I've got a big Orange Crush!!!!

Crushes. We've all had em. I've probably had more than my fair share, actually! Ok, I admit it.... I was the crush queen in high school.... ok, and even college. I still get little crushes on certain movie stars. (Don't worry, my hubby is confident in my love for him- he is my eternal crush- so he allows me my little harmless Hollywood crushes.) I think my crushes helped mold me into who I am today- for better or worse!

First crush, 3rd grade- Eddie Fisher. I was convinced he would like me if I incessantly and persistantly told every kid in our grade that I loved him. I will never forget the look on his face when, in front of the entire 3rd grade out on the baseball field, I screamed "Erin Fisher, Eddie Fisher and the baby Fishers!!!!" Yes, it seems incredibly stupid now.... No... he did NOT admit his love for me in return, but I Know deep inside he felt it! How could he not?

7th grade- Jr. High student body president.... don't remember his name. I was in love with him- he didn't know I existed. Ok, once I was selling cream puffs for a fund raiser and I gave him 2 free ones. He knew me as the cream puff girl after that- not something I wish to be remembered by.

9th grade- James Rowley. This was actually a crush in reverse. I had a crush on a set of twins, but James had a crush on me. He persisted, and it paid off. We were a "couple"- whatever that means! He even gave me his shell necklace. We were "together" for a few months- too young to go to homecoming dance together :(. I just couldn't shake my crush on those twins, and felt it wouldn't be fair to James, so one day I just casually said, "I can't be with you anymore". and just like that I was a free woman. He was devastated, and I still feel guilty about it to this day. Never did get with either of the twins. James.... wherever you are, you were really cute, and I did like you a lot, but it never would have worked with us!

11th and 12th grade- my seminary teacher. It's true, I had the cliche crush on a teacher. I won't say his name because this may be too embarrasing to him, but I was whipped! He was a drummer in a band if you can believe it! One night, my best friend and I didn't have dates to a dance, so he invited us to a concert he did, and then to his house to watch movies with his wife. Ya.... I couldn't figure out how to get rid of the wife, so I just went to college instead. *sigh*

Junior in College- My voice teacher. Kinda creepy- he wasn't attractive or anything, but an incredible singer! He would always call me into his office to try out a new song on me. I would get my own awesome concert, my bones rattling with his incredibly powerful tenor voice. I guess you could say my crush was more on his voice than anything, but what a voice! He, like my seminary teacher, told me if he was my age he would have totally gone out with me. Ya... nice consolation. Oh, my seminary teacher also said I was like the quarter in the bottom of the toilet: everyone knows it's there, but no one wants to take it out. Hmmmm....... why did I have a crush on him????

Current crushes: Matt Damon,
Patrick Dempsey... (a long time crush, since "Can't buy me love")
and Prince Caspian....
(yes, I know he's a lot younger than me, but I can still appreciate a nice face, can't I?)

Any of you have big crushes, ever? Come on... share!!!!

I had such a huge crush on Aragorn (Viggo M.) from LOTR that I have a mounted poster in the computer room. I'm guessing my husband is cool with it. Maybe?

Hi Erin! Merritt kind of looks like Matt Damon! :)

Thank you so much for your post you put on my blog about our friends. I appreciated that a lot. We attended the funeral today for their little girl and it was a touching, spiritual experience. It makes me grateful to be a member of the church.

I went vegan for three whole months in Jr. High for River Phoenix.

Dude, THAT is devotion!

O.K. I couldn't bring myself to admit it outright, but I did have a small, teensy weensy crush on an obscure actor whose name rhymes with Feonardo LiSnaprio for a short time in college. Ok.... I might still find him cute.... *blush*

Wes and I have lists. I like to catagorize mine. Rocker list, old hot guy list, young hot guy list, country singer list...
