fondly we'll remember you...

i went to the same school from pre-k through 11th grade, and we were constantly told that if we put in enough hard work, studying, and effort, we'd all make something of ourselves. case in point, kelsey grammer. he graduated way way way before i did, but he won a mantle-ful of emmys, returned 20+ years later for homecoming, got trashed in the alumni tent, and then to make things better, donated a few briefcases of money to the school. another example, andy from the apprentice (his brother sat in front of me in calculus). he was the young 20s recent grad from harvard there to kick everyone's asses, only to get "fired" for not enough real world experience. one year later, he gave a talk at ye ol' high school alma mater about perseverance. oh, and trump hired him. then there's farris hassan, the 16 year-old kid who illegally travelled to Beirut on his winter vacation, hoping to do humanitarian work in iraq. or at least find hezbollah and shoot the $h!t while sharing a plate of warm falafel. but probably my favorite pc celeb is mary carey, who is more famous for her platform shoes than her party platform. and of course, mary has decided to grace us with her presence this holiday season! thanks, mary. you sure know how to make the holidays feel all homey. but not horny.
