I know, it's old and really sappy, cheesy stuff, but I love it. Like comfort food. It makes me laugh and cry and teaches me life lessons along the way. Like when an animal dies and Pa comforts the girls. Or when Laura inevitably has a crush on a boy and Nellie ruins it for her by recording her voice talking all about it and plays it in front of Miss Beadle's whole class!
I've recently read Melissa Gilbert's book, Alison Arngrim's HILARIOUS and yummy book, Confessions of a Prairie Bitch (read it, seriously).
I feel like his sound advice and pullyourselfupbyyourbootstraps is a lesson that we all need to be taught, especially now in this day and age where everyone things they DESERVE success in life. How much better is this show to watch than something like Hannah Montana or some disney garbage? I mean LHOTP has god stuff in it which we all know I can't stomach, but I can overlook that.
Another thing, I've always had a mad crush on Doc Baker.
I know most girls crushed on Almanzo, but not me. Doc Baker was steady like a stream and always able to fix anything with a thermometer and a compress.
I am following a group of people on Twitter that have taken on the personas of the LHOTP cast. And I pretend that they are really the characters. Tweeting.
Pretending is fun!
|Yes, totally starstruck.|
