A crush without a name

April 15, 2002

i don’t even know his name, but still, i like him. he is clever and charming and slightly obnoxious — all dangerous qualities. he likes sex and has consummated his desire with nearly 30 women. he is the kind of man that i know i shouldn’t want but that of course makes me want him more. he is too good to be true. is he a dream? no, he is a character in a short story in a book, but i love him anyway.


  • I'm Christine, and this is a slice of my life—a sweet, rich, wildly indulgent slice that would taste really good with a scoop of Breyers vanilla bean ice cream. Read more >>

  • I run a darling, friendly, little graphic design studio.
    I look on the bright side.
    I take photos. Lots of photos.
    I wish on stars and on websites.

  • I built my first web site 7 years ago and got 15 seconds of fame. (It changed my life.)
    I launched, then relaunched, an online magazine.
    I admitted to several embarrassing crushes.
    I consumed more bacon than any human should and lived to tell the tales.
