The Source of My Problems (ok, only one of them)

(You must have Pretty in Pink memorized for this post to mean anything to you.)

So after last post, I received a few concerned responses and phone calls.  I thought I should clear a few things up.  I would like everyone to know that I know that I am completely and totally insane.  That should alleviate a few concerns.

But I have good reason for being insane.  See, I went to high school during the John Hughes era.  Not only that, but I was a tall, redhead who had a bob haircut slightly longer than my alter ego, Molly Ringwald.  I believe this is where all of my problems stem from.  I truly believe that if I had had a great make out session in the back of a Ford Escort Sedan with either 1) James Spader or 2) anyone named Blane I would only be inviting four kids to my four year old’s birthday party and six kids to my six year olds birthday party.  Because neither of these two things happened, I must compensate.

Tomorrow’s post:  Why Never Having a Duckman means I Will Never Have a 9-5 Job.


  1. Your alter ego ended up on Townies after living in France.

    You at least have Montana.

    Someday I will tell you about Miss M’s very own John Hughes moment at the 7th Grade dance this year!

    (Somewhere between John Hughes and Soap Operas, I was poorly prepared for a real life.)
