SIXTEEN CANDLES -- AND NO DECENT PHOTO -- AT 7TH AND MONTANA!


America's Sweetheart Molly Ringwald -- star of such '80s films as Pretty in Pink and Sixteen Candles -- made the scene this morning at 7th and Montana, but all I got was this photo of her looking like a shapeless blob. Let me explain: Molly is a regular at Our Favorite Starbucks, but she keeps a pretty low profile. So low, in fact, that I was never quite certain whether I had seen her or not. For months, people would say, "Isn't that Molly Ringwald?" and I'd say "Really, where?" Today, however, I had a golden opportunity. "Molly's inside," said Hunter. A number of us took turns going in to 'take a peek,' but no one wanted to make her uncomfortable. By the time my turn came around, I sensed that she was suspicious. I tried my usual ruse -- making it look like I was on the phone -- but she was staring directly at my Spycam. Not only that, but she seemed to be holding a Spycam of her own. I knew I had to make it quick. "Can't talk now," I muttered into the phone while taking her picture, "I'm at Starbucks." It wasn't until later that I realized I'd botched the whole thing. Oh well, I guess I've earned myself a 'detention' with the rest of The Breakfast Club!

Ohhhhhh...I just adored her in "Pretty in Pink", "The Breckfast Club" to be sure. I'll never understand WHY she never gave DUCKY a chance...never! I wanted to eat him up! But the one that comes to mind when the subject of Molly Ringwald comes up is "The Pick-up Artist"..Good stuff-good stuff! Entertaining, lite, all feel happy-feel good movies. I wish she'd do something along those lines again. Maybe telling the story from the Moms/Aunts/Older Bestest Friends point of view! What do ya think?

Are you sure it wasn't a case of shakes from drinking too many half caff's?

Many people look better with this exact type of focus. ~Mary
