7 Celebrity Crushes (I don't know if they're really crushes since I had to look up the names of three of the actresses).

People I Want To Do This List
If there are seven of you who’d like your name to be here, let me know. Otherwise, I’ll not play by the rules. (it wouldn't be right if I didn't break at least one rule)


  1. Nice list! ;)
    I want to attend that inauguration also! Save me a seat please.


  2. Great list. I do not recognize most of the names on your *ladies* list, but those that I do, quite ecclectic.

    Michele sent me.

  3. And here I though I was your celebrity crush all this time! ;)

  4. Hey Chana, you might make it yet.

    Who should get the boot? Joan of Arc, Vernoica Lake and Sylvia Plath (I mistakenly wrote Platt) are all dead... Joan is desirable because she was so pure and that armor and chain mail did something for her. Vernonica Lake is one of my all time favorite actresses. Sylvia Plath wrote haunting poetry.

    So, how do you lookin chain mail and how are your poetic skills?

    I might could slip you in for Monica Bellucci since she's Italian... But she was hot in Melena--which is a wonderful movie.

    But I think I'll trade in Ali McGraw, she's way past her prime--she was hot when I was a kid. I love her with Steve McQueen in The Getaway.

    Okay, you get Ali's spot.

  5. Yay - you did it! Fiddler on the Roof, eh? An excellent idea!

  6. OMG! You did it for real! lol
    I am so honored!
