I have developed a major crush on Robert Downey Junior. The odd thing about this is that when I googled his name to find a nice photo to put on my blog purely for your information, dear readers, I could barely find one that I liked. Add to this the fact that I’ve never actually seen one of his movies, and also the general consensus that he’s “a bit of a fool eejit,” as Kate informed me when I dreamily mentioned his name, and he might seem a strange choice of crush.
The thing is, I’ve been watching a few of my old Ally McBeal DVDs, in which he appeared as Larry Paul throughout season four. I honestly think that Larry – not Robert – is my ideal man. This is unfortunate, as he is not real. I, on the other hand, am real. You can see the logistic problems here.
Larry is tall, dark and handsome (much like Robert Downey Junior, in fact), wears sexy I Am Intelligent As Well As Gorgeous glasses, is honest, lovable and clever, and – above all – makes me laugh. One of my favourite scenes is where Ally goes off into one of her daydreams in the middle of a conversation, and when she hears him saying “Ally? Ally?” and comes back to reality, he says “Hi!” and just continues with what he was saying, as if nothing happened. This amuses me no end. I have a weird sense of humour.
Anyway, Larry is my perfect man. Such a shame that he doesn’t exist. Here’s a gratuitous picture, because K8 always appreciates those when I post them.
