A Valentine's departure














Yesterday I turned on the 5pm news just a few minutes early. Oprah was just ending and had Michael Flatley on. Or, maybe it was David Cassidy.

Is it just me or could they have been separated at birth?

For the record, David Cassidy was a bit before my time. However, I did have a huge crush on Shaun Cassidy. And, in case Cathy is keeping a tally, I think they are hairless fellas.


"I Think I Love You"

I'm sleeping
And right in the middle of a good dream
like all at once I wake up
From something that keeps knocking at my brain
Before I go insane
I hold my pillow to my head
And spring up in my bed
Screaming out the words I dread:
"I think I love you!" (I think I love you)

This morning, I woke up with this feeling
I didn't know how to deal with
And so I just decided to myself
I'd hide it to myself
And never talk about it
And didn't I go and shout it
When you walked into my room.
"I think I love you!" (I think I love you)

I think I love you
So what am I so afraid of?
I'm afraid that I'm not sure of
A love there is no cure for
I think I love you
Isn't that what life is made of?
Though it worries me to say
I've never felt this way

Believe me
You really don't have to worry
I only want to make you happy
And if you say,
hey, go away, I will
But I think better still
I ought to stay around and love you
Do you think I have a case?
Let me ask you to your face:
Do you think you love me?
I think I love you!

Swissy: LOL! I's disturbing but it so happens that I know they are hairless. Not my type. LOL!

I should put a disclaimer on my presence: "Send the kids away, Cathy's here"

Blasphemy! Michael Flatley of the fake brogue does not look like my heart throb of 1971!!!!!

Cathy:
A little hair is OK...my hubby's that way. But when it's like a carpet then they need a good waxing!

Angela:
Sorry. It's Lent and I had to be nice to Mr. Flatley...if you don't have anything nice to say you don't say anything at all, so I chose to be quiet on the topic! David Cassidy wins hands down, no contest.

I may have to go to itunes and get a few David Cassidy songs! Yes, he was hot in my preteen-teen years. Shaun was just a Hardy Boy, not a real man like his bro.
Happy Valentines Day, Swiss!

i liked shaun cassidy. david cassidy whom i believe is his step brother was before my time.

Hey! Don't dis Shaun. He was supersmart to solve all those mysteries! And, he did it without a hair out of place!

I do remember the Bay City Rollers. No one's heard from them in decades...either they've been too busy drinking Glenfiddich to care or the Loch Ness Monster might be involved. Maybe we should get Shaun on the case.

The Cassidy brothers' pop was freaky in The Eiger Sanction.

V:
Pops was too smarmy for me. Ick. He always gave me the creeps. I had never heard of the movie though, but I haven't seen too many movies.

OT, but what's cooking at your house? I've got two loaves of buttermilk bread rising at the moment. The dough was so soft and looked so good...maybe I'm finally getting the hang of this bread making stuff! I'm having Easter at my house this year. Couldn't handle fast food feasts any longer!

Yeah he was creepy in The Eiger Sanction too. It starred Clint Eastwood as a retired government assassin who was a university art professor (that element kinda reminded me of Raiders of the Lost Ark which came out 6 years later). There is a lot of mountain climbing in the film (much of it shot at the Swiss Alps) and Clint did his own climbing/stunt work.

That sounds good! I used to make a lot of buttermilk biscuits (which of course are much easier than bread). Yesterday I made chili out of smoked chicken. I also put the vegetables in the smoker for a while(sweet red and orange peppers and purple onions). The smoke gave it incredible flavor without any fat (other than olive oil in the pan). I'm going to make my lime cheesecake tomorrow.

Swiss, you wrote, "David Cassidy wins hands down, no contest."

All is forgiven!

I had a crush on Shaun, too. I had his white album!

I saw David on Oprah. He could barely breath.

Shaun Cassidy was DEAD sexy on Hardy Boys or whatever.
