The other day, as I was busily blog surfing, facebooking, emailing and TV watching (yes, I am a hardcore multi-tasker) the movie Clueless came on. For nostalgic-ish reasons I left it there and after awhile I realized I was quoting nearly every line word-for-word. Seriously. I was shocked. I had no idea I remembered that movie so well.
Now, my mom has always been real big on memorization, but she preferred we focused on things like scriptures or the Gettysburg Address. However, it also assisted one brother in memorizing every (seriously, EVERY) episode of Simpsons, another from knowing all lines of any Jim Carrey movie (except The Mask, cuz really, who watched that?), and apparently me knowing a good 85% of Clueless. I would have been more impressed with myself if my mind has chosen to memorize another 90's trendy, cult classic---but I suppose I can't help it. At least in defense of memorizing that movie, I can say I liked Paul Rudd before he became all big and famous. I'm a trend starter that way.
I think my favorite line of the movie: "I feel like such a heifer. Today, I had 2 bowls of Special K, 3 pieces of turkey bacon, a handful of popcorn, 5 peanut butter m&m's, and like three pieces of licorice."
I would just like to say that I only had one bowl of Special K today.
