Still not bogged down

Three years ago today, I noted that it was then Amanda Peet’s 39th birthday. Different picture, albeit from the same era, today:

Besides, I liked the quote:

I feel like I should be in a Shakespeare play in this dress, but a screwy one — like Sid and Nancy do “Ophelia”.

Before that opportunity presents itself, though, she’s doing an 8-episode series for HBO called Togetherness.

    I now really want to see “Sid and Nancy do Ophelia.”

    Who’s Sid and which Nancy?
    No, that dress is not Shakespeare by anybody; it looks like a Walmart towel (synthetic velvet with cheap glass bling in a random place – higher than waist, lower than “under brests”.
    And altogether she looks awkward and gawky, and the way her legs are posed suggests she’s dying to go to a restroom, but an annoying photographer doesn’t let her.

    Holding it in makes for difficult posing, yes.

    And this Sid and Nancy.

    Uh, no wonder I don’t know that. Have always been averse to this lifestyle, music, the whole thing. They disgust me.
