All of those songs have nothing on the ultimate celebrity crush song by Bree Sharp: David Duchovny why won't you love me?
That song is sadistic AND hilarious!

CRUSHING or STALKING?
.
Stalk me Maggie Estep

I once wrote a poem called FUCK ME
So stalk me
I'm asking for it
Don't take your medication
Stalk ME

Write to me and say Dear Maggie I love what you do
You've got a really big mouth
Actually your mouth is a little too big
Anyone ever tell you what a big-mouthed bitch you are
God, you know I'm kinda sick of you
I mean, what's so great about you
How come you got on TV
I could do that
You ain't shit
You suck
I hate you
but I love you
I love you because I hate you
Can I have your children?
Will you shack up with me?


Oh sure
I'll shack up with you
I love stalkers
Especially when they hate me
But you knew that
That's why you stalk me
You're not fooled by my clever ruse
Bitch goddess? I think not
I'm just a sucker for punishment
So punish me
Spank me
Dominate my sock drawer
And stalk me


Don't stalk Jodie Foster, David Letterman or John S. Hall
Don't go through their trash
Their trash is boring
play with my trash
Hurry, I'm waiting
I'm pleading
Just come on and do it
Chew me choke me and stalk me
That'll teach me to write all that goddamned poetry

this sounds right, but I'm not sure. please elaborate.

To me, one of the defining qualities of a crush is the wistful sigh, "And she doesn't even know I'm aliiiive." The position of being on the outside looking in -- pursuing the object of affection as it eternally retreats -- is an important crush component.

To quote That Dog, "By definition, a crush must hurt. And they do."

definately an important crush factor I think.

maybe that's why I don't have any. I like goals that are unattainable (or almost unattainable), but I'm not a romantic so that unattainable crush stuff goes over my head for the most part.

actually, all things romantic seem unattainable at this point, so I've pulled myself out of that race. most people find that sad, but I just don't get that.

I don't get crushes in they sense that I plan on having a relationship with. It's more like a "One-Night Crush" or casual crushing as I like to call it. This is because I'm very happy in my current relationship, and all the casual crushing that I do, basically just gets me through my work day. When you're staring at boobies, trite, tendious shit goes by so much faster.

Piffle. You're sublimating your deep-seated need to crush in displays of lust.
Let the crush out! You have to release it sometime!

crushes always end for me when i sleep with the person i've been crushing on. it's like, "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" in my pants and somehow my heart syncs right up.

That could be my new favorite phrase!

I get all kinds of crushes, which stem from the "damn! that person is fine!" variety to the "oh my god, I want this person to be my best friend and we can go out to lunch and shopping and talk about everything in the entire world" kind. I think the friend crushes are more disappointing because almost no person can truly live up to the expectations of being the coolest person ever, and isn't it always more depressing when you're let down by a friend than by someone romantically? Maybe it's just me.

friend crushes are excellent.

I love when you stay up all night talking to someone you just met and you can't wait to hang out again and they become a lifelong friend.

there may be nothing better in the world.

I've got a crush on Pro tennis player Jennifer Capriati...
But she's only in NY, once a year, and I hate tennis...

I also have a crush on steak fries from the 5point in Seattle....

Love is the refuge of the weak.

That said, I have a crush on Oliver Perez, and whoever traded me Oliver Perez. 11.01 K/9! 1.12 WHIP! 60.6 AGS!
