shameless confession….

an old friend of mine, Heather, once told me about the idea of a “lust friend.” Not a boyfriend or girlfriend, a lust friend is a unobtainable (often celebrity… but doesn’t necessarily need to be) person you lust after (gee, I guess that was pretty obvious). Kinda like a “Crush” but different…

Example: Ben Afleck is Tina’s lust friend.

Well I want to come out and announce my current lust friend (as you tend to change from time to time). But before I do that, a quick apology:

open letter to Emma Thompson: Dearest Emma,

I’m sorry things didn’t work out for us as lust friends. I do apologize for making you dump Kenneth for me. I’ve moved on, I’m sure you can to… Matt

Now that’s finished I can announce my current “Lust Friend”: Alyson Hannigan. Ok I’ll admit it, she’s actually been my lust friend for the last two years (since I discovered Buffy on TV). Who is Alyson you ask? Blasphemers!!!!! To those of us in the know, she is Willow on Buffy The Vampire Slayer. For those of you not in the know, she’s best remember for her flute skills in American Pie (and American Pie II). The right mix of sensitive, red headed and awkward, she is the pinnacle of “geek chicks.” Plus she’s just slightly older than I am (only by a few months… god, I’m embarrassed that I know that). Sadly, because she is such a geek chick she already has a legion of fans that have made her their “Lust Friend” as well. But I won’t lose “Lust Hope”. Doggoned it, my lust is purer than their lust… (hmm that didn’t come out quite the way I meant it to).

Ok, that’s one more secret out of the bag. I hope you all don’t think less of me. Alyson, on the really odd chance that you’re reading this, I promise that you don’t need a restraining order. But should you ever visit Western NY drop me a note. I’ll be happy to show you my apartmen… err… I mean around Rochester, NY.

p.s. note to everyone else: See American Pie II, it’s really good. Lot’s of Alyson Hannigan!

p.p.s. Alyson: I promise I’m not an overweight, kinda off, fanboy (pretty fit, slightly off, fanboy is a far better description… I do swear I don’t drool)….
