It's a fat girl's name

It really doesn't seem like it's been TWENTY years since I first saw The Breakfast Club. The MTV Movie Awards honored the film, and seeing a hunky grown up Anthony Michael Hall, filled out Molly Ringwald and Ally Sheedy made me feel old; but it's also reassuring since I thought they all looked great.

Seeing the clips reminded me of all the people who felt compelled to comment that I have "a fat girl's name" as though I'd never heard the line before or in some failed attempt to get a rise out of me. Oftentimes, it was just a reflex reaction to hearing my name: lucky me. In actuality, my high school life was more in tune with Sixteen Candles, but that's a story for another day.

After praising the ease of audioblogger in a comment elsewhere, hopefully tomorrow will bring the log in my head to fruition.

  1. And thank you for praising audioblogger over on Nickerblog! I went forth, signed up, and posted my first audio entry, annoying voice and all.

    Thanks for the suggestion!
