The Good Kind of Dorky

Food For Thought

Recently, Cece gave me this shiny award. Carrie totally objected to me getting the award because she doesn't think I deserve it, but of course we must keep in mind that she is from Oklahoma where a common pastime is noodling so I think it's safe to say that her judgement may be slightly impaired. I'm just saying. (hi carrie!)

What I appreciated most about the award was Cece's description of my blog. And I quote, "Lindsey at The Good Kind Of Dorky always has a mix bag of posts. She can make you laugh hard, like no one I know, and make you think just as hard." I loved this description not only because it was a huge compliment, but mostly because it made me say to myself, "this chick totally gets me and gets what my blog is all about." Thanks Cece! If you haven't checked out Cece's blog you should because it's a really hilarious and honest look at life from the perspective of a woman who wears many hats, so to speak, and doesn't take herself too seriously. Most importantly, this chick just knows how to have a good time. She's also really "random", which I love. (Okay, Cece, the check better be in the mail.)

Since I have been named a "thinking blogger," it is only fitting that I present to you something truly thought provoking.

When I was watching Desperate Housewives last night I got to thinking...if I, you know, had to bang (yes I just used the word bang, I'm 12 remember?) one of the men of DH, who would I choose? My head practically exploded from all of the thinking.

Let's start with a visual (of the men, not of my brains coming out)

I know there are other men on the show, but these are the main ones right now. It was difficult and a lot of thinking was involved, but I narrowed it down to two men. If I have to, I can narrow it to one, but then there goes the threesome. The point of all of this is to tell you that my conclusion frightened me and made me laugh. In my top two was Carlos, who has a striking resemblance to...

FREAKY, right????

So what does this tell us? For one, Edgar has a pretty good chance of getting laid. In general though, I guess this just means that I am attracted to dark manly men. Who is your favorite? Is your choice anything like your man in real life? (If you are a straight man, do this exercise using the women on the show)

Although I recognize that they are good looking, I didn't choose Ian, Tom or Orson because they are too pretty for my taste. I like to be the pretty one in the relationship. However, and I hope I'm not contradicting my theory, if I had to pick one and only one, I actually would have chosen Mike over Carlos in the end. I like Mike because he is manly, sexy and rugged--still keeping with my theory I would argue.

Okay, stop thinking so hard or you're going to hurt yourself. Leave the thinking to me, the thinking blogger.

In conclusion, Desperate Housewives actually holds the key to a better understanding of human nature, attraction and relationships. It is through this show that we can learn things previously unknown to mankind. And thus, I submit my nomination for Nobel Peace Prize. One can nominate oneself, right?

    You're lucky. Know who AS most resembles?

    Jay Lefkowitz, former advisor to President Bush. Wikipedia him.

    Congratulations on your BIG AWARD... you make me laugh (and think), too!

    I'd go Mike. I like the chiselled look he has... haha. ;)

    (But if I could pick away from DH, I'd pick Jesse Bradford. And guess who JASE looks like?)


    Congrats on your award, you thinking blogger, you!

    Mike. No question.
    I mean he's HOT!

    (Oh I don't watch the show but I'm just going from pictures)

    Plus. Tom is out of the question because well the whole he played a Gay man on Melrose Place and I just can't get that out of my head.

    Tim most looks like the evil character "Syndrome" from the movie The Incredibles.

    Google it. I swear.
    Sad huh?

    Oh and I forgot.
    I saw noodling and cracked up.
    because of course i am also 12 years old

    Hmmm, tough choices. Especially since I have never seen the show (no Cable) and don't know what their personalities are like. Based on looks, I'd go with Mike or Tom. The scary thing is, Tom sorta resembles my husband.

    I don't have my camera with me, but I'll post his picture up tomorrow next to the picture of Tom on my own blog. Then you can see what you think.

    Oh you are in so much trouble for that one missy. LOL You evil little thing, you!

    It is hard to look at a picture and pick. It is all about body language to me. Even pretty guys that I like have to show me something. I have never watched the show so I can't tell anything about any of them. I guess if I had to, it would be Mike but I would have to fatten him up a bit.

    Mike hands down. He doesn't look like Poppy though does he. Of the DH guys I think Poppy resembles Ian most in looks. Interesting that, in the end, you chose Mike over Carlos. Hmmm.... (I'm just saying) :-P

    Mike. Hands down. Rrrowrr! None of them look like my husband, for the record.

    It's so clearly because his name is mike.

  • At 3:36 PM, Blogger Cece said…

    Aww, you're so sweet! I seriously *get* you.

    Dude, I'd TOTALLY do Carlos. He is fricken HOT. Then again, it could very well be my attraction to Latino men. *wink*

    Mmm, yeah, I'll second the vote for Mike. Oh, so yummy!

    But I'd also do Carlos. Hell, I'll wrestle Cece for him. Oh wait. Maybe not. Mister would sit down, twist open and MGD and turn on the no wrestling. LMFAO!

  • At 3:04 AM, Blogger Cece said…

    LMAO! Oh man, Mind knows Mister very well, I tell you. Scary even.

    I have to go with Mike. I'd like to think he resembles Jonathan but that isn't why I picked him...he's so TORTURED. MMMM, I could fix that.
