The Luke Perry In Me

Sometimes it feels like I'm playing a character several years younger I really am, kinda like all the cast members of Friends or Beverly Hills 90210. I mean, everyone always thinks I'm in my mid-to-late twenties. Almost all of the girls I go out with are between 21-25. I think I am in better shape than a lot of people who are younger than me. I still enjoy watching Mister Rogers and The Wiggles. What? Oh wait, no "what" necessary there. That was a true statement. I often hear things like "Forty isn't what it used to be" or "Fifty isn't what it used to be.. blah blah." I guess maybe, just maybe, there's a little Luke Perry in us all.

Well, something interesting happened yesterday. After I got home from cutting the grass, I got a call from a girl at the local paper who had been wanting to interview me for a story she is doing on blogging. She asked some very interesting questions. It should be fun to see how that all turns out. I think my best line was, "Well, it's kinda like having your very own Nick & Jessica show, except in my case, it's just Nick."

Later on, Jessica called and asked if I wanted to come over. She said she would cook supper, so I went over there about 6:30. Well, we haven't really seen much of each other lately, so I wasn't sure what to expect. But she had gone out and bought me a cake and had gotten some of those candy letters and put on there. She also gave me a really sweet card. It kinda overwhelms me when someone does something really nice like that for me, especially out of the blue like that. I mean, for me, little ol' me, ya know?

Anyhow, we watched this movie on ABC Family, called The River Wild, starring Kevin Bacon and Meryl Streep. For some reason, I am reminded of the Seinfeld where Kramer gets his phone number changed and starts doing the movie phone thing... (altering it somewhat) "Coming to theaters this Friday, Kevin Bacon... Meryl Streep... YOU'VE GOT TO GET ME DOWN THAT RIVER!!! There's no place wilder than The River Wild. Rated PG. If you know the name of the movie you'd like to see, press one now." Anyway, it was actually a pretty decent movie. Seems like Kevin Bacon often has these weird, psychotic roles.

Did anyone catch any of the Evil Knievil movie on TNT? Well, I was thinking about attempting to recreate five of Evil's biggest stunts, using a much less powerful bike, with no experience, and not wearing a helmet. But maybe I'll hold off on that for awhile ;-)

Oh, I did want to share this article with you: Reaching Adulthood Is Taking Longer These Days Looks like Clifford C. Clavin and those like him were more normal than we originally believed... or not.

"I will be strong, I will be faithful, cos I'm counting on a new beginning, a reason for living, a deeper meaning, yeah..."
