Since I moving into my new flat (May) and getting cable TV (June), I am increasingly watching more television. With that have come a steady stream of lusts. Worryingly I have realised when it comes to eye candy I have tended towards younger types...
Confused a bit with that one, as in my late teens obsessions always came in the shape of older men. There was the older boyfriend, Pierce Brosnan and Gabriel Byrne.
And now? First it was Ian Somerhalder, last seen in Lost but I noticed him first in the since cancelled Young Americans. That crush fueled further by his Adelaide born 'twin' whom I encountered in an Aussie bar in NYC earlier this year. He too was around the 24 year old mark.
Once Ian was killed off in Lost I came across a silly typical American TV series, One Tree Hill. All beautiful people, with fantastic clothes, flash cars ... like The OC but set in North Carolina.
It took watching an episode with my neighbour, to realise just how silly it all was. Since then I have found fab Australian series ... Tripping Over and Love My Way. Those I love to watch because of the Sydney scenery, which is inevitably sprinkled throughout each episode. I had not realised just quite how much I do miss the place. That one hour always puts a smile on my face, just by seeing some familiar landmarks, always against a sunny (and windy) background. Luckily the latest eye candy, Sam Worthington is 30! The interesting trivia about him is that he came close to being the next James Bond. Now I think he gave Daniel Craig a run for his money.
K would be very pleased with this development. It means a stop to her needing to chaperone me in bars and even occasionally interrupting 'the spell' with a 'a barely out of the school' boy who thinks I'm the best thing since sliced bread. (Can't help that most guys I meet out think I'm under 25!)
Does this mean I have to start acting my age (28)? I think yes. Boo!
