1993 was so cool…

So, I was just looking at the pictures of us crazy girls on this website, and I realized that there is one picture of Aimee and me where we have some seriously big hair.  To those of you who don’t know, the picture was taken the night of my eighth grade graduation and Aimee came over to my house beforehand to fix my hair.  This explains why we have the same hairdo.  Hey, we share a brain, why shouldn’t we share hairstyles?  Anyway, I don’t know why it suddenly struck me this time–I’ve looked at the pictures a million times, but it struck me as incredibly funny.  Cue my phone ringing, and guess who it is…that’s right, it’s Aimee.  She’s calling to tell me that the New Kids on the Block had been on the radio and she was rockin’ out to The Right Stuff.  Now, I know that “NKOTB” had stopped being cool by 1993, at least to us, but I thought it was appropriate that she should call me with this information as I’m reflecting on our big hair. 

So, I have been wanting to post on Grey’s all week, and have been so swamped at work. First of all, McSteamy who?

I’ve been reading peoples’ comments about the show this week; let me tell you, some people are so weird.  I cannot think of a better way to describe some of the comments I’ve read without being hateful, and I try not to be that way, so I’m going with “weird.”

Yes, it’s going to suck for poor, sweet, little George–NOT pervy, stalker, creepy George.  But, it’s also a good thing, even though it’s going to sting, because it will kill the fantasy so to speak.  Then, George can eventually move on instead of staying hung up on Meredith forever because everyone knows that she and McDreamy will have to get back together somewhere way down the line.  We know that can’t happen easily and it can’t happen quickly, or the show will be boring.  Can you say, “Who’s the Boss?” “The Nanny” and every other show that’s ever been on television where you thought you’d die before they hooked up the two people who belonged together?  Which reminds me that I’m sort of stoked that West Wing is going off because maybe now, finally, Josh and Donna can hook up!  Wow, that would make me so happy in the same way that Emilie was so happy when Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood got married.  But, I digress…also, you have to think about all that Meredith went through that day to lead her to make the decision to do something she’s going to regret later.  I’m not condoning her actions, but you have to think along the lines of TV world.  I totally understood why it was happening, but that didn’t mean I wanted it to.  I think my words to the television were, “Oh!  Don’t do it!  Don’t do it!  Don’t do it!” 

So, I have to back the folks at Grey’s for the way things played out.  It’s like one of those things when you have a friend or family member who is going to marry a complete jerk, but you can’t really say anything because you know they are going to do it regardless of what you say and if you say anything, they’ll get mad at you and then they still marry the jerk who now knows you think he’s a jerk and who doesn’t mind keeping your friend away from you.  As their friend or relative, you just have to prepare yourself to be there for them and support them whether things either work out or they don’t.  So, I will be pissed at Meredith with the rest of you, will understand why she did what she did with the rest of you, will feel sorry for George with the rest of you (unless you are one of the people who thinks he was sneaking into her bedroom all creepy style and taking advantage of a situation even though he was not privy to the information), and will watch and wait to see what happens next with the rest of you!  It’s a great ride, isn’t it?

    As I recall you WANTED me to fix your hair like mine. I came over special. I still think at least one of us was hot, so there. Also, that trip to fix your hair was the beginning of the end for Grace and I. Anyway, what’s wrong with big hair? Mine looked like crap straight.

    As for Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, I was pretty happy about it too. It was about time. They spent years putting off what everyone could see was meant to be.

    As for Grey’s Anatomy, all I can say about these “fans” is what part of GREY’S Anatomy don’t they get? The show is about Meredith and what goes on in her world as she sees it, that includes the thoughts in her head. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I would hate to be judged for the pity party and yes hatred that goes on inside my head. If you want candy coated, whine free, unrealistic interpretations of women and what we think, change the channel to something with more testosterone. The show is about so much more than whining or girls or heartbreak, but most importantly, it is about MEREDITH.

    P.S. Sorry it took me so long to comment I got back late Sunday night, and I simply forgot yesterday.

    Hey, we were totally hot in ’93, thank you very much! It’s just funny now, that’s all I’m saying; you know, like hills or shrimp normandine… Why was that trip to fix my hair the beginning of the end for Grace and you? WTF?

    Yeah, I was pretty stoked about Garth and Trisha too.

    I need to talk about Grey’s more, but I don’t have the time or the energy to do it right now. Did you and Taine watch Sunday’s episode?
