Blushing Revelations!

Fun Monday challenge is getting tough each time...really!

Jo Beaufoix, this week's Fun Monday host gives the us the following challenge -

“I want to know about your first ‘celebrity’ crush. You know, the one you fancied from that band, or that film, or who read the news, or who won Gold at the Olympics.

Did you have their pictures on your wall or in your locker?

Did you dress like them, style or colour your hair like them, follow them, meet them, marry them? (It could happen.)

Photos of THEM would be good, photos of YOU at the time you liked them would be even better.

Also, if you have time, I’d like to know whether they had any influence over your life, the person you became, or if they were just an embarrassing blip you would kind of rather forget about.”


This is so freaking HARD for me! Hmmm, let me try this one though...

I love Air Supply, Scorpions, Styx, Survivors, Beatles...to name a few! Well, not really THEM but their MUSIC! I'm sure I was influenced by my Uncle on these...and this is the reason why I learned to play the guitar! So at 14, I could so dam play Scorpions "Still Loving You!"


My love for these bands, made me play guitar! And I can play guitar on stage anytime...I can play base...rhythm...and lead! You name it hahaha!

Then, there was Tom Cruise whom I adore and which made me boycott all movies of Nicole Kidman...LOL Then he got crazy...and well, I just had a change of heart! So I dumped him! :P

But one man, stood among the rest!

Let me present to you...my outstanding fling...

Mr. BOND...



I mean, Pierce...Brosnan! Omg, I'm blushing!

And to reminisce some old days...when I used to play guitar every freaking day of my life...for Music Monday, I give you Scorpions' Still Loving You! I just want to remember how much passionate I was with my guitar! This is not that so easy to play yah know!!! Happy Music Monday!




And I had to practice the chords more than 1000 times before I was able to play this on stage with friends...and guess what, I was the only girl in that band! It was so freaking nice...When people drool in disbelief that is was a girl on the guitar...LOL Happy Manic Monday everyone!

Gattina said...

I have to say you have a good taste, concerning man, lol ! Although Tom Cruise has never been my cup of tea !

Robin (the PENSIEVE one) said...

One of the hottest scenes I've ever spotted was Brosnan as Thomas Crowne, when he asks Renee Russo, "Do you wanna dance, or do you wanna 'dance'?"

S c o r c h i n '!!!

Of course, I liked him all the way back to "Remington Steele" (which tells you how old I am!) :).

Mo said...

You had me at Pierce Brosnan!
:)

Thanks for participating in Manic Mondays!

Sayre said...

Shhh... don't tell anyone, but I think Pierce Brosnan is my husband's "man-crush". The guy he always wished he were.

Jamie said...

Of course anything you want to do well requires practice ... Now that I've been practical ... A great big YUM for Mr. Brosnan

Mariposa said...

Guys, I have a feeling that I'm drawing comments because of Pierce Brosnan! LOL

Dave said...

Yeah, Still Loving You is on the TOP of my playlist, as well as Winds of Change, and London Calling by The Clash!

There's SO much great music out there...

Oh, my secret crushes... Drew Barrymore, Jamie Lee Curtis, Jessica Alba...

mjd said...

Well, I am impressed. Tom and Pierce are handsome, but Sean Connery will always be my favorite Bond. Pierce was very good as Remington Steele. Reportedly, Pierce is a nice guy in real life...where it counts.

swampy said...

Ooo-LaLa. Drooling.

You are so busy on Mondays. How do you do it?

nikki said...

OOOooooooo, Mr. Bond. Good choice. His accent alone would make me happy.

Melanie said...

Ooooo- I should say you have very good taste. Mr. Bond is quite handsome.

Pierce is a great choice. He is very handsome and debonaire (sp.?) I enjoy watching him act...

anthonynorth said...

As an ex- lead guitarist in a local rock band, I remember the thousands and thousands of practices.
Loved it!

Faye said...

I'm with you on Air Supply and Survivor--and Mr. Bond. Seem to remember very good stories about him and the way he cared for his wife who was very ill--am I dreaming or was it so?

IamwhoIam said...

Here I pictured you as a cello player in a blues band. (it the glasses). So you still watching old reruns of Remington Steele. Pierce at his best and those oh so Blue eyes. =}.

Pamela said...

I have two words
R.E.M.I.N.G.T.O.N S.T.E.E.L.E

OH YUM.
You chose a perfect crush.

BS said...

He had me with Remington Steele! And with the guitar, I'm impressed! You go Girl !

Gabriel said...

Hi, Mariposa!

Goofball said...

You can keep Pierce, he has always annoyed me. :)

Kittie Kate said...

Cool! That's so cool you can play it. Yeah, I like that song.

Most of the Filipinos I know are musicians.
