Yo Bert, Yous and Ernie Rock!

When I was a kid, I had Ernie and Bert puppets. Then one day, my little sister, Amy, tore off Bert's hair and eyebrows. My mom was so freaked out by it, she drew Bert's hair and eyebrows back with a sharpee marker. My mom still has the Bert puppet with the drawn on hair and eyebrows - my kids play with it (man, sharpees are good markers, yo).

Today, my husband found this. If you are an Xer - and this doesn't bring a tear to your eye, then I'm not sure you're really an Xer.

What's your Sesame Street memory?

This one is for you Amy!

I swear I'm really an X-er, and I love the muppets and Sesame Street, but I don't love hip hop music, so this video didn't bring a tear to my eye.

Sesame Street memory -- as a teen I was told, and still kinda believe, that Bert and Ernie were a gay couple. I think my kids think that too. Healthy role models!

When snuffelupogus used to be only seen by Big Bird and people thought he was imaginary. Now everyone can see him.

I always loved Grover!
