I <3 NPH

Everyone remembers Doogie, right? Genius teenager, works with his dad in the hospital, wore hightops, created the first blog, was bffs with the kid who played Racetrack Higgins in Newsies (which he was in with Christian Bale, who played Batman in the movie I saw this morning, which told the story of the scariest Joker ever, which is why I am posting this in the middle of the night surrounded by my posse of vicious stuffed animals)...
Doogie Howser was my first celebrity crush, and, quite possibly, my first crush, and still, years later, when he came out, I was crushed; I was crushed that I never stood a chance. I am not sure what drew me to Doogie, over, lets say, Joey McIntyre...I believe it was the nerd factor we shared. I got what he was going through, he would have gotten what I was going through. Maybe I idolized him for doing what they would not let me do at the moment, be a doctor (not play, but do, treat, make people better) for that was my plan for pretty much forever until that pesky trypanophobia reared its ugly head. However, maybe I just thought his blond hair, goofy smile, and acid wash jeans made him dreamy...
Back to my point...
If NPH ends up in something, at any point, there is a good chance I will enjoy it.
For instance, Doogie Howser is one of my all time fav shows, I even have the box set (although I believe my parents are currently holding it hostage with my West Wing seasons until, you know, I finish this studying thing). Further, he was in, however short the stint, Rent, and that was the first stage musical that I really dug after the obligatory Annie, Cats, Les Mis, and Grease. And currently he is involved in 2 things I enjoy, one being Barney on "How I Met Your Mother" and the other being the character of Dr. Horrible singing about his yearning for a girl he is loosing to the jackass who keeps Dr. Horrible in line on Dr. Horrible's Sing-A-Long blog.
So, here's to you Doogie, for everything you touch turns into sunshine and daisies and with your angelic voice, you lift my heart up through the clouds.
And on that note, I end my day writing a post, because that's what Doogie would have done...
