I mean who wouldn't fall for the line:
Knowing what you know now, what would you do differently? Peggy Sue is going back with the chance to change her destiny.

Why do I mention this?
Well today I was feeling a combination of stress, agitation and annoyance. It is all related to the Workaholics job. The building industry just sux...
Anyway this afternoon I sat down with a cup of tea in the playroom and uncharacteristically flicked on the TV and it was on. Instant mood change. Peggy Sue got me through dinner prep, the meal, a bath and the boys into bed. I feel myself again.
It's probably the cheesy script. I just love it!
Peggy Sue: Grandpa, if you had a chance to go back and do it all differently, what would you have changed? Barney Alvorg: Well, I would have taken better care of my teeth.
Good advice for us all.

Mr. Snelgrove: And what's the meaning of this, Peggy Sue?
Peggy Sue: Well, Mr Snelgrove, I happen to know that in the future I will not have the slightest use for algebra, and I speak from experience.
Didn't we all dream of doing this in school? I mean who didn't love the idea that algebra was useless?
If you haven't seen it, it's fluff. It's not pretentious. It's chock-full of future stars. It's well worth a watch. It's on my guilty pleasure top 10 movies list, probably even my number 1!
I'm not telling what the other 9 are... they're all mine.
What's on yours?
