In honor of his birthday today- a revisit of- Hey Daniel Craig, call me, maybe?

This is a little ridiculous. A grown, married woman ogling over a grown married man. Ever since I first saw Mr. Craig (don’t you love a man with two first names?) in Casino Royale, he just had that certain panache. He was rugged, handsome, got dirty, wounded, tortured even. He fell in love, was scorned. He seemed cool and collected, but pained and vulnerable all at the same time. I could go on.

His other movies I find him the same. Not the same as in, always plays the same character type-casty stuff. But the same layers of intrigue and humanity. He just seems real to me. Not a caricature.

And maybe because he’s English, I have a soft spot for him. Okay, every spot on me is soft, but still, a British accent, with THAT body AND cleverness? Hummina hummina.

My mom doesn’t approve. She thinks he looks like Putin. My friend Christin thinks he’s always trying to do Blue Steel ala Zoolander style. My other friend Jen, says he does nothing for her. This, my friends, is not a problem. I don’t care what you think of him, I enjoy him. So I will gladly drool over him by myself.

So in my 40s I’m allowed a lust card. You know, a ‘Go Directly to GO and collect $200’ card. He’s on the CARD. He is THE CARD.

If Daniel Craig walks up to me and starts unbuttoning my blouse, McSweetie is just going to have to step aside. Just step aside McSweetie and look the other way, this might be hard to watch. Maybe I could be a Bond girl. Not the kind that dies in the last two movies, but a kickass agent who wears couture, then gets it unzipped by 007. Then shoots a few bad guys. But nothing with heights please. I’m scared of heights. Or maybe a Bond girl that dances in Spanx and swings off rope swings over pools?

After Daniel and I have our little rendezvous, he and McSweetie can share a pint of Guinness and discuss Liverpool football. The soccer kind.

Okay, so I’m not going to sleep with Daniel Craig! Sheesh! Easy there folks and your extra-marital judgeyness.

BUT let’s just say Ellen Degeneres arranges for me to have tea with Daniel somewhere in a quiet cafe outside of  London. He can talk about soccer, acting, his beautiful and talented wife Rachel Weisz (hate her) and then he can give me an Omega watch and sign my boobs. I mean, he can give me a signed Bond script or something!

So I made this video of me doting on Daniel. I’m hoping it will go viral and find him in his cozy abode outside London. He’ll call me, or email me, and we can be friends. Friends that snog each other in alley ways. Okay, I’m KIDDING!

Still, do me a favor. Spread the word. Send smoke signals, tweet those tweets. Let Daniel know that I love him and will carry his children! Actually, I won’t, I don’t want to be pregnant again. But if he has a dog, or some other smallish pet, I can carry that for him. And his groceries.

If you need to find me, I’ll be  watching Skyfall.

Check out my video and share people!

  1. Okay. Goody. I get to reply first on the DC post! Yeah!

    A couple of things to correct, dear little sis.

    It wouldn’t be Guinness. It would be Heineken. I thought you’d seen the trailers.

    And, you’re going to have to get in line in terms of possible inappropriate feelings towards Mr. DC. It’s probably wrong for me to say I’d have his children. But, hey. Who knows? I guess it would depend on the situation. I don’t understand your women friends who are left cold by him. Cripes. He gets me going.

    As far as spreading the word regarding your feelings for him, I’m unsure if the Spanx video out there is in your favor or not. He is supposed to have a tremendous sense of humor. If he ever sees that, we’d find out for for sure. Waddya think?


    • Well I know Heineken is the beer in the movie, silly. But he prefers a nice stout. Did you see the Esquire photo spread?
      Even Owen says he’s hot. It’s getting ridiculous.
      Spanx- I think I’m the new Spanx wearing Bond girl to be honest with you. I’m sure he’d giggle. I assume you’re seeing Skyfall tomorrow?

  2. I love him as well….:) Those movies are one of the few my husband and I agree on when we’re watching the same things on cable over and over again.

  3. Have you see him in the movie The Mother? I hear he is quite smoking smoldering hot in that.

  4. I just recently became a fan of his. Not sure what the hell was wrong with me before. I have this thing about becoming attached to the old Bond. He won me over. LOL

  5. Now I have the tune playing in my head honeslty…why oh why!!..I’m not greedy..I’ll settle for George Clooney…and hope u get DC…then you and I can sip skinny latte’s and rock big glasses in Hollywood while the the men play golf….sigh…now I am smiling sitting on my office desk…

  6. This KILLED me! Putin! You crack me up. And I love how your hair is all tousled like you and DC just…you know. Well played, sister.

  7. Jessica (@jessbwatson) says:

    You are hilarious and I bet if Daniel saw this he wouldn’t even be remotely scared.

  8. I love me some Daniel Craig. Can’t wait to see it! Also entered the rafflecopter.

  9. Jennifer Maidl says:

    I have recently discovered you and I am so glad I did! I have a mutual love of Daniel Craig. My hubby and I are going to see Skyfall tonight and I cannot wait!!

  10. And I will happily take those sloppy seconds when you’re done having your way with him.

    But I get what your friend is saying about the Zoolander thing. I think we should let him know.

  11. IsassSara says:

    Oh I do love this! I too have an English crush. Mine started 17 years ago and faded, then until last spring came flaming back to burn white hot. Gary Barlow. Good manna in heaven the man just does IT for me. I’ve watched hours of YouTube, read every article, book and magazine…made a shutterfly coffee mug with pics of him in his Jammie’s so we can have morning coffee together. If the man called me I would know his voice. I call him my English Muffin. My kids have finally exepted his picture on my home office desk. And ask me questions like “Mom, why do you like Gary? You are married to daddy…”
    Yes, Hubs has English blood…but using your word he lacks a certain panache. I love my Hubs, but Captain Barlow woos my woman-inanity. My lust card belongs to Gary Barlow. Cheers!

  12. I have to shovel snow otherwise I would figure out how to put up the link, but I have a pic on my Pinterest board in Truths Like It or Not that might make you a little nauseous. I got over DC when I found out he is short and wears cardigans. Hate to burst your bubble. Mine lasted for years. Check out Tom Hardy. He has a facebook page.
