So for the love of God, who turned up the friggin' heat??? It's April!!! My allergies do not approve. I am dire need of a dose of good,old fashioned, 72 degree days, still-cool-enough-for-jeans SPRINGTIME!!
We all know what a fan I am of television (hey, don't judge me- I read alot of books!) so I was so sad to learn that Bea Arthur passed away! Golden Girls is one of my all-time favorite shows (The Wonder Years being my number one, in case you wondered...), as it was part of our sleepover-at-Mom-Mom's ritual. Marla, Mom-Mom and I would pile into her bed and watch Dorothy, Rose, Blanche and Sophia fling insults and cheesecake at each other. I didn't get the jokes until I was older and re-discovered Golden Girls in syndication, but Mom-Mom used to crack up at it! I remember thinking that when I grew up, I wanted to eat cheesecake in my robe with my girlfriends and talk about stuff. I wanted to be like Blanche (not slutty so much as pretty) but now I know I'm more like Dorothy- a smart-assed wise mouth who could fling sassy remarks with the best of them but knew how to be strong for her friends. And Mom-Mom...she was the best of all of them. Smart like Dorothy, sweet like Rose, gorgeous like Blanche, and wise like Sophia.
