The Chuck


You all requested it, so here it is. This is the only picture of himself IN THE WORLD that Chuck likes, so I present it to you. Isn't he cute in his tie and swanky sweater vest? Now imagine a cool tat on his forearm (Chinese characters), the piercing in his left ear (top portion, barbell), and him making funny faces, and it's a pretty well-rounded image of the man who's stolen my pea pickin' heart. He is a tantalizing mixture of straightlaced and ridonkulously goofy. I *heart* him!

Gotta go get my taxes done so we can go to Rocketboy's open house tonight (Rocketboy being the super secret code name for Chuck's 11-year-old son). Now, did I steal that from another blog? A book maybe? I have no idea.

*Note: this blog post should not be confused with Dooce's "Daily Chuck." Though my
Chuck does have one oddly canine tooth.

  10. My husband is the same way, he hates photos of himself, which is why I've never shared a photo of him on my blog.

    But really, we don't get to see one of you together? Looking all cute and in love? :)

  12. Glad to meet Chuck...sort of. We must get together some time. He must pass certain tests:
    1). How does he feel about witches?
    2). Does he like Greek and Indian food?
    3). Is he comfortable with staying in a bookstore for...oh say...at least a couple of hours?
    4). Does he revere coffee?
    5). What is the first thing he does when he enters a book selling establish with a coffee making place in the immediate vicinity--Does he go into seven heaven at the intermingling aroma of books and coffee or what? Explain your answer.
    6). How are his drinking skills?

    Anyway, glad you are happy and I cannot wait to meet him in person. As for hubby, his test will be how firm is Chuck's handshake--he has a thing about handshakes, and it has to be just right too! haha

  15. Wasn't Rocketboy a recent anime movie? I don't recall.

    Looks like a great guy...I'll stop short of commenting on his cuteness factor. Wouldn't want to have to turn in my man card.
