Happy Birthday Tara Reid!

Looking through the Life & Leisure section of the newspaper, I noticed that Tara Reid turned 30 today. A few things came to mind: (1) Is there any male left on this earth that she hasn't dated or hooked up with? (2) When one of the stars of the high school movie of my generation--American Pie--turns 30, I realize that I am getting old myself. (3) American Pie was about a group of high school seniors back when I was a high school senior, yet Tara Reid is 6 years older than me. Ever since time immemorial, and I don't know why, directors cast people much older than the characters they are playing. I think it began with the play Peter Pan, which always has a 40 year old woman playing that 12 year old boy. On Beverly Hills 90210, every actor was at least 10 years older than the high school character he or she was playing, including Luke Perry, who was like 35 then. But, on the bright side, I don't have to feel guilty about finding the high school chicks hot on movies and tv shows, because I know in real life that they are probably my age (24) or older.
