Catching up- With Long Duck Dongs Girlfriend?

With Baby Coco's first birthday, Easter and my fortieth only now am I coming up for air! I have work to do! I am working with Beth Dunn at Social climbers on a very special project! Details soon!

This weekend I made the commitment to have a garage sale with the neighbors to PURGE much of the unwanted, and no longer needed, clothes, toys and stuff. The older I get the more I am hating STUFF. I want to de-clutter and clear out!

We raked it in at the garage sale, but more importantly, one of my neighbors stopped by for a little chat. She said she hadn't met me before but knew all about me. I was standing there staring. I knew she was an actress but what movie? She kept talking and I kept staring, and then it hit me. Scared I might be wrong, this is how the conversation went:

"Actress right?"


"Sixteen Candles?"


"Head gear?"

"No, that was Joan Cusack."


"Long Dick Dongs Girlfriend."

Ahh yes. Long Duck Dong's girlfriend lives in my neighborhood. My obsession with John Hughes lives on.

Some of my favorite movie lines ever came from Sixteen Candles. "What's happening hot stuff?" "No more yanky me wanky the donger need food"

I hear ya on wanting to get rid of stuff! Every day I am looking around and realising how little of this we need!

I have been purging a lot lately!

So how did she know all about you?

Great catch! That was a tough one. I thought I was good when I spotted Jakes dud girlfriend as a shrink on OTH last season but LDD girlfriend in your neighborhood...too fun.

My neighborhood yard sale is next month - nothing that fun will happen :)
