You do realize she's a cartoon — and way out of your league?


When I was working on the Collective schedule for January, I had this idea that we should write something philosophical our first week back, about our goals and dreams and wishes and failures and Boggarts and Patronuses (Patroni?) and whatever else. The Mirror of Erised. Desire. I think probably it was because I was going on Day 8 of this rambling pep talk I'd been giving myself about how I wasn't going to fall off the edge of the world into the pit of failure in 2011, and so I was feeling profound. (Also I was feeling Bridget Jones levels of neurotic.) But then I was like, "You know what? No. Let's talk about sex."

A long, long time ago we wrote about our lists of five. You know, our lists of five. The five people we want on our free pass shag ticket. But it's time to revisit that because I don't even think I'd watched Chuck when we made our lists last time. (GAME-CHANGER!)

I'm going with girls and boys. Fictional ones because I don't care so much about celebrities. (I blame Twitter for my disillusion with famous people. I don't care how gorgeous/talented you are; if you can't punctuate, STOP TALKING TO ME.)


1) Sarah Walker, Chuck

2) Gwen Cooper, Torchwood

3) Amy Pond, Doctor Who

4) Helen Stewart, Bad Girls

5) Nymphadora Tonks, Harry Potter

[Kat + Lupin // Me + Tonks]


Matt Bomer as 1) Bryce Larkin, Chuck and 2) Neal Caffrey, White Collar

3) The Doctor as played by David Tennant, Doctor Who

4) The Doctor as played by Matt Smith, Doctor Who

[There is just something about a Time Lord.]

5) Colin Firth, All The Things (Not fictional. Don't care. Yum, yum, yum forever.)

You know, when I started watching Doctor Who, I was convinced I would never like David Tennant because A) Barty Crouch, Jr and the tongue thing and B) I really liked Christopher Eccleston. But I have impure thoughts about him at least once a day.

And yes, Colin Firth. I will love him forever.

Heather Anne Hogan said...

I totally thought the same thing. I kept telling Jenn, "I'm never gonna think he's sexy 'cause he's so unhinged." WRONG.

All of your ladies have accents. You have an accent fetish.


Heather Anne Hogan said...

(Almost all of my dudes have accents too. I can't help it Britain is better.)

When The Collective does things like this, I'm so sad that I don't watch enough TV to fully appreciate the lists. HOWEVER: Colin Firth = yes, please!

Also (and almost totally unrelated), Smith got me the complete boxed set of Sports Night DVDs for Christmas and my life is forever changed.

Happy New Year!

Mmmmm, Firth. Anyone seen The King's Speech yet? I loved it.

Heather Anne Hogan said...

Shari, have you ever seen Sports Night? If not, you're in for a treat!


Guys, also, I just got an Amy Pond action figure and Gwen Cooper comic book in the mail from my friend Lynnie. BECAUSE SHE IS A PROPHET.

A list with Tonks and Firth = Yum.
