Dazed and Confused

Have you ever NOT seen a movie that everyone has seen? A movie that people quote at parties, while you're thinking to yourself, "I have ZERO idea what these people are talking about but I'm going to smile and laugh and pretend like I do."

I smile and laugh and pretend I do a lot.  About everything.

So chances are if you're engaged in a conversation with me, I'm probably only understanding about 50-75% of what your talking about, but I nod and act interested just so I don't make a f*cking a*shole out of myself.

I thought you should know.

So back to my original point - My husband has roped me into watching Dazed and Confused tonight. I was really hoping to watch Eat Pray Love, but sadly, I lost the tv watching battle.  Brian can't believe I've never seen this movie, and to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure how I haven't seen it either.

Now, don't get me wrong, I love coming of age movies.  I could quote Sixteen Candles from beginning to end, 365 days a year. 

But this movie -  I'm thinking I've never seen it, or been able to sit through the whole thing because it's totally told from a male point of view.  My dear husband is dying laughing and I hate to admit it, but I'm contemplating putting myself out of my misery and heading to bed at 9 pm on a Saturday night.

Not to mention watching all of these 18 year olds having an awesome time while I sit on my couch in my bathrobe is rather depressing.

I even suggested to the hubs that we throw on some clothes and head out for a quick drink - maybe even engage in some role playing....pretend we just met at the bar, do a little flirting, let him take me home, and you know, have his way with me.

He looked at me like I was criminally insane.

Maybe if I wasn't wearing this ratty old bathrobe, I'd be more convincing....



  1. I freaking love that movie. Like own it love it. :)

  2. Lol.... I've never even HEARD of this movie, let alone seen it! You're not alone!

  3. HA I have seen this movie only 1 time, and I wasn't even paying attention so I don't even remember it. Russ thought it was crazy that I had never seen it and he made me sit and watch it. I wasn't "getting it" so I got bored and just got on my phone. Terrible, I know. But I didn't grow up in that type of environment, so I don't get why it's so awesome, or funny. I think it's somewhat sad and embarrassing. But I grew up in the country where people partied at a to each his own ;)
