It’s almost 1pm and I’ve barely even gotten out of bed today :). Clueless is on right now – I still love this movie. When I watch it now, I realize all the jokes that went totally over my head when I used to watch it when I was young (I must have been 10 or 11 the first time I saw it). One of the best lines of the movie:
Amber: “Ms. Stoeger, my plastic surgeon doesn’t want me to do any activity where balls fly at my nose.”
Dionne: “Well, there goes your social life.”
Ha, think I missed that one when I was younger. Also, missed a lot of the drug references and when they smoke a joint at the party in the valley I’m pretty sure I thought it was a ciggarette.
This movie started so many trends – my favorite was knee highs! I loved wearing knee highs and I thought I was so cool when I did, heh. I remember my outfit for the first day of sixth grade was black knee highs with a jean skirt and this mock turtle neck gray striped short sleeve shirt and I thought I was just the cutest thing ever and just like Cher. It’s a little embarassing to admit but my friends and I definitely adopted the Clueless slang too – especially using “whatever” and “as if” as much as possible.
Interesting fact: Stacy Dash, the actress who played Dione was almost 30 when she made this movie! She was almost 30 playing a 16 yr old girl, that is crazy.
I had a friend who didn’t see this movie until she was in college and then she was a little underwhelmed by it. She was totally weirded out by the fact that Cher ends up with her ex step brother. I admit it’s a little weird but it seems like they were only step brother and step sister for a short time. They aren’t related, it doesn’t seem like they grew up together either. So I don’t know, it doesn’t really bother me but she couldn’t get over it. I also think part of the reason I love the movie so much is because it reminds me of being a silly 12 year old wearing knee highs and saying as if and thinking it was the coolest thing ever.
Anyways, I think it’s finally time to get out of bed and get moving. I’m going to my friend’s house for her birthday dinner and then I have a party at another friends house. The Ex will be there but hopefully there will be no drama, no tears, no throwing shoes.
Have a good weekend bloggy buddies!! xo
