    "I think I could fall madly in bed with you"

    "I think I could fall madly in bed with you."  ~Author Unknown

    The end of the 2011 was lovely and then 2012 came and blew my face off with it's awfulness. Not real awfulness but the type where things keep piling up and then one day you tell your mother to get the fuck off of you as you hop out of moving car. And then you get to walk a mile in the cold without a coat but your body is heated by so much anger. SO MUCH. And you arrive at the bar and say to Favorite Bartender, "I want to get so drunk that I don't remember my own name" and he says, "I can help you with that" as he pours 16oz of Tempranillo. It's not even that much of a story except to say that I spent a solid week telling myself that I was ok physically and have my health and then I'd pop a Klonopin because health is relative. Now it's over, lessons have been learned and I'm ready to get into the new year but first thing's first:

    Did you watch the Golden Globes Sunday night? No matter but if you did you saw that Idris Elba won best actor for the BBC series Luther. And then I went on and on (in my head, of course) about all of the things I'd like to do to Stringer Bell.

    I'm in a coffee shop right now fanning myself because damn, y'all. Just damn.

    Which brings me to a discussion I had with colleagues as to who you'd do. You know DO. In the horizontal fashion. I'm usually just a casual observer: I see an actor or anyone for that matter, remark on just how cute/handsome/OH MY GOD LET'S HAVE BABIES they are and then move on about my day. But being forced to really think about who I find totally do-able was far more difficult than I thought it would be. Don't you love how seriously I take this? Much like everything else in my life who you want to sleep with requires deep thought, concentration and perhaps a Pro/Con list.

    Without further ado, here are the dudes (I don't know how I ended up with only dudes but whatever) I'd…um…yeah:

    1. Common
    2. Idris Elba
    3. Mark Wahlberg
    4. Colin Firth
    5. James Franco/Mark Ruffalo

    Honorable mentions: Bradley Cooper, Salma Hayek, Jake Gyllenhal, Robert Downey, Jr.

    Your list is perfect except I'd switch Downey for Franco. Otherwise, perfection.

    Thank you. It took a lot of time, effort and drooling.

    But my favorite was when you realized that he is British. That totally makes him hotter.

    One of my best college girlfriends is currently having a booty call type of relationship with a man who looks strikingly like a lighter skinned Idris Elba. And oh, man, oh man. I am married, but dayum. She was sitting there trying to figure out if she was the booty call or if he was, and I was all: HOLY JESUS WOMAN HAVE YOU SEEN HIM? WHO CARES? I mean, she doesn't need to have his babies or anything, and he's nice enough, ... sometimes I need to live vicariously through my friends and this is one of those times.

    PS - he isn't British, but should you be in the Philly area and perusing OK Cupid, I'll send you a link. Or have her send you a link.

    If you get with Salma Hayek and a baby comes from that a union...

    Well, you know what I mean.

    Overall you have a very nice list!
