(Let's Get) Freaky Friday

I've been computerless for a week now, so I'm deep in the withdrawal phase--DTs, nervous breakdowns, facial tics, AND I went totally batshit crazy ballistic on the Best Buy Geek. Those of you who know me in real life know I'm NOT a yeller. At all. This is the sad state I find myself in.

Which is why I'm not going to do a regular Freaky Friday list, but a super-fun sex-ay version to keep my mind off my troubles. I'm going to list five unusual things I find sexy about people in general (no need to get too personal here) and I want you guys to participate as well.

1. Buddy Holly glasses. Have you ever seen photos of Buddy Holly without his glasses? Ooh, la-la! I love that the thick black frames kept his beautiful face a secret. And I always thought Clark Kent was way hotter than Superman.
2. Barely noticeable imperfections in appearance. A hole in a flannel shirt. Crescents of dirt under fingernails. Unevenly cut hair. Pen marks on skin.
3. A man reading a newspaper on the subway. The newspaper has to be crinkled, with sections threatening to spill out over the floor. Ink stains on fingertips are a plus. Don't know how much longer people are going to be reading newspapers anywhere, given ad revenues, so I'll take this one when I can get it. Sorry, Kindles may be cool but they are not sexy.
4. A man waiting in line who is not jabbering away on a cell phone, punching buttons on a blackberry or listening to an iPod. A faraway look in his eye is a must. Daydreaming is sexy.
5. Using money clips instead of wallets. (But not the silver, girlishly monogrammed kind from Tiffany's--yuck!). It speaks of confidence.

(And here is my list of five so-not-sexy things: thong sandals, manicures for guys, Tom Cruise movies, high top sneakers, and those thin, filmy sports jersey/shorts matching sets. Ugh.)


  1. Daydreaming, preferably looking slightly lost while doing it, is very sexy. I go for the sad sacks, though ;)

  2. Hey, my husband uses a money clip and is always reading the paper if he's waiting at the airport or on the rapid. Hands off lady!

    I'm so with you on thick glasses. Love.

    Other turn ons include - people who are randomly, witty and smarter than I am.

    Mandals are the worst. Also grown men in football jerseys. Eeew.

  3. This post makes me giggle. And mandals? Sooo wrong, I can't even tell you.

    High top sneakers need to be shot. Like, all of them.

    Great list!

  4. My husband has a crooked bottom tooth that makes my head spin. Honestly, off to kiss him now... thanks!

  5. Damn! I thought I was going to be so original with my crooked teeth thing! I love it when the canine teeth (I think that's what they are called) are a little crooked.

    Also... normally I have to say that a backwards baseball hat on most guys looks stupid, but on my husband... I don't know, it just works for me!

    Oh- one more thing. The back of the neck on a dark haired guy who just had a fresh haircut! YUM!

  6. Ooh, Kathleen, you are so right about the back of the neck thing!
