(seriously, this just c&p’d off of my online journal from 2008)
It’s a little movie called Career Opportunities. Or, as I like to call it, “the movie that takes place in a Target.”
That’s how I found this movie one day after school way back in 1998 while flipping through the channels (as I would do after school since we didn’t have a computer back then). I got hooked into the movie due to it taking place in a Target, and I loved seeing what Target used to look like back in the late 1980’s/early 1990’s (we didn’t even get Targets in this part of Va until 1996). It gave me the warm and fuzzies because back then Target looked a lot like the discount stores we would shop in at night when I was a little kid. Years ago, I had mentioned this movie to a friend, but I told him that I had forgotten the title of the movie, and I had only seen it once on TV. He automatically knew what movie I was talking about and he said that he liked it a lot too since he was a Target freak. A few days ago he sent me a “feel better package” and it included a copy of the movie.
I love seeing all the old products that I remember mom buying when I was little, like Leggs pantyhose eggs, and
…. CABOODLES. omg, this was the best scene in the movie. I have the light purple and dark purple one, the bigger one on the center shelf.
Also note the Jovan Sex Appeal box Josie is holding. Back when I was able to shop at the BX while waiting for mom at the Commissary, I’d always go over to the cologne section and smell the Sex Appeal.
