True fax: My first boyfriend (whom I shall protect from the Googles in this tale) while in middle school in 1991 chose his college, his major, and his eventual career path based on the lyrics of Marky Mark’s Wildside.

Cause deep inside Annie had aspirations
 Wanted to be a chemical engineer 
Making 50 to 55 thousand a year…

He figured that was quite a salary and so, based on the wisdom of Mr. Funky Bunch, that’s just what he did.


The song “heavily samples" Lou Reed’s Walk on the Wild Side a term that seems like a “heavy understatement” and though the story of a kid from Oregon picking a bright future based on a song of bleak misfortune is quite something, that it’s also just three degrees of separation from the real story behind Walk on the Wild Side (complete with Andy Warhol casting) it sounds even crazier.

On a Very Special Episode of "You Married Someone Who Doesn't Remember the Early 90s..."..."

Me:
Do you know who that is?

Ryan:
No.

Me:
You make me want to weep sometimes.

Ryan:
Why, who is it?

Me:
Blossom. Of TV's Blossom.

Ryan:
Silence. (Jenna von OŸ, I'm so old.)

"I watched a very provocative film last night about internet safety. It was called The Net.”

Because if you’ve only sat still for two films this year (The Great Justin Bieber Film Never Say Never ((HEY. John Waters liked it too)) and the Russell Brand Arthur, a historical 15th Anniversary viewing with a technology anthropologist is… well, it happened.

Verdict? The one thing the film predicted with great prescience: ordering pizza online.

GPOYW: The Trick or Treat Edition. 
Well, kids. Just because I’m in the swamp, doesn’t mean that you all shouldn’t be amused.
Okay! Here you are then.
Left: That would be an actual legit Glamour Shot circa 1994. Even better, it was taken thanks to a coupon for a free sitting that I got at cheer camp. Yep, it just gets cooler and cooler, don’t it?
Right: Exactly twice as old, just in a different costume, one that I will be wearing a week from today at the promotion board. Hence, part of the swamped.
Somehow side-by-side it’s like a photographic pitch for an updated Major Dad, one with a rebellious daughter in an 80s throwback band. That, or there’s really no good explanation.
Hoot at will.
