7 Celebrity crushes?
nah... my last celebrity crushes were George Harrison and Paul McCartney in 1968
These days I do find several of them physically attractive in a mild, easy on the eye, sort of way, but I wouldn't call it a crush.
Later edit: OOPS!! I was supposed to tag someone, I think. But instead, I will leave it open for anyone to pick up.
