For the next 7 weeks there's going to be a lot of this going around.
Michele: Did you lose weight?
Romy: Actually, I have been trying this new fat free diet I invented. All I've had to eat for the past six days are gummy bears, jelly beans, and candy corns.
Michele: God, I wish I had your discipline.

Yep, it's gonna be just like that, except without the lying about inventing post it notes, because the movie ruined that for everyone!

One of my BFFs from high school is flying down to hit our 20th Reunion with me. We are making it a girl's weekend. Mainly because the people planning it apparently have no kids or their kids are now in *high school and they no longer need sitters, because there is not one single family friendly event all weekend. In fact there's only a Happy Hour on Friday night and a Dinner Saturday night. Both of which are horribly over priced. Okay, I was not on the committee, did not volunteer to help, and will not complain again about the events planned. Moving on now.

Knowing my alma mater there will be a lot of this going around too.
Christie: Sandy, hi! You look so rich! I mean, great!

Okay.

Moving.

On.

Now.

There's also going to be much of this.
Michele, Romy: [singing along to radio] Cut loose! Footloose! Kick off your sunday shoes!
[they both trail off and look at each other]
Romy: I have no idea what the rest of the lyrics are...

Seeing as we went to high school in a small beach town about 90 miles from here, she's going to fly into Orlando and we will get to ROAD TRIP down for the reunion. I think I will need to be mixing me some 80's cds for the ride. 1.5 hours in the car with NO KIDS, maybe those reunion planners were onto something here.

And I just put this at the top of my movie rental queue. Since You've Been Gone. I remember seeing it right around my 10th Reunion and dying laughing. Thought it would be good for us girls to watch during our weekend, maybe after we sleep in til noon! Oh yeah, the reunion planners totally knew what they were doing!

* People in my class could have kids who have graduated from high school and not even been teen parents. People in my class could be grandparents. Dear gracious, have I mentioned lately... OLDER THAN DIRT?!

It was really odd for me at the 10 year reunion!
