Can you smell the nostalgia?

I don't know what it is about this week, but I am feeling all kinds of nostalgic. ALL KINDS. I think it's the fall weather.

All you want to do is curl up with warm apple cider and reminisce, apparently. Well minus the apple cider part. I'm just trying to name-check anything but spiced pumpkin latte.

I know it's hard to claim your childhood years as the best for movies, music, TV, etc, over, well, everyone else's, but I've been drinking wine, so I'm just going to call it. I'm 26 and my youth had the best of everything.

Ask yourself this:

Will there ever be a greater love than Zack and Kelly?


Thought I'd go for Jack and Rose, didn't you? Surprises, I'm totally full of them.

Will there ever be a movie that so clearly understands the plight of the rich, American teenager?

(also, Paul Rudd. Who knew?)

Or for that matter, will there ever be a greater insult?


No, there won't. Stop trying.

Will there ever be a better teen pop star?

There is not one person on earth who has caused as many insecurities for me as this woman. God bless her.

Or a better fashion statement?

You're damn straight I had a pair. And I proudly wore them with my blue jeans and A&F shirt and a ribbon in my ponytail. Okay, just kidding about the last part. Only the cool girls did that.

Now Dr. Martens sells these:


Ugh, go home.

How about a better teen heartthrob? 

Yeah, you're right. We probably don't have this market cornered. But thanks for giving your best, Jason. (Also, I definitely just googled Brandon Priestley to find this picture)

Okay, last question: what about a better musical collaboration? 

Oh god, I couldn't even link that with a straight face. Go home, ladies (did I already use that insult tonight?), your hair looks like shit.

What I really meant was this:




  1. Ahhh, this post is EXACTLY how I'm feeling today! I just want to put on warm sweat pants, fuzzy socks, and curl up with something hot to drink (sans pumpkin spice ahaha) and a stack of old movies. It is definitely this weather!

  2. i was nodding my head the whole time. love nostalgic posts. keep em coming.

  3. Every 26 year old is nodding their head in agreement & bumping some Brandy right now... well said.

  4. Haha yes! Let's just forget about everything else and watch Gentlemen Prefer Blondes with some hot chocolate, please. And then of course Clueless.

  5. Okay, you are so right. But I was feeling a little pity for ol' Brandon. Thought I'd throw him a bone.

  6. Haha, thanks Helene. Maybe I'll just start doing Nostalgia Tuesday until I run out of everything that was cool.

  7. Haha, yes! Now I need to go listen to her "Have you Ever" song...
