Hello, my name is Jess's Friend


I am one Proud friend today.

I have an *amazing* friend from good 'ole PHS named Jess. We've been friends since 7th grade, competed in MathCOUNTS together, went through 4 years of High School debate together, band, calculus, and the ever exciting world of PVW's Science III class, or more accurately, the Adventures of Moo and Oink. Although deemed a bad influence on me (and my liver) early on, Jess has been in my life for a long time and is now forever stuck with me in hers.

Today I ventured down to may favorite theatre in town to see Ang Lee's new movie, "Lust, Caution." Although I went to the wrong theatre and ended up watching the end twice, I can say without a hesitation it is an amazing movie. It might make you blush at some parts, but is worth seeing. I don't think I've seen better acting in a loooooong time...if not ever.

And then the best part of the movie started -- the credits. I watched the names, checking to see if there are any famous Luecks out there I need to network with. Then the post production credits started. There she was, scrolling along in an award winning movie -- Jessica Parks. Live and in living color, my friend from Northern Michigan is officially in the movie credits. While other theatre goers were drying their tears and attempting to digest the ending they just witnessed, I, in the back of the theatre was screaming and clapping, bursting with pride for my friend, the future Oscar winning sound designer/engineer/mixer/etc.

Congratulations, Jess -- you are a STAR.
