As Cool as I Am

Synopsis: Sixteen-year-old Lucy is a tomboy. She gets on well with her father but is frequently separated from him for months on end when he goes to work in Canada. Her relationship with her mother is easy-going and she takes care of most things around the house. She tunes into her sexuality and her not so 'stable' family dynamics. She develops a relationship with her best friend Kenny and starts to realize that her parents' marriage is not as solid as she had previously imagined. She notices that her father's extended stays away from the family are not typical, and that her mother does not pine for her father as much as she herself does.

performance coaches in the state,

Guy Carlsberg.

At the very base of our

lives is meaning.

And this meaning provides direction.

All of our actions are driven by

our most basic beliefs.

It's this base of meaning,

that prevents us from

drifting through an empty

existence at work, at home

in our relationships...

really in all aspects of our lives.

I can't believe I almost made it to

sixteen without seriously

kissing anyone.

And then the first one is

Scott Booker.

You know, memory is malleable.

What does that have to do with Scott

trying to lick the back of my throat?

It means that, every time

that you tell a story,

it changes a little bit in

your memory, so...

you could say that I was your

first kiss, and then after awhile,

it would be kind of like

Scott never happened.

Kenny, I still got dirt in my mouth.

Yeah, I know. You wouldn't have to

actually kiss me, I'm just saying.

I'm thinking of shaving my head.

Well, you'll probably

look pretty cool.

I don't want to look cool.

You'd have to kiss me.

- What?

- To change the memory thing.

You'd have to do it.

All right.

So of course when you start

your soffritto

what's really important

is to remember that

you're only as good as

your pantry ingredients.

Now there's always in my world,

two different kinds of olive oil.

The one that I cook with, keep in

mind that they're both extra virgin.

One that I cook with,

and one that I finish with.

The difference is about 30 bucks.

Then you gotta evaluate your

entire pantry ingredients.

I'm adding a little sea salt.

Sea salt from Trapani.

And then, I also like to use a

little bit of extra virgin olive oil to finish with.

Now this is... they're both

from a similar region...

You know the bad kid always

sits in the back of the class.
