Need the escape hatch!

I spent this morning in court (nothing dealing with me or my family, we're all good) and it was a pretty stressful circumstance. It all turned out well, though, which goes a long way, whew!

Anyway, I was looking for something to cheer me up, AND I got an email from an old friend asking me what's up with my (lack of) blogging. She is one of the friends I've had the longest, so she's pretty important to me. I met her in 7th grade, you know, when life sucked hard all day every day! Now she's working in the Philipines, so I'm living vicariously through her, since I'm never going to get my big butt much past the Yucatan, and I fear that was a one-shot deal.

Those of you who follow my blog will be glad to know that this is the same friend that I attended sci fi cons with in #9 of my Geek 13.

So, to kill two birds with one stone, I'm posting this scene from a movie that she and I watched about 600 times together back in the day. This scene always makes me happy (as does the next one where he sings solo for Penny Priddy) and it did the job for me again today. I hope it has the same effect on her, and on you all. This is one of the best movies ever, and you should go rent it right away if you haven't seen it. Heck, even the end credits are awesome!

This one's for you, Fris!

Happy Halloween tomorrow. What are you going as? I'm going as a harried mother of 4 who's not getting enough sleep...

I was hoping you might vamp up your costume a bit more than that. ;)
I watched that film almost as much as you did. I remember it was on one of the movie channels and we watched it a lot.

Thanks for the blast from the past.
I forgot to answer your question... I made a brief appearance as the serial killer from Alice, Sweet Alice, but my heart wasn't into Halloween like it has been in previous years.
I had completely forgotten that Peter Weller starred in that film. Imagine, Robocop, Buckaroo Banzai and Engineering an Empire. What a resume.
You are the best, Jen! This clip just made my day. :)

Thanks, babers!
