Bring Chris, Ashley, cats, and lots of good wine (well, no need to travel with wine... plenty here, of course...).
LOL ... Uh ... No cats but maybe Ashley if she is willing to part with the cats for a trip. ;)

Reading now, but not watching the videos (at school...). Interesting conversation. I don't really recognize the 1977 dot matrix-cast pics, though I saw a lot of the show when they did a half-hour syndicated package in the 80s... I have (so glad THAT we have) the first five seasons on dvd, but no time to watch them, of course... 'someday'...

Meanwhile, Ghostbusters was a very big deal to 11 year-old me when it came out in 1984, and it starred two great SNL alums, Dan Aykroyd and Bill Murray (Aykroyd also cameoed in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom that same summer...). The Ghostbusters reboot opens Friday and stars current SNL stars Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, alum Kristen Wiig, and recent frequent host Melissa McCarthy (and Cecily Stong in a supporting role, and Bill and Danny make cameos).
