I need a new honey

I was sixteen years old. We had just moved to Massachusetts from my hometown in Arkansas. To cheer me up, my mom thought she'd take me to this movie everyone was raving about. That movie was Top Gun and it changed my life!! That smile, that arrogant charm made me a believer. I started a serious crush on Tom Cruise that lasted decades. When I met hubby, everyone teased him that he'd come 2nd in my heart. When he was in Memphis filming The Firm, I tried stalking him (don't worry, we did live in Memphis and I never could find him). Then, the unthinkable happened. Tom Cruise made public his weirdness. I laughed off what I could, but it became too much, even for me. Hubby says, "Finally, after almost 20 years, I made it to the top." He knew if he waited long enough, he'd become 1st in my heart. Everyone is in shock. I am too. I am over Tom. Of course, I'm now without a fantasy honey. I can't think of anyone to replace Mr. Tom Cruise. I can think of a lot of hotties, but not one to be a honey. Does this mean I've grown-up? I hope not.

Amen on the strangeness of Tom Cruise! I totally agree with you. We watched Dawson's Creek and it has a totally new "spin" on it now with Katie Holmes. I'll try to think of some other hotties for you and keep you posted.

Thank you so much for helping me in my quest, Melissa! :)

You know what the kicker (& it was a hard kick too) was? On Lamb's kids aol homepage, they had a list of the ugliest celebrities (how rude). Tom Cruise made the list for his psycho-ness! ACH!! That hurt.

I have to agree on the strangeness of Tom! His interview with Matt Lauer did it for me! What about Clive for your new honey? I mean,I guess I could share him!Oh the beautifull-ness of that man!

Lisa!!! Welcome!! Yeah, that Matt Lauer interview was pretty undefendable. And nasty.
I can't believe you'd be willing to share Clive!

Melissa, Clive Owen is Lisa's honey. He is quite the looker!

D,
Speaking of Matt Lauer...He's my former honey! Here's another idea...Anderson Cooper! I don't know what it is about those news guys!

Lisa, I ADORE Anderson Cooper. He was the host of this show we used to love, The Mole. His wit and looks had me hooked. Sadly, he will never adore me.

D,

Don't be so sure!! How could he not like you...after all, you probably had his mom's name plastered across the back pocket of your jeans in jr. high! Good ol' Gloria Vanderbilt! O.K. now I'm showing my age...

LOL!!! I did have his mom's name plastered across my back pocket and the swan on the front pocket! But, back to Anderson, the rumor is that he plays for the other team. :( Of course, HE'S never stated one way or the other, to my knowledge.

I know, I know...but a girl can stay in denial, can't she??? Maybe I can just be his beard? Hee!

Denial? Yes, denial works quite well for me. ;)
