I’ve been doing a lot of wonderful soul-searching the past few months and one thing I’ve become more certain of than ever is that I’ve never had sexual feelings for a woman. I suppose the remotest heterosexual thought I have encountered is, I wonder if a woman’s lips would feel any different than Chedner’s perfect ones. That said, none have ever really seemed all that “palatable.”
Based on talk like this (or of other girl parts) makes gay men sound like total misogynists incapable of finding beauty in any woman save their own mother. Well, not really. I just wanted to share this Calvin & Hobbes comic…
before transitioning into my point that I really love the women in my life. Emily, Jacqueline, and Serenity (among others) should know that I wish I had more time to spend with my best girls, and that they’ve not only been amazing examples but inspiration for many aspects of my life including humor, writing, and simply living.
In honor of them, and to balance out the gratuitous Man Harem posts (which I enjoy quite a bit), I christen a new series of posts for beautiful women I would die (figuratively speaking) to be friends with.
If you haven’t noticed, I have a bit of an Indie vein to my tastes. It’s no vena cava, but it’s there. As Indie girl poster child (imitated by many a Mormon mommy blogger) in my book, I’ve got to say her look, her voice, and her humor really hit that if-only-she-were-a-boy nerve. (May you all appreciate those hyperlinks).
Question: What more could the girl have going for her? A music career, movie roles (I must say that she saved Hitchhiker’s Guide from the abyss), a husband with musical talent, enormous (and well-managed bangs, etc. Answer: a new sitcom which will either be really good or really bad. Here’s the trailer for The New Girl:
Lately, I’ve just been craving a good “Just Friends” coffee date banter:
“Will Ferrell isn’t nearly as annoying in person.”
“Seriously? It’s hard to handle him in anything but Stranger than Fiction, IMO.”
“What about Elf?”
“…On a good day. I tease, I tease.”
“You watch it now….”
“Deal. Now please tell me kissing Joseph Gordon-Leavitt was underwhelming, so I can feel less jealous.”
