From pretties to professors O___o

You know, ever since discovering Tenimyu, I've been going in circles from one pretty boy to the next, gathering up quite a collection of various magazine scans, videos, and whatever else I can on various pretties.  Sometimes (actually quite often) this fascination for pretty boys makes me worry if I'm really so shallow as to only care for appearances and is it possible for me to have the same heart-thumping feelings for someone who doesn't make that standard bar of being "pretty"?

Yesterday, I had a conversation with my roommate, Angela about university professors.  Through the discussion, I found that I've actually developed quite a "crush" on 2 of the best professors I've had.  1 of the professors was from my 1st year in uni and the 2nd one was just from last semester (2nd year uni).  They definitely wouldn't be categorized as a "pretty boy" but from the way they lectured, their points of view on issues, the personality they managed to inject into their lectures etc. made me enjoy going to their lectures and actually wishing the course occurred more often than just twice a week for 1.5 hrs each time.  Even though the heart-thumps weren't as immediate as seeing a picture of Kazuki and the next second fangirling out the window, it's relieving to know that I'm not completely fixated on looks (thank goodness ;____; <--tears of joy).  I find having a crush on profs is different from that of crushes on celebs.  With, for example, Kazuki, it's entirely just "omg he's so cuuuuuuuuute!!  EEEEE!!!  Lookit those eyes!!  Ah sexy sexy!!" and maybe after reading a blog or interview it's something like "Hahaha!! So dorky and adorable!!!", but with my profs it's more their personalities make them charming, the way they talk, their little jokes in class, the way they handle lectures, etc.  (which is a good thing I think, imagine going into a lecture where the entire time you're thinking "OMG My prof's so cuuuuuuuuute!! EEEEE!!!!"  .___.;;).

So...anyone else been through this or finding yourself going through this??  Do you think it's weird crushing on profs?  Am I the only one in this dilemma?  (Well not really a dilemma since it's not like I'm going to act on any of these crushes)
