Hooray, Jessica Harper! Don't forget her turn as nu-Janet in the Rocky Horror followup Shock Treatment.

Always liked Jessica Harper. This is cool.

Also, she looks eerily like my old professor. Hunh.

The movie version of Pennies From Heaven is awesome and underrated. Christopher Walken dancing on a bar? Very yes.

That cookbook sounds appealing to me; I'm in my first year of being in charge of weekday family dinners, and I swear sometimes at 4:30 PM I'm like "what if I just never went home again?"

She and I swapped books a couple of years ago at BEA. She was very nice when I told I had a crush on her from My Favorite Year.

Amateurs. I was obsessed with Jessica Harper for much, much too long after seeing Inserts in the theater. Damn.

So I'll check out the cooking show.
