My Geek Crushes!
Anyone who wears khaki's as much as I do, jokes around as much as I do on road trips, and is willing to try anything once--Josh Gates is high on my list of geek crushes and it's because he's an adventurer who never takes anything so seriously that he can't have a blast poking around. I already pre-ordered his book coming out in October. I'm so excited!
Ben Hansen from "Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files" (new season starts in October) gets it for being not only just a really nice sweet guy, but super intelligent and as inquisitive as I am. I love that, like me, he spends his spare time investigating the paranormal--that's considered a vacation!
Cliff Barackman from "Finding Bigfoot" has made it in my geek radar. I am a Bigfoot nut and he does look fine in his woodland wear. I even like the beard and I normally hate beards on men. Pretty kind eyes, adorable light-hearted manner, and quick mind. I'd like to get lost in the woods with him.
Yeah, Mr. Spock was logical which I appreciate, but I could never stop thinking that if you let that man loose sexually, he'd be one stalking, aggressive yum-yum. I guess it's the equivalent of "librarian" attraction men get for women who seem like they need to loosen up a bit.
Vincent Price was my first geek crush and will always be in the top 3. Sure, he seemed a bit fussy and effeminate, but those crazy eyes, super tall height, long fingers, and purring voice made my knees weak and still do when I see his old films.
Nikola Tesla, I believe to be the most important man of science ever, is just so mysterious, quirky, misunderstood, and an underappreciated man. He left in his legacy a lot of unanswered questions about just what he still had planned to unleash on the world and forever change our lives.
James Mason was an early crush. In the movie "Journey to the Center of the Earth" he was a single-minded geologist who would not give up on his mission. He was terse, focused, annoyed by females and possessive of his scientific finds. His rolling brogue and beautiful eyes and sharp mind just made my heart go pitter patter.
Jeff Goldblum has always played intellectual types like in the remake of "The Fly," but it was in the movie "Jurassic Park" that he made me fantasize all kinds of naughty things. I didn't even mind his Yankee accent. He was tall, dark, and I could imagine having long night conversations with him about many subjects and then wanting to, well, do him all day long.
This particular geek is the best EVP expert I have ever known or worked with and he is tall, strong, and brilliant and has a voice I could listen to day and night. I won't name him, but I will say that he gives me lots of smiles and giggles like a schoolgirl.
