Whatever on earth brought me to this, you ask? (I knew you would.) I saw Bowser on a TimeLife infomercial, which reminded me of their variety show and watching it with Mom every week. It was a MASSIVE weekly staple in my house. In looking it up, I remembered how heartbreaking Johnny's voice was and how this was about the only song I played repeatedly around the time I was ten and had a record player and the Grease soundtrack.

I remember that Mom had an 8-track with several songs from that era on it, and that "Runaway" was ZOMG MY FAVORITE. That and the Red Riding Hood song. I begged Mom to play the entire thing all the time. I wore the crap out of that one and my Bay City Rollers' Greatest Hits.

I was going to marry the lead singer of The Bay City Rollers, you see, but only as a back up if my first choice of John Schneider fell through. If all childhood memories came true, I would be an only child (eek), my parents would have fallen back in love and remarried (egads, the horror!), I'd be married to Bo Duke and be a bus driver.

If your childhood fancies came true, where would YOU be this day?

We share some similarities here...Sha-na-na was BIG in my house. My sister was a Johnny-girl, but I was strangely more into "Dirty Dan" myself. To this day I'm not sure why. Probably because Bowser and Johnny got all the attention and I felt he needed some.

We also had a few 8-tracks. The one I remember growing up with is Charley Pride, though.

And you and I would have had to fight over John Schneider, though I probably would have let you have him after a while. However, I would give you a flying elbow drop for him now. He has aged sooooo well.

Somewhere with a rocket pack and a light saber and dragons.

Ah yes - Sha Na Na! It was also a staple in the the household of my childhood, as was the Bay City Rollers Saturday morning variety show (remember that?)

If MY fancies had come true, I would have developed a penis, grown up to be a man and would be a race horse rider. Never mind that I would probably be 6'4, like my father, and much to large to be a jocky - THAT was what I wanted to do. Never thought much about the marriage issue back then. Well, kinda had a thing for Leif Garret, but you know where that would have gotten me. Having developed my desired penis, Leif, no doubt would have wanted nothing to do with me. And if he did, we'd have both become crack heads.

He he, I remember Sha Na Na. Well, a little bit, anyways. ^_^

If my childhood wishes had come true, I'd have been to Saturn and back by now. Yes, that's what I wanted, to be the first astronaut to go to Saturn.

Weird from Sha Na Na I think I liked Denny the best. Nuff said.
