show me that smile again

one of the reasons i knew in my heart that pp, my random college roommate, and i were going to get along great was because on October 12 that first year, she turned to me and said, "do you know what today is?"

i have no idea how i remembered this -- probably because someone i knew in jr. high was obsessed with him -- but i replied, "why, it's kirk cameron's birthday!" and that's exactly what she had been thinking.

so happy birthday, kirk. i may not agree with all of your beliefs, but you sure were loveable as mike seaver on growing pains.

Yes, I remember when Kirk first told me that it’s ok to talk to homosexuals and that God does indeed want us to witness to them… good times… Just like that one time, when he and Boner (by the way, is there any way in hell censors let a nickname like that on national TV?????) got into trouble? Yeah, remember that episode?

My favorite line from Kirk on these videos:
"The law leaves the whole world, not just the Jews, guilty before God!"

Ok, i found a better line:

"The law just shows us we're filthy dirty and in desperate need of God's cleansing!"

Happy Birthday, Kirk!

I wish you had punched Leonardo DiCaprio in the face when you had the chance...

Too funny! Happy Birthday, Kirk! He's so weird now.

I am not about what he's doing now either, sorta freaky...but he was super HOT back in the day. And I totally agree on the whole Boner thing! How the heck did they show that on the Disney Channel?

Ah Cadiz! I was sooo going to text you while commuting this a.m. but I fell asleep. My cell doesn't work inside my office building so I was just going to wait until after work. But you beat me too it! HAPPY KIRK CAMERON'S BDAY to you!

Psychic Pimp said...

Ah mensa! I meant, 'You beat me to it' , NOT 'too'. I know that drives you bananas!

Good story about the roommate. My "I know this is going to work" moment with my old roommate came when we both started singing the "Humpty Dance" when we heard someone say, "... stop what you're doing."

Happy birthday, Kirk.

i must be getting rusty, pp. i didn't even notice!

did you get my k.c. note in the mail? (sometimes we send cards to celebrate his birthday)

Kirk was hot back in the day. But he's bizarre now. Did you know that Growing Pains ended its run because of his fanatisism? He didn't want to play a guy who ran around with girls and disobeyed his parents (um, yeah, that's what Mike Seaver was all about). I agree with Jon. Having a friend named "Boner" is a hundred times worse. And Cadiz, now that theme song is stuck in my head. Thanks! [show me that smile again, don't waste another minute on your crying...]

Demosthenes said...

Um. I really have nothing to say about this. Happy Birthday Kirk, I suppose.

That's some tv crush, Cadiz :-D

Whatever happened to that guy... He's near the very top of my Can't Stand list, just below Tom Cruise and Ann Coulter.

I remember watching Growing Pains when I was a teenager. That brings back so many memories!

The best character on Growing Pains was Ben, duh!
