Why do these things Fascinate me?

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Maybe I should not say fascinate because I am not into necrophilia or anything, though I have played a dead body before but let's not talk about that now. Estelle Getty died today. She was 84 years old. I thought she was older than that, she looked that old on the Golden Girls. Turns out she was 60 then and they just made her look older plus that show was so good at getting you into those girls' lives that when they told me she was 80 I believed them. In reality she was one year younger than Bea Arthur who played her daughter on the show.

I really liked The Golden Girls, I do not know why since I was between 5 and 12 years old when it was on but I remember watching it quite a lot. Maybe because reruns of the show came on after school and when I was tired of Saved By The Bell or something like that I could flip through the stations and find The Golden Girls. Also, it was funny and a little grown up for me but not way over my head. Another thing I know I liked about the show is the way it made you feel at home. Sure they were a bunch of crazy old ladies doing their crazy old lady thing but when it came down to it they lived together in a warm home and they were always there for each other. They were best friends and that is what I remember most. Thinking how nice it would be to have friends like that when I get older.
