Today I received a 1-2 punch of blogging inspiration; Bonnie Franklin croaked and Cookiebitch actually blogged today for the first time in literally two years. I think it actually might be two years to the DAY!
Remember when we all used to blog? Oh, for those fun-filled days of yore.
But who cares about Cookie and blogging!? Bonnie Franklin is dead! Bonnie "Ann Romano" Franklin star of that 1970's jewel, One Day at a Time. The jewel that contained junkie, daddy-bonker, Mackenzie Phillips, and pre-pubescent-wet-dream-inspirator, Valerie Bertinelli.
Franklin was the first television character that shared my name, and it was always so cool to hear it spoken in Prime Time! Remember Schneider? "Ms. Romano." Awesome!
Anyway she's dead and that sucks. Franklin died today at the age of 69, the victim of pancreatic cancer. Frickin' cancer. I wish cancer would get cancer.
