Gadzooks! The Wayback Machine is being operated a day late! But the anomaly is only temporary; for you see it's a special occasion... the 37th anniversary of M*A*S*H hitting the airwaves is today.
I heart M*A*S*H.
Yep, back in the 70s and 80s I was ... and still am, a M*A*S*H-aholic. I couldn't wait to watch it every week. Hmmmm... I wonder if that had anything to do with my going into the healthcare field? Wouldn't be surprised.
I laughed when Frank got justifiably pranked.
I did NOT cry when Henry was unexpectedly killed....
Oh crap. Okay, I'll admit it. I did.
I still look forward to watching M*A*S*H every day on the History channel, even though I've seen it so much, I can irritatingly recite each episode verbatim. I can, but I don't... well, since I'm usually alone whilst watching it and I hate it when I irritate myself.
Back in 1984, my friends and I (all fans, natch) attended a "M*A*S*H Bash" -- a hotel social while vacationing at the lake. We made costumes, shopped for accessories and created decor appropriate for the occasion.
Our group had Henry, Hot Lips, Klinger and Trapper. Hubby was Hawkeye.
And me? Who else... I was Radar - complete with a teddy bear and Grape Nehi (after all, I was the DD).
Nowadays my only M*A*S*H fashion (Mashion?) is the T-shirt that came with the Atari 2600 game in 1983.
What? You can't say that it surprises you that this Geek has the Atari game can you?
Or that she still WEARS her M*A*S*H shirt?
Well I told you I was a M*A*S*H - aholic. Duh.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have some classic episodes to recite, erm watch, on Tivo before the rest of the family gets home.
