LUUUUCCYYYY... You got some 'splainin to do

When I was younger I was OBSESSED with I Love Lucy to the point that it was annoying. I would watch the show EVERY night on Nick at Nite and would run around quoting funny things that Lucy had said. I was an odd child, to put it lightly. I was a poorly-socialized only child who craved attention and always wanted to make people laugh. At nearly 23, you can still say the same thing about me. Only, I have much better social skills and am a LOT less annoying now (although I do have my moments).

I was killing time online before and found out that there is a musuem dedicated to Lucy and Desi. It is in Jamestown NY, which is Lucille Ball's hometown. The website also includes a list of Lucy-related places to visit. Only problem is, its a good seven hours away so this trip will most likely require a weekend. I don't care though, my list of things-to-do has clearly been updated!

A small update on the prospects from eHarmony - Bachelor #1 actually tried to impress me by knowing where Vinny from the Jersey Shore's "crib" was (YES, HE ACTUALLY SAID CRIB!) so yeah, kind of a turn-off. Bachelor #2 (met through a co-worker) is on a cruise (LUCKY FUCK) and Bachelor #3 (guy from Boston) told me he was going to call me tonight but did not - so he might not be that into me. Eh, oh well.

BACK TO LUCY! I leave you with one of my ALL time favorite Lucy moments. This scene actually held the record at the time for the longest studio audience laugh.

I was (am) OBSESSED with Lucy. I watched all the Nick at Nite shows, hooray for insomnia in high school! I even have an I Love Lucy lunchbox somewhere...

I was obsessed with Lucy too! Must be all the cool girls were. I had insomnia in high school and would stay up into the wee hours watching it too! Must be why we're all a little wacko now. OMG! @LiLu I still have the lunchbox! It now holds my candles. Now I want to go find it...

i wish that nick at nite was still those old shows, instead of playing the nanny and weird original cartoons like they do now.

@LILU & @one blonde girl - insomnia in high school AND grammar school for me lol. I don't remember what night it was on but I remember Nick at Nite also showed the Lucy Desi Comedy Hour and those were always my favorite!

@jerseysjov - I KNOW! Roseanne isn't even on it anymore, its like they are catering to the children that watch Nickelodeon.
