Kray

Oh, man. Chris Kelly died? From Kris Kross?? Seriously, I am a broken-hearted 10 year old right now; one who is back in time hopping and crossing my legs, while yelling at our TV "Krisss Krossss!" Super sad about this. What an impact these guys were able to make.

This got me thinking about TGIF. Remember on Friday nights? No idea? Here's a quick recap from MrRetroCommercials via youtube.com. Family Matters, Step By Step, Boy Meets World, Full House, Dinosaurs, and my personal favorites, Sabrina the Teenage Witch and Hangin with Mr. Cooper, all contributed in some way to who I am today. I share this proudly. We did pizza in our house. Amen! It sure was TGIF, amiright? Pizza Hut pan, cheese of course. It's funny too because some coworkers and I were just talking about this. A bunch of us shared the same sentiments. We appreciated this night so much.

It has me thinking now about the original ideas that went into TV. The world it was back then, was one of light-hearted, American Dreamery. I Love Lucy, Bewitched, Jeannie Girl (aka I Dream of Jeannie), The Brady Bunch, Gilligan's Island...so on and on. TGIF brought this same appeal and if it were on today, I would be on it like bangles on my arm. All. Over. It.

Chris Kelly, thank you. Rest in peace indeed.


*Saw this table out and about today. My cousin Nick had one when we were kids. We loved this desk! I had to send him the pic. I may look into an adult replication. The structuring is dynamite.



Jamming,
