Waaaaay back in the ’90s, when I was the production editor of Cosmopolitan magazine, I was obsessed with another DD … David Duchovny.
My office was plastered with pictures of The X-Files star and I was just a little bit crazed about him.
So I shouldn’t be so surprised when the editor of Woman’s Day called me one day and said she’d had a tip-off that I was the Aussie fan who’d been sending David sexually explicit jigsaw puzzles.
And it wasn’t April Fool’s Day.
I was MORTIFIED.
All these years later, I still think David Duchovny is rather delicious and I’m stoked about a new series of The X-Files premiering this month in the US. (Even though it’s getting bad reviews – Variety reports that “there’s a feeling that everyone is just going through the motions.”)
So I got indecently excited watching a spoof created by Jimmy Kimmel of the pair getting it on yesterday.
Here’s the clip …

Song of the day: Bree Sharp “David Duchovny”
PS I wrote a blog post back in May 2014 called Living in Hope detailing why I enjoyed the last season of David Duchovny’s Californication, despite it being really crass and frequently stupid.
I explained: “I blame it on DD, the sexy, erudite, witty beast. Please let there be single 50-year-old men like him lurking around in the real world.”
Voila, five months later, there WAS one in my life! And I unwittingly gave him the nickname DD on the blog.
Cue The X-Files spooky theme music …
