The strobe lights on the driveway and darkness of the backyard made it difficult to take notes. When I overheard someone talking about Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland having a seizure on a plane, I said, “I might have a seizure trying to write with this flashing light.” Paul’s dad then offered me a flashlight.

As the DJ turned things up a notch, a few people broke out the cardboard boxes to breakdance on. It was fun to watch. I was there for an hour before leaving.

I never heard an ’80s rock song, but then, it wouldn’t have fit the vibe and look of the crowd.

Star Wars is in my Top 5 Greatest Movies List. I remember seeing it in its original film release when I was 8 years old AND in Los Angeles. It was nuts. Of course I had a crush on Mark Hamill. Years ago, a close girlfriend and I had a discussion, rather she kind of condescendingly told me that I probably liked Mark Hamill (back then when we were little) and she was the only cool one, out her friends, who liked Harrison Ford. It was funny to me because she was right to assume that.. and now we both love Harrison Ford.

Yeah...interesting that YOU move over to liking Harrison Ford, now that he's a big box office star, and Hamill is signing autographs at sci-fi conventions.

And I wonder...when people talk about their favorite Beatle, they never pick Ringo. With Star Wars characters, is there one that is always left off the list? Obviously Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams are on the top. And because of his amount of body hair, Chewbacca never makes the list....
