I was told before I got married that you are allowed to have your Top 5. The Top 5 is a list you make that if someone far fetched like an actor or athlete or famous person approached you and said, "Rachel, you make me want to be a better person" (or something that makes your toes curl or face go numb) you have 100% free reign to make out with them or whatever. So before we married I told Chip about this and he just rolled his eyes and said, "whatever." I guess he has complete faith that none of my Top 5 would ever want me, he's a punk. So anyway, I give to you the list. It has changed and I really only have 3 right now. This way I have room for growth or if someone famous comes up to me - hey! guess what! I have room for you kiddo!
1) Hugh Laurie - some of you know him as Dr. House, but I know him as the smart ass that stole my heart. I love his pompous attitude and in real life he has an accent that will make you fall to your knees. The sad news is he's married, so I would have to be on his Top 5, but I'm not famous or an athlete or in any movies.
2) Josh Duhamel - this was one of those love at first sight situations. We met one Monday night a few years ago when him and James Caan appeared on Las Vegas. He didn't notice me through the TV sitting there staring at him from my couch, but I felt the connection. We then started hanging out every Friday and even during reruns. Now with 2 Tivos in my house I can watch repeats until it comes back on next season. He too is committed, but not married. Yet, there is no way I can compete with Fergie - she's hot.
3) Mark Ruffalo - Mark is special, he is the boy next door that you think about when you lie awake at night wondering if he may be thinking about you too. He's the good guy that will always be there for you and makes you want to be a better person. He proved this in Rumor Has It. His crooked smile is adorable and makes you want to squeeze him. I don't always agree with his political beliefs, but that doesn't take him off my list. The thing that would, is the fact that him and his wife have 2 kids and are expecting their 3rd this fall - so they probably love each other.
There you have it friends, my Top 3 of 5. If you know any of these heart throbs please pass them my digits so we can have their people call my people.
