Last night, after dinner, I made some hot chocolate, grabbed my box of nail products, and curled up in front of the TV to watch (for the zillionth time) one of the greatest movies of all time: Clueless. As mentioned yesterday, Boyfriend was working late, so I decided I’d treat myself to a girly evening: manicures and a chick-flick. But not just any chick-flick. The chick-flick of ALL chick-flicks, the motherload. Almost two decades (!!!) since this movie came out, and I can still never, ever get sick of it. Ever.
I’m not sure what it is. Maybe it’s some combination of cute lingo (monet! baldwin! betty!) and Paul Rudd in his prime, with a side of RIP Brit-Murph. But this movie never gets old, and never fails to put me in a good mood. In part, I think it’s because we all wish we were BFFs with Cher Horowitz.
Yes…even if she was (cue cymbal crash) clueless. An adorable clueless, that is. (And who else laughs like hell at the “oh my gosh the freewaayyyyy” scene? It’s so ridiculous I love it.) This movie was always a staple at sleepovers growing up. In fact, while watching last night, I felt compelled to quote it on my friend’s facebook timeline, which naturally led to this conversation ensuing:
Truth be told, this conversation went on for at least an hour.
Clueless is an easy go-to when I am looking for some “me time”, but there are other favorites as well. Sometimes it’s all about the Gilmore Girls:
Though watching Rory & Lorelai eat (junk food, pancakes, Chinese food, you name it) usually makes me want to eat the equivalent.
When I was home for college breaks, my mom and I would have hours of Gilmore Girls marathons. We would also write each other handwritten letters while I was in college, addressed to “Rory” and “Lorelai”. Insert “aw” here.
How could you resist those faces? Fact: The OC jumped the shark so badly the second Marissa Cooper’s car went off the road, but Seasons 1 & 2 were golden.
And last but not least, the epitome, the absolute word in girl time:
I will always, always have a fond place in my heart for Carrie Bradshaw and the Sex & the City girls. No matter how many time I watch all the seasons (though 3 & 4 are arguably the best), I can easily get right back into another marathon. I’ll always be Team Aiden 4 Life though. The movies, not so much, but there was at least this part:
Right there with you, Charlotte York.
