Ode to the decade I failed to pay attention to.

It's okay. I was young. I only enjoyed the Magic School Bus/Reading Rainbow part of the 90's. But the father away we get from them and the more I examine them, the more sure I am that their aesthetic was the best aesthetic everrrrr.


Scott Pilgrim, Plumtree, 1997. So girl bands in the 90's were just supior to girl bands now. Actually, there aren't even girl bands anymore.


Harry Potter, 1998-2007. I was so late to the Harry Potter party it's pathetic.


Business-Lady Suits. Like Moonlighting suits, the ones that everyone but me think are ugly.


Speed, 1994. Reasons why I love this film: 1. The 90's fashion. 2. Exploding trains. 3. Keanu's Hot Bod. 4. Keanu and Sandra being adorable. 5. Keanu and Sandra making out. 6. Defusing bombs is a mythical hobby of mine.


The Cranberries, 1993. My favorite 90's music ever, they are just so
romantic.


The X-Files, 1993-2002. Television has never been the same, The X-Files influenced basically everything.


Lovely Grunge. I long for a time when this was appropriate going-out clothes.


The Chicken Doesn't Skate, 1996. Probably the best book for 8-12 ever written. (And by best I mean funnest.)


Clueless, 1995. That was harsh, Tia.


Victorian Goth. My sister wants to reinvent herself as a Victorian Goth but the current fashion industry is not complying with her dreams.


Sixpence None the Richer, 1992-2004. The best, Christian rock band ever. I dare you to find better. Their biggest hit Kiss Me was released summer 1998.

Okay, the end. Today was pretty boring apart from the Baja salad from Wendy's.
I have so many books out from the library, I can not possible read them all in time. *stresses out* Why do they insist on all coming at the same time?

Guh. I freakin LOVED the 90's! I really wish it would come back. That way people would make decent music again and I could not wash my hair and be in style. Also, I'm looking for an excuse to break out my old backpack purse and butterfly hair clips.
