John Cusack can eat crackers in my bed . . .


Now that the Dr. isn't around, I don't sleep as well at night. Empty bed is not so much fun. So I tend to be a TV movie hound . . . staying up and watching whatever is on TNT or whatever channels play those movies that were out 3-7 years ago.

Tonight I watched Serendipity with John Cusack, Jeremy Pivens, and others. As usual, John Cusack plays that average-Joe kinda guy who eventually gets the girl, but not without a lot of pain and agony in between. Total chick-flick, but I liked the movie. He has clearly found his romantic niche - just at the end, when you think all hope is lost, and the girl shows up . . . it was the same feeling I got when I watched him standing on the girl's lawn in "Say Anything" holding that boombox above his head. I just wanted to shout "If you don't take him right now, I will!" There's just something about that man that I find attractive. He's captured the "slightly-vulnerable, cute in a puppy-dog kinda way, but photographs well, want to take him home and take care of him" thing. Its hot.

Him and Edward Norton. Seems like every time I see one of those guys in a movie, I think, "You know, he's kind of hot in an unexpected way." Edward Norton kinda cinched it somewhere between American History X (the dude was smoking hot in a bad-boy way) and that movie with Ben Stiller where he's a priest and falls for Jenna Elfman (Keeping the Faith).

Neither of them has made the "list" yet (topic for another day), but I'll watch them and sigh, any day . . .

'Night all!

It only took you 5 posts to start talking about other men. I've been gone for less than a month, and it's come to this?

LOL - in case your readers are wondering how I'm taking this, rest easy. I've known about these "other guys" for some time now. Ask her about James Spader if you get the chance (pre Boston Legal, I'm pretty sure).

Ahh if she likes James Spader and John Cusack. She must love the movie "True Colors"

Does "The Wife?"

You know, I think I watched it eons ago and don't have a good memory. But I just looked it up on IMDB - that's when Spader was hot like he was in "Sex, Lies and Video Tape". With the Dr. gone, I might have to watch it again!

Thanks for the tip, Sean!

Great writing style keep it up. Really enjoy reading even if there is barely any card slinging going on.

Raising 56 s000ted in MP is perfectly legitimate do not let anyone tell you otherwise.

I also have to give 5 stars to Sean's desperate Au Pair comments.. I am keeping my Au Pair out of any future blog posts in case Sean is reading.

I also do not understand Dr. Chako's comment.. is he saying he has a crush on James Spader? I mean that is ok.. and stuff.. hehe, just kidding..

My guilty pleasure is Chris Noth, AKA "Mr. Big" from Sex and the City. Oh, and Kevin Costner, and Bruce Willis, and Harrison Ford and Blair Underwood...

Oh, Mrs. Chako,
I cannot imagine how tough some of your nights get. When Otis is in Vegas for the summer for the WSOP, I barely sleep at all. And he's just in Vegas. I can't imagine how I'd do if he were in the situation Dr. Chako is in. Both of you will be in our thoughts.
