I missed my friend's blog fest earlier this week.
I tried to get my act together but it didn't happen. But it wasn't until I saw all the other posts in the fest that I realized how badly I wanted to play, too. So, here's my entry, direct from Las Vegas, for The Teenage Heartthrob Blogfest, hosted by Sarah, Vic, and Emily. (I reserve the right to blame dehydration for any poor choices below...)
Heartthrob #1: Christian Slater
Hands down, number one on my list. Gleaming the Cube, Heathers, Pump Up the Volume, Robin Hood: Prince of Theives... I've seen them all. J'adore Christian Slater. That is all. I'd say more, but I'm having a moment...
Fun fact! Yours truly shares a birthday with Heartthrobs 1 and 2! Ergo, I assumed it was fate that I'd end up with one. Seeing how the next one is now deceased, my hopes like solely with Christian Slater. *fingers crossed*
Heartthrob #1: Johnny Castle Patrick Swayze
Yes, there are two number one pics. Sue me. How's a girl supposed to choose between Christian Slater and Patrick Swayze? Yes, I watched North and South JUST for him. And wore out my VHS version of Dirty Dancing. Most women dreamed of being Baby in the final dance number of Dirty Dancing. It was especially painful for me seeing as I was at least a good foot taller than any boy in my class when the movie came out. I'd never get to do the run and jump... :( If you have a second, check out the YouTube video of Swayze and Chris Farley as Chippendales dancers and prepare to piss yourself laughing. You're welcome. :)
Heartthrob #3: Corey Feldman
Who was hotter--Corey Feldman or Corey Haim? I was CEMENTED in Camp Feldman. Stand By Me, The Goonies, License to Drive, The Lost Boys... but my fave was Dream a Little Dream. 'Stars shining right above me...' Random CF facts: did you know he was the voice of young Copper in Fox and the Hound? Did you also know he was the voice of Donatello in TMNT 2 and 3?
Heartthrob #4: Slash
Hi. My name is Tricia and I have a thing for rockstar men in leather pants. Preferably without their shirts on. And yes, I had a poster of Slash on my wall, complete with top hat, half-empty bottle of Jack Daniels, and cigarettes. My mom so badly wanted me to replace it with a NKOTB poster, but I couldn't do it. I was a rock n' roll girl.
Heartthrob #5: Michael Trucco
Um, did anyone else watch Pensacola: Wings of Gold, or was this just me? I watched this short lived series for one reason: Lt. Tucker Henry, aka Spoon. But the show went away and I grew up, soon forgetting about this total hot pocket until lo and behold, I was watching Battlestar Galactica and who should appear on my screen? SPOON! I squealed and had a total all-out girl moment. I mean, really. Just look at him!
Heartthrob #6: Richard Dean Anderson
Arguably the one of the best mullets of all time, this guy was the ULTIMATE camper. Duct tape, q-tip, and piece of chewing gum and Boom! Automatic bomb-diffusion device. Part smarts and part bad ass made for one of my earliest crushes. But trust me--don't look for recent pics. Remember him like this or from Stargate.
Heartthrob #7: Keanu Reeves
The Bill and Ted movies were my favorites! *crosses fingers for a B&T3* Alas, he should've stuck to comedy because I can't take him serious (Matrix or not) in anything else. Party on!
Honorable mention: David Hasselhoff
It pains me to put him on here because he is such a hot, hot mess. But if I put Slash, I have to give David Hasselhoff honorable mention. NOT the Baywatch years (though he wasn't too bad), and certainly NOT anything since 2000, but old school Knight Rider Hasselhoff. Go ahead, hassle me. HA!
