He's handsome, he's dashing, he's sexy, he's magnetic, he's ... meh!

I've been in a series of conversations lately that amount to someone telling me about their latest interest/crush/undying devotion to some star or celebrity - but I just feel zero reaction to the guy, sometimes I even feel the opposite of interest/crush/undying devotion! Standing in line at the grocery store points out this disparity as well - yet another tabloid with a beautiful face smiling down at me, but my reaction is "Why don't they show us someone worth looking at?"

This isn't just a symptom of getting older maturing because I used to have this problem even in the days of high school friends giggling over the pictures of teen idols. I do used to feel embarrassed being the only person that just doesn't see "it" in some pretty famous and long-standing celebrities. Now that my circle of friends has widened to include members of the LGBT community, I even have people of both genders trying to convince me of the amazingness of certain stars. Fortunately, my dear gay friend and I don't have the same taste in men, even aside from the obvious! *snicker* I'd hate to try to compete for the attentions of the same suitor!

I suppose this all falls into the category of "I just don't get it". And I have to admit I pride myself on understanding many, many things in life. Additionally, since I tend to think in terms of "what is wrong with ME?" it took me a long time to realize it might be my friends who have the poor taste in celebrities, and I'm just much more discerning. Yah, right.

In conclusion (cue the closing theme music) I guess this lack of appreciation of yet another supposedly handsome celebrity isn't too world shattering! In fact, isn't it grand to have a few minutes in life where worrying about liking or disliking a pretty face is all I have to whine about?!?!?!?! I hope all my flist has a few minutes (or more) this weekend to mull over similar inconsequential mysteries of life - Everyone take 5 minutes off!!!!!

P.S. I have over 100 icons to choose from, why can't I ever find one that fits some posts in that undefinable, mysterious way? The icon with this post is not of a specific star that I find disinteresting, but it was as close as I could get with my current insufficient icon collection.

YES YES YES. Case in point: the Supernatural guys. And Brad Pitt.

For me it's Robert Pattinson (sp?) the Twilight actor. I just don't get it, either.

David Beckham. He's talented, he's pretty, and he does nothing for me... I get more excited by a plate of chips.

Have you ever seen This Old House? Norm makes me wild. Thank God we all have different bells to ring...
