Weekend Assignment #47

Weekend Assignment #47: Teenage Crushes

Time to swoon for this week's Weekend Assignment:

Weekend Assignment #47: Reveal Your Teenage Celebrity Crush! Oh, come on. We all had one. Share yours, and tell us why that particularly celebrity tripped your teenage trigger.

Extra Credit: Tell us: Do you still have a little teeny bit of a crush on that celebrity? Yes? No? Maybe so?

Here's mine:  Olivia Newton John, I think it was the movie Grease when I first started loving her.  Something about her, not sure how to explain it.  Every year I would get her new albumn for Christmas.  I wasn't so crazy about the "Physical" albumn, but she was my celebrity idol most of my teenage years.  I used to get out my sister's teenbeat magazine's and find her address and write her, but I never got a response back. there was however one person I wrote that did respond but I was more like 11 or 12,  It was 1977, and I wrote a letter to Debbie Boone, I remember I was in the 6th grade.  I was crazy about her too, and loved the song "You light Up My Life", I don't remember what all I wrote, but she actually wrote me a letter back in her stationary, it wasn't one of those fake kind of letters.  She sent me this beautiful picture of her and autographed it, I had it framed and hung on my wall for a couple of years.  I also met Loretta Lynn and shook her hand, and got her autograph also.  I thought she was a beautiful woman too.  Still do.  Extra credit!Have you seen Olivia lately, she's still as beautiful as she was when I was a teenager, so yep!

I'm so awful.  I haven't done the assignment yet.  I think I'm going to bypass this one.  I remember being boy crazy for a while (whew, I'm glad I'm past that phase. NOT! lol)

Olivia Newton John had some innate good quality about her.  Very few actresses nowadays have that style or dignity.
