That's Typing Tuesday #8: Unquotable Quotes

"That's Typing" Tuesday, in which I share unpolished, unpublished writings from my vast store of unpolished, unpublished writings. On Tuesdays.

No time for blogging today, but here's a quote I like that I'll never be able to work into a post:

"I haven't seen so much activity since the night I hid the hornet's nest in Aunt Phobia's sleeping bag."—Gomez Addams

LOL. I loved that show.

You know, John Astin (Gomez) is still alive and teaching acting at Johns Hopkins, just up the road from here. He's one of the greats.

I hadn't realized John Astin was still alive. That's good news. By the way, M.M. I love the pix of Buster Keaton and the monkey in your header. Just wonderful. :)

Addams Family should still be available on Netflix streaming.

I'm a little ashamed of my fondness for 80's sitcom Night Court, but not of my love for John Astin's character Buddy. When he explains that he used to be crazy, "but I'm feeling MUCH better now!", and give that patented Astin grin, I'd just plotz.

John Astin also appeared, pre-Addams Family, in a 1962 sitcom entitled “I’m Dickens…He’s Fenster” that my husband, Jim Benson of www.TVTimeMachine.com and I’ll be bringing out on DVD this fall. Astin does a lot of physical comedy in the show, which also stars Marty Ingels, and is about two best friends and co-workers in a construction company where things rarely go right.
