A 4th Grader Scorned!










Ever since I saw Kristanna Loken's character Paige, (ohmigodshe'ssoooohot) in the L-Word, season 4, paired up with Shane, I have rented or watched everything I can get my hands on with Kristanna Loken in it. I've watched The Dark Kingdom, Bloodrayne, & Air Panic are on their way. I've seen several episodes of the tv series, Painkiller Jane, which is really fun, and I'm waiting for Lime Salted Love to be released. She looks better with a little meat on her bones, in Terminator 3, she was awesome, but thin and machine-like.
I'm like a junkie, trying to get my fix. Why am I obsessing over her? I asked myself the same question. I dated a woman for a short time this past fall that looked a lot like her. Actually for me, the woman I dated came first, because I never noticed Kristanna before I met this woman. She's not as tall, Kristanna is 5'11''. She has dark hair and eyes, but the same facial features, the slight cleft chin, the thick yummy lips, the same body type, and they carry themselves similarly. That must be it, I thought. I was extremely physically attracted to this woman, so it made sense.








Then a couple days ago, someone was asking me about when I first knew I was gay. I said, I think I've always known. I found out there was a name for it, and there were others like me, when I was 13, but growing up I always had crushes on babysitters, and teachers, especially in the 4th grade. My teacher's name was SueEllen Aiken. I had one of those wallet sized pictures of her I carried around with me. I put it under my plate when I ate dinner, and I remember my mother teasing me, "You have a crush on your teacher." I did have a crush on her. I got all straight A's that year because I listened to every word she said. I wanted to impress her. She even threw the football with me at recess a couple times, to a tiny lesbian, that's like going steady. She was a goddess, but alas, she broke my heart at the end of the school year when she announced she was marrying some dufus, and moving to one of those square states in the middle of the country. What kind of woman teases you with football, then runs off and gets married?! Oh, the humanity! I was telling this story when a picture of SueEllen came into my head, and I'll be damned if she doesn't look like Kristanna Loken! Wow, sometimes you don't realize just how far back stuff goes. It's crazy, but it's true. I wish I had her picture from back then, so I could post them side by side.


Come to Mama!

Yeah, Kristanna Loken is HOT and pretty dang smart intellectually. However, she needs to develop some tact. I mean, I understand she was frustrated during her time on The L Word, but I don't think it's a good idea to slam the hand... Of course, most of her slamming occurred after she had Painkiller Jane lined up and she thought she could safely get away with it. TV is a fickle medium. I enjoyed her in PKJ but I can see why it didn't get a following. The script writing and acting were uneven (though she was good). The guy that wrote the comic it was based on said they weren't really following his concept (I suspect that was his way of distancing himself from the result). Let's hope she finds a good new project and keeps her opinions less public.

theweyrd1, I don't know anything about what she said to whom. I don't really care either. I enjoy watching her, and will continue to enjoy her, blissfully unaware of something she might have said to offend someone. (bury's head in sand) I can't hear you!

All I can say is that if your first crush voluntarily moved to a square state, she was clearly not good enough for you, no matter how talented she was with a football.
