John Stamos Causes Massive Revertigo

I'm not really going to talk about Glee. This is somewhat of a revertigo post, so prepare for juvenile drivel. The people who can best relate to this are GenXers like myself. I'm going to talk about John Stamos. FYI, Chip and I can no longer say John Stamos like normal human beings. Every time we have to mention John Stamos, we turn to each other squarely (if the other one is in the room) and repeat "John Stamos" a la Will Ferrell and John C. Reilly in "Step Brothers". You know, from that scene that went like this (not verbatim):
Dale: Okay, name your favorite dinosaur?
Brennan and Dale: Velociraptor!
Brennan: Favorite non-pornographic magazine to *bleep* to?
Brennan and Dale: Good Housekeeping!
Brennan: If you were a chick, who's the one guy you would sleep with?
Brennan and Dale: John Stamos!
Dale: WHAT?!?
Brennan: Did we just become best friends?
Dale: YEP!
Anyway, sigh. Uncle Jesse. John Stamos ("JOHN STAMOS!") doesn't seem to age. I wonder what it's like to be Jayma Mays (Emma). She's Chip's age. Think. I'm 3 years older than them. I am the same age as Candace Cameron. I was about 11-12-13 (I probably gave it up after this, since the show ran until 1995, but I have no memory of the latter seasons) when John Stamos ("JOHN STAMOS!") was being all hot as Uncle Jesse. Jayma would have been in between DJ and Stephanie's ages. It's like a Katie Holmes-Tom Cruise thing, except less because it's just for TV and not real life. So, basically an 8-yr-old grew up to be in her 30s and be John Stamos' ("JOHN STAMOS!") love interest when he's almost 50 except that he looks 30 and just honestly hotter. He should totally play a Greek god (has he?). They're going to make him sing and do percussion in Glee, right? Preferably in a Beach Boys episode. I mean, they have to. Really. I can still vividly recall pictures of him from my copies of 16, Teen Beat, Tiger Beat, etc. One was with 21 Jumpstreet's (Johnny Depp is another forever hot dude) Holly Robinson (did they date?), another one with Paula Abdul (hehe), more with the Romijn woman... I know John Stamos  ("JOHN STAMOS!") is just a recurring guest, but Emma should totally (I mean, TOTALLY!!!) ditch Will Schuester forever and marry Carl!!!
When the revertigo subsides, I realize more than ever how many years have truly passed. I do miss being a tween, or the tween equivalent then (because back then the tween behavior seemed to start later - maybe 10-14, instead of 8-12? Or maybe that was just me). Before I know it, I'll probably have a tween myself. Hopefully, Marguerite is not going to be as ridiculous as I was.

Well, I didn't have a crush on John Stamos, but I DID have a major crush on Susan Dey from the Partridge Family many decades ago. I just "Googled" her and can't believe we were both born in 1952!

Judging by your daughter's behavior the other day, I think she's inclined to go down the same road but with better hair!=b

@Vera: 'Di ba? So unfair how some people just get hotter while the rest of us look older. lol
