Where Were We Then?

Noobies in the houusseee! Customer Love has opened its ever-loving arms to a lovely lady, Carri!  Carri hails from Ohio.  We're so glad to have a new teammate,  now it's your turn to meet Carri!

Welcome back 1989.  This is me freshman year in High School.  I look at this picture and mostly I remember just how long it took to get my hair to look like this.  Teasing and spraying lethal amounts of Extra Super Hold Aqua Net (in the pink can) with my ride honking out in the driveway.  I am pretty sure that I single handedly caused Global Warming.

At this point in time I believe I wanted to be a Broadway actress. (None of that glitzy Hollywood crap for me.  I wanted to be a real actress.)  A few years later I wanted to be a Curator at the Tate Gallery in London.  Mostly for their extensive Pre-Raphaelite collection and the Rothko room.


Carri Facts:

-I have a degree in Art History from Kent State University.  I completed all the coursework for a Master’s, but moved to Florida before writing my thesis.  Although, I did pick a topic, The Myth of Misogyny in Revisionist Art History.  I still believe that one day I’ll finish it.

-I have the same two best friends that I did in High School.  One is a radical left-wing poet and the other teaches 6th grade Social Studies.

-My favorite movie of all time is The Philadelphia Story followed closely by The Jerk.  Every time I get a phone book (which is a lot – I’m not sure why, but the phone book fairy frequents my house often) I run around the house with it yelling, “The new phone book’s here!”

-I don’t think much of time.  It’s a man-made construct to order the chaos of the infinity of space. 


-I truly admire the organizational structure of both the Military and the Mafia.

-I have lived in the same place for 5 years and have no clue what any of my neighbor’s names are.  I identify them by their most prevalent trait (car guy, feral children, no shirt guy, 12 step). 

-Okay, I think that’s enough.  If I tell you anymore about myself then you’re going to start thinking we’re friends and I’ll have to remember your name.

Mostly I'm laughing about the military and them being organized....the mafia, totally.

What, we aren't friends now? That's not cool.

My favorite part of the jerk is towards the end, when he's leaving with his pants down and collecting odd things along the way. Each one is "...all I need! I don't need anything el....and this paddle ball game....but that's it! I don't need...and this chair..." and ten he trades it all for a red plaid thermos! LOLOL
TOO FUNNY! My all time fav is 'Vacation' the first one. I often quote it like that!

Darn! Got to the last paragraph thinking I'd just made a new friend, Carrie. S-k-e-e-t: you can handle that, right?

My all time favorite movie would be The Full Monty if they'd just used the right camera angle for that last shot. ;0)
