Snippets of Wonderfulness

At about 2 pm today, I noticed that I had a tiny piece of lint stuck to my calf INSIDE of my pantyhose. I have no idea what it was or how it got there. I chose to assume that the lint had not been there all day or that no one had noticed it. And then at 5:30, I noticed that I had a huge stripe of deodorant on the bottom of my shirt. I was wearing a cardigan type sweater over the shirt, so maybe no one noticed, or maybe everyone just pretended not to notice because they felt bad for me since I was obviously having some wardrobe issues today. At least I didn't meet with any clients today. Gah.

I have developed a theory that a "person" I know may actually be a robot. If my life were the horrible 1980s tv show Small Wonder, this person would be Vicki, the robot that a family was trying to pass off as a person for some weird 1980s reason. In this scenario, I would be Harriet (scroll down), the girl with scary pigtails who was always trying to prove that Vicki was a robot. My whole robot theory was based on the facts that "Vicki" did not understand jokes and has had the exact same hair length for about 6 months. This week, "Vicki" told a joke AND got a haircut. I guess I was wrong. Or maybe that is what the robot wants me to think! I am confused.

H has been getting up early in the morning and watching Saved By the Bell. Then he usually comes upstairs as I am getting ready and summarizes the episode(s) he saw that morning. What is most sad about this story is that I actually remember most of the episodes. H is so cute though. The other morning he came upstairs and said, "Kelly NEVER should have got a job at The Max!"

haha...I admit I sometimes watch Saved by the Bell in the mornings. It's a much better start to my day than CNN Headline News.

I loved "Small Wonder" and "Saved by the Bell." Did I put that in past tense? Oops.

The word verification: prtitxii. Make your own jokes people.

Don't worry, that lint would not have been there all day. It was probably crotch lint that only worked its way down as the day progressed ;)

I knew H was a keeper! Saved by the Bell was classic.
The other day I was trying to explain to my lovely friend Deanna (very pop culture deprived) who Leah Remini was. I said, "You know, the one from King of Queens, or as I will always remember her, Zach's summer girlfriend"
I need a life.

I remember pantyhose lint from when I used to wear skirts everyday. At least you didn't get a run! :)

I recently spent the entire day with an enormous toothpaste splotch on my pretty purple shirt, and no one said a thing. It was like the time Mr. Belding's face turned maroon after using the zit cream.

Christine said...

Aww, I used to watch both of those shows.

And I am willing to bet that she IS a robot and she's just switching things up to throw off the suspicious.

I am amazed how often I have seen "Small Wonder" mentioned in blog entries. Two years ago I would have assumed no one but me remembered that show. I should have known better, of course.

And Nat's comment is awesome... I don't remember Zach's summer girlfriend, but I remember Leah Remini as a friend from Samantha's old neighborhood on "Who's the Boss?" They tried to create a spin-off series where she and several other girls were models living together in some house somewhere... I believe it was called "Living Dolls," and there may be only five people in the world who remember that show.

I miss having cable for the simple fact that you can watch Saved by the Bell. I also Netflixed it and watched 20 episodes in one weekend.

"I'm so excited, I'm so....SCARED!"

lizgwiz said...

I think "Vicki" is definitely a robot. Obviously she was just due for her 6-month programming adjustment. Just like a robot to try and throw you off like that. ;)

See, another reason not to wear pantyhose!

stef, I also remember "Living Dolls." Guess that makes 6.

OK, the same thing happened to me on Monday. I was wearing a brand-new teal colored shirt with white print. I wore a red bra under it and guess what??? The bra totally showed through the white print parts.

THEN I realized that the new super strength antiperspirant I was wearing discolored patches under my arms. Luckily the shirt already has a broken-in kind of look, so I don't think anyone noticed.

You are not alone.

The Small Wonder robot girl came from my very small hometown -- as did another AWESOME pop culture figure, Ashley Angel. I am so proud.

I remember that show "Living Dolls" that Stefanie is talking about, too -- it had Michael Learned in it as well as Leah Remini and, OMG, I just looked it up on IMDB and apparently Halle Berry was on it as well! I just remember wanting nothing more than to have my name be "Charlie" after watching that show. So sad.

Paisley said...

I never got into Saved by the Bell. I think I was too old for it when I first noticed it. It drives me crazy.

I loved Small Wonder. Now I wonder how it ever got past network executives who actually thought it was a great idea for a show!

metalia said...

I totally watched both of those shows. Am I the only one who was totally annoyed (even at the tender age of 11) with the corny magic tricks that Max performed for the teens of Bayside?

Jenny said...

Remember that Saved by the Bell when Jessie was a pill addict and Zach had to slap her around?

That was awesome.

Why does no one else spell his name "Zack"? I like to spell it with a "k" so that it goes better with Zack Attack. And if you do not know what Zack Attack is... then I will tell you. It is Zack's band.

stefanie said...

R--IMDB confirms that you are correct and we should all be spelling it "Zack." So sorry. :-)

JayAre said...

Ok, here's how lame I am - I loved Saved by the Bell so much that when I was 12 me and one of my equally lame friends went to some event specifically to meet the cast. I shook Screech The Future Porn Star's hand. And Zack was RUDE. And that is all I remember. Except that seeing, "I'm so excited... I'm so... SCARED" in someone's comment really cracked me up.

Em said...

H is sooo right! The Max had "disaster" written all over it. She should've realized that she just wasn't strong enough to handle the pressures that come with working for a college-aged french fry cook manager. Tsk Tsk.
