Prompted by the creative mind of Nicki Elson, I bring you my entry for the I’LL TUMBLE 4 YA Blogfest. We are supposed to Post a picture, video, or whatever of the celebrity you most tumbled for in the 80s---along with your feeble justifications, of course.
If it were not for the celebrity limitation, I’d be telling you about my best friend and future wife right now. We met in 1981 and were married in 1983, so obviously I devoted a good portion of the eighties crushing on her. But we are supposed to select a celebrity, so I’ll follow the rules and reveal the personality that I most hearted back then.
Yep…Halloween girl herself…Jaime Lynn Curtis. Although the movie was officially released in 1978, I didn’t get around to seeing it for a couple years and that’s when my infatuation with JLC began. She exuded that “girl next door” persona that I responded to. And even as her career took off (Halloween 2, The Fog, Trading Places, Perfect, A Fish Called Wanda, True Lies, etc…) and she adopted more of a sex appeal image, to me she still maintained that endearing quality I enjoyed.
So, there you have it…my youthful crush exposed. What a wonderful journey down memory lane this turned out to be! Thanks Nicki!! :)
