Chris Pratt Interrupts Interview To French Braid Intern’s Hair

I’m attracted to him suddenly.
Ok, I get it now.
Well. I’m turned on and soothed and basically want to have his babies as soon as possible. And I cared *nothing* about him before this moment. He’s married, right? Do we think that’s solid? Or what?
ETA: But seriously, why does he even know how to do that?? I don’t know how to do that. It says so many wonderful things about him. Is he the best man currently living on the planet, for example? Because that’s one of the things it seems to indicate.
So this is the kind of day I’m having. How are you?

I’m coming for you, self-actualization.
Redesigning The Bible With Readability In Mind
The goal of the Bibliotheca project is to print a Bible that you’ll want to read cover to cover.
I love this! I’ve never read the Bible cover to cover, despite several attempts, because I usually get distracted by footnotes and cross references before I’m out of the first chapter of Genesis. Mine get regular use, but definitely in the “spiritual encyclopedia” capacity, and I want more. Plus, these books are beautiful, which most other read-through Bibles are not. Hmm. Now might be a good time to mention that I’ve got a birthday coming up…
One of my favorite Dwight tracks. Super fun for harmonizing. You know not one of those kids at the Taylor Swift concert knew it, which is why they were talking over her singing it. Pfft.
Yeah, Neil Patrick Harris is a good one. Though he tends to be cast (at least so far as I’m aware) in more theatrical, less traditional leading man roles. (I definitely put anything HIMYM in the “theatrical” category.) And, though I did crush hard on him when he was Doogie Howser, M.D., he’s not really a heartthrob is he? Generally speaking?
Matt Bomer is exactly the sort of actor I meant, and I’ll be interested to see how his career progresses in terms of the roles he’s offered, the money he gets for them, and the way audiences react to him.
Besides Bomer and Harris, who else have I overlooked?
I totally thought Darren Criss was gay and I’ve seen him in several straight roles lately that made me think, “OMG, he’s proving that gay men CAN convincingly play straight men AND can be heartthrobs AND can be leading men! Yay progress!” But I guess he’s actually straight. So we’re still waiting for the gay-playing-straight leading man. Or, more to the point, the out gay-playing-straight leading man.
Neil Patrick Harris and Matt Bomer play two of the most womanizing men on TV, Chris has played two (soon to be three when Hot in Cleveland comes out) straight roles. This isn’t such a revolutionary topic, really. It’s already happening, you don’t need to say Darren’s gay so you can have this.
Hey, person who doesn’t know me at all. Take about ten steps back, for starters.
Firstly, I did not say Darren is gay. I said exactly the opposite of that. But ten points to you for your attempt at reading comprehension.
Secondly, I notice you tagged this “lolcrisscolfershippers,” which is…laughable, to say the least. I don’t watch Glee or follow its stars (which you’d think would be obvious since I thought Criss was gay in real life), nor do I care a whit about “shipping” any of them. That you assumed I did and got pissy about it with a stranger who wrote a completely benign post is probably an indication that you should get outside your box more.
Thirdly, I don’t care whether you think it’s a revolutionary topic. It’s something I thought about as I watched a movie in which Darren Criss starred, and I wrote about it here, on my personal blog, with the hope that some of my intelligent friends and followers might chime in with related thoughts or observations. (And they have. Thanks, guys!) I didn’t realize a Darren Criss tag would would act as a dog whistle and bring Glee fangirls out of the woodwork. Lesson learned.
Incidentally, I didn’t mention Chris Colfer at all. Nor do I need to “have this.” Some of us like simply to consider the world and how it works and how it is or isn’t progressing, and we often find it enjoyable to discuss such topics with others capable of conversing considerately. I hope someday you’ll join us.
