You Must Choose: Trapped in TV Land

Published in: Just For Fun

Last night I slept a total of about 3.5 hours because of different things on my mind, but in that time I managed to have a few vivid dreams, including one where I was trapped in the 80’s sitcom The Golden Girls.


Perhaps the dream was a cry for help, but, honestly, I can’t think of another TV show in which I’d rather be trapped. I love that show!

Sure, the ladies of The Golden Girls are more than twice my age, but I can’t get enough of Blanche, Dorothy, Sophia and Rose’s hijinks. Plus, the show is set in Miami — hello, surfing. Let the hilarity ensue!

In the dream I moved into the house and became the fifth Golden Girl. Sophia taught me how to cook Sicilian food, and Rose asked if I could post a picture of her new hairdo on the blog. Yup, good times.

I hope I have a Sex and the City dream now, but I really can’t see myself living in New York because I’m a wuss when it comes to cold winters.

Speaking of TV dreams, could you imagine being stuck in The Hills? I can see myself hanging out with Lo and Whitney, but the show’s male characters are terribly sub-par. Could anyone have a meaningful conversation with Spencer or Justin Bobby, the ambassadors of lame?

If you could transport yourself into any show on TV, what would it be? YOU MUST CHOOSE!

    I’ve had dreams where I’ve been on America’s Next Top Model! Alas, I am too short to make it really happen.

    I would want to be on The Office so I could be BFFs with Kelly — we would chat about celebrity gossip and shoes and lip gloss and our coworkers all day.

    That or I want to be on 30 Rock so I could hang out with Liz Lemon. I want to sit at that writing table!

    Nice timing I just checked my Google Reader.haha

    I’ve often wanted to live in a show but for a lot of different reasons. Great clothes, great looking guys… you know? If I had to choose one though I’d say…. The Tudors! Great clothes, great looking guys, although I might get beheaded. I’ll take the risk though.

  3. KK says:

    I think 3’s company (I am a total Crissy!)
    But Facts of Life is another favorite…I was in love with Blaire’s hair!!!! lol! I am such a dork!

  4. Karen says:

    Hi Jeanne,

    I totally love Liz Lemon. I want to be her homegirl, too! Did you see last week’s ep? I cracked up the entire time.

  5. Karen says:

    Hi Bridget!

    I’ve never seen that show, although I do have a thing for the main guy (I can’t remember his name right now). But he was in Bend it Like Beckham a few years back… hello, cutie!

  6. Karen says:

    Hi KK,

    Three’s Company would be one of mine, too. I totally want Jack to make me dinner and I want to hang with Janet at the flower shop. I’d never date Larry though. EWWWW!

    Re Facts of Life, I so wanted to be Jo when I was 7. I thought she was so cool!

  7. Marisol says:

    For me, it would have to be SATC. I love the clothes and the lives that those women had on the show. I am sort of a mix between Charlotte and Carrie with a little sprinkle of Miranda.

  8. Tine says:

    SATC for me. Love love LOVE the clothes.

  9. Brittany says:

    Hmmm….what a fun dream! I could totally see myself being trapped in The Golden Girls. I absolutely adore that show. Although I’m probably do really well in Living Single because I love alll of the characters. Or A Different World.

  10. Shefali says:

    Sex and the City…I can soooooooooooo see myself living that New York lifestyle.

  11. Glamarella says:

    I could totally see myself living that over the top glamorous life of Kimora…I think dreaming about being one of the Girls Next Door would be a real nightmare! Kissing Hugh Hefner…ewwww gross!!

  12. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    That’s a great mix! Who’s style is most like yours? I’m totally 100% Carrie when it comes to clothes.

  13. Karen says:

    Hi Tine,

    Me too! I would like Carrie’s wardrobe (and shoes, of course!) for my birthday! πŸ™‚

  14. Karen says:

    Hi Brittany,

    Yah, it was kinda awesome. The GG’s were really nice in my dream, too. And funny! I remember both Living Single and A Different World. For some weird reason, I always liked Whitley.

  15. Karen says:

    Hi Shefali!

    Yeah, me too… I would just like to be there in the warm weather months! πŸ˜‰

  16. Karen says:

    Hi Glamarella,

    I’ve seen several eps of Kimora’s show and I gotta say… I kinda like her. I would someday love to sit down with her and pick her brain. And maybe she’d gimme some of her awesome Louis Vuitton luggage!

    I never, ever, ever want to make out with Hef. Not even in my dreams.

  17. Ashley Samantha says:

    Used to be SATC, but now? Deffo Gossip Girl. I’m obsessed. I’d be Chuck Bass’ best girlfriend and sit with him in his suite and plot the next loser’s ruin over cosmos and bourbon.

  18. Ashlee Diva says:

    My first choice is definately Girlfriends. I love that show and I’m so upset about it being canceled. Lastly I’d like to be on Kimora: Life In The Fast Lane so I can steal all the shoes out of her closet.

    Ashlee Divas last blog post..Song Of The Day

  19. Bridget says:

    Oh boy you should watch The Tudors! The guy you like, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, is really good. If you don’t know who Henry Cavill is look him up, he’s currently Imaginary Boyfriend #3. πŸ™‚

    My Grandma and her two sisters are the Golden Girls. My cousins and I have said it since we knew who the Golden Girls were.haha Just make sure you never tell your Grandma she’s just like Blanche! (I mean in charisma Grandma…haha)

  20. Marisol says:

    I would say more Carrie since I do like to experiment with different styles. Miranda is too corporate and Samantha (who I also love) has a more provocative style which isn’t me.

  21. Karen says:

    Hi Ashley Samantha,

    So many folks love Gossip Girl! Do you think if I started watching it now I’d be able to follow along, or should I get the past seasons on DVD first? I’m curious!

  22. Karen says:

    Hi Ashlee Diva,

    My best guy friend loves that show. I dunno if it’s the hotties or what! I will have to ask him if he’s bummed about it being cancelled.

    Yah, Kimora’s closet is quite enviable. I would love to have her stash of accessories!

  23. Karen says:

    Hi Bridget,

    Wow! Imaginary Boyfriend #3 is HOT! Lucky you! πŸ˜‰

    LOL, that’s so cute that you’re Grandma has Blanche’s spunkiness.

  24. Karen says:

    Hi Marisol,

    I love Samantha’s character too. I’m nothing like her, but she’s gutsy, and I admire that!

  25. Ashley Samantha says:

    It’s a brand new show and because of the strike it’s a short season, so you shouldn’t have a problem catching up.

  26. Mariah says:

    I’d totally want to be in The Hills! Although my brain, at first, went “Battlestar Galactica!” but that would be too depressing… and I’d probably die. LOL!

    Mariahs last blog post..Drinkie!

  27. Karen says:

    Thanks Ashley Samantha! I’ll Tivo it for next week. πŸ™‚

  28. Karen says:

    Hi Mariah!

    LOL, are you on Team LC or Team Heidi?

    P.S. Adama is a CYLON!

  29. Mariah says:

    Team LC FOR SURE!!! Heidi is getting more and more gross by the day!! All that plastic surgery? She’s kinda a ho-bag. (But I’m still buying the Rolling Stone with all 4 of the girls on the cover! LOL!) Plus, Spencer is such a skeeze.

    And NO! NONONONONO!!! Adama can’t be a Cylon!! Noo. *plugs ears and dances around* I still don’t know who I think the last one is… but nothing will really surprise me. (My surprise mechanism is broken since the whole ending of Deathly Hallows. So it’ll be a while before I’m surprised again! LOL!)

    Mariahs last blog post..Drinkie!

  30. Kay-TEE says:

    HAHAHAHA!dis reminds me when i was 10,i also dreamed about me in a show except it was cartoon n i was thrilled when d charcters said i was part of d show all d time.i am so dumb:D!i in d other hand,couldn’t imagine myself in “The Hills”.i jus’ don’t know,partying w/ them,betreyal n jealousy…..i jus’ can’t even live w/ dem 4 two seconds.but i would happily live in “Gossip Girl” bec. of only 1 thing: FASHION!!! plus living w/ d cash n partying especially w/ Serena n Blair is a dream come true!!! wouldn’t u??? anyway,real funy LOL story,Karen!it made me laugh till i had tears(TRIPLE promise).well i hav 2 go!keep up w/ d great posts,Karen!!!XOXO,Kay-TEE.

  31. Karen says:

    Hi Mariah,

    OMG – I’m buying it too! I was looking at really old pictures of Heidi from back in the day when she was dating Jordon and she looked really different. Have you noticed, too, how she is constantly flipping her hair back for the camera? I long for the innocent days of Laguna Beach (seasons 1-2).

    Okay, okay, I must confess… I have no definitive evidence to back up Adama’s Cylon-ness! I do want to put that on a T-Shirt someday! πŸ™‚

  32. Karen says:

    Hi Kay-TEE,

    That’s such a cute dream! Maybe if I could have another TV dream I could get stuck in something like Jem and the Holograms (but you might be too young to remember that cartoon).

    Have a good day!

  33. Glosslizard says:

    If I could add a movie, I sure wouldn’t mind being trapped in So I Married and Axe Murderer! I’d hang out drinking uber-cappucinos with Mike Myers and his buds!

    Other than that, I think I’d like to hang out in Bewitched! It would never be boring, and me and Endora would be homies! πŸ˜€

  34. Megan says:

    LOL you crack me up Karen. I think this is probably the easiest you must choose ever…normally you give us crazy difficult choices. Like would you rather be transported to Flavor of love 15 and have to make out with flav or be stuck in reruns of full house forever. LOL

    So Golden girls is definitely on my list…I too love the GG. But I would probably go for something like Will and Grace. CSI miami was high on my list too, but knowing my luck if I transported into that mess, I’d be a victim… LOL SATC definitely wins for fabulosity with me though.

  35. Amanda says:

    I always wanted to be on GILMORE girls-I’m right in between the ages of Loreali and Rory, so I thought I would be friends with both! πŸ™‚ Or now, maybe, for a newer show Heroes (but oh, dangerous, my life could be in trouble) or Pushing Daisies (ummm-PIE).

  36. Tammy says:

    My #1 pick is One Tree Hill..I love that show..I love the setting, I love the musicians that are always on, and I love the fact that the friends are family..doesn’t hurt that Chad Michael Murray is HOT!!! lol..

    Pick #2 would be get to be a doctor,
    but not deal with all of the bad it comes with..Score!!

    Pick #3 would be Friends..come on who hasn’t wanted to be friends with them..??

  37. Christy Lee says:

    Buffy for sure. I’m all about Spike. haha. Plus kicking ass every week would be fun.

  38. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    If you were trapped in So I Married and Axe Murderer you’d have to get up on stage and do a poem!

    “Harriet… Harri -et!
    Hard hearted harbinger of haggus!”

    LOL, so I’ve kinda watched that movie a *few* times.

  39. Karen says:

    Hi Megan,

    I thought of doing something with Flav but was in a too good a mood to torture you guys, ha!

    Have you been watching the new season? OMG, I can’t take it. Shot of Love 2 has been pretty bad, too. I don’t know what’s wrong with me! I just can’t turn away when it’s on.

    I’ve never seen an episode of CSI… I am a Law & Order SVU girl! I have a huge, weird crush on Detective Stabler!

  40. Karen says:

    Hi Amanda,

    Ahh! Heroes! I want Peter (HOTTIE) Petrelli to fly me around SF (on a warm, sunny day, of course…no fog for this girl).

    Watching Gilmore Girls on DVD is one of my summer projects, LOL.

  41. Karen says:

    Hi Tammy,

    I must confess to also having a fleeting crush on Chad Michael Murray!

  42. Karen says:

    Hi Christy Lee,

    So I thought about Buffy too, but apocalypse thing… oy. Speaking of Spike, I keep seeing him ALL OVER THE PLACE. He played a role in the last season of “Torchwood” on BBC. Of course, he was rockin’ the British accent!

  43. Glosslizard says:

    Karen, Ka-ren, Kaaaaaaa-ren!
    She dissected frogs,
    She writes beauty blogs,
    She stole her neighbor’s cat!


  44. I think I was less than 10 and used to watch Golden Girls on a regular basis. It was kind of weird watching Betty White on William Shatner’s Roast though.

    Oh, and then I caught Hubbo glimpsing a GG rerun a couple of weeks ago! LOL!

  45. Christy says:

    I love Buffy, but would never want to be trapped near the Hellmouth. Although, I would be stuck in Smallville or Torchwood just to get close to James Marsters. πŸ™‚

    So I guess I’d like to be trapped in Beverly Hillbillies. Great neighborhood and down home rich folks.

  47. Megan says:

    Hmmm.. I think my choice would have to be Gossip Girl. I missed the first couple of episodes when it aired over here in the UK so I watched them online. I got hooked so I have just spent practically the whole weekend watching the entire first season. I am hooked on the show and would love for that to my life. I would have perfect hair and clothes and make-up ALL the time. Oh, and I would be Nate Archibald’s other half. A girl can dream πŸ˜€
