RIP Larry Hagman

Just found out that he went to the big audition in the sky.

The weird thing is, I was just thinking about him a few days ago.

As a kid, I liked his character in I Dream of Genie, and thought it was cool that he was an astronaut. I had a crush on Barbara Eden but since her character was always getting him into jams, she exasperated me, and I wanted him to stuff her back in the bottle. I guess I didn't understand the point of conflict in story development. I just read on IMDB that Hagman was apparently difficult to work with, and they considered writing him out of the series by having him lose Genie's bottle (to then be found by his replacement), but the studio liked him.

I wonder if we'll have to wait eight months to find out what killed him.

Shock and titillate me! I've got money!

Hey do you reckon Major Nelson bat for the right team? He never seemed overly interested in Jeannie.

Sleep tight Larry.

Yes, me too. I had a bad case of "genie woody," over Barbara Eden.

In fact, just quietly, I`d probably still knock it up her and I wouldn`t say that about too many 78 year olds.

My apologies to anyone that was eating when they read this.

She said, "You can`t take ANYTHING seriously, can you?" I just laughed.
