Prompt Fest: Part II

Perhaps you’ve played this game. Your boyfriend/girlfriend/spouse lets you have one free pass — one special man or woman who is so attractive and out of reach that if circumstances allowed it, your partner would allow you to sleep with that person. Most monogamous couples feel safe with the free pass rule as it’s more theoretical than practical. Still, if your partner gave you a free pass, would you use it? On who? (Single people can use this prompt however they please.)

First of all, in this situation age would not matter, or else we’d have some major problems. Hell yes I would. Now, I can’t pick one person, so let’s be realistic. Maybe some of the people on this list will be busy that day and are unavailable. Also, just picking one is no fun. So here we go, Emily’s list of celeb hotties.

Jake Gyllenhaal
How can you not want that face? I love Jake. He’s the star of my favorite movie almost no one has seen. He’s my crush type (which is about the opposite of my actual type) with the scruffy brown hair, blue eyes (I’ll also accept green)… Dreamy… And he hasn’t developed a reputation for being an ass which is always a good thing.

Topher Grace
Are you starting to see a pattern here? I also love Topher. You’ll probably recognize him from That 70’s Show. He’s also been in Win a Date With Tad Hamilton, Spiderman 3, and Valentine’s Day. And other things, but those are the ones I know of/care about. He first caught my eye back in the day of Win a Date, and has stayed in my affections ever since.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt
How could you see (500) Days of Summer and not swoon a little? Sure, it was the character you fell for, but Tom wouldn’t have been the same if he was played by another actor. Plus, JDL was in 10 Things I Hate About You showing his excellent taste in movies with numbers in the title.

Penn Badgley
Penn Badgley
Now, I don’t watch Gossip Girl although I have tried to. But those few episodes I have seen? All I needed to fall for Penn Badgley. You can clearly see my two types of guys in these 4 specimens. Also, my car’s name is Penn, although it is not named after Penn Badgley. That would be weird/creepy. Penn always seems to play the overlooked guy friend role (John Tucker Must Die, Easy A…) Go Woodchuck Todd!

I can think of many others, but I’m thinking this post is already long enough. A continuation of my list may be written about some other day when I need a topic. And fictional characters… Don’t even get me started.


Prompt Fest: Part I

I know I’ve been blogging about television way too much lately, so I’m going to be trying something different for the next couple days or so. The other day I wrote a response to a prompt from NaBloPoMo, and I really liked the idea, so I’m going to be responding to some more prompts until I get bored with them. I figure it’s a good way to get my creative juices going in time for NaNoWriMo.

You’ve just been given a million dollars. You are not allowed to keep it or give it to anyone you know personally. What do you do with it and why?

Can I be allowed to keep it in the bank for a bit so I can gain interest and have more to give out? To start with, I would probably give the largest chunk of this money to some sort of cancer research organization. I’ve seen too many relatives and people around me lose a family member to cancer. My maternal grandmother passed away in February 2008 to… I want to say cervical cancer after battling with it for the third time. Cancer is such a broad disease that affects millions without any cause, and in so many cases there is no true way to prevent it. With all the different variations of it in existence, I believe this is the primary disease we need to find a cure for.

After that… I’d probably give some to some sort of educational program for like…at risk kids from lower income families or something. Because kids are our future, yo.

And I can also definitely see myself donating to NaNoWriMo for being so awesome.

Hold My Earrings, Girl

I was checking out the NaBloPoMo site, and came across this prompt:
Two teenage girls are slugging it out in a parking lot. What do you do?

Well, having been in this situation, I had to address it. Two years ago, back in the Stone Age when I had to take PE, a fight broke out in the parking lot between two girls. Was I at all disturbed? No. What I found the most disturbing was how bad of a fight it was. Really, they were just holding onto each other’s hair, spinning around in circles, and flailing at each other. I mean… Come on people! At least if you’re going to get in a fight, make it worth it. You’re going to get punished either way, so you might as well do a good job.
Does this make me a sadistic person?
