There's Just Something About You...

In the past month I've started watching the OWN Network. Y'know, the new Oprah Winfrey Network? I don't know if that's exactly a "lose your cool points" thing to admit but I like it! Oprah's All Stars. OWN Your Own Show. Enough Already. And, of course, The Dr. Phil Show three times a day. Yeah...Dr. Phil. You ever see a man who does not meet the conventional definition of handsome or sexy but there's just something about him that draws you anyway? That's what Phil McGraw does for me. It's not the full head of hair--obviously. *snicker* But that shoot-straight-from-the-hip talk. His intelligence. Sarcasm. It's...well...hot.

Other men who have made that "I can't quite put my finger on it..." list?

...James Gandolfini aka Tony Soprano. I think I may have a thing for men with receding hairlines. Let's face it. Tony Soprano was overweight. A cheating rat as well as a ruthless mobster. And yet..he had this charisma about him. Even as he filled out the "wife-beater" in a way Hanes just never intended, he captured my attention. Maybe the power? The accent? The really cool theme song? I can't quite figure it out...

...Bernie Mac. Yeah, yeah. I know he's dead but I still found him so attractive! The most handsome man? Uh...no. But his humor! The man made cursing sexy! I know women are wont to say, oh, he has such a nice personality. Code for, that man is a mud-duck! But in Bernie Mac's case, his personality really made him fine! Okay, maybe fine is too strong. But there was definitely something that drew me. I just can't quite...hmm...

...Sean Connery. This is more of a "take that!" to my sister. She can't see the sexiness that is Sean Connery. How can you not believe that he was the best James Bond, Nina?? Are you insane? I don't care how old he gets. Whether he's playing a convict, an international spy or a staid professor, the man is gaw-geous! That accent. The absolute coolness. Not to mention the smoothest, neatest facial hair a barber ever clipped. And have you seen him in a kilt?? *sigh*

...Vin Diesel. I don't know what it is about him. The tight, muscled physique. The clean-shaven head. The dark eyes. The deep, I-will-gladly-commit-sex-acts-illegal-in-forty-nine-states-for-you voice. Oh right! That's what it is! Aww come on! You know I had to add him in there! You were expecting it, admit it!

So who tops your "I don't know what it is..." list? I promise not to snicker and berate you to my computer screen. No. I promise. Really. Sorta. Kinda...

I totally know what you mean about some men, although Sean Connery lost major points in my book when I read a quote from him that it's okay to occasionally hit a woman to keep her in line - yes, really.
Now Vin Diesel - there's a bald man I could go for.

I had one of these moments just the other day! Totally random, but I've developed a crush on Matt Paxton, one of the trash removal experts they regularly use on Hoarders to get people's houses cleaned out. He seems so no-nonsense, and I like watching him get flustered, dealing with the hoarders' seemingly irrational tantrums.

Nooooo!! Wynter say it isn't so!! Aww damn. Well at least I still have Vin and James...

ROFL!!! I LOVE Hoarders!! Okay, now I have to really look at Matt Paxton! That's too funny! Personally, ANYONE who gets flustered and irritated at the hoarders irrational behavior is sexy in my book! LOL!

I'm with you on Vin. Not to mention the January Hottie, Jason Statham. I LOVE that man.
