I've got a confession to make.
I've never read Slaughterhouse Five.
Not until this week that is.
And, as it turns out, this was the right week for me to pick it up.
Things have come untethered here at home base. Big changes are afoot and I needed I've needed several heaping doses of "So it goes" to get me through the week.
Billy Pilgrim's mantra seems like a philosophical cousin to Dalton's "Be nice 'til its time to not be nice."
The storms will pass and reveal new horizons, until then, let's meet this week's cheesecake.
Please say hello to Drew Barrymore.
The original Hollywood hellchild, Ms. Barrymore first appeared in E.T. She then went on to star in Firestarter before diving pre-pubescent head first into Tinseltowns' 80s excess.
She came out on the other side with the help of David Crosby (?!?) and reestablished herself as a go to movie star.
She's been in a list of movies too long to mention. They include Charlie's Angels, Batman Forever, Scream, Fever Pitch, Curious George, and, of course, her trio of rom-com's opposite Adam Sandler - The Wedding Singer, 50 First Dates and today's new release, Blended.
Oh, and there was that time she flashed Letterman. Good times!
If you want to go batshit crazy and come back, you should probably follow the Drew Barrymore model - well, maybe you could leave out the marrying Tom Green part.
So it goes.
