that's right. i'm going to be one of those people you see sitting outside the theatre waiting in line to get a good seat. as a result i am also going to get about three hours of sleep tonight before having to come into work tomorrow. good times.
while working at ola i made a lot of good friends, and still manage to see some familiar faces when i am out and about. case in point, when my friend jess and i went to haleiwa joe's for lunch the other day, we saw a former ola cook, justin (justin bobby to those in the know) who now works at joe's, on his way into the kitchen.
well you can imagine my surprise when my fish sandwich came out, and was adorned with the exact accouterments i used to request on my north shore burgers at ola-grilled onions and a side of plum sauce. it's been over a year since i left ola, and justin bobby quit several months before i did, so i couldn't believe he remembered that.
so the craft was one of my favorite movies growing up. and i have to say that i have wondered from time to time what happened to the girls that were in the movie. rachel true, faruza balk, neve campbell, and christine taylor have stayed pretty mainstream...but whatever happened to rachel true (the black girl)?
well all my questions were answered the other night when i stumbled across this gem:
(and if you look closely, that's aunt rachel from 'family matters')
the title of the show is called 'half and half', and it airs at 2am on friday night, if the time slot gives you any indication of its quality.
bonus: the episode i happened to tune into also featured joey lawrence. it was like a joyous reunion of mid 90s stars.
now if this show weren't amazing on its own, i find the fact that it ran for FOUR seasons to be the ultimate surprise. four years? really? and freaks and geeks only gets one?
so it has been blazingly HOT lately. not that i don't enjoy living in hawaii, but sometimes i want to go home and take a nap after work, without increasing my chances for getting skin cancer. thus, i was elated to wake up today to the sight of cloudy skies, and light trade winds.
unfortunately, by the time i got to work, those lovely trade winds had carried the clouds out of sight, allowing mr. sunshine to continue making me feel like a melted popsicle.
