Prof. McDreamy



I am taking a wee break from talking about my health to focus on, well, Money. I used to have it, but for the moment it just passes through my hands and out the door. Since I have been housebound I have been watching so many political shows and have become acquainted with this dashing Scottish fellow who is flogging his book "The Ascent of Money." I have to admit that accent, that suit and those big words have caused me to be all shaky like the stock market.

I found out that there is a PBS special that he did that goes along with it. "Coo, PBS!" Clearly I need to see this special. "WATCH instead of READ? Super!" my little lazy mind says.

Well, I can't find it on the air anymore so I am watching it on-line. How modern and brilliant and on-demand is that?! I want to have kids just so I have can have grandkids just so I can hear them laugh at me : "Ha, ha. Grandpappy used to have to wait to watch stuff. Ha, ha, ha."

Hey, as good a reason as any.

Well, now I think I have a secret crush on Niall: a straight, married, younger, conservative, Oxford-educated Harvard professor from Glasgow. Why do I pick all the hard to reach ones? I read somewhere that he is "handsome in that British way." Ouch, it sounded like a snarky cutdown, but it is true; he is handsome - "in that British way." I still have a thing for Paul Krugman, the Nobel prize winning economist who lectures at Princeton. What is my deal? I am in love with impossible to reach finance guys and I don't even balance a checkbook. And I am no Marilyn Monroe.

Torture.

Nothing sexier than intellect. Sometimes the gays need to be reminded.

So you can totally think of yourself as Daniel Craig in that department. :)

And there are guys like that, they just tend to hide in their labs and offices. But we will find them! hahA!
