I recall my prom night like it was yesterday, or, like I just had a nightmare about it last night, which I did. Somehow, I managed to convince one of the hottest girls in school to attend the high school rite of passage with me. Oh, sure, some would call it the result of blackmail, but I like to think of it as a coming together of mutually beneficial incentive programs. In fact, my date even eventually got into the spirit, swept up in the pageantry of the evening, and as we were having our obligatory prom picture taken, even whispered in my ear, 'This is actually pretty romantic. Just like Beauty and the Beast.' And, so goes prom.
There's no amount of blackmail from the current girlfriend that could get me to watch Beastly, the new teenage romance from the makers of, oh, other crappola teen romances, but I am so tempted for the mere presence in the film of the hot, sultry, recently-de-bearded Vanessa Hudgens, who lights my fire like an incendiary sex stick made of something flammable. Dang, she looked good at last night's premiere for the film. Yeah, it's kind of a girls movie, and, no, I'm not watching it, but, yeah, I am currently re-living my prom fantasy with Vanessa Hudgens as my date. Enjoy.
