The Not Hot V-Day Survey

Happy Valentines Day to those who acknowledge the holiday. Hubz and I agreed not to make a big thing out of it since neither of us ever feels like racing around at the last minute to buy teddy bears, flowers and candy for each other. I did get my daughter a pair of socks with pink hearts all over them and a little heart stamp that lights up. But she's five, easy to please and fun to shop for. I doubt I'd get the same enthusiastic response from Hubz about such trinkets.

So anyway... I was thinking it's time to let our hair down and have a little fun. Are you in?

Today's assignment is to share with us your not-hot crushes. What celeb or public figure do you have the hots for that would never be a candidate for People magazine's "50 Most Beautiful People" issue? Who are you crushing on that you know would be considered odd or found downright inexplicable by most people?

Also, I'd like to take a minute to welcome my new renter "Occasional Melancholia". I perused her blog a bit last night and it's good stuff. Click the sidebar link to drop by her place and see for yourself :-)

Okay! Get thinking on your not-hot submissions*. Guys are welcome to play, too!

*The only rule is the you can't make fun of anyone else's submissions.


  • Okay - I need to think about this one. More coffee needed.

  • Mo Rocca. I'm pretty sure he's gay. But there's something about him...

  • Dawn, you are not alone! I also have a thing for Mo Rocca! Even his slightly nasal voice is strangely appealing.

  • Here are mine. There may be more that I've forgotten about:

    Bob Geldof
    John Malkovich
    Edward Norton

    You can stop laughing now :-p

  • MO ROCCAAAAA?????????????????? whaaaaaa?

    Okay, Ed Norton is not that bad - but Bob Geldof - you might as well have said Mick Jagger LOL

    I like the old Sean Connery - and I kind of like Kevin James (you know - King of Queens). I'll have to think more on this though...

  • Stephen Colbert?

    By Blogger DeAnn, at 2/14/2006 11:07:00 PM  

  • Deann:

    I recognized the name but couldn't recall what he looked like so I googled him and I totally know who he is. Good one!

  • Steve Martin...yep.

    Great blog btw...


    By Blogger Kris, at 2/14/2006 11:36:00 PM  

  • Do I really have to admit this?

    Christopher Walken. Something about that dry weird voice sends shivers up my spine. I might have to close my eyes, though.

    When I was in high school it was Eric Idle. Can you say "Major Nerd Girl"?

  • Sue: I like his voice, too. I also like Edward Norton's voice a lot. Maybe I should start a new category..."Voices You Want to Shag"

  • kris, my first thought was Steve Martin too. funny is hot :)

    By Blogger Michelle, at 2/15/2006 08:22:00 AM  

  • Harvey Keitel (especially in The Piano). Also, Willem Dafoe in Platoon.

    This is probably a sign my eyeglasses prescription isn't strong enough.

    By Blogger Jess Riley, at 2/15/2006 04:06:00 PM  

  • The results are so far:

    Willem Dafoe
    Steve Martin (2)

  • Get ready to laugh your asses off:

    Penn Jillette and Tim Russert

    I'm not kidding. I love both of them.

    By Blogger mothergoosemouse, at 2/16/2006 12:14:00 AM  

  • Hey I love your site :-) This is an awesome post.

    Okay, here's my incredibly geeky submissions:

    George Will (what can I say, I have a thing for bow ties)

    Tom Wolfe (oooh ... the white suit)

    Hal Holbrook (yup, the really old guy)

    I'm glad you said in your post that ppl can't make fun of others' submissions, b/c I'd make fun of my own if it was allowed.

    By Blogger MrsFortune, at 2/16/2006 08:25:00 AM  


    Okay, just restating. Not making fun. At all. One bit. No.

  • ps I still can't believe MO ROCCA has TWO F'n votes.

    By Anonymous Kristen, at 2/17/2006 01:13:00 PM  

  • We're still waiting to see your list, missy.

    *tapping toe and looking sternly*

    Sean Connery was disqualified and you weren't solid on Kevin James. So ante up!

    By Blogger IzzyMom, at 2/17/2006 01:19:00 PM  

  • Okay, mine's Marishka Hargitay. But mainly when she had really short fuck-off hair in SVU. I know she's pregnant so it's sort of gross to have a girl crush on a pregnant lady but I find her sexy.

    By Blogger Stefanie, at 2/17/2006 04:56:00 PM  

  • lololol @ short fuck-off hair. I never thought of it like that before!
