Pop Culture - Old School Blogging

I am loving the Old School Blogging memes.  
Fun stuff for this Old School Mama!
Here's this month's edition...

1.  What was one of your favorite shows as a kid?  Why?

I would have to say Growing Pains, because Kirk Cameron, that's why.  I loooooved him.

2. Which actress(es) do you see on the red carpet and kinda wish you could be for a day (or three)?

I don't watch awards shows.  I compare them to watching paint dry; they just don't interest me at all.  But I have a total girl crush on Sofia Vergara, and if I couldn't be her, I would have to choose Catherine Zeta-Jones.  Brunettes rock!!

drop dead gorgeous.

3.  Which actor do you wish you could, um... hang out with? ;)

Bradley Cooper.  It's rare that I like the same celebrity that everyone else likes (I am not at all impressed with George Clooney, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, nor 90% of the other men y'all ladies swoon over) but I love me some Coop.  Oh and I just saw that Hangover 3 will be out soon!  I cannot wait!

4. What is one (or two or some) of your favorite movies that you have seen in the last few years?

Well, the Hangover movies, obviously.  I love love love Straw Dogs.  I also loved the Paranormal Activity movies.  (can you tell I don't see movies a lot?)  

The last movie I saw was on my first date with Byron.  I just asked him and neither of us can remember what movie it was!  hahaha

5. Who is one celebrity out there now that you could totally do without? That you wish would just disappear?

Other than the obvious, Paris Hilton and Lindsay Lohan?  I'd have to say Ryan Lochte.  Dumb as a box of rocks, he is pretty much an embarrassment to humanity, and more importantly, to the University of Florida. (he is a former Gator.  Sad, but true.)  And I just could not care less what he would 'do'.  I think his best bet is to keep quiet and swim.

6. Have you ever met a celebrity? If so, who? What did you say/do when you met them?

I have.  I met Tim Tebow when he was still in training for the Florida Gators (where he played college football).  My then-husband John is a huge Gator fan and recognized him, even though he'd never played a game with the Gators.  He was with three other Gator players.  I went up and started talking to them (the ex was too chicken).  I chatted with Tebow for a while and then got his autograph, and he took pictures with my ex and two of my kids.  We had no idea how famous he would eventually become.  One of these days I need to scan those pictures.  
I have nothing but respect for Tim Tebow; he is an amazing person.  Not to mention SMOKING HOT.  

Also, once the season started I went to a game and when he was running into the tunnel, he high-fived me.  I haven't washed that hand YET.

I also met Joakim Noah, Al Horford, and some other former UF Basketball player whose name I don't recall. Maybe Taurean Green?  They  are all now pro players.  Horford's mother lived in the same apartment complex I used to live in, and I saw them one day while walking my dog.  Noah was petting my dog and I asked him if I could run home and get something for them to autograph.  I grabbed one of the ex's hats and ran back. They invited me in and they all signed it for me.  I knew right away it was Noah because not only is he literally almost 7 foot tall, he looks like this: 

He's hard to miss.

7.  Which shows do you look forward to watching every week?

I rarely get to watch shows when they come on because I work nights.  But I love Duck Dynasty and I am addicted to most TLC shows.  I especially love My Crazy Obsession!  And I watch Welcome to Myrtle Manor, too.  I have never made a secret of my love for craptastic reality TV!  I can't wait for Honey Boo Boo to return.

Her mom reminds me of someone I know.  
I can't quite put a finger on who though....

Smexy Mama.

I have quickly become a diehard Duck Dynasty fan! Love those guys and everything they stand for! Jase, actually, spoke at our church about a month ago and I'm still kicking myself that I didn't attend! I, too, am a big fan of Tim Tebow...how neat that you got to meet him!

Okay - I love "Dumb as a box of rocks" that is so funny. I think I'll use it if you don't mind. LOL!

So cool that Joakim Noah was so nice to you. I have know idea of who he is but, I love it when people are kind. and Tim Tebow is a cutie pie. :) the one show I look forward to watching is Master Piece Theater - mostly I like anything they put on.

I hope you have a great day!

Great picture. I know who she reminds you of. That's just funny :)

Cute post. You realize that you and I don't like ANY of the same tv shows? LOL

Sarah said...

Can I just have Sofia Vergara's boobs? And I'm completely with you about Ryan Lochte. He is worthless.

Oh no, Honey Boo Boo? The only person I find more crass is her mama. I fully agree about Brad Pitt and George Clooney. Pitt is freaky, and Clooney is just "meh." But I can see why women find Depp sexy.

I loved Growing Pains growing up! Though I'm not sure I'd get along with Kirk. I curse a lot and he's pretty religious so I'm not sure if he'd like that very much...

Jenny @ flutterbyechronicles said...

I think I would have answered about the same for all the questions. Except I do love me some Johnny Depp, but old school Johnny Depp not these crazy characters he has been playing lately.

And Ryan Lochte...Ughh don't get me started. I think I lost several brain cells watching 5 minutes of his new reality show on E.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I loved growing pains too and I went to a tapping here in LA. I even have a t-shirt they gave me....just like the one he is wearing! Sofia is a blast. Bradley is sooooo hot. I also love the Hangover movies and can't wait to see the newest one this month. Well I don't watch the shows you watch but I enjoyed reading your answers.

I have had a crush on George Clooney since he was on the Facts of Life, so while it seems like I'm jumping on the bandwagon, I was really just ahead of the game! :-)

Elaine Alguire said...

You know, I live in Louisiana and have yet to see one episode of Duck Dynasty! ;)

And Yeah, Bradley Cooper = HOT!!

Thanks for linking up!!

We just watched Bradley Cooper in Silver Linings Playbook. Amazing. And I'm sure the hubby didn't mind Jennifer Lawrence's ridiculously bouncy boobs either. ;)

I was smitten with Kirk C. Cameron too. Sadly I don't have any idea who Bradley Cooper is but he sure is easy on the eyes!
