This week it seems like everyone from my past seems to be crawling out of the woodwork. Pictured above is my good friend Amanda N. I don't know why I still call her Amanda N., since we are no longer in Catholic school (OLPH or Old Ladies Pool House as we liked to call it), where there was an Amanda N. and an Amanda K. Although, Amanda K. works at Las Margaritas on 4th...so, there is a chance that we all might be in the same room together and I would have bring out the intials to tell them apart.
I've known Amanda N. for about 20 years or so, and as you can see with my brilliant montage, we've changed alot over the years. We look older and a little bit smarter (although I think I looked pretty cool in my punk phase...does it count as a phase if it lasted 5 years?). But besides us growing into two charming young women, we've also changed a lot in our personal lives. She has two lovely kids and is engaged....I don't have either. But I do have a job that is slowly growing on me (very slowly) and my own column which was just launched on our webpage today....Hallewood Beat. Yes, I have always thought that Halle and Hollywood would one day meet...just not this way. But hey, I'm not complaining. The point is, looking back, neither one of us would have guessed that we would end up the way we are...but that's life I guess. A series of twists and turns, just windy enough to keep you guessing.
