew he was not for me.

Welcome suggestions.

Maybe Hugh Jackman would be more your type? Not that I think that he is into bitching and eating mega ammounts of cake, but he seems to be a very versatile guy!

otin said...

I know, I really need to get a life! LOL!

What you need to do is give Daniel and George a quiz on Sudan. You can pick the one that handles it best!

SuburbanCorrespondent said...

Oh, sure, it's just a cold....with all those subSaharan diseases and parasites knocking around over there?

dizzblnd said...

Solution.. put Vin Diesel and Nick Cage as your only list and BOOM no more worries

Amanda said...

I suggest Wentworth Miller.

Beth said...

My *other* guy is Clint Eastwood. I love that man. Especially after I saw him singing in "Paint Your Wagon." That is the only man I could suggest.

Fragrant Liar said...

In my professional opinion, I think you should leave Edward Cullen to Liz and heart Jacob, aka, Taylor Lautner. I mean, he IS younger than you, but you like the younguns, so it could work. And have you seen the preview of New Moon? Seriously, that boy's got pecks of steel. I'm thinking other stuff of steel too. Just a suggestion.

Tom Selleck!!!

I need not say more.

lakeviewer said...

Just keep your options open. Life is too short to settle down to just one.

Beth said...

lakeviewer may be on to something! I need to add to my list!

Hit 40 said...

Poor Michel - she has caught another Sudan bug!! And, her favorite movie star turns out to be a one hit wonder. I shall help her out!! If your wondering, Darsden has gone awol on us to Virginia. Some crap about grand kids.

Otin - I think he could eat some cake off of my belly? Maybe a chocolate shot out of my navel??

Mo - I think a bacon and chocolate quiz?

Suburban - Way to scare me!!! You know that I am a hypochondriac. I am on WebMD now checking into parasites!!

dizzblnd - Good picks!! I will think about Van Diesel

Amanda - Hmm... Yummy

Beth - I thought Clint died?

Liar - OH YOU KNOW ME!!! I will think about Taylor Lautner.

Hit 40 - I do not do mustaches or older men!! You know better!

Lakeviewer - SETTLE?? The USG keeps moving me.

Well, I guess I have finally crossed over! You know when your getting older? When those abs of steel on those boys used to make you say "oooh He's hot! Well, when you go to look them up on Google (cause I had no clue who Taylor Lautner was), and you realize they are younger than your son, you say, "Oh, I bet his Mama's so proud of him." That's when the midlife crisis really slaps you in the face!

Pastor Sharon said...

Okay, I just read that post I left and clearly, I was projecting that onto "you" cause I don't want to face this older Mom age feeling that is creeping in. . . so there! Those 'yous' should have been 'I's.
At least choose someone who will love the old slippers, that is older than the legal age limit and well. . . those abs. . . yeah, get someone with abs!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

My "other" guys are John Cusack and Harry Smith. I know. I know.

Comedy Goddess said...

Top three: Clive Owen. Will Smith. Hugh Jackman.

GutsyWriter said...

So I'm new to your blog and Hit 40, told me to visit as I took the FSOT yesterday in LA. I don't think I did too well, but have no idea what to expect. I'd love to read more about what happened to you during the process. Is it on your blog? As far as Daniel Craig, although he has a great body, I can't stand his "pouty" lips. What's that all about?

rxBambi said...

Ummm, I did have Phil Mickelson, the golfer. He's really not as tubby as tv makes him look. But then husband said that was fine, he'd put Phils wife on his list. I did NOT like that at all. But now, wife has breast cancer and therefore I can not have her husband on my list.
I also had Mel Gibson for quite a while (Braveheart makes me hot) but he's a little too...tooo... well I don't know. But he doesn't quite do it for me anymore.
None of these YOUNGER guys cuz I am a little over 30. So...I don't know. Let me know when you have it figured out. I am lame. Need more wine.

Jason Statham. Or Hugh Laurie. If you want to continue the whole British Isles thing, that is. Sam Worthington is looking pretty hot in the new Terminator movie. I do like Hugh Jackman, too.
I don't know, I always go for the ones no one else really considers "sexy" (Christopher Eccleston from Dr. Who, anyone?) so I may not be the best to help pick... :)

In my book its stupid to bump Daniel for anybody. He is still the best choice around and if you didn´t like QOS, rewatch CR. MY suggestion.

Amanda said...

Oooh Hugh Laurie...
