Movie Monday: The Perks of Being a Wallflower

My brother Lunchbox and I always talk about movies. It’s pretty much the only thing we talk about. Besides Percy Q. Poodle.

Thoughtsy: How’s the West Coast?

Lunchbox: Good.

Thoughtsy: How’s the fiance?

Lunchbox: Good.

Thoughtsy: How’s Percy?

Lunchbox: Good.

Thoughtsy: Seen any good movies lately?


Lunchbox: Did you see Perks of Being a Wallflower? We had dinner with the Chboskys.

Thoughtsy: …

Lunchbox: The writer and director of the movie.

Thoughtsy: Did you just name drop?

I’d been saving my write up of the movie for a special occasion, and I’m pretty sure that conversation counts. Mark this as the day that I began my journey towards linking myself to Kevin Bacon through 6 degrees.

Here’s what I learned from the movie:

  • Have a living room dance routine prepared for homecoming.
  • At parties, don’t eat the brownies.
  • If you do eat the brownies, you’ll crave milkshakes.
  • Always let the guy pick the makeout music.

Most importantly, I learned that we accept the love we think we deserve.

    Oh my god! And since I know YOU, I think I just connected to him through 7 degrees! Woo-hoo, I’ll take it!!

    So there is a dessert Thoughtsy would say no to??? Wow. I need to figure out if I understand anything anymore.

    Also, can your brother introduce me to Kristen Stewart so I’m only one degree from Robert Pattinson?

    I’m TWO degrees from Kevin Bacon because he did a concert in my town and my friend/client is the promoter who booked him and schmoozed with him. I’m about 180 degrees from Robert Pattinson, though.

    I love that movie. Thought it was well done with some great acting. Oh, and it made me teary. Love the six degrees game.

    Don’t eat the brownies?! What kinda movie is this!?

    I’m two degrees from Kevin Bacon because I worked with his cousin. This movie? First off, I LOVED THE BOOK! I read a lot of YA cause it’s what I write and that’s a lovely excuse to get away with it. A couple Fridays ago #2 and #4 were the only ones home with me and they asked to rent it, so I said yes. It’s the kind of movie that as a stepmom of teenagers, I want to keep an ear on, but can’t really be in the room for the whole thing cause they’ll be all “umm AWKward!”. What I saw/heard of it was fantastic. And if I were Lunchbox, I’d be dropping the hell out of that name.
