I've got sitcom issues...

HerNameIsBuffy

3,057 views

Just to be clear I'm not snarking on the looks of  a child...I'm snarking on the stylists or whomever let this one go on tv with her hair like this...

I had straight, hard to style hair and as a squirmy kid had my share of haircuts with uneven bangs and god knows what kind of layers happening down the sides...but no one put me on TV like that!  No one on the set for the entire time she was on the series had a brush?

For you youngsters that's Dawn Lynn, Dodie on My Three Sons (and Leif Garrett's real life sister.)

I hate the show Roseanne but I've seen every episode a zillion times since it's required by law or something, what the fuck is a loose meat sandwich?

Can't be a sloppy joe since it was something Jackie brought back from some truck stop and they acted like it was the second coming of crap on a bun.  Sloppy joes are ubiquitous everywhere in the US.  Besides, when they spooned it out there was no red sauce.

Seriously, what was in that stuff?  

Welcome Back Kotter...there is some merit to this show.  I like the running gag with the uncle jokes...and as a kid I was mad my mom wouldn't let me paint CLOSET on my closet doors.  But in what universe does Gabe allow high school kids, with a median age of about 30, to climb in his windows.  That's taking your work home with you before smart phones.  If I'm Julie I'm slamming that window down on the first sweathog part that tries to cross the threshold.  

Three's Company - what were they using on Suzanne Sommer's hair for that shine?  It is really hard to get heavily bleached hair that glossy and I need to know how they did it.

Eight is Enough - not technically a sitcom but I'm already typing.  It's like they went out of their way to cast kids who couldn't look less like siblings.  

I'll give you maybe Joannie and Tommy and maybe David and Elizabeth - the rest of them?  Nope

And I know some people don't look like family, but in what universe does the gorgeous Valerie Bertinelli share a gene pool with those two?  Ann was frank about red not being her natural color and I can kind of see her being Mackenzie Phillips mom...but unless Valerie had all recessive genes I don't know what happened.

One Day at a Time still wins for catchiest theme song and I don't even care that whomp on the beat makes no sense.  And she totally should have married RIchard Mazur's character when she had a chance...I liked him but she held out for Dr. Johnny Fever?  Who wants that coming at ya in the middle of the night.

Also I think they would have made the worst neighbors ever...Ann and Julie were very loud and I would have had major issues.  Also, way to parent letting some handyman you didn't even know at first let himself in and out of your place where you live with your underage girls.  It's called a deadbolt and letter on legal stationary to the landlord.

Bewitched...Darren one was a PITA the ass at times but he adored Sam.  Darren two was a giant ass and Endora should have staged some kind of intervention.

Loose Meat Sandwich

I liked Roseanne. Both when it was current and now as a ... I don't know. It was groundbreaking. It was nice to see people on tv that weren't wealthy, thin, pretty. It had sarcasm. My parents HATED it.

Thanks - I should have googled.  So it's just a hamburger but messier.  

I would not be happy in Landford.

No one is really happy in Lanford. It's a poor, industrial town in the north. I'm not saying poor people or blue collar workers can't be happy. But the people of Lanford seem to be constantly dealing with setback after setback.

Can we just add to Roseanne that while it did have Clooney on it for a while, it was WTHECK Clooney not ER when did he get hot Clooney.

One Day at a Time sort of came on the air in the aftermath of my parent's divorce.   However My mom was no M.S. Ramano.

Are you being paid by some sort of "Derail Vi from getting her wedding things done" gremlin, @HerNameIsBuffy?   Because you *should* be, you're so proficient!

No this was the work of demons in my head intent on sabotaging me.  I struggled so much today just to try to focus I wondered if there was a gas leak - not kidding.  I just couldn't concentrate and now that I'm home the self loathing begins lol.

Nor was mine.  Mine wasn't a fan because she thought it made divorcees look angry and bitter - stereotype perpetuation.

Perhaps our demons are in the same union?  We had lots of fun, no self loathing allowed.  It was just a Casual Friday for the mind!

Unfortunately @violynn my brain made it casual week and took most of it off.

debsting going to HR and having her kill a couple of vacation days so I feel less guilty for being a slackass.  I would tell her it was because I was a slackass, I'd say not feeling well which kinda true if by that you mean I was chasing invisible butterflies instead of thinking.

but I've had more fun goofing off today than in a very long time, so that's something :) 

goal for the weekend - get back to being myself by Monday!

I'm sorry you're feeling as if you've been slacking, @HerNameIsBuffy. Everything I've seen as your professional work ethic would suggest you are an absolutely hardworking individual.  Like everyone, maybe you just need a little time off to blow off steam.  Heck, you work hard at your 'offtime' job here too, and that's been no picnic lately!  I hope you get the downtime you need so you'll feel better about it soon.

I actually wondered today since my bosses were out of the office if I could go to HR and Fire myself?  But would probably be unethical to give myself a severance lol.  And a felony and I would not last in prison.

work has just been a minefield lately and bled over into off hours so much I, getting cranky.  But passive aggressive goofing off won't work forever, although it's been working great so far lol. So I need to fish or cut bait as they say.

but I have the weekend and a house to clean so YAY for the next 48 hours!

Too hard on yourself!  But yes, YAY for the next 48 hours, and cleaning always helps me work off stress, gives me time to think and lets me feel I've done something useful and productive when I'm feeling less than 100% effective.  I hope it helps!

Yes, but those are messy for a reason and you plan accordingly.  This is just mess when the actual burger would be the same so it's madness!!

There is only one Darin...Dick York.  And the imposter demon who followed him.

      I find anyone who only thinks their political and religious beliefs are right and thinks anyone who doesn't agree with them are brainwashed insufferable. I will likely never vote for the UK Conservative party because I don't share their values but I have had respect to some extent respect for the party leaders and Prime Ministers who do a difficult job regardless of what I think of them. Boris may be the exception to this because he is so terrible and makes me miss Theresa May and Gordon Brown and those two were bad at being PM.

      Ah you're right Ezra turned 14 in May. I thought his birthday was in the late fall / winter like the other kids. It looks like Simon and Della are almost 3 years. Then she really hits her stride: Della and Evy and Nola are a couple months shy of 2 years, Evy and Nola and Theo are a few months over 2 years, Theo and Honor are two years and a month, and Honor and Shiloh are also 2 years and a month. The new babies will be about a 1 and a half years younger than Shiloh.

      Is Simon 13, or soon to be such?
