So, this is my life.

And I want you to know that I am both happy and sad and I'm still trying to figure out how that could be.

a glimpse into my soul

...whether you wanted one or not.

the video below contains so many things that i treasure:
  • Adventures in Babysitting, my favorite childhood film and still a favorite today.
  • Elizabeth Shue. i fell in love with her when my parents inexplicably allowed me to watch Cocktail when i was young, and she remained at the top of my list through The Saint. she's amazing. or at least she was. i don't know anything about her nowadays.
  • the '80s. if you came of age during this decade, you must have a special place in your heart for many of its icons and fashion horrors.
  • finally, The Crystals' "And Then He Kissed Me." today this song is one of the most played in my iTunes library, as it never fails to improve my mood and general outlook on life and love. give it a listen. you'll find yourself smiling, i promise.

this truly is a glimpse into my heart and soul. enjoy.

We might be soul mates.....
That is, if you weren't gay and I weren't already in love with another man. But you know. Soul mates....

Elizabeth Shue gives me serious boob envy.

that song definitely did made me smile-even more so listening to it with the movie clip.

It makes me so sad that she's getting ready for and singing about Mr. "So Cool."

And this scene may or may not be why I begged my mom for a four-post bed and sheer bedroom curtains. Love it.
