I was watching Real Genius, a really good geek comedy from the 1980s, on Comedy Central this morning, and one of the stars is a young woman named Michelle Meyrink. I knew I’d heard that voice before, so I looked it up on the IMDB and found out that she stopped making movies in 1988, but not until playing the immortal Judy in Revenge of the Nerds. Yeah, that’s where I remembered her from! A decent but very forgettable actress in most respects, I wondered what had happened to her, so I googled her name.
This is the strangely horrifying result. The perfect woman? That’s not the first thing that comes to mind, but to each his own. It’s just that she’s been invisible for 17 years, so the borders on stalking. It’s vaguely creepy. It’s pining for a woman long gotten older, but still being in love with the images from 20 years ago. Creepy.
Besides, we all know that Jennifer Garner is the perfect woman in spite of her recent indiscretions with Howdy Doo… that is, Ben Affleck. Lucky bastard.
