"Getting rid of everything that doesn’t matter allows you to remember who you are. Simplicity doesn’t change who you are, it brings you back to who you are."

Back in the day when I was a sweet young thing I had a crush on Rutgar Hauer. 

I think it was the whole LadyHawk thing with him and Michelle Pfeiffer.  What a hottie he was back then! 

Then again, weren't we all?

So I'm watching a Trueblood episode the other night.  Good old Rutgar has signed on to play Sookie's grandpa and is looking a bit eccentric.

SM walks into the room and starts laughing.  "Is that Rutgar Hauer?"  He asks.

"Yeah."  I reply somewhat defensively.  (Don't you laugh at my teenage crush.)

"His hair looks like yours!"  SM crows.

"HEY.  That's not fair."  I pause for a moment. 

"Well..."  Conceding his point.  Mine does have a tendency to get super bushy in this humid weather we've been having.

"At least mine's not white!"  I say throwing ole Rutgar under the bus.

What is that line from Steel Magnolias? 

"Honey, time marches on and eventually you realize it is marchin' across your face."

I always thought that one of the best things about being in a relationship with someone over a VERY long time is that they always remembered the "Young You." 

I know SM has gotten older but I still see the young guy I married and I sure hope SM still sees me as the young hottie he married. 

Even if I am starting to look like Rutgar on a bad day.



  1. Oh that's just not fair, picking on your crush! Who was his crush, and what does she look like now? Hehe.

  2. I LOVED him in Ladyhawk and it's still one of our favorite movies! I think we watch it three or four times a year and even Rhiannon likes it :)

    But, yeah, I have to agree, he looks a bit, uhm, unkempt if not downright disheveled.
