It began with a 3-hour long performance of Benjamin Britten's opera 'Billy Budd', which I've wanted to see for a long time, and found out about a month ago that Glyndebourne opera company were doing an online screen of the 2010 performance of the show. Anyway, it was very good, and as it's an all-male cast, there were plenty of opportunities for eye candy. The chap who played Billy was particularly pleasing on the eye...
This led me to consider that I have a LoveFilm disc to watch. 'Lawless', with Tom Hardy in it as some gun-toting gangster. Now Tom Hardy is very high up my "I'd Tap That" list.
(Sums up my feelings quite succinctly)
So then my brain went down a very enjoyable path of "so who exactly would join Tom on "Sally's I'd Tap That List"?
So I present, in no particular order... The List.
JON SNOW! For those of you who haven't watched 'Game Of Thrones' I advise you to do so immediately. Saying "I'm not really into fantasy" is no excuse. I don't much like fantasy either, but GoT is SO SO SO the exception. Get to Season 3, then we'll talk. Because that's when THAT happens, and THAT AND THAT AND THAT.
I got off topic.
Kit is the pretty boy of the show. But honourable mentions should also go to Jaime Lannister and Robb Stark, and a bonus to Tyrion Lannister for proving that little can be hot as well.
But Kit, all Night's Watch in black and noble and well-meaning and downtrodden and lovely and tasty tasty... Lovely.
Oh Josh... My original dfhafhsdafaguh (that's a wordless typed expression of "You just made my ovaries explode, damn you")
Now he's just in the realms of "so cute!" But I don't think I'll ever not love him. If he's in England, I'll make every realistic attempt to see him perform because he's my cheesy little happy drug.
Bradley Cooper & Gerard Butler
A bonus twosome having a man-date at the Wimbledon Men's Final. Pretty much the best thing about this match, apart from a BRIT WINNING was the camera continually going to this pair of friend-shaped lovebirds. And they were SO into it!
I dunno, just these 2 together makes me chuckle. Gerard... Reasonably tasty... But I'm Bradley all the way. I think it's those baby blue eyes and the butter wouldn't melt face.
Tim is the most talented person I've ever encountered. And in things I admire completely. Plus he makes me laugh. For those reasons I can overlook the mad hair. He is the perfect example of the inside of someone's head winning me over LONG before the external appearance got a look-in. Now I want to have a 3-hour lunch with him AND have his ginger babies.
Now, 2 bonus categories:
Firstly, Men over 40 who still qualify as a "Tap That".
No... Actually, just give me the entirely fictional Jack Bauer... Grrrr
Had a soft spot for him since I can't remember when... But saw him recently in Macbeth and it just reminded me that "oh yeah... I like him as well."
Second bonus category - The girl crush.
So which lovely men (or women!) are on your list?
