Child Star


Growing up, I wished I could be a child star. I watched Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen's detective videos, and The Babysitter's Club, and I was like really? I can do that! It's so easy! I can solve mysteries by dinner time, too! I also wanted to be a secretary, an artist, a singer, a professional person who worked in an office, a Barbie, a caterpillar, a tour guide, and... well, you get the point. I still change my mind at this constant pace. Because I have ADD.

Anyway. In Vegas, we had a wild and crazy time... watching Nickelodeon. And I was surprised at how much I actually knew about Spongebob Squarepants. A whole lot. Like, so many small details no 22-year-old woman should know. I didn't have younger siblings, I didn't have a child, I just watched it. And would enjoy it. And draw his character all over my notebooks. I'm not kidding. I was like Tye in Clueless with Marvin the Martian. Except I smoked less pot.

Anywho, we watched this show iCarly. It is about this girl, Carly, who has an internet TV show with her best friend Sam. It's like a variety/comedy show where they do dumb things. It's really dumb actually, and the acting is kind of terrible. And one of the girls reminds me of a co-worker of mine in the worst ways possible. But, I actually sat down to relax in front of the TV tonight (which, really never happens... it lasts about 3 minutes before I'm up doing something else. Like typing this blog. Or doing laundry. Or unpacking. Etc.) and I found the show and got a little excited for it.

I immediately scolded myself and switched the channel. But nothing good was on! I mean, not on the two channels above Nick, so I just went right back.

And watched two episodes.

And actually laughed and got invested in characters and got so mad when Sam and Freddy kissed because Freddy totally likes Carly and should have his first kiss with her and not that ungrateful bitch, Sam.

And, yeah, now I'm going to go watch a more grown-up show to rid myself of the stain of iCarly. So, yes, Home Improvement The Lizzie McGuire Movie it is.

My problem with iCarly is that the whole live with your sibling thing is a TOTAL What I like about you rip off. Except with 100% less Kelly Taylor and Amanda Bines.

Anyhoo, I remediable vividly how much you wanted to be a secretary. And even today your passion for organizing, scheduling and taking notes is frightening.
