When the world never seems to be living up to your dreams

You know, every so often I just have to link to this "Facts of Life Reunion Movie" recap by Pamie and Stee, because it is an absolute classic. Only two months until "Facts" reportedly comes out on DVD, by the way.

This paragraph cracks me up. Cousin Geri! Who was never funny! Ever!

"The kids aren't getting it, so Blair sits down to get real with them. She says that when she was at Eastland her cousin Geri came to visit her, and she was embarrassed because Geri had cerebral palsy. Then she realized that people liked Geri because she was funny and sweet. She also thought that Geri made people feel comfortable by being herself. She says the best way to fit in or be cool is to be exactly who you are. Uh, what does this have to do with stealing a car to break into your mom's old school? "I get it, Aunt Blair," Jamie says anyway, so the stupid lecture is over. So, remember kids, just because you're afraid people will think you're retarded because your cousin is, doesn't give you any right to steal a limo."

I never watched Facts of Life, but I was aware of Cousin Geri and her non-funniness. How amazing is it that she is now wonderful on, of all things, Deadwood?
