Interesting bit of info

A long time ago when I was still in high school I caught an 80's movie on TV called Some Kind of Wonderful, starring Lea Thompson (best known for playing Marty McFly's mom in Back to The Future), Mary Stuart Masterson (best known for Fried Green Tomatoes).

It was about a guy who loved this really popular girl and although he was on the poorer side he saved his college fund to ask her out on a really special date - when all along he was really in love with his best friend who was a girl. If you love 80's movies anyway you should check it out ;)

The craziest part of the movie was that Lea Thompson's character was Amanda Jones and to start the movie off she was dating an a-hole football player named Hardy Jenns.

Now are you thinking the same thing I am?! How weird!!! Hardy is such an uncommon first name, not only was it used in a movie, but the girlfriends name was Amanda Jones! Ha I remember telling my mom it was the weirdest thing. What was even crazier is that at the time I saw this movie, Hardy and I were taking a break if you wanna call it that and I had gone on a couple of dates with Keith Stevens...to add more weirdness, the "poor" guy from the movie who had a thing for Amanda Jones was named Keith. Obviously none of us were anything like the characters from the movie, but I thought the name link was insane.

Now entering The Twilight Zone...
