You So Can Buy My Love, Mr. Dempsey.

I just hit an all time low. It seems that I made the mistake of admitting to the designers I work with that I have an unexplainable crush on Patrick Dempsey. Oh, to have him offer to pay my dry-cleaning bill after spilling wine on mother’s white leather fringe jacket circa 1981. Teenage date- rape fantasy, indeed. (The hell?)

Today, I sat down at my computer and discovered that the guy who sits next to me had pinned a magazine picture to my wall. Patrick is staring at me as I type this. Here is some of what’s written on the page to the left of us fabulous hair.

1). That fabulous hair. “It’s my biggest asset and my biggest flaw. It takes hours to look like it hasn’t been studied.”

2). That body. “Here I am, I’m almost 40, I’m going to stay in shape. I go to the gym as much as possible.”

3). The attention of costar Kate Walsh. who plays his recently revealed wife (and I fine entirely unattractive in that Tori Spelling kind of way.). “He’s got those beautiful eyes and he’s super funny. And very charming.”

4). More fun in his scrubs. “Yeah, every now and then I’ll wear them home. It’s always fun to play doctor.”

Truthfully, I think the only reason I like him is because I think he sort of looks like Sean Penn. And I’m having trouble continuing my obsession for Sean Penn after the whole boat fiasco. There was a time where Sean Penn could have totally been a back door friend.

It appears a teenage girl moved into my cubicle today.

  1. Yeah, I admit it. I too have a crush on Mr. Dempsey. I am addicted to Grey’s Anatomy. I got my other friend Michelle addicted as well. I agree he does kinda remind me of Mr. Penn as well.

  4. I loved him in A Season in Purgatory. Aside: My husband refers to Sweet Home Alabama as Science Fiction because he doesn’t believe any woman would leave Patrick Dempsey.

    Debra, that’s wonderfully funny. BUT NOW YOU’VE RUINED THE MOVIE FOR ME!

    Just kidding. Although, Toby really likes the little lady in that movie. We could both take the trash out.

  7. greg, I don’t think he was in that movie. But now I’m wondering who you thought he was/is. :]

    Have you seen Walk the Line yet? I think you’ll love it. Reese is wonderful. Although, she’s a little on the skinny side these days. hmmmm

  8. I am missing something here???

    Isn’t this guy just a grown-up Corey Haim/Corey Feldman type?

    I’ve never even heard of any of his movies post-1987.

    Does this mean I’m a lesbian?

  10. I saw Walk the Line. It was alright, but Joaquin Phoenix was hot hot hot.

    I guess I’m not a lezzie.

    the vein the Reese Witherspoon’s forehead was bugging me the whole time. perhaps it is directly related to her lack of body fat.

  11. It’s Grey’s Anatomy that brought him back to life again.

    Before that, I hadn’t heard a peep from him. Although, someone once told me he was into older women—like much older women. I think he was dating some 60 year old woman right after he finished Can’t Buy Me Love. Maybe she died?

    I’m kidding. No clue where he’s been. But Grey’s Anatomy brought him back to life. heh. No pun intended.

  12. nico, I think you might be a non-practicing lesbian.

  13. oh, I beg to differ – I think Sweet Home Alabama brought him back! And he aged so well – I’ve got to quit thinking about this – I’m going crush crazy!

  15. great. Does that mean I’ve got to start all over now? That seems like a pain.

    I’ve seen Grey’s Anatomy. I still don’t see the attraction. he just looks like some dude you’d see douche-bagging around LA. (No, I’m not really sure what that means either.)

  16. Mihow, I didn’t mean to spoil the movie, but I assumed that the Sweet Home Alabama trailer pretty much gave that away.

    Joaquin was smoldering in Walk the Line, however Reese just didn’t quite do it for me. She did a good job, but I never would confuse her for June.

  17. Debra: I was teasin’ you A-OK, darlin.

    Nico: Ummmmm Douch-Bagging around LA? You don’t say! I’m going to spend the rest of the day trying to figure out what that means. Oh, the horror.

  18. you know, just driving around, eating in restaurants, shopping, wearing sunglasses, being a douche.

  19. Douche-Bagging doesn’t sound nearly as unpleasant as the name suggests. Actually, it sounds like a nice vacation.

  20. I know. I want to douche-bag around LA right now.
