TV Land nerd

I don't know why I'm addicted to cheesy retro sitcoms.

I've been through several fazes: Golden Girls, Designing Women, Andy Griffith Show, Happy Days, Bewitched, etc.

The latest is Three's Company. I've flown through the first two seasons and just starting the third. And that's only in two weeks.

I've even started to wear my hair like Chrissy by complete accident. I didn't notice it until my dad pointed it out.

(My hair looks like this, please save me).

Anyway, Joyce Dewitt is in town for a month doing a musical theater production. The theater is across the street from my apartment building and I am dying to run into her. I'm not sure what to do though. Find out where she's staying? Casually stake out all the fancy restaurants nearby? Stand at the backstage theater door for hours, waiting for her to leave? I don't want to be a stalker.

Oddly enough, I always seem to run into the right people while I'm going through each sitcom phase.

When I was going through my Andy Griffith phase in 2003, I ran into Bryce Dallas Howard (Ron's daughter) in Los Angeles and got her autograph. When I was going through my Happy Days phase in 2006, I ran into Marion Ross at a seafood restaurant in Kansas.

So the chances are looking good I will run into Joyce. After all, there's a Whole Foods standing in the way between my apartment building and her theater. And isn't that where those Hollywood people shop for food? Hmmmm...? Hehe.

Now I just need to stay away from the mini pony tails and curling iron...

Good idea Jenny-Benny! Can't wait to hear about your brush with fame :-) Also, you forgot about the phase where you were into watching Sweet Valley High...And by you, I mean "we..." and by phase I mean "every day after school."

You know how many times in my life I use the phrase "I know, right?"

I love this blog already.

Oh and from far away, you look a bit like Katie in this picture.

I think your hair looked cute like that. I even have a pic of it on my camera to prove it! Umm I hate to admit it but I've seen every episode of Golden Girls at least twice.
