I once wrote about having a crush on Abrahams Lincoln’s mother. I know, I’m not proud of that fact but we had a children’s book about Abe and there was a sketch of his mother and she was good looking and I was a boy…so what are you going to do?

Anyway I was reminded of a Harper Lee quote after reading some chucklehead’s anonymous comment who basically said “America, love it or leave it!” Harper Lee said of some of her fellow American travelers “When in Rome do as you done did in Monroeville.” which lead me to the following internal dialogue.

-Harper Lee is a babe.


-Yea, for some reason I think Harper Lee is hot.

-You don’t even know what she looks like.

-God, you’re right- Oh yeah…the actress (Catherine Keener) that played Harper Lee in the Truman Capote movie is very attractive.

-So now you have a crush on Catherine Keener?

-No, I think it's a crush on Harper Lee

-You better not let Abe’s mom find out about it.

The more I think about it the more I realize that I should probably get a job or at the very least a hobby.

I get the Abraham Lincoln's mother thing ( she had to be a pretty good mother to raise a son that went on to such greatness). And, yet I fear, she might be, what is euphemistically, described as a handsome woman, i.e. ugly.

Harper Lee was a literary hotty. I appreciate your cerebral attraction.

Yet, how do I rationalize my love and affection for Hoss Cartwright( from Bonanza). I have a mad crush on him.

Hoss had the best hat, fer sure.

I love you for understanding. Or, at least finding something lovable about my Hoss.

Wait, aren't WE your hobby?

You all are my hobby, but if you start sending me money you could be my job. I think we would all be happier if I could live in the standard I was accustomed to before I foolishly quit my job.

Well... Money is a problem, but I could totally send cookies.

Also, I had a crush on Jack Lord (McGarrett) on Hawaii 5-0 when I was a kid if that helps.
