    From Klosterman's "Sex, Drugs & Cocoa Puffs"

    Once again, Klosterman is four years ahead of the curve.

    Klosterman is amazing. I'm going to re-read that book very soon.

    Really? I fit that demographic (albeit on the older end), but when I think of John Cusack, I think of "Better Off Dead." Not sure I ever saw "Say Anything."

    Yes I am, buckdub ... but I never claimed to be normal, either.

    I had such a crush on the girl.


    She also was in "The Last American Virgin," which is a great flick.

    I'm blaming romantic comedies for my past relationship issues from here on out!
  9. You're going to have to kill all the living witnesses to get away with that alibi, toots.

    The unrealism generated by romantic comedies was discussed long before Klosterman. But it's not bad to have an ideal to aim for, as long as you accept that you'll fall at least a little short.
