Meg's Top Ten Bloggy Crushes

I could do movies, I could do albums, I could do the top ten John Cusack quotes.  

But instead I did crushes. 

'Cause a blogger that prefers her fantasy life has lots of them.  

So just what qualifies one for Meg's bloggy crushes you say? Without getting too many Pretty Brides pissed off at me, all I'll say is that to make the list, you have to be a blogger with whom I'd like to spend the night with...

at an Irish Pub.  

Here they are in no particular order:

Brett Diggs was my first bloggy crush ever. He’s witty, he’s weird and when I found out he does charitable work, it was a done deal. And really, how many people can look that good upside down?

Muskrat – When I first started reading him I had one thought: too conservative. But then I saw that picture of him pissing on an IRS building and my inner rebel was instantly turned on.  I'm just trying not to let his new name "Father Muskrat" get in the way of my fantasies.

A Free Man – You know how they say women are attracted to men they see with babies at parks and other public places? Well, this guy posts pics of his beautiful son on his blog, and then every once in a while, you catch a glimpse of him in the pics and realize how attractive he is as well. But come on. Am I that shallow? 

Yes, but I still dig his love of indie music. For me that’s everything.

Heinous – His cowboy hat and soul patch make me melt. And the fact that he sometimes gives the finger to his out-of-control neighbors, well, I likes me a guy with chutzpah.

Doug at Taunt Vortex – The guy is so together, so nice, so solid, so reliable. Usually the type of blogger that drives me to read Boing Boing. But I think it has to do with the fact that he can write about selling his house or a plumbing problem and make it work. That’s what they call inner…something or another.

Chris Wood – He’s quite the polar opposite of Doug--but in a good way. You see, he’s a Brit. And because he’s a Brit, he has an accent. And an accent automatically qualifies one for Meg’s crushes. But more than that, the guy is dashing and thrilling and irreverent. Best of all, he has drinking contests with himself. And you know how I like my guys hoppy.

For a Different Kind of Girl – It’s hard to tell, but FADKOG looks like a sexy redhead. But what really gets to me her inner 13-year old boy named Seth who blurts out inappropriate things. I got me one of those, too. His name is Norm.

Immoral Matriarch – In addition to her luscious lips, this girl tells it like it is. Straight. No apologies. She’s the blogger I want to be when I grow up.

The Dude Formerly Known As Unfinished Ramblings – Unfinished Dude first contacted me many months ago with a suggestion on how to get my feed to work better. His advice didn’t work, which was lucky for him because he ended up beating the peace patches off me in the ratings--but he totally deserves it. He’s one funny, kind-hearted guy who has great taste in music and film. And the fact that he plays fantasy football mans him up just right.

Matt-Man – He smokes. He drinks. He wears an earring. He talks about his girlfriend’s monthly cycles and the size of his…. for lack of a better word, penis. All of these appeal to my inner 13-year, Norm. But the guy also has a solid knowledge of history and current events. This of course appeals to the peace patch-wearing part of me. 

VE – Several years ago when I was in between relationships the top criterion on my list was that the guy in my future have a sense of silly. This guy has a sense of silly. No one can write a commercial or Deck The Halls With Poison Ivy parody like he can. And though I can't get a close enough look at his picture here, I suspect that he’s got other attributes as well.

But what about Diesel you say?  

Yes, Diesel's funny; he's irreverent; he has an inner 13-year old living inside of him.  Yes, yes, I know.  But Diesel's blog has been nominated for best humor blog in the 2008 Weblog awards. He doesn't need anymore stokes at this time. What he does need are votes.  So cast yours for Mattress Police here.  You can vote daily.

You can find many of these fine bloggers at Humor-Blogs.

btw, if you're wondering why I have 11 on my top ten list, it's because top ten lists are so lame ( told you, that 13-year boy gets loose a lot).


Schmoop said...

Wow. I am quite honored and more than just a bit aroused. Thanks Meg. Here's to ya. Cheers!!

Michael from dadcation.com said...

Awesome! Several of my online mancrushes are in this post.

Meg said...

Matt-Matt & Muskrat - What I hear you both saying is that VE does it for you as well.

Unknown said...

Oh hey thank you! My ego is duly boosted. Here's to you!

And I'm not saying anything about VE, but FADKOG certainly has something (and not just Seth).

Chat Blanc said...

excellent line-up! I'd hit that. ;)

Ed said...

Ha! Wow, thanks for including little ol' me. ha ha. Ok, not so little then. Is that why people keep looking at my profile? I thought it was for witty prose.

for a different kind of girl said...

I will totally go out drinking with you, but I'm admitting up front that I'm worried about the trouble Seth and Norm are going to likely get into if we leave them unchecked. Seth thinks he's super cool, but really, he's gangly and annoying.

But damn I love that kid!

Thank you for sticking me in here between a bunch of great guys!

robkroese said...

The votes don't seem to be doing me much good. Can I get the other thing?

Meg said...

Chris - FADKOG does has a great sense of humor, I agree.

Chat Blanc - Yes, you know a good thing when you see it, I mean, read it.

VE - Yep. Just like I thought people were visiting Prefers Her Fantasy Life for my amusing stories.

FADKOG - I think those two 13-year olds could give us enough material for years.

María said...

I love men. And men heavily populate this list. Along with my favorite kind of girl, a different kind.

This is the best list ever.

Meg said...

Diesel - take your glasses off and we'll see.

Maria - Yes, well men...my crushes usually swing that way.

Suzie said...

Its funny i never really read guys bloggs. I feel so insocent

Anonymous said...

lol. Just what I need. Another check list of blogs to read. *sigh* Add a few more hours to the day and maybe. lol

MammaDucky said...

Just read your comment on Happy Meals and Happy Hour, and it make me squirt my water through my nose. Thanks.

Meg said...

Suzie - I never said I READ the guy blogs.

CableGirl - Once again, I never said I REAd the guy blogs.

MammaDucky - Thanks. It's good to be known for something other than stalking guy bloggers.

Michael from dadcation.com said...

Is this the pic you wish you'd included?


It's not too late.

Anonymous said...

New guy again: Those of you that wouldn't even do phone sex are getting pretty darn close here.... Be careful!


A Free Man said...

Wow, I blush. Terribly flattered to be included in this line-up with some proper rowrrrrr guys! Like Muskrat - he's hawt!

Anonymous said...

Like the others, I feel flattered to be included in this list, especially a list that starts with Brent Diggs and Diesel, two of my mentors (although they don't know it). Thank you for including me.

Brent Diggs said...

Sorry I'm late Meg but I had to...

-Woah. VE's here? And Diesel and Muskrat and Doug and a bunch of brand new friends?

I suddenly feel under-dressed...I knew I shouldn't have gone with the kilt.

Thank you for the honor, I have to go change now.

Meg said...

Father, I mean, Muskrat - The dick in the box photo will do. Thanks.

Dick - Welcome. You'll be sorely disappointed when I get back to blogging about my Teen driver.

A Free Man - Hey, great post today. Check it out everyone.

Unfinished - It was the story of you dancing that did it.

Brent- Brent, Brent, Brent--you know how much I love my Celtic rockers in kilts. Don't ever change.

Anonymous said...

I guess when one drops out of the blogosphere for a couple months, he becomes uncrushable.

My own fault.

Good post, otherwise. :)

Kirsten said...

Good choices! I have to admit I kinds have a crush on Heinous too! Don't tell him!

Rickey said...

Hey, Brent Diggs is still alive? Thanks for alerting Rickey to this development!

Meg said...

Jinksy - And you were so close to making it.

Kirsten - What? It's not like we publish these things or anything.

Rickey - You love Brent too? I know. I know. It's hard.

Petra a.k.a The Wise (*Young*) Mommy said...

Wow, thanks for the list of new hot dudes and ladies to check out, I think the only one on the list that I read is Heinous (and only cause he is my BFF). But I will put in a good word for ya, OK sweets?

Unknown said...

Thank you so much, meg! I am honored to be included with such paragons of manhood (other that the one case of fadkog-hood, of course.)

The first round is on me!

Anonymous said...

Peg: How's it hanging? Oops, I gave something away here, didn't I? Sorry about that! (Ignore that everyone. Things are getting interesting, aren't they?) Hand check!

Guess who?

PS Better come up with a new blog.

Anonymous said...

Brent is at the top of Chief's list, too. Um, not in a gay way, or anything.

Kevin McKeever said...

I may not be crush worthy, but I'm definitely available for parties and bar mitzvahs.


Anonymous said...

I'm not worthy!

But thanks for the attention. It's ironic isn't it, that just as soon as you call me solid and reliable, I disappear for a couple of weeks?

And as far as being "together", I actually feel "together" about 20 minutes each month. It's weird how you get that from my writing, but thanks anyways.

Ok, so I'm back now, but I'm really going to concentrate on being perhaps not so nice or solid.

Thanks again :)
