When I planned my wedding years ago, I forgot to invite several important family members because I addressed envelopes only when names popped into my head. I believe I may have invited Donny Osmond, but forgot Uncle Larry.
So I'm going to start practicing. Writing lists, that is. To help ease me into things, I've started with something fun, like all my favorite shows from the 1980s.
- The A-Team. Because Murdock was hot.
- The Facts of Life. George Clooney with a mullet was still George Clooney.
- Manimal. I think I was the only person who ever saw this show. There were these gross pulsating bubbles on the guy's face every time he turned into an animal.
- Diff'rent Strokes The apostrophe in "Diff'rent" never made any sense to me.
- Misfits of Science. Once again, I believe I was the only person to have ever borne witness to this sci-fi drama. Though it did launch the career of Courtney Cox.
- Growing Pains. Kirk Cameron, before he got all Jesus-y, was the bad boy every 13 year old girl thought she'd marry.
- Little House on the Prarie. I thought it was really cool when they blew up the town at the end of the series. And what was with all those orphans Ma and Pa Ingalls kept adopting? They must of had like 20 of them by the finale.
- V. I know this was originally a miniseries, but it entered the television line-up as a real series for about 2 months. Once again, my viewership doomed it.
- Fame. Totally loved the piano-playing Bruno. My boys' lessons are starting to make sense now, right?
- 60 Minutes. Every Sunday. *tick tick tick tick* It meant Monday morning was right around the corner and I needed to get cracking on homework.
She would have never forgotten Uncle Larry.
