Just call me Half Pint Please

I'm pretty sure I said this every day for a good portion of my childhood.
Then in college I got Scarlet Fever 
Because I have awesome luck
And while I was practically dying in the hospital the nurses joked that they hadn't heard of actual cases of scarlet fever only on tv
Then they started calling me half pint...
Oh the way the world works.
If you aren't getting any of these references you should stop here 
We also can't be friends
Okay I guess we can but a good potion of our friendship will consist of me updating you on the ways of 
Little House on the Prarire.

The. Best. Show. Ever.
I've seen every episode twice and I loved it til the very end... even through Alberts morphine addiction.
Why am I not embarrassed to admit my undying obsession with this show?
Probably because little 6-10 year old super super nerdy abnormal child had way more shows to be embarrassed about. 
So today I bring you
5 shows I'm extremely embarrassed to admit I've seen every episode.
Let me preface this by saying i totally believe in reincarnation because there is no other explination as to why a little girls tv line up would look like this...
1. Quantum leap 
I would still watch this show if it was on. Obviously from my LHotP obsession I wanted to live in another time and this show he time traveled so it was a total win win. 
2. Highlander
This one totally makes sense for an 8 year old...oh wait..nope cutting peoples heads off with swords to steal their power isn't quite 8 year girl material 
3. Beauty and the Beast
Not the normal kid movie that I should have enjoyed the creepy fucking tv show about the underground people who live in sewers and a deformed guy in love with a girl from above ground.
4. Scarlett the Gone with the Wind TV mini series

This movie was my favorite and I watched it over and over on my VHS tapes holla! So when they came out with the continuation on a mini series I have my first tv heart attack and set every alarm clock in my house to press record at the perfect time. WHERE WERE YOU DVR?!
5. Stairway to Heaven 
I had a thing for Michael Landon and my first AIM screen name was LandonMic87 and now I'm officially embarrassed...

Now before you get all hoity toidty and tell me how these shows were on before my time... you've heard of re-runs right.
Get over it.
It was new to me ya heard.

Yeah I know I was awesome. I'm even going to include these gems so you can get a full visual of my childhood.

Thats Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grade for ya.
Apparently I had a fear of forgetting which one was me....

Have a good week everybody, and cross your fingers I lost some weight somewhere this week!!


  1. I've never seen any of those, but I loved loved loved and now own all the Little House books.

  2. Ahhhh I freaking LOVE Little House on the Prairie. Seriously one of the best shows ever.
