Happy Birthday, pretty lady.

If you’ve never seen Mare in action, check her out in my favorite, The Prince and the Showgirl, along side Laurence Olivier. Classic movie magic!

“You know what’s going to happen? I’m going to fall in love with you. Because I always, always do.”
“Always?”
“Mm-hmm. Both times. So you better watch out. You better watch out!”

Good times.

Ahhhh, the memories. 

Honestly, however, I can’t remember ever lusting after Fred Savage. (Although his show “The Wonder Years” had mad skills.) What exactly was Paula Abdul doing on the cover of a magazine entitled “Dream Guys?” I have the same question about the Nelson twins. And who the devil is Corky?
When did I get so OLD?
I do see you, Jordan. Thanks for stopping by. And Zack Morris. Where’s your “cell phone?” And Tommy Puett. . .whoever you are. . .I hope you’re somewhere still rockin’ that mullet, my friend. 
Enjoy this totally awesome (and my 17 year-old self’s favorite) NKOTB ditty!

H is for Harvey

Let’s take a moment to celebrate everyone’s favorite “pooka,” that six-foot, three-and-one-half-inch invisible white rabbit, Harvey.

All these marvelous word were written by Mary Chase (play & screenplay): 
 

 “Years ago my mother used to say to me, she’d say, ‘In this world, Elwood, you must be’ – she always called me Elwood – ‘In this world, Elwood, you must be oh so smart or oh so pleasant.’ Well, for years I was smart. I recommend pleasant. You may quote me.”


“‘You have the advantage on me. You know my name and I don’t know yours.’ And, and right back at me he said, ‘What name do you like?’ Well, I didn’t even have to think twice about that. Harvey’s always been my favorite name. So I said to him, I said, ‘Harvey.’ And, uh, this is the interesting thing about the whole thing: He said, ‘What a coincidence. My name happens to be Harvey.'”

“I always have a wonderful time, wherever I am, whomever I’m with.”
