He’s walking around
In this dress
That she wore
She is gone
But the joke’s the same
Pretty in pink
Pretty in pink
Who can forget the awesomeness of that song and of course the movie of the same name. Clearly, Pinky is a huge fan! Hello!
I love Pretty in Pink, It’s a classic in the John Hughes cannon, and was such a seminal teen film. Pinky has been lucky enough to meet the entire cast, and finally got the last member she needed!
Check out her recap below!
Hello, my lovelies. Pinky Lovejoy-Coogan here still amazed at the Halloween costume Jon Cryer wore on a recent episode of Two and a Half Men. Did you see it? He was none other than Duckie Dale himself!
Of course, the funniest part of the episode (which I don’t normally watch, but I made an episode just to see him in his Duckie Dale splendor) was that everyone kept thinking he was Ferris Bueller. Classic!
Now, I’ve been pretty lucky in meeting most of the cast of the film Pretty in Pink over the years, but a few weeks ago I met the one cast member who always alluded me, Harry Dean Stanton, who played Andie’s dad in the film.
Yes, I know Harry Dean Stanton is far better known for various other roles in his lifetime, but in my world, he’s Andie’s out-of-work dad with the heart of gold. Harry was doing a low-key premiere at a great venue, so Mikey, Keith, and I headed over to see if we could possibly meet him before the film. For awhile he was just standing in the parking lot smoking as his friend was involved in a phone conversation, so we weren’t sure if we should approach or wait for him to walk our way. Finally, we started walking over there and Harry was as sweet as can be. Not only did he shake our hands and ask our names, but he chatted with us a bit, signed Mikey’s items, and posed with all three of us. Wahoo!
It’s so nice when you actually get to spend some quality time with someone you admire and this was a real treat.
