A little Mean Girls to kickoff your weekend. . . what could be better? (Maybe heading out of the office early today, getting to a gorgeous beach with fun friends, drinking corona and eating rotel-cheese dip on one of the last viable warm weekends of the year?) Anyway.
If you haven’t seen Mean Girls, you can skip this, but if you have, you’ll love it. My hilarious and posh friend Mary (we studied abroad in Oxford together. . . free ducks, Monday shirts, cheese fries, MTT, cider, and all). . . well, she felt the need to rebut her sister’s blog post claiming “Everything I ever needed to know, I learned from Troop Beverly Hills” (I haven’t seen it, but I think I’m on Mary’s side). Mary’s response:
Everything I need to know in life, I learned from Mean Girls.
Here’s a little snippet:
Fashion Advice: We only wear our hair up once a week, so I guess you picked today. We only wear jeans or track pants on Fridays. And on Wednesdays, we wear pink! // Whatever, those rules aren’t real—They were real that day I wore a vest— Because that vest was disgusting! // My nana takes her wig off when she’s drunk. // Well, I mean you wouldn’t buy a skirt without asking your friends first if it looks good on you—I wouldn’t?—Right. // Oh my god I love that skirt, where did you get it?—It was my Mom’s in the 80s—Vintage! So adorable—That’s the ugliest f-ing skirt I’ve ever seen.
Dieting: Do you wanna do something fun? Wanna go to taco bell? — I can’t go to Taco Bell I’m on an all carb diet! // Is butter a carb? // I don’t hate you cuz you’re fat…you’re fat cuz I hate you! // I’m only eating foods with less than 30 percent calories from fat….whatever, I’m getting cheese fries.
See the original blog post here, and be sure to scroll all the way down to Mary’s response in the comments.
Several of my srat sisters played Mean Girls on repeat my third year of college, but I didn’t fully appreciate it til fourth year. Tina Fey, fellow UVa alum, I [heart] you. (Did you like how I put myself in the same category with Tina Fey just now? She cracked me up yesterday morning on the Today Show, by the way, in her preview clip immediately following an interview with a polygamist and his four wives, by pointing to her wedding ring and mouthing “Just one.”)
“30 Rock” was so great last night, even though I was a bit disturbed by a couple scenes. Here’s Anna Kate’s take on several other shows that premiered this week, including “Modern Family” and “Parenthood,” which I’ve been watching also. Feel free to weigh in.
Have a great weekend!
