Dude Response Friday

ETA: So I guess I’m not the only one who likes the idea of guys responding to what their ladies have to say on Girl Talk Thursday. I’ve never been the catalyst for something someone designed an Internet badge for before. I feel pretty cool right now:

Yesterday Lisa participated in Girl Talk Thursday with her List of Five. Turnabout is, as always, fair play, so here I’m offering my own list. It’s a list of the moment, of course–a list that evolves continually. I think back to the (gorgeous) women who were on it five or so years ago, and they’ve done things like party so hard that they had the face of a thirty-year-old when they were still nineteen, or done something really creepy like marry Tom Cruise.

So just to sum up? The list remains totally fluid.

Oh, and also–because I’m a giver, Lisa can totally consider herself welcome to my list as well as hers. If she has the opportunity to get it on with anyone on this list, she doesn’t need to feel guilty at all about taking it.

So here they are, alphabetically by first name (because you can’t have a list like this without some sort of order):


Georgia Moffett

Georgia Moffet played the title character in “The Doctor’s Daughter” episode of Doctor Who, and man, cute–as–a–button. Just look at that smile. And those eyes. She’s the sort of girl you’re scrambling to help fix whatever problem she’s having.


Mila Kunis

Long, long ago, an Internet test picked out That ’70s Show’s Mila Kunis as my physically perfect girl. And who am I to argue with Internet tests?


I’ve already talked–probably with a touch too much specificity–about my crush on Millie Clode, my favourite Sky Sports News presenter. But as I was searching for pictures of her, I couldn’t find any I was really happy with. (I’ve had this problem with several of the women on this list, and Lisa had the same problem for her post, but with Millie it was particularly pronounced.) I came to the conclusion that this is because her sexiness lies in her onscreen attitude, in the way you feel like she’s flirting just with you as she addresses the camera, and a still image can’t capture that. Diane proposed the solution, a video. This is the best one I could find on youtube; I do recommend watching the HQ version. (If you’re reading on Facebook, you can see the embedded video at the original post.)


Morena Baccarin

I don’t know what there is to say about Morena Baccarin except … wow. Loved her ever since Firefly. I’m a bit leery about the upcoming remake of V, though, given the haircut she’s wearing.


Natalie Dormer

I first saw Natalie Dormer in the Heath Ledger Casanova movie a few years ago, and instantly fell in love. Since then, of course, she’s become far more famous playing Anne Boleyn in The Tudors. For that role she went brunette, and while this didn’t dampen my ardour nearly as much as Jessica Alba’s move in the opposite direction, I still think she’s at her most indefensibly bewitching as a blonde.


Vanessa Carlton

Vanessa Carlton is one of my favourite singers, and it’s a lucky thing. It would really suck being complete putty in her hands if her music sucked.

Honorable mention

Jessica Alba. A few years ago would have been the first name on the list. The thing about Jessica Alba is, as a brunette I think she’s stunningly hot. But when she went blonde for Fantastic Four, all of a sudden she just … didn’t capture my interest in the same way before. Not that I’d be able to resist for a heartbeat (or even string a sentence together) if I walked into my bedroom and found this waiting for me (link verges on the NSFW), but she just wasn’t quite in the same place as her fellows on this list. Also, we share a birthday (though she’s two years younger than me).

Anyone I’ve missed? It’s a question asked of the gents, of course, but you ladies are strongly encouraged to weigh in, too.

    OMG How did I miss Mila on my post? My fingers are itching to update.

  • Diane says:

    Nice job not numbering them. Did you think I wouldn't count? Cheater. 😉

    You need to get some more dude participants here. This is shaping up to be a good day INDEED, if your post is any indication.

  • Mommy Melee says:

    Ahhahaha I love this.

    I just put you on Girl Talk Thursday.

    Go Gators!

  • Karen @ If I Could Escape . . . says:

    Hmmmmm, now I know why the hubby watches Fox Soccer Channel for supposed tidbits of LUFC coverage — he's waiting for Millie to come on with her Sky Sports update! LOL

    Err, nice to find a fellow ex-pat blogger participating in GTT!

  • I says:

    @mommygeekology–I saw your post yesterday. I'd be all about you updating it to include Mila Kunis.

    @Diane–I should have known I didn't need to wonder about anyone noticing, with you reading. 😉 But seriously, which of these pictures could I possibly have left out to get the list down to five?

    @Mommy Melee–This is my fifteen minutes of internet fame, clearly. I'm basking. And Go Gators!

    @Karen–LUFC is Leeds United, I'm assuming? Yeah, that seems a particularly unconvincing excuse to me–after all, given how far they've fallen in recent years, how often can United be showing up on Fox Soccer Channel? 😉 Your husband from Leeds, then? I'm from Bradford!

    Anyway, I'm so glad everyone's enjoying it. It was a fun post to write (and more fun to research–thank goodness for Google Images).

    Read your list to Hubs and I said "hey there's Morena from Firefly" and he was like "Oh yes. /agreed."

    For the record though, I agreed BEFORE he did. I'm gonna have to remember her for my top 5 girls. 🙂

    And you're a GATOR? Rock on and Go Gators!

  • I says:

    Morena Baccarin's appeal is universal. 😉

    And Go Gators!
