Pinky's Fandance, Woulda/Coulda/Shoulda Wednesday Edition
Yes, I know. I realize I just crucified him in my earlier post, but no matter. I'd like to remember a simpler time when it was just me, 90210, and Luke Perry. Back in 1990 when Beverly Hills 90210 was in its early years, I had a huge crush on Dylan McKay. I didn't even know his real name - I only knew him by Dylan. In fact, I used his character as an example in my Honors English class; this is how much I loved him. So, imagine my surprise to see him and the cast of 90210 at Disneyland one day. No one really knew who they were yet, but of course I did. I called out to Luke (who I called Dylan) and we talked for awhile, even though the rest of the cast walked ahead. He even knew what the reference was that I used in my English class! Smart kid. Of course, at the time, I thought I'd be bugging him if I were to ask for an autograph or picture (oh, how times have changed), but believe me - I've been kicking myself ever since. What was I thinking?!?!!? LUKE PERRY people! Kill me now.
