"And not a lot of people know that!" # 1

And so we find ourselves at the first in a sporadic series of utterly trivial pieces of information... Nothing shall be too inconsequential folks. There will be no rhyme and reason to it all. Do enjoy!

# 1. Sloane Peterson marries James Bond's young fella. And the heir to The Muppet Show. Whilst flying.

Yup. It would seem that Mia Sara - the actress who played the delectable Sloane Peterson in John Hughes' classic
Ferris Bueller's Day Off - has led quite an interesting life since her 1980s heyday.

She is a qualified pilot. She was inspired to learn after her action packed role in Van Damme's

She was once married to Sean Connery's son, Jason, for six years.

She is now married to Brian Henson, the son of the legendary Jim Henson.

Altogether now... And not a lot of people know that!

Jeez, she was hot in that film. It's amazing how things change. Another crush from my teen days was Winnie Cooper from The Golden Years. Supposedly she's now a published maths expert and came up with an important theorem or something. Bet you didn't know that!

Swiss: I certainly did not! Ah, Winnie Cooper, Sloane Peterson... Better times :)

ha do you know these things?

Angela Lansbury lives in West Cork, that's all i know

John Cav said...

Rapture: I know a guy who knows a guy... You know the way these things work :)

As for Jessica Fletcher in Ireland, I was aware of that yes... Perhaps living here is her way of making amends for that awful episode of Murder She Wrote set in Ireland... Total muck.

Re: Angela Lansbury lives in West Cork. This is indeed true for I know of a couple of gentlemen whom shall remain nameless that did proquire a bottle of fine whiskey from her premises one faithful night when she was stateside. She never did solve the case ;)

Anonymous: Fabulous story! If more than slightly immoral... However, I must ask, do I know you? A simple yes or no answer will suffice :)
