A multi-part Macgyver confession

Get me a shoelace. I'll disarm that bomb.

Elizabeth over at twelve crafts till Christmas has been confessing for weeks. This week it's about her bedleaving (not bedmaking) and its childhood roots. So, I thought I'd join in because Elizabeth is kind of my idol. :)

Remember Richard Dean Anderson?

{confession #1} I had never actually watched a single episode of Macgyver. Nor seen a still image. Nada. I knew who Macgyver was because, well, I haven't lived under a rock for the last 20 years (contrary to popular belief). But I'd never actually seen him.

We borrowed the first couple of seasons from my brother-in-law. It's become an extended-family favorite. To the point that my husband was humming the theme song and my 4 year old niece turned to him, her bright blue eyes wide, and said, "Hey! That sounds like Macgyver!" What quality entertainment we are giving the young America. :)

{confession #2} I may or may not have a teeny crush on Richard Dean Anderson. The mullet wasn't his best look, true. But I used to watch Stargate SG-1 (nerd? why yes, I'd say so...) and think that Colonel Jack O'Neill was one good-looking guy (like another fave of mine, a Mr. Leroy Jethro Gibbs. NCIS anyone?). And {confession #3} I just put two and two together tonight that Macgyver and O'Neill are one and the same dreamboat.

Was I the only one missing it? I know I'm not the only one with a crush, teeny or not. ;)

Uhm . . . can I just say that I LOVE that you are posting more often now!!! You have such good posts!

And I also need to say that this confession rocks because who doesn't love Macgyver and his Saturday Night Live counterpart MacGruber?

Reading your post made me feel very, very old. I watched Macgyver as a kid. It was one of my favorite shows. I remember turning on the TV and twisting the channel nob to the correct channel - no remote control yet. But I'm glad you finally get to enjoy a classic.

As much I was and always will be a Macgyver fan, I my heart will always belong to Mark Harmon. Oh, NCIS. How I love thee.

Wow. I've got to admit I'm a little surprised you didn't know it was the same guy!! But no matter who he is, RDA will always have a special place in my heart.

Okay, you're gonna be SOOOOOOOOO jealous of me because on my way home from China, I was in the LA airport and MacGyver was standing RIGHT IN FRONT OF ME!!! I could smell him! We were waiting in the customs line. Yeah, security stopped him because I'm sure like me, they knew he had turned his underwear into a bomb!

Just found your blog and only just begun to read some of the posts, but I wanted to send a quick comment to say that you are definitely not the only one with a teeny crush on him! I did used to watch Macgyver as a kid and I too watched Stargate so my crush was rekindled in my 20s!
