I've been wanting to blog lately but haven't found a movie that I could blog about. So instead here are my thoughts about some songs.
Don't you love it when you find a song that you completely adore and can't stop listening to? I've actually fallen in love with two different songs. "Here Comes the Sun" by the Beatles and "Marry Me" by Train. I can't stop listening to these two songs! Those of you who know me really well are probably laughing right now, but I don't care. These songs (and conversations with my parents about who I should marry) have caused me to think. So I'm going to share my list (in no particular order) of what I want my husband to be like. (Feel free to find the songs on YouTube and listen as you read. That's what I'm doing as I type.)
My husband must be a nerd. This is an odd requirement to have but let me clarify. I am not a cool person. And 'cool' people are often so boring. All my friends are nerds and we have so much fun discussing all the random things that we're passionate about. I want to have these discussions with my husband. I'd like him to have an opinion on who exactly would win a fight if it was between Gandalf and Dumbledore. Or if Capt. Kirk or Capt. Picard is the better Enterprise captain. I want him not to mind when I rant about how 2001: Space Odyssey is the stupidest movie ever. I want him to have rants of his own; it can truly about anything, I won't mind.
Mr. Right will be comfortable. This sort of breaks down into two different categories. I must be comfortable around him. I'm going to be spending the rest of my life with this man and I don't want to have to forever walking on pins and needles. I also want him to be comfortable around me. I want him to know that he can do or tell me anything and I'll still love him. The other half of this is that he must be comfortable with himself. If he isn't comfortable with himself, or confident in himself, I'm not sure he could be confident in anyone else.
My husband is going to be organized. I am not an organized person. My room doesn't look like a tornado hit it. If a tornado hit it, it would be cleaner. I can't marry someone who isn't organized or our home will be buried under mountains of useless stuff. I, being the free-spirited person that I am, won't be bothered by the mess. At least till my mother comes over for a visit, then the house might be cleaned.
The love of my life will be strong, yet sweet-hearted. I'm a very sunny person but I can be horribly sarcastic at times. It's a strange mixture, I know. I need someone who won't shrink under the occasional sarcastic comment. But instead make me never want to say anything like it again by being sweet and kind and gentle. This also applies to that I will expect my husband to lead me, so he needs to be strong to carry the front. But he needs to lead with compassion and with love.
My husband must love music. I adore music, in almost all forms. I am constantly surrounded by it. So the man I spend my life must enjoy it as much as I do. It'd be wonderful if he also had an eclectic taste, he wouldn't mind if I listened to the Beatles, Sixpence None the Richer, and TobyMac in the same sitting. I'd love for my husband to be able to sing. I don't care if he's a tenor or a bass, I just want him to sing. If he could also play an instrument of some sort that would be amazing. He could play and I would sing...
I'm done now. I have many more thoughts on this subject but I don't want to bore you. Will I ever meet this man that I have described? I don't know...perhaps. I suppose it would just be a question of whether or not I'd get the nerve to say hello. :)
