Since I had so much fun talking about a teenage crush yesterday, I thought I would start today on another one: Uncle Jesse from Full House.
Notice I said “Uncle Jesse,” not “John Stamos.” It’s because I have a habit of falling for characters as opposed to the actors who portray them. (Hence my tendency to fall for animated characters as well. Hello, Gambit from X-Men and Prince Eric from The Little Mermaid!) And while I’m pretty sure that John Stamos is a typical celebrity, Uncle Jesse was a rebel with a heart of gold — a wild biker who gave up his bachelor life to help raise three little girls.
And who can forget Uncle Jesse serenading Becky on their wedding day?
I remember daydreaming about my own wedding as I watched this episode, imagining my future husband surprise-serenading me on my wedding day just as Uncle Jesse did for Becky. Obviously, that didn’t happen because J is about the most un-romantic guy I know. (It’s okay, because he has tons of chances to serenade me in the future. HINT, HINT.)
Why the sudden walk down Full House memory lane? Because I just learned that John Stamos will be joining Glee next season! He will be playing Emma’s new boyfriend which should create some interesting tension (and I’m crossing my fingers for a sing-off) between him and Mr. Schu.
Did anyone else love Full House as much as me? Anyone else have a crush on Uncle Jesse?
P.S. — Just how awesome was last night’s season finale of Glee? It was predictable (including the outcome of the regionals), but I still sat there with a goofy grin on my face the entire time, tearing up at all the appropriate moments.
