It's Not TV, It's HBO Telling You You're Old

The Boyfriend: ::Yelling from other room:: Hey, have you heard of this movie Benny & Joon?

Me: Yeah, it's a good movie. ::As I walk into living room::

Me: Cripes, this is an old movie, look at how young Johnny Depp is.

The Boyfriend: It's not that old. ::Hitting info button::

::TV displays 1993::

Me: Um, honey? 1993 was 15 years ago.

The Boyfriend: ::Sheepishly amused look::

Still, it's a good movie. Even if it does make me feel bloody old.

Hey, and here I am thinking that Dirty Dancing and Pretty Woman are still new-ISH flicks!

1993!?! Ay! I remember going to see that at the theater. And I just got over the fact that Jodie Sweetin- the girl who played Stephanie Tanner in Full House- is hugely pregnant. She's twenty-five! I feel so old.

Ive seen Aidan Quinn in real life and you cant take your eyes off him. He's freakin gorgeous.

Mary Stuart Masterson not becoming a big star is yet another sign that there aint no justice in the world.

Awwww...I love this movie! Every thing that is old becomes new again...to someone, anyway.

Also, love the Goo Goo Dolls video in your side bar. Johnny used to be so hott! sigh.

Seton: OMG! I would probably tackle Aidan Quinn if I saw him in real life LOL

Jodi: I know, I miss the Goos rockin' out. All there "adult contemporary" stuff is interchangeable and blah....
