I want to take a moment to thank John Hughes.
Thank you, John Hughes, for providing me with classic lines to repeat at random
moments of my life. Mostly by the Donger!
Yesterday, I kept repeating this to my husband. He was getting a little annoyed.
Thank You, John Hughes, for reminding me that some kind of wonderfulness isn't always
dressed in a perfect, skinny pretty package...
but in friendship and realness and my favorite type of cliched persona.
Thank You, John Hughes, for providing us with one of the
best kissing scenes ever in a movie to date.
Thank you, John Hughes, for providing me with a kick butt soundtrack that immediately became
"my favorite style of music" once I heard it years after the movie actually came out.
80's New Wave. Psychedelic Furs, OMD...doesn't get much better. Just sayin.
Thank you, John Hughes, for providing my hubs with classic lines to use at random moments.
Of course, "Bueller, Bueller..." tops them all, but the other day he busted out with the car lot parking attendant line. "You have nothing to worry about, I'm a professional."
Thank you, John Hughes, for making me obsess over Jake Ryan aka Michael Schoeffling,
desperate to find him in any other movie. Which was very few. However, I loved that he
showed up in one of my other FAVE movies ever, Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken!
Thank you, John Hughes, for making me fall head over heels for the 80's,
the brat pack and off color, oddball characters, who always became the heart
of your movies.
These are the movies I adore.
The characters I love.
The music that is the soundtrack to my life.
Of course, you can throw in several other 80's movies to the mix...
Dirty Dancing, Footloose, Say Anything, Mystic Pizza... I could go on and on.
But... first I gotta say...
