Crushables Update

Two long-standing mini-crushes I've been watching a bit of lately (on SNL and Ugly Betty):




Clearly, I have a bit of a thing for cute-nerds. I think Henry Grubstick's uptight accountant personality would grate on me after a while, but I find his nerdy, honest simplicity very endearing. Seth Meyer's dimply snark on the weekend update makes me grin with delight and shake my head at how taken I am with him.


Two new mini-crushes I've just discovered in the last week on The Doctors and Dead Like Me:




The latter clearly fits into my tendency towards a certain "type" with his slightly awkward appearance and quirky personality, but the doctor kind of breaks from that. Every once in a while, I'm a bit smitten by an all american jockish type if he seems like a nice and fairly intelligent guy and has cute expressions and a pretty lean build.



This last one isn't as much a crush as a heart-rate enhancer or somewhat of a knuckle-biter, primarily because of the only context I've seen him in, but I would probably look twice if I saw him walking down the street, unless he seemed cocky, in which case I'd roll my eyes and move on because I do that. Regardless, I certainly keep watching the same 4 1/2 minutes with guilty relish:




Happy Friday! I'm off to enjoy the sun and fresh air!

I must agree with you on Mr. Grubstick. My favorite episodes of that show remain the bridge episodes between seasons one and two. I really appreciate his nerdy vibe and his shyness.

(I've also taken to BJ Novak on 'The Office' since he started wearing glasses).

I think we have the same type...!

Though I may delve further into nerd-dom... 'cause I crush on Sheldon from Big Bang Theory, too.

Eeewwww, the last guy is creepy.

What's odd to me, O-mo, is that they all remind me of you...

GMB, BJ always fell short of being squarely in the "crushable" camp, but the glasses have certainly increased his appeal...

Amber, after looking him up, I remember seeing a scene from that show, and though I can see some crushability there...let's just say yes, you delve further. :-)

Lee, there's a sleaze factor for sure, but in the video...oh man...

Kengo, am I showing signs of narcissism? ;-)
