AARP All Night

Today, I'm giving a birthday shout-out to Rhonda Shear, who turns 55.

Although the former host of USA Up All Night probably goes to bed around 8:30 these days, I can say I knew that bimbo when she used to rock 'n' roll. And she'll always have a special place in my heart for, you see, it was on her show that I first discovered the glory that is Fraternity Vacation, still one of my all-time favorite movies.

So, here's to you, Rhonda. If not for you, I might have never known the joy that a young, pink Chuck Taylor-wearing Tim Robbins can bring.

You had me at "bimbo", haha!

She's still a righteous babe

Aaah, "Fraternity Vacation". Which has one of my favorite lines in a movie ever...When Kathleen Kinmont enters the guys hotel room, picks up a beach ball and exclaims: "Wow, look at this cool ball!"
Scripted ? Perhaps.
Ad-lib ? Maybe
Magical ? For sure.

I'm still trying to assemble the fragments of memory that seeing her picture has brought forth. I buried this one way deep, apparently.

Hello, Becky! Welcome to Becky Club. I've been joking with Mylittlebecky about you being the final piece in our grand Becky empire, and how I was approaching you quietly in your comments section so as not to spook you before I popped the big question. :-)

It's like I stumbled onto a Lithuanian blog or something. I don't know any of these shows or any of these people. Well except Tim Robbins - he's a tall bugger, you can't miss him.

Ah, Rhonda Shear. She played a part in my transition from boy to slightly hairier boy.

wow, I thought I was the only one who liked Fraternity Vacation. I MAY very well be the only one with it on DVD !!! lol

Thanks so much for bringing up Rhonda Shear. What a blast from the past...I spent many late nights watching her on USA!


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
