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.
Note: Remember to play the Bug-Eyed Trivia Challenge every day. Who watches NCIS? Me and your grandmother...together in bed.
