My older brother has had alot of problems over the years…but one thing he is NOT…is boring. The other day, we were at mom’s shooting the breeze…and we wound up talking about some of the cool 80s movies we haven’t seen in a while. One of those happened to be Revenge Of The Nerds. My brother can do a mean Ogre impersonation…though when we were kids, he reminded me more of booger. He very rarely lets me film him, so he must have been in a really great mood to let my husband and I catch his Ogre impersonation on camera (and of course, Ms. I-have-to-have-all-the-attention-on-me joined in with him….she had no idea what we were talking about, but that didn’t stop her).
Another favorite of ours were the Police Academy movies….maybe I can get him to do his Bobcat Goldthwait impersonation one day. While he was all the time going around asking where to put the batteries when we were kids, I was dressing up and acting out Grease and Dirty Dancing (seriously, I had both of the entire movies memorized). I probably drove my family nuts dancing around the house, pretending to be Baby and “flying” on the arm of the couch (give me a break, I didn’t have a hunky partner to throw me in the air, so I improvised)…or standing on my chair stage, serenading my audience about my hopeless devotion to Danny Zuko. *sigh* Those were the days….
