We're partying like it is 1999, because that's the number of comments we hit today! Woot! Thank you so much. (That number includes me, of course. I can't resist elbowing into a good comments conversation.)
And thank you for making your comments so entertaining. There are some that really make me laugh, including this one left by Bess under the "Is Wilfair a Musical?" post:
Davey Jones was my first, human celebrity crush (the very first being Floyd, the guitarist Muppet).
I immediately snatched that comment and took it out for ice cream over at the famous Farmers Market. Sutton says hi, everyone, except she sort of waved her cleaver when she said it. Double meaning?
Bess's charming admission got me wondering about the first crushes of my other ladies and if they are indeed as Muppety. So if you'd like to share, and push the comments right over the 2,000 mark, let's go for it!
First, here's Floyd. Good pick, Bess! The rad glasses and exuberant 'stache are un-bel-iev-able on this dude.
Here's mine, and I really gave it some thought. I've always loved HR Pufnstuf, and his human friend Jimmy, and Jimmy's talking flute Freddy. This show was a bit before my time but holy bright colors! Psychedelia! Music!
But I could never decide, as a young lass, if Pufnstuf had my heart, or the boy, or the flute.
So upon reflection I've decided I had my first crush on their friendship rather than on any one of them. I've always liked multiple-people friendships. Though this is more of person-musical instrument-dragon friendship, if you want to be technical.
Can a first crush be on a friendship? Rather than an actual being? I'm saying yes. I think I might have had the occasional crush on, like, rocks I found, and pretty leaves that meant a lot to me. Clouds, even.
And bringing it back to Bess, who mentioned also liking Davy Jones of The Monkees: Jack Wild, who played Jimmy on HR Pufnstuf, and Mr. Jones both played the Artful Dodger in "Oliver." Jack Wild played the role in the film and Davy Jones on Broadway. Musicals, yay!
Who was your first crush?
