Wasn't Q that douchbag on Star Trek: TNG?

After reading this article, I was stunned to find out that I haven't mentioned one of my all-time favorite crushes Pauley Perrette in quite a while. Over a year, in fact. That's got to be some kind of record for me.



Yeah, yeah, yeah. I'm one of those people that actually watches NCIS. You thought we were an urban myth, didn't you?  Sue me. The characters are actually fairly well developed for a crime procedural, and I just adore the lovely Ms. Perrette. And I think I've mentioned that Mark Harmon is one of my man-crushes before. That's right...I have more than one man-crush. Sue me again.

Anywho, it seems that these marketing folks asked a representative sample of other folks about a bunch of famous-type folks.  Questions concerning the familiarity and appeal of those famous-type folks.  Something called a Q Score.  And while the stunning Ms. P doesn't score very high on the familiarity chart, she is tied for tops when it comes to appeal or likability with a couple of guys named Tom Hanks and Morgan Freeman.  Isn't that swell?

Pauley Perrette used to write one of the very first blogs I ever read.  Way back in the day.  Great stuff about her life and the show and music and poetry and t-shirts and tattoos.  But she stopped when some of her more aggressive fans became a bit too stalker-ish.  No...it wasn't me, but thanks for asking  She was surprisingly available for a celebrity, responding to emails and whatnot.  A thoroughly pleasant individual with a very interesting life story.  Much more pleasant and interesting than her waste-of-space of an ex-husband

So congratulations to Pauley Perrette for being, um, likable! 

PS - I really don't care one way or another about the lives of so-called "celebrities".  If I found out tomorrow that she kills puppies in her downtime, I would be sad (for the puppies), but not really affected at all otherwise.  But from all I've read and from the couple of times that we chatted about music and t-shirts (really) via email, she seems like a good egg.  Plus, she's really cute.

I only know Coyote Shivers for Empire Records - and knowing that he is this hyper-grade bumhole is really souring my thoughts on one of my favourite films.

B.E. Earl said...

Steph - I'm sure he's a swell guy in real life, but he was a douche on that show. If I remember correctly.

badger - Sorry about that. But if you think about it, he was a dick in that movie too. And he wasn't in it for very long, so enjoy it anyway.

Slyde said...

B.E. Earl said...

Slyde - I'm EVERY grandmother's type.

Heff said...

Ok, "cute" I'll give her, but I 've never heard of her.

Faiqa said...

I've been crushing on Mark Harmon ever since he played Ted Bundy in "The Deliberate Stranger." I probably shouldn't have admitted that in public.

She seems nice and is pretty, but I would never describe a woman with that dye job as "cute." Unless, you think VAMPIRES who eat babies are cute.

hello haha narf said...

i'd do her.

B.E. Earl said...

Wabbit - That's okay, we'll leave her be for the time being.

Heff - she's "almost famous". Hey, she was in that movie!

Faiqa - What I would give for a vampire that eats babies. All we get now are vamps that pine for skinny high school girls. Feh.

Becky - I'd watch.

sybil law said...

She's definitely cute!! I like NCIS and watch it. I am really bad with shows and hardly ever remember when anything's on, though. Her ex husband - wow! Now he really is a mofoing douche!!

RW said...

I have no idea what the fuck you are talking about. Again. I have GOT to get up to date.

>sigh<

B.E. Earl said...

Sybil - That's what DVRs are for.

RW - You really don't. She was only recognized by less than half of the respondents. So you are just fine.

Avitable said...

I liked Mark Harmon in "Summer School", but that's about it. It's nice when celebrities seem to be decent people and don't let their fame go to their heads.

B.E. Earl said...

Avitable - St. Elsewhere, Summer School, The Presidio, Stealing Home, the jackass sheriff in Wyatt Earp, The West Wing...he had a few hits in there. I did love Summer School though. And he just did the voice of Superman for Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths, so...

Avitable said...

Yeah, he was good as the voice of Superman. I've never seen any of those except Wyatt Earp and Summer School.

Water Logged Canine said...

Yeah...she's adorable...If you like girls who look like they've just been hit in the face with a bag of nickels.

This bitch looks like she did a 100 yard sprint in a 90 yard gym.

Viva COYOTE*!

*We dogs pack together.

B.E. Earl said...

Doggie - Once again, this means we can no longer be friends. Please lose my number. I SAID GOOD DAY, SIR!

Kevin Spencer said...

Oh, she is adorable. Shame I missed her blog though, I would have loved to read that.

B.E. Earl said...

Kevin - the blog is still there, just dormant. If you wanna go back and read some of her stuff...

My wife likes Pauley (Abbey) a lot. One of the only reasons she watches that show. I'm stuck on Castle.

B.E. Earl said...

Marty - don't get me started on Nathan Fillion. He's man-crush #1!

Bruce said...

I have the same love / hate relationship with Kim Kardashian.....she is great to watch and look at, but at the same time...is a bit of a train wreck waiting to happen....

B.E. Earl said...

Bruce - except their is no hate for Pauley P on my part. All good vibes.
