New Followers and More TV Viewing From my Youth

Welcome to new follower Yard Sale Queen Chris (gee, now we've got the Pyrex Queen and Yard Sale Queen together - I'm but a mere pawn piece). Welcome also to Alyssa Bee, R. Lucas, The Vintage Cabin, and Sue. I promise that thrift will come soon. I've been flushed down a big 'ol work toilet this week. If any parents of my students are reading, rest assured. I mean that in the best way possible. We've got Curriculum Night tomorrow and it's hard not to get swept up in other people's knickers-in-a-knot-ness. I'm happy though.

Here's more pointless TV from my childhood. Does anyone else remember this? I knew Kristy could take down Little House on the Prairie girl just like that.

or this? John Davidson's hair is what's incredible. You know Fran Tarkenton was putting needles into his well-coiffed John Davidson voodoo doll in the green room.
or this? I know Valerie remembers this one, because it was the only hit game show from Quebec - at least in the rest of Canada. It was shot in Montreal and the contestants would have to move on this big game board. The prizes were cheap. If you were lucky, you'd win a disco date for two. P.S. I don't expect you to watch all 10+ minutes, unless you're feeling especially bored. I like to think there's some new mother out there. Baby wakes up for a 2 a.m. feeding and the mom decides to watch pointless videos on the Yard Sale Snoop blog. That thought gives me purpose.


  1. Too funny! When I'm up in the middle of the night I do look for Blogs to read!! LOL!!!

  2. Thanks for the warm welcome!! Much appreciated!

  3. yknow? i don't know what it is but the stores have been a little lame lately. very slim pickings. and i'm not just saying that to make you feel better. i think you'd be *lucky* to find ugly vases and kitchen drawer junk.

    and i'm just catching up on your posts... love bjork!

  4. I was so in love with Kristi's brother Jimmy McNichol. Teen angst! I am going to Google him and see how fat and bald he probably is now......;o(

  5. Well - I Googled him.,r:5,s:0&tx=52&ty=62

    Apparently he turned into a Meth head. Sigh.

  6. oh! and i forgot to mention: you're hilarious! ... it "gives me purpose" hahahah

I'm a slightly off-beat Toronto-area teacher who enjoys writing and photography. I come from a family of collectors and now I'm dragging my own family around to yard sales. It's just a bit of fun. Enjoy the scenes.
