For your amusement and important information I have compiled a list of the top five loves of little Emma’s life (not including Monster Munch, Dr Pepper or mashed potatoes). This is a list of famous people. Don’t be silly I’m not ready to embarrass myself that much. Plus it just brings back memories of rejection.
1. Jim Carrey – 1994-1995
(9 to 10 years old)
A huge and very memorable childhood crush. And not one that carried through to adulthood. I think it must have been The Mask that started my ‘infatuation’ but it was a poster from film Ace Ventura that I had pinned inside my desk at school.
2. Liam Gallagher – 1995-2005
(true love…kind of)
This was a crush that verged on delusion and I can admit that (now). I was a huge Oasis fan and some part of me always knew thought we’d get married. I’ll always have a soft spot for Liam even though Oasis got kind of wanky. But when he was young he was just a beautiful, angelic, heavenly mirage of eyebrows and pouty lips. I loved him!
3. Danny Zuko – infinite
(the first time I ever saw Grease)
I always played this game with my friend Samara at infant school and it started with us putting on her mum’s shoes. With the power of the shoes we went to Rydell High School. My boyfriend was Danny and hers was Kenickie. I also sung all the Danny songs though….so it was kind of weird.
4. Michael Owen – 2000
15 years old
The most boring entry on here. Embarrassed.
5. Michael Burke – 1988-1990
I didn’t really fancy newsreader and 999 presenter Michael Burke but – according to my family – I was obsessed with him as a toddler. Whenever he came on I would run up to the TV – accordingto my family – and say “Michael Burke, Michael Burke!”. Creepy or cute? I don’t know. But I still get reminded all the bloody time.
oh how i loved John Travolta….back then.
“back then” – very important words!!! Haha 🙂
Love this! I had a big crush on Jim Carrey around that age range as well! Had a poster of him on my wall and everything. I think I had a crush on Hawkeye from MASH at the same time though, what a player.
Thanks Anna!!!!! 😀
We are both clearly women of taste!!!! 🙂
You are a massive player!! Jim Carrey AND Hawkeye!!!! (nice choice!!!)
very interesting crushes Em, gives us real insight into why you turned out the ay you did 🙂 It’s even better now that we all know how you sound 🙂

Only kidding, thanks Rob 🙂 and I’m very shy that you’ve heard my voice hee hee!!!!
No need to be shy. Was quite cool 😉

Don’t change. It’s a wacky and wonderful list. I remember 999 and he was always shown whenever there was an analysis on Band Aid. I’m sure Jim carey was cool in The Mask but Cameron Diaz in that was just… Wow!
I loved 999!!!!!! And interesting about Band Aid lol.
If you look in my miscellaneous posts you’ll see one called Best Entrance Ever – and it’s Cameron Diaz in The Mask 🙂
Send me the link and I’ll check it out.

That is absolutely hilarious! Wonderful post!
Haha, cheers Geoff!!!!!! 😀
Michael Owen eh? That’s an interesting choice. What drew you to him?
I just thought he was fit!
So nothing to do with his personality then.
Nope! Nor his ball skills ho ho.
Ball skills, that cracked me up. By the way, did you see my Charmed Season 2 review?
Oh no but I will head over!! Cheers 🙂
You rock Emma.
Surely there’s some other footballer you had a thing for?
Freddie Ljungberg was VERY good looking haha!
I love David Beckham nowadays, so handsome and lovely.
Ljunberg modeled underwear for a while if I remember correctly.
Yes he did! I still have that image burned into my memory happily lol.
Oh I bet you do, him in a tight pair of undies.
To be honest, me and the rest of the female population! Haha.
I can imagine.
Liam Gallagher and Michael Burke – both ends of the Evolutionary Spectrum there! 😛
I assume Liam is high up? Ha ha ha (only kidding)
Well this list is certainly insightful. To get even more personal, i think there should be a movie blogger crush. Like, which blogger we have a secret crush on.
#toocreepy ? #ericwouldlikethat #hesonmylistforsure
I’d be up for that!! Not that…er….I have any….um….crushes on bloggers! Ha ha!
