Zach

Zach

Dave:  Zach, Jessica Alba was just voted the, you know, the hottest celebrity by men for this year.

Zach:  That sounds about right. I fully agree with that.

Dave:  Yeah, I would go with that, as well. Do you have any crushes on any celebrities?

Zach:  Well, I used to have a crush on her when I was watching Dark Angel a few years back.

Dave:  Ah, yeah.

Zach:  That’s a classic. Then there’s always Heather Graham.

Dave:  Oh, yes!

Zach:  She’s very, ah, a very nice person, it seems like. She’s got a new tv show out right now that, I don’t really enjoy the tv show she’s on right now, but it’s still fun to watch.

Dave:  Yeah. When I was a kid, I had a – this is really funny – I had a crush on the sorceress from the HeMan cartoons.

Zach:  Oh yeah, what was her name, like, She-Ra or something?

Dave:  Yeah, yeah. But, I used to have the biggest crush on her. As I got older, I, kind of, moved away from the animated characters to the real women, like Christina Ricci. I used to have a thing for her.

Zach:  Oh yeah, she’s pretty nice looking. And then there’s also, ah, when I was kid, I was into, um, Annie, Little Orphan Annie...

Dave:  Really?

Zach:  ...from the old movie, yeah. That was way back, though.

Dave:  I have a friend, a Japanese friend, who’s studying here in Portland right now, and she tells me that the reason she came to the U.S. is that she wanted to find and marry Brad Pitt.

Zach:  Oh yeah.

Dave:  Yeah, I always hear women saying they like Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp.

Zach:  Well, they have a lot of work to do. I think Brad Pitt is taken, now.
