This week our hostess is Jo. Here is her assignment.....
I want to know about your first ‘celebrity’ crush. You know, the one you fancied from that band, or that film, or who read the news, or who won Gold at the Olympics.
Did you have their pictures on your wall or in your locker?
Did you dress like them, style or colour your hair like them, follow them, meet them, marry them? (It could happen.)
Photos of THEM would be good, photos of YOU at the time you liked them would be even better.
Also, if you have time, I’d like to know whether they had any influence over your life, the person you became, or if they were just an embarrassing blip you would kind of rather forget about
I have sat and pondered on this all week. I don't if it's the head concussion or I'm just getting old or too much going on, but I really can't remember having a "crush" on a celebrity. Not really.
I had several different bands of different kind of music I liked, I really loved Scooby Doo, (still do), and I really loved B.J. and the Bear.
I guess you could say that the dude off of B.J. and the Bear was the one I really liked. I always wanted to drive a Big Truck and have a friend like bear. When I was 18, I took the written test to drive a truck and passed with flying colors. When they called me to go for my driving test, they seemed to all excited. The lady said, I have 2 more questions. "How much do you weigh and how tall are you?" I told her I weighed 85 lbs and was 5'2". She hung up on me! Two weeks later I got a letter in the mail telling me that I no longer qualified to take the driving test. I let it go, but still always wanted to drive a truck. When Dan and I got married we had said that when our kids got grown that we would get our DSL's and drive together and enjoy the sites. (Dan was going to be my Bear! LOL!)Then about 5-6 years ago I found out that I had narcolepsy. So, I would never be able to get my DSL's. I still love to drive! A lot more than Dan, but I guess I will have to settle for my van instead of a big truck.
