A to Z Blog Challenge: D is for Daryl Dixon

When I see Norman Reedus:
I’m like *MEH*
But something happens when he transforms into Daryl Dixon that makes every female hormone in my body yell *SQEEE!!!!!*

still Squeeing*
….And now I’m back :D
What is this mystery disorder inside me?  Am I just a slave to really good marketing?
And although I call this my “Daryl Dixon Disorder” (how’s that for rocking the D’s???)
It’s something that has manifested in other shows as well:
I give you Kit Harrington:
Granted, he’s a tad easier on the eyes than Norman Reedus, but again, my girly parts are all “MEH”
That's until he transforms into the Ultimate Hormone Fest that is JON SNOW!!!!
*cue angels singing*

That’s the same guy, right?  WRONG!!!!  Jon Snow is a character that I want to fictionally marry and have many many fictious babies with….
Which, sadly, mirrors my real life as well.  There is something about a “bad childhood, emotionally confused, recovering from a bad break up” Man that makes my insides quiver. 
(And is also why I am blissfully single)
I am a hormonal slave to the emotionally unavailable Underdog. 
Yes, I have gained the wisdom that if you date, and/or marry someone who has severe emotional issues, they aren’t going to turn into tea and crumpets just because you love and accept them, warts and all.  They are still struggling for approval from whoever it was that emotionally scarred them in the first place and boy, do they know an emotional welcome mat when they see one! 
So how do I get this EMO gone bad magnet out of my DNA?  Lots and lots of practice. 
Someday my Daryl Dixon Disorder will evolve into my Johnny Depp Blissful Happiness
*On screen, off screen, no sunscreen?  OMG I would so do him!*

The Good Twin would like to point out the squee worthy brother of Connor MacManus:


Which gives me the opportunity to post the hottness that is Connor!!!!


  1. Norman Reedus = meh
    Daryl Dixon = meh

    Murphy MacManus = yes, please!!

  2. Murphy: We're sorta like 7-11. We're not always doin' business, but we're always open.

    Connor: That was nicely put.

    1. [after dropping through the ceiling on a rope and killing nine mobsters]
      Connor: Well, "Name one thing you're gonna need this stupid fucking rope for."
      Murphy: That was way easier than I thought.
      Connor: Aye.
      Murphy: You know, on TV you always got that guy that jumps over the sofa.
      Connor: And then you gotta shoot at him for ten fucking minutes, too.
      Murphy: Aye.
      Connor: Christ.
      Murphy: We're good.
      Connor: Yes, we are.

  3. I had never watched an episode of The Walking Dead until about two months ago so I never EVER understood the Daryl Dixon thing. Now I do. He doesn't make my loins go up in flames or anything, but I definitely get the appeal now. Sadly, I am clueless about the other two men in your post, though I LOVE the Irish-ness of the third guy's name. My BF is Irish and oh my...the accent! Am I right, ladies??

    1. OMG Mary! I could never date a man with an Irish accent! He'd start reading me his grocery list and I would be DONE! LOL! ;)

    2. Connor and Murphy play Irish brothers in the movie Boondock Saints - Connor's real name is Sean Patrick Flanery *swoon*

  4. I tried watching the Walking Dead..never got into it.

    1. And I was hooked 1/2 way into the first episode! LOL!

  5. I knew it couldn't just be me who keeps lusting after these types! Keep reminding myself I don't have to take care of or fix everybody!

    Thanks for the A-Z swoons!

    1. :) We should start a support group!

  6. Oh dear :) I too tend to lean towards fixing ... bad idea! It doesn't work. Ever. Haha
    A-Z :)

    1. It doesn't! So why don't we learn from this ever? I blame all the romance novels I borrowed from my Mom in gradeschool...

  7. Characters are often more attractive than actors. It's not just the good looks (although they help) it's also the *personality* of the character that is appealing.

    Then again I have long-standing crushes on Donatello, Nightcrawler & Sam Gamgee, so maybe I'm not the best judge of good looks.

    1. LOL!!! I was crushing on Lance from Voltron mainly for his sarcasm :)

  8. This is a disorder that I am afraid that I may have as well. Sigh....

  9. I totally get what you mean about Daryl Dixon. (W00F!) :-)
