Amy says:


“I’ve had just about enough of myself today.”

This is Amy, my twin and best friend, and her dog, Mr. Boo Radley.  Amy comments a lot on my posts – you’ve probably read a few. Of course Amy and I share a birthday.  What year? EVERY year, dumbass.  Amy was once a centerfold with real staples in her middle and everything!  Today she’s much cooler than that.

    Amy says she lovvvvves her Franco :p

    And cool, that, I will never be. sigh

    But how about the fact that I was actually just making you a card an hour ago. We probably did these things at the same time thinking of one another because we are so connected. I love it. And YOU.

  2. Steve says:

    Well, let’s see.
    Happy Birthday.
    Wow, She is CUTE…and Amy is really attractive also : – )
    OK, she’s DAMNED attractive: – )
    Cool dog. I am a 100% dog person.
    And a cool dog name.
    In fact, it’s one of my favorite sayings (and all time fave books, and movie w/ Gregory Peck and the best scene with Scout)
    “Hey Boo!”

    If only more lawyers, and dads, were like Atticus.

  3. amy stahl says:

    thanks Steve. Im 10 years older than those staples now; so it means a lot.

    my father was very much like Atticus actually. Very Much.

    and Ive always been told Im just like the Scout character.
    which is why my buddy had to be named Boo Radley. ; ]

    Franco and I have some SERIOUSly sweet memories. And when I say sweet, I mean better than anyones. 😮 wow.

    An attractive woman, with brains (from what I’ve read here) and she likes dogs.
    And if your’e like Scout, Lawd `ave Mercy! : – )
    I was re-reading “To Kill a Mockingbird” and a coworker was like, “I don’t get it”. I flipped. I let her borrow the movie, and she was “eh…it’s ok, I guess, I still don’t get the big deal”.
    I went all book-geek on her. it was like someone telling a Trekkie that Capt. Kirk was a p*ssy.
    I told her, if you don’t like this book/movie, I don’t even know how to talk to you. I just can’t even look at you the same.
    I mean, yeah, in 10th grade, ya’ might not get it, but who gets anything in 10th grade? Well…you know.
    If anyone is interested, (speaking of books) there’s a couple of more recent books out , “Child 44” and now the sequel, “The Secret Speech” by Tom Rob Smith that I am REALLY digging.”Child 44″ was really good, and I’m about halfway through “Secret Speech” which is equally good, if not better. Ridley Scott is making a film of “44”.
    If your’e into horror stuff, like a cross between Stephen King and the twisted humor of Chuck Palahniuk…I highly recommend “The Pilo Family Circus” by Will Elliot”
    Clowns from Hell.:- )

    I was very young when I first read, “To Kill a Mockingbird”, my favorite book. I still remember the huge lump in my throat when she said, “Hey Boo!”

    Amy is the real life “Scout”. Brilliant, sensitive – with a sad, lost innocence. And yes, drop dead gorgeous.


  6. Steve says:

    Yeah, I get a little verklempt when that scene comes up (and we’re manly enough to admit it: – )
    “Here, talk amongst yourselves, I’ll give you a subject…Rhode Island is neither a road or an island…discuss”

    I don’t want to know anyone who doesn’t.

    it’s like when Dororthy says good bye to the Scarecrow…I lose it.
    “Stay in Oz, Girl, Stayyyy!!!!”

  7. Brenda says:

    What an adorable picture! Mr. Boo is a cutey. So Amy you are ten years older than the staples, huh? That must make you like 25? 🙂

    I don’t know how old you are Amy, It doesn’t matter. You look great and HAPPY which is even more important.

    I am in the same boat as you. I always fret about how old I look. I always ask my husband “Does she look older than me?” I hope he says yes (which he always does because he isn’t a stupid man). I am pathetic because I am way too smart to get caught up in such insecurities, but alas I do.

    Steve, thanks for bringing up “To Kill a Mocking Bird”. I knew I recognized Mr. Boo Radley’s name from somewhere. I think I will go to the library and see if they have it so I can read it again. It has been a long, long time.

  8. Frank Paolo says:

    “Mockingbird” fans – Amy, Brenda, Steve, etc.: Harper Lee, of course, was the author (I’m not googling any of this so please excuse my memory if I get it wrong) based her character of Cecil (?) remember ? the prissy, young brat who was a friend of hers and Jeb’s on (are you ready?) a young, TRUMAN CAPOTE with whom she grew up in Mississippi, (fill in ANY antebellum State – doesn’t matter) who turned into a real life cartoon character of himself in the ’60’s and early ’70’s. He authored “IN COLD BLOOD”, etc. I BELIEVE (from memory) Harper Lee was run over and killed by a car – somewhere in the South – in the early ’60’s.

    My memory’s shot – don’t get old, Kids – the memory is the 2nd thing to go! The first? I forgot.

  9. Joe Belle-Isle says:

    I’d tell ya but why should we both be crying on your birthday. Amy your a pretty girl, but a gentle mind lasts forever.

  10. Brenda says:

    Did a little research for you Paolo. “Dill” was the friend mirrored after Truman Capote. Capote and Lee were friends. She is from Alabama. Finally, Harper Lee is actually still alive, but To Kill a Mockingbird is her only novel.

    Interesting stuff. Thanks for helping me learn something new!

    By the way I already know about the memory stuff. I suffer occasionally from CRS – Can’t Remember Shit. I’ve heard its contagious so be careful.

  11. Frank Paolo says:

    Thank you, Brenda. Of course you’re right. Margaret Mitchell, author of “Gone With the Wind” – was actually struck by a car and eventually died on some “Peach”…(blossom, bud, tree, etc.) Street in Georgia. If you’ve ever been to Atlanta, you know that virtually every street is named “Peach” this or that. A favorite movie of Amy’s and mine is ‘Cobb’ – (Ty Cobb) – known as the “Georgia Peach”

    Have no idea why I incorrectly remembered “Dill” as “Cecil” but still “remember” Truman Capote as having the most annoying voice this side of Rush of Flatulence.

  12. Steve says:

    Well, to continue this train of thought…Yes, Truman Capote is annoying, as is his voice. Whoever cast “TKAM” did a great job, “Dill” was perfect (as were the others (And Phillip Seymour Hoffman did one kick-ass job portraying him) and “In Cold Blood” is a great book (well, great in it’s writing, but sad in being based on a family’s murder).
    I believe, and like FP, I’m going on memory, that Bush gave Lee some award (Freedom Award, something like that)…but I found it sad and ironic, that a guy like Bush, who can barely read, was even in the same room as Miss Lee.
    And yeah, after one novel, and she just kind of ….stopped. Even Salinger wrote more stuff (“Catcher in the Rye” is next on my list).

  13. Steve says:

    but yeah, to get back on subject, Amy is really pretty: – )

  14. amy stahl says:

    (I love Franny and Zooey by JD Salinger.. and of course Catcher)

    I cant believe all the nice things that were said here since I last was here!! Thanks soo much! And also a lot of interest I will come back for; thanks for the suggestions, Steve.

    hmm gentile mind lasts forever you say, Joe.. Perhaps that is my purest interest in To KIll; being it about that real kind of lost innocence.

    and I look happy, huh? That is nice, because I believe I am more of the Holden Caulfield variety concerning that now..
    Cant Remember Shit is right, Brenda.
    One of my favorite things is Beatle Trivia and on the right day I tell people I cant even name Paul, John George and Ringo. Sadness.
    I will only be 32.
