What the World Needs Now

So…this is awkward. I left without so much as a “BRB” or a “I’m shutting this mother down,” but gentle readers, surely you understand…Miss Bliss was engaged, she planned a wedding, and said wedding was, well, blissful. She got busy. She had lots of thank you notes to write. And so the dream that was Zack Morris Cell Phone was laid aside without fanfare, the abandonment was unplanned. Like the last time you wore a choker or a bodysuit…did you KNOW it was the last time you were going to wear a choker or a bodysuit?

But lately, as life has calmed down a bit, my thoughts have turned back to ZMCP, to nostalgia, to comments and memories shared by readers and fellow bloggers, and most importantly, to things we need to bring back in 2012. After all, according to John Cusak*, 2012 marks the end of days. Shouldn’t we go out in style?

4) And while we’re on the subject as twenty- and thirtysomethings masquerading as high schoolers, La Abdul’s finest cinematic moment–not to mention the only palatable deployment of Keanu’s “acting” career. (And don’t argue about “Bill and Ted,” he’s not acting in that, he didn’t even know they were filming.
