Let's all just relax and watch some Bert and Ernie, shall we?
Now that I'm an adult one of the things that amuses me about Bert ad Ernie is how much they remind me of Courtney and myself. Of course the similarities are extremely exaggerated, but the basic characteristics are there. The goofy and the exasperated. The round and the narrow. The whimsical and the practical. Courtney is not as uptight as Bert, and I am not as childlike as Ernie, but we bring out the Bert and Ernie in one another. Courtney and I have always had a bit of an Ernie and Bert thing going on, right down to the allegations of "more than just friends". Why can't two friendly puppets/violists live together in a one bedroom apartment without everyone accusing them of being gay? Hee.
The first clip this week is so cute you might freak out. If there is anything in this world cuter than Bert's little nephew Brad, I don't want to know what it is because I might die of cuteness.
The second clip is a classic Sesame song. Oh, woe is me. There's a bird on me.
