I Think I Love You!

Yesterday, DAVID CASSIDY was a guest on Oprah. And I have to say, except for the long flowing brunette hair and crazy bell-bottom pants, he really has aged beautifully. It was so exciting to hear his old hits, to listen to him tell the story of his career, and how he found "normal" again. I found it particularly interesting that he's so insistent that his son finish college before he pursues his own music career. I loved how proud he was of his daughter and the kudos he gave to his gorgeous wife for their great marriage. But in the attempt to be completely honest here, my friends, I must confess to you that I danced and sang right along with all the DAVID CASSIDY clips and the two songs that he performed at the open and close of the show. Every. One. Of. Them.

My two older boys were completely bewildered, shaking their heads, trying to tease me out of my delirium. They even tried to leave the room. But now, I made them stay to share in the reminiscing. I had a blast! I kept trying to tell them what everyone loved about him and why girls my age and older were crazy about him, but they (being boys) didn't get it at all. At dinner, they proceeded to tell The Boss about my insane behavior and tease me about being stuck in the 70's (which I'm totally not, I'm definitely more of an 80's girl!). It's a good thing I'm secure and confident: their teasing and jesting could have really gotten to me. That is, if I could have heard them over the refrains of "I Think I Love You!" running through my head all night!

P.S. Yes, I know the Cosby Show was mixed in there somewhere, but I was too caught up in remembering all the DAVID CASSIDY songs that I could think of. The Huxtables were great, funny and all that. But they were no DAVID CASSIDY!

I watched it too, but sorry to say, David Cassidy means nothing to me. I know the name, but that is it. Before yesterday, I wouldn't have been able to tell you anything about him.

I enjoyed watching the Cosby part. I grew up with the Cosby's. I have never seen an interview with them. I always find it interesting to know what they are doing now.

David was a cutie, but I was a Shawn Cassidy fanatic...my first crush, I saw him in concert when I was in 2nd grade, had the posters, t-shirts and watched The Hardy Boys every week.

Be still my beating heart.....

I saw it too. I remember watching re-runs of the Partrige Family when I was a kid. I think they were right after the Monkeys. :) I was a bit too young for crushes, but I definately remember the songs.

Okay Thrills, just say it out loud: I'm waaaaaay older than you. Thanks :)

Melissa - Shaun was too sweet for me, I liked the older "bad boy" rep of his big brother. Plus, I've never really loved the blond thing. Except for my Shaggy - who really looks like Shaun lately :)

Classic - You are almost as bad as Thrills: "a bit too young" - HA! If you were watching reruns, you were waaaaaaay too young :) :)

My sister and I think my mom is crazy for oohing and aahing over Pierce Brosnen (sp??) I think that kids will never understand things like that:)

My sister had a crush on him and grew up watching the Partrige Family. I on the other hand remember some reruns. I had a crush on Michael J. Fox in my years. My sister had a poster up in our room of him. :)
