because smart IS sexy


I love Dr. Spencer Reid.  his character is played by Matthew Gray Gubler.

while i am hooked to the show because it is intellectually stimulating and how they study the criminal mind really interests me, Dr. Spencer Reid, is the only reason the show remains awesome to me.  you know, a twenty-five year old with an eidetic memory, three PhDs and looks like he's modeled for Tommy Hilfiger, Marc Jacobs and American Eagle.

in this week's episode of Criminal Minds, the only girl who has ever been an intellectual match for Reid is in danger.  it's sad because now that Maeve is in danger, those hours on the phone they were having intellectual intercourse may be the only time they will ever get to spend.  i especially love their relationship not just because Maeve is played by Leverage's Beth Riesgraf, but the fact that they didn't have to see and be with each other.  they understood each other and read each other very well and that was enough.  Dr. Reid was always awkward around other people because of how special he is but with her, everything just came naturally.  they loved each other and they haven't even met.

it's sad that Maeve had to die just as they were supposed to first see each other.  sad.

Thomas Merton once wrote, "Love is our true destiny. We do not find the meaning of life by ourselves alone. We find it with another."
