remember when Tom Cruise wasn't crazy?...and other things that make me feel old

So I've been back in Keene for four days and honestly, it's good to be back. I feel like I belong here more than ever.

Watched Clueless this morning. I told my mother I thought Clueless defined my generation. My parents had Apocolypse Now and American Graffiti and I have Clueless. Does anyone agree with me? Am I totally off my mark here? Now I'm watching the Firm while surfing through Sephora for Good Things. Remember when Tom Cruise did all those great movies in the 90's? I mean, I know some of them sucked (see Cocktail) but the rest of them were great. His current state of nutcase really came out of leftfield. Poor Tommy...

Um, I don't know if anyone saw that NBC is pimping Law & Order this week because Kathleen Turner is guest starring. One of my fave movies growing up was Romancing the Stone and I thought she was great. She's kind of become a charicature of herself. Like, for example...this is how I remember her:



And I almost killed myself laughing when I saw something that was much scarier but very similar to THIS on TV last night:



I'm totally concerned for her. I see where this is going...



"Mr. Perlman, are you trying to seduce me?"


AAAAAAAAAAAAUUUUGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHH! I'm so scared.

So I don't really have a lot to say. However, I stole this from Nicole because I think it's a good idea.
