RIP, Olivia. Big Bird - And I - Will Miss You.

AlainaReedHall This one of those deaths-of-people-I-only-know-through-popular-culture that actually had the power to make me tear up. Alaina Reed, aka Olivia from Sesame Street, died yesterday and I when I heard the news I actually had to stifle a sob. I mean: OLIVIA. She was awesome. She wore beads in her hair

If you were a Sesame Street fanatic in the late seventies and early eighties, these might make you cry, too:

RIP, Olivia. We're sure going to miss you..

This makes me very sad.

I saw the Sesame Street float at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade this year, and I was THRILLED to see Luis, Maria and Gordon (I think). My kids had no appreciation for it whatsoever, but it made me misty...and now I am again.

RIP, Olivia.

Man. Olivia was my FAVORITE. Listening to "Christmas Eve on Sesame Street" is so bittersweet this year.

RIP Alaina. Say hi to Mr. Hooper for me, 'k?

Oh, Olivia. She has such a comforting face to me. I guess because she is reminiscent of my childhood. Until now, I really thought her name was Olivia! We'll miss you.
