I Remember Andrea

I have a secondary school reunion coming up in December. Not so interesting, but I’m in the slightly unusual position of being back home after 12 years away. Coupled with the fact that I didn’t go to my local secondary school, but one a few miles away, I could get away with stuff.

In short, I haven’t been back since I sat the Leaving Certificate. With the exception of three or four people, I haven’t seen anyone from the school since then.

Why bring this up? Well, I could go, or I could send someone else in my place. Like a stripper!

That is exactly what Andrea Wachner did, and she filmed the results producing the movie / documentary / reality show “I Remember Andrea“. An exotic dancer chosen by Andrea called “Cricket” (I’m assuming its her stage name and not her real name, then again, given my name…) attended the reunion in Andrea’s place wearing a tight black dress and high heeled spiked boots with fishnets.

She then told her classmates she had reconstructive surgery and had suffered amnesia after a car crash which wasn’t altogether to far from the truth. The car crash was true, but not much else. For those doubting the story, Andrea was in the hotel, set up in the room above the ballroom where the reunion was taking place, Cricket information through an ear piece and watching the monitors of the roaming cameras (and on occasion phoning home with reports of the action in the room below).

No details on when the movie is coming out in Ireland, but it might be fun to do something like this.

    Cricket reminds me of Jeanine Gurofello, Girefellow, Gurrrroffffelllo? Meh!

    I think this is a super idea. I might just give it a go in, oh dear, one year.

  2. Will says:

    I know the feeling (then again must re-watch Grosse Point Blank for the school reunion feeling).

    Could you talk Zooey to go in your place?

  3. Lottie says:

    @Will – I was think that – I’ll just ask her to put some curlers in and she’ll look just like me :I

    @Will Send me in your place. Go on…

    (That film looks pretty cool. Must keep an eye out)

  5. Will says:

    @Lottie, does that mean if we straighten your hair you can be the mascot for Culch.ie instead of Zooey?

    @Darren, let me get back to you… but maybe

  6. Lottie says:

    @Will – Ehh…no. I was a mascot for something once – it didn’t end well. I hadn’t realised there was so much dressing up involved – It got tired fast.
