My Ideal Man (And The List App)

15 Oct


Yesterday BJ Novak became Ryan Howard and launched an app.  I always wondered just how much of Ryan was in BJ and now I know.  Now we all know.

The app is called, simply, “The List App.”  BJ employed his famous friends to write lists for him for the launch, and I spent most of the night sending Lena Dunham lists to people I know and exclaiming, “She’s me, but I don’t even care!”

Seriously, this title: 10 Times This Week I Have Been A Stranger To Myself

Or this: Illnesses No One Believes I’ve Had But I’ve Had

I don’t even blame her for it, I just love her.

Eventually, I got to this list, John Mayer’s ideal woman, which I sent to a friend.  He read it and said “John left out big boobs.  Though I guess the v-neck hints at it.”

And then I laughed and laughed and laughed.

This conversation, and John, inspired me to make my own list.  A list of my ideal man, if you will.



Wears glasses

Calls his grandma*

Doesn’t care about gender roles*

Gourmet cook

Well dressed

Can talk music

Funny, but understated

Hates parties

Owns a library card

Identifies as a Ross

Will drive an extra hour for a good sunset

Food snob who appreciates Egg McMuffins

Obsessed with me*


PS: My name on The List App is jillianlorraine.  We’ll see if I do this thing.

    […] Obsessed with me. Hates Donald Trump. Funny. Smart. Neurotic. Doesn’t care about gender roles. […]
