This week, I picked the topic: If you could travel back in time to meet a past celebrity crush, what time period would you travel to and who would you meet? Describe how you would meet them and share something you would say to them.
(I was inspired by "I Love the 80's" by Megan Crane.)
If you know me pretty well, I'm guessing you would say I'd pick one of the following three celebrity crushes: Michael J. Fox, Patrick Swayze or Joey McIntyre. Well, you'd be wrong. I did meet Joey in 2004 but it was disappointing that he didn't care to acknowledge that he's a New Kid on the Block. (I would also get arrested if I went back as my 34 year-old self to hit on a 16 year-old Joey in 1989.) As for the other two, I don't know what I'd say to them after seeing what has happened in their lives.
If you know me really well, then you know that my all-time favorite TV show is "Full House." And it should be a given that I have the hots for John Stamos as Jesse. Not for John Stamos now, even though he was quite sexy on "Glee." Back in the 80's and 90's, I would melt whenever I saw him on "Full House." I even wrote a song parody called "Uncle Jesse's Girl." I wish I had saved the lyrics to it. It was pretty clever. I did it as an homage to that David Duchovny song (he's another crush of mine, by the way). It broke my heart whenever there was a sad episode and he'd be crying. I wanted to go all the way to San Francisco just to hug him.
Anyway, I decided that I would go back to 1988 and get a part on "Full House" as my adult self and Jesse would fall madly in love with my character, negating the need for him to ever get with Rebecca "Becky" Donaldson. (Maybe Becky could hook up with Danny instead!) That way, I'd get a lot of on-screen kissing time with him and I'd be a regular for the rest of the series. It would be a cool way to not only be with my crush, but also be on my favorite TV series. I'd thank Bob Saget in advance for being the voice on one of my current favorite shows and reassure him that his career does not end at "Full House" (although he could do without "America's Funniest Home Videos.") I'd help Candace and Jodie with their teen angst. I'd tell Dave not to sleep with Alanis Morissette so he wouldn't be the butt of ugly rumors that "You Oughta Know" was about him. I would even give the Olsen twins tips on not letting Hollywood get to their head. Finally, and most importantly, I'd tell John not to marry the other Rebecca in his life (Rebecca Romijn, that is). That ended badly and he could probably still be married to someone better suited for him. (Not me, since I have found my one and only, but someone who "gets" him. I just want to be his on screen lover.)
That's my time travel fantasy and I'm sticking to it. :)
