Flash Cadilac -Sex Lies and Video Tape?

Things You Didn’t Know About Me
A chapter that never made it to my book: Flashbacks of Little Miss Flash Cadilac.
Pinky, and my, how things have changed.
My name in the punk rock era was Pinky Piranha, and I had a Fushia Hot Pink  1976 Stingray Corvette with pink sparkles on it. For 15 years after I closed the store I had a cart, and I walked.
 Desperately Seeking Susan Clone
 I have watched Desperately Seeking Susan over 100 times, because I  feel I lived the Rosanna Arquette part, minus the criminals and jewelry heist.
Heavy Metal Self Gratification
I love playing air guitar to strains of AC/DC ‘s “Highway to Hell” and “You Shook Me All Night Long” at death defying volume. Van Halen, Whitesnake, Boston, Journey, you name it I can play it. How about a little Uriah Heep?
 Bearing Children with Strangers
I screamed at Rob Zombie so many times when he played  a club in Montreal, security was watching me carelfully. What was I screaming?
“Rob, I want to bear your children !”
I said the same thing to Catherine O’Hara about John Candy one Saturday afternoon in my store in Ottawa.  I told her to relay the message to him, and she had quite a laugh.

 Being a Conversationalist
I had a 15 minute conversation with Max Headroom (Matt Frewer) waiting for my baggage in the Ottawa, Ontario airport. I also did the same thing with Christopher Plummer, and Leonard Cohen at LAX. I figure you only have once chance in life so you might as well take it.

Teaching Aerobics my way
I used to teach aerobics at The Sussex Club in Ottawa. I made the very elegant women ‘from the hill” get down and dirty and dance like Jennifer Beals to “Maniac” at least once a week. Oh yes, and do butt exercises to “Sir Mix a Lot”. Exercising should not be a chore. Of course it is now. I have trouble walking!

Thanks to Wendy Daniels from BOOM FM I now have a 20 minute video of the fashion show we did for 54 Rock. This is just a snippet featuring: Gabriella Studor, Michelle Belanger, Lisa Constatine, and Sally Baillie among others were models.
