Game Shows Rock

October 24, 2003

I’m having a fat morning.

I’ve mentioned this to two people already today, and then like a tool I say, “I hope it clears up before afternoon.”

Like it’s a zit on my head or something.

Just my luck, now I’ll get one.

Hey, my sister is off crutches, woo! She might even get to play next Thursday.

And also: last night as I walked in the door, Ginny was watching I Love The 80s Strikes Back, which I have not yet had an opportunity to see, and she goes “hey look, it’s DOUBLE DARE!”

And we seriously screamed like we were at a New Kids on the Block concert, circa 1990.

Oh, wait – that actually happened. In 1990.

And Sammi is all like “Oh yeah, and remember Family Double Dare and What Would You Do?”

Ginny and I were frantic. “NO, dude, it’s all about DOUBLE DARE. The original. Physical challenge! And the obstacle course and the flags and and and OH MY GOD!!! You’re too young to remember Double Dare!”

We are spazzazoids.

If some network was rerunning old episodes of Double Dare we’d watch that shit every day.

And Fun House. I really liked Fun House for some reason.

You know, Discovery Kids on NBC has a really convoluted sort of Survivor-like show for kids on Saturday mornings, and it’s not like I watch it every weekend or anything, but it’s not all that bad.

Original Survivor, though? Holy Jebus, this is my boyfriend:

Sam and I are fighting over him, but I have dibs, as I am older. He is too old for her.

Hi, I’m Lorie, and I’m shallow.

    I had a fat day yesterday. I'm hoping it doesn't last through the weekend (pause to lick cinnamon roll frosting from fingertips).

    Ha, I was at Katrina's last night when the Double Dare segment aired, and Katrina, Kim, Holly and I all screamed “AHHHHH! DOUBLE DARE!” at the same time, heh. I Love the 80's Strikes Back has taken over my life, for serious.

    Now that's more like it – he's a cute guy.

    */believes girls should only go out with guys he deems attractive.

    Now, search for Susan Tedeschi online and buy her “Better Days” album from amazon or wherever. – no regrets, none, promise.

    The best part of Double Dare? The host, Marc Summers, was profiled after the show went off the air, on some show like 20/20 or Dateline, because he has OCD! He freaks out when things are a mess! He must have felt like shooting himself in the head every day when he'd slide headfirst down the slide into the giant ice cream sundae. Then he went home and straightened the fringe on his rugs.
