love, Nineteen

My Sexy Ten


Benicio del Toro1. Benicio del Toro is even sexy as a heroine addict in Things We Lost In The Fire. I love his furled brow and his strong gaze and the way he holds his mouth when he thinks, but most of all I love his full name:

Benicio Monserrate Rafael Del Toro Sanchez

Oh la la.

john mayer

2. John Mayer. Everyone knows how I feel about this fella…. not much more to be said except for I need to do everything in my power to try and get to Boston in a month.

Steven Colbert

3. Steven Colbert is truly fearless. He has every right to his arrogance because he really is as amazing as he believes himself to be. If you don’t believe me, watch part one of his speech at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner.

4. Smart, good looking, articulate, clean… who wouldn’t want this man, lover, President, or otherwise?

Barack Obama Black and White

I want his babies.

5&6. Just to clarify, it’s JEmaine, not JERmaine. Yes, I want he and Bret’s collective babies. Though if I had to choose one it’d be Bret. I know, there might seem to be a trend in my choice of tall, dark and handsome men but of course I can never be predictable. That said, I love Bret’s boyish, perhaps slightly elfish face and small frame. But really, it’s his occasional facial hair and moppy head that gets me– and I’m not usually one for the scruffiness.

Bret McKenzie

8. Have I mentioned my love for E.E. Cummings in the past? Perhaps. Anyway, he’s perfect feel, like Impressionism. Abstract and created without rules, just emotion. He’s raw and edgy but sexy and soft at the same time. Like handcuffs. Just hear these lines and try to appreciate :

e.e. cummings

Humanity i love you 
because you would 
rather black the boots of
success than enquire whose 
soul dangles from his
watch-chain which would 
be embarrassing for both
parties and because you
unflinchingly applaud all
songs containing the words 
country home and mother 
when sung at the old howard
Humanity i love you because
when you're hard up you pawn your
intelligence to buy a drink and when
you're flush your pride keeps
you from the pawn shop and
because you are continually 
committing nuisances but more
especially in your own house

Humanity i love you because you
are perpetually putting the secret of
lifer in your pants and forgetting
it's there and sitting down
on it
and because you are
always making poems in the lap
of death Humanity

i hate you

9. Heath Ledger

  2. Dear Erika, Are you back on line with your new computer. I had a fine time in Sonoma last week except it was 103 and the dogs would have perished if your Mom had not lent me her van so I could leave them in my air conditioned van. Anyway give me a call and lets ketchup. Love you sweetpea, Grandma
