Thank Goodness It's Friday!!!

Remember back when you would go home on Friday nights, order a pizza and settle down on the couch for a nice long night of ABC's TGIF - teeny-bopper shows like "Boy Meets World" would fill our televisions sets in less than HD quality and we would laugh and cry along with Cory and Sean.
Then on Saturday mornings we would wake up early (in spite of staying up late to watch TGIF) so ABC could once again grace our televisions, this time with One Saturday Morning where you would watch cartoons like "Pepper Ann", "Doug", "Recess" - Disney classics!! What a perfect moment to sit in front of the tube in your PJ's with dad's Micky Mouse shaped pancakes covered in Jif Peanut Butter and Log Cabin syrup.
Those were the days!!
Now a days you turn the TV on on a Friday night and you can watch some evangelical preachers (on the Christian channel), or some re-runs of shows like that one with George Lopez.
Saturday mornings are even worse! You can catch some weekend reporters (the ones that are still sort of learning) talk about stuff that happened the week before and about important things like "how to stop bloating with Dr. Melvin the leading bloatation doctor in the country", or an infomercial on the newest exercise phenomenon hosted by a washed up actor.
Now, I'm not trying to put a negative spin on ABC and its lack of great weekend programming, all I'm saying is that I miss the good stuff!
So I am petitioning the TV networks to bring back weekend television for the sack of all of the people out there who want to spend a nice date night with pizza watching teeny-bopper shows!
Who's With Me??

Oh my heavens I can't believe I found you on here. I found you on some body's blog. Oh so much fun. How the heck are ya? I haven't heard from you since Miss AZ. I did get your wedding announcement I was even going to go because I was going to be in Snowflake but I had a ribbon cutting come up so I had to stay in Safford that weekend. Hope everything is going well.

So so true!! That totally brought me back. Do they even have cartoons on TV anymore? Maybe we'll discover that again once we all have kids. I used to love Saturday mornings as a kid. And didn't it seem that days were much longer back then? A whole day worth of playing. Now after I finish doing stuff around the house it's already 4 o'clock and I wonder where the day went.
