lookin good kiddo

every girl had some guy on their wall as a kid, right?  it was probably whoever you cut out of Bop or Tiger Beat.  or, if you were lucky, you got the edition with the pull-out poster in the middle!  for me i was lucky to have my dreamy beau hunk KC plastered above my bed.  you know who i’m talking about.  the illustrious Mike Seaver.  that ol’ smooth faced cutie pie, Kirk Cameron. 

i recently saw him doing press for his new book and i was delighted to see that he has only aged a year in the past 20.  holy cow is he still super super cute!  he reminds me of tom hanks in this way (though i am in no way attracted to tom, i just think he never ages either).  for those of you who haven’t seen him, this is what the little devil looks like now…

cute, right?  although he’s never done any noteworthy or amazing work, kirk’s really done a great job keeping up his looks.  he married his onscreen sweetheart, chelsea noble.  isn’t that cute too?  and the man has 6 kids.  SIX KIDS!  he’s only 37!  it may not seem like alot to some of you but when i think about M having 6 kids by now, my eyes cross.  i can’t even imagine having that many kids… ever.  for me 2 would be nice.  still cheap enough to afford because i don’t think i could do just one.  i couldn’t even have one dog, i had to go buy him a friend.  we’ll see though.  i have a few steps to get across before any of this is an issue though.

back to kirk.  i hope that if i ever have boys they can retain their looks like this.  heck, i hope M retains his looks.  granted he doesn’t look 14 anymore but he doesn’t look his age either.  and i met him just after his father died so i’m not sure what he looked like.  now that i think of it, i’ve never even seen a picture of his father.  M doesn’t have any pictures in his house.  he has one of his nephews and that’s it.  seriosuly, one photo in a frame.  it’s odd.  maybe i should go buy him some frames?  we have a ton of pictures of us and i should probably force one upon his home.  maybe.
okay, so i guess that wasn’t back to kirk really, but i had nothing else to say about him.  except that while i spent many days of my youth daydreaming about being his girlfriend (i always dreamed it to be something like that episode where they put on “our town”) i never thought about him moving on with his life without me… but it appears he did.  and somehow he’s made it work without me in it.  good for you kirk.

  1. I never had one favorite. It always changed :) My walls were covered with different teen idols :)

  2. That’s a hell of a first name for ol’ Ice.

    Also, did you know that your boy Cameron is a nutty Christian? Like, he’s fucking crazy about religion. Look it up.

  3. I think he looks even better now! But maybe thats because I am older than I was back when I watched Growing Pains.

    I saw something about him on E! or VH1 the other day about how he is super religious now. Perhaps that is why he has 6 kids?

  4. You know how he’s a little bit nutty with the religion now, yes? ( It’s probably because you’re not married to him. If you were, things might have worked out a lot differently. :)

    (I had it BAD for Corey Haim.)

  5. yah, i’m familiar with his religious activism. i also agree that it’s why he’s got so many chi’dens already. alas, one of us would have had to change. and here’s a hint: it wasn’t gonna be me.

  6. My mom always used to tell my sisters and I what a great, moral guy KC was. He wasn’t always as religiously intense as he is now, but the Cameron family could have been the poster-people for Functional Families in Showbiz. Mom would usually talk about KC with some little lesson about how we should look for his traits in men we dated one day. Yeah. So that obviously worked out (sarcasm here).

    I loved Candace Cameron on Full House, though, and I admit that I did fantasize about being with her brother … though mostly so that she could be MY older sister.
