This is a beautiful piece. And it sits close to home for me - I got Samantha for Christmas (she was the most aspirational!) along with her little extra box of accessories. And never got another item from the catalogue. My mom scoured craft shows for outfits, my beloved grandpa made her a bed (with a heart cut-out in the headboard), my little brother made her a desk and chair from scraps of wood he collected at a nearby building site, and I covered old shoeboxes with fancy wrapping paper for her "trunks." We Molly'd it up big time, and I would rather have my weird but made-with-love collection than the complete set of $35 outfits and $150 pieces of furniture from the catalogue any day.
@likearollingpin Ugh, that was so uncomfy! Right up there with the time she asked Elizabeth Smart if her kidnapper/rapist had terrible breath.
Oh, you guys are speaking my language! Please to enjoy these:
This is exactly every single passage from this book that I basically had committed to memory as a child. If there was no talk of outfits in my books, I was not interested.
Are we 100% confident this isn't Rich in disguise?
@@serenityfound Only because it's true. That's one of the many unfair things about the theater - there are people who are great at performing and people who are great at auditioning, and they aren't always the same people.
@LilRedCorvette "Hush, girl" sums up Sorkin as nothing else can.
My copy of GWTW opens automatically to this passage. Sigh!
I can't handle this. Jia, you are the level best, and your responses to those woefully bland, uninteresting and toxic dude-bros were spot-on. I raise a cup of lukewarm festival beer to you.
AHP - I love that you love The Way We Were. I have threatened to end friendships with people who refuse to watch it. Well, not really, but I might. Such an amazing movie, so smart and adult and MEANINGFUL, despite the weird sentimental 70s filming.
