I must confess…I have a crush

I have been working hard at finishing my first novel. I am on track for my personal deadline of August 8th and really excited because my main character has had a turn of events. And it involves a very cute man.

I have a bit of a crush on this fictional character myself so I’m looking forward to writing today’s scene after I get this post out. This post about crushes.

Do you remember your first crush?

I remember mine.

It was grade two (I believe) and his name was Bjarne Saxhoug. I think his family were Norwegian or Swedish…definitely Scandinavian. Of course, I denied the crush but my sisters used to tease me about it.

Many years later, when I was 12, my first celebrity crush developed. I was smitten for several years and I still have the hots for this guy. Even though he is past 55 years old, he still looks damn fine!!! I thought it was pretty cool when I learned that my (now) husband and Billy Idol share a birthday. All my teenager dreams of marrying my idol, sort of came true.

#1 Crush Billy Idol

Billy Idol – still looking good.

Over the years, I have had many celebrity crushes. Though Billy will always hold the #1 position, here are my other significant crushes.

I was a fan of Edward Norton for many years in the 90s.

'Titanic in 3D' premieres in UK

Yes, I have a major crush on Kate Winslet. She’s classic, curvy and candy to the eye.

Bradley Cooper. Say no more.

What’s Working for me Wednesday

MUSIC!! That’s what’s working for me this Wednesday. I’ve always been a big fan of music and it works for me lots but yesterday and today I tried something. I played music while I wrote.

This may not sound very new or unusual to most but never before had I used music to help with my writing. I have tried before but it never really took. I always needed quiet when I wrote.

Now, that’s all changed and I think I have Mr M to thank.

He’s been home on days off for the past two days and editing some videos. This process means that he plays the same video and music clip over and over again. I was forced to hear a sample of deadmau5’s Ghosts n Stuff so many times that I had to have the song on my own computer. I now cannot get enough of this catchy dance tune. It really took me back to a time in my life where techno dancey songs ruled the weekend and considering I am writing about that phase of my life, the song came in handy.

Because I was able to write AND groove away I started listening to other favorites too!!

House of Shem

Bob Marley

Empire of the Sun

Silverchair

Ben Harper

Kelly Clarkson (yes, I like her!!)

Goyte

Matthew Good

The Bee Gees

and even some old 80’s songs.

I grew up in the eighties and I still love the music. You can often find an 80’s mix playing from my iTunes. I was a massive Billy Idol fan!! I even had spiked hair and wore cut off leather (fake,but) gloves. I would dream that I met him and then of course, he married me. Billy’s still rocking today and he still looks great!! What kind of sign is it that I married a man who shares his birthday?

 

Hot stuff…..

Who was your favorite musician/band growing up?
