She's the only one that I was like "huh?" Who is she? I probably do not watch enough 'young people' movies.

You got Buddha and Twin Peaks. Go Sus! Happy early Birthday.

I don't watch any. But I've been thinking about starting. First Grey's Anatomy, then BSG.

Thanks. That's the LJ icon-maker 2000 for you. That's a pic of me Valentine's Day 2005 on a film set. I just got my hair cut and hilighted two hours ago, it's all chin-length and blondish. :)

I think your Bhopal trumps my space shuttle.

No surprise, however, that you slide right in with Biz Markie and Starbuck--you are just that cool. Happy birthday!
