Lainey calls it the "list of 5 'unattainables' you’d have permission to tap without consequence from your significant other should the opportunity arise".
No long-term tapping here -- just a romp in the sheets... or on the floor... or in the sand... or on the kitchen counters... or in the car... etc. You get the picture.
Why do I enjoy this List thing? Because it's such a simple premise, harmless, and so much fun, especially when you're hanging out with a bunch of drunk girlfriends.
And apparently, it's a big thing with many of my readers too. I mean, did you read the comments on last year's post?! Holy crap!
Anyway, these lists are all in fun, and I have no intention of ever leaving my darling Roomie for my pretend boyfriend Gerard Butler -- or anyone else for that matter.
So, if you make a list too, we won't hold you to it -- unless you actually want to try out some hot monkey-lovin' with George Clooney or Salma Hayek, of course. ;)
Anyway, on that note, I proudly share my 2009 Freebie List.
And your job is to show me your list in the comments. Okay, let's begin.
1: Gerard Butler -
Despite the spittle and funny pants (thanks, Lainey, you've ruined it for me! :D lol), I'm steadfast in my mad-crush. He's tall, funny, scruffy, and intelligent, and he reminds me too much of Roomie, but that's okay.
2: Ed Quinn -
He's tall, dark, handsome, and played a scientist guy on one of my fave shows, Eureka. But really, it's the VOICE. It's like velvet, people! When he speaks, it's like he's wrapping you up in chocolate.
3: Jared Padalecki -
Okay, this one has landed me square in the center of Cougarville. Oh, for shame! I once tweeted "I want to take Jared Padalecki and do naughty things to him. Is that bad?" According to many Twitter girlfriends, it's not.
4: Joe Flanigan -
Not sure if I'd like him in any role other than that of John Sheppard on Stargate: Atlantis. Haven't seen him in anything else though. He reminds me of Richard Dean Anderson's Jack O'Neill -- funny, sexy, strong leader. He TOTALLY rocks the black t-shirt!
5: Nathan Fillion -
Another scruffy, sexy, funny, strong leader. I LOVE Firefly and Serenity, but if everything else sucked in the show and movie, I'd still watch it for Nathan's Mal. I really thought he'd be too pretty-boy for the job. I am happy to admit I was wrong.
The Unofficial 6-10...
This is like the Area 51 of the Freebie List. It exists. It's got really interesting stuff. Many people deny that it's really there. Well, it's there on MY list!
6: Craig Ferguson
7: Clive Owen
8: Hugh Jackman
9: Joshua Jackson
10: Adam Levine
Okay, now you...
