Friday Opinion Post ~ My Internet Crushes
Sometimes there are women who I deem “sexy” or attractive because of their personality, other times, they’re attractive because of their sense of humor and other times they’re attractive because of how damn intelligent they are. Sometimes it’s a combination of all these things while being pretty damn easy on the eyes.
This post is about 4 women who I have “internet crushes” on and with whom everyone should know about. All I have to say is, “You can thank me later for introducing you to them. Now back off!”
1 – Sunny Choi
If there’s always been one thing on my list of things to do, has been to learn to play the piano. It’s my favorite instrument and although I will learn to play it one day, I can guarantee that I’ll never be able to do what this woman does with a piano (and there’s no way in hell I’ll look as amazing doing it).
Attached is my favorite one of her “interpretations” ~ Neyo’s Beautiful Monster:
2 – Allie Brosh from Hyperbole and a Half
This woman has brought tears to my eyes…from laughing so hard. I’m not sure how exactly I found her blog, but all I can say is I’m damn grateful I have.
I think everyone should read Sneaky Hate Spiral. Seriously, you’ll be much happier if you did. Here’s an excerpt:
Sneaky Hate Spiral
Most of the time, I’m pretty even-tempered. Aside from the odd nervous breakdown or caffeine-induced bliss-seizure, I have the emotional variation of sand. However, every once in a great while, I’ll lapse into what I like to call a “sneaky hate spiral.”
Sneaky hate spirals begin simply enough. In fact, that is one of the hallmarks of sneaky hate spirals – they are merely the confluence of many unremarkable annoyances.
Your day begins poorly.
3 – Denise Minger from Raw Food SOS
I don’t even know where to start with how awesomely attractive this woman is. This is the woman who basically looked into all of Colin T. Campbell’s research from the China Study and then took a huge shit on it…or better yet, used his own research to show that his conclusions were just wrong and highly biased.
Beyond that, she also has shown how wheat consumption is much more highly linked to heart disease and obesity than meat.
If you decide to read her blog, please be prepared to come away smarter while simultaneously feeling like a slacker for not being as smart as you can be.
Read her original critique of the China Study here.
To keep with the theme, here’s a video of her – How to Win an Argument with a Vegetarian (pure awesomeness):
4 – Nia Shanks
Whenever I want to convince a woman I train that lifting heavy weights won’t get you “big” I just refer her to Nia Shanks website. Besides being a strong badass, she’s getting other women to join her in her badassery. In other words, be inspired and go lift heavy things.
I told you they’re awesome.
