Diesel power

Oh, Vin Diesel. You’ve got me all mixed up. I remember the very first time I saw you. It was in the amazingly awful film (yet still one of my favorites of all time) The Fast and the Furious.

You mesmerized me up there on the screen. Your baldness. Your tattoos. Your huge muscles and thick neck. Your swagger.

Vin, you and I are as opposite as opposite can be. You are super cool. I am not. You look scary. I do not. You can do things like drive a Ferrari off a bridge and then parachute off of it all the while video recording your thoughts on government censorship (xXx, baby). I, sadly, cannot.

So why, every time I see you in a movie, do I feel this je ne sais quoi about you? Why, when I see you in this look:

…do I think you pull it off? Like really well?

There is no dimension in any universe where we could possibly go together. Everything says you should repulse me. Yet…

I am not the only one. I have a friend, who will remain nameless, who also believes you are all that and a bag of chips. Why? Again, it cannot be explained.

So I ask my readers, any other thrity-something, housewife-ish type out there feel the same weirdness for my man Vin?

    And here I thought for sure it would be Rob Schneider, Comic Genius.

    There will always be a special place in my heart for Rob Schneider. Even weirder that I feel both he AND Vin Diesel have it going on. I think I have some deeper issues there that need to be addressed.
