Just When I Think I Haven't Mortified Myself Enough

So. I have a treat for you.

Just when I think I can't possibly expose anymore of myself.

Just when I think I can't share more of the intimate and mortifying details of my life.

Just when I think there is nothing left to laugh at.....

This turns up.

Remember that TV mini-series I did when I was 16? Well, none of the footage remains, and sadly my only VHS copy of the show disintegrated long before the invention of the DVD.

However, an intrepid reader, Suzie, dug this up from the archives of the Australian Film and Sound Archives. A very short clip from my series, Butterfly Island, showing me, as Sally, with Grandma hair, Harry Highpants shorts, no bra, and a man wearing long white socks.

I figured I could either show it to you myself, or wait until someone else outed me.

And so, without further ado, here it is.

My shame.

  3. OMFG. Which from now on stands for Oh. My. F**king. Grandma.
    I literally just inhaled and then snorted my pepsi while watching that. I think I have damaged my sinuses.
    But it was worth it.

    PS - the hair. I realise it's 1985 so it was always going to be about  the hair, but... the hair.

  5. PRICELESS! And you're rather gorgeous despite the hair-do.

    I'd be more mortified if I was the scriptwriter, just quietly...

  11. That is .... that is.... I dont know what I am even trying to say. But I was grinning like a moron the whole way through watching. Very cool Ms Sackville! Your costar was a bit of a spunk - was there ever any tongue action?

  19. I know I'm meant to laugh, but I think you looked (and still do) absolutely stunning! Yeah, OK, so the hair and the clothes leave a bit (lot) to be desired, but it WAS the 80's!

  31. After picking myself up off the floor, I realised on the third viewing that your younger 'brother' had more to be embarrassed about - seriously!

  32. So where do you keep the Logie???

    Loved it, babe. If ever I am feeling blue I will just think of those shorts. If I'm suicidal, the hair.
