Tom Lenk

Tom Lenk, ca. 2008

Aho rūpam! (="oh beauty!" in Sanskrit)

Oh how we love you. We have loved you ever since we saw you on Buffy the Vampire Slayer (you turned us on to that series because we were turned on by you). We love you so much that we need to refer to ourselves in the plural when discussing you. We love you so much that we love you even more than we love Doogie Howser.

You are just a few days older than we are. You look younger than we do. You are almost the same height as we are. You are openly gay. (We cannot decide whether to be amused or resentful that the article attached to that last link says you are "average-looking.")

After Buffy finished, we worried about you because pictures like this one suggested you were letting yourself go a bit. It surprises us that you are susceptible to gaining weight. More recent pictures like the one above reassure us that you are back to your archly winsome self.

We are not sure if we want to meet you or see you perform live. We prefer to talk about you in blog posts and append the haiku that you inspired us to write:
Tom Lenk's not a wuss,
But he plays one on TV.
Delectable boy!
