Thank you, Australia

On this special day of thanks, I feel compelled to express gratitude for a very important person in my life. Hugh Jackman. 

Ho. Ly. Crap. We went and saw Australia tonight. I think it was about Australia or something, but mostly it was about Hugh Jackman. Hot Hugh Jackman. Hugh Jackman with his shirt off. Hugh Jackman riding his horse. Hugh Jackman sweating. 

I am grateful for Hugh Jackman. 

The movie is epic and long and I think my salivary glands are exhausted from all the drooling they did during the three plus hours of Hugh Jackman and stadium seating. I can’t seem to stop saying his name.

Seriously though, it’s worth the $8.50 to see it on the big screen (clarification: to see Hugh Jackman on the big screen). It’s really like three movies all rolled into one. Imagine seeing Indiana raid the arc, visit the temple, go on the last crusade, then decide he really wasn’t done and find aliens, all in one night. Kind of exhausting. And exhilarating. Hugh Jackman stars in it.

I would also like to thank People Magazine for appropriately naming Hugh Jackman the sexiest person in the universe (next to Jason, whom they would have named sexiest human had they known of his existence. He has to keep a low profile, you know, secret agent stuff).

Do you think Jason would mind if I got a poster of Hugh Jackman for our bedroom?


  1. I have one word for this….ewww!

  2. You crack me up! BTW, what is with sooo many people going to the movies on Thanksgiving anyway? I just talked to 6 other girls who all went & saw a movie today. Now, I feel cheated because I just spent time with family & there was NO Hugh Jackman involved. 😉

  3. I heard that Nicole Kidman can’t act her way out of a paper bag in this movie. And Hugh has lost his shininess for me lately. 🙁

  4. I love that you talk about other men on your blog! I want to go and see that movie too, but we are going to Twilight again!!

    Oh come on Sylvia, give a lonely girl a break.

    Kristina, trust me. This movie is Hugh epic. He glows.

  6. You’re cracking me, and Sean because he asked what I was laughing about so I read it to him, up!

    I love me some Hugh, I’ll have to hit that one.

  7. yep. Just go ahead and get a poster of George Clooney while your at it. Are there any more men I should know about?

  8. Ditto. We saw that Wednesday night. And I didn’t even have to beg my husband to see it, because he’s a junkie of the Cinematic Beauty variety.

    It was a thing of beauty.

    The green-screen scenery shots, too.

  9. Happy Thanksgiving…and I totally want to see that movie. I’m not a huge Nicole Kidman fan, but Hugh is hot…plus the movie looks like it has potential. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving. I keep feeling like you’ve got to be getting close to not being a single parent anymore, right? Tell me he comes home soon!

  10. I think it’s awesome Jason just wrote. I always wonder what he thinks of these kind of posts.

  11. Neil watched X-Men last night. I don’t think he’d have made that choice…

    …if he’d known. Gah. The hotness.

  12. I have to agree, Hugh Jackman is hot. He looks like a man who knows how to treat a woman right. He’s no pretty boy, he’s a mans man, who likes to sing and dance too. That’s not a very common combo, come to think about it, I think he is the only man who could pull it off. He would do well in OKLAHOMA! a dancing, singing ranch hand, grrrr, come here lova’ boy!

  13. wait, didn’t he star in Oklahoma?

  14. So it sound like the epic of Hugh is a great flick…I was eventually going to see it because I’m a fan. Did you see your article yet?

  15. I have to tell you that I love this post. It’s still one of my favorites, I’ve read it to I don’t know how many people.

    Love you Annie!

  16. I loved your note about Australia and could not agree with you more. While I loved the movie for the sake of being a good film, seeing Hugh Jackman douse his beautiful naked chest is worth watching the movie alone. SIGH SIGH SIGH. The man is perfection.
