Welcome to the future kids.
Still no hoverboards. That's a bummer.
In case you somehow missed it, this past Wednesday was the day in the "future" that Marty McFly travelled to in Back to the Future II.
It was also the same day the Chicago Cubs got were eliminated from the NLCS.
Goat trumps Flux Capacitor.
With all the hype, this week's cheesecake selection was a foregone conclusion. Its almost like it was destiny or something.
Please say hello to Lea Thompson.
Ms. Thompson played, of course, Lorraine Baines McFly, Marty's unintentionally Oedipal mother in the trilogy.
But Back to the Future wasn't her only contribution to 80s sci-fi. Between Parts 1 and 2 of BTTF, she appeared in both Space Camp and Howard the Duck.
I think we can all agree the less said about Howard the Duck, the better.
She also appeared in 80s classics like The Wild Life, All the Right Moves, Red Dawn, Casual Sex? and Some Kind of Wonderful.
It should be noted that in that one she was the object of Eric Stoltz's desires. Eric Stoltz was the original Marty McFly.
It's all a flat circle kids.
Insert obligatory Caroline in the City reference here.
These days, Ms. Thompson is appearing in the ABC Family series, Switched at Birth, and she had a cameo as the object of Kermit's desire on The Muppets a few weeks ago.
That's a solid career kids.
Let's hit the links.
