I was SO in LOVE with Shaun Cassidy...

Isn't it amazing that a memory of one thing will bring up memories of something totally unrelated to the first memory? Earlier tonight we watched a rerun of "Welcome Back Kotter". I used to love that show, and I wondered what happened to those actors, so I looked them up on Internet Movie Database. That led me to think about songs from the 70s that I really enjoyed, so I began looking up videos on YouTube. I watched Leif Garrett, the DeFranco Family and others; but NONE were as good as Shaun Cassidy. At least, that is what I thought when I was about 8.

I remember watching the Hardy Boys, and even at such a young age I swooned over "Joe." ;-) So, what is a girl to do? I looked up Shaun Cassidy videos on YouTube. I found quite a few. ;-) Not only music videos, but someone was kind enough to post all of the episodes of the "Last Kiss of Summer". ALL 18 , 5 minute segments. And I watched them all.

ALL people.

Because I am obsessive like that.

It is now 1:00 am, and I am blogging about it. How sad is that?! I remember when I watched it the first time. I was so young, and I still remember the feeling of that knot I got in my stomach when I watched Joe and Jamie at there wedding rehearsal. I hid my face when he kissed her. (Jealousy is an ugly thing.)

So, for all of you Shaun Cassidy fans, here is a video. :-) AND, just a sidenote here, I have a question for any of you with a Tween in your household who forces you to watch "Zack and Cody" a zillion times a day; "Don't the twins look like they have Shaun's hair from back then? Seriously."

I really preferred the other Hardy Boy. What was his name? Parker Stevenson? Yes.

Hey, you make me smile, so I have given you an award. Stop by the blog to pick it up.
