Tears for Charlie


Call me a dork, but I dont care. I have to post something in honor of the BEST morning show host on TV ever!! You just cant get any better than Charlie GIbson. :) I have had an odd obbsession with Charlie since I was like 14. I wont even let people turn on the TODAY show in my house. HaHa! Not sure where my loyalty to him comes from, well, I guess I do but I wont get into that. Isnt he someone you would want to be your brother, uncle, dad, grandpa, etc....? I'm glad we havent lost him for good but doing World News Tonight isnt quite as Fun as GMA. You dont really get to see the lighter side of him, he's going to have to be all Peter Jennings and serious. Oh Well, its something. Its really funny when I think about it. I grew up always hating that my parents had to watch World News Tonight every evening. I remeber thinking it was SO boring. But now I am going to do the same thing, I gotta have my Charlie fix! :)
ANyway, Good Luck Charlie, We love you! :)

I thought of you today! Actually, yesterday 'cause I remembered that today was Charlie's last day. I told Nathan, "Sarafu is going to be sad! Charlie Gibson is leaving GMA." I hope you didn't cry too much. And down with the Today show! Mostly because I can't stand Katie Couric. Ugh. My choice in nightly news will definitely be ABC with Charlie. :)

I thought of you too!! I say the farewell mentioned on MSN this morning and I thought, "Oh lord, how is Sara holding up!?" It'll be okay! We still got Charlie.

Hey Birdie- how are you? How's the bump?

Sarafu said...

It makes me feel good that you guys were thinking of me this morning! I cried a bit and Jack kept asking me why I was sad because it would be on again tomorrow. I figured out that he thought I was talking about "Charlie and Lola" the british cartoon! :) Actually I was pretty much a basketcase, all morning I kept thinking, What the heck is wrong with me, Its Charlie Gisbson leaving GMA and I am acting like someone died. Oh well, I dont have an explanation for my explosion of emotion. I guess I am just being an over emotional girl! :)
Yah, Birdie how is that bump doing? I think you should name her Sara! LOL!

Sarafu said...

Isnt that a great pic of good ole Charlie.....So Regal!

leviathen said...

he's the man.

leviathen said...

Charlie and Lola!! I love Charlie and Lola. SpyBaby Syd watches Charlie and Lola. I love the episode where Lola talks about being messy. "Oh Charlie, I'll never be tidy." Kids with British accents are the cutest things ever!! I might just talk in an accent when my kids are growing up in hopes it will catch on.

Sarafu said...

Yah, Levi, He reminds me a TON of dad. Hence the sourse of the weird attatchment to him I assume. Its good to know that you were sad this morning as well. It makes me feel less weird I guess!

GS, I Love Charlie and Lola too! I have always wanted to raise my kids in London so that they would have british accents and sound all adorable intelligent! :)

Desiree said...

Bunny..you are holding up very well. I am so sorry that you won't get your morning fix. Back to java! Maybe charlie and lola will brighten your morning some. My fav is when she says"I will not ever eat a tomato."

Dad said...

Thanks for the compliment, Levi & Sara. I just wish I had his money.

jenny w. said...

wow. that's all i'm saying, wow. between tears over alias and charlie gibson you've had a rough time, haven't you fufu?!

leviathen said...

ah yes..... but money isn't everything it's cracked up to be. eh?

Sarafu said...

Yah Jenny, its been a rough month, not to mention John and Elizabeth moving as well. I have definitlly had better times but I have also had much worse I suppose! :)
Hey, hows the man in your life?

jenny said...

man is good, life is good in spite of yes john and elzabeth are gone and i'll be done with MY JOB in 2 weeks! long story, we're fine, waiting to see what God's sense of humor can conjur up for me next:) at least my heart doesn't really belong to charlie gibson so i don't have THAT grief to deal with! love ya...

Elizabeth F. said...

Sara,
I thought of you too, however I just don't get emotionally attached to TV stuff or TV people, so I don't thoroughly get it. But, I felt bad for you...if that counts for anything! Thanks for all of the mentions of us. We miss all of you. Thank goodness for blogs, they are really helping me keep in touch. I gotta go and dwell on my toothache...the dentist is closed today the 3rd and tomorrow the 4th. Only 2-3 more days of suffering. Say a prayer for me, will ya?

jenny w said...

sara's tv woes, elizabeth's tooth woes, levi's daughter's finger hanging off... doesn't anyone have any happy news?!

Sarafu said...

LOL! Yah, we all sound pretty depressing dont we? I think my brother chopping off his daughters finger takes the cake though! :)

Miss Sara said...

Dan got a new job! It's a fabulous one, too! That's good news!

Sarafu said...

That IS fabulous news!!! Now you can stay home and have babies!!! :) I mean After Nov 4 of course! LOL :)

Annette said...

I wish it could be that easy.

Miss Sara said...

Hee hee. More like November 4th of next year, plus nine months for the little sucker to cook, plus however long it takes to actually get pregnant.

I'm gonna try really hard to not pull a Sara Fu and get pregnant on the honeymoon! :)

Hopefully we'll be in a place where we can get pregnant a year after we get married. We'll see. :) The best laid plans sometimes go awry.

Sarafu said...

Yah, As much as we try to plan God has His own plans! We didnt think we were ready and we had planned to wait two years but ALAS God had better plans. In hindsight there were SOOO many reasons we had Jack so soon. Its best to not put put too many boundries on things because thats when God comes in. :) Its kinda like when you say NEVER.......EVERYTHING I have said I would Never do I have faithfully done! I Do think you have to be wise in planning your family though. I am ALL for having a bit of time with your spouse after you get married! :)

Elizabeth F. said...

I finally saw the cartoon Charlie and Lola. The kids obviously already knew about it...It made me think of you and this post.
Love ya!

Sarafu said...

Yah, welcome to the world of CABLE! :) They watched it several times at my house. Zoe would walk around talking like Lola, it was cute!

Elizabeth F. said...

Yeah, gotta love it! Zoe speaks with a British accent about 50% of the time now and the other half she sounds like a mixed-up midwestern/southern/british/baby talk wierdo! I wish I could get her to talk normally. You know, like me!
