Over the holidays, Matthew and I gave ourselves a task.  Our mission, should we choose to accept it, was to actually watch some movies. Our combined average is to watch a movie…every three months or so. We needed to up our game.

Matthew picked up The Dark Night and I was utterly and completely enthralled. The acting was amazing, yes, but I was also wiping drool off of my chin thanks to the sheer hotness of Christian Bale.

Um. Yum.

It is no secret that Matthew and I have no problem with celebrity crushes. Almost a year ago, we had the conversation about who our “Top Three” would be (ala Friends). But you people pointed out that is was a top five list. Two more! It has also been an entire year, and I am fickle, so…

I asked Honey who his top five were. Google was required to make sure that the list was absolutely perfect, and here is what he came up with (In no particular order. He wanted to make sure I clarified that):

1. Jessica Alba
2. Angelina Jolie
3. Charlize Theron
4. Megan Fox
5. Tina Fey (Yes, Tina Fey.  We have just finished watching the first season of 30 Rock and he’s got a crush on Liz Lemon)

Wow.  Not sure if I can top that, but I plan to go down in a blaze of glory.

1. Christian Bale
2. Josh Duhamel
3. Jake Gyllenhaal
4. Hugh Jackman
5. Matthew Fox (LOST starts up soon.  Yessssss)

This list is not laminated. Like I said, I am fickle.

While pondering this here post, blog crushes came to mind.  For I have those, you know.  Crushes of the Internet variety. I do not read many blogs written by the other species gender, but there is one that makes the list.  I will complete the list with four of the other sites that I jump to read upon seeing that there is a new post.

1. Dad Gone Mad. I had no idea he even existed until this past summer (I KNOW. Am clueless.)
2. Better Now. Kristin’s innate gift for writing inspires me to be better. I have had the pleasure of hanging out with her a number of times and can tell you this: she is even cooler in person. Seriously.
3. All & Sundry. I have been stalking reading Linda for years. I spent time with her at BlogHer and can testify that she is all sorts of awesome.
4. Miss Ali Martell. There is not a post that goes by where we do not email each other with “ME TOO!” She is my twin, apart from the fact that she is wee and blond. She also sent Miss Emily a box of Isabella’s clothes, so she is extra awesome.
5. Kristabella. Another Kristin, but a whole new ball game (Ha! Fitting). She cracks me up on a regular basis.

There are so many other blogs that I could mention, but that would be cheating, don’t you think? Heh.

I should add that I have nominated most of the above for the 2009 Bloggies.  Have you nominated your favorites yet? Time is running out…

I’d love to have a shot at it, as well as stand alongside those above. You have to nominate three blogs in whatever category you’re choosing, so the love gets spread around. Finalists are determined by how many nominations they get. Go! Nominate!

Now it’s your turn to share. Do you have any Internet crushes? Celebrity crushes? Internet celebrity crushes? Please dish.

    I’ve done the nominating thing – it may have included you ;)

    Internet crushes, yes, I have them, but my TOP FIVE is more scandalous. It includes men that are more than twice my age. Mmm.

    I need to get my nomination on. There are a lot of good blogs out there. Thanks for the linkage! ;-)

    The thing about Christian Bale in the Batman movies is that he makes his voice sound so low and scratchy that it utterly distracts and annoys me. Other than that, he’s yummy. Heh.

    I nominated you for best photography/canadian a week or so ago.

    Jake Gyllenhaal is quickly becoming my new love. I just LOVE how as old as he is, as hot as he is, as beareded and scruffy and whatever as he is, he can still look at you with those big blue eyes or say something in that sweet, soft voice and make you think you’re totally corrupting him. And that’s HOT. Because I know that the one time he stops being so innocent it’ll be like him breaking out of his shell for the first time and that’ll be HOT too. And now I’m just going to shut up now…

    Shawn has a major crush on Tina Fey too – it’s funny. Usually he goes for super sexy blondes; it’s nice to know he can appreciate an intelligent brunette as well :)

    My laminated list (which is always changing so I should probably stop calling it laminated) is:
    David Usher (what can I say – I love musicians)
    Owen Wilson (because I love his crooked nose)
    Craig Ferguson (because he’s old and pervy and Scottish)
    John Krasinski (because I love his nerdy ears)
    Orlando Blood (because yum – just yum)

    I think my husband also crushes on Liz Lemon. We watched all of season one and half of season two in the last month, and he regularly comes out with “she’s awesome”

    I kind of have to agree.

    I too, have a crush on Liz Lemon.

    And Liz Lemon is fabulous!

    2. Nicholas Cage (Con Air/long hair/ripped shirt styles)
    3. Rob Thomas

    5. ?? (a current opening, so to speak … I am currently on the lookout for the perfect addition to my list … haven’t found him yet)

    Never really considered “internet crushes” … I love all the blogs I read, that’s why I read them!

    I have many celebrity crushes but one that always makes my list is John Stamos.

  29. jonniker January 6, 2009 8:29 am edit

    Uh, Gary Oldman, I KNOW. We’ve discussed. But also, Milo Ventimiglia, who I suspect is a giant douchebag, but is delicious nonetheless.

    (Also, Kristabella fucking KILLS me. KILLS. As do all the other ladies you mentioned. And you.)

  30. Meg January 6, 2009 12:55 pm edit

    Sorry, I hate to be a bitch but it’s The Dark KNIGHT.
    1. My future husband and father of my as-yet unconceived triplets, Neil Young (yes, he’s older than my dad. But his voice makes me melt. (Yes, I know, he can’t sing.)).
    2. Brad Pitt-just cuz he’s sexy
    3. Orlando Bloom as Legolas-just cuz I have this thing for elves!
    4. Shia Labeouf-how can you not enjoy someone that hot whose name means Gift of the Gods the Beef???
    5. Edward Norton, circa American History X-something about that 6-pack just gets me!

    Matthew’s got MY female celebrity “crushes” (not really CRUSHES so much as I just think they’re really pretty) right on… except Angelina. tsk tsk, Matthew:)
    Sure she’s beautiful, and she donates time & money to people who need it…. but I just can’t help it. I’m all for team Aniston here. There just ain’t no ands, ifs or buts about it… Angelina’s a homewrecker. Gorgeous or not, homewreckers don’t go on my list.

    Would he be interested in swapping her with Kate Beckinsale? Or perhaps Heidi Klum?! :)
