Tremendous Rambling and a Movie Rec

I just skype-texted with my sister and got super-nostalgic for my younger days. Why? Because when I asked her what she was going to do today, she said,

“[11:24:23 AM] Beth: volunteering at special olympics to get absences erased in my 8 am hps and then sing tonight. besides that, nothing and a lot more sleep.”

Not fair. She’s just now getting out of bed and I’ve been up since 7 because my husband (curse him) woke me up to say, “Don’t you want to go to the gym?” Why, yes, dear. I fell asleep on the bed with all my clothes on. I’m still asleep now. Of course, I’m filled with a burning desire to go and work out.

So, yes, I did get up and go to the gym. The only redeeming event of the workout was that this, possibly my all-time favorite movie, was on:

If you haven’t seen this movie, I demand that you go watch it immediately. It’s all about the possible combination of two private schools into a coeducational facility, and it is excellent. Three factual statements to prove this:

1) Our dog at my parents’ house is actually named after this movie – her name is Tinka, just like one of the main characters.

2) Smalls from Sandlot as a teenager – so crazy to see someone like that “grown up.”

3) “Up your ziggy with a wa-wa brush.” Probably the most famous quote from this movie and it just makes me laugh when I hear it.

Okay, maybe those are not the most convincing facts, but it’s a funny, cute movie, perfect for a rainy day like today, and it’s cool to see so many celebrities in their teenage days –

Kirsten Dunst

Kirsten in the movieKirsten now

Rachael Leigh Cook in the movie (pre She's All That)

RLC now (from when she was on Psych)


Tom Guiry from the Sandlot

Tom in the Black Donnellys

And there’s more – including Matthew Lawrence and Lily from The Princess Diaries.

Okay, that got really rambly, really quickly. I started out with complaints about not having free time,  and apparently, based on the celeb photo stalking I’ve done in the past 20 minutes, I have pl-e-nt-y of time.

Go watch this movie and have a happy Saturday! 🙂

  1. I love that movie!!! Haven’t seen it in forever!!!

    I hate Saturday work outs too…. For some reasons weekdays it’s easier because weekdays suck anyway, but Saturdays/Sundays are just no bueno. I wish I could take weekends off.
