The man is sexy with a capital SSSSSSS. (Insert "sizzle" sound.) Oh my goodness, he makes my heart go flip and flop and pitter and patter. He's "hot-to-trot" as the The Drover. He's smokin' as Wolverine. He's sexy when he's hosting the Oscars. He's even "easy on the eyes" in that cornball flick, "Kate and Leopold"...which was not my favorite, by the way. (Brief side note: What happened to Meg Ryan's hair in that movie?!)
I can't mention "Hunky Hugh" without sharing a memorable and hilarious dream I once had. It was time for my annual exam with my gynecologist. When I arrived at the women's center, the receptionist informed me that my doctor would not be able to see me, due to an emergency cesarean at the hospital. She said, "Our other doctor is available, if you'd like to keep your appointment." I opted to stay.
I was ushered into an exam room, where I promptly stripped, put on a drafty hospital gown, and attempted to drape the paper sheet (the size of a dish towel) across my lap. (Why are those stupid things always so small?!) I plopped my bare patootie onto the tissue-covered table and waited.
Suddenly, there was a staccato knock-knock-knock at the door. It was flung open, and Hugh Jackman walked gallantly in. He wore a white lab coat and a stethoscope. He smiled beautifully and said in his dreamy accent, "Hi there! I'm the doctor!"
My jaw dropped to my naked knees! I jumped off the examination table and sprinted through the door. Nurses started chasing me down the hall, yelling, "Ma'am! Ma'am! Where are you going? Come back! You can't just leave! You have an appointment!" I kept running--hospital gown flapping. A couple of nurses caught up to me and tried to take me back to my room. I held my ground and forcefully said, "No! Oh no, no, no, no! No way! There is NO WAY I'm going through with it. HE IS JUST TOO GOOD LOOKING."
Then I woke up.
Naturally, I had always assumed that Hugh Jackman would occupy the "favorite Aussie" spot in my heart... But then I met Kerry.
Ain't she purty? Kerry is an Australian mum to three beautiful kangaroos....uh, I mean, children. We "met" each other in the great, vast "blogosphere" and quickly connected. Her blog, "It's The Little Things..." is delightful, honest, and always enjoyable to read. Kerry has been wonderfully supportive of me, and a good friend. Her comments are kind, her humor is infectious, and her heart is as big as "the land down under" that she hails from.
And speaking of a big heart...that Aussie mum sent me a parcel of chocolate and sweet treats. (She knows I have a wicked sweet tooth.) Her thoughtful gift was waiting for me in my mailbox yesterday!
|I will NOT be sharing any of this stuff! HA HA!|
Kerry also gave me a couple of cards; one had pictures of her lovely family in it. As you can see, I put her picture on my fridge. I place special mementos and things that I love on my fridge: cards from cherished friends, humorous magnets, preschool crafts, pictures of people who matter to me.
I'm grateful for Kerry, for being so generous and nice, and for making me feel like a worthwhile "blogger" and person. I'm grateful for Hugh Jackman, for NOT being my gynecologist! He can continue being my ultimate, "number one" celebrity crush. Kerry can be my favorite Aussie. No contest.
(Hmm...I think I'll eat those red frogs first!)
