Childhood Crush CrossPost Day

Not a normal post day here at RMB, but I couldn't resist getting in on the Childhood Crush Crosspost. According to Dave at Living in the Now, the confessions of your childhood crushes was spawned as an idea by Gedeon Maheux during an exchange on Twitter last Friday. Here’s a list of all known participants. If you want to join with us and confess, just jump in! Leave your link in the comments.

So here are the ones I can remember from the hazy days of my youth in the, ahem, late 70's early 80's. It is scary typing in those dates as times when I was old enough to actually have a crush, because they seem so long ago now. But here goes, in order of least to most embarrasing:

Risky Business Tom Cruise, pre-Scientology
and Oprah outbursts. I know I'm not alone on
this one.

Andy Gibb. I think I had a poster of him,
one of those black velvet things that gathered
dust and cat hair as it hung on the wall. Can
you believe this one is for sale on eBay?

Of course, of course, Luke Skywalker.
I even went to see the horrible movie,
Corvette Summer, because he was the
lead (or at least Mark Hammil was).

Now it is starting to get a little weird.
Michael York. I saw Logan's Run at
a too-tender age, but I loved his
accent. I saw the movie years later,
and it was really a stinker, but
MY was still hot.

And now for the absolute most embarrassing one:

The magician Doug Henning. I'm not making this up.

I kept a photo of him under my mattress.

Whew. Glad that is off my chest now. Hope you haven't lost all respect for RMB. See you tomorrow for Fiction Friday.

I'm right there with you on Andy and Luke (oh Luke....).

Now magician Doug...sorry, you're on your own.

Loved this crosspost too!

Logans run is the only only film I ever found Jenny Agutter attractive in. I met her at a party off the 21st anniversry of the American Werewolf in England, and she's improved with age, or may be I've mellowed.

Strange coincidence, but Farrah Fawcett, (I had the poster, but amazed I didn't remember her) was in that as well.

This has really been fun
