Today I woke up and the Hubs greeted me with laptop in hand. "This might help you understand the Benedict phenomenon better," he said, pushing play. "He took the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge."
This is what he showed me:
All I can say is:
OH MY!!! (Imagine me saying this like a Southern belle and fanning myself from the vapors.)
DAMN!!!! (Imagine me saying this like "DAY-UM" and licking my lips. Who knew he'd look so good in motorcycle leathers?)
SPANK ME, MR. GREY!!! (Imagine me saying this like a dim-witted, breathy ingenue in the Red Room of Pain. Did you see him in that suit? Wowza.)
OH, MR. DARCY! (Imagine me saying this like a prim and proper British lady who can barely contain her enthusiastic admiration for this gentleman caller. Benedict just whooped my favorite Hot Brit, Colin Firth's, ass with that wet t-shirt shot. Poor Colin didn't look that good coming out of the pond.)
I"m sorry, Ben -- can I call you Ben? It's just that I can barely spell Benedict and when I'm writing your name in a heart on my notebooks Jen + Ben just looks soooo much better.
As I was saying, I'm sorry that you're such a terrific actor that I couldn't see the real you come through. The funny you (which is damn sexy, by the way - said like Mel B on America's Got Talent - we watch a lot of TV in this house, don't jooodge) not to mention the rock hard ab side of you. Who knew you were hiding so much ... talent ... under that coat?
I'm officially signing up to be
Thank you to the founders of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge, because this has been soooo delightful. I already donated once, but I'll donate again after seeing Benedict's video! I know there are some people out there complaining about this challenge wasting water, etc., but as far as I'm concerned, Benedict can waste all the water he would like to.
*I've been told that Benny doesn't like Cumberbitch, because he's a gentleman. I can't argue with that.
