When Desktop Backgrounds Attack

This is the photo that currently serves as backdrop to my very cluttered desktop. (You can click on it to enlarge the rapture.) The Boyfriend came up to me the other night and said. "Who is that on your desktop?" So I'm all "Jonathan Rhys-Meyers. Duh Velvet Goldmine... Match Point... You know. " And he says "Oh yeah, him."

[pause]

"Do you think he's prettier than me?"

And, I gotta tell you readers, I think it was a trick question. Because he hasn't spoken to me since.

i know!

btw, i met rhys-meyers in Los Angeles. he looked at me like he was going to eat me alive. stared me down. he's shorter and dirtier in real life. but it makes him sexier. i thought he was going to jump on top of me right there. that stare! in real life, you're powerless. i didn't even introduce myself i just stared at him.

not for any particular reason, i have scarlett looking out of the train from 'lost in translation'.

and schwarzenegger showed up at my campus randomly today. not as tall as i was expecting, but rather charming. (i'm an admirer for his films, not his political work mind you. and i had no problem going up to him and shaking his hand. the dude gave me some great moments from childhood.)

I made it all by my lonesome.

Am I the only one though who doesn't find Jonathan Rhys Meyers that good looking. Especially when he's doing his whole androgynous thing.

I'm not attracted to women, thank you. (omg i'm so mean)
