You're not gonna believe me.

Nobody in their right minds

could believe me.

But it's true.

Really, it is.

At exactly 8:
15 this morning...

No, wait.

Let me start back further.

My name is Annabel Andrews.

This is my room.

I like it this way.

You don't have to look

for anything.

[Alarm buzzing]


Good morning.

It's Friday the 13th.



No way.

And this is me.

Born in Mountview Hospital

Give or take a month.

Female, blond.

Natural, of course.

Blue eyes.

Height about 5'2".

I don't remember what I weigh,

but I'm watching it.

Which my mother says

is ridiculous

because I'm not mature

in my figure yet.


Maybe by summer, though.



I have one little brother.

Look at him.

Gorgeous hair,

gorgeous teeth,

gorgeous eyes,

gorgeous eyelashes.

He's what you call neat.

Not neat terrific.

Neat neat.

He is so neat it's revolting.

He only does it to show me up.

A goody-goody, you know?

A perfect person and a creep.

His name is Ben,

but I call him...

Ape Face!

Will you get out of here?

Don't come busting in

without knocking.

It's time for breakfast.

So? Come on, beat it.

Get out of here.

I am.

You'll be late for school.

So what do I care?

Actually, I care.

I mean, school is okay.

I got friends, sports.

Yesterday I was made captain

for today's playoff game.

Kind of neat, huh?

I'm also pretty good on water.

We got a super water-ski club.

And we're gonna put on

a real aquacade for my dad.

Oh, yeah, about my parents.

William Waring Andrews.

Well, 5' 11. 5".

The hair's too short,

but I've seen worse.

All in all,

a fantastically cool person.

(music) My, oh, my

what a wonderful... (music)

He's with Joffert and Jennings.

Public relations.

And the most beautiful person
