AGE RANGE
20-39

HOW LONG I HAVE BEEN A 'LUCY' FAN
Over 15 years.

HOW MANY EPISODES I HAVE SEEN
Under 100.

HAVE I BEEN TO JAMESTOWN, NY?
Not yet.

THE CHARACTER I MOST RELATE TO
Ethel

WHY?
I can probably relate to Ethel Mertz the best.  She always tries to do what is right and tries not to be selfish but sometimes can't help it.  She is always there for Lucy and supports her to the end.  I am just like that.  Also, I am the landlord in MY apartment building!

HOW OFTEN I AM ONLINE FOR 'LUCY'
Always

MY OTHER FAVORITE TV SHOWS
I love to watch the "Ed Sullivan Show" reruns of musical performers on Much more Music.  I am also addicted to "Rock and Roll Jeopardy"

WOULD I CHANGE MY NAME TO LUCILLE BALL OR DESI ARNAZ?
Yes.

Of the following episodes:
     
"Lucy Is Enceinte"
     "Lucy Does A TV Commercial"
     "Job Switching"
     "Lucy's Italian Movie"
my favourite episode is:
     "Job Switching"

MY FAVORITE LUCY OBJECT
I have a novel of the biography of Desi Arnaz somewhere.  I read it about 13 times in the past 10 years.

HOW I DISCOVERED 'LUCY'
When I was about 13, I was home with the Mumps for about 2 weeks (what a drag).  So I inevitably began watching TV incessantly.  As I was flicking, I heard this voice.
It was like the clouds opening up in heaven and a ray of light falling on Earth.  Then I managed to but visuals with the image.  There was this gorgeous man strumming a guitar and sitting on the edge of a chesterfield.  And what a voice!  I fell in love!  It turns out that he was Desi Arnaz.  I have always made time to watch Lucy reruns ever since, and now I am a huge fan.

MY HOBBIES
In my spare time I like to wrote short stories about society in the 1950's and 1960's.  My favorite movie is "American Graffiti" and that is major influence.  I actually met Richard Dreyfuss.  I love him, and he is such a kind man in person.  He gave me his autograph.  I also enjoy bike-riding often and reading books by Dominick Dunn.

WHY ME?
I should be a fan of the month because to me, watching "I Love Lucy" is not just a form of immense entertainment, it is a state of mind.  I become transported back to the day when i first saw Ricky seated on that couch with his guitar, and suddenly, nothing else exists, and the world around me is in black and white, and everyone has dyed red hair.
