Emily: laverne oh hell no! // by one_more_cherrlily_mars on September 11th, 2006 07:15 pm (UTC)
HAHAHA! Well... maybe that, too. Nah - Mike loves her so she must be good, lol.

Nutella is freaking awesome... it's hazelnut chocolatey-ness, so it's basically like peanut butter... except chocolate. AND I LOVE CHOCOLATEEEE.

Your icon makes me smile.

Hee! I've had that nutella pic for awhile and no idea what to do with it. THAT'S SO CUTE! *swipes with credit*. Mike and Annette have damn good taste - Walker, Texas Ranger and Nutella... *fangirls*

Also taking the other two - the LAS book scan is really pretty, and I may need for further mocking of the talents of Con Steffanson...

Awwww... you're icon's realllllly cute, too! :D

I haven't heart much about the Con Steffanson books, other than the fact they exist and are random L&S fan fic-esque things. What the hell are they like?!

I have a particular fondness for that one.

Ahh, Conn Steffanson - Some of his stuff is very interesting and some of it is "interesting". The good stuff is that he gets the characterization of Laverne right, and sometimes that of Shirley and Carmine. He adds some fun details to the canon (like Carmine singing at weddings - something we don't see on the show but that makes sense).

The "interesting" stuff - he can't spell Kosnowski to save his life (he actually spells it with lots of y's, which is the traditional Polish-esque spelling of the name but not the canon - key, I made mistakes spelling it, too, but I'm not paid to keep it correct). Squiggy comes off as being smarter and cleaner than Lenny. The boys have an odd habbit of calling one another "clod". There are a ton of really bad "ironic" jabs at the Nixon administration which horribly date the piece. There are also a bunch of obvious parodies of fameous people (Choo Vargas IS Desi Arnaz! Lizzie Vargas IS Lucille Ball! Dizzychu Productions IS DesiLu!) and thinly-veiled "original" characters that are placeholders for Happy Days characters - i guess the rights weren't bundled off together, but you can't tell me The Great Caruso isn't Arthur Fonzarelli in a cheap coat.

And yet, I'm buying #3 this week and am on the lookout for number four...

Sidenote: your package was sent through registered mail today, and insured, so you'll have to go sign for it when it comes.

It sounds like I'm going to have to get these books just to check 'em out! Where have you been finding them? I've never been able to find them online, except for once on eBay.

Great! I'll tell my dad to make sure he's around to sign the package when he gets it at work! :D

I bought #'s 1 and 2 through ebay, but the last I bought through a used book search service called abebooks.com, which connects to tons of used book stores across the country. I dunno if that's a more trustworthy bet than ebay, but it worked for me!

I'm definitely going to check that site out, because I really want to read them :D

I like them! Especially the MTM ones!! :D *Big fan here*!! And I will give credit to you when I use them, if I do end up saving them all. I just saved the 3rd for now. :)
