My Magic Man List and Five Celebrity Yum-Yums

While she was checking the list, some woman stole her man.

So… one of my favorite movies of 2010 is Beauty and the Briefcase with Hilary Duff. I know it’s a rom-com, but it’s about a wanna-be writer who joins the business world to find love as she’s writing a feature article for Cosmo magazine. This is one of my daydreams actually. When the World Cup started last year, I was convinced I’d do the same by going to pubs and chatting up football fans.

Unfortunately, I wasn’t so good with the terms so I ended up calling half-time ‘middle break’ and so on. And even though I didn’t finish the article on time (which I smartly called Football Chick), I had lots of drunken fun with my new football friends. Take it from me, not many girls dare frequent bars and cafes when there’s a game on TV, so it’s a good place as any to hook up with fit guys. *blushes*

Moving on. Lane Daniels, the MC in Beauty and the Briefcase, had a checklist for the perfect mate, whom she called ‘the magic man’. Ten items is quite ambitious!

My own list had about 13 items but has now gone down to 5, which is what inevitably happens with the passing of time. Don't forget to share your list too!


1. Cute smile: I just melt when I see a guy with a cute smile. I’m generally attracted to happy people who smile a lot. I’m not saying he’d have to have a Hollywood-type smile, but a nice, bright, filling the place, making those butterflies flutter kind of smile is the secret key to my (bed)… umm heart.

2. Sexy accent: Any woman would agree that a sexy accent goes a long way. To this day, I can’t get enough of Jack Sparrow’s antics. It’s why I’ve listed Johnny Depp among the celeb yum-yums below.

3. Being a musician is a HUGE BONUS! That should have been item number one. I love music, always have. In fact, my childhood dream was to become a singer which sadly never came to fruition because I can’t carry a tune to save anybody’s life. This is why I’m like a moth to flame when it comes to musically gifted men. I especially favor the guitar and piano-players of the world. And if he sings? Oh my… I’ve gone to heaven.

4. Blue eyes: I don’t know why but there’s something so beautiful and serene about blue eyes. Sometimes I’d see someone on the street with the most beautiful blue eyes and stare after them like a freak, and then walk away dazed while cars blow their horns at me. Hey, do you mind? I’m daydreaming here! Jeez.

5. Travels a lot: Well duh. If I’m travelling, he should too. Otherwise one of us will have to make the big sacrifice and if it’s not him, I’ll have to show my only-child horns. I can’t really be chained to one place; I need to be free!


5. David Cook: 2008 American Idol Winner

Age: 28 (birth date: December 20, 1982) Sign: Sagittarius
Astrological compatibility: Capricorn and Sagittarius complement each other, to a certain extent. I supposed his directness might be annoying at times…

Fun fact: He broke up with one of his ex-girlfriends on January 13th, MY BIRTHDAY. I think this means we’re meant to be.

Latest album: This Loud Morning (released on June 28, 2011).
Favorite song: PERMANENT. It’s just… you’d have to hear it.

Musician: CHECK CHECK.
Blue eyes: Undetermined.
Sexy accent: --
Cute smile: DOUBLE CHECK.
Travels: He used to tour. Dunno, I’m not privvy with his schedule. *sigh*

4. Jared Leto: Double-Threat Yum-Yum
(lead-singer of 30 Seconds to Mars and actor extraordinaire)

Age: 40 (birth date: December 26, 1971) Sign: Capricorn
Astrological compatibility: Danger, Will Robinson! While two Capricorns have been blessed with celestial potential, they are both too career-driven to last.  

Fun fact: He does extremes for his arts. He’s starved himself for a movie and has been trampled to injury by a concert mob of fans.

Latest album:  This is War (2010). Favorite song: HURRICANE (Rated!)
Best album: A Beautiful Lie (2005).
Latest film: Mr. Nobody (2009).
Best film: Requiem for a Dream (2000): A MUST-WATCH CLASSIC.

Musician:  CHECK.
Blue eyes: CHECK. Best eyes award!
Sexy accent: No, but he’s a got a sexy singing voice.
Cute smile: DOUBLE CHECK.
Travels: CHECK. He’s even touring in Bulgaria this summer!

3. Ashton Kutcher: Yum-Yum on Screen

Age: 33 (birth date: February 7, 1978) Sign: Aquarius
Astrological compatibility: While the Aquarius thrives on excitement, the Capricorn is a firm traditionalist and has a colder temperament. Perhaps too different. *glares*

Fun fact: His first name is Christopher, has a twin named Michael, and has two webbed toes on his left foot. Hey, nobody’s perfect!

Latest films: No Strings Attached (2011), Killers (2010), Valentine’s Day (2010).
Best film: The Guardian (2006), definitely.

Musician: I think he plays the guitar a little.
Blue eyes: --
Sexy accent: --
Cute smile: DOUBLE CHECK.
Travels: I have no idea. So… why did I list him again? Oh yeah, he’s DROP-DEAD SEXY, that’s why.

2. Johnny Depp: YUM LEGEND!

Age: 48 (birth date: June 9, 1963) Sign: Gemini
Astrological compatibility: Gemini, it seems, is too energetic of a sign to work well with the cautious and steady Capricorn. Oh well.

Fun fact: He stars in lots of Tim Burton movies with co-star Helena Bonam Carter… but you knew that of course.

Latest films: Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides (2011), Rango (2011), The Tourist (2010), Alice in Wonderland (2010).
Best films: From Hell (2001), Sweeny Todd (2007), Edward Scissorhands (1990).

Musician: CHECK. He plays the guitar, which makes him the ultimate Yum-Yum.
Blue eyes: CHECK.
Sexy accent: He’s terribly good at accents.
Cute smile: DOUBLE CHECK.
Travels: I think he’s settled in France now.

1. Alex Pettyfer: The Yum KAHUNA of Rising Stars

Age: 21 (birth date: April 10, 1990) Sign: Aries
Astrological compatibility: Again, too different to work. He breaks rules, I follow them. He is optimitic and I am melancholic. I suppose I should hold off the wedding for now.

(WTF? Am I meant to be alone or something???)

Fun fact: He’s the face of one of my MC’s in my fantasy WIP. My female protagonist is in love with him and so am I. Connor, the MC in question, is Australian.

Latest films: Beastly (2011) & I Am Number Four (2011).
Best film: It’s yet to come.

Musician: CHECK!
Blue eyes: CHECK.
Sexy accent: CHECK. He’s British.
Cute smile: DOUBLE CHECK.
Travels: Again, no idea, I’M NOT A STALKER, OKAY?!


So… on a scale from one to ten, how much of a nerd am I? 


Raelyn Barclay said...

Cute! I totally agree with the sexy accent and blue (green works too) eyes. Smile has to reach said eyes!

It's a sad world that 3 of your 5 are way, way too young :)

Piper Bayard said...

You've definitely got some yummies here. I'm with Raelyn on their ages. Why, some of these yummies are young enough to be my . . . much younger brothers. :) Thanks for the post.

Lyn Midnight said...

Settle down, girls. That's why I included Johnny and Jared. *drools* Men do age great don't they, shameless bastards!

Thank you, ladies, for stopping by!

Nice list. Very attractive, but I am happy to see that I don't have to fight you for any of them.

Probably, 'cause I like my dudes oldish. Haha.

Melanie_McCullough said...

Oh, Alex Pettyfer. Is there a finer specimen of man? Love him!

Thomas McAuley said...

I checked twice and failed to find a second page, which leaves me thinking -- certainly mistakenly -- that I've been left off the list? Note I state this as a question because the numbers don't add up. Granted, I don't travel or have blue eyes, but I'm a smiling musician with an accent, though merely a mid-western American one that is not widely considered sexy. Add to that I'm neither particularly fit or young and...oh.

I must have added wrong the first time. I'm entirely unsexy. Well, nothing left but to own it. *sigh*

Ava Jae said...

I know I mentioned this on Twitter, but our taste in men is eerily similair, lol.

Love the list! My only addition would be JOSH DUHAMEL! I mean he doesn't have blue eyes...or an accent...BUT STILL!

Anyway! This was a lot of fun. I am not ashamed of inspiring this at all. :D

Joseph Eastwood said...

I think I could be in the running y'know.

I can play the triangle: check.
I have blue eyes: check
I'm British/accent xD: check

I should be on this list somewhere. Lemme check again lol
It's a great list, mmm, hot guys =]


Lyn Midnight said...

@wosushi Hah. I was going to add James McAvoy too but the numbers didn't add up. Well, what did you expect? I'm only 24, lol.

@Melanie That's why he's number one. But I'd really like to see a good film with him! And I didn't even know he's a musician before yesterday! *loves more*

@Thomas Ha! I knew you'd say that. Actually, 3 out of 5 is not that bad. I'll see what I can do for the next post. :D

@Ava *cue Xfiles music* Eerie! We might as well be two of those separated twins! You should show me a picture of you so I know for sure.

@Joseph Oh yeah? I think now's the time for you to give me your number. :D Though I'd be happier if you upgrade from triangle to guitar, lol.

Thanks 4 reading, everyone!!! ^_^

Brea Essex said...

Ohhh I LOVE your list! Especially Alex Pettyfer and Jared Leto. I've had a crush on Jared Leto since he was on "My So-Called Life"! And the musician thing? I had the same "moth to flame" problem with musicians . . . until I realized that every musician I knew (especially singers!) were so completely full of themselves that there wasn't room to be bothered with anyone else lol!

Lyn Midnight said...

Haha, I know what you mean! In fact, those who aren't too full of themselves are too shy and emotional to be reasoned with, lol. BUT I can't help it. Thanks for commenting, Brea. *hugs*
