Stay gold, Ponyboy.

In my grade 12 yearbook a friend of mine who was a year behind me in school wrote, "Stay gold, Ponyboy." I have always thought it was terribly clever of him. Cause you know, I was leaving high school and who the heck knew if we were ever going to run into each other again? (I DID stay gold, btw.)

ANYWAYS... in case you didn't remember, that quote comes from The Outsiders. Which I am watching right now. I am thinking about 2 things right now:

a) WTF ever happened to C. Thomas Howell? Like, after that friggin weird movie where he dyed his skin to pretend he was black?

b) Ummmm... knowing what Leif Garrett looks like NOW I kind of want to throw up for thinking this, but whoa. Was that dude ever hot back in 1983! Check it out:

Well, hello there. I like your plaid shirt. Let's date, you drunken fool!

Also, I totally just spotted a very young Sofia Coppola. Totally didn't know she was in this movie. It's kind of awesome. You should watch it. Even if you hate the book it's worth it just to see the hotties. (Yay, Ralph Macchio!)
