March 18th is one of those days that I remember for a having a rather unremarkable collection of highly related events that occurred (or were said to have occurred) on it. On this day:
- 1956: Kevin Arnold (Fred Savage), fictional character in The Wonder Years was said to have been born.
- 1997: I put my first web page with a visit counter on it. The web page existed before hand but the only date I had to judge by was when I put the counter on it. The page would come to be about The Wonder Years.
- 1998: Danica Mckeller (Winnie Cooper) makes her first guest staring appearance on Fred Savage‘s sitcom Working.
And in 1998 I knew all of this without having to vaguely look up things up on the net to remember why it’s one of those days.
While researching the links for this post, I learned, or relearned, that Danica is in two episodes of How I Met Your Mother as Trudy. The episodes are The Pineapple Incident and Third Wheel. Clearly both of those were worth a re-watch. Apparently she’s also in The West Wing. There’s a vote for that show. I still haven’t decided what show from my list, I should start. Luckily I’ve been to busy for a show recently.
