In this episode, Liz and Heather have invited back our friends Jessica and Lanie to talk all about Geek Crushes!
We get to marry our two favorite topics – geeks and boys! (Or girls… we don’t discriminate!). Heather’s childhood crush was Wil Wheaton, Liz’s was River Phoenix, and Lanie mentioned Leonord Nemoy, and Jessica loves Hugh Jackman. Operaman was helpful enough to help us come up with the world’s longest list of geeky crushes, both male and female. Crushes are not really sexualized, they are really just the people we want to moon over, have coffee with, and who makes us smile.
Some of these people we absolutely love more because of who they are and what they stand for, other than just what they look like.
*Side Note: We will be playing a game of Dungeons & Dragons with a bunch of newbie gals soon, so that would be awesome.
Catherine Tate and David Tennet are freaking awesome, so check this out.
Neil deGrasse Tyson – Liz totally has a geek crush on him, but Heather doesn’t get why.
We are realizing that as we get older, we are much more attracted to someone who is smart and interesting, rather than just the dude with the abs. This really crushes the stereotype that women really like the bad boy over the nice guy. Lanie has done some psychological research on this… the bad boys get the girls BECAUSE they are originally NICE, and then they flip their “douche switch” and the ladies keep chasing the dragon of the nice guy.
Joseph Gordon Levitt – cutest thing ever! We could totally stick him in our pockets and just snuggle him! He also has a really cool new project called HitRecord.org that you should completely check out. It is a community site for creative people to work together to create awesome new projects.
Make sure to listen to the whole episode to hear us drool over the whole list.
