Another One of My Weird Obsessions

Well, it's not an obsession, per se, but let's just say that a certain cheese ball consuming/belly dancing/partially hearing impaired/ice skating/bounce juggling blogger should be elected to head up the Keith Morrison Fan Club! Watching Dateline this past Friday night (it was a two hour special) solidified my view that there is no better interviewer than Keith Morrison. Nobody conducts a more griping interview. Nobody.


That gravely ominous voice cannot be duplicated, although Bill Hader comes close....

If you haven't yet seen the SNL Keith Morrison spoof, it is "must see" material:



If you follow me on twitter, you will often find me tweeting with @faryl my west coast Dateline buddy/fellow Morrison fan, with tweets such as "aaaaaahhhhhaaaaaaaa" (code for Keith Morrison speak)...

Have I officially exposed myself as a complete dork yet??? If not, more obsessions to come.....


**Update: WHY IS HARDLY ANYBODY WATCHING DATELINE????? I have a sneaking suspicion that if I had been writing about the Real Housewives many heads would be nodding in recognition**

I'm a Chris Hansen fan, myself.

Doesn't the Dateline guy also do those crime stories shows? I watch marathons of them on Saturdays when I have nothing else to do. I LOVE those shows.

Or maybe it's someone totally different and now I look like a moron.

We all have our peculiarities..it's makes who we are! Thank God for our differences- how boring would life be if we were all the same?

Rebecca Jo said...

I dont know if I've ever seen Dateline!!!

Now Anderson Cooper - there's a guy I can sink my teeth into! :)

blueviolet said...

Oh my gosh, that was hysterical! I never really thought about it but he had him down!

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

Listening to Keith cracks me up, he has a unique delivery that's for sure.

Yankee Girl said...

Do you still like me even though I have no idea who you are talking about?

I am behind on blog comments too. It is so hard to keep up!

Mommy, I'm Home said...

Obviously I need to watch TV. I have no idea who that guy is...

Aleta said...

I have to admit.. I'm not one to take notice of who is giving information on the television set, but you've opened my eyes :)

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

I like him too but probably not as much as you.

Lucy said...

You really like that Dateline show and I have to admit I am not familiar with your Crush (LOL)

Michelle Pixie said...

I've watched dateline a time or two...but I have to say I would be the guilty one who would be nodding my head had we been talking about the latter... *covers face* but it's just too scrumptious not to watch those girls are a hot mess and make me feel like I got my stuff in order and they are going to be knocking on my door any minute to give me my mother of the year award!

Tater Tot Mom said...

Gotta love Keith Morrisson...he definitely has the most intersting voice of them all! That spoof is spot on!

Christina said...

Sorry, I'm an Anderson Cooper kinda girl. :-)

Joy said...

I rarely watch Dateline but I never watch the Real Housewives. And I can't think of one reporter that I have a crush on, not one! Closest I can think of is Bill Curtis. And he's not a reporter, he's a narrator. A pepaw narrator, at that. But I do heart him. ;o)

Mommyof2girlz said...

Have to agree with some of the other posters..Andy Cooper is my late night dream..lol Kathy Griffin keeps trying to bag him, but I know he's waiting for me...lol

Mommyof2girlz said...

Can I just add that these "Word Verifications" are a little hard to do after a few drinks...Had to re do mine 3 times.. ROFL!

tattytiara said...

Well I don't actually get any tv reception, so if it's any consolation I wouldn't be nodding along if you were talking about real housewives either!

angelcel said...

I know not of whom you speak (don't know why I put it like that - it just sounded more interesting than my usual 'I don't know this guy'). I don't know what Dateline is and the video says that it's not sharing with anyone outside the US. I guess you could say then that I'm out of the loop on this one! ...Although, if I may be so bold, this chappie does remind me of Sam Eagle from The Muppets. :)

Housewife Savant said...

Ooooo, I LOVE Real Housewives, but I've never seen the white-haired guy.
Is THAT Big Daddy??????!!!!!

Robin said...

OMG...ROFL....i especially loved the last one..was that Tim McGraw...I Havent watched that show in so long..when is it on..Now you've piqued my interest...and yes he was Spot On..!..so funny..and Im glad you're weird..I Love weird..!

Randi Troxell said...

i'm with them.. i don't think you are strange.. we all do things we think no one else would understand..

but now.. just for you.. i gotta check at least a couple of datelines out.. i'll report back!

Steph said...

I love Dateline. Used to watch at my desk, but now my job doesn't permit TV watching :(

It probably suggested that category based on the word "obsession" that you chose to describe your issue.

Wear a rubber band on your wrist, every time you do something you told yourself not to do pull the rubber band way back then let it go. Yes it is extremely painful but it works.

Marianne said...

someone commented on my blog directing me to this... I think we may share the same brain.

I wrote it a day before you wrote this hahah

Marianne said...

although I should say, I love to hate him. I don't actually like Keith Morrison haha... he's creepy.

Tracie said...

I used to watch Dateline all the time. Now my children NEVER sleep and I'm unable to watch tv due to the screaming. Oh, my kids are loud too. :)
