To get through my "turning 30" crisis with Gene Hunt?!

I've been distracting myself from naval gazing by watching LOMmfollowed by A2A back to back over the last few weeks whilst snuggling my newborn dd...

Why is he so wrong yet Oh so right?! I feel like a teenager again blush

As for the turning 30 midlife crisis, I seriously thought I could avoid it but find myself pondering my future and the last decade!!

Anyone else? And why do these birthdays turn into such milestones? I have just had dc number 2 and it feels such a watershed moment.

I think I just need to be called Bolly by a misogynistic dinosaur and swoon against my better judgement grin

It's strange isn't it? He is so very very against type yet...

And it was John Simm that got me watching it after loving state of play, now I just have rude thoughts about them both blush

I guess there are worse ways of having a "midlife crisis" (though I'd hope it's more of a "third of life" crisis, oh god why am I bfing and can't get hammered next weekend?!!!)

nah - its not a mid life crisis - its hormones!

i can't begin to list all of my odd crushes whilst pregnant as they are far too embarrassing but gene is on there!

although i'm also heading towards 30 more quickly than i'd like! confused

I think it should be required watching. Keeley Hawes is gorgeous, too.

SeaShellsFiringUpTheQuattro Mon 22-Nov-10 17:04:51

She really is stunning. Serious girlie crush on her too blush

LoudRowdyDuck Mon 22-Nov-10 18:43:53

Oh, come on, you can't admit to fancying Gene Hunt and blush at that! It's the wrong way round! grin

Gene Hunt is a legend and one of my secret crushes along with House!

SeaShellsFiringUpTheQuattro Mon 22-Nov-10 19:30:12

Just realised I've blushed in every post, I really have regressed back to a gigging teenager!!

<bows> I see his mistress is here.

I'm afraid you have competition, my dear wink

I love Gene Genie. Have his calendar on my desk at work.
Don't think I will be able to watch the last episode of Ashes again though. I sobbed enough the first time sad

SeaShellsFiringUpTheQuattro Mon 22-Nov-10 19:35:27

...there are calendars?!!!

<scuttles off to google>

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 22-Nov-10 19:36:27

Yes I got it last year will find you a link.

stoatie Mon 22-Nov-10 19:38:14

I have his calendar in the kitchen - a thing of beauty to behold

KenDoddsDadsDog Mon 22-Nov-10 19:38:14

2011 Calendar!!

SeaShellsFiringUpTheQuattro Mon 22-Nov-10 19:41:47

Dh has just told me to calm down grin lol

fireblademum Mon 22-Nov-10 19:45:13

House and Gene Hunt
yes please i have to choose?

fireblademum Mon 22-Nov-10 19:46:17

ps ken dodds dads dog - like that joke!

LoudRowdyDuck Mon 22-Nov-10 19:49:07

grin I know what you mean seashells, DH just looks at me funny. Bless him.

I have to say, I am still massively disappointed by the last ep - I wanted a proper kiss with tongues!

<pervert alert>

<yes, and proud of it>


SeaShellsFiringUpTheQuattro Mon 22-Nov-10 19:58:07

I know, it was far too polite! The previous episode was much more tender and had more potential. Plus he looked HOT with the bow tie undone.
That has to be Mr December grin

LoudRowdyDuck Mon 22-Nov-10 20:11:46

Hmm ... think you lost me there, I wasn't mad keen on him in the penguin suit.

I found it a bit crap, because they offered the explanation that he was a bit crap with women because he died as a teenager - and who wants to feel like a dirty old lady about Gene Hunt?

HermyaAndThePomBears Mon 22-Nov-10 20:15:02

Seashells you would bu not to in my opinion.

SeaShellsFiringUpTheQuattro Mon 22-Nov-10 20:48:00

Hermya I knew you'd agree grin

Xales Mon 22-Nov-10 21:41:22

OMG drool at Gene Hunt, I thought I was the only wierdo!!!

Strange as a man like him would make me cringe away in disgust in real life lol

SeaShellsFiringUpTheQuattro Mon 22-Nov-10 21:48:31

Xales you are not alone - there is healthy competition on mn deprived nest of vipers wink
