Twenty-five years since Breakfast Club came out, can it be? As a member of the infamous Generation X, I grew up on John Hughes films. A worshiper of every single one of them. Pretty in Pink was the first time I ever heard of another girl named Andi. I completely related to all the characters in Mr. Hughes’s films, he was a master. Thank you Jen of JenX67 for sharing the clip of four of the cast members talking about the film. It was very special to me.
 Another brilliant and profound post from my pal Julie of Writing Roads, this time on comfort zones. Incredibly, it seems like her and I played the same games (and mind tricks) when we were children. I am not surprised!
 In the category of “damn I wished I had written that one!,” Amy Thomas writing on Haven in Paris (HiP Blog) wrote the Eat Pray Love Paris version similar to what I did for the Sex and the City Paris. I might still have to do my own version with my own flavor, although Amy’s really rocks!
 Euro Chic had another really great guest post this week. In “secrets of french girls,” Ellen Wallace describes the process she went through (while living in Paris for a year) to breakdown just exactly what it is about French women that make them so enchanting.
 My blogging bud Alisa of Project Happily Ever After is in Italy (just a *little* jealous), but before she left she wrote a post detailing why she wasn’t bringing her husband or her daughter. I think it is perfectly healthy to have vacations away from your spouse, in fact I think it should be mandatory from time to time.
 A girlfriend of mine sent me an email this week that had me rolling. But it was too good to be true, as in a true story. So after tracking down the source and finding a hilarious new blog to read I had to share the post that originated the email that seems to be going around the world since 2007! In a post referred to as “The Always Letter,” Wendi Aarons writes an imaginary letter to the brand manager of the maker of Always pads. I dare you not to laugh when reading it!
