From Yale to Jail

A thirty something Ivy Leaguer keeps the public aware of her opinions on things topical and struggles with multiple demons: alcohol, the law and remaining effortlessly hip in a changing world.

If you ask me Doug, you're the one who is immature...


Spicoli! Posted by Hello
I was lucky this morning to find "Fast Time at Ridgemont High" just as it was coming on!!! I love this movie more each time I see it. Sean Penn before he was arrogant and self satisfied. He actually appears to have a sense of humor. Watching this, I can understand why Madonna married him. This movie is second only to "The Outsiders" for having every future star before they became famous in it! Playing bit surfer parts are Anthony Edwards and that kid from Mask. Nicolas Cage is in it for a second, although he was still going by Coppola then. Lana Clarkson makes a brief appearance too. You remember, she is the one Phil Spector supposedly shot a couple of years ago. Mike Damone and Mr. Hand, the late great Ray Walston, are my fav characters! Who are yours???

    Spiccoli and Mr. Hand. Definitely my fave "Fast Times" characters. That movie also shows when Jennifer Jason-Leigh was kinda cute (before she got all creepy in Single White Female).

    I do love Fast Times. I remember watching it with my friend Wendy. Cause we weren't allowed to watch "trash like that" at my house!

    Judge Reinhold is my favourite character along with Spicoli. I love Spicoli simply for ordering a pizza into class.

    JJ Leigh always gave me the creeps. She's ugly in a clammy kind of way.

    Jennifer favors 'edgy' acting roles which have only added to her ick factor.

    Those damn checkered Vans. They are responsible for my falling in love with a total ass.

    As far as my favorite character, why I like the pirate of course.

    I knew his name. I was trying to be obnoxious.

    today, life is manageable. i miss my boyfriend (sob) and i'm not sure if i can stay away from him. i'm a helpless codependent i guess. but i had the motivation to clean myself up and go out with a friend for the evening (to an art show and to supper) so all and all, i am okay. i feel can relate to your frustration and i don't want to sound trite or be cliche, but hold on... hold on for dear life, and don't let go. i'll try to do the same.

    Never seen it. Sorry. But I do enjoy the Outsiders a lot. It's a classic. And I just saw "Jonny" in another movie last night, and was quite proud that I realized who he was.

    Lana Clarkson was Mrs. Vargas.
    How about the asshole customer who got Brad fired? They grow guys like that in hothouses then let them loose to bother entry-level employees.

    I can't believe that:
    1) there are people who haven't seen the movie, and
    2) no one has even mentioned the beautiful, beguiling, and bikinied Phoebe Cates. One of the best soft-porn clips of all time!
