"Saturday, March 24,1984 ...

... Shermer High School, Shermer, Illinois, 60062. Dear Mr. Vernon, We accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. What we did was wrong. But we think you're crazy to make us write an essay telling you who we think we are. What do you care? You see us as you want to see us - in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. You see us as a brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal. Correct? That's the way we saw each other at 7:00 this morning. We were brainwashed."

I've just re-watched The Breakfast Club and I loved every second of it. Even though it's nearly 25 years old, I can still quote the opening / ending sequence verbatim! I was a real Brat Pack fan and was totally in love with Andrew McCarthy (swoon) and I think I've seen just about every John Hughes teen angst film. The Breakfast Club and Pretty in Pink were my favourites, but which was yours?

I hear you girl! Pretty in Pink is just about my all time fav. And I, too, swoon at the thought of Andrew McCarthy - guess that makes us women of a certain age - LOL.
